This Adult-centered Cartoon for society shows clearly how scammers use social media and reviews to get “free stuff” via “review extortion” methodologies.
HOW TO VERIFY FAKE REVIEWS – LESSONS AND REAL CASE STUDIES
QUICKEST WAY OF VERIFYING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRITICISM VS. FRAUD (TROLLs, SCAMs, etc.)
THE QUICKEST WAY TO DETERMINE A REVIEW’S TRUTHFULNESS is to compare the signed “Terms and Conditions/Contracts” with information provided on this page to any “Criticisms”; if they match then it is indeed “fair criticisms” HOWEVER if the criticisms differ from the Terms and Conditions/Contracts then it’s 100% Fraud (trolls or scams) with the aim to intentionally mislead the market and social economically damage good people via unethical libel and slander.
Example: After being shown all types of cameras for hours, you decided to buy a disposable Polaroid camera (do it yourself – knowledge based travel) and received a professional 2 hour training on how to use it with Q&A sessions (because you didn’t have the cash to buy a better camera)… if that’s the situation, then you don’t go back to the shop with the goal of committing extortion by threatening the shop/shop owners that you will destroy their public image by intentionally misleading the world into believing that you bought a DSLR Camera and complaining how the camera you bought (intentionally not stating it was a disposable Polaroid camera) doesn’t operate like Professional Canon DSLRs (all inclusive packaged leisure travel) – that’s just unethical and dumb.
HOW TO SPOT TROLLS AND EXTREMISTS
GER to GER HONORS EVERYONE
As you will discover, GER to GER does indeed have a very “high success rate” among 1000s of travelers and has always honored requests when travelers have produced the necessary documentation in accordance with best domestic/international policies… What is unfortunate are the handful of scammers/extortionists and trolls that resort to “slander/libel” as: 1) they didn’t produce the documentation to GER to GER Office 2) they were caught violating GER to GER’s terms/conditions 3) they were trying to scam their way to unethically obtaining a free trip, defraud nomadic families via extortion tactics, etc. When those individuals were caught and their scam failed – they resorted to online public libel/slander… this matter has been greatly researched (by us and other professional organizations) and it’s in this area of our website that your will learn more.
WHY WOULD PEOPLE LIE ONLINE?
MONEY (EXTORTION, FRUAD, DEFRAUD), COMPETITION (UNETHICALLY STEAL BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES), RACISM, NEGATIVE PR CAREER LAUNCHING (BLOGGERS SEO ASSOCIATION TACTICS), POLITICS, IGNORANT HATE CRIMES, EXTREMISTS SPREADING LIES, ETC.
THERE ARE LITERALLY 100S OF REASONS WHY.
How to spot disinformation
Sensationalism MAKES fame!
When Media PROs are OFTEN CAUGHT intentionally exaggerating disasters greatly – you shouldn’t trust read, hear and see without proper fact verifications, especially reviews/blogs as many DESIRE to be known; opportunities, money, etc.
AGAIN – THIS AREA OF OUR SITE IS SET-UP FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES TO ENSURE THAT WE ALL LEARN FROM INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT LESSONS AND KNOWLEDGE SHARE TO ENSURE THAT “GOOD PEOPLE AND GOOD BUSINESSES” ARE NOT SO EASILY VICTIMIZED ON TRAVEL PLATFORMS. LIKEWISE, IT’S OUR HOPE AND DESIRE THAT TRAVEL PLATFORMS WILL INCREASE THEIR “SECURITY AND PROTECTIVE VERIFICATION MEASURES WITHOUT PREJUDICE; TRAVEL PLATFORMS SHOULD PROTECT BUSINESSES FROM SCAMS, FAKE/DISHONEST DEFAMATORY REVIEWS, ETC., BY VERIFYING ALL USER ACCOUNTS (FAKE/REAL), FACTS (TRIP CONTRACTS, TERMS/CONDITIONS, ETC.), ETC. IT’S “RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS ETHICS” TO ENSURE THAT GOOD PEOPLE AND ETHICAL BUSINESSES “DO NOT” GO OUT OF BUSINESS OWING TO SCAMS AND TROLLS THAT MANIPULATE TRAVEL PLATFORMS. HENCE THIS AREA OF OUR SITE AIMS TO CLEARLY HIGHLIGHT “REAL CASE STUDIES” OF HOW EASY IT IS FOR UNETHICAL INDIVIDUALS TO MANIPULATE TRAVEL PLATFORMS WITH THE GOAL OF INFLICTING INCREDIBLE SOCIAL ECONOMIC DAMAGES ONTO TARGETED VICTIMS (GOOD PEOPLE, GOOD BUSINESSES, ETC.)
On September 13, 2018 GER to GER officially received a “Thank You” letter from Trip Advisor
GER to GER was thanked for its “vital role” concerning assessing, mapping and combating Travel Scams and Fraudulent Reviews. We would like to share a couple “snippets” from a much larger letter that was sent to us…
… “But we can’t do it alone – and I want to thank you, our business community, for playing such a vital role in our ongoing fight against paid review fraud. You’ve kept your eyes open, you’ve reported suspicious activity – and since 2015, our fraud investigations have stopped the activities of more than 60 paid review companies worldwide with your help.”…
“In this fight against paid review fraud, we’re beyond grateful to have partners like you. Thanks again for all of your help – and here’s to more wins like this one!”
– Trip Advisor CEO
IT’S BEEN SURREAL FOR MR. FROMER
Until receiving this letter… for the last few years it’s been surreal… I, MR. FROMER, felt like BumbleBee given the task to protect “earth and its peoples” while trolls, scammers, extortionists, criminals, extremists, etc., a.k.a Decepticons were continuously trying to take us down (online/offline via their unethical networking). During which, I had to protect the one female who trusted me the most to defeat the Decepticons and protect ‘earth and its peoples’ (Mongolia, the nomadic families, etc.) via “publicly training” (“…fightback Bee!”) – after years of being humble it was time to show another side of myself to strongly discourage extremists, etc. Result, within a matter seconds it became clear to everyone – today it’s 100% better than the past; Decepticons are fleeing.
It’s a male Mongolian cultural thing…
those who are indeed trained have a certain respected status.
WE ARE HEAR TO PROVIDE UNIQUE EXPERIENCES – NOT TO POLICE SCAMMERS. HOWEVER IF THEY UNETHICALLY INFLUENCE OUR RURAL FAMILIES THEN WE HAVE A DUTY TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT.
