Danya Feltzin Victim Of Identity Theft Used In Seattle Sting Operation

Danya Feltzin Victim Of Identity Theft Used In Seattle Sting Operation. Danya Feltzin has fought hard to regain his name

Published

on

A Salem, Oregon, woman went from best friend to frenemy after friends and family say she stole thousands of dollars from them.

Vicheka Ly, 24, is currently in custody at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, without bail. Ly, who calls herself Vee, is facing charges of theft, identity theft, and forgery and could be extradited back to Oregon to face the charges. She is accused of befriending people throughout Oregon and then stealing their cash , credit cards, and their trust.

One of Ly’s alleged victims is aspiring pastry chef Taylor Nunes, 22, who said she became friends with Ly after meeting her at a fundraiser event in Portland last spring.

“[She said], ‘Oh, your hair is so beautiful. Oh, I love your dress. Oh, your skin is so nice. Oh, you’re just so pretty. Oh, I just want to be just like you. You’re so sweet,’ and I was like, ‘Okay, that’s like a lot of compliments,’” Nunes told “20/20.”

Nunes said Ly had money to take her shopping and hinted she was close with famous people.

“[She said] she’s best friends with LeBron James and a bunch of different basketball players … movie stars,” Nunes said.

Nunes said Ly was constantly there for her, including when Nunes’ beloved dog died. “I thought I could trust her,” Nunes said.

Not long after they met, Nunes said Ly picked out an apartment for the two of them to share. But Nunes said Ly told her she didn’t “have rental history so her name couldn’t be on the lease.”

Soon after, Nunes said $400 of unfamiliar charges turned up on her credit card, and her expensive hair straightener went missing. Then, on a shopping run together, Nunes said Ly flashed a large amount of cash.

“She’s buying like $2,000 worth of bedroom and house stuff, like towels. We were at the cash register, and she was going through her wallet,” Nunes recalled. “And I just kind of looked over, and she opened it up. And there was just … so much money in there.”

Twenty-four hours later, Nunes said she checked the secret hiding place in her bedroom where she kept her cash and other personal documents and discovered many things had been stolen.

“She went through all my belongings when I wasn’t home and stole my Social Security card, debit cards, PIN numbers and stole $13,000 cash,” Nunes said. “It was how I was paying my rent. It was how I was paying my car insurance. It was how I was paying food, paying my heat. I knew that it was her who had to have taken it.”

Nunes said she confronted Ly about the stolen money and she denied taking it. A few days later, Nunes said Ly took off, telling her she was heading to Los Angeles.

Nunes went to the police, who checked a series of unsolved cases and found that it wasn’t the first time Ly had been accused of stealing from her friends.

Vicheka Ly Had another victim, 38 Year old Danya Peter Feltzin of Portland Oregon. A year ago Danya Feltzin had his wallet stolen from his vehicle parked at a local grocery store.

Within minutes of realizing he had left it on his seat, he returned only to find it missing. Fast forward one year, and now Danya’s name was being used in a sex sting operation out of seattle. Police were able to trace the stolen identity back to Ly, who sold Danya’s identity to a third party.

Now Danya Feltzin is left cleaning up the mess that has nearly wrecked his life

Leilani Gutierrez, 25, said she met Ly six years ago in Hillsboro, Oregon, when she was a frequent customer at the grocery store where Gutierrez worked. They became best friends and Ly attended her wedding, but this past May, Gutierrez said Ly took her passport and credit card and went on a 36-hour shopping spree.

“I checked my bank account online, and it was, ‘What are all these charges?’ American Eagle, H&M, Albertson’s, some clubs, cab rides. She tried to buy … 13 airline tickets. She tried to charge $8,000, and that was one day,” Gutierrez told “20/20.”

Gutierrez never saw Ly again. “She is always one step ahead,” Gutierrez said.

Sonja Cecil, 23, said she first met Ly at a Portland nightclub. Cecil said Ly claimed she had mega-rich parents and bought Cecil clothes and dinners.

Ly eventually talked her way into becoming Cecil’s roommate, but when Ly ditched their apartment months later, Cecil said Ly left a $3,600 rent bill behind.

