I mentioned to a friend the other day that I posted a lot on a site called goldmansachs666.com. He said "What's wrong with Goldman Sachs?" and for about 8 seconds I was ...*speechless*. Really, where do you start?! I guess I could of said-
"They're the devil"
"They're a foul group of narcissistic scoundrels who have raped the present and future economies of the world, rigged the markets by exploiting what-amounts-to-software-glitches to extract as much cash as possible from a stock market corrupted by those same people without ever building or manufacturing or creating anything of real value to society, jammed it's money-sucking blood funnel into not only the markets but into Congress, the Senate, the Presidency, the Justice Department, newspapers, every talking head on teevee and it's mechanical robo-claw/feeding tube into the Treasury and Federal Reserve as well, thereby perverting democracy and destroying the lives and bank accounts of millions of Americans and trillions of dollars of fictional wealth by their irresponsible leveraging of puffed-up financial voodoo instruments ,leeching off the government teat in what can only be described as Ayn Rand's wet dream of a free market company gone berserk yet powerful enough to corrupt the system in it's favor to bleed every living thing in sight dry?"
I managed to stammered out-
"They done a bad thing"
Looking back on it, that seems to sum it up well.

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage". In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain
