Barry Minkow The Con That Continues and Con-Tinues

Season 1 | Episode 236
56m | Nov 6, 2023

Barry Minkow, the former con artist turned pastor and fraud expositor, saw success in the carpet cleaning business but later turned to fraud, including insurance fraud and a Ponzi scheme, landing him a 25-year prison sentence in 1987. 

After finding religion in prison, he emerged as a reformed figure, but a decade later, he returned to his fraudulent ways, manipulating stocks and extortion, resulting in more charges and a further five-year prison sentence in 2011. Despite this, he continues to run a fraud exposure platform, maintaining a social media presence under the name "Fraud Minute."
