SEO Reputation Management at its best!

The Internet via "google" has successfully given at least some warning concerning this ripoff con-artist, soft-voiced manipulator/scammer (and if she ever lives under the same roof with you, you'll get a substantial dose of "let's work it out"; then harassment and psychological threats--especially legal threats, even if subtly given...your living in fear at first, then in disgust...then you try to tune in to the "transcendent" place where "she doesn't matter" while you wait for the eviction process to culminate)!

She will try to make you be the one making her the victim; she will twist things around and try to twist you around her little scammy fingers! She owes over $50,000 in judgments! (some cases haven't posted to the Internet as yet).

It's one of the most bizzare experiences I've ever had. Yes, I was one of the victims...lost money, time, well-being, until I could finally get her out by way of a drawn-out eviction process, indeed losing money and work time and peace of mind in the process. She lived under the same roof with me. I had certain friends stay with or visit me at various times while she languished in her beautiful room for which she was paying no rent, guzzling tons of heating and lighting, staying in her room virtually 24/7 except for occaional grocery or other such visits out.

Eviction included waiting the 60 or so days that it takes for just that: eviction; horrors, 60 or so days when you really want her to leave yesterday. Some people have had to put up with her as long as eight or nine months! The laws must change. She lives in the legal-loopholes -- and puts you in a temporary blackhole in the throes.

And, she never pays judgments, so your money will be gone, gone, gone. She hides behind the "non-profit". Tells that she wants to and "WILL" buy property sometime soon in Arizona (likely at all vicitims' expense, i.e.).

Beware, of course. Below are the websites, put up anonymously, to look at for a shock. If you are a lawyer or consumer advocate or a member of the FBI or D.A.'s Office, please feel free to contact us. We have more to say than what this Report tells.

Indeed, I will be glad to tell you my experiences with her; and other victims will share, too. We would like to see this stopped. This person is a menace to society; a pathological liar; and sociopathic, conscienceless person where she wants it to be like that; and just plain strange.

It is at first difficult to "believe" that she is a "con" - in that she ropes you in, "sweetly" with the backdrop of her do-good non-profit organization that helps former prisoners! Once she's in your dwelling, she'll turn controlling; threatening;and occasionally aggravatingly child-like -- while she rips you off and makes a psychological nightmare for you.

(The woman has got to be sick and/or on some kind of altering drug.)

(I was taken in by the "nice work" she appears to do with the non-profit; and by her so-called desperation to find a place because of "special circumstances".)

TOTAL JUDGMENT: $ 180.00

Plaintiff was also a big victim of Kathleen Patton' rental scams and harassment. She posted a rental ad on Craigslist for temporary leasing in March 2007. Plaintiff moved to a new apartment and sublet her old apartment for a 10 day period to help cover expenses as she was paying double rent for both apartments. Ms. Patton responded to Plaintiff's ad and she ended up moving in under an agreement with Plaintiff that she would only stay for 10 days. Then Plaintiff's real nighmare started. The initial check for $180 which Ms. Patton gave to Plaintiff bounced. Plaintiff asked for payment and Ms. Patton kept saying that she would take care of it at a later day. Plaintiff had to stop by her old apartment several times to discus with her about this "later day". Then Ms. Patton refused to move out even after she signed an agreement that she would leave by the middle of March. She also called Plaintiff all the time asking her to stop by her old place to discuss and work with her about a plan for her to stay longer. Plaintiff advised Ms. Patton that her lease had already expired and she had to move out but she refused to do so.
After Plaintiff told Ms. Patton that she discovered the website listing all of the previous evictions and lawsuits which had been filed against Ms. Patton, she got angry and started calling Plaintiff and leaving her really long threatening messages. Ms. Patton also threatened to sue Plaintiff for contacting people who she didn't want Plaintiff to talk to and accused Plaintiff of using misleading information against her, etc. Ms. Patton's harassment caused Plaintiff severe physical, mental and emotional distress including weight loss and lack of sleep. Plaintiff felt that Ms. Patton took advantage of the fact that she is a foreigner in an attempt to manipulate her and get free rent. Plaintiff had to hire an attorney after Ms. Patton attempted to get Plaintiff into trouble with the property manager for the UCLA student housing complex. Ms. Patton signed an agreement that she would pay Plaintiff $384 for the back rent and vacate the apartment but she only refunded Plaintiff $180 and then refused to pay the rest of the rent money due to Plaintiff or to leave until the UCLA Housing Dept. got involved in the dispute.

UNLAWFUL DETAINER Case No. 07B00186
Courthouse: Van Nuys
TOTAL JUDGMENT: $ 2,161.67

Plaintiff, a Filipino single mother, was living with her 8 year old daughter in North Hollywood in a 2 bedroom apartment at the time of the Unlawful Detainer filing. Kathleen Patton answered Plaintiff's ad on craigslist for a 2 week sublet for $200/wk. Ms. Patton moved into the apartment immediately on November 16, 2006 (the same day that she was evicted from Arash Afsahi's apartment). Ms. Patton gave a false story that she just needed a place to stay for a few days and that she had just moved out of her Marina del Rey townhome as it was being torn down. Ms. Patton didn't move in any furniture and paid $300 in cash for 1 week's rent and $100 security deposit. She delayed on paying the second week's rent stating that she was waiting on funds. She finally provided a $200 check which bounced. Days later Ms. Patton gave Plaintiff $100 cash for the bounced check. After that she paid nothing further for December rent and refused to move. Plaintiff gave Ms. Patton several written notices to move and then stopped staying at the apartment in mid-December as she felt that it was an unsafe environment for herself and her daughter due to Ms. Patton's ongoing harassment. Ms. Patton repeatedly sent Plaintiff harassing and threatening e-mails after Plaintiff discontinued the Internet cable and telephone service in mid-December, claiming that she couldn't generate income without Internet access. Ms. Patton had absolutely no concern for the financial hardship that she caused Plaintiff, a single mother who was unable to cover the entire rent by herself and was then forced to vacate her own apartment in early January. Even after all of the furniture was removed and the utilities were canceled, Ms. Patton still continued to squat in the empty apartment refusing to budge! Plaintiff had to file an Unlawful Detainer action to get Ms. Patton evicted from the apartment and she lost her security deposit. Ms. Patton continued to harass both Plaintiff and Plaintiff's 85 year old landlord by e-mail and phone calls, demanding the laundry room key, mail key and that the utilities be turned back on even though Plaintiff had repeatedly told Ms. Patton that she had returned both the mail room and laundry room keys to the landlord upon vacating the unit. Ms. Patton further harassed the landlord by making a false charge of plumbing problems, which resulted in the landlord being charged $200 by the housing inspector. Ms. Patton also filed a claim against the landlord for the gas being turned off. Ms. Patton then filed retaliatory Small Claims cases against both Plaintiff and the 85 year old landlord claiming in both cases that she suffered damages in the amount of $2,000 because the gas was turned off! Ms. Patton never appeared for the hearing and the cases were dismissed.

2006

Defendant: Kathleen Patton
Plaintiff: Arash Afsahi
Filing Date: 9/29/2006
UNLAWFUL DETAINER Case No. 06X00862
Courthouse: West Los Angeles

Plaintiff was a UCLA student who resided in a West Los Angeles apartment with another student roommate. He had advertised on craigslist for a temporary roommate for a 3 week period during the mid-summer 2006 until a new roommate arrived. Ms. Patton answered his ad on craigslist and agreed to rent the room for $450 for a 3 week period. Ms. Patton gave Plaintiff a false story saying that she had to leave her home and that she was looking to buy a house. Ms. Patton moved into the apartment in the middle of July 2006. Ms. Patton initially paid Plaintiff $100 cash and then paid by check at the end of the first week. After that, she bounced 2 checks so she was given a 3 day notice to pay by cashier's check or money order only. At one point Ms. Patton gave Plaintiff a check for $700 for back rent which he held but was unable to collect on due to insufficient funds. Plaintiff lost about $1,800 in rent and legal/attorney fees. Ms. Patton gave him the usual excuses about waiting on funds for the late rent payments. She was provided with Internet and cable. Ms. Patton refused to move because she hadn't found a place at the end of 3 weeks. After the new roommate arrived, the other male roommate had to sleep on the couch with 3 males and Ms. Patton now occupying the apartment. Ms. Patton attempted to dominate Plaintiff and the other roommates and control everything, complaining about how long they were in the bathroom for, and complaining about TV noise and cleanliness issues. After a few days, Ms. Patton brought multiple plants into the kitchen and left them on the floor. Plaintiff and his roommates told Ms. Patton to get rid of the plants but she refused as she had no place to put them. Ms. Patton threatened to sue them if they moved the plants and the water from the plants attracted ants. Ms. Patton also threatened to get a restraining order against the Plaintiff and his roommates and threatened to call the police for the TV being too loud and complained about a cable cord in the hallway attached to a router. Besides harassing one roommate, Ms. Patton tried to get the other one to do volunteer work for her! Ms. Patton also said that her brother was hospitalized and tried to use that as a delay tactic in the eviction process. Ms. Patton was at home constantly and was in the kitchen late at night making tea and was disruptive to the household. She also threatened to take photos and document certain things in the apartment to use in her defense.

Ms. Patton was evicted by the Sheriff on November 16, 2007, the same day that she moved into Plaintiff Evelyn Diez' apartment. Ms. Patton was reportedly quite upset and self righteous when the Sheriff arrived, trying to claim that she didn't have notice. However, she was aware about the 5 day warning and had kept questioning Plaintiff as to when the Sheriff was arriving. She left her plants for a week and then sent over 2 guys to pick up the plants for her. The guys told Plaintiff that she had hired them through craigslist. Plaintiff asked Ms. Patton if she'd ever been evicted and she lied and denied that she had previous evictions.

Defendant: Kathleen Patton

Filing Date: 5/2/2006
UNLAWFUL DETAINER Case No. 06U00946
Courthouse: Santa Monica
TOTAL JUDGMENT: $ 2,382.84

Kathleen Patton responded to Plaintiffs' craigslist ad and they rented a room in their West Los Angeles home to her on a short term basis for $200 a week. Ms. Patton asked if she could crash on Plaintiffs' couch the first night as she supposedly had been staying on a board member's couch and needed to leave immediately. Ms. Patton gave a false story saying that she had to move out of a townhome that she had been renting in the Marina for the past 4 years as the building was being turned into a tower and that she only needed the room for a few days until escrow closed on a townhome that she and her separated husband were purchasing for $700,000 in the Marina. She was actually evicted by Legacy Partners in 2005 from the Marina del Rey apartment. She also stated that she was the Director of a non-profit called Crossing the Digital Divide and she showed Plaintiffs her web site.

Two weeks after Ms. Patton moved in, Plaintiffs gave her written notice to move. Ms. Patton refused to move out saying that she had no place to go and she continued to use Plaintiffs' landline, running up toll charges, forcing Plaintiffs to permanently unplug the phone to prevent further toll charges. Ms. Patton gave another false story saying that she had rented a one bedroom Santa Monica apartment which would be ready in a week and she asked if she could pay only partial rent in order to pay off the security deposit on the apartment. Ms. Patton signed a written agreement that she would vacate the home in a week in exchange for paying partial rent but then refused to do so. Ms. Patton also attempted to manipulate Plaintiffs into helping her organize a fundraiser for her non-profit Crossing the Digital Divide, saying that she could use money from a fundraiser to help pay the rent and that Plaintiffs would never collect on the judgment if they filed a Unlawful Detainer action against her because she is self employed. After serving Ms. Patton with a 3 day Notice to Pay or Quit, her rent check bounced and Plaintiffs filed the Unlawful Detainer Action against her and she was subsequently evicted. Ms. Patton's constant pattern of harassment, threats and complaints continued throughout her stay, including calling the police when Plaintiffs refused to allow a Comcast technician on their property or when Plaintiffs removed numerous large plants from their front porch which Ms. Patton put there without permission. Ms. Patton demanded Internet access because she had to work (she works from home, not at an office) even though she had no wireless network card in her computer and then she illegally ordered Comcast and had Internet cable wiring installed in Plaintiff's residence without their permission which was finally removed after Plaintiff's attorney demanded that Comcast remove their equipment from Plaintiffs' home.

Ms. Patton exhibited bizarre and paranoid behavior, wearing dark sunglasses in the house and wrapping a scarf, telephone cord and an umbrella around the doorknob to her bedroom when she went out, writing threatening notes, accusing Plaintiffs of conducting illegal background checks and constantly threatening to sue Plaintiffs for slander, etc.

Filing Date: 12/05/2005
UNLAWFUL DETAINER Case No. 05U02532
Courthouse: Santa Monica
TOTAL JUDGMENT: $ 2,669.51

Kathleen Patton paid Plaintiff $800 rent and $300 security deposit for the first month's rent. Ms. Patton's rent check for the second month bounced and she attempted to pay in cash late, but Plaintiff refused to accept it. Ms. Patton repeatedly harassed Plaintiff and her teenage son and repeatedly called the police to report the son for making too much noise. Ms. Patton was very argumentative and Plaintiff's son had to move out of the residence for the last 6 weeks that Ms. Patton was there due to the hostile environment. Ms. Patton brought in several fern plants and threatened to take Plaintiff to court for an ex parte hearing if Plaintiff moved the ferns off of the balcony, even though Plaintiff had told her to remove them. Ms. Paton wore dark sunglasses in the house and was paranoid about her room security and tied a scarf around the doorknob when she went out.

CHARGES: Defendant advertised for assistance in moving and packing household goods and offered a used computer in exchange for 1 full days work of packing. Plaintiff worked in excess of 2 days and defendant refused to give Plaintiff the computer.
TOTAL JUDGMENT: $ 522.00

Plaintiff was a college student who responded to Kathleen Patton's post on craigslist seeking moving assistance in exchange for a free computer. Plaintiff agreed to help Ms. Patton move out of a Marina del Rey apartment located at 4320 Via Marina #C, Marina del Rey, CA 90292 (she was evicted from this residence by Legacy Partners) into a Culver City apartment located at 4194 Duquesne Avenue #6 (from which she was subsequently evicted by Plaintiff Angela Denise Millage) and to put stuff in storage in exchange for the computer. The one day's labor turned into 2 days and Ms. Patton then refused to give Plaintiff the computer and threatened to call the police, claiming that the job wasn't finished and that she needed to rest because she was tired. Plaintiff obtained a judgment against Ms. Patton and when his landlord attempted to intervene on his behalf with Ms. Patton, she sent the woman threatening e-mails and told her to "CEASE and DESIST", which she has done in many other instances when people contact her to try and collect on judgments owed to them or post anything about her activities on various Internet boards. .

Small Claims Case No. 05U01410
Courthouse: Santa Monica
Failure to refund first and security for room rental that never took place due to Plaintiff's material alteration of rental agreement in violation of tenant rights

Plaintiff John Sambuck paid Kathleen Patton $1,490.00 for first and security on 8/1/05. On the date of move-in, Ms. Patton tried to make him sign an agreement in violation of his tenant rights (not speaking with other neighbors or the management company, etc.). Ms. Patton got upset when Plaintiff refused to sign and threatened to call the police. Plaintiff chose not to move in because the rental terms were not acceptable. The case was dismissed because Mr Sambuck was unable to personally serve Ms. Patton after she was evicted from the Marina del Rey apartment.

Courthouse: Santa Monica

Address: 4320 Via Marina #C, Marina del Rey, CA 90292

The lease attached as an exhibit in the Unlawful Detainer Complaint is dated 7/1/05, the month prior to the date that Legacy Partners filed the eviction action against Kathleen Patton. Numerous ex roommates filed approximately 10 small claims cases against Ms. Patton during 2004-2005 for rental fraud, double renting, failure/refusal to refund unused rent and security deposits, violation of tenant rights, harassment, etc. at this Marina Del Rey apartment. On information and belief, Legacy Partners had previously raised the rent on this unit from over $1,400 to over $1,600 per month at the time of the new lease as the rental value of the units had gone up in Marina del Rey. The complaint states past due rent of $1,644 plus other costs and fees, total judgment of $2,712.10.

Case No.04A01963 Defendant: Kathleen Patton Plaintiff: Veronica Vera,

Failure to refund first and security deposit for room rental that never took place due to double renting of room

Plaintiff's Claim for $1,450. Defendant accepted and cashed check for room rental on 7/31/04, rented room to another person and has refused to refund money. Defendant has threatened to inform employer to compromise my character.

1/27/05 - Default Judgment $1,450.00 + 22.00 costs.

Plaintiff Veronica Vera answered Kathleen Patton's ad to rent the Marina del Rey apartment. She paid first and security and Ms. Patton gave her the key. After Ms. Patton told Plaintiff that she couldn't move in because the room was occupied, Ms. Vera tried to put a stop payment on the check. However, it had been cashed right away at a Texas bank.

Plaintiff/Judgment Debtor George Cheatham met Plaintiff at the Santa Monica Courthouse during a Judgment Debtor Exam for Ms. Patton. Plaintiff told Mr. Cheatham that Ms. Patton had falsely claimed that Mr. Cheatham hadn't moved out of the room yet and he hadn't paid her rent when in fact Mr. Cheatham had already moved out and Ms. Patton had double rented the room to a 23 year old man while refusing to refund the rent and security payment which she had received from Ms. Vera for the same rental period.

Courthouse: Santa Monica

Failure to refund security deposit

Plaintiff's Complaint - $725 The Defendant owes Plaintiff's security deposit back after 7/31/04. Defendant gave 30 days notice and vacated the building.

10/18/04 Judgment Vacated
11/15/05 Notice of Motion to Vacate Judgment Defendant used incorrect address to notify Plaintiff

12/16/04 Motion granted, Judgment for $350 + $82 court costs

5/16/04 ORAP Judgment Debtor and Defendant no show, off calendar

Plaintiff rented the room in the Marina del Rey townhome from Kathleen Patton and lived there from May July, 2004. He paid first, last and security to move in. Plaintiff gave notice 3 days after moving in because he thought that Ms. Patton had mental problems/a serious mental condition and was "not well". Ms. Patton begged Plaintiff not to move after he gave notice. Ms. Patton was aware that Plaintiff was moving to LA and didn't have a job so initially he would be home during the first month. However, Ms. Patton told Plaintiff not to come home before 7:00 p.m. because she was working (clear violation of tenant rights). Ms. Patton also got upset when Plaintiff cooked chicken as she claimed to be a vegetarian and the smell reportedly bothered her. Ms. Patton also complained about TV noise and the fact that Plaintiff had a computer in his room. Plaintiff ate out a lot to avoid the hassle of dealing with Ms. Patton.

Ms. Patton called Plaintiff's phone and left rambling messages and she also called the people that Plaintiff had listed as references on his rental application and bugged them. Plaintiff forwarded his mail to the Neptune Marina office for safekeeping while residing at the apartment. Plaintiff subsequently spoke with Plaintiff Veronica Vera at the Santa Monica Courthouse during a Judgment Debtor exam hearing for Ms. Patton and he advised Ms. Vera that Ms. Patton had rented the spare bedroom in the Marina del Rey townhome to a 23 year old man who got occupancy instead of Ms. Vera even though Ms. Vera had also paid rent to occupy the room at the same period of time (illegal double renting of room and failure to refund Plaintiff Veronica Vera's first and security rent payment ). Ms. Patton got the judgment reduced from $750 to $350, as she claimed that she had to paint the bedroom, clean the carpet and that Plaintiff had made long distance calls.

Ms. Patton claimed that she was a reporter for the Beverly Hills Courier. She had a problem with eye contact and wanted to talk to Plaintiff on the phone rather than in person.

Failure to refund unused rent and security deposit, tenant harassment, violation of tenant rights

Plaintiff's Claim for $2,729.00 Deposit $725.00 and unused last month's rent $544, $725 x 3 +$544 = $2,729.00

5/21/04 Defendant Kathleen Patton letter to Ji Hong in court file stating summary of events: 10 days after move-in, you (Plaintiff) came in the townhome during the afternoon. The first time it happened the noise bothered Ms. Patton and she was surprised but didn't say anything. The next day when Plaintiff came home during the daytime Ms. Patton confronted him about being home during the daytime as she'd told him that she wanted a tenant who wasn't home during the daytime (9-5 job) because she worked at home. Plaintiff reportedly became hostile towards Ms. Patton and told her that he had the right to be in the townhome whenever he wished. You (Plaintiff) consulted an attorney who told you that agreements mean nothing and you could break them at will. Ms. Patton accused Plaintiff of breaching their agreement and not giving her 30 days notice before moving out. Plaintiff moved out at the end of a 60 day period. Ms. Patton alleges that Plaintiff used a mover and a dolly to move his furniture/possessions down the stairs and that it caused marks on the carpet. She reportedly asked Plaintiff to stop but he continued using the dolly. Ms. Patton acknowledged that Plaintiff hired someone to clean the room and the stairwell. However, Ms. Patton claimed that the marks on the carpet were permanent and due to alleged tears in the carpet, the carpet would need to be replaced. She offered to provide an estimate.

9/13/04 Defendant Kathleen Patton letter to court stating that she missed the 8/16/04 hearing date due to an urgent matter with the corporation of which she is the Executive Director. My duties at the non-profit corporation are varied, as it's a small yet growing company of which I'm in charge.
Ms. Patton stated that Plaintiff signed an agreement to rent the room starting on 2/21/04. She deducted the remaining $725 security deposit for carpet repair. No repair estimate was included with her letter.

Plaintiff: Larry Sperling
Filing Date: 2/29/2000
UNLAWFUL DETAINER Case No. 00X00267
Courthouse: West Los Angeles

Kathleen Patton rented a room from Plaintiff and moved into his home in approximately September 1999. She begged to move in early before room was ready and stayed on the couch for the first few days as Plaintiff was getting the room painted and re-carpeted. Ms. Patton agreed to pay $500/month rent and a security deposit to rent a room. Ms. Patton only paid a pittance for the first month's rent and thereafter failed to pay any additional rent or the security deposit. Ms. Patton gave Plaintiff various stories about financial hardship and false promises to pay the rent. During her stay, Plaintiff's utility bills tripled as Ms. Patton cranked the heat and walked around in shorts. She only came out of the bedroom on a rare occasion and wore black sunglasses in the house. Ms. Patton claimed to be a food & move critic for the Beverly Hills Courier. Ms. Patton repeatedly engaged in harassing behavior towards Plaintiff and constantly complained. She would create a scene and complaint about noise when Plaintiff had guests over, causing Plaintiff's guests to leave due to her disruptive behavior. Ms. Patton would also get in Plaintiff's face and almost push him trying to bait him to retaliate. Ms. Patton also used the fireplace without permission without opening the flue after the walls were painted and, causing smoke damage, which she then blamed on a defective chimney. On the lock-out date, Ms. Patton asked Plaintiff if she could stay through the weekend but Plaintiff declined and she was evicted by the Sheriffs.

Kathleen, why don't you mediate instead of suing people?

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

Kathleen, you've sued all of these people who sued you. You implored them to mediate instead in the first place. Well, why didn't you offer to mediate after they won their judgments against you rather than suing them yourself? You purport to be all for mediation, but you don't do it when you decide to play plaintiff. That's kinda hypocritical isn't it? How about this: The next person you decide to sue, mediate instead. I think I know who that person will be. Do you have a claim for lost wages? Harassment? Emotional distress? "Wrongful eviction?" Offer to mediate. I will be amazed if you actually do that.

As a defendant you want to meditate.

As a plaintiff you want to sue.

You are a hypocrite.

You have a number of folks who are willing to turn a blind eye to what you are doing to harm people. After all, they're not being harmed themselves. At the same time you have a long and growing list of enemies. That list will grow exponentially now. Nothing you say is credible. It will not be taken as credible. I'm sure you are working on victim #55. Or is it victim #355? Because we don't know how many you "mediated" with or otherwise screwed over-- those that are not in the court record.

Is Crossing the Digital Divide non-profit ethical, since director Kathleen Patton doesn't pay her proper rents & manipulates to try delaying eviction?

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

Over approximately 20 years Kathleen Patton has ripped off people by not paying rent or other payments due -- and manipulating and/or harassing the innocent victim landlords/sublessors to supposedly scare them into not filing eviction lawsuits against her. (It appears, however, that they always DO file eviction lawsuits...and fairly timely.) And then Kathleen Patton retaliates with frivolous lawsuits back). All this has already been stated by me and other victims - in this RipOff Report, stated here just for background review before presenting other info herein.

(Please see very first RipOff Report, above; then read other supporting reports, as interested.)

However, there is a new concern related -- and that is the efficacy and integrity of the 'non-profit' that Kathleen Patton runs: Crossing the Digital Divide. This link --

http://government.zdnet.com/?p=1870 --

as well as confusing and conflicting statements from Ms. Patton herself about "loss of earnings because of an eviction or other lawsuit" being filed against her, makes me wonder if Crossing the Digital Divide is being on the up and up in every way. If she says she doesn't have money to pay judgments, then what about these "earnings" that she "loses a few days of"? Where are the "earnings coming from" and what are the TRUE amounts she receives?

And, if this is an issue: why isn't Ms. Patton paid enough by CDD - to at least pay her rent (and therefore not have to be evicted, assuming she behaves decently)?!

------------

Perhaps Crossing the Digital Divide needs to be more seriously looked at as a source of rip-off as well, and as related to Kathleen Patton's serial squatting / rental scamming and scaring people.

Again--the case study cited above re a "crossing the digital divide" scam (same link as given above):

http://government.zdnet.com/?p=1870


-------------


IF anyone knows anything unsavory / "rip-offish" about Crossing the Digital Divide in the Los Angeles Area, run by Kathleen Patton, then please post the truth in this RipOff Report series - to help the Public.


==========

ANOTHER EVICTION just days after an Eviction:
As reported, Ms. Patton was once again evicted from an unsuspecting soul's home in my neighborhood (across the street), just days after being evicted from my home (and her leaving, then, July 14th-15th, 2008).

POLICE INTERVENTION:
How could anyone--and specifically Ms. Kathleen Patton--be evicted so fast, instead of via the usual 2-3 month or more eviction lawsuit process (which wastes a victims'/Sublessor/Landlord's time, money, well-being)? Well, I have learned that extenuating circumstances and Police intervention were involved. Maybe the Landlord/victim herself will tell the story enough, to be helpful to the Public.

I hope and pray that Ms. Patton stops the SCAM!--but so much damage has already been done over the approximate twenty (20) years of rip-offs, as the court records show. Again for review:

simply google "Kathleen Patton"; the court cases and other related info put up by some anonymous person about two years ago, will come up (and now, RipOff Report also comes up).

submitted by
Julieanna --

Sublessor victim of Kathleen Patton from March 25th to July 14th, 2008

Losing about $5,000 in rent money (includes days beyond the Judgment of over #3,000) and electricity (not yet calculated, but most electrical was included in the rent); and, cost of changing my phone jack back which Ms. Patton tampered with and changed, even though in written note I clearly told her to please leave it alone; and, other losses, e.g., sadly, about $10,000 or more in loss of work (esp. as had planned on rebuilding my businesses and doing certain creative projects after a political-activist break), depending on more precise calculations... It was impossible for me to truly concentrate on my work (much of which is done at home) what with taking Ms. Patton to court several times, in pro per and then with attorney aid...and helping the paralegals and attorneys involved, etc.; meeting other victims (very helpful); and having to deal with her in my home, as described above in various Reports or Consumer Comments herein.

Yes, at least I learned more about the law... and about how a "con-artist" works.


PERSONAL ITEMS MISSING:
I am also missing half of my set of lovely family-owned flatware (forks), not highly valuable, but very meaningful because of being in the family for several generations. I missed a few other minor items (paper toweling, new bottle of lime juice), as well, which I cannot prove Ms. Patton took. The forks have to have been taken by her; I discovered the loss while looking for her knife and fork which she claimed someone in the household "stole" (!) (later found that hers had fallen between counter and stove...I told Kathleen this, but she wasn't interested in retrieving them after all her complaining! My forks weren't there that I can find, only her utensils.) Any guests in my home are friends who would not take anything!

Indeed my forks were GONE. I made a Police Report. And I hid the flatware / utensil drawer (just as I hid certain valuables).

(If I ever find these forks which suddenly were gone--were not in diswasher, nor in cupboards, nor accidentally in frig, in a picnic basket used several weeks ago, or on the counter or having fallen between counter and stove, etc., etc., I will correct the record.)

Removed once again

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

According to your other victims you have been removed from your next victim's place, just 2 or 3 days after "moving in." Bravo to that victim. What's your next step? Are you going to sue her also?? I solidly predict that's a "yes." I'd say go ahead-- let's add that to the list. Where will you go now? Maybe a motel? You'd actually be forced to PAY for that. No, I think you will crash at someone's house-- someone from "Crossing the Digital Divide Non-Profit," the organization you direct, but only for a few days until you can find another person to victimize. And why? Because you don't want to alienate the CDDNP people. They are your lackies, your income source. You have to make them believe you are a responsible member of the community. Here is my prediction:

Maybe a motel for a few days.

A stay at a CDDNP employee or volunteer's place.

You will sue your last roommate for something-- anything. Maybe harassment, wrongful eviction, or "loss of work," and once again you will lose. By the way, what "loss of work?" Where do you work? How much did you lose (how much do you earn)? I'd really like to know. Because if you are going to prove lost wages you have to prove you earn something, and prove that it comes from somewhere. That "somewhere" is most likely Crossing the Digital Divide Non-Profit. If you earn something you can pay your judgments. That's a real catch 22 isn't it?

Finally a move into yet another unsuspecting victim's house.

Yet another eviction on your record, and yet another lawsuit brought by you.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Kathleen Patton, under eviction, finally left the last day of Sheriff grace period; there is now a new victim

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

Ms. Patton finally left my home late--very late--Monday night (and was still moving, disturbing us, up until 4 a.m. and beyond). Monday was July 14th--the last day she had to get out, according to the Sheriff's bold NOTICE of EVICTION. However, she was moving until so late that it was Tuesday, July 15th, early morning. The Sheriff was scheduled to come this morning to physically put her out (as she has allowed to happen in the past). But where I live is complicated and vehicles are not allowed on the grounds...so a Sheriff escorting her out in a matter of fifteen minutes would have been a mess, what with belongings, etc.

I asked Kathleen Patton to please not disturb us, just sleep there the night and move the rest of the things in the morning.... However...

She didn't care, and said: "I'm finishing moving tonight... This is what happens when I'm forced out..." I told her that SHE, not I, forced herself out, essentially, by not paying rent and behaving threateningly and manipulating things as she did and tried to do!

The room was left quite clean; however, Ms. Patton had six bags of garbage left in kitchen and her room and bath -- perhaps it was a "present" for me -- as if I am the one causing her "trouble", whereas, please know (future 'roommates' to Ms. Patton) that it is truly the reverse:

Ms. Patton has caused many people, trouble. The court cases verify that (see the original RipOff Report on Kathleen Patton, above).

The laws need to be changed to protect Landlords and Sublessors from parasitic "con-artists" who refuse to revamp their lives. Ms. Patton has enough skills to work a job and pay for a room. Instead she continues to rip off while hiding behind her so-called work of her 'non-profit' organization, Crossing the Digital Divide, which doesn't apparently pay her enough to pay for a room???

Or, is she saving some $$$ for that 'land in Arizona' she says she wants to buy?

=========

Indeed a sad situation -- sad for her -- and sad for her victims.

The new victim is in for some trouble... I reach out to you, and so do other, past victims reach out to you.

More later, as this RipOff Report evolves...

Kathleen Patton's alibis and justifications for not paying rent - don't fly

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

In re the above letter to "future roommates" by Kathleen Patton, she writes:

"I do want to pay you the rent. It may not be the full rent you asked for in case for some reason I feel I am not getting what I was promised. There may be other circumstances that have caused a dispute. But please know that I would like this resolved out of court and with your receiving at least some of or possibly all of the rent you feel your are owed. Let's resolve this and move forward and avoid your becoming part of this drama."

Ms. Patton takes in her own hand, the law. California law says that tenants may not withhold rents unless for basic needs not being met: e.g., water or electricity turned off; or mold growing; or other such extreme conditions which are obviously a danger or unhealthful. But Ms. Patton will "deduct rent" if, as said by other responders to this Report, boxes are misplaced, something is painted during her tenancy, the doorknob doesn't work, the noise outside 'bothers her', and any myriad number of complaints.

It ALSO should be noted that Ms. Patton will provoke some conditions which you, the landlord or sublessor, will have to remedy (and if you don't do it in time, then rent will be deducted or not paid!). In my case, I was kind enough to allow her to move in early, even with boxes needing to be removed from what would be her room. I removed the bulk of them upon her moving in...and my Contract gave me a month and "asap" to remove the rest of my belongings stored in her room. However, long before that month lapsed, she was complaining about the boxes in the room (which didn't hamper her at all, by the way) YET SHE WOULD NOT LET ME IN THE ROOM to retrieve the boxes (which later took all of ten minutes to remove, with Police help, b.t.w.!)

As stated in the original Report and later at RipOffReport.com, this is a blackmailing mind. We see the same thing in her quite-good-writing of a plea to "future roommates" that she will "work things out" --- IF

...YOU DO WHAT I SAY, i.e. ---

even though her withholding rent $ is illegal unless it is a breach of basic, necessary services for a time, i.e., water, electricity, and basic health issues like mold growing obviously in the room! Then, if a tenant does withhold for these things, the money is to go into a special account, showing that when the services are restored and/or fixed, the rent will be paid -- oftentimes even in full.

This is NOT what Ms. Patton does!

SHE is the one who breached our Contract. SHE is the one who refused to pay the $50 Gate and Parking fee (SO THAT SHE COULD COMPLAIN about this, too, that she couldn't easily get into the gate and had to park on the street, etc., etc., trying to make herself the victim).

The woman is a "CON" in her actions, very quietly and deceivingly and convincingly carried out: BE CAREFUL, any potential Landlord or Sublessor!

In addition, SHE DOESN'T PAY JUDGMENTS -- there is no record of her paying any judgments off. Yet she stays there, ripping me off, as she has for three+ months! The Sheriff will come at an undisclosed time to remove her...

"Minor roommate disputes??"

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

Also, do you really think so many people would go to the time, trouble and expense of going to court, then band together and communicate over minor roommate disputes? No, we're talking about thousands of dollars lost. I have lived with a whole lot of roommates. The only times I have ever been to court with them were due a refusal to pay rent and refusal to move out.

And again, if you don't like the situation where you live, LEAVE. Why would you want to stay?

If the sounds that the stars make at night bother you, if the walls are the wrong shade of white, if the neighbor's cat is a peeping tom, if the doorknob is trying to attack you, if your roommate drinks the wrong brand of tea, if aliens are stealing your Cream of Wheat, if the possums are organizing a military junta, if the neighboring children are demons in disguise, if werewolves hang out in the parking lot playing frisbee-- whatever the "reason," you'd best get out of that room. But believe me, the children in your next neighborhood will also be demons in disguise, and the doorknobs will continue to attack, so you'd better not pay rent. That always remedies problems like these.

Also by the way, travel light. I advise you don't own anything large like a bed or desk, since you obviously will need to move at least every few months. And God knows you don't want large pieces of furniture to take a disliking to you. That can be very dangerous-- also grounds to stop paying your rent.

Response to the above

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

Yes, you may be able to come up with cashed checks and may be able to find people who say you were a good roommate. Unfortunately that proves nothing. That's why we aren't interested. The fact remains you bilk dozens, live for nothing and refuse to leave.

And yes, I am very interested in the future, not just the past. In the future I want you to pay what you owe me. It would also be good if you stopped doing this to people. That is also in the future.

Your offers to "find a middle ground" and "mediate" are always bad. For you finding a "middle ground" will always be to pay less than you agreed to if anything at all. As far as mediation goes, simply pay your rent and no one will need it. Your offers for mediation have just been a way to try to make yourself look good. Mediation will not get your roommate their rent unless you agree to pay it, and you won't. Therefore it's a waste of time, and that is why all of these people went to court. Mediation keeps it off the record too, and your future victims deserve to know. Again that makes mediation a waste.

Again, you will always find *something* wrong with your living situation. You need that for your excuse to not pay. No house or roommate is perfect, and even if they were I'm sure you'd still find something wrong or make something up.

So, to Kathleen's future roommates:

You can see simply from her posting above. She is already warning you that she'll sue you as she did the rest of us, that you'll get no money if you sue her as with the rest of us, and she is preparing you to mediate, meaning you can already anticipate a problem-- something to "mediate" about.

Here's a likely scenario:

She moves in. One day you decide to store a few boxes in your living room, or you change the color of the paint in the hallway. She stops paying rent. You say "What's up?" She says "I feel I'm not getting what I was promised when I moved in. Let's negotiate or mediate. I'm a good person and I really want to work it out." If you don't agree she won't pay at all, and you can't call the police to remove her. You HAVE to go to court. That will take at least 6 weeks, and could cost you over $1000 for a lawyer. If you DO agree to mediate she says "Gee, I know I agreed to pay $900 a month for my room, but I'll offer you $300 from now on since I feel I'm not getting what I signed up for." And you'd probably be lucky to get that. So, are you going to accept $300 a month when you can rent it for $900? If not, your ONLY *legal* option is court. And that is why there are so many cases against her. These people were forced to either pay her rent for her or sue for possession of the room.

Letter to My Future Roommate

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

A Letter To My Future Roommates

First a comment-This will be my last response to this thread of messages left mostly by Anonymous posters. Someone said it does not matter that I find it to be a double standard that people post detailed and personal information about me on the Internet while keeping their own identity anonymous. It clearly matters to me. I guess this was your showing of apathy to someone else's concerns or sort of invalidating the concerns. The entire callus and indifferent attitude by these posters in general is part of what created the problem in the home to begin with; harmony in the home requires a great deal of caring and validating as opposed to disregard. Shared housing is not all about the rent. These people really only focus on the rent. It is their chant.

