Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I realize that this site is for expressing business-related complaints but I feel a strong need to post this as I suffered a great financial loss. When I was on active duty, I personally lost over $40,000 when (then) Captain Matthew Fitzgerald threatened me to do something totally against US Army regulations which he was totally aware. This was solely for his own self-serving and career enhancing reasons as flaunted on his annual evaluation report which I have a copy.
First I reported this to his Army lawyer superiors. One of his admittedly personal friends did the faux â€œinvestigationâ€ and found no wrongdoing. Then I reported him to his licensing state bar and he flagrantly lied about what happened when formally questioned in writing. His licensing state bar said anyone else would have been disbarred for what he did (given the 1-inch thick of evidence provided against him) but their hands were tied since â€œthe US Army lawyers as a federal agency were protecting him.â€
So I tried to take Fitzgerald to court but could not literally even get my foot in the door because of something called the Feres Doctrine which has been around since 1950. What even adds more insult to my financial injury is that Fitzgerald got promoted to Major just shortly after this incident. In fact, he continues to serve as a lawyer in the US Army today. He should not be on active duty â€“ he should have been disbarred. Go to Facebook under â€œFeres Doctrineâ€ and see the timeline.
