Description


STEAL, CHEAT, AND LIE YOUR WAY TO THE TOP--a growing practice on both sides of the Atlantic that's costing consumers millions each year. Marine insurance is based on "Uberrimae Fidei" or utmost good faith but it hasn't worked out that way. Author Ed Geary closely examines the schemes of marine insurance fraud and conspiracy that involves not only boat owners and policy holders, but insurance brokers, and marine underwriters.
  • During his five year USCG training mission of the Venezuelan Coastguard Geary's disclosure of the Central Intelligence Agency's clandestine Operation Deep Six to destabilize the elected government of Venezuela and install Hugo Chavez as president put him in the cross-hairs of the Agency. Silencing him became an even greater priority when Geary exposed the CIA's theft of high value yachts used in idiotic schemes to smuggle of narcotics from Colombia to the United States.
  • "Gotcha" delves into the flawed business practices of The London Salvage Association that ultimately destroyed an organization that's been around before the reign of Queen Victoria and exposes the fraud and "trickle-down-corruption" that has tainted the Lloyd's Agency System.
  • After the melt-down of ENRON and WorldCom the cover-up of Arthur Andersen's fraudulent ship valuation conspiracy by the once reliable "Lloyd's List "in London challenges the imagination.
