Counterfeit Laundering – Safe Deposit Box Substitution Gambit . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear ones, there is an edited Summary after the video …



Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I thought I would tell you about a scary astral story that went by the window of my imagination some years ago. I was vacationing, and not here in Los Angeles. I had a funny feeling that something awful might happen … like a premonition of disaster … but I did not know what.

I figured it was not really going to happen, but to be on the safe side, it might be good to put some money in a safe deposit box. I found out since then that putting money in a safe deposit box is a very bad idea; it is not a very safe thing to do.

But back then I thought, you know: I will put a little money into a safe deposit box, and leave it there in case the worst happens; and at least I will have a little cash.

Quite some amount of time went by. I was getting near the end of my vacation; and I had an astral dream. I dreamt that a police officer who was crooked wanted to send me to jail for potentially interfering with a drug operation in that town.

I do not know that there are drug operations in that town; in fact, I do not think there are. Maybe it was in a different town, and I just received the dream about it, but it was happening elsewhere. That is frequently the case.

But so anyway, the dream kind of terrified me, because in the dream, this police officer went to my bank … you know, dreams often convert the national news to a person’s own sphere of endeavors  … and took the money out of my safe deposit box, and substituted marked counterfeit bills.

And so I had had another premonition. So I went back to the bank, and took the money out of the safe deposit box, and gave it back to the bank just there and then. So the money never left the bank, and they credited it to my account.

So if the money was counterfeit … it seems unlikely; I was probably pegging on somebody else’s scary astral story … But let’s say the money was counterfeited, then I guess the bank bore the brunt of it.

I do not know what a bank would do, in a situation like that. That would be a tough one, because it would be stuck with however much in counterfeit bills that were basically the responsibility of a police officer who was laundering counterfeit money for the drug operation that he was supposed to be preventing there in that town.

Apocryphal though this story may be, I feel we should look out for situations like that all across America, as times are tough, and people are resorting to all kinds of things to make ends meet. That is my thought.

The takeaway is: Let the banks be careful as to what is happening. Maybe they could develop guidelines prior to something like that happening, to make sure that they do not get stuck holding the bag.

All right, you all, I know this is a weird one. You all take care, and welcome to February 2020. It is looking to be a really wonderful year in terms of Soul clearing.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

    • Sidebar: Durango Shakedown Attempt: The Long and the Short of It

Dear Ones,


In September 2019 I wrote a poem called “Ice” …

Link: “Ice,” a poem by Alice B. Clagett, written on 19 September 2019; published on 21 September 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-eio ..

The occasion was what I intuited to be a ‘deep freeze’ and ‘slam down’ attempt on my life and property. That confidence game is described here …

Link: “Confidence Games: The ‘Deep Freeze’ and the ‘Slam Down’,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 28 January 2020; published on 4 August 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-jqB ..


Just afterward, on the psychic plane I logged onto a ‘Reuben Frost’ stock laundering scheme in which a number of shady stock brokers nationwide apparently used the name of one broker, since apparently retired, in New York State.

The hunch I logged onto was that these bogus stock brokers, using the name of a retired broker still listed with one of the most prestigious stock brokers in America, were in cahoots with the ‘Slam Down’ con artists, and would transfer the murdered person’s assets out of their brokerage account as soon as the deed was done.

For all I knew, it could be that the con artists themselves posed as the named, retired stock broker, and might sweep the account into their own at the moment of the murder.

This seemed on the far fringe of the possible to me, but just in case, it seemed right to move what meagre holdings I had to another stock brokerage right away. I felt all the more urgency about this because I realized I had gotten the referral to my stock broker from a West Los Angeles friend of the three people I felt had been involved in the ‘slam down’ attempt.

If you would like to know more about the MOs described in the Reuben Frost murder mystery series, you may find used books from the series online at Amazon.com. On delving around I found that the name of the series’ author Haughton Murphy was a pen name for a well known stock broker who, as I recall, was also a lawyer. No doubt his years of experience in stocks lent an air of authority to the murder mystery series.


The putative ‘slam down’ attempt took place in Durango, Colorado in the autumn of 2015. The boldfaced nature of this hair-raising attempt on my life by three people well respected in that Wild West town left me no choice but to flee for my life, with several mean-eyed men … as it seemed through intuition … in hot pursuit.

