Kyle Johnson returns to set the record straight

For those of you that are unaware of who Kyle Johnson is, he is supposedly a 14 year old kid who I got the pleasure of being introduced to because he was randomly messaging people in Bills groups asking for money. His story was that he and his family were stranded 2 hours away from home and they were living out of their car, they needed your help… $30 for gas $30 for food. For over two weeks the Johnson’s were stranded just 2 hours away from home, even after talking to people that actually sent them money, Kyle still persistently messaged people asking them for money.

Even after I wrote an article calling him out for his behavior, Kyle still persistently messaged people asking for money. Except after I wrote my first article about him I received a jumbled mess of a response from his “mother” where she ranted and lied about her youngest son having a feeding tube. “She” also said something very interesting about how all of the Buffalo fans donated so much money to Darryl Talley, and it is then that I concluded these people were more than likely trying to tap into that kindness and generosity Buffalonians tend to showcase rather well.

I’m not going to lie, after I wrote my first article about what was going on and it made absolutely no impact on Kyle Johnson messaging even more people asking for money, I was a wee bit pissed. So I started digging in, talking to anyone I got word about being messaged by him. That is when I was introduced to someone who was also looking into the matter, Joe Signore had already gone so far as to contact Kyle’s father Robert Johnson.

The person who introduced us put us in a group chat so we could discuss our findings, the next day that person changed the name of the group chat to “Joe and James CSI” because we so feverishly discovered all sorts of information about the Johnson’s at a rapid pace.

Soon after I ended up contacting Robert Johnson myself and that was when things got really interesting. Robert would text both of us rather religiously and then me and Joe would send each other the screen shots of our conversations with him. More often than not me and Joe received different story’s and the constant milking for sympathy was at times just nauseating. Me and Joe made an excellent team, Joe has quite a knack for this sort of thing and it was truly awesome being able to work with someone like him on that story. If you’re reading this Joe, thanks for all the hard work and effort you put into bringing to light a very serious and scummy situation, the world truly needs more people like yourself.

The article that resulted from the work of Joe and myself turned out to be a pretty fascinating piece which you can read by clicking HERE I just read it again since first writing it and had forgotten just how completely f*cked the whole situation really was. The reason I was just reading it over again? Well… that’s because I was recently contacted on Facebook to inform me that not only was Kyle Johnson back, but he apparently had his own Facebook group…

I was in the process of finishing up my piece on the gofundme scammers from Baton Rougewhen I received this notification, so by the time I got around to looking into it they had already found his group. It wasn’t a Bills page, but it was a page that I was already a member of for quite some time now. I couldn’t believe it was his group and that he actually started, so I snooped around the page and found out that he was an admin, and he recently updated the rules to the group. An update that was sent directly to my notifications because I receive notifications every time an admin does something in this group, and believe me when I say if Kyle Johnson popped up in my notifications prior to this I would have definitely taken notice. So I feel confident in saying that Kyle Johnson was more than likely made an admin in the group recently…

My first thought was “no way! what are the odds that its the same Kyle Johnson?” so I perused his profile and his friends with the last name Johnson and there I found the only name I recognized was the original Kyle Johnson’s mother.  Well there really wasn’t much more that I needed to be convinced that this indeed was Kyle Johnson! So I went to that notification I received of him updating the rules, I liked it and then commented “Well look who it is? Sure hope you are behaving yourself these days Kyle Johnson”. Almost immediately he responded with “James, we need to talk”, and I mean it was a god damn lightning quick response. I told him that he was always free to message me and just as soon as I hit send he messaged me…

Right off the bat I’m a bit confused as to his reaction of me saying “good day sir”, I mean I had every intention of being civil and hearing him out. I was just a bit disappointed that it took me tracking him down in his new group in order for him to consider talking to me to be so important. Something I actually touch base on in our conversation…

Now that second statement by Kyle is extremely interesting, because I’m the one that made that phone call and I still remember how ridiculous it was, just like it was yesterday. First of all his sister is older than him, but the person who originally answered the phone was a very small child who sounded very much like a toddler. The phone was then picked up by who I am assuming is the mother, she asked who it was and I told her that I had a friend that was interested in getting her family some food. Her immediate response was to scream at me “you’re not even telling me who this is!” and then quickly hung the phone up on me. Also if you read my last article on this his sister very much knew about the Bills groups and what he was doing in them…

