Who Can You Trust ?

I was sent an application form for one of Krystal Madison's events (Her real name is Crystal Garcia). The thing I noticed from my past online relationship with her is that The Festival of Witches and The Witch of Sleepy Hollow are not business entities. In Short Crystal is doing a DBA. After an extensive records search I have yet to find such filings. 
So Why this blog? 
Here is why !  An excerpt from her contract for vendors ..... 

                    Background Check Authorization Form

Consent for Criminal Background History Check


Each employee, contractor or volunteer to be screened must sign an authorization/waiver/indemnify form giving approval for Festival of Witches and its agents to perform a criminal background check. I hereby give my permission to Festival of Witches and its agents to obtain information relating to my criminal history record. The criminal history record, as received from the reporting agencies, may include arrest and conviction data as well as plea
Bargains and deferred adjudications and delinquent conduct committed as a juvenile. I understand that this information will be used, in part, to determine my eligibility for an employment/contractor (ed)/volunteer position with this organization. I also understand that as long as I remain an employee, contractor or volunteer here, the criminal history records check may be repeated at any time. I understand that I will have an opportunity to review the criminal history as received by Festival of Witches and its agents and a procedure is available for clarification if I dispute the record as received.
I also understand that the criminal history could contain information presumed to be expunged. I hereby affirm that my answers to the foregoing questions are true and correct and that I have not knowingly withheld any fact or circumstances that would, if disclosed affect my application unfavorably. I understand that any false information submitted in this application may result in my discharge. I, the undersigned, do for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators, hereby remise, release and forever discharge and agree to indemnify Festival of Witches and its agents, and each of their officers, directors, employees and hold them harmless from and against any and all causes of actions, suits, liabilities, costs, debts and sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever (including claims for negligence, gross negligence and/or strict liability of Festival of Witches and any and all related attorney’s fees, court costs and other expenses resulting from the investigation of my background in connection with my application to become an employee, contractor or volunteer/staff member.

So In short people you are asked everything everything from your SS# and if applicable she would ask you for your blood type .. 
Think of this 
If you did not know her company is may not by publicaly listed let alone Crystal Garcia is Krystal Madison Why are you giving your information over to someone who already defrauded a Ministry of $800 and apparently others in past venues . 
So if this information you feel comfortable giving away why did you not ask for the 3rd party link for the back ground service rather it is sitting on someone's couch ?  Yep you just gave your SS# addy and all the rest to a person not a company nor a registered background check company (security company bonded and insured )  This is why she has an Authorization/Waiver/Indemnity.

Congrats folks!!! you just signed away your soul (sort of speak )   time to go to the three credit agencies and check your score and while you are doing this lock up your SS# so no mysterious credit loans taken out with out your knowledge ...
