ZANJAN FROMER’S NEAR DECADE LONG INVESTIGATION INTO ORGANIZED TRANSNATIONAL TRIP ADVISOR CRIMES; CASES/INFO/ETC.
We’ve been patient for Change – however – it’s taking too long… we have to share our side to protect the nomadic families, our people and our interests:
LAST UPDATED AUGUST 5, 2020 – 16:37 (EAST-COAST TIME) – THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS – CHECK TIME CODE REGULARLY
I AM about ETHICS as both my Career and OTHER Professionals HAVE ALREADY Proven OVER AND OVER Again.
“A Mongolian NGO called “Ger to Ger” is creating opportunities for nomadic communities to take power back. The organization promotes a community-based ecotourism program for visitors who are interested in supporting these communities while also ensuring profits stay within the community. They work with numerous rural residents and nomadic communities across the country to develop their capacities and skills while offering instalment loan plans to pay for necessary equipment and lodging. This program has made it possible for many families to support themselves and continue their nomadic lifestyle by hosting one or two groups of travellers each week. Eighty percent of the profit from these homestay experiences is given directly back to the families, generating needed income during the three-month tourism season in Mongolia.”
A Mongolian NGO called “Ger to Ger” is creating opportunities for nomadic communities to take power back…” February 2019
This webpage is being progressively developed to CLEARLY show “HOW” Trip Advisor is the “GO TO” venue for fraud and criminal activities OWING to its EASY TO EXPLOIT vulnerabilities – as it is indeed a DANGEROUS tool that can be used against good people and businesses owing to its faulty safety systems as…
ANY FRAUD, TROLL, SCAMMER, ETC., CAN MAKE A TRIP ADVISOR ACCOUNT VIA A FAKE GMAIL ACCOUNT; and,
Trip Advisor’s Guidelines DOESN’T mean anything if Trip Advisor willfully violates their own Guidelines – themselves.
“On Trip Advisor, anyone can write reviews anonymously. Anonymous reviews allow people to write whatever they want, without being held accountable. This opens the floodgates to manipulation.” Says Mariana Madureira who does a PhD in Brazil – LINK: TOURISM WATCH
Extortion, LIBEL, etc., via Trip Advisor
As childish it may seem – Cartoon Network nailed the issue with “Extortion Reviews” and Manipulation – many times this has happened at GER to GER with low budget travelers that threaten us with libelous reviews if we don’t give them money for services they enjoyed.
MY PUBLIC STATEMENT about
UNRESOLVED TRANSNATIONAL CRIMES VIA TRIP ADVISOR
“I am sincerely concerned about the exceptional level of negligence that exists within TripAdvisor concerning unresolved CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES on their Corporate Website; extremely ONE-SIDED bullying and PUBLIC defamation (libel) directed towards me (and/or anyone else) by frauds/trolls designed to create social economic deprivation without due process, due diligence, burden of proof NOR representation.”
Some may ask why it’s taken me so long to clear my name, mainly I tried to ignore this whole drama as there is no ‘win-win’ method; if I press criminal charges while abroad then they will say how terrible I am – if I don’t press criminal charges while abroad then they’ll still say how terrible I am… in the end – I NEVER desire to have anyone to be locked-up abroad; however, I am interested in seeking long overdue justice via the United States against those who’ve willfully violated a handful of Defamation Laws, Antitrust Laws, Cyber/Personal Security, etc. As I know when the public reads their libelous words, I’m sure it sounds VERY convincing – so I decided by “my actions” not to engage with them publicly for YEARS so that I can show the WORLD that after so much time that I indeed have “self-control” and the ability to maintain “my personal dignity” while I am being publicly slandered and defamed… which is contrary to what they have written about me – trying to make me look aggressive, etc. – which is not true as I have more than substantially proven that for not only the past 6+ years but more importantly my entire life (as being respectful and non-aggressive is my personality) regardless of the continuous victimization (offline/online) that was and still is directed towards me via Trip Advisor, etc., which has recklessly endangered my life, my personal security, and my social economic opportunities (to create deprivation) and successes while I was abroad on a daily basis.
“This WHOLE situation is like a BAD CAR ACCIDENT caused by the manufacturer (Trip Advisor) that didn’t recall its vehicle (its easily exploited/manipulated website) and owing to its OWN faulty safety systems that weren’t taken seriously by the Manufacturer (Trip Advisor) which ultimately killed and/or severely damaged countless good people and businesses – HENCE – Intentional Reckless Endangerment by the Manufacturer (Trip Advisor)” – FROMER
THE PATTERN – A HISTORY OF ANTITRUST/CORPORATE FRAUD?!
“Trip Advisor’s unlawful antitrust/corporate fraud issues has exceptionally damaged my credibility and our markets as well as our personal safety and much more…”
Trip Advisor has ALREADY been Fined for NOT doing enough to STOP False Defamatory Reviews (2014 Antitrust Lawsuit); and, THEY still keep repeating the same Antitrust/Corporate Fraud issues till today.
Trip Advisor has a BAD HISTORY of Antitrust issues and I’d be glad to assist folks to learn more. Even if a handful of folks have opted to remove their libel (some remain) – they’ve already done incredible social economic damage as proven by our bookings and financial statements that are parallel with Trip Advisor’s negligence.
I maintain a PDF capture of Trip Advisor website as well as the Internet Archive Database also provides references as well; they can not escape from what they’ve done.
Established Trip Advisor Members TEACHING Others how to LIBELOUSLY TROLL on Trip Advisor Safely
When REVIEWERS are not willing to take responsibility for what they write – then there is something SERIOUSLY WRONG… and if other members are teaching how to Safely Troll businesses and people then this has advanced into the realm of ORGANIZED TRANSNATIONAL CRIME.
I have screen captured this whole discussion as evidence.
For YEARS (7+ years) Trip Advisor doesn’t do anything. Prior to this email that was received in 2017 – I cleverly located their email address – which they don’t give out. After only a few email exchanges when I started to introduce the documentation, evidence, contracts, terms & conditions, etc., Trip Advisor sent me this email and still till this day they’ve locked me out from being able to post on Trip Advisor via my username – they will not allow me to Ethically Represent myself… I can only access the drop-down menu which is useless as they continue to ignore. Much of that information that was being shared is also included within this webpage.
Owing to Trip Advisor’s World-Wide Issues, which seems to be ongoing for over a decade, today there are literally 100s (if not 1000s) of resources, news articles, etc., to refer too… and yes, the style of writing that Trip Advisor has allowed is 100% Libel as this webpage explains thoroughly:
- 9News – How you could get sued for a nasty online review
- Minc – How to Remove False & Defamatory Reviews
- FindLaw – Online Reviews & Defamation
- Wales Online – When Does a bad Review Become Libel?
- When is Google Review Considered Defamatory?
- Hotel Files $74,500 Defamation Suite Against Anonymous TripAdvisor Reviewer
- The Conversation – Before You Write that Scathing Online Review, Beware of Defamation

Trip Advisor Community Supervisor ALLOWS Libelous Trolling VIA Antitrust/Corporate Fraud FOR YEARS
100% Willful Suppression of Evidential Findings, Documentation, etc….
