She then went to Go Fund Me to raise money for even more "relentlessly gay" lights, which cost about $10.
The donations poured in and when it reached over $40,000, questions arose as to who wrote the note, as some in the public noted the similarities between the note's writing style and Julie Baker's own writing.
Statement Analysis is done of anonymous threatening letters to reveal a profile of the author.
The profile revealed that the author was not a Christian concerned for the neighborhood, but instead the analysis revealed the author was gay female with strong anti-Christian prejudice,
poetic, and, in fact, did match the writing style of Baker, herself.
Statement Analysis agreed with the public perception: Julie Baker authored the note, herself.
Rather than deny this, she avoided police, initially refused to show them the note, and put the brakes on the donations. She blamed "hate" as the reason to stop taking more donations, as her own fear of being caught grew, and said the money was "enough."
Baltimore Internet Fraud investigators were able to obtain samples of her writing, including anti-Christian articles she had written which matched the writing style of capitalizing random letters. Media picked up on it too, and Baker faced a choice:
Refund the donations or face prosecution and a potentially lengthy prison sentence. It would not be challenging to convince a jury of her peers that she was the author of the note. She fraudulently claimed "death threats" with the same credibility as her initial claim of having "received" the note.
Baker is now asking that donators claim refunds as she has chosen to avoid prison. She is still being deceptive in her posting, blaming "taxes" as the reason. The website and all the potential sale of t shirts and trinkets comes to naught, as it was based upon a false report.
In her refund message, she does not ask for forgiveness from the community she scammed, but continues, instead, to deceive.
The deception continues.
