Talk about doing time. A couple in Thailand was sentenced to 12,640 years – each – for running a ponzi scheme. They were promising 93 percent return on investments, which we all know is bat---- crazy. Still, people flocked in to hand over their bahts. A baht is worth about three cents in the U.S.
These two ran more than 2,500 cons between March 9 2019 and October 30 of 2020. They ran a crew of seven people who promised investors incredible returns if they invested in mushroom, bee, and kratom farming.
The scammers clearly had fertile minds.
