What Happened to Ducky??

27 05 2008

Ducky just decided to fade away into the unknown. The blog was pulled, the photos were pulled. The account wiped clean. Even the email no longer works.

Why??

Did ducky feel like all the work was done in bringing Heidi down??

Did Ducky get cold feet??

We will probably never know why they decided to pack it in. Our many questions will most likely go unanswered.

I may ruffle a few feathers but I’ve got to say my piece here. Many of us have busted our rear ends doing things to further tighten the noose on ol’ Heidi, adding one more nail in the coffin. Does Ducky not realize how much valuable information was lost when they decided to pull the blog. Or do they just not care any more.

I fully understand possible activist burnout. I’ve hit the wall many times over the years in the fight for various causes. But I never just gave up. Deleting the blog was childish in my opinion. If they weren’t interested in the fight anymore it would have been very easy just to leave the blog dormant or pass it on to someone who would use it.

Were they afraid someone may find out their identity??

I say so what.

The fight is long from being over with. The truth STILL needs to be told. Oh yeah….one more thing to say…..

WE AIN’T DONE YET

Let’s Review Important Information

5 10 2007

Since July we’ve posted about the dangers of the Kimkins diet and the deceptions used in selling it.

For those just tuning in, please take a few moments to read some of our most important posts:

Information about the class action lawsuit is available here.

Information about requesting refunds at PayPal is available here.

A summary of the controversy is available on Wikipedia. (Wiki deleted the article)

UPDATE: Ducky is taking the weekend off to spend time with family and friends. For those new to our blog, please take some time this weekend to read our posts and understand why we feel it is important the truth about Kimkins and Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) be exposed. For those continuing along and keeping up, we’ll be back on Monday and hope you’ll take a breather this weekend too to relax and have some fun!

We will be moderating comments over the weekend, so if you leave a comment, it will be in the queue until we get to it as we have time throughout the weekend.

The Psychic Predicts…

27 09 2007

It’s starting off a banner day in the speculation department as to whom Ducky is.

First Tippytoes is sure we’re admins and members from Low Carb Friends. Now, theTRUTH posted private messages between SingingLass and Kimmer, with SingingLass offering her insights about who we are.

Oh, it doesn’t get any better than this!

SingingLass wrote:

Thats the fun stuff. I keep the kimkins site open in my IE browser, and when I go to any of those sites or LCF, I do so seperately through aol, fav places etc…so that they cannot see a browsing trail. I use a statistical traffic counter thingy on my listings myself. Someone must have linked some peeps from the chat room yesterday though, or at least so ducky claimed. I had actually wondered if you had peeked at it last night because someone announomously posted ” all of a dozen of you” on that. I have posted a couple times on the boards under different names just wanting to try to point out holes, its pretty pointless though, they don’t want to hear anything that bursts their obsession bubble. Ducky is definately grasping for straws though…most likely Catherine’s husband, prolly wanted to set up a couple different slam sites to try to broaden the appearance of the scope and people against you.

I also am not surprised no one has contacted you, its why I have laughed at them calling everyone, their silly petitions. Firstly, those kind of investigations tend to start with an undercover preliminary peeksie. Meaning they would have some underling at first poke their head in here to see if there is any kind of story or truth, no one wants to make a foll of themselves by running with something that is not solid…..and what they will find is not what is being spread around. People get what they pay for, no advice being given for people to eat nothing but grass…..and no where in the purchasing agreement does it say that people are entitled to know your bra size or choice of toilet paper. In order to have a real case, there would have to be huge lackings in what was promised, people paying and getting nothing and the like….and also there would have to be multiple medically documented cases of people being hurt or worse, and even then only if they followed the diet correctly and it happened. Also, any self-thinking investigator who goes and looks at that LCF thread and the ducky board will be able to see it is a foaming irrational mob behind this.

I had someone saying she was eating 10-15 g of fat a day in the chat room and not losing weight. I of course told her to up that, and she was like “oooh”……there also was someone who had been silently sitting in the chat room for a long time last night…bracken666 i think it was, who thought they have had an account since june, had no posts listed in their profile. I decided to address them and say hello, and bam, they signed out. Others said he/she had been in there for hours without saying anything, so just seemed odd they ran when addressed…obviously was watching. Just little things and people like that to keep an eye out, sad we have to, but needed right now I guess.

Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) replied:

Thanks, Del, you’re better than the FBI.

Everything you outlined for an investigation is exactly right — but I wasn’t going to bore you with the details, LOL! I’m glad you understand and you see yourself that there’s nothing hokey going on: diet, food list, support groups and nobody being told to drink Drano or gulp laxatives.

I did get an email from the Woman’s World editor. Wanted to know if we were sending mailings to members encouraging laxative abuse. Had to set her straight on what’s happening. Ducky is running out of resources — and every morning we’re still here darn it!

BTW, this probably sounds like a bribe (hey, you can blog about it!) but I appreciate you looking out for Kimkins. I’ll remember that. I believe a gift between friends is non-taxable, yes? You’ll have something to look forward to at Christmas. (theTRUTH emphasis added)

“Firstly, those kind of investigations tend to start with an undercover preliminary peeksie.”

You know, there really IS a reson why it’s called “undercover”. lol…

Conspiracy occurs when there is the specific intent that a crime be performed; and there is an agreement with another person to engage in or cause that crime to be performed, and one of the conspirators commits an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy. At state and local levels, there are various degrees of conspiracy, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, depending upon the crime that is committed. Under U.S. federal law, conspiracy is a felony.

Excuse me, but how is a psychic worth $600 bucks an hour ($10 dollars A MINUTE). Teachers, nurses, plumbers, nutritionists, construction workers, dentists, etc –ie, real jobs—do not make this. Heck, my roofer didn’t make that and roofers are in big demand post hurricanes down here in Florida. Not even doctors make that, and maybe not lawyers (I haven’t hired any, so dunno).

But Singing”I’m just here to help people”Lass thinks it is right and just and fair to charge SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS AN HOUR for readings. Yeah, she’s in it for the empathic love…

Why are you doing this? Can’t you see Tippy Toes stands behind Heidi 100%. You see even if Heidi doesn’t have foster children it doesn’t matter to Tippy because she’s making money off of the suckers on the net. I have NO NO NO respect for Tippy and I think she should be in jail with Heidi. Here’s her post from LCF..tell me if this sounds like an innocent person…

“OK, just to answer the question, when we did the fund raiser we were a small group and we pledged a dollar per pound lost for a month. It was not a significant amount of money. We all understood the money would go to Kimmer to do as she saw fit and it was paid individually thru paypal. ”

How is that not a crime?

Is it possible that there is more than one scammer in this world?

More than one person who has no conscience?

More than one person who is engaged in mail fraud?

Is it possible that Jeannie “Tippytoes” Baitinger is quite happily enjoying her business relationship with Heidi “Kimmer” Diaz, and that their plans for fake fundraisers don’t cause EITHER of them to lose one moments’ sleep?

There have been comments, here and there, about “Poor Tippytoes!” Comments about how she’s been “used” by Kimmer. Comments about how Kimmer is “playing” her.

Like there couldn’t possibly be TWO scammers pulling the strings at Kimkins.com.

September 16, 2007 at 9:09 pm

I totally agree anon. There has to be. She has been on LCF today defending herself, but she has not answered any of the important questions. She hasn’t made any sense either. She’s been a right idiot. It’s sad really. She now deserves everything coming her way!!!!

September 16, 2007 at 10:31 pm

Watcher

I’ve been watching Tippy defend herself at LCF. She tries the diversionary tactic , but doesn’t pull it off. She has incriminated herself the same as Heidi by misquoting what she said, when the WRITTEN posts are in the Archives. Nor does she give a hoot for anybody joining the site because of her amazing 112 lb loss on Kimkins. However, Cuties called her on the fact that, other than one 30 day Challenge, Tippy has stuck to Kimkins at most for one solid week before rotating back to Atkins. So, although her weight loss is real, Tippy is perpetuating the “success” of Kimkins to lure in new subscribers. IOW, she’s joined the Fraud Squad!

On the side lines

Ducky, I did not know how to contact you so I will post this in the comments section. I don’t know if you approve comments before they go up if so You don’t have to post this but please look into this.

I have been watching this kimkins thing from the side lines and feel sorry for all those duped by this woman. At any rate I was over at KimKins and I wasw looking to see if she changed anything. Well down under terms and conditions I read this and I never rememeber reading this before.

http://www.kimkins.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=786&Itemid=39

“SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION FOR ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE IN AN APPROPRIATE STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES, STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND THE PARTIES UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. ”

Is this new as Ibelieve it is? And is she putting this here to try and scare people away from sueing her because they may have to travel to LA to sue her. And what is she afraid a jury trial will find her guilty.

Anyways I hope you or someone look into this.

————————–

Considering that no one can waive rights prior to potential invoking of rights, this is a moot inclusion in the Kimkins TOS.

September 17, 2007 at 12:24 pm

ban kimmer

Well it looks like Heidi has been doing her google research on how to deflect again. Hehe. Too bad she isn’t a lawyer and never played one on tv.

BTW You should bring the Tippy Toes post back up to the top so we can debate what a sleazeball she is again. She deserves to be in the hotseat as she refuses to answer any of the important questions on lcf. What a snake!

September 17, 2007 at 1:37 pm

Kim

I am going to chime in on the jurisdiction issue….Heidi is doing business in all 50 states as well as outside of the U.S. This automatically gives federal jurisdiction in all 50 states so she can be sued in any federal court in the country. It does not matter what she tries to put in her TOS the law is the law and contrary to what Heidi believes, she is not above it.

September 17, 2007 at 4:00 pm

too bad kimmer

I agree that Tippy’s pants are on fire.

September 17, 2007 at 4:12 pm

Down with Kimkins!

I would like to comment on something that Kimmer/Heidi/Kim Drake stated awhile ago. She claimed, as did an affliate, that Jesica Alba was on KimKins. Well……..my husband works in the movie biz and happened to work on a movie quite recently with JA and so I was curious as to what she ate so I asked DH to glance at what she took from Craft Foodservice. Craft FoodService is a caterring company that sets up a tent on site and serves a mass array of food buffet style. Cast and crew get served from one tent and extras go to another tent. He was part of the cast and crew. Lets just say that she IS. NOT. FOLLOWING. KIMKINS!!!

I know that this is an old point to debate but it has bothered me. Some young people are so impressionable and this just really ticked me off!

Getting to Know Tippy Toes

11 09 2007

One of the newest admins at Kimkins is Jeannie Baitinger, aka ‘Tippy Toes’ in the Kimkins forums and Low Carb Friends forums. For the purpose of keeping things simple here, we’ll refer to her as ‘Tippy’ throughout.

Tippy joined Low Carb Friends back in April 2004 when she started a low carbohydrate diet (Atkins) and weighed 263 pounds. Since that time she’s admittedly struggled to lose the weight desired and declared herself at goal on September 8, 2006 after losing 100 pounds. In the last year she’s maintained her weight between 150 and 155 pounds, alternating between Atkins and Kimkins. Why we make this an issue is that she recently wrote a positive 5 star review at the BBB for Kimkins, on September 7, 2007,

This is the BEST weight loss website I have been to yet! Thanks to Kimkins.com I have lost 112 lbs, have never been sick, got off blood pressure and cholesterol meds and I feel terrific! I have NEVER experienced anything but positive help from the site and I was NEVER told to use laxitives OR lower calories–ever.I cannot say enough good things about the website. I tried other weight loss plans and they did not work but that Kimkins sure did! And I have medical records and pictures to prove it. Just ask me for them.

Within the Low Carb Friends postings she’s made, it’s clear she did not follow Kimkins exclusively.
In fact, through her own posts at Low Carb Friends, we learn she lost 47 pounds following Atkins, stalled for six months, moved to South Beach, then Eat Fat Get Thin, then a Fruit Rotation regiment, then Kimkins, and then finally a rotation of Atkins and Kimkins.

