Read the article this morning. Bit strange how they put the ‘BTW he’s dead’ part so far down a very long (and well-done) piece. My first thought at that point though was 3:1 odds he faked his death and is in Fiji cooking up another scam.

At least it’s It’s far more believable than death via completely treatable gastrointestinal disease, like that bitcoin scammer!

"pitched itself to stay-at-home Facebook moms "

are you sure this wasn’t pitched at Genx or millenials? Boomers are too old to be stay at home moms -grandmoms? sure - some great grandmoms

I thought the whole deal with the republican party was to scam boomers out of their money in general.

If there’s an opportunity for this option to work, it’s surely the option they will go with. You can’t be those kinds of people and just walk away from the possibility of millions, especially once the scheme has proven viable.

Yep. Once a grifter, always a grifter. Even the supposedly reformed ones who put on white hats will tell you that.

Him and Epstein are roommates, no doubt!

No! Their modus operandi is to scam everybody out of their money. They do not limit their con jobs to boomers, senior citizens, democrats, other republicans, religious fundamentalists, racists, or to any particular group.

The grift must flow.
