What I am Doing- Phase Two

I curate information on fraud, crime and data breaches in the education and human service sectors (emphasizing entities serving kids and young adults). While undertaking this task, I ran into a number of barriers so I developed the vocational training program

The reason? Education was the sure pathway to middle class in the 1960s. It isn't so true now in 2018. The dysfunctional system has created an atmosphere of every man for himself. For this reason I have developed curricula to train kids and young adults in the inner city on block chain technology, coding, and the use of interactive fiction to find oneself and to achieve one's goals. Mobile games are currently under development based upon these Avatar designs and characters that I created. I can create one for Patreon Supporters upon request. So far, 16 Avatars and 7 interactive stories promoting positive character traits in the midst of challenging and violent times have been developed.

What I have Done- Phase One

I started this journey by building and writing a book, Fraud in Education, see at I have written articles appearing in Fraud Magazine, August/September 2017 issue and November/December 2017 issue. I have also traveled to conferences at my own expense, without honorariums to accept invitations to give presentations and workshops at NICE, FISSEA/NIST, and NASTDEC about the increasing threats to data security, confidential student/parent information, and the exploitation of minors making educator, student and family data vulnerable to international criminal syndicates (1, 2. 3).

How it all Started

I started based upon 10 years work in education. While I recognized that there are so many teachers, k-12 and university administrators, faculty, and state superintendents who do right by our children; some  do wrong and escape the public's notice.

The classrooms where our children and young adults are educated are settings preyed upon by criminals seeking to use the trusting nature of educators for their own gain.  These conditions make staff and students victims of fraud, data breaches, and white collar crime.

How your Support will Help me

Project One:
You will help me (1) inform educators on the flags signifying possible fraud, (2) alert taxpayers and parents to the threat of fraud, white collar crime in education, and (3) help investigators  weed out the bad so that the good educators and administrators can flourish. My blog has about 635 regular (non-paying subscribers). I have written  almost 4-5 articles per month. There are no advertisements on the site. While it is time-consuming, I enjoy providing information and would like to continue, but continuing this project on my own at the expense of paying work is draining my psyche and financial resources. I am seeking Patreons for support so that I may finish this endeavor.

As with fraud that occurs in other sectors (healthcare, insurance, banking, e-commerce, and retail) the veil of fraud in education will be lifted though this site. And until we do so, the improvement of public education will remain an elusive goal.

Project Two:
You will help me (1) assist youth in self discovery, (2) train youth on blockchain, cybersecurity and coding jobs, and (3) provide information technology certification for youth to enhance their employment prospects. I have 7 interactive stories that are web accessible created on the 7 deadly sins. I will share them with Patreons to help me improve the story plots. I expect to transform them to mobile games after obtaining your feedback.

Project Three: Are you Woke Yet?
This is a motivational book I wrote to inspire African Americans to break the chains of negative thinking. A free sample is available by clicking the link.

I am an Educational Psychologist and self taught Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator and Certified Fraud Examiner. With your feedback (positive and/or negative) I can better strategize on which project is of most importance to the public and I can regain the energy and enthusiasm to do what I love, 'helping others by sharing my knowledge."

Thanks for your time!
