    Anthony (Tony) Vaughn, could not afford to pay staff members, he went about uncivillised methods (to say the least) ways of “retrenching” staff – forcing them to resign…. However he can afford a lavish wedding in Franchoek??? Makes one think what kind of conscience he has!!! Pathetic what people do these days!!!
    Leaving people financially burdened and stressed!!
    I WONDER HOW HE WOULD FEEL IF HE KNEW HIS CHILDREN WERE WITHOUT FOOD AND ESSENTIAL RESOURCES _the same way he left so many staff members stranded….
    Sitting here writing this I feel sick to my stomach thinking about this whole ordeal!

    Vaughn is a doos. He has no conscience. He doesn’t know half his children. He is going to see his arse very soon and then all those he has ridden roughshod over can throw a party to celebrate in Franschhoek…. light the bonfires!

    Just questioning

    This is terrible, my heart goes out to these staff members, but surely with the new Companies act,makes owners/directors personally liable for the debt?

    I’ve never heard one good word about this guy! Like….not one!!! Fact: It seems the only person Tony cares about is Tony. He can try and change his name to Anthony to distance himself from it all …but really. it just makes it look all the more dirty! I wish his new wife luck, whoever she is.

    Have to give it to this guy. He is GOOD!!!!. He has the ability to run up printing bills last rumoured to run past R11 million. The IDC that holds a R1,8million PERSONAL SURITY on him, yet he brags about his “mate on the inside” who helps keep him off the radar. Company debtors are encouraged to pay into his personal account – more poor people who are going to get burnt!!! Yet he always lands on his feet – the new celeb wifey about to give birth to his 5th kid, should ensure he maintains his high flying lifestyle. Just wondering where the new wife stands with all this. Was there a full and franc disclosure before the wedding bells chimed???

    Why is this man still around to torment people? I believe he’s been reported to SARS on several occasions…..What are they doing about it? Agree, surely he’s personally liable some of the debt. Every 3rd person he’s dealt with seems to be out of pocket! Where’s it all gone?

    Media Nova has seen the most amazing talent come and go – all beaten down by this man in only months. Including a host of editors, managers and sales staff who are all now extremely successful in their own right. I laugh to myself – Vaughan was once quoted as saying “all staff are replaceable”.. great how replaceable the magazine was in the market place – REAL ESTATE is looking amazing and finally the property industry has a voice that is not lead by a fraudster. #VAUGHANGATE

    Why, why, why has no one had the guts to put this bully in his place? Are his constant threats so intimidating that his victims prefer to suffer in silence? Why have comments been deleted from this page? Is Vaughn threatening the author I wonder….. wouldn’t surprise me. Where is the law in all of this? SARS could have a field day with this guy. Time to put an end to this torment and send the man packing back to that little wet, dank, horrible island from whence he came.

    This is really sad, I was one of the unlucky ones employed by Media Nova and went through this whole ordeal. This man nearly ruined me financially and I have been borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and so forth. I am so glad that someone had the guts to do something about this. As they say every dog has his day and hope he gets his day soon. How can anyone get away with this.

    There may very well be news on this man very soon. Bullys bully until someone stops them and judged by the scores of bruised people popping up on this and other sites like Bizzcommunity – he may be very well advised to keep his several passports handy.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he is threatening people, he used to do it when I worked at Media Nova, both in his personal life and professional life. He needs to face the music!

    He definitely had
    no qualms about resorting to the most disgusting and fraudulent methods to get
    his way. He has no conscience, trust me. He treated his mother like shit whilst
    she was still alive, he treated people like shit if he didn’t need them anymore.
    He will do anything to destroy someone both emotional, professionally in any
    way he can. How would he feel if he knew
    his children were without food and essential resources? He wouldn’t care – it’s
    not like he was easily and willingly paying his maintenance for his 3 children
    (with 2 different women) – he had to be
    threatened with legal action and court orders needed to be obtained to force
    him and even then his payments were late and not the correct amounts etc. He is a tyrant to say the least.

    True, he is a fraudster of note
