Just finished reading all of this thread. Astounded at the evilness of these people. And to think that there are probably more out there just like them. But what is gratifying here, is the determination and fortitude all of the 'victims' that posted on this thread and how y'all accomplished so much. Good work. And please keep us posted as events proceed.

Default Shameful

I can't believe this thread. I, too, got scammed by Bill Armstrong. I wish I would have found you all sooner. I live in a suburb of Chicago, and I sent him money for Aerosmith tickets ($140). I got the same sob story about his sick wife. I even told him I would say prayers for her (how stupid am I!!) and that I'm a dog lover too. I had a bad feeling after I sent my check, so I googled Bill Armstrong's name and found nothing (this was back in August) until now. THANK YOU, everyone, for working on this. Before I found all of you, I did file a complaint with IC3; they supposedly contact the appropriate police department. Thanks to Jeannie, I just finished e-mailing Judge Anderson. I saw the photos of these crooks; I can't believe they're so old. I wish my grandma were still around -- she would let them have it! They remind me of George Burns in that movie, Going in Style. I will also be contacting the Denmark PD to add my name to the list of complainants. If there are any new developments, let's all let each other know. Thanks, again!

Default William Armstrong

Well, I got a copy of my cancelled money order back from Post Office today. It was cashed at a Wachovia Bank in Philadelphia, PA. I tried calling the bank, but they told me that there is nothing they can do. We have to follow police procedures in order for anything to be done.

I also called the Denmark police again because since speaking to Judge Anderson last week, no investigator has called me back like he told me they would. And now after speaking to the police, I feel absolutely baffled!

The officer, I didn't get his name, told me that what I need to do is send in information on what happened with my transaction with Bill Armstrong. I also need to include my date of birth, height and weight with this information.

What in the name of all that is Holy does my date of birth, height, and weight have to do with anything!! I can't believe this. Am I missing something?? I've never been in trouble in my life and thankfully have never had to file a police report against anyone, so I am naive, but I can't believe it matters how short/tall or fat/skinny I am to press charges against these crooks!!

I really don't mean any offense, but the only thing that comes to mind right now is Barney, Goober and Mayberry.

Before anyone sends personal information, they need to make sure they are actually talking to who they say they are talking to.
