I don't get people. If I come up with a good con, I'm out the day I have a new ID and €3 million in an account in a non-extradition country. What good is $100 million? Especially if it puts you in jail?

I think it is hubris, they think they are way too smart and clever to ever be caught.

Seriously this. Like wtf $1-2mil in the bank in some places is enough to get a new passport. Invest $50k in the local cop bar and you're untouchable

FTFA:
A man once dubbed "King Perry" was sentenced Thursday to more than 17 years in prison for his role in masterminding a long-running investment scam that collected more than $115 million from 1,000 investors nationwide.

OK so far...

Also FTFA:
Perry Santillo appeared in federal court in Rochester, New York, more than two years after pleading guilty to mail fraud and conspiracy. A federal judge also ordered him to pay $103 million in restitution.

Uhhhh... so... correct me if I'm wrong here, but $115 million minus $103 million leaves him with $12 million left over. That's not a bad nest egg waiting for him when he gets out.

I guess it's true what they say, crime really does pay. Oh we don't say that? Maybe we should.

In a letter to the court, Santillo expressed regret and said he is "haunted by the devastation I have caused to so many. ... I am truly ashamed of my choices."


"And I was totally about to stop before I got caught. Super pinkie swear"

Remind me to never, ever invest in a ground-floor lucrative investment opportunity you present me where even the Wall Street fat cats don't know about it yet.

Unless, of course, it's an absolute lock and I can't lose!

That's sad.  She seemed such a nice girl, too.

"To ensure a fresh supply of victims, Santillo and his confederates bought the businesses". Strange use of the word confederates. I don't see it used that way often.

Manslaughter, 10 years, out in 5.
Ponzi, get 17 years, in the federal system.

As others before have mentioned, truly the biggest crime in the American justice system is stealing from the rich.

When that three million comes so quickly, and effortlessly...the target becomes 5 million...then 10 million because you'd live an even better life when you quite.
Then you say to yourself "well, if they are just "giving" me the money, is it really a crime?"
And by then you have a lot of fancy accountants telling you just how well they are doing their job of hiding your tracks because you pay them so much.
