    Is it possible to view pictures and records of people who spent prison time for embezzlement or fraud. Craig A. is moving around the country collecting life insurance checks from people his ex’s wife has been a care giver. He’s conned a lot of people out of money. He’s taken a lot from me. People like him need to be on a list such as Megan’s list. Its a shame people get away with this because there is no way to check.
