Because people believed the bullshat stories the former CEO told about finding anything from platinum to green garnets......he should go to jail for spreading unfounded rumours!!!! I'm sure they made a truck load of cash running prices up and dumping or at the very least, made money off the poor buggers who financed them at the higher levels.....do you own DD, but if I were you, I'd turn and run!  Good luck to the ones that have stayed, but I lost my shirt and am running for the hills!!!!!!!!
