Evil Geniuses are so rare that it’s still surprising when one actually surfaces. In this case, the plot is so deviously brilliant I can’t do anything but heartily applaud it. I’ll let The Guardian take over from here:

The women were led to believe they were being filmed for a Big Brother-type television programme, according to the Dogan news agency and other news reports. Instead, their naked images were sold on the internet by their captors.

They were made to sign a contract which stipulated that they could have no contact with their families or the outside world, and would have to pay a fine of 50,000 Turkish lira (£20,000) if they left the show in the first two months, the agency reported.

She said the women were not abused or harassed sexually, but that they were told to fight each other, to wear bikinis and to dance by the villa’s pool.

    I completely disagree…this wasn't a particularly ingenious scheme, and it certainly doesn't deserve hearty applause. It was exploitative and cruel (and certainly evil), but ultimately it was just a garden-variety con job.

    Person or group A tells person or group B something that B wants to believe but which turns out to be false in a way that is non-obvious to B. A uses this falsehood to exploit B for profit. By the time the falsehood is evident, A is nowhere to be found.

    Not only was it not a genius scheme, but it failed. A was discovered before the escape could be made.
