Wesley Snipes: Ponzi Victim?

After all his tax troubles (and "Blade Trinity"), now it turns out Wesley Snipes may also have been the victim of a ponzi scheme.

According to the NY Post Wesley Snipes was also a victim of a ponzi scheme, carried out by a Scamming British investment firm. Who was giving Wesley Snipes financial advice all this time? His tax troubles are downright bizarre, with him allegedly claiming that some obscure legal technicality meant he didn't have to pay taxes, and claiming he was a "non resident alien" whatever that means, even though he is a US citizen and was born here.

He's still out on bail from those original tac charges while he appeals, so more unflattering news can't be welcome for Snipes. But at least this time the accusation is that he's the victim of a ripoff, and not the one ripping off the government

Wesley Snipes: Ponzi Scheme Victim?

A court case in Britain has revealed that Snipes may have lost millions of dollars in an alleged Ponzi scheme. Lincoln Fraser and Jared Brook, the two former bosses of a now-defunct British investment firm Imperial Consolidated, went on trial in London at the end of last month accused of defrauding as many as 3,000 victims out of nearly $400 million...

Here is a video from the coverage of his previous money worries:

Humble Don. I'm not sure exactly what point you were making in your response to this article. I don't think the point of this article was to "help the American people or our way of life". This is just a blurb about Wesley Snipes, not a self help or budget balancing column. It is just an article about Wesley Snipes and his attempt to evade taxes. The next time you want to make a point, make it. Otherwise, please keep your thoughts to yourself while smoking pot and watching Scooby Doo.

See, say one word about a person who is black, and they're all over you. Den, learn english. Whoever is ONE word. Didn't has an apostrophe. There is no comma after "are" numbnut. The word AND should never be the first word after a period. The word "to" is spelled "too" in the sentence you used it in. The word "do" should be capitalized....it starts a new sentence. "Till" is not a word....it would be "until". Maybe YOU should do some research...and go back to school. And don't "axe" me my name....I don't know how to spell it.
