The colourful history of great money fraudsters. A thrilling read of the most unscrupulous swindles of mankind published in English in March 2011!

Throughout the history of mankind unscrupulous financial crooks have swindled billions from their gullible victims. These sophisticated crimes are spreading like wildfire.

He is the Criminal of the Century.

Ten of the world’s most interesting financial swindles are examined by Dr. Kari Nars in this unique book Swindling Billions. He reviews the nature and working methods of some of the great money fraudsters: what kind of people they really are, their thought processes, how they succeeded in cheating thousands of wealthy people, and what kind of people are liable to fall victim to such scams. Do they at all regret their nasty deeds?