EXPERIENCED GUARDIANS ARE ADAPTIVE TO ADVANCE THEIR ENVIRONS – IT’S ABOUT BALANCE… IN 2018, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE TRAVELERS FOR THEIR HONEST REVIEWS AND TRIP ADVISOR FOR TAKING CORRECTIVE MEASURES – THANK YOU!
I “PERSONALLY” FORGIVE YOU TRIP ADVISOR, HOWEVER, THIS AREA OF OUR SITE MUST REMAIN FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES AS AN “INDUSTRY LEARNING POINT”; NOT AS A MEANS TO “HURT” ANYONE BUT IN-FACT THE OPPOSITE. THIS AREA IS BEING CURRENTLY DEVELOPED WITH THE GOAL OF BRINGING ‘GREATER AWARENESS’ TO THE IMPORTANCE OF “RESPONSIBLE TOURISM” AND THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING ITS PRACTITIONERS, COMMUNITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS FROM THESE REAL ISSUES THAT HAVE PLAGUED THE INDUSTRY FOR YEARS. GRANTED REVIEWS ARE ‘USER SUBMITTED’ NONETHELESS SAFEGUARDS MUST BE INTRODUCED TO PROTECT SOCIETY FROM DISHONEST/FAKE DEFAMATORY REVIEWS THAT ARE UNETHICALLY EXECUTING FOREIGN AND/OR LOCALLY BASED EXTREMISTS’/COMPETITORS’ HIDDEN AGENDAS. ON ANOTHER NOTE – I WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK ALL THE WONDERFUL TRAVELERS IN 2017 AND 2018 (AND PRIOR YEARS AS WELL).- MR. FROMER
MUCH LIKE NELSON MADELA, THE FOUNDER (MR. FROMER) WAS HARASSED BY EXTREMISTS FOR YEARS JUST FOR TRYING TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT AND INFORM SOCIETY OF THE TRUTHS TO COMBAT FRAUD, SCAMS, TROLLS
THE RESULT OF TRAVEL SCAMS, FRAUDS AND TROLLS…
WE HAVE TO “CLOSE DOWN” SOME RURAL COMMUNITIES AND THOSE RURAL FAMILIES’ (husbands, wives, children, grandparents) ALTERNATIVE INCOMES WILL NOW SUFFER – SO GO THANK A TRIP ADVISOR SCAMMER OR TROLL
NOTICE WITHIN MONGOLIA:
GER TO GER MONGOLIA, from September 2018, shall only be offering GER to GER trained communities – owing to liabilities GER to GER can no longer in-kind support other communities that have received training from other organizations (French NGO, etc.); or until they match GER to GER’s standards via GER to GER’s intensive trainings, etc. We are saddened that we have to make this official decision as we desire to support everyone (rural communities, nomadic families, etc.), however, owing to unethical travel scammers – we are left with no choice… those non-GER to GER rural communities who do not meet GER to GER’s standards nor desire to be trained by GER to GER shall have to seek their sustainability via other means from now on owing to liabilities – travel scammers hurt everyone…
GER to GER has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY to anyone that intentionally violates UN SDGs’ 1, 4, 8, 10, 11 and 16 in relation to incredibly inexpensive, non-touristic, community-based “humanitarian aka Ethical Nomadic Adventures” with nomadic families. GER to GER COMBATs TROLLS and SCAMs in behalf of Mongolia and the Nomadic Populations IN ACCORDANCE with this area, our terms, conditions, trainings, contracts, investigative findings, etc.
THE UGLY TRUTHS AND TACTICS OF HOW TRAVEL SCAMMERS, EXTREMISTS AND TROLLS OPERATE
NOW the Opening Remarks by Jean-Luc Picard, Captain of the Starship U.S.S. Enterprise of Star Trek…
Empathetic, Open-minded and Understanding Travelers are All Welcomed,
however, travelers that threaten establishments via “1 Star” Trolling Scams to obtain FREE trips and refunds – PLEASE stay at home or kindly choose another operator. Thanks! 😉
TROLLS/SCAMS… it’s industry knowledge that trolls/scammers unethically force good businesses out of business
Aaron Kelly Law – http://www.aaronkellylaw.com/tag/tripadvisor-defamation/
Trip Advisor’s FAILED LOGIC: “Contact the user and talk to them to rectify the problem”…
REALITY: “How can one contact frauds/trolls/unethical competitors to tell them to stop when they use fake accounts and/or when their goal is NOT TO RECTIFY???”
Scammers, trolls, frauds and the like will always have 1000s of reason to “talk negative BS hype” and when asked to provide the “burden of proof” they also have another 1000+ clever reasons as to why they don’t have it, hence, nobody will take their cases (I have received ZERO calls/ZERO emails requesting me to remove this as they know I have the investigative facts, evidence, contracts, etc., which proves that I have been greatly victimized for YEARS). Often the very people that they attack via their “online reviews” are the victims when you investigate it carefully. Despite the lack of phone calls/emails – both this site and my personal site, on average, have been targeted for online hacking ranging between 300-700+ attempted hacks per day to destroy “the truth”… their only option is to hack-attack “the truth”; frauds DO what frauds DO, it’s what they do.
What if ALL online trolls and scammers acted like trolls-scammers in public?
Today, online platforms like Trip Advisor are in serious difficulties as they don’t verify user identities (any one can make a fake account), they don’t verify the facts of reviews… When a business tries to contact Trip Advisor they don’t want to review the facts but state you need to talk to that user – but when the user is a fraud or fake then how is this possible? The issues NEVER get resolved but the victim suffers the most owing to Trip Advisor’s operational negligences, etc., as Trip Advisor allows the fake defamatory or dishonest defamatory reviews (“Public Defamation”) to remain on their website without any supportive documentation (“Burden of Proof”) and so much more… The last years have proven that “TROLLS” do exist and they can be anyone – Russians, unethical Mongol competitors, disgruntled scammers, fraud networks ($1 per day/FREE or refund a trip travel scammers, etc.), extremists who destroy businesses with foreigners involved, and so much more…
Go ahead take a look a Minc Law Firm and their own research works on this matter: https://www.minclaw.com/how-do-i-remove-false-and-defamatory-reviews-from-tripadvisor/
As terribly funny as this next video is, this guy perfectly represents the putrid tactics used by scammers/ trolls found on Trip Advisor that damages the environment of good people, businesses and markets.
Hence these sites need to take more “RESPONSIBLE MEASURES” to protect victimized businesses and staff from such nonsense that not only damages their “credibility” but also protect them from fake defamatory/dishonest defamatory reviews that incite local/international extremists into unlawful acts of physical harassments, stalkings, social-economic damages, physical violence, etc., against the business and its staff. It’s 100% owing to the fake defamatory and/or dishonest defamatory reviews being published with Trip Advisor’s brand and logo attached to it that creates these issues – as the old saying goes “no action IS ACTION” which unethically makes people believe that the reviews are true when they are not. When combining that with the fact that the victim (me) has been trying to contact Trip Advisor for YEARS but their responses have been extremely unprofessional as described further down in this blog – Trip Advisor’s situation has reached 100% operational negligence, corporate fraud and even antitrust (of which Trip Advisor is already having problems with in Italy and the US Federal Trade Commission, etc.).
US Senator contacts US FTC to Investigate Trip Advisor concerning its Review Policies: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/28/travel/senator-investigation-tripadvisor.html
We sell products with a “2 hour user course and handbook” followed by tons of pre-departure Q&As (also before by emails, etc.). So really there isn’t any real reason for such scammers/trolls to exist unless they are sent intentionally to scam/troll our works… I’m 100% Empathic for this dude – LOL 😉
This video clearly represents that after tons of Q&A, 2 hour user workshop, after “using products/services” etc., this person tries to scam/defraud/gather trolling content for their scam/defraud/libel hence “trip advisor fraudsters”
BAD BLOGGERS – HIRED GUN SCAMS
BBC’S HELEN THE TRANSLATOR – WHEN YOU FIND OUT THEY ARE A CON-ARTISTS AND IT’S TOO LATE
Ms. Roman’s pre-trianing famed quote “I lived in China for 8 years, I don’t need training about the Mongols – I know Mongol Culture”… and with that statement alone – every Mongol’s blood pressure greatly increased across Mongolia.
Tabitha Roman and Robbie Fredericks are 2 famed travel scammers that have been caught by us and even DELETED by Lonely Planet. They are what you call “hired guns” – they seek incentives to troll companies/people via their blog; as shown above, Tabitha “trolls for work”. It doesn’t matter how much you train/educate her before a trip – she has an agenda and she’ll accomplish it shamelessly. Much like “BBC’s Helen The Translator” comic video – she’ll lie about her capacity with the goal of making you (and your company) look like the idiots in-front of the international community.
Everyone GETs Trolled
In today’s world… if you are someone that does something (even famous actors and actresses) – it’s most likely you have been TROLLED
Seriously we invite you to do some research about Trip Advisor Issues and/or read true cases from well known Law Firms who are defending countless innocent people/ businesses from Trip Advisor abuse:
Aaron Kelly Law – http://www.aaronkellylaw.com/tag/tripadvisor-defamation/
Kwikchex Firm – https://kwikchex.com/
TROLLS, CON-ARTISTS, EXTREMISTS, ETC., SPREAD RUMORS WITHIN ONE OR TWO POSTS WHILE THE INNOCENT SPEND YEARS PROVING THEIR INNOCENCE.
Our sites are/have been targeted for online hacking which is currently ranging between 300-700+ attempted hacks per day to destroy “the truth”; as their only option is to hack-attack “the truth” – frauds DO what frauds DO, it’s what they do.
IN ONE DAY, 700+ BLOCKED/REGISTERED ATTEMPTS AT HACKING OUR SITES; IF THE TRUTH WASN’T SO DAMAGING THEN THERE IS ZERO REASON TO HACK THESE WEBSITES SO REGULARLY AND SO EXTREMELY…
NOTE: both “GER to GER” and “Zanjan Fromer” are uncommon foreign names which generally would NOT be targeted by hackers – it’s 100% owing to the release of damaging truths that both sites are constantly targeted.
First Scams Date Back to 2010
First Scams date back to 2010 when Golden Gobi Guesthouse and Tours stole “GER to GER LLC” company name to unethically steal clients – that was corrected by official letters and they changed it to “Family to Family” that summer. It was from this time forward that GER to GER incorporated SDGs 8 and 10 before their 2015 introduction – to track, map and combat scammers and trolls; Golden Gobi continued their unethical name-manipulations/variations till around 2016.
Have a look via the Internet Archive Link:
Scams and Fraud have existed on ResponsibleTravel.com
This International Operator/Travel Platform has ILLEGALLY used “GER to GER” LLC to IRRESPONSIBLY AND UNETHICALLY steal opportunities from Mongolia’s nomadic communities and families by selling/operating trips within the territory of Mongolia by ILLEGALLY using a “legally registered” company name, brand, trademark, etc.
Within the FIRST SECTION of this page about trolls/scams it’s very clear case that they do exist and their methodologies have been extremely well examined and investigated by not only us but also by other professional Law and Investigation Firms… Our works are STRONG confirmations that this Trip Advisor Issue has become a global epidemic that needs a cure as it has even reached all corners of remote countries like Mongolia.
NOT ALL PREDATORS ARE BAD…
MR. ZANJAN FROMER IS THE LONE ALASKAN SHEEPDOG to the FLOCKS, AND, “ALPHA WOLF” TO THE UNETHICAL COYOTE PREDATORS (TROLLS, SCAMS, ETC.)
"It’s how we are forged from challenges that defines us... adapt to succeed"
24+ YEARS OF POST SOVIET TRANSITIONAL STABILIZATION
WHAT IT REALLY FEELS LIKE FOR Zanjan-Fromer.com (National Geographic’s Geotourism Ambassador) AFTER 24+ YEARS OF CARRYING MONGOLIA’s post-soviet transitional social economic development ON HIS BACK

My Message to Gaslighting Trolls, Fraudsters, Con-artists, etc.
“THIS IS SPARTA!”
How I (Leonidas) feel about con-artists, fraudsters, trolls, extortionists, dumb ops, extremists, abusers, all types of traffickers, unethical special interest groups, unethical competitors, communistic stupidity, etc., a.k.a Xerxes, his messengers and their gaslighting in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia …
“I KNOW WHAT OPPRESSION IS…
I’M NATIVE AMERICAN”
I’m a respectful International Specialist with a broad/diverse background that contributed towards Mongolia’s post-soviet social economic transitional development and stabilization for over 24+ years; I am NOT Muslim, NOT Iranian, NOT Turkish, NOT Gay – SO FU Fanatics/Extremists that have tried to damage our works across Mongolia and the world because of your ignorance of which I have been very patient with for over 6+ years.
Being Alaskan Tlingit/Native American, I, Mr. Fromer know firsthand the importance of “Human Rights” and “Fairness”; my tribe was “considered to be illegal” in the United States until the 1980-90s regardless of its incredible history (The Tlingit tribe saved the USA/Canada however owing to US-Native American conflicts our Tlingit history was politically suppressed till now – if it wasn’t for our Tlingit Tribe half of USA/Canada would be speaking fluent “Russian” today) – much like how the Mongols’ history was suppressed till 1989. Till today, Native American tribes continue their fight to protect their basic rights which is still largely ignored; hence, I have a very good comprehension of all the challenges.