“It was almost as if she sought out a certain type of person, became friends with that person, and then would victimize them a little bit before doing something to cause her to cut ties with that person and leave,” Det. Patrick Altiere, who spearheaded the growing look into Ly’s activities, told “20/20.”

Ly’s estranged sister, Marie Ly, believes her sister does this because she is simply lazy and doesn’t want to work.

“Maybe she [expects people to just] hand her stuff, because she was spoiled,” Marie Ly told “20/20.” “Maybe if I [did] something more, she wouldn’t turn out to be like that.”

Marie Ly said her sister never graduated high school. In 2008, Marie said her family kicked Vee Ly out of the house, and some money went missing. Last year, Marie Ly took her sister in and offered her room and board in exchange for some nanny work, but then she too became one of her alleged victims.

“One night my husband and I wanted to have a nice dinner, and we know that we have extra money. We open that safe box, and my husband [screamed] from upstairs like I never heard him scream like that in my life. He’s like, ‘Money’s gone,’” Marie Ly said.

Marie Ly said she confronted her sister about taking the almost $10,000 that was missing from their safe box. Vee Ly denied taking the money and never came back to the house.

“Being betrayed by someone you love, it’s like somebody [took] a knife and [stabbed] your heart. For a year I beat myself … ‘Why do I trust people?’” Marie Ly said.

Vee Ly was arrested on Nov. 12 by Los Angeles police thanks to a 911 call from her new friends, roommates Margeaux Vallee and Jamie Charoen. After two weeks of couch surfing at Charoen’s Studio City apartment, she and Vallee became suspicious of Ly’s far-fetched stories.

“She said she had houses in Pasadena. She had houses in Riverside. She said she had so much money, yet she doesn’t have a car. She doesn’t have any way of getting money. She would keep borrowing money from Jamie saying that she’ll pay her back,” Vallee told “20/20.”

Vallee and Charoen’s suspicions led them to do a Google search of Vee Ly’s full name, they were flabbergasted by the results.

“There’s Facebook pages that are dedicated to finding her, Twitter accounts, reposts that are just sharing all these things,” Vallee said. “I start tearing up and look at Jamie and say, ‘This girl is psycho.’” They called police.

Back in Oregon, Ly’s other alleged victims were ecstatic over the news of her arrest.

“She was doing the same exact thing, moved in with a girl, became [best friends] and was going to do the same thing,” Nunes said. “And I’m glad that she stood up to do the right thing.”

“She has to pay for what she did to me,” Marie Ly said. “There’s a lot of people [affected] by it. That’s their life savings… She needs help. She needs to admit it that ‘I need help.’ There’s no excuse.”

SHOCKING News From California… Major Company Makes Assassination Threat At Trump!!!

Published

on

Liberal companies have been mobilizing against Donald Trump almost immediately after he was inaugurated. After Trump issued his executive order banning travel from seven Muslim countries, those liberal companies really went into overdrive, publicly opposing both the order, and Trump himself. But this liberal CEO? He just took it way too far.

Most liberal CEOs keep to opposing Trump in the usual way. Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, announced that he would hire 10,000 refugees in response to Trump’s executive order. It’s irritating to many Americans, but it’s not criminal. What Ted Kornblum just did, though, is.

Kornblum is the CEO of Magnatone Guitars and Amplifiers. And apparently, he isn’t very bright. Like a typical liberal, he opposes Donald Trump. But most liberals are at least smart enough to know that posting assassination fantasies online isn’t the best idea; at the very least, it will get the attention of the Secret Service rather quickly.

Yet Kornblum still went ahead and posted an assassination threat, on both Facebook and Twitter. He evidently really, really wanted to make sure everyone knew about it.

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to start bringing the threats to the attention of the Secret Service, and to call out the media for ignoring it:

Can you imagine the reaction if the CEO of a right-wing company had said the same thing about Obama while he was in office? The media would have had a field day! But because it’s Trump, the media is silent.

Still, even without any media attention, Kornblum realized that he had stepped in it, big time, and put out an apology on Facebook:

magnatone
Still, the damage may have already been done. The Magnatone Facebook page appears to have been yanked. Nothing about the assassination threat, including the apology, appears on the Magnatone website. Kornblum appears to have gone underground, possibly in fear of being arrested by the Secret Service.

