Six months my book Halftime Hustler was released and since then all hell has broken loose.  I was aware that I would face challenges due to the fact that I so openly shared so many personal things about my past and time in prison but nothing prepared me for what actually ensued.  

Within weeks, appeared.  From there it has spiraled to include others such as Topix forum,, scam alerts in my residential community, and probably a host of others I am not yet aware of.  I did not understand at first what triggered this but after months of careful investigation with the help of acquainstances, I uncovered some interesting but devastating findings.  Namely, the originating author of these gossip sites is really just one person, my neighbor George F. Semeil.  All of the sites are seemingly from a host of people (both male and female) whose locations vary all over the country but the reality is  that it's George Semeil posing as these various people to make it seem like there is multitude of people that I have supposedly scammed. [continued below]....
.....  While this is alarming, what is even more alarming is that he has not only been masquerading as miscellaneous people but that his given name, George S. Francis is not actually his name!  His true name is George F. Semeil!  

It's understandable why he does not want to go by his real name because when you look up George F. Semeil you will discover that he himself has many skeletons in his closet.  Ironically, as he is busy slandering me and putting down the fact that I served time in my past (even though I openly admit this in my book) he himself served time himself!  Not in an ordinary prison though; his time was served in Atascadero State Prison (google for some info on this.  In a nutshell though, the patient population consists of males who "have a mental disability, and pose a threat to others or themselves."  The majority of the patient population consists of: mentally ill inmates, mentally disordered offenders, patients who have been found incompetent to stand trial, and patients who have been found not guilty by reason of insanity."  
This made it a little more clear why George was spending endless hours locked up in house writing blog after blog on me.  At first his posts mainly focused on how I had a past as a con artist and how I am still conning today.  He accuses me of scamming those in my community in the name of the non-profit organization for juveniles at risk that I have worked for drama free for over 4 years prior to George.

I initially responded to these posts in self-defense but later realized that the more I responded, the more George Semeil wrote.  He then expanded his attacks to now include my family and friends, causing undo stress to anyone associated with me.  He has called associates of mine, refusing to give his name or number, and asked about me.  If they did not 

Hence the fact that George has mental issues.  First of all, he is rarely seen in public according to his neighbors.  When he is out, it's early in the morning where he will walk the neighborhood carrying a large stick (paranoia???)  His "wife" (who turns out to be a relative) is NEVER seen out (control issues???).  All his defamatory comments about my living high and driving nice cars stems from jealousy since he owns no property himself (living off others as he accuses me of doing!!!) and on top of that, the home that he so proudly acts like he owns does not even have his name on but rather Concetta Manzano's  and is currently in foreclosure.

He demonstrates many of the characteristics of not only paranoia but also OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) in which a person fixates on a particular task (or person in this case).  He is also a habitual liar. He actually went as far as filing a restraining order on me for supposedly forcing my way into his home and threatening his families life.  Not surprisingly, there was no police report made on the day of this alleged incident and also he did not file the restraining order, his "wife", Concetta Manzano did.  His restraining order was denied and on the day of our court appearance re: it, he actually lied under oath about his name being George S. Francis and his "wife" pretended she spoke very little English (his excuse as to why he filled out the paperwork for her on the restraining order). That's peculiar as we had many a conversation on her couch a year and half ago when this "nice little old couple" watched my then 18 month old daughter for a few months.  I should have known then what kind of a man I was dealing with when one month we were an hour late picking up my daughter and he called me up and cussed me out claiming I was disrespecting his "wife" and going on a tirade for many minutes.  

We parted ways for over a year and a half and it wasn't until October of 2012 when my book was released that I heard from him again, only this time via the internet where he has even called me the "N' word (albeit though through the  ficticious name of Helen out of Los Angeles that he created his first Ripoff site on me to slander and sabotage my book and name. I started also getting personal attacks from my E-mail telling me to get out of El Dorado Hills and "RUN WHILE YOU CAN YOU b*****d" This man is sick and need some help before he harms more people that are not aware of his mental issues.  He will attack and seem like he is someone else that is believable in his storytelling...He is a real Sociopath.

In conclusion, this posting will sure to ignite more hatred and slander from George but reader be ware.  Know that this is not real and is simply a twisted "game" this man is playing with me.  If you want to know more about me, please visit the many positive sites on me and my book; of course you will need to scroll down past the reports!

