EdenLiesObscured: Read about this the other day. The "photographer" has incredible kahunas. He's a gutsy shyster who works really, really hard at cheating the system so he doesn't have to work sort of hard. But his mouth and blatant lying after being presented evidence are keeping him in hot water. This defamation suit is a dying grasp....


Is this the guy?

IlGreven: MSFT: So... did I miss the part about him claiming to have cancer? Or was that a joke that went over my head?

In the comments on the CJ FB page, there's this (reposted in the comments at TFA):

"I have a comment/question that is totally different from ANY of the 450 comments on here....Is he still sick and dying? When I met him last April, he would tell me every week that he had various treatments for Cancer and liver dialysis --that he was in fact dying..Ii would always try to ask for upcoming information and help him with any moral support I could, but it was very difficult because he would become very defensive and dismissive if I dare asked a question. He was VERY sick every week or every other week -constantly...and then in the 9 months since I last had contact with him, I have never seen him make any mention of it....Is he still sick or was the Cancer cured?"


His story is in remission too.

I thought that this comment on the Photostealers page about this story was interesting:  I was just going through some comments on his Facebook page and what strikes me the most is that it's ALL women. You can go for SCREENS and, with the exception of a few nay saying men (mostly from here, I bet :) ) ALL of the supporters are women.

Good Behavior Day: The only reference to cancer I found was someone on his FB page saying Chris Jones told him he was having radiation treatments.  Unfortunately, Chris Jones is such a common name Google can't tell me much.


I work with a Chris Jones.  I'll check with him Monday and ask how his oncologist visits have been going.  He's only 19 though and in pretty good shape, so I'm guessing he'll pull through just fine.

limeyfellow: EdgeRunner:

It's sad how common those stories are, especially the "left my wife and kids in the car" detail. I'll toss a few bucks at a panhandler for a good story, but I don't reward lazy, recycled cliches. Start doing that and it's a slippery slope to padding out your Blu-Ray collection with W.S. Anderson movies.

Yup, that guy gets money. It's like giving money to a college roommate, except better because he won't be banging the hooker on your couch.

Someone should point this thieving asshole "photographer" at Charles Carreon, so the thieving asshole can ask Charles how he thought going after a web site willing to back up its claims went for him.
