                 he was married."
                "I had to declare bankruptcy after being left $65,000 in debt.

                             says ‘He doesn't work here,’ and I said, 'He doesn't?' She says 'No, I
                             fired him in December." And I say, 'That's interesting,' and she says,
                            'But he's still in the area, him and his wife have a gift shop in downtown
                             Estes Park,' and I said, 'His what?' She says, 'His wife.' I said, 'I'm his
                              wife.' She says, 'Well he's got two then, doesn't he.

Chinn is hired at the White Pine Ski Resort to manage the restaurant and
hospitality staff. 
Wyoming - A personal ad on appears containing similar language
 to Wayne Yee Chinn’s Oregon postings. The ad is signed "W."
"I was among them, though not included in any of the reports.
                  I have, for years, been embarrassed over my naivete 
                  Looking back now, I think "How could I have fallen for that!?" 
                  And my only answers are "he's good" and I was young and naive and
                  wanted to believe in a "good guy".

                 How disgustingly wrong I was. And it cost me not only money, but freedoms.

                 I hope this man rots in hell and if anyone knows how to get a hold of him,
                 let me know.

                 It may not mean much, but I want to sue the pants off him and make him
                 pay for what he did not only to me, but others as well. (I know it's a pointless  
                 effort, but it makes me even more mad as I further learn the discovery of his

                 No woman (or person) deserves to run into a creature like this."

-He's trying to hide out in Wasilla, AK as you said at the Last Frontier Brewery. But there are some people looking for him, the money he owes them, etc. His phone numbers are 907-903-8550 or 907-382-1268. His "current" wife Debbie is with him who works at K&L Distributing in Anchorage, Alaska & is either blind or abused. Half the city knows about him already, hope he doesn't rip off all the customers credit cards :(

Mr. Chinn has made mistakes in his younger years, and has dealt with them. As a forward thinking, civilized society we are taught to allow people to learn from their mistakes. This man had been nothing but professional and up front about his past and has moved on with his life. He has already been judged, sentenced and paid his debt to society and merely wishes to be allowed to be a productive person in society. Please note that none of his past mistakes are of any violent nature such as child moleststion, murder, rape of any of the other incidious crimes that are clearly unacceptable. If the courts in the respective states have found him having paid his debts to society and allowed him be be free of any supervision or maintenance, then who are we to be another level of JUDGE, JUROR AND EXECUTIONER. Let the man be!!

As a close friend to Randy Martin, I have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Chinn, and if you even gave this man a chance you will find that he is better than the news article. Despite the goals of an over zealous news reporter and a few spurned women, Mr. Chinn is great at what he does. He provides very high quality food and had created a very welcome venue in our little town of Wasilla. Randy has many times stated that he has nothing but good to say about Mr. Chinn. The Last Frontier Brewing Company opened when it did due to Mr. Chinn's assistance and persistant attitude. He desrves to be given another chance...And I for one will support him!!

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! Wayne Chinn is dishonest to the core! He is a con man, and it wouldn't surprise me in the least bit that he posted the March 2nd and 3rd postings himself. He continues to be judged by people like me who he has swindled in one way or another, sentenced for crimes prior than 2004 to my knowledge, but there are many, MANY More crimes he has committed that he will not own up to. Wayne Yee Chinn is a liar and a con man. Who owes money to people in many states. Don't you wonder why he has moved so many times and had so many jobs?

It seems pointless to post comments if you are not involved in thia. As a friend of Mr. Chinn, having worked for him, despite what some of you say, he is not the man of his past. Meg Lum, you have no right to post the comments you do, nor have you the right to spread your own motivated rumors. You too have a past and I'm confident you don't want it spread around. ALL of us have skeletons! Some are more serious than others, but everyone has made mistakes. If Mr. Chinn was trying to run away from matters, why hasn't he changed his name? Why has he remained in one location for over 2 years? None of you have an answer for that do you? I wouldn't be surprised that if he identifies who all of you are aside from Meg Lum, that Mr. Martin can file a harassment suit against you for inhibiting his ability to operate his business succesfully. Your comments are damaging to him as well. So please be aware that your over zealous holier than thou comments could put you in line for a lawsuit.

guest, freedom of speech works both ways, both for you, and for the posters who have
posted their "opinions," some of which are based upon first hand knowledge. Any suit
would have to "PROVE" that their comments inhibited said person's ability to operate
a business. That he remains in business negates anything anyone online says about
an employee, an employee that has a criminal past.