When Trip Advisor allows ORGANIZED TRANSNATIONAL CRIMES (all using the exact same Trip Advisor Thread) to plague its platform – then this is no longer just about the reviewer – this now becomes an Antitrust and Corporate Fraud issue as Trip Advisor willfully allows exceptionally damaging false defamatory reviews to remain without due process, due diligence, burden of proof NOR representation (for YEARS Trip Advisor has unethically violated their own Guidelines and have deleted my “ethical responses” backed by documentation and evidence [100% in accordance with their Guidelines] as well as disabling my ability to represent ourselves – we can not respond ethically since 2017).
Via the AFOREMENTIONED, it would seem that Trip Advisor willfully engages the following for many years:
- Corporate Fraud
- Transnational Organized Crimes by ALLOWING & FACILITATING Libel, Reckless Endangerment, etc. VIA their Corporate Website.
I maintain the entire email correspondence as well as screen captures of the entire thread – I was indeed following Trip Advisor Guidelines… hence, Trip Advisor has been caught in Antitrust/Corporate Fraud yet AGAIN; not ONLY do they not allow me to represent myself – but they continue to ensure that I am unable ethically share info by disabling my ability to post information to ensure that the very libelous public defamation remains on their website uncontested for YEARS.
As EXPLAINED further down in this webpage – those VERY people are in engaged in unlawful libel/defamation are the criminals, scammers and con-artists caught defrauding nomadic families across Mongolia and worse (we, ourselves, had to involve local police to ensure our and the local people’s safety – though we never pressed criminal charges – the local police suggested that we should have). Trip Advisor gives these super #BADTOURISTS, CRIMINALS and TROLLs a voice to slander me publicly by my FULL NAME (100% against Trip Advisor’s Guidelines), yet, they will not allow me to ethically share information that 100% REBUKES their false defamatory statements; hence this webpage.

KNOWLEDGE SHARING REAL EXPERIENCES – RESEARCH FINDINGS
FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS I HAD TO BE PATIENT
THERE IS AN OLD SAYING:
“THERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU CAN ONLY LEARN DURING A STORM”
Scams, Trolls, Libel & Trip Advisor
This video “metaphorically” portrays the overall Criminal Issues on Trip Advisor & their fraudulent tactics (the methodology) with with both me a GER to GER perfectly…
Until I started to share the truth about Trip Advisor and the Criminal Libel/Scam Activities on its website… it didn’t matter how cautious and courteous I was to avoid any/all BAD CAR ACCIDENTs – Trip Advisor had always promoted the fraudulent scams “as truth” to make it look like the cautious professional was/is always responsible for the accidents; which isn’t the truth – hence – I couldn’t remain a silent victim anymore.
As soon as I allowed my voice to be used by rural nomadic families and communities to relay the ‘real’ truths with eye witnesses (factual documentation, etc.), as they can’t voice themselves (no internet/they don’t speak English), this ultimately made me the target for criminals that desired the truth to be deeply buried from public knowledge. Mainly from 2010-ish till 2016-ish, they’ve actively tried to silence me via fraudulent libelous reporting and online defamation on Trip Advisor; and unfortunately owing to Trip Advisor’s negligence, they have willfully allowed the Scammers/Criminals/Trolls to publicly attack a VERY CAUTIOUS PROFESSIONAL. So after GLOBALLY exposing this “con” to many agencies/authorities/businesses/etc – from 2017 till today there has only been 1 or 2 that have attempted to exploit this scam; generally it’s all good now except for having to clear my name from some outdated fraudulent reviews made by those that were caught engaging in criminal activities abroad. YES we called the police but we didn’t press any charges against them. Those criminals are the ones that generally plague Trip Advisor till today with their VERY outdated libelous posts.
2018 “FIRST-EVER” GER to GER Trip Advisor Business Account Launched
To prove to Trip Advisor just how wrong all the prior libelous statements were/are – I established the “Official” GER to GER Trip Advisor Page and asked travelers to share their experiences… The results were as I expected – AS ALWAYS WE DO AWESOME WORKS!
Despite one or two frauds, the majority of global travelers, have clearly shown a well establish pattern [“NORMAL OPERATIONS”]: 1) they are all well informed 2) they all know what to expect 3) they all appreciate both me and my staff 4) they all greatly enjoy their nomadic experiences along their community based tourism routes 5) there are NO issues like how the scammers try to fraudulently report 6) etc., etc., etc… AND DESPITE the travelers CLEARLY EXPLAINING the real situation – Trip Advisor still willfully allows the fraudulent defamation to exist on their website. Hence, Trip Advisor has serious internal issues in relation to their ‘faulty safety systems’ to prevent reckless endangerment of good people and businesses of which I will explain via this webpage.
Lastly, which is EXCEPTIONALLY important – Trip Advisor doesn’t properly capture “the reality” e.g. our exceptional health and safety record, the countless times that I have rendered emergency assistance that saved people’s lives (owing to travelers’ carelessness), prevented numerous groups of travelers from being injured or worse when pinned-down during natural disasters/lightening storms/floods/etc… YES indeed, Trip Advisor DOES NOT accurately provide proper context – the fact is – Trip Advisor has never properly represented 99.99% of our operational SOP nor our successes until I took proactive actions; nor has Trip Advisor highlighted our incredible level of Social Responsibility, Financial Equity for the Marginalized/Poor, Fulfillment of the United Nations SDGs, etc.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, AS MANY ISSUES ARISE FROM MISINFORMATION – LET ME SHARE SOME INFO ABOUT ME
Firstly, I am a well known and respected international film industry specialist for Mongolia… I have a long history of credibility.
Secondly on a more personal note: I’m NOT racist (though kindly note that I am not Iranian), I have NO intolerance of people of different religions (though kindly note that I am not Muslim) NOR do I judge anyone based on their social and political beliefs – I’m Apolitical Moderate (I support both Liberals and Conservatives, AS A NON-PARTISAN, in their efforts towards a better United States of America / I’m NOT a communist NOR a socialist NOR a marxist NOR a fascist, etc.); hence, my heart and mind has always been open to those that are not ignorant and hateful of others (I’m soooo not aggressive by any measure). I strongly believe that women are equal to men – and though I am NOT gay NOR bisexual (I’m 100% Heterosexual male Alaskan THAT IS respectful to the importance of women) – if you respect me for who and what I am, I’ll respect you as well… HOWEVER, as I don’t broadcast to world what I do in my bedroom and I’d appreciate it if you do the same; my personal interests in people are limited to my standards – I’m not anti-social – I’m selectively social. I have spent most of my life helping the marginalized and poor to succeed via countless social economic development initiatives as well as via film/TV exposure, etc… More can be researched via my websites as YOU will see that I have a HUGE HEART – otherwise – why would I do all the works that I do to help others for almost no salary?! EXACTLY, I HAVE A HUGE HEART!
