Is that right? Nice try though

The games the trolls play are amusing and pointless. This must have been one of her few lucid moments. Keep in mind I don’t even know who this lady is. And I don’t know what she’s talking about. Creepy.


Subject: Don’t know how to say this
From: Yvette Moreau <>

Dear Sam,

I don’t know how to say this but the tides are changing in my mind. I have
been one of the biggest trolls concerning you and Meri. I got sucked in to
a FB group called Sister Wives and other Lies.  I was befriended by Elisa
Furr. I joined twitter to follow the trail of breadcrumbs that the trolls
were dropping. I alienated Kendra who had always been nice to me.

I jumped on in on the investigation. I read Nick O’Conner’ blog. I heard
from 2 ladies that said Jackie Overton catfished them as you. Although they
said you went by a different name back then. I swallowed it hook line and
sinker. But for the past few days I have been trying to analyze why.

What is in me that would join in with a bunch of negative women? Why did I
allow myself to believe things and stories that were told to me but not
really proven? Why is this bothering me now? Am I the kind of person that
normally acts this way? I can answer that question. No. I have never been
involved with anything like this in my life. I don’t feel good about it. I
can’t take any of it back. I truly believe you were a woman named Jackie
pretending to be both Lindsey and Sam. I mean, I believed it! I can’t say
that now.

And if I can’t say that now, what is left to say? I’m ashamed of myself?
Yes. That’s the only honest answer. How do I go back and do it over and not
get involved? I can’t!  That fact fills me with regret. Knowing that I
caused anyone pain gnaws at me. My conscience is screaming at me.

The only thing I can do is delete my twitter. What does God say? If your
eye causes you to sin, cast it out. Twitter is my eye in this case.

I’m sorry. Two little words are not enough to take anything back. But they
are all I’ve got to work with. I’m truly sorry. This is my real name. I am
married, I have 4 grown kids and 4 grandkids. I took care of my dying mom
for 15 months before she passed on July 16th. Maybe this crazy thing
allowed me to escape the brutal pain of watching her die from cancer? I was
escaping my own life by being a party to making yours miserable. No excuse
but as I examine myself, I believe this whole story was like a drug that I
could escape with. I would go to my mom’s house on Friday, take her to
chemo and then spend the weekend with her and take care of her. For 15
months I did this. While she slept,  I escaped to the internet. The story
of you and Meri was a great way to lose myself.

Then it was over.  Mom died. I was pissed.  I was grieving. My weekends
were so empty without her. Getting back into my old routine with my family
was difficult. My husband kept saying, “you’re here but you are not
present”! And I wasn’t.  I was on FB or Twitter. I was on my “drug”.
Numbing my feelings and not thinking about anyone elses.

I’m not numb anymore. I feel like myself again. My brain returned to my
body and the light went off. “What the hell are you doing”? That was the
first question that came to me when I could see and think clearly again.

So with that revelation. I decided to email you this one time before I
delete my troll acct on twitter. Ofcourse we all have 2. One is real with
my real name Yvette. The troll account is Jenny Swift. I’m getting rid of
her and the troll that she has become. My apology may very well be way too
late but I wanted to make it before I leave.

I hope you are okay. I believe you. It took me a good long time to get
there but I really do. I know I have no right to ask anything of you and
Lindsey most likely screens your emails but she does scare the crap out of
me. I am praying that she doesn’t hack me after I gave you all my real
details. If it happens I guess I would deserve it. I don’t know how to end
this. Another apology would be overkill. So I will just do this.


Yvette Moreau


And then this. You have to scroll to the bottom and read from there on up. Again I don’t know her. I blocked her months ago on twitter and that’s the only interaction I’ve had with her. Lindsay said from her postings on facebook she’s really mentally struggling with her life and her youtube video proves it. It’s sad. I will pray for both of these ladies. And also pray they finally leave me alone. Stalking me for the past 6 months is not cool. The police will make a police report of this. I can get a copy of it, send it to my lawyer then the lawyer uses it to contact Twitter and Facebook to get their accounts reviewed. Hopefully deleted. The police won’t do more than make a report of it and I don’t expect them to. I just need that paper to move forward with other actions to help myself stop people that cross the line like this last lady. Using a military person’s id and photos to try to trick me into what? That’s disgusting.

