Gay Airlines - The Fallout

We wrote about the whole Gay Airlines “scam” as soon as it came to light at the end of August. Today I met with  one of several unfortunate victims. He was hired by “Richard Essen” who we now know is Eduard Richard Streur, to work for the company that never actually existed. Attracted by a promised excellent salary and benefits package, he worked for six weeks without pay, and was instructed to give up his previous job to concentrate full time on the new position. Along with others, he was taken on by the company to look after all the entertainment for the planned influx of gay visitors being brought to the island on three privately chartered aircraft from the mainland of Europe. This included setting up a house band, and they even had conversations with Holly Johnson’s manager in the hope of landing him as the special celebrity entertainer for their arrival.

He told me: “It all seemed so plausible at the beginning, and it was fabulous to be part of an exciting new venture, with a responsible job. Richard gave the appearance of being seriously rich, and talked often about moving €20 Million from Holland to a bank account here to fund everything.”

Several other people had been taken in similarly.  read more »
