20/20 Recap: Shannon Lee & Qiana Johnson lead list of daring moochers in America (10/24/14)

Tonight, 20/20 alerted the public on the threats that moochers give to unsuspecting victims. The criminal acts are profound and are a menace to one’s level of security. Moochers are loosely defined as people who get things for free either by stealing, begging or constantly asking for favors. However, those featured tonight have gone to great lengths, beyond fun, to sneak up and practically rob individuals and the system to get what they want. Leading the list are broker Shannon Lee (photo in this recap) and Qiana Johnson; Lee was arrested and jailed for forging documents to pass herself as…
