Why do you feel any of the above issues would be mitigating factors?

You seem to think they are, not me.

I'm truly sorry you're offended by remarks I never made. I'll try to be more understanding of your needs next time.

You are speculating that perhaps there are external factors for his behavior. As a lesson in psychology they are perhaps interesting questions. In fact, by asking these questions, you are suggesting there are mitigating factors. Maybe you had something else in mind, but I was responding to your actual words.

With regard to MLS and other crooks, I think in terms of what Nick in The Great Gatsby thinks: "Conduct may be founded on the hard rock or the wet marshes, but after a certain point I don't care what it's founded on." In other words, spare me your excuses about your difficult circumstances and act decently.

The question was primarily to find out if he's a coke head or not. As far as I know all behavior is influenced by external factors, if one wishes to have a behavior modified is it not helpful to mark the triggers. Sometimes a bullet in the brain is effective too but not entirely what many would consider civil or decent.

DING DING DING! Don't read too far into it. I don't think he's trying to make excuses, just simple curiosity.

Totally agree with mziegler, people must be responsible for themselves!!

He's a stupid, greedy, SOB... That's pretty much all there is to it imho. Someone with a little bit of ethics wouldn't have done a tenth of what Schifty did. He just wanted more $, and thought he could get away with it. I'm sure he made quite a bit of cash with av321.gone, he just blew it on crap, and even if at one point he had some trouble with the business, instead of trying to just ride the wave and cut a little here and there, he just wanted to maintain the lifestyle and thought he could get away with screwing people.

C'mon guys, we all know that too much overseas travel really screwed up his biological clock, and messed with his sleep patterns. That in turn caused severe psychological disturbances which let to him keep the raffle funds. So, it was a temporary illness brought on by being pushed too far because of overwork and a biological clock that crashed.

he's a scam artist...not a serial killer.....sheesh

what I find amusing is his target demographic, not old ladies, not the poor, but people with money and education who went apeshit over cheap speakers, lmfao

He got caught, who cares what the reasons he did it for. Trust me in his neck of the woods there is going to be a raffle every night to see who gets to win his dance card that night.

I know of no drug addiction nor any gambling problem. He liked to feel important and to enjoy his version of the good life. He was also a self-professed gourmand who enjoyed sampling pink taco around the world.

I'm sure there's a punchline involving cheese here somewhere.

Here's a nice shot of him at the beginning of his quest.

I understand he also recently took up para-sailing.

WTF is 2 years work release?
post #1402 of 1523
He gets to leave the lock up to go to work. Maybe it is so he can make the restitution.

Wait wait. So he's going to be in jail for 2 years? And only get to leave for work? Is that right?
post #1404 of 1523
That's the way I read it -- two years of nights and weekends in the pokey, allowed to leave during the day to work.

Not sure what he's going to do, since his company has evaporated.

Well, his 'company' was part of the facilitator in his con/scams, so even if it was still upright, they (courts) wouldn't let him 'work' there.

Whatever it is, it's gonna be something mundane so he can't scam/con people (or at least it would be difficult), and they can keep a tight leash on him. The courts will probably 'place' him in something. Maybe even a charity, to do some real charity work!

With this thread being locked at times, not sure when I'll get to post an update again. So, after 7 months the results are as follows:

S&P +2.85%

My Portfolio +11.85%
