Pearl Going

Yordan Militch is an attention whore

Who is Yordan Militch?

He bought medals off Trade Me, pinned them to his chest – and made up elaborate tales about life as an SAS soldier.

Yordan Militch captivated crowds with stories of picking off the enemy as a sniper, and saving his mates from dangerous situations.

But his tall tales came to police attention after he spoke at an educational course in Hastings last year.

He admitted yesterday that he just got carried away.

“I thought I was something I wasn’t, and that was it.”

Militch wore six medals when he spoke at the Landmark Forum and described himself as one of the most decorated soldiers in New Zealand, the police summary presented to the Napier District Court said.

He described serving in Afghanistan and East Timor, and being deployed as a sniper.

He claimed he was awarded two medals for saving his mates, and the others recognised his peacekeeping efforts.

It is an interesting personality trait when people blatantly lie about themselves in a way that’s easy to verify. ¬†We’ve seen the extended story of Pearl Going on Whaleoil over the years, and now Yordan joins the ranks.

It is clearly a mental condition that seeks attention and reward for things that you never actually achieved in real life. ¬† Read more »

Feeding trolls can be fun, but which ones do you feed?

It is fair to say that there are a great many people out there who do not like me, or some of my friends. That’s ok…we don’t like you either.

At sometime in recent history there has entered a strange idea that just because we can all communicate online via Twitter and Facebook then we should all be friends..or at the very least nice to each other. It’s a bloody strange and alien idea to me.

Basically I go through life with indifference to most people, until they either annoy me or affect me negatively in some way. What happens next is that I escalate my response to a point at which they can not bear. Smart people then usually leave me alone…and I can continue on with my indifference.¬† Read more »

Pearl Going is a Faker, Ctd

ŠĒ• Timaru Herald

Regular readers will know that I have been calling out Pearl Going as a faker for quite some time. The little faker once tried to sue me, but as with everything she does she failed at that too. She managed to con Pork Chop as well.

Recently she has been conning local news outlets to publish her fake attempt at being the first NZ woman to ascend the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. She has even managed to con some sponsors.

They can all save their money now as she wasn’t the first. That title goes to¬†Timaru mountaineer Christine Burke (our Face of the Day)

Timaru mountaineer Christine Burke has become the first New Zealand woman to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Ms Burke completed her seventh summit on Europe’s highest peak, Mt Elbrus on Wednesday.

Her feat comes almost 22 years after the late Rob Hall became the first New Zealand man to complete the climbs in a record time of just under seven months with his climbing companion, the late Gary Ball.

Based on seven summits records, she is the third fastest woman in the world to complete the feat out of 30 on the list.

Pearl’s sponsors can save their cash and she can stop spruiking her¬†unbelievable¬†bullshit to local papers. I wonder when Wikipedia is going to pull her sponsor-fest self written page?

Pearl Going is a Faker,Ctd

The never ending fake saga of Pearl Going just keeps on giving.

She now has a Wikipedia page which is really an infomercial about herself. It is clearly written by her or someone associated with her, such is her shamelessness.

She conveniently re-writes history and ignores all the other facts about her life of fantasy:

Fact of Crap – Pearl Going¬†– What ever did happen to the “Clean Jeans” and the “Pleather Hand Bags”?

Then there was the magical Waiheke Island Mystery Tour as originally blogged by Issac Likes.

Her attempted con on Kaimata Lodge

I note she¬†originates¬†from Whangarei….so does another¬†fantasist, I just bet they are pals.

Pearl Going aka Sián-Pearl Going is an elaborate fraud. It says on her Wiki page:

During her early to mid twenties Going stepped away from public life.

Yeah that coincided with me telling the truth about her bullshit.

She may well be climbing those mountains and if she is then all power to her, hopefully she has mended her lying ways, but from the look of her Wiki page it would appear not.

