The quote of the month for July is from the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams himself:
He also claimed that he’s “meeting with the RCMP in a few weeks,” presumably to report me for “stalking and harassing” him (i.e. publishing information about his many crimes):
Casual readers might wonder why, if I have been “stalking and harassing” Jeromie for “over two years,” he is only going to meet with the RCMP “in a few weeks.”
Regular readers might recall, to take only a few examples, that:
That’s a lot of police reports! Or, to be more precise, a lot of lies.
For the record, I suspect that Jeromie has not, and will not, go to the RCMP for two very simple reasons:
Of course, if Jeromie ever does give me a name or contact information for the officer(s) he’s claimed, at various times, to be dealing with, I’ll be happy to post a correction here.
Along with the officer’s contact info, of course, for all of Jeromie’s victims.
UPDATE (July 28, 2014): More of the same, this time to “Social Media Strategist” Karen Geier:
As we revealed yesterday, Jeromie Williams has begun another of his criminal harassment campaigns against a former associate. In the process, he made a series of threats against the authors of this blog:
“Believe what you want from that site, believe whatever shit they make up, the site will be down soon, people will be in jail, and all those involved in any way in the site will see their day in court.”
As I have pointed out before, Jeromie has been threatening to have me thrown in jail since January 2012. Since then, he has made a series of similar threats to Kim Johnston and her sons, the animal rescuers at Operation Sled Dogs (you can listen to their telephone conversation on YouTube), Tiffany Willis and others at Liberal America, Heather Jay and her friends, and on and on and on.
Still, we are now literally quaking in our boots.
Jeromie is about to let the “Hammer of Justice” fly loose:
Here’s how his former associate responded:
More crying, Jeromie? Gee, I’ve got records listing me as the purchaser of the domain name, and a contract saying I am free of any financial responsibility to you 30 days after you signed it.
Please show me just how fast and sophisticated you are. lol. Poor deluded mentally ill boy. Bring it. Or talk more shit. That’s entertaining too.
Hammer of Justice. LOL. More like shit stain of Jeromie’s delusional blathering. You know, like you left all over Heather’s place. Alongside the half dead cat. Did you f*** that too like you did the dog or just beat the hell out of it and try to starve it to death?
C’mon, don’t you have any REAL threat? I was so looking forward to a challenge instead of this sophomoric attempt to frighten me. Has this sort of shit worked on your previous victims? Because you really suck.
We couldn’t say it any better ourselves.
Yesterday, in Alberta, two police officers were seriously injured in the line of duty. One was shot, and the other was actually run over by a fleeing suspect in a Dodge truck. This officer apparently sustained serious internal injuries, as well as several broken bones.
As you might expect of any decent human being, Dan Tencer of 630 CHED in Edmonton, Alberta, expressed his concern for the officers in a couple of tweets.
What happened next is shocking, although we suspect longtime readers of this blog will not be surprised in the slightest. The criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams used one of his fake, sock puppet accounts to attack Mr. Tencer:
What might explain Jeromie’s callous disregard for the lives and safety of these police officers?
Well, for one, they’re Albertans, and of course Jeromie hates “our red neck province.” Or, perhaps he suspects the officers were looking for marijuana, and, being a “pretty heavy pot user,” he thinks they got what they deserved. Or, it’s possible that he just hates all police, given that they’re currently investigating him for criminal harassment, uttering threats, intimidation, fraud, and embezzlement.
Whatever the case, it’s pretty obvious who the asshole is here.
When we informed Ashley Owen Hill, the co-founder of Pet Pardons, that her Director of Operations in Canada, Jeromie Williams, was breaking the organization’s rules, and stealing from various ChipIn accounts, she didn’t even respond to us. When we told her about how he had threatened Kim Johnston, her sons in Colorado, their dogs, and Topher Mackenzie, still, she ignored us.