When Native Americans are assisting Mongolians to establish “ethical market linkages” to the global tourism industry while individuals and large companies intentionally oppress our efforts unethically – this situation is no different than how Native Americans were being treated for hundreds of years. Learn our history – our social-economics were completely stolen/destroyed by unethical traders/businesses, our traditional food sources were destroyed to force us Native Americans into starvation so we would give up (over 59 million buffalo were slaughtered – today only 200,000 are left), our Native American warriors were murdered for protecting their families (women and children) that were raped/murdered for sport by foreigners (common tactic used by foreigners – Native American families were held as hostages to subdue the Native American warriors to which afterwards the Native American families would be murdered in front of the Native American warriors and then the Native American warriors would be murdered last, or, by allowing the spreading of foreign diseases which killed over 90% of the population of Native Americans), our women were sanitized so they couldn’t give birth to children, and worse… Or how Jewish families suffered social economic persecutions for being “themselves” under Nazi Germany… Society needs to grow-up and ensure “free/fair” market access for both Native Americans and Mongols alike and stop all the social economic oppressions – otherwise these unethically oppressive actions are exactly how Germany’s famed Hitler and the rest started; it’s always blind ignorance guided by elitist justifications to oppress others for unethical agendas/gains.
It’s due time that the international community owns their failures – for the last years they assumed I was middle-eastern owing to my human rights’ name (and oppressed me for it) but how quickly they have changed their oppression-tactics (trying to stop) after discovering that I’m Native American – especially that I’m Alaskan Tlingit (I’m not Iranian nor have I ever been Muslim in my life – this was a fable started by some super ignorant fanatics who wanted to unethically hurt our works in Mongolia. In fact, my non-Tlingit given name “Zanjan” (given by my father who is German) originates from a city where a mother and her son were killed by extremists because they didn’t want to be muslim – hence my name is STRONGLY associated with human rights concerning the “freedom to choose one’s religion”). Regardless of society trying to stop their abusiveness – that still doesn’t help me to recover years of business losses, opportunities, etc.
As for the question as to who is best suited to assist the Mongols? Mongols have a saying… “Brother and sisters of the same pains” – find someone else who has 24+ years of operating overseas in the ‘eye of the geographical storm’ who firsthand-knows the best and worse of the Mongols for as long as I have known them with my broad range of expertise (post soviet transitional social economic stabilization, etc.)/experiences then I will take heed.
FROM NEARLY 7,000+ SUCCESSES OVER A DECADE: 4 BAD LUCK – REST ARE SCAMS, TROLLS AND FAKE USER REVIEWS
AT GER TO GER WE ARE INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EXPERTS/SPECIALISTS AND WE STAND WITH OUR RURAL COMMUNITIES
NATGEO GEOTOURISM AMBASSADOR WENT DEEP
National Geographic Society’s Geotourism Ambassador (Mr. Zanjan Fromer) went deep to investigate/track/map/combat travel scams (online/offline), disruptors (online/offline), unethical special interest groups (online/offline), bullies (online/offline), stalkers (online/offline), extremists (online/offline), etc., that plague major travel/social media platforms which harms good people, businesses and even countries (fraud, defraud, insurance/cancellation scams, dishonest reviews, fake defamatory reviews, etc.); 6 years of investigations – tracking, mapping, learning their threatening tactics, networks, methods of seeding false reviews to manipulate markets/people (anti-trust, corporate fraud, etc.), manipulating travel platforms’ Super Authoritative SEO unethically to distort Google Rankings (Google, Facebook, Trip Advisor, Lonely Planet, etc.) with misinformation/false reviews, etc., and now combating and taking down these unethical-environs via awareness campaigns and contacting associated Government agencies, associations, businesses, etc.
Check out the videos that highlights Mr. Fromer’s love and passion for his humanitarian works, social economic development initiatives and more; Mr. Fromer official Panel Speaker for the USAID funded Leaders Advancing Democracy Summit 2018
On January 18, 2018 – Mr. Zanjan Fromer was officially invited by the USAID funded LEAD Mongolia (Leaders Advancing Democracy) as an official panelist speaker for their International Summit held in Mongolia; Mongolia, Bhutan, Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan. These two videos provides you indepth credible insight into Mr. Zanjan Fromer. The US Embassy of Mongolia has posted the panelists’ speeches into 2 videos on their Facebook Page (LINK) https://www.facebook.com/USEmbMongolia/
(VIDEO 1 – from 6:00)
(VIDEO 2 – from 9:35)
CRITICAL LINKSTrip Advisor “Scampackers” are not welcomed:
- US Embassy in Mongolia Issues International “Security Alert” about Social Media Scamming
- GER to GER’s Official letter to the US Federal Trade Commission
- US Senator Calls for Investigation of TripAdvisor Over Its Posting Policy
- Learn more about Scampackers, Disruptors, Trolls, Tactics and Videos
- Trip Advisor Fined for Fake/ Dishonest Reviews
Negative Impacts of Dishonest Reviews – Micro to Macro
“Dishonest reviews negatively impacts 100s of nomadic families’ incomes across the country that they use towards health/educational care for nomadic children, medical visits for pregnant women, medication and life-saving surgeries, etc., and it also negatively influences the delicate rural social economic supply chains and much more. Dishonest reviews also “jades” the locals who care while inflaming extremists, bullies, stalkers, unethical special interest groups, etc., into unethical actions against foreigners that are tourists and workers within a foreign country”
Can anyone calculate the negative social economic impacts that this has on a country’s GDP?
This is one of 1000s of case studies – world wide – now calculate the global GDP impacts…

I’M GOING TO TEACH YOU HOW TO IDENTIFY THE “COYOTES”, TROLLS, SCAMS, ETC.
The Art of Exaggerating a Speck of Dust into becoming Mt. Everest
The “TACTIC” of UNETHICALLY DISCREDITING a WELL ESTABLISHED and CREDITABLE RESOURCE is used
1) As a LAST resort 2) When FACED with an IRREFUTABLE TRUTH
Now link the dishonest reviewers on Trip Advisor to their methods, writing styles (to provoke your emotions; anger, etc.), etc.… and an unethical commonality emerges around a small aspect that they try to unethically employ to discredit nomadic families, our office and me (Mr. Fromer) via fraud, defraud, public defamation, etc., once the scammers all got caught – they had to strike first to discredit me and our organization out of fear that the truth would be released.
