They won't be convicted because they never received any money. Appears you know very little about the facts in this case. So I'm "shaking my head " at your ignorance and foolish observations.

Shaking never said they would be convicted, she said it was bad, which it is. Reading comprehension is a golden thing! Now we get to shake our head in retaliation.

Sounds as if the news article is the one wrong then, they stated the women scammed a large amount of money.

The women are broke and never had a large sum of money. In fact they were only able to post bond through the generosity of some close family members.

News articles are written on information given and not always on facts uncovered. These women are living destitute and broke which reveals a whole lot about how much money they actually scammed. They have information the SBI desires so the story is portrayed as large than it actually is.

I will agree in general, can't believe everything we read. Stories do tend to get twisted sometimes making issues found much larger than they really are.

I will be careful to not lose too many. You're living proof that a man needs to keep as many of his marbles as possible and what happens when you don't, Hehe.

Well marble boy at least I'm dealing with facts about the case instead of gossiping redneck assumptions. I know the individuals involved and the truth which isn't found in the media propaganda being put out to the public. Anyway keep rattling your assumptions
you're truely demonstrating what happens when a man has lost a few.
