Why doesn't someone look into the bill /unpaid work? What kind of person are they appointing? What message are the sending? His sister did the same thing to a bunch of workers. You should take them to court

I don't know either of these men, personally or professionally. But I know the danger of accusing someone of criminal activity in a public forum, and you guys should probably step back and decide whether it's worth it. Before you say something defamatory or libelous - if you haven't already.
