David Love Attempted Con

The following article was sent to us by a single mother who has been abused by David Love. We are deliberately leaving her name out so she will not be subjected to further abuse by David Love or any of his associates.


I am coming forward telling my bad experience with the con man known as David Edgar Forslund a.k.a. David Edgar Love. I am doing it because David misleads people into believing that he is some sort of activist, and I want to warn people, especially women. If with my story I can prevent just one person from being scammed or exploited by David Love, then I have done my job.

This blog tells stories of people who have experienced similar situations with David Forslund as I did. I can’t believe that I was mislead by such a criminal. I am still facing harassment and taunting from him online, but he won’t silence me nor will I succumb to his intimidation.

David Love claimed to be part of a documentary team. He asked me if I’d be a part of this documentary to share my experience and I agreed.

We became good friends and David would literally call me every single day of the week. Later on I discovered that he was secretly recording every phone conversation we ever had. Little did I know that he was trying to frame me for something that I didn’t do. For example, David would initiate conversations regarding drugs or drugs he had been using in the past. He would have me play the role of discussing drugs with him while he would pose as a drug counselor. David claimed that his dream was to speak about drug abuse and help people get off drugs. He is a former drug addict and a drug dealer. What he was in fact doing was trying to portray me as some sort of a drug dealer while secretly recording our phone conversations.

He begged me to fly out to Arizona so he could visit friends and take a vacation. David was telling people that I was his girlfriend, and I asked him to stop saying that because we were never romantically involved. I never promised David a romantic relationship as he is older than my father. I told David if he comes to Arizona it is with the full understanding that we are friends, and nothing more. He completely agreed and understood. Before he came to Arizona he was very insistent on knowing what sort of drugs are in Arizona. Specifically, what kind of drugs can I get. He wanted to know if I could get opiate pain pills. I told him I have a prescription because of pain issues that I have. Once he was in my house he stole all of my pain medication and was taking secret pictures of them. He was also taking secret photographs of my dead uncle’s empty Morphine bottles. He was sending these pictures to one of the other “filmmakers who were doing the documentary” because David wanted to make the documentary more exciting and interesting. He was trying to give the appearance that he’s out in Arizona investigating a drug cartel. David gave me $50 and told me he was having major anxiety issues. He said he has PTSD. I believed him. He had me drive to go pick up anxiety pills for him. I was used as a middle man to get these for David as he is secretly recording it. This was more of his plan to portray himself as some professional journalist working on a story. When in reality, he was coercing and framing me into these situations. An attorney told me that it is a felony to secretly record someone for the sole intent to blackmail, which is what David Love did to me. I am currently seeking legal counsel in regards to his illegal surveillance and exploitation of me. Not to mention various pictures that he has stolen from my cell phone. I’m hoping David Love will post some of his illegally obtained recordings of me so that he will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I truly feel his road of criminal acts is coming to a quick end.

As for the 911 call and the Jerome Arizona situation where David tried to get me arrested, he accidentally sent me an email that was supposed to go to his party in crime i.e. the “filmmaker”. In that email he’s telling his associate that my family and I are part of the Chavez Mexican Drug cartel. That I’ve been offering him massive quantities of drugs to import into Canada. David a ton of secret audio and video footage of me. At that point I realized that I am being set up and exploited for entertainment purposes by David Love. I confronted him about the email and he lied about sending it to me by mistake. I was very scared of him at that point and told him I wanted to take him to the airport. That’s when he snapped and pulled a full blown stage attempt that I’m threatening to kill him. Not once I ever threatened David. You can hear him yelling in the 911 call that I threatened to slice his throat etc. He is making it all up so I would falsely be arrested. He falsely kept using saying that him and I are in Scientology, but I am not a Scientologist, and David was never in Scientology. He wanted that on the record so he could to use it as “evidence” in the documentary or book that he is trying to publish. David was charged for disorderly conduct by the police and his attempt to frame or exploit me failed.

