Six months my book Halftime Hustler was released and since then all hell has broken loose. I was aware that I would face challenges due to the fact that I so openly shared so many personal things about my past and time in prison but nothing prepared me for what actually ensued.
Within weeks, Ripoff.com appeared. From there it has spiraled to include others such as Topix forum, Cheatersville.com, scam alerts in my residential community, and probably a host of others I am not yet aware of. I did not understand at first what triggered this but after months of careful investigation with the help of acquainstances, I uncovered some interesting but devastating findings. Namely, the originating author of these gossip sites is really just one person, my neighbor George F. Semeil. All of the sites are seemingly from a host of people (both male and female) whose locations vary all over the country but the reality is that it's George Semeil posing as these various people to make it seem like there is multitude of people that I have supposedly scammed. [continued below]....
..... While this is alarming, what is even more alarming is that he has not only been masquerading as miscellaneous people but that his given name, George S. Francis is not actually his name! His true name is George F. Semeil!
It's understandable why he does not want to go by his real name because when you look up George F. Semeil you will discover that he himself has many skeletons in his closet. Ironically, as he is busy slandering me and putting down the fact that I served time in my past (even though I openly admit this in my book) he himself served time himself! Not in an ordinary prison though; his time was served in Atascadero State Prison (google www.dsh.ca.gov/Atascader/default.asp) for some info on this. In a nutshell though, the patient population consists of males who "have a mental disability, and pose a threat to others or themselves." The majority of the patient population consists of: mentally ill inmates, mentally disordered offenders, patients who have been found incompetent to stand trial, and patients who have been found not guilty by reason of insanity."
This made it a little more clear why George was spending endless hours locked up in house writing blog after blog on me. At first his posts mainly focused on how I had a past as a con artist and how I am still conning today. He accuses me of scamming those in my community in the name of the non-profit organization for juveniles at risk that I have worked for drama free for over 4 years prior to George.
I initially responded to these posts in self-defense but later realized that the more I responded, the more George Semeil wrote. He then expanded his attacks to now include my family and friends, causing undo stress to anyone associated with me. He has called associates of mine, refusing to give his name or number, and asked about me. If they did not
Hence the fact that George has mental issues. First of all, he is rarely seen in public according to his neighbors. When he is out, it's early in the morning where he will walk the neighborhood carrying a large stick (paranoia???) His "wife" (who turns out to be a relative) is NEVER seen out (control issues???). All his defamatory comments about my living high and driving nice cars stems from jealousy since he owns no property himself (living off others as he accuses me of doing!!!) and on top of that, the home that he so proudly acts like he owns does not even have his name on but rather Concetta Manzano's and is currently in foreclosure.
He demonstrates many of the characteristics of not only paranoia but also OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) in which a person fixates on a particular task (or person in this case). He is also a habitual liar. He actually went as far as filing a restraining order on me for supposedly forcing my way into his home and threatening his families life. Not surprisingly, there was no police report made on the day of this alleged incident and also he did not file the restraining order, his "wife", Concetta Manzano did. His restraining order was denied and on the day of our court appearance re: it, he actually lied under oath about his name being George S. Francis and his "wife" pretended she spoke very little English (his excuse as to why he filled out the paperwork for her on the restraining order). That's peculiar as we had many a conversation on her couch a year and half ago when this "nice little old couple" watched my then 18 month old daughter for a few months. I should have known then what kind of a man I was dealing with when one month we were an hour late picking up my daughter and he called me up and cussed me out claiming I was disrespecting his "wife" and going on a tirade for many minutes.
We parted ways for over a year and a half and it wasn't until October of 2012 when my book was released that I heard from him again, only this time via the internet where he has even called me the "N' word (albeit though through the ficticious name of Helen out of Los Angeles that he created his first Ripoff site on me to slander and sabotage my book and name. I started also getting personal attacks from my E-mail telling me to get out of El Dorado Hills and "RUN WHILE YOU CAN YOU b*****d" This man is sick and need some help before he harms more people that are not aware of his mental issues. He will attack and seem like he is someone else that is believable in his storytelling...He is a real Sociopath.
In conclusion, this posting will sure to ignite more hatred and slander from George but reader be ware. Know that this is not real and is simply a twisted "game" this man is playing with me. If you want to know more about me, please visit the many positive sites on me and my book; of course you will need to scroll down past the Ripoff.com reports!
