    Who do you think is the biggest fakes of them all. The baddest con artist.

    It can be anyone you see in serials, movies or real life.

    Name the ones that you think.

    In the non-political arena, a case could be made for Bernard Madoff with his $50 billion ponzi scheme as being the greatest con artist.

    I would nominate Michael Milikin as runner-up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Milken). He was not only a great con artist, but he kept his wealth and spent almost no time the slammer.

    You could sell Islands,every american wants there own Island.
    It would be hard to check on there Island because its so far away.
    So you could down load a picture a small Island and put a price on it.
    You got a picture to down load for fun to look at. A Island would start at
    $10,000.000.

    I suspect Bernard Madoff set the standard though.

    A lot of the info-mercials are not scams, but pretty close.

    Like the drain-clog-remover. It is a clothes hanger with a mascaera brush on the end.

    $20 + $7.99 shipping and handling.

    Or the investment bankers, the reason why we have to pay so much tax and owe more money than I could count in my lifetime.