Yet, in the above review she attributes her entire weight loss to Kimkins. This may well be because she was the featured weight loss success recently in the Kimkins newsletter (issue 20). In that feature she states she started with Atkins and then found Kimkins when her weight loss stalled, she was frustrated and “starving and felt terrible…I was desperate.” In that feature she also willingly states she alternates between Kimkins and Atkins. This fact is curious given Kimmer’s (Heidi Diaz) disdain for Atkins and its allowance for higher fat meats and dairy. When we review the situation, it is clearer why Kimmer is open to Tippy saying many of the things she does in her success story. Kimmer is losing staff left and right and needs to replace staffers fleeing her company and site. She knows one thing about Tippy, and that’s her long standing desire to be an Admin at Low Carb Friends, a position she is now more than willing to extend to Tippy now that she, Kimmer, is desperate.We recently learned that over the years Tippy has long desired a position of Admin at Low Carb Friends and has made this desire known to many close to her, including Kimmer prior to her departure from that forum.

Last year Tippy stirred up things on a weight loss challenge thread on Low Carb Friends by being very critical of the Low Carb Friends admins at the time. She made it known she believed she was qualified to be an Admin and when a position as one was not offered, she started passing along private information about the Low Carb Friends admins behind the scenes in emails and Private Messages in an attempt to turn them on each other. In those communications we are told she alluded to questionable behavior by the Low Carb Friends Admins at a pig roast in Tennessee she attended, allegations we will not detail here, but suffice to say included implications of inpropriety between Admins whom were not married to each other.

An attention junkie like Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) she spent months attempting to garner a position of Admin within Low Carb Friends to no avail, but her desire to be one continued.

As soon as Kimmer offered an Admin position to Tippy, she jumped at it and quickly told her friends, expressing her delight at the opportunity. We’re told she said she was thrilled by the “authority” Kimmer entrusted her with and also expressed a grand plan to completely revamp the Kimkins diet plans into something she believed would be healthier and much less objectionable to those concerned over the safety of the plans as currently written.

May we remind her she need only look as far as Becky to see such changes will not be tolerated by Kimmer. Read Becky’s Reasonable Appeal to make changes and Kimmer’s reply point by point.

What is more disturbing than her less than accurate BBB review however, is that she’s taken to doing Kimmer’s biding on Low Carb Friends. In a very recent post there, she laid the groundwork to instill doubts in the minds of those concerned about Kimkins and Kimmer by questioning not only the motivation of those engaging on the Facination thread, but also attempted to lay blame for the entire situation on one individual, former business partner Catherine (whose husband is releasing details of that partnership at Slamboard).

Her post, titled Are We Being Used, includes the following,

Just a thought. Notice the person who started this thread is a junior member (meaning newly registered) and does not continue to post? Notice so many junior members coming in now? It is easy to assume they are from Kimkins site BUT I wonder about the truth in that assumption for many reasons. One, I recall Catherine telling X LCF members how easily identity can change so they could come back without admins knowing it was them… Cutie–remember that? Two, I notice the junior members seem computer savvy enough to post info and pics I would not have a clue about myself… Now I am not saying every single junior member here is ficticious. But I think many may be. Tom, can you check out this possibility?Is it possible this whole thing has been created by the ex biz partner, who is clearly mad as heck? Also, keep in mind it is the same creator of slamboards and…perhaps Ducky? Oddly enough, Catherine admits it was her idea to start a website for Kimkins–not Kimmers. So I don’t think Kimmer spent countless hours here plotting but I think Catherine did. Also, Catherine just thought Kimkins was a wonderful plan and fully endorsed and followed it, according to her. Until the partnership disolved, that is. Now it can kill you…WTH?

And the Kimkins survivors blogs… Are they real? How do we know? And the 14 year old–was that real?
The threats to anyone who is a moderator for her site–threats of fraud and lawsuits… A bully tactic for sure to intimidate them into walking out. The claims of KimATC being 50 lbs over weight…How rude was that, asking her how that Kimkins diet was working out? In fact, that statement points that Kimkins doesn’t work and we have established it does. We all have weight problems which is why we diet. The pressure is on–but by whom? The reasons seem pretty obvious.