Thirdly, I am a well known and respected Social Economic Development Specialist for Mongolia…
THIS IS A SHORT-LIST OF HOW BOTH GER TO GER (VIA COMMUNITY BASED TOURISM) AND I HAVE SUPPORTED THE UNITED NATIONS MDGs/SDGs FOR OVER 15+ YEARS AS A PART OF OUR ORGANIZATIONAL SOP (“WE CARE”)
GER to GER’s Living Like a Local –
Nomadic “REALITY” Experiences
GER TO GER’S NOMADIC EXPERIENCES ARE 100% about being GOOD HUMANS and experiencing THEIR nomadic realities via old school travel
(kindly note that we do offer fully packaged high-end tours and expeditions for those that desire a vacation)
KINDLY NOTE THAT ALL NOMADIC FAMILIES PROVIDE: 3 hearty meals a day, unlimited teas and drinks, NOMADIC GERS (shelters), tons of geographical/cultural observational opportunities (as we instruct), HORSES/OX CARTS/ETC., AND GUIDES… JUST FOR A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS (for an average of a week) BUT as you will read in the next section – NOT ONE OF TRIP ADVISOR SCAMMERS MENTIONS THIS – THEY WANT TO INTENTIONALLY MISLEAD YOU INTO THINKING THEY ARE PAYING $1000S…
I have traveled the world countless times – visiting all destinations (across the EU/ UK/ NORWAY/ SWEDEN/ GERMANY/ SPAIN/ SWITZERLAND/ ROME/ FRANCE/ GREECE/ TURKEY/ UK/ USA/ ALASKA/ CANADA/ Etc.) – GER to GER’s Nomadic Experiences (no matter how raw and adventurous they can be) are still ‘top tier’ experiences. There is NO PLACE ON PLANET EARTH that will let you experience as much as you can for only a few hundred dollars (for a week!) that includes all the aforementioned service and more! When you know you are ONLY paying a few hundred dollars – YOU KNOW that what you are paying for is a ‘value for money experience’ and not a fully packaged expedition NOR tour; common sense folks – but we also provide tons of information before/during to properly prepare everyone (emails, online/offline info, 2 hour trainings, Q&As, terms & conditions, etc.).
For Decades Rural Nomadic Families were seen as backwards, uneducated, easily exploited, marginalized, below the poverty line, etc… That’s when I SET OUT TO ESTABLISH CHANGE VIA GER TO GER; GENERATE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES and MORE.
COMBATTING RACISM & SOCIAL ECONOMIC DEPRIVATION VIA EDUCATION AND “REALITY EXPERIENCES”, etc.
“We WANT the Nomads to be TRUE to themselves and NOT what travelers’ expect them to be – that’s the whole point of GER to GER’s Live Like a Nomad with Nomadic Families (REALITY Experiences) – and the KEY to LONGTERM SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS”
WE DON’T HIDE THE REALITIES – BUT RATHER – WE’VE ALWAYS PROMOTED IT TRANSPARENTLY; in fact on our website, in our marketing, via emails, during the 2 hour trainings, terms & conditions, etc., we’ve ALWAYS stated that any/all Nomadic Experiences’ itineraries are subject to immediate change at the will of the local people and nomadic families. As it’s about “REALITY” – weather, culture, day to day routines, travelers’ safety, nomadic families’ safety, etc., will and may directly influence the Living Like a Local Nomadic Experiences (any/all trips with nomadic families) and they (the locals/nomadic families) have 100% authority to make any change necessary without informing us at GER to GER. We’ve ALSO clearly stated that there will be different types of nomadic families: 1) energetic nomads that will actively spend time with travelers, 2) shy nomads that travelers will have try to kindly engage the nomads as well as 3) traditional nomads which means travelers need to respectfully observe and/or go out for hikes and treks, etc., as they are not jaded nor rude – they are traditional (by their culture they just want travelers to rest/eat – if travelers try to engage them they may indeed ignore the travelers.)
HERE IS THE SHORT-LIST OF THE MORE…. THE UNITED NATION’S SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS THAT WE OPERATIONALLY SUPPORT:
- SDG 1 – NO POVERTY: 80% of Humanitarian Trips’ a.k.a. Live Like a Nomad’s finances (per person – so if there are 4 travelers then it is 4×80%) are returned to rural nomads, drivers, etc.; 20% towards rural communities’ marketing and workshops.
- SDG 2 – ZERO HUNGER: We have/continue to employ nomadic families who are the poorest of the poor.
- SDG 3 – GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING: trainings on health/safety/reduce sanitation illnesses (Hepatitis, etc.); incomes for medical insurance, visits, medication, surgeries, etc.
- SDG 4 – QUALITY EDUCATION: Via workshops/incomes nomadic adults/children are receiving education via workshops (locals/internationals), schools, high schools and universities.
- SDG 5 – GENDER EQUALITY: Over 70% of our national managers are women; rurally, women care for travelers’ family experience (food, drink, etc.) while men generally guide (though some women guide).
- SDG 6 – CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION: (TRAINING/OPERATIONS) 1) nomads/travelers – “Leave No Trace” 2) waste management to mitigate watershed damages along routes, etc.
- SDG 7 – AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY: assisted all nomadic families to obtain savings accounts across Mongolia – credit histories used for financial services/small-loans to procure solar/wind powered units.
- SDG 8 – DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: Social economic development via tourism while combatting negative aspects of open market growth. Over 90% of HR are rural; via “Geotourism” we strengthen rural supply chains.
- SDG 9 – INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE: “GER to GER” is the Mongol Empire’s ancient “kinetic supply chain” – today this ancient supply chain advances Mongolia’s social economic aspirations.
- SDG 10 – REDUCE INEQUALITIES: In addition to financial equality, SDG initiatives in Mongolia and abroad – for the last 6+ years we’ve been tracking, mapping, countering, etc., a variety of “inequalities” from Asia to EU to mitigate home-grown issues across multiple countries/internet-platforms.
- SDG 11 – SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES: GERtoGER meshes “kinetic” and “static” supply chains into itineraries, products, etc., towards advancing social economic development. GERtoGER’s founder has spent 23+ years assisting Mongolia through its post-Soviet transitional development (tourism, meat, cashmere) – first USAID funded “The Competitiveness Initiative”.
- SDG 12 – RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION: 1) travelers are trained on “subsistence nomadic lifestyles, traditions, history, etc.” 2) nomadic tribes are provided with cashmere-alternatives owing to overgrazing issues (sharp increase in goat numbers); sustainable eco-incomes vs. land degradation incomes that impacts nomadism, livestock, GDPs, nature/environment.
- SDG 13 – CLIMATE ACTION: We have conducted Nomad Relief Efforts during climatic disasters; films, media pieces, awareness campaigns, etc. 2) We established networks ‘that can’ monitor trends (goats, desertification, watershed situations, weather impacts on land degradation, etc.)
- SDG 14 – LIFE BELOW WATER: Via workshops all herder/travelers are trained about the importance of water resources in relation to mitigating waste related issues, etc. Though Mongolia may not have oceans – the quality of Mongolia’s watersheds are vital to nomadic populations throughout the country. Mr. Fromer assisted USAID Gobi Initiative’s “Watershed Monitoring” program works as the quality of the watersheds directly impacts Mongolia’s GDPs (cashmere, meat, tourism) as nomadic families are the core “node” of all three industries.
- SDG 15 – LIFE ON LAND: Via workshops herders/travelers are trained about the importance of land resources in relation to mitigating waste related issues, watershed impacts on land quality, weather/climatic degradation of land, etc., in addition to serious issues pertaining to overgrazing, etc., GER to GER has established nomadic networks ‘that can’ monitor such remote concerns (GDP concerns).
- SDG 16 – PEACE, JUSTICE, AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS: We promote the UN’s UDHRs within Mongolia, social media, etc. Mr. Fromer encourages all countries to “maintain the peace” via making the general public aware of social-issues (extremists, oppression OPS, racial hate CRIMES, etc.) that may indeed hinder social economic development.
- SDG 17 – PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS: Via social media networks (Facebooking, Twitter, etc.), partners, donors, etc., we proactively expand our initiatives.
