The Fugitive

As some of you may remember, I recently posted an apartment for rent ad. The apartment became available because the guy who had it disappeared.

The police called me today. Seems they're very interested in some information I've turned over to the bail bondsman. The guy who vanished is now officially a fugitive from justice and a bail bondsman is probably out about 50K. It also turns out that he didn't give his car to a single mom (despite his claims.) He left it at the airport and hopped a flight to Germany. It seems he's a con artist who scams money off of people (my favorite was when his work started raising money to pay for medical treatment of his brain tumor) and his latest crime was buying a bunch of antiques, but forgetting to pay for them.

Oh man
It sounds like your ex-neighbor just graduated from the small-time. I know a few skip tracers and bail bondsmen. They're all uniformly crazy-go-nuts people. If I were stiffing one at all -- let alone stiffing one on 50K -- Germany would only be the first step in a long journey.
