Paris Hilton Sheds Tears Testifying Against Her Hacker In Court: "I Have Been Violated So Many Times In My Life"

Paris Hilton will never be the same after being the victim of a hacker. The socialite couldn't stop herself from crying in court as she testified against Paystar Bkhchadzhyan — the woman who was sentenced to 57 months in prison to bank fraud conspiracy on Monday for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from Paris' bank accounts [...] Paris Hilton will never be the same after being the victim of a hacker. The socialite couldn't stop herself from crying in court as she testified against Paystar Bkhchadzhyan -- the woman who was sentenced to 57 months in prison to bank fraud conspiracy on Monday for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from Paris' bank accounts and nude photos from her iCloud account. Related: Paris Says Her Sex Tape Leak Was 'Like Being Raped' Paris made it clear in court that she has been deeply affected by the crime; not only will she never store nudes on her iCloud account again, she's now scared to be home alone! She said in front of the judge: "This has impacted me in so many ways. I am constantly looking over my shoulder and even scared to walk into my home alone fearful that this woman or her boyfriend or other dangerous friends are inside there waiting to hurt me or steal from me." As we reported, Bkhchadzhyan allegedly hacked into Paris' bank accounts, used her credit cards, and even impersonated the heiress, emailing Paris' assistant to wire over $80,000 to the hacker's personal account. After the ruling was made, the Simple Life star was seen outside the courthouse speaking with reporters, looking pleased that justice had been served. Good for her! Read her full testimony, obtained by The Blast, below: "Thank you your honor. It is very important for me to stand here today and pursue legal action on behalf of myself, my family and anyone who has been targeted with hacking. This was stealing and an invasion of my privacy. Public figure or not, no one should be a target for this crime. I hope that by being here today it brings awareness that this won't be tolerated and moving forward it doesn't continue to happen to me or anyone else. "When I first found out that my personal emails, iCloud, credit cards and identity had been stolen and taken over by some stranger I felt so upset, hurt and violated. The defendant not only hacked into my accounts and made credit cards with my name on them but somehow found a way to hack into the email accounts of my employees, my friends and my family members such as my father and sister. The defendant started contacting me personally thru text after she impersonated me to a phone company and took over my cell phones where she actually had set it up so that she had her own phones that were directly linked to mine receiving all of my personal texts, emails, whatsapp conversations, private photos and videos. "The defendant was impersonating to be someone else and she lied to me, tried to con, scare and extort me for money saying that these other women had broken into my iCloud and stolen private photos and messages and threatening me that if I did not pay for my pictures and my private information that it would be sold to the media to be leaked to public. I was told that they were already in talks with reporters and media companies interested. I was so upset, distraught and terrified that I could hardly sleep that entire week constantly being contacted by this woman who had targeted me and my life. It was so scary, upsetting, disturbing, shocking, and stressful to be threatened and extorted in such a way. "It even got scarier when the front gate security guards in the gated community where I live started getting very heated calls from a woman they said was very rude impersonating me and demanding that her guests only be let into the gates of my private community but also to be let into my house. During this time I was in Switzerland terrified that these strangers were going to break into my home and steal everything. "When she was not allowed past the security gate or into my home she started writing extremely rude messages to my assistant Angie Enos again impersonating and pretending to be me and demanding that Angie wire $50k into her account. At this point my assistant knows that I would never speak to her in such a rude way so she contacted me over the phone to ask if I had asked for the wire and I said no. Then because this woman could not get the wire from my assistant she targeted my parents and wrote my mother very rude messages demanding that she take out $50k in cash to be sent to her from my mothers account. My mom then contacted me to ask if it was me because she knew that I would never be asking for money from her. The defendant then again using my private email account started writing several of my friends asking them to send private photos of us together and other personal questions all the while my friends are thinking it is me asking since this is all being written from my personal email account. It was never ending. This was so stressful. "Then we discovered from the Roosevelt Hotel that the defendant impersonated me once again and booked the penthouse suite at the hotel to throw a New Year's Eve party ordering tens of thousands of dollars of champagne on my credit card. Also being extremely rude to the staff at the hotel. Also using my credit card to go buy watches and other expensive items. The defendant also used my identity and credit card information at the Mr. C Hotel in Beverly Hills spending on my credit card for room and personal entertainment. Now it has made me very scared, terrified and traumatized. This has impacted me in so many ways. I am constantly looking over my shoulder and even scared to walk into my home alone fearful that this woman or her boyfriend or other dangerous friends are inside there waiting to hurt me or steal from me. "This woman targeted me in such a way that I will never forget or get over it. I feel so incredibly violated. She was trying to get all my user names and passwords for every single one of my email and bank accounts. She took over my life and identity. She tried to shake me up for money. It was all so unbelievable and crazy that it truly seemed like something out of a movie. I have a very busy schedule and was supposed to be out of town today but I rescheduled my trip just to be here because I wanted you, your honor, to know and understand just how much this truly affected me and what a serious crime this is. "I have been violated so many times in my life and I am sick and tired of just brushing it under the rug and not standing up for myself. I want the defendant and any other hackers out their who are planning to target me or anyone else that this is wrong, highly illegal and a serious crime and it will not be tolerated and if they attempt again then they will be punished for their despicable actions. No one should ever have to go through this or made to feel this way and I hope by being here today it will help make a difference and make people think twice before they attempt or try to do such deplorable things to another person and hopefully put a stop to this. Thank you, your honor." [Image via Ivan Nikolov/WENN.].....»»

