Vegas ~ 10/30/12

Simon Gann AKA Ari Channis ~ is now in Vegas.
Here is the latest news article on him: Con Man Plays Game of Cat-and-Mouse

The problem with this article is it doesn't really cover the depth of how long he has been doing this. Nor does it explain that his brother Jordan was released from Jail in Florida a few months ago - so these two could be working together at this point.

What I AM thankful for is that his face is now out there again!
