USA Today / AP stated NC Town Poorer after Zeek Rewards Ponzi

According to USA Today report, authorities have received word that Zeek Rewards was a scam back in November 2011. Attorney General of North Carolina passed the buck to other agencies, and none took any action. It took another 9 months (and hundreds of thousands more victims and millions of dollars fed into the Ponzi) before it was finally shut down.

Even today, Paul Burks blames the victims for losing their money. According to the story:

"I never told anyone to invest more money than they could afford," Burks snapped. "I didn't tell them to do that. Never."
He said if they lost money, "it's their fault. Not mine. Don't blame me."

How can people NOT blame the head of the largest Ponzi scheme in the US (in terms of victims, at over a million) for the Ponzi?

That's like blaming rape victim for "acting slutty", or mugging victim for "being weak", or shooting victim for "begging to be shot".

That is just bogus, and bull****.
