What's wrong with the article? The journalist talks about two sides, even though Reynolds confessed to a crime he committed and cheated other people who know very well that he is a crook. If Reynolds wants people to believe his stupid propaganda he should get his friends to prove it or hire detectives - they will pay, but he can't because he went to jail for a crime he committed and never gave up being a con artist after escaping, no matter how hard he and she try to rationalize what they do to other people, including defamation against those they cheated.

I personally know that these two are liars and cheaters and will steal anything from anybody. They are total con-artists and will lie to you about anything. Every single person that has tried to help them, they stole from. I know them, and they are the scum of the earth. I say hurray that Chance (by the way, his real name is John Brently Reynolds, hers is Celina, goes by Neteri) got caught. I laugh every time I think about him going to rot in jail. I wish they would get her too because she is worse than he is. She is the ring leader. Don't believe his long sad story. It is all fiction. He stole from everyone. His sweet little daughters are as big a liars as they are, they have been taught well. They are carbon copies of their momma. They only know how to do one thing well and that is ask you for money and then cheat you out of the rest of what you have. If you let them in just a teeny bit,,, they will swallow you up and leave you feeling like a real sucker. US MARSHALLS??? Why are you not going after "Neteri" she HELPED HIM ESCAPE!!!! This guy is where he needs to be, IN JAIL,,, They government didn't do him wrong, he cheated and got caught! I cant say how happy I am, enough, that he is in jail. Justice has been served! Neteri, have fun alone now! I hope they get you next!

If you personally know them why don't you admit who you are? How absurd is that when vile things come out of someone's fingers on a keyboard and they are too ashamed of their own words to own them?

I myself have known them "personally," for many, many, many years and have never seen evil intention or ill will come from any of them.

Elva,,, You must be a relative. No one else defends them. And seeing the state you are in, I am sure you are related. Vile? These two are downright evil. I could go on about these two but quite frankly, they are dangerous. Give it up, No one belives their long sad story. They are criminals. And liars. Either you were suckered or you're one of them.

Since you people have responded I've encountered two other people who were ripped off to the tune of amounts you likely won't see in your lifetime Elva. Those two will stop at nothing - why should people reveal their names and have such scum take revenge? He can be violent, he can be scary, he has hard and evil eyes, he's a psychopath. She is an ignoramus with no education, she worked as a table dancer - borderline hooker or more - and thinks it's her right to cheat people who have more than she. They kept their kids out of school for the sole purpose of isolating them. If they didn't do anything to you, fine - not yet maybe. But they did do stuff to other people and we are speaking from first hand. They are just dirt, scum and evil.

I have known Chance and Celina for 3 years here in Mexico. After Chance was taken away to finish his jail term, Celina started making it on her own doing HONEST work!

She is a hard working, caring person. She is a rare jewel of a friend, too!

I have not been conned by Chance and Celina. I have not been asked for money. When I offer financial to help, I am turned down. There is a LOT of pride in this young lady and a LOT of loyalty to her family and close friends.

I also agree with Elva K. If you have something to say, and it is the truth, why don't you put your name up. No name lacks credibility because they don't have enough guts to show their name!

Chance is in jail. He is serving his term. Celina is working and making it on her own. Why don't you keep your foul mouth shut and let them go on with their lives. They aren't doing YOU (or anybody else) any harm.

Those of us who are close to Celina KNOW that your negative comments are coming from someone who doesn't know her! You just have nothing better to do than degrade people!

I'm writing on behalf of my entire family only to say that who ever Mr. or Mrs. Portland OR may be.. Do you not have anything better to do than sit around and think up what ever obscure lies you can about me and my family..
My mother a prostitute or table dancer??? She wont even wear a bikini... You have absolutly no evidence of anything you say.. Your obviously insane and a very sad, sad, person.. My advise to you is to get a real life.. Preach some information that could actually be usefull and remembered rather than forgotten, because no body is listning to you.. I read everything you write but what significance does it have... You are alone on everything you say.. you say you know all of these other peope that agree with you?? Who and where are they...??
One more thing as for Lolita.. I have no idea who you think you are. I certainly have never heard of you.. There for you have absolutly no right to think you can say anything about me or my family.. Get a life of your own people because this one is mine and my family's.
PS.. Look up Elva.. she is no family member of mine.. Only a dear friend..

