Crafty Investment Swindlers Who Prey Upon the Credulity
of the Laborer to Defraud Him of His
Hard Earned Savings.
BY ROBERT a ARMSTRONG,
Former Assistant Secretary f the Treasury,
The cleverness and boldness with
which the up-to-date Investment swin
dler plies his craft are almost incred
ible. Wherever you find a fraudulent
investment scheme you will find both
of these elements present in some de
gree but the comparative proportion
of one to iiiu other is generally deter
mined by the element of time of opera
tion. For example, if the projectors of a
scheme arc old hands at the game and
have established records of the wrong
sort, then the idea of quick results is
not only attractive but often impera
tive. There aTe many "old offenders"
in the profession of investment swin
dling who have been convicted and
have "done time" in jails and peni
tentiaries but have not yet learned to
prefer straight to crooked finance.
Men of this character realize that a
"quick get-away" is a cardinal essen
tial of success; they must complete
the transaction and get in the harvest
before there is time for the public to
wake up and do any investigating.
Consequently, boldness is the big ele
ment in operations of men of this
class. And, although they may be im
mensely clever, daring rather than
cunning will be the dominant char
acteristic of their scheme.
The length to which the bolder spir
its in this class will go almost sur-
passes credibility. Here is an example I
of the tricks to which they will resort
in order to create the impression of
having the backing of men or institu
tions of strength and character:
Through introduction by social,
friends the local representative of an
investment scheme was able to open a
checking account with a banking and
trust company in a big city a com
pany of so high a standing that it is
very widely known outside of financial
circles and among people of small
means. Its endorsement was' worth
"ready money" to any enterprise and
the fact was keenly appreciated by the
"fiscal agents" of the Brite & Fair
After the opening of his personal
checking account; the fiscal agent lost
bo time in cultivating the acquaint
ance of the trust omcer of the bank
ing institution, which did a very large
business in the discharge of trusts.
One day the depositor came to this of
ficer and explained that he had a very
simple little trust which he wished to
have executed. Finding it necessary
to leave the city for a few days he
wished to provide for the delivery of
a sealed package, containing "valuable
papers," to a man whose name and
personal description was given. The
person to call for the package would
leave a certified check, in the amount
of $1,000, which was to be placed to
the credit of the "fiscal agent" of the
Brite & Fair Bonanza company, whose
business connections were unknown
to the trust officers of the banking
and trust company.
Weeks later the trust officer was as
tonished to receive from an old per
sonal friend, who was knocking about
in the west, a circular of the Brite &
Fair Bonanza company, in which the
big trust company was designated as
"trustee" for the "B. & F." stocks.
As the friend who forwarded the cir
cular knew something of the wildcat
nature of the Brite & Fair enterprise,
his comments on the folly of the
bank's accepting such a "trust" had
an edge on them. When the matter
was investigated it was found that
the whole plot had been carefully con
cocted and worked up to; that the cir
culars had been printed and put in di
rected envelopes read- for mailing in
advance of the placing of the so-called
"trust," and that when the trust offi
cer of the solid financial institution
had given Ms receipt for the "sealed
package safd to contain valuable pa
pers," a telegram had been sent by
the "fiscal agent" to "mail out trustee
circulars." The man in this scheme
of course believed that, as the circu
lars were being mailed out into a ter
ritory about a thousand miles from
the city in which the banking and
trust company was located the trust
officer who had been imposed .upon
would never hear of the misuse of his
receipt for a "dummy"package which
actually contained certificates of the
mining company's stock.
Why did the men who worked this
scheme to steal the moral support of
the big trust company go to so great , ,
pains to get it; to make the transfer
of a sealed package containing its
bonds? Because fake investment op
erators have found it profitable to
take every precaution to give the color
of legality to their acts; they have
found it profitable to hire shrewd legal
pilots to tell them just how far they
may go in a given direction without
running upon the reefs of the United
States post office's "fraud order" or
upon the rocks of a "conspiracy"
prosecution. These pilots for the
fleets of the investment pirates make
a professional study of the art of
steering their craft just outside the
line of successful criminal prosecu
tion. Take it in the incident which I
have related: had these men been
prosecuted for falsely using the name
of the trust company or for obtaining
moneys by misrepresentation (the
claim that the trust company was act
ing as trustee on the Brite & Fair se
curities), an able lawyer could have
made out of the "trust" to transfer a
package of unknown contents, a very
plausible defense. Again, the mining
company was able to make valuable
use of the trust company's receipt for
the package by having facsimiles of
the receipt printed and distributed
among solicitors for the stock who
were canvassing persons not at all
familiar with legal documents and
who. under the statements and argu
ments or the agent, would see in the
receipt an acknowledgement that this
great trust company and its millions
were behind the securities of the Brite
& Fair Bonanza company.
So far as the write'r knows, there
has never been a fake investment con
cern exploited which has not tried to
steal moral support under the name
of some "guaranty," "trust," or "secur
ities" company. In most cases, per
haps, these companies are as thorough
fakes as the company which they are
supposed to guarantee, and are the
creatures and creations of the same
men. But so many instances of this
shallow deception have been shown
up in criminal prosecutions that a
little variation has been found desira
ble. Instead of owning a fake "guar
anty" concern, the exploiters of the
fake companies have recently come to
regardjt as a better practice to claim
connection with some genuine corn-pan-
doing a general trust business.
This brings us straight to the prac
tical point in the matter: Never go
Into an investment until you first find
out for yourself, by direct and first
hand investigation, what the "refer
ences" named in the literature or ad
vertising matter of the company have
to say about it. and also how much
the references themselves amount to.
Promoters of wildcat investment en
terprises have used hundreds of names
as references which they had not the
shadow of right to use calculating
that persons credulous enough to be
interested in the proposition would
also be credulous enough to say "these
references will speak well enough for
the enterprise, else their names would
not be given out for this purpose"
and to act without making any -inquiries
of them. Agajn. some man of
prominence and great faith may have
been, at the start, a believer in the
enterprise and willing to say, within
certain limitations, that he believed
the venture could be made a success if
conducted according to certain plans
and under given restrictions. This
does not signify that he will continue
to retain that confidence or that he
is willing to be understood as giving
the venture his unqualified endorse
ment or to say to the public which
respects his name and positl-wn: "Come
and share this enterprise with me;
put your money into it, for it's a
good thing." But you may be sure
that his name will always be used to
create this impression if there has
ever existed a shadow of warrant for
using it. under whatever restrictions.
Therefore, take nothing for granted
with regard to references or other
names which appear in the advertis
ing matter of a concern which applies
to you for the privilege of spending,
But let me place special emphasis
upon the crafty use which these com
panies make of the names and the ser
vices of reputable "trust" companies.
I use the word "services" because a
trust company may execute a "trust"
in connection with bonds, ocks

