Sexual Harassment at the Vanguard Group Inc. in Arizona #me too

By the time July 2014 came around, I had already begun seeing the real Vanguard(the lies, secrecy, and deception). Without knowledge of the multitude of lawsuits the company faced, numerous incidents made it clear that racial discrimination was a systemic problem. Employees that brought light to any illegal issue were met with swift retribution, and I was no exception.

Despite everything I had seen, nothing prepared me for what took place at a company party for leaders in our department. My boss, who was required to take additional diversity training as a result of complaints I made to HR of racial discrimination, was responsible for bringing a game for entertainment. In retaliation of my complaints, he brought Cards Against Humanity. (see examples of game below). I can hardly find the words to convey what it was like feeling forced to endure repeated pornographic jokes and degrading racial slurs. It was clear that I was the target of several graphic cards describing a woman body.

As humiliating as it was to endure the game, the aftermath was just as shocking. For a company that professed to operate with the highest degree of integrity, there was tremendous debate among leadership over whether the game was appropriate, and if my reporting the incident to HR was the right thing to do. I later endured additional incidents for sexual harassment for reporting the incident to HR. Additional incidents are not described in details due to pending lawsuit.

Vanguard terminated my boss for appearances only, the shameful retaliation that followed clearly demonstrates Vanguard’s disdain for employees that speak up against illegal or unethical practices at the firm.

Exposing Phoenix Police Officer’s involvement in a protection racket for employers.

Violent crimes that occur at the instruction of or with the participation of the officer include rape. There was not crime too egregious, or lie to malicious for the men to commit in hopes of profiting financially. With a Prosecutor involved, and political connections, they assured participants that no investigation would take place and all perpetrators would avoid accountability.

As of today October 22, 2017. I have not spoken with a member of the media, or a member of law enforcement such as the FBI.



Email sent to Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton reporting Brain Schwartz’s involvement in recent assault of a woman.


Over the past six months, I sent several communications to Phoenix Mayor, Greg Stanton, informing him of Phoenix Police Officer, Brian Schwartz’s ongoing involvement in organized crime which targets my family and I. If Mayor Stanton’s office conducted an inquiry into my allegations, as of today October 21, 2017, I have not received a response, nor have I spoken with anyone at his office with the ability to review my allegations. Today, Mayor Stanton was sent another email informing him of recent incidents of assault which involved Schwartz, or occurred at his instruction. Portions of the email identifying participants can be found below, however, information detailing incidents of assault which are inappropriate for all audiences has been redacted for my protection . The incidents of Assault in reference occurred on October 5th and 6th.

Suspects in Assault efforts

In addition to Brian M. Schwartz and Brian T. Therrien, the following persons whose name remain unknown, were involved in the incidents of assault :

(1) A black male residing at 6122 N. 79st in Scottsdale who drives a black Honda Accord with a plate# BWW4705. The suspect is believed to be a felon with previous sex offenses.”

(2) A white male residing at 6124 N. 79st in Scottsdale and drives a 2014 Acua with a the plate number#103971A.

Physical Assault

“A private investigator by the name of Brian Therrien is working with Schwartz. Therrien, who is not a licensed investigator in Arizona, engaged in acts of physical assault while the victim was unconscious. Therrien worked with a male that resides at 6124 N. 79th in Scottsdale and drives a 2014 Acura with a plate number#103971A. During Both incidents, while James was unconscious, the men used an object to cause significant damage to plaintiff’s dental bridge at the front of her mouth. The bridge, which cost James 20k, has been the subject of previous assault efforts in an attempt to cause James financial loss. An object was used to saw the bridge which caused a fracture. From the fracture, it was clear that the sawing was done with the intent to remove a portion of the bridge. A space was also created at the front left of the bridge. The screws which are used to secure the bridge were loosened, which made it difficult for James to consume foods. As a means of threatening and intimidating James, she received several electronic notifications mocking the damage to her bridge, before and after the damage was done.”

Threats of other damage

“Over that last two months, James received several indirect threats of the damage that would be done to her car. Following the incidents of assault on October 5th and 6th, on October 7, James placed a poster in her car containing photos of Schwartz and Therrien. The poster alerted neighbors that Schwartz and Therrien instructed, or participated in assault efforts against James. On that same day, James’s car would not start. Upon inspection, It was clear that someone tampered with the wiring on the vehicle, and damaged the starter. James received several indirect communications in which the men took credit for the damage and threaten to do additional damage to another Vehicle James is currently driving. Mocking statements involved threats that James would need to take a cab.