- “Responsible-Tours.org” established by GER to GER and the Founder, this new Initiative is being launched by “The Global Practitioners” to assist International CBTs, CSR Initiatives, alternative community travel networks and Geotourism Initiatives
- “LastLifeLine.org” under the GERtoGER Foundation this new Initiative aims to match Global Issues of the aforementioned “MDGs/SDGs” that require exposure to better link with like-minded organizations.
Responsible Travel Notes:
* All Humanitarian Trips and Homestays are 100% “Reality Trips” that are managed and operated by locals and nomadic families; GER to GER Office operates ONLY AS A Humanitarian “Travel Agent” for communities (these are non-tour experiences – though we do offer expeditions and tours).
* GER to GER humanitarian trips is about “Reality” – real families, real lifestyles, real situation, etc. (who are the Mongols? And not about our expectations).
* GER to GER humanitarian trips are not an amusement park experience – it’s about awareness/respecting nomadic lifestyle and learning “their ways” (not ours), etc.
* GER to GER is an opportunity for people to learn how to integrate within other cultures vs. other cultures catering to our international norms and standards that we have become overly accustomed too and demand others to adhere too (like paid entertainment slaves).
* GER to GER has generated over a Million USD towards Mongolia’s social economic development via supply-chain synergies and provides over 80% of its revenues toward rural nomadic families that greatly need this alternative income source.
FOURTHLY, I HAVE NO CRIMINAL RECORD OF ANY KIND ANYWHERE ON PLANET EARTH.
“THROUGHOUT MY ENTIRE LIFE –
NO ASSAULTS OF ANY KIND & NO CRIMINAL RECORDS”
NOW ON TO…
TRIP ADVISOR ENGAGES IN RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT?!
Trip Advisor is Willfully Allowing Criminal-Misuse of Their Platform for Public Slander and Abusive Defamation (for 6+ years); EVEN If I haven’t yet Pressed Criminal Charges Against Anyone; the Local Police Desired Me to Press Criminal Charges – but I didn’t.
HERE’S THE DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE OF TRIP ADVISOR’S “WILLFUL NEGLIGENCE” TO ENGAGE IN “RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT & PUBLIC ABUSE” via LACK OF SAFETY PROTOCALS a.k.a. CORPORATE FRAUD & INTENTIONAL ‘ANTI-TRUST’ VORTEXing
(NOT WILLING TO SOLVE ISSUES RAPIDLY – after YEARS of working on this matter – this was received on April 2017 and still till today nothing has been done.)
WHO’S REAL? WHO’S FAKE?
WHO’s A FRAUD?
TRIP ADVISOR DOESN’T KNOW!
ANY FRAUD CAN MAKE A TRIP ADVISOR ACCOUNT for LIBEL
VIA A FAKE GMAIL ACCOUNT
THE SAD REALITY #BADTOURISTS
In all honesty, if these folks would have read the Terms & Conditions, online/offline informations, contracts, training materials, etc., etc., etc.
MANY OF THEIR ISSUES – WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN AN ISSUE –
WITH MOST PRE-BOOKED TRAVELERS – GER to GER HAS 13 LEVELS of VERIFICATIONS to COMMUNICATE & ASSIST TRAVELERS
13 Levels of Verifications TO ASSIST & COMMUNICATE as well as give opportunity to travelers to comprehend and/or change Nomadic Experiences with upgraded tour and expedition packages:
- Online access to “what is GER to GER”, “how does GER to GER operate, etc.”
- Online access to Information about the differences between “Humanitarian Reality Trips” and Packaged Trips, etc.
- Online access to “Terms and Conditions” of Humanitarian Trips
- Correspondences with GER to GER staff by emails; Q&A, etc
- Upon arrival in Mongolia – all travelers receive a mandatory 2 hour training workshop; Professional Humanitarian Liability Trainings are conducted by an International Specialist with over 22+ years of Professional Expertise throughout Mongolia including extreme environs (-50 plus degrees expedition/production works, etc.) and Abroad; Internationally Awarded, Recognized by National Geographic Society, Recipient of Mongolia’s 2nd Highest Medal of Honor – The Ministerial Gold Star of Leadership, etc. These Humanitarian Training Workshops cover: contracts; terms and conditions; liabilities; assumption of risks; humanitarian 101; outback to international social economic supply/value chain analysis and mapping; country info; history and important highlights; customer vs. cultural service; DOs and DON’Ts; cultural and cross-cultural analysis/studies; nomadic lifestyle; “Leave No Trace Travel” – environmental protection; activity health/safety – horseback, trekking, etc.; wildlife awareness – wolves, snakes, insects, etc.; extreme situational “survival 101” in relation to weather, terrains, navigation (sun, terrain, vegetation, geographical terrain vectoring, etc.), physical, mental and medical; risk mitigation/management; emergency COMMs methodology; itinerary confirmation; language; and more.)
- At the workshops all travelers are updated with current weather, culture, etc., information that may influence their trip and are informed rural nomads have the “power” to change the trip when necessary; transparently listed on the Terms and Conditions owing to their lifestyles
- At the workshops all travelers are educated the difference between “cultural service” vs. “customer service” and so much more to ensure that they are fully aware that they are traveling as humanitarians and not as “tourists” on a vacation.
- At the workshops all travelers AGAIN review Humanitarian Trip’s Terms and Conditions
- At the workshops all travelers review GER to GER disclaimer with Instructor
- At the workshops all travelers are provide an opportunity to change their trip/minds
- At the workshops all travelers CAREFULLY REVIEW AND SIGN the “Assumption of Risk Contract” that includes weather, culture, lifestyle, 3rd Party Suppliers, etc., in relation to Humanitarian Trip’s Terms and Conditions; on website, handbook, etc.
- After signing the Assumption of Risk Contract all travelers make final payments
- After contract signing, workshop and payments – all travelers are invited to contact us again for further info clarifications prior/during their Reality Humanitarian Trip (via nomadic families mobile phones).
Metaphorically these are a good representations of the emotional and mental state of most scammers… though they often behave 10x worse in our office.
“It’s really like telling folks (for months) before arriving, and while they are at the restaurant, that they are indeed purchasing water and not to expect a “full course meal”. Nonetheless, they ignore all informations and still order water and get angry about only having water afterwards (then proceed to attempt fraud/defraud/disruption of the peace/etc.) – to which after not being successful and asked to leave the the business property they then go online to slander innocent people and the establishment unlawfully – to force the establishment to loose its markets, go bankrupt and innocent people become unemployed.”- to which all of these CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES are being knowingly allowed on Trip Advisor by Trip Advisor without any fact-finding, due diligence, due process, etc.
These are EXACTLY the Types of Bad Tourists who Write LIBEL on Trip Advisor that Damages our Reputation/SOCIAL ECONOMICS THAT they Allow
Even if we spend weeks and possibly months explaining via emails “OUR MENU” before they arrive, followed by a 2 hour training in our office explaining “OUR MENU” carefully, Q&As, etc., a handful of scammers intentionally try to make VERY public scenes (offline/online) like this woman this so they can accuse us of be ‘racist’ or difficult, etc., via Trip Advisor to damage our reputations owing to “their” ignorance; and or lies/stories that they intentionally make up to spitefully create an inconvenience to the establishment and its workers.
Criminals know when then have been caught – there’s only one tactic left in order to escape a public crime-scene “Make Public Confusion”; Trip Advisor has been that criminal Escape-Venue for many years.
