Jason Elliott Clark, aka Jason E Clark, Jason Clark, Graham Newmarch, Terry McClosky
is a sociopath who has swindled dozens of women out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in Minnesota and Virginia. He was in jail for felony identity theft in Virginia and again in Minnesota, but incarceration has not stopped him from preying upon innocent, trusting women in the Twin Cities and elsewhere. He has fathered 5 children with 5 different women, lying to each of them that he had cancer and cannot father a child. Once pregnant and vulnerable, he builds a woman's trust in him by promising support, love, and even marriage. This posting is a warning to all who encounter him.

If you question what is written here and elsewhere on the internet about Jason Elliott Clark, background check him at the Minnesota Judicial Branch website for free. You will find that he owes multiple women child support, has numerous civil judgments against him for opening credit card accounts in women's names, theft by swindle, etc. and that he was convicted of felony identity theft and continues to commit these crimes. He is a very convincing liar, and as a sociopath, it is highly unlikely that he can ever be rehabilitated even if he wanted cease his criminal and immoral behavior. Do not believe anything he says, no matter how sympathetic or remorseful he appears to be. He has not changed, despite recent exposure of his crimes on the internet and in the Twin Cities area. He is currently keeping a low profile, but all evidence suggests that it is simply a matter of time before there is a another victim. Don't let it be you. Keep reading if you're not convinced.

According to his sister, Jason Clark has been speaking with a fake British accent since high school, because "it made getting a woman easier for him." This technique eventually transformed into an elaborate lie that he was born in Wales, and his parents are well-off business people, particularly his mother, who lives in Germany. He creates a complex web of stories that are difficult to penetrate or disprove because he is such a skilled liar, and because he claims that his whole family lives in Europe.

He claims to be well-educated with a Master's Degree in Environmental Sciences, but this is a lie, as is virtually everything he will tell you. He claims to be a consultant, and that's why his employment history can't be tracked. He garners sympathy from women in telling them about his sad upbringing, the child of a single mom, his father abandoned him at age four and all but disappeared. He claims to have had melanoma and moved to Minnesota for treatment at the Mayo Clinic. This is all a lie. He was never a cancer patient anywhere, he was born in Minnesota, and there is no evidence that he has traveled outside the U.S.

Jason Elliott Clark is a vicious misogynist. He finds pleasure in causing women pain, humiliation, and has physically abused at least one woman, according to Ramsey County records. He only preys on women, and uses his male friends as proxies for his cruel deeds. Some of them know he is lying to infiltrate a woman's life, get access to her credit, get her pregnant and dependent on him, and game her for as long as it is profitable for him. He gets off on the idea that he has impregnated a woman, as it makes him feel powerful and important, and the woman vulnerable and distracted from what he is truly doing to her. He wins money from sports gambling or steals it from other women, and buys the expectant mother maternity clothes, cooks her nice dinners, and offers to marry her. He seems generous with gifts to her friends and family, but he is simply laying the foundation for his scheme.

The women he deceives are usually educated with professional careers, and these are chosen as the mothers. Other women: restaurant servers, massage therapists, hair stylists and other service professions are used for sex and potentially for their good credit scores as a way to finance his more "paternal" and choice scams.

Jason Clark is the classic sociopath: glib and cunning, a brilliant liar, charming and funny, he becomes furious over insignificant issues, and seems unaffected by what would upset a genuine person. Jason is a narcissist who lives only to fulfill his own selfish needs for money, attention, and admiration. He is a good actor, and because he lacks the discipline and focus required to actually make a profession of it, he has turned his life into a series of false roles that make him the center of attention. If you google his name in quotes, he comes up on a playlist for the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis as does his father, Preston Crews. It has been reported that his father also speaks with an affected accent, as does his sister, Sabrina Crews, who apparently is an actual aspiring actress.

When a woman discovers his duplicity, particularly if she is the mother of one of his children, she has no choice but to rid her life of this amoral criminal. Jason Elliott Clark owes a woman in Virginia, W.C., the mother of his first child, over $60,000 in child support. He punishes women for simply protecting themselves from him by not providing financial support. He has fathered four other children and Minnesota, shunning all of them because the woman has called his bluff and refuses him access to the child.

Not one woman has allowed him visitation due to his criminal behavior and lies. K.P., the mother of one of his sons, is owed over $10,000 in child support. Another son has severe disabilities, and Jason not given him any financial support. His youngest son is two, and the mother lost her home, savings, and owes more than $100,000 because Jason Clark forged cash advance checks on her credit card accounts. He has not provided support for this youngest child, even though he participated in raising him for 18 months before the mother discovered his lies and deceit.

Jason Clark swindled a woman, Rebecca K. of Arden Hills, MN who was unfortunate enough to enter into a "business partnership" with him, of over $300,000 in a restaurant venture. Instead of opening the business in good faith, he stole money from her and funneled it into buying expensive cars, jewelry, and a condo for himself and the mother of his youngest child. When Rebecca discovered his deceit, she demanded repayment, and Jason then turned to stealing from the mother of his child instead to maintain his lavish lifestyle and finance his affairs with other women: expensive hotel rooms, sporting events, dinners, expensive clothes and gifts, and so forth. Rebecca was forced to sell her $700,000 home for $580,000, and for reasons unknown, she refuses to press charges against him.

If you encounter Jason Elliott Clark, do not get believe any explanation he offers for his criminal record, this Rip Off report, the post of him on Don't Date Him Girl.com, the forum that appeared as a result of a newspaper article about him opening a restaurant. He has lie after lie prepared to fool you into trusting him. Do your own background check, and walk away from him. I am a reporter who is interested in doing a story on Jason, and I have verified all of what is written here.

Revised

AUTHOR: Alias Aramark - ()

Clark is already released.

