McTim-  Thank you for your time on this and bringing this insightful
scenario to light.  It is a clever "probability";-)

I will leave it for the lawyers to bring accusations. From my viewpoint, it
does not really matter who the source is at this instance, I appreciate once

investigate such, and make the required  'corrections', as not doing so does
materially affect my credibility!
