Carolina Liar . . .

. . . is the name of a talented band, whose lead singer harkens from South Carolina.  It is also an apt description for an overwhelming majority of residents in the Triangle Region of North Carolina.  Why this is the case is a mystery to many, but certainly anyone who relocates or spends any meaningful amount of time here picks up on this astonishing phenomenon.  And since lying is an important element in corruption, this also explains why this may very well be the most corrupt region in the United States.

Numerous bombastic lies about Spencer C. Young appeared in over 60 false and personally disparaging articles by principally four local newspapers as part of a malicious smear campaign developed by Burson-Marsteller and surreptitiously sponsored by Morgan Stanley and Kirkland & Ellis.   If interested, each of the articles, along with a detailed analysis measured pursuant to a Manure Meter (shown below), is accessible by clicking here.

The culpable newspapers are:

Here is a sampling of just some of the outlandish lies . . . along with the associated truth.
 The Published Lie
 The Truth          
This was a dispute between private parties, and nobody's business but theirs. 
 False.  This was a violation of a local ordinance [i.e. special use permit ("SUP")], which the Town of Chapel Hill failed to enforce
P.H. Craig owns most of the parking spaces to The Courtyard of Chapel Hill ("TCoCH")
 False.  The land was fully-encumbered by the SUP, which stated it to be solely for use by patrons of The Courtyard of Chapel Hill.    
Spencer Young and PH Craig have been locked in a contract dispute over parking for 18 months (as of Aug. 2007)
 False.  Mr. Craig refused to enter into ANY agreement at ANY terms, as documented by Womble Carlyle to Mr. Craig's attorney
The Orange County Commissioners tried to help by leasing their parking lot to Mr. Young.
 False.  This was a canard to make it APPEAR local government was trying to help, but six months of weekend night parking was useless
The Town of Chapel Hill helped out by bagging 35 metered spaces for the exclusive use of TCoCH employees
 False.  Also a canard -- offering TEMPORARY spaces was NOT a solution. The Town was obligated to enforce the SUP, but didn't
Leases at TCoCH expressly promised parking, and Mr. Young failed to live up to that promise 
 False.  Not ONE lease at TCoCH promised ANY parking due to the long cantankerous history with P.H. Craig
Mr. Young won't pay rent for the parking spaces and Mr. Craig won't sell the spaces 
 False.  Mr. Young made MANY leasing proposals that Mr Craig agreed to, but later reneged on, as documented by Womble Carlyle
TCoCH was out of compliance with the Town's minimum parking requirements 
 False.  The Town of Chapel Hill rescinded minimum parking standards long before Mr. Craig set up the illegal parking lot blockade
The Downtown Partnership tried to help by footing the bill for mediation
 False.  A canard: $250 for mediator paled to the $thousands paid to Mr. Young's attorneys, while Mr. Craig would agree to NOTHING 
 Lex Alexander closed his 3 Cups Coffee Shop
 False.  Lex Alexander and his 3 Cups business were evicted for non-payment of rent -- all claims against Mr. Young were dismissed
 Spencer Young drove Lex Alexander/3 Cups out of its downtown location
 False.  Lex Alexander/3 Cups drove themselves out by wrongfully withholding rent, and were evicted for non-payment of rent
 Lawsuits in excess of $3 million are mounting against Spencer Young and his Chapel Hill property.
 False.  Lawsuits predicated on an orchestrated fraud, are exactly that . . . frauds -- had the Town enforced SUP, all would be fine 
 Spencer Young appeared late for a foreclosure hearing.
 False.  Mr. Young arrived early . . . it was his attorney, Michael Denning of Shanahan Law Group who was late.
 (As of Sept 2007) Wachovia has not received a payment since February
 False. Mr. Young tendered in May to bring loan current, but Wachovia rejected, he also paid Aug.for forbearance, but Wachovia reneged
 Former owner of TCoCH, Spencer Young went bankrupt
 False. Spencer Young has NEVER filed for bankruptcy, but he was UNLAWFULLY denied corporate bankruptcy protection for TCoCH  
 A consignment shop tenant , "The Stock Exchange" moved out due to a sewer leak
 False. Sewer lines were sabotaged with obstructive materials to cause backups, but this tenant remains liable for rent as per the lease 
 Spencer Young often feuded with his tenants
 False. ALL adverse events were linked with the illegal blockade & Lex Alexander/3 Cups was the ONLY tenant who made an issue of it
 TCoCH was a great spot in Chapel Hill, but Mr. Young's ownership & temperament made it an eyesore
 False. TCoCH was a tired property, and vast improvements were made & top tenants (e.g., Bonne Soiree) came -- but sabotage started 7/07 
 Paragon Bank foreclosed on Spencer Young's home in Chapel Hill
 False.  A bank can NOT foreclose on a mortgage that was NEVER late, NOT delinquent and PAID-IN-FULL . . . this was foreclosure FRAUD
 Spencer Young was arrested for resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement officers
 False.  Mr. Young was denied inalienable rights to life, liberty & happiness; showing no resistance, he was tasered; bogus charges were dropped 
 The Orange County Sheriff was told Spencer Young had a gun
 False.  Spencer Young has NEVER owned a gun, and this statement was concocted so they could carry out a planned assassination
 Spencer Young refused to follow Deputies' instructions so he had to be tasered.
 False.  Mr. Young showed no resistance & they couldn't shoot him (he had CNN & ABC on the line), so they tasered trying to cause asystole
 Magistrate was concerned about Mr. Young's mental stability so he sent to UNC Psychiatric ward 
 False.  This was concocted in the EXACT manner depicted in the movie, Changling, starring Angelina Jolie
 Spencer Young sent threatening emails to Mayor Kevin Foy.
 False.  This is a bombastic lie, and The Daily Tar Heel will be called to task on this (you can't fabricate an email) and faces libel claims

