    Cleantech Con Artists: A True Vegas Caper - Interview with Author/Historian Jim Rossi

    Cleantech Con Artists: A True Vegas Caper - Interview with Author/Historian Jim Rossi

    Cleantech Con Artists: A True Vegas Caper - Interview with Author/Historian Jim Rossi
    This week, Ruin a Bad Guy's Day Radio interviews Jim Rossi, Author and Historian of the new book: "Cleantech Con Artists: A True Vegas Caper." Jim is a nationally acclaimed author and a LinkedIn Top Voice with over 430,000 followers! Jim and Skip discuss this fantastic non-fiction story about crime and corruption set in Las Vegas. 
    Jim Rossi: His first book is "Cleantech Con Artists: A True Vegas Caper," a nonfiction, first-person, man-bites-dog story of fraud and history. Set in Las Vegas, the story begins during his graduate study there. He's currently at work on his second book, "Reverse-Engineering the Echo Chamber," about how the history of communications technology has affected information, free speech, and politics - and what we can do to find and learn from different perspectives.
    Fraud costs Americans over a trillion dollars per year. So in Sin City, we made fraud prevention into an extreme sport.
    Las Vegas, founded on the idea of getting people to not think about the long-term consequences of their actions, seems like the last place anyone would go to study history and sustainability. But look closer. Las Vegas is also the City of Second Chances, the surrounding Mojave Desert a land of mirages. Here the line separating reality and fantasy gets blurred. So do the lines separating graduate school, entrepreneurship, journalism, and fraud.
    When I first went local, enrolling at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, I made new friends - and a few enemies. Among them: a young British tycoon who bought Mike Tyson’s mansion, poker players and golf hustlers, FBI agents and ex-cons, friendly neighborhood bounty hunters, and one charismatic frenemy: a young, clean energy technology entrepreneur named Xavier.
    As The Strip seduces me, I uncover a complex maze of scams ranging from Photoshop forgeries, mortgage fraud, identity theft, and crowdfunding to hacking, hypnosis, and intellectual property theft. The schemes span from Sin City to the Rocky Mountains, China, and into the headquarters of Silicon Valley’s best-known clean energy nonprofit. As privacy disappears in the 21st century, turnabout is fair play. The hunter becomes the hunted. In Sin City, you can be whoever you want to be – but you have to pay the consequences. 
    What is the ultimate Vegas rush: pulling off a multimillion-dollar con job – or blowing one up?

Really enjoy the interviews with fraud experts. Different perspectives and levels of experience make this podcast enjoyable and educational. Keep it going!

Jim_Rossi ,

Author, Cleantech Con Artists

I was a recent guest on this podcast, and the reason why I made it a top priority to get on this podcast is that it's a concise, entertaining, and up-to-date fraud-fighting resource. Skip gets right to the point without the throat-clearing and masturbatory promotion so ubiquitous in the podcast/weblog world. File this under "news you can use."

This is very informative...different perspectives and good advice.