So you can imagine how stunned I was to find that Ms. Hill, who is also the founder of the Lucky Dog Rescue in Meridian, Mississippi, has created a series of at least a dozen disgusting, mean-spirited, and insulting videos. They viciously insult and threaten the public in a way eerily reminiscent of Jeromie Williams. Ashley’s cartoon alter ego even threatens to murder an animal control officer with her “crazy rescue friends” (which includes Jeromie Williams, presumably).
She says that these videos are just for laughs, but I haven’t laughed once. I don’t think there’s anything funny about them. Particularly not given Jeromie Williams’ long and sordid history of threatening people, including animal rescuers, using vile and violent language.
Similarly, Ashley’s videos are full of obnoxious behaviour, including threats, swearing, and total contempt and disrespect for others, but especially Christians, women, people of colour, the uneducated, Republicans, gays, Wal-Mart employees, part-time workers, gas station workers, Southerners, the poor, the rich, and government officials.
In the video above, for example, Ashley berates a concerned citizen as a “f***ing dumbass” (0:14), and tells him “I think I’m supposed to be polite here, but lucky for me, I don’t f***ing feel like it … You are so damned stupid …” (0:45). “While I appreciate your f**king raw stupidity,” she continues, “you should not be allowed to be alive” (1:49). Indeed, “I can assure you that if I could get my hands on some firearms, you would be my first f***ing target” (2:20).
If you didn’t get the message, she continues to mock the citizen, telling him he should be “promoted to cashier at Wal-Mart” or even “President of the United mother-f***ing States.” (3:20). “Your brain is so damn small,” she tells him, “and f***ing useless…” (3:42). Meanwhile, she describes the other co-founder of Pet Pardons, Chris Hoar, as “the evil mastermind behind” a “f***ing grand murder plot” (1:25), and tells the citizen that if he wants to ask Hoar about this, he can call “800-F***-Yourself” (4:10).
One has to wonder what kind of person would write something like this. Fortunately, Ashley provides the answer: “If you think I’m a b*tch,” she says, “you ain’t seen nothing yet” (4:20).
Indeed. That’s only the first video.
In a video entitled “Dealings with Animal Control,” posted on January 12, 2011,
There are more videos I could have added. Some include vile “jokes” about pit bull attacks on children. In a video entitled “Encounter in the vet’s office,” posted on April 21, 2011, Ashley tells a man that “Pit bulls eat children for dinner. They eat adults like you for breakfast” (0:50).
In a video entitled “First Day in Rescue,” posted on January 26, 2011, Ashley calls a member of the public a “deranged idiot” (1:41) and “bats*** crazy” (3:20), and, ironically, given her threats in nearly every other video, warns that “people like you send innocent citizens running for their lives.” Actually, people like Jeromie Williams send innocent citizens running to the police for restraining orders and protection.
Again, one has to wonder what kind of person Ashley Owen Hill really is. Calling people morons, stupid, threatening them, swearing just about every second word. Using guns, threatening to kill people, including government officials, or to just beat them up.
She may say this was all done in humor. I did not laugh once. I do not see any humor here. The Pet Pardons Canadian director, Jeromie Williams, is notorious for stealing money, criminal harassment, and making death threats. We have written about this many times. Ashley Owen Hill has not responded once.
It seems if you are part of Pet Pardons, it’s okay to threaten people. It’s just their standard operating procedure. Let’s just fix that logo of theirs:
Not to mention that in a video entitled “I want to help rescue dogs, kinda,” posted on January 8, 2011, Ashley complains that “I work seven days a week, in addition to spending all my spare time rescuing dogs” (1:30). Well it seems to us she spends all her time making disgusting videos, and writing heart-wrenching stories on her blog (literally all of which beg for donations).
Then, I paid the $400 vet bill I wasn’t quite prepared for, helped Delilah into the car, and drove her home. This weekend, Delilah has required around-the-clock care from me. She’s very weak, very sick, and very needy right now. Seeing her like this… well… it’s beyond heartwrenching.
