Inspiration: Illusion, deception, mirage... or is it just plain carelessness?? A man chasing dreams of easy wealth is a man easily swindled...

Guys, please feel free to leave some feedback/comments... they are much appreciated!!! 
'Like Jesus did with those fish' - great line. Plently of swindling SOB's out there for sure.  
Good criticism and some funny lines and moments, but I think you could have explored a bit more. If you can watch "Rear View". 
Interesting idea! Happened to many people. Please check out my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
Good cinematography and editing... Seemed to be good acting as well as script, but the audio was way low, even when i adjusted, so i didn't really get the ending. But yes, there are those scammers out there and people fall for their tricks! lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
Audio could be better, but it was a well put together movie overall. I enjoyed the bit with the 'eyes' - it was shot well and built some tension up. You made a cool little movie. Good luck. 
Nice timing to make this film. Made me think of Bernie Madoff and Stanford Funds. But also about so many frauds and schemes we've heard and read over the years. Smart movie. Acting is nice. Please check my film "THE VISIT" 
Perfectly cast. It was a little quiet, but okay with headphones. Really enjoyable. If you get a chance please check out "No Pretences".
