Pianist Pays Swindlers $20 Million For Protection Against Fake Threats
(I'm just going to show you the first of the story. It speaks for itself)
New York, NY, United States (AHN) -- A New York couple has been arrested and charged with fraud after brainwashing a wealthy pianist into paying them as much as $20 million for protection against fictitious threats.

Vickram Bedi, 36, and Helga Invarsdottir, 39, met Roger Davidson, 58, in 2004 when the latter went to their computer service shop and asked them to get rid of a virus in his laptop. Upon learning that Davidson was a heir to a $36 billion oil service firm, the couple told him that the computer virus in his computer was part of a plot by foreigners and the Catholic organization Opus Dei to assassinate him.

Davidson agreed to pay Bedi and Invarsdottir $160,000 per month to protect him. The swindling lasted six years with the pianist even appointing the couple as board trustees to his music charity, the Society for Universal Sacred Music.

'til later. Watch who you get to work on your computer if you are an oil fortune heir!
