Went on a tour with Tracy,Texas Ghost Tour,where she was paid cash for entering private property,of which she said she had written permission to enter this property,saying the owner lived in Saudia Arabia,which I did think was a bit strange. Allowing us to do a paranormal tour here,charging tax on ticket and signing waiver before entering property at The Stewart Mansion. Tracy also said she worked for the Historical Society and was chairman on the board there.She also took collections for the Historical Society, for the At Risk properties where The Stewart Mansion is listed.
Later,read a post on Tracy's website that the Mansion would be demolished on Dec. 15th, 2012. I decided to hunt the owner of The Stewart Mansion up online,to inquire to be sure of this date,as I wanted one more trip to the Mansion before being demolished,if this was in fact true. Within 10 minutes, I not only found the owners,Todd and Lori Edwards,of Stonehenge Real Estate Co., but I was also on the phone,talking with the owner,Lori Edwards. She stated she lived in Houston,Texas, #2: NO,it was NOT being demolished on 12/15/2012; #3: They had given NO ONE permission to be on the property.; #4: Anyone else caught on the property would be picked up by the police and taken to jail. So,Tracy has no feelings nor cares about what happens to the people she takes there,a they are looked upon as trespassing; breaking and entering. Not a pretty sight on your record when you had a clean sheet and the cost of getting out of jail,a lawyer and court cost and fees, could make it a very expensive trip,which most people would not even have the money to pay for all of that. All, just to line Tracy's pocket.
Then.there's one lie,so I called The Galveston Historical Society next. NO,she does NOT work for them, much less a Chairman of the board. The only contribution she made to them was for $50.,and that is because a policeman made a check out,made out to the Society. Lucky for him,that he wrote in,who it was for. All the cash contributions, never made it past Tracy's pocket.
I noticed on Tracy's website,she is asking for contributions for 3 non-perishable products each or an unwrapped boy/girl toy each for $5.00 per ticket for her tour. One is for Toys for Tots; Food is for Gleaning of the Harvest and Women's Crisis Center. I called Women's Crisis Center and I was informed,that NO,they do not have anyone actively taking donations for them,in their name.
It is a shame that Tracy is so believable,and spreading all this fraudulent stuff on her web site, it is so easy to believe. But she is a thief,liar,a great con-artist and I guess a bit stupid too,since I am sure,she thought no one would check on her fabrications. Had she never put that demolition date down for The Stewart Mansion,I would never have looked anything up. But her greediness has now caught up with her. She was hoping to get a LOT more business quickly,I guess before Christmas, and before, she knew she could not keep on going without getting caught. So that was her dead-line,I suppose,to con as many people as she could.
Also,on doing research on these buildings,on her walking tour,of which I was also on,her stories on these buildings are also fabricated,I guess to give them more scary appeal for her ghost tour. Galveston has plenty of true ghost and history without lying to the public,just to make a buck out of you. How outrageous !! She actually charges you money for her to lie to you and to allow you to the chance of going to jail on Felony charges.
I am definitely a victim,and hope and pray she can be stopped so she can quit taking people's hard earned money,expecting truth and only being lied to and conned.