LETS ALL TAKE A ‘POLYGRAPH TEST’ AT A FBI FIELD OFFICE – I KNOW I’LL PASS IT BUT NONE OF THESE PEOPLE WILL
What I am about to share IS NOT slander – these folks have already slandered me for 6+ years on Trip Advisor – I am merely exercising my right to rebuke their fraudulent remarks, etc., in accordance with most domestic and international laws as well as in accordance with UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. After almost a decade of these folks recklessly endangering my life overseas – jeopardizing my personal security, my personal wellbeing, my social economics, etc., as well as jeopardizing my life on numerous occasions via stirring up local nationalists and extremists… let’s get to the bottom of this!
HOOK THEM ALL UP to a Polygraph!
(I ONLY provide situational information online/offline in lines with ‘ethically’ protecting our UN SDGs Initiatives (1 through 17) as well as our UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights Articles 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30; as our overseas humanitarian works were/are/still exceptionally important to 100s of rural nomadic families, etc.)
It is EXCEPTIONALLY important to note the following:
- Scammers DO NOT state they were on a “Low Budget Humanitarian Trip”; they all intentionally misled people to think they where traveling on Packaged Vacations.
- Scammers DO NOT state they state that they only paid $200-$350 USD for an average 7 Day “Humanitarian Trip” (you can’t pay that amount for 1 or 2 days “all inclusive” in Paris, Berlin, UK, etc.) that includes:
- BUYING bus tickets on the travelers’ behalf,
- COORDINATING rural jeeps on the travelers’ behalf,
- nomadic accommodations in a Ger/Yurt,
- three LARGE nomadic meals a day with unlimited drinks,
- a nomadic guide that would travel every day 20+ kilometers with them and 20+ kilometers back home (averaging 40+ kilometers per day),
- horses and camels to ride and with ox carts that carry travelers’ luggages (backpacks, etc.) for safety and comfort,
- traveling across Mongolia’s most pristine and off the path locations,
- never being rushed like standard tours but rather allowed TONS of FREE TIME to stop, explore, walk, trek and even have picnics!
- Scammers DO NOT state they state that GER to GER Office and Rural Nomadic Families INTENSIVELY took care of their well-beings professionally and that they were:
- Provided FREE CONSULTATIONS on Mongolia travel that sometimes took hours; maps, travel routes, plans, budgeting, transportation methods, etc.
- Professionally trained in humanitarian 101; outback to international social economic supply/value chain analysis and mapping; country info; history and important highlights; customer vs. cultural service; DOs and DON’Ts; cultural and cross-cultural analysis/studies; nomadic lifestyle; “Leave No Trace Travel” – environmental protection; activity health/safety – horseback, trekking, etc.; wildlife awareness – wolves, snakes, insects, etc.; extreme situational “survival 101” in relation to weather, terrains, navigation (sun, terrain, vegetation, geographical terrain vectoring, etc.), physical, mental and medical; risk mitigation/management; emergency COMMs methodology; itinerary confirmation; language; and more.).
- Provided FREE luggage storage for weeks in the GER to GER Office.
- SAFE and well looked after; mountains, deserts, etc.
- SAFE and NEVER had an injury due to negligence; horseback riding, camel riding, etc.
- Provided plenty of opportunities to PROACTIVELY participate in the daily life of nomadic families; just jump in and participate, etc.
- Provided plenty of opportunities to use the family as a base camp; to go hiking, trekking and exploring the surrounding areas.
- Provided plenty of food and drinks; generally sometimes it’s more than 3 meals a day.
- Provided plenty of time for rest and relaxation; nomads love it when travelers take it easy.
- Provided plenty of COMMUNICATIONS ACCESS to contact GER to GER; we make sure that if travelers are confused/etc., that they are able to contact GER to GER Office via the nomadic families mobile phones to which we clarify and communicate the situations so that the nomadic families and travelers have clarity if required.
Now let ME address A HANDFUL of the “FAKE, FRAUDS, TROLLS & CRIMINALS” so that YOU can get the point…
THE PARASITICAL BLOGGERS’
LIBELOUS SMEAR CAMPAIGN
Owing to Trip Advisor’s Willful Negligence and Lack of Due Diligence – They Don’t know Who’s Real, Who’s Fake and Who’s a Fraud; However, I know as I have ALL the contracts, documentations, etc. – I’ve tried to share this information but Trip Advisor doesn’t want to read NOR review anything I send…
CONCERNING “TABITHA ROMAN” OF FRESHCOFFEESTAINS.COM – A PARASITICAL BLOGGER A.K.A “JUGGLINGTAM” ON TRIP ADVISOR – LIBEL
(an unknown blogger that seeks attention via attaching their blog to known people and/or organizations to unethically attract attention via Google Search Engine Results that recklessly damages people and businesses via false reporting to stir-up sensationalism… in this case – she received ” VERY favorable financial discounts” (benefits) from a competitor before traveling with GER to GER… she had no interest in learning NOR traveling as a humanitarian – her mission was to conduct a smear campaign)
On behalf of GERtoGER.org… Tabitha Roman HAD A CHOICE to take packaged tour or a humanitarian experience designed to financially support poor nomadic families across Mongolia – she doesn’t state that she choose the “humanitarian experience” – and that she declined to pay for a proper tour package. Ms. Roman proceeded to visit a remote desert location where nomadic families had suffered years of droughts/winter storms and unethically treated it/reported it as if she was on a “tour”; this region is in such difficulty that nomadic families often have to travel many kilometers to get water, etc. Ms. Roman knew this wasn’t a tour but rather an ethnographic humanitarian “RELIEF” experience to assist these nomadic families to generate alternative incomes as well as to help stabilize their desert lifestyles via experiencing their challenges AS AN AMBASSADORSHIP – so they wouldn’t have to migrate via increase market support for desert nomads. Indeed all travelers to this region were properly informed that they would be traveling as “humanitarians” and not as tourists. Tabitha Roman makes no mention of this in her unethical reporting and she abuses very poor/EXCEPTIONALLY CHALLENGED desert nomads for her ‘cheap’ publicity to get herself known as a “Travel Blogger for Hire”. Owing to Ms. Roman’s unethical reporting, those nomadic families were so embarrassed they quit GER to GER (gave up on their much needed alternative incomes from tourism that they greatly needed for their family and children) and moved away without informing anyone… Tabitha Roman is an Abusive Bully that doesn’t CARE about destroying poor nomadic families NOR that she GREATLY damaged www.GERtoGER.org market opportunities (for years) that actively supports the UN’s MDGs/SDGs for over 15+ years towards poverty alleviation and much more – Tabitha Roman should be greatly ashamed – she is definitively NOT welcome back to Mongolia.
As a DIRECT RESULT of Tabitha Roman’s Unethical Reporting on YouTube and Trip Advisor – the locals in the region are very distrustful of International Travelers and nomadic families are afraid of hosting travelers – as they’ve all seen how Ms. Roman has been exceptionally abusive. Local nationalists and extremists (not just in Mongolia) have targeted me for hate-crimes, stalking, etc., as they assume what is being written by Ms. Roman as being true without burden of proof/due process/due diligence.
