Ward, 74, of Tacoma, WA was : levied last Wednesday, 10 May 1995 by a member of the criminal : cult of scientology. : A clean-cut average-looking man wearing slacks and a tie driving a : nondescript light color van knocked on my mother's door in Tacoma, : Washington, last Wednesday. My mother, 74, who is recovering from : her cataract surgery, initially welcomed the man who, he said, was a : high school chum wanting to renew an old friendship. : The man in his forties, no glasses or accent "looked and acted as if : he could have attended Stadium High School with you", my mom said, : "he said that you and he had sung together in the Madrigals and that : you went by the name of 'Bill' before college." : "He wanted to catch up on the last twenty years", she said, "he : wanted to know where you had worked, what schools you had gone to, : and details of your social life." : "I told them that you were good in math and science, had a : successful academic career at the Evergreen State College (Olympia, : WA), had been written up in the Wall Street Journal for founding a : society for people scoring high on aptitude tests, and had worked as : a member of the technical staff at Apple Computer (Cupertino, CA)" : "Because of his Apple Computer stock, Grady had spent a good deal of : time traveling in Europe and Africa", she added. : The man told me his name was "Jack Hoff" [I guess this is puerile : criminal cult humor-Grady] and that his address was "1234-40th : Place in Portland, OR." "He went on to say he "owned the Chi-Chi's : Restaurant on Broadway in Portland," and that "he would really : appreciate it if he could have a current picture to recall what I looked : like." : My mother gave them a photograph of me and my children. : He had to go, he said. One more thing he added as he went out the : door, "don't tell Grady that I came by -- I want my visit to be a : surprise." : My mother, a who still believes people are basically honest, felt this : struck a funny note. She sat down to write a letter to me about the : visit. : I found out about it when I called her for Mother's Day today. : Of course I never knew a "Jack Hoff". : After checking with directory assistance in Portland, all of "Jack's" : information was completely, totally, false. : The criminal cult lied to my widowed aging mother and they will lie : to you and about you. The criminal cult of scientology is composed of : thieves and liars. Stay away from them -- warn people about them, : tell your relatives with kids in the most vulnerable 18-25 year age : group about them and help stamp this criminal cult out. : If they think this is going to intimidate me or my family, : they are sadly mistaken. -- Grady Ward +1 707 826 7715 (voice / 24hr FAX) grady@netcom.com ---------- Newsgroups: comp.org.eff.talk,alt.religion.scientology,misc.legal,alt.2600,alt.censorship,alt.current-events.net-abuse From: grady@netcom.com (Grady Ward) Subject: Re: Cult spies and Grady's mother Message-ID: Organization: +1 707 826 7715 grady@netcom.com References: Date: Mon, 15 May 1995 14:07:02 GMT Several people have asked: "Why didn't I warn my mother?" I *did* warn my mother. I have phoned, faxed, and e-mailed information about the criminal cult of scientology to my family and friends and certain business associates. My mother is in her seventies and has the habit that I never hope she loses of believing people tell the truth.

A man came to her home claiming to be a person called "Jack Hoff" of "1234-40th Pl., Portland, OR" who claimed to be a friend of me in high school in Tacoma. He left with a photograph of me and my children. She and another adult have positively identified the intruder as Eugene Martin Ingram DOB 2/24/46. [Tampa, FL case # 94-12262, warrant # 94-051479] According the the Revised Code of Washington, available at ftp://leginfo.leg.wa.gov/pub/ my mother is reporting a "Class C" felony of theft "by color or aid of deception." The photograph that two witnesses saw Gene Ingram take is of course priceless, but reasonably could be recreated for several hundred dollars of expense: [Definition of "Theft"] RCW 9A.56.010 Definitions. The following definitions are applicable in this chapter unless the context otherwise requires: ... (2) "By color or aid of deception" means that the deception operated to bring about the obtaining of the property or services; it is not necessary that deception be the sole means of obtaining the property or services; RCW 9A.56.040 Theft in the second degree. (1) A person is guilty of theft in the second degree if he or she commits theft of: (a) Property or services which exceed(s) two hundred and fifty dollars in value, but does not exceed one thousand five hundred dollars in value; or ... (2) Theft in the second degree is a class C felony. [1994 1st sp.s. c 7 ' 433; 1987 c 140 ' 2; 1982 1st ex.s. c 47 ' 15; 1975 1st ex.s. c 260 ' 9A.56.040.] My mother will, of course, urge that this felony be referred to the District Attorney for formal charging before a Judge. I will post the case and warrant numbers when or if issued. Maybe Gene can collect felony warrants in all fifty states!

After my posting to the net the possibility of his being charged under Washington State law with the Class C felony of obtaining property by or under color of deception, an envelope arrived at my mother's today (25 May 1995) in Tacoma, WA containing the photographs fraudulently taken by Eugene Martin Ingram. Returning the property does not mitigate the distinct crime of criminal impersonation, however: RCW 9A.60.040 Criminal impersonation. (1) A person is guilty of criminal impersonation in the first degree if the person: (a) Assumes a false identity and does an act in his or her assumed character with intent to defraud another or for any other unlawful purpose; or (b) Pretends to be a representative of some person or organization or a public servant and does an act in his or her pretended capacity with intent to defraud another or for any other unlawful purpose. (2) Criminal impersonation in the first degree is a gross misdemeanor. (3) A person is guilty of criminal impersonation in the second degree if the person: (a) Claims to be a law enforcement officer or creates an impression that he or she is a law enforcement officer; and (b) Under circumstances not amounting to criminal impersonation in the first degree, does an act with intent to convey the impression that he or she is acting in an official capacity and a reasonable person would believe the person is a law enforcement officer. (4) Criminal impersonation in the second degree is a misdemeanor. [1993 c 457 ' 1; 1975 1st ex.s. c 260 ' 9A.60.040.] Since the postmark of the envelope (no return address) contains a postmark from *Portland, OR* (last three digits 721), the fraud becomes the *federal* crime of interstate transportation of stolen property, a base offense crime of 4 with a lot of possible sentencing "enhancements" depending upon value and other coeval acts. My mother noted that the address was addressed to 'Ruby K. Ward' while Eugene Martin Ingram made a point of spelling it correctly as 'Rubye' on 10 May. It sure looks like a conspiracy is involved here, which essentially doubles the base value of the underlying offense. Also federal racketeering or continuing criminal enterprise statutes may begin to come into play.
