    A Million Monopolies - The Jerome Jacobson Files (Revisited)

    The McDonald's scam documentary,  "McMillions" (HBO, 2020) would be the first time that many would hear the name Jerome Jacobson. Having snuffed just around $24 million from under their noses, one would think that more would have been known about one of the biggest scams of the century. This week we reexplore how Jerome Jacobson got away with the biggest con at the turn of the century. We revisit this episode as part of the Scam Kings refix.

    Miserly Mister Scrooge: The Ebenezer Scrooge Files

    On this episode, we visit a classic tale with a message. There is nothing more scammy than a bad boss who refuses to pay you for your work.
