Case Notes:

It is difficult to record the story of a 'real life war hero' who has no military experience whatsoever. Many of the infamous fake warriors that are exposed on these pages have some service to embellish and in many cases years of service that is simply embellished to enhance a career, gain access to taxpayers' money, or impress a partner or mates.

 Not so in this case. Frederick Richard Heinze was born on the Twenty-First of September 1946; he is a Virgo-Libra cusp child. That is where he has been every since, a wandering adolescent claiming dubious military service. Of course Fred travelled the predictable path all wannabes follow. He claims to be a member of Australia's Special Forces, the Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment, and during his obligatory tour of duty in Vietnam he was a helicopter pilot. As you will read below, he was not an officer flying helicopters in Vietnam as he was commissioned some ten years after the war.

So confident of the Walter Mitty life he built for himself that he included these claims in his résumé. 

It was only when he made application to join a gun club was his military questioned and during an interview he defiantly refused to answer questions saying that his "CV" was correct and he stood by that document authenticity. Of course the "CV" was a fraudulent document, as he has no military service. He had laid his integrity and honest open for verification so the gun club requested specific information from the army records section. The committee has the responsibility to be satisfied of every applicant's character for suitability for membership. 

The army did conduct a full search of its records and they advised the gun club that no Frederick Richard HEIZE, born 21 September 1946, had ever served in the Australian Army.

Fred Heinze resides in Victoria and has been, maybe still is, a member of the Australian Clay Target Association joining that group in 1968. Our gun-toting hero states that his military service was from 1966 to 1974, five years as a SAS soldier (1966-71), then an officer from 1982-87. Of course anyone who has experience in these matters could and would quickly confront him and expose him as a fraud, conman and shyster.

If you are live in the Wonthaggi and Dandenong district of Victoria you may well know Frederick Richard Heinze. If that is the case, next time you meet with him look him in the eye and tell him that you know all about the would-be hero status he boasts about. While doing that you might as well tell him he has made the Internet pages of shamed exposing military wannabes. Tell him to contact CPMH by email; they would appreciate a recent photograph to update his file.

The aim of CPMH, and this web site, is to bring these wannabe misfits, with the Fred Heinze fantasy, to the public's notice.

All Heinze's claims are false.