Whaleoil Redux 2011 – Q1

Today is the last day of the year and what a year it has been. The chaos and mayhem I created was:

January 2011 – 151 posts

The new year started with yet another case of celebrity name suppression. Martin Devlin had thrown a tanty and decided to bounce on the bonnet of his missus’ car. With the ensuing media frenzy he eventually outed himself.

I called time on the Royal NZ Ballet:

From the latest available published accounts for the Royal NZ Ballet.

For the 2009 year.

Ministry for Culture and¬†Heritage funding ‚Äď $3,959,000
Sponsorship and donations ‚Äď $2,010,000
Box office revenue ‚Äď $2,631,000
Total Revenue  Р$8,600,000

On these figures the Royal NZ Ballet bludges $1.50 for every dollar they raise in ticket sales. That’s right, you and I pay $1.50 for every $1.00 some liberal elite wanker pays to sit and watch ballet.

I interviewed Judith Collins for my Summer Series interviews. I am yet to decide if I will do another Summer series.

I outed the Albany Superette for selling P-Pipes. It subsequently was followed in the MSM days later. I next day I got my first legal threat of the year.

On January 9 I highlighted Sunday Star Times and their dodgy polling company Horizon. They never learned from that post and went on to become completely discredited with their methodology and results. It still didn’t stop Radio Live from featuring them, though I understand that Horizon actually paid Mediaworks to do it.

I drove halfway down the Napier-Taupo highway to meet Garth McVicar for my Summer Series interviews. Followed up a few days later with an interview with Trevor Mallard. I doubt he will do another. While in Wellington I also popped in for coffee with Celia Wade-Brown and talked about her victory in the local body elections.

I started asking questions about Len Brown’s 100 things in 100 days. Len Brown starts to desperately look for things to do in his 100 days. On day 79 Len Brown released 52 things he was going to do.

On January 20 I reminded Len Brown about his promise for a referendum on Maori seats. This was before the Maori Statutory Board blew up in his face:

He made this promise throughout the campaign, but has chickened out of a referendum. On Q&A he was trying to buy himself some wriggle room.

On TVNZ‚Äôs Q & A yesterday, Mr Brown said a referendum on creating Maori seats on the council ‚Äúmay well‚ÄĚ be possible in the next three years

This blog has reminded him of his promise here, here and here.

Brian Rudman felt obliged to attack Len Brown and his failure of the 100 things in 100 days promise.

I had a beer with Chris Trotter for my Summer Series interviews. I also went to the Unite Union bunker and interviewed Matt McCarten.

I asked whether or not Labour was snooping on your emails. This story develops in later months.

I started my battle with the Teachers unions.

The good people at Kaimata Retreat get suspicious of a lying blonde tart and google Pearl Going. They subsequently contact me and I out her re-emergence as a bullshit artist.

After Phil Goff handed in his man card by dying his hair I started a series of hair do suggestions for him.

 February 2011 Р187 posts

Chris Hipkins kicked off the first SMOG of Labour with porn spam on Facebook profile.

On February 2 John Key said no to Winston Peters and set the election date.

Len Brown finally released his full list of 100 useless things he was going to do inside 100 days.

On the 6th of February Len Brown fell for the classic Michael Bloomberg train sting. Jonathan Marshall and a photographer bust Len Brown and his hypocrisy over riding the rails to work.

The pressure built on Len Brown over his little train ride double standard.

I told Nikki Kaye that she could have a gay Mardis Gras but only if the government or council didn’t pay for it.

Michael Wood announced on 11 February that he wanted to ensure that there were no penis lollies in Botany despite the fact that there were no penis lollies in Botany.

Trevor Mallard uses Red Alert to attack Jami-lee Ross as a “Tory lump of lard” and accuses him of being a “nasty piece of work”.

On February 15 I said that Carmel Sepuloni wouldn’t win in Waitakere.

On 16 February I highlighted for the first time the skulduggery that was going on in Rodney electorate for the National party selection.

