All I can tell you is this was told to me as a first hand experience by a trusted friend. She told me and asked if I I knew any way to get the word out and see if this was happening all over. I’m not vouching for it other than knowing this person well and doubting any chance of her making it up.
I turned to FR (where I’m seldom active after a membership of 14+ years). I figured people would weight in on it and give a pretty good read on other experiences.
Don’t think it’s an urban legend as this was, I repeat, a first hand experience.
