Due Diligence do Violence

It was no use going after this guy until I found out whether

or not he was connected.

That meant computer work

All morning on Gina's laptop

Looking stuff up

Google - Martin Salzman

Took me to: Salzman Funeral Directors

The Goog coughed up a website and a short bio

Martin Salzman: Independent funeral home operations

Dot com

He posted photos of ostentatious churches where

he claimed to hold funeral services.

Home address: Aberdeen Road Scotch Plains NJ

Wife: Ann Salzman

Son: Stephen

Fact-checking. Checking facts.

Turned up Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts

The wife used Insta to show off her scrapbooking abilities and

fierce dedication to motherhood

On FB he was an average Joe

Family pics: birthday parties, holidays, vacations

Digging deeper.

I found an Ashley Madison membership

Only Fans was another frequent stop.

I called a few friends to see if Salzman

Was connected to or a friend of a friend

Maybe had a family member involved

No, no, and no.

I was satisfied, at that point, that my business with Martin

Salzman could proceed.

Going to a Fun...al.

Asking around
