Welcome to the club--the club you wish couldn't join--of people taken by Tommy. It may be some slight consolation to know he is not getting out this month (he was due to be released next week). I don't know why his stay was extended. Maybe the efforts of some club members?
Of course, none of that helps pay the bills, and I think all of us have bills we are struggling to pay because of this guy. Like you, I thought I was smart, but he is very good at what he does, i.e. lie/cheat/steal.
I'm sorry you got taken. You have our condolences.
