We did receive another letter about Campbell recently:
I am emailing about Mike Campbell. First of all I want to know why the story was removed. I understand that he went into a narcissistic rage after he was busted online and a number of people backed up the facts about him. I will say, that these women were in the right to come forward and try to get the word out. Not only were they right on in doing this, but some of them genuinely cared.
I recently talked with another friend who it so happened had been lied to by this same man in the past and contacted her. Eventually we were able to find out what actually has taken place in these last months.
Now I have been informed of the outcome and the extreme vindictive measures he has taken in order to hurt women he already victimized.
I just wanted to express my thanks to all his victims for coming forward. Keep your head up and know that there are people on your side. you're the real deal!
Thank you, anonymous, for this letter - we hope his victims see it.
All this for TELLING THE TRUTH! How MALICIOUS can Campbell be?
Mr. Campbell if you see this - get help - get long term counseling for your narcissism & sex-addiction. If you want, Sir, you can contact us yourself and we will try to find you a referral to a place near you for ongoing help.
Unfortunately, we can't control the internet and it appears that some of your other victims helped post their story on other sites.
How much should we all bet Campbell's already got a couple new victims on his string already? How many more people is he going to terrorize to protect himself?
If you have any further information regarding this matter, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Sana Klaric, 27, and husband Adnan, 32, from Zenica, poured out their hearts to each other over their marriage troubles, and both felt they had found their real soul mate.
The couple met on an online chat forum while he was at work and she in an internet cafe, and started chatting under the names Sweetie and Prince of Joy.
They eventually decided to meet up - but there was no happy ending when they realised what had happened.
Now they are both filing for divorce - with each accusing the other of being unfaithful.
Sana said: "I thought I had found the love of my life. The way this Prince of Joy spoke to me, the things he wrote, the tenderness in every expression was something I had never had in my marriage.
"It was amazing, we seemed to be stuck in the same kind of miserable marriages - and how right that turned out to be.Adnan said: "I was so happy to have found a woman who finally understood me. Then it turned out that I hadn't found anyone new at all.
"We arranged to meet outside a shop and both of us would be carrying a single rose so we would know the other.
"When I saw my husband there with the rose and it dawned on me what had happened I was shattered. I felt so betrayed. I was so angry."
"To be honest I still find it hard to believe that the person, Sweetie, who wrote such wonderful things to me on the internet, is actually the same woman I married and who has not said a nice word to me for years."

THE COMMERCIAL STAFF (from Pine Bluff, ARKANSAS)
MONTICELLO - A Georgia man, who apparently preyed on highly educated, financially self-sufficient, single women, was convicted Friday of scamming a Monticello woman he met on a Web site for singles.
During a trial before Circuit Judge Sam Pope, Christopher J. Powell was sentenced to eight years in prison for theft, six years for computer fraud and three years for failure to appear at his first trial in August. The three sentences will run concurrently. Pope also ordered Powell to pay the woman $15,000 restitution upon his release from prison.
Powell's victim, a university administrator, said the 48-year-old man romanced, deceived and proposed marriage to her to obtain money during their 6-month relationship.
She said Powell contacted her in March 2004 by e-mail through a Web site after seeing her profile online. He presented himself as an unmarried sergeant major in the U.S. Army but she would learn later, after he bilked her out of more than $15,000, he was actually a married, lay minister with a young child.
The woman testified that he once needed money because he had been ambushed in Iraq and needed to get to Germany. On another occasion, he said he needed money to save the family farm from the IRS.
Eventually, the woman became suspicious and contacted police.
After hearing the woman's story, Lt. John Dement, a criminal investigator with the Monticello Police Department, contacted Janet Wilson, an Alabama crime analyst, who located Powell within two hours.
He was arrested at his Lawrenceville, Ga., home on Oct. 9, 2004, his 47th birthday.
At trial, State Police Special Agent Scott Woodward read a transcript of his interview with Powell after his arrest. Powell admitted he was playing a role. He said he created a facade to impress the woman and to provide himself a "safeguard" because he was married.
He also admitted asking for and receiving money from her.
Though Powell told Woodward he'd never done anything like that before, police would soon learn otherwise.
A Texas woman testified that she married Powell in 2001, not knowing he was already married. When she discovered he was already married she had her marriage annulled. He was convicted of bigamy and she was awarded a civil judgment against him.
In his closing statement before sentencing, 10th Judicial District Chief Deputy Prosecutor David Cason told Pope that Powell is predatory.
Powell's defense attorney, Josh McHughes of Little Rock, said Powell did not initiate the relationship and the money was a loan. He said no crime was committed but if there was a theft, it occurred in Georgia, where he received the money, not Arkansas. (typical!! Wasn't me - it was HER!)
Powell apologized to the woman before sentencing saying, given the opportunity, he would make restitution.
(About that last sentence? Let's SEE if he REALLY makes restitution that or was, once again, just USING WORDS to try to gain his target's and the court's sympathy? - Fighter)

