Former Friend Caught Jeromie Williams Stealing Cash Red-Handed

As longtime readers of this blog know, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams has a long history of thievery from animal rescuers, co-workers, and even his friends, most likely to support his long-term addiction to crystal methamphetamine.

Many years ago, one of his closest friends suspected Jeromie of stealing hundreds of dollars. So, he decided to set a trap:

I suspected him of stealing my money while he visited my home. We’re probably talking a few hundred dollars over a few months. $20 here, $50 there. One day I decided to investigate. I left a $5 bill and a twoonie on my table. This was enough money that it’s still theft to take it, but not enough that I couldn’t afford to lose it. He came over, and didn’t take the bait at first. I thought, maybe I haven’t given him enough chance, so I went into another room for a minute.When I came back, of course the five and two are missing. I called him out on it. He denied and denied it. I eventually told him the trick I pulled to catch him. It was at that point that he turned everything back around on me and began doing what he does best… projecting!

He questioned the ethics and morality of entrapping him like that. He argued that if I left it out for him to take, I have no right to be angry about it. If I expected it to happen, who am I to claim he “stole” it. If I left it out, I pretty much gave it to him. In addition to attacking my morals, he also questioned my sanity.

I explained that if he knew it was my money, not his, and that I didn’t give it to him, nor would I, it was the very definition of theft. He must have known it was wrong if he waited until I left the room. I also now know that all the other missing money was stolen by him, which is what made me suspicious to begin with, and now I can’t trust him. He didn’t realize it wasn’t about that particular incident. It was actually about a friend of mine stealing hundreds of dollars from me over a few months, which was a massive violation of trust, and something I needed to stop.

If Jeromie has no scruples about stealing from his closest friends, you can be sure he has none about stealing from anyone else, either.

Jeromie Williams Buys Facebook Likes?

It has come to our attention that the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams may be buying “likes” on Facebook for his WordPress blog. One of our contributors has pointed out the discrepancy between his 698 “likes” and the fact only one person is “talking about this”:

(One of our associates noted the irony that in real life, many people are talking about Jeromie Williams, but very few like him. The way he portrays himself on Facebook is, as usual, the precise opposite of reality.)

In November 2012, Jeromie himself pointed out a similar discrepancy on another site, and concluded that since “your Likes VS Talking About are not in line with each other,” the “likes” were obviously paid for. “As a Social Media manager,” he said, “I can guarantee anyone here that this guy is not what he says he is”:

At a cost of 45 cents per like, 698 followers would cost over $300, although we assume a fair number of them are Jeromie’s sock puppet accounts.

Since buying Facebook likes is quite similar to buying Facebook votes, this revelation provides further support to allegations that Jeromie was involved in cheating in the Chase Community Giving contest, in cooperation with co-conspirators like Ashley Owen Hill and Pippa Jackson.

An informant has revealed that, at minimum, Jeromie and Pippa conspired to smear another charity in the contest, Community Animal Rescue & Adoption (CARA):

Perhaps aided by votes purchased much like Jeromie’s Facebook likes, both Pippa and Ashley won substantial sums from Chase, and Pippa, at least, recognised that Jeromie’s tactics deserved much of the credit:

Ashley, who won $100,000 after receiving thousands of suspicious votes, now appears to be simply paying herself that money. Meanwhile, Pippa’s facility is notorious for poor conditions, including inadequate roofing, water leaks, mud and feces in kennels, with dogs outside in freezing temperatures, no fresh water, minimal vetting being performed on the animals, unaltered dogs being kept together in the same pens with puppies resulting, and even dog fighting. (Fortunately Jeromie doesn’t live in Mississippi, or we might have to add to that list.)

Sadly, cheating in the Chase contest very likely deprived far more worthy and legitimate charities of much-needed funding.

As always, the animals suffered most.

