Are Women Really That Dumb?

Or that gullible? Here’s the story of Hillard Jay Quint and his scams that involved at least ten women in nine states. I understand that he might have been an ultra-smooth talker and dressed and played the part quite well, but what makes someone open up their wallet to a guy like this? He even told one women “tales of competing with Arabian sheiks to buy year-old thoroughbreds and of his desire to buy a horse farm with her”. Arabian sheiks? This woman moved in with him and gave him $150,000!

The good news is that he’s off the street for now and looks like he won’t be back anytime soon. Ladies really, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Didn’t your parents ever tell you that?

    It’s not women who are dumb. If Angelina Jolie’s evil twin made puppydog eyes and told me she’s being chased by aliens wearing Fonzie’s skin like a suit and she needs me to drive her to Memphis so that the good aliens wearing dead Elvis’ corpse could fight off the Spongegiblets of Xotrl, and oh, shit, her bra’s come loose, can I give her a hand…

    …glad that hasn’t happened again in a while.

    Honestly Bill you have no idea. These women were not gullible. They were wounded fish, attacked by the biggest, fastest, Great White Shark known to man. One Hillard Jay Quint. I have known him for 15 years. He scamed some of the most street smart people I know and I know a lot. These women were sitting ducks for him. He was that good. He needs to be in a Psycho Ward

    I just don’t understand some of these ladies that handed over money to this guy. I mean, who does that? If I were going to make any type of invesment, I’d be looking for some other financial institution to be involved and even check everything out on my own too. I wouldn’t be giving anyone money that I’ve only known for a few months either.

    “Are women really that dumb?” Short answer: No. Long answer: No need to tar all women with the brush being used on the 10+ women in the story. People, as individuals, are stupid, not their entire sex.

    The answer to “Are the women in this story really that dumb?” may be yes, however, depending on their individual stories.

    Not really tarring all women, just needed a good headline. Most women I know are very smart and would never fall for this type of guy, but there are a couple….
