We’re back for the Super Sleuth Challenge.
Our crook this week started out selling roses at night clubs, but after deciding that wouldn’t make him rich, he graduated to defrauding a handful of Seattle banks out of $200,000. Eventually, he was caught. Guess which scenario tripped him up.
- He tried to cash a twenty dollar check at one of the banks he defrauded, using his own name, and one of the teller’s recognized him.
- He added a former Justice Department official as a Facebook friend and then bragged about what he’d done from Cancun.
- He recruited an undercover policeman to apply for a car loan, using fake pay stubs, and the policeman turned him in.

She’s his odds-on favorite
Running for mayor of his Mississippi town wasn’t even a twinkle in Peter Elliott’s eye. But it could bring Cedar Grove’s favorite son one step closer to his dream of building a youth center. He’d better watch out, though. Town councilwoman Nicole Montgomery has just thrown her hat into the ring.
The independent, smart-as-a-whip brunette is leagues away from the bookish girl Peter knew in high school. And he knows in his heart that Nicole would make a great mayor. So does his cousin Jake, who could be edging out Peter in his campaign to convince the love-wary beauty that he’s the best candidate for her.