Jeromie Williams Demonstrates “How Easy It Is To Fake Shit”

As we reported on Friday, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams recently slandered one of his former associates in a series of emails. For example:

He also threatened to fabricate and/or edit screenshots, to make it appear she had written things she had not. He demonstrated his abilities to “fake shit” in his emails:

As she responded, “You’re a fraud. 100% pure unfiltered organic bullshit. Scum.”

Nor is this the first time Jeromie has “forged” a screenshot. He’s been doing that since (at least) 2011:

Perhaps most egregiously, Jeromie’s most recent “faked shit” includes fabricated posts and ads that viciously defame Heather Jay, such as this:

 

Jeromie has also admitted to “lying his ass off” on his CV, and he is responsible for countless frauds and hoaxes that are documented throughout this site.

Jeromie Williams Tweets Images of Beastiality

Jeromie Williams often claims to be an animal lover and an animal rights advocate — claims which are now belied by his history of stealing from and threatening animal rescuers, and threatening, neglecting, and/or abusing dogs and cats.

Yesterday Jeromie added to that list by using a sock puppet account to tweet graphic and disturbing images of implied beastiality, such as this:

UPDATE: These tweets have been deleted.

Jeromie Williams “Totally Lies His Ass Off” on New CV

Back in my inaugural post on this blog, in January 2012, I noted that the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams had filled his CV with obvious lies:

Even a cursory review of Jeromie’s past activities reveals an incredible number of exaggerations and embellishments. As Kim noted, Jeromie’s CV alone contains several:

  • Jack Layton served him a cheeseburger once, so he “Cooked cheeseburgers with Jack Layton.”
  • He filled out a form, so he’s a “Medal of Bravery Nominee.”
  • He saw some lightning once, presumably, and “Survived being hit by lightning.”

You get the idea.

But apparently the lie-per-sentence ratio was still not high enough, so Jeromie recently resolved to “totally lie [his] ass off in a new CV”:

The text-only version:

And, I am going to totally lie my ass off in a new CV

I used to work at a few places that are since bankrupt or sold to new management

Extend those dates of employment by a whole fuck of a lot :)

JEsus H Murphy

Why didn’t I think of this before :)

For our part, we wonder if Jeromie had anything to do with the bankruptcies of all of these companies…

Accomplice of Jeromie Williams Exposed as Fraud Artist

Today our partner site, Pet Pardons Watch, once again revealed that one of the accomplices of the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams appears to be responsible for a giant fraud of her own.

Given newly released 2012 990-EZ forms, they are able to show that Ashley Owen Hill, the co-founder of Pet Pardons, and founder of Lucky Dog Rescue in Meridian, Mississippi, has taken in nearly $300,000 in donations since 2011.

However, rather than spend the money on rescuing “lucky” dogs, it seems like the only one who got “lucky” is Ashley Owen Hill, who may now be simply paying herself that money at a rate of over $100,000 per year ($59,839 in salary, $26,251 in rent, $18,193 in “supplies,” etc.).

Here is a small sample:

“There are a variety of much smaller expenses listed as well, including Veterinary Fees (Schedule O), at only $5,286 in 2011, and $0 in 2012. You read that correctly. According to its own 2012 990-EZ form, this dog rescue “charity,” which had $99,252 in the bank at the end of 2011, then raised another $73,474 during 2012, and “won” another $100,000 in 2012, spent $0 on veterinary fees in 2012.”

Facebook Group “Gay Montreal” Adds Jeromie Williams As Administrator

On Saturday, Mr. Jon Di T made a mistake that he will, no doubt, soon come to regret: He made the crystal meth addicted male prostitute criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams an administrator of the Facebook group “Gay Montreal“:

As we have explained since the very beginning on this site, Jeromie has a long history of abusing any and all admin authority he is granted in order to further his various (often criminal) scams and frauds. As Tiffany Willis explained to him last November, “admin rights and authority seem to take you to another place mentally, where you think you’re in control of things and people”:

And like clockwork, Jeromie apparently immediately abused his new authority to once again promote himself, and his latest scam in particular, a $500 “Spring Social Media Startup Sale“:

As we just reported last Wednesday, Heather Jay paid Jeromie this much and more for his social media work, and she got a starving cat and a trashed house, instead.

