Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
A brief item this week covers the sentencing of a forklift broker in the US who took upfront payments and then failed to deliver forklifts.
Co-incidentally, last week Forkliftaction.com News broke a story in its Australian section about a similar activity under way in that country. While international readers may have missed it, we were tipped off by angry buyers who had parted with cash but not received any goods from Rapid Lift in Brisbane. The man many dealt with there, Graeme Dillon, was already facing fraud charges from a previous business - and that had been reported in this newsletter.
Nonetheless, people continued to deal with the accused and to hand over payments.
Hopefully, our story will stop others falling for such tricks.
And, in that spirit, if readers anywhere in the world fall prey to fraudsters, please let us know so that we can investigate and alert others.
The Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Seminar makes its return next February 7-9, 2023, and timing couldn’t be better!
IntraLogisteX, the intralogistics show of the year, returns on 28th & 29th March 2023 at the NEC Birmingham.

Fact of the week

From 1912 to 1948, gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded for literature, architecture, sculpture, painting, and music as part of the modern Olympic Games. Art works were required to be inspired by athletic endeavors. After heated debate about their place in the games, the art events were eventually removed. The 151 medals awarded were officially stricken from the Olympic record.
