SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – A Sarasota CPA tells News Channel 8 that haters are leaving profanity-laced voicemails, even sending death threats, because they think he’s connected to the infamous “shark dragging” video.

When the office is open, Wenzel hears the verbal abuse, live, over and over again.
“And if you hang up, they’ll call you right back,” said Wenzel.