Over the years, people all over the world have donated thousands of dollars to Jeromie’s ChipIn accounts in order to help rescue animals, and very often they got death threats and criminal harassment instead.

Jeromie has also, on numerous occasions, failed to pay people for their work, as promised, and/or demanded payment for work he had simply not done.

Most of all, we assume Mr. T simply was not aware that Jeromie Williams has previously been fired by The Gaily, a website for Canadian gays and lesbians, where he was a contributing editor at the site until March 2012. Though no details were provided, it is speculated that he was terminated after criminally harassing and making death threats against a woman and teenaged boys, who he also attacked with homophobic slurs:

It would be odd, to say the least, for a “group for LGBT people in Montreal” to condone such behaviour.

We hope they are able to sever ties with Jeromie quickly and safely, but he appears to be in a violent frame of mind.

Jeromie Williams Slanders Another Former Employer

Yesterday, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams partook in a familiar tradition: he slandered a former employer.

It all started after he was fired on December 5th by the Editor-in-Chief of LiberalAmerica.org, Tiffany Willis, for harassing her staff and other inappropriate behaviour. Once again, he tried to “get back at” his former employer through slanderous lies. Specifically, he accused LiberalAmerica.org of stealing a banner logo that he “designed, was never paid for, and gave no permission for them to use,” and he urged readers on behalf of “all creative people” not to share any LiberalAmerica.org articles:

The problem, of course, is that every word is a lie. The graphic was designed by a professional named Mike, who was paid $40, and who gave full permission for them to use it on their site.

The notion that Jeromie had anything to do with the logo’s design apparently comes from a conversation with Tiffany Willis on September 16, in which he simply refers her to another site’s logo, and makes several suggestions which are ultimately rejected:

As you can plainly see above, (1) there’s no flag in the middle, or on the tallest building, (2) it’s not a suburban scene, with houses side by side, (3) it’s not in blacks and greys, and so on.

Tiffany Willis responded to Jeromie as follows:

You didn’t design ANYTHING. You TOLD me about the site and showed me the logo. You did NOTHING. Here is the conversation [above]. The only resemblance it has to the other site is that it has a cityscape and it’s a very different cityscape. You’re a liar and you’re accusing me and/or a graphic designer of a crime. Are you sure you want to do this? …You have some nerve taking design credit for something you didn’t do anywhere. You didn’t do the LGBTQ nation one and you didn’t do ours. Saying ‘I like theirs but in gray and black’ is NOT doing design work! …

Oh and….the flag isn’t on the tallest building and our buildings aren’t hand-drawn and they’re not in black and white. You’re an idiot. You really just are. A REAL artist drew this by hand based on a verbal image I gave him. You have NO RIGHT to try to take credit for telling me “hey look at this website.” What is that worth, Jeromie? 20 seconds of your time?

But this follows a familiar pattern for Jeromie, who often slanders former employers and associates to “get back at” them for firing him. Only a few months ago, back in September, Jeromie slandered Jacob Daruvala in order to “get back at” the site Addicting Info for firing him:

In June 2012, Jeromie attacked staff at The Gaily as “cowards” after they fired him for inappropriate behaviour, including criminally harassing, stalking and making death threats against Kim Johnson and her teenaged boys, using homophobic epithets. Earlier in 2012, Jeromie harassed several other employees both before and after he was fired by Playboy for inappropriate behaviour. He also compared the Examiner.com to a Third World sweat shop after they fired him for fabricating events, people, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes in his articles.

Most egregiously, after Jeromie was exposed as a thief and embezzler for withholding thousands of dollars from the Canadian animal rescue group Operation Sled Dogs, he wrote a disgusting article slandering the group, accusing them of “kill[ing] puppies,” and included a picture of a dog in a garbage bag. (While one dog was euthanized, there was never any suggestion of negligence, let alone intentionally “killing puppies,” on the part of the group.)

