UPDATE - Recap and more

 Thanks for sending!  I do not think the Landlord is going to be happy when he sees the 'changes' Rayelan and her crew of Minions wrot - But into every life a little rain, and snow and sleet and the occasional earthquake, must fall. 

First, our Recap:

There was no sign Rayelan actually intended to move through any of the multitude of dates she gave to the Readers, so eager and willing to assist her (read this as 'be fleeced) when the idea of her moving began last July.  

What was happening was an ongoing attempt to persuade me she was moving and so get me to leave of my own accord.  Boxes left via the small bed pickup truck which seemed curiously light when carried out.  This began last summer when I received the report she had filled five large storage units.  Right there we are talking a cost equivalent to the  rental of a house in Ashtabula.  

Sometimes she seemed to forget she was moving and again become too, too, disease-ridden to move.  Except that she was partying with her minions to all hours of the night and waltzing out on expeditions which resulted in more stuff being carried into the house, which was supposedly being emptied.  

Then, on December 30th, because the water was turned off, I discovered Rayelan had failed to pay the water bill.  If you look at her history all the way to the Phoenix Project  in 1993 - 1994 you will see she is always asking for money to pay for bills, being overdrawn and to escape from those nasty people who all oppress her.  I am only the latest in a long line of these.  

So, I took over the water bill (Aqua), the electric bill (Illumination Co.) and the gas bill (Dominion), thinking Rayelan was finally moving out and I would be able to rent the place in my own name.  

But Rayelan, always thorough in her whining and lies had evidently persuaded the landlord, Bob Brobst of local tree trimming and stump removal fame, I was the nasty and threatening source of the problem.  Bob served the NOTICE TO LEAVE THE PREMISES on me which was also served on Rayelan.  

But this was actually a conspiracy cooked up between Rayelan, the landlord and at least one, but possibly two attorneys to force me to move while she stayed.  This is Abuse of Process and really should be reported to the authorities. 

I pointed this out in a post here, which elicited from Rayelan the complaint I knew too much about the law to be an honest person.  Not true.  My experience comes from assisting battered women get restraining orders and such.  But what do you expect from a psychopath?    

But it was clear I would not be able to rent this place so I started looking around.  

Then, I discovered in another step of collusion Bob had, at Rayelan's request, called the utility companies so the utilities could be returned to her until January 30th.  I would then take over on the 2nd.  No one asked me if this was alright with me, which is certainly an issue and will be taken up later.  

I made arrangements to move in short order.  

Then, considering the way Rayelan had taken advantage of Brobst who clearly is credulous, I sent him a copy, with exhibits of the action I filed against Rayelan last Friday via fax.  I thought he ought to be warned even if I was annoyed with him.  

Until last Saturday no real moving had taken place, just occasional small stuff being carted off by Tom.  But Friday after noon there was a lot of noise, with Rayelan screaming on the phone.  I could not tell what she was saying but, clearly, she was filled with vitriol and spewing.  

On Saturday moving began. 

Supplemental Information – Pillsbury-Foster vs. Smith

Small Claims Case No. _______________

I am requesting the amount of $3,000 from Raye A. Smith, AKA Rayelan Allan, born name Darlene Rae Smith, as an award for the following causes.

The first cause is having relocated to Ohio from my home in California at Ms. Smith's request. Ms. Smith offered numerous enticements to exact my agreement to do so. I am asking to be reimbursed for my expenses for driving to Ohio, a trip which took me over three weeks because my vision makes driving at night difficult for me.
(SEE – Two Medical Records)I also included two letters showing Arthur, my son, is disabled and will never be able to support himself.  

Item No. One - $1,322
Reimbursement for my expenses for coming to Ohio in November of 2011. This took several weeks due to my poor eyesight of which Ms. Smith had been duly informed before I agreed to come. My unreimbursed expenses came to $1,322, totaled on the back of one of my business cards. (SEE Note on card)

Ms. Smith has said I imposed myself on her and was an 'uninvited guest.' This statement entirely ignores the documentation. I was already working for her as Director of Advertising for her online site, Rumor Mill News and for her 'radio station,' RMN Radio, where she had also asked me to host a show on Tuesdays. Although she removed any mention of me from the site I had my own site and maintained records of my guests. The show was Reclaim America and the site I maintained can be viewed online.

Cost-free housing was offered to me as a benefit of my employment, both Director of Advertising and COO for Rubicon Aegis, LLC.

I left my home in CA, on which I still pay the mortgage, and my friends to come to Ohio where I knew no one but Ms. Smith.

