Vargas has called in to say he has never done this a single time. I guess these strangers over the years have conspired against him in a plan to lie to me? Here is one example from a few months ago. The dialogue is recreated as I remember it. I was with a police commander in Arizona...
Commander: Oh, I am sorry I could not help your friend out.
Me: yeah, uh...huh...what now? What friend?
Commander: Your friend from Illinois. Vern...something like that. Vargas. He said he was from around Chicago. Illinois.
Me: You mean Fernan Vargas?
Commander: Yeah. Him.
Me: What did he want now?
Commander: He told me he is a friend of yours and that you told him to call me and ask me if he could do a police seminar here.
Me: He did! Well, I don't know this guy at all. He probably saw your name as the contact on my police seminar webpage and decided to call you. Years ago he mined every name of every instructor from my webpage that I had listed and contacted everyone with some kind of a sales pitch. I don't know the guy. I didn't tell him to do anything.
That's one sample. Need I go on? I guess the police commander and these other people who don't know each other are mysterious lying about Vargas.
