|Online "Anti" Vigilante & Scammers Database
Compiled by Derek W. Logue of OnceFallen.com
Created 1 July 2017; Last Update 28 January 2020
This database was created to assist in identifying known vigilantes and vigilante groups in the US (and some abroad) to help
registered citizens be aware of online groups who have been known to threaten, harass, intimidate or even attack people on the
registry or those connected to people on the registry. Each of these groups are listed because they have been reported to this website
as "Anti" sites. It is recommended that any interaction with any of the people or groups listed here should be properly documented
and reported to the authorities.
This database is a work in progress, thus is not comprehensive. The primary focus for this page is NOTABLE, ORGANIZED efforts
to harass, to threaten, cause harm to, or to scam registered persons, meaning that individual vigilantes will be added only on a case-
by-case basis. Many articles on these people and groups can be found at Absolute Zero Unites, my anti-vigilante blog. Vigilante
Groups and Scammers are listed alphabetically.
"BECAUSE LIBERTY"/ PUNISHER SQUAD -- VIGILANTE, WASHINGTON STATE
Affiliated Name: Curtis J. Hart, Last Known Address- 115 Williams Ave, Kelso WA 98626. (360) 442-1878
CLICK HERE to see more about Curtis J Hart
About: Curtis J. Hart is a political extremist, an active blogger and self-professed "Libertarian" who, among other hobbies, runs a one-
man vigilante group ("Punisher Squad") that conducts online entrapment operations to name and shame people he claims are
"pedophiles". He has also taken to harassing registered citizens both online and in his community. Hart's followers routinely harass
and threaten anti-registry activists online, and that harassment and threatening behavior has been well documented. But most notably,
he is one of a handful of people who are suing the state of Washington to collect info on Level 1 registrants (info not released on the
public registry in WA) so he can harass and bully them as well as publicly. If you live near this person and you are a level 1
registrant, you should file litigation to prevent the courts from releasing the information to Hart.
BIKERS AGAINST ABUSED AND NEGLECTED CHILDREN (BAANC) --
VIGILANTE GROUP, OHIO
Last Known Address: 9413 State Route 99 N, Monroeville, Ohio 44847 (private home owned by Joseph & Pamela Jenkins)
Filed a Form 900 for 2015, claiming 501c3 non-profit status [SEE THE FORMS HERE]
Affiliated Names: Craig Shilling, Laurie Fulk Keller, Rynae Dawson, Lisa Noble, Sara Tuttamore (only possibly), Josh Kaman, Gary
Anthony, Malinda M Taylor, Rick Masters, Dustin Evans, Julie Weyandt, Sue Papenfuss McClure, Steve Collins, Lee Bickley, April
Keller, Hannah Maynard, Maile Zinn, Candi Noftz, Kurt Knowles, Angela Moll, Jeffrey M Gauchat Jr, Kat Reisert, Duane Cyr, Joan
Tennant, Alyssa Holliday, Fred Lesher, Veronica Webb, Kimberly Cole, Brandon Bragg
SUMMARY: This group likes to cosplay as a biker gang not unlike similar vigilante groups. They run a 501c3 under the guise of
raising money for crime victims. Most of their attacks are limited to online activity (primarily via Facebook) but some people have
reported offline harassment such as harassment at work and harassment of family members of their targets. At this time, there have
been no reports of physical attacks associated with this group but it may only be because incidents could have been unreported or
not prosecuted. AZUnites has a report on BAANC HERE.
CLEARMYCASE.COM -- POSSIBLE SCAM TEXAS
Many of the other registry reformist websites consider the registry paperwork service clearmycase.com to be a scam. In 2017, a
number of RCs in activist communities received letters from Clear My Case, a group based in Texas. Florida Action Committee
reported, "Apparently the company is using the Florida Sex Offender registry to solicit registrants, telling them that they “have great
news for you!”, “You may be eligible to deregister.” and “you may be eligible to stop reporting to law enforcement as a sex offender”
and that for $150 they will review their case to let them know if they are eligible to “deregister”. We suggest you do not fall for this.
They are mass-mailing this solicitation to thousands of registrants, 99% of which will not be eligible for removal from the registry. In
our opinion, this company is preying on thousands of desperately hopeful and naive registrants who will fork over $150 to be quickly
and easily told they do not qualify for removal.Here is a quick questionnaire that you should go through in your mind before even
considering their flier:
with experience in registration matters, not some company out of another state.