- NONE of these Trip Advisor Scammers stated the they were on a “Humanitarian Trip”; they all intentionally misled people to think they where traveling on Packaged Vacations.
- NONE of these Trip Advisor Scammers stated that they only paid $200-$350 USD for an average 7 Day “Humanitarian Trip” (you can’t pay that amount for 1 or 2 days “all inclusive” in Paris, Berlin, UK, etc.) that includes:
- BUYING bus tickets on the travelers’ behalf,
- COORDINATING rural jeeps on the travelers’ behalf,
- nomadic accommodations in a Ger/Yurt,
- three LARGE nomadic meals a day with unlimited drinks,
- a nomadic guide that would travel every day 20+ kilometers with them and 20+ kilometers back home (averaging 40+ kilometers per day),
- horses and camels to ride and with ox carts that carry travelers’ luggages (backpacks, etc.) for safety and comfort,
- traveling across Mongolia’s most pristine and off the path locations,
- never being rushed like standard tours but rather allowed TONS of FREE TIME to stop, explore, walk, trek and even have picnics!
- NONE of these Trip Advisor Scammers stated that GER to GER Office and Rural Nomadic Families INTENSIVELY took care of their well-beings professionally and that they were:
- Provided FREE CONSULTATIONS on Mongolia travel that sometimes took hours; maps, travel routes, plans, budgeting, transportation methods, etc.
- Professionally trained in humanitarian 101; outback to international social economic supply/value chain analysis and mapping; country info; history and important highlights; customer vs. cultural service; DOs and DON’Ts; cultural and cross-cultural analysis/studies; nomadic lifestyle; “Leave No Trace Travel” – environmental protection; activity health/safety – horseback, trekking, etc.; wildlife awareness – wolves, snakes, insects, etc.; extreme situational “survival 101” in relation to weather, terrains, navigation (sun, terrain, vegetation, geographical terrain vectoring, etc.), physical, mental and medical; risk mitigation/management; emergency COMMs methodology; itinerary confirmation; language; and more.).
- Provided FREE luggage storage for weeks in the GER to GER Office.
- SAFE and well looked after; mountains, deserts, etc.
- SAFE and NEVER had an injury due to negligence; horseback riding, camel riding, etc.
- Provided plenty of opportunities to PROACTIVELY participate in the daily life of nomadic families; just jump in and participate, etc.
- Provided plenty of opportunities to use the family as a base camp; to go hiking, trekking and exploring the surrounding areas.
- Provided plenty of food and drinks; generally sometimes it’s more than 3 meals a day.
- Provided plenty of time for rest and relaxation; nomads love it when travelers take it easy.
- Provided plenty of COMMUNICATIONS ACCESS to contact GER to GER; we make sure that if travelers are confused/etc., that they are able to contact GER to GER Office via the nomadic families mobile phones to which we clarify and communicate the situations so that the nomadic families and travelers have clarity if required.
When I start to list the COUNTLESS FACTS (Beyond GER to GER’s 13 Levels of Verifications, fulfillment of UN’s SDGs, etc.), these Trip Advisor Scammers are FACED with many IRREFUTABLE TRUTHS – as CLEARLY STATED on all GER to GER documentations, travelers are 100% LIABLE for THE QUALITY OF THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES as they are NOT TRAVELING ON A PACKAGED TRIP and as we ‘professionals’ are not traveling with them (we provide training that has proven itself to be invaluable – GER to GER’s Health/Safety record has been maintained at a all time high of 99.9% for over a 13+ years.). Nonetheless:
- Is it CONTRACTUALLY stated that “Humanitarian Trips” are purely “Voluntary” and that the travelers 100% assume the risk/quality of their experiences to which ALL travelers sign the contract and attend a 2 hour training workshop prior to traveling on a GER to GER Humanitarian Trip? YES.
- In accordance with GER to GER’s services did we assist with bus tickets? Yes.
- Did we provide rural jeeps? Yes.
- Did the Nomadic families take care of the travelers’ health and safety? Yes.
- Did the nomadic families provide food and drinks – 3 times a day? Yes.
- Did the nomadic families send a family member to guide the travelers? Yes.
- Is it clearly stated in GER to GER’s Terms & Conditions, Contracts, Disclaimers, 2 hour Training Workshops, etc., that Nomadic families have the right to alter itineraries/activities based on their personal judgements/external influences (culture, weather, family matters, exhaustion, travelers’ abilities, etc.)? YES.
INDEED discrediting an established professionals/an entire organization is the last resort for scammers/disruptors/unethical competitors that are faced with so many irrefutable truths; they always take 1 small aspect (typically extremely minor itinerary changes that are 100% allowed) and extremely exaggerate it with the goal of damaging people if their scam didn’t work; they don’t talk about all the good-stuff as it doesn’t support their scams, however, they’ll greatly exaggerate a speck of dust into Mt. Everest…

It’s the SHEEPDOG that PROTECTS the flock…
ALPHA-DOG ON DECK!
These are our lives, our life’s works, etc., that are on the line… have some respect.
Definitive LIST of how GER to GER ACTIVELY FULFILLS the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Today’s major issue in Mongolia are irresponsible tour operators/competitors unethically profiteering/gaining from the ‘responsible tourism’ brand by sabotaging Responsible Tour Operators’ markets via disruptors, trolls, scammers, etc., that use Trip Advisor to damage the alternative incomes of nomadic families via factless statements of concern that the tourism industry “damages” nomads. What truly damages nomadic families are unethical individuals/scams/dishonest reviews and lack of market distinction now between responsible and irresponsible as everyone claims to be ‘responsible’. Hence, GERtoGER is using SDGs to highlight our ‘Responsible Tourism’ methodology:
- SDG 1 – NO POVERTY: 80% of Humanitarian Trips’ finances are returned to rural nomads, drivers, etc.; 20% towards rural communities’ marketing and workshops.
- SDG 2 – ZERO HUNGER: We have/continue to employ nomadic families who are the poorest of the poor.
- SDG 3 – GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING: trainings on health/safety/reduce sanitation illnesses (Hepatitis A, etc.); incomes for medical insurance, visits, medication, surgeries, etc.
- SDG 4 – QUALITY EDUCATION: Via workshops/incomes nomadic adults/children are receiving education via workshops (locals/internationals), schools, high schools and universities.
- SDG 5 – GENDER EQUALITY: Over 70% of our national managers are women; rurally, women care for travelers’ family experience (food, drink, etc.) while men generally guide (though some women guide).
- SDG 6 – CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION: (TRAINING/OPERATIONS) 1) nomads/travelers – “Leave No Trace” 2) waste management to mitigate watershed damages along routes, etc.
