Great headline, totally false, but great!

It's just a small detail at the start of the news story, right? Not even 20 words, so maybe one shouldn't complain. But for integrity's sake, someone has to correct the record. So here goes:

Please, Gazette editors: issue a retraction for your latest story about Voyageur Foundation. The headline - which we fear might be the only part some readers read - is false.

Your headline:

Lawyer Richard DeVries was the intended target in a murder-for-hire plot by an angry investor of the Voyageur Foundation.

For the record:

- Mr.  Djokich is not a member of Voyageur Foundation.
- He has never had any dealings with Voyageur Foundation.
- Voyageur Foundation has no connection with any murder-for-hire plot!
- Voyageur Foundation does not have investors.
- Voyageur Foundation is an investor's club - not an investment.

The only link between Mr. Djokich and Voyageur Foundation is the fact that a Gazette reporter has decided to place the two names in the same "news" story.

This is not the first time the Gazette has created a connection to make a great, but false, headline. Earlier this year, the same reporter claimed a "link" between Voyageur Foundation and the ex president of Nicaragua, a connection that is not only untrue, but it is also damaging. The Gazette has yet to publish a correction to this story.

Notwithstanding an honorable mention for a journalism award for investigative reporting, a Gazette reporter continues to publish incorrect information.

The undisputed facts are:

1.  No member of Voyageur has ever invested a single penny in the Foundation.
2.  Voyageur Foundation has never invested any funds in Stoneset.
3.  Voyageur is not, nor has it ever been, a participant in any alleged Ponzi scheme.

Stronger Together

Thanks to the Voyageur members who have pledged their Security for Cost Deposits, recovery efforts are underway in Ecuador and Honduras.
We are now applying our win in Belize and are moving forward, with the hope that assets will be recovered and all member investment expectations will be realized.
We believe the former management of Merendon is counting on all authorities and creditors to give up on the arduous effort to collect in the countries where Merendon formerly operated. We will not give up as "we are stronger together."
Thanks to the dedicated effort of this investors club and its members thus far, we have the potential of making this recovery effort a success.
