Beware These Shelley Lubben SCAM Fundraisers

Having cheated on her husband for the umpteenth time, shacked up with a homeless ranch-hand, pressed dubious criminal charges against both, alienated and abandoned her own family, and with no viable skills or sources of income to fund her hefty alcohol, weed and prescription drug diet, what's a self-described "hustler" and "con artist" like Shelley Lubben to do?

Answer: Try to work the rubes one more time via GoFundMe.

First, we have this fundraiser, created way back on January 27, 2015, entitled "Adult Con Outreach". The actual name of the event is "AdultCon", but in hindsight, Shelley's rendering of it is more true to her intentions.


Here's what Shelley says the money is needed for:



A quick side note: Lubben doesn't live in Santa Barbara, she lives out in the sticks of Springville, Calif., 210 miles away.

Now, I don't recall whether Lubben and her gang actually attended the 2015 AdultCon in Los Angeles, but if they did, they obviously didn't need this money to do so.  But regardless of whether they attended or not, seeing as how Pink Cross Foundation was officially shut down in February 2016 -- nine months ago at press time -- why the heck is this fundraiser still in place?

The good news is, potential donors seem to have asked themselves the same question; the page has only seen a $10 increase in the last nine months:

Now this second Lubben fundraising scam is my favorite, for it gives us another glimpse into the workings of her wine-soaked diabolical mind.



This one, far less successful than its predecessor, was created on May 12, 2015, which coincided with her move to a new property in Springville, Calif.  It was originally entitled "Shelley's Birthday Wish", and we previously reported on it here.

Well, two birthdays came and went; Pink Cross is, like the snows of yesteryear, gone from the face of the earth, and yet the fundraiser remains online.

Even better, Lubben has, in recent months, had to sell her own clothes and household items to make ends meet. And without an anti-porn operation to promote, how the hell could she be planning a trip to the UK? The only trip Shelley's likely to be going on anytime soon is one to the state penitentiary. And a months-long search of UK speaking gigs for the disgraced "rebel prophet" turned up nothing.

However, the most interesting part is this: whilst the fundraiser was originally posted by Lubben on behalf of Pink Cross Foundation, she has since altered it to read "on behalf of Garrett Lubben."

Garrett is her ex-husband, against whom she has pressed dubious legal charges and who sought a protective order against her. Mr. Lubben has gone on record to state in no uncertain terms that he and his daughters want no ties to Shelley whatsoever. In fact, he had no idea that his name was on this fundraiser until we informed him on November 21, 2016. In other words, "on behalf of Garrett Lubben" is another Shelley Lubben lie, and likely one meant to somehow ensnare her ex in more of her nonsensical schemes.




Once a con artist, always a con artist. That's our Shelley.

UPDATE -- Nov 26, 2016:

Both campaigns have been pulled from GoFundMe. The webpage for each now looks like this:

Shelley Lubben Accused Current Boy-Toy Of Rape, Assault With Deadly Weapon

New details revealed in court documents

What effect will this case have on the curious DV charges she brought against her then-husband, Garrett?


Springville, Calif -- A lot of readers have been enquiring about Joe Valley, the hapless (and otherwise homeless) captive boyfriend of former anti-porn scamster and self-promoter par excellence, Shelley Lubben.

Since breaking the news about the then-married Lubben's affair with Valley, which began in the summer of 2015, we've learned more about their tumultuous relationship.
First published pic of the star-crossed couple

As noted previously, on Christmas Eve 2015 (incidentally, also Valley's 26th birthday), the bleach-blonde Mrs. Robinson wanna-be dialed 911 about an attack at the Springville ranch property her husband had purchased.

The Tulare County sheriffs took Joe Valley into custody, and he was booked on early Christmas morning.

Valley, who had been living in his Jeep until Mrs. Lubben beckoned to join her atop the mountain, was unable to pay his bond, and remained in jail until his trial. 

Presented here for the first time is the felony criminal complaint against Joseph Valley, which was filed by the District Attorney on December 29:


Now, rape and assault with a deadly weapon are no laughing matter. Yet, according to a spokesman for the Tulare County Superior Court, Valley was able to "plead to one count, while the others were dismissed." Surely DNA evidence would point to Valley. Did Lubben change her story?

His charge of domestic battery lowered to misdemeanor-level, Valley was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with credit for time served, given probation, and released on March 22, 2016.

By then, Lubben's husband, Garrett, had already refused her pleas for a second chance, and filed for divorce... setting the stage for a Lubben-Valley reunion.

What does all this mean for the curious DV charges she brought against her then-husband, Garrett, then retracted under penalty of perjury, before attempting to retract her retraction?

More on this ongoing story, as Shelley Lubben's December 5, 2016 appearance on the witness stand looms.


WTF Is Up With Shelley Lubben's Face?

Here's a recent photo of the down-on-her-luck "rebel prophet" and adulteress, Shelley Lubben, with her boyfriend, homeless Joe Valley.

 
The most obvious weird feature is her nose, but let's be honest...the whole damn face is a mess.
 

We've seen the many faces of Shelley Lubben over the years -- here's a mini gallery:
