EP. 235.5 — Fraud Fridays: The Polygamist Peddler w/ Vicky Vox

What’s poppin’, con-gregation? This week we revisit our episode where Vicky Vox and Laci expose the conman who pocketed over $250,000 dollars from a government biofuel program. But to be fair, he did have three wives to feed. In other polygamy news, they cover another Mormon mastermind who tried to give his parole the slip. Stay schemin’!
