Sailor Stolen Office Money

A CHIEF petty officer has been convicted of stealing $85,000 from the Royal Australian Navy.

Elizabeth Budek was a 25-year RAN veteran based at HMAS Penguin at Balmoral, where the fraud took place.

She quit in April 2006 and in June a bank employee notified the navy about discrepancies in some accounts.

The matter was referred to the Inspector General of Defence, who called in police.

It is understood Ms Budek was a secretary at HMAS Penguin, which is part of the navy's systems command and houses its main medical facility.

What BS!!! I was there at their public meeting when Wendy Burnham announced Elizabeth's guilt to the world. THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY!!! It was only a matter of time before the papers got hold of it.
Shameful!!!
When a guy is jailed for stealing $18,000 and Elizabeth gets a slap on the hands and a fine, justice is not served.
It makes you wonder about the rest of the committee when they didn't noticed the money being deposited and spent. Wouldn't you know how many people turn up at public meetings, how much literature is sold etc to see that it doesn't add up!!!
Good on you FERRET

Clubs normally get bank statements that record deposits and withdrawals.

Why did UFOR (NSW) not notice this unaccountable money going through its bank account. Something just doesn't add up.

Little bit of goss for yee all.

In 1996 Glennys Mackay put on a UFO conference in Brisbane Australia.

At that conference Glennys alleged someone had stolen approximately $10,000 of their door takings, said to have allegedly been placed in a cash bag then put in a box under a covered table for safekeeping.

Glennys Mackay "never" called the police to report the alleged theft even though she had her suspicion it was one of her lady helpers a Ms K.

Why not??

At that same UFO conference David Summers editor of Exposure Mag had his car stolen "he called the Police" the Police came to the venue to interview him as he had had his computer and a number of other things stolen.

What we all thought very strange, Glennys Mackay did not report the alleged theft of the $10,000 to the attending Police officers.

Why not? $10,000 is a lot of money to turn a blind eye too.

If in fact Ms K had taken the alleged missing money then the attending Police could have questioned Ms K about the funds and maybe recovered it.


Very strange yes?

Is UFOR INC (NSW) embarrassed by the story of Elizabeth Budek their former Treasurer turning up in the newspaper.

It appears they might be, as UFOR INC (NSW) have removed links to previously linked image galleries from their web site.

Image galleries previously linked were of past Christmas parties, Conferences and Outings.

Why did they feel this kind of action was necessary?

This has been brought to my attention via an email.

UFOR INC(NSW) have deleted unfavorable comments towards them from its GuestBook and replaced them with this explanation.

UFO Research Inc acknowledges that Ms Elizabeth Budek is subject to criminal proceedings. Members of the committee represented UFO Research NSW in a professional and responsible manner and the overall membership agree that the group is in fact much stronger and focussed

UFO Research has recently incorporated to provide membership with structure and process so that any possibility of similar situations arising have been addressed, also there is a responsibility now for the committee and membership to exercise due dilligence in its operation.

Finally, we would like to extend our welcome to all potential members to join an active group as we grow our organisation.

From The GateKeeper

(UFOR INC (NSW) you have mis-spelt
diligence)

---UFO Research Inc acknowledges that Ms Elizabeth Budek is subject to criminal proceedings.

#Is this just another play on words UFOR INC (NSW) Ms Elizabeth Budek was in fact found guilty and charged or haven't you been informed of these facts.

----Members of the committee represented UFO Research NSW in a professional and responsible manner and the overall membership agree that the group is in fact much stronger and focussed.

#What does this mean "much stronger and focussed" on what?

----UFO Research has recently incorporated to provide membership with structure and process so that any possibility of similar situations arising have been addressed, also there is a responsibility now for the committee and membership to exercise due (dilligence)in its operation.

#Your acknowledgment of Ms Elizabeth Budek wrong doings is very gallant of you all.

#Unfortunately this does not pardon neither UFOR (NSW) of Ms Elizabeth Budek actions as Ms Elizabeth Budek committed the fraud over many years while an active member UFOR (NSW).

She got her fraud past 2 UFOR (NSW) Club Presidents these being the present President (Wendy Burnham) and former President (Bryan Dickeson) she did so right under their noses......the question most people are asking is (how?)

#Becoming an Incorporation was a wise move as the Legal benefits are.
* Protection of personal assets.
* Safeguarding personal assets against the claims of creditors and lawsuits.

#$85,000 is a lot of money to be going through a non profit organisation bank account un-noticed.


----Finally, we would like to extend our welcome to all potential members to join an active group as we grow our organisation.


#Good luck, The Gatekeeper

#I have noticed UFOR INC (NSW) is now referring to UFOR (NSW) in a Past tense, is this just a childish way of trying to ignore actions of the past?
