Not sure I agree with you there, Swing... he was pitching "investments"
that *should have* sounded too good to be true. The people he swindled
were looking for a high rate of return *and simultaneously* a guarantee
of low risk, which are mutually exclusive -- IOW, they were trying to
get something for nothing, or something for not-very-much, by trying to
obtain the gain without taking the risk. And I would not describe that
behavior as completely honest.
I had a youngish couple in a late model Ram PU (HOT-LOOKING CHICK in the
passenger seat doing the talking!) sing out to me in the HEB parking lot the
other day wanting to know if I wanted a complete big screen, flat panel
entertainment system including the blu-ray and surround sound. They had an
'extra' one from their 'job.'