Fact, he does not stay in one area for too long. Since he met his current wife, they have lived in: McCall, ID, Medford, OR, Reedsport, OR, Springfield, OR, Parkdale, WY, another town in WY, Moose Jaw, AK, another Alaskan town, I forget the name, Anchorge, AK, and now Wasilla, AK. That is at least TEN places he has lived in the last for years. I was wrong, he does stay in one spot for two years or longer, if you believe him, you are just as blind as his moral compass of a wife!

BTW, if he is such a good business man why has he had so many jobs in a short amount of time? Oh, I forgot because he is, wait as I vomit in my mouth a little, an honest and decent man. And Wayne, you give yourself up every time you post... Only you would threaten a harassment suit against someone, been there done that where you are concerned. I wonder if those warrants from Washington have caught up with you. Thank you to the person who posted his numbers, time to make another anonymous phone call...

In answer to why hasn't Wayne left...well it's not for lack of trying. He's trolled on several dating sites looking for his next victim. His profile is always the same.."Looking for a Real Woman" who wants a solid, committed and monogamous relationship...blah, blah, blah. So Wayne...what’s wrong with #7.. your current wife? If you want to leave so bad, why not just divorce her? Might save you another bigamy charge.

So what happened Wayne? Thought you were God's gift to The Last Frontier Brewing Co. Could it be they discovered you are only pretending to be a real chef or that you are a pathological liar. Bet you showed them...walking out like that...not!

In response to the posting on March 2nd- "Please note that none of his past mistakes are of any violent nature such as child molestation, murder, rape of any of the other insidious crimes that are clearly unacceptable." What part of CONVICTED BIGAMIST, ARSONIST, THIEF isn't violent? Isn't arson the destruction of property by fire? And fire isn't violent. Also in response to "This man had been nothing but professional and up front about his past and has moved on with his life." What part of his past has he been up front about? I noticed the word honest wasn't included in that sentence. Was he up front about his two older children being alive and well in Washington? Nope, he tells people they died in a car crash years ago. Has he been up front about his career in the Navy? Nope, he tells people he was still serving up to 2009, when he was discharged in the 70's. Was he up front to his "wives" about the other "wives?" Nope, he married two women at the same time, more than once. He was just convicted once. Was he up front with his current wife about his past when he married her? Nope, she knew nothing of his past that he had moved on from. Is he up front with the women he meets on the internet about dating? Nope, he tells them he is single, he is married. Is he up front on his resume about his past jobs? Nope, he fraudulently lists a degree he never obtained, and positions he never held, or was fired from. Wayne Yee Chinn is nothing but a con artist who gets off on the attention brought on by others. It brought me great satisfaction to see that others are not as easily fooled by this plague to society.

I am the" Michelle" in the articles written about Wayne's past.  If anyone has been hurt financally or emotionally by Wayne, it is me. If anyone has the right to carry a huge grudge, it is me..But here is the thing.  I have forgiven him for his past choices and so should you all.  Forgive, be aware, but move on.  If I can, so can you.

What right does anyone have to continue to stalk this couple, calling their bosses, e-mailing their employers as well as writing letters to their employers...etc.

They need to be given the right to move on and be given the opportunity to be useful members of society.  That is pretty difficult to do when they are continually harrassed by people that won't leave them alone.

Let this go.  Leave them alone.  Everyone should have the right to the pursuit of happiness. No one is protecting his wife....they are only hurting her.  She is not being held captive.  She loves her husband and will support him, even knowing his mistakes and weaknesses. The constant harrassment only serves to make them closer.  It is not driving them apart as you may have planned.  Enough already

The Bible makes it pretty clear about who should and shouldn't be getting even...and it's not us.

The funny thing one is stalking them, no one is calling their work, no one is writing their bosses. So where do you think all of this is coming from? If you guessed Wayne, then you would be right. Wayne can't hold a job down because he LIES on his applications. It's easier for him to say "someone called and got me fired" than for him to be honest. When you think about it, no employer is going to fire someone over a stalker's phone call.