And, for the record, Jeromie Williams still owes Operation Sled Dogs $1,800, plus interest.

This, Jeromie, is what theft looks like:

Stolen Money

Revealed: Jeromie Williams Accomplice Behind Charity Scam

Yesterday our partner site, Pet Pardons Watch, revealed that one of the accomplices of the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams appears to be responsible for a charity scam of monumental proportions.

It appears that Ashley Owen Hill, the co-founder of Pet Pardons, and founder of Lucky Dog Rescue in Meridian, Mississippi, is still asking for donations, despite apparently having reserves of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and relatively low annual expenses:

According to the most recent 990-EZ form for Lucky Dog Rescue (from 2011), this “charity” had a total revenue of $122,855 for the year, and expenses of only $23,603, for a surplus of $99,252. That’s right, she spent only 19% of what people donated to her that year.

According to SeriousGivers, a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to providing independent information, data and metrics to assist charity donors, Lucky Dog Rescue had a reserve ratio of 4.2 in 2011, indicating that revenues far exceed expenses. This is important because, as SeriousGivers notes, “an organization with very large reserves may not need your support.”

In fact, SeriousGivers recommends against donating to charities in the “red zone” of reserve ratios above 5.0. While ratios between 0.5 and 2.0 are considered appropriate (the “green zone”), ratios between 2.0 and 5.0 (the “yellow zone”) “should be discussed directly with and satisfactorily explained by the organization’s management before a donation is made.”

Unfortunately, Ashley Owen Hill does not seem willing to provide any explanation, satisfactory or otherwise. …

As far as anyone can verify, this is a charity with virtually no liabilities, and possibly over $200,000 in the bank (the $99,252 surplus from 2011, plus the $100,000 from Chase in 2013). If other donations in 2012 and 2013 are similar to those in 2011, additional excesses of $99,252 in these years could bring the total up to $400,000.

On the other hand, Lucky Dog Rescue apparently has annual expenses of only about $23,000. According to Schedule O in the 2011 990-EZ form, this includes about $8,000 in supplies (dog food), $5,000 in veterinary fees, $5,000 in salaries, $4,000 in rent, and about a thousand in miscellaneous other expenses.

Evan Solomon Quotes Jeromie Williams on CBC

On Thursday, November 7, Evan Solomon interviewed Calgary MP Michelle Rempel on CBC TV about sexism in Canadian politics. Incredibly, he quoted Jeromie Williams, who, in a recent trolling attack, said she looks “like a hooker” (scroll to the 6:00 mark in the video here):

Her response is thoughtful and passionate, and worth listening to in full.

Later, CBC reporter Susan Lunn asked Ms. Rempel a similar question in a scrum, only less politely. Which is amazing, frankly, when you think about it. As I pointed out on Twitter, CBC reporters are apparently now taking their cues from the misogynist and criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams. Not only are CBC reporters following his script, they are actually reading his tweets and displaying his twitter handle on television.

That’s incredible, considering (as I pointed out in a recent post) Jeromie has a long history of woman-hatred. He has stalked and harassed them, and stolen thousands of dollars from them. He pickets breast cancer research events. He has called women names, like “bitch” and “saggy titted cunt” (with “faggy” sons), and blogged about shutting them up with giant black penises. He has fantasized about killing them, and threatened to do so, again, and again.

(You can listen to his threatening voicemail and telephone rants for yourself.)

Not to mention that he has a long history of publishing egregiously ridiculous and sensational bullshit simply in order to generate hits and ad revenue, inciting many death threats all along the way (not to mention racism and xenophobia). As he has admitted, he’s a “hustler for pennies.”

In a recent scaremongering (and entirely discredited) post on radiation from Fukushima, for example, he warned that if “you live on the west coast of Canada or the United States, you’re pretty much already screwed” due to the radioactive isotopes, and you must “Wash your food with soap.” Seriously. This piece of garbage has been shared 67,000 times on Facebook, and now that total may even increase thanks to our public broadcaster.

Is this really the best the CBC can do?