This Rape Victim Was Forced To Go To The Bank With Her Abusive Ex To Close Their Joint Account

This is not right! A domestic violence survivor is now fighting so that other victims will not go through the same terrifying experience as she did.

A domestic violence survivor is now fighting so that other victims will not go through the same terrifying experience as she did. An unnamed woman was defended by her local MP Lisa Cameron (pictured above), who appeared in parliament to urge Theresa May to change the law requiring both members to be present to close a joint bank account. You see, this woman was told by her bank that she could not close a joint account unless she attended with her abusive ex-husband, from whom she had just escaped after being abused for two decades. Related: Larry Nassar Begs Judge To Stop Victim Impact Stories She told Buzzfeed News of the re-traumatizing occurrence: "However, my husband had emptied the account leaving a small balance in credit and then put the account into dispute, meaning it took two signatures to change the account. He could have closed the account but then he would not have been able to have control or continue to torment me. He was arrested around the same time for assault. The bank insisted that we both needed to come down together, even after I told them he was on bail for assaulting me. This made no difference to them. Even though the account was in credit and I was prepared to forfeit the money, they still refused. They then told me it was a civil matter. I was distraught and still in shock. I was desperately trying to distance myself from him and struggled with PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder]. This situation just re-traumatised me. And it dragged on and on." For over twenty years, she faced "emotional, mental, sexual, physical, and financial abuse," which she was able to escape thanks to the help of charity Women's Aid. And now, thanks to Cameron, hopefully other women won't face the same issue. The survivor went on: "The bank now tell me they have a 'vulnerable customer team' and that if the same thing happened now I would be dealt with more sympathetically by them. I've asked them to advertise this department in all their branches." Cameron told her fellow members of parliament: "My constituent informed me that she had been repeatedly raped and beaten by her ex-partner, requiring an injunction. Much to her horror, her bank would not close her joint account unless she attended with the perpetrator. When banks are left to their own discretion, women's lives are put at risk. Will the prime minister ensure policy to protect survivors is included in the pending domestic violence bill?" The Prime Minister responded: "We want to ensure that we give proper support to all those who have been subject to domestic violence or to abuse of the kind to which you have referred." Change for good! [Image via parliamentlive.tv.].....»»

