It was soon discovered that Sal was posting PRs about himself...
Some appeared suspiciously like cribbed news items about actual adult biz personalities, such as photographer Suze Randall.
Suze's daughter, Holly, recognized Sal:
The fantasyland PRs continued...
With that one, it was proven that Sal was cribbing other people's accomplishments and honors and simply changing their name and company to his:
Here's Sal's 'bio' circa 2006:
I am Sal Mckvey Also Known as Bobby Jones.. I am an Adult Nude Model, Also a new XXX starlet. I have appeared in counntless Adult Videoclips, & in tons of Photoshoots.

From 2007 on XPT:

But where were Sal's porn scenes? People on porn forums had been enquiring about them for years.
And therein lay the problem: to date, I remain unaware of any available Sal Mckvey porn scenes or clips. There exists no evidence that he was ever a performer at all.
Sal was clearly a legend in his own mind. He even had, at one time, a site called TheLegendarySalMckvey.wordpress.com. Sal posted there until at least December 2011; through the magic of WayBackMachine, we can still glimpse his vision of himself:
One post read:
hello people this is porn star sal mckvey… Im back!!!!! THE LATIN KING OF EROTICA IS BACK…..IM BACK AND GOING NOWHERE
Along came a spiderIn the fall of 2012, Sal, having failed conclusively at making a name for himself in the adult world, followed in the footsteps of other personalities on porn's fringe -- he signed on with Shelley Lubben and Pink Cross Foundation.
Ironically, Mckvey's name had been mentioned in a Shelley Lubben thread on XPT in 2008
When Lubben first announced Sal’s endorsement of Pink Cross, Sal told a friend that he’d been out of porn for two years, and his only job was “helping out” at the office of a Los Angeles area church. At that time, however, Sal’s Twitter account still retained mentions of “private shows,” and his Twitter and Facebook both featured pics of him in lascivious poses, sucking on a dildo...
...and in one instance, sucking on a penis.
It was but a short jump from this...
... and this...
Lubben saw his potential and, in July 2013, named him leader of a brand new Pink Cross Chapter in the San Fernando Valley.
Aside from a Facebook page, and a booth at a peace march in October 2014, not much was heard about PCF/SFV again.
The return of Sal MckveyA suspicious "fan page" for Sal popped up in Nov. 2014 which went out of its way to warn visitors:
THIS PAGE IS NOT RUN BY THE PORN STAR SAL MCKVEY.. THIS IS JUST A FAN PAGE. RUN BY A FAN OF SAL.. WISHING HE CAN COME BACK
Sal gives himself away, of course:
In 2015, The Lubbens relocated to Springville, CA, and her husband Garrett was arrested twice within 30 days for domestic battery and resisting/obstructing a peace officer. His trial date has been set for February 29, but may be continued until a later date.
