The legend of Jacinto’s Gold

BloombergBusinessweek/Joe Nocera/4-10-2019

“‘It is more difficult admitting you’ve been fooled than it is allowing yourself to be fooled,’ a particularly wise post in the WhatsApp groups read. “But when you walk without shoes, and someone is offering you three and four hundred million dollars, and you think your children will not have a hard life, and you are riding a donkey and you are suddenly changing it for an airplane, the brain creates an illusion and you believe it. But there is no money, brother.”  – with Monica Cordera Sancho

USAGOLD note:  Bloomberg introduces this story intriguingly: “Two Dominican families, their lawyer and a quest for ancestral riches that may not exist.” A long but interesting read. . . . .
