I received this comment on an old post here and felt it needed to be up front. It so resonates of the same type of scam that is run by "No Kill". When the Whino saw Philly falling, what did he do, spit out his handpicked manager rather than tried to help.
This is from a commenter named Sara. And I would like her to know that contact has been made with the reporter in the post link. He is trying to nail down some more on Vonda and you might want to contact him. Thank you for supplying this info and for helping that poor woman. Yes, you are right, he is a disgrace to the Native Americans in every way. Please do all you can to bring faith back to this woman you are helping and give her our prayers for a recovery.
Vonda is a piece of work. I just pulled a woman out of that situation. Like all the women his safe harbor scam is the way he finds abused women that he can abuse even more to get them to follow him. Once he gets them to believe his lies he moves them in, takes all that they own and sells it. He strips them down to having nothing at all. Works them to death and abuses them as he sees fit. Just trying to leave will get you beat.
The woman I pulled out will take years to undo the damage he did, he didn't care that she came from an abusive marriage with an alcoholic spouse. He used her, took everything and spit her out.
Being a real Native American myself, he gives our people a bad name which we can do without. He wasn't even given the name "soaring eagle", he gave it to himself which is an insult to native americans everywhere.
Only a couple of women with him, actually help him with his scams. The other ones only do what they are told so they don't get beat. Like many other they were just trying to escape a abusive situation when they thought Safe Harbor would help them, they didn't know it was worse than where they were.
I would be interested in knowing more about his scams before TX, I am doing my best to make sure he ends up in prison where he needs to be.
