MEET JOE ALVARADO... He falsely "Claims" :
18 Yrs Total (His claim) False
1SG, 31C, 18E, AND 18Z (His claim) False
1/75th Ranger Bn (His claim) False
10th SFG(A) (His claim) False
3 PH's, SS, and BS (His claim) False
ALL THE CLAIMS ABOVE ARE BOGUS
Joe was sent to us by a friend in Arizona back in 2010. It seems he was claiming many things, Ranger, SF, 3 PHs, BS, SS....... All false.
He also claimed to have won $92,000,000 in the lottery and was borrowing money off people with a promise to repay double when he got his money.
We could find no-one that knew him and his timeline wasn't adding up.
He was USAR/USANG from '83 to '88 and Active duty from '88 to '92
Fairly long time to be discharged as a Specialist.
No records of him graduating from either SFQC or Ranger School.
We did find some other records, however they are of the criminal type.
The person who originally contacted us in early 2011 stated he was going around Phoenix Arizona claiming to have won $46,000,000 (then changed to $92,000,000).
He had many many people duped into believing his lies. In fact one individual (believing they would be repaid and some) purchased him 2 cars.
He was given free room and board while perpetuating these lies, always having an excuse why his check hadn't arrived yet.
He even had the MOPH duped as he rode in a parade with them claiming to be a PH recipient.
After we busted him the 1st time, he went to prison for 2 years, got out and immediately got himself the new Ranger tat. Two years of prison didn't slow him down a bit.
Be aware of this Green Beret POSer, Fraud and con man. He'll take your money.
Joe Alvarado, you'll forever be added to the Guardians of The Green Beret Hall of Shame and you also will rank in our Top 10 area.
