The truth of this and many of his other deceptions was only a matter of time to come out. In the end he is friendly, talkative, but always angling for something.
IMMEDIATE HELP REQUESTED FROM PEOPLE WHO KNOW STEVE BASSETT
Anyone who knows me is aware of how supportive I can be of people who need help. Steve Bassett was one of those people. What Ive gotten for my generosity is a lawsuit he has filed against me in an attempt after housing him, feeding him, giving him a car to drive, throwing parties for him, getting him gigs, and even donating money to his cause to do
what amounts to extorting money from me. Before this gets out of the UFO/Disclosure community, to where it becomes public knowledge that a community leader is engaging in such behavior, I encourage communicating to Steve to ask him to withdraw his lawsuit. I am up against a deadline today for having to hire a lawyer, so please speak now. What Steve has trumped up is in reaction to my writing about his sneaking out of my house the last time he stayed, having borrowed money
on false pretenses and having not fulfilled his obligation to be on a work exchange for parking with me for months and for what I gave him during that time. I said I would make my writing public if he didnt get square with me to put in time helping me and to pay back $1650 I loaned him:
If you could provide a short-term loan ($1650) to get the shipping payment to Broad Link in Hong Kong ASAP, I will give you my personal guarantee you will be paid back in full no later than the end of the year, and likely sooner, with interest.
Hed arrived Thanksgiving but it was 11 months before he paid me the $1,650 with no interest, and then because I was going to make the story public.
The background is that when he came for what I expected to be a short visit, as he had done a few times before, he said he intended to stay for several months and would be hosting Kim Carlsberg for a couple of weeks during that time. He expected to be using my car, and not only would be staying so long and having a houseguest, but, as usual, he (and she) would be eating my food. Gracious host that I am, with him not even boiling water that would include my cooking for him. Also, on
previous occasions, hed invited people for dinner and for parties that my household put on for him. Pretty nice benefacting, I would say.
With Steve wanting more than I had offered him, he agreed hed be on a work exchange, to begin after the weeks where my house was clogged with Kims books to get pre-orders fulfilled. But a work exchange was not to be. He did nothing for me before he disappeared, more than two months later, and sent me this in an email: When it comes to residence quid pro
quos, the host sets the conditions and the guest either complies or departs. Since I cannot comply with your conditions, I have departed.
This is for the best.
This is like taking merchandise and telling the store youd be keeping it because the price was too high. Huh?
Theres more, none of it flattering to Steve. He has asked for a jury trial, in Maryland (I am in California), where his lawyer is working on a contingency of the $30,000 Steve demands from me for defaming him.
Ive said nothing untrue so he wont win, but he will cost me money and
grief in the process.