Half of my family is from Mexico and I found it disgusting that David would racially profile me and my whole family as members of a drug cartel. Specifically a non-existent The Chavez Drug Cartel. I have never offered David Love any drugs to import into Canada either. I refused to be romantically involved and sleep with him and that’s why he was mad with me – my rejection set him off. In the above mentioned 911 call you can hear David calling me his “pet” and that he “owns” me as if I am his slave. I will not repeat all the demeaning names he used against me and the verbal abuse I had to suffer while he falsely claimed to the police that I was the one threatening his life.

I am a single mother who lives alone, and I feel this is one of the reasons why he picked me as a target.

After David was charged by the police and fled back to Canada and continued to send me many threatening emails. He threatened to “send me to prison” if I didn’t agree to a gag order about what he did to me and to publish all the information he had gathered about me in a book and ruin my life. Not being satisfied with threatening me he proceeded to threaten my mother and my 17-year-old daughter for about two months. To this day, David posts pictures of himself when he was in Arizona making ominous threats that will soon publish a story. His empty threats are mean to intimidate me and scare me into silence.

When David was confronted on a Facebook group by several individuals what he had done to me his response was to block over 300 people hat were demanding an answer from him.

David lies and tells people that I seduced and drugged him. I never drugged or seduce him. He is a 63-year-old grown man who gets a kick out of targeting and take advantage of defenseless women. It’s pathetic that he has to resort such fabricated lies to cover up what he did, but lying is what he does best to succeed in his con.

Please learn from my experience and stay away from this sociopath.

Thank you



David Love Caught Abusing a Woman Again Part II

David Love intoxicated

David Love mug shot taken by the Jerome Police Department (David looks intoxicated)

We received the following documents showing that David Love was in fact arrested, fingerprinted and had his mug shot taken in Jerome, Arizona for his abuse of  [MS] who he had apparently lured into room 30 at the Grand Hotel. Love created such a disturbance that a citizen worried about the safety of [MS] called 911.

Upon arriving at the hotel, the responding police officer overhead Love yelling profanities at [MS], calling her a “fucking bitch”, a “fucking slut” and a “whore”.

Upon pulling Love out of the hotel room, the officer noted that he was intoxicated. In his usual style of trying to shift his guilt to others, Love lied to the police claiming that [MS] had threatened to kill him but when the officer questioned [MS], she said she was only trying to calm him down. Love also claimed that he was part of the “cult of Scientology” which is another blatant lie.

If the police had not arrived at the scene I am quite sure David would have beaten her up just like he did with his ex-wife Norma who he left with a permanent scar, and she wasn’t the first woman abused and beaten up by David.

Here is the evidence:

Jerome Police Department

Exploited Daughter

The following letter was sent to me and it is self-explanatory.

Amber Letter

August 14, 2012

Dear _____

My name is Amber and I am David Edgar Love’s daughter. I went through the Narconon Program at the facility in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec and was very successful. The Narconon Program saved my life.

I do not have a lot of memories growing up with my father, as my parents divorced when I was only 3 years old. My mother remarried her current husband who she, has been with for almost 30 years. Essentially because of the lifestyle my father continued to live with street drugs and crimes he committed to feed his drug habit, my mother wanted to keep me away from that lifestyle. My mother was very open and honest with me with regards to her life with my father and all the drug use and crimes that they committed. She was able to get clean and get us children back so she was not anxious to let me have contact with my father David.

However, the more she didn’t want me to have anything to do with David, the more I wanted to know who my father was. So when I was 11 years old my mother let my older sister and I go visit him for the summer. When we returned, my sister at age 14 decided she did not want to have anything to do with our father as she thought he was manipulative and controlling. She broke all ties with him from that point on and has had no contact or relationship with him since. Me on the other hand I went away with wanting to get to know him better, so the following summer when I was 12 I went to spend the summer with him. After 6 months I returned to live with my mom and her husband but I kept in contact with my father through letters that I would send and receive at a friends house.

