Its fraud and they will go to prison.
So I just think they are trying to milk things such as appearance money which can be rather high amounts to go on tv shows and new broadcasts.
And also book and movie deals which would be marked as fiction in the first place so no fraud done.
Not to mention selling photo's and Bigfoot memorabilia and there own websites traffic getting increased
If they accept money from an investor and its fake they will go to jail.
Its like selling someone land proposed to contain 100 million barrels of oil and then there being 0 oil.
They made all this up to get rich.
Look at there eyes light up when asked about the money.
"Are you going to try and make as much money out of this as possible?" asks the interviewer, "ABSOLUTELY!" with wide open gleeful eyes replies the
Although you make a good point that some kind of legal action may be taken, I don't agree. Look at all the other people who have profited off of
similar stories regarding UFO's, Aliens, ghosts, psychics, etc..etc.. This is a huge money-making industry that people buy-into because it's
interesting. People WANT to believe and see proof of UFO's. People WANT to believe and see proof bigfoot is real. People have been profiting BIG
off of public interest in this stuff for decades.
Fraud depends on whether or not you can prove it is fraud. You can't exactly prove something is fradulent if it involves a phenomenon that can't
definitively be proven anyway. Even if they end up saying "sorry we lost our bigfoot body", there isn't any way to definitively know whether or
not this is fraud because you don't exactly have anything to go off of except witness testimony and a few horribly taken photographs.. And even then
these guys are going to make loads of cash.. So in a way it wouldn't matter..
Are these people actually this greedy though? I mean, I've seen some Bull#*%$ stories over the last few months, but this takes the cake. I'd be
more inclined to believe them if they had any kind of credibility to back up their story. But all they have done is stir the pot of public interest
and media coverage in order to maximize whatever profits they will make from future book and movie deals.. Not to mention the sale of this "corpse"
if someone ends up buying it. I wonder if the buyer would have to pay for the stupid freezer too..
The press conference was a private media function that THEY organised that involved people from the media that THEY invited...Yet they said they
weren't ready to release the body to the public while giving no explanation as to why.. Now, they had ALL this public spotlight. This was the
perfect time to unveil their discovery, and it would have been to their credit if their stories were proven true. But all they did was give
conflicting personal accounts and really nothing else.
And what about the problem with the whole freezer idea? if you have a freezer... + full of water, +untold quantities of ice from 7-11, + a 600 pound
furry creature from the depths of the forest, HOW IS ANY FREEZER NOT GOING TO BREAK?
Also, if you look at the bigfoot suit which has been linked here in the thread multiple times, all the measurements are nearly EXACTLY THE SAME as the
creature they say they discovered. Not to mention the fact that the nose of the creature in the infamous "freezer photo" is an EXACT match to that
of the stupid bigfoot suit/dummy whatever it is (as was aptly pointed out by a previous poster a few dozen pages ago).
