Leave her alone
I wonder if you'd champion her as strongly if she'd stolen YOUR identity, or forged thousands of dollars of YOUR checks, or ruined YOUR credit. How lenient would you be then, hmm? Do you have any idea how LONG it takes to straighten out things with banks and credit card companies and collection agencies when your identity has been stolen? "she did something wrong" is putting it mildly. She committed SEVERAL FELONIES against innocent, hard working people. They've a right to be pissed off. So be her friend, that's wonderful, but keep your bank info and SS number hidden well ;)

Enough - You offensive comment to Truth is inappropriate and says something about yourself in needing to resort to name calling. You were not the victim of your so called "friend". She did not make restitution to those of us who were her victims. She did not compensate ME for the time it took to straighten out the mess she made in my life. YOU should get over YOURSELF being her champion. I'm glad to hear that she has turned her life around. Nice to think there will be no more victims. Maybe she'll be the victim of identity theft and know what it's like. Her sentence was far to mild. Unfortunately anything we write won't affect her so telling us to leave her alone is ridiculous. She's a crook and a trash. I didn't see any public apology for her actions. Birds of a feather?????

There's only ONE person who would remember that story, since I've never told anyone else, and that would be the one and only Desiree, aka "enough" . Just as you knew me from the story I told, I know you from your words and the fat joke.

As far as commenting here? This is a public forum and anyone can offer their opinion, or facts about the topic. I think what angers you the most Desiree, is that I'm telling the TRUTH . Can you say the same? You claim you're moving on with your life, you've turned it around? You've paid back the thousands of dollars you've stolen from those poor victims and you've righted the wrongs with all the credit card/gas/electric/collection companies in their name? Or by 'paying restitution', did you mean you spent a small amount of time in Framingham?
You've turned your life around? Did you forget what you did in June? Filing a false report in an effort to ruin a life, a career? That's called defamation of character, and it's punishable by the law. You attempted to slander a name...for what? "To get back at her" you told the police. You call that "turning your life around"? I call it *the same old Desiree*.

I did a search to see if I could find the full article and found this forum along with one of the unfortunate victims who had questions, so I decided to answer Dtg in hopes to put some fears of theirs to rest . I'm glad I did. I've also since found the article in it's entirety and I was floored at the level of deceit and the many counts of indictment.
When I ran into you that day at the courthouse, Desiree, I couldn't have been more surprised, I truly thought when I moved away from you twelve years ago, I'd thankfully seen the last of you, but that day in court, didn't you tell me a part of your parole condition was that you weren't allowed any kind of personal social networking or anything that had possible personal info? That's why you told me you hid your facebook under a fake name. So why are you still active as Stacie Bishop? Are you allowed to be commenting on here as well?(they can trace the IP address you're using here too you know) I wonder just what the parole conditions entail in full, time for some investigating perhaps?
I suggest you practice what you're pretending to preach. Move on.

When the police went to her house they found something like 500 credit cards that she had ordered under other people's names. She applied for 5 in my name but fortunately it was stopped. She had gotten one and used it at a gas station but it got canceled when they were informed that it was stolen. There were about 25 healthcare providers whose identities she stole from Multi-Plan, a managed care company. One of those victims was able to get some action as it was across state lines. I tried and got no where. I even called when I tracked down her phone number and she answered the phone and claimed to be her sister and that Desiree was out shoveling snow. You'd think that the call would have scared her enough to stop, but she did not stop and continued to find more victims. I don't recall where I filed her court case which was sent to me by the states attorney of massachusetts. If I ever find it I can fax it to you Truth. I was entitled to receive it because I was one of the victims. When I spoke to the states attorney he said that she had opened a checking account in my name. Luckily she got stopped before she did damage with that and had bounced checks that people would have come after me. Sociopaths do not have a good expected track record of change. If there is any change it is only because she is afraid of getting caught rather than feeling remorse. If given the chance she will steal again.

Desiree - where is an apology? I don't see any apologies to the people you actually injured. Telling me you feel bad and have remorse. No "I am sorry" to the victims. I am glad you feel bad. You should feel bad. And you should be living with your mistakes everyday. You had a chance to stop when I called your place. One would think that it would have scared you enough to stop. But no, you continued to attempt to exploit people and take advantage of your job at Multi-Plan. Frankly I think you only feel bad that you were caught. I don't hear anything that you have a sense of your impact on people.

