DR JOHN SIEBERT AND UW HOSPITAL MAY BE SPAWNED OUT OF THE SAME MOLD–DECEPTION,NEGLIGENCE AND WANTON DISREGARD FOR THE RIGHTS OF CITIZEN PATIENTS

Scams Inc Investigators have been baffled as to the obstructionist conduct of UW Hospital as it relates to patient healthcare and safety and patient interaction with confirmed thief and molester of victim patients.

We have conducted a preliminary investigation into UW Hospital and its conduct and have revealed a sordid trail of bad acts by UW. Such include denying care; use and cover-up of contaminated instruments; unsanitary conditions; denying care and ‘Playing God’; causing brain disorders due to rampant malpractice; reuse of syringes causing patient injury; and much more.

It is no wonder why UW Hospital and its law department have embarked on a ‘cover-up’ of Siebert’s mutilation of patients physically, emotionally and financially. UW Hospital doesnt seem to care about—

‘HEAL THY PATIENT DO NO HARM’—— UW Hospital only seems to care about money and screw the patients safety and rights as healthcare providers.

It looks like UW Hospital and vulture Siebert are spit out of the same hole——

NYU-Langone, Lenox Hill and MEET Hospitals in NYC kicked John Siebert out after Hearings and findings that he abused and molested patients and issued contra-indicated narcotics—

UW Hospital find thIs ‘A-OK’ just as long as this Midwestern Sociopath Siebert brings in cash to UW Hospital from the Plastic Surgery Clinic where UW has installed sociopath Siebert——-

A disgrace to the Rules of Healthcare? yes to be sure. Particularly since NY State Department of Health are investigating Siebert for the termination of his medical license.—–stay tuned—-

DR JOHN SIEBERT’S SUPPOSED ‘MIDWESTERN CHARM’ OR IS IT HIS ‘MIDWESTERN CON’ MANIPULATES UW HOSPITAL OR DOES UW HOSPITAL MANIPULATE AND IMPERIL PATIENTS FOR FINANCIAL GAIN AT VICTIM PATIENTS EXPENSE?

Scams Inc and its Investigators and Reporters have communicated with Dr. John Siebert’s victim patients and with the Hospitals in NYC that fired this confirmed sex pervert as SWORN-TO by Siebert’s Patients by afidavit and other documents. Siebert was held to task at NYU-Langone Hospital in NYC and after weeks of hearings Siebert was canned/fired. Siebert was fired by Lenox Hill and MEET Hospitals as well.

Enter UW Hospital in Madison Wiss. UW has been previously been charged with unsanitary operating rooms, use of unsanitary needles and other infractions. UW Hospital seems desperate for revenue.

Seems that the have intentionally turned a blind-eye to Siebert’s scams healthcare frauds, patient-sex-attacks as revealed by Muriel Karass, Diane Kleiman, Linda M,Miss Rachel and others who communicated with us about Siebert’s sex and financial attacks on these innocent citizens.

UW Hospital’s Director Donna Katen, has washed her hands of Siebert and has ‘passed the buck’ to the UW in house lawyer Jim DeChene. Scams Inc’s investigator spoke to DeChene who became defensive and down right nasty. DeChene concocted a whitewash of UW Hospitals condoning the employ of sex-vulture Siebert——DeChene’s answer——‘Siebert has not been convicted criminally so we find that he is ok’——–a pathetic reply to a Dr. Siebert who has been fired and evicted out of NYC.—

Surely all Hospitals and fired Doctors insist on ‘gag-agreements’ and Siebert and his lawyer Joseph M Burke are masters at cover-ups——

UW Hospital, you are a disgrace and a scam——NYU, Lenox Hill, MEET Hospitals all fired Siebert for cause and terminated his Faculty Roll. UW Hospital desperate for Butcher-surgeons in the plastic surgery field and revenues there-from has tanked innocent victim patients who Siebert will lure into his sex and narcotics lair just as he did with Diane Kleiman and Muriel Karass——–

