Rayelan Smith, who uses multiple other pseudonyms, asked me to put up the website for Alex and Laura on July 25, 2011. I was told I would be paid both for the site and for writing Alex's biography. For the next several weeks I interviewed Alex nearly every day for hours.
The website was up on July 26, 2011.
Email from Laura
25 - Laura calls Melinda for the first time, Melinda's number provided to Laura by Raye Smith.
Only much later would I learn the entire scam was set up by Craig Franklin, Morgan and Jay Gell, and his associates at GHS to take down a website which provided them with more transparency than they found comfortable. Raye appears to have been hired to assist with their plans and then she added Alex and Laura to the attack team.
