English Text

What: All about getting money the wrong way

Who: Have you been robbed or cheated?

Where: Anywhere there are thieves

When: You're in a discussion about crooks

Why: It can happen to anyone, so be careful

At work the next day, John is anxious to tell a co-worker about the latest episode of 'Cops'. This one was all about robbery and fraud. There are some pretty dishonest people out there!

John: How's the coffee, Dan?

Dan: Not so bad, this morning.

John: Guess I'll take a chance. So, how's the Dryden project going?

Dan: Real well. We should be finished in a couple of weeks.

John: Good stuff. Say, did you watch 'Cops' last night?

Dan: No, I was watching the football game.

John: It was a very interesting episode, all about robbery and fraud. One couple's house was really cleaned out, and in another case, muggers took every last dime from an old lady.

Dan: What's the world coming to, I wonder.

John: They also showed a number of examples of fraud. On the East coast, one group defrauded hundreds of people. The scam they were running left many people penniless. And they showed how governments wage a constant war against counterfeiting. Not to mention how a computer expert defrauded a bank of $200,000.

Dan: Some people will go to any extreme to get more money. You really dig that program, don't you?

John: Wouldn't miss it for the world. Well, see you later, Dan. I have to go.