UW Hospital is seemingly only interested in lying and covering-up Dr John Siebert’s sex molestings and butchering of innocent unsuspecting victim patients–stay tuned

DR JOHN SIEBERT, OUR INFORMANTS REPORT IS ON THIN ICE AT UW HOSPITAL IN WISCONSON

Dr John Siebert was canned and kicked out of virtually every New York Hospital that Siebert was affiliated. Siebert was found to be a sex pervert by NYU/Langone Hospital after extensive hearings where Joseph M. Burke/Russo & Burke represented Siebert the ‘proved sex vulture’. Then Siebert was fired from Lenox Hill Hospital and then from Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital all for sexual perversions, and narcotics abuses.

Then Siebert was evicted from 4 or 5 medical offices where Siebert occupied space. The charges ranged from sex abuse, narcotics abuse, molesting patients and co-workers to illegal occupancy at 875 Park Avenue, frauds and delinquency in paying rents.

Siebert was essentially evicted out of New York, and was found to have perjured himself and engaged in collusion and Courthouse corruption.

Siebert has stolen a fortune in moneys he unconditionally agreed to pay—-and as a documented thief found his way to UW Hospital in Madison Wiss.

UW Hospital were lied to as to Siebert’s disgusting trail of thefts, molestings and being fired from other Hospitals in NYC. Now UW Hospital is on to Siebert and we are told that his days at UW Hospital are numbered.

Siebert is such a sociopath and thief that he has defrauded many with false and fake internet adds concocting phony positions in a scheme to lure innocent patient-victims. Siebert’s adds were stopped by informants.——-Stay tuned for more on Siebert and his sociopathic crusade and sex perversions, perjury, thefts and corruption.

MEDICAL SCAMS – AN IN HOME NURSE HORROR STORY

Don’t be too quick to trust the stranger in your home, even if they come with legitimate credentials. Last week we explored some of the scams being utilized to take advantage of the aging, whether through bogus long-term care insurance or shady old folks’ homes. It’s time to turn our attention a little closer to home with the story of an in home nurse who turned out to be a criminal.

For the older or infirm patient longing to spend some time free from the confines of the hospital, the comforts and safety of home are often only a possibility with regularly scheduled visits from an in home nurse. The patient’s ability to complete certain chores or manage areas of their own healthcare is sometimes compromised by their condition and the daily or weekly visits from a visiting RN are a necessity.

While most in home nurses deserve our sincere thanks and praise for the fantastic work they accomplish, there are still the rare horror stories of those who did not live up to their oaths as caregivers. These instances might be uncommon, but if it happens to you the effects can be devastating.

This is the story of a severely ill New York City woman who found herself a victim of the most callous class of scammer, someone who had sworn to care for and protect her. It’s anecdotal to be sure, but the pain and suffering it caused on top of the victim’s illness needs to be examined, if only to remind us who aren’t yet in her position that its never a good idea to blindly trust someone seems too good to be true. The names have been changed at the victim’s request, but the details are, sadly, true.

The phone call came as Deena Vale was recovering from a surgery to remove several cancerous tumors lodged between her vertebrae. Deena began to sob. The cancer was back, but that wasn’t what had finally broken her spirit. The news her daughter offered from the other end of the phone was responsible for the meltdown. Deena was in shock. “She stole from me!” She cried, “She stole from me.”

Deena is a sixty year old woman who has been fighting serious illness for over ten years. A near-death pancreatic failure, breast cancer resulting in two mastectomies, and a torn rotator cuff weakened her body immensely. Several years ago, she fell in the subway and broke her hip. Upon further examination, doctors discovered the breast cancer had metastasized into her hip, shoulder and back. After having the joint replaced, she began both radiological treatment and chemotherapy. She improved. She battled back. Deena kept her day job and continued to fight.

Last summer, Deena’s new hip began to be the source of great pain. She missed work and had trouble getting around at all. The doctor’s said the artificial hip had come lose from the bone. It took two surgeries and over four months in the hospital for Deena to find her way home. But after the prolonged trauma to her leg, she still wasn’t exactly mobile.

