Are threatening texts, spoof phone calls pretending to be me, and identity theft a coincidence or are they related to the Boyd v Mars Petcare lawsuit?
Late in 2012 or early in 2013 (can’t remember exactly) I began having conversations with employees of the Mars Petcare plant in Joplin, MO – the very same pet food plant that was accused of sickening it’s employees, the same very pet food plant a lawsuit was based on for sickening its employees, and the very same pet food plant that depositions of witnesses were just provided to TruthaboutPetFood.com. Over the course of the next year I learned bits and pieces of information of things that went on in that pet food plant (and others Mars pet food plants).
In August of 2013, I addressed the bits and pieces of information I had learned with the state regulatory body over this pet food facility – the Missouri Department of Agriculture. My concerns – the information I shared – was promptly dismissed. It was after this private discussion with MO Department of Agriculture that things started to get interesting…
In May of 2014, Mars Petcare Greenies refused to answer my (phone) questions stating “I see that you are Truth about Pet Food.” No name was asked – they were basing this – I assume – on caller ID, my phone number must have been flagged by Mars.
In April of 2015, one of the individuals that I’ve talked with from Mars Petcare sent me a concerning text…“Couldn’t hear you well, connection was bad, call me when you get home.” But I hadn’t called this person. A mystery me – someone pretending to be me, with my same southern accent – had a brief conversation with this Mars employee — they called from my phone number. As it turns out, the Mars employee had two conversations with the mystery me.
In December of 2015 during numerous calls to Mars employees – while we were speaking they received another call from me. When answered, no one ever was on the other call. But it remained suspicious.
In January of 2017 I learned that a Mars employee received a threatening phone call (a threat to family). The phone number that delivered the threat to them – sent me a text. It was computer generated – it was spyware. I immediately stopped using this ‘smart phone’ and moved to an old style flip phone that was not so accessible to spyware.
But that didn’t stop ‘them’. In mid-January of 2017 shortly after I arrived at AAFCO meetings I received the following texts from the same phone number that threatened a Mars employee and sent the spyware text to me weeks earlier…
‘They’ knew I was at AAFCO. Upon receipt of the above texts, I alerted authorities and hotel security. I received no other texts from this phone number.
Over this past weekend (Saturday May 13, 2017) I received the depositions from three witnesses in the Boyd v. Mars Petcare lawsuit. Before I could even get a post up about the damning information they contained, it seems someone knew I had them.
Before publishing the depositions, Monday May 15th I received a phone call from my Internet Service Provider, they were returning my call…they stated ‘we got disconnected’. I HAD NOT called them. They received a phone call from my phone number, the mystery me knew my date of birth and knew my full name (most people don’t). We put extra security on my account.
Monday May 15th evening – again, before I made the Boyd v. Mars Petcare depositions public, I received the following text. The name who sent the text has been redacted. The phone number was spoofed – the person did NOT send me the text. The name in the text has also been redacted to protect the individual.
One day after the depositions went public, my daughter’s Facebook page was hacked. And 2 days after I was alerted to an identity theft – someone had gotten a Mastercard in my name. Nothing was purchased – we stopped it before that happened. And multiple spoof phone calls (pretending to be from me) took place today going to multiple individuals I know from Mars Petcare.
There is more – a lot more. But I can only share with readers what has happened directly to me (and what happened to me is nothing compared to others). The best I can say is for the past 4+ years I and many others have been living in the middle of a mystery novel with all the threats and dangerous/suspicious activity you can imagine.
Could all of these things be related to Mars Petcare – or are all of these things just a coincidence? To be honest, I don’t know with certainty. I don’t know with certainty who these threatening texts are about or exactly what they are about. But I do have an opinion.
It is my opinion there must be many more secrets that someone/multiple parties doesn’t want us to learn of. It is my opinion someone/multiple parties are trying desperately to keep those secrets hidden from the public. It is my opinion a full investigation needs to take place – until that happens, many people are at risk including the whistleblowers that provided us their depositions.
I’m asking all pet food consumers for a favor. Call or email the Missouri Attorney General and ask for a full investigation.
Missouri Attorney General’s Office
As a concerned pet food consumer, I am asking your office to fully investigate Mars Petcare, Missouri Department of Agriculture, and Missouri OSHA in relation to depositions that have recently become public from the Boyd v Mars Petcare lawsuit. The depositions have been provided to the public (by the whistleblowers to TruthaboutPetFood.com – http://truthaboutpetfood.com/poisoned/) – the information provided in them is alarming and illegal. When these incidents occurred, all responsible parties (the companies involved and government agencies charged with protection of employees and the integrity of pet food) ignored the blatant disregard of law. Multiple parties have been threatened with harm related to these instances. Until a full investigation takes place, many more people could be at risk. Please take immediate action and investigate these depositions (found at http://truthaboutpetfood.com/poisoned/).
Thank you –
My thanks in advance to everyone who contacts Missouri Attorney General. Perhaps one day we’ll learn exactly who is responsible for the texts, the mystery me, and the identity theft. Also, perhaps one day we’ll learn what really happens behind closed doors of pet food manufacturing. We deserve to know.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
