  1. Thank you for posting.  I filed my complaint with the CT AG via email yesterday morning!!  I already feel better about the whole situation.  I sent all accompanying documents to support my claims.  I hope it will help stop A4cwsn from taking advantage of parents that are already vulnerable.

    I could not sit by and allow A4cwsn to act as if he was not accountable for ALL the funds collected.  It disturbs me that when questions were ask directly to him he resorted to humiliation, intimidation, and threats via emails, phone calls, twitter and postings on his FB page.

    As the recipient of some of those threats and tactics, I only hope that with time the other members still supporting him will see that there are other places on FB to receive the support they are looking for without all the mind games.

  2. It disturbs me to. Someone running an honest 'charity', business or just a Facebook page wouldn't act as he has done! He is clearly hiding something. I will be filing mine some time this week especially now he has decided he is turning A4cwsn into a business.

  3. It was ALWAYS a business.

  4. I just wanted to let you know that, while I don't know you personally, I am so proud of you for fighting to correct this "wrong." Way to stand up for what is right and not shrug and say, Oh well! Kudos for your persistence and conviction.
