If You Wish To Potentially Be Abused By A Company You Give #Business To Give #EmpireKred A Try.

Gareth Davies (@me_gareth) is a leader at Empire Avenue.

And Gareth Davies is not a very intelligent man, I don’t believe.

When I first met Gareth he was busy telling me he was a large and very sad man.  This was on the Empire Avenue general community forums.

This is his very nature.  To try to be intimidating.

Recognizing a predator right off, I resolved to keep track of ongoing events.

When I reported Gareth’s abuse to Empire Avenue support via zendesk, support refused to act.

It’s important to note what a Leader at Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred) is.

This response from alleged “leader” Keith Gill is typical of many people at Empire Avenue and their response.

(Keith Gill’s lack of caring for customers of Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred) and concern for their safety is appalling.)

So I reported Gareth and the other abusers from Empire Aveue to the CA DoJ.

After all, their abuse took place primarily on Twitter (other social media sites handled the abuse remarkably fast) and Twitter is in California.

And I am in California.

And they responded back on June 5, 2014, telling me to file with IC3.  So I did so.

Gareth simply continued his abuse on Twitter.

My reports to Twitter fell on deaf ears, so I reported to the San Francisco DA’s office.

The DA’s office twice opened files, and the CA DoJ opened an inquiry on 12/30/2014.

All of this because Empire Avenue was openly abusing their customers on Twitter (and elswhere) and Chris Sandys wanted that abuse “off the record.”


The predatorial acts of one man caused multiple law enforcement actions which Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred) has never acknowledged nor apologized for.

According to Ethel Newlin of the San Francisco District Attorney’s office blogging helped change the policies in place at Twitter.

Want to be abused by a company you’re a customer of?  Give EmpireKred a try.

Gareth Davies is still a leader there, despite being suspended for tweeting a customers private information, violent threats and being warned again for violent threats.

And, upon examination you can see he’s been abusing customers for years.

Customers still report being punished for asking for bug fixes. 

It seems with new ownership there has been no change in management philosophy.

Avoid EmpireKred until their management and leadership philosophy changes from one that allows abuse of their own customers.
