Beware the Bullshit

Anthony J Grant: What’s been happening

Anthony Joseph Grant, thief and liar of Crossgar Downpatrick. Also Ballyheigue.

Nov 17: There are soooo many screenshots to sort through, from soooo many chats that it’s giving me a headache! Meanwhile, here’s a “Little Anthony” meme to enjoy.

Anthony J Grant
Anthony J Grant, currently using the name Antiono Grant Jr on Facebook. Beware.

Nov 11: A couple of visitors to the site have asked some questions that may be of interest to anyone reading this. First of all, they wondered why I was putting this out there when he still owes me so much money, why I was risking him not paying up. To be honest, there’s no risk … >>Read more

Nov 9: M has just gone to the hospital to pick up G, she is finally being discharged today. Turns out more surgery is possible, they were not able to remove all of the haemangioma. Looks like cutting out nasty shit is the order of the day for her. You know, like that nasty little Northern Ireland maggot commonly known as Anthony J Grant and his equally nasty, equally thieving girlfriend Karen Harris of Kerry, Cork, Ballyheigue and who knows where else. We have had 6 or 7 people make contact with questions regarding their scam, and G is happy to address those questions. She will likely do so here over the next day or two, depending on how she is feeling.

Stealing from a friend

Nov 7: A brief summary of Anthony J Grant’s behaviour: after being an online friend with someone for a long time (2-ish years maybe) he waited until she was grieving the death of her best friend, then slimed his way deeper into her life by telling her he was in love with her. Anthony (from Crossgar, Downpatrick) spent the next 4 months making plans to move to be with her. He allowed her to begin applying for jobs in other cities where he would have more chance of finding work as a chef, to start selling her belongings to make moving easier, took $1000 from her to move elsewhere in Ireland to start a job so he could save money to move here. He also begged her repeatedly to go there to be with him. She finally booked a flight to go there, and the day before the inquest into her friend’s death, and less than a week before she was due to fly to the other side of the world, he ghosted her. Why? He and Karen Harris had been in a relationship the whole time, they were just scamming money. >> Click here for a little more detail

And another little update:  G is back in hospital after passing out in the early hours of this morning. The infection that put her back in there last week has flared up again, and blood tests show she is also badly anaemic. So intravenous antibiotics and a blood transfusion, and she is going for a scan soon to make sure nothing sinister is going on with her liver after the surgery. We will keep you posted. LFK

Was that you Anthony J Grant?
Was that you Anthony J Grant?

Oct 28: Anthony J Grant, aka Antiono Grant Jr  isn’t happy about this website. And that has to be a good thing. It means he knows people will find out what he really his, and how he really operates. He hides his true, nasty, narcissistic, angry little man personality behind all the jokes and the make-believe friendship. Because of a job I used to do, I have contacts in the publishing world and when all this first happened, I was offered the opportunity to write the story. As a book. He was livid, and that was when he stopped even trying to pretend to  …  >>Read more

Anthony J Grant: A paranoid little man

OCT 25: I suppose it should come as no surprise that our light-fingered, nasty little Irish chef Anthony J Grant (aka Antiono Grant Jr) is telling lies about us (we’re psychos) but that will not change who he is: a thief, a liar, a disgusting little man who uses people, abuses their good will, and then cries about his imagined paranoia and his hatred for his father.

I am so angry that at the time when my lovely husband had just flown half-way around the world to get to his father’s bedside before he died, just a few short months after we lost one of our closest friends in an awful and tragic way, Anthony J Grant made up a lie about his own father being near death as a way to get back into Matty’s good books, and thereby get his claws back in to G. Even though he was back in the bed of his co-scammer Karen Harris, aka Karen Ní Earraí by that stage.

And then he even asked for more money. What sort of person does that? A devious, selfish, spineless little man with no moral compass, that’s who.

On a brighter note, the patient is doing better: she’s still not enjoying the pain meds but is taking them anyway so she can get out of there ASAP. Her veins are a bit shot after all the bleeding before, during and after surgery so they had to get a little creative in the placement of her new IV line after the last one tissued (top of her foot, she said it “hurt like a bitch but it’s okay”).

