It took them *how* long to catch up with these scammers?

Russ Whitney (the partner in crime mentioned in the article), has been active since at least 1984, and died just over a year ago. He got away with it all this time.

One of the many tricks they employed was to book a delibarately too small hotel conference room to make the sales events look really popular, and make sure there's never enough seats.

Also, why do scammers always like to paint their faces orange?
