AIG is at it AGAIN!!! Dear Lord, Please Make it Stop!!!

Click the title link for the reponse I got from AIG blog relations...remember that? Where they assured me they recognized the problem and were doing everything in their power to put an end to it? Not only are they asking for more money but here's the article about their latest retreat. On ABC News last night the reporters discovered that AIG had told the Phoenix resort to disguise their presence...

"Even as the company was pleading the federal government for another $40 billion dollars in loans, AIG sent top executives to a secret gathering at a luxury resort in Phoenix last week.

Reporters for abc15.com (KNXV) caught the AIG executives on hidden cameras poolside and leaving the spa at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort, despite apparent efforts by the company to disguise its involvement.

"AIG made significant efforts to disguise the conference, making sure there were no AIG logos or signs anywhere on the property," KNXV reported.

A hotel employee told KNXV reporter Josh Bernstein, "We can't even say the word [AIG]."

A company spokesperson, Nick Ashooh, confirmed AIG instructed the hotel to make sure there were no AIG signs or mention of the company by staff.

"We're trying to avoid confrontation, keep our profile low," said Ashooh. "Some of our employees have been harassed.""
Here's the the news video.

Makes me sick...I think it's time to use the "Contact" widget don't you?
