I’ve received the go ahead to post Hope Jackson’s mugshot and her other information. This is public information. Hope Jackson has pending criminal charges against her in Arlington, TX for scamming the sweet and talented Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. She also has pending charges in several
other states for theft by deception / fraud as she has also scammed many other people/groups with Christi's story.
She has apologized to me and said she was sorry. Of course I could not respond, but in my head I was thinking, “You are only sorry you got caught.”
Much to our shock and surprise, we learned about this situation last fall when a group she had been scamming over a period of time did their own investigation, which led them to Christi's website. Detectives have been working hard putting many different cases together. For years Hope Jackson Williams has been taking Christi’s photos off of this website and then pretending to be me to scam others (mainly famous people, but not always) by saying Christi is her dying daughter. She has used a voiceover software of some sort so the sweet people she is scamming actually think they are talking with Christi at times. She has changed our names and has our story down really well. As one detective jokingly told me, “I think she knows your story better than you do.”
I’m just sickened and saddened that this has happened and that others were hurt as a result. This website was never set up to do anything like that and I hope all of the good people in the world keep doing nice things to help others, truly in need. The teacher in me is glad that Shayla could learn a life lesson through all of this. She tends to be naive. Shayla now knows that most people are good, but not everyone is and some who look innocent are far from that. When the girls were little I would tell them if they ever got lost to go to someone who looked like a mommy and ask for help. Now I keep looking at this mugshot of a mommy and think, “Oh, I’m so glad my girls didn’t go to her for help – yikes!” LOL! My heart absolutely breaks for her poor children. I am so glad that I was richly blessed with a wonderful mother in my life.
