    Re: Phillip Sheppard - Redemption Island

    I think we can add BS artist to his resume:

    Get to know Phillip Sheppard from "Survivor: Redemption Island" - Oklahoma City TV | Examiner.com

    He now works as a technology executive, but he described his job as being the CEO of a software company.

    more info:

    Phillip's company

    Enterprise Software Sales Group

    Again he hypes that he was a former Federal agent and a US Army veteran.

    Defense Security Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Defense Security Service (DSS) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Within areas of DoD responsibility, DSS is tasked with facilitating personnel security investigations, supervising industrial security, and performing security education and awareness training. It is not a Federal law enforcement organization; it does not have police powers. Originally known as the Defense Investigative Service (DIS), DIS was established in 1972.[1] DSS changed from DIS in 1999.

    For fiscal year 2008, DSS was authorized 621 civilian employees. Of those, about 350 are Industrial Security Representatives, who will be responsible for about 12,000 industry facilities under DSS jurisdiction.[2] DSS Industrial Security Representatives and Information System Security Professionals are credentialed Special Agents.

    In November 2004, investigators from DSS were transferred to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). This move consolidated the vast majority of Federal government personnel background investigations with OPM. DSS still processes industrial clearance requests for the DoD,[3] and acts as the liaison to the OPM for the DoD.[1]

    The Defense Security Service is not to be confused with the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) of the State Department. The special agents of the Diplomatic Security Service are sworn federal law enforcement agents.
    OK...Phillip was a Federal agent he did background investigations.

    His throat is so dry, he's even spelling her name wrong!

    Thanks, Bearcata...I did not see how he could be the kind of agent he wanted everyone to think he was!

    It looks like he was some sort of Federal employee. And, even if he wasn't, he wouldn't be the first to lie about his job or credentials......Marty the Chess Champion, anyone?????

    I'm never all that impressed with a website that contains spelling and punctuation errors. It also appears that most of their "client testimonials" were written by the same person, with a love of grandiose phrasing and multi-syllable adjectives. Wonder who that could be.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Survivor doesn't vet the occupations stated by the contestants, right? I mean, Phillip could just as easily have said he's the King of a small island nation

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    There are several positions that you can legitimately use the Term "Agent" or "Special Agent"...I do think Philip is stretching the truth quite a bit.

    As in Coach's Amazon trip where he barely escaped with his life after being chased by natives? You mean they don't check that stuff?

    Re: Phillip Sheppard - Redemption Island

    As soon as I heard Phillip telling everyone that he was a former Federal Agent, blessed with super-powers, I knew we had someone, insecure, who needed to brag about who and what he was. A real ex-fed would most likely keep that quiet, preferring to watch and learn and not need to be validated by anyone else.
    He's a big ol' joke to everyone but himself. Reminds me of Coach and his preposterous stories of past glory.
    As soon as someone starts talking about how great they are, you can be pretty sure they aren't.
