Rolda’s attempt to con Gatehunder fra Romania group out of $223,929.85 for land claiming Robert Smith is advising her how to run a natural shelter

Subscribers to this site will be more than aware of Dana Costin’s experience of conning hundreds of thousands of dollars out o people under the pretence the money will be used to buy land to benefit the strays of Romania.
Well here is undeniable proof that Dana has resurrected this con in the form of trying to persuade the good hearted people of the Norwegian group Gatehundre fra Romania to part with $223,929.85 of their hard earned money.
After listening to Dana’s spiel, quite rightly a group member suggested that she would need experience at running a natural shelter. To ease any concerns of this potential donor, Dana blatantly lied using the respected and trusted name of Robert Smith stating categorically that “Robert Smith you mean, he is helping me with advices before ROLDA be a registered charity. Of course I will learn everything for this while the funds are start to be raised”.  .
Unfortunately for Dana Costin, Mr Smith himself knows nothing of this. When he was contacted enquiring of this alleged callaboration between him and Dana, well…You can read for yourself what his reply was.For over a month now Dana Costin has been pleading with the Norwegians to set up a Norwegian charity for ROLDA.  Here she is seen as deliberately misleading people into believing something that is simply not true.

Please see below for a direct screen print capturing Dana Costin working her latest con on the Norweigans, Mr Smiths response to what she blatantly claimed and click here afterwards to be forwarded to the causes page where ROLDA is instrumenting this same con also on the public

Thanks for the info Robert.  The 500 dogs that you speak of are actually at the ArcelorMittal shelter that ROLDA only manages.  AM built that shelter and funds everything, although Dana has pretended she needed donations for those 500 dogs.  This is the kind of con stuff that she does Robert.
She is not interested in the welfare of the animals….she stole 60,000 British pounds from a man in the UK pretending she needed that money to purchase land.  It turns out she did purchase land, but it only cost $1400.
She does use the dogs as pawns to get money.  The reason she finally started purchasing dog food from you is because a number of us did an expose’ about her proving that she was not doing as she claimed.  The expose’, www.wheredidmydonationgo.org, came out in late August.  Since that time she has started doing things like ordering dog food for the dogs, instead of feeding them stale chocolate croissants.  Although she has known how to order food for her dogs from FPCC for a long time, as Chrissy told her long ago, she only did if after she was exposed.
Thanks for your information Robert.  Best to you as always!Sincerely,

Dear Nancy,
No she is not in contact with me and I know nothing about this. Antonia (to whom I am copying this) mentioned that we are supplying dogfood to Rolda and that so far they have paid us correctly for the dogfood. Stefan (Antonia’s husband) has seen Dana’s shelter with about 500 dogs which are in good condition.
However Dana did not bother to visit our open shelter when she came to Oradea a couple of years ago – she is always making excuses to avoid me, not that I have any wish to deal with her. So she has never even been to our open shelter.
I think you are right in fearing she is again conning people. No doubt she thinks she is doing this for the cause of animal welfare, but I dislike this fundraising obsession as much as you do – one fears the dogs are pawns in her money-raising campaigns.
Rgds Robert

Hi Robert,
Dana Costin is asking for over 1 million Norwegian kronen from unsuspecting people to build a “natural dogs shelter”.  she says she is in close contact with you and you are advising her.  I don’t believe her as she is claiming to purchase the land in another county away from Galati.  Are you working with her on this…advising her?  I think she is conning again.  Thank you.
Sincerely,
Nancy Janes

  2. Nancy Janes March 7th: "I just received an email from Robert asking me to have the information from him taken down from the site. He is not sure if Dana’s message to the Norwegians was meant to be in the past or present tense in reference to ROLDA charity registration (i.e. – was she speaking of 2006 or now when Dana is trying to get the Norwegians to register her as a charity in their country). Robert said he does not recall ever advising her about starting the ROLDA charity in 2006, but that he may have."

    Why is this information still her, and why don't you ask the members of Gatehunder from Romania, what we think about this? After all, we are the ones your are "worried" about!

  3. Nancy Janes, March 7th,
    "We have removed the content of this from this website as requested by Robert, but the above link will enable you to see what was actually posted by all three parties concerned."

    Please answer why this information you were asked to remove, is still here? And why have you not asked "us" the Norwegian people in this above mentioned Facebook group, what we think?

    Nancy Janes, you say you have removed the personal e-mail, but how do you define "remove", since you give a link where the information is still found. Are you going to tell me that you have no influence on the "blogspot"?
    I have learned since you deleted my comment earlier, so of course I print screen:)