Clearmycase.com sued FAC but the case was dismissed in January 2018. In July 2018, the website reverted to a generic law
template. It is unclear if this service was legitimate, but oftentimes, a registry removal procedure costs nothing but time to fill out
DONNA ZINK, VIGILANTE, WASHINGTON STATE
Donna Zink, Last Known Address: PO Box 263, Mesa, WA 99343 (509) 265-4417
Last Known Home Address (as of 02/16): 109 N. Rowell Ave., Mesa, WA 99343
CLICK HERE to read more about Donna Zink
ABOUT: Donna Zink is a person who makes a living suing the state over public records laws. She sued her town of residence and
won a case over public records. She's now suing to collect and disseminate information of level 1 registrants. If you are a Level 1
registrant in Washington, you can file litigation to prevent Donna Zink from disseminating your registry info.
FINDYOUAPLACE.COM -- POSSIBLE SCAM, TEXAS
About: A number of activist websites are warning that a website called Findyouaplace.com, based in Houston TX, is run by the same
people who run the ClearMyCase.com website, which is also listed on this page. The website offers a "conditional guarantee" of
connecting with housing for a $99 fee. Since it is run by the same people as ClearMyCase.com, activist sites are concerned that
individuals may not receive the advertised services (clearmycase.com had multiple complaints from unhappy customers). While it is
tempting to pay someone else to make calls on your behalf, it is better to speak to potential landlords directly and be honest about
your background. I offer a housing list as well as house hunting tips on this site for free. CLICK HERE to access the page.
LAUREN'S KIDS -- VIGILANTE GROUP, FLORIDA
Last Known Address: Ronald L. Book, 18851 NE 29th Ave. #1010, Aventura, FL 33180
Affiliated names: Ron Book, Lauren Book, Claire VanSusteren, Ivette Diaz, Randal R. Perkins, Manny Kadre, Charlie Fernandes,
Keith Kenner, Beth Rosenstein, Rockelle S. Matza, Stanford Blake, Bruno Dede, Diane Philbin
SUMMARY: Lauren's Kids doesn't directly go out and directly harass registered persons. Instead, their efforts to harm registrants is
done primarily through rule of law. The 2006 Lauren Book Child Safety Ordinance is responsible for the 2500 foot residency
restrictions in Miami/Dade Co., which forced registrants to live under the Julia Tuttle Causeway and assorted camps in industrial
areas since the ordinance took effect. Foundation CEO Lauren Book now sits on the state Senate, and her father Ron Book
continues to lobby for tougher laws against registrants. In 2017, Senator Book authored a bill to terminate the parental rights of some
registrants (SB1558, which died in committee) and interfere with the ability of some registrants from obtaining jobs as movers
(SB336, which was tabled in favor of a similar bill, which passed). Detailed info on other activities of this organization can be
found at the Floridians For Freedom Blog.
OFFENDEX brand online extortion websites [Chuck Roderick & Brent Olsterblad] --
SCAM & VIGILANTE GROUP, ARIZONA
Last known address: 34522 N. Scottsdale Road, #120-467, Scottsdale AZ 85266 (UPS mailbox rental)
Affiliated websites: Offendex, SORArchives, Bar Complaint, OnlineDetective, CourtKey, Official Service Dog Registry
Names affiliated with this group: Charles “Chuck” Roderick, Brent Olsterblad, Tracy Helsig, and Sarah Shea
SUMMARY: Roderick and Olsterblad run numerous websites designed to extort money from desperate registrants or former
registrants; these sites are designed to dupe victims into believing paying them hundreds will remove names and pictures from the
private registry websites. After their victims pay for removal, the Offndex group opens up new websites, then demand payment for
removal from these new websites. Those who refuse to pay, as well as attorneys, reporters, Roderick’s ex-wife and her new lover,
and the families of registrants have all been targeted. Roderick and Offendex associates lost two major cases, one for $3.4 million,
and one for $300,000, but Offendex continues to operate under numerous websites, continuing a campaign of extortion and
harassment of the site owners’ victims. The Offendex group also runs Facebook pages of their extortion pages and routinely create
fake accounts to generate simulated interest in their websites. This group is reportedly under FBI investigation.