The Scottsdale Police Department

“Previous reports of assault  to the Scottsdale Police Department have not been investigated. Schwartz, along with the prosecutor, advised the Scottsdale Police Department that no investigation was necessary. The FBI has jurisdiction over investigating corruption and organized crime, however, Schwartz and the prosecutor continue to use various fraudulent tactics to obstruct criminal investigations.

In Hiding
Suspects that have been reported to law enforcement and the media have begun parking their vehicles in an unknown location. Schwartz, in particular, is known to drive different vehicles and park in an unknown location. Even though there are photos that show Schwartz at 6124 N. 79 st, he remains unseen while conducting surveillance.


Arizona Officer instructs racial discrimination against a minor in public school.

Over the last few weeks, my son reported several incidents in which another student referred to him as a “nigger”, and other derogatory terms. After I became the victim of organized crime led by a police officer two years ago, my son became the victim of various orchestrated bullying efforts. Overtime, the faces of the students changed, but acting on the instruction of an adult to engage in racial discrimination remained consistent. The incidents always occurred during times that I disclosed information revealing organized crime or political corruption involving law enforcement or elected officials. Even though we know that greed and can cause a person to act in desperation, it remains shocking that an adult would instruct others to inflict harm on an innocent child. It’s even more shocking when the person accused of inflicting harm on a child is a sworn officer.

Sheriff kills himself during child sex probe

The Federal lawsuit alleging RICO made it clear that Schwartz’s crimes extended to my son’s school. Under the guise of conducting an undercover investigation, Schwartz instructed efforts which threatened the safety and wellbeing of my son, in hopes of controlling my actions. In addition to enduring repeated racial slurs, there were numerous instances where Schwartz attempted to use my son’s school to manufacture evidence to support his fraudulent claims. My son, who had no prior disciplinary actions such as detention, became the subject of increased security. We endured periods in which my son was repeatedly punished for minor offenses not punishable for other students. The incidents typically occurred in times where Schwartz was questioned about the allegations against him. For example, on October 3, 2017, my son forgot his badge at home. He was approached by the Vice Principal of the school and asked to obtain a temporary badge. He informed the vice principal that he would obtain a temporary badge after lunch, because if he did so then, he would miss lunch. The Vice Principal interrupted my son’s lunch upon observing that he had no badge, sent him to the office, and accused him of being defiant for waiting until after he ate to obtain a badge.

Such incidents became frequent in times where Schwartz was questioned for misconduct, and were clearly intended to generate documents to support a false narrative that my son was a “problem child”. Such incidents were carried out with disregard for his emotional and psychological being.

Racial discrimination on behalf of employers

Racial discrimination as a form of retaliation by the enterprise is a common occurrence. The discriminatory acts are carried out by members of the enterprise, which permits employers to deny involvement, thus avoid liability. The discriminatory acts are often egregious and involve offensive derogatory terms. In Summer of 2015 during a visit from my cousin living in another state, the words “nigger luvin cousin” appeared on my screen after a conducting a google search on “discrimination cases at Vanguard”. I was aware that I had become the victim of hacking, but it was the first incident revealing search engine manipulation, and one of the first incidents which produced physical evidence linking the hackers to Vanguard. A screenshot is available below.

*I should note that the website took me to a legitimate Vanguard page.


As of today October 21, 2017, I have not spoken with persons operating in an investigative capacity from the media or the FBI. I will continue documenting my experience, litigating in court, and reaching out to the media to ensure that my son and I enjoy our constitutional right of feeling safe, and the responsible parties are held accountable for their crimes.


RICO Fraud Scheme involving Arizona State Agencies.


Officer Brian M. Schwartz and former Officer Brian T. Therrien are fraudsters that have acted corruptly and engaged in ongoing organized crime under the guise of an undercover investigation at the expense of taxpayers. Their ongoing crimes include but not limited to bribery, blackmail, coercion, burglary, vandalism, assault, fraud, and theft. Both men are working with a prosecutor whose name and law enforcement affiliation is unknown at this time. However, prediscovery information suggests that he is employed by the Attorney General’s Office. The men belong to a broader government racketeering enterprise that operates secretly on behalf of corporations.

