I just read the recent article about the disappearance of Ed Fitzgerald, “Where is Ed Fitzgerald?”(SC Times, July 12 and DP Times, July 13).
I was one of his many victims and have lost several thousand dollars.
I filed a report with the OC Sheriff when he disappeared and no one has ever followed up with me since.
In this case, crime paid, and many innocent victims picked up the bill.
It’s amazing to me that our criminal justice system is so non-responsive.
I appreciate you keeping this story alive. People should learn from this, that if they get involved with something that smacks of fraud, they need to be careful, because the legal system is not necessarily going to provide much help.