DETAILS: In a 2013 report, AZ Central reported, “Two operators of a network of Arizona websites targeting sex offenders have a
20-year history on the losing side of criminal and civil court actions, legal records show. Chuck Rodrick, 51, and Brent Oesterblad,
52, who have worked together since 2000, both pleaded guilty to fraud charges in the early 1990s and have since faced a variety of
lawsuits, judgments and tax liens, court and other records show. Rodrick had a minor role in what authorities described as one of the
biggest-ever Ponzi-scheme cases in Alaska, which left him facing a federal lawsuit in 1996…Court records show Rodrick’s birth
name is Charles Gilson. Court records show he legally changed his name to Rodrick in 1993 after being convicted as Gilson in
Maricopa County on a felony charge of intent to defraud. Gilson was one of four suspects who pleaded guilty to selling cable-
television descramblers. Gilson was sentenced to 18 months’ probation and ordered to pay a fine. Gilson told the court he was a self-
employed travel broker, buying and selling frequent-flier miles. Three years later, Rodrick was hit with a civil judgment for his part in
a frequent-flier mileage fraud case in Alaska that cost investors as much as $50 million [World Plus]… Oesterblad pleaded guilty to
mail and wire fraud and spent 10 months in a federal prison for his part in an unrelated frequent-flier scam in the early 1990s. Federal
authorities said Oesterblad, along with his siblings, bilked now-defunct Pan American World Airways out of $100,000 by obtaining
awards in the names of bogus customers. After his 1992 sentence, Oesterblad was hit with a $306,000 federal tax lien. Records
show the lien was released in 2001.”
AZ Central also reported: “In a unanimous verdict, jurors hit Valley businessman Charles "Chuck" Rodrick with a $3.4 million
judgment on behalf of three people profiled on websites such as Offendex.com, SORArchives and SexOffenderrecord.com. Rodrick
is accused of running an Internet extortion racket that used public records maintained by law enforcement to demand money from
sex offenders, harassing those who complained. The jury awarded victims almost $500,000 in actual damages and $2.9 million in
punitive damages, agreeing Rodrick defamed them, invaded their privacy, put them in a false light and abused the court system by
filing lawsuits against them as a form of retaliation. A Call 12 for Action investigation in 2013 found Rodrick's sites mined data
compiled by law-enforcement agencies across the country and used it to collect money from sex offenders. Operators did not
always take down profiles after payments were made, and they launched online harassment campaigns against those who balked at
financial demands or filed complaints…Rodrick and Oesterblad, both of whom were convicted on fraud-related charges in the early
1990s, were at the center of state and federal lawsuits. Sex offenders and others named on the websites have accused them of
running an extortion racket. Rodrick and Oesterblad are also accused of posting inaccurate or old information and using the threat of
exposure as leverage in their operation.”
In 2016, a jury awarded the president of a Phoenix-based aerospace company $325,000, saying Rodrick put him in a false light
and intentionally inflicted emotional harm in web postings that accused him of infidelity, having sex with young boys and defrauding
the U.S. government, among other statements.
In October 2013, Attorney Daniel R. Warner terminated Charles Rodrick as a client for refusal to pay his legal fees. However,
Rodrick continued to publish disparaging information on various websites, including the bar complaint he filed against Daniel Warner
— even though the bar complaint (filed in September of 2015) was dismissed on January 20, 2016. The most recent article posted
against Warner is posted on BarComplaint.com on June 29, 2017.
The physical address Roderick uses when filing litigation against his victims is also affiliated with officialservicedogregistry.com, a
website that allegedly offers licenses for “service pets,” a growing scam across America. The Better Business Bureau’s file on
this business states, “On February 1, 2017, BBB requested Official Service Dog Registry substantiate or discontinue offers to sell
made on their website. BBB has received information indicating that consumers fail to receive advertised products after they have
submitted payment in full. BBB requested Official Service Dog Registry substantiate their offer to sell by providing documentation
that shows consumers have in fact received their orders…BBB files indicate this business has a pattern of complaints concerning
problems with product/service, advertising/sales and delivery issues. Complainants allege Official Service Dog Registry fails to
provide dog certifications after paying for the service on the business website at www.officialservicedogregistry.com.”

