|A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.|
Duane Crawford McGaw
|"Duane McGaw was a principal of the onshore/offshore-based Argentum Capital Group, whose litigation funding scheme was exposed as a fraud by OffshoreAlert on February 18th, 2014, quickly causing its collapse.|
Investors were offered double-digit annual "fixed returns" as high as 15%, with both returns and principal purportedly "protected" by insurance policies and other financial safety nets to ensure payment even if funded lawsuits were unsuccessful. They were shown charts indicating that all 20 asset classes issued from April, 2010 to July, 2013 had achieved substantial total returns, ranging from 27% in 27 months to 89% in two years. It was all lies"
McGaw publicly resurfaced on July 6th, 2015, when a Vancouver-based food and culture magazine published an article about a new Japanese restaurant called 'Q Shi Q' that McGaw, as owner, was planning to open. OffshoreAlert blogged about this development on July 14th, 2015 and also tipped off liquidators that there was a potentially valuable asset just waiting to be seized on behalf of McGaw's many victims.
|... McGaw showed how easy it is to spend other people's money when he filed a meaningless defamation lawsuit against OffshoreAlert and its owner, David Marchant, at the Supreme Court of British Columbia on August 13th, 2015, alleging that claims he is a fraudster are 'false and malicious'"

|"As a result of the publication of the Defamatory Statements, Mr. McGaw has suffered and will continue to suffer serious damage to his reputation and business prospects," stated McGaw's attorney, David Wotherspoon, in the complaint. Let's hope so. That's sort of the point|
As we told Wotherspoon: "If your client is embarrassed by visitors to OffshoreAlert's web-site knowing that he received millions of dollars by helping to swindle the elderly and others in a crude investment fraud, then he shouldn't have participated in it. Clearly, the truth hurts."
