I would be real careful of doing publicity on this couple.

It was reported on CNN that both the Husband and Wife are SCAMMERS and are
wanted for check fraud and passing BAD CHECKS on CLOSED ACCOUNTS. They are
also RUNNERS, big time.

If I were you, I would do a complete investigation of them before I would
CHECK 'EM OUT real good.

to FEAR, that leads to HATE that leads to OPPRESSION and
that leads to BEHAVIOR that re-enforces the FEAR, and on and on
and on. And just like a FUNGUS that breeds best in dank darkness,
