A con man is a bit too far, he did have some musical connections, I believe he even engineered or was involved with a British band that was kind of akin to Lowgold. He also had a wife, who he told me worked for MSNBC at one time doing audio for the Dan Abrams show.

I don't know he was a strange one, but I think he just wanted to be loved and there isn't anything wrong with that. I think there is a chance he is alive still, he is crazy enough to pull something like this off.


They’re lies as well mate lol.

I worked with a sociopath for years and years. He essentially lied about everything, never showed any remorse but was quite a nice guy. He once told us he was in Australia, when we knew he was elsewhere, and tried to prove it by tagging himself in pictures of pubs in Sydney on an Instagram story. All the images were from the opening page of an obvious google search of ‘pubs in Sydney’. He told us he split with his wife and got with a naive girl in the office. When it all came out years later, that he was still married, he claimed he had cancer to gain sympathy. Someone noticed he’d used the same post code on both addresses on his letter from the NHS. Endless lies. He still tried to celebrate being cancer free 6 months later.

he had a wife who never once let him take a picture on her phone when his battery had died?

I see what Billy is saying, at the end of the day, he was a friend. He listened to a lot of good music, he got me into a couple cool bands. He was the guy that if you needed him, he’d be there. I guess that’s what a friend does.


HOWEVER, I would say he was a pathological liar. That story with the guy tagging himself in Australia sounds like Ben a lot.

He never, ever showed me a picture of his wife - he also said he had a daughter, never saw her either. Though it’s not impossible, anyone can have a kid I guess, the fact that I knew nothing about them is suspicious.

The whole thing about where he worked is a mystery too. He said he worked in the music and film industry, but he never really went into depth. We often met up, but I never picked him up from work or whatever. Again, no pictures or anything. The only thing I ever saw was some IMDb credit, but again not a lot of info.

I still feel bad regardless. I think bringing up some of these crazy lies/stories makes me kinda miss him.

Oh and he also loved weed. He never brought any around, but he said he always smoked. I used to smoke cigarettes back then too, I don’t think he ever had a pack but he’d always bum mine.

I second that.

Might have left Florida and live happily in North Carolina, lurking in this forum.

Admins, check those IP addresses ha

What a thread. I'm only seeing the picture Themis posted for the first time, that's not how I imagined Ben to look like at all. He looks like the kind of guy who gets caught by rogue paedophile hunters on Facebook.

What do you think happened rolls? Someone indicated a fall. Do you think he done himself in or was it in accident? 

I had a few weird interactions with Ben over the years as well. He once told me to fly to New Jersey and he'd take me to a hockey game and we'd meet the players afterwards. I was figuring he may want to bum me or kill me. So I declined that invite. 

Another time he told me his job was in film but he moved into interning as a band manager. He was saying how'd he was banging HAYLIE Duff and someone from The Pussycat Dolls  :D

As others have said, this thread is amazing. Wish Themis would come back with more stories.

In fairness, as Sam previously pointed out, this might refer to his time as Uncle Fester in the Addams Family?

Been a year since I read this thread, some laugh out loud moments. It’s what Ben would have wanted.

He supposedly went to the Denver/Seattle Super Bowl in NJ. Then one day he just disappeared. Talked to a few people and they also had no info other than he had a fall at home and by the sounds of it, had an infection and that's what did him in.