Lets forget about all that though, lets just move on to rest of our conversation…

This kid just doesn’t stop, first of all I did come to him directly and he responded by lying to me and then blocking me. Secondly he just said that he doesn’t lie and immediately follows that up by saying he lied about how long they spent in the car. The guilt trip is a nice touch, trying to make me think that because he was piece of shit I should let it go because I’m part of a fan base, a fan base that I very actively look out for against people like him. And that part about me saying he was some guy who messed with me before on a Bills page? I don’t even have the slightest clue about what he’s talking about, and after his explanation I’m still not entirely sure…

Its at this time that I had to take a small break from our talk as I was prepping an article, but I couldn’t help but notice him bring up Joe saying he was going to help and doesn’t know what happened there. Which makes me wonder if he actually did read my article that has him and his family so offended. Its also at this point that I again begin to question whether or not I’m actually talking to a 14 year old kid. “and I hope you understand”? Why should he hope I understand anything if he was actually telling the truth and I fabricated this whole elaborate story to make his whole family look bad? Anyways, lets go over more of the convo…

For some strange reason he insisted that he get my permission before explaining his side of the story that is supposed to completely explain how he was actually a victim and the rest of us (mostly myself) just had it all wrong and were harassing him over his misfortune. I had some time, hell even if I didn’t I still wanted to hear what he had to say, and that went as follows…

I have to admit, he’s good, but I’m not buying a word of it. He fails to realize how much time and effort me and Joe put into doing our homework on this before I wrote my story. Then after all that emotion and seeking for sympathy he says “But I want you to know I’m sorry if I hurt you”?!  Why would he be sorry? What the hell am I missing here? Well lets find out where things go from here…

Turns out I did write about trying to help them find shelter, so now I’m convinced they didn’t actually read my whole article. For those of you that don’t know, I helped the Johnson’s find a shelter close to them because Robert Johnson was constantly trying to guilt me and Joe about how hard it was to sleep in the car with 5 people, the baby was crying, his wife was crying, it was just a mess by the sounds of it. So I got on the google and found a place right down the road from them. Robert got back to me and tells me that the shelter will only take the wife and children, and the children refuse to leave him for a single night. So I called that very same shelter and they told me that not only did the Johnson’s not seek shelter there, but they would never tell the father to find somewhere else to stay. You see I did my best to try to actually help them and put a warm roof over their head and what I got in return was lies and deceit, so yeah you should definitely be sorry for that you lying pieces of shit. I was a bit pissed about that still so naturally I had to bring it up while I had the opportunity…

Can you believe the nerve of this “kid” telling me I need to “respect the truth”? Oh you mean because you are just oozing with it? Is that why after that last message was sent by Kyle he immediately blocked me and then kicked me out of his NFL Trash Talk group? Now I managed to get back into the group about 10 minutes later due to some other contacts I have, I posted a link to my article about Kyle Johnson and warned the group to beware of their newest admin. It probably took about 5 minutes before I got booted again along with the person who vouched to get me back into that group.

The next day I was contacted by someone who informed me that Kyle Johnson had deactivated his account and apparently gone back into hiding. Somewhere along the line though Kyle has not only reactivated his account, I am also no longer blocked by him. I am currently awaiting response as to why he blocked me and kicked me out of the group after our conversation.

There is one thing that I’ve learned while dealing with Kyle Johnson though and that is a 14 boy is a very dangerous and convincing weapon when it comes to women. Of all the people that I’ve seen defend Kyle and his cause, every single one of them has been a woman. Take for instance a female admin of that group who came rushing to his aid when news was breaking about who Kyle Johnson was…

Now if you DGAF what happened in the past, well you really should because it appears he still has no intention of being completely honest with people and still thinks what he did was ok. Scammers love to twist reality to excuse them from actually doing any wrong doing, the rules simply don’t apply to them for whatever reason they have determined they are excused. They feed on your emotions and pull your strings, and it works because you are a caring person who wants to help people. Sadly that makes you a highly targeted victim of those looking to exploit your good nature. Allow me to leave you with one final thought to ponder as you take all this in…
