  • “If he pays back the money, he will only do six months jail time.”

    I wonder what the time limit is on that and what the jail time for non-payback is.

    If he was desperate enough to scam his friends the money is probably long gone, to address some other financial malady.

  • You’d have to be a gull, a total dupe, to fall for something like this. A second’s reflection would show such a play would be legally actionable by Ms. Battle, even in this country.