When you look on the BOP website, don't be confused by RRC in Minneapolis.

What matters is he's no longer in prison.

 

Isn't this site geared toward reporting bad businesses?

In its place ...?

Sabrina Crews is an aspiring actress

AUTHOR: I hate liars - ()

Sabrina Crews claims that she is not an aspiring actress, but she "has done theater" and actually did a voice for a PBS cartoon series, was in the theater program at the U of M, and has recently worked as a professional actor in the Twin Cities.  In fact, in 2012, she was in a production as follows while she worked in underwriting for KFAI:

 

You can catch underwriting director Sabrina Crews in "The Lark," 
which opens Friday, February 10th, at Theater in the Round. Sabrina 
tells us more about her role:

Sabrina says in the press (City Pages):

>I play French historical figure Agnes Sorel in Lillian Hellman's 
>adaptation of "The Lark", at Theatre In the Round.

I believe that participating as an actress in theater productions at the U while attending school there, working as a professional voiceover actress for PBS and being a professional actress in local theater qualifies someone as an "aspiring actress."  However, she claims here that she is not.  Like her con artist brother Jason Elliott Clark, Sabrina Crews, also going by "Sabrina Faydra" on Facebook, appears to be liar when she denies that she is an actor.  That's what Jason is best at: looking at someone in the face, and telling them a blatent lie.  Guess this lying impulse runs readily in their family.

Jason E Clark the Scam Artist

AUTHOR: Tom - ()

I went to Patrick Henry High School with Jason and he was developing his fake British accent even back then! Then in 2009, at the high of his scams, he even contacted me while I was in Bulgaria on business and tried to get me in to invest in his fake restaurant, "A Knight's Tale" (which never even opened, I think) and via which he was extorting many women out of their life savings. I'm glad he at least got a four year prison sentence for all of his scams, but you can bet that as soon as he's out in the Fall of 2014, he's be right back to them!

Factual Errors Here

AUTHOR: Sabrina Crews - (United States of America)

Hello, I'm Sabrina. I am not an aspiring actress (although I have done theater), and I do not speak with an affected accent. I am Jason's much younger half-sister but I barely know him. It was pointless to mention me at all in this report, and again, what's reported here is inaccurate. Still, this is one of the first links to surface when anyone (that includes potential employers!) types my name into a search engine. I'm amazed that this article, a report that attempts to set the record straight, contains such inaccuracies. I take it you're not a journalist, Lady Justice, so neglecting to fact-check your statements may strike you as insignificant, but false reporting is an egregious offense. From what I understand, this report was published to prevent more women from becoming victims of Jason's ruthlessness, and yet ironically, it has set me up to be one. I'm very hurt and angry. There's no need for the public to know about the lies you've unintentionally told about me. There's a word for this, and it's called defamation. Defamation isn't just offensive, it's illegal. If you have anything more to say about me, tell it TO me instead, and in private (You can google search me and find my contact information quite easily). I cringe to think of what you've been though. You couldn't have written this without experiencing Jason's destructive behavior firsthand. But open your eyes and realize you aren't the only innocent victim here. You're victimizing others with your own anger and bitterness. And that ain't justice.

#6 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Aramark- Background Check?

AUTHOR: mrmiscellaneous - (United States of America)

Jason was hired by an Aramark location in Maplewood, MN and was employed from January to May 2011. While there he made various excuses for his absences, including a 'shoulder injury' in February during the same time of his conviction. He disappeared in late May 2011 which turned out to be because the police had taken custody of him.

This user worked with Jason and noticed inaccuracies of his "British" accent, but assumed he spoke a dialect this user was not aware of.

Aramark has a strict policy that every applicant be given a full background check after passing a drug test before being hired.

This user finds it difficult to see how Jason could have been given a background check, when a simple googling of his name will lead to evidence that he is and has been a criminal, much less a several-hundred dollar background check.

Jason Elliott Clark convicted and sentenced to 4 years in Federal Prison

AUTHOR: Lady justice - (U.S.A.)

Jason Elliott Clark was tried and convicted on February 18, 2011 to 48 months in federal prison for identity theft, bank fraud and bank fraud conspiracy.  He is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2014.  The Justice Department Press release can be found here:

www.justice.gov/usao/mn/press/feb026.pdf

With regard to the complaint posted by "Joseph" and "SRC" about the address posted on this report, it is impossible to edit content after it is posted on Rip Off.  Nothing can be changed or removed once it is posted.  It is suggested that you complain directly to the website if it is such a problem.  So let it be known that Clark doesn't live at this address in St. Paul.  Why don't you post yourself that he never lived there and won't ever live there, if that's the case?  That is all that can be done.  There is no "malice" or "cruelty" intended.  It was his only listed permanently address where he received mail, and the public had a right to know.  That's all.

MyPersonal Address falsley appears on this Report!

AUTHOR: Joseph - (U.S.A.)

I want to know why my Personal Home Address appears on this report titled "Jason Elliott Clark"
He has never lived here, I have been here 9 years and I am afraid for my safety and family's safety that some one could be this cruel and vindictive, and blatantly put my address out there.
I am reading that one of the guidlines is NO personal Home Addresses.
Please remove this from the report.
 Who is this person that calls herself lady justice?

Thank You, SRC

March 2010 Update on Jason Clark

AUTHOR: Lady justice - (U.S.A.)

Another RipOff Report has been filed in the "Deadbeat Dads" section # 582800 under the author "KW" however his name is misspelled with only one "t" in Elliott, so it does not come up when you google search Jason Elliott Clark. 

Clark presently has no employment, no permanent address and continues to evade and ignore the court ordered mandates to pay child support for three of the children he has produced.  He is a menace to society.  If you meet him and are tempted to get involved, spend $40 run a professional background check on him.  A small invesment could save your life.