It was in February that we had a rash of MSM writing articles completely unrelated to Hanover and Mark Hotchin but tied them in in either headlines or the body of the article.

The Rodney Selection skulduggery continued. At this stage it only involved a local and the electorate chair, it was however to go much deeper than this. I then outed the involvement of a former South African white supremacist in the manipulations in the Rodney selections. It took several posts to tell the story.

Having dealt with the local skulduggery in Rodney it then became apparent that that there was two separate cases of skulduggery going down. The rather inept local incident with Brent Robinson and then the involvement of the regional hierarchy in attempting to stack appointed delegates. The Rodney selection was then postponed. It was to get much worse.

Serious muckraking was then deployed against Mark Mitchell. It was run by a sitting board member and involved a journalist as well. Things were getting very murky in Rodney electorate.

March 2011 – 187 posts

The Rodney selection was delayed so an audit of membership could be completed. On 4 March the selection process was cancelled and a new selection processed launched such was the level of skulduggery. A serious miscarriage of justice in selection was averted. The irony is the board member most deeply involved int eh murk now claims credit for halting the selection. This is hugely ironic because it was him that was visiting delegates with printouts of websites, a tactic that was later employed in Coromandel by the same board member on behalf of the same candidate.

The day after Jami-lee Ross won the Botany by-election Phil Goff claimed victory for the Labour party.

Speaking of the Labour party, I helpfully make some suggestions for their coming campaign. They ignored them. We know where that ended up.

Trevor Mallard hits a snag using email.

I leaked an email from Perry Rush of the NZPF outlining how they were going to run a campaign against Anne Tolley.

The very first Txts from New York.

I reviewed my Savage 17HMR from Hamills.

Pearl Going is a fake, Ctd

It looks like she is conning more people, this time in funding her alleged mountaineering efforts.

  • She says she has breast cancer

  • Says she lives off a Trust¬†Fund
  • Says she dated Peter Hujlich but threw a glass of wine on him when he called Peter Stew¬≠art a pae¬≠dophile. (He denies even know¬≠ing Peter Stew¬≠art, he also denies ever hav¬≠ing a rela¬≠tion¬≠ship with the mad¬†bitch)
  • Has a hand¬≠bag label using pleather ‚ÄĒ which is sup¬≠pos¬≠edly eco-friendly leather but which is actu¬≠ally plastic

  • Has been offered a job by Kate Sylvester after know¬≠ing her ten minutes
  • Been on a¬†yacht¬†with Richard Bran¬≠son, who is her ‚Äúfriend‚ÄĚ watch¬≠ing the moon¬†rise

From the Northern Advocate article we have yet another thing to add to the list of amazing things she has done:

One of her reasons for taking on the challenge was to prove herself after a brain injury she suffered in a car crash in Dubai in 2006.

The injury took much of her memory and put a stop to her studies. When she returned to Whangarei after the accident she could no longer find her way around or remember people she grew up with.

Maybe that explains the remarkable memory recovery she constantly spouts as above. But it is highly unlikely that the head injury even exists. I have seen fabricated medical evidence of this and if she keeps on saying it I will publish it all. But you can tell this is all a fabrication when you read banal tosh like this:

It was also the realisation of a childhood dream. Reconstructing her memories with the help of family members, she learned she had nagged her father to take her to a real mountain, Ruapehu, when she was 4 years old. At the age of 7 she wrote in a diary that her goal was to “climb to the top of the world”.

“To discover a dream again, when you’re old enough to do something about it, is a gift,” Ms Going said.

Wow, another thing we can add to the list. Wrote in diary at age 7!

Basically Pearl Going is a lying little minx. It looks like she has conned the Northern Advocate and Sony, Adidas, Scarpa, Marmot, Discovery Channel (yes she has their logo in her promotion photos) with her latest escapade. If I were them I’d be very concerned about being associated with a fraud and a cheat like Pearl Going.

Finally the only evidence she has allegedly climbed this mountain is a photo of someone with goggle and a hood on at the top of a mountain.