company consents to hold the stakes
between two parties but without the
slightest responsibility as to the value
of those stakes or what may be done
with them after the stipulations as to
the conditions precedent to delivery
have been fulfilled. Because a trust
company acts as the trustee of a cer
tain bond issue there is no warrant for
a prospective Investor to feel that the
resources of the trust company are
in any sense behind those bonds as a
guarantee of value. There are almost
as many different kinds of "trusts" cs
there are different transactions; the
trust company undertakes the respon
sibility of doing a certain definite and
particular thing and nothing more:
It may be to foreclose if a mortgage
fs not paid, or it may be to Issue so
many shares of a certain stock (a a
certain person wher. a stipulated nun
ber of shares of another issue are
But there are very few men even
fairly familiar with business routine
who do not form an impression that,
somehow, the big trust company is
behind the stocks for which it acts as
transfer agent or perform any other
act of trustship. It is almost impossi
ble to drive this idea out of the minds
of rasa who are not really familiar
with corporation matters from an in
side viewpoint They will insist upon
attaching to a limited service an un
limited moral 'and financial responsi
bility that does not exist
It Is. therefore, of the highest possi
ble importance if you find "yourself
tempted to go into an investment that
you learn from the trust company
mentioned in the literature of the ven
ture exactly what "trust" it has un
dertaken to perform. If it is a really
reliable and established trust com
pany with a genuine financial stand
ing it will make the limitations of its
trust Tery cie. tt jmi; it wui take
special pains to make you understand,
for example, that its only function
in the matter in question and la con
nection with tr.o company concerned,
is the purely technical one of seeing
that a certain issue of bonds is
mede "in form" when the technical
preliminaries have been complied
.with and that it does not give an
ounce of its prestige or moral support
.to the bonds themselves or stand le
gally bound for a penny of responsi
bility in connection with them. An
other word of caution: Whenever
you see the name of an educator, a
pastor or a popular politician or any
other leader having a hold on the sen
timent of a communty, used in connec
tion with an investment offering, look
into it carefully and take no step until
the person mentioned has been ques
tioned directly by you.
I know of an instance where the
poor people of a parish were victim
ized because the unscrupulous agent
had attached to his prospectuses and
circulars the name of a popular priest
of that region. These poor victims. In
stead of going to the "reference," sim
ply said: "If the father's in it, sure
it's all right" and they were relieved
of their savings before the father
learned of the use of his name which
was wholly without his knowledge.
The solicitors for this swindle had
played a bold game and banked on
their knowledge of human nature to
the effect that most persons will take
a "reference" for granted instead of
Rising it for the purpose of seeking in
formation. There are very few of tho
lists of men and business or financial
houses named as references in the lit
erature of scaly investment concerns,
which do not contain some unauthor
ized names names of some persons
who, if questioned, would have given

