UPDATE #3 – From ‘something’s rotten in Denmark to a Bad smell in Benwah’ – The Citadel: Gun-Loving Americans Signing Up to Live in Idaho Fortress Community’
This reeks of either well meaning if gullible people wanting a ‘community’ of like minded people or a scam by at least 1 and maybe 2 con artists.
By the way – the ‘walls’ surrounding the ‘citadel’ are to be 5′ thick and 20′ high.
Do you know what the cost of that much cement would be?
Jim Miller – from everything I can find – owns an ‘arms company that has exactly 2 – count them – 2 weapons. And at present because of supply problems – isn’t producing ANY weapons.
Yet the funding of the ‘citadel’ as outlined by him would be coming from the profits of III Arms.
Second – A Mr. Hyman /Sam Kerodin / Christian Kerodin / Sam Kerillion / Sam Hellesponte / Sam III or unknown other names used at this time is the primary driving force behind this endevor.
He is also a self-styled security consultant and convicted extortionist’.
When you are asked to pay money via the ‘application’ BEFORE they will answer sepcific questions re:financing, then this tells me this is a scam.
‘Well, that didn’t take long’.
‘Meet the Men Who Want to Build an Armed Castle Commune for ‘Patriots’
‘James L. Miller is many things, a motorcycle enthusiast, accused online scammer, doomsday prepper, gunmaker and cat lover’.
‘Christian Kerodin also wears a number of hats; he is an air conditioning repairman, blogger, author, self-styled security consultant and convicted extortionist’.
‘Both men also seem to be the masterminds behind a plan to build a massive, armed survivalist compound in Idaho that has been making national headlines’.
