Ran into this dude in the main square by the bus station. Tall, skinny black dude in the marines, 24 y/o. He is stalkery, extremely controlling, psychologically manipulative, and targets travelers. within 30 minutes of meeting this dude he ran a military background check on me. He offered me work painting houses but kept prolonging it.when I ditched him he followed me yelling down the street, called the cops on me n was threatening to press charges just for trying to get away from him. I mean shit idk whyd you go to Montgomery in the first place, but if you find yourself there, AVOID THIS DUDE. He targets travelers n is fucking nuts.

how within 30 minutes of meeting this guy did he manage to run a military back ground check on you? doesnt that take time and a social security number? but dude sounds nuts for sure.
There are sites meant for use by private investigators where you can look up someone by name and general location and find out their SSN, any past known phone number or address and other info. Kevin Mitnick writes about this in his book The Art of Invisibility.

He knew my name and hometown. Started asking me if i knew certain people from my hometown n i asked why. Then he said it was because he called his base for a bg check which he pulled up on his phone. Said he was a seargant. Gave me his mos n all that. Sounds like a complete misuse of that technology... you can't just fuck with random civilians like that

So what kind of info did that bring up? Like anything the cops would have or even more perhaps? Thats pretty fucked up. Id say thats probably a huge misuse of his privelages nevermind technology. Im not a lawyer but id say thats crossing some boundaries. Id anonymously call the fbi on the motherfucker. For real. I wouldnt get involved directly because the system is corrupt so im sure alot of scumbags with power would have his back but maybe this particular individual should have less authority. Be carefull who you entrust any personal info too i guess. Im gonna seriously go by my travel names after hearing this. Fuck.

yet another reason to refuse to answer random stranger's questions!

it seems like almost everyone who approaches me is trying to get something so I don't feel bad when I refuse to engage or ask them questions in response.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $45.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $45.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
