THIS WAS RECENTLY POSTED ON ICAUSE BY TOMMY THOMPSON:
“Well there is a first time for everything I suppose, and I find myself in a position that I need help finally.
“Not to play any sympathy card, but just as data, this is what happened. I sent some money to the Ukraine for an apartment, food and things, as I will be arriving there just before Christmas.
“The person I sent it to had a niece that got sick. Took them to the hospital, discovered it was pnuemonia. A few tests later, was far more than that, and not curable in the hospital in ukraine. So had to take niece to Russia to a specalist hospital to save their life. Looks like they will survive.
“So they stole the money from me. They took my money and used it to save her life.
“What can I say? At this moment, I have no reserves to cover this. I can not just change the plans. I can’t even really bitch for them stealing it from me.
“So I am asking for help. A hand out if you will, or an advance on services if you want. I lost about $2000, hard money that will put me eating rice and beans in -20 degree weather, looking around for an apartment over new years when they will be ten times as expensive.
“Anyway I am in trouble a bit. I need some money, I never thought I would ever have to ask it.
“But I have helped a lot of you guys over the years. I could sure use some help now. I never really asked for anything.
“So what do you say? Can you send me whatever you can to founder@… via paypal? If it is a xmas present thank You very much. If it is an advance on your bridge, then it will be delivered.
“Thanks, and all the best.”
I know that Tommy has been giving his clients some of the worst auditing I have ever seen, but now could he really be resorting to scamming people?
