Michele Gumm long story short, and very hard to still believe, my husband and I were with the Mt. Brooke kids and Natalee the week she turned up missing...we had the unfortunate pleasure to have had a brief encounter with The Kalpoe Boys and VanDersloot at Carlos and Charlies...when Robing turned up missing it all kinda hit home..it's like what the hell is wrong with these idiots in Aruba? I would love to go back there because the island was beautiful, but that place scares the hell outta me..I hope there will be some justice for Robyn and her family..karma is a bitch Gary...ask VanDerSloot.

My husband and I were in Aruba last week and spent time with the girls on The DePalm tours snorkel/booze cruise. We saw Natalie later that night at Carlos and Charlies and we commented that she was up to partyubg that night because of the exhaustive day we had on the boat. When we saw her leave she left by herself. No one was with her but we did notice some local guys talking to her while she was in there. I do not know if this will help but my heart goes out to the family and I can not believe this has happened.I live 4000 miles away outside of Detroit, Michigan and I feel like it happened to somone I know having spent tome with them on the boat. I even have pictures of them.I will pray for her and her family. Sincerly John and Michele Gumm

Vicki Brissette Lawson Posted on Help Find Robyn Colson - Gardner : Missing in Aruba
6 hours ago ·
This is in response to the message I posted yesterday morning concerning the Robyn Gardner Foundation that was subsequently answered by Richard Forester. For reasons unknown, that thread was not viewable earlier today. It is now back up (several posts down), but rather than risk this response disappearing again, I’m starting a new thread instead.

Thanks for replying directly, Richard. I have no doubt that this whole situation has turned your life upside down. I agree that it is important that whoever is running this Foundation is committed and “all in” and it’s encouraging to hear that you’re turning things over to people that are.

That said, I mean no disrespect by being this blunt, but no, your reply did not address my questions and concerns sufficiently. I feel as though you only answered the questions about your role in the Foundation, along with the questions about the return of funds if 501(c)(3) status is denied and how funds will be spent should it be discovered that Robyn is dead. I thank you for that. However, I don’t believe you even addressed ANY of the others. In addition, your reply raises even more questions.

Regardless of who will be running the Foundation in the future, or how it will be run, the fact remains that for the past 5-6 months, the Robyn Gardner Foundation has been operating under it’s current structure. Thousands of dollars were collected and online solicitations for donations on Facebook continued up until Mid-March. All the while, the Foundation continued to bill itself as an organization awaiting 501(c)(3) approval from the IRS. The information on the Stayclassy site reflects this messaging TO THIS DAY.

So respectfully, I will ask these questions again as directly as I can:

1)   On the applications for 501(c)(3) status that was reportedly submitted to the IRS in November, what are the names of the Board of Directors listed?

2)   On the applications for 501(c)(3) status that was reportedly submitted to the IRS in November, what is the Foundation’s mission statement?

3)   On the applications for 501(c)(3) status that was reportedly submitted to the IRS in November, how was the section on “Conflict of Interest of Procurement” addressed?

4)   As the Executive Director of the Robyn Gardner Foundation are you willing to provide accounting and budgetary information about the organization? Again, this will be public information if 501(c)(3) designation is ultimately approved.

As far as additional questions raised by your reply, again, my apologies for being so blunt. Please clarify the following:

5)   You are now admitting, 5-6 months after announcing the formation of the Foundation, that you were unqualified (your word) to start it and run it. It’s understandable that “snap decisions” were made given the emotional toll that you experienced early on, but why did it take so long to come to this realization? Again, thousands of dollars have been collected and online solicitations continued well into March.

6)   Even if you were in over your head as you suggest, another recent post by this page’s new admin claims that a very well respected CPA from a Big 4 accounting firm with a specialty in non-profits has been “involved all along”. I assume this person is the Treasurer and a board member. Who is this person and are you saying that he did not assist in running the Foundation after all?

7)   You mention that the Foundation’s new leadership will re-apply for 501(c)(3) status. Why would they need to reapply if the application you submitted in November is still under review by the IRS?

8 )   You also mention a “3 to 6 month process in Maryland”. Early on, it was stated that the Foundation is already incorporated in MD as a non-profit, but was awaiting approval from the IRS for designation as a charitable organization (i.e. the Feds). It’s common knowledge that setting up a corporation in MD takes very little time, money or effort (thank you, Legalzoom.com). So what does the state of MD have to do with the Foundation’s FEDERAL tax-exempt status as a charitable organization?

Thank you.

