A profitable fraud

leave a comment »

For years the self-styled Sai Baba carried out obvious frauds on people who wanted to believe. Obviously for profit, as ET reported after his death:

Around Rs 12 crore in cash and nearly 100 kg of gold were found from Yajur Mandir, the personal chamber of late spiritual guru Sathya Sai Baba, at Prashanti Nilayam in Puttaparthi of Anantapur district, a trust official said.

A day after the Sathya Sai Central Trust opened the locks of Yajur Mandir, trust member and Baba’s nephew R.J. Ratnakar Friday evening announced details of the cash and valuables found inside.

He told reporters at Puttaparthi that they found Rs 11.56 crore, 98 kg gold and 307 kg silver. Ratnakar said the cash would be deposited with State Bank of India (SBI).

This is nothing compared to the frauds carried out for over a thousand years by other institutionalized frauds.
