You found your calling!!!

OMG! I know you are from the south, and your Cousins (us) from the South(North West Florida) LOVE YOUR true stories. I can’t get enough! I can’t believe you found another, crazy Loony Tune in Ca who steals from hard working people! 😢
PS my mother in law was a Walton from Auburn,Al area. So you are probably related to my HUSBAND!!!!! Squeeeeeellll!!! I know you are from Texas!
Keep investigating and reporting back to us.
I’m so sorry for all the people who lost money from criminals. I guess that’s why we will always be broke, 401-k is the only investments we have. Thanks John, 🤓
