Eric Who’s on YouTube and Telling the Truth?

nomadic 1

Eric Jacobs markets himself as the “Nomadic Fanatic” and has a YouTube channel with more than 75,000 subscribers. He met reporters Jillian Wiggers and Tana Wilson while stopped in Montana for another episode about his travels in an RV with Jax, his hefty cat. He welcomed the reporters asking questions about his show and his life on the road. But it turns out that he’s more complicated than he comes across. There are “haters” out there, some accusing Jacobs of misusing crowd-sourced funds, among other transgressions. He does have a criminal record and there were enough questions that Wiggers and Wilson called him back to try and get some answers. Like “the road,” this story’s got a lot of twists and turns. Hang on inside the RV!

    Well there is also the transmission scam he did towards the end of 2015, Eric Jacobs posted on Facebook and Youtube he broke down and the transmission went out. He was whining about this and sold stickers for this, he said he might be stuck at the transmission shop for a month. Well about 300 miles away from the transmission shop a loyal viewer spotted him in a Walmart parking lot and her husband video it, she didn’t think nothing about him there till a couple days later when she was watching his videos and reading his FB page and he was still saying he was at the transmission shop, so Ms Mouse Brite busted him and posted her video and Eric Jacobs threatened her with a lawsuit, he then bought a newer RV a month later costing around $20k where did he get this money from ? The transmission scam, if you check out Nomadic Fanatic Stickers YouTube channel Ms Mouse Brite video is on there and Stickers videos showing how much of a con artist Eric Jacobs really is.

    No secret clan….
    He is exactly what people say he is.
    Youtube is full of videos showing his shenanigans.
    The interwebz are chock full of his criminal records.
    In so far as his indiegogo interludes- it is all true. He even scammed people into donating the funds to purchase his newest rv.
    Contact me, I’d love to share details with you.

    A few of us have been ‘following’ this guy for a couple of years now. We started out fans and found too many inconsistencies to ignore. There is plenty of evidence out there confirming his dishonesty and criminal past, including protective orders for domestic violence. In the interview he says there was one but there were actually more than one. He is a compulsive liar. He is also a practiced conman.

    Excellent article and interview . This is the first time Jacobs had faced any sort of scrutiny from journalists and he sounds panicky. There is much more to this story though and all the evidence points to Jacobs being a truly ruthless conman disguised as a bumbling cat lover . It would certainly be worth your while checking out the “transmission scam” videos on you tube , which show in detail how he defrauded his own fans out of so much money, he was able to buy a new RV . The amazing thing is that its all caught on camera !!