CONCERNING “SIMON LOK” (DRUNK & VIOLENT) – FREE TRIP EXTORTION SCAM ON TRIP ADVISOR – LIBEL
To make an exceptionally long story VERY short… Simon Lok was noted by our driver as being hostile upon arrival in Mongolia though he showed my staff and I a very pleasant demeanor when he arrived for his 2 hour Responsible Travel Training. Upon arrival at our office, Mr. Lok was informed around 10 times that in Western Mongolia – the itinerary he had chosen was out of season – Kazakhs DO NOT fly their Eagles carelessly in the Summer season… This sort of experience is reserved ONLY for the winter months. We offered Mr. Lok a few options prior to traveling: 1) Get a refund now (as later will be too late) 2) We can organize a different trip 3) He can continue to Western Mongolia but he’ll have to ACCEPT 100% responsibility for the quality of his own trip as we can not make any guarantees… Mr. Lok decided on Option 3… So I spent the next 2 hours training him on how to maximize his experience when out in Western Mongolia. After Mr. Lok’s trip finished, we obtained information from the locals that he had a “fantastic time” though there wasn’t a lot of “eagle-related” experience – as I previous informed him. Nonetheless, Mr. Lok was invited to a Kazakh Wedding & Feast where he had a wonderful time with the locals, he managed to have some “eagle time”, he was taken to multiple geographical locations, etc., and all-in-all it did sound like a great time… HOWEVER, upon Mr. Lok’s arrival in Ulaanbaatar – he stunk of Vodka, his speech was slurred and he was exceptionally aggressive… he entered our office yelling and shouting… “I DIDN’T GET TO EXPERIENCE THE EAGLES!!!!” etc., etc., etc… and he demanded a FULL REFUND. My colleague and I looked at one another and we calmly stated that he should write out his experience and well investigate his claims and get back to him shortly… he became outraged, shouting and then CHARGED my female colleague’s desk like he was going to violently attack her – I immediately stood up in-between Mr. Lok and my female colleague and I started to take video recording via my iPhone in hopes that it would discourage Mr. Lok from any/all violent actions towards my female partner, etc. After a few minutes (when we finally stated that we had no choice but to call the local police to stop his disruption of the peace), he eventually left our office shouting “Me and a bunch of others are going to destroy your business!!! You just watch and see!!!” and then he exited. SHORTLY after, he kept to his promise and he did indeed stirred-up a handful of unethical travelers, trolls, etc., via Trip Advisor to join his VERY public defamation cause to destroy our marketing works and generate intentional social economic deprivation.
As a DIRECT RESULT of Sim Lok’s Unethical Reporting on Facebook, Trip Advisor, etc. – the locals in the region are GREATLY offended and have become very distrustful of International Travelers – as they’ve also seen how Mr. Lok has been both abusive and VERY deceptive (no honor). Local nationalists and extremists (not just in Mongolia) have targeted me for hate-crimes, stalking, etc., as they assume what is being written by Mr. Lok as being true without burden of proof/due process/due diligence.
PROOF THAT I DON’T ASSAULT PEOPLE THAT BREAK THE LAWS;
I JUST TAKE VIDEO, ETC., AND/OR CALL THE LOCAL POLICE – I have SELF CONTROL
Here is the iPhone Video that I took to stop Mr. Lok from Violently Attacking my female partner who was sitting at her desk;
AND YES – I am rightfully agitated, so would you if you had to stop a violent drunk man in your own office… We just wanted him to LEAVE!
We are HUMANITARIANS and WE DO NOT DESERVE TO BE ATTACKED LIKE THIS!
CONCERNING “CALVIN KNIGHT” – SEXUAL HARASSMENT SCAM TO OBTAIN A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT – ON TRIP ADVISOR – LIBEL
What transpired with Mr. Knight is an experience that I shall never forget. Mr. Knight and his wife arrived late for the training and his wife left Mr. Knight with me as she needed to attend to other matters – I didn’t want to be unaccommodating so I permitted. What transpired during that training I will never forget for my entire life, it was exceptionally appalling! Though Mr. Knight is married – throughout the training Mr. Knight made countless ‘uninvited sexual advances’ towards me; without going into all the visual details… I’m not sure if his wife knows this or not – but he definitely seems to be bisexual (and I am not); lets just say that I tried and tried to ignore his advances till the point that I became soooo irritated that I was left with no choice but to lightly inform him that I am trained. This is the first time, ever in my career, that I become so uncomfortable and I felt so incredibly violated – it was just awful as I am 100% heterosexual male. After enduring the MOST painful training that I have ever had to give, his wife came back at the end all ‘strange eyed’ (which made me slightly aware that she might know about her husband) and they both abruptly left and decided to cancel their trip with GER to GER… This whole situation seemed way too rehearsed and bizarre to not be a fake drama to try to unethically obtain a non-refundable deposit with the goal of blaming/smear campaigning me if we adhered to our cancellation policy (as in accordance with our well establish policy – the night before departure there is no refund available as all the bookings have been coordinated – hotels, camps, drivers, guides, etc.). I have nothing against the LGBT community but this was a serious violation of my wellbeing – imagine if a woman was in my place – this would have merited as “sexual harassment”, police would be called and Mr. Knight would have been pressed with Criminal Charges.
As a DIRECT RESULT of Mr. Knight’s Unethical Reporting on Trip Advisor, etc. – it contributed to both locals and internationals thinking that we steal people’s deposits, etc., which is absolutely NOT the truth; in fact, we’ve honored 100s of partial refunds owing to travelers getting sick, unable to continue, bad weather, etc. Local nationalists and extremists (not just in Mongolia) have targeted me for hate-crimes, stalking, etc., as they assume what is being written by Mr. Knight as being true without burden of proof/due process/due diligence.
