Yesterday, I wondered in a comment what a certain scam publisher would be up to that she feels the need to misdirect our attention by winding Little Nikita up on the end of a string and setting him off to spin. And I have a few thoughts about that.
First and foremost, I have to think that she’s up to something regarding PF. She’s been stuck with that albatross hung around her neck for the longest. The average shelf life for a publishing company with her is two years. It’s been longer than that since she changed the accounts over from Mystic Press to Phoenix Fire. I don’t say “since she closed Mystic Press” because she didn’t. She, herself, has admitted that all she did was change the name on the accounts. Illegal much?
She’s TRIED a couple of times to change it again, but we’ve caught her and she had to back off. First, it was some “investor” that was arranging to buy the company and keep her on “as the face of the company.” Remember that? We nailed her to the wall with the details, and she was forced to back off that ruse.
Then she tried to switch over to Silver Fang, but we tripped her up on that, too. And Jacqueline was smart enough to get away from her, so she lost that stool pigeon, too. She didn’t have a partner to blame for the company’s demise any more. What’s a scam artist to do?
Enter two new people.
First, there was little Nicky. The two of them were all set to team up on some shady project. But that fell through. They couldn’t settle on the details. Translate that to mean that he wanted to do things legally and she is simply unable. Even his psychotic ass can see through her illegal bullshit.
Then, most recently, comes her first ex husband. I can only imagine how that came about. Never mind that he’s got a wife and kids. Here comes his ex, dressing modestly for the first time in, like, ever, playing the little woman and mother of the year. Being the slutty whore in the bedroom and pretending to be the perfect little woman out of it. Whispering sweet nothings into his brain and promising him the moon. He leaves his wife and kids, moves in with Tab and settles down with his new happy little family.
I speculated that the objective was to get a house out of him, then stick him for the tab by painting him as the abuser all over again. Then she gets to keep the house and make him pay for it. Not a bad scheme, if she can pull it off.
But consider who we’re talking about, here. It’s entirely possible that her scheme is broader than that. What if she got him to sign on as her new partner? THEN she can paint him as the abuser again. What a perfect scenario for her! She can not only blame the demise of her company on him, but she gets to be the ultimate victim, too. “I trusted him with my heart and my business, and he shattered both!” Just imagine the flood of sympathy she’d get! She could ride that wave of sympathy and support through the next two years of whatever she calls the next company, plucking the heart strings of her victims with her sob story.
I can see it, already. And the sad thing is, it’ll probably work. Most of her victims are good people who want to believe the best in people. The good-hearted kind of people that would go to the wire supporting a friend. The kind that believes their boss lady who “busts her ass” to “make their dreams come true.” And how dare all these former victims of hers attack her with their “hate” and “lies”? Don’t they know what she’s been through? What a brave survivor she is, standing tall and reaching for her dreams.
Hang on a sec. I’ve got to go take a Dramamine.
Even if the new/ex gets wise and dumps her flabby ass to the curb, she’s still got Nikita she can try to sucker into being her patsy. Hell, she might even try to “sell” her company to him and blame HIM for it when it folds. Wouldn’t be the first time she tried to pass the company off in some bogus sale, would it?
She says that Phoenix is doing just fine, thanks. But we all know better, don’t we? She’s not only looking for ways to ditch it, she’s DESPERATE to. With a new company, she can sucker more people. With the current one, all people need to do is Google her and find out what she’s up to. At least with a new company, under a new name (Zoey? Emerald?), she can scam people, at least for a little while before she switches it up again.
She’s got something going on. No doubt about it. If she’s got to resort to setting Niky off like a whirling dervish for the misdirection, I guarantee you, she’s poised to pull something.
Get your popcorn ready, boys and girls. I have a feeling something’s about to hit the fan.
