Welfare Queen Defrauds Government and Netizens

La Femme Nikita has been on a fraudulent PayPal binge lately.

  • Raingods:  $7000
  • Raingods:  an additional $8000
  • Pragmatica:  $9300 (a new record, I believe)
  • Phil Smith:  $1200

What’s the occasion, you might ask?  Nicky has a “chipin” at the bottom of his http://writingsfromthegrave.com page.  He wants donations so he can pay his AOL bill.  Originally, he had no minimum donation, so people started donating a penny.  This filled our boi with TEH RAEG.  So, he now claims that the minimum donation he wants is $20, and for good measure, sent out fraudulent PayPal invoices for thousands of dollars to anyone who sent a donation.

I believe that this sort of crime — and it is a crime — deserves to be reported to PayPal by those who receive these “invoices for services” from Nicky.  One, it’s against the TOS.  Two, it’s, well, criminal fraud.  PayPal is way too eager to freeze accounts when $500 or more is involved, for a perfectly legitimate transaction.  It’s time the company responded in a similar manner when fraud is actually involved.

Aside from that, the Illinois Attorney General might be interested to know that one of the state’s welfare queens is not only not reporting income from his unregistered business, but also is defrauding netizens — and the state itself.

Thanks to Baupdeth, we have a way to do just that:

Let’s see how Nicky deals with an inquiry from the AG.

PayPal Again

I’m not holding my breath, but let’s see what happens.  No fucking way am I paying that bastard four grand for the privilege of making fun of him.  Billing me in that manner is interstate fraud, and a violation of terms of service at PayPal.

Thank you for writing to PayPal regarding the email message you
 received
that appeared to be from eBay. 

As you may have already suspected, this email was not sent by eBay. 
These emails, commonly referred to as spoofs, are sent by fraudulent 
sources posing as eBay in an attempt to collect sensitive financial 
information or passwords. 

Please know that PayPal and eBay are committed to the security of our 
sites and our members. We review every report we receive and forward
 all
vital information on to the appropriate authorities for further action 
and tracking. We work actively and aggressively in partnership with
 many
agencies, ISP's, and law enforcement groups to support their 
investigation of these fraudulent entities. As a public company, we
 rely
on the same agencies you do to pursue these fraudulent activities. You 
may also wish to contact your ISP or email service provider for further

information or instructions.

Now that you have received a spoofed email, your email address has been

collected by a fraudulent source. As a result, you may continue to 
receive spoofed emails for some time as these groups move from ISP to 
web hosting sites setting up fraudulent email addresses, fake sites,
 and
sending spoofed emails. PayPal and eBay have enacted several 
preventative measures and have provided increased information that is 
available on both sites help pages to help educate our members in 
spotting fake emails.  

In the future, we advise you to be very cautious of any email appearing

to be from eBay or PayPal that asks you to submit financial information

such as your credit card number or any type of password. As for eBay, 
they will never ask you for certain financial information such as 
passwords, bank account or credit card numbers, Personal Identification

Numbers (PINs), or Social Security numbers in an email. All sensitive 
information should be submitted on a secure page located on the eBay or

PayPal site.

If you have any doubt about whether an email message is from PayPal, 
please forward it immediately to spoof@paypal.com. For eBay spoofed 
emails, please forward those to spoof@ebay.com. Please do not respond
 to
it or click on any of the links in the email message. Please do not 
change the subject line or edit the email in any way. 

If you have already entered sensitive information as mentioned above, 
you should take immediate action to protect your identity and online 
accounts. If you only clicked on a link inside of a spoofed email, you 
may also want to run a security scan on your computer. eBay has a help 
page with valuable information regarding the steps you should take to 
protect yourself. Below is a link to this page:

http://pages.ebay.com/securitycenter/index.html

Once again, thank you for alerting us to the spoofed email you
 received.
Your vigilance helps us ensure that PayPal and eBay remain a safe and 
vibrant online marketplace.

Sincerely,
PayPal Account Review Department
PayPal, an eBay Company

Grammy Speaks

Lovely. We can’t even return from dinner without finding a screed from grammy along with Pacione’s usual crap.

Creating a fake blog which impersonates me is just wrong enough as it is.

It’s a parody site, and makes that very clear right at the top of the page. Mr. Pacione was too cheap to register the domain himself after Janrae let it expire; the parody site is the result. He doesn’t have to read it, and nobody thinks it’s anything but a parody site.

To anyone who is posting and making our telephone number and address public this needs to stop here and now.

I would agree with that, but I’ve ever seen anyone actually post the number–the first nine digits, yes, but not the whole number, and it was someone over on Blogspot. That was not my work.

Have you tried to take care of 2 ill senior citizens?

Has Nick? Nope. He acted as if grandpa’s heart attack was a major inconvenience to his writing “career.”

We do not need to live in fear of our address being made public . . .

Then you’d better keep an eye on where Nicky posts it, Shirley. He did so publicly at Author’s Den. See for yourself. Scroll about halfway down the page. Besides, nobody’s lurking in your bushes; if you really are afraid, then you’re as stupid as Nicky.

This is not Nick’s home.

Then explain that to Nick. He’s claimed more than once that it is his house. I suppose he thinks he’s going to inherit it, but he’s delusional if he thinks the government dole will even cover the cost of property taxes on the place.

Nick only stays here temporarily due to his former roomate.

His former roommate kicked him out because he stopped paying rent. He’d be living under a bridge with the other trolls if it were not for grammy.

Personally, I think grammy’s as delusional as Nicky. She also makes some of the same misspellings and grammatical errors as Nicky, as well as has his penchant for using ultra-long paragraphs.

Shirley, if you read this, I have nothing against you or your husband. I am not the one calling your house. That’s going too far, in my mind. Unless you are willing to keep a tighter rein on Nicky, he’s going to continue to do the sort of things that ultimately do bring you grief (such as sending people death threats and phony PayPal invoices for hundreds or thousands of dollars, both of which are federal offenses), because there are people out there who, unlike me, are not content to merely poke fun at him on our own blogs.

I firmly believe his entire family is in denial about Nicky’s abhorrent, and often illegal, behavior. Mr. Pacione is neither blameless nor innocent in this saga.

Lossil Press

The following quote is from a comment that Mr. Pacione left in his own WordPress blog for Mr. Sevin:

So I don’t appreciate if you went and snagged my original Lossil Press Promotional photo for your little uses of it. You’re lucky I am not sending you a hefty bill because I would be making bank off the people who stole from me.

Did Mr. Pacione start a new company? I thought he ran Lake Fossil Press. Regardless, anything that begins with “loss” is apropos.

Mr. Pacione’s last sentence doesn’t make much sense, although I gather that Mr. Sevin has yet to be presented with a phony PayPal bill. That may change, depending upon Mr. Pacione’s mood.
