GER to GER’s USA Founder Contacts the US Federal Trade Commission
“Trip Advisor’s Unethical Practices”
GERtoGER’s USA Founder has officially contacted the US Federal Trade Commission (email included below)… So please kindly “ignore” the fraudulent and fake defamatory Reviews about #GERtoGER on #TripAdvisor & #LonelyPlanet #ThornTree – FTC is investigating Trip Advisor’s Practices. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is like the FBI for Commercial Services that investigate “fraud, unethical practices, etc.”
Also please kindly ignore unethical bloggers that are known ‘industry trolls/disruptors’ such as ‘Fresh Coffee Stains’ and her posts: 1) “Ger to Ger: Goat’s milk and stinky cheese in Mongolia’s Gobi desert…” 2) “Warning: Do NOT do Ger to Ger program – Lonely Planet”.
Bloggers like her are industry disruptors that troll well-known people/organizations to generate unethical sensationalism to drive readers to her blog and unethically drive business/travelers towards competitors that they state in their blogs.
Thank you kindly!
GER to GER Team
OFFICIAL LETTER TO THE FTC
TRIP ADVISOR: CORPORATE FRAUD/ANTITRUST – OPPRESSES ANOTHER AMERICAN; THIS EMAIL SUPPORTS SENATOR BALDWIN’S INVESTIGATION REQUEST
Owing to recent events – Senator Tammy Baldwin requesting your agency to Investigate into Trip Advisor’s Review Policies (Mexico Rape/Trip Advisor Review Policies) – I’m contacting you to politely inform you that these issues are MUCH LARGER IN SCOPE than you are probably aware of (Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree also falls into this issue as well – it’s a shared system/ethics issue). This email and the links that I have provided aims to HIGHLIGHT THOSE ISSUES/NETWORKS (Corporate Fraud, AntiTrust, etc.) AND THE “THE ACHILLES HEAL” of both Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree.
I’M 100% AMERICAN – YES, I NEED FTC PROTECTION
1. Yes, I am an American Citizen (Alaskan born) www.Zanjan-Fromer.com
2. Yes, I am the American Founder of a USAID supported overseas community tourism initiative www.GERtoGER.org, and www.Responsible.Tours
3. Yes, I have been unethically publicly defamed on Trip Advisor by scammers, trolls, unethical special interest groups, etc.
4. Yes, I have contacted Trip Advisor and provided facts/evidence/contracts that rebukes the fake/false defamatory reviews – unethical special interest groups, competitors, scammers, etc.
5. Yes, Trip Advisor unethically allows the defamation to continue as stated in an email correspondence (they will not read any of my submitted materials; emails, evidence, links, webpages, etc.; I have included it below toward the end of this email), hence “AntiTrust/Corporate Fraud” as they are unethically allowing/encouraging the public-targeting of the American Founder via false/fraudulent defamatory reviews (“ignorance is bliss” – fixing isn’t required if Trip Advisor doesn’t acknowledge the existence of facts/evidence, etc.; which means ANY/ALL complaints THAT I MAKE can be placed at the bottom of a pile of other paperworks never to be addressed…”)
6. Today, Trip Advisor has become “Weaponized” and is easily corrupted; both internally by its staff and externally by burn accounts, trolls, scammers, unethical competitors, etc.
7. Today, I have dedicated years to investigate all the methods, tactics, etc., that explains the processes; also I have collected Trip Advisor correspondences that actually incriminate themselves.
THE SENATOR BALDWIN CONNECTION
In short, how is this all connected with Senator Baldwin’s case concerning Trip Advisor and the Mexican Rape cases…? “Ethics” – Trip Advisor has massive “commercial” ethics/conflict of interest issues on many of their operational fronts (social/economic); both internal (staff/policies) and external (scams, frauds, burn accounts, etc). Trip Advisor/Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree both DO NOT have the established frameworks to “ethically verify” any/all reviews to ensure that innocent people/businesses are not victimized via their existing “honor-base” review/complaint systems; just because you ask a lion not to eat you – doesn’t mean it won’t if it’s hungry… likewise, if you ask a professional ‘internet troll, unethical competitor or scammer’ not to troll you – doesn’t mean that they won’t if they don’t like you (racism, jealous of achievements, etc.).
BOTH TRIP ADVISOR AND LONELY PLANET’S THORN TREE GET IT WRONG
1. THEY BOTH DON’T verify facts via legally recognized methods – it pushes “hearsay” as “truths” that protects the victimizers while hurting the innocent people/businesses without requesting “burden of proof” from the users.
