Default Rob The Robber") Mitchell trashes the USCF to the New York Times

Rob ("The Robber") Mitchell, who tried to con a poor investor out of
$35,000 in a front money scheme by claiming to have made a deal with
Bobby Fischer, who has never played in or directed a USCF rated chess
tournament in his life and who joined the USCF for just one year so
that he could apply for a job with the USCF and has not renewed, has
trashed the USCF in a posting to the New York Times website, as

"Will the USCF survive? If it does not, what becomes of it's assets?
How can you reconcile an organization that both recruits felons into
it's midst while promoting the involvement of children?

"One might ask why another organization has not replaced the USCF yet?
Easy, there simply isn't enough money to be had by any investor who
expects a return to pursue alternatives. Now in the event one or more
people should decide they wish to underwrite a new effort and support
it for some period of time without any expectation of a return of
their monies; it could be done today.

"I can imagine that there are many longtime USCF supporters who may
even decide that a new venture is preferable and more expediant than
spending additionally for the life support of an organization in
persistantly vegetative organization.

"- Posted by Rob"

What is obviously going on here is Rob ("the Robber") is trying to
work another con. He is fishing about for an "investor .... to
underwrite a new effort and support it for some period of time without
any expectation of a return of their monies".

Will anybody here step forward to give Rob "The Robber" money to start
this "new venture"?

He can feel confident that there will be no "expectation of a return
of their monies".
