Welcome to the StopKaz.com web site.
On this, the Home page of the site, I will try to explain a bit about what led me to create the site. Feel free to skip this page and dive into the rest of the site, where the real "meat" is.
How This Site Came to Be
Back in June of 2004, I was visiting my mother at her house, when she started talking about "Dr. Kaz," a woman who had recently spoken at her church.
My mother was obviously quite impressed with this woman, but the more she told me about "Kaz's" story, the less believable I found it.
It was quite a story, full of this woman's supposed connections to celebrity, wealth, a heroic struggle and escape from the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, miraculous recovery from injury and disease, all leading to a current humble life of poverty, and spreading a Christian message.
Even before I heard some of the wilder parts of the story, I found it extremely hard to believe. But amazingly (to me), my mother - and evidently her minister and much of her church's congregation - believed this woman!
Her story was so newsworthy, I felt that if it were true, I would definitely have heard about it on the radio, seen it on the TV news, or read about it on the web somewhere. Wouldn't I?
Researching "Kaz" on the web, I found frustratingly little out there about her. Finding this to be a huge "red flag," I continued digging at her claims, and cataloguing the holes and inconsistencies in her story.
This led me to the conclusion that little (if any) of "Kaz's" story was true. And if I was correct in that conclusion , then she was making money off of the pain, suffering and death of those people who were in the World Trade Center towers on September 11th, 2001.
When I shared my research with my mother, and subsequently with members of her church, one thing struck me: a few of these people, while accepting "Kaz's" story, had experienced nagging feelings of doubt, and had gone to the web to search for more information about her. When those people found so little information about her there, they didn't know how to pursue it any further, and just gave up, accepting her story.
Hearing that, I decided to create a web site from all of my findings and questions, so that people searching the web for information on "Kaz" in the future would find it.
This is that web site.
While I have tried to present the evidence here in a fair and reasonable manner, I make no pretense of being unbiased.
I don't believe "Kaz's" story.
As the site's name implies, I believe that she should be stopped from making what I consider to be fraudulent claims, and I hope that this site helps to bring that about.
Navigating The Site

These buttons can be found at the top and bottom of every page, and, if you are viewing the "Frames" version of the site, they will also always be on the left side of your screen.
The sections of the site can be read in any order, but I believe they make the most sense if you read them in the order they appear in the menu of buttons: Home (this page), Who, Claims, Questions, Sources, FAQ and Contact..