Richard Forester I apologize for not answering sufficiently. I will when I have a chance. Currently I am at the hospital with my father who has been in the ICU for nearly 4 weeks. Today is also Robyn's birthday, so as you can maybe imagine, my plate is full right now. I don't mind the line of questions and I will certainly do my best (again) to answer your questions more thoroughly when I have a chance. Thanks Vicki

Help Find Robyn Colson - Gardner : Missing in Aruba Vicki...Richard will respond when he has time. Like everyone else on here, he has his own things to deal with and he is not on this page very often. In fact, from what I understand,he's dealing with some personal matters that are not related to anything that would be of anyone's business on Robyn's page. He has been very honest and forthcoming with you and you'll have to respect that and let him respond when he has the time. You will just have to be patient. Thanks

I've always wondered how Jenna was involved with Robyn...if she was a friend or if she was just a girl that posed for the pictures we've all seen of the two of them.

A great friend of Robyn's?  How much did she really know?

Feeling bad for Richard the most just doesn't impress me at all with her. 

IF the stories are all "messed up", WHY won't anyone straighten them out?

"Can't speak much about it" ?????  WHY NOT?

IF Robyn has been murdered, isn't the truth important?

The stories about the calls to police (multiple) for domestic disturbances between Richard and Robyn must be true, Richard admitted to two of them himself on Dr. Drew's show.

And even though much has been deleted, Richard's attacks, threats, and many slanderous comments on Facebook since Robyn's disappearance are well documented...as well as many lies.  I don't believe the guy is any different in his everyday life as he is behind the many Facebook profiles he posts behind.  I don't feel sorry for him, I feel sorry for Robyn.

Even though Robyn didn't actually meet Gary Giordano on Match.com as suggested in this article (they met on Adult Friend Finders), I still thought it was interesting.

The Newest Online Dating Gimmick
 
Watch the Video for Miss Travel
(Link and video posted after article)

MissTravel.com is the hot new online dating gimmick making it's way through the internet like photons through the sun's convection zone (yes, I watch PBS). Miss Travel boasts it successfully matches attractive women with professional men for the purpose of travel companionship. Hmmm,... sounds a lot like an escort service to me, but the site claims it is not. Hmmm,...

While investigating MissTravel.com I was freaked out not just because it's over-the-top ridiculousness, but because I learned that the owner of the site is Brandon Wade. I met Brandon Wade many years ago during the South Florida housing boom. At that time he was trying to develop a web presence in the mortgage industry. Brandon is from Singapore and he is very bright, highly educated and very driven on becoming wealthy. And I should include that he's more than a bit odd and not just in an Asian way. At that time, he was seeking my help launching his new online venture which was just another gimmicky lead generator for mortgage brokers. At first I thought he must have come from a big money family in Singapore, but then he spoke about how easy it is for him to obtain investment capital from banks in Singapore for investments in the US. I thought he was a kook (even by South Florida and Asian standards), I severed ties with him.

It doesn't surprise me that Brandon would come up with a cheesey gimmick and have the capital to build an expensive site like MissTravel.com. He has similar sites like whatsyourprice.com and seekingmillionaires.com.com, all of which are nothing more than loosely veiled escort services. I think Brandon is on his way to finding the wealth he was seeking, and he'll do so with 100% immunity from criminal involvement and public condemnation. Just as match.com was immune after the disappearance of Robyn Gardner while traveling with Gary Giordana in Aruba. Surprisingly, even as they are still searching for Robyn's body, many match.com profiles stress that seeking a travel companion is paramount.

How did this supposed ex-boyfriend have Richard's number to text him?

And WHY in the world would an ex-boyfriend of Robyn's text Richard?

Just doesn't make sense at all to me.   



Why?  Why?  Why?  Don't these people ask follow up questions?  Wouldn't you ask what he tested you about?  So many people here think of much better questions to ask and ask them in much greater detail, so if that occurred to me, why not someone who is trained to ask questions?  Next time he is interviewed, send a monkey in to do it.  Even if someone was not guilty of anything at all, they could get to the bottom of things quicker if they asked the right questions when they have the opportunity.

Thought I'd seen your face a few days ago, Robyn. 

Still think she looks strikingly like you.

It made me smile for a while thinking if that was you, that means you're alive and happy!

Probably just wishful thinking...but I'm still going to hope it's true.

Maybe not in the picture I saw, but somewhere...

Richard the coward, obviously can't take the heat.  I'm sure a lot of questions have been coming in from his "supporters" since the recent postings by others.

But I don't believe for a second that Richard the control freak has gone anywhere.  He has more facebook profiles than most people would ever have the nerve to try to have.  Just because he shut down one...doesn't mean that he wasn't already there running things under another one!  Richard and his many profiles has not been a secret for a very long time now.  He plays a lot of games (no not like Farmville, but of a devious nature) on Facebook.

And note, not one word about the money that has been donated.  He probably didn't even remember to mention that since he's probably already spent it keeping one, and trying to keep another judgment off his record!

