The real truth about Asher Heimermann

Monday, September 2, 2013

If you found your way to this page, you probably already know a bit about the long term online scammer, 19 year old Asher Heimermann.

Asher began his lenthy criminal career early in life-you only have to google his name to see the long history of online scams-from the age of about 12 on up, Asher has plied his trade online to an unsuspecting public via political scams, fake newspaper sites, scam photography and web design businesses and other online scams allowing him to take the money and run.

Asher's scams include years of political 'grifting'; he appears to run for an office, including that of the now infamous 'mayoral' race of Sheboygan in 2011. Asher begs for money online within the context of these political scams-getting himself blocked from many reputalble political sites from doing just that-begging for funds to finance his new 'political campaign.'

When enough suckers have donated to "supportasher" or one of his other 30+ donation sites [that go directly to his paypal account btw], he conveniently drops out of the campaign althogether due to some fabricated emergency or obligation. In the case of the mayoral race, clever Asher actually missed the mayoral debate-calling in at the last minute as one would do if they want to skip school [transcripts available online]. Upon reviewing the documents submitted by Asher to account for the funds he collected, one sees [multiple times over] his cell phone paid for, purchases of a brand new ipad, new high end digital cameras, multiple fast food restaurants and [the kicker] 200.00 to himself for 'consulting fees'- How does one consult themself? In addition to this trumped up list of "expenses" Asher often "rolls over" hundreds of dollars in campaign funds into his next political campaign. One interesting interview upon his withdrawl for the assembly seat he had been running for-Asher stated in an interview that he had an "outstanding political contract in Illinois and had to honor that contract prior to holding an 'office' in the state of Wisconsin"-needless to say, this so-called outstanding contract never existed.

Asher seemingly has an unending supply of suckers willing to donate funds to the next political campaign the scammer will run-but when he runs low on donations-it appears Asher has a solution for that as well...Pose as another politician, or at least act like you are taking contributions for a legitimate campaign! Asher created at least one website and a fake twitter account during the Wisconsin Gov. race-in the name of Tom Barrett who was running against Scott Walker. His page "Tom Barrett For Wisconsin" looked so similar to Barrett's actual page "Wisconsin for Tom Barrett" that many unsuspecting 'donors" had no idea they were donating to Asher at his self created site for contributions "asherpac" not Barrett. In addition, the twitter account "TomForGovernor" was used. Upon being asked to take down the sites or be brought up for fraud charges-the quick thinking con decided to sell the url on 'dealASite" for $1,000. Asher did this in the past with other political candidates including Mahlon Mitchell and others-all of the donations going to support Asher's lifestyle apparently. The political scams still continue today.


Also, Example-

Below is not a legitimate website- If you call though you do get a "professional" sounding lady. "The office of Asher Heimermann" LOL