Pearl Going is a Fake

Is this really Pearl Going?

Mountain climbers I know tell me that when you “summit” you always throw back the hood and show your face so there is evidence that you did do it. Not so for Pearl Going. Her guide however shows his face in an unpublished photo. There are a few more from her Facebook page, but not an awful lot from an expediction of this size.

UPDATE: Pearl has a blog site

Where in the world is Pearl Going? – She's Back

Pearl Going is a con-woman. She travels around spinning incredible yarns about how important, connected and famous she is. The simple fact is she is just a dirty little cheat.

The last escapade I blogged about was when she tried to con Kaimata Lodge in the South Island. She was run out of town and despite much bluster and useless threats she disappeared.

Well, she is back. In Auckland. And Naked.

She finally surfaced sans clothes and at Mollies. I just bet she spun them a line too.

The bad news continues for Pearl Going

Since outing her latest escape the news has spread far and wide about this little fraudster.

Since attempting to scam Kaimata Retreat, she has now featured in two industry websites warning people of her bogus make believe life. The first is from the blog of well known Travel and Ski writer Rache Oaks-Ashe, Pitchit2Me Blog.

Tourism operators beware, just because someone has a blog and a digital camera doesn’t mean they’re a journo as one New Zealand tourism operator found out last week.

A Kiwi tourism operator experienced a near right royal shafting from a pseudo journo last week on the Otago Peninsula near Dunedin on the South Island.

Then today she has had her blog post re-published on the Hotel and Accommodation Management website rumbling Pearl Going there as well.

A luxury New Zealand lodge operator on the Otago Peninsula near Dunedin was at the centre of a major scam from a pseudo journalist last week, raising alarms for hotels across the country.

Even better though, Rachel Oaks-Ashe is friends with James Wilkinson whose name Pearl dropped to get in at Kaimata.

What was even worse is that Sian Pearl¬†apparently used a respected Australian travel journalist‚Äôs name and claimed to be Facebook friends with him when talking to Rachel.¬† He is a friend of mine on Facebook and I checked, he has no Sian Pearl Going as a ‚Äėfriend‚Äô. Rachel has since alerted him to the¬†misuse of his name.

Nice. The reach of HM is vast and should have nicely spiked Pearl’s alleged career in travel writing.

HM, now in its 13th year, is the leading accommodation trade magazine in the region and is distributed to most accommodation properties in Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Noumea, Vanuatu and Tahiti.

The magazine has a circulation of over 6,000 and is received by all tiers of hotel management (from front office staff to general managers, regional directors and CEOs) throughout the three countries. HM also has alliances with the HMAA (Hotel Motel Accommodation Association) in Australia, the New Zealand Hotel Council (NZHC) and the FHA (Fiji Hotels Association).

Pearl Going really needs to understand NFWAB. If she thinks 2009 was a year of cyber hell, then she hasn’t learned a single thing from that year. I’m still waiting for the coppers to visit me over her alleged complaint back then, proving once again she is full of shit.

The Secret Blackberry of Pearl Going age 23 3/4…

On Facebook there is a discussion between Pearl Going’s¬†Blackberry¬†and Pearl….very hilarious…it is all presented on screen shots of a Blackberry.

I have had an update on the situation with Kaimata as well.

It seems Pearl Going and/or her alter ego Julie Malcolm have tried to lay a complaint with Qualmark.

Pearl Going/Julie Malcolm called last Thursday to lay the complaint. The person at Qualmark advised to put it in writing.

Over the weekend he saw the Motella blog.

Pearl…or was it Julie… then called him again today to follow up on the complaint.

He recognised the voice called her out as Julie – well you know where this was all going.

Suffice to say they have binned the file.

Pearl needs to learn NFWAB.

Since I made that list she went on to try and scam the Auckland fashion scene which Isaac Likes mocked beautifully.

