April 12, 2013 UCC

One thought on “New Updates on Sovereign Citizens Movement and Public Records Fraud

  1. The “Redemptionist” are growing in numbers because we are allowing them to build a portfolio through paper terrorism. If we focus on limiting the source of their perceived strength, we will be one step ahead. Put controls on the UCC that will deter the nosensical filings and the “Redemptionist” perception of power!