Don’t get me wrong. I KNOW there are some of those people here in a genuine manner. I know a couple of you from her site and I know you had concerns (even if you are ALL at goal now thanks to her diet). I do not agree with cutting calories further in the event of a stall either. But perhaps Kimmer was in the learning process herself and it was a bad decision, or mistake. And maybe Kimmer did gain weight back and won’t tell. Take a good look around this site. How many people have gained their weight back and refuse to remove the skinny avitor pics and change stats accordingly? I think many of us are guilty for that.

Are we all puppets on a string being manipulated by a raging X partner?

We know in the past Kimmer has taken to manipulating situations to motivate individuals to do things they might not do on their own. An example of such behaviour in the past is the January 2007 blog by Jimmy Moore, where he attacked Low Carb Friends and did so in a scathing and vicious manner. He’s since retracted that post, but our memory is long here and we’ve been told that Kimmer’s input was indeed the impetus for that post.

It’s interesting that many of the points Tippy brought to her post at Low Carb Friends are now the same points Kimmer is trying deperately to convince her members of within the Kimkins forums. It appears much of Tippy’s post contents were scripted by Kimmer. Tippy seems unaware of the manipulative instincts of Kimmer and may not realize how she too is now being used by her as a means to an end.We ask this, Tippy how could you associate yourself with Kimmer given all the facts now in the public view?

EDITED TO ADD
We’d like to remind readers that this is the same Tippy Toes who organized the fundraiser for Kimmer’s (Heidi Diaz) phantom foster children last summer. Tippy accepted the position of Admin after revelation of the fact Heidi Diaz has no foster children and has not had foster children in her care since at least 2000.





Heidi Diaz Bald?

5 09 2007

Slamboard reported their private investigator told them of observing Heidi Diaz through a window while she was at her computer, and she was sans wig.

She’s BALD!

Oh, Ducky does hope the PI took a picture!

The PI also confirmed that only two people live in the home, Heidi Diaz and her son Brandon.  No foster children.





The Foster Care Kids Challenge, July 2006

5 09 2007

Kimkins Dangers was the first to report that Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) is no longer a CASA, and posted that the Site Manager of the Riverside Satellite for CASA, Barbara Hofman was interested in information about monies collected by Heidi Diaz for her purported foster kids.

The contact information provided was:

Within her Kimkins forums, a challenge was initiated in June to raise money for ‘her kids’ who were supposedly aging out of the foster care system. The challenge was first started by Tippy Toes (an admin now) the following posted to lure members to commit to $1 per pound lost between July 1 and August 1, 2006,

Subject: How about a weight loss challenge to benefit Kimmer’s foster kids?
Author: Tippy Toes (edited to remove “admin” status as it has come to our attention that status is recent)

For those who don’t know this: 100% of Kimmers proceeds are going to help foster kids who turn 18 to get set up with housing, utilities, etc…

So here is my challenge:

Starting July 1st until August 1
Pick any of Kimmers plans you want or whatever works best for you.

Let’s post our start weight. For each pound we lose, plan to donate one dollar for Kimmer’s kids. (Example: If you lost 14 lbs, you owe $14.00.) I’ll get help from the webmaster to set us up with a paypal account at the end.

It’s for a good cause and getting us thinner doing it is almost as good too!

So…who’s in?

Now, not only did members pay to be in the forum, they were being solicited for more money for Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) and it’s clearly suggested that any money sent from the challenge will go for ‘her kids’.

The most important thing here, did Kimmer have foster kids in her care?

It’s been reported that Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) has made statements online to the effect that she was no longer a foster parent when she created a profile at a dating site, which was reported by Slamboard. Based on the information posted at the dating site, the profile was created in 2005 or at the latest, early 2006 (her son’s age was listed as 16, he just recently turned 18).

So, the question begs, did Kimmer knowingly allow collection of funds and then accept them? Based on her response in that thread, it appears she willing accepted that money was going to be collected for ‘her kids’ who may indeed have been phantoms of her imagination!

Author: Kimmer (Admin)

You know, it’s hard to type with tears in your eyes. How unbelievably generous you guys are!

