How stupid can you be?

Pretty stupid it seems.

I'm watching a show in CNBC about greed and frauds.

One of the events featured is a guy who scammed the regular's in a private home poker game with a Ponzi/check kiting scheme. Many thousands.

In the poker game his habit of shorting the pot is so well known that they make jokes about it.

And they gave this guy tens of thousands of cash at a time to "invest".

I'lll never understand people.

Update: The second scam recruits most of the "investors" in the Circus/Circus poker room in Reno.

Barry Hunt is the guy's name. In Reno he used the name Jonathan Firestone. Anybody know him?
