Fifth Guilty Plea in Berkeley Nutraceuticals Case

Like her former colleagues, Kinmon admitted taking part in the unauthorized billing of credit cards of customers who were trying the company's sexual aids and other herbal supplements on a 30-day, free-trial basis. Papers filed by the government Tuesday said the scheme cost at least 250 victims between $100 million and $200 million.

Court papers say Kinmon received a large salary, numerous perks and bonuses, including the payment of $25,000 to buy a 2002 Jaguar X-type 3.0. The government wants the car.

Wait a minute... $100 million / 250 victims = $400,000 per person?

Wow... I'd say that's a pretty expensive hard on!! :)

I made the same observation as well. I assumed it was a misprint. If not, you said it perfectly.
