I live within (long) walking distance of Brooklyn Bridge, and we all know it has been sold many times. What it represents is fraud. Andrew Tarantola:
Scammers, fraudsters, and confidence men have existed since we invented commerce. If there’s a system of valuation in place, there are angles to be worked and Brooklyn Bridges to be sold. The rise of social media and our always-connected lifestyles have only compounded the problem, giving unscrupulous hucksters access to virtually every mark the world over. But social platforms taking action to put an end to these fraudulent financial assaults.
What is it P.T. Barnum said? “A sucker is born every minute.” Unfortunately, they buy things and participate in elections.