It has been universally acknowledged that I am (in every other way according to this Vigilante Militia) a great roommate. I am quiet, clean with a pleasant personality; and very dedicated to the non-profit I helped found. In fact I at one time first became friends with almost all of these people. At some point there became some small difference that mushroomed into a major divide. These disputes could all have been resolved had their been some simple caring instead of the finger pointing, blame mongering, and poor me attitude you hear in these postings. The people here are all about the past not about the future. They want to make sure that my past continues to repeat itself; otherwise, they will loose the battle. Their credibility and personal sense of glee comes with each of my failures. In other words, their success is based on my failure.

So this militia's goal is to assure that I continue to fail in forming a successful roommate situation. Of course that means that you, my future roommate, will end up loosing as well. They are a few people who have what is called Group Think. This is when you surround yourself with people who agree with you. None of them are allowed to bring evidence to the table that disputes their view. Their view, of course, is that I intentionally rent a room without intending on paying for the room. I can tell you this is completely not true. When I have offered proof of all of the successful roommates I have had who will give me recommendations they are not interested. When I offer to show copies of my paid rent checks they are not interested. Basically, once they drink the cool aid offered by the person who has created the bogus websites about me, they are no longer interested in reality. The darkness of the vale created by ignorance, hatred, blaming and finger pointing takes over and they fall deeper and deeper into the pit. They begin resembling Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Their Precious Ring is their hatred of me. Sad to see any group form around hatred but that is what feeds this monster. No amount of reasoning or actual showing the facts can permeate. I think part of the allure is to feel they belong to something since none of this handful of people has much else to point to as success in their lives. Unlike the organization I helped found, CDD, that is based on helping people move forward and away from their past; these people want to make sure the past continues to repeat.





Let me state here that much of what is posted on those websites is incorrect. I have attempted to write to the owner of the site to point out the incorrect information but have had no response. Not all of the cases are mine. There are a couple of incidences where I am listed on the lease because I once lived in the unit but have been long gone and was still named in the lawsuit. There have been some that were paid but they are listed as not being paid. Some are not even actual lawsuits. It does not matter to the person who created the website. The site is designed to make me look bad; they are not going to use the fair light law listing anything that might paint me fairly. The person is not going to post any success stories with roommates in other words only the negatives. In case they posted anything positive it would shatter the faade.

So here is my letter to my future roommate. This is to someone for whom I may rent a room at some point or have rented a room from you. I hope you consider this in the event you come across this unhappy union of miscreants who have posted this bunk about me.

Dear Future Roommate;

First know that I only want to make our living situation a happy one and that certainly includes paying the rent. You must have Googled my name or you would not be reading this letter. I would have preferred you not have gone behind my back to see what dirt you can find out about me. That does begin the steady and slow decline in trust needed in a healthy roommate situation. Still, you have a right to do your search, of course. There are many things we have a right to do though that can mean the end of having a good outcome in our home. A good outcome to me is that we share the home, remaining on good terms, with both feeling good about the situation. Again, to reiterate, that certainly includes having the rent paid. Another good outcome is that we decide to part ways but that you and I have given proper notice and remain civil and kind during that time period.

In case you are not happy in my home of vice-versa than I would like to do all I can to resolve this matter. It must be a two-way street though; you need to also consider my concerns. I am happy to meet with you with a Mediator. I am happy to pay additional security in case I am the renter. I would only ask that you realize that in case you choose to go to court you will be turning down money I have offered you. Court is really not a good way to settle this matter; you may not ever receive money you think you are owed that way because I will defend myself and fight for my rights. I do not take the legal system lightly. When someone chooses to sue me instead of find some amicable middle ground I tend to dig in and do all I can to win my case. So, while you may feel pride is in the way and you want to take this all the way instead of settle, please find the middle ground and let's compromise. I would much rather pay you something that we both feel is fair and leave on good terms or have you leave in case you are my lesser than end up in court.

The person who created this website wants you to become another statistic. She wins when you loose. Do not drink this poison please. I do want to pay you the rent. It may not be the full rent you asked for in case for some reason I feel I am not getting what I was promised. There may be other circumstances that have caused a dispute. But please know that I would like this resolved out of court and with your receiving at least some of or possibly all of the rent you feel your are owed. Let's resolve this and move forward and avoid your becoming part of this drama.

By the way, the person who has posted this website and anyone else who has contributed, will be sued. There are laws about retaliating against a renter and also confidentiality laws protecting a lesser or lessee from disclosing personal information such as disputes and etc. That is the real reason these people post anonymously! There is nothing with integrity about this ordeal. In fact our legal justice system guarantees that each of be allowed to face our accusers. The Internet is blowing holes in this basic civil right and the website where this is posted is a part of that declining process. *Please do not get pulled in by these people who want you to loose so that they can feel some self-satisfaction at being able to say; see, I told you so, here is another one who wants to join our militia. They are using you. The only satisfaction they get is from my and your failure. These people literally are obsessed with me. They use the website to stalk me even though my whereabouts are public knowledge since our meeting dates and places are posted on our website. They really have nothing else to live for but that next email from someone who they can add to their list of so called victims. Please do not become their victim. Let's get back to the table and settle our differences today. We can find a good outcome as long as we both work toward the middle ground. I do want this to work out between us so please help me make that happen; there is no glory in failure.

Thank you for renting your room to me and or renting from me. Let's resolve this today.

Thank you,

Kathleen Patton

Yes, it's about your unpaid rents, Kathleen; and about harassing people in the throes!

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

From another victim of Kathleen Patton's:

The writers talking about the unpaid rents of Kathleen Patton, above, and alluding to what real responsibility is, and exposing the "MO" of Kathleen Patton, are right on! Not to be forgotten are the annoying, provoking, threatening and harassing behaviors of Ms. Patton, as well. Manipulator out of some evil stratasphere that says "go rip off", "go rip off"!

To Ms. Patton I say: It doesn't matter if a person submitting an entry is identified or not. It's about the truth. The truth, which you would never listen to when I was a victim, too. I tried to tell you that a longtime ago. The people writing above may remain anonymous, just as I am. So many lies and exaggerations you have woven, defaming people about mediocre things that no one is interested in, anyway, although you try to make people look bad, with your lies.

I wonder, how can you do all this? Rip people off, have NO feeling whatsoever about hurting them as you do. I recall your looking pretty miserable. Doing evilish things eventually catches up, brings people down.

By the way, I just met Kathy Pratt the other day while I was visiting. She's very intelligent, and is a paralegal, I learned, not a clerk. I read some of her writing. It's very clear, a good writer. I think you would learn a lot from her.

Do you think anything will reach you, Kathleen Patton? To STOP you in your renting scam? You have enough skills, Kathleen, to get a day job, even half time, and pay your rent for a decent room. Then work the non profit organization too and make it grow, with your being honest. Then maybe you can make more money and get a better room, etc., and pay your judgments, with real apology.

Yet, it's been a way of life for you for so long; do you think you could change on your own?

But you should pay your past judgments too, as well as STOP this renting scam: over $50,000, you owenow. I'm informed about two more eviction cases against you that were successful, since the last one posted on the web in 2007.

Who is your victim now? (I guess it's Julieanna who wrote the first Ripoff report? who will be the next, and the next?)

Yes, it is about your unpaid rent

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

You only need to look at the court cases and judgments to see that it IS about your unpaid rent, or speak with one of the many people who sued. And we're talking about 52 different people who did not know one another. Are you saying that you've just been unlucky enough to meet 52 unrelated people who filed frivolous suits against you because they were just bad roommates? Envious of you because you run a non-profit? We don't care about that. We just want the money you owe us. So take your paycheck from Crossing the Digital Divide and pay your outstanding judgments.

If every roommate you've ever had is bad, don't live with roommates. Get a studio. If you believe you've had *some* good roommates, your record is still bad at 52 suits, so live alone. You will not do this of course, because you will actually have to pay rent. You want your roommates to be forced to pay your rent for you.

Your M.O. is this:

You intend to come up with a perceived problem with your roommate or their apartment. Anyone can invent a problem or lie. "The place is too cluttered." "The bathroom is too dirty." Whatever. Anyone can invent that in the most perfect of situations. That's how you then justify not paying. There's always a "problem." Then you yourself try to sue, always in retaliation.

Again, since roommates are such a problem, don't live with them.

Double Standard's Abound-Posting Personal Info on Me While You Remain Anonymous

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

As to the response to my challenge to prove your defamatory statements about my "living rent free for the past 20 years" (an outrageous lie) you suggested I post my rent checks online while you do not even offer us your name! I think any online readers can see a double standard for what it is, absolute malarkey. It is time you either have the integrity to be transparent or stop making statements about me. I know you are Kathy Pratt from Mar Vista but you can play coy in case you wish. Bottom line, this is Civil, not Criminal. These are Civil Cases and unless you would like to bring Debtor's Prison back into our society than this will remain Civil. I do not have 52 Cases based on not paying Bills. These are due to disputes people have over living situations. Those disputes may end up in court over money but they all begin over some minor dispute, which could easily be resolved, in case both parties are willing to find some amicable middle ground. Anyone can bring a suit against you. They do not have to have a reason or a case. That makes the onus than on you to defend yourself and in case you miss the court date you will loose by default. Many people with a grudge bring a suit against someone to retaliate.

Building the non-profit has taken many great people a lot of work over years. I am just one person in the organization so I again I say to you; your bringing the name of the organization into this discussion is clearly malicious. You are so focused on hurting me that you would be happy to hurt the hundreds of adults who benefit from our work just to see me suffer. You are a true hero, truly someone to be admired, oh but we can't admire you because you won't tell us your name. Oops. Oh well, I guess, going after me because I have a high profile position is easier and more fun than going after someone with a clerk's position at a law office. I think that explains a big reason why I pay my bills but why there is a problem with ROOMMATES. As I previously stated, it is not about rent but about some minor dispute, turning into a court case. Disputes are co-created, they require two people, that is why this is called Civil.

As for this website being designed for bringing complaints about individuals, again I do not believe this is accurate and will be contacting the owner for clarification. It appears to me to be for Consumers about Businesses.

If you paid your bills you wouldn't have been sued 52 times

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

I see how careful you are with your language Kathleen. You say that you pay your bills, but you neglect to mention rent. You challenge people to bring their checks to you. I'll be happy to do that, but we all know that is your attempt to serve yet another summons for yet another frivolous lawsuit. Also, since I have no check at all from you, you will have to be the one to provide proof. About 27 evictions are the evidence that you DO NOT pay your bills. You may pay your non-profit's bills, but you certainly don't pay your rent.

Assuming that your non-profit actually IS doing good things, the fact remains that YOU are doing very bad things, and you are the company's director. You are harming people while claiming to help people. If your claims are correct I'm guessing you think of yourself as a modern day Robin Hood. But that would require robbing from the RICH. We are not rich.

Here is my challenge to you:

Rather than meeting to compare checks, how about scanning them and posting them online? Put the link on this site. Then we can take that to court and prove whether or not you have paid your rent-- expose your fraud. In the public arena, what will meeting up privately to view supposed checks accomplish?

Or, anyone can simply visit the LA County court web site and see that you have been sued by about 52 different people who had no relationship with one another whatsoever.

Criminal action will be pursued. We the victims guarantee that.

Kathleen Patton is playing victim while accusing others of the same

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

Kathleen, you claim to earn money. Great! Then pay your judgments and your rent. Now that you have admitted that you earn an income I can use that in court. You claimed in the past to make nothing-- at your non-profit or otherwise. That is a fact that is in the court record, signed by yourself.

You perjured yourself then. That is a criminal matter, not a civil one. About 27 evictions is not a vendetta. None of these people knew you before renting to you, hence no personal vendetta.

RipOff Report re Kathleen Patton is legitimate: Reports may be about Individuals as well as Companies

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

Ms. Kathleen Patton, the person reported on this RipOff Report due to her rental scams the last twenty years (proven via the court case listings obtained at links in the First RipOff Report and testimonies of past Victims) -- writes re the Reports herein:

"This website is supposed to be for Consumers complaining about the business for which they have purchased or used their service."


But RipOff Report states that it is concerning individuals as well as companies... who rip you off. For example, individuals such as Kathleen Patton and the rental scamming and related harassing behaviors to scare and bother Landlords or Sublessors. RipOff Report writes that their reports are about a "person or company", not just a company:

"If you are a consumer who has something to say about the person or company reported, your rebuttal can include the following:

Comments explaining any similar experience(s) you have had with this person or company; [etc.]"

--------


The 'non-profit' that is apparently directed by Kathleen Patton ("Crossing the Digital Divide" / "CDD") is related to Kathleen Patton's rental scamming and said behaviors only inasmuch as she hides herself and monies behind this 'non-profit', if so. She never pays judgments, so it is natural to consider her work--this 'non-profit'--as a source for obtaining the judgement(s). (Apparently her work is mostly done at home via Internet, etc., as she rarely leaves home--is there in her room 24/7 except for apparent groceries and/an occasional monthly-or-so meeting/outing, in my experience of her being IN my home.)

Also, perhaps the 'non-profit' is not legitimate in some way, even if she says it is. The legitimacy--or degree thereof of legitimacy--is not known at this time.

The main purpose of this RipOff Report, however, is to alert the Public concerning the Rental Scam and related behaviors (actions, actively or passively...and continuous twisted/convoluted and deceitful communication) of Kathleen Patton which also blames YOU the consumer, while she scams.

Violating of Terms of Use of this Website/Please Remove these Reports

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

Again I will repeat that Julieanna Thompson and anyone who might write a supporting report has an issue with me and not about CDD. This website is supposed to be for Consumers complaining about the business for which they have purchased or used their service. These people do not have a complaint about CDD. They have no interaction or knowledge of CDD. Just as Julianna Thompson said in her own words; This is about Kathleen Patton not about CDD. That is proof positive that they are violating your Terms of Use by maligning the name of organization as a way to get to me. This website is not designed for personal disputes to be aired. This is for legitimate complaints against a company!

CDD has an excellent reputation in the community. We work hard to bring our services to the adults who benefit from our efforts. Since these reports say nothing to the contrary about CDD but are only focused on their issues with me I ask that you please remove these reports immediately. I am sure the owners of this website do not condone someone with a vendetta for an employee or volunteer of a company trying to take down the entire company to get to that one person. This is an outrage and an extreme misuse of the websites intention.

As to their continued statements about me, they also are violating your Terms of Use Agreement. First by filling the reports with rumor and innuendo and also by making defamatory and otherwise untrue statements about me. One statement made is that:

1) I am to blame for any and all problems with roommates. Amazing that these people see things in such black and white terms but that is the nature of the victim mentality. They refuse to acknowledge what part they played in the conflict. It is an axiom that conflict is co-created and as such requires 2 people. So, the fact that these people wish to shuck and responsibility shows a great deal about why this conflict ended up in court as opposed to say, mediation. For the record, I always attempt to arrange for mediation but these people want to have their revenge. I believe they have no interest in the rent at some point but really just want to drag my name through court so they can add it to the list. It is like a badge of honor to join the ranks of these self-made victims' club. Let me change club to gang as this what is happening here is a virtual militia who hide behind the Internet and the use of Anonymous while dragging all of my personal information through the mud; how much integrity and courage does this display? This Julieanna Thompson, for instance, promotes herself as involved in the community at yet she sees Renters Rights as being loopholes! This is the language of Developers not of Renters Advocates. I know her to be an Obama supporter. But everything I read about Obama is that he is against this type of gotcha politics where one person is attempting to expose someone by pointing the finger away from them self and taking no responsibility. I also doubt Obama is attempting to undo the hard fought Rights of Rentors.

2) Saying that I make no money or that I have said I make no money. This is absolute defamation. I pay all of my bills including Car Insurance (same company for 4 years with a Good Driver Discount), Telephone Bills (same phone company for 3 years and same phone number), PO Box (same box for over 10 years) and Voice Mail (same number for over ten years) just to name a few. Plus, being the CEO or a well established and well respected company; there are a myriad of bills and responsibilities involved in running the company. These have all been met with no problem for the past 5 years! Neither of the people who have filed a report against me has ever built a successful business. I think it is clear who is the most responsible. The fact is anyone can file a suit against you that cannot be controlled. One attorney has told me when I had my own Townhouse and occasionally rented a room that that was the price of doing business. No matter how I tried to avoid this by explaining my expectations before renting the room there would sometimes be a person who took issue even with their own-signed agreement. My regret is that I could not always take the time off of work to go to the court date and this is what you see is my not having the time to spend in court. Some people have a great deal of free time and are simply litigious. They enjoy drama but filing a lawsuit feeling somehow vindicated. I have only had to sue people on occasion and have never had to evict someone because I mediate with the renter. But, back the statement; I clearly make money and work hard to make my own money to run CDD and pay my bills. The only bill that these people are referring to is rent. So, in case they are being honest, this is about rent. The problem there is that the issues with rent never begin with issues about that but about some personal conflict. Roommates, especially as I am currently the Renter and not the Leaseholder (though not for long thankfully), pose a very unique living situation. Two strangers are suddenly living in an intimate setting. This simply can either work nicely in case they are both cooperative or not and it only takes one person to make this not successful. So, while it may end up about money it does not begin that way; it is about a personal dispute.

3) The last issue I will say until these reports are hopefully removed is the claim that I do not and have not paid rent for the past several years. Again this is absolute defamation. I would challenge both Julieanna Thompson and the other poster to bring their rent checks to some agreed upon location and let us compare. Even in the past year I can guarantee that I have paid more money in rent than either of these people! Again, I will also reiterate, I pay for many other bills involved in running my business as well. I am certain I generate more funds going into the community than they do besides the fact that CDD brings highly respected services for the underprivileged. I am someone who improves the community and the lives of many while they carry around their hatred and their victim hood as their trophies. Well, done ladies; you are truly to be admired. Bringing the victim mentality away from women. Thank you for your contribution. When you can prove that you pay more in rent (and other bills) than you might show some credibility. When you have successfully built a business than you can judge me. Until you can show that you are half the contributor to the community than I am than you should pay homage to me instead of trying to do me harm! The good thing about these reports is that they are more evidence for the courtroom because, yes, I too can file a lawsuit. When I do it is not malicious or frivolous but is my last recourse after numerous attempts at getting these people to stop harassing, attacking, maligning, defaming, slandering, stalking and otherwise doing all they can to injure me and the company CDD.

Kathleen Patton's rebuttal is NONSENSE. She is DEFINITELY THE PROBLEM. My own experience

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

Kathleen Patton has been sued by approximately 52 different parties, and when she is sued she usually sues them back in retaliation, wasting everyone's time. If she doesn't sue she threatens to sue-- constantly. I am one of the many people who has lost thousands of dollars to her, won a judgment against her in court and have never seen a payment. Subsequently she sued me in retaliation, forcing me to go to a court hearing and she didn't even show up (she does that often).

She has been evicted about 27 times, and each time she comes up with some excuse why she won't pay rent. When you are evicted 27 times the problem is YOU, not everyone else. The record is public. Don't just take my word for it. You can see it yourself on the LA court web site.

I'm writing this for Kathleen Patton's next victim. Here is a message to you:

You most likely have rented to Kathleen unsuspecting of her problems and have subsequently searched her name on the internet. Then you found this and other sites about her scamming. This has happened many times before, and many of her former victims have found one another and organized to try to stop the victimization. She may pay a portion of the first month's rent, but after that she will refuse to pay and refuse to leave. Then she will come up with some reason(s) why she won't pay, which can be just about anything. Even in the most perfect house she will come up with reasons. A popular one is "he/she is harassing me." (Always a lie). Or "he/she sleeps on the couch in the living room." Or "he/she drinks alcohol." Or "he/she charges too much" after agreeing to the payment. If living conditions are not to your liking you move, right? You don't stay and refuse to pay rent.

Ironically, at the same time she victimizes dozens of people, she is running a non-profit organization that purports to help at-risk people. It's called Crossing the Digital Divide. You can find pictures of her on her site:

www.cddnp.org

She claims to make no money in her job there. She claims basically to make no money at all. Why doesn't she get subsidized housing, welfare, etc? She seems to prefer to rip off people who really don't have the money to lose in the first place.

This is about Kathleen Patton, not the 'non-profit' she hides behind; Julieanna Thompson responding to Ms. Patton's fabrications & exaggerations...

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

In rebuttal to the rebuttal of Kathleen Patton, submitted is the following information:


The RipOff Report concerning Kathleen Patton's rental scamming has little or nothing to do with the 'non-profit' with which she is associated, unless it is later deemed that the non-profit is related to her behavior and intentional rental scamming with harassment. The fact that she does not pay judgments (approx. $50,000 due) indicates that she and any monies may be hiding behind this non-profit.

This RipOff Report is an informal bringing together of several victims'/leasing agents or sublessors' situations with Kathleen Patton when she, Ms. Patton, 'rented' from them but ended up not paying rent to them and scaring or harassing in general.

However, my own story is prevalent in this Report, which Ms. Patton recognized. Since Ms. Patton has used my name, I (Julieanna Thompson) will respond at this time, although I have heard that other victims intend to also respond or file reports. My RipOff Report included the "past" (although Ms. Patton is still in my home and will be leaving in a week or so); this was done because other victims or past, and some of their experiences were included in the Report.

Please see links in the original and updated/edited RipOff Report, regarding Ms. Patton's rental and criminal history.

------------

In my case, (as is usual in past cases), Ms. Patton's rent check was not good from the beginning, soon after her signing the contract. Therefore, my obligations as a Sublessor did not have to be met, except to provide electricity and water as she kept possession of the/her Room, until eviction. However, many of the obligations were still met.

Ms. Patton states that she "won" the first Unlawful Detainer (U.D.) / eviction suit I had against her. However, the case is permanently sealed. The public will never know "what happened". But the Plaintiff (myself) knows and the Defendant NOW knows - that the case (in which I acted in pro per/as my own attorney) was released back to the original condition/restitution in "favor" of Defendant, because I used an outdated 3-day notice to pay or quit. This was fatal to my case. Hence, I had to start over...and did so with an attorney this time. We won a judgment for immediate eviction, and the Writ of Possession has already been issued. (There is no turning back.)

However, as usual, Ms. Patton will twist the truth, and has done so in saying that she "won" and the reason she won was because of things like my boxes in the room and my [supposedly] "not surrendering" the room to her! Absurd of course.

-------------

Ms. Patton, in true "twisting form", has twisted the entire story, saying that I did not meet my obligations, and therefore she didn't pay. However, which comes first, the chicken or the egg? You pay your full rent when you start the rental and sign a Contract. If it's not paid, then you must discuss (impossible to rationally discuss with her) and work it out; or evict. She never showed good faith or paid during a 3-day notice to pay or quit, either.

Again stated, her check was not good for cashing for seven days into the rental because of Insufficient Funds; and then I was advised by my attorney to deposit said check to see what would happen. Ms. Patton put a "stop payment" on the check, which in California law, is still non-payment of rent.

I had googled her name and found that she was and is a serial-rental-scammer, loosely called "Serial Squatter". My case was no different. (again, see links in the first RipOff Report about Ms. Patton.)

Then Ms. Patton claimed she didn't have certain perks that went along with renting, even though she hadn't paid her rent! She has blatantly lied concerning her not having the room "surrendered" to her, partially furnished. And it was established that since she would be leaving within approximately 30-60 days, she would not bring any furniture in...She even agreed to that. She would use some of my furniture. She has enjoyed the use of a tile table for her computer and other of my items which support some of her belongings.

Upon legal inspection of the Room, I saw that she is willingly using the furnishings for herself. She rented the Room partially furnished anyway...begged to move in early, necessitating my quickly removing boxes in her room, which I did the night she moved in (a few boxes remaining, which my Contract stated I had time to remove, as convenient for everybody).

To demonstrate the twisted and blackmailing type mind of this woman (for whom I actually harbor some compassion as well as disgust), the few boxes remaining could not be removed because she would never allow me access to her room (with her there), her making pale excuses all the time. This went on for weeks. Yet she would turn it around and tell me that I wasn't removing the boxes, therefore, she shouldn't have to pay rent!

A dangerous mind, in my book.

You know, if anyone would "breathe the wrong way", that would be an excuse for this woman to hold something against you. A type of harassing. I ended up calling the Police for keeping the peace as I retrieved my belongings in the room. They did help, and I was finally able to retrieve my belongings in a matter of minutes. She will call this "harassment".

Upon advice of the Sheriff's Dept. in nearby Marina del Rey, (they seemed to know about her), on two other occasions I called the police who provided advice to me...and I have visited the Culver City Police Department concerning a matter that cannot be stated here at this time, related to this case.

---------

As for Ms. Patton's description of my lovely "treehouse" chalet-type home with running streams three floors below, it became less lovely as I stopped re-arranging it from a re-renovation - the minute I learned (in a day or so) that I was dealing with a con-artist. This has taken a LOT of my time. My place is not as bad as she describes, praytell. And she has been living in hog-heaven in one of the most beautiful and relatively large rooms on this property!

Understandably, I have wanted to be away from my own home while this parasitic woman languishes there; and, following a few years political activism break, I had wanted to restart my arts and Yoga business a.s.a.p., but could not, with her there. As a result, I have lost not only rental money, but business monies as well.

I have chosen to be more away from my home than usual and have left the re-arrangement of my place for when she leaves. Even so, she enjoys a lovely environment, though she does seem like a very sad yet angry person. She begged to move in early. (Even if a dwelling is in completely perfect condition, she will, I suspect, find something "wrong" to hold against you--be careful if she ever ends up in your home!)

I have photos of my place including her room/dressing room/bath, etc. before she moved in...the brand new carpeting, the freshly painted expansive high-beamed ceiling room, bathroom attractive, etc., and I have witnesses to that, prior to her moving in. I hope that when she leaves in a week or so, she leaves the room in essentially the same condition as when she moved in. To her credit, she appears to be keeping the room clean and neat and is neat in the kitchen, except for her garbage (I have to clean up too often after her, strange...!).

---------------

I have had guests and friends stay with me, especially for protection, as advised by attorneys and family members out of state. While Ms. Patton may not have a tendency toward violence, she definitely does, toward violating -- violating your space, psyche, finances, and well-being. She is quick to make a victim of you while trying to portray herself as the victim. In addition, there is pathological lying involved, as in her rebuttal. This state of mnd could snap and implement violence, according to what I read. Hence, I have tried to be careful, yet be free to be myself.

She needs to be stopped. Society needs protection from her egregious behaviors and ripoffs.

I feel a duty toward Justice! I am glad for this Forum.

Justice ultimately rectifies...blesses all involved, including perpetrator(s) of egregious, felonious and/or fraudulent acts.

This went on for weeks. Yet she would turn it around and tell me that I wasn't removing the boxes, therefore, she shouldn't have to pay rent!

A dangerous mind, in my book.

You know, if anyone would "breathe the wrong way", that would be an excuse for this woman to hold something against you. A type of harassing. I ended up calling the Police for keeping the peace as I retrieved my belongings in the room. They did help, and I was finally able to retrieve my belongings in a matter of minutes. She will call this "harassment".

Upon advice of the Sheriff's Dept. in nearby Marina del Rey, (they seemed to know about her), on two other occasions I called the police who provided advice to me...and I have visited the Culver City Police Department concerning a matter that cannot be stated here at this time, related to this case.

As for Ms. Patton's description of my lovely "treehouse" chalet-type home with running streams three floors below, it became less lovely as I stopped re-arranging it from a re-renovation - the minute I learned (in a day or so) that I was dealing with a con-artist. This has taken a LOT of my time. My place is not as bad as she describes, praytell. And she has been living in hog-heaven in one of the most beautiful and relatively large rooms on this property!

Understandably, I have wanted to be away from my own home while this parasitic woman languishes there; and, following a few years political activism break, I had wanted to restart my arts and Yoga business a.s.a.p., but could not, with her there. As a result, I have lost not only rental money, but business monies as well.

I have chosen to be more away from my home than usual and have left the re-arrangement of my place for when she leaves. Even so, she enjoys a lovely environment, though she does seem like a very sad yet angry person. She begged to move in early. (Even if a dwelling is in completely perfect condition, she will, I suspect, find something "wrong" to hold against you--be careful if she ever ends up in your home!)

