Another family, another Sleepout, and another $15,000 rip-off by GNK.

This time it is a Wellington-based family who reportedly hired GNK to build a Sleepout for their holiday section in 2009. GNK reportedly took the money, laid some dodgy piles on site (all of which were uneven in height and insufficient in depth, just as he did at our house, in order to give the appearance of work being done – a grand charade), and then disappeared off the face of the earth, after missing every single build deadline GNK originally agreed to meet.

The GNKASS Tally (the estimated amount of money GNK has ripped off people over the last 30 years) now stands at $2.915 million (and counting).

I am in the process of assisting the family to file a formal “Notice of Claim” in the District Court against GNK.

Looks like I better settle in for a while, as I am picking that a queue is about to start forming behind my own claim served just a few days ago.

And now, we all know where GNK REALLY lives.

GOTCHA! GNK pleads guilty to two charges of breaching his Bankruptcy conditions (good riddance “NZ Sleepouts” & “NZ Kennels”).

On 18th June 2012 Mr King appeared for First Call in the Waitakere DC for two charges under the Insolvency Act 2006 being Managing a business whilst Bankrupt.

Mr King was self-represented and did not wish to speak to a duty solicitor.

The Crown solicitor advised the Court that Mr King had intimated that guilty pleas would be entered and sentencing could occur the same day.

The Crown handed up sentencing submissions which was prepared and along with the summary of facts and Mr King`s criminal conviction history.

The two charges were read to Mr King, who pleaded guilty to those and accepted the summary of facts. The Registrar advised that sentencing could not proceed.

Mr King was remanded at large to 30 July 2012 at 10:00am for sentencing before a Judge at the Waitakere District Court.

I cannot sufficiently communicate to readers just how immensely satisfying it was to watch GNK waddle up to the front of the Court-room, stand in the dock-appointed space in front of the Judge, and meekly plead “guilty” to both charges as listed above.

After all of GNK’s bluster and bullshit about how wonderful he is as a self-represented litigant; about all the “actions” he is taking against whoever and whomever; about what he is publishing and when he is publishing it; about what he “knows” about others and how he will “expose” them;  in the end GNK simply folded his tail between his legs, and bent over.

During the plea process, I paused often to think of the dozens of people who have been reportedly ripped off by GNK, and who could not be there in the Court-room to watch this wretch of a man face the consequences of his actions.

And yes, if you are now putting two and two together, you will have realised that the “public forum” in which I served GNK his “Notice of Claim” papers was in fact Court-room 2 at the Waitakere District Court, the one place where he couldn’t run from, as I served him PRIOR to his requirement to appear before the Judge, and the one place he couldn’t claim that he hadn’t received the Court papers, as he was loudly and firmly served by me in front of 20-plus witnesses, including a Court-Taker, four Lawyers, a policeman, and the public gallery – no wonder he was so furious with the situation, and with me – the “sewer rat” was trapped, and thus couldn’t head for one of his ready-made bolt-holes.

So, if any of the GNKASS Network is free to join me on Monday 30th July 2012 at 10am at the Waitakere District Court, 9 Ratanui St, Henderson, Auckland to watch GNK’s sentencing in the public gallery – I’m buying 🙂


GNK is running ANOTHER illegal business activity whilst a bankrupt!

Seriously, this is just becoming farcical.

While the Ministry of Economic Development work through the process of prosecuting GNK for running two illegal businesses whilst a bankrupt, I have just discovered ANOTHER business activity that he is active in – Check out the contact details on the website – it is Grant Kings home phone number in Helensville!

The legal system is now being openly mocked by GNK – and it will be up to the legal system to wipe the smile off GNK’s face.–97-14.htm

The horse ads link to “Tiger Equine”, a horse business.

How do I know that GNK is involved with “Tiger Equine”?

Simple – GNK’s daughter told me:

Looks like I got a “three for two” deal in my clean-out of GNK.

In my successful efforts to close down NZ Sleepouts and NZ Kennels, two businesses being illegally run by GNK, it seems that I have collected a third business along the way  -“Tiger Equine”, an equestrian business being run by Hayley Morgan, GNK’s young, young (very young) partner, and GNK.

Have a look at the website here and you will notice that there has been no activity, posts, or updates since January 5th, 2011.

Also note that the last remaining horses held by GNK (just two), are now for sale, and one has been for sale for some time.

I guess I should update my “companies I have put out of business who tried to rip me off” tally to 4?

No wonder GNK’s daughter was looking so aggrieved at me yesterday when I served GNK (Oh, did I not mention that they were together at the time? How remiss of me).

GNK’s daughter looked very presentable and professional, while GNK looked like a great big woolly and dishevelled “Santa” with a struggling goatee.

What struck me while I was observing them together was how GNK “ordered” his daughters movement, speech, and actions – from my perspective, I was watching a young woman firmly in the grip of an emotionally abusive man, a young woman who had absolutely no idea that she was being abused.

I have worked in Women’s Refuge environments before, and I have yet to see a better example of “grooming” than I saw yesterday – in my opinion, GNK’s daughter has been completely and utterly “captured” by her abuser.

And I would assume the same may be said for Hayley Morgan.

Hayley; Mr & Mrs Morgan: you are in the grip of a certified Sociopath:

What would be the most undesirable situation to experience, for readers of this website?

Would it be:

A: Being humiliated in front of your partner in a public forum?

B: Using your partner as a human shield in a public forum?

C: Getting your partner to fight your battles for you, because you were too scared to actually stand up for either yourself, or them?

D: Searching though your phone for photos, only to discover that the phone was in fact being utilised in “Video” mode?

E: Being caught on a webcam acting like a complete fruit-loop at your place of work?
