Blame-the-victim fraud is running riot in the current economic crisis
A very bright young man who works for a new UK government ageny (where all types of fraud can be reported by the public), has drawn my attention to the following, cruel insurance scam which is currently stealing around £350 millions each year in the UK http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11044315 . He immediately recognised the frightening, underlying similarity between this type of fraud and 'MLM' swindles.
The cruel insurance scam involves staging road crashes and then forcing innocent drivers to accept the blame so that inflated 'insurance claims' can be made. It is perpetrated by organized gangs of psychologically dominant men who target vulnerable (often elderly) individuals or commercial drivers who are less likely to argue about a fake 'insurance claim' against a vehicle which they do not own. In the UK, it has been estimated that approximately 30 000 crashes were staged last year, and some of the racketeers responsible have even registered their very own fake 'claims management' companies so that they can process their own fake 'insurance claims' more rapidly.
Blame-the-victim 'MLM' fraud is even more sinister, because, for more than 50 years, victims have been peddled the same so-called 'Independent Business' over which they have had effectively no control, but which has been maliciously designed to crash with them, apparently, alone at the wheel.Despite what its vile apologists steadfastly pretend to be reality,'MLM' victims have been peddled the same fake route-map to Utopia and told to drive their fake businesses at full speed and never to go for the brakes. The result has been economic carnage, but in some extreme cases 'MLM' victims have lost their lives.
