I'm sure the 2008 knife catchers and current bag holders were sure they had stolen this house at $258/sf. The sad part is that the 2 "bedrooms are more like closets and the single bath is actually a 3/4 bath. See below:

I would like to direct my fellow small-scale-scam watchers to a couple of excellent posts by "Richard Smith", who occasionally posts at Yves Smith's blog:

Bernie O’Brien, the Scammer who can Scam Scammers

Catching white-collar criminals is part of my day job, so I suppose this is why I find it to be so fascinating, but I think even a general audience will find it to be a great read. The gist of the narrative rings true; big-scale scammers love finding small-scale scammers, because they know that they will be the last people in the world to go to the police. Particularly, you know, small-scale scammers with easy access to money from their own sweet™ deals.
