Things never stay the same for long in Hoaxtead Land: last evening we received word that Abraham Christie’s brand-spiffing-new Twitter page had been suspended, presumably because Abe just cannot help being Abe. He was attempting to suck up to Brian Harvey by denouncing Ian Puddick, which was entertaining to watch, but it’s even more enjoyable imagining him dancing about in impotent seething rage as he realises his Twitter page has bitten the dust. Watch out for flying spoons, Ella!
Meanwhile, however, Wesley Hall, who seemed to have mysteriously disappeared over the weekend, has popped back up like the proverbial bad penny, and he’s still desperately trying to smear Paul and his wife:
However, over the past week we’ve been swamped with information from various quarters, offering convincing evidence that Wesley really is not the wounded party in this matter.
What sort of father does this?
Our first thought on seeing Wesley’s latest round of abuse was, “What kind of father makes use of his child like that?” It seems a very low trick to continually bring her up, like a trump card in some very ugly game he’s playing.
It’s even worse when one realises that the allegation of death threats isn’t true, but was invented as a way of weaselling out of a tight spot. If you’re just tuning in, you can read about Wesley’s death threat allegations here, and you can read about the extortion he was trying to cover up here.
We certainly hope that his daughter is not aware that he’s doing this; it’s bad enough to have him as a father, let alone to know that he continues to draw public attention to her as part of his latest attempted scam.
More evidence Wesley’s tale of woe wasn’t true
We’d like to thank the two alert readers who sent us this advert, published on 31 August on a Facebook page called “Barcelona Rent”. This was published about 10 days prior to Alex and her husband cutting off the money which Wesley had been extorting from Alex, via threats that if she didn’t pay up he would kill himself.
Hello, my name is Wesley, from Manchester in the UK and I feel like the beast himself has torn my arsehole out metaphorically whilst visiting Barcelona this summer, looking for accommodation… I’m a marketing professional here to setup a project and also work autonomo in the realms of infosec; social media marketing; web development and more…
You will more than likely see me at tech startup events; hackspaces and social clubs… Or on the beach…
I’m not sure I have any faith in me, if that’s even possible… But I’ll try this one last post… After trying since last Thursday, for around 8 hours a day, I’m drained and I’m hoping the universe is going to get some nice person to read this… I am looking for a room (preferably with just one other person), or a full apartment, I don’t want to live with several other people in a communal space, that’s just my preference…
I’m looking for a place in Barcelona. Ideally Barceloneta… But anywhere in the centre is cool. I’m ideally wanting long term, but would be willing to consider short term too… I can’t keep paying nightly fee’s… So here goes… First, I get ripped off 2000 euro’s; then end up in a house share with 4 people who hate tourists (The owner just disappeared) and next door to someone’s improvised dog sanctuary (I used to love dogs!) Jajajajajajajajaja…
From there I goto a place where the guy’s cool but only has a room for 6 days, for just 140, which is really cool, and understandable that he can only do a short let… Then arrive in a place where I pay 50 euro’s per night (Off airbnb)… And have to lie about being here, not open the door and feel like I have done something wrong… I have tried many agencies but apart from my DNA, they want what’s left of my arse, imaginary documents and enjoy mocking both the locals and tourists as they and the banks ruin the place for all… Charging unaffordable rents in an area I’m told the average wage is just 1200 per month, how is it even possible for a local to afford 800-1600 rents? Insane… I feel sorry for them and understand why they have to rent rooms out… And I’d rather pay someone direct and help them, rather than airbnb; an agency; a bank; a hotel; hostel etc… I’d rather help a local or someone living here being exploited, who needs the cash to survive…
Poverty is having an adverse effect on the city, as robbers and thieves prowl the night and target young girls travelling (Who DEFINITELY won’t ever return, telling all their friends too about their experiences)… And many are being persecuted for renting rooms, to meet the extortionate rent / mortgages of the agencies / banks, having their doors banged by the police, whilst all the REAL criminals are out of the streets having a ‘free for all’ – I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE BEING ROBBED – AND NO ONE DOES ANYTHING – A GIRL CAN SCREAM AS SOMEONE IS RUNNING AWAY WITH HER PHONE / BAG AND NO ONE DOES ANYTHING – THE POLICE ARE UNRESPONSIVE AND CONCENTRATE ON TARGETING TOURISTS HERE FOR MEDICINAL CANNABIS – TO HAND OUT REVENUE STREAM FINES (IN REALITY – TAX FREE CASH IN THEIR POCKET)… WHY AREN’T THE POLICE POLICING THE STREETS INSTEAD OF THE RENTALS????????????
Anyway, before I run off on more tangents… Despite all these experiences, there’s something drawing me to the place and I need a ‘base’ to work from with excellent WIFI… I love Barcelona / Catalonia and there’s many cool co-operatives and people here… So I’m praying (And I’m not even religious) that someone with a room or apartment see’s this and has a place available STRAIGHT AWAY PLEASE…
PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT UNDERNEATH MY POST WITH LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES, IF YOU DO SO, YOU WILL BE REPORTED TO ADMIN AS A SPAMMER/SCAMMER and I will personally trace your IP address and feed you to the nasty death unicorns…
I would only like PRIVATE MESSAGES from PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO ARRANGE VIEWINGS as soon as possible. NO LIES ABOUT YOU BEING IN ANOTHER COUNTRY AND POSTING THE KEYS. THAT SCAM IS ANCIENT. I WILL NOT FALL FOR IT! If you’re going to try and steal my money, please use some creativity at least… Anyway…
I’m looking for land to setup an ecological co-operative growing industrial hemp on farms / abandoned olive fields to employ young Catalans and offer a sustainable ecosystem of education; activism and non-profit organisations to empower and advocate the use of hemp worldwide. If anyone knows of any olive farms / fincas for sale, in Catalonia, please get in touch.
You have the perfect climate here and the demand is high – no pun intended.
If there’s anyone who’s willing to rent me a room / apartment – please get in touch. I can’t afford nightly lets. I need monthly. Willing to stay for as long or as little as you need.
Please help. Yours Sincerely.
Traveller with ecological project idea who needs an earth angel with a room. #OneLOVE
Where do we sign up? Doesn’t he just sound like the ideal roommate?
We were particularly interested in this bit: “I’m looking for land to setup an ecological co-operative growing industrial hemp on farms / abandoned olive fields to employ young Catalans and offer a sustainable ecosystem of education; activism and non-profit organisations to empower and advocate the use of hemp worldwide”.
Funnily enough, we see no mention of “making CBD oil” in here, let alone Wesley’s previous claim that he had been sent to Spain by Alex’s physician husband to source land for a “non-profit company that would offer CBD at a low cost to people so that it would be accessible to all…as well as a holistic retreat for patients who need access to cannabinoids”.
It is beginning to look more and more as though that particular pipe-dream was a latter-day invention, concocted after the money ran dry, to fit in with Wesley’s claim that he had been sent to Spain on a wild goose chase by a doctor and his wife, and then abandoned there, penniless and starving.
Implausible though that story was, at least it made Wesley out to be the victim, rather than a person who would extort money from an emotionally vulnerable person.
We’ll continue to follow this story, as more information becomes available.