I have photos of my place including her room/dressing room/bath, etc. before she moved in...the brand new carpeting, the freshly painted expansive high-beamed ceiling room, bathroom attractive, etc., and I have witnesses to that, prior to her moving in. I hope that when she leaves in a week or so, she leaves the room in essentially the same condition as when she moved in. To her credit, she appears to be keeping the room clean and neat and is neat in the kitchen, except for her garbage (I have to clean up too often after her, strange...!).

---------------

I have had guests and friends stay with me, especially for protection, as advised by attorneys and family members out of state. While Ms. Patton may not have a tendency toward violence, she definitely does, toward violating -- violating your space, psyche, finances, and well-being. She is quick to make a victim of you while trying to portray herself as the victim. In addition, there is pathological lying involved, as in her rebuttal. This state of mnd could snap and implement violence, according to what I read. Hence, I have tried to be careful, yet be free to be myself.

She needs to be stopped. Society needs protection from her egregious behaviors and ripoffs.

I feel a duty toward Justice! I am glad for this Forum.

Justice ultimately rectifies...blesses all involved, including perpetrator(s) of egregious, felonious and/or fraudulent acts.


(Justice produces true Peace, then)

#28 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Julieanna Thompson commits defamation, fraud and slander, against well-respected Non-Profit Organization.

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

The author of this untrue report is Julianna Thompson of Culver City California. She has posted this report to retaliate against me personally and in her thirst for blood and revenge is hoping to injure a highly respected organization. Ms. Thompson understands that California has laws protecting renters from a roommate or landlord who wishes to retaliate due to some dispute or lawsuit. Ms. Thompson also understands that the non-profit organization she is targeting has been doing very good work for several years helping some of Los Angeles' most at risk adults. Even though Ms. Thompson understands that the organization does good work; however her own personal, petty concerns are more important than the needs of the hundreds of severely in need adults who benefit from the programs offered by the non-profit organization. Ms. Thompson's exaggerated and distorted view of her of her own importance is clear. She would consider it a victory in case she could undo the entire organization just to get at the one person she wants to see effected. I think that tells everything you need to know about this author.

Ms. Thompson rented a room to me a few months ago. She agreed, in writing, to rent a non-furnished room, with Private Parking, use of the Common Area and only to be shared with her and myself for $1,200.00. This was also to include Internet and Cable TV. Instead I paid rent for a room, which was full of her belongings and she has still, 4 months later, not surrendered or vacated the room. I have already been advised that this is fraud. I have not filed a report only out of kindness but I will now reconsider. It is not doing anyone a favor by keeping this roommate out there offering a room when she has no plans on actually making the room available. The person's apartment is full of boxes and piles of stuff from top to bottom with a narrow path cleared for walking and a couple of chairs open in the living room. She is what is known as a hoarder, someone who compulsively has the need to hold onto everything, creating large piles. I have taken photos of every room for my record.

Ms. Thompson not only refused to vacate the room, she also reneged on ever other part of our written agreement. She never provided parking; I have been forced at times to park up to mile away from the building in this dense area. She did not provide the keys to get into the complex (also another broken promise) forcing me to wait for someone to open and follow people into the complex. (I was only provided keys to the actual apartment but a separate key is needed to enter the complex.) There has been at least one other person living here the entire time as well. I was very clear that I wanted to rent a place with just one other person. Ms. Thompson promised it would just be two people in the apartment; however, some strange man has been sleeping on the living room floor the entire time. She introduced him to me but he has a foreign name and seems to be unemployed. He sleeps all day on the floor snoring. Ms. Thompson also sleeps in the living room on the couch! It makes it impossible to have any use of the common area.

A 4th person occupies the 2nd bedroom, which was supposed to be her room. Would you pay full rent that you originally agreed to pay when you understood two people would share and it turned out to be four? I have been the leaseholder and owner myself and would never hide the fact that I actually had other roommates. Also, in this 2nd bedroom, she did the same thing to this person. The room is full of her belongings and he has a small area where he is able to place a sleeping bag. I have also taken photos of this room when the door was been left open to show as further proof of fraud.

Ms. Thompson only provided Internet for a short time. She turned it off without warning forcing me to install my own line and leaving me without for several days. But this is nothing compared to the on going chaos, harassment and personal attacks she creates on a daily basis. Ms. Thompson does not have a job or otherwise seems to have a tremendous amount of free time. When someone has free time and is envious of someone who has a successful and worthwhile business; that person can glom onto you making you (or the undoing of you) their reason for living. This has been the case with Julieanna Thompson. Ms. Thompson after 5 minutes of my moving in needed my every attention. She wanted to hold a meeting to discuss things constantly. Because I work from home, that made me a sitting duck, I have been subjected to constant harassment. I finally told her I could not talk during working hours and she began leaving notes. The notes piled up; they would also have taken hours out of my day in case I tried to respond. I gave her notice to move within 24 hours of moving in and told her to leave me alone for those 60 days. I told her that I would have to get a Restraining Order in case she would not stop the harassment. She has the gall to, instead of respecting my wish and just leave me be, to instead try to file a Restraining Order on me! She had no proof of any harassment on my part, of course and so she was not successful, however I lost several days having to defend myself in court. I also had to hire an attorney. She also had the gall to try to file an Unlawful Detainer against me but I won that case. The court sided with me. Instead of then finally leaving me alone and allowing me the 60 days to relocate she refilled the UD. Unfortunately, after loosing several days of work in and out of court and dealing with her constant interference, I was not able to take yet another day off of work for that matter. I am most likely going to have the Judgment Set Aside but will certainly be suing her for damages.

I really thought she might have finally stopped the harassment the last few days but I can see that she is now taking it behind my back on this website. Ms. Thompson has refused every offer I gave her to Mediate or settle our differences amicably. Even her best friend stopped by early on to try to come up with a resolution and the friend told me that $1,200.00 was too much for the room and that was before she knew that the room would not be cleared of the belongings, no parking would be provided and the 4 roommates in the unit; give me a break! Please remember her name and do not rent a room from this person. Please let her know how you would feel in case you gave money for an unfurnished room and the room was never provided. Let her know how you feel about her playing the victim. Most importantly, let her know how you would feel in case she came after the company where you worked or after your job, in order to get to you. It is one thing to have these disputes with a roommate but another for the roommate to take it beyond your private home life to where you work. I do not believe this website was designed for individuals who have a vendetta against another person. I will be contacting the owner of the website about this but in the meantime please let this person know your view of this underhanded way she is going after me personally by coming after the non-profit organization. Do you think hundreds of adults who are in desperate need should suffer so that this one person can enjoy her revenge?

What's this?
The good ol' Internet, via "google", has successfully given at least some warning concerning this ripoff con-artist, a soft-voiced, deceptive manipulator/scammer. (And if she ever lives under the same roof with you, you'll get a substantial dose of "let's work it out"; then harassment and psychological threats--especially legal threats, even if subtly given...your living in fear at first, then in disgust...then you try to tune in to the "transcendent" place where "she doesn't matter" while you wait for the eviction process to culminate)!

She will try to make you the one making her the victim--while she victimizes you. She will twist things around and try to twist you around her little scammy fingers! She owes over $50,000 in judgments! (some cases haven't posted to the Internet as yet).

It's one of the most bizzare experiences I've ever had. Yes, I was one of the victims...lost money, time, well-being, until I could finally get her out by way of a drawn-out eviction process, indeed losing money and work time and peace of mind in the process.

She lived under the same roof with me. I had certain friends stay with or visit me at various times while she languished in her beautiful room for which she was paying no rent, guzzling tons of electricity via high-heating and lighting, staying in her room virtually 24/7 except for occasional grocery or other such visits out...and her necessary ventures to the kitchen for a meagre meal or tea...such slinky appearances, if I was there, were seen by me as most bizarre, inclusive of sunglasses worn in a rather shaded home!

She's ready to threaten you with her cellphone or tape-recorder worn - to tell you if you "say anything" to stand up for yourself, she'll "record" it. At first this is scary. But after awhile, it's ridiculous and sick.

Eviction included waiting over 60 or so days that it takes for just that: in my case it took about 90+ days due to logistics. Eviction; horrors, 60, 90 or more days when you really want her to leave yesterday. Some people have had to put up with her as long as eight or nine months! She paid "just enough" to string them along; or the attorney didn't get on it right away, etc., etc. The laws must change, to be more equitable to landlords and sublessors.

This con-artist lives in the legal-loopholes--and puts you in a hopefully-temporary blackhole in the throes. And, she never pays judgments, so your money will be gone, gone, gone. She hides herself and any money there might be - behind the "non-profit". She tells that she wants to and "WILL" buy property sometime soon in Arizona (likely at all vicitims' expense, i.e., if even true). She may sue you, she definitely threatens that, but the courts are on to her and her "suits" in Small Claims and the like are ridiculous, laden with lies.

Beware, of course!! Below are the websites, put up anonymously, to look at for a shock and blatant warning to "stay away". If you are a lawyer or consumer advocate or a member of the FBI or D.A.'s Office, please feel free to contact us. We feel that this is a criminally-charged situation.

We have more to say than what this Report tells. Indeed, I will be glad to tell you my experiences with her; and other victims will share, too. We would like to see this stopped. This person is a menace to society; a pathological liar; and sociopathic, conscienceless person where she wants it to be like that; and just plain strange. It is at first difficult to "believe" that she is a "con" - in that she ropes you in, "sweetly" with the backdrop of her do-good non-profit organization that helps former prisoners!

Once she's in your dwelling, she'll turn controlling; threatening;and occasionally aggravatingly child-like--while she rips you off and makes a psychological nightmare for you. (The woman has got to be sick and/or on some kind of altering drug.)

(I was taken in by the "nice work" she appears to do with the non-profit; and by her so-called desperation to find a place because of "special circumstances".)
