Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps

Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 05:46 AM

So I just got back yesterday from AC and had a great time!
but....

Someone that me and my girlfriends were extremely creeped out about down there kept coming back up. Let me start off by saying I have done extensive travels in the MiddleEast, Asia, and South America. So weirdos are no big deal. People that are extremely mentally unstable do ring alarm bells though, so I thought I would post this warning.

While staying at our hotel/resort a local man with a small bmx dirt bike and dreads crossed the resort line to the sun chairs we were sitting in (a big no-no). Once he interrupted us, he began to tell us about this great free school he runs on AC for kids and how he is some DR of neurology, and how he wanted donations for his school. He became very condescending and passive aggressive with us in a way that really freaked us out. We did out best to be nice and shoo him on his way.

soooooo..... anyways....
Once back in the states it was time to do some research on his credentials and "degrees" ect... Here are a couple things that he is stating on his website and claiming to be, and no records can be found of any of this.

1. He was on oprah
--No record found
2. On his own website (http://freemusicschoolbelize.wordpress.com/for-students/) he claims to be "Juilliard-trained musician and Yale-and-Harvard-trained physician"
--No record found
3. In a article written in 2004 (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=28133) his 175 foot boat "the sea ranger" was attacked in portland harbor by "assassins" working for the KKK, and sunk. Thank got his $15000 dog was able to pull him to another boat?
--No records of this with the Portland police department....
4. He was a captain and doctor in the US air force, and he is also a "Professor of Child Psychiatry", and is "currently Director and Editor-in-chief of the worldwide Harvard Intelligencer" (http://freemusicschoolbelize.wordpress.com/about/)
--No record found.

Anyways you see where i am getting with this, like I said before I have got the runaround from cons all over the world, but this guy seemed real sketch. So people on the way down, heads up for that freakshow, and locals down there, WTF is the deal with that guy?

This guy does not sell carvings. He is usually on his bike with a dog. He wears wire rimmed glasses most of the time.

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 02:53 PM

Yep. Floyd!
Last month i saw him riding his bike with two Mormons. He was wearing a white shirt and tie carrying a book that looked like a Bible.
Hes a definite strange case. He often gets people sucked in and donate to one of his medical or music school causes.
I didn't get the Mormon angle.
He should try creating a subdivision in the mangroves and sell lots. Those guys are doing great!
Ya gota love living here. There are a few Elvis's and the bars are full of Jimmy Buffets.

I've met him a couple of times at the bakery back in the day. He claimed that he owned half of it and that half was some sort of music cafe. He seemed nice enough though. He told me about the Julliard and Harvard thing and I actually think he was riding around with a violin. He also went on to say that he was the last dean of the med school that was on the island but was kicked out due to "politics". Seemed harmless enough though quite a talker!

LOL! I know this guy! Floyd! And I also know his 'resume'. Funny stuff! Didn't realize he was hustling tourists for money though...

FLOYD is a mixed bag. He did manage to get some good people involved in putting together the first high school play/musical. The students were wonderful and it was a good thing for them although not nearly enough time was allowed for rehearsals. The down side was that he hogged the spotlight. There was a good turn out of grigos but very few others. I felt especially bad that it looked like the parents of the students didn't attend.

The day before the play he approached a group in a cafe and spent five minutes espousing his importance and never once bothered to find out anything about them.

All the things listed in the original post above were part of his spiel plus that he is a cousin of Michael Jackson. He then came over and asked me if I would video the performance so he could send it to the Jackson family. I choose not to do that.

I think he needs some serious help.

Definitely Floyd! I've actually had the displeasure of hearing him attempt to play his violin! I would have a hard time believing that he actually gets money from people other than individuals paying him to leave them alone!

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 04:36 PM

Can't remember...is his last name Jackson? Does Floyd still live on a boat?

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 05:15 PM

Scubalady, I had the same spiel from him a couple days ago. Sounds like the performance was great for the high school kids. He also told me that Micheal Jackson is his cousin and this play was a tribute to Micheal. I missed the play, but ran into him the other day. He stated that he is now working on scholarships for all the kids in the play to go to NY on a full scholarship! Hmm... Now I am wondering....

Does he actually have a doctorate? He's certainly no fool. Delusional perhaps.

Sadly it's not of him playing, but of him talking about playing. I'll post it if anyone wants me to, but it's not the same.

That's actually funnier Peter...

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 07:15 PM

Haha. Floyd is a funny guy. He was spouting off about the Harvard Intelligencer last time I spoke to (listened to) him. He also told me that his family is very well tied in with the Clintons but didn't want to hit them up with favors. Lol...funny guy. Sorry to hear if he is scamming tourists though...he sort of reminds me of a less crazy, far less talented version of Jamie Foxx in 'The Soloist'....hmmm

Read some of the stuff he's written in the papers (mostly about himself), he is definately NOT a PhD, or anything else for that matter.

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 08:00 PM

I had the pleasure of meeting Floyd last week. Within 15 minutes he told me his entire history up to and including the Fiddler On the Roof performance and the grant he has written to take this performance to New York City this summer. He claimed he rode out hurricane Dean on his boat and helped the local doctor with 22 dead after wading through chest deep water to help save people.
Pleasant guy, well spoken and never once ask for a donation, but the indication was always there. I'm sure he is getting a few dollars.

The last time I saw Floyd he was telling some tourists how he met JFK and that he always remained good friends with Jackie O. It gave me a chuckle. I hope he still doesn't have dogs, I always felt sorry for them.

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 09:37 PM

JZB funny you should say that he had that dog with him all the time i felt sorry the dog had to hear the crazy talk LOL. .The dog always looked tired..I wonder if the dog new his master was A little strange.?????
Posted By: JZB

Re: Crazy "Doctor" watch out peeps - 03/04/10 09:47 PM

I'm sure the dog (he used to have a couple) knew his master was one slice short of a loaf but was probably more concerned with the fact he wasn't getting fed (unless Floyd found something tasty in the trash for him).

Ambergris Caye is a colourful place!

I hate to ruin the crazy doctor parade but I have another good one. A local got in our jump plane and tried to start it and take off. He also jumped in as we taxied out for a jump. The local pharmacy must be out of meds this month!!!!! No harm was done. Fortunately...

"He also jumped in as we taxied out for a jump."

You should have taken him up with you and charged him the $5 for a jump W/O a chute !! smile

[sarcasm]yeah, that's definitely humor at its best...[/sarcasm]

I know you're joking, but that's pretty tasteless.

Either way, I'm not here to bash on Dr. Floyd, but before MJ's death, and when I met him last year, he told me that he was the cousin of the Wayans brothers. He also handed me a signup form for the music class that he was putting together, and he had a violin and a dog with him.

And those are facts.