Very interesting that Ralph and Lauren Sanders are now "bankrupt" per a discharge of all of their debts, including the money and products they obtained illegally. 

Sometimes by "winning", you are actually losing.  Consider the current case of New Jersey Housewife stars Teresa and Joe Guidice.  They thought that bankruptcy was the easiest way to slide out from under their debts, and now they are facing a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

Teresa and Joe are also accused of hiding their assets during their bankruptcy petition.  From the IRS "today's indictment alleges the Guidices did not live up to their responsibilities by failing to file tax returns, falsifying loan applications and concealing assets in their bankruptcy petition.  The reality is that this type of criminal conduct will not go undetected and individuals who engage in this type of financial fraud should know they will be held accountable."

I personally would prefer to face a bunch of angry credit card companies demanding payment vs. the cold, ruthless and calculated investigation of the justice department and the IRS.

Ralph and Lauren Sanders, enjoy your momentary "win".

Justice & Truth

AUTHOR: Justice and Truth - ()

Dear Ralph and Lauren:

Read the following ~ Real time.  These clowns (the Guidices) thought they were getting away with lying too. 

Two of the stars of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have been indicted on federal charges, accused of conspiring to defraud lenders and of hiding assets during a bankruptcy proceeding, federal officials in New Jersey said Monday.

Teresa Guidice, 41, and her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Guidice, 43, both of Towaco, N.J., are scheduled to make their first court appearance Tuesday.

The pair, who have been stars of the television show since it premiered in 2009, could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted of the top charge in a 39-count indictment, which alleges conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud and making false statements.

"The indictment returned today allges the Guidices iied to the bankruptcy court, to the IRS and to a number of banks," U.S. Atty. Paul J. Fishman said.  "Everyone has an obligation to tell the truth when dealing with the courts, paying their taxes and applying for loans or mortgages.  That's reality."

The Guidices falsely represented on loan applications and supporting documents that they were employed and/or receiving substantial salaries when, in fact, they were either not employed or not receiving such salaries, the indictment alleges.

Hmmm....I seem to remember you stating in writing on the RipOff Report that you and your wife were making a lot of money...and then in court you testified you didn't have a job.  "Construction" I believe you said ~ with untraceable income.  So which is true.  Big salary or no salary??

And how is it that an unemployed man (as you stated in court) drives an $80,000 car and vacations in Hawaii? 

Read on:

Today's indictment alleges the Guidices did not live up to their responsibilities by failing to file tax returns, falsifying loan applications and concealing assets in their bankruptcy petition.  The reality is that this type of criminal conduct will not go undetected and individuals who engage in this type of financial fraud should know that they will be held accountable." Kitchen, an IRS agent, said.

So who really won in court?  WE DID.  You took yet another step towards thank you for lying and thinking you could get away with it, as you did with all of your victims.  Ponder this:  the IRS is not a blond white woman who you can sweet talk and extort money from...just sayin'.

Orange is a really great color on you.

Sorry to hear Mr. Ralph Sanders is being so devious. Not surprised though, actually Ralph is the Real Convict, Child Molester and Mental Patient!!

AUTHOR: I know the Real Ralph Sanders - ()

My sister was married to this piece of sh*t from1/07 to 4/07 after he was release from Prison for fraud, forgery and burglary. His real name is Ralph Innichina Sanders they got married in Reno. He was afraid his probation officer would discover he was in Reno without permission so they got married again a few weeks later Sacramento. He stole her wedding ring and money from her house. He had her co-sign for a Mercedes and BMW when in fact she was not co-signing but buying the car. He ruined her credit. She had no idea that she was the one who bought the car. My sister was the one who paid his bail at one point of violating his probation and he assured her he would pay her back. He Never did.
It was clear on his probation/parole orders that he was not be around youth.
Due to inappropriate sexual contacts with several minors, the police were called because he made advances on a 14 year old (I believe she was 14, but it could have been 13 or younger) and the mother of the young girl pressed charges.  
He also molested his ex girlfriends son who was under the age of 16. There were court orders for him to stay a certain number of feet away from minors.
My sister in fact had 4 children living with them at that time. They were between the ages of 13 and 4. She had a girl who was 8 and he would invite her into bed with us for a good morning cuddle. Very innocent! She felt uncomfortable but it was only when she was there but allowed it. There was one time though that he invited her in bed with them when he had no clothes on. My sister made sure she was not under the covers but still. Very wrong!! 
I am not surprise at all Ralph is fixating on, and attacking one person he thinks is responsible for exposing his on-going illicit activities with defamatory and slanderous statements. In Ralph sick mind his numerous victims are too stupid, intimidated and scared of him to speak out, so he stupidly focuses on an older couple he considers to be weak.
Ralph my cousin and his wife are renters for over 10 years in Southern California from the man you think you know and slander him as an ex convict and mental patient. How can this person be an ex-con and still be able to hold a government security clearance and still on the payroll of major US Government contractor while recovering at home from a work related injury?  You are such a slime ball who thinks is untouchable. The more you lie on the internet the more your hidden skeletons will come out of the closet. I am so happy to see how foolishly you have attack the wrong people with the right connections, know-how and resources to make you pay for all those you have wronged!