    LADIES, THERE IS NOTHING “ALLEDGED” IN WHAT WE’VE STATED. IF YOU HAD CHECKED FURTHER, YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT HE HAD 2 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES AGAINST HIM. I WAS ONE OF HIS ORGINAL FOLLOWERS WHEN HE WAS A STUDENT AT EVERGREEN COLLEGE. SEVERAL STUDENTS THERE STATED MANY THINGS ABOUT HIM & I VIGOROUSLY DEFENENDED HIM. SADLY, I FOUND OUT LATER THAT THEY WERE CORRECT. HE LIES, CONSTANTLY. HE CREATED HIS TROLLS/HATERS BY HIS OWN ACTIONS. AT THE COLLEGE, THE STUDENTS STATED HE DAMAGED THIER PROPERTY, CALLED THE POLICE ON THEM, SAYING THEY WERE SELLING DRUGS & SEXUALLY HARASSED A FEMALE STUDENT THERE. THE COLLEGE’S FACEBOOK PAGE WAS FULL OF STUDENTS ACCOUNTS OF HIM. LATER, HE STATED THAT HE OWED MONEY TO THE COLLEGE BECAUSE HE USED HIS PELL GRANT TO BUY A RV(TILLY). AND, HE MIGHT HAVE TO USE THE DOCUMENTARY FUNDS TO PAY IT BACK. HE ALSO STATED THAT HE HAD APPLIED FOR THE MASTER’S PROGRAM. BOTH STATEMENTS WERE CONFIRMED TO BE A LIE BY THE COLLEGE, ITSELF. IN FACT, HE USED PART OF THE DOCUMENTARY FUNDING TO PAY FOR THOSE CHILDISH TATS ON THIS CALVES OF BEEVIS/BUTTHEAD($1000-$1500). HE TOTALLY SHUT DOWN HIS CHANNEL & DIDN’T RETURN UNTIL HE WAS BROKE. HE STATED THAT HIS DOCUMENTARY WOULD BE FINISHED IN SEPTEMBER OF THAT YEAR. HE WANTED TO EXPANDED IT TO AN HOUR SO IT COULD BE SHOWN AT SUNDANCE & VENUES LIKE THAT. WHEN HE HAS BEEN CAUGHT BREAKING THE LAW, HE DELETES THOSE VIDS. HE DELETES MOST OF HIS NEGATIVE COMMENTS. HE IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR INTERBET FRAUD & HAS BEEN REPORTED TO THE IRS(DONATIONS ARE INCOME). HIS SCAMS: SOLAR PANEL, DOCUMENTARY, 3 TRANSMISSION SCAMS(THE LAST WAS EXPOSED BY MS MOUSE BRITA), HOVERBOARD SCAM(QUICKLY EXPOSED BY NOMAD PATROIT). DIG DEEPER, LADIES. THIS MAN DID SPEND 7 YEARS IN PRISON FOR VARIOUS FELONIES. APPARENTLY, THE INMATES DIDN’T LIKE HIM AS HE WAS IN PROTECTIVE SECTION OF THE PRISON. HIS LIES GO ON & ON. WHAT’S FUNNY IS HE CONSTANTLY GETS CAUGHT IN HIS LIES, THEN, HE JUST LIES SOME MORE. MOSY OF HIS SUBS HE HAS BOUGHT. HE MAY HAVE 20,000 REAL SUBS. HIS VIEWS DON’T MATCH UP WITH THE SUB NUMBERS. HE CREATES FALSE PERSONAS SO HE CAN ATTACK THOSE WHO EXPOSE HIM. VAGINA SPARKLES IS ONE OF HIS MORE VULGAR ONES. HIS FALSE PERSONAS ARE EASY TO SPOT AS HE ALWAYS SAYS THE SAME THING(NICE YOUNG MAN JUST WANTING TO SEE THE COUNTRY, YADA, YADA, YADA). I TURNED AGAINST 2 YEARS AGO WHEN HE DID THE SLINGING SNOT ROUTINE IN FL. THAT’S WHEN I TOYALLY SAW THROUGH HIM & STATED SO, I UNSUBBED SHORTLY THEREAFTER. YOU SEE, ALL OF US “TROLLS” WERE ONCE HIS LOYAL SUBS. HOWEVER, WHEN HE RIPS OFF HIS OWN SUBS, THEY BECOME HIS ENEMIES. HE WENT FROM BEING A BURGULAR TO A CON ARTIST WITH ONE SCAM AFTER ANOTHER. HE DELIBERATELY STARTS THE DRAMA WHEN HIS VIEWS DROP(MORE VIEWS, MORE ADSENSE, NOT TO MENTION ALL THE SOB STORIES HE CREATES TO GET DONATIONS). YOU SIMPLY CANNOT BELIEVE ANYTHING HE SAYS.

    We call Eric, Tater. He is a total scam artist and has bilked many people out of money. Check out nomadicfanaticstickers on youtube. Also please check out his sticker sales and how he got the RV he is in. I’ll send link when I have a bit more time.

    Thank you both for exposing this fraud for what he is.

    P.S. I lived in Billing’s for several years and was a graduate from Billing’s Senior. I visit about 4 times a year.

    Typical Eric. Don’t forget about the transmission scam. He posted videos about his transmission breaking then asking for donations (buying stickers) only to find out that he posted the video days after the transmission was fixed and paid and was already on the road. What next all that money he got to “pay for the transmission” was used to buy a new RV. Can’t believe there are people stupid enough to give him money.

  9. Sandy Carty says:

    Can’t stand this conman and liar. Thank God YouTube channels don’t last forever. Yeah “haters” are his channel. His content is boring garbage.

  10. Sandy Carty says:

    Wow great job guys! His story (the story of a convicted felon using YouTube to earn money and run scams) is fascinating. 🙂

  11. Grant says:

    Great interview ladies! please dig deeper,you’ve only scratched the surface.including transmission fraud, non-delivery of bought stickers and more.

  12. NFStickers says:

    You need to delve into more of Eric’s scams, such as the transmission scam which he did last Christmas..conning people out of stickers and money! All he said he needed was a transmission but he buys a new RV, Bicycle, Drone and other toys… total scammer!!!!!!!!

  13. NF Shoe Store says:

    One of Eric’s BIGGEST scams as of lately is how he got the fancy RV he was in.

    He ran a huge scam over the xmas holiday claiming his transmission had broke down, but it was later revealed by his anti-fans that those videos were uploaded to youtube waay before they actually aired & thus were not as “urgent” & “current” as he led people to believe. Also some people did not receive their promised fundraiser gifts in time for xmas, or at all. When people asked about it, Eric turned the comments off.

    Watch the NF turn fifty stickers into a new RV for xmas 2015.

    Keep this in mind, most of his “haters” used to be fans of his until they saw him constantly lying, ebegging, scamming & so on.. We aren’t the bad guys. Please keep reporting on Eric & do a follow up.