Thankfully, the insurance company allowed Deena to hire an in home nurse for a limited amount of time. They would pay for five daily visits, providing Deena enough time to get settled back into home while recovering her ability to get around the house.

She procured assistance through the company Americare, Inc. They sent a nurse to Deena’s home. Her name was Hayden Rivera, she had recently trained to be a registered nurse and had performed well enough to meet Americare’s standards.

In home nurses are often responsible for a lot more than just nursing. Many act almost as personal assistants, helping with chores around the house and taking care of the daily business at home that many of us probably take for granted. Hayden was no different and she was more than eager to lend Deena a helping hand.

Deena didn’t require much in the way of nursing. Some help getting into and out of the bath and maybe having help clipping the toenails she couldn’t reach, but mostly she was looking to have a companion for those first few days home. Hayden filled this need well.

They spent long hours at home together. Hayden helped Deena take walks both around her apartment and out into the world. They sat and laughed while watching bad daytime television. Hayden would run out and grab frozen yogurt for them both, refusing to let Deena pay for the treats. After five days Deena began to think of her caregiver as a friend.

Hayden showed great sympathy for Deena and her plight. She was interested in hearing about the woman’s children and looked forward to meeting them some day. Hayden was a bit cagier about her own past. It was troubled. She was currently living in a shelter, but had passed her course in nursing and was happy to finally be turning her life around. Deena felt like it they were both facing new beginnings together.

At the end of five days, Deena refused to give Hayden up. She asked the nurse, her friend, to come back the next week. Even though she was barely getting by on disability, Deena felt it was important to have Hayden back, for both their sakes. The following week they spent a day out shopping for clothes and food, and scheduled another day together for the week following.

A few nights later, the mild back pain Deena had been experiencing suddenly blossomed into a full blown crisis. She couldn’t get up from the chair she had sat down in earlier, the pain was too severe. Late at night and unable to get anyone on the phone, including Hayden, Deena called 911.

At the hospital, the ER staff quickly gave the bad news. There were new tumors wedged between the vertebrae of her lower spine. She went into surgery the next day. The first friendly face she saw in recovery was Hayden. She had told the staff she was Deena’s caregiver and they granted her access into the recovery room. Deena was happy to see her, but they were never left alone as the hospital’s nurses were a constant presence. Hayden said she would come back the next day.
Deena doesn’t remember that next visit so well. She was heavily drugged and in and out of consciousness. She knows Hayden was there, but doesn’t remember for how long. Deena does remember asking Hayden to hand her the purse from her bedside table. She wanted to give her former in home nurse a few dollars to take a cab back home.

A week later Deena was in rehab. She had left a message for Hayden earlier in the day, asking if she would be willing to drop by Deena’s apartment and bring some fresh clothes. Then she got the phone call from her daughter.

Tasked with paying her mother’s bills, Deena’s daughter had gone online to pay the rent and electricity only to find the bank account empty. Eight checks had been written and cashed over the course of two days. The checks had Deena Vale’s name in the signature line, but it wasn’t her signature. They were also written the day after Deena’s surgery, when she was heavily drugged and in out of consciousness.

Seven checks of the checks were made out to Hayden Rivera, one was made out to Hayden’s boyfriend. In all, over $3,500 was taken from Deena Vale’s account. All the money she had in the world. This happened two weeks before Christmas.

“She stole from me!” Deena cried, “She stole from me. Everything I have. Why? Why would she do that to me? She knows how hard my life has been, she understood. Why would she do this to me? I would have given her everything I could if she just asked.”

The bank agreed. The signatures did not belong to Deena Vale. Thankfully, a few weeks later they returned the stolen funds into her account. The police came to the hospital and took a statement. They issued a warrant for Hayden Rivera, but a detective told Deena that unless she was picked up for some other offense there wasn’t much hope of them ever finding the con artist. Americare, Inc. claims they had fired Hayden shortly after her first five days of service with Deena and before the theft occurred. They have not had contact with her since the dismissal.