Will Construct Large Tunnel.
The minister of public works in
France and the consul general of
bridges and highways have recently
approved the expenditure of over $15,
000,000 for the construction of a tun
nel canal four and one-half miles
long, 70 feet wide and 43 feet above
the water level to the vaulted roof,
to connect the port of Marseilles more
directly with the Rhone river. The
great width of this tunnel will per
mit the passing of two barges, it will
be completely lighted by electricity,
and possess a small railroad running
along its side. This great engineer
ing feat is to be finished in seven or
eight years and will necessitate the
extraction of 2,859,333 cubic yards of
rock and earth.
Catchment for Rain Water.
On the eastern side of the rock of
Gibraltar there is a curious-looking
white patch which recently led an
American tourist to ask whether the
rock was being armor-plated. It is'
really a catchment for rain water to
increase the reserve water on the
rock. The catchment covers 10 acres.
It is made of galvanized corrugated
iron fixed to piles driven deep into the
sandy slopes above the village of
Catalan. The water collected at the I
foot of the catchment runs through
the rock into a tunnel 2,000 feet long
and is delivered into reservoirs on
the western side. The yield to each
inch of rainfall is 240,000 gallons.

For several weeks, little Ralph had.

was a friend of the family. "But much
to Ralph's sorrow, there came a day
recently when the pony was sold, and
the delightful horseback rides came
to a sudden end. The purchaser, as
Ralph found out by inquiry, was a
little girl of about his own mature
age of five. Ever since his acquaint
ance with the pony began, Ralph had
included him in his. bedtime prayer,
and "God 4bless the pony," was an
earnest nightly petition. The first
evening after the sale of the pony,
Ralph hesitated when he reached his
pet's place in the prayer. Then, after
a moment's thought, he continued:
"Please, God, bless the pony just
the same; but God, dont yon bless

. A party of tourists was being, shown
around Clndad Juarez, the little Mexi

from El Paso, Texas. "Every one was
delighted with its picturesqueness,
and in particular a maiden lady, who
went into raptures about each new
"It is all so quaint," she said. "These

dreadful-looking men wearing som

so different from our United States."
"That's so," assented a New York
man who had been listening. "For
instance, where in all the world could
yon find anything so antique, so full
of inherent beauty, so charged, as it
were, with the essence of pure joy, as
that sign over there." He pointed
toward a whitewashed mud house on
whose exterior was painted:
"BIGGEST BEER IN TOWN, 5c."

Then she froze the horrid man with