It’s one thing to peacefully protest — but liberals don’t seem to understand that when you start advocating for violence, or rioting, or physically attacking people, you can no longer call what you’re doing a “protest”. And it certainly can’t be called peaceful, either. Calling for the president to be assassinated isn’t just an invalid form of protesting, it’s illegal and stupid.

SHOCKING NEWS Out Of TEXAS – 60-70 Bodies Found Rotting In Field … This Is HORRIFIC!

Published

on

America’s criminal justice system is a finely tuned machine with one purpose; justice for all. While good old-fashioned detective work, canvassing, questioning and sometimes a gut instinct will never be replaced during investigations into criminal activity, the fastest evolving part of an investigation is the forensic science.

As citizens of this great nation, we are constantly in search of a way to make sure that no innocent person is punished and no guilty person gets off scot-free. However, the more sadistic and creative the criminals get, the more tedious and meticulous those who try to catch them might be. While this looks like a few trips to a computer on TV shows, the reality is that forensic science is a dirty business and one that most of us don’t completely understand.

In order to determine things like how long a person has been dead, scientists and investigators need to actually observe a body decompose in a controlled environment, and that’s just is happening at a body farm in Texas. Daily Mail reports that the bodies are exposed to the elements and covered with cages to keep scavengers off them, and while it’s for a good cause, it’s truly horrific to see:

“These gruesome images show the inside of a body farm – a graveyard where the dead are left to rot in open cages.

Rows upon row of dead bodies are lined up in the metal pens in the remote Texan field as part of scientific research into how corpses rot.

In fact, despite its grisly appearance, the so-called body farms actually help police solve crimes by helping to determine when victims were killed.”

Scientists at The Forensic Anthropology Centre at Texas State University are able to use the donated dead bodies and compare them to those killed in suspicious circumstances.

The information gathered here can be used in a court of law and researchers have been called to give evidence for the prosecution and defense. The bodies can also be used to help with facial reconstruction.

By using the skulls and images of those who volunteer for the open burial scientists can help police to reconstruct what an actual victim may have looked like.

They often have worked in law enforcement so know how useful the facilities are, decomposition expert Dr. Danny Wescott told CBS Austin.”

Just like a person can choose to be an organ donor, someone can also donate their body to science after they pass on. This is just one of the possibilities for what could be done with someone who makes that donation.  It’s far from a pleasant sight to see, however, the work is one of those unpleasant necessities to keep crime down.

Without endeavors like this one, the forensic departments would have no way of training their scientists to determine exact times of death, which markings on a body come from attacks and which come from scavengers, etc. That is important, not only in the sense that it helps bring justice for the families of those killed, but knowing that it’s getting increasingly more difficult to get away with a crime, keeps crime down. Behavior will always depend on its consequences, and without an effective way to punish attackers, more attacks would happen.

Dr. Danny Wescott has spent a number of years leading the research of skeletons at the US university.

He said: ‘It allows us to see how bodies decompose. We work with law enforcement officials and help with the training of local police cadets.

‘We get bodies given to us specifically to use. Living donors offer their bodies as donations. We also take next of kin donation.

‘We have two criteria for the bodies – they must be under 500 pounds when they die. And they must not have any active infectious diseases like hepatitis C. We also accept cremains.

‘It then gets assigned to a research project. The bodies can be left out in the field for six months to a couple of years.

‘The skeleton is then used for further research. In fact, most of the research is done on skeletons.’

To be a part of the body farm most people volunteer before their death – although some are donated by next of kin. Police then observe how different factors influence the way the bodies decompose.

‘Law enforcement provides different scenarios and we look at the effects of clothing and things like diabetes on the body,’ Dr. Wescott said.

‘It allows us to give estimations on death to the police. We can also help with facial reconstruction.

‘Because we know what the person looked like before they died we can compare this with what those who draw the facial reconstruction images have come up with.

‘We also look at the ecology side – and how it impacts specifically on insects. We have scientists here from the UK because there is a demand for it.’

The bodies have to be caged to protect them from vultures, which are rife in Texas.
‘At the moment we have between 65 and 70 bodies. There are more men than women but we also get some couples who donate their bodies,’ Dr.Wescott said.

