How John Boseak went from homeless to a multi-million dollar cyber credit card scammer.


John Boseak has been called many things including, “The Kingpin of Credit Card Fraud”, Miami’s “Dark Lord of Credit Card Scams”, and the “King of Carding.” In this episode, John Boseak explains how he committed fraud, dark web credit card scamming 101, and why fake credit card scams are “chump change”.

Thanks to Matthew Cox, I found John Boseak on the Koncrete podcast. Matt Cox also wrote BENT: How a Homeless Teen–Turned Credit Card Counterfeiter–Made Millions in the Cyber Underworld and Walked Away, a book about John J. Boseak that you can find here: https://insidetruecrime.com/bent-cyber-scammer-takes-secret-service-for-millions/

Regardless of how you feel about John, it’s an undeniably interesting true crime story. John is a charismatic dude who has cleaned up his life as a professional tattoo artist with a major documentary in the works. Once again, sorry about the audio, John was traveling today so we couldn’t meet my quality standard. I apologize if it bothered you!

Today I interview Spencer Cornelia, best known for his popular YouTube series “Authentic or Charlatan.”


Spencer Cornelia believes that the business of selling success is broken. Spencer Cornelia created “Authentic or Charlatan” to critique the rise of “fake gurus” and share the dark truth about the toxic world of self-help.

Authentic or Charlatan exposes self-help gurus like Dan Lok, Tai Lopez, Dan Pena, and Grant Cardone. The big question remains: are these self-help success gurus a scam or not?

I found Spencer on a similar channel called “Coffeezilla” where the guys were discussing if self-improvement can "ruin" your life, if you can really get rich quick, and if success is luck or hard work? We covered all the above in this episode plus something much closer to home, his popular video called “Why Your Favorite Musicians Are Broke." Enjoy the episode!

Reeves Wiedeman explains how WeWork founder Adam Neumann aka the "billion dollar loser" lost the company $39 Billion in one year.


WeWork has been called the "$47 billion disaster” founded by Adam Neumann. Reeves Wiedeman, the author of Billion Dollar Loser: The Epic Rise and Fall of WeWork (Adam Neumann) explains what happened to WeWork in 2021.


On one hand, this episode is about the catastrophic story of WeWork and Adam Neumann but perhaps more importantly it’s about Silicon Valley, what Jack Tran calls “History’s Greatest Ponzi Scheme."


This conversation started with Adam Neumann but quickly lead to Elizabeth Holmes, Bad Blood, Theranos, and other Silicon Valley start-up disasters. Oh, and we can’t forget about Billy McFarland, the man responsible for the start-up fraud known as “Fyre Festival."


Welcome to the story of WeWork, Adam Neumann, and the chaotic culture of Silicon Valley’s so-called “unicorn” funding.


Reeves Wiedeman is a Contributing Editor at New York magazine. He has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Harper's, Men’s Journal, and other major publications. Billion Dollar Loser, about the rise and fall of WeWork, is his first book.
