OK, how about this, since you are not really paying attention on any of the other threads.
Gromicko took advantage of those people’s good will, and screwed them out of payment for product delivered.
*There was immediate contact between Nick Gromicko and both ad companies. I had nothing to do with any of it, other than making the original suggestion, which was to place a NACHI banner in each folder at half-price and obtain a discount for members’ ads placed in the same presentation folders. It was a good deal. *
*And it was conceived, because Gromicko was asking Canadian NACHI members to watch out for advertising opportunities for NACHI in Canada. We said “How about this?” and he said “Cool! Go for it.” The ad companies sent him samples/proofs, and he gave them the go ahead. This culminated in Nick taking thousands of dollars of advertising and not paying for it. *
*I guess they were silly enough to produce without a signature. They thought they could trust the honesty and integrity of the director of the association for the “best home inspectors in the world.” Wrong. Nick Gromicko siezed the opportunity to get something for nothing. *
But Gromicko did post samples on this board, and continue to accept the product for a long time before he finally admitted to welching on the payment. But he didn’t openly welch. He lied again, and claimed he never authorized the ad campaign. And then Gromicko deleted the posts and the webpage where he bragged up the folder ads. Evidence destroyed.
The ad companies were phoning me, looking for payment, because they had no other contact after Gromicko went back into hiding. That’s when he fed you guys the misinformation which started all this bickering two years ago… that and our refusal to treat Dave Bottoms any differently than anyone else.
That’s when Roy Cooke lied to you, about us.
Gromicko is laughing his head off, because he got lots of free advertising, and left us bickering among ourselves which takes the attention and heat off him.
So go suck an egg Raymond, because I don’t care anymore. I’m out of NACHI and you’re still there, wasting your time and unfortunate enough to have a liar like Cooke pretending to be your friend.
