Folks, ordinarily I'd agree about this sounding like B.S. However, I know Steve, and he doesn't deal in B.S. This is exactly the sort of thing he does for a living, and he's quite good at it. I have no reason to think it didn't go down just as he described. The building where my own agency is located was penetrated just as easily by a hired contractor some months ago. Security is an illusion. Cheers, RGF Robert G.
