Handwriting is Much More Than Pen & Paper

Knowledge and self-awareness are two powerhouses of the mind. The more you have, the more you can survive and succeed. Therefore a lack of knowledge can cause lack of personal power, and we’ve all heard the term “only the strong survive”.
The main step to empowering yourself is to identify what disempowers you in the first place. Due to the ego’s involvement, this is no easy task! However, your handwriting results will identify these things for you, so you don’t have to.
As an individual with no emotional attachments to your life or outcomes, I am much more objective than you are and, when you read your full personality profile, your subconscious shows me what is going on in your world. More than that, it tells me what your life has been like since birth and how traumatic or otherwise notable other people, places, events, and situations have affected your mind, personality, fears, successes, failures, etc.
How does it work?
Your brain perceives handwriting as a language, which is both written and spoken. The #1 activity which fires up the most brain neurons is language, # 2 is the act of handwriting. Your brain also sees your handwriting as a smorgasbord of symbols that only the physical act of writing can comprehend. Just like exercises for your physical body, making specific graphological changes are exercises for your mind and subconscious.
Let me ask you something: “Do you journal?”
You may know that journaling has been around for over 100 years, during which time a version of journaling has been recommended by most psychologists around the globe for nearly as long. However, you may not know that if you are creating unhealthy letter shapes, there is only so much “therapy” journaling can do.
Specifically changing your letter shapes, such as those suggested in Clinical Graphology, takes journaling to a whole new level. You see, by making specific graphological changes tailored to your unique personality, you are…​
  • Opening your inner wisdom
  • Cleansing emotional blocks
  • Producing or furthering radical change from the subconscious to the conscious (and superconscious)
  • Becoming free from confusion and doubt
  • Gaining clarity
  • Discovering your passions and purpose
  • Journeying from the “old you” to the “new you” which is has a strong ethereal component
You see, handwriting is much more than pen and paper and involves much more than just writing stuff down. It is a revolution of yourself; an inspiration acquired by releasing doubts and fears so you can shine. Writing with the purpose of enhancing your life is an act of self-love; a safe place to get to know yourself, to discover who you really are, and to become the “you” you wish to be. Many lose their personal power by purely living in a confusing world that infiltrates their minds with status quo, social expectations, judgments, false beliefs, rants, biases, injustices, victimization, and more.
The act of handwriting releases the deep answers that you have within your subconscious and allows you to connect and bond with your inner self (aka: inner child) in a way never before attempted or accomplished.
I know you are thinking: “With technology, does anyone write anymore?” The answer is we never stopped writing, we just write differently. In other words, in years gone by, we wrote phone numbers, drew maps, and wrote out directions. We wrote personal cards and letters and updated our calendars. Now we jot down to-do notes, email addresses, and GPS coordinates. After all, when you drive by a billboard or see a store you wish to remember at a later date, you likely don’t pull over and park on the side of the road, only to set up your laptop, and email the information to yourself. You can also get in an accident or get a high-priced traffic ticket and fine for using your cell phone when driving.
Instead we usually scribble on whatever is closest to us such as that fast food bag on the passenger seat.
While we are on the topic of technology, think of your brain as a computer. Your brain is part of your body’s electrical system (Central Nervous System). Like the “bites” in your computer, your brain has 10+ billion nerve cells which control the signals sent to the brain. The brain then sends chemicals to your muscles.
When we learn to write cursive as a child, it’s like developing “empathy steroids”. Why, or perhaps how? Because the first letter on the paper represents you. The next letter represents other people. Same with the first, and consecutive words. So, when you connect letters, you are connecting to other people. Even if we haven’t written in cursive since 6th grade, the key is we learned, connected, and therefore built empathy.
In my Master’s program, I wrote a research paper and looked up the dates when the states in the USA stopped teaching cursive. I then compared those dates to their local crime statistics. I cannot say there is a direct cause and affect, but I can definitely say there is a disturbing correlation. I used these statistics in my speech below.
WATCH MY Ted Talk Presentation…

