Hedgies Trade Uppercuts in Hong Kong Fight Night

Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Steve "The Wizard of Wanchai" Taw, his
son Thomas "Tommy Gun" Taw, Andrea "Glynn-sanity" Glynn and
Danielle "Steely" Midalia talk about their participation as finalists
in the annual "Hedge Fund Fight Nite" taking place tonight in Hong
Kong. The event, organized by IronMonger Events Ltd., seeks to raise HK$1
million ($129,022) for Operation Smile, which funds surgery for children with
facial deformities, and Operation Breakthrough, which combats crime and
juvenile delinquency in low-income and immigrant communities. (Source:

You have no time to think, you just have to rely on your training and
what your corner men tell you, the creative manager at The Cat Street Gallery
said, red-faced and covered with sweat just minutes after the bout that had
bloodied her and her rivals noses. In some ways it was easier than training
-- as they say, train hard, fight easy.

The pair, 12 other pugilists, and 600 guests were greeted by bikini-clad
models and black-tie waiters bearing trays of beer and wine at the Indian
Recreation Club in Happy Valley. Festivities opened when four women in hooded
boxing robes stepped into the ring, stripped off to reveal red bikini tops and
hot pants, and began a choreographed dance routine under multicolored strobe

There were few signs of the financial industrys woes, as guests bid on
high-priced trips including fishing in Mongolia between bouts and courses of
fig, Iberico ham salad and roast beef. The event raised more than HK$500,000
($64,512) for charities that fund surgery for children with facial deformities,
and combat crime and juvenile delinquency in low- income and immigrant
communities, falling short of the HK$1 million goal set by organizer IronMonger
Events Ltd.

The financial industry has been taking its own punches amid shrinking
equity volumes. Bank of America Corp., BNP Paribas SA, Deutsche Bank AG,
Macquarie Group Ltd., Morgan Stanley, Nomura Holdings Inc., and UBS AG are all
shedding jobs.

The Tank

Anthony The Tank Carango, 40, who attended West Point and went on to man the turret of an M1 Abrams tank, defeated Craig El
Toro Barnish in the second round of the evening. He had more to celebrate than
victory: His second child was born less than two weeks earlier.

Its been tough the last week, trying to fit in twice a day training
with a newborn, Carango, an executive director at Nomura, said after the fight, brandishing a cigar, glass of wine,
gold medal and broad smile. He said his wife has been hugely supportive,
taking late night wake-up responsibilities the evening before the fight.

The 14 finalists trained at Jab Mixed Martial Arts Studio in the heart of the business district twice a week for five months. In
addition to the sessions of sparring, punching bag work, crunches and
rope-skipping, most trained four to five times a week, and in some cases twice
a day. The finalists were culled from 70 hopefuls and were paired off for seven
bouts of three two-minute rounds each.

No Knockouts

All the fights went the distance, with no knockouts. All seven bouts
were decided on points by the ring-side judges.

Each bout opened with a pre-taped video of the boxers talking about
their training and opponents. At the fights end, the referee raised the hand
of the victor when the tuxedo wearing announcer proclaimed a winner.

In between the matchups, models in Union Jack and Stars-
and-Stripes bikini tops mingled with bankers, while ski trips, art works and
bottles of wine were auctioned for charity.

The regions hedge funds have been staging their own fightback. The
Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Index returned 2.3 percent in September, the best
performer among five regional indexes, based on preliminary figures. The index
has returned 3.9 percent this year through September compared with the 4.3
percent advance by the global industry gauge.

Good Punch

Steve The Wizard of Wanchai Taw, the oldest competitor at age 53 in
the history of the event, lost to Blaire The Bear Crichton, an associate vice
president in business development atHSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA),
26 years his junior.

He got in one punch that was really good, said the sweat-soaked Taw, a
director at South Ocean Management Ltd., who said this will be his last round
in the ring. It doesnt really hurt because you have the gloves and the
padding, but all the time, its in the back of your mind.

Taw competed four years after his sons victory in the same charity
event. Thomas Taw, 27, who works in electronic trading at Macquarie, was
standing in his fathers corner during the fight.

Other fighters at the event included Barnish, co-founder of BAH
Partners, Ltd., Nicolas Boulay, a derivatives broker at Louis Capital Markets;
Adam Gazal, a managing partner at National Australia Bank Ltd.; Grant
Livingston, an executive director in convertible bonds at JPMorgan Chase &
Co.; Brad Moreland, a director in prime services at HSBC; Mark O Reilly, a
managing director at Astbury Marsden; George Radford, a consultant at property
investment company IP Global; Richard Rouse, an account manager at HSBC, and
Andrew Wylde, head of sales and operations at Hatstand Consulting, who sported
the nights bloodiest nose.

Standard tables of 12 cost HK$24,000 with the ringside version pulling in
HK$50,000. The event at Happy Valley wrapped up with the last bout just before
midnight, when the pugilists and many of their supporters then filed into taxis
to Lan Kwai Fong, the citys stretch of bars and restaurants in the business

This page will expose the false unfounded negative posts that competitors have placed around the Internet about us. We have no victims we scammed or frauded and there is noconnection with Foster

AUTHOR: Scam Fighter - (Australia)

This sort of thing happens to every business with a industry leading website. Quite common although some people give credence to such postings because they do not understand the process. If you read this you will learn about about how the dark side of the internet works.

