It seems, as of late, that we are in the business of exposing people. Rather it’s a group of advicates pretending to be that-advocates, a group who placed families in danger by allowing a convicted pedophile into their group, or this lady…we seem to be busy.
Recently, we had been contacted by Melissa MacDonald, a member of team “Revitup.” She contacted us about a potential scammer, Lisa Michaele Walker-Mcmillan (Michaele Mcmillan.) Mcmillan operates several groups within Facebook. Among them, “Wounded Hero Project.” The group, according to the image below, is essentially claiming to be a counciling center. Now, as we all know, to make such a claim, one must be licensed in the field.
Although we had no reason to doubt Melissa’s claim, we make a habit of going in with a skeptical eye. With this, we contacted the page. We simply asked for verification of the clege they attended as well as a photo of their certification. If provided, this article would had given them some problicity. Well, clearly that is not how things went.
After waiting for about an hour, Mcmillan did respond. The response was simply, “hello Melissa.” I explained who I was, what I was doing, and even offered to call. Although it showed that the messages were read, no reply was ever given. With that, we felt that we had enough information to proceed with an article.
We conducted a search, one in Arkansas as well as Kansas, to verify rather or not her organization was legit. Because, in one image, we saw LLC on the name, we began there. To not much of a suprise, no such LLC existed in either state. We than conducted a 501c3 and 501c4 search. Both had the same results: No such organization existed.
We went to the group’s Facebook page and decided to pull the provided phone number. If this was a legitimate counciling service than the number should be in its name. What we found was the phone number was operating on the AT&T network and it was Mcmillan’s personal cell.
This was more than enough for us to write this article. What we have here is a woman who is illegally providing a counciling service to veterans. She has no legit business, no certification in the field to which she provides service for, and no legit phone number to her artificial business.
While her intent might be good, we say this with much hesitation, the facts don’t lie:
1. She is not trained to handle PTSD, depression, anxiety, and the many other issues that vets face.
2. She is operating an illegal counciling center, under the radar of the State medical board.
3. When questioned, she simply avoids the subject. People do this when they know they have been busted.
4. What she is doing is not helpful, cute, or funny. She is targeting a group of people who, in many cases, are vulnerable. These people are often fighting suicidal depression and thoughts. To play doctor, or councilor, is not something we should take lightly.
We had conducted this research with an open mind. Because Mcmillan refused to answer one simple question, it has lead us to believe that she is a complete fraud as well as a threat to those who feel vulnerable. Below, we will show the entire conversation. We are doing this for accountability. If we provide it, she cannot say that we omitted her response from this article.
