After an all-too-brief hiatus, long-time grifter Wesley Hall has returned to Facebook with a vengeance. Readers may recall his most recent performance piece: having fled to Spain following his arrest and questioning last May, he reappeared in September with a bizarre story about somebody making death threats toward his daughter.
At the time we were able to debunk the story quite thoroughly.
It turned out that Wesley had used emotional blackmail in the form of suicide threats to extort money from a woman who had befriended him, convincing her first that he was being pursued by a Satanic paedophile ring which was trying to murder him, and then that he needed to get out of the country in order to be safe.
When his victim realised she’d been had and turned off the money tap, Wesley mounted a campaign of vicious harassment against the woman and her husband, as well as others he felt had wronged him.
Eventually he fell silent, to the disappointment of…well, no one, really.
However, all good things must come to an end. Wesley is back, and he’s picked up his harassment campaign where he left off; only now he’s added a new ingredient—he claims that he’s being followed and spied upon by a number of mysterious individuals. In a series of Facebook posts, he’s been trying to whip up support amongst his friends, and trying to get people to phone Amnesty International on his account.
He’s shifted his game slightly, from making suicide threats to claiming that he’s being gang-stalked by a series of mysterious people who threaten him by standing outside his room filming:
Strangely, not everyone seems to believe Wesley’s latest tale of woe:
Slight correction to that last bit: in fact we can think of several people in the UK who would very much like to see the return of Wesley Hall. Unfortunately for him, they wear uniforms and ask uncomfortable questions. On the plus side, though, we’ve never heard of anybody being gang-stalked whilst in prison.
