Grant King (finally) removed from Helensville Community Facebook page for fraudulent activity.

Thank you to those Helensville locals who took the time to actually check out the information I sent them, and thank you to the Moderators who have now worked to protect the 733 other members of the Helensville Community Facebook page from being scammed by Grant King.

Keep a close eye on your kids as well around this creep:

Viewer stats for this website over the last 12 hours are off the charts – spread the word Helensville people, and protect your community from any more “Grant King victims”.

Be wary of King re-joining the group under another name or non-de-plume: he is notorious for hiding behind anonymous identities, or posting anonymous and false information online.

Unlike King, I have no reason to be afraid of my own name in the public arena.

Is Grant King, a convicted child sex offender, pretending to be an official collector of goods for a private trust in Parakai?

Contact me on (021) 259-2506 or email [email protected] if you have any information on this possibility?

Update: Apparently so – see the following flyer, which Grant King recently distributed to a local Helensville Community Facebook page:

Leaf Trust Flyer

Here is the Facebook post, made by Grant King on November 24th, 3.27pm at http://www.facebook.com/?sk=welcome#!/groups/helensville/?fref=ts

Looking for donations of items for the Life Earth Art Fellowship Trust for their care facility just outside Parakai. The Trust has established vege gardens and care for unfortunate individuals who are suffering through no fault of their own. Any donations of items listed on the flyer will be gratefully accepted, we can collect from you or arrange for a drop off to one of the many helpers or to the Center Facility by arrangement. PM me with any help please.

Next stop – Helensville Police Station.

Update: And true to form, Grant King tries to divert attention away from himself, and away from the issue at hand.

If the person nominated in the following post is running the Leaf Trust, why was his name and phone number NOT on the original flyer sent out to the Helensville Community Facebook page? Because Grant King twinked out the Managers contact details and replaced these with his own private message request.

Kreesha Munro i just had an email from grant (i have recently bought a chook house off him) and he has asked me to post some info.  please dont remove me from this page, i will only be doing this once and will not be dealing with him.
  • Kreesha Munro this is from grant….. not me, kreesha……….. seems I have just been removed from the Helensville group because of the lies published by Steve Taylor again. can you let everyone know that the LEAF trust is run by Peter Grace, his mobile is 0275 725884 and his email is [email protected] and also that the collection of items and donations is in fact controlled and approved and supervised by the Corrections Department Western Office in Henderson who supply labour to the trust every week on an ongoing basis.
    Except, I wasn’t lying, was I Grant?
    The Sensible Sentencing Trust sex offender link isn’t a lie; the MED fraud convictions isn’t a lie; and the NZ Herald here and here isn’t a lie; I have evidence, King has…………?????

And the next crop of potential Helensville fraud victims who have responded to Grant Kings “LEAF Trust” post are revealed.

Who are the LEAF Trust, and why has Grant King been entrusted to collect goods for the Trust for fundraising purposes?

The LEAF Trust Facebook is here:

and the LEAF Trust blog site here:

http://leaftrust.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/leaf-trust-auckland-life-earth-art-fellowship/

No particular person is mentioned on the site, there are no contact details, no mailing or street address is listed, but the Leaf Trust is registered as a private Trust with the IRD.

I am informed that Grant King is in the process of calling for goods from the local Helensville community for the purposes of selling to raise funds for the LEAF Trust:

The last time King was involved in a Trust (The West Auckland Arts Council), he stole the Trusts computers, when the Trust discovered King was running a “Kiwi Sex” porn site using Trust computers.

What is (again) revealing about this latest episode, is that the Helensville Community Facebook page is giving King open access to perpetuate yet ANOTHER fraud upon Helensville locals.

It turns out that Grant King has set up a false charity helper “front”, and that the only place that the money raised for sold donated goods will be going is into Grant Kings back pocket. The Leaf Trust have not given Grant King permission to collect on their behalf, and this story is rapidly developing.

Caveat Emptor, Helensville locals – caveat emptor.
