A federal judge sentenced Bruce Jones to 12 years in federal prison for fraud. Over a 10-year period, Jones had managed to swindle almost $10 million from thousands of gullible people throughout the state.

He advertised his fantastic ideas on TV. "For some reason," Jones said, "TV seems to break the ice. Even though you are a total stranger to the viewer, once he sees you on TV in his home, he feels like he knows you. You enter his living room and become a trusted friend."

Jones had an imagination that wouldn't quit. One time he showed viewers an "official government" earthquake report which "proved" that the western half of California would collapse into the sea within three years. For $100, he said, Jones would insure your house and property for full value. Thousands of people who saw that TV ad sent him a hundred dollars each.

In another TV ad, Jones claimed that he had negotiated with the federal and state government for exclusive air rights. He told viewers that, for only $100, they could own the first 10 miles above all their property. You would be able to charge any commercial plane that flew over your property $100 per crossing. You would also be able to charge government rockets, satellites, space shuttles, and space stations $100 for each and every violation of your air rights.

Another time, Jones claimed to have invented a product that gets rid of calories. He showed the viewers a spray can of "NoCal." He said that by simply spraying NoCal on your food, a chemical interaction would cause all the calories in the food to simply evaporate within about 10 seconds. The NoCal was only $10 a can. As usual, Jones received thousands of checks in the mail.

The judge told Jones that he should be ashamed of himself. Jones responded that he was very ashamed of himself, and that when he got out of prison he hoped to become a TV consultant to help people avoid getting scammed. He told the judge that he was already developing an instructional CD that, for merely $100, would save people thousands of dollars in scams. The judge nodded, and then changed Jones's sentence from 10 years to 12 years.

Người đàn ông chịu 12 năm tù vì lừa đảo

Toà án liên bang tuyên án Bruce Jones đến 12 năm tù liên bang vì lừa dối. Hơn 10 năm, Jones đã lừa gần $10 triệu từ hàng ngàn người dễ bị lừa trong khắp tiểu bang.

Hắn quảng cáo ý tưởng trên TV. "Vì vài lý do," Jones nói, "TV dường như phá vỡ tảng băng. Ngay cả bạn là người hoàn toàn xa lạ với người xem, một khi thấy bạn xuất hiện trên TV ở nhà của họ, họ sẽ thấy như biết bạn. Bạn vào phòng khách của họ và trở thành một người bạn tin cậy."

Jones có một ma lực không thể rời được. Một lần hắn cho người xem thấy "một bản báo cáo chính thức của chính phủ" về động đất trong đó "chứng minh" là nửa tây California sẽ sụp đổ xuống biển trong ba năm tới. Với $100, hắn nói, Jones có thể bảo đảm nhà cửa và tài sản của bạn toàn bộ giá trị. Hàng ngàn người xem quảng cáo trên TV đó đã gửi cho hắn mỗi người $100.

Trong một quảng cáo TV khác, Jones tuyên bố hắn đã thương lượng với liên bang và chính phủ bang về đặc quyền không phận. Hắn bảo người xem là chỉ cần $100, họ có thể sở hữu 10 dặm phía trên tài sản của họ. Họ có thể tính tiền bất ỳ máy bay thương mại nào bay ngang tài sản của bạn $100 một lần qua. Bạn cũng có thể tính tiền tên lửa của chính phủ, vệ tinh, tàu không gian, trạm không gian $100 cho mỗi lần xâm phạm không phận của bạn.

Lần khác, Jones tuyên bố đã phát minh ra sản phẩm có thể loại trừ năng lượng. Hắn cho người xem thấy một ống phun tên "NoCal." Hắn nói chỉ cần phun NoCal trên thực phẩm, phản ứng hoá học xảy ra sẽ làm cho năng lượng trong thực phẩm đơn giản bay hơi trong 10 giây. NoCal giá $10 một bình. Như thường lệ, Jones nhận được hàng ngàn checks trong hộp thư.

