Word on the Helensville grapevine is that Grant ‘Ponyboy” King has been working on a few cars at 103 Mill Rd, Helensville.
Goodness, the last time “Ponyboy” was let anywhere near cars, it didn’t go that well.
In 1982, King was jailed for 6 months on 4 charges of receiving stolen vehicles. King was a self-employed panel-beater and car painter in Otahuhu, and received a number of stolen vehicles though his workshop, grinding the engine and chassis numbers from the vehicles, and then repainting them.
Wouldn’t be yet ANOTHER illegal business in the making, would it?
The following document (below) is the original 1994 transcript of “Quinby Enterprises Ltd (In Liquidation) (a Grant King-created illegal investment company), vs. The General Accident Fire & Life Assurance Corporation Public Limited Company”.
The story this document reveals will in part be familiar to many of Kings 72 fraud victims.
King comes up with a grand scam, takes money off people who trust him, and then tries to get away with keeping the money via manufacturing a “dispute” between the parties.
What isn’t so well-known is that at the time of this case being investigated, King was found to have secured around $750,000 in investment and debt using other peoples money, none of which he invested (except into his own bank account), and that the NZ Justice Department had King dead-to-rights in breach of numerous statutory authorities.
These breaches by Grant King were so significant, that even the Judge who was hearing the “Quinby” case (eventually heard in the Auckland High Court in 1994) expressed his incredulity that, rather than the NZ Justice Department prosecuting King to the very extent of the law regarding the investment fraud, they instead offered King a deal that if he paid back the money and stopped advertising for investors in his scam arrangements, the NZ Justice system would let him off prosecution.
Naturally, King took the deal, but then refused to pay back the money, and was subsequently adjudicated bankrupt in 1991 (Kings first bankruptcy).
This story also reveals an additional $500,000 in fraud committed by Grant Norman King that I was not aware of.
Which now makes Grant King the $4 million-dollar man in terms of the amount of (known) fraud King has perpetuated upon other people during his 33-year criminal career.
Just think: if the NZ Justice system had nailed King in a criminal case in 1991, imagine how many fraud victims of Grant King might have been spared the loss, anguish and trauma they subsequently experienced as a result of Kings multiple illegal fraudulent actions against them?
I have often wondered why Grant King seemed to present so confidently in Court environments, even when the evidence against him has historically been so utterly and completely over-whelming.
After reading this Judgment, I now think I know why: relatively early in his longitudinal criminal career, King won a massive “staring competition” with the NZ Justice system, and I suspect that when that happened, King (understandably, I guess) truly felt that he was untouchable.
The full Judgment is below:
And if anyone thinks that the cause of the fire mentioned in the Judgment was a faulty plug board – then I have a bridge to sell you 🙂
A readers comment probably sums this story up nicely:
“There’s nothing like the disinfecting power of a little sunlight exposing the activities of people such as this. Justice Barker was not impressed with the quality of his (Kings) evidence and it seems not much has changed since”.
I have just received this email from an organisation calling itself China Registry Headquarters:
(Please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. Thanks)
We are a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in Shanghai, China. On Nov 5, 2015, we received an application from Huabo Holdings Ltd requested “grantnormanking” as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names. But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it’s necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?

It won’t work: if “Huabo Holdings” try to make a claim on this domain name, they will face a WIPO application.
Probably something Pang Tong Investments and Director Wei Li could do without, what with everything else going on for them at the moment.
Sunlight is coming, Mr Li, sunlight is coming.
I guess they haven’t heard about the book, either then……………………..what a cast of characters THAT’S going to reveal once it’s released!