When you write, signals are transmitted between your brain and hand through the brain stem, into the spinal column, along the central nervous system and into your muscles. This is what enables you to pick up your pen and write. Therefore, when you make specific and strategic graphological changes, you are sending new signals in reverse – from the pen back to the brain – with new instructions until the changes become habitual.
Therefore, because there is a close connection between what we tell ourselves and how we feel – and what we believe our reality to be – it is important to realize that every strategic handwriting change has a core thought message that is integrated into the exercise. Again, these flow from pen -> hand -> brain and back again, which then become internalized and integrated into a new belief pattern. That is the power behind reprogramming the brain’s neurological connections.
When I worked at the high school during my practicum, I was a Behavioral Specialist in the Special Needs (S.N.) department. With the parents and psychologists permission, I put many of the S.N. kids through CG and, within 30 days, their focus was better. Within 45 days their grades were better and, at the end of the six month program, most no longer tested as S.N. at all. When I brought it to the school’s attention, they were very displeased.
Why? Because schools get paid more for S.N. students.
Remember when you were in school or college? Just think of how much easier it note-taking by hand helped us remember the information better. The brain recalls handwriting changes in much the same way.
In both the S.N. and non-S.N. students, I watched the school pass them to the next grade and even allow them to graduate – even when they only had a 2nd grade (equivalent) education. They justified this shameless act by saying such things as, “We are graduating him because he did not put forth any effort and the teachers are frustrated”. Wonder what will happen when this student tries to fill out a job application, or has to read and sign a contract, or lease his first apartment.
Empathy is almost a thing of the past with our youth.
By not teaching proper handwriting styles in schools, we are removing a significant amount of the ability for kids to develop empathy. In addition, we are dumbing down our society. After all, these now “dumb, disrespectful, unempathetic” youth will one day be running our country when we are too damn old to do anything about it.  (WHAT A SCARY THOUGHT!!)  Perhaps the “dumbing down” is the current Government’s plan?
Either way, I cannot tell you how much of the below information from Carlos Mencia was 100% TRUE as witnessed first hand by me… (minus the insults)…
carlos1
Schools stopped teaching  handwriting due to typewriters starting in 1973, then it was wordprocessors, and now computers. So why not take away math classes because of calculators?
Ridiculous isn’t it?
Many have removed art and music classes too. I mean, why bother… these are only two more of the most helpful things for healing and emotional intelligence.
Then in college, we are forced to take a bunch of bullsh*t classes that have absolutely nothing to do with our career goals. So we graduate college with a $100,000+++ loan that we can never pay back because we can only get a measly $16 / hour job with a Master’s degree and 20 years of experience. When a high school graduate with no college can make that in fast food and grocery industries, why would our youth ever consider college?
To make matters worse, the Department of Education’s loan servicers want $1400+ / month. Yeah, okay. Realistically, we could have only had a $30,000 student loan without the unnecessary, bullsh*t classes. Just think of how much money would have already been paid back!
carlos2
I mention all that because I think we could likely agree that these things have suffocated and stressed our society’s infrastructure. In short, that’s all just examples of  f*cked-up reasoning.
If you ask me, the entire school system across the USA should be scrapped and the handwriting class curriculum should be rebuilt by handwriting therapists (those with significant training in both handwriting and psychology!!). For the rest of the classes, each curriculum should be designed in a streamlined approach by other experts in the applicable fields – but only those experts who actually give a damn about society now and for future generations. Instead, historically it’s all been about how much $$$$ they can add to their bureaucratic-lined bank accounts.
… I’m sure you can see how passionate I am about this topic and how important this is for current and future generations!
Now… back to the handwriting info…
A common question I receive by mental health clients is, “You mean all I have to do is change my handwriting and my personality will change too?”
Yes! but to illustrate this more…
I have played piano since I was 4 years old. I did not play for many years, and had to reteach myself. As long as I was consciously thinking about where to place each finger on the keyboard while reading the music, I was able to proceed slowly and sometimes painfully, even though I still made some mistakes. However, after repetitious practice, my fingers responded automatically and permanently while eliminating the mistakes… all without conscious awareness. In other words, once your handwriting changes pass the state of consciousness, the changes become automatic, permanent and habitual.
I know, “changing handwriting to effect behavioral changes” sounds too simple to be true theoretically. However in application, it is deeply profound and requires a strong self-commitment. It is definitely not easy, but it is very powerful.
In closing, whether you choose my evidence-based CG program as an option or not, I urge you to consider the other various options of taking a deep-sea dive into your own mind. Then if you decide to seek therapy elsewhere, show the reports to your therapist. This not only will streamline your treatment plan but it will also save you a lot of time and money!
Just please do not use your insurance for any mental health treatment, here’s why.

Who Doesn’t Know You Love Them?

No one ever went to the grave wishing to have loved LESS.

Only unfounded fear prevents us from sharing our heart’s truth with those who nurture and inspire us.

