View Full Version : Thomas Joseph Heben - Liar, fraud and poser

06-24-2014, 10:30
Meet THOMAS JOSEPH HEBEN, our newest inductee into the SF Poser Patrol “Hall of Shame” Facebook page.

Thomas has claimed for years to be a graduate of the Special Forces qualification course and a former member of 3rd Special Forces Group. He also claimed to have served in Afghanistan with SF and left the service as a Staff Sergeant (SSG/E6). He lied to his family, friends and employer(s).The fact is, he never completed the selection process to even attempt Special Forces training and was "discharged" from the Army as a Specialist 4 (E-4).
He did attempt Special Forces Assessment and Selection only to be dropped the first time for unknown reasons and on second attempt he "quit".

Then Thomas Joesph Heben met his biggest obstacle and failed again. He couldn't surpass the scrutiny of tried and true Special Forces soldiers. A brotherhood like no other, and one that he'll never again be able to falsely claim he is part of. A Special Forces soldier he is not, a liar and fraud sums him up nicely.

EDIT: The attached apology was submitted only after he was backed into a corner and I believe to take any heat off his brother. While it seems sincere, he's only really sorry because he got caught. It should be also known that he was given an outline of what the apology had to include.

Thomas Heben - Liar, fraud and poser

It's all fun and games until we catch you. Well done brothers! This bottom feeding scumbag now has his whole life to reflect on his lies and fraud.

In the FOIA disclosure it says that he was discharged after being AWOL. In most cases that would be at a minimum a General Discharge. It is not known whether that is in fact the case. Discharges are not revealed in FOIA requests unless it involved a Courts-Martial.

What a bunch of FLUFF and BS....He was notified over 5 weeks about his brother Thomas Joseph Heben, Liar and Fraud and took no action until he realized everyone involved was serious and presented with irrefutable documents. If that's immediately taking action, I'd hate to see him take his time.

Below is a statement SOFREP received from Chris Heben this afternoon.

I was first notified of this very serious issue with my brother Tom by a very good SF buddy as well as by two other SOF brothers. I was very shocked and very concerned when I was presented with the details of his actual Military record. It was a complete surprise to me. I immediately took the proper steps to mitigate and to correct the situation. I contacted my brother and counseled him and then acted as a conduit for communications between all the aforementioned parties. I do not condone my brothers actions, and I expressed my thoughts on this to him as well as to my SOF brothers. Additionally, I also told Tom that I love him am I proud of him for coming clean, and that I am also proud of him for his service in the U.S. Army.

-Chris Heben, former Navy SEAL

I want to thank all who played a role in bringing this to light and for helping with this precarious situation. I am certain that we can all recover from this and effectively move forward.

-Chris Heben

I agree and as I have said elsewhere, there are some serious character issues with Chris. JMHO.

Time to move on and forget these two. "Whatsa behinda me - not important" [Raul Julia in "Gumball Rally"] :D

Thomas Heben , this bottom feeding scumbag didn't "come clean", he was exposed as a fraud and lair.... Coming clean doesn't happen AFTER you're caught.

Thomas Heben will always be known as a bottom feeding scumbag.

F**king bottom feeder.

On a more positive note he's probably got enough time in Special Forces Selection & Assessment (even though he failed twice) to be the host of Discovery Channel's "Dual Survival"..........

Thomas Heben WAPOS. I came clean..... Bull shit!!!!

His brother when told did what was needed. Bull shit again. Seams to run in the family. He kept quiet until it was coming out in public.

He's been exposed as a fraud and a liar. Soon every Special Operations Soldier, Sailor, Marine and Airman will know of this bottom feeders lies.

I'm sure that CNN will look upon him as a "victim" and applaud him for for telling his "story".

Five bucks says he cries during the interview.

Thomas Heben is nothing more than a bottom feeding scumbag and will be forever.

Thomas Heben - Green Beret Special Forces Liar, fraud and poser

This thread is about the bottom feeding liar Thomas Heben, not his former girlfriend, not his family and definitely not about his SEAL brother that served with honor.

Let's leave them out of this forum, they do not, for any reason, need to endure our wrath.

Thomas Heben on the other hand is now learning what happens to a Special Forces Green Beret fraud, as his lies and deceit are going viral. Soon the world will know of this bottom feeders lies.

Looks like Big brother found himself in a little hot water

Ex-Navy SEAL Chris Heben lied about being shot
BATH -- The Bath Police Department filed two misdemeanor charges at in Akron Municipal Court Wednesday against Christopher Mark Heben.

Heben, a former Navy SEAL, reported being shot at the West Market Plaza at 3885 Medina Road here on March 28 about 5:40 p.m.

The charges include one count of falsification and one count of obstructing official business.

Heben, 44, of Medina, reported he was shot after a verbal altercation in the shopping plaza parking lot.

RELATED: Witnesses sought in shooting of former Navy SEAL

Heben said at the time of the alleged incident that the suspects fled the shooting north on North Cleveland-Massillon Road and turned southeast onto Ghent Road in a gray, low-profile sports car.

Police Chief Michael McNeely said officers combed through footage from six to 12 surveillance cameras at area businesses to see if Heben was where he said he was, and none of the cameras corroborated his story.

McNeely said it was the first time in his career he's seen someone charged with this kind of crime.

McNeely said Heben, who is the registered owner of one gun, allowed police access to that gun, and the bullet that shot him didn't match.

Police say they do not have any theories into how he was injured, but they are able to disprove his story and determined the shooting did not occur at the West Market Plaza.

During the course of the investigation, Heben communicated false information to the police.

The falsification charge is a first-degree misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 180 in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Obstructing official business is a second-degree misdemeanor.

Heben will be served by the Bath police with a summons to appear at court. The arraignment date is pending.


Seems the loss of his PA license isn't the only thing shady about him. Like Big brother, like little brother.
