    Default CANADIAN IN JAIL IS PROBABLY A HOAX

    The majority of the posts concerning the poor Canandian boy in jail who needs money and assistance all come from the same computer. The address is 'px1cv.gv.shawcable.net' . The names of the posters are changing but the computer address is still the same. The dialect typing style is even changing but the address is still the same. Send money at your own risk. Has anyone noticed that not once has this boy or his family been identified by name?

    I agree. The story becomes less credible by the minute. Paid to transport cocaine from Venezuela to Spain in the soles of his shoes! How many Kilos fit in there?

    Yes, the Canadian in Jail does not hold water. All posts originate from the same IP address. As a MSCE networking professional, I can tell you that it is a common scam played on unsuspecting people that would not normally be aware that all the posts albeit with different names, are coming from the same computer. Insomuch that no name of the incarcerated drug offender has been given which could easily be verified by others living in the D.R., and that money donations have been requested for such anonymous person, this is 99.99% a hoax for sympathetic suckers.

    I have been trying to tell you naive people such things in the past couple of days. These people are only soliciting from you. When I tried to express my opinions the Dr1 board (Rob and Delores, I guess) has deleted my messages. When I then voiced a response regarding them deleting my messages, they deleted those as well. I am glad you people are finally seeing the light. DR1 are you going to delete this also, or are you beginning to realize what is going on? I expect an apology and I also expect my posts to be put back on the board!!

    Default no it is not

    No this is not a hoax, My wife and myself were at the jail ourselves and met this young man and took pictures of him and sent them to his caring Family. We also talked to this young man for approx 1 hour when we were there. Of course this can be easily checked out, that is not a concern of the familys, they are truly concerned for thier son/brother. There has been a missionary from the D.R. that has went and seen him. Also the Canadien consulate has also been there, but as said before..they are there to make sure your rights are not being violated and thats it. And yes this family is asking for help, only because they desparatly need it, not only in the way of money, but support for Matt. Mellissa the sister is willing to move down there if she could find a job, so she could be near her brother. If just one or two ppl visited Matt, then that would be better than no-one visiting. If someone wanted to send a coupla bucks to a reputable organization that could forward it to Matt in jail,or send it to a lawyer, so Matt could be properly represented that would be great as well. Is it so bad this family is reaching out?....All kinds of ppl do this, and not only for money, but for everything. I am the person who put the first message on this board. The family was not. If anyone has any questions about the authenticity of this young man being in jail, I would be more than happy to go out of my way and get some sort of concrete proof. So please be rest assured this is not a hoax(but I can and will get proof...if needed)And please don't be so hard on this family....they are trying to cope with this situation...Thank You for your time....Doug

    Douglas, please explain why the messages posted by bb, sister, M, Melissa, Lill and Patrick all have the same IP address indicating that the messages all came from the same computer (px1cv.gv.shawcable.net).

    Doug,
    I was helping an American two years ago on a trumped up drugs charge - I think I know my way round a bit. Please advise full name of Matt, which Jail he is in & when committed to jail. Who is the Consul you know that has been visiting Matt & which town/city is he in? How often does he visit? Do you know which days are visiting days at the Jail so that I can get in myself?

    Melissa says the date of trial is fixed for June 5th, is this a full trial or Habeas Corpus? I know the best lawyer for drugs charges here on the North Coast - he represented our American Friend over the 14 months of his incarceration. Maybe I could ask him to assist in Matt's case? Maybe Melissa would like to fill in these details if you don't have them.

    Anymore information would enable those of us "on the ground" in the DR, to be more active & helpful in our support.

    What part of London are you from by the way? As you might have gathered from the 'British' spellings I use, I am a 'Brit' Ex-Pat. Been here (& love it) nearly nine years.
    Regards - Grahame ^_^

    Larry, I'm sorry I can not answer that. Not being evasive, I just don't know. It very well could be from the family, I have not asked them as of yet. But I know Mellissa posted two of them because she felt the more that is mentioned about her brother than the more response that there would be, it is not the brightest thing to do, but if you were crying for help and after one of your crys....you got some response...do you quit crying, or cry louder and more often? Like I said, not maybe the smartest thing to do, but Mellissa is grasping at every straw that is within her reach. Albeit I would do the same thing if it was one of my children there! And Grahame...I'm sorry, I'm from the countrie of Canada so that would be London, Ontario. that you are seeing, not London England. as I think that is what you think it is. My wife is from London England though...lol. As for me I'm from Sarnia Ontario. right on the border of the good ol U.S.A (Port Huron, Mich.)But to answer your questions I'll get all of the above info and forward it to you, after I O.K. it with the family, if that would be ok with yourself. And Larry and Grahame....I thank you for your trust and you believeing that this is indeed not a hoax. Thanks Doug

    trafficking drugs into dominican republic is a crime like in any other country. this guy was bringing drugs to this country and this is illegal. he knew was he was doing, he is not an angel who was caught with a small cigarrette. he was caught with cocaine. and this is penalized here in dominican as well as it is in the States, Canada or any other country.
    this is a safe country and we want to continue being safe. we dont want to be another puerto rico or jamaica. the government here is making a big effort to keep this country clean of drugs, so my advice to tourists who wants to bring drugs into DR, think twice before doing.
    I really feel sorry for his family, but this is the law, and he is not innocent.
    she says that her family is very poor. very poor in canada? does she really know what poor is? does she know how many poor dominican families have some relatives in jail in the States or Canada without money to visit them?