Alarmingly she has continued on her fraudulent ways and the story I am about to tell you shows she cares not a jot for anyone but herself.

Pearl Going is currently scamming her way around the South Island pretending she is a travel writer and conning stays in luxury accommodation. I know this because one proprietor of such and establishment sat and listened to her crap for hours and grew suspicious that such a waif could have achieved all she said she had. As Sian-Pearl, the name she is currently using went off to bed the owner of the lodge sat down in front of her computer and googled Pearl Going. The rat that was a bit whiffy just got very smelly indeed.

The lodge that Pearl had managed to stay at is Kaimata on the Otago Peninsula. I spoke with co-owner Rachel about the strange visitation of Pearl Going. She was alarmed at what she discovered and so put an end to what she thought was likely to be an expensive guest given her propensity to stay places and not pay. I have also been provided with the extensive emails between Kaimata and Pearl’s alleged personal assistant Julie Malcolm. It is the opinion of Rachel at Kaimata and also of this blogger that Julie doesn’t exist and is in fact Pearl going running her usual scam of pretending to have extensive staff. From the emails I also now know her latest “company” incarnation which she is using to pass herself as credible to the un-suspecting luxury accomodation providers.

Pearl Going is a fraud, she needs to be stopped and it is smart thinking people like Rachel at Kaimata that will help shut her down.

Rachel from Kaimata tells the story in her email to me:

I took a booking (extending our industry rate) from an agent Julie Malcolm of A+P Media a couple of weeks ago, representing ‘a big’ travel writer & publisist, wanting to stay etc etc. (I had googled A+P media and got a news site which I assumed this big wig maybe attached to).¬†She was confirmed to stay with us for one night last night, and then St Clair beach resort tonight – this hasn’t happened. – sh’es currently at the Mercure in the city.

After finding out Julie Malcolm’s special client’s name on the day of her arrival, Sian Pearl arrived yesterday afternnon around 3pm. Her conversation (inapproriate name dropping for a person at her level, was telling blatant lies about surfing – Kyle is known and active in NZ surf industry circles and many more tales), and her¬†behaviour¬†(no interest in our product!, drunk lots of wine, 3 cheeseboards before dinner as well as a 3-course dinner …….), no business card, – just thought things were too wrong and googled her.

Lo and behold – you and isaac likes, her own IT girl site ….

Anyway I thought right, will give this Julie a call – rang her at 11.30 last nite – who answered Julie’s phone – Pearl of course – who promptly explained they had swapped phones because our website said we have no internet access so she took the blackberry .. ….

We called the police last night, and had our local police on standby this morning after being advised by Julie (by email) that Pearl would be leaving immediately after our mistreatment –
Pearl paid – wasn’t going to let her go without paying, she knew she had been busted and was gone by 9am this morning –

You might be amused by correspondence with “julie” to follow

The end of story?
She indictaed she won’t be writing anything good about Kaimata –
She didnt pay the taxi company she had jacked up to take her around Dunedin
I rang St Clair Beach Resort and they turned her away after also consulting with the police.
I laid a formal complaint with the police.
I am not bothering to reply to Pearl’s last email.

Amongst the many claims that Pearl made during her bizarre stay with the lovely people at Kaimata was that she was Manu Bennett‘s (Crixus in Spartacus)publicist.

From the emails I have been provided we find out:

Pearl is one of the founding partners of New York based AP Group which is what AP Media and AP Brand fall under. She is not my direct boss but is actually the boss of my
boss. I’m sure company records if you look them up will state her as a¬†Director.

Please see this article it is one of the first things that come up in my browser when I search us:
http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/waiheke-marketplace/3841143/Spartacus-star-to-call-Waiheke-home

This was published in a Fairfax NZ newspaper, they are hardly going to right that if the company does not exist.

