1,000 Years

An Egyptian con man gets an enormous jail term. He's apparently been doing it for over 20 years. Notable excerpt.....

As an unemployed man, his family argue, Mohammed was merely trying to make a living.

Maybe, but a guy with that sales ability should have been able to find honest work. Not that he was unique.......

Such cases come to light regularly in Egypt, where working middle class people seem ready to hand their life savings to a person they hardly know in return of a promise of 20% profit to be returned on monthly basis.

Greed and gullibility are indeed worldwide phenomena.
