The $353 million con

Last edited Mon Sep 16, 2019, 06:52 PM - Edit history (1)



Steve Kroft's retirement from 60 Minutes causes a lot of YouTube videos to surface. Story about a con man on the run. At one point he bought an apartment in Trump Palace. He got several relatives and friends to pledge their homes as collateral for his $10 million bail bond. For some reason the Feds gave him four hours of freedom before reporting to prison, and that's when he disappeared - in 1998. He hasn't been seen since.