So Anthony if you are reading this, or even Karen, bear with us. G does have a lot more she wants to say, and she will say it.  LFK

Email from Anthony J Grant

Oct 23: The continuing story of Anthony J Grant who now goes by  Antiono Grant Jr, and Karen Harris, now known as Karen Ní Earraí. G had a rough day today. There is some concern that she might need another surgery, and they are keeping a close eye on her. She is still exhausted but did give me the thumbs up to publish a post she had pre-written. This one concerns and email from Anthony where he accuses us all of being mentally deranged, and also covers Karen’s role in it. She is not as innocent as they both try to claim.  LFK  >>Click here to read the emails

Screengrab of chat with Karen regarding Anthony.

Oct 21: This is just a quick update to say she is off the vent and awake. Very tired, absolutely wiped out, in a good deal of pain, still in ICU and according to the surgeon her condition is “serious” but that is certainly an improvement from yesterday’s “critical”.  LFK

Oct 20: We are in a holding pattern again. As some of you know, G had emergency surgery late last night/early hours of this morning.  I was another big surgery …  >>Read more

A timeline of Anthony Grant’s tactics

Oct 14: I have put together a quite brief timeline of how this played out. There’s so much more, the layers of lies not just while it was all happening, but even after it all came out.

Anthony lies constantly: he is incapable of telling the truth and is pissed that this site exists. I suppose, bringing his behaviour out into the open means that there’s a chance his next victim might realise what he’s up to.

And his excuse is “I don’t remember” … “I was so drunk I blacked out for the whole year”. But that’s just another lie, he has a habit of latching on to whatever is going on for other people and trying to do the one-upmanship thing. So his year-long blackout story came about after I suffered some memory loss due to a medical issue at the start of July.

However, a mutual friend, who was also conned by Anthony, deliberately fed me incorrect information while my memory was shot. Anthony was VERY quick to point out the things that were wrong, so there was absolutely nothing wrong with his recall of events. He just always likes to play the role of either victim (which he isn’t) or hard man (again, not that either).

He’s just pathetic little drunk who is incapable of being a grown up and supporting himself, so he latches on to women to bludge off them. >>Read the timeline here

Rehab, hiding, and calls from Karen Harris

Oct 11: Interesting times. He’s in rehab, cleaning up his act apparently. No surprises there, he was so desperate to stay out of jail and take no responsibility for any of his shit. Soon after his arrest at the start of July, he said he would do rehab if it meant he could stay out of jail, so this is probably another little ploy on his part. I also got another batch of random calls from Ireland again the other day. Whoever it is can feck off. Read more

Anthony J Grant now goes by Antiono Grant Jr,
Karen Harris changed hers to Karen Ní Earraí

Oct 3: Sorry, I’ve been knackered and struggling to get through this week. A bit of an update and will try to get this properly timelined over the next week or two and post it here. This isn’t a one-off situation from Anthony; I’m not sure about Karen. But people need to be warned about them both. Read more

Court update on Anthony J Grant

Sept 23: Latest from court is that Anthony has done what he does best … he’s run away and hid from the shit he’s done. An arrest warrant has been issued after he failed to surrender himself into custody as planned. Sorry for the delay, my phone died but we’re back in action now. I am catching a flight back home tomorrow and at some point over the next week or so, I will timeline just what happened with him. People like him can’t get away with shitting all over everyone. G

Sept 23, POSTING ON BEHALF: She’s still travelling and as of last night was having phone issues, possibly relating to data roaming. The plan is for her to be back in Belfast at some point later today in order to catch a flight back to London tomorrow so we will update as soon as we hear from her. LFK

Sept 20: I feel bad about not updating things here but am still away. I have been doing a whole lot of travelling, but am heading home next week. Right now I just feel tired and broken. But I have time coming up where I have nothing to do but rest and recover, so that might be a good time for me to put this whole sorry saga together in one timeline, so everyone can see just what really did happen.