Initially… upon return, she wouldn’t eat at all. But soon, I learned that “people food” was enough to entice her.
So… instead of dog food, she’s been sharing people food with me. Actually… it’s more accurate to say that I’ve simply been giving her all of my own food, and taking none for myself, which has honestly made me insanely happy. She needs it… much more than I do right now.
In other words, DONATE NOW or she might starve!!! Well, sorry, I just don’t believe her.
As the The Pet Advocates Network has pointed out, there is no transparency at the “Lucky Dog” rescue. No disclosure of financial records, or veterinary records, or adoption records, or anything else. And no website, just a blog, with a call for donations. That’s it.
And the fact that neither she nor Chris Hoar have ever responded to our many questions about Jeromie Williams, his death threats, his many scams, and his embezzlement from legitimate animal rescuers just raises more questions about her, and about Pet Pardons.
Again, we urge you not to donate to any of them. Save your money for legitimate rescuers, who don’t threaten to kill anyone, don’t steal from anyone, and fully and transparently disclose their financial records.
UPDATE (August 13, 2012): Ashley appears to have deleted her Xtranormal account and restricted access to her offensive videos on Youtube. Much like Cayr Ariel Wulff, we’re sure she would love to cover this all up, and pretend it never happened. Unfortunately for her, our network saved copies and screenshots of each and every one of her disgusting videos.
In the comments, Wulff responded by slandering me, Alison Hector of the The Pet Advocates Network, and even the Operation Sled Dog (OSD) rescue group from which Jeromie stole $1,800. The group’s driver, she claimed, “killed 7 [dogs] with his negligence” and gave “his choice of dogs to a puppy mill.”
Well, those are just outright lies. The driver did not negligently kill seven dogs, and none were given to puppy mills (although it is true that one did not survive, sadly, as Jeromie notes on his blog, which interestingly does not mention the death of seven dogs or any negligence on the part of the driver).
Why would he lie? We guess it was just a desperate attempt to justify his embezzlement of $1,800 from OSD. Jeromie certainly has no trouble making up horrible stories about other people, as he has done so many times before about so many others. But it must be nice for him to have Cayr Ariel Wulff around to help spread the libel!
Speaking of which, we noticed that Wulff has since spread more outrageous lies in a post on the Scamwarners website. Although the thread was soon deleted (presumably after complaints from Pet Pardons, and/or Jeromie himself), here is a screenshot:
Let’s take her claims one at a time:
1. Jeromie Williams is not a director at Pet Pardons any more than he is the “King of Neptune.” He is only an “editor” who edits Cayr’s articles.
Pet Pardons may have taken great efforts to scrub any reference to Jeromie Williams as “Director of Operations” for Pet Pardons Canada off the internet, but Wulff’s claim is simply not credible.
Firstly, Jeromie Williams has consistently referred to himself as Director of Operations in Examiner.com stories about himself, and on his own blog. If you visit it today, or any of his other sites, you will find that he has changed his title there to “Managing Editor” of Pet Pardons News. Maybe tomorrow, he will give himself a new title.
Regardless, the claim that Jeromie simply edits articles is laughable, as the OSD case illustrates. Chris Hoar, the co-founder of Pet Pardons, assured donors that “On the ground for the rescue will be Jeromie Williams … making sure that every dollar raised tonight goes as far as it can.”
Jeromie apparently took this as license to attempt to take over the whole operation, and tell experienced OSD rescuers how to do their jobs. Shockingly, it transpired that he did not know how to do their jobs better than they did. You, gentle reader, can probably guess what happened next. Criminal harassment and death threats, of course.
And, as it turned out, some of the dollars raised could only “go as far as” Jeromie’s bank account, and into bizarre ransom letters he sent to OSD rescuers, apparently with the full knowledge and support of Chris Hoar and Pet Pardons, who continue to associate with him even now.
