Pedophile Tracking Asheville, NC Man Gets 16 Years

A 26-year-old Asheville man will spend at least 12 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Monday to one count of first-degree sexual offense with a child.

Jose Obidio Aguilar Gonzalez pleaded guilty in Buncombe County Superior Court, according to a press release from Assistant District Attorney Rachael Groffsky.

Superior Court Judge Gregory Horne sentenced Gonzalez to a minimum of 144 months and a maximum of 233 months in state prison.

Gonzalez also must maintain his registration as a sex offender for 30 years and comply with satellite-based sex offender monitoring when he’s released.

The Asheville Police Department investigated the case after a complaint regarding the abuse of a child under the age of 10 was reported in July 2013, according to the release.

Private Detective: Lexington Police Investigating 3 Carjackings

Three carjackings over the weekend have Lexington Police looking for connections. Unfortunately they have only vague descriptions of the people who committed the crime.

Carjacking is not a crime that people often hear about in Lexington. So three carjackings within a few hours of each other have police trying to come up with some names.

“In situations like these, even the smallest piece of information can be helpful in us solving the case,” says Sherelle Roberts with Lexington Police

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

Two reports came from Coddell Drive and the other came from the intersection at Kennesaw and Armstrong Mill. The incidents started Saturday night and lasted until 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

Police say at the first incident a man was sitting in his 1998 red Honda Civic when three armed men opened his doors, pointed the guns at him and told him to get out of the car.

Police later recovered that car.

On the same street a few hours later, an armed suspect approached a car with two people inside and forced them out of the vehicle.

The third carjacking occurred when a victim here had just pulled up to a red light at Kennesaw and Armstrong Mill.

“They opened his car doors and removed both he and his dog from the car and then sped off,” says Sherelle Roberts.

With the last incident being in a different area, police aren’t sure if it’s connected. But all three, say police, should serve as a warning.

Police want to remind drivers to be extra careful and lock their doors.

Pedophile Tracking Man Charged With Child Porn Out on Bond

Robert Devin, 27, was booked in the Franklin County jail on possession and distribution of child porn.  With over two dozen charges, the family of a child that lived with Devin is riddled with questions. They are worried that the little girl may have been victimized, among other things.

The 6-year-old girl’s identity is being protected as is the relative that spoke with our reporter.

The relative is concerned about what happened to the child behind closed doors for the two years she lived with him and even more upset that Devin is already out of jail on a $2000 bond. A judge put him in an ankle monitor and he is to have “no access to anything with internet capabilities.”

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

The relative does not think that is fair.

“We are very angry because it’s sickening,” she said. “He should still be in jail.”

State police seized Devin’s computer and said that their investigation is on-going. They said they have not uncovered evidence showing that Devin “made” anything pornographic.

That offers little comfort to the angry relative who feels strongly about Devin whether he made the porn or watched it.

She thinks that he is “a predator.”

Another condition to Devin’s release is that he must live with his parents and have no visitors.  LEX 18 tried to reach Devin for comment without luck.

Fraud Investigation BBB Warns of Fake Debt Collection Scam

The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about a relentless scam involving fake debt collection calls.

Here’s how officials say the scam works: someone calls your phone, telling you that you owe money on a current or old debt that isn’t even yours. Consumers say the caller threatens to have you arrested unless you pay up, and can be aggressive, intimidating, and very convincing. If this happens to you, do not transfer any money.

http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

Officials with the BBB say this type of scam, called “phantom debt” is a significant problem. According to federal statistics from 2014, phony debt collection harassment ranked the second most complained-about problem reported by consumers, after identity theft. If you’re not careful, ID theft can be one of the consequences of interacting with a debt scammer.

Related Content:BBB warns of scam e-mails

The callers pose as legitimate debt collectors and may even have a few tidbits of personal information, such as the last four digits of your Social Security number.  That does not mean it is a legitimate call and the caller may ask for more personal or financial information as part of their collection process. Unfortunately, some victims will pay out of fear – even if they believe they paid the debt – just to stop the harassing calls. In some cases these payments can run into the hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Here’s what you should know about debt collection practices:

Under the ‘Fake Debt Collection Practices Act’:

  • Debt collectors may not call between 9pm and 8am, unless you give them permission
  • Debt collectors are also forbidden to make further contact once you send a formal letter telling them to stop

Here’s four tips from the BBB on how to tell if the debt collection call is legitimate:

  1. Take control – Ask for the caller’s name, company street address and telephone number, and say you have nothing else to discuss until you receive a Validation Notice which is proof of the debt and the name of the creditor and amount owed.
  2. Don’t confirm any information – The caller may ask you to verify the last four digits of your SSN or ask for banking, date of birth and other information. Don’t confirm or deny. Just put down the telephone.
  3. Call the creditor – The debt may be legitimate – but if you think the collector is rogue or a criminal let the company that you owe money to know about it.
  4. Report the call – Contact the Connecticut Department of Banking and the Federal Trade Commission. If it is an identifiable company – file a complaint with Better Business Bureau.
