I received a message today from Oscomer’s wife (Name not shown). She had someone come to her door representing themselves as a representative of LumberJocks. He stated that he was there to help her. He made some comment about his shop. He wanted to come into the house and she wouldn’t let him in.

He physically threw her to the ground and scratched her when she yelled. A neighbor heard the scream and came to her assistance. The person disappeared.

When the police came he told her that we had provided in some of our blogs about Oscomer’s last name, the name of his wife and their son.

Her request was that we remove and/or blank out the family and her name and her son’s name and also the city and state.

I directed her to edit his profile and remove the town and state. I’m editing any blogs that I’ve created to edit out the names to protect her. if there are any comments, we cannot edit them.

I will contact Martin to see if any comments with their names can be edited or removed.

If you have posted any blogs, you can edit them.

Again she was really scared and asked for our assistance.

Thanks all and lets keep this place safe for all.

That’s terrible. Good that her neighbor was there and was willing to get involved. I hope she was able to give the police a good description of the jerk and they can catch him. I know about 2000 LJs that will have something to say to him.

I’m glad she’s OK.

OMG, that’s one reason my wife will never open the door for anyone. Anyone that wants to come see her, better call first.

I wouldn’t have anything to say to him but fist does.

Thank God she is okay but there are a lot of low lifes out there and perhaps we all should be more careful with things we give out. I hope something can be done to get the guy.

I am so sorry that happened. I truly hope she is okay. I really hope the police are able to work this out and get the guy. My prayers are with her and her family.

May God keep each of you safe.

I am stunned at the thought of someone so low as to try and take advantage of and hurt a woman who lost her husband less than a month ago.

If the person who did this is reading this post…May God have mercy on you, I hope the authorties won’t.

Hopefully it was just someone trolling the site. I’d hate to think it was an actual member of the site that assaulted his wife.

There is a special corner in hell for s**theads like this. I pray that he is not one of our number.
It’s commonly known that there is a class of bottom feeders that check the local obituaries, and attempt to burglarize homes during funeral services. We had someone house-sit during my Father’s funeral, and sure enough there was someone around to case the joint during the service. Vile.

A chilling reminder that while 99% of people are very nice, the 1% dirtbags ruin it for everyone else. Hope the catch this guy. Reminds us all to keep real names, addresses out of our blogs. Thank goodness she is ok.

Despite the cameraderie and good will that prevails on LJ’s, this foul incident just reinforces the the need for care with what we include in posts here and especially on other sites. There is a tiny percentage of “lurkers” out there that don’t have good intentions. Thank God she was not seriously hurt.
