Multilevel Schmuck

Step 1: Use infomercials to sell vitamins, fraudulently claiming that they treat cancer, diabetes, etc.
Step 2: Set up a MLM scheme, convincing people that they can get rich quick selling your vitamins.
Step 3: Profit
Step 4: Get indicted on 41 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and promotional money laundering, after defrauding an estimated 220,000 victims of more than $50 million.
Step 5: Slit your throat in prison.

Short version.
Full history on Quackwatch.

Just imagine. 220,000 people. That's like the entire population of Irvine sitting around, each with a box of worthless vitamins they spent hundreds of dollars on. Dollars they'll never see again.

Makes me want to hug a banker, credit card executive, or payday loan officer, for their altrustic service to the community.