Sidebar: Durango Shakedown Attempt: The Long and the Short of It

That no violence to my person took place in Durango had its good and bad side. The good is that I was not murdered. Through intuition I was ‘one step ahead’ and slipped away just in the nick of time.

The bad is that, for the same reason, I have no proof of a murder attempt long and craftily planned by folks well schooled in that heinous art. Without proof, how can I find legal solace? How can I return to that lovely town? I feel in my heart a well-laid plan has for years been set in place in the event of my return, and would unfold the minute I set foot there.

For the good of the people of Durango, there might, in a way, be recourse. I have a hunch that murder of woman tourists may be occurring in Durango or in nearby Four Corners towns every year, just after the autumn deer hunting season closes.

If the hunch pans out, it might be possible to discover and apprehend the perpetrators when the next murder occurs. That would make the news, and it would make a town safer for tourists, and improve the income brought in through the tourist trade.



What happened next was the Tour of the Southwest described here …

Link: “Compendium: Tour of the Southwest during January 2016 ,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 19 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ie1 ..

Then after that was the break-in to my house in Los Angeles, because of which I aborted the tour and returned to Los Angeles. After that were the break-in to my car trunk while I was hiking and the theft of my spare keys from my Los Angeles storage shed (and their replacement several days later).

As you can imagine, strangers must have been walking into my home when I went to the grocery store during the year 2016. Things would disappear from my home, with no sign of forced entry, while I was out.

When I told the Los Angeles police about the break-ins and the disappearing items in my home, they called the thefts the ‘perfect crime’. They explained ‘the mob’ works like that. That meant I had to make my home as secure as possible, and that I had to watch out for myself wherever I went, for about four years, out of concern for strong-arm interlopers.


Through dint of long effort, I was able to make my home, my post office box, and my person more secure. I could not get my car key replace, and odd things were happening to my car during my senior fitness classes at 24-Hour Fitness in Fallbrook Mall: I would get in the car after class and the car would not start.

That happened again and again; I began to think someone might have got hold of a spare key from the set of keys that had been lifted, and might be opening my car door while I was in class, and that might somehow be the cause of the ignition failure. That was all my mechanic and I could come up with, although we tried an ingenious mechanical fix or two.

Of equal concern was this: In my senior fitness class at the Mall, I kept ‘crossing swords’ with an apparent accomplice of ‘the mob’, a woman friend of the masseuse described in the “Ice” poem, who had the chutzpah to sign on as senior fitness instructor at 24-Hour Fitness in Fallbrook Mall. Then another woman instructor, of similar personality, showed up there. I did a drawing of the second woman here …

Link: “ADULTS ONLY  (PG-13) Kali,” a story by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 21 August 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dZZ ..

There was quite a commotion at that senior fitness center; eventually I decided to quit the class so as to get round it.

In retrospect, the four years 2016-2020 were a hard slog. For the nonce, though, what with the COVID lockdown, all is quiet in the City of the Angels, by God’s good grace.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Con Operations with a Facelift . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,


Here’s a ‘just suppose’ about con artists in America today. Let’s say, the imprisonment of crime boss Lucky Luciano (1) in the 1900s led criminals in America to undertake a ‘facelift’ … so that they would fit in better with mainstream America.

And, just supposing, this facelift was highly successful, to the point where, today, you can’t tell a mafia person from your next door neighbor.


OK, now … apparently, a couple of things that crime families (2) in America do … judging from the CIA Factbook (3) is distribution of illegal drugs and money laundering.


The lead-in to a con is called the ‘bait and switch’ … some of the techniques are ‘the cull’, ‘nuzzle and muzzle’, or ‘woo and sue’, or ‘off the mark’. Here are a few scenarios:

There iss a con group that engages in group sex with the boss. Everyone in the operation, whether man or woman, woos the boss.


When a mark or ‘pigeon’ is pegged, the boss, not knowing their sexual orientation, assigns one man and one woman, separately, to try and bait the mark into a sexual liaison. If the liaison is successful, then the ‘bait’ has been taken.

The ‘switch’ is to implicate the mark or ‘pigeon’ in an illicit activity.


If this cannot be accomplished, then lies and innuendo are used to ‘cull’ the mark from friends and relatives. These lies might work both ways: The con group might lie to friends and relatives about the mark. Or it might lie to the mark about friends and relatives.

Computer Cloning, Email Hacking, Identity Theft

Other ways of pursuing the ‘cull’ are cloning the computers, hacking the emails, and stealing the identities of marks or patsies.

