    It's now a true ghost site. I guess that's paranormal, sort of.

    I don't want to dox Scheme Gene, but will say I got curious after his last email and did some searching and saw what might be a new address for him. I'm curious if it is, but will not share it here. It could be an old address but if not he certainly landed on his feet.

    That's very kind of you. Gene the Scamburglar has no such issues and has a history of doxing people to get back at them for perceived slights (disagreeing with him or pointing out his scams). Indeed he has even doxed himself (although that is more because he is a moron whose technical knowledge is equivalent to to an ox from the 19th century even he is not crazy enough to get back at himself).

    He's a very experienced grifter. I would not be a bit surprised if he's wormed himself into some more fancy digs. Whoever owns it is in for a bad time from the asshole though.

    What's the connection between Steinberg and Davis?

    Scheme Gene: The Musical! is an account belonging to one of the regulars at the SchemeGeneRC clubhouse over at Twitter. I'm guessing that since we don't hear much from SchemeGene himself these days, SG:TM! has begun posting about other schemers and parasites.

    Like the rest of us, I wonder what caused Schnorrberg to stop with the spam. I suspect some good leverage from someone, like maybe a family member, or possibly a court order. Maybe he started coming to his senses all on his own.














    Nah. Definitely a big stick and maybe a carrot too.

    Yep, seems likely to me. And he has begged at least once since apparently stopping. This makes me think he'll be back at it again at some point.

    So nothing much has changed on paracast, still crickets and GS uses his weekly blog letter this week to try to convince people to buy his plus package...So with no begging emails going out, where's he get his money from now or (as I suspect) it was all a scam to begin with, he never really needed the money he got from the begging...Perhaps he's simply living within his means now, which isn't a bad thing...

    with the begging stopped indeed he must live within his means. but this does not discount the fact Gene never paid a penny in rent to the LUXURY desert mirage apartments. so what did Gene do with the money for his rent?
    What changed?

    I can't help but think if Gene is better off there is at least one person somewhere out there who is the worse off for it.

    I was wrong in thinking he'd resume begging at the rate of a couple times a month, at least, so far as I have seen.

    I can't believe that he is actually living within his means. I offer another possibility.

    What if he put his long standing begging email list on the shelf and started a new one consisting only of new subscribers to his forum or paracast plus. It would be small at first but would grow over and time and solve the problem of the various people and websites dissecting and commenting on every new email. We would be unaware unless and until some new person found there way here or one of the other places that monitor his activity.

    This must be the reason. Old habits hard to break!

    This thread is still on the first page of Google search results, both this thread and the UFO trail blog comments threads are dropping down the listings though, likely due to inactivity...

    Does anyone remember when the begging began? It must have been in the last 1 to 1.5 years. I don't remember it happening years ago.

    So, did he intensify it in the past year? For some reason, I don't remember it going on for so long.