AMERCO & UHaul Corporate Management Alerted to Licensee's Involvement in Fraud & Grand Larceny

The below was filed today with the parent company of UHaul.

UHaul Is Now Party To Grand Larceny With A Corrupt Judge ?!?

You just can't make this stuff up -- and is there no end to this?

Not only does Morgan Stanley turn loved ones against those they target, they turn them into criminal thieves . . . and monsters  In this case, it was done through the encouragement and direction of a corrupt Durham Police Dept, and the assistance of a retired (and also corrupt) Durham County Superior Court Judge.  They then enlisted assistance from a UHaul self-storage licensee based in Durham, NC -- it is downright disturbing.  [Note:  UHaul is owned by parent company AMERCO, which is a real estate company based in Reno, NV.]

Here's a quick summary of what transpired:

  1. At the encouragement of the Durham Police Dept. (which has a long notorious reputation as a corrupt organization), Leah Krier filed entirely BOGUS domestic violence charges against her fiancee' (Spencer Young), which she later admitted to in her April 9 phone conversation.
  2. Ms. Krier then lied in a court filing indicating her belongings were being kept in a UHaul storage facility.  These were Spencer Young's belongings, and yet another manifestation of what may be the most egregious fraudulent bank foreclosure in US history.
  3. Retired Superior Court Judge L.Q. Labarre was brought on "as a favor" to fraudulently grant Ms. Krier the right to unconditional access to Mr. Young's belongings without his knowledge., which he learned of ONE MONTH LATER.
  4. The UHaul operator granted Ms. Krier and other yet-unidentified accomplices unsupervised access, WITHOUT notifying Mr. Young, and it appears Ms. Krier stole everything of value from this storage facility, including extremely valuable paintings (e.g., paintings by Monet and Salvador Dali); and
  5. When Mr. Young learned of this GRAND LARCENY theft a MONTH LATER, he responded as noted below.
These events, together with the emails exchanged (reproduced below) are further evidence that the Triangle Region of North Carolina is perhaps the most corruption laden of ANY region in the United States, and any one thinking of relocating to this thoroughly dysfunctional area of the country can look forward to never-ending vexation.  This is the case because it seems NO ONE TELLS THE TRUTH and EVERYONE LIVES A LIE or otherwise ACTS PURSUANT TO A HIDDEN AGENDA.  It is a remarkably screwed up region.

With regard to the emails exchanged below (noting especially those statements which are highlighted in blue), a simple question to ask is this:  How is it possible that UHaul could have processed the payment?

A separate note to Leah:  

Leah --

My disappointment in your continued disturbing behavior only grows to be increasingly profound . . . for at this point, I don't know who, nor what you are . . . and your increasingly bizarre antics have been the source of tremendous consternation . . . in short, you have become a monster, in that you have let evil prevail.

Bradley --

I have already removed the auto-pay, but please confirm such is the case. I am
1,000 miles away and have no idea what remains, and your behavior suggests you will not remain in the employment of UHaul for very long.

And you are either part of this corruption nonsense by blindly following orders
or just a dolt . . . but you certainly epitomize what is so very wrong in North

I again reiterate my earlier requests.