- SDG 7 – AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY: assisted all nomadic families to obtain savings accounts across Mongolia – credit histories used for financial services/small-loans to procure solar/wind powered units.
- SDG 8 – DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: Social economic development via tourism while combatting negative aspects of open market growth. Over 90% of HR are rural; via “Geotourism” we strengthen rural supply chains.
- SDG 9 – INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE: “GER to GER” is the Mongol Empire’s ancient “kinetic supply chain” – today this ancient supply chain advances Mongolia’s social economic aspirations.
- SDG 10 – REDUCE INEQUALITIES: In addition to financial equality, SDG initiatives in Mongolia and abroad – for the last 6+ years we’ve been tracking, mapping, countering, etc., a variety of “inequalities” from Asia to EU to mitigate home-grown issues across multiple countries/internet-platforms.
- SDG 11 – SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES: GERtoGER meshes “kinetic” and “static” supply chains into itineraries, products, etc., towards advancing social economic development. GERtoGER’s founder has spent 23+ years assisting Mongolia through its post-Soviet transitional development (tourism, meat, cashmere) – first USAID funded “The Competitiveness Initiative”.
- SDG 12 – RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION: 1) travelers are trained on “subsistence nomadic lifestyles, traditions, history, etc.” 2) nomadic tribes are provided with cashmere-alternatives owing to overgrazing issues (sharp increase in goat numbers); sustainable eco-incomes vs. land degradation incomes that impacts nomadism, livestock, GDPs, nature/environment.
- SDG 13 – CLIMATE ACTION: We have conducted Nomad Relief Efforts during climatic disasters; films, media pieces, awareness campaigns, etc. 2) We established networks ‘that can’ monitor trends (goats, desertification, watershed situations, weather impacts on land degradation, etc.)
- SDG 14 – LIFE BELOW WATER: Via workshops all herder/travelers are trained about the importance of water resources in relation to mitigating waste related issues, etc. Though Mongolia may not have oceans – the quality of Mongolia’s watersheds are vital to nomadic populations throughout the country. Mr. Fromer assisted USAID Gobi Initiative’s “Watershed Monitoring” program works as the quality of the watersheds directly impacts Mongolia’s GDPs (cashmere, meat, tourism) as nomadic families are the core “node” of all three industries.
- SDG 15 – LIFE ON LAND: Via workshops herders/travelers are trained about the importance of land resources in relation to mitigating waste related issues, watershed impacts on land quality, weather/climatic degradation of land, etc., in addition to serious issues pertaining to overgrazing, etc., GER to GER has established nomadic networks ‘that can’ monitor such remote concerns (GDP concerns).
- SDG 16 – PEACE, JUSTICE, AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS: We promote the UN’s UDHRs within Mongolia, social media, etc. Mr. Fromer encourages all countries to “maintain the peace” via making the general public aware of social-issues (extremists, oppression OPS, racial hate CRIMES, etc.) that may indeed hinder social economic development.
- SDG 17 – PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS: Via social media networks (Facebooking, Twitter, etc.), partners, donors, etc., we proactively expand our initiatives.
- “Responsible-Tours.org“ established by GER to GER and the Founder, this new Initiative is being launched by “The Global Practitioners” to assist International CBTs, CSR Initiatives, alternative community travel networks and Geotourism Initiatives
- “LastLifeLine.org“ under the GERtoGER Foundation this new Initiative aims to match Global Issues of the aforementioned “MDGs/SDGs” that require exposure to better link with like-minded organizations.
Responsible Travel Notes:
* All Humanitarian Trips and Homestays are 100% “Reality Trips” that are managed and operated by locals and nomadic families; GER to GER Office operates ONLY AS A Humanitarian “Travel Agent” for communities (non-tour operator).
* GER to GER humanitarian trips is about “Reality” – real families, real lifestyles, real situation, etc. (who are the Mongols? And not about our expectations).
* GER to GER humanitarian trips are not an amusement park experience – it’s about awareness/respecting nomadic lifestyle and learning “their ways” (not ours), etc.
* GER to GER is an opportunity for people to learn how to integrate within other cultures vs. other cultures catering to our international norms and standards that we have become overly accustomed too and demand others to adhere too (like paid entertainment slaves).
* GER to GER has generated over a Million USD towards Mongolia’s social economic development via supply-chain synergies and provides over 80% of its revenues toward rural nomadic families that greatly need this alternative income source.
Mr. Fromer the Skilled Pilot vs. the Dishonest Winds of “Scams” on Trip Advisor
TRUTH vs. FICTION
There is more fiction on Trip Advisor than CONTRACTED clients.
From 2010 (1000s of travelers) – 8 Client Issues: 4 clients with bad luck – 4 clients caught in scams to defraud Nomadic Families (Humanitarian Trips)
INDEED after Italy fining Trip Advisor 500,000 Euros for fake defamatory reviews – Trip Advisor’s Community Supervisor “Jane” seems to be trying her best to ‘spin-doctor’ the situation as Trip Advisor is legally liable for “YEARS” of fake defamatory reviews/anti-trust, etc., so she decided to 1) not review the facts/evidence 2) try to assign the blame onto the victimized company/staff, hence, which was captured by her antitrust/corporate fraud email of stating:
“We will not review any of the content in your last email, we will not read your web-pages, we will not take actions…”
HENCE, Trip Advisor is allowing Public Defamation without burden of proof for years/didn’t take immediate actions to rectify it which is Corporate Fraud/Anti-Trust.
As of today Trip Advisor’s platform manipulations have created countless issues for our credibility in addition to inciting hate-crimes against GER to GER and its staff both within the territory of Mongolia and abroad by allowing the fake defamatory reviews to continue with Trip Advisor’s Brand/Logo associated with it despite countless correspondences (as they don’t desire to review the facts/evidence nor verify user accounts and have no “burden of proof” to back public-defamations on Trip Advisor, etc., equals “operational negligence, corporate fraud/antitrust”). For the past few years GER to GER has been actively logging attempted “hacks” against its websites – today the number of daily hack-attempts averages from 300 to 600+ attempted hacks worldwide – averaging around 10,000 hacks per month… The term “GER to GER” isn’t common within any language but the “Mongolian Language”, hence these are indeed “intentional/coordinated targeted attacks” at GER to GER’s operations. Since Mr. Fromer going public with his investigative findings to curb any potential violence incited by “Trip Advisor’s Platform’s Negligence” (there are no other forums being SEO-hijacked on Google Search Engine Results that are promoting fake defamatory reviews – today only Trip Advisor) the online attacks have been increasing while physical stalkings are decreasing. What this means is after years of hate-crimes incited by Trip Advisor’s Platform, the locals are comprehending the facts/evidence that Trip Advisor doesn’t want to read thus locals are decreasing the stalkings/harassments, however, the online coordinated-threat is still very real/active as it’s associated with Trip Advisor’s Platform frauds, trolls, scammers, etc., that are based in other countries… These types of negligent-manipulations are indeed an “incredible oversight” of Trip Advisor that should have been addressed long ago when well established people/businesses like us bring-forth the investigative findings/facts/evidence rather than being intentionally suppressed by Trip Advisor.