DETAILED EXAMPLE OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES ON TRIP ADVISOR
“The Spanish Thieves’ Smear Campaign –
Caught by Locals, Us and Local Police”
CONCERNING “MR. LUIS LAGUNA AND MS. MONSTERR ROVERILTA” OF SPAIN A.K.A “TRENTAMILKM” ON TRIP ADVISOR – LIBELFIRST AND FOREMOST – I DON’T ASSAULT PEOPLE WHEN THEY BREAK THE LAWS – I JUST CALL THE POLICE.Owing to these Spanish Couple a lot of people have had to unnecessarily suffer… Generally all was good except they didn’t bring a “tent” as instructed by the itinerary and us – upon arrival at the rural location (Khuvsgul Lake) – locals called us and asked where are these 2 people’s tent? We were shocked that they didn’t organize their tent as they said they would… One local said that they could “rent” their tent to them to which these two Spanish people agreed that they would pay for the tent upon arrival from the Nomadic Experience – they didn’t. Upon arrival, they ran into the bus and the local called me “this Spanish couple said they would pay the rental fee but they are now refusing… can you talk to them?!”. I told the local person to pass the phone – the local said to the Spanish couple “Mr. Fromer from GER to GER” to which I heard the Spanish couple say “no, we don’t talk!” over and over again…. the local asked me what they should do – I responded we’ll talk to them upon arriving in Ulaanbaatar. When they arrived to Ulaanbaatar – they RAN into our office’s restricted area where we keep all travelers (many) backpacks and personal items stored without our authorization and they started to RANSACK that area throwing other travelers backpacks everywhere – we called the police and the police told us not to let the Spanish couple leave until they arrived – as they want to talk to them. As instructed by the local police, we kept them from further damaging our and other people’s properties that we could be blamed for… WITHOUT ASSAULTING anyone. Finally the police arrived and shortly after the Spanish people apologized for their bad behavior and paid the rental fee for the local person that they stole from – and none of us pressed any criminal charges against this Spanish Couple (though the local police recommended that we should press criminal charges to protect ourselves from further damages that the Spanish Couple may try to unethically inflict upon us).So, let me CLEARLY PUBLIC STATE that any online statements made by ANYONE in reference to me “assaulting, harassing, etc.” ANYONE is 100% false (I ONLY provide situational information online/offline in lines with ‘ethically’ protecting our UN SDGs Initiatives as well as our UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights Articles 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30; as our overseas humanitarian works were/are/still exceptionally important to 100s of rural nomadic families, etc.) – I have NEVER been charged with “Assault, Harassment, Disturbing the Peace, etc.” NOR ANY OTHER unlawful criminal actions within Mongolia NOR in the United States of America NOR in any other country; and I have 1000s of character witnesses (spanning decades across tourism, film productions, USAID Initiatives, exceptionally challenging special overseas projects, etc.) around the world that can testify to this as well as legal documentation that CLEARLY states that I have NO CRIMINAL RECORDS.Owing to Trip Advisor’s negligence, they have allowed those slanderous and unlawful libelous statements made by the Spanish who have used my ‘full name’ that is 100% in violation of Trip Advisor Guidelines to remain online for over 6+ YEARS; the Spanish Couple were caught committing MULTIPLE local crimes (thievery, fraud, defraud, disruption of the peace, etc.) and they have intentionally manipulated Trip Advisor for public slander/defamation/fraud/etc., (even more crimes) – and Trip Advisor has/continues to publicly victimized me for 6+ years via allowing such libelous/hate-crimes to exist on their platform without validating NOR fact-finding as they have intentionally rejected to read any information that I’ve sent (corporate fraud, reckless endangerment [daily my personal safety/economics/etc., were at risk for many years; nationalists/extremists/etc.] via negligence/lack of due diligence, etc.).As of today – less than 20 or so travelers that engaged in overseas crimes, I believe from 1000s of successful travelers for 15+ years; however, this figure DOES NOT include the years of online/offline criminal works carried out by slanderous-trolls for hire as Mongolia’s tourism industry does behave/networks/operates like a “Mafia“; lots of tourism industry greed issues and our humanitarian works were becoming rapidly successful – it’s CLEAR that many wanted to intentionally disrupt us at www.GERtoGER.org via Trip Advisor, etc.)As a DIRECT RESULT of MR. LUIS LAGUNA AND MS. MONSTERR ROVERILTA Unethical Reporting on Trip Advisor, etc. – it has made the locals very untrusting of International Travelers as they have firsthand experiences & abuses that shows they cannot be trusted. As for us in the office, we have become very worrisome every year that we may get more of THESE TYPES of unethical travelers – they’ve definitely poisoned our kind-hearted environs.
This perfectly highlights HOW the Spanish Thieves collaborated to make it look like they were Assaulted – but in reality – it’s all a drama… when we called the local police to stop their thievery/disruption – they also tried to run away.
Now Let ME Address the
“GREATLY Exaggerated BUT REAL CLIENTS”
As both my Organization and I have been publicly attacked by name via Trip Advisor’s willful negligence – the following information is ONLY PART of what I provided to assist in comprehension via color coding (in addition to contracts, terms and conditions, two hour training materials explanations, etc) . In truth, only 4 contracted clients (subtracting frauds, trolls, etc.) – from 1000s of successes – made complaints via Trip Advisor; those clients unfortunately made some very bad decisions on their own (just bad luck) of which has been well investigated. As for the rest, they are NOT clients of GER to GER (fake accounts/fraudulent reviews) and/or are known-scammers that were caught conducting acts of fraud/ thievery/ defraud/ disruption of the peace/ slander/ etc., overseas and even after spending countless hours/days/weeks/months (pre trip) explaining everything clearly to them via emails, website, trainings, terms & conditions Q&As, contract Q&As, etc., they later decided to VERY publicly slander us via Trip Advisor – exceptionally deceitful/hateful people; they all knew that they were buying “reality-community based/managed tourism services” and not “fully packaged vacation tours” and they were all properly educated on this matter. NONETHELESS, all their complaints have been written as if they have purchased “fully packaged vacation tours” for $1000s when in actuality – all these people only spent $200 to $300 USD (on average) for an average 7 Day Community Based Reality Cultural Trip with locals (trips about “reality”/Real Lifestyles of Nomadic Families – ZERO Entertainment) that includes 3 hearty meals a day, unlimited teas/drinks, their own nomadic Ger, local nomadic guides, horses/ox carts to ride, tons of trekking/hiking around the nomadic families homes, live-stock experiences, incredible geographies, etc., etc., etc.! Literally, on PLANT EARTH there is almost NO tour operators that offers “7 Day Experiences” FOR ONLY a MEAGER $200 to $300! WE OFFERED THESE FOLKS TO BUY FULLY PACKAGED VACATION TRIPS – BUT THEY DECLINED TO SPEND EXTRA MONEY TO PURCHASE IT (often they couldn’t financially afford it). And yet, Trip Advisor has allowed these VERY SMALL HANDFUL of people to Aggressive Public Slander me and my organization online unlawfully and recklessly endangering my overseas personal safety and our social economics for years; our tourism market, our business opportunities, our film production opportunities, etc., have all been greatly impacted negatively owing to Trip Advisor’s willful negligence/lack of fact finding/allowing such public displays of hateful libel without desiring to become acquainted with all the facts, etc.
Here are a Couple Examples of REAL clients who’ve just made terrible mistakes and/or should have opted for a Tour Packaged instead of a “REALITY” Experience with Nomadic Families – as it’s 100% Clear they write libelously as if they were supposed to be on a Tour – which isn’t the case.
CONCERNING “Robyn Walker 2003” – LIBEL
On behalf of GERtoGER.org – we are deeply sadden to hear about Robyn’s experience… after her trip she didn’t approach us but rather went to Trip Advisor to post some very hurtful remarks. After investigation into her matter, we obtain the whole “context” of her troubles… After her successful trip with GER to GER Robyn missed her bus back to Ulaanbaatar and instead of contacting me or anyone at our organization, as we would have assisted her immediately, she decided to organize her own transportation back to Ulaanbaatar on her own initiative – that was her disaster – as she was traveling irresponsibly and had chosen the wrong people to travel with to Ulaanbaatar. Nevertheless, GER to GER’s responsibilities ended when her trip ended – the travel back to Ulaanbaatar is ‘really’ her responsibility as we are not liable for the Mongolian State Bus Authority (a public bus system) nor are we responsible for their bus schedules. It’s like finishing a tour in UK and afterwards I miss the bus or train home… who’s responsibility is it? Mine or the tour operator? Exactly, it’s not the tour operator’s responsibility (as CLEARLY written and explained on our website, terms & conditions, handbook, contracts, office trainings, etc.) – however – we would have assisted her if she would have contacted us via the Emergency Number that we provide on the GER to GER’s Travel Pass as we instruct and have assisted countless other travelers who made mistakes, needed assistance, etc.
As a DIRECT RESULT of Ms. Walker’s Unethical Reporting on Trip Advisor, etc. – she has damaged our reputation as well as our market opportunities for Nomadic Families.