(SEE Emailbetween myself and Ms. Smith after she hired me dated September 13, 2011.)

Duration of Employment as Director for Advertising

I was still working as Director for Advertising in August 2013, an employment lasting over two years. I have hundreds and hundreds of emails documenting this and a list of advertisers, with their correspondence to me as well. I will produce these in court so the court can see they are in my email account and genuine.

The enticements which made me decide to accept Ms. Smith's offer were an offer to partner with her in a corporation to be organized which would be focused on online publishing and a benefit package which included medical insurance. Ms. Smith told me this entity would then own Rumor Mill News (RMN). RMN generates a decent income through advertising but it was clear to me it could at least double this if a redesign took place.

In coming to Ohio I was to be Chief Operating Officer of Rubicon Aegis, LLC. Ms. Smith was Chief Executive Officer of the company we would, together, start.

As part of my assigned duties as COO Ms. Smith asked me to find a state where the LLC could be inexpensively incorporated. I did research and provided to her with information on five different states, printing these out on my own printer. Ms. Smith then asked I use for printing our business cards and for multiple other jobs since Ms. Smith's own printer was not working.

Soon after this Ms. Smith informed me she had suffered undisclosed financial reversals which made it impossible for us to start the corporation immediately. She asked me to wait and began giving me household chores to do.

Only much later did I discover she had already incorporated Rubicon Aegis, LLC, in Ohio the year previous. The Incorporation Number being 1986471, incorporation date November 18, 2010 and it appears the Ohio entity is the actual owner of Rumor Mill News.

This appears to be fraud from the inception. See The History of Raye A. Smith for insight as to her history as a con-artist.

Item No. Two - $1,440.
I am asking for payment for one job Ms. Smith assigned me unrelated to either my job as Director of Advertising for Rumor Mill News, for which she had hired me in early September 2011 while I was still in California, or as a partner in Rubicon Aegis, LLC, which entity she told me we would operate together, as partners.

Beginning in January 2012 Ms. Smith asked me to carry out household tasks, which included cleaning out the basement, then filled with unopened boxes from her previous move from California to Ohio, which had taken place two years previously. I was to sort these and organize them as well. I did so.

Cleaning out the basement took nearly a month of days of not less than six hours each, including Saturday. At the moderate rate of $10 an hour this comes to $1,440.

Causes Three & Four – Utility Bills - $328.08
Payment for utility bills of $226.12 (Aqua) and $101.08 (Dominion Gas) I paid to keep the water on and in the mistaken belief Ms. Smith was moving and I could, therefore, rent the house in my own name. I was told when I called Aqua, Illumination Co., and Dominion Ms. Smith had turned off the gas as of December 3oth and would be moved by that day. These facts came to my attention because Aqua turned off the water because Ms. Smith failed to pay the bill.

The History of Raye A. Smith - Discovered from Research

Ms. Smith, then divorced from her second husband, married Gunther Russbacher on August 30, 1989. Russbacher claimed to be formerly the number three man in the CIA and the pilot who flew George H. W. Bush to Paris to set up the October Surprise in 1979. This claim appears to be a fabrication.

In an article published in the Chicago Tribune,A Pro Con, by Michael Tackett on March 17, 1992, Russbacher is revealed to be a con-man. At the time the article was written Russbacher had recently been convicted and sentenced to 21 years in prison in St. Charles County, Missouri.

In an article about Ms. Smith and her then husband, Gunther Russbacher, published November 15, 1994 by The Phoenix Project, both Ms. Smith and her husband are publicly named as con-men who bilked supporters of thousands of dollars.

(See ARTICLE: The Phoenix Project)

The article contains this statement by Ms. Smith. “I need $2,000 for my phone bill,” the writer then states Ms. Smith, referred to as Rayelan, one of her pseudonyms, in the article, asked for money for other bills after she and her husband committed credit card fraud, charging $36,000 to pay for “Gunther's coronation” in Austria.

Ms. Smith still claims she is the legitimate Arch-Duchess of Austria, though Russbacher divorced her in 1996 and immediately, by Ms. Smith's report, remarried.

The Phoenix Project article includes this quote, chastising a Dr. Koenig for trusting the Russbachers. “ should have checked this out a bit more carefully. One of the smoothest SCAMS ever run was foisted off on these people AND YOU by the so-called Russbachers.”

The writer goes on to say the police in Vienna said Russbacher had been in prison in Germany, the U. S. and also in Austria.

The article includes the same formula for panhandling which is replicated online at Rumor Mill News today as a matter of routine.

