Re: Fraud Within Our Group...



Dave,
In MY opinion only, I think you should identify him.

If he is ill or has some other problem, maybe someone
on the list can shed some light on the subject.

If you really have been cheated, you may save someone
else on the list from suffering the same fate.

I hope you are able to resolve this.

73,