This isn't your problem so shut your mouth and don't comment on your hater hear say BS... Stick a sock in it unless you have proof to back the BS you're saying... When you talk lies about someone to make yourself feel better about who you are, it makes you look stupid! So keep your mouth shut on crap that is would be in my book your hear say!

I know this is a hard thing to recover from and it's not easy.. and I feel for you but people who kill from drunk driving get another chance and so do killers and the lowest of the low lives... Remember in god's eyes are were made just like him, we make mistakes and no one is prefect.. to forgive is part of life.. and yes to forget takes much time! No one is asking anyone to forget but forgiving over time can be done, one day!

Wow after reading all the comments written, I can see the person who was hurt by this being upset... but the hater who did nothing but put some BS out there just to make her look bad and spill crap that hasn't been proven to be true! And comment on what she has done.. can you look in the mirror and say you never did anything wrong to another person. I think outsiders have a right to voice concerns but I think for those who don't know her from a hole in the wall remember this people talk.. stuff gets said and hurt friends tend to lie, or everyone wants their 15 mins of fame! Don't believe everything you read unless you have proof and know it for sure! Just my thoughts on this.. Sorry to all who suffered... May everything work out for you!

Well she never sent me a letter of apology so if she told you that she did she did not tell you the truth. She did rip off the electric company. She put the electric bill in my name and they sent me a bill for $1000. She didn't pay it for a year. Then I had to spend time proving that it was fraudulantly opened in my name and that I lived elsewhere and had my own electric bill. She opened 5 credit cards in my name and used one of them but fortunately they were caught in time to keep 4 of them from ever being sent to her and the one she used (at a gas station) was canceled as soon as they were alerted by me. After she was arrested and I spoke to the States Attorney in Middlesex county I found out that she had opened a checking account in my name as well. How many bounced checks I do not know. She got people's personal information from her job at Multi Plan - a managed care company for health care providers. She stole the identity of over 20 people with the last name of Gordon. A collection call came to me looking for Desiree Gordon and it wasn't until I got off the phone did I realize that they were looking for THAT Desiree Gordon. I asked my daughter to search her name on Facebook which is how we found the link to the article about her arrest. That is how I found this web-site and the SA sent me details of the case since I was a victim. SHE DID NOT SEND ME A LETTER OF APOLOGY, not apologize when she showed up here. No it is not worth my time but I think the record needs to be straight.

There is proof that she did what she was accused of doing. The police found 500 credit cards in different people's names that she got from her job. All health care providers. Many people suffered and had to spend many hours correcting the injustice to them from companies attempting to collect the debt on these cards. Until it happens to you, you have no idea how it impacts on your life. I was one of the luckier ones in that one of the credit card companies called me asking if I had applied for a new card because they could see that I had a card with them that I didn't use. Thankfully it stopped the part that was credit card fraud. I don't sit around "hating" her. Only when I am alerted that someone has posted something do I take a look. I hope she has learned her lesson and doesn't mess up anybody else's life. That anyone wants to defend her is beyond me. It could only happy by someone who has never been impacted by this kind of crook.

What prompted you writing a defense of her? If you had been the victim of a crook I am not sure you would care whether someone thought that person was a good person. Lots of people go through hard times and do not choose to do criminal acts which impact negatively the lives of other people. I hope that she has gotten some serious therapy. Perhaps when she has made amends to everyone of the 500 people whose identities she stole then we will believe that she has changed. Stopping because she was caught is different from stopping because you realize that you are doing something that is WRONG.

I am getting tired of the bashing, I am a changed person, ok, I have learned from my mistakes, and no its not because I was caught,

I made alot of bad choices I am not proud of, and If i could go back in time and change them I would but i cant, I can only learn, and move on, people can change.

There is alot to the story you do not know, and I am not going to reflect on that, because its a part of my past.

and really 500 people you seriously need to get your story straight, Stop living in the past, all the negativity you have DTG seriously Your blowing this out of context, If you mad yes I can understand that, but stop living in hate, and start to forgive, and be happy, Hate is not a good look for anyone
