Math Is Hard
Main Question or Discussion Point
I used to hear this guy on Coast to Coast in the middle of the night.
He calls himself “America’s Prophet,” a psychic, trained by Nepalese monks in the art of time travel, who can foretell the future of the stock market.
But to the authorities, Sean David Morton is simply a fraud — and a really, really bad psychic.
Magic Eight Ball? Now I see how people were fooled. The name inspires such confidence.Mr. Morton’s reach was broad. He solicited investors through a newsletter with 20,000 subscribers, run through his Delphi Investment Group; his Web site; and his frequent appearances on radio shows like “Coast to Coast,” a late-night syndicated program focused on the paranormal. He and his wife, Melissa, created three unregistered vehicles for their investors. One was called Magic Eight Ball Distribution.