Quan toà bảo Jones phải biết tự xấu hổ. Jones trả lời hắn rất tự xấu hổ, và khi hắn ra tù hắn hy vọng sẽ thành người cố vấn cho TV để giúp người ta khỏi bị lừa. Hắn nói với quan toà là hắn đã làm một CD hướng dẫn, với $100, có thể tiết kiệm hàng ngàn đô la khỏi mánh lừa đảo. Quan toà tán thành, và đổi mức án của Jone từ 10 năm sang 12 năm.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Một quan toà liên bang kết án Bruce Jones 12 năm tù tại nhà tù liên bang vì tội hừa gạt. Trong khoảng thời gian trên 10 năm, Jones đã xoay xở tìm cách lừa gạt gần 10 triệu đô-la của những người cả tin trên khắp tiểu bang.

Hắn quảng cáo những ý tưởng tuyệt vời của mình trên ti-vi. "Vì một vài lý do," Jones nói, "Ti-vi có vẻ là cách để làm tan bầu không khí ngại ngùng, e dè lúc ban đầu và để bắt chuyện với ngừơi khác. Cho dù bạn là người hoàn toàn xa lạ với các khán giả, chỉ một lần trông thấy bạn trên ti-vi lúc xem ở nhà, họ cảm thấy giống như họ biết bạn. Bạn đi vào phòng khách của họ và trở thành một người bạn đáng tin cậy."

Jones có một trí tưởng tượng vô tận. Một lần hắn cho khán giả thấy một bản báo cáo "chính thức của chính phủ" về động đất, bản báo cáo "xác nhận" rằng một nửa phía tây California sẽ đổ sập trong nước biển trong vòng ba năm nữa. Với 100 đô-la, hắn nói, Jones sẽ đảm bảo căn nhà và tài sản của các bạn giữ nguyên giá trị. Hàng ngàn người xem đoạn quảng cáo đó trên ti-vi đã gởi cho hắn mỗi người 100 đô-la.

Trong một đoạn quảng cáo khác trên ti-vi, Jones tuyên bố rằng hắn đã đàm phán với chính quyền liên bang và tiểu bang về quyền sử dụng khoảng không gian độc quyền. Hắn bảo khán giả rằng, chỉ với 100 đô-la, họ có thể sở hữu 10 dặm đầu tiên ở phía trên cơ ngơi của họ. Bạn có thể tính tiền bất kỳ chiếc máy bay thương mại nào bay ngang qua cơ ngơi của bạn với giá 100 đô-la. Bạn cũng có thể tính tiền các tên lửa, vệ tinh nhân tạo, tàu con thoi, và các trạm không gian của chính phủ với giá 100 đô-la cho mỗi hành động vi phạm quyền về không gian của bạn.

Một lần khác, Jones tuyên bố đã phát minh ra một sản phẩm giúp loại bỏ năng lượng. Hắn cho khán giả thấy một bình xịt gọi là "NoCal." Hắn nói chỉ bằng cách đơn giản phun NoCal vào thức ăn của bạn, một tương tác hoá học sẽ làm cho tất cả năng lượng trong thức ăn bốc hơi một cách dễ dàng trong vòng 10 giây. Một bình NoCal chỉ có 10 đô-la. Như thuờng lệ, Jone nhận hàng ngàn đăng ký trong hộp thư điện tủ.

Quan toà bảo Jones nên tự xấu hổ về bản thân hắn. Jones trả lời hắn vô cùng xấu hổ về bản thân mình, và cho biết khi nào ra tù hắn hy vọng trở thành một người tư vấn trên ti-vi để giúp mọi người tránh bị lừa gạt. Hắn nói với quan toà rằng hắn vừa thực hiện một CD hướng dẫn, chỉ với giá 100 đô-la, sẽ giúp mọi người tiết kiệm hàng ngàn đô-la trong những trò lừa gạt. Quan toà gật đầu đồng ý, và sau đó thay đổi bản án của Jones từ 10 năm lên 12 năm.