LET ME SHARE A COUPLE EMAILS
It’s 100% clear that Jane has no interests in following Trip Advisor’s Policies/Guidelines nor the Law but rather participating (by not taking corrective actions)/allowing the public defamation/harassment with the intent to social-economically hurt me (Mr. Zanjan Fromer)… Her motives… like many others is the intentionally incorrect profiling of me – intentionally trying to push forward unethical victimization agendas against me (to protect both Trip Advisor and her names – try to force a “fake situation” into become a “reality”).
In my previous emails, of which are exceptionally diplomatic, it clearly states the situations with supportive evidence, documents, link, etc. Jane’s goal is to “windmill” this as long as possible to inflict the GREATEST AMOUNT OF DAMAGES to my credibility; but it went beyond this – I spent YEARS countering extremists who definitely desired physical violence/inflict countless economic damages to me/GER to GER works in Mongolia and abroad, etc.
Today Trip Advisor is allowing extreme oversight to happen by not conforming to international laws to protect people and businesses from operational negligences (they don’t back defamation with “burden of proof”, etc.) that allow unethical competitors, trolls and scammers to manipulate these platforms. A common tactic to rapidly damage “credibility” is to manipulate these platforms’ Super Authoritative Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Powers to unethically push-up dishonest reviews to the top pages/results on famous Search Engines like Google, etc.; anyone can create fake accounts via fake gmail accounts (no user verifications). This unethical tactic suppresses all real reviews, blogs, articles, videos, social medial posts, etc., to the last results on page 1 and onwards to page 2 and 3 of search engine results; “victimized company’s name” would produce “trashy reviews” which confuses international markets – travelers, businesses, etc.
GER to GER – TripAdvisor Support (TripAdvisor Support)
Ok Jane, then how about this…
In accordance with Trip Advisor’s Guidelines – I’m formally requesting Trip Advisor to remove/delete any/all “legally unverified/unsupportive” defamatory reviews where my “personal name” Zanjan Fromer is unlawfully used as this is Malicious Harassment/Public Defamation without evidence, burden of proof, etc., on a public forum owned by Trip Advisor Company. Non-removal/non-compliance to this request verifies that you Jane are pursuing to support/commit unlawful public defamation crimes against me, Me – Mr. Zanjan Fromer, without cause, burden of proof, etc.
That’s within Trip Advisor’s policy.
I’m kindly awaiting your response and acknowledgement of my formal request.

Just as I stated above – Jane has no interest to resolve matters via diplomatic emails that contains evidence, contracts, terms & conditions, etc., it’s her intent to inflict the greatest amount of damage by ‘windmilling’ the reconciliation process for her hidden agendas… which is the definition of “Corporate Fraud” and “Antitrust”.
It’s common practice to immediately correct/protect victims especially when the victim (me) is providing the evidence… But in Jane’s situation, she doesn’t even want to review the evidences – Responsible Companies rectify the matter immediately unless they are apart of the crime and a hidden agenda to damage the credibility of the victim exists. With Trip Advisor’s recent issues pertaining to Antitrust court matters and USA Federal Investigation (FTC) Issues – I think it’s clear that Trip Advisor still hasn’t rectify their internal issues as of yet as I am still waiting…
GER to GER Mongolia COMBATs TROLLs & SCAMMERS
To Ensure Overseas Health/Safety of Locals and International Travelers
IN LINE WITH THE UNITED NATIONS SDG 8 “DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH”: GER to GER Mongolia has publicly released evidence/findings to counter fake/fraudulent reviews about GER to GER on Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet and the TROLLs/Scammers that propagate it.
TRAVELER REVIEWS ARE LIKE CULTURAL TRANSLATORS THAT ONLINE PEOPLE RELY ON
*** REMEMBER GOOD TRANSLATORS AND BAD ONES LIKE “HELEN THE TRANSLATOR” OR “TABITHA ROMAN” WHO ARE SCAMMERS/TROLLS EXIST ***
Tabitha Roman “JugglingTam” and Robbie Frederick of “Fresh Coffee Stains” Star as “Helen The Translator”
LONELY PLANET DELETES SCAMS
LONELY PLANET DELETES
Fresh Coffee Stains
“HIRED GUN CON”
*** “FRESH COFFEE STAINS” OPERATED BY TABITHA ROMAN AND ROBBIE FREDERICK IS A CON THAT TARGETS KNOWN INDUSTRY COMPETITORS (FOR UNETHICAL SEO ADVANTAGES ON GOOGLE BY TAGGING THE TARGETED COMPANY’S NAME TO HER BLOG – INTENTIONAL NEGATIVE CAMPAIGNING; EVERY BLOGGER’S DREAM “TO GET KNOWN”) – MS. ROMAN “SEEKS HIRED WORKS OR BENEFITS”, MS. ROMAN KNOWS “NO SHAME” – SHE’LL WRITE NEGATIVE PR BLOGS AGAINST INDUSTRY TARGETS AND/OR “EXTREMELY BIAS REVIEWS” TOWARDS THE COMPANY THAT “DIRECTLY HIRED HER OR PROVIDED HER WITH GREAT DISCOUNTS”… WHICH MAKES HER 1) UNETHICALLY KNOWN AS SHE BUILDS NOTHING/MAKES NOTHING – SHE UNETHICALLY DESTROYS FOR 2) MONEY 3) HENCE SHE IS A CON-ARTIST 4) THAT IS 100% FOR HIRE HENCE SHE IS AN UNTRUSTWORTHY SOURCE OF INFO ***
In reality – this is a lesson learned for GER to GER as it fortifies our “confirmations” that we must be extra careful as to whom to send out on our Humanitarian Expeditions with Nomadic Families. Just because “they say” that they can successfully translate situational environs as a Humanitarian AND NOT as a tourist doesn’t mean that they really can or more importantly “THAT THEY WILL” (they knew they were going on a 100% non-touristic humanitarian trip but they treated the people, the experience, the cultural opportunities, etc., like displeased Trip Advisor city tourists criticising a “packaged tourist trip” at a resort/entertainment park). Defrauding nomadic families from critical incomes that they need is all sorts of wrong. The aforementioned comic video is 100% accurate and how I feel as the gentleman who trusted a woman who said they could properly translate situational environs like a “humanitarian” after receiving some training – of which I might add… she wasn’t very kind nor willing to learn during the trainings as she was an “educational elitess” with 8 years in China and didn’t want to listen nor learn from an International Field Specialist with 23+ years of overseas international development expertise (more info: www.Zanjan-Fromer.com). When placed into nomadic environs both Robbie and Tabitha were a lot like “Helen the Translator” in the above clip… and Yes from 1000s of successes I failed and “I’m the idiot” that trusted that I could train them enough/send them out into the field with GER to GER (granted I failed less than 1% but the amount of time investment to correct their nonsense feels like decades). Hence… we have started to take more serious consideration as to whom we will send out from now on – GER to GER doesn’t desire to send out anymore people like “Helen the Translator” onto our Nomadic Families’ Humanitarian Trips.