So don’t wait another minute…

Make a list of all the people you love.

Let the term “love” be flexible enough to encompass every person who is important to you at your essence, whether your specific feelings are romantic, familial, platonic, collegian, or spiritual.

Next, begin letting all the people on your list know how deeply they are valued. 

Please understand that this gift of love bestows as much upon you as it does them.

You don’t have to wait for birthdays, or your anniversary, their graduation, marriage, baby announcement, or even Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Valentine’s Day to do or say something extra-special.

In fact, today is the perfect day.

Psychology of Internet Bullies

Because of my former assistant, Darlene’s mistake on July 1, 2019, I was personally victimized by internet bullies, and malicious haters and trolls across all of my social media account but especially Twitter and Goodreads. Ironically, Darlene had not even mentioned this main cyberbullying, troll, hater by name (CM), so I’m not even sure why CM immediately took ownership of Darlene’s anonymous post.

But, because I usually choose to walk the high-road, once I saw the Twitter exchange, I privately emailed CM and apologized for Darlene’s post (which I haven’t even seen), and informed CM that I terminated Darlene (which I did).

Literally, CM and her equally-malicious followers spent hours of their day with nothing better to do than to berate me for something I literally had no knowledge of. It may have been different if we shared an office. But we both work from home and she lives across the United States from me.

It is my fault however, that I didn’t micromanage Darlene. Proof of my error is that I had absolutely no knowledge of what Darlene was doing on social media (which may be why she mentioned me in her seemingly-offensive post but did not tag me (so I wasn’t flagged). Had she tagged me, I would have demanded she take it down. I only found out about it after a couple of my collaborating authors in the GBF series alerted me.

However, I’m sure I’m not the only employer who had a very trusted employee in which we felt micromanaging was not necessary. Afterall, she had been with me for 9 years and I never had a problem other than a couple reports about her being a bit sarcastic. But a couple reports in 9 years is hardly enough to warrant police patrol. However, at the time of those reports, I did handle the complaints immediately and, to my knowledge, she had gotten better because I did not receive any more complaints. 

Anyway, what all this cyberbullying did was cause my volunteer-writers-only Girl Behind the Fence (GBF) series to be cancelled (and authors are very sad), my social media accounts to be shut down, and I physically and emotionally withdrew. I shut off the phone, emails, put on my pajamas, and spent 13 hours nursing symptoms such as a horrendous migraine. Yet during that time, I was able to repeatedly reassess everything that had gone on. When I turned my phone back on, I received a notice that Darlene had called and left an apology message.

((I once wrote a blog post about how “professional badmouthing says more about the talker” than it does about the talker’s target but I can’t locate the post anymore. If I can find a copy of it, I’ll republish it. However, it’s true)).

Anyway, in the process of reassessing things, I decided to do some research on the mentality behind online bullies, malicious trolls, and professional haters such as CM and her sidekicks.

This is what I found… 

A research team from the School of Health and Life Sciences at Federation University in Australia carried out a study to analyze the personality traits of these kinds of people. They discovered they actually scored much higher than others in two important personality traits: psychopathy and cognitive empathy. 

What does that mean?

Psychologist Dr. Robert Hare has been researching psychopathy for more than 30 years and he stated: psychopaths are easily bored, need constant stimulation, and are unable to set long-term goals. They’re manipulative and need to feel like they have power and control over others. Psychopaths also have narcissistic traitsSure seems to sum-up CM and her sidekicks the 1st week of July. Who else would spend nearly a full 24-hours wasting time trying to sabotage little ole’ me for trying to help our readers heal from destructive attitudes, beliefs, emotions, thoughts, etc?

According to Dr. Hare and the study, these people have serious impulse control problems and react with anger. Individuals with this disorder have problems with social and moral norms (abnormal). However, they’re often superficially charming (fake) and seem well-adjusted (keyword: seem).

Psychopaths think highly of themselves. Inflicting pain on others gives them pleasure. It’s often said that psychopaths lack empathy”, but that’s not exactly true and here’s why… 

The study also reveals the “dark side of empathy”…

Emotional empathy and cognitive empathy are both cognitive processes. However, there are significant differences between them involving the activation of different parts of the brain. 

You can read the complete study / article HERE but let me first share this about the “dark side of empathy” per the article.

There’s a kind of “cold” empathy that is not as well known but online evil-doers have high levels of it. In other words, these online bullies, trolls, and haters can identify someone else’s suffering, but they don’t feel it. In fact, they are able to predict and recognize their victim’s emotional suffering. They then deliberately use their knowledge to cause the most damage possible. 

