    They arrested the wrong person. They should have arrested all the people who believed her for their STUPIDITY. As P.T. Barnum said long ago "There is a sucker is born every minute"
    If something sounds too good to be true, then it is so.

    Faqi, It is not stupidity, perhaps naivity. But the people can't see any progress in their lives,they tend to believe those who offer such great opportunities. Yes we can educate them on fraudsters and opportunists but they need help. As long as they are left destitute, new fraudsters, opportunists, racketeers and pyramidsts will get them.

    Those who invested in those organizations too wanted higher returns than normally offered by other banks and finance companies.