Grow up ladies.

To: Samuel Cooper <>

I didn’t hear from you today. I figured you were busy.  That’s okay. The
number is still good.

Jackie, I need to be honest with you. I tried to catfish you, but I
couldn’t go through with it. I can’t do it.  I got sick to my stomach just
thinking about it.

I, unlike all the other trolls via Twitter, have a conscience. From one
Christian Woman to another, shut down the blogs, Twitter and any other
social media.  Do this for you, not for anyone else.

I’m sorry I lied to you. My intention was to expose you.  What I realized
is you would never admit any wrong doing. I sense you have a temper, but
that you do try to stay positive.

Jackie, God loves you so much. He sent His Son for our sins.  You’re worth
so much more than what you’re doing.  I’m sure you are a good person, but
please stop lying. Realise it’s not favorable.  It can only do harm to
you.  You’re worth so much more.

Gif has so much for you! Please repent and stop the madness.  Its so hard
to admit when we’re wrong.  However, Its so liberating. It must hurt you to
see all the mean things that are said about you on Twitter.  Don’t look at
it.  You deserve more. Somethign better. You deserve to be loved and
appreciated. By doing this, you are stuck. In bondage, if you will.  Do
this for you.  Ask God to guide you.

I pray you’ll do the right thing.


A silent friend

PS The number is still good if you want to talk or pray. I’ll be honest
with you.  I’ll pray for you and with you, and I won’t be mean, turn on you
or expose you.  You deserve a good friend.

And my response 😉

I’m not Jackie. My name is Samuel. It took Lindsay about 2 seconds to figure out you were full of shit in the first email. She was tracking down your real identity as I short answered you giving her time and additional IP address info. Once she figured it out and told me, I sent the info to your local police. I don’t need to call a free google voice phone number in Los Angeles when you live in Atlanta. Unless you are 41 there’s no way you could have been a PA for 9 years as undergrad and med school would have chewed up 8 years of your 20s. Adding your parents were dead and you have a younger brother, all of it was transparent.

It doesn’t bother me at all you were trying to trick me you aren’t the first. I’m smarter than that. Well actually Lindsay is. I just thought you were suspicious enough to forward your emails to her to look into it.

I’m not going to contact you. Because you are already too f***ed in the head for me to be around. I will pray for you though. I prayed for you months ago when I first blocked you. God will handle this one. He already did urging you to fess up. Have fun playing games with someone else. Axl Rose sucks. He’s such an a-hole because every business deal he has been screwed over time and time again. He’s squeaking by doing what he loves and it pisses him off he can’t score a big fat stack of money like when he was younger. But all his anger just fuels his singing reputation. His voice is an old worn out tire. I can’t believe you are still a fan of his. But I guess we all still hold on to the past in someways.
Best of luck to you sweetheart. You’re going to need it.

  1. Some people are crazy! Stumbled across you today and you have me hooked. Hope they can deliver the book to the UK! 🙂

  2. This is beyond cuckoo crazy! Guess you can safely say that batman is building his armor from the loony birds out there! Love reading your blog but can’t imagine someone trying to pull you in to then watch you fall! How do these ppl have lives ? I’d rather hike in big sur or learn a new hobby – sorry sam that because you fell in love and are defending it so many want to bring you down! Stay strong and god bless you!

  3. You’re lovely and I love your writing. Sorry this all happened to you, but you’re clearly rising above! Cheers xo

  4. Wow that’s insane! Sounded like a desperate school girl. Hope all is good in ur neck of the woods Sam! Don’t comment much but do read ur blog. Hey are u going to sell ur book in Idaho? Don’t order online so was wondering what stores u are selling them at. Please let me know thanks. Have a great night.

  5. Oh wow, I remember seeing Yvette Moreau on another FB page of an entirely different subject. She was working the troll thing pretty hard there too.

  6. OMG! Wtf is wrong with these people? Your life and situation has been made so public and you, Sam, are handling it like a pro. Why are people so vested in hurting you? I’m outraged! Where’s the decency? 😡

  7. This is the interesting kind of stuff that makes me constantly come back and read your blog. There is SO much going on in your life….it’s like a soap opera 🙂