On Rumor Mill News Ms. Smith continually claims to be either victimized or in desperate straits and unable to pay her utility bills or other necessities. RMN Readers donate around $3,000 to $4,000 a month to relieve needs which I observed while living in the housing provides, upstairs from Ms. Smith, did not exist.

After coming to Ohio at the end of 2011 I learned that around 2007 Rumor Mill News Readers were enticed to invest in what was presented as a 'Family Campground' to be developed in Rock Creek, Ohio and invested thousands of dollars. The money was never accounted for and the subject was dropped from discussion.

RMN is organized to give Ms. Smith complete control of what appears on the site. Posters, referred to as 'Agents' who annoy her are summarily eliminated and unable to take issue with anything she says. There is no channel for appeal. Readers who post use handles, not their names so locating each other and sharing information is nearly impossible.

I did not actually read RMN until after coming to Ohio. When Ms. Smith asked me to consider partnering with her to improve the look and income of Rumor Mill I looked at the layout to assess the need for redesign but not the content, which included subjects, for instance aliens and multiple conspiracies, which did not interest me.

At the time, Ms. Smith I was already working as Director for Advertising for Rumor Mill News.

(SEE Letter for employment, October 19, 2011 and Email Correspondence September 13, 2011. )

Over the time I was working for her Ms. Smith drained me of resources. She then attempted to force me to leave without even firing me. Knowing I had documentation of my work and employment she has attempted in various ways to force me to leave without attempting to evict me, which would put us in a court of law where I could present my evidence.

On January 5, 2015 Ms. Smith published a Post which appeared on Rumor Mill News libeling me. This same post publicly states I am a free loader who foisted myself on her, ignoring that I am in Ohio as an employee occupying 'corporate housing.' The post is an astonishing fabrication of outright lies.

I made multiple attempts to reach a resolution by settlement using my attorney and offered mediation through the minister of the church we then both attended.

The issue of slander and libel are not being raised here in any legal sense. The material is presented to illustrate the methods Ms. Smith employs and her personal history.

I am now asking friends and associates to send me character references and will have those at the hearing.

Comment - 

 Rayelan thinks she is being oppressed and threatened if you tell the truth about what is happening or if (gasp) it becomes clear you become aware she is lying though her teeth.  

Also, I now realize Rayelan was trying to get rid of me because I brought in an account from someone I knew which would generate real, substantial income.  Being a greedy gut, as are most psychopaths, she decided she needed to get rid of me so she could have it all for herself.  There were actually two of these in a short period of time.  

Now, before this had occurred to me I might have a legal obligation to inform those overseeing a duty to inform those officials who oversee businesses remain both orderly and operate legally.  To check I called each agency.  Actually, I am still calling them since once I got into it I realized there were far more than I realized.  

I don't need to name these individually.  Assume I was able to find most of them since, as I chatted with them and provided hard data and evidence, I discovered they were very helpful about making more suggestions. 

And to celebrate Gunther's Coronation: 

The Coronation of Gunther Russbacher, Arch Duke of Austria - a Rayelan Fantasy Moment


  1. Winning your case should be a slam dunk, because she will not show up. Your next step is to collect, if she fails to show up for an examination of assets, you can have the judge issue a bench warrant and set her bail at the amount of the judgement. Oh happy day! Think how much money Rayelan can scam from the readers with her tales of arrest and financial needs for legal fees and bail.

    1. A delight to consider. But in small claims they go right to the lien and I know where her money comes from.

  2. Rayelan claims her second husband died in 1988

    Did you mean: raylan's second husband died in what year?

    AMAZING LIFE OF Rayelan Allan, Publisher, RMNews

    Were they going to stage an accident and say she was dead when they found her? She accepted her imminent death, but in a split second, reality changed. The small ... After her husband's death in 1988, Rayelan moved to New York City.

  3. Right you would levy her bank account or paypal, but she can close those accounts before the judgement is satisfied. It has been many years since I was involved with small claims in California, but often the debtor would close the bank accounts and quit their jobs, unless there was property to lein, the next step was examination of assets.

    1. So I put a lien on RMN. And the case is in Ohio.

  4. In my experience, liens were only useful in the event they sold their property, but I hope you are right and she pays you immediately. She can do her usual histrionic performance for the marks who read RMN and raise buckets of money over your
    outrageous assault on Rayelan's integrity and generosity and your vicious persecution of the brave Rayelan Allan. You might say it's a win-win for all parties except for the fools paying for it.