Subject: Re: U-Haul Storage Room 1146 -- MY RESPONSE & DIRECTIONS I said.  Whether it was fake or not she had a court order to cut your lock off.  She replaced it and has the key.  We have no way to get into your room and will not at any time go into your room unless it is failed to be paid for and up for auction.  I will at least put an additional lock on there so she cant get in since its you against her but this is not our problem.  If the document was fake it is something you have to take up with her.  Any further questions or concerns just shoot me an email and will be able to get in better contact with you this way rather than by phone because of lack of extra time.

Thanks, Brad

I read it and doesnt pertain to us.  Spoke with my supervisor again and as I told you if she made false papers its on her and up to you to press any charges on her.  Our only business with you is with storage and the payment with storage so I took your auto payment off and if payment is not kept up then things will be auctioned.  No way around it so if this wasnt supposed to transpire then sorry but not our business. I dont have time to go back and forth with you about this.  So we need no further contact unless your making a payment or moving out of storage.  Do you want me to discard the auto payment still or not?

Thanks, Brad

Moreover, how dare you make such a threat . . . for at this point, it appears UHaul owes me a great deal more.

Due to your overt incompetence, I have no idea what, if anything, is left in the storage unit, which should have NEVER been compromised without my knowledge.  I want to be clear -- you are getting yourself involved in a massive national scandal, and I've got a dozen websites on it, along with a series of federal lawsuits about to be launched, and you are just one more name to add to the list of defendants.  Go to for an overview, and to for that which pertains to North Carolina, which very well might be the most corruption-laden state in the United States.

When you remove Ms. Krier's lock, I would like you to take a few pictures of the contents, and email them to me . . . and I'd like this done ASAP.  Thank you.

Brad -

It's as though you didn't bother to read my email -- try reading it this time.

It is important that you comply with my express instructions, as this will serve as evidence of the criminal theft, and failure to cooperate will be deemed aiding & abetting.

In the meantime, please send me a copy of the security video (any common file format such as MPG, WMV, AVI or FLV) for the time period(s) the belongings were removed, together with the names of others who assisted Ms. Krier in this theft. Please send this by return email.

In addition, please remove the padlock placed on the subject space by Ms. Krier, and replace it with a new padlock (at YOUR cost) on the door, and allow no one else but me access to the subject space going forward.

Thank you.

As I said before I contacted my supervisor and he said if everything looked legit and it had specific directions in which it did then we could honor it.  I dont know of anything of the rest of which you speak of.  As you requested I will take your auto payment off but in the even you fail to pay after 60 days yours and whoever else belongings are in there will be auctioned off.

Bradley --

That court order produced by Leah Krier was a fraud, an obvious denial of due process, and an instance of grand larceny theft, for which U-haul played a complicit role, and is therefore liable.

This is the case because U-haul made no effort to corroborate its legitimacy, which would have been obvious, had you bothered to read the vague, open-ended nature of it, e.g., "personal effects". If there were any such items, they should have been specified in a detailed list, and submitted to me for review and response, especially since Ms. Krier owes me $78,000 + interest, and prior thereto, had stolen a Mercedes Benz S-320, high end electronic equipment, and valuable paintings

At the very least, U-haul should have: (1) contacted me; (2) allowed me to send a representative to oversee what was being removed to determine if it did belong to Leah Krier; and (3) sent a U-haul representative to make a record of what was removed and then send it to me.

U-haul did none of the above. In fact, you made no effort to contact me whatsoever, as you confirmed in your email to me below -- I contacted YOU to inquire.

Therefore, until I can assess the damages, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, I HEREBY REVOKE U-haul's auto-debit authority for monthly payments. In the meantime, please send me a copy of the security video (any common file format such as MPG, WMV, AVI or FLV) for the time period(s) the belongings were removed, together with the names of others who assisted Ms. Krier in this theft. Please send this by return email.

In addition, please remove the padlock placed on the subject space by Ms. Krier, and replace it with a new padlock (at YOUR cost) on the door, and allow no one else but me access to the subject space going forward.

Thank you.

Subject: Uhaul Storage Room 1146

On 4/1/11 Leah Krier showed up at our facility with a court order allowing her to her property at our location in a Spencer Young's name.  I spoke to my supervisor and he informed me if papers are expalining exactly what to do we can allow access so we did.  Nothing more has transpired in this event until he was made aware of this somehow and called on 5/2/11 asking what happened.

Note:  Reflected below are snapshots of having removed the auto-pay arrangements on the UHaul system.  So it is obvious someone on the UHaul end consciously reinstated without Mr. Young's knowledge nor authorization.
