ANIMAL RESCUE OUTREACH -AKA- TEDI SPICER, Was back in court this morning. This POS woman claimed to be an IL. rescuer but in fact is a serious serial thief, con liar & worse an ANIMAL ABUSER!
Tedi Spicer's crimes go back nearly 30 years. You can view her court docket at:
He was already in jail for fraud and other crimes, yet he managed to lead a massive, two-year identity theft and bribery scheme that earned him a separate 309-year prison sentence—more than twice that of crooked financier Bernie Madoff, and reportedly the fourth-longest in the history of U.S. white-collar crime.
His name is Robert Thompson, and his story is an eye-opening one for consumers and businesses who take the risk of sharing personal information over the telephone.
It began in a Louisiana state prison, where Thompson started stealing a raft of personal information—dates of birth, social security numbers, bank account numbers, credit cards numbers, etc.—from more than 61 individuals, churches, financial institutions, and businesses. That information enabled him to steal from the victims’ bank accounts and use their credit to buy big-ticket items—like appliances, cell phones, and big-screen TVs. He even attempted to purchase a luxury SUV. Most of these items ended up with his partners in crime—accomplices inside and outside prison.
The ruses: Thompson used various methods to gather personal information, but one of his tried-and-true ploys involved calling a bank and pretending to be an elderly stroke victim who had been hospitalized. “I don’t have my checkbook with me and need access to my bank account,” he would claim. Most banks didn’t fall for it, but some did. Thompson also called individual victims directly—sometimes saying he was a state trooper who needed to verify personal details after an identity theft arrest.
The operation: Thompson initially made his calls on prison phones. Knowing he could only make collect calls—in accordance with prison rules—he had his outside accomplices obtain three-way calling services on their personal phones, accept collect calls from Thompson, and dial whatever number he wanted. Since many of the calls were long-distance, he also contacted phone companies—using a phony identity—and had those calls charged to the accounts of various churches.
ID Theft Prevention Tips
Never throw away ATM receipts, credit statements, or bank statements in a usable form.
Never give your credit card number over the telephone unless you make the call.
Reconcile your bank account monthly and notify your bank of discrepancies immediately.
Report unauthorized financial transactions to your bank, credit card company, and the police as soon as you detect them.
Review a copy of your credit report at least once each year. Notify the credit bureau in writing of any questionable entries and follow through until they are explained or removed.
Eventually, prison officials got wind from us of what Thompson was doing, and he was transferred to a special lockdown area in order to keep him away from the phones. But he paid a $10,000 bribe to a corrections officer assigned to his cell block to use the officer’s personal cell phone. So his shenanigans continued.
Thompson also had his accomplices—including a former guard he met at another prison—withdraw money from the phony bank accounts he had set up, pick up merchandise he had ordered, and/or let their home addresses be the delivery points.
The FBI entered the picture in mid-2006 after being contacted by a car dealership that had $50,000 stolen from its bank account. After an extensive investigation, we identified Thompson as the culprit. At least eight of his co-conspirators also have been charged as part of the overall investigation, which was worked closely with state and local law enforcement and corrections officials.
But old habits die hard—after pleading guilty and expressing remorse for his crimes during a 2009 court appearance, Thompson was back working the phones the very next week. The judge had little sympathy during Thompson’s sentencing.
The case is a lesson for us all. “Be crime smart” when it comes to sharing personal information—yours or someone else’s. Don’t give it out over the telephone unless you have verified the identity of the caller.
i need at least 1000 signatures on this petition, to send to judge and show him the seriousness of letting such abuser's back out, for repeat acts of neglect to animals!
this particular judge, if you read my shares, is a t.v. judge at that, that made statements in public that he is not tolerant of abusers, but he let cynthia go the first time around and allowed her to repeat her crimes, then delayed this last hearing til sept.
i am serious that i dont' want this woman out to do things again, and i dont' find that this judge's words hold water when it comes to abuse/neglects.
please cross post this to your friends, i need these signatures in 2 weeks to send this petition to the courts.
Her name is Nellie, which is short for 'tough as nails.' It's an appropriate name given all she's been through.
Last week, as Jan Brasher and her husband were working outside of her father's Grand Slaine home, they noticed a black pick-up truck flying around the corner, dragging something behind it.
"I asked my husband, 'Is that a goat or a dog or what was it?' He said, 'I think it was a dog,' says Jan.
Jan says they yelled at the driver to stop the truck. When he did, they say the driver and a passenger untied Nellie, drug her to the roadside and left her lying there in a pool of her own blood.
"It just made me sick. There was so much blood, and she was just looking at us," says Jan.
Jan turned to her neighbor, Brenda Oldfield for help. Brenda's a long-time dog breeder and animal rescuer who knew Nellie needed immediate care. Not only did she have severe skin wounds, her toenails were ripped out, the pads of her paws worn to the bone, and her knee was so badly injured she'll need surgery.
"Her disposition and her temperment, even in the face of all that pain, was so wonderful that you know, she just wrenched at your heart. You just knew she needed a chance," says Brenda.
Dr. Clifton Bradshaw is caring for Nellie. He says she isn't out of the woods yet. Her wounds could become infected and blood clotting is a possiblity. Her road to recovery will be a long and costly one, but Brenda says she wants to show Nellie not all humans are like the one's who left her on the roadside that night.
Donations in excess of $350 have been given at Grand Saline Businesses to help pay for Nellie's care.
The Van Zandt County Sheriff says his department is aggressively following a couple of leads. They believe juveniles are responsible.
