The Justice Reporter of the Whitehorse Daily Star Justine Davidson has published a news story about Wade Thompson's arrest titled 'Media alert helped round up suspect'. I bet Wade's face was "wearing the green" when the Whitehorse Mounties got their "snake", I mean man. :-) This blog, and some of the comments made on it, are quoted in the story. It is possible to submit comments to the online version of the article so I would encourage Wade's victims to do so. You can also write a good old-fashioned letter to the editor and send it by email to -
Here is the comment that I just submitted to Justine Davidson's story about Wade Thompson's arrest on St. Patrick's Day -
Thank you for mentioning my 'Who is Wade Thompson Scamming Now?' in this news report on the St. Patrick's Day arrest of Wade Thompson aka Glen Thompson on fraud charges. Not only did the Mounties get their man, as they reputedly always do. . . but some might say they even took care of a "snake" on St. Patrick's Day. :-)
It seems that the photograph of Wade Thompson that I posted to the blog on March 4th (after it was kindly supplied to me by one of Wade's victims) may have been helpful to the RCMP. My web stats show that someone from the RCMP downloaded the photo from the WIWTSN? blog on Monday March 15th. Maybe other blogs can help to catch criminals in a similar manner.
I have made a link to the Yukon Justice Department's Victim Impact Statement form on the WIWTSN? blog so that Wade Thompson's victims may use it if they choose to. If the Whitehorse Daily Star could publish the URL of that form and the address to which any Victim Impact Statements should be sent to that would be a public service to people across Canada, and indeed across the Atlantic Ocean judging from my web stats. . . It seems that Wade Thompson "worked" the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and scammed some people from Europe.
Here is the URL for the form -
Now all victims need to know is where to send it to. I am confident that there a number of victims who have a thing or two to say about Wade Thompson.
Wade really is a piece of work judging from what I saw of him. He apparently scammed his own mother while in Montreal and I personally witnessed the aftermath of him scamming a group teenage girls staying in a Montreal youth hostel out of about $50 for "taxi fare" about an hour or two after I had given him $60 for "taxi fare".
It occurs to me now that Wade Thompson isn't scamming anyone at the moment, unless of course he is trying his luck at scamming the Whitehorse RCMP detachment. . .