My communication with my father has always been sporadic over the years mostly because of his lifestyle. My father would call me usually when he needed help with something. Like the time when I was 17 and just going into college, he called saying his second wife had had enough of him and he needed me to take him to this clinic in Toronto to help him with his Heroin addiction. David told me he was working as a Realtor on Vancouver Island at the time and he had told his co-workers he had Hepatitis C, so they held a fund raiser for him to raise funds for his treatment. When they found out it was actually to go to a clinic to be treated for a Heroin addiction he was fired. I flew him out to the clinic in Toronto and we use the money they had raised for the airfare, hotel and treatment.

When my father contacted me in 2008 saying he needed my help as he was living on the streets and had no where to turn. David was in trouble with the law and had been arrested in November 2008 for Possession of Stolen Property in excess of $5,000 as well as Possession of Stolen Property under $5000 and Break and Entry. He was hooked on Heroin as well as other drugs and said he had been in the hospital because he had overdosed. He was on a waiting list for a treatment program in Be but really needed my help. I told him everything about Narconon and how they had helped me and I said I would talk with the Management and see what I could do for him.

After talking to Management of the facility they agreed to help my father David by giving him a 50% discount off their regular rate. In order to help pay David’s treatment fees I took out a loan, which I am currently still paying back. As well Narconon allowed David to use his EI (unemployment) cheque he received every two weeks toward the balance owing. He was staying at a shelter and many of the nightly residents would exchange various different drugs with one another. Also my father was on Unemployment and every two weeks when he received his cheque he would spend it all on drugs.

The sooner I could get him out of that environment the better he would be, so I worked with a Social Worker in Vancouver to arrange to fly my father to Montreal. I then had someone pick him up and bring him to my home. My father went through the Withdrawal Stage of the Program and once complete he went through the other 8 stages successfully.

What I like about the Narconon program for myself was that although it was really hard it helped me take responsibility for my life and myself. I had been to another treatment program on Bowen Island, Be where they used the 12-step program and I found that that program did not help me. Narconon’s Program is personalized, each person completes each stage at his or her own pace, and no one rushes you through. You do not move to the next step until you are ready. I believed in the program so much so that I stayed on afterwards and became Narconon staff member. When my father needed help he turned to me and I turned to Narconon for their help to assist me in getting my father clean from drugs.

When my father graduated from the Narconon Program in April 2009 he gave an amazing speech singing praise of Narconon and how the Program helped him. My father David believed in the program so much so that he became a staff member at the Narconon Facility in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec.

When I heard about Narconon Trois-Rivieres, Quebec being shut down in April 2012 that was a turning point for me. It was then I knew I could no longer stand by idly as David attacks the very people who helped both of us, not to mention thousands of others.

What my father is famous for doing is taking a grain of sand of the truth and exaggerating it to suit his needs. He has been doing this all his life, and after having an addiction to street drugs for as long as David has had it makes one delusional and paranoid, there are lots of studies that support this. He may believe he is fighting this cause for the greater of mankind but in reality it is for what David Love can get out of it financially.

My father changed his name from David Edgar Forslund to David Edgar Love in 1995 or 1996. He said it was because both his parents had past away and he wanted to take on his birth father’s name. I think it was more to do with his past and wanting to escape all that went with it. My father has tried to lead a normal life, working various jobs, buying homes but unfortunately the drugs always won out. Now he has cleaned up to the best of my knowledge and is no longer on street drugs but one has to wonder with his blogs about suffering from Post Traumatic Stress what prescription drugs he may be using. I want to believe he is clean in everyway and more than anything for him to stop this addiction with Narconon and Scientology. However, I know he will not until he gets what he wants from it, which is money.

I know this letter will bring on a lot of anger from my father and he will say I was coerced to do it. However, I want you to know I write this of my own free will because I could not in good conscience stand by and watch my father destroy so many people’s lives without at least standing up and saying something.



David Love Caught Abusing a Woman Again

Someone with no name left the following excerpts from a Facebook discussion about David Love aka David Forslund.

