Grant King Public Examination (Auckland High Court) provisional update.

What a day.

It turns out the Crown Prosecutor only needed one of the scheduled two days to conduct the Public Examination into Grant King.

The Judge’s decision on Grant Kings bankruptcy status is reserved, and I have undertaken obligations with key stakeholders in this case not to post anything on the content of what transpired today, or what was revealed  by the respective parties to the Public Examination process, until the Judge has made a decision.

There is also new information that has come to light regarding Grant King during the Public Examination procedure, that I have again agreed not to post until a later date.

What I can tell you is that I wrote 15 x A 4 pages of notes, and that what I heard today will blow your mind.

More later.

Press Release 12/4/14:

(Published): http://auckland.scoop.co.nz/2014/04/fraud-victims-group-hopeful-of-consumers-being-protected/

Press Release: Fraud Victims Group hopeful of Consumers being protected from multiple fraudster in bankruptcy opposition case.

A Fraud victims advocacy group is hopeful that New Zealand Consumers will continue to be protected from a three-times bankrupt, multiple fraudster and convicted sex offender with a 32 year criminal history to his name.

Grant Norman King is facing a public examination in the Auckland High Court as a result of the Office of the Official Assignee opposing Mr Kings third release from bankruptcy:

Mr King was due to be automatically discharged from bankruptcy in October 2013, however this action was opposed by the Office of the Official Assignee, owing to the longitudinal and on-going risk Mr King posed to the Consumer public.

Steve Taylor, Convenor of Consumer Advocacy website www.grantnormanking.com was a fraud victim of Mr King in 2011, when he paid Mr King $23,500.00 to build a Sleepout for Mr Taylors elderly father, who was recovering at the time from a triple bypass operation.

“Grant King took our money, and then failed to build the Sleepout. When I went public on our story, a further 70 victims of Grant King came forward nationwide, and Kings 32 year criminal history was dramatically revealed in the process – by our estimates of victim reports, Grant King has defrauded victims of nearly $3 million dollars over 32 years” said Mr Taylor.

“Our Consumer group has assisted the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment, and the Ministry of Social Development secure a total of 8 convictions against Grant King since 2011, and we are regularly providing Consumer advisory warnings to businesses and individuals about Grant King, in order to minimise the possibility of Grant King creating any more fraud victims”

Mr Taylor says that, since the www.grantnormanking.com Consumer protection website was launched in 2011, the site has attracted nearly 250,000 visitors.

“Before I set up the website, Grant King was invisible – he is not invisible any longer, and our Consumer Protection group fully support the decision by the Office of the Official Assignee to oppose Grant Kings release from bankruptcy, which will be a solid and meaningful step towards protecting Consumers” said Mr Taylor.
