Share your stories or the stories of someone you were helping.

One i was helping with turned out to be a fraud. A whole stack of alias names and even pretended to be a doctor after stealing the papers of a real doctor. Its a real long story but in short he married around 7 times, a different name each time, a whole bunch of kids to. One wife suicided, and HE signed off on her death while pretending to be a doctor. Two other wives "disappeared" pretty much straight after they married him. We never found any trace at all on them. I personally wonder if he murdered them :confused:
A interesting search to be involved in tho he was not a nice man at all.

VAL if you read this it should be back memories for you as well,. ;)