Help Find Robyn Colson - Gardner : Missing in Aruba

7 hours ago

Okay everyone...I'm checking out for a while, maybe forever. I'm closing down my personal page this weekend and that will take me off of this page as well. Please always keep Robyn as the focus on this page....it's for her and support of her - NEVER forget that. I am not giving up my hopes that Robyn will return home or backing down to anyone, just getting on with my life and this is a step I must take. I have a dear friend (that will remain anonymous) that will keep this page for Robyn alive and going. Please nothing but love, light, positivity and respect for Robyn. There will be the assholes that come out, but please don't give them the satisfaction of a response and lowering yourselves to their level....we are better than them! Thank you SO MUCH everyone for being so supportive of Robyn and caring so much. I KNOW Robyn will be amazed. Also, please continue to keep Robyn's name out there - please continue to share her page. God bless you all ~ Richard

bbm  Of course he needs to take a break, he has spent so many years and years of his valuable time trying to find Robyn.  He needs to stop everything, everything but getting money from the use of her name.  Thank God Beth did not give up that quickly on Natalee.  Look at all Beth did and all the money that was spent trying to find Natalee, and still the Aruban authorities rolled in the welcome mat and shut up like a clam. 

I don't think he can collect enough money to do enough to even begin to find her with his attitude.  With his behavior, I don't think he has collected even enough to buy the frosted flakes needed to get the day started in the office of Aruba's finest.  Didn't I read $6,000.  Is there a certain amount he has to reach before he starts searching or does all the money go towards 'administrative expenses'?  If you are taking money or collecting money from someone, don't they have the right to know what your plans are, unless, of course, you don't want to give away your plans because you need the element of surprise, which does not seem to be the reason here. 

They say 'Donate or get off the page.'  Why are people even staying there?  There are other ways people can help, besides money, if they don't have it to give.  It appears, that is the only 'help' that is needed or should I say, wanted.  Wanted for what purpose?  What is his purpose for interjecting himself into her life at the point he did and then leaving at the point he did?  Leaving everything, except collecting money for undisclosed reasons, that is.  He has put reasons out there, but they are so generic and explain nothing.

And yet some people still believe in him - assuming that at least a couple of his supporters are actual humans and not his own creations .  Imagine what he could accomplish if he put all this effort into something truly good rather than this evil, scheming, thieving plot to fund himself. 

Exactly, and that which he cannot control, he destroys.

How did this supposed ex-boyfriend have Richard's number to text him?

Just doesn't make sense at all to me.

I agree.

Maybe that text was from Gary Giordano?

On the E! show "Death in Paradise" It was stated that Robyn was in an on again off again relationship with Gary while she was seeing Richard.  And Richard said he told Robyn she couldn't go on the cruise with Gary earlier in the summer...so who knows? 

Richard said he told her no, she was not going on a cruise with another man; and that Robyn had agreed with him...saying he was right. 

Why not if Richard really believed Gary was gay?

I still can't believe Richard gets on national television and says his relationship with Robyn was wonderful (and they were even looking at engagement rings)..."wonderful" doesn't include multiple calls to police for domestic disturbances in my book.  JMO

Wonder if Robyn hadn't disappeared and if she had married Richard if they were both going to live with his brother?  Since that's where Richard's been living since he was evicted eight months ago for not paying rent for months!  Some have even stated he was living in his jeep for a while. 

Maybe he was planning on Robyn paying for that new place to live he has also said they were looking for?

Was she supposed to buy her engagement ring too?

Remember, Robyn had recently lost her job.

If Richard hasn't even been able to get a place of his own in eight months, how was all of that supposed to happen?

 

In a recent communication I received regarding questions here at SM about why Robyn lost her job at the dental office...

From a reliable source: Robyn was an escort. She carried 2 phones at all times. One was personal the other for business. She was fired because the office found out about her side business and that she was making appointments most of the day for her escort service at the dental office.

I don't know if it's true or not, but sadly...it makes sense.

Help Find Robyn Colson - Gardner : Missing in Aruba There are a few admins and Richard isn't an active one. Don't even know if he looks here anymore. I hope he doesn't. He responded to u before, so I'm guessing when/if he looks at your questions (that are still there) he will again. I'm afraid you've lost perspective of what Robyns page is about. It's not Richard, he tried to do the right thing. That's it. Robyn and Richard are good friends of mine and that's all you need to know about that. I just ask that instead of attacking anyone, please keep it positive and about Robyn...we've all gone through and are still going through hell. Thank you

I posted the following to the other Help Find Robyn page. RF deleted it in less than an hour:

Richard, I have waited over a week for you to respond to the questions I asked about the foundation you started in Robyn’s name. The questions were very basic and should have required little to no time to answer. I simply asked you to disclose information that is REQUIRED on the IRS application for a charitable organization (501(c)(3)) that you claimed to have submitted. A legitimate organization would have taken the opportunity to clear up the misconceptions people have, but you chose to do nothing and the silence speaks volumes.