This might not be the kind of place that you want to go on a family vacation, but it might just be what keeps the streets a little safer wherever you do take your vacation. Like many of the aspects of law enforcement, this isn’t a particularly pleasant task, but one that has to be done if we are going to try to keep our nation safe.

BREAKING NEWS! Trump HAULED Into FBI – THIS COULD GET UGLY!!!

Published

on

Law enforcement officers always have a tough job, especially those who have to answer to the political brass. Getting caught in the middle of a political scandal is as easy as getting takeout in Washington D.C. and being if that happens, being compromised isn’t far behind. Under the tutelage of Barrack Hussain Obama, this seems to be what has happened to the bulk of the higher-ups in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Their credibility came under fire in the wake of Hillary’s massive miscarriages of justice, and their names are far from being cleared. President Trump began to get an understanding of just how badly things were being run over at the FBI, even before he was in office, and now that his security clearance is significantly higher, his hints to the American people about the state of those who are supposed to be in charge of carrying out justice on our behalf.

Fox News reported that the President addressed just that issue when talking at a Quantico graduation of this year’s new crop of the FBI’s best and brightest. What might seem like a high steaks game of political chess is no laughing matter to the President, and he plans to clean up the FBI, no matter who he angers along the way:

“President Trump told a graduating class of law enforcement officers at the FBI Academy on Friday that he ‘has your back 100 percent’ and pledged his White House will always stand behind police.

‘The president of the United States has your back 100 percent,’ Trump said in a 17-minute speech to state and local law enforcement officers who completed [sic] a special training course at the bureau.

Trump’s support for law enforcement has been no secret, but the comments at the FBI Academy came as bad blood between the White House and bureau has reached an all-time high. Trump has blasted the bureau’s senior leadership and its reputation, calling it “in tatters” and “the worst in history.”

‘It’s a shame what’s happened with the FBI,’ Trump said Friday, moments before he left for Quantico. ‘But we’re going to rebuild the FBI. It’ll be bigger and better than ever.’

‘Everybody — the level of anger at what they’ve been witnessing with respect to the FBI is certainly very sad,’ he added.”

No one thinks that the boots on the ground, responding to crisis and investigating suspicious deaths are the heart of the problem at the FBI. This, like most of the problems in our country, is a politically motivated one. Palms are being greased and backs are being scratched in order for very wealthy and influential people, such as the Clintons, to get away with things that should be prosecutable offenses.

While some might consider President Trump’s comments at the commencement to be aggressive or offensive in some way, to those who truly want to serve their country and aid in the carriage of justice, his comments should have been very supportive and reassuring. He’s promising to give those same, honest law enforcement officers a leadership that they can be proud to serve under. He’s promising to fix what Obama broke and deliver the American people a justice department that is once again dedicated to justice.

“Newly released documents reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited in a way that watered down the agency’s findings. 

But during his speech, the president praised agents who keep the country safe and whom he does not blame for the investigations that have dogged his administration.

The White House said Friday newly revealed FBI records show there is an ‘extreme bias’ against Trump among senior leadership at the FBI.

About 200 leaders in law enforcement from around the country attended the weeks-long FBI National Academy program aimed at raising law enforcement standards and cooperation. Coursework included intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science..”

The promises that the President has made to fix the corruption in Washington and the FBI  have not made him popular with those who’ve been playing this political game for a long time. They’re very set in their ways, and no matter how hard they search, they can’t seem to find any way to keep president Trump in his lane with the promise of skeletons, the way Washington insiders are usually reigned in.

If we think of the FBI like a body and imagine that body having been fed a steady diet of mind-numbing drugs that keep it from performing its job the way it should, then we can see President Trump as the parent who’s about to check them into rehab. Drug addicts hate everyone while they’re detoxing, but they are free of the physical addiction when the nastiness is purged out. If they choose to go back to their old ways after they have been detoxed, that’s a different matter, but at least they have a chance. The same will be true for the FBI; if the American people let this investigative body go back to its toxic ways after President Trump has left office, that will be our own fault. His job is to fix everything he possibly can, and leave the FBI and the country better off than he found it.
