John R. Matson

Posted October 29th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

Dear Rob,

In 2003 we sent a letter to John R. Matson about a lien he had against a property in Whatcom County.

And John, deciding it was a scam, forwarded it on to your office suggesting you look into it, saying . . .

This looks like a come/on letter. Please look into this guy named “Joe.” I myself have no relatives to Whatcom County. It looks like he may be trying to get money from people?— John R. Matson

Right, John, that’s what I do. I just randomly send out letters to people in Allyn, WA hoping they’ll bite.

The more likely scenario

Or maybe we found a lien at risk of foreclosure and sent a letter to John because he happened to have the same name as the fellow who’d made the loan.

Which do you think might be the more likely scenario, Rob?

Maybe this will help you decide. Here’s the recent letter received from Whatcom County . . .


And here is the copy of the title report we referenced back in 2003 when we were searching for lien holders on properties in tax foreclosure . . .


The come/on

The mystery here never existed and the notion we’d inappropriately sent John a letter about “his” lien is confirmed as nonsense.

In reality, we’d simply sent a lienholder letter to what appears to be the wrong John R. Matson.

And John, being the skeptic he is, felt the need to pass my letter on to your office. End of story.

In the arena,

Joe Kaiser

    Rob, do you see how things can be interpreted wrongly here..?…Do you think anyone on your staff can make a mistake, a rush to judgment……?…..Or is it an all-out zeal to make brownie points or a new promotion no matter who they hust in the process?????

    Occasionally I get these letters heralding “DaveD – you may have won one million dollars.” All along, I’ve thought Riiiiiight!

    But you just gave me an entirely different take on this. It might mean they simply sent that letter to me (the wrong DaveD), and some OTHER DaveD got the mil.

    Yes Dave, I’m sure that’s exactly what happened.

    There are so many young children being held in abusive homes as foster children in Washington. Washington is infamous in this regard.

    And the AG’s office is spending time trying to deflect the utter and complete failure of our state government to clean up that situation by trumpeting bogus cases, such as their lies about Joe Kaiser, to the public.

    Disgusting, reprehensible, malicious, knowingly.
