$20 million dollars has been found underneath someone’s mattress. A recent photograph released by the U.S. Attorney’s office confirms that the money amassed was in relation to a pyramid scheme that sold VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) via a telephone ‘service’…basically a big-time scam.
It’s assumed by authorities that approximately one million people across the globe were swindled out of nearly two billion dollars. Cleber Rene Rizerio Rocha (could you get a more suspicious name?) was charged with conspiring to money launder at the age of only twenty eight. Personally I can’t help but think that you’d need to be a little thick to hide so much money under a mattress. I mean, really? Why not do a Walter White and hide it in a storage warehouse. If you ever got people sniffing around your house I’m pretty sure they’d upturn your bed quickly. But you’ve got to hand it to the guy, he’s managed to make a hell of a lot of money in a rather unique way. I’m judging him a little for not being creative enough with his hiding places but to be honest, I’m judging the people that fell for this scam more. Guys, never trust a cold caller.
