Thus he regaled his friends with tragic fishtales of his valiant struggle and how much of a victim he is. An imaginative commentator claims:
She filed frivolous motions and she has failed the children as a mother? Some evidence, please. Which of the two parents is perpetually unemployed? Which of the two parents pleaded guilty to two felonies? Which of the two parents has been sued for fraud? Which of the parents is a pathological liar who spends all day every day making up stories to anyone who will listen?
In Frischling's ridiculous GoFundMe, there was a donation made under her name:
Ah now what do have here? Why, it's Steven Frischling's eBay history over the past year. And guess how many purchases he made during the last 12 months? 48 total purchases, of which 33 were in the past six months, and two in the past month. Therefore, we can deduce that the vast majority of the purchases happened from one to six months ago. In fact, his purchasing activity from approximately February to July DOUBLED over the previous time span. Well now that's odd, since he was spending everything he had on legal bills and taking care of his children, right? Food and shelter were the important priorities, right? How strange that during the time he was supposedly struggling financially, he was buying, buying, buying on eBay!
And what was he buying? Things necessary for his job? No. As you can see from the sellers on his profile, he was buying mostly computer electronics and two-way radio equipment.
What do two-way radios have to do with his job as a social media consultant? Nothing. You need a computer and a phone for that. If he needed one for local news photography, he very clearly already had the equipment he needed.
An excellent reader points out that 14 weeks ago, about a month after the GoFundMe, Frischling posted this on Instagram:
That appears to be a new or near-new Motorola XTS3000 Model II. So he came home to find a few of these, ay? Here is the same model currently for sale on eBay for $200.
Why would he need a few of them? Why would he need even ONE? He doesn't. He no doubt will claim that they were sent to him by the manufacturer or someone free of charge because he is so important. Bullshit. He bought it on eBay with the money people gave him.
Also note that Frischling does not sell anything on eBay (or has sold fewer than 10 items ever). Which sure is odd, because you would think that before he asks strangers to give him money, he would be frequently selling off old equipment he doesn't need, right? Why not sell off some of the equipment he doesn't need anymore?
So all of you supportive people who donated to Frischling thinking it would help feed and shelter his children and pets, congratulations, thanks for helping him buy electronics (that he didn't need) for himself. Yeah, because everyone social media consultant needs to own two MacBooks, three iPads, and four smart phones.