They often don’t even read people’s posts or they just skim them and reinterpret them to fit their motives. (This is exactly what CM and her sidekicks did). 

Again, it sure seems to sum-up CM and her sidekicks, and what they attempted and somewhat succeeded in doing to me last week. However, if you pay attention to her page, that’s all she seems to do & enjoy. Here is an example. She likes to “name and shame” without knowing the full story so I decided to “name” her in this post.

How in the world does she have time to write books if she’s always cyberbullying someone or starting shit online? And the genre she writes is romance. That’s very surprising because her personality sure seems far from warm and fuzzy. Perhaps she’d be a more successful author if she wrote murder mysteries, lol.

Now, check this post out!

Oh, and she tried to claim (via Darlen’e post) that I expect professionals to work for free. That’s not true. However, I did ask women who were friends and family members of mine if they would like to write a story to contribute to the GBF series, which was a passion project for me.

In my opinion, there is a big difference between the intention of all people who do things to help others and those who do things to make money. The GBF series was about helping people fulfill goals. For example, the series allowed many women to realize their dream of becoming a published author and, on the flipside, it allowed readers to realize their dream of shifting their mindset so they can break free from things that may be holding them back (ie: anger, anxiety, codependency, loneliness, etc.)

Update as of 7/18/19:

At first, I was emotional and had become so tired of fighting against jerks, bullies, and downright a-holes all of my life, that it’s just easier now that I’m older to just quit. But I have never been a “quitter”. I mean, Jesus was tortured and he kept going, so my “pain” seemed a whole lot more bearable.

So, after my much-needed break to think everything through, I realized that CM et al (those who caused all of the above) are just mere, tiny specks in a world of billions of specks. I never heard of them before this “situation”, so why should I let them put a stop to my passion project that could help millions of women across the world? They judgement upon me should not reflect my judgement upon myself so…

I have decided to be like a Phoenix once again and rise-up from the ashes. Therefore, the GBF series is once again “on” and it will continue until all of the series books are published as originally scheduled. I will see this project through to the end because it’s what I want to do. Ladies, if you’d like to participate in the GBF series, check this out.

Now my only question is… since Darlene wants her position back, do I rehire her ? Did I terminate her due to my emotional upheaval? I do know that, had this “online harrassment” with CM and her groupies not occurred, Darlene would’ve never been terminated.

What are your thoughts?

still-i-rise-you-may-shoot-me-with-your-words-22858715

In closing, while there aren’t any studies on how to stop trolls, ignoring their attacks seems to be the best way to avoid giving them more power.

So from this point forward, that’s what I’m going to do.

Never Use Insurance for Mental Health Treatment. Here’s Why…

I have been in my field of forensics and mental health for over 30 years. Some of my experience was as a Sexual Assault Advocate, Domestic Violence & Anger Management Group Facilitator, Crisis Therapist, Clinical Liaison for a Regional Behavioral Health Authority (RBHA) for the Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI) adult population, a Forensic Mental Health Professional (FMHP) in jails and prisons, and have been a supervisor of over a dozen trauma therapists for 10+ years. I am only telling you this bit of bio information so you can feel confident that I am qualified to tell it like it is. You see, one thing I witnessed consistently was how using insurance to pay for mental health treatment screws the client over in many ways. Therefore I decided to write this blog and, although it is more of an article than a blog post, I am confident you will agree that sharing this knowledge is much more important than length.

However, I am not only writing it to share with you – my blog readers – but also to help educate my agency’s prospective private CG clients who often ask “Why don’t you accept insurance?”

The SHORT answer is “BECAUSE I CARE”.

The LONG technical, “let-me-count-the-reasons” answer is below…

In order for anyone to use their insurance for mental health treatment (or get reimbursed), the therapist is required to diagnose (“label”) them. Why is that an issue? Because most people do not want their “label” to be part of their permanent, official records which follows them everywhere.

CASE: I remember Lora, a 27-year-old Caucasian female who, within a 3-week time-frame was laid-off from her job of 12 years, her car was repossessed, her husband had an affair and moved out, and she lost her home in the 2008 housing crash. In addition she was now facing a divorce and trying to raise a set of 3-year-old twins on her own. When she came into the county’s mental health clinic with an emotional breakdown, she was depressed, her anxiety was uncontrollable, she gave temporary custody of her children to her mother, and she was having suicidal thoughts.

