More Questions About GreenTech’s Legitimacy

- July 30, 2013

MORE GREENTECH WORKERS CLAIM THE COMPANY WAS A MERELY A "SHOW" FOR INVESTORS

During Interviews, Several Former GreenTech Employees Claimed They Were Used To Put On A "Show" For GreenTech Investors. "Perhaps the most startling revelation from the film comes from a group of former employees who agreed to go on camera. They each recount their experience with Greentech and echo many of same concerns that a former worker we profiled in an NBC12 special report did last week. The former workers go into detail about what they describe as a 'show' put on for what they thought to be investors." (Ryan Nobles, "First Look: 'Fast Terry' Uncovers More Disgruntled Greentech Employees," NBC 12, 7/29/13)

  • The Employees Also Claimed That, During Their Time At GreenTech, Few If Any Cars Were Produced. "In fact, several different former-Greentech employees claim that the work being done inside the company's Horn Lake, Mississippi plant isn't really anything at all." (Ryan Nobles, "Controversial New Documentary Attacks McAuliffe," NBC 12, 7/29/13)

One Former GreenTech Employee Said That For Months They Did Nothing But Paint And Sweep The Floor. "In fact several different former Greentech employees claim that the work being done inside the company's Horn Lake, Mississippi plant- isn't really anything at all. 'We probably came to work for about three or four months straight doing nothing but sweeping the floor or painting,' said Melvin. He is described as a 'former Greentech employee.'"

The Former GreenTech Employee Said GreenTech Management Told Them That The Company Was Dependant On Foreign Investors. GREENTECH EMPLOYEE: "Like I say, we were told that they depended on these foreign investors, the company depended on these investors coming in to finance the initiative that we were doing.'" (WMC-TN, 7/24/13)

  • Former GreenTech Employee: "It Was All An Act Put On For These Investors To Make Them Think We Were Producing And Actually Doing Work." "When the Chinese investor comes in, we were placed on the station, at our assigned work stations, we start working on the cars as if we were producing cars then sending them out the door. It was all a -- an act put on for these investors to make them think that we were producing and actually doing work when, in fact, these cars had been built six months prior to and tore apart and put on the line," ( WMC-TN, 7/24/13)

MAYORKAS: "And notably, when a report was published with respect to raising a question with respect to the integrity of this business enterprise, as I do in all circumstances, drawing upon my many years as a federal prosecutor, drawing upon my prioritization of national security and fraud detection in the agency and my execution of those priorities, as soon as I learned of a concern with respect to this matter from that perspective I referred the case to the fraud detection and national security directorate."