During the course of their ongoing RICO crimes, the officer operating under the name of Brian Schwartz used numerous state agencies to engage in various fraud schemes. The ultimate goal of each scheme was to manufacture evidence supporting his false claim of a drug addiction.

The use of Arizona Department of Child Services for fraudulent purpose.

If you have not had the opportunity to read the RICO claims involved in my case in Federal Court, you can do so here. My ex-husband, Marvin James, accepted gifts at the expense of taxpayers in exchange for assisting Schwartz in filing fraudulent claims in family court and with DCS. Immediately after going public about the allegations against Vanguard and their illegal use of law enforcement, my ex-husband was coerced into filing false claims in family court and with DCS claiming neglect. Even though DCS played no role in my case in family court, Schwartz used the false report he instructed my ex-husband to file to mislead members of the media. Specifically, Schwartz falsely informed members of the media that DCS removed my son from my home as a result of substance abuse. DCS has never removed my son from my home, nor have I ever been the subject of allegations with their agency involving substance abuse. Schwartz is an established pathological liar with complete disregard for the consequences his false information has on his victims.

Threats to use DCS for retaliatory purposes

After my ex-husband filed the fraudulent complaint with DCS, I received numerous electronic  threats that my son would be removed from my home, placed in foster care, and abused if I did not abandon my case against Vanguard. Having knowledge of the men’s involvement in a larger racketeering enterprise, I began my research on the removal of children by DCS from safe homes for retaliatory reasons, or for profit. It didn’t take very long to meet an overwhelming number of parents who were victimized by fraud schemes involving DCS. In fact, Arizona’s DCS had the highest removal rate of children in the U.S. Victimized parents were falsely branded as addicts or mentally ill to discredit their claims of fraud or other misconduct by the agency. Perhaps one of the most disturbing trends were parents who were forced to complete a psychiatric evaluation with predetermined doctors. The goal, of course, was to diagnose the parent with a mental illness that would support DCS’s decision to remove their child. Even though my circumstances differ from many of the parents I contacted, the tactics of fraud were the same. Schwartz made egregious false allegations regarding my mental health, and attempted to use tactics such as bribery and extortion to obtain documents to support his claims. On a number of occasions, he blackmailed a family member into making bizarre false claims that “I have imaginary friends, hear voices, and believe in alien life” Such ridiculous allegations are false and intended to derail and investigations.

The use of Arizona Public Schools for fraudulent purposes.

As the lawsuit indicates, under the guise of an undercover investigation, Schwartz attempted to use my son’s school for fraudulent purposes. Recent incidents of fraud, racial discrimination and retaliation involving my son’s school will be discussed in a separate blog.

Notifying Investigative Bodies and the Media.

The allegations within my blog are serious and impact not only the safety of my family and I, but Arizona citizens as a whole. As a result, I am persistent in my attempts to contact regulatory bodies and members of the media. Unfortunately, Schwartz continues to engage in fraud and other crimes to obstruct criminal investigations from moving forward. Recent efforts include blocking incoming calls from persons acting in an investigative capacity, making false statements regarding my mental health and substance abuse to the FBI and the media, and forcing family members to respond to investigative inquiries to stop or derail investigations. Members of the media and persons working for a regulatory organizations are encouraged to conduct face to face inquiries about the allegations within my blog. As of today, October 7, 2017, I have not had the opportunity to speak with members of the media or any person acting in an investigative capacity.

Other ways to contact me.

Schwartz’s fraud scheme can only succeed if he is able to obstruct my communications with persons acting in an investigative capacity. Persons seeking additional information about the allegations within my blog that are not able to contact me via phone, may contact me at a DCS Oversight Committee meeting. Our meetings are held online on Saturdays, and the next meeting will be on Saturday, October 14, 2017, at 4:00pm MST at the following web address:https://zoom.us/j/5830716745

Due to the fraud involved in my case, persons acting in an investigative capacity should also become familiar with my physical appearance. For identification purposes, the following video is a brief communication that was sent to DCS Oversight Committee.
