    I see your faces are just as beautiful as ever. That's what happens when I leave for half a year.

    So I come across this video while looking up unrelated music and thought to myself...those people at blackhatworld are the type to understand this. It's old news but hey; deal with it.
    The sum of this video is how utterly fucking stupid regular sheep (err..people) are when it comes to the mechanics of life. I see a kid who learned where the real money comes from & aimed to get it. He conned people OPENLY and that's what made him a scapegoat/posterboy for "bad people"...unlike those heroes we willingly hand money to since we appreciate people that con us in secrecy. This is because those sheep (the vast majority I'm afraid) are convinced they're victims because someone showed them how retarded they are. They live as "victims" and are convinced companies are actually being honest with them. He should have had empathy for those sheep?

    LIFE doesn't have empathy for anyone. People die, get raped, stolen from, aborted etc every single day. Money tends to make life a fuckload better - a teenager earned (yes earned. you all know how fucking hard it is to convince people to hand you money) an impressive income doing the most effective things. We shouldn't hate this kid, we should wish to raise the same child who takes action instead of winds up a loser crying about how cruel the world is...and continuing to play nice.

    Thanks for reading folks. I do suggest getting money from the real con artists since sheep tend to be in a sinking boat. Unless you're that heartless..I don't judge.

    I disagree.

    He didn't earn any money.

    He stole money.

    And just because someone is gullible, or desperate, or stupid, does not make it OK to steal from them.

    And there is no way I would want to raise a child to be like him. If one of my children did that I would be ashamed of them and of myself.

    I can smell a penny stock scam from a mile away, but some people in the real world were born without noses (if you catch my drift).

    Is it unethical? Yes. Would I do is personally? No.

    Did he make a decent amount of money doing it?....

    I missed you funkybunker. Hope all is well with you. But I don't agree with this kid's behavior. He needs therapy. Something is wrong with him. As Duffers said, he is a narcissist. He is also void of empathy.

    He knows so much about stocks but doesn't know not to defraud a Bank that is FDIC insured and protected by the US Government. Defraud a FDIC insured Bank in the USA and you'll have the FBI looking for you and they're very resourceful. This kid isn't half as smart as he thinks he is. Probably best he stops now with his "marketing" ideas.

    I'll re-iterate. By no means do I agree with stealing from people...now comes the but. When you're a target (customer, enemy, prey etc) you are going to get attacked, it's not about being nice & I mean this from just how the world turns. Note there are many ways to "attack" a target (consistently convince them to trust you even if they shouldn't/shoot you/eat you) and everyone from major brands to the military do it everyday. But they don't make the news because their methods are so old we're accustomed to them. They're normal.

    To sum this up; the kid took action and made it happen. It was wrong (and effective) but I'm looking at the larger picture: he made it happen & everyone pities his victims while they're getting fucked in the ass 10x more by larger entities. I do shamelessly admit selling cookies for more money is brilliant - since it's just markup like EVERY retailer in the world.

    selling the bars for $2. more and keeping the profit is fine, since he was working.
    the rest is/was wrong and he did himself in.
