Who is doing the writing and is it legitimate?
As a fly on the wall I have witnessed the rise and fall of Gary Strong, and this is a unbiased account of what I have seen and heard through my Social networks. Everything written here is 100% credible, any unfounded rumours have been left out.
Gary Strong’s History
Gary Strong is from Essex near London in the UK. He worked in used car sales and later as a recruitment agent. Gary Strong moved to Australia with a girlfriend who left Gary when they arrived in Perth, approximately in 2010.
Gary was introduced to Oliver Wood, who at the time, ran a small web design business in Perth. At this point, Gary Strong had nothing to his name and was doing odd jobs for cash.
Oliver hired Gary as a salesman and the business grew from Gary’s sales.
Things started to come unstuck when Gary became increasingly desperate to make sales and began promising things to customers that were unachievable. Staff at the web company report that Gary Strong also had multiple relationships with clients which reflected badly on the company. Staff also suggest that Gary Strong had been accused of trying to defraud the company. These issues are believed to have ultimately lead to Gary Strong being dismissed from the business.
A police report filed by the owner of the web company and the subsequent investigations show that Gary Strong was the only suspect and accused of breaking into the home of his ex-employer. The large wooden front doors had been smashed down with brute force.
Gary’s finger prints were found inside the property and the alarm had been de-activated. According to the Police Report, only the owner of the property and Gary Strong knew the alarm code, clearly Gary Strong did not have keys.
Nothing was reported missing from the property, except Magistrate Court papers that related to Gary’s drink driving offence (which he was suspended from driving for). After initial questioning by WA Police Gary Strong fled the country to England a week later.
Stolen Client Database
The company reported to authorities that Gary Strong had stolen their client database and were concerned he was going to use the database for illegitimate purposes.
Several businesses in Perth were contacted by Gary Strong who was trying to sell the client database of the company he had recently been dismissed from. Many contacted his previous employer to inform them of Gary’s actions.
Its unclear whether Gary Strong received any money, but very clear Gary was soliciting the database in an effort to monetize and slander his previous employer. I was included in several bulk emails which had a range of allegations, including his previous employer was in financial difficulty, that the company’s staff had left and the business was being sued. The emails were clearly malicious and a poor attempt to instill fear into the company’s clients.
I spoke to the company and it was apparent that Gary Strong was clearly on a vindictive war path. The company stated they had lost a few clients, but were not phased by his actions. When I asked about the alleged law suits, they stated “the only clients we are having any Legal issues with, are Gary Strong’s clients, and we will work to resolve them”.
Gary Strong returns to Perth
In the last quarter of 2012, Gary Strong returned to Perth and it was not to be long before he would engage in more criminal activity. The commercial building of his previous employer was graffitied in the early hours of Sunday night on the 23rd of January 2013.
The only person to comment on the fact the building had been graffitied and also photograph the graffiti, was Gary Strong himself at 8.30am that day. The image below is taken from Gary Strong’s FaceBook account:

1 YEAR ON
1 year after Gary Strong was fired from Perth Web Design due to misconduct, Gary Strong continues to post derogatory information about his former employer, Oliver Wood.
The following fake Google+ account was shared with me yesterday. All evidence suggests that this was posted by Gary Strong.
Key Indicators include:
Gary Strong’s notoriously poor spelling – ‘Avaision’ instead of ‘Evasion’
The use of a domain name which does not belong to Oliver Wood but instead is a Directory for web design in Perth – perthwebdesign.com.au
Gary Strong even shared the link without realizing it was not the Perth Web Design website

A self explanatory FaceBook message from Gary Strong’s ex-girlfriend
Here is the text if you cannot read the above.
Gary moved back here in March & has literally drained the shit out of me!! He’s the most jealous & insecure man alive. He’s managed to make me feel like shit, my brother & dad want to kill him, but I’m my 28 years I’ve never met a crazier bloke. Broke up with him before I went to Barbados & took my mum. I don’t like Oliver but I can understand why he wanted to ruin Gary. The guy is a total user. I’m so glad he’s out of my life. I’ve spent almost 15 months on him. He’s a liar – it makes my skin crawl. …… you see where he’s written on Facebook that he’s given £4,500 to Children in need? Babe he doesn’t even have £2 to spare. He lived with me all last year & then from march & never paid a penny. The guy is a conman. Olly isn’t much better but wow you think you know people & you don’t xxx so single, skinny & going to enjoy the summer. Going to Ibiza in June xxx.
