DailyDirt: Cheaters Sometimes Prosper...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

If you're going to commit a crime, there's a certain amount of logic to trying to pull off the biggest crime you can. Why risk going to jail over a relatively small amount of money? If you can get away with a multi-milion dollar heist, you only have to do it once (if you're not too greedy). And if you get caught, you might have the resources to escape the authorities. Here are just a few examples of some scams that might have demonstrated that crime can pay. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
