Both Cosmic Connie and Salty Droid have done a lot of work on Leonard Coldwell, former confederate of serial scammer Kevin Trudeau. I would encourage anyone considering doing business with him, especially if you have health problems to check out their writing. I am not a doctor, but am pretty certain if there was some miracle cure for cancer it would hit the front page. Hey it's your money, and no one would lie to put it in their pocket.
What prompted me to write this was Connie's letter to Coldwell's fans. People who hurt animals disgust me, inciting followers to do who knows what is equally disturbing. Egging on someone who is not mentally balanced to do your bidding, what can we expect from someone who would trade false hope for cold cash?

Dear unquestioning Leonard Coldwell fans who believe Coldwell's lie about who poisoned Coldwell's dog Blue:
I respectfully ask that you read this blog post -- and follow all necessary links -- and perhaps then you will see why Leonard Coldwell, whom I've never met and never tried to meet, is on a rampage against ME, rather than the other way around. Everything he has been telling you fans about me is a lie and he knows it, and everyone who knows me or has followed my blog knows it too. As a lifelong animal lover who has several dogs and cats, I would NEVER poison a dog, condone poisoning a dog or be part of anything so atrocious.
Moreover, I have no idea what Coldwell's home address is. He keeps that very private and wouldn't even give it to the courts in his recent major fail of a lawsuit against another blogger (Salty Droid). More than likely, if the dog was indeed deliberately poisoned as he claims (and we only have Coldwell's word for it at this point), it was one of his neighbors. Unfortunately many people hate pit bulls, a breed I happen to be quite fond of (though I am fond of all dogs).
In fact, I've written about my dogs and cats a few times on this blog. I've deeply mourned the ones I lost, though I have yet to write about our sweet Layla, a pretty hound-terrier mix who died last August as a result of eating tainted dog food (I still need to blog about that. It's hard.). It was a terrible death, the worst dog death I have ever seen, and I have seen too many four-legged loved ones through their final hours over the years. The sounds of Layla's cries and the smell of her blood (she was hemorrhaging from both ends) will haunt Ron and me forever. I would never wish such an experience on an innocent dog or on any of the people who love that dog -- no matter how vile the people themselves are.
As for some of the other lies...
Coldwell has accused me of hacking into his new web site, a site that I wrote about at length in my previous blog post. I am too technically inept to hack anyone's web site, not even my own. I do not condone hacking because I do not believe in playing dirty. So Coldwell's and his little web-girl's claims or insinuations that I had ANYTHING to do with "hacking" are simply absurd. His pages were no doubt removed because of numerous complaints from the people he lied about, such as Bernie O'Mahony, whom he falsely accused of being a child rapist (as well as falsely accusing him of hacking into his web site). Bernie has some more about that; his link is at the end.
Anyone who has been following Coldwell for any length of time knows that "hacking" is his most frequent defense. If you're to believe him, that man's sites get hacked more than all of the banking, government, military and other major sites in the world. He must be a very important man!
And for the benefit of those of you who aren't familiar with me or my blog -- and if you believe Coldwell's stories, you obviously are not familiar with me or my blog -- I am a professional writer but I blog as a hobby. I have been blogging since July 2006 and have written about many Scamworld artists, not just Coldwell. Coldwell came on my radar only because of his close ties with now-imprisoned serial scammer Kevin Trudeau. In fact if it hadn't been for Kevin Trudeau promoting Coldwell's shtick in Trudeau's first Natural Cures book, and then later elevating him to such lofty status via Trudeau's huge GIN scam, Coldwell would still be scrabbling around in obscurity. Coldwell deeply owes nearly his entire platform and any prominence he might have in the U.S. to Trudeau -- and when Coldwell was fired from GIN in spring of 2012 his wallet took a huge hit from which he is clearly still trying desperately to recover.
The point I wish to make is that I have only ever written about Leonard Coldwell on this very blog, which as you can clearly see has my real name, and on various Facebook forums, also under my real name (my current avatar is the well-known symbol for marriage equality), and on other people's blogs, usually under the name "Cosmic Connie" because that is an online name used on my blog, but everybody knows it is I. So when Coldwell says I have created hundreds of fake accounts and spent thousands of hours "defaming" him, he is lying. Well, maybe he really believes that is true, but I think not. He is desperate and searching for any way to silence me.
By the way, Alexandra Nouri (not "Nuori," as he spells it) is a real and separate person who runs her own blog and writes books and helps people deal with the narcissists and sociopaths in their lives. She wrote one blog post about Coldwell -- one! -- and he intimidated her into taking it down. But her blog is still up there, big as life. At first Coldwell said Alexandra was Bernie O'Mahony. Now he says she is I. Go figure. It's not the first lie he's told, or even the worst lie, and it won't be the last.
And oh, my goodness, his implication about that "false police report" is truly daft. He cites one woman who very recently retracted her accusation against him (failing to mention that she was just one of numerous women filing complaints). And he says she admitted it was a false report that she filed under pressure, adding, "guess from whom?" By context, the clear implication is that I pressured the woman to file the report at the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina Police Department (case number 2007-04652) in the first place. Really, Leonard?!? That report was filed in 2007, years before I'd ever even heard the name Leonard Coldwell. Back in those blissful days I was occupied with joyfully skewering The Secret. I had no idea of the evil that was in my Whirled's future.