Lindsay Lohan Loses Childhood Home In Bank Battle

Even if she […] The post Lindsay Lohan Loses Childhood Home In Bank Battle appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Lindsay Lohan is probably not as loaded as you assumed. So that ballpark figure of the sum of her funds being at least enough to rent a room in her mother’s humble abode when she’s done couch surfing strange men for a place to stay in the Middle East was way off. Even if she wanted to come back she couldn’t because the house belongs to Chase now. Danielle Bregoli paid off the remaining amount due for her mother’s house and a notable, once A-list actress didn’t have enough money to keep a roof over her mother’s head. I don’t know if I could ever watch The Parent Trap again knowing that the same little girl grew into such a horrible young woman who couldn’t save her mom from homelessness. Dina Lohan has lost her home to foreclosure. A New York judge has ordered that the 55-year-old’s Long Island, New York, house, where her daughter, Lindsay Lohan, grew up, should be sold at a public auction within 90 days. The order comes as a result of Dina reportedly defaulting on her mortgage and failing to respond to the foreclosure lawsuit. As of December 2017, she owed $1,492,784 on the property, which was due for payment in October 2017. Lindsay did attempt to save the house once, basically throwing $40,000 down the drain because the house eventually ended up in foreclosure. In 2012, police were called to the home after the Mean Girls actress and her mom were involved in an altercation. “At 8:06 a.m. [police] got a call for a domestic disturbance. There had been some sort of verbal dispute between Lindsay and her mother that took place in a limo that was coming from New York City.” No arrests were made and the mother-daughter duo were seen hugging outside of the property shortly after. They appear to have had another squabble in January 2016, when Lindsay wrote “sometimes it sucks when your mom isn’t there for you,” in a since-deleted social media post. It looks like Lindsay will be getting the last laugh if she still hates her mother for not being there. Maybe her mother is neglectful. Or maybe she was just tired of a teenage Lindsay always asking visit the family doctor to cure her reoccurring cases of syphilis and other STDs she swore she contracted from public toilet seats.

Marcos Taylor (above), who played Suge Knight in the film Straight Outta Compton, was arrested earlier this month after going on a rampage at a New Jersey bank. According to TMZ, police were called to a TD Bank on August 8 after Taylor got violent, threatening to kill employees and even lunging at cops. Law enforcement officials say the actor blew up over an issue with his bank card and had been hostile from the start. After losing his patience with an employee, he reportedly said "I will fucking kill you." Related: Shailene Woodley MIGHT 'Run For Congress In A Couple Years' When cops arrived on the scene, the martial artist reportedly got into a fighting stance, prompting officers to pepper spray and arrest him. Taylor was charged with terroristic threats, obstruction of justice, and disorderly conduct -- but apparently, his week of troublemaking wasn't over. TMZ also reported that the very next day, Taylor was arrested for assault after allegedly attacking employees at an Italian restaurant. Related: White Nationalist From Vice Doc Surrenders To Police Sources say on August 9, the stuntman got into a heated argument with the manager of a Carrabba's Italian Grill in Green Brook, NJ -- which led to Taylor punching the manager multiple times in the face. According to Taylor's attorney, the actor got jumped in the parking lot and was hitting back in self-defense. The actor even penned a vague reference to his innocence on Instagram, writing: "Don't believe everything you read #thatismyjudgement" Restaurant employees, however, say Taylor started an all out brawl -- even punching a woman in the head -- in the restaurant, which led to employees dragging him out of the building. Taylor was reportedly charged with 4 counts of assault, 1 count of criminal mischief and 1 count of disorderly conduct. Sounds like an intense few days -- maybe it was just method acting that went too far? [Image via Instagram.].....»»

We must warn you, this footage is very difficult to watch. But, it's important to know this is the reality black men and women face as a result of police brutality. The clip shows Anthony Wall being lifted, choked, and slammed to the ground outside of a Waffle House by a white Warsaw County, North Carolina police officer named Frank Moss. Wall had gotten into a heated argument with an employee of the restaurant, who called the cops during the exchange. Wall had stopped by the Waffle House after being a date for his 16-year-old sister to prom. Related: Rebecca Ferguson Releases Shocking 'Statement Of Truth' Wall was unarmed and non-violent, but the cell phone video showed him being aggressively beaten as Wall yelled: "Get your hands off me!" Wall later said he takes full responsibility for his argument with the Waffle House employee, but he maintains that the unnamed officer used excessive force upon arrival. He told WTVD: "I was pretty much trying to scream for air and trying to breathe because he was holding my throat. That's when I got aggressive with him because you are choking me." Makes our stomachs drop. Watch the footage (below): That is Anthony Wall, in prom clothes, being lifted off the ground and choked by a Warsaw County police officer @WaffleHouse. He had just taken his little sister to prom. And yet again @WaffleHouse called the cops. Anthony, of course was unarmed & non-violent. This is assault. pic.twitter.com/lLupZbfMcW — Shaun King (@ShaunKing) May 10, 2018 We'll keep you posted as the investigation is ongoing. [Image via Twitter.].....»»
