YouHoo! Damsel in Distress! Is there a philanthropist in the room? karma is biting chunks out of DRS's ass

Yes, 86, this is an incidence of Quick Karma.
Raye and Robert Brobst, and perhaps his wife, contacted the energy company, Illumination in early January of this year, after I had put the name of the utilities in my name in the mistaken belief that since Raye had closed her accounts on December 30, 2014 at close of business, her move was imminent – as in that weekend.
I then called Landlord Brobst and left a message asking he contact me so I could arrange to rent the house. He never called. Instead, he, Raye, and perhaps his wife, Stormie, contacted Illumination and apparently engaged in identity theft, telling the Superintendent I had given my consent to a change in my new account. I had not done so and would not have under any circumstances.
When I became aware of this I immediately made plans to move, finally realizing Raye and others were acting in conspiracy to keep me from holding her accountable for enticing me to come to Ohio and then attempting to sell the lie I had never worked for her and also recharacterize my housing, which was a benefit of my employment and so deductible by Raye from her income tax.
I called Illumination and made several complaints when I realized that they had stopped, and then restarted my account without my permission on February 2nd, 2015, when I expected to be moving within a short time.
Illumination could, at the request of the landlord, end my account but they could not then restart it without my having given permission.
On the fourth call I persuaded the Superintendent to review the record and she realized it needed to be bumped up to another level, and did so. Then she explained it appeared to be a case of identity theft and told me to make a formal complaint to the FEC, which I did.
This could be a civil tort except except for some circumstances which make it possible it was criminal. I am pursuing this along with the other advice provided to me through the FEC and other agencies.
So, now Raye is being billed for attempting to create the appearance I was paying part of the cost of housing, which she probably intended to use at some later time.

Hi, Folks -
Rayelan's electricity has been shut off - and because her water comes from a well, that means not only no electricity but also no water, including no working toilet.
Why? There's an unpaid bill totaling about $2000. The electric company says they're not interested in partial payment; the entire amount must be paid.
How? Apparently the bill covers the period from January through till now. Rayelan says she never saw a bill from the electric company for service at the new rented house; she figured the landlord was paying it while the house was being readied for occupancy, or thought perhaps it was included in the large amounts of the electrical bills at the previous house.
Raye's already begun figuring out how to survive this - battery powered lanterns; alternative toilet arrangements; etc. - but with this happening on top of the toothache, her general weariness, her Jeep being in hock, and mice running all over the place, she's not the happiest of campers right now.
Thus my call for a philanthropist. If there's anyone among the RMN Readers whose pockets are deep enough to be able to deal with this particular situation, this would be an ideal moment to step forward and help someone who really needs your help.
If there's not such a one present and willing to help, it's back to "just us folks" with however much we might be able to manage, together. If 250 of us contribute $10 apiece, we would save the day. :) (250 instead of 200, because PayPal takes a bite from each amount contributed.)
Right now, the FundRazr widget is at $3416, thanks to the 54 very fine folks who have contributed already this month. So our goal to cover this urgent need of the moment is, let's say, $5500 or better.
God bless us every one.