Her employer-paid insurance was still active until the end of the month and, because she had insurance, Jerry (the therapist), “labeled” her Bi-Polar with Adjustment Disorder  just so he could bill her insurance (get paid).

While Jerry was doing what he was supposed to do, I personally had an issue with this and ethically disagreed with the process. I mean, who wouldn’t have a breakdown and act “bi-polar” with all that hitting our life at once? Who wouldn’t have a difficult time “adjusting” to all of that?

When the dust settled, and she was reemployed, worked it out with her husband, found a great apartment, and obtained the gift of a car from her parents… she was “normal”. In fact, she had not presented with “bipolar” symptoms of any kind before or after that one instance. But, because it was now “officially” on her permanent record, every provider and insurance company (including life insurance) will be essentially told that she was diagnosed “Bipolar with adjustment disorder” and nobody can remove it.

For the rest of her life this label will follow her everywhere which can affect her eligibility of many things… all because she had a shitty three weeks.

That brings me to…

Now let’s say you wish to use insurance to pay for mental health treatment… because your insurance company is paying for it, they have a legal right to look in your records whenever they want to.

That means any representative of the insurance company will be able to see all of your private information – the traumas, the emotions, the “skeletons in the closet”, and more. In other words, if the insurance company tells the receptionist to audit your file, that $10 / hour receptionist has access to it all. Let’s hope it doesn’t become the topic of her Facebook page.

Then let’s not forget about the others involved in this process… when Jerry submitted Lora’s documentation to the insurance company, others saw the nitty-gritty details too, such as the mail clerk who opens and disperses to the appropriate department, the case manager, the processor, the peer reviewers, the customer service reps, and, if not disposed of properly (and many aren’t), even the cleaning people. In other words, HIPAA does not totally keep your information confidential.

Also, if you ever have to go court like Lora did… divorce, custody hearings, or as a witness, the “legal beagles” have a right to request all of your records and especially mental health records… and they will. Finally, there is not typically a statute of limitations on mental health diagnoses so, once entered into the Medical Information Bureau (MIB) and other systems, it becomes a “pre-existing illness”. My husband sells life insurance, and has for over 20 years. He has seen many people get turned down for situations like Lora’s… even for small policies. 

CASE: let me tell you about one of my husband’s most recent clients, Moses. Moses had sought coverage from his Employer Assistance Program (EAP) because his child, age 14, had committed suicide. He was clearly and understandably troubled with grief and yet the insurance company labeled him with “Generalized Anxiety Disorder” and because it was not one of the “covered services” (not a drastic or severe enough label), they would not cover it. Instead, he was slapped with the rejected EAP bill of over $15,000 and a collection agency from hell who was making his life miserable. In fact, one collection agent even told him to pawn his wedding ring to make a payment to them!

Yet still, the label / diagnosis was placed in his permanent record and listed in the MIB, which then caused him to be turned him down for life insurance. BTW – in case you are unaware, everyone who has ever gone to any doctor has a file in the Medical Information Bureau.

That brings me to…

* Even if your therapist highly recommends a 6-month program and you agree… if the insurance company representative (yes, even the receptionist) decides you only need a 2-month program, that is all you will get… unless you pay out of pocketThe only hope here is that the insurance company can be convinced that the 6-month program is medically -necessary (unfortunately that usually takes a small miracle or act of Congress to do). 

That brings me to…

Even if the insurance company approves the 6-month regimen, they will rarely pay the full amount and you will be surprise-attacked when the mailman delivers a multi-thousand dollar bill.

So… be prepared to fight for it because insurance companies have often told mental health clients that something is covered and then, after they receive the treatment, the insurance company denies it anyway. This can interrupt your treatment and impact your credit, bank account, stress levels, emotions, and much more, even undoing the very things you sought treatment for. So… what are your options or choices?

Pay cash for your sessions to assure that your records are completely confidential.  You can then have the amount of treatment that is best for you and your future.

If you cannot afford your payments, there are agencies who offer sliding-fee scales and payment plans.

If you must use insurance, try to avoid in-network providers and, instead try to use a PPO so you can pre-pay and then get reimbursed, which will help just a little bit with confidentiality and the other points above. Again… just a little bit.

However, be advised that many insurance companies will not give you a choice when it comes to which therapist you choose. This has it’s separate drawbacks too such as compatibility, ability to trust and build rapport with your therapist, etc. I mean, ever met someone you instinctively-for-no-obvious-reason didn’t particularly like? That happens with therapists too. If you don’t jive with your therapist, the outcome of your treatment will be disappointing.

