10. BBX Causes Problems for IRTA

BBX – PCI non-compliant screenshot. Click to enlarge. Opens in a new window.

In recent posts I have explained how my investigations into BBX, a Hong Kong-based, Australian run barter business have revealed criminal conduct on the part of BBX management. I have also alluded to the challenges that those who are involved have in being associated with the ailing (and I posit), dead and dying brand. I now discuss the issues that IRTA face in dealing with the BBX challenge. While it is a simple thing for them to handle – they are bad boys, get out, go – there certainly are issues! Here’s my take on it all. [Read more…]

Qoin’s Cover Up Commences

Qoin starts the cover-up by closing companies, this one owes 95k - oops!

Qoin starts the cover-up 4 days after announcement of The Qoin Con by closing companies, this one just happens to owe €95k – oops! Hello Dutch Authorities??? Hello IRTA???

In this post I share recent Qoin activity in closing down multiple entities (and that included one bankruptcy) all done since I announced publication of my book The Qoin Con. I explain how the cover-up is underway – tracking this all the way back to the Executive of the industry body, IRTA. Exposure of the Qoin fraud is done here real-time in summary format, but my book gives details and the source documents. I recommend that interested parties in The Netherlands make complaints to the authorities (and I explain how to do this) and that the Board of IRTA should take undertake remedial action against their corrupt Executive who are still actively covering up the fraud.

IRTA’s Cover-Up of The Qoin Con

irta-exposedIn this post I give details of the way that for years IRTA has actively covered up the Qoin Con. I take a stab at explaining their likely motives and suggest that IRTA’s Executive (specifically Annette Riggs & Ron Whitney) have to put it politely, serious egg-on-face now that Qoin is in the process of self-destruction and the truth is coming out. I give a history of their misconduct and end with a damning condemnation of the ethics of the organisation’s top leadership concluding that conman Daniel Evans was indeed dead-right when he claimed that they were little more than an old-boys network [and more].

Dear IRTA: The Tradeqoin Fraud

This is an open letter to IRTA, regarding the ongoing Tradeqoin fraud, a failed business operated by an IRTA Board Member, brazenly misrepresenting its performance AND having solicited funds from the public by way of Crowdfunding on the back of such misrepresentations. I plead with them to act to stop the rot, before more muck comes out in public and more people lose money as a result of the scam being conducted within their own ranks. [Read more…]

Interview with TradeXchange – Netherlands

tradexchange-netherlandsIn this Interview with proprietors of TradeXchange, a Dutch Barter company, I dig deeper into a range of barter topics, their consistent long-term criticism of IRTA and UC; their conflict with fellow Dutch Trade Exchange operators Tradeqoin; as well as diving into some personality issues.

It will be a tough read for some, as these guys don’t beat about the bush and in that ‘delightful’ Dutch way, they just never give up calling a spade a spade!

Enjoy. [Read more…]

Analysing Tradeqoin’s Membership

Tradeqoin Membership Analysis, October 2014: Effectively only 6% of that claimed!

Tradeqoin Membership Analysis, October 2014: Effectively only 6% of that claimed!

In this post I reveal the detailed results of a two week telemarketing research into Tradeqoin’s claimed “200 Members” from which I derived the 6% Membership figure for the graph in my previous post. I then analyse the response from Tradeqoin’s director Rob van Hilten to questions from a crowdfunding investor who has pulled out [Krispijn] comparing this with my research, and I discuss the possibility of a complaint to the IRTA’s Ethics committee concluding that not only is a complaint very likely, but that a guilty verdict is inevitable.