I wasn’t going to say anything to anybody when the site started. It’s so tacky to talk about money, but I’m not above “tacky-osity” so …

For many years at LCF people asked me about starting my own site or writing a book, but I have a huge problem with making money.

It’s not the making money, per se, because I insist on top dollar when I’m working at a job. If I find out somebody else is making 10 cents an hour more than me for the same job, the whole office is going to hear about it!

I’ve always been weird about money. I almost have an aversion to it. This would explain why I’m not rich.

In my experience, I’ve seen people willing to do extreme or illegal things for money (cousin is a prostitute) and people who think cash buys anything. What even comes to mind are men who invite me to dinner and expect me to sleep with them because they bought me the #2 special at El Tio Pepe. Now, I don’t know what the going rate is for hookers, but I’m guessing it’s more than $8.99 plus tax and tip.

My problem is accepting something in return for helping people. I’ve always been that way. I’ve raised my sons with the same belief … you don’t take money for doing the right thing.

I volunteer with poor people in a local homeless shelter. I write & type their resumes, practice interviews and job applications and wrangle interview clothes to help get them on their feet. I babysit their kids for free. I’ve even bought monthly bus passes for those who do get a job. I’m a volunteer for the literacy program at the library and teach immigrants to read and write. But I’m OK with all of that because I don’t take money for doing it.

What is it with me and money?

As you all know I’m a foster mom. I only take teenage boys, usually 15-18, which is close my own son, 17. They would love for me to take teenage girls, but my heart isn’t strong enough for that stress, LOL … and I’d need a Rottweiler standing guard outside the girls’ room at night!

The boys have to leave when they’re 18. Imagine being a typical 18 year old, making minimum wage at Taco Bell (part time yet!) and having to come up with the stuff you need when you’re starting out. I live in a suburb of Los Angeles and there’s a huge foster population (sometimes it’s the kid, but usually it’s the parent that has the problem).

There are “some” county funds, but not enough for every kid. A few kids come to me just months before they’re forced to emancipate. If you can imagine how slow government works, that’s barely enough time to process the paperwork that they’re in the system, never mind getting $$ together for them to leave.

I couldn’t take money from this site or the book for myself. I just couldn’t, it’s my weird thing. But, if it would let me help my boys with move-in expenses for an apartment, get the electricity turned on, buy a small microwave, a bus pass or a set of towels. Now that’s appealing.

So, apparently I don’t have a problem making money from helping people if I use the money to help others. Bless you all.

Now consider just how devious such a post is, if in fact, Kimmer no longer had foster children in her care! If you, or someone you know, participated in the above challenge and eventually sent Kimmer money, please take a moment to contact Barbara Hofman at the above address and/or phone number.

“Phantoms of her imagination”….that’s exactly what it is, she doesn’t have foster kids anymore and still plays like she does. I really wish people would see all the lies and get it, this woman is a total fraud! But no, they still cling to her, still desperate to believe the lies.

Ducky, I don’t remember Tippy ever being an admin at Kimmers site. But she did indeed start the challenge.

———————-

We have text copies and screenshots of the original posts made on the thread, and next to Tippy Toes name is the designation “Admin”. Perhaps she is no longer an admin, but it appears at the time she had that responsibility.

For anyone wondering, we edited the above post to limit ability of those within Kimkins to identify its author, but wanted to leave the question of whether Tippy Toes was admin status at the time of the thread.

INCREDIBLE considering that she, at that time, is known to have been collecting social security disability (and most likely still is!)

Aversion to money, OH PLEASE. What a hoot. That woman really has no morals.

We have contacted many authorities in CA and have NOT been able to verify that Heidi has had any foster children – at least since 2004. The State of CA Foster Parent Ombudsman office says that anyone found medically disabled and collecting social security disability would be immediately disqualified from the foster parent program.

So she’s either lying about SSI or lying about foster children or both! Who can tell anymore with this nutter!

But please, to reiterate what Ducky has said, PLEASE contact Barbara Hofman if you have any more information about the fundraisers for the “foster children”.

Oh my goodness – I never saw that post from Kimmer before. That is just horrible. How could anyone accept the money knowing full well they are deceiving all the generous members. I think it is deplorable! There is a place for people like that. Maybe she feels she didn’t commit fraud because she didn’t ask for the donations in the first place. Thank goodness I didn’t donate. She is pathetic to say the least.

