I think I have somewhere a copy of the passport of Stevie "wonder" Snelson, at least that was his name back then when he was with Delty, KAL and Jetair. If you need that just let me know.
His name was never Kaufman. That is a ironic meaning when you connect it to a crook.
There was alot of money involved back at the time, almost 300 Pilots contributed 10k´s each. Maybe used all up until today and needs some cash flow again and tries the same cash cow now.
