Joshua C. Brady is back....Same old tricks, but we're taking him to court!


First, I want to say thank you to everyone that posted their stories on this site. When I first found out in January 2009 that my 15 year old sister had been talking to "josh" for over two years and was claiming her status on social networking sites as "in a serious relationship", I did as much research as possible to find out who this crazy pedophile sounding guy was. I've read all kinds of posts on WHT, dsl reports, broadband reports, free press release on SOM, SOMS, SOMITHO, FUNZIZE, Josh Brady and every other name he has used and the folks at WHT have given my family a boatload of supporting evidence to support our claims of fraud.


By the way, he was served in Chesterfield County, VA yesterday. Josh Brady is his real name. The Petersburg, VA address still works, despite his claims of living in Charlottesville and Richmond. He has gotten my 16 year old sister into a lot of trouble and last week, he got her to go along with his scam with a local car dealership. He convinced the sales manager to go along with his story as well. While I can't go into all of those details (until the court case is over tomorrow), I can go into a bit of detail about our story.

I received a call from my sister in January stating that her best friend and (*sic* boyfriend) wanted to talk to me on the phone about their "relationship". Even though we live in different cities, I'm very close with my sister and this was the first I had heard of this guy. Apparently, in 2007 he im'ed her out of nowhere (similarly to the young girl in Chicago in 2007) under the name FUNZIZE and claimed to know friends of hers. Two years later and approaching her 16th birthday, she claimed that she could emancipate herself and live with this rich guy that she met online.... I can't even begin to go into all of the drama that has taken place over the last six months. Harassing phone calls, identity fraud (both my and my boyfriend's bank and email accounts were hacked into shortly after Josh called me. Yes, I actually spoke with him on the phone for over an hour.

Despite the efforts of my parents, her teachers and counselor at school and the rest of our family, she is lying and going behind everyone's backs in order to talk to him. My mother is not internet savvy at all and had no idea that she could communicate with him in so many different ways. She finally disconnected the internet and took my sister's phone away. This week, my sister mysteriously received another phone. He has promised her friends cars and has been continually harassing me from different numbers on my cell phone. My sister is failing all of her classes (from being on the phone with him all night and texting him all day during class) and the school counselor has agreed to appear in court. Oh yeah, Josh called him at the school and demanded to be in a three way conversation with both the counselor and my sister.

He's convinced my sister...(more like brainwashed her) into thinking that this behavior is ok. When my mother forbid him from calling, my sister had a new friend "Ryan" appear out of nowhere. I told my mother it was Josh, and to call the parents of this Ryan guy, but again, she's too trusting and wanted to give my sister the benefit of the doubt. Ryan's father phoned her and my mom seemed convinced that he was legit. Ryan's father was apparently a tax attorney in DC, Thomas Cryan (yeah, I know! "RYAN CRYAN").... This Thomas Cryan is a real person, but he's in his early 40's and lives in Virginia.. and doesn't have a son in high school. The number that he called her from turned out to be another number that Josh had set up in the District.

The final straw was Josh getting my sister involved with the car scam. All things told, this guy is a creep and liar and I hope he shows up tomorrow.

Sorry if this email seems to jump all over the place, but I wanted to say thanks again to all of the people that posted. I can't imagine all of the people he has screwed over the years and I hope this is the last time. I'll post an update for anyone who is interested.

And! I'll also be bringing copies of all of your posts to court tomorrow. Wish us (my family) luck!

It looks like he used the name "SOMS" on here, but I didn't see any posts beyond 2005 from him.

Maybe he was banned or just disappeared ... He has used all of these screen/business names:

SOMS
SOM
somitho
jcbbs
jcbiddy
jcbba
funzize
jbva
jcbba@aim.com

I hope so! I'm writing my testimony now. I'd love to post the entire thing if this court hearing goes well tomorrow. Thanks for all of the support. I wonder if anyone that he scammed in previous years has read any of this. My roommate found the young woman from Chicago (the pinklace8691 girl) and sent her a message on Myspace but hasn't heard anything. I just hope that other people who are looking for information on this guy check here first before speaking to him any further.

Uh,

What does this have to do with WHT in general?

Coming in as your first post, discussing a pending court case is distasteful, especially when the party you're making accusations about isn't around to defend themselves.

If what you say is true, I'm sure the courts will conclude the matter, hopefully in your favour, you could otherwise be facing libel charges from whats written above after all. Let the courts do their job, keep your laundry out of WHT (please).

What this has to do with WHT is that several WHT members have been scammed by this creep in the past....or did you not read my initial post or any other post regarding Josh Brady?

He didn't show up in court today, but we're going to trial in two weeks. Everything I'm saying here has been submitted to the courts in my testimony and is a matter of public record.

I do know that there are some people on WHT that appreciate this thread. This is for them and for anyone else that might be a victim or potential victim of his lies and fraud.

If you haven't been affected by this parasite of a person, consider yourself lucky.

Hi Porcupine,

Sorry, I have to disagree with you here on a couple of items:

1. This was posted in the WHT Lounge. Under this forum heading it says "Forum for general conversation, share interests, have a laugh or discuss anything not related to above or below forums." Doesn't say it *has* to be related to WHT. Gosh, if everything had to be WHT-related, this forum might not exist.

2. Regarding a first post - well, ya gotta start somewhere!

3. I do hope the courts do their job... and hopefully find in the victim's favor.

4. Personally I am thankful an item like this is posted - helps me keep updated on some things. There are too many nutballs out there.

--

@heartsnscars: I hope the best for you & yours. Please keep us posted. And yes, I for one DO appreciate your post, thank you. Good luck!
