Staff Sgt. Robert Bales’ elderly victim, Gary Liebschner

American psycho, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, accused of slaughtering 16 innocent Afghan men, women and children in a village in Kandahar province, is a con man who took the life savings life savings of an elderly Ohio couple in $852,000 in AT&T stock and through a series of trades, reduced its value to nothing.

“He robbed me of my life savings,” Gary Liebschner of Carroll, OH, told ABC News.

Financial regulators determined Bales “engaged in fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, churning, unauthorized trading and unsuitable investments,” according to a report on Bales filed in 2003. Bales and his associates at the Ohio brokerage firm MPI, were ordered to pay Liebschner $1,274,000 in compensatory and punitive damages but have yet to do so, this according to Liebschner.

The Ohio retiree recalled Bales as a “smooth talker.” Asked if he regarded Bales as a con man, Liebschner said, “You’ve hit the nail on the head.”

    The great American patriot, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who joined the military to fight terrorists after 9/11 was really just trying to avoid prison time he violated SEC laws and robbing a retired couple of everything they worked for. Interesting. Maybe the recruiters need to do a better job of checking backgrounds before they let someone join the service?

  2. feminazi says:

    The military recruits former law enforcement personnel who were fired for breaking the law and for violating civil rights. Apparently, the all-volunteer military is so desperate for bodies that they will let rapists and murderers enlist.

  3. Brigadoon says:

    Mom, apple pie, the American flag and defrauding an elderly couple of everything. How patriotic!

  4. TOM339 says:

    The military is determined to portray Robert Bales as a saint.

    Thanks for providing your readers with the real facts of Bales’ character and the reason he joined the military. Service to country? Bullshit. He was trying to avoid the court order of to make this elderly Ohio whole again.

    Bales is a bastard. Enjoy prison.

    real fucking nice

  6. Harry says:

    Classy guy. Ripping off the elderly. What a douchebag.

  7. The Real Adam says:

    The story of Robert Bales just gets stranger and stranger.

    It’s clear, he is not the fine, upstanding man his family, neighbors and military associates claim him to be. In fact, he’s the opposite.

    How do you steal from a senior citizen? Says all I need to know about Robert Bales character of lack thereof. He’s a scumbag.

  10. DMason says:

    Bubba is waiting for Bobby.

  11. Marcus Ybanez says:

    The military will enlist anyone. Wife/girlfriend abusers, men who violate SEC rules.

    Wow. Maybe the military will next enlist convicted child molesters and murders? They seem to have no standards in the all-volunteer service. They sad thing is, Bales is a pox on the entire military. Even the decent men and women.

  12. Randy Arroyo says:

    Marcus – Crazy cops have been recruited by the military. It’s a mess.

  13. Mary says:

    Years later and Bales is in Levenworth and the Leibschner’s still haven’t received a single payment and the sad thing is Mr. Leibschner knows he’ll never see the money that is due to him and probably his estate wont either!!!! I know the couple and they are the most sweetest, kindest couple there is!!!!!
