Faceplant of Decade?
Normally, this award goes to stupidest, idiotic, and faceplant-ish event of the year. Well – this year’s faceplant was possibly the event of the decade.
Do you remember the awardee for the worst casino group for the past several years? Revenue Jet and Winpalace? And do you remember the warnings and rogue listings I made for these properties since their early days of operation? Well this all came into fruition when the owner of these two casino groups was arrested in Tel Aviv, and is currently waiting for his extradition to the United States for a number of charges to include conspiracy to commit securities fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, five counts of securities fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit identification document fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, aggravated Identity theft, and a number of other high crimes (not misdemeanors).
This guy has been stealing people’s databases, hiring hackers to perform DDOS attacks (like what we experienced some years ago). “You reap what you sow” is the catch-phrase which comes to mind. If you play fair, you will make a fair and reasonable living. If you make your livelihood by cheating, hacking, and stealing – well, you are destined for a proverbial moment of the pavement being implanted with your face.
Truly the Faceplant of the Decade.
