AMAZING TRUE STORY! A MUST READ! THE NEXT OSCAR WINNING MOVIE!
Celebrities, Drugs and Murder:
Title: Beverly Hills Youth: from Riches to Rags to Riches
This NEW RELEASE is Now available at:
But the story gets better. I stumbled upon the website for Back 2 Life Ministries, which is owned by the same Chris Kehoe and his wife. Despite the fact that two press releases for the book describe Chris as a "local thug", the couple seem like a normal American Christian fundamentalist family, from their six children to their reactionary views on homosexuality (including the choice quote "They are not born that way, just as murderers are not born that way."), music (proving for once and for all that fundamentalists have bad taste), and witchcraft:
If you have ever dabbled with or practiced any type of witchcraft (black magic, spells, curses, Ouija boards, packs with the devil (demons), etc.) Just know that through the Blood of Jesus (and only the Blood of Jesus) can break every curse and or stronghold.
The BeverlyHillsYouth and Back 2 Life websites are all hosted by One Way Web Stop (OWWS), which does not seem to have a Terms of Service statment anywhere on their website, which suggests that they are either not serious about ensuring that their clients keep to acceptable standards of Internet behavior. Also, the Better Business Bureau reports that the owner of OWWS is one Robert Kehoe.
They do have a "Promote Your Website" section, which includes "email marketing thousands of opt-in email subscribers all over the internet." Also of technical interest is their "Website Locker" feature, which they promise will " Encrypt your website's source code, protect your pictures, disable print and print screen. Totally protect your site from hackers, and stealers..." However, the Website Locker seems to be a 128 bit SSL certificate, which does absolutely nothing to protect website source code or picture.
The web behind this spam message is even more tangled than the previous book spam message I received. If I learn anything more, I will add it in the comments.