Here is the reference to the Arizona case against David Love: David Love – Disorderly Conduct

Rusty Since Mary McConnell & ‘Loud Mouth’ Patty Moher are so busy being Duped AGAIN by a CON, here’s a little something authored by a ‘former’ associate of David Forslund aka David love. That knew him since 1967.

MS … My concern is DL [David Love] lying and scamming all of you. In fact, DL was so concerned about me never going public about what I know..he offered me a gag order. I told himto go fuck himself. Why do people offer gag orders anyways? That’s weird.

MS… What happened with me and DL [David Love] is personal. So I kept quiet about it. But what I witnessed with him and what he’s about is not good. He came to my house posing as a nice friendly critic. He exploited and took advantage of the fact I was born & raised in Scio. He fed off that. He secretly recorded every move I made in my home, car, bedroom, bathroom with his pen video. Although it is personal, I do not want him doing this to any other female out there. So ladies, if DL sends you a PM saying how pretty you are, or he wants to hear about your story..RUN FOR THE HILLS! The issue I have more of a concern with, is him pulling a fraud on all of you. After what I experienced with him, I knew something wasn’t right. So I started researching what he’s about, what has he actually done for Narconon etc. I spent a few months watching how he operates within this movement. You all have to remember, I spent 23 years of my life (from birth) in Scientology. I’m not a friggin retard with this. So, I observed DL like a little ant under a magnifying glass for months. I started to see his con. How he has thousands of docs. Yet he never posts them. He has a huge verdict for you all. Never posts that either. He’s gonna release dox soon. Never releases them. He’s almost done with His Human Rights Case. Doesn’t exist. The verdict is in on that case. Oops he’s barely filing dox and the case is beginning all over again. I can go on and on..but I’m getting tired. He’s actually fascinating to watch. I admire his ability to swindle and fool hundreds of people. He’s very charismatic too. Sit back and watch him sometime. It sure beats watching The Kardashians.

MS One final thought on this. I want you all to know I do not like doing this. I don’t like being the center of attention. Especially for drama issues like this. But I can not, in my inner conscience remain quiet about this anymore. If I stayed quiet about this, DL [David Love] being exposed as a fraud was bound to happen eventually. Does it make the effect any less or greater if you all find out now by me? Or later by someone else who may not be as restrained as I was in this situation? This man put me through psychological hell for months. Threatening me and my family. Secretly recording me. Posting sick and twisted things on his FB wall with Arizona license plates geared towards me. I have many screen shots saved of this abuse he was directing towards me, as he is disguising it as Narconon activism for you all. Go to his Twitter page. You see that black hat he is wearing? I bought him that hat as a souvenir while he was here. I took that picture of him. He posted that pic on his Twitter account the day he left my house. He hasn’t taken it down since. As a form to taunt me and remind me to keep my mouth shut. After the abuse I experienced with him in person, all he had to do was say 2 words to me. “I’m Sorry.” He never apologized, and continued to blackmail and intimidate me for months. Even emailing me acting like members of Anonymous threatening me and my family. I am sorry. But DL is not a critic. He is a predatory criminal who is fooling all of you. Goodnight.

MS DL [David Love] has me blocked. It would be interesting to see what he has to say about all of this. He has told many people in the UK and Ireland that he came out here and I live in a multi million dollar estate. He says my parents are rich. Funny thing is, I live in a 2 bedroom apartment. I work my ass off to make $38,000 a year. My parents live off disability income. Last I saw DL on this board, I asked him why he is lying that I’m rich. He blocked me instantly. I think DL owes those good people an apology for making up outlandish lies to them. The fact that he would lie like that says something right there. Lying that I live in a multi-million dollar estate is not just a little lie. That is a bold faced, fairy tale, sociopath lie. And if he’s gonna lie about that…he’s gonna lie about more serious issues.

MS I do want to prepare you all. DL [David Love] has already told me that he will say that I’m a drug dealing whore in the “Chavez Mexican Drug Cartel” if I say anything about this.