Deena is home now. This time she isn’t just recovering from her latest stint in the hospital, she’s also dealing with the supreme betrayal of someone she came to trust and love. Let this story serve as warning. Always keep one eye open on the stranger in the house, even those that come highly recommended. True, this is just one woman’s story. But it happened, and it deserves to be heard.

TEXT MESSAGE AND PHONE SCAMS: IN THE NEWS

Recently, a new scam involving text messages has begun to surface, and many people have reported being victims or at least intended victims. There is a text message going around that seems to come from a trusted source – Sears. The message reads: “customer issue. sears card frozen. please call at 786-206-5901”. When the number is called, the customer is asked to enter his or her Sears card number. Sears has addressed the issue saying that it is indeed a scam – a fake text from an illegitimate source, and that customers should never give out their card information.

This text message has alarmed many people. For those who do not have a Sears card there was concern of identity theft – someone else perhaps opening a card in their name. For Sears card holders, given that this is the busiest shopping season of the year, it can easily be mistaken as a legitimate message. Many people do their holiday shopping at Sears, and if you’d just charged a considerable amount to your card, this text would likely send you into a frenzy, which is exactly what the scammers want – people who will act before they think.

The Federal Trade Commission has now disconnected the phone number, so anyone else who calls will hear the message: “This is a message from the FTC. The telephone number you just called has been disconnected because it may be involved in a scam. You might have gotten this phone number from e-mail, text or voice mail message, but no matter how real it seems, that message was a trick.”

There are also several reports of a similar text message that claims to be from a bank, which could be even more damaging if anyone were to give out their bank account information. Authorities urge anyone receiving such a text message to call the customer service number on the back of their bank card to report and inquire.

Another very harmful phone scam currently in operation uses scare tactics to trick unsuspecting people into giving out their personal information. A scammer will call and inform their victim that they failed to report to jury duty, and therefore a warrant for their arrest has been issued. The caller will then claim that in order to clear the matter up, one must provide their social security number, date of birth, and even a credit card number in some cases.

The bottom line here is to NEVER give out your personal information to a stranger. If anyone calls or texts you asking for anything like this, do not respond. Instead, go directly to the source for answers – do not trust these texts and calls that could be coming from anyone.

DR JOHN SIEBERT–WHAT EXTORTION HOLD DOES HE HAVE OVER UW HOSPITAL WISCONSIN?

Dr. John Siebert has been proved to be a sex pervert and a molester of patients. Siebert has been fired from NYU/Langone Hospital in NYC after extensive Hearings and findings that Siebert is a sex vulture, a manipulator of patients, a narcotics abuser and a doctor who plays upon the weaknesses of vulnerable ill persons. Siebert has been accused and found to be a sociopath and a pervert. Likewise Siebert has been fired from Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan Eye and Ear also in NYC. Siebert has been evicted from 5 medical offices in NYC, including 875 Park Ave. NYC as a ‘squatter’ and as a undesirable tenant. He we kicked out as a subtenant of Dr Dan Baker, Dr Sheril Aston, Dr. Jenifer Walden and Dr. Michel Hogan. Siebert and Burke have been proved to be perjurers, a thief, and a fraud. Schemer Dr. John Siebert and his corrupt lawyer Joseph M Burke have tampered with Judges, Referees and others in a rouse to rob Jim Couri, and other of Siebert’s victims out of millions of dollars.

All of this said, proved and undenied why is UW Hospital condoning the employment of Vulture Dr. John Siebert? Scamraiders has been recently been contacted by some of Siebert’s victims. They have reported that they have written to UW Hospital managment about Siebert’s molesting and harming of them and others, and advising that Siebert has been disgraced and evicted out of Hospitals and medical offices in NYC. yet UW Hospital continues to imperil victim patients allowing a proved sex pervert and accused pedophile to continue to interact with innocent citizens of Wisconsen.