James Burke, disgraced former police chief serving a prison term for civil rights violations and violent crimes
Dean Skelos, disgraced ex-NY state senator Dean Skelos, in prison for abusing his office
SUMMARY: PFML is rather notorious for two big reasons. First, they are solely responsible for creating and propagating the
100,000 missing registrant myth. Second, they're known for being the only known victim advocacy group in the US that had been
granted the authority to conduct registry compliance operations, a role strictly a power of law enforcement. (The contract between
PFML and Suffolk Co NY expired at the end of 2016; no word on whether that contract was renewed.) PFML agents have used this
authority to harass registrants in Suffolk Co. NY. In addition, Ahearn uses her authority to push for tougher sanctions against
registered citizens. Ahearn has also sued those who protest her organization in attempts to deter opposition.
In 2015, the Suffolk County legislature voted to give PFML an extra $25,000, to be taken from the Crime Victim's Fund (even
though PFML is apparently in charge of the county' crime victim fund, they still need an act of legislature to dip into the victim fund.
Apparently, the extra $25,000 was needed because their liability insurance increased from $4500 a year to $25,000 a year, likely
the result of the numerous lawsuits against them.
In February 2016, the US District Court for the East District of NY ruled that PFML is a "state actor" and can be sued for civil
rights violations. The lawsuit stems from a 2013 incident in which PFML employees without a warrant or even a reasonable
suspicion their target violated any laws, parked out in front of the victim's house, “interrogated” him about his address and car, and
“followed closely behind” as he retrieved his driver’s license from the vehicle. In addition, PFML is suing this website for challenging
the corruption of the organization, leading to this scathing Op-Ed from a retired Suffolk County Supreme Court judge.
PHONY REGISTRY FEE SCAM PHONE CALLS -- ACROSS THE USA
The following press release from the Idaho State Police (and republished in the media) succinctly describes a common phone
scam targeting registered citizens.
Idaho State Police news release
For Immediate Release, Feb. 13, 2018
Contact: Tim Marsano, ISP Public Information Officer, 208.884.7122
News release: Scam on Sex Offender Registrants
The Idaho Central Sex Offender Registry, administered by the Idaho State Police, has been made aware of several attempted scams
targeting registered sex offenders in at least one Idaho county and six Florida counties. One scam involves a caller posing as a law
enforcement officer who tells the sex offender that they have missing or out-of-date registration information. The caller then
threatens that, in order to avoid arrest for failure to register, the registrant must bring a gift/money card to a specified location (other
than the registration office). The caller may provide a callback number with a voice mail message that sounds as if it belongs to the
local law enforcement agency's registration office. In another report, the caller says they are with the sheriff's office and they have
a warrant for being non-compliant. The scammer goes on to say that the only way to take care of it without being arrested is go to
the store and get a money card and give them the card number over the phone.
Anyone receiving such a phone call should not follow the instruction and should immediately report it to the local sheriff's office.
Note that a cop would never call you to warn you that you have a warrant for your arrest.
PREDATOR POACHERS -- HOUSTON, TX
Names Affiliated With This Group: Alex Rosen
Predator Poachers is yet another small group of online hooligans trying to get their 15 minutes of fame.
Indeed, the teenagers running this group make a few racist comments, and the names of some of the videos have racist underones;
For example, one video featuring a sting on an Asian guy was labeled "Ninja Predator" and labeled the victim's walk away from the
group as a "WOK of shame." Another video of a Hispanic man is labeled "Vaquero Predator." Reddit users have also complained
that this group targets people primarily in the LBGTQ community.
Unfortunately, the Houston news media is hyping up this group by giving them coverage.
Apparently, this group was already banned once by Youtube but has a second Youtube account. The founder of this group, Alex
Rosen, complained on Youtube that he was "falsely arrested" for a DWI in Texas around late 2019, even posting a picture of the
arrest report. (Note: he was under 21 at the time, and Texas has a lower BAC requirement when someone drinks while underage.)
They succeeded in getting my post at AZUnites removed and targeted me for harassment, so I have reposted the info here.
They have also created a website doxxing and attacking OnceFallen.com and posting veiled threats against me on a site that was
created to mock another of his victims. He's also posted directory info about this website so he will be suspect #1 next time there is
an attempted hack of my website. I have sent him a cease and desist email after he sent a barrage of emails and attempted to call me
6 times in an 11 minute span on January 23, 2020.
