Okay. I have the best family and friends EVER!!! My dear sweet love, D, taught my husband in college when B was only 18+. Need I say more??? This man (D) is clearly a saint! I've been dealing with B after maturation at age 40! Girl! It's been real!!! D was not only B's professor but mentor. Paths diverged, but realigned when they found each other again 20+ years ago. Since then we have been forever bonded. We are hiking buddies. We are parents and grandparents. We are dinner companions. D sat with B through my surgeries. D takes care of my children, even though they are now 25 and 27. Hell! D takes care of ME!!! WE are FAMILY!!! Today a fucking asshole scammed my dear D. Calling him...saying, "Hey, this is your grandson!" To which D responded, "What?" But, then he assumed it was my son. In the end scammer asshole said my son, D's dear grandson, was in jail due to unfortunate circumstances in Tampa, Florida and needed $1,485.00 in order to make bail. My dear sweet friend, went as fast as he could to the nearest Moneygram office and sent the money. This ass first called posing as my son, then, as soon as it sounded as though D would help, he called again - posing as a person (Matthew Anderson) from the Public Defender's Office in Tampa who needed the money sent to Kurt Adams in the office of Bail Bonds Roche at 1906 Orient Road, Tampa, Fla. Kurt Adams took the money.
Not only did he take the money....he called dear D back later that afternoon. Shockingly, he needed more money to settle the entire situation. Well, dear D didn't have that money. So, he came over. Needless to say, he had promised his grandson that he wouldn't tell us of all the difficulties...but when the funds were such that he couldn't meet the need...he felt horrible...but came to tell us. Well! We called our son. No, he was not in Tampa. And, No! None of the things alleged had happened!!!! But, we went to town on Matthew Anderson/Kurt Adams/Matthew Adams!!! (And, I am not done!!!)
A quick google of the number: 1-800-388-6514 (Please call it! One thousand times. Over and over. Leave a message that you are ready to wire money for your dear one!!!!) shows that many folks have been scammed in a similar way. See this post: https://www.facebook.com/celeste.morris.140 where I added to the message the Lucas County Sheriff's Office has put out.
Thankfully, Moneygram....somehow, someway....despite paying out the initial sum....figured out this asshole is a scammer. They are to refund my dear sweet D his money. But....I am not done! I will be contacting the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department in the morning. I have already reported the crime here in TN. I have let the Bail Bond Company know that their name and address are being used by an ass. I am not done! Be ware and help me if you can. I HATE BULLIES!!! And thieves. And liars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On that topic....Fredda Branyon. Remember her???? Check out this post if you don't: Quack Watch!!! - Jerks who try to take advantage of the word "cancer"! And this one: Jenny Hudgeson, Kim Burns, and Fredda Branyon...different or the same???? This bitch and her minions (or just herself with poor English and weirdness) posted on MY blog!!!

As if that was not enough, I learned this: Stem Cell Smuggler Pleads Guilty
Basically, it says this:
