"Barbed Liar" Skips Trial

Words Cam McRae
Date Oct 18, 2017

Stelios Psaroudakis had a preliminary court date to schedule his trial but when that date arrived he failed to appear. A warrant has been issued for Mr. Psaroudakis and if apprehended will be held until a bail hearing.

The accused is standing trial for fraud and mischief surrounding a report he made to RCMP regarding an incident he claimed occurred on July 5th, 2017. Mr. Psaroudakis claimed he was riding his mountain bike on the Bragg Creek Trails near Calgary when he struck barbed wire strung across the trail at neck height. After a short hospital stay he set up a GoFundMe entitled "Bike Stolen After Almost Dying."

A source at Foothills Hospital in Calgary related through a source that Mr. Psaroudakis' injuries were not severe. He claimed to be unable to work after the incident. 

Claiming to have left his bike at the scene when he went to seek medical attention, Stelios reported that his bike was gone the next day. He posted an image of a bike that appeared to be taken from the Pinkbike buy and sell, claiming a value of $8000. The GoFundMe reached $850 before it was frozen. 

Stelios' Bike

This is the bike Stelios claimed was stolen from him. He valued it at $8000 for his GoFundMe campaign. 

Holes in his story appeared almost immediately; other riders on the trail that day failed to see any evidence of sabotage, the parking lot he claimed to have used was closed that day, and the bike he claims was stolen was clearly worth much less than $8000. 

Stelios

An excerpt of my late night conversation with Stelios Psaroudakis on Facebook. 

I contacted Mr. Psaroudakis on Facebook Messenger and asked him some questions that raised further alarm. Chief among them he claimed to have been riding at "around 40 50 kilometres" when he contacted the wire. You can see my conversation with him here. Eventually the public uproar, mainly from concerned mountain bikers, lead to a police investigation which concluded that the injuries were caused by Mr. Psaroudakis riding his friend's ATV into a fence on private property. 

Earlier Stelios claimed on Facebook that the charges had been dropped. This was not the case. 

If you have information about the whereabouts of Stelios Psaroudakis please contact local police or RCMP.

Posted on our FB page. It turns out Stelios may have skipped more than just his trial date. Hopefully his wife and child are taken care of.

Are you kidding? He is dominating the Autobahn as we speak.

Think this guy is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Nothing like skipping the country and then saying where you are. This will follow him everywhere, enjoy dipshit.

Something tells me he's not in Germany. Given his deception in the case, Germany and Canada's extradition treaty, and the nice weather by the sea in NORTHERN Germany. With his disgusting comment about the RCMP gal and his Greek heritage, I would assume he is in the Mediterranean somewhere. Just speculating.

Essentially banning himself from Canada really isn't that a bad outcome.  Don't need his kind around here.

He's running from fraud under $5K and public mischief charges? 

Regardless of where he is, most of the EU, North, Central and South America, and parts of Asia have extradition treaties with Canada.

"In 2007, the RCMP-Interpol website listed the following countries as having extradition treaties with Canada: Albania, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Israel, Italy, Korea, Latvia, Liberia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, United States and Uruguay."

Not the brightest bulb.

Indeed. No mention of his family coming along either. He seemed so worried about them earlier.

I would like to get a look at this guy's high-school report cards.  Probably quite humorous.