2. THEY BOTH DON’T require members to be legally responsible for their reviews, etc.
3. THEY BOTH DON’T verify the authenticity of its members/user IDs, etc., accounts; anyone can make a burn account to harm others without any law enforcement issues – what starts as a “PLANTED” white lie soon becomes a publicly manipulated international campaign that even receives Trip Advisor/Lonely Planet support as they DO NOT WISH to delete fake/false defamatory reviews.
4. When genuine reports/reviews are provided – Trip Advisor will often likewise delete as they “do not verify” the truthfulness of the review’s complaints NOR complements, etc.; IT’S ALL BEST GUESSES BEING PASSED OR DELETED AS INDUSTRY TRUTHS WITHOUT ANY “CHECKS AND BALANCES” NOR “DUE PROCESS” NOR “BURDEN OF PROOF”, ETC.
THE ACHILLES HEAL – TRIP ADVISOR AND LONELY PLANET’S THORN TREE
The “Achilles heal” is that TRIP ADVISOR/THORN TREE HAVE NO MEANS OF VERIFYING THE TRUTHFULNESS OF ANY/ALL REVIEWS NOR THEIR USER ACCOUNTS… Even their “Report” method which is a “drop down list” doesn’t provide anyone to properly explain and can be easily manipulated as well as “Truthful” reports can be selected as “False” without submission of any “Burden of Proof” or evidence – hence the corruption goes both ways… Hence, an American Girl who gets RAPED IN MEXICO has her posts deleted WHILE an American Boy who gets INTERNATIONALLY SOCIALLY/ECONOMICALLY OPPRESSED has his posts deleted – AND BOTH ARE IGNORED/SILENCED BY TRIP ADVISOR AND OTHERS!
BOTH ARE ALL MIXED UP – THEY DON’T KNOW TRUTH FROM FRAUD
Good posts are being created and deleted by unethical tactics, and likewise False/Fake Defamatory posts are being unethically created and deleted by unethical tactics… In short, Trip Advisor has NO MEANS TO VERIFY ANY/ALL REVIEWS NOR THE USER ACCOUNTS. Anyone can create a GMAIL email account then go onto Trip Advisor/Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree and create a fake burn account to post anything that they desired about anyone/any business.
For those background information/tactics – I have tracked, monitored and investigated Trip Advisor for over 6 years… I have managed to combat this for years but still today the same issue exists without any improvements made by both Trip Advisor/Lonely Planet.
PROMOTION OF FRAUD/FALSE/FAKE DEFAMATORY REVIEWS IS DANGEROUS TO OVERSEAS AMERICANS!
Trip Advisor when internally/externally manipulated, etc., is a “dangerous” platform that goes far beyond just reviews – it can literally initiate overseas extremist who are sensitive about their nation to socially, economically and physically oppress innocent people and businesses.
THE SMOKING GUN AND MORE – TRIP ADVISOR CAUGHT!
When I confronted Trip Advisor about this (facts, evidence, links, etc.), the response I received was truly shocking… (the above supplied “reference blog” links have the entire correspondences and more)
TripAdvisor Support <email@example.com>: “Dear GertoGer, We will not review any of the content in your last email, we will not read your web-pages, we will not take actions…” Sincerely, Jane – TripAdvisor Community Support (Trip Advisor Community Support Supervisor)
Zanjan Fromer <firstname.lastname@example.org>: “Ok Jane, then how about this… In accordance with Trip Advisor’s Guidelines – I’m formally requesting Trip Advisor to remove/delete any/all “legally unverified/unsupportive” defamatory reviews where my “personal name” Zanjan Fromer is unlawfully used as this is Malicious Harassment/Public Defamation without evidence, burden of proof, etc., on a public forum owned by Trip Advisor Company…”
TripAdvisor Support <email@example.com>: “Dear GertoGer, Please note that TripAdvisor Moderators and Support agents will not address matters that have been escalated into the legal arena…”
There is so much more to your investigation – Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet have become corrupted (internally/externally) and their actions are indeed 100% in-line with legal definition of AntiTrust, Corporate Fraud and Market Manipulation.
As I have been investigating this matter for years – I would like to offer my professional insights in order to ensure that more Americans are not social-economically oppressed, raped and worse, “killed”, owing to Trip Advisor’s/Lonely Planet’s Review Policy Issues that stirs up localized extremism, etc.
I invite you to contact me whenever it is required… These companies have to change their policies – I would hate for more Americans to suffer as we have suffered.
