The Global Connection (TGC) (www.thegconline.com) is the latest fraudulent incarnation of International Merchandising Group (IMG), which was the latest fraudulent incarnation of World Traders Association (WTA) (www.wtaaffiliates.org).

If you've read the reports on this site, you've occasionally seen a "Richard Wells" post a "rebuttal" in which he claims NOT ONLY that very few of WTA/IMG/TGC's victims are dissatisfied BUT FURTHER that all of those were refunded in part or whole and thus satisfied. THIS IS A FLAGRANT LIE.

As I experienced in my case (and MANY others), once WTA/IMG/TGC has victimized you, they will first ignore your please for a refund.

If you make a real effort and they DO eventually contact you, they will have you dig up your signed contract and fax it to them (even though THEY keep the originals!), to buy them time.

Then, unlike their promises on many of these reports, they will refuse to refund any of your money, claiming that: they (the name under which you joined--in my case, WTA) are in a financial crunch; and that they've done nothing wrong. You WON'T get the refunds they promise in these posts.

How do they try to make this believable? They hide each fraudulent business by changing their name. Since they screwed me over, as WTA, they had to "become" IMG, leaving "WTA" to claim "financial crunch".

Now IMG's victims have reached such a number that these criminals have "become" The Global Connection! And so IMG is left to suffer its own "financial crunch", so they are very very sorry to their victims/affiliates, but of course there is no source for refunds!

Meanwhile the same people, in the same place, in their "Emporer's New Clothes", are currently filthy rich.

There Is NO "Financial Crunch" of any kind.

But there IS a whole new crop of victims to be plucked dry by "The Global Connection".
