Waiting for him was Jim Bohnert, Director of Security for Drury Hotels Company, LLC.
Mark told ASN that Mr. Bohnert advised him that his Facebook posts almost cost the company a $150,000 contract with the Department of Homeland Security and because of this he was being terminated. Jim Bohnert - formerly of the Secret Service and the St. Louis Police Department - had more to say on the matter. He called the former military member a "terrorist" and told him he had "dishonorably served his country" by posting pictures of vehicles parked in a garage where any guest or employee of the hotel could have seen them. In fact, any member of the public could have seen them simply by entering the garage, which is not secured. Argus Streaming News writers were able to see "over 100? DHS vehicles in the garage while driving through it on their way to speak to the hotel's manager. Bohnert also threatened Paffrath with arrest if the photos were reposted (presumably by someone with more power than Director of Security for Drury Hotels, Bohnert's current position). Mark stated that Mr. Bohnert ended the conversation with "if you repost the photos and video you will have the federal government knocking on your door and you will be incarcerated".

Jim Bohnert, a representative with the United States Secret Service, said this is definitely a new twist on a very old scam.
Bohnert explained it is the type of case they would investigate but it is often hard to make arrests because African nations don't always cooperate. "If somebody is sending you a check worth more than what is contractually agreed upon, I would be skeptical about sending anything back," Bohnert said. On Tuesday, Duchek sent one last email to Ezekiel saying he's decided to keep the $3,000 balance. In the meantime, He's learned a valuable lesson. "Most people will accept a cashier's check almost as if it's solid gold, cashiers check can be fraudulent as well," he said.
"It's just coincidence," said Jim Bohnert, assistant special agent in charge of the Secret Service office here.
"There were no threats whatsoever" against Obama. The agency wanted the man â€" Patrick Greer, 29, of Fort Worth â€" in a criminal investigation dealing with drugs and identity theft, Bohnert said. Bohnert said agents in Dallas had been working with Greer's wife to try to find him and knew that he had some mental issues.

"There were no threats whatsoever" against President Obama. The Secret Service wanted the man -- Patrick Greer, 29, of Fort Worth, Texas -- for a criminal investigation dealing with drugs and identity theft, Bohnert said. And because Obama is visiting St. Charles today, Bohnert said he figured people might wonder about Greer's connection and the Secret Service's interest. "There was never, ever any protection threat" to the president, Bohnert added. In addition to protecting the president, the Secret Service investigates financial crimes, including counterfeiting and credit card fraud. Greer's warrants in Texas included one for engaging in organized crime. Bohnert said agents in Dallas had been working with Greer's wife to try to find him and knew that he had some mental issues.