NEW YORK (AP) - To some, Richard Kudlik possessed the macho allure of a deputy U.S. marshal on a manhunt.
They say he had the badge, raid jacket, flashing lights on his Dodge pickup truck, even a gun. But the real U.S. marshals -- and a chorus of angry women -- say Kudlik was only acting.
Kudlik, 43, was arrested at his Port Jefferson, N.Y., home Wednesday after several ex-girlfriends outed him earlier this month on a Web site featuring a wanted poster. The site calls him a "lying, cheating U.S. Marshal impersonator" and reveals his true identity as a long-married maintenance man.
He pleaded not guilty to possessing a counterfeit U.S. Marshals Service badge and was released on $5,000 bail. His attorney did not return a phone call Wednesday.
Pamela Brown said she began dating Kudlik last year until she received an anonymous e-mail warning: "The man you‘re dating is not who he says he is."
She tracked down Kudlik‘s wife, who told her in a phone conversation they had been married 17 years.
Brown began networking online with other women who said they had been wronged by Kudlik, and on May 14 she launched the Web site http://www.off2hunt.com with photos of Kudlik. She estimates he used his phony persona to lure at least 10 other women into relationships in the past decade.
"I don‘t want another woman to go through what I went through," she said. "I hope this taught him a lesson and makes him get help. He‘s a sick person."(Right on Pam!!! Pam's site used our links section left and we applaud her for outing this cyberpath! Check out her site listed in the article above.
ALSO this sort of fraud could be avoided with a NATIONAL MARRIAGE DATABASE - There is NO central database for marriage licenses in the US!! Please sign the petition!

The Mattituck whistleblower who exposed a man accused of serenading and then breaking the hearts of women with a ruse that he was a U.S. marshal has a criminal history herself, records and law enforcement sources said.
Pamela Brown, 39, started a website to tell how she was conned by her experience with Rick Kudlik, arrested Tuesday by real U.S. marshals on charges of possessing counterfeit marshal gear. But she herself served 106 days in Nassau County jail in 2004 for a forgery conviction, a sentence violation and failure to pay, records show.
In late 2003, court documents show, she wrote bogus checks to herself totaling over $3,500 when she served as assistant controller for Legend Nissan in Syosset.
Two months after her April 30, 2004, release, she was re-arrested on a grand larceny charge., Information on the case outcome was not available yesterday.
That's not all.
Brown, who chided Kudlik for dishonesty, has used two aliases, jail officials said. She was convicted of forgery the first time in 1995 and received a one-year conditional discharge, and forgery and petty larceny in 1997 for writing $4,000 worth of checks to herself from her former employer, Zeppelin Electric of Holbrook. She later violated her three-year probation sentence, records show.
She also has civil court judgments against her, one stemming from an incident in which she refused to pay rent on a Selden apartment and another where she skipped medical payments to a Port Jefferson physician, records show.
But Brown‘s attorney said her past has nothing to do with her good deed: exposing an accused law enforcement impersonator.
"It seems like these people are trying to mix one thing with another and blame this woman for doing something admirable," said Michael Lamonsoff, of Manhattan. "The bigger issue is how this guy is able to walk around with fake badges for a federal agency... and all this paraphernalia in a post-9/11 world."
Lamonsoff said that Brown acknowledges her past misdeeds and is remorseful.
One former friend who contacted Newsday said that he credits Brown with turning in Kudlik, but accused her of conning him out of money.
"I commend her for reporting him for impersonating a U.S. marshal," said Vincent Lawrence of Huntington. "Well, Pam cons men out of money. She and I were friends. She told me she needed to borrow $600 to pay her rent at the end of 2004. Come August, I still didn‘t get the money from her. Finally, I took her to court. I‘m still waiting to get paid."