Con man and criminal harasser Ralph Sanders, aka Sean Sanders has changed his method of intimidating his victims!!

AUTHOR: 209-CC - ()

Con man and criminal harasser Ralph Sanders, aka Sean Sanders has changed his method of intimidating his victims. Dispatching his low-life thugs to ring victim's doorbells while trying to pose as Real Estate agents/property appraisers driving vehicles with tinted windows appears to have been futile. Leaving threatening voice mails is not working. Threatening injunctions against harassment against his victims is not working.  Fabricating "debts" that his victims supposedly owe him is not working.  Fraudulently applying for credit under his victims names while using crooked dealerships and Insurance agents to access his victims vehicle information from DMV database.

Now Ralph has introduced a new method of intimidation, which on the surface appears to be a random "spam" email, but is actually carefully constructed to include the names of law enforcement personnel, private investigators and other well-to-do professionals.

Please be on the alert for any "spam" emails from Ralph Sanders.  Not only are these emails are pure fabrications showing his "connections", they violate injunctions against harassment that have been filed against him.

Ralphs new method of intimidation and harassment demonstrates how ignorant he is to the workings of the Internet and modern technology!!

lf you are under libelous attack by a person who has deceived and defrauded you, there is a possibility that the person is a sociopath. Sociopaths have no heart, no conscience and no remorse. Like Ralph S**** they will lie, cheat and steal from you and then tell everyone that it is your fault. Con artists like Ralph often use this tactic to cover up their own behavior and convince others that they are the ones being victimized.

It is impossible for healthy people to imaging how a sociopath thinks. Try for a moment imagining having no conscience? The best way to sum it up is "You are not a person to a sociopath". The shortest route between a sociopath and his or her agenda is a straight line, regardless of whom or what stands in their way.

Injunction of Harassment

AUTHOR: Judith - (USA)

Author Ralph Sanders writes on March 9, 2013 in RipOff report #1026182
"I uncovered some interesting but devastating findings".  Yes, we will
all agree that these findings are very devastating indeed - but not to
anyone except Ralph Sanders these words he has permanently
recorded on a public site are obviously false, obviously intended to defame the Francis' character,
obviously intended to harass the Francis'...and can easily be proved as

George and Concetta Francis - I would encourage you to
file an Injunction of Harassment against Ralph Sanders for the libelous
statements contained in this latest post.  Although initially reporting
as "Tiffany from Hawthorne Hills", the author then identifies himself as
Ralph Sanders of El Dorado Hills, California.

Ralph is no longer allowed to make contact with, nor write any defamatory statements
against me, Judith Richey, the photographer he stole images from for the
cover of his book "Half Time Hustler" and for his website.  An
Injunction of Harassment has been obtained in Maricopa County Arizona
against Ralph Sanders and subpoenas are being served to identify the
true author(s) of libelous statements made about me and another
individual noted as "photographer" George Francis. 

Filing another Injunction of Harassment against Ralph will prevent him from
making up false identities, spreading untrue and sordid gossip (be it
sexual, financial or spiritual in nature), leaving threatening phone
messages, visiting your home or harassing you in any way.  It will be
one less victim he can intimidate without repercussion.

George Semeil , Carlos, exposed

AUTHOR: Tiffany - (United States of America)

Attached letter further proves that George Semeil started playing his games months prior to his fixation on me.  He now attacks author Casey Jones who was once thought to be his ally until she turned her support onto Ralph Sanders.  See letter for more details.
