Articles appearing on this blog, regarding the three cases* involving the wealth management firms, and banks, involved in the Cayman Gang of Four $450m scandal, and dealing with the role played by the Ontario-based firm, Northland Wealth Management, Inc., in the losses sustained by Canadian investors, through theft, are not easily accessed on the Internet. The reason is that Northland is engaged in an aggressive campaign to flood the world wide web with so many "informational" websites, about the company, that negative news, reported on the web, is often shunted to the back pages of your google search.
This type of manipulation is being conducted by so-called reputation management companies, on behalf of Northland, though many people prefer to refer to them as hackers, as they are altering Internet search results. Internet fluff, websites which display the same general information about the company, are created, and when posted to the Internet, create a long list of entries, which result in real news being pushed to the rear of any Internet query. Some researchers have resorted to starting their queries in the middle, and not the beginning, the pages of search engine results, in the hope that the Internet garbage has been, more or less, bypassed, and the real content can now be reviewed.
When I see that a corporation has had dozens of nonsensical websites, with vanilla, or repetitive, content, on the first several pages of search results, I know that the company is trying, desperately, to hide the truth, and I intensify my search. If you want to see what Internet Spam actually looks like, type in "northland wealth management" into your favorite search engine, and check the results. Always place your query in quotes, though, so that you do not get irrelevant material; happy hunting.
