    Default Scorpion

    Looked for a conspiracy theory thread to post this in but none really fitted the bill. Also considered it amusing as to the power of the media:-

    A few weeks ago, we wrote about "Walter O'Brien," the guy who is supposed to be the basis of the CBS TV show Scorpion. The problem we had was that O'Brien made a ton of absolutely fantastical claims and, after doing a little fact checking, none of them seemed to check out. At all. Since a few people brought this up, let me make it clear: I have no issue with exaggerating on a TV show for the sake of good entertainment. I don't even mind bogus claims like "based on a true story" because, hey, Fargo was pretty awesome. If that's all that was going on, it wouldn't be a big deal and everyone could get on with their lives.

    Walter O'Brien (hacker name: "Scorpion") was diagnosed as a child prodigy with an IQ of 197 and at 13 years old started his company ScorpionComputerServices.com. Scorpion has mitigated risk for 7 years on $1.9 trillion of investments and has invented and applied Artificial Intelligence engines to protect United States war fighters in Afghanistan. Scorpion is now a think tank for hire that provides intelligence on demand as a concierge service for funded challenges through ConciergeUp.com. Since 1988, Scorpion's team of world class experts partner with clients on a global basis, across industries, to add real measurable value in mission-critical initiatives from planning, to execution, to running the business. Scorpion's senior management has a collective knowledge of more than 413 technologies, 210 years in IT, and 1,360 projects. Scorpion himself has created over 177 unique technology inventions including ScenGen and WinLocX and is one of the world's leading experts in the application of computer science and artificial intelligence to solve complex industry challenges.

    and finally ...


    So everything is not as it seems?

    I believe effort to be a finite resource. Something to be used only when there are no other options available.

    Tough economic times are, unfortunately, boom times for scammers, as people desperate for money and jobs let down their guards and are more likely to pursue questionable financial opportunities that caution might ordinarily warn them away from. And as folks become more inured to monetary woes, their charitable inclinations are more easily exploited by scammers pretending to be persons in need of sympathetic helping hands. Listed below are several pervasive forms of scams that have proven particularly alluring to potential victims when times are tough.

    Sorta like this guy:-

    HE was the self-proclaimed Teen Wolf of Wall Street who claimed to have made tens of millions of dollars by trading stocks on his school lunch break.
    But, in a shocking twist, Mohammed Islam now says he and his friend made the whole thing up after they were swept up in a media frenzy.
    Islam’s hoax was so elaborate and well-crafted, he managed to fool New York magazine, which reported that the 17-year-old student from Stuyvesant High in Queens was worth a rumoured $US72 million.
    The too-good-to-be-true story of the whiz kid trader was quickly followed up by other media outlets.
    Islam and his “colleague” Damir Tulemaganbetov were booked to appear on the CNBNC TV show Half-Time Report before suddenly pulling the pin after they went into a state of panic upon realising they had taken it too far.
