02/19/2015: AMERICAN GREED 100 (P) – THE DIRTIEST CON
After serving just over seven years in prison for turning his carpet cleaning company ZZZZ Best into a $100 million scam, Barry Minkow claims he's a changed man. He's found God and is now a pastor. Now this former fraudster is committed to becoming a fraud fighter. His 'It takes one to know one' approach has landed him a local radio show and a lucrative business investigating the same type of scams he was accused of. But is this reformer really reformed? Minkow's Fraud Discovery Institute takes on publically traded companies by spreading fraud allegations through his website and the media. Is he looking for justice or a big payday from the companies he accuses? When one company takes a half a billion dollar stock hit after a Minkow 'Investigation,' it fights back and exposes a massive extortion plot.