Why does UW Hospital turn a ‘blind-eye’ to Siebert’s documented physical and mental abuses of patients?

We are continuing to investigate Siebert and his sex perversions both in the Hospitals and in his home. Siebert has interfered into the lives of many whose families and homes and kids have been fractured by his documented demented and sociopathic activities.—Stay tuned for much more on Siebert and his corruption, frauds, thefts and perverted sex abuses of the innocent.

GWEN BALL AND HUSBAND DAVID SHROUD AND ENABLE DRUG ABUSE ENGAGED IN BY HER DAUGHTERS AND FRIENDS

Gwen Ball is a supposed Mississippi social butterfly, but it is all a front for a sick disjointed family.

Mrs Ball has shrouded her husbands drug addictions for years. David Ball is now ‘retired’ but a review of his prescription book reveals a very different story. David is issuing ‘prescriptions to persons in California and elsewhere without even seeing the individual. OK with Gwen who covers up these illegal acts with cash and social ‘BS’.

Now Gwen has 3 children now adult. Her son is and has been in ‘rehab’ often as a drug abuser. Her daughter Sarah, a supposed photographer is a chronic drug-abuser, and a sex pervert who has contaminated many. Gwen’s other daughter Rachel is a drunk and a drug abuser who has been arrested for drunk driving in Los Angeles.

Gwen’s response is to attack the parents of her adult drug induced kids as a smpkescreen cover-up of her childrens drug and other crimes in California and beyond.

Sarah Ball’s drug abuses became public when the elite girls school Miss Porters in Farmington Conn. found drugs in Sarah’s posession and caught Sarah inducing other ‘Porter-Girls using drugs at the School late PM in the back yards of the sports field.

Sarah was about to be kicked out but the parents of Sarahs victims intervined to avoid a scandall and Sarah was saved.

Now the Ball girls have induced and seduced others while Mrs. Gwen covers their transgressions as a drug enabler and by concocting the best defense as a offense.

Gwen Ball has been warned to cease her meddeling and covering her families drug abuses that have wrecked others lives. Gwen Ball is sadly a blind woman hiding her own misdeeds of mothering three drug abusing children. It is time that Gwen faces the real world.

What can parents do to aid a narcotics abusing addicted family member, a son, a daughter, a loved one?

One of the worst diseases to hit a family is substance abuse, as there is no cure—

Worse there are parasites that prey on addicts misusing these weak sick people robbing their money, emotions using them to commit crimes and other illicit acts including rob family members, forge and steal—-

The disease is progressive and kills about as many victims as cancer and heart disease every day———

Then there are the ‘enablers’ the pathetic family loved ones who will not face the disease and stokes it with money so the addict can continue to fund their habits and disease until they end their lives or hit their bottom and get help—

And do not delude yourself the disease of substance abuses is hereditary—–

And this disease ruins homes lives and puts people in prison every day—–

Families, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives are helpless as the only cure is the addict themselves——and they can be very cunning as to the addictions when it relates to the medley of mood altering prescription drugs and cocaine ——-so what can families do that are mutilated by the reckless acts of the addict.

These addicts will lie, steal, rob, sell their bodies and worse for a fix—

We have been contacted by many families who are desperate for guidance as these addicts are targets for scams, swindles, thefts and interaction with the corrupt and swindlers —the addict is preyed upon by these criminals as they are easy prey—–

The result is the fracturing of a home and emotional and financial loss and suffering——-

We have seen the dastardly acts of corrupt lawyers, promoters and swindlers who have raped the addicts supplied drugs and manipulated and plundered the addict and the addict’s family——

Scams Inc has asked its reporters to interview Hazelton Rehabilitation Center in Oregon and Betty Ford Clinic in California.

We have learned much about the disease and the liars and thieves who prey on the addicted for unjust financial gain and we have learned about the many who blind themselves as to their family members addictions and stupidly finance the disease out of weakness and stupidity.

Scams Inc has assembled a number of case histories that we will be reporting on in the hopes that the addicts will seek professional help and guidance at Hazelton or Betty Ford.

We hope that the expose of the despicable who have preyed on these addicts will be exposed as the thieves that they are——

Finally there are the desperate and despicable supposed mental doctors who also prey on the addict and who prescribe mood altering drugs that fuel the disease—including prescription marijuana.

Scams Inc, in this expose, on drug addiction will name all names we have verified including the culprits who have robbed, plundered and stoked the addict’s disease to further the crooks’ self-indulgences whether sex, money, power or worse.

We have assembled and will be exposing many names. We have confirmed the corrupt actions of these parasites and how these sociopaths ruin lives and fracture families. All of this and more we will be laying out in detail and which we will also be submitting to Hazelton for their publications———stay tuned.

Beware the Free Lunch

In the current economic atmosphere, people across the United States are seeking education and advice on how to invest their money. This is a perfectly reasonable response to a tough economic time.

Unfortunately, however, tough economic times often bring con artists out of the woodwork, people eager to take advantage of consumers when they are at their most vulnerable. This has never been more apparent than with the crop of investment seminar scams flourishing around the country.

Recently, the Better Business Bureau has reported fraudulent investment seminars across the United States. For example, these investment seminars seem to be quite prevalent in New Jersey (http://www.vindy.com/news/2010/apr/27/bbb-warns-of-job-seminar-scam/) and Arizona (http://wisconsin.bbb.org/article/company-claims-to-offer-assistance…).

A common formula for the investment seminar scam is directed at senior citizens and is often designed around the concept of the “free lunch.” Seemingly benignly labeled “Free Lunch Seminars,” these seminars started popping up a few years ago, offering to provide free investment advice to seniors over a free lunch. Seniors would often be coerced into signing up for investments they did no understand and which were inappropriate for their needs. For a helpful article on this matter, see this article from The Pickens Sentinel: http://www.pickenssentinel.com/view/full_story/7771414/article–Fre…).

The Securities and Exchange Commission did issue a report on these seminars in 2007; you can view this report here: http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/seniors/freelunchreport.pdf. Some of the SEC’s findings include the fact that “Half of the examinations found that firms used advertising and sales materials that may have been misleading or exaggerated or included seemingly unwarranted claims.” The report also mentions that “although individuals aged 60 or older make up 15% of the U.S. population, they account for 30% of fraud victims” (http://www.nasaa.org/NASAA_Newsroom/Current_NASAA_Headlines/4998.cfm).

The potential for financial loss resulting from these free lunch seminars is devastating.

The AARP, along with the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), has started a “Free Lunch Monitor” campaign, urging seniors to monitor and report on these seminars. The AARP Reports that “a year long examination by regulatory agencies found that nearly one out of four advisers holding the seminars recommended investments that did not appear to be suitable for the client” (http://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/info-11-2009/_no_free_lunch.html).

While there may be some legitimate investment seminars out there, many are merely schemes attempting to swindle you out of money. Here are a few tips when analyzing the legitimacy of an investment related workshop:

1) Research the company providing the seminar. Check out the Better Business Bureau (http://www.bbb.org/) or the Federal Trade Commission (http://www.ftc.gov/). If it is an individual providing the seminar, research his or her credentials. If the person claims to be a Harvard Economics professor, but you can find no record of him on the Harvard website, think again.

2) Look at the message you are being sold. Does it sound sensible and realistic? Or pie-in-the-sky and over-the-top? Very few people get rich while doing no work.

3) Beware of pressuring tactics. If you feel pressured at all, especially if the information provided seems vague or confusing, walk away.

4) Stay away from guarantees. I’ll say it again: Stay away from guarantees. Nothing is sure in this world, least of all investments or the financial environment.

Check out the Federal Trade Commission’s publication The Seminar Pitch: A Real Curve Ball at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/invest/inv10.pdf for more tips and information on how seminar scams operate.
