I know Karen Heartstein. She was very mean to people she came in contact with. She made evil threats of harm or payback, for betraying her, which was all in her mind.
She would befriend you, she can be very charming,
snd witty, and acts concerned. Remember she fooled a lot of people over 200, i think there was much more.
She is evil, vindictive, made lots of threats. I have some saved on a tape recorder.As do many people I know of at least 15 people she became hateful to.
I have emails printed out from her, that are like and inch thick.
I think she really needs mental help as well.
She is most likely planning her revenge when she gets out.
I feel sorry for her, but more sorry for the people she screwed out of money and the people who she became abusive with.
She is a delusional, paranoid, cunning, and extremely bright when it comes to conning people.

I feel for Karen. Way too harsh of a penalty. She is a beautiful woman, that feels remorse for her mistakes. She got in too deep and got scared. I love Karen, even though I don't know her, and wish her happiness, and early freedom...

I know her well too. Although what you say is true, it's a half truth.
There is another side to her, one you haven't seen, one that a couple hundred people would say she is not nice. She is mentally ill and doesn't think so. She should get help, but she won't.
She is one of the meanest people I have ever met. She has screwed lots of people for nothing.
She is paranoid and very persuasive be aware. She is good at being a con remember that.
