Financial Fraud

Hackers Impersonate Writer Sending Obscene Emails

On Friday, December 9th, my computer was hacked for the purpose of allowing thousands of emails to be sent out under my name and email address. When the email is opened, there is no message, only a link. When that link is opened, an obscene offer comes up while at the same time infecting the recipient’s computer to hijack the names of everyone on that contact list along with the victim’s password enabling the spammers to use that site and address for emailing their vulgarity.

Your email in-box will then be flooded with notices of addresses that are no longer in service. Within 10 minutes there were 438 emails in my spam folder plus hundreds of the emails sent directly to my in-box to overload and crash my computer. There have also been attempts to shut down my website.

Your name and email address can also be used for illegal financial gain. I received an email with the name, Bill Phillips as sender, with “Sad Situation” in the header. The email attributed to him, stated that he and his wife were in London for a vacation, were mugged, lost everything and needed immediate financial help to be able to come back home. There was a slight problem with that appeal. Bill Phillips is a friend of mine and I had seen his wife, Carla, at a church service two nights before the email came.

Pastor Jerry Hanoum Family Member Speaks Out

A family member of Pastor Jerry Hanoum who committed suicide on May 4th has contacted us to set the record straight about him and the accusations against him. Were they valid?  The answer is here. It is with permission that this email is published by me. Even though permssion was granted to use the name of that family member, we chose not to reveal it to prevent possible complications. The email sent is printed exactly as received, meaning no changes or edits. It is published in its entirety. This writer had also re-thought the newspaper’s role in his suicide which was published before this email was received. See story:  Rob Bell’s No Hell Doesn’t Jell.

Hello Reverend Miles,

Ive read with a heavy heart your postings about Pastor Jerry Hanoum…  I noticed that the most recent postings appear to point the finger at the newspapers…  That has prompted me to contact you as I understand all too well the hurt that you are feeling…  I believe that Jerry would have me contact you to tell you to stop…  No one but Jerry brought this on himself.

I was with Jerry in the beginning, in Vacaville from Oct 1984 thru the last days when he had to leave…  there were always rumors swirling around Jerry, from the first day I met him to the last…but I ALWAYS ignored them and chalked them up to “never receive an accusation against an elder”....
