How To Swindle Billionaires 2.0

While we always seem to love seeing the elites get their comeuppance, this goes much deeper.

On the surface, we see a whole bunch of people duped into believing that priceless art are within their grasp- we go deeper into the psychology of a sort of Mandela Effect- how even someone who should know better would rather believe the lie because the lie is so interesting, and revealing the truth makes one more infallible and able to be swindled in the first place.

A good con man/woman knows their audience, and a solid confidence game is often likely to take quite a while to wholly uncover, if it ever truly is. That anyone can fall victim to this is a good lesson to take away- and while there are people here who should be in prison, it's a lesson we've learned the hard way- the justice system is much more equitable the larger retainer paid to your representative.

A fascinating case study in the time-tested statement by PT Barnum; there's a sucker born every minute.