Added bonus for self-pay: many times paying out of pocket can be tax deductible.

From a professional viewpoint… most quality therapists rarely take insurance. Okay, I am not saying that there are NO good therapists or psychologists out there who do take insurance – there are.  However, when comparing supply & demand, only those who are busy (which equates to successful in this case) will not accept insurance.

Why? Because with all the headache of paperwork, submitting billings, arguing with insurance companies on your behalf, filling out more paperwork, resubmitting billings, etc…. for an average of 7-10 extra hours per month behind the scenes perclient, this results in your therapist making minimum wage.

Typically only those who need the clients will sign up for all of that hassle, even though they know that doing so is usually not in their client’s best interest!  Therapists who are not full of clients will be happy to jump through the red tape just to make some money and get their name out there. However, once they are busy, almost always they will stop accepting insurance.

How do I know? Because when I started out, that was me. 

I needed the clients and was going to accept insurance. I was willing to stay up all day / night for a week to get all pre-client requirements done but...

That’s not all…

Many insurance companies will not accept new providers (therapists) and, even if they do, they rarely pay anything. The amount they do pay equals 40% of the total cost on average and again – to get that 40% payment, therapists have to spend 7 – 10 extra hours behind-the-scenes fighting for their money. That takes time away from serving clients (the very reason we went into the career field).

So hopefully you can see that insurance is beneficial for your cell phone, pets, physical health, your home and business, your car, and your life… but not so much for your mind.

One final piece of advice… creating any kind of change in your life requires a commitment.. an action step of some kind. When you pay for your own therapy out of pocket (action step), you  are more committed to following-through because you have more to lose if you don’t.

This is a great way to hold yourself accountable.

Looking for evidence-based, home-based and powerful therapy (without meds, diagnosis, and testing) and with affordable cost and payment plan options?

If so, you are in the right place and can start right now.

In fact, even the famous psychiatrist Daniel Amen verifies why we have said since 1987 that “talk therapy” is not the way to life-changing transformation nor are “psych meds”…. watch his video below. 

amenThis is why the CG program is successful & uniquely tailored for each of our thousands of worldwide clients… and has been since 1987.

No matter what you decide, it is important to know the above so you can make an informed decision when it comes to your short-term and long-term mental health goals. Equally important is how using insurance for your therapy can affect you when you want to purchase items or receive services that are not related to mental health.

Please understand that other types of insurance is very valuable. In fact, if you are an employer who cares, or have loved ones you’d like to protect for future generations, my husband can help you with that.

SCAM ALERT: $350 for a Survey

Watch and share the below video that I did of a scam stating they would pay $350 to complete a store survey. Ever heard of “gift card scams” or “money laundering schemes”? You’ll definitely want to keep reading & watching…

I also sent all evidence to the law enforcement agencies who oversee these types of scams. If you receive this, please report it to these agencies (and more as applicable).

Reputable companies very rarely use a generic email extension (ie: gmail, hotmail, yahoo, aol, etc.). Most reputable companies use their company name such as bugs@bugsareus.com

FOR THIS SCAM:

The email says it’s from “Paul” and the letter inside said it’s from “Paul Philips” from “A-Class Survey” with phone number 443-356-6525. The email they use is aclasssurvey@gmail.com

The return label on the USPS priority mail envelope says it’s from:

  • Solano Lawton 
  • (hmmm… where’s Paul?)
  • 729 Jefferson St.
  • Fairfield, CA  94533-5511

**** CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW VIDEO ****

The $2,375.90 cashier’s check was from Independent Bank” in McKinney, Texas”

** WATCH & SHARE THIS VIDEO TO AVOID GOING TO JAIL **

** THIS guy scams the scammers (legally).

** THIS person almost fell for a scam.

UPDATE as of 7/27/19:  today my daughter received the same thing but some details were different. Her Priority Mail envelope was from “Richard Hepner, 81 Nightingale Ave, # R2, Quincy, MA 02169-6413” and the bank was “Centris Federal Credit Union, 11825 Q. St., Omaha, NE 68137-3503” and listed on the bottom of the fake check that the “Remitter: Edna Gustos”. Everything else was the same.

Have you received a similar letter? What names & banking institutions does yours say? Let’s keep updating this so we can spread the education and awareness. Please don’t forget to report it so these criminals and scam artists can be prosecuted.