Unfortunately, your unwillingness to answer these basic questions has left me with no other option than to have me draw my own conclusions about the Robyn Gardner Foundation.

I firmly believe that most people are, by nature, good. People gravitated to this tragic situation, as I did, and felt a bond with Robyn. They honestly wanted to assist in any way they could. My suspicion is that you preyed upon these kind-hearted people like a vulture. You played on their emotions and deceived them into donating money to a “foundation” who’s mission was not to FIND ROBYN, but rather to FUND RICHARD.

If my suspicions are correct, then Richard Forester, I am amazed you can sleep at night. You clearly have no soul.

Public court records show that your ex-wife was awarded over $100K in judgments against you in December of 2010 for failing to pay child support, health care, etc. Is the money you collected being used for this???

Court records also show that you’re currently being sued for over $12K for failing to pay rent. It is rumored that you lied to your landlord about having cancer and you’re now living with your brother. Is the money you collected being used for this???

I, like so many others, initially bought into your BS. You played us all well but your true colors have shown. Interestingly, the saying “Karma is a bitch” is often used on this page. Funny how Karma works, huh? Now we know what you are all about. Your shady ways have finally caught up to you.

To the “admin” of this page (come one Richard, we all know it’s still you), I fully expect to be banned for this post, but don’t bother. Robyn will always be in my prayers, but I am leaving this page and will not return. My hope is that those who donated to this fraudulent “foundation” read this and understand the type of person they’re dealing with. Then I hope they take appropriate action by demanding a refund and/or pressing charges for fraud.

And to the rest of the RF followers, good luck. If you still think that this guy is who he says he is, it’s time to WAKE UP!

An ex-boyfriend of Robyn's supposedly sent a text to Richard...

How did this supposed ex-boyfriend have Richard's number to text him?

And WHY in the world would an ex-boyfriend of Robyn's text Richard?

Just doesn't make sense at all to me.   



Why?  Why?  Why?  Don't these people ask follow up questions?  Wouldn't you ask what he tested you about?  So many people here think of much better questions to ask and ask them in much greater detail, so if that occurred to me, why not someone who is trained to ask questions?  Next time he is interviewed, send a monkey in to do it.  Even if someone was not guilty of anything at all, they could get to the bottom of things quicker if they asked the right questions when they have the opportunity.

 



I agree.

Maybe that text was from Gary Giordano?

On the E! show "Death in Paradise" It was stated that Robyn was in an on again off again relationship with Gary while she was seeing Richard.  And Richard said he told Robyn she couldn't go on the cruise with Gary earlier in the summer...so who knows? 

Richard said he told her no, she was not going on a cruise with another man; and that Robyn had agreed with him...saying he was right. 

Why not if Richard really believed Gary was gay?

I still can't believe Richard gets on national television and says his relationship with Robyn was wonderful (and they were even looking at engagement rings)..."wonderful" doesn't include multiple calls to police for domestic disturbances in my book.  JMO

Wonder if Robyn hadn't disappeared and if she had married Richard if they were both going to live with his brother?  Since that's where Richard's been living since he was evicted eight months ago for not paying rent for months!  Some have even stated he was living in his jeep for a while. 

Maybe he was planning on Robyn paying for that new place to live he has also said they were looking for?

Was she supposed to buy her engagement ring too?

Remember, Robyn had recently lost her job.

If Richard hasn't even been able to get a place of his own in eight months, how was all of that supposed to happen?

 

In a recent communication I received regarding questions here at SM about why Robyn lost her job at the dental office...

From a reliable source: Robyn was an escort. She carried 2 phones at all times. One was personal the other for business. She was fired because the office found out about her side business and that she was making appointments most of the day for her escort service at the dental office.

I don't know if it's true or not, but sadly...it makes sense.

Richard and Robyn did have a wonderful relationship, as in full of wonder, like
He wondered where they were going to live if they had no money or jobs
He wondered how they could be called a couple if they had broken up
He wondered where he was going to get money for an engagement ring.
Etc.

He wasn't lying.

Dark Currents, book trailer video
Dark Currents is the title of my next novel. It’s a thriller set on my favorite island of Aruba. Here’s the video trailer for the book.
 ::snipping2::
A little scary, very intriguing, with enough twists to keep you reading to the very last page. San Nicolaas Police Chief Jules Calenda, who you met in my novels An Island Away and Under A Blue Flag figures in the story, but there’s a lot more to it than that. Suffice it to say, two people go snorkeling, one comes back, or did they? Dark Currents will be released on 26 June 2012. You can pre-order the paper version from Amazon.com or get the Kindle version on the 26th. Enjoy the story!

I agree with you Sister.

I doubt any proceeds will go to help find Robyn.

The author lives on Aruba part of the time. 

He saw an opportunity, and he took it imo.

I just hope Richard or Gary won't benefit in any way from it.
