As of 4/6/12 Fred M. Sullivan is Director, President and Chief Executive Officer of Global Response Group. This is the same man who at this time last year was using the name Myron Sullivan 11. Using the same website he is again attempting to raise money through selling shares in Global Response Group even though it does not exist. Sullivan has been allowed to get away with his scam since the early 1990s according to research we found at the North Vancouver Provincial Court website. Records show at least 16 court cases, which are all listed on a previous ripoff report.