Interception of the Public Mails

In recent times, the con operation with a facelift might place a ringer or faker as a mailperson in a post office, or private postal center … such as those in Office Depot, the UPS and Fedex shipment centers, private mailbox locations … and so on. 

In the modern con operation, there might be a ringer in every major mail or shipment center in a town. The ringer would be a member of the con operation who poses as an honest employees for the purpose of intercepting, removing, copying, altering, or delaying the mail of a mark, a law enforcement officer, a lawyer or judge, a town official, and so on, so as to further the scam then in progress.

I feel these postal ringers might also be placed by con operations so as to ship illicit items … such as drugs, poisons, weapons, body parts, even dead bodies … through the U.S. mails.

A weird notion, but one that I feel would be worthwhile looking into, so as to determine whether or not it might have some truth to it.


The con op brings law enforcement, lawyers and judges into its group sex activities. This is the ‘nuzzle’.

Law Enforcement

They may pose as a bordello or house of ill repute for law enforcement, but in fact be simply using this ‘cover’ as a con. Their real work might be drug distribution, money laundering, and so on. Their intent, her is to ‘nuzzle’ law enforcement so as to ‘muzzle them’ … to prevent them from interfering with the real work of the con group.

Lawyers and Judges

For lawyers and judges, they may pose as a wild and happy free sex club. In rural areas of the United States, where Christianity is a stronghold, knowledge of this sexual license might ostracize lawyers and judges from polite society; it might imperil their jobs and their status in the community. Thus, the nuzzling of lawyers and judges is for the purpose of blackmail during possible future legal proceedings.

Other Ways of ‘Muzzling’ Law Enforcement, Lawyers and Judges

There are other ways of muzzling law enforcement, lawyers and judges:

  • The wife of a law enforcement officer, lawyer or judge may be introduced to drugs or romanced by a member of the con operation, thus compromising her husband.
  • A child may be stolen, and its mother killed, and the child purported by a female member of the group to be the offspring of a law enforcement officer, lawyer or judge.


One member of the con group may woo the fall guy or mark, and then sue for alimony, or for hush money.

Or the group may lie in concert to the effect that one of their members has had a sexual relationship with the fall guy or mark, with the intention of gaining an alimony or hush money suit.


Or the fall guy or mark may be murdered, and the group may devise fraudulent marriage papers, intended to entitle a member of the group to the dead mark’s monies or property.

Social Services

To take advantage of Social Services, the con group can lie as one, indicating that the mark or patsy… who is often a single, wealthy woman … is a mentally ill, penniless sex worker, and needs to be locked up.

The con group will have members who are masseuses and nurses, whether male or female. These can gain access to hospitals and mental institutions, for the purpose of drugging or murdering a patsy.


For each person targeted by the new Con Op with a Facelift, the group will appear to be something other than what it truly is. This is based on each person’s window on reality … and especially, their interactions with the con group. For instance:

  • The mark may feel this is a chance to get ‘in with the in crowd’ … to be popular, or admired, or accepted by a group of people who appear to be enthusiastically accepting of him or her. Too late finding out their true purpose …
  • A law enforcement officer might think they are a rough sex bordello … No harm done. Simply consensual sex among adults. Sex of the sort that can’t be obtained at home.
  • A lawyer or judge might think they have joined a wild an crazy sex club: Sin with no price tag. Just for fun.
  • A Social Services person may feel it’s doing what is right for the mark that he or she incarcerates. Just the right thing for the poor, hapless individual … who is ‘not our sort of people’. Not one of us. A criminal sort who lives a life unto herself or himself. Not realizing that the criminals are, in fact, those who petition for the mark’s incarceration.


When people say that they are ‘above right and wrong’ or that ‘right and wrong have no meaning for them’ … What does that mean?

Thuggees: Whether Roaming or at Home?

Does it mean that they are enlightened? Or does it mean that they are the modern version of thuggees (4)?

  • Instead of travelling around, looking for travellers to murder and rob, like the thuggee cults of India,
  • might they be a new version of thuggees who lure marks and patsies to their locale, murder and fleece them, and lie in unison about their goings on?

A Caveat for the Law-Abiding

I feel that we all … we normal, law-abiding folks in America … need to be up to snuff and savvy about these sorts of goings on, so that we can protect ourselves and our loved ones from these very sophisticated shenanigans.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