Everything and I mean everything, that no name in Portland is saying is absolutely, unequivocably correct. I do know them first hand, have seen how they live, have seen what they stole, have been stolen from by them, have seen them take advantage of numerous people who benevolently tried to help them. Ask them about all their "stories" about the guy they stole money from an orange grove in Belize, and then ran to Guatemala, and "fought off banditos on her horse with a sword"! At least that's what they told people. HA! I have had to personally clean up after their filthy waste and flea riddled kids and dogs. One of their daughters appeared to be a pretty good little singer, however will defend her mother and father probably to their death. "His own father" said was a sociopath, and this being first hand knowledge, abused his own father financially and any and every way he could. His father bailed him out of one mess after another for years and years, and "Neteri" vilified Chance's father, who was an extremely adored and prominent physician.

Remember, "no rest for the wicked". They will try to help him escape again if given any opportunity.

Watch out Mr. Prison Warden!

Neteri, I am pretty sure you know who this is and I won't be your first guess. You're lucky US Marshals didn't get you as well, as you certainly deserved it. Mexican citizen, my ass!

The People who are saying shit about my friends dont even know them, you guys are just jealous. worthless and insecure disgusting shit-heads. I am a full believer of karma and watch your backs cause you'll get stabbed hard. How dare you talk about their kids like you know them! you know nothing about them or how they are living their lives. What did they ever do to you? Its beyond belief that you would dare to insult a family this way. What if someone insulted your kids you little bitches! This goes to everyone that has insulted the reynolds family.

I wanted to extend a personal thank you to Neteri and her entire family. In the 20 years that I have known them, I have witnessed a loving, caring and humble family who would and have done anything for others. Thank you for being there for me when I needed you and for everything you have done for me. I am eternally grateful to all of you.
As for Portland, I say "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone". Sounds to me like you have alot of forgiving to do. Harboring unforgiveness is only hurting you. God bless you!

Wow!! I am completely baffled, truly. I am extremely surprised at the amount of bitterness and wickedness one single person can harbor. Isn't it difficult for you to sleep at night? Please understand that I am NOT referring to the Reynolds family. I am referring to all of you who clearly feel wholly threatened by the mere existence of a family. It is entirely asinine that anyone could spend so much time hating. In fact asinine is probably to big of a word for your ignorance to understand. It means extremely stupid or foolish.
The Reynolds family went out of their way many many times to help those in need. I'm not going to say that I was unaffected by the Reynolds. When they left I was devastated. But instead of being angry or bitter, I was worried. Sad, that such important people to me were now gone from my life. I am so thankful to have known such exceptionally, sincerely nice people. Its to bad that you immediately believe what you hear and are so quick to judge. You have truly missed out on a blessing.

I just so happened to stumble across this and quite frankly am quite embarrassed for some of you and the things you have said.

My heart goes out to the Reynolds children - I'm sorry for all you have gone through these past few years. You deserve all the happiness in the world and I'm sure you will have it.

Unfortunately, Chance Reynolds obviously suffers from major mental health issues and should have received help years ago. He has hurt many people during his life, well before the Beaver Creek Ranch incident. It baffles me that while he was being so "philanthropic" to others in his South Dakota community, he let a son and adopted daughter (whom he left as small children) live without child support and a father. This man should not be trusted ever again. His mental health is poor and secrets vast.

Your information is your own lie you live with.
You know that "the son" was in contact with him asking for a dna test and that Chance also wanted that for "the son". You also know that the reason he left had nothing to do with the children. You also know who's mental health is really in poor condition. Point the finger at yourself before you point at others. Your secrets are very dangerous to yourself and to others.

The issue isn't how nice the Reynolds are...or how loving...or how nasty or mean. The issue is "did they cheat people"? There are many of us who say they were lied to and cheated. Whether Celina now works honestly or not, or ever did, is beside the point.

What possible motive would those us cheated by them have to make such claims? We ALL began as their trusted friends...and a con job requires, it demands, that the person be nice. How else could it possibly work?

Nice is not the point. People were cheated, they were lied to and some of them came near to physical harm. The record is quite clear on that.

As for our motive for writing about such things, even after all this time, is to spread the word so that others don't get hurt the same way.

I'm glad any or all of them have turned a new leaf and are honestly employed. If it sticks and is true, I won't mind the money I lost.

It costs money to raise good human beans.

"devastated" How?

Did you lose money to Reynolds?

What connection and relationship did you and your family have to the Reynolds?

to the morons defending Jack and Celina:
You obviously have been conned by this couple. I knew them for years as well as their daughters. The girls are in total denial about how messed up their parents are but they are bright, good hearted young women and I resent whoever said they were just like their parents. Jack and Neteri, on the other hand, are some really terrible people who rob, lie, intimidate and cheat their way through life. I liked them too. Until they ripped off several close friends of mine, threated bodily harm against others and took out loans they never intended to pay before skipping town. They can go to hell.---Girls, you should come to terms with these FACTS. Or you will be pulled down by them laterr in life.
