Robert Vesco

So, has Robert Vesco actually died or is this simply the latest in a long line of scams?

He started out in the world of offshore investment scams: he parachuted in to "save" the creditors of Investors Overseas Services and then looted the Treasury.

Since then he's been pretty much on the run, hiding out in Cuba for many years. Where he was actually jailed for ripping off the Castro family in a medical drug scam.

He's certainly reported as being dead now from lung cancer...there's just that thought that maybe it's yet another trick.
