Scam? It was just disruption of the financial and legislative markets.

I think I met this fugitive on-line, under an assumed name… the G-men should be on the lookout for a “Joe Blow”.

Too crooked to fail. /s

“Your honour, my client was simply trying to onboard new paradigms of non-crypto-currency transfers with the goal of increasing win-win synergies between key stakeholders. Why does the prosecution hate innovation and capitalism?”

If I can run a scam where I make $600 million, and if caught I only stand to lose $43.7 million, I will run that scam. Hell, I’ll do it for a $1 million profit margin.

(Goldman Sachs-- you can contact me through my user ID here, thanks.)

Can you plan that sort of scam? If so, they might actually be interested.

Spare us a thought when you’re loafing on your Caribbean island.
