She's on the run

AUTHOR: Roha - (United States of America)

Sylvia Mitchell, aka ZENA, stole $28,000 from another victim in the fall of 2008.  The victim was initially rebuffed when she sought help from the NYPD and the Manhattan Distict Attorney's Office.  She then contacted Private Investigator Bob Nygaard, who built the Criminal Case against Mitchell.  Nygaard presented the results of his investigation and the evidence to the NYPD Sixth Pct Detectives, who obtained a warrant for her arrest.  Sylvia Mitchell then fled NYC and is currently on the run with Nygaard hot on her tail.   Contact PI Nygaard at 516-596-3443 if you have information of her current whereabouts.  Let's put Sylvia Mitchell in jail where she belongs.

Hey, Steve?

AUTHOR: nixx - (USA)

Youre right.   Gypsy is a pejorative term.  The discussion is off point.  Sylvia Mitchell (Zena)  is a predator preying on the sick and desperate.  She belongs in jail.

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

BUCHAREST, Romania - At first, fans politely applauded the Roma performers sharing a stage with Madonna . Then the pop star condemned widespread discrimination against Roma, or Gypsies and the cheers gave way to jeers.

The sharp mood change that swept the crowd of 60,000, who had packed a park for Wednesday night's concert, underscores how prejudice against Gypsies remains deeply entrenched across Eastern Europe .

Despite long-standing efforts to stamp out rampant bias, human rights advocates say Roma probably suffer more humiliation and endure more discrimination than any other people group on the continent.

Sometimes, it can be deadly: In neighboring Hungary , six Roma have been killed and several wounded in a recent series of apparently racially motivated attacks targeting small countryside villages predominantly settled by Gypsies.

"There is generally widespread resentment against Gypsies in Eastern Europe. They have historically been the underdog," Radu Motoc, an official with the Soros Foundation Romania, said Thursday.

Roma, or Gypsies, are a nomadic ethnic group believed to have their roots in the Indian subcontinent . They live mostly in southern and eastern Europe, but hundreds of thousands have migrated west over the past few decades in search of jobs and better living conditions.

Romania has the largest number of Roma in the region. Some say the population could be as high as 2 million, although official data put it at 500,000.

Until the 19th century , Romanian Gypsies were slaves, and they've gotten a mixed response ever since: While discrimination is widespread, many East Europeans are enthusiastic about Gypsy music and dance, which they embrace as part of the region's cultural heritage.

That explains why the Roma musicians and a dancer who had briefly joined


onstage got enthusiastic applause. And it also may explain why some in the crowd turned on Madonna when she paused during the two-hour show a stop on her worldwide "Sticky and Sweet" tour to touch on their plight.

"It has been brought to my attention ... that there is a lot of discrimination against Romanies and Gypsies in general in Eastern Europe," she said. "It made me feel very sad."

Thousands booed and jeered her.

A few cheered when she added: "We don't believe in discrimination ... we believe in freedom and equal rights for everyone." But she got more boos when she mentioned discrimination against homosexuals and others.

"I jeered her because it seemed false what she was telling us. What business does she have telling us these things?" said Ionut Dinu, 23.

Madonna did not react and carried on with her concert, held near the hulking palace of the late communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.

Her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said Madonna and other had told her there were cheers as well as jeers.

" Madonna has been touring with a phenomenal troupe of Roma musicians who made her aware of the discrimination toward them in several countries so she felt compelled to make a brief statement," Rosenberg said in an e-mail. "She will not be issuing a further statement."

One Roma musician said the attitude toward Gypsies is contradictory.

"Romanians watch Gypsy soap operas, they like Gypsy music and go to Gypsy concerts," said Damian Draghici, a Grammy Award-winner who has performed with

James Brown

and Joe Cocker .

"But there has been a wave of aggression against Roma people in Italy, Hungary and Romania , which shows me something is not OK," he told the AP in an interview. "The politicians have to do something about it. People have to be educated not to be prejudiced. All people are equal, and that is the message politicians must give."

Nearly one in two of Europe 's estimated 12 million Roma claimed to have suffered an act of discrimination over the past 12 months, according to a recent report by the Vienna-based EU Fundamental Rights Agency. The group says Roma face "overt discrimination" in housing, health care and education.

Many do not have official identification, which means they cannot get social benefits, are undereducated and struggle to find decent jobs.

Roma children are more likely to drop out of school than their peers from other ethnic groups. Many Romanians label Gypsies as thieves, and many are outraged by those who beg or commit petty crimes in Western Europe , believing they spoil Romania's image abroad.

In May 2007, Romanian President Traian Basescu was heard to call a Romanian journalist a "stinky Gypsy" during a conversation with his wife. Romania's anti-discrimination board criticized Basescu, who later apologized.

Human rights activists say the attacks in Hungary, which began in July 2008, may be tied to that country's economic crisis and the rising popularity of far-right vigilantes angered by a rash of petty thefts and other so-called "Gypsy crime." Last week, police arrested four suspects in a nightclub in the eastern city of Debrecen .

Bulgaria , the Czech Republic and Slovakia also have been criticized for widespread bias against Roma.

Madonna 's outrage touched a nerve in Romania, but it seems doubtful it will change anything, said the Soros Foundation 's Motoc.

Sylvia Mitchell aka Zena posing as a neighbor--lie

AUTHOR: nixx - (USA)

Sylvia Mitchell

I cant help but laugh at your transparent response to this report.   Posing as a neighbor to defend yourself is right out of the conartist playbook but poorly done.   Ive talked with your neighbors. They think your trash.  The truth is your are a Liar and Thief and do belong in jail. 

This woman swindled me as well.  There is not an ounce of decency in her being.  The humongous crucifix in her shop is a prop and her spiritual gift was passed on or learned from her equally deceiving mother.  

As for foretelling the future. Sylvia Mitchell couldnt give a weather forecast if she looked out the window.

There are other complaints against Sylvia or Zena registered on the website Yelp. Com

Ive heard but have no listing of complaint in Florida.

Please reference report no. 480079 on this site for more information on Sylvia Mitchell aka Zena.  The reader will notice that rebuttals are sent on the same day as the original here.   What a rich coincidence! She is as crooked as they come and I can prove it.

AUTHOR: the right thing to do - (USA)

This comment is very untrue and absolutly ridiculous.  This shop has been in the village for many years some even say it is a landmark.  I live in the area and have seen both Zena and Sylvia many times I refer all my friends and family to them as well. I have never heard a bad remark!  I have gone there with many issues over the years and was never asked for my bank account number.(what would they be able to do with it anyway)? this makes no sense because with my bank I have to go into the bank and show ID and give my social security number this statement about bank accounts makes no sense at all!! One thing is for sure Zena's is more expensive than most but the athmosphere is peaceful and relaxing I always leave satisfied! Yes they require money for their services nothing in life is free but they are always available no matter what time its like therapy without the ticking clock thats got to be worth something!  What is really making me MAD is the name this person who wrote the report is using ''GYPSY BUSTER''.  Gypsy is a bad term the race of people is called romany.  If a jewish person on the famous diamond center sells a bad diamond is it ok to say "jewbuster" and talk bad about all the jews? if i have a bad expierence with a black person should I be able to write "n****r buster" on this site? why dont they just call themselves what they really are Natzis and gather all the people that they feel are bad and burn them! these are my thoughts thank you for listening.