Oh so now we have a supposedly New York company called AP Group. The logos and rubbish confidentiality statements on the email also used the following company names and brands:

  • A P Group Holdings¬†Ltd
  • A+P Brand
  • A+P Media

None of those google, at all. The Companies office does show an AP Group Holdings Limited that strangely is registered to a Sian Pearl Going in Whangarei, which is awful far from New York. At the bottom of each email there are telephone numbers EUR: +44 7 936 381 039 | USA: +1 212 502 965
420 | UAE: +971 507 592 011. I also have obtained Pearl’s mobile number 021 1247011. I don’t get any answer from some of those phones now.

The Europe number doesn’t connect, neither does the US number, I got someone to answer the UAE number but they never speak. So much for a global organisation representing talent like Manu Bennett.

I have been unable to get hold of Manu Bennett to ascertain whether this loopy cow is actually his publicist but given that every thing else about the woman is a living lie I suspect this is too.

But Pearl is ever so important. Her “Brand Assistant” writes:

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for the chat today, we have a writer in Dunedin for two nights on the 25th and 26th of Jan. We would like her to spend one of these nights out at Kaimata if you have space available.

She will spend her other night in Dunedin at somewhere in the city, she has the brief to write about Dunedin in travel terms for the world cup. Typically the media outlets we work with are high end so it has been a struggle to find places down there that are suitable to be profiled and we have heard Kaimata fits the bill. This will most likely be placed with London media outlets.

If you can please advise if you have a room available on either of these nights that would be superb, we have no issue with paying for the room etc.

Thank you in advance, you can reach me on my NZ number 021 749 725 should you need to.

:)

As we already know from Rachel’s email above there is no Julie Malcolm, just Pearl with two phones and¬†definitely¬†two personalities. She is sending emails prepping the mark, touting that she is a travel writer and getting the hopes of these folk who have put their heart and soul into developing their businesses up that they will get some much needed attention during the world wide recession.

As is usual with Pearl Going, when she is tumbled, in this case by an incredulous Rachel from Kaimata she goes all legal and threatening. When Rachel rumbled her plan to scalp them this is the chain of emails that followed:

Rachel,
I don’t know what is going on down there but I have just received a¬†call¬†from Sian and she has completely let fire on me.
She has said that she received a call from you at 11:30pm tonight while¬†she was sleeping looking for me. I switched out ph’s with her at the
airport as her blackberry can not be out of service due to her line of work.

I don’t really understand what is going on or why you would call my number¬†at this hour of the night? As you can understand she is fairly
bewildered.

As you can also understand it makes me look very bad as I arranged for her¬†to come there so Kaimata could be included in pre world cup pieces we are¬†pitching and checked out for future client stays. She also ripped me up¬†saying you had something to sort with me? I’m not entirely sure what¬†that¬†is.

What ever has happened between now and 7 o’clock ish when she sent me¬†an¬†email asking me to recommend your establishment to Joanna Bourke at¬†Mollies Hotel and also confirm with Karin Horen (the wife of our client¬†Manu Bennett) dates to book on her behalf has changed to “Julie, I’m¬†feeling very uneasy with the energy here, the call was bizarre. I want¬†to¬†leave asap. Sort it out”. Thank god her partner had rugby training and¬†didn’t come with her or this could have been more of catastrophe than¬†it¬†seems now.

This is a serious situation there are hours of business people operate¬†under on a Tuesday. I don’t really know what else to say, can you¬†please¬†advise me of a total invoice to pay as it is most likely she will be¬†leaving early in the morning. What the hell I’m supposed to do about¬†already mentioning you to Joanna and sending Karin the contact details¬†I¬†don’t actually know.

I will try calling tomorrow mid morning after my morning phone ins with the UK.
Regards,
Julie.

No use calling the UK Julie or is that Pearl, the number doesn’t work. Meanwhile Rachel responds calling out, in a polite manner her bullshit. The response is an even longer rambling concotion of bullshit sent by the ever desperate Pearl holed up in the room with her …or is it Julies..Blackberry.