About Our Website - Our website is the industry leader in the category. We have a Google PR6 rating as an authoritative web site. As a comparison is a PR6, is a PR6, is a PR6, which is American airlines is a PR5, is a PR6.

This should give you an idea of how powerful a PR6 website like ours is. We are not an ordinary web site. This high of a rating is given to large old established sites that provide a very positive reader experience with a lot of content. Scammers and con men never ever would put years and years into a website like this with tens of thousands of pages in different languages. They usually have 6-8 pages and their websites are usually not used after 3-4 months. The heat gets too great and they abandon it and start a new scam site. They never sit around answering the phone for seven years which is how long we have been around.

Alexa Rating - Another way to evaluate a site is to look at the Alexa rating. Our Alexa rating is approximately 130,000. This means that out of the over one billion websites in the world only 130,000 of those get more visitors than we do. Considering that we are a niche market web site that is impressive.

As the industry leader we get attacks from competitors from time to time. People who cannot build businesses the correct way, tend to attack the industry leaders. This is common to all internet websites that are the industry leaders.

In our case we write exposes on countries and practices that are no longer useful for asset protection and immigration. We expose those misrepresenting their products and services indirectly. Those selling such products and services from those countries will from time to time vent at us on the internet since they prefer to keep their clients in the dark. Again this is the fate an industry leader educating the public truthfully suffers.

We could stop right here but we will explain the way the forum posting scam works. Behind it is extortion and blackmail.

Forum Negative Posting Scams - Some less than reputable competitors have taken to posting false reports and accusations against us on several sites that are designed for people to post real or false allegations against online businesses they do not like. The owners of these sites do not care if the posts are real or not. We are happy to say that none of these allegations are based in fact, in other words there are no real scam victims out there. How could we stay in business for seven years and answer the phone live all this time. Fairly absurd yet it makes them feel good so they do it.

Experienced internet users disregard this sort of posting as just slanderous attacks with no factual basis of anything other than anonymous posting. Others fall prey to these sort of sites, think the posts could be real and ask us about the posts. We explain that anyone can say anything about anyone on these sites. The forums and posting places verify nothing ever. They do not care what gets posted. Of course reputable forums do not allow pointless attacks aimed at people or businesses. The places that do allow the slander are actually running a scam themselves in the form of extortion and blackmail which I will explain shortly.

The way the anonymous posters lend credibility to their posts is by using a few user names on the site or forum. They use proxy servers so each post comes in from a different IP address. Then they act like a judge and jury convicting their victim's business. The victim may not even know about this posting for many months or years. Generally the business will not respond to such posts.

Some malicious posters might even make a screen name impersonating the victim business to further throw mud on them. Another trick is the slanderer will go and post on a few forums cross linking the posts to each other. This makes the reader think that some really big scam is being exposed. The thing is that nothing is real. It is all anonymous forum posts. This is the virtual world and nothing needs to be based on fact. People say what they want true or false. To show you how gullible people are about this we can look to the penny stocks. 

Years ago people would go and post on forums that some penny stocks were about to go up in price giving some reasons. Then people would buy the stocks driving the price up at which time the posters would sell and then the prices would soon drop. The SEC made this a crime. Today very few people believe everything they read online knowing that anyone can say anything about anyone.  

False claims of being a Scam-

Some have fabricated completely untrue incidents where there never ever was such a person who was a client. The whole thing was made up from the get go.

Other have posted all sorts of nonsense. They claim we are people who we are not. They say we moved from one country due to having to leave. If you were wanted in one country going to another openly is not going to accomplish anything. Pure unadulterated lies.

Others say people are looking for the firm yet here we are answering the phone daily. And on it goes the list never ending.

Scam Accusations The way this works is the competitor or professional poster who barely writes English posts on a site that specializes in scam, fraud or disgruntled customer posts. Not one of these places ever verifies a single post ever, for any reason. They do not care. They claim fraud, scam, whatever. The idea is to get the business or personal victim to pay money to the forum or website containing the post to have the post removed. These sites charge the victim money to counter post or even have the post removed. That is how they make their money. If you contact a reputable webmaster about such posts they generally remove them within hours. The crooked forums leave them up hoping you will pay them money to take them down. The owners of such sites have been criminally indicted for this. If one posts there they have to fill out an information form and who knows what they do with this information.

What Can be Done About These Extortion Scam Sites They are hard to fight. The owners names are well hidden. Their locations are well hidden. They have loads of better business bureau complaints which never get answered. It is hard to take them down in US courts, not impossible just hard. 

What can be done is one can take them down in non USA courts. You can even get them criminally prosecuted in non USA courts for fraud, extortion and blackmail.

Summary We did not get where we are by scamming people. None of these posts are real. If you are not engaged in internet commerce in a large way you might be confused by such posts and even think they are real and might be real. This is the intent and design of the posts. Anyone can go and anonymously post false complaints on unethical scam sites and forums. Nothing is verified. If you wish to treat such posts as real or maybe real in the face of a lack of any facts then do so. This is exactly what they crooks wanted. Fortunately today most are aware of these crooked web sites and disregard these posts lacking any verifiable factual information. Question is if you go to a competitor are they the evil posters? Good question isn't it.
