Mr. Spears had a thriving business outside of Chicago, in Lake County Indiana, making all kinds of fake identification documents – he made drivers’ licenses, handgun permits, high school diplomas, etc.

He was a bigger diploma mill than Phoenix University.

Autumn is here. With it comes a crisp feeling in the air, leaves turning, the start of the Supreme Court term on the First Monday in October (for a preview of sorts, please see my guide to bluffing your way through knowledge of the upcoming term), and a slowdown in the pace of published opinions coming from our nation’s federal appellate courts.

Why the slowdown? My suspicion is that as old law clerks leave the service of their appellate judges at the end of August to be replaced by new clerks — much as old leaves fall from trees to make way, eventually, for new buds — the work of the old clerks issues in late August and the work of the new clerks has yet to be rendered in a state fit for publication.

Though perhaps I’m mistaken.

Like many Americans, Leslie Onyesoh had a credit card problem. His problem, however, wasn’t maxing out her cards or making the minimum payment.

His problem was that when postal inspectors raided his home, they found a spreadsheet containing 500 expired credit card numbers.

One can assume that they were someone else’s expired credit card numbers.
