Follow the money

(At the risk of the masked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson, accusing us of being the rabid adherents of an 'international anti-capitalist cult' who blindly believe all legitimate business to be a fraud).
Based on the courageous testimony of some of its victims, the reality-inverting corporate mask known as the 'India Today Book Club' has obviously been hiding an elementary advance fee fraud. Typically, this ugly deception has involved the manipulation of individuals' instinctual desires.
Countless, ill-informed Indian citizens have been induced to hand over their money in exchange for cheaply-procured wampum (which they would never want to buy in the cold light of day) by progressively bedazzling them with what appear to be more and more attractive future rewards.
As ever, an old maxim applies:
'If something seems too good to be true, then it probably is too good to be true.'
I sincerely hope that the victims of 'India Today Book Club' can recover their losses, but I think it's pretty safe to assume that, just like 'Amway India Enterprises,' the grinning dummies registered as the corporate officers of this fake company will not be the persons who have pocketed the lion's share of its illegal profits.
