"The ring was brought down by the district attorney's office" That would be the State of CA DA? Is this a San Diego crime organization?

I see some female names included in the accused. This is among the types of crimes that often involve females (non-violent, mostly involving paperwork). How can women earn the equality they seek if they can't do the hard crimes that men do? ;^)

swell: Men commit more than 90 percent of violent crimes. My guess -- and this IS just a guess -- is that men commit more than 90 percent of white collar crimes, too. However, over more than 50 years, I have written many columns about women involved in swindles. Best, Don Bauder

Women don't get caught as often as men, but how much crime they do is a matter for speculation, because successful criminals deceive rather than bludgeon. Crime often goes undetected. The vast majority of stupid crime is perpetrated by men, but that's likely because of men's stupidity, and lack of deception. Women are just better at some things.

Psycholizard: Another factor is the ceiling women come up against. They seldom get to high levels of the organizations run by scamsters. So when law enforcement busts the scam, not that many women are in sight. Best, Don Bauder
