KwikChex is dedicated to verifying critical information about businesses, including their standards. This information has been used to reassure consumers and to promote businesses. KwikChex was incorporated in the UK in September 2010.

Our Motivation

The founder of KwikChex, Chris Emmins was hit not once but twice by substantial business fraud. The first was the Richbell Group who purchased one of the businesses started by Emmins - and then ran it into the ground, using its cash to help prop up the huge mess and deceit that was Richbell. Chris Emmins reported the situation to the authorities and not long after Richbell was exposed and collapsed. News report re Richbell Group http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/law-obituaries/5533900/David-Elias.html The second was at the time the biggest corporate fraud in the world - WorldCom.  This company collapsed owing substantial monies and effectively wiped out the business owned by Chris Emmins. Bernie Ebbers the CEO of WorldCom is currently serving a 25 year imprisonment sentence for fraud http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/2077838.stm. Aside from the obvious pain suffered directly, the knock on effect to our employees and suppliers was enormous.  Although obviously a commercial organisation, KwikChex was created to help fight fraud of many types and work towards the best in online information accuracy.

Cyber-bullying

One of the most rewarding aspects of our business is helping individuals that have been viciously attacked online. The distress that can be caused is almost limitless.

I found KwikChex totally by chance when my family and I had been under attack via a vicious libellous blog set up on Google in my name. Google had failed to respond to us or to police. My MP had been helpless, my trade union uninterested; lawyers demanded large sums with no guarantee of success. KwikChex were hugely sympathetic and pulled out all the stops with their particular expertise and finally Google did the right thing and took the blog down. It was a horrible time and, without the KwikChex team, might well have ended badly. Google need to be made to take responsibility and respond to this type of malice. The KwikChex team did what others had failed to do and protected us.

I can't thank you all, and especially Chris, enough for your fantastic help over such a dark situation. Your company is so kind and I am sure it has made, and will make, many people's lives so much happier, safer and more secure.