CONCERNING MS. BEANIUS (NEW ZEALAND) – LIBEL
Inaccurate Information Dissemination: We once had a couple (Ms. Beanius of New Zealand) that were traveling to remote location with a Mongolian guide who ended up catching some diarrhea. GER to GER upon lengthy consultations with this guide decided that the guide was taking the correct methodology to flush his system – the guide said he’ll be better within the next day or two and he really didn’t desire to quit the trip nor the clients… GER to GER offered this guide to replaced (we would burden the cost of sending someone out) but he declined stating that if he truly got worse that he would opt to be replaced – so we all agreed to watch him for a day to which he did get better. Nonetheless, the intentional dissemination of “inaccurate information” is considered to be a scam as Mr. BEANIUS decided to go onto Trip Advisor and promote incomplete and inaccurate information… in the outback it’s our policy to look out for each other (same if the client gets ill – the guide carefully looks after the well-being the of clients/NOT ABANDONED THEM)…
As a DIRECT RESULT of Ms. BEANIUS’s Unethical Reporting on Trip Advisor, etc. – this guide was so embarrassed that he quit his job and has not worked with GER to GER since. Also, it’s important to note that this also creates an issues with local human resources for GER to GER as many potentially ‘excellent’ guides are worrisome that they will also be publicly abused online as the locals all know who leads which trips; it doesn’t matter what Ms. BEANIUS’s intentions are – the result is that locals loose the opportunities towards human development, economics, and are afraid of foreigners… Mongolia is a developing country – it needs a couple more decades at least – foreigners traveling to Mongolia should be more supportive than exceptionally abusive.
JUST HOW POWERFUL/DAMAGING IS TRIP ADVISOR’S GOOGLE SEO & PLATFORM MANIPULATIONS TO INNOCENT VICTIMS?!
HERE’S THE REALITY –
100% SUPPORTED BY EVIDENCE, FACTS, DOCUMENTATION, ETC.
TRIP ADVISOR’s NEGLIGENCE IS LIKE AN “UNREGULATED GUN DEALER” THAT GIVES OUT NON-TRACEABLE FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS TO BULLY-KIDS AND LETTING THEM LOOSE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
OWING Trip Advisor’s Google Search Engine Super Authoritative SEO Status it ranks Superior – metaphorically – Trip Advisor’s Platform is like a Gun Dealer that freely gives its VERY POWERFUL fully loaded automatic weapons to very angry bully-kids and letting them loose in public schools… We all know there will be countless casualties – likewise as the results of any/all fraudulent posts will Automatically Reach 1st/2nd Page on Google Search Engines VIA the names of people/organizations written within. Hence, Trip Advisor must be held responsible and ACCOUNTABLE for its willful negligence to intentionally/knowingly allow this incredible level of reckless endangerment… Trip Advisor was/has been/is informed about this countless times for many years YET they have not ethically corrected these issues – still till today – they allow them.
Trip Advisor FEARS to Acknowledge their Negligence as it does makes them 100% legally liable for any/all past damages to people and businesses “AROUND THE WORLD”; as their own internal systems/ guidelines are easily exploited and manipulated which hasn’t been fixed for years!
TRIP ADVISOR DOES NOT PROPERLY FIX THEIR FAULTY SAFETY SYSTEMS; LEAVES IT INTENTIONALLY OPEN FOR EASY MANIPULATIONS THAT ENDANGERS GOOD PEOPLE & BUSINESSES
MUCH LIKE A CAR MANUFACTURE THAT HAS FAULTY SAFETY SYSTEMS – MOST RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURES WILL RECALL… BUT NOT TRIP ADVISOR – THEY INTENTIONALLY DO NOT RECALL – THEY’LL ALLOW THE FAULTY SYSTEM TO EXIST FOR YEARS AND YEARS THUS INTENTIONALLY KILLING AND/OR SEVERELY DAMAGING COUNTLESS BUSINESSES AND GOOD PEOPLE’S REPUTATIONS
The fact is that ANYONE can make a “Fake” Gmail account and register with Trip Advisor and write anything, about anyone, anytime they desire and Trip Advisor doesn’t know “WHO IS WHO”… This incredible level of negligence has been exploited as early as 2012/2013 (potentially much earlier) as we examine both my own and our organization’s victimizations by Trip Advisor – internal research works; which 100% proves that Trip Advisor willfully VIOLATES its own Guidelines, etc.! Trip Advisor has been made aware of this (for many years) and they still HAVE NOT taken any steps to eliminate the easiness of their platform exploitation/manipulation for criminal activities.
Verifiable Parties are the First Two: 1st Party “Trip Advisor”, 2nd Party “The Company and/or Victim” and
3rd is often “The Unknown User Accounts” (those that post libelous statements).
FOR YEARS Trip Advisor’s Platform has been Plagued with Criminal LIBEL Activities OWING to Intentional Negligence; AND TRIP ADVISOR KNOWS THAT THEY DON’T KNOW!
The main reason why Trip Advisor doesn’t want to acknowledge this – their entire business is existing on the premise of “TRUSTING PUBLIC REVIEWS” by 3rd parties that are unverified/ undocumented/ etc., and if those reviews are FAKE, FRAUDULENT, ETC., and Trip Advisor can be EASILY exploited and manipulated FOR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES – THEY ARE ULTIMATELY LIABLE FOR LACK OF SAFETY FEATURES – THEY ARE DANGEROUS TO THE INDUSTRY AND THEY KNOW IT!
UNLAWFUL SLANDER AND PUBLIC DEFAMATION (LIBEL) WITH THE INTENT OF “RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT” OF INNOCENT VICTIMS AND THEIR SOCIAL ECONOMICS VIA TRIP ADVISOR’S NEGLIGENCE AND OUTSTANDING PLATFORM EXPLOITATIONS/MANIPULATIONS FOR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES THAT HAVEN’T BEEN CORRECTED FOR YEARS – EVEN AFTER BEING INFORMED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS.
SEEKING PLAINTIFF LAWYER – LIBEL
Owing to a handful of unethical folks, for the next couple of years or so (however long it takes) I will indeed be doing some serious legal-house cleaning. It’s long overdue to hire a lawyer and actively go after a short list of fraudulent-folks that have publicly defamed and terrorized good people for way too long; it is time to bring about some justice to situations that have been unethically exploited (as I was overseas) by a handful of individuals backed by an unethical internet company – that doesn’t validate nor fact-find yet proceeds to allow unlawful public defamation/libel that recklessly endangers overseas folks and their businesses as well as their social economic opportunities for years. Today, as time has clearly shown how these types of folks do manipulate and unethically exploit many online platforms for ‘illegal hate-crimes and fraud’, this subject matter was ‘too new’ for many people years ago to do anything as they lack comprehension – however – as it is now globally understood, it is time for Justice. In addition to my own research, “Tourism Watch” conducted an independent investigation into this matter and have indeed verified that Trip Advisor can be easily manipulated https://www.tourism-watch.de/en/focus/how-was-your-stay/Currently my fear is that if I continue to work at GER to GER in Mongolia (www.GERtoGER.org) – someone will cleverly find a way to blame me for something that I didn’t do to disrupt our successes/my credibility (which is very common); and possibly get me locked up abroad or worse – killed (it’s not the first time as it has happened numerous times for the past decade)… and that would definitely break my heart more than it’s broken now; I’m sad to see that our USA-Mongolia business relations have been destroyed like this. Nonetheless, I can not continue to feel like the bad guy for all the wonderful works and sacrifices that I made for decades to help Mongolia and 1000s of its people – that’s not how I want my history to end… hence, I am making this Public Area to disclose this information so that the “truth” may be shared.