Upon being contacted by Mr. Zanjan Fromer, the very next day LONELY PLANET DELETES “JugglingTam”/ “Fresh Coffee Stains” SCAM.
“Ger to Ger: Goat’s milk and stinky cheese in Mongolia’s Gobi desert …”
Lonely Planet DELETES scammer’s “Warning: Do NOT do Ger to Ger program – Lonely Planet” Post that was authored by “Fresh Coffee Stains” that shows up on Google Search Results; thank you! It will take about a few weeks for the link to disappear. Owing to GERtoGER’s strong positive image (our life’s works as humanitarians, changemakers, social entrepreneurs, explorers, filmmakers, etc.) we get scammers/disruptor/trolls that unethically try to cash-in and steal the Nomadic families’ market. GER to GER humanitarian trips with rural nomadic families are not “tourist trips” but rather “reality trips” that showcase the diversity of realities that nomadic families face – a rare opportunity to immerse oneself into foreign realities. Unfortunately people like Tabetha Roman and Robbie Federick DO NOT properly capture those realities but would rather showcase a “city tourist mentality” both in their writing and video blogs. I’ll be the first to admit that ALL VEHICLES in Mongolia are prone to technical difficulties (from time to time) – there is NOT ONE DRIVER who can claim they haven’t had some sort of issue in the outback once and awhile – that’s why we have backup plans, other locals that can be contacted to assist, etc. When you work in community development – locals support locals – it may require 20 minutes to an hour of patience out in the desert but they always make sure you get to your point… something among 100s of other items that both Ms. Roman and Mr. Frederick failed to mention both in their blogs and videos during their 20 minutes of paranoia; I see it as a success as locals were contacted and they successfully assisted them so they could make it to their bus.
NOTE: Most of the time these online disruptors support greedy companies via defrauding nomadic children’s money that the parents earn and use for their child’s or children’s health, medication, educations, clothing and even school supplies, etc. These unethical approaches are generally very biasly made that don’t properly show all the realities which defrauds the rural Nomadic families from learning how to serve the tourism industry (which takes time) rather than developing their own ethics, strong unique brands and markets.
If it makes you quickly emotional; angry, sad, hateful, etc. – it’s most likely intentionally SEEDED “fake” or “dishonest” news
“I’ll be the first to state it – unethical people SUCK! It’s these people that take something uniquely humbling and wonderful as remote nomadic families opening their homes/families/cultural adventures to a*hole scammers/con-artists who always finds a way to make it awful for us humanitarians/social entrepreneurs and the nomadic families; these “self-righteous scammers/con-artists” all do the same things/their posts are generally the same template format – what’s their goal – they desire to steal from Nomadic Families and get free trips via cons, scams, defrauds, misinformation, etc., via disruptions/defraud/market manipulations. ONCE THEY GET CAUGHT – they all run to the same place and do the same thing – they go to the same Trip Advisor Thread and make themselves look innocent – scammers/con-artists always stay together; have you ever caught a bunch of people stealing/cheating at a shopping store and watch them lie to escape, etc? They always team up and say ‘it wasn’t me – it was him or her’ and they have a lots of BS excuses to ignore the shop’s terms/conditions/13 Levels of Verifications/disclaimers/contracts.”
Dishonest reviews negatively impacts 100s of nomadic families’ incomes across the country that they use towards health/educational care for nomadic children, medical visits for pregnant women, medication and life-saving surgeries, etc., and it also negatively influences the delicate rural social economic supply chains and much more. Dishonest reviews also “jades” the locals who care while inflaming extremists, bullies, stalkers, unethical special interest groups, etc., into unethical actions against foreigners that are tourists and workers within a foreign country.
Can anyone calculate the negative social economic impacts that this type of nonsense has on a country’s GDP?
This is one of 1000s of case studies – world wide – now calculate globally the negative impact on overall GDPs…
“So YES, I, Mr. Fromer, will say it – if you are an unethical scammer, competitor, troller, disruptor, etc., it’s you who SUCKS.”
100% Transparency – Nothing to Hide
I’M 100% BACON LOVING ‘HETEROSEXUAL’ ALASKAN USA MAN not some USA/Mongol Snowflake, etc., as some fake Trip Advisor reviews have stated – Just look at me… Do I look Mongol? Do I look, work, operate, train like a Snowflake? Nope, LOL!
100% ALL overly emotionally charged/false defamatory reviews are generally failed scams designed to hurt GER to GER’s Humanitarian Trips Operated by Locals; I, the Founder, became the target of public defamation on Trip Advisor/Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree as I stood up and gave my voice to the voiceless locals when others wouldn’t. That seriously pissed off the scammers, frauds, etc., hence, I’m famously beloved by Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree as I don’t backdown to bullies – LOL!
Sorry Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet, no disrespect intended , however 1) I DIDN’T throw the first stone 2) In fact, it’s only after years of a HANDFUL of scammers/trolls/disruptors (less than 1%) unethically throwing stones that it became OVERLY clear that your platforms had sided with the scammers/bullies/trolls without verifications, facts, evidence, burden of proof, etc. (and not with the majority of satisfied clients 95%+), and are allowing the unethical “public shaming of me” by known scammers/trolls that desire to force me into silence/out of my humanitarian works. I’m sorry but this is where “I draw the line” as that strategy just won’t work with me; when it’s a good ethical fight – I thrive on adversity/overcoming unethical situations. Alaskan Tlingits have a righteous history of being protectors, taking on Goliaths and winning; I’m Alaskan Tlingit – you can find more about me via www.Zanjan-Fromer.com