September 5, 2007 at 3:54 pm

Watcher

W/o standing up for Heidi in the slightest, I can see that it was possible for the Kid Challenge to come at the end of her fostering (whether or not Kimmer knew it was the end), and accepting the 1-month’s collection for her most recent fosterlings or her favorites. Moreover, she didn’t initiate it. So fraud would be difficult to prove when voluntary donations are offered. Sort of like Manna from heaven, as the saying goes. She admits to being tacky, and I agree. But tacky isn’t illegal, as far as I know.

—————-

From the information we have seen, it is unlikely she was still a foster parent at the time of the challenge. Even if she was, the foster care program has specific guidelines about money, even donations, for a foster child. If she collected monies, without having any foster children in her care, that is fraud. If she collected monies while a child was in her care, she had specific reporting guidelines to follow, that if she did not, is also fraud. As Kimkins Dangers pointed out, Barbara Hofman wants to know who sent her money and who cashed the checks. We doubt the state CASA agency would be interested in this if they did not believe something was not right.

I too have an aversion to money. Which is why I will now STOP giving free advice on dieting and begin to charge $60 for it. I will also call it Concernedkins or Concerned watchers, or Concernedmans. But I assure you it is not for the money. It’s simply for the “Joy” of helping those less fortunate. ((((pats halo))))

I never believed it, when this, and other ‘fund raisers’ were organized.

Each time, they were made a ’sticky’ at the top of each and every forum.. By or at least with, permission of Heidi. Turned my stomach every time I had to see them.

September 5, 2007 at 4:19 pm

Kim

As a current CASA who does work with foster kids and the family courts, this absolutely turns my stomach! I have had cases with kids in foster homes that are wonderful but then I’ve seen some homes that aren’t the best, but this takes it to a whole different level. I’m hope some people come forward who participated in this and she gets what she deserves.

Ducky, here is Barbara’s email address at work — it’s publicly posted on the internet, so I’m going to assume it’s okay.

Wow… thanks for posting this information.

It’s Kimmer’s version of the “Big Lie” (according to wikipedia, the Big Lie is a propaganda technique in which the lie is so complex that the public will either dismiss it as impossible or choose not to believe it out of willful ignorance).

I remember around Christmas there was some jewlery sale to benefit “her kids”…..it should be in the newsletter since she promoted it heavily at the time herself!

There’s a warning in the Bible to the people of God who chose to follow their own way rather than God’s: (you can) be sure your sin will find you out!

I used to admire Kimmer when she first showed up at LCF but all I’m feeling lately is absolute disgust. What a shame.

September 5, 2007 at 4:52 pm

Thank you Patty. This and other fund raisers definitely should be reported to Barbara Hofman at the CASA office

A poster on ALC spoke with CA Children’s Services who verified that Heidi Diaz has not been paid a foster parent stipend for at least the last 7 years.

No stipend means no foster children…….

I’d hope that the Kimkins members defending her, even after the release of the pictures will finally see the light.

Lying about losing weight is one thing. Lying about foster children and accepting money on their behalf when THEY DON’T EXIST is another thing entirely.

Actually…

Tippy was not an admin at THAT time. She just became one in the last week. Her profile was just updated with that title so that why it’s showing up in your recently retrieved screenshots.

Last summer, at the time of the challenge–there were no admins other than Kimmer and Catherine. Becky was added later, close to December and then after her no new ones were added until the explosion of growth with the WW mag release.

Tippy Toes was not an administrator at the time of the fund raiser (July last year) but she is now. I believe she was appointed shortly after the others that were officially named in a post by Christin a few days ago.

finleysmom

I guess I am all confused….She never made any money while giving free advice (weather healthy or not) on LCF and spent LOTS of time emailing and helping others. SHE was approached to start kimkins.com. She didn’t start it herself. She spent years not making a CENT off helping others. Plus, the amount of knowledge about how the diet works is amazing. She must have lost the weight at one point… I agree that something is not right here. Anyone have any thoughts?