And here's an important point that you Lenny fans need to assimilate: The only reason I am "obsessed" with Coldwell is that he provides so much easy material. To suggest that I have any sexual interest in him whatsoever is a lie -- a highly amusing one, but a lie nevertheless.
The thing is, though, I cannot defend myself on the forums he is using to incite people to hate me and take action against me. He has blocked me from seeing them or from participating in any way. He does not want to give me a chance to speak up for myself and provide links that tell the truth about HIM. To me that reeks of cowardice.
Again, read this blog post post and try to consider what you are doing by supporting the man who is spreading these outrageous lies about me and several other people. Coldwell is angry because ever since May 2012, when I wrote my first blog post about him, I have been asking questions he does not want to answer. Questions about his credentials, his medical qualifications, his cure claims, and the REAL reasons that he changed his name from Bernd Klein (aka Bernd Witchner) and moved from Germany to the United States.The first lies he told about me were that I am an AIDS-infected ex-prostitute who gave bad STDs to her clients, and am now being paid by Big Pharma to discredit and defame him. When nobody believed those lies (not even his closest fan-girls) he switched to the story that I tried to have sex with him. That tale first surfaced last November. At first he said I tried to bed him for more than two years. Soon after he changed that to nearly three years. He can't even be consistent with his lies.
The bottom line is that Coldwell's latest campaign to silence me -- by crassly and cynically using his dog to incite people to action against me -- has put me in serious jeopardy because he published my address in conjunction with the false accusations, and he all but invited people to come and get me. And most of his fans accept his baloney without question. You're all ready to come hunt me down and poison and shoot me (well, some of you are). Check out that deranged woman with the caps-lock problem in the two shots below:
(You've been reported, Haiah.)
You're all ready to condemn me as a crazed, sex-obsessed stalker -- or "a relentless zionist sub-human scum" (well, some of you are).
Later in the same conversation, a woman named Gloria Winters Anderson wrote, "I would LOVE to catch her and defame her the way she defamed Blue!" Duly noted and reported, Gloria. I may have to re-think the relatively respectful tone of this blog post.
And some of you are willing to believe beyond-the-pale, crazy stupid stuff (talk about being mentally ill):
And you guys don't even know me. If you believe what Coldwell is saying about me you are clueless about the real context here, and you won't even bother to try to do a little rudimentary research (well, most of you won't).
Instead you'll believe crap like this gem, where Coldwell imagines that I am some almighty controller who is making other bloggers, such as Bernie O'Mahony, Omri Shabat at GlancingWeb (the guy in Israel), and a "wannabe lawyer" do my bidding. In reality we're all independent bloggers who write what we want, when we want. We just happen to know scum when we see it..
I wonder if Coldwell was referring to his "4 lawyers" when he said, in the sentence immediately following the 4 lawyers reference, that "they are 4 crazy and criminal people." At this point any lawyer who takes any case that Lenny thinks he has against me would have to be crazy, criminal, or both, so maybe this is something on which Lenny and I can agree.
And incidentally, that "mentally ill wannabe lawyer without a license" who has been "hiding two years" is the above-mentioned Salty Droid, aka Jason Jones, whom Coldwell comically confused with Omri in Israel. The sham of a lawsuit that Coldwell filed was dismissed for want of prosecution on April 17, 2014. In fact Coldwell's own lawyer, Dennis J. Kellogg (actually a personal-injury guy that Coldwell found through one of those Lawyers-R-Us services) removed himself from the case early on, no doubt because he realized he'd made a major career blunder by taking the case in the first place. Here's Salty himself writing about it. And here's the Lexis-Nexis link indicating the thing was dismissed. So once again, Coldwell is lying. And he knows it.
But most of you fans probably aren't questioning his claims.
On the other hand, if you're here, and you've read this far, maybe you will be the exception. Maybe you'll be brave enough to open your mind to the possibility that Coldwell is lying about me, and about his other critics as well.
And if he tells such outrageous and extreme and blatantly desperate, legally actionable lies about us, what else is he lying about? "I'll take 'VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING' for $10,000, Alex!"
That $10,000 figure, incidentally, isn't just something I pulled out of my hat. Coldwell actually put a bounty on me on July 15. Or rather, on information about me that links me to whatever it was that happened to his dog (who reportedly and thankfully is now recovering).
Thank you for your time, Coldwell fans. I realize there's probably no hope that some of you will be convinced, and I know of at least one Coldwell fan-girl who is deliberately promoting these lies even after she privately apologized to me for "accidentally" sharing the post that had my address.
Just one more thing: as promised above, here's Bernie O'Mahony at GINtruth.com weighing in. He goes more into the false accusations about the critics hacking Coldwell's web sites, and has screen shots to prove that Coldwell and his fan-girl are lying about the site being "hacked." I warn you that Bernie will not be nearly as kind as I have been, but then, he has been falsely accused by Coldwell of being a child molester, and his picture was pasted on Coldwell's new (and currently removed) site, in conjunction with that atrocious accusation, so he has every right to be angry.
