The Revenge Guy Answers:
What can I do about my friend being scammed? Read on...
I am placing this email on behalf of a dear friend who is like a sister to me who needs a consult with you. If you do paid consults by phone/email let me know.
She dated a man who gave her a sob story that his "baby mamma", Francis took $50,000 cash from him. He even showed her a police report.
He is a masonry contractor who works for cash in Washington. While dating him she bought into his lies,"Francis is after my money and will you open a checking account for me?" She opened the account for him and gave him the only checks and debit card. She lives in Indiana, He lives in Washington. Every single transaction in the account is his and from Washington, she never touched the account. They only saw each other 2-3 times a month.
My friend is a busy working single mom with a disabled child and taking care of an elderly parent. She was trying to make time in her life to date but saw him so seldom she didn't realize how evil this guy was. She was an easy and trusting victim.
3 years into the relationship, she found out through a friend of his that he was doing drugs ( she saw a blood test report he had on his desk as testing positive for crack), stealing, and shoplifting from stores, and hiring criminals to subcontract masonry work on houses he got jobs on. He also started to show anger and rage tendencies over the phone. He also filed for disability SSI and was approved! So, he doesn't have to pay child support and he uses the state food stamp program.
She ended the relationship with him by politely saying she was busy and also had been recently diagnosed with high blood pressure. Her illness was true and she is a walking candidate for a stroke.
He stalked the website for the web-company she is contracted with and harassed me online, I am her friend. And he harassed other staff people on the site. My friend was asked to tell him to cease and desist. She did, the police couldn't do anything because he was changing up the identity on his harassment yet it was all targeted towards her. It became a disrupt to the company and they terminated her five year contract.
Now she is out a of a job. She goes into the hospital with severe high blood pressure.
This is where I get involved because I went to see her in the hospital and she was very sick. I took a picture of her for other co-workers who couldn't take the day off to see her that couldn't and I emailed it to 7 co-workers.
This guy escalates his revenge without a cause and files a false police report saying that she took $175,000 from him. He filed a false report and the police emailed her saying it was an active investigation. He forged emails from her saying that she owed him money. She never touched a dime of his money. His bank records show him spending his own money in Washington. The dollar amount he named was fictitious.
Also I should remind you above he did the same thing on his ex Francis.
He dropped the police report against Francis.
Now in the case of my friend, he also dropped the police report two weeks ago.
I wanted to tell you something on the police report in this case. The police initially did not want to drop the investigation. My friend was being placed in a situation to pay to hire an attorney ( fees starting at $7,000) to fight a false allegation.
I was so upset and called the police and asked them what proof do you have? Did you verify that he ever actually had this money?
They responded, well he showed e-mails and that is enough to open the case.
They were fake emails not even from her email address!
I then confronted this evil guy and said " Look, you filed a false police report, that is a crime and you can wind up in jail for that once they find out."
He then went in and dropped the report.
Its now 3 weeks later. He is text harassing my friend while she is still in the hospital. He called her at 4am to tell her, he saw the picture of her being sick (remember above I said I shared her picture with co-workers, one of them has a public profile and shared her on a prayer list on Facebook).
This evil guy uses the same fake email address to email the picture to himself. He then emails the police and said, "see she is trying to get me to feel sorry for her, and she sent me this picture of her being sick."
He then calls my friend at 4am yelling and screaming and saying he is going to explode, she had no right to leave him, he will make her pay for leaving him, he will take his story and talk to the FBI and the IRS. So basically he threatened to file more false reports . He then says he is seeking treatment for bi-polar disorder at the local VA hospital and he will be "let off for his actions".
So he pretty much threatened her again.
I don't want to start a police report war. He seems like the type of psycho that as soon as you fight back, he will fight you tit for tat.
This guy is a bunko artist. I need a way to stop him from hurting people before this gets out of hand.
I need to stop him and have him not know where the revenge is coming from, my friend is afraid of him.
Is there some kind of Shawshank Redemption scenario where he can get bombarded and immobilized in his tracks?
If you will take on this consult let me know.
Stressed for my friend
Your friend certainly doesn't deserve this. (And sadly I don't do personal "consults" as such.)
Scam artists have a lot of practice using the system for their own good and getting back at them usually means doing what they do but much, much better.
The first step is and always will be to keep a detailed journal of everything. Emails, phone calls, text messages, letters, bills, banks statements, everything really. Find programs to help your friend record things on her phone and be able to save it to a computer for easy retrieval later. If she hasn't done so now then it's a great time to start just so more time doesn't pass and memories get confused.
Now then, fire with fire.
Have her write a letter to him saying this:
"I am sorry for how things have worked out for you. As you know I am not in the best of health either and the added stress of all that has happened between us isn't good for either of us.
Before I pass away (the doctor's aren't hopeful for my condition getting better) I want to make things right.
I never told you about my life insurance policies and want to include you in them so you will be taken care of.
But I need to know that all of this is now settled between us.
Promise me that (add in what needs to be agreed to here - in your friend's words) and that the things you have said about me to the police will be taken back.
Please don't call, you can email me or write me, which I prefer, then I will go ahead and make sure you are taken care of."
And end the letter accordingly.
I would think that his reply should provide not only enough evidence against him but also some closure as well.
As for the life insurance? If she has some she might want to include him in her will with a nominal $1.00 payout amount. Certainly he will think he has a later claim on her.
