The bottom line is this appears to be an absolute scam that has
been played on the UFO community.

These scams seem to work to an extent. Note below I am not
talking about legit witnesses and legit stories as there is alot
of those.

What we generally see is someone come forward and foist some
incredible UFO-related story. Naturally some people in the UFO
community are breathlessly waiting to be the first to put the
story out over the radio, internet and other means. Naturally
these same people are so eager to unload the story, that they
don't bother to do things like fact checking, verification of
people and their claimed back grounds etc etc.

Naturally when the story and or the person can't be verified,
these same people never step up to the plate, say that it
appears that they got duped swindled or whatever and they
apologize for passing around seemingly bogus information.
Instead they either stonewall it and never talk about it again,
or they rationalize everything away by claiming that even though
nothing can be verified, that in and of itself is proof that the
so called evil government was covering something up.

Thus we see how the cycle works in the UFO community.
