This story got my attention very quickly. I passed it along to that incredible blog, http://www.cravendesires.blogspot.com/ and guess what they came up with, incredible. Along with the vet in Seattle who was prescribing medication for himself in the name of his dead dog and campaigning for Nathan Winograd's "No Kill Equation", this is another example of those types who are attracted to the illogical "No Kill" scam. Go to the Craven blog to get the whole story, it's worth a good read.
JAMES SOARING EAGLE VONDA a.k.a. JAMES HERBERT (Subject of the above article)
VONDA/HERBERT has quite a long list of scams. and according to the many pissed off victims, his crimes range from New York to Missouri to Texas and beyond.
on Vonda's linkedin page, he claims to have earned a PhD at the London School of Economics yet his writing ability, spelling and grammar barely meet that of a high school graduate.
(note that most of the links in these sites do not work)
www.medicinewheelusa.com (this is VONDA'S wildlife preservation scam)
safe harbor ranch (a safe place to sleep, work and live as a tribe)
safe harbor foundation (moving victims from crisis to confidence and bondage)
the SOARING EAGLE claims to run some kind of a safe house for victims of domestic violence and drug abuse but I suspect this is nothing more than a way to expand his harem of slaves.
axiom commercial funding filed bankruptcy june 1, 2008, citing the "staggering fraud" perpetrated by both brokers and borrowers. yet, I found a mortgage website (www.vondafamilytrust.com) that was last updated TODAY, 4-20-10. The RipOffReport has documented his antics. there is an interesting chat about JAMES VONDA on the mortgage grapevine, and VONDA shows up to defend himself. the BBB gives him an F. the pissed consumer has a lot to say about this trickster.
But nothing will bring in the bucks like animal rescue/No Kill which is why VONDA has now turned to NO KILL as his next con. cities across the US need to be aware of him. memorize his photo because I'm sure that another name change is in his future.

what does the noble Indian want to do with all of this philanthropic moolah?
I believe that all of these different cons are simply a way for JAMES SOARING EAGLE VONDA to create his polyamorous wiccan BDS&M empire. I thought I was finished researching this old, ugly, bloated psychopath, when I stumbled on this little gem. it appears that VONDA/HERBERT is trying to carve out a little BDS&M empire for himself and his diseases riddled concubines. if SOARING EAGLE gets his way, and scams enough poor unsuspecting dupes, his legacy could be a BDS&M hotel, shops, jewelry and more. any time you see the words VONDA, SAFE HARBOR or WHITE WOLF, caveat emptor!
Hey, this scam expert knows a good scam when he sees one, thus "No Kill".
