Barbados Government And News Media Happy To Profit From Opera Interactive Consumer Fraud

How To Make A Fortune Defrauding Bajans

Hey folks… I have an idea on how to make a fortune from those stupid Bajans. All we have to do is to let the government and the media take a cut of the profits and we won’t have to worry about any government intervention or media exposure.

Let’s start a phony contest and charge everyone a dollar or two to enter the contest by using their mobile phones. Never any winners – just pure profit.

And like we said… spread the profits around to the government with taxes and bribes, and to the newspapers and television with lots of advertising revenues – and we can run this scam forever.

Or at least until regular folks catch on to what we’re doing.

Hmmm…. this Adrian Loveridge character is causing trouble for us. He sent another letter asking the government to do something about the ongoing fraud.

Loveridge is spoiling everything. Same goes for Barbados Underground.

Oh well… we’ve made millions so far!

Here’s the letter from Loveridge to the government of Barbados asking them to do something. I hope he doesn’t really expect the government to give up all that revenue from those poor, dumb Bajans!

re: Opera Interactive (Barbados) Ltd case # 3/12/4 (648)

In your written response dated 14th November 2007 to my concerns emailed on 29th September 2007, you gave a number of assurances that this company had been instructed to comply with Fair Trading Commission requirements.

These included that the company ‘Clearly state in its advertisement that Opera Interactive (Barbados) Limited is the operator of the competition’ and Additionally, Opera Interactive (Barbados) Limited has confirmed that the names of the winners of its competition will be published’.

Appearing today ( 1st December 2007 – Saturday Sun) is half page colour ‘ad’ (page 36) Barbados Lucky Numbers, which states the ‘winning number: 0083526’ and there is no mention of the operators of the competition, ie: Opera Interactive (Barbados) Limited.

This is the same ‘winning number’ that has been displayed throughout the duration of the competition and to date I have not seen any list of ‘winners’ in the media.

Bearing in mind the parent of this company, Opera Telecom, has been found guilty in no less than 21 cases which breached the rules of regulatory bodies in the United Kingdom, it appears the assurances given to the FTC are meaningless.

I would ask you in the interests of Barbadian consumers that urgent action is taken against this company.

Thank You.

“Free… At Last” – Jamaican Play Tells Story Of Notorious Barbados Drug Dealer Wayne Weeks

A Changed Life

Auntie Moses is always telling us that you can say whatever doubts you want about Jesus – but you can never argue against the evidence of changed lives that happens when Jesus makes his mark.

I (Robert) remain unconvinced about God and Jesus, but I won’t argue against Auntie when she talks about the changed lives that seem to happen when a person decides that Jesus is important. As Mr. Gump would state: that is all I’ll say about that for now.

Here is a play about the changed life of the notorious Barbados drug dealer, Wayne Weeks…

“Free… At Last” Opens

Billed as a powerful Christian play, Free … At Last opened last night at the Life of Jamaica (LOJ) Auditorium, in New Kingston.

Free … At Last is the story of Barbados-born Wayne Weeks, who was a notorious drug dealer in the United States.

Weeks had built an empire selling drugs, earning up to US$9,000 in 15 minutes. He had hurt and abused many women (he stopped counting at 200!), was involved in voodoo and witchcraft against others, lied, stole and cheated to get ahead, and contracted hit men to kill his rivals and enemies. For his crimes, he received 60 years. But he was saved by the Word.

Weeks’ descent into the drug world is an all-too-familiar story of rejection. At 16 years old, he had become a Christian, and would later say it was for all the wrong reasons – he became a convert because of a girl he liked. After her parents discovered that they were having sex, they forbade Weeks and the young girl to see each other, and even threatened his life.

Weeks never forgave the girl and her family, who were also Christians, and their lack of forgiveness was the catalyst that propelled him into a life of hate – so much hate that Wayne set out to hurt not just every Christian female but every woman who would have the misfortune to cross his path. Within a year, Weeks would become a full-fledged drug dealer…
