"Amish Mafia" is a new show on Discovery and things keep coming out that the show is not real at all. On Jan. 11, Daily Lebanon News reported that two local police are speaking out saying that they do not know of any "Amish Mafia."
Steven Echternach and Jonathan Heisse work with groups in the area and also the District Attorney. They said that they don't know of an "Amish Mafia" at all and if it did exist they would know about it. Strasburg's police chief went on to say: "It's not a complete blatant lie, but the characterization is very misrepresentative."
The people on the show grew up Amish, but it doesn't sound like they ever actually joined the Amish church. They said that all Amish people know that is not true at all.
One shop owner said that she is not really taken care of by the "Amish Mafia." There is a lot of information coming out that the show is fake.