Short-lived pity for my drunk little chef

At one point, when this first all blew up, I sort of felt sorry for him. I bought into the whole “poor Anthony, so drunk and had a breakdown” story.  Not now though, once I recovered and most of my memory returned (had a health situation that caused a seizure, which in turn caused some temporary memory loss), I started to see him more clearly.

But the most helpful, most mind-clearing part of it all was sitting down and reading through chat transcripts with him on Messenger and WhatsApp; with her on Messenger; and between both her and Matt, and Anthony and Matt, before and after all this came out.

When all pieced together you can really see the total manipulation, the lies, etc. There was no breakdown. Sure, he’s a drunk,  but he’s also a liar and a thief. And he knew what he was doing. They both did.

So I truly believe it is important for any other potential victims of these two dirty little thieves (Anthony J Grant, of Crossgar, Downpatrick; formerly of Belfast and elsewhere; and Karen Harris of Ballyheigue, his little Kerry co-conspirator) to know, to be prewarned.  Oh and Anthony: how the fuck do you think I found out where she lives? You certainly never told me, neither did she. I’d never heard of the place, but someone else did. >>Click here to get the latest from court. And find out about their “love story”!

Remand for Anthony J Grant

COURT, Sept 16: Remanded till Sept 23 for sentencing. Oh, and poor baby didn’t appear because of an accident. I’m back on track with my travels.

UPDATE, Sept 16:  I appreciate the messages guy, thanks for your support. He’s in court again tomorrow. Well, today now (it’s nearly 3am here). It’s been a not-quite-so-long day of travel today, but I’m where I want to be for now. Will update with court news when I can…right now I’m off to get some sleep. I’ve been slow on answering emails etc, but bear with me!

The many faces of Anthony
The many faces of Anthony J Grant.

UPDATE, Sept 10:  Going to be off the radar for a bit. Back in a week or so. Click here for the last update. Might not need my “source” to provide the update on his next court appearance on the 16th. But thank you for all your help! Hah, and he thinks he has “long fingers”! Anthony, you just manipulated other people to do shit and took the credit. I am more than happy to thank the people keeping me up to date on your court issues. Unlike you, my ego isn’t so fragile that I have to pretend to be something I’m not.

UPDATE, Sept 9:  I have a bit of a busy time coming up … hopefully I’ll be on a plane in a few days, then after that there’s treatment/surgery to get through. But I did take the time to talk to my lawyer again today. If I was as much of an asshole as either of those two (Anthony J Grant and Karen Harris) I could really go for the jugular.  >>Read more

A leprechaunUPDATE, Sept 7:  Got an email from “Little Anthony” as M calls him, bitching about this site. Apparently we’re all batshit crazy. As I said to him, I suppose given his track record, telling the truth probably does seem a little crazy.  One “interested reader” has made contact asking about proof. >>Read more

Working hard? Not Anthony, aka Antiono Grant Jr

UPDATE, Sept 4: How about comparing a timeline. Anthony Grant was busy working hard to save money for his big move to the other side of the world, but he had already run home to Karen Harris in Ballyheigue because actually working for a living was too much for him.

UPDATE, Sept 2: Date set for next appearance, he’s back in court September 16. The fake “Mr Nice Guy” carried on being oh-so-pleasant and full of the joys of life when asking for money again on March 25. The ultimate insult? That came after I agreed to send him the cash. Click here to see what this dishonest, thieving little ray of Irish sunshine had to say.

He had no shame in asking for money. Mr Nice Guy … but while asking for this so he could go start a job in Cork to save money to pay for his flight, he was actually on his way to Killarney to be with Karen. Click here if you want to see her response to this information in the latest post in the blog.

The fact that someone has posted on the forum that he has not been discrete with photos is no great surprise I suppose. He didn’t even have the decency to deny it, just spouted forth more of the usual: tell Matty this, tell Matty that, that’s not wise, etc. Tell him yourself, I’m not your secretary. You fucking coward. G
