There's a certain weary familiarity about this; You provide (1) a URL
and (2) a vague, unsupported, and essentially incomprehensible opinion.
We know there is (or was) a court case between two parties. We know
that you think somebody-but-you-don't-say-who has committed a 'scam'.
And that's all we know. We don't know the gist of the case, whether
it's still going or not, what legal issue is/was involved, or why any of
Basically, you think it's newsworthy that you have an opinion, and if we
want to know more, we have to do a bunch of research.
You know how many of your readers are going to bother? Roughly zero.
I hope you know that.
