    Ms. Tina Pohlman from La Crosse, WI who is the President, Executive Director, Co-Founder of the APS Foundation of America, Inc (a Nonprofit Health Agency). ~ Ms. Tina Pohlman and Ms. Alice Carey are Partners and Lead Organizers of the Well Documented HATE Campaign Against Candy Waters who has autism is nonverbal

    Ms. Tina Pohlman and her Minions follow the Waters family around in facebook groups for two years now using fake identities and attacking them on the post of their daughter's paintings that they are proud to share. Also, Ms. Pohlman and her Troll Team have created many Fake Blogs, Videos. facebook Pages, Memes & etc filled with Lies & Hate about Candy Waters

    Ms. Pohlman and her Accomplices always say to “Google” Candy's name and you will find their Fake Hate Blogs that they have created to belittle and discredit her because they are extremely jealous of Candy's popularity and talent. Sick Trolls!!!

    Ms. Tina Pohlman and her Accomplices always call Candy's art a “SCAM” in order to discredit her because they are jealous of her talent & popularity.

    Candy's Art is not a Scam!!! Candy has autism, nonverbal and she paints every painting on her facebook page with a little help from her friends (Just Like The Beatles Said). The Waters Family use many different painting techniques with Candy (original art, collaborative…etc) Candy's family are honored and proud to be her humble helpers.

    “I Have Seen Elephants Paint Better And They Were Recorded. And jealous, not a chance”

    -Ms. Tina M. Pohlman's thought about Candy Waters painting style ~ Very Sick Person!!!

    Doxxing/slander/defamation/exploitation

    Ms. Tina Pohlman who is the President, Executive Director, Co-Founder of the APS Foundation of America, Inc is Cyberbullying our 16 year old disabled girlnamed Candy Waters. Ms. Pohlman's behaviour is extremely unprofessional, immature & SICK!!!

    Please tell Ms. Tina Pohlman to stop harassing a 16 y/o disabled girl named Candy Waters and take down her Hate Sites that she and her friends have created to belittle and discredit Candy Waters. This will never end until she does this.

    Cynthia 10, is your post about your obsessive grudge harassment smear campaign targeting Tina, or a verifiable scam?

    The APSFA has no records of a donation from you under any of your stalker alias or true name Sandy W.

    In fact, you're only posting here as a means to stalk and harass people who have questioned your financial exploitation of your severely non verbal autistic child's name.

    Your alleged scam complaint here about the APSFA is a direct retaliation at Tina, soley because a group of people question your business integrity by you running an art business using your disabled child's name and disability to promote sales of images that she is incapable of creating.

    Do you have evidence to support your claim of how the APSFA, a patient run non-profit has scammed you? Please upload proof of the financial scam that you experienced with the APSFA.

    Thank you for providing third party proof of your ongoing internet stalking.

    True, the APS Foundation will get some 1 star complaints, but they are very few compared to the overwhelming number of 5 star compliments it gets. Even the most honest organization can’t make everyone happy. That is how it is in this dog eat dog world. APS’s 4% of 1 star ratings is minimal next to your “Unspoken Gift” book on Amazon, of a whopping 57% 1 star ratings and 4% of the 2 and 3 star ratings. You should be so lucky to have only 4% 1 star ratings, Cynthia 10 aka Sandy.

    In the case of APS Foundation of America, there were disagreements which can’t be avoided sometimes. But in your case, Cynthia 10 aka Sandy, you run a scandalous business and continue to do so despite the overwhelming evidence. See the difference, Cynthia 10?

    Anyhow, the burden since Cynthia 10 aka Sandy, is doing the accusing, is on Cynthia 10 aka as Sandy, to prove that APS is a scam and not just reading the lies of someone that is not happy with APS. Come on Cynthia 10, post your proof? We presented our proof that you are running a scam but you fall far short of proving that APS is running a scam.

    Regardless of the 4% 1 star ratings, APS of American has been given a Gold Star Top Rating. Don’t you wish you can claim the same, Cynthia 10 aka Sandy? So stop your smear campaign against APS of America and clean up your own scandalous act.

    @Cynthia 10 Post your PROOF of this alleged wrongdoing, or else kindly shut your mouth. You are obviously just trying to start meaningless whisper campaigns as retaliation for people questioning your fake art child exploitation scam. To make these kinds of false accusations is also a crime. Remember that when you are arrested.

    YOU are exploiting your non-verbal, disabled teen daughter for financial profit. WTF is wrong with your brain that you think this is ok? Instead you're on this site, trying to stir up completely fabricated claims against a disabled woman's non-profit organisation?

    Shame on you.

    Sandy as of yesterday is spamming the Chicago BBB with her Zazzle Store(Click on Website button). It went from the "Candy Waters Autism Artist" facebook page to the "Candy Waters Autism Artist" Zazzle Store, selling her fraudulent art. I hope the Chicago BBB don't allow this [censor] because I didn't think a person is suppose to set up a store there. But, we shouldn't put anything past Sandy since she has spammed 1000s of websites for the sole purpose of selling her fraudulent art. She has Chicago down for the city where she lives instead of Park Ridge.

    @Trumpless And besides, what does selling her fraudulent Zazzle art has to do with In-Home Autism Therapy anyhow? I look for Sandy to make more changes to her BBB page.

    Zazzle, please do the decent thing and remove the "Candy Waters Autism Artist" SCAM and stop helping the parents to exploit their severely Autistic child. As many complaints that you get I'm surprised you are still in business and knowingly helping to exploit this severely Autistic child isn't helping anything as word gets around about your shady dealings because you love money more then doing the right thing. Start changing for the good so people will start respecting you again and try to do a better job of communicating.

    So I must ask? After you watch this video, ask yourself if this severely Autistic child did the intricate designs at the end of video and on your website.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwwsNM1YBc0

    I don't think you even have a conscience-good or bad.

    To everyone else who don't approve of Zazzle's behavior; please report any Adchoice ads that advertise the "Candy Waters Autism Artist" fraudulent art as a SCAM. And continue to report until you no longer see any designs being advertised. You will also see ads by "Café Press"(one design from a seller overseas), "Amazon" and "Print-All-Over-Me" too. Thank you.