Simply put, Jeromie is not, and was not, a simple “editor” at Pet Pardons.
2. Pet Pardons does not ask for donations. “YOU WILL NEVER SEE A REQUEST FOR PEOPLE TO SEND MONEY TO PET PARDONS.”
This plea for donations is posted on the official Pet Pardons website. Worse, the associated PayPal account is firstname.lastname@example.org, the very same address Jeromie uses whilst peddling his ridiculous $20 “Hug a Gay Day” T-shirts. He also uses it whilst soliciting donations for his personal website. In other words, incredibly, it seems that any money donated via the Pet Pardons website goes directly into a personal account of Jeromie Williams, not to Pet Pardons.
It gets worse. Jeromie also raises money for “Pet Pardons Canada” via ChipIn. We have posted previously on Jeromie’s various ChipIn scams, including the OSD case. Jeromie appears to have a long history of directing people interested in donating to Pet Pardons to donate instead to his personal ChipIn accounts, which also appear to be commingled with ChipIn accounts to support his personal website, and to support various other non-animal-related causes.
Basically, not only does Pet Pardons ask for donations, but any money donated appears to go directly to Jeromie Williams.
3. Pet Pardons directs donors to other rescues’ ChipIn sites.
Not in the case of Jeromie Williams. Jeromie has a long history of setting up ChipIn accounts for other rescuers, and then apparently pilfering the donations for himself. For example:
As we have noted previously, we told Pet Pardons co-founders Chris Hoar and Ashley Owen Hill about Jeromie’s history back in January, including his criminal harassment of Kim Johnston and her family, and his subsequent death threats.
They didn’t even respond to us.
In fact, their one and only public comment on the matter comes in the form of a two-word tweet back in May:
Like Nixon, “Jeromie is not a crook.” No explanation. No documentation. No apology.
Contrast the lack of transparency at Pet Pardons with OSD, a legitimate rescue group, which has released all relevant financial statements from their operation.
Luckily for him the URL JeromiePardons.com is still available.
UPDATE: Wulff also asks whether the Race for the Cure is a scam because it raises money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We’re not sure we understand her point, but we will take this opportunity to point out, once again, that Jeromie Williams has pledged to “picket” the next Pink Ribbon event in Montreal, apparently because he is convinced that yes, the Komen Foundation is a scam. Or at least, that it’s not “inclusive of men.” (Yes, he actually wrote that.)
Back in January, we reported that Jeromie Williams disparaged his former employers at the Examiner.com after he was terminated for fabricating events, people, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes in his articles (see my original post for further details). Amazingly, he compared the Examiner to a Third World sweat shop.
Today we noticed that Jeromie has continued to disparage his former employers, this time taking aim at The Gaily, a website for Canadian gays and lesbians, where he was contributing editor until March. The website disassociated itself from him entirely after he criminally harassed, stalked and made death threats against Kim Johnson and her teenaged boys, using homophobic epithets.
The hashtag #cowardsgossip presumably was meant to imply that Ms. Jahn, and the rest of Jeromie’s former friends and colleagues at The Gaily, are all cowards for talking about him (and all his disgraceful, and often illegal, activities, no doubt) behind his back.
Well, we say, kudos to Ms. Jahn and The Gaily for recognizing who the real coward is here (if a bit belatedly), and severing all ties with him accordingly.
We would also like to issue a friendly warning to Hugh Hefner. If it’s true that Jeromie once “pulled the strings behind the scenes for Playboy.com” at “Team Heffner” [sic.], then, given Jeromie’s well-documented history of lashing out at former employers, Mr. Hefner might want to watch his back. Of course, it’s not true, as Jeromie also has a well-documented history of embellishing on his resume. Presumably if Jeromie was actually on “Team Hefner,” he would know how to spell the man’s name.
Still, it’s good advice for anyone to watch their back around Jeromie Williams.
