A man was in desperate need of quick, easy money. He gambled up a big debt. He refused to sell his house to be responsible for his action. He looked around his home and decided to play psychological tricks to scam his neighbors. His intention was to threaten, to get protection money. “Pay up, or face my wrath.” he thought the old and weak would plunge into stress and despair. He persisted in his personal vendetta to threaten and swindle.
Nobody fell for his ruse because money was very difficult to earn.