Rachel,
After a very interesting conversation with St Clair beach resort and a ph call to our advisers I have been advised to only communicate with you via written form.

I feel you are somewhat untrustworthy with your response below as it differs from the claims you made to Pearl calling me unprofessional and claiming that I threatened you with her rugby player boyfriend.

To clarify I was simply pointing out how terrible the situation¬†was and stating that it could of been a lot worse if her partner was there¬†(I meant for myself) it would of meant not only a screw up infront of her¬†but also a screw up in front of one of NZ’s premier sportsman who I have¬†the greatest respect for.

I am currently consulting a lawyer who is looking over my email at this moment.

Possibly there has been some misunderstanding on your behalf as to who I¬†am in this company and what role I actually play.¬†Pearl¬†is one of the¬†founding partners of New York based AP Group which is what AP Media and AP¬†Brand fall under. She is not my direct boss but is actually the boss of my¬†boss. I’m sure company records if you look them up will state her as a¬†Director.

Please see this article it is one of the first things that come up in my browser when I search us:
http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/waiheke-marketplace/3841143/Spartacus-star-to-call-Waiheke-home

This was published in a Fairfax NZ newspaper, they are hardly going to right that if the company does not exist.

I find how you have treated Pearl very saddening. You see as I am sure Joanna will tell you, Pearl is one of the best allies to have in this
business. While I am aware that bloggers and tabloids papers are vocal in their dislike it is only because she is very good at her job as our chief publicist.

As she is a publicist by trade I would have thought you would be aware that she would probably write under pseudonym for her travel writing, surely you must know this is not uncommon?

What you have said to St Clair beach resort and how you are attempting to paint the situation is bordering on defamation. It is also irresponsible.

Rachel can you honestly expect me to send our clients your way after this?¬†Do you know how important¬†Pearl¬†is to not only this company but our¬†clients? To have treated her that way is completely unacceptable. For Kyle¬†to say to the woman who pays my wages when she stated a call at that hour¬†was not acceptable “What business is it of yours? We can call Julie when¬†we like, that is between her and us”.

I see below that you are attempting to validate your actions by stating we¬†are a media company it must be ok to call me at any hour. To answer you on¬†that one, If I were a publicist – yes ok in an emergency please do call¬†between the hours of 11pm and midnight. I am not a publicist I am a brand¬†manager, meaning I work in the corporate world between the hours of 8am –¬†6pm at the latest.

The saddest part about this is given the type of person she is if you had spoken to her directly this morning and asked about what other pieces she had written she probably would have pulled them up on an ipad for you to look at.

This doesn’t just go away because you call people up and tell god only¬†knows what story. This will go further and it already has, can I suggest¬†at some point you actually front up with an apology about your¬†misunderstanding?

Further more you charged her for been there only 14hrs or so, you treated her like a criminal, you ignored my request for an invoice on two
occasions this morning.

On my last note in your situation first rule of business is: Customer is¬†always right. You don’t deserve to be a qualmark 4+ star rating.

I am sure you will hear from our lawyer with a cease and desist notice at their nearest availability.

Regards,

Julie

Oh dear, Julie…or is that Pearl…is having a right little rant isn’t she. Threatening lawyers and bad reputations and the like, yet not a single link or contact detail anywhere. Except to some specious paid advertorial in an obscure part of Stuff.

If Pearl even pays her lawyers, it will be a drop kick like she used on me and that was real successful NOT. I don’t think the good folk at Kaimata have anything to fear from this little fraudster. If she thinks that what Rachel and kyle did in tossing her sorry lying arse from their place borders on defamation then this post¬†definitely¬†is and I welcome her to try and sue me so we can settle once and for all the sad truth about Pearl Going and her life of a fantasy.

Pearl Going is a menace, she must be stopped. She was run out of Auckland by me and by Isaac Likes, now it is time to run her out of the South Island. Accommodation providers need to be aware of her activities, and her background. Hopefully the Police will track this little cow down and sort her out pronto.
