Labyrinth Watch

Imagine buying an extremely expensive watch as just a showpiece, rather than a functional timepiece. Introducing the "Playground Labyrinth" by Hautlence. Priced at $12K, this watch is basically an 18K gold maze with an extra-hard sapphire crystal "crown" to keep the platinum ball in place. To win the game, simply navigate the ball into one of the two tiny holes at which point the crown can be used to activate a small "mechanical lift" to reset the board. "Labyrinth is an old game that we have decided to bring back in a watch. What we are presenting here is a new vision of time and this new vision of time obviously doesn't show traditionally the time. We want people to disconnect and go [to] this dimension of time where you decide what you want to do," said Hautlence co-founder Sandro Reginelli.

Prayer Online

Seattle "businessman" Benjamin Rogovy made millions of dollars by offering online prayers between 2011-2015. He led people to believe that ministers and religious leaders would pray for them if they paid between $9 and $35 for the service via several websites. This was convincing enough for hundreds of thousands of people to participate in the scam, netting approximately $7.8-million in the process. However, all was not as it seems, since Rogovy posed as Pastor John Carlson, complete with a LinkedIn profile. Testimonials included being able to avoid home foreclosures, wining lottery jackpots, and even being cured of terminal illnesses. Continue reading for a video news report and more information.
