Julian Siddle, in charge of policy and communications at new Legal Beagles venture LB Compare decided to post up on LinkedIN about the seizure of Carl Wright’s personal assets by the liquidators of his company Cartel Client Review Ltd. The LinkedIN article had a link pointing to the Legal Beagles article on this same subject, where an advert for their new business venture LB Compare appears boldly on the right sidebar. Although Julian Siddle’s post appeared to be made with the intention of crediting Martyn Osment and ITUS, it was also a clever way to promote Legal Beagles and LB Compare.
We have already discussed that no credit has been given to those who made Legal Beagles what it is today, including the people who were instrumental in fighting the claims management companies here: No credit where credit is due. As if that wasn’t enough, the comments posted by a couple of members on Julian’s LinkedIN page were swiftly deleted. Deleted from the LinkedIN post but they can be seen right here on this page.
For those who don’t know what we’re talking about, Cartel Client Review was one of the best known claims management companies that made a lot of money from people who paid up-front fees to have their debts allegedly written off. Mr Wright was banned by regulators in 2010 but carried on trading under various companies. Legal Beagles were actively involved in fighting against such companies on behalf of the consumer. Ironically these are the very same companies that are now being promoted by LB Compare to handle PPI reclaims which individuals can easily do themselves.
Mr Siddle has been busy blowing his own trumpet lately, little did he know some people out there would have the courage to post up on there, using their own names so there can be no mistake as to who they were. I’m sure he wasn’t expecting that, certainly not two years after The Mass Cull. Just when he thought it was safe to go outside without wearing a bullet-proof vest, he gets shot at. That should teach them that you can remove people from a forum but not from the online world.
In the real world, it is possible to leave a job, move house, leave town, emigrate. It’s not always easy, in fact, it can be very hard, but it is possible. Not so in the online world. You could move to New Zealand and it wouldn’t make any difference. There’s only one LinkedIN, one Facebook, one internet wherever you are. You can’t decide to move to another internet to avoid the truth. Think about that, Mr Siddle and the rest of the Beagles.
You can delete the comments from LinkedIN or wherever they are posted but not from our own archives or this site. Everything that’s posted online is stored somewhere and can re-appear at any time, anywhere.
