Because all that un-sexy stuff like stages and production equipment isn't *people* that have money or some kind of influence, the mass media pays no attention.

Who were the vendors?  Perhaps we can get some info from them and come up with some do's and dont's of dealing with ass-wipes like McFarland.

Not much else to say other than "don't".

I hope all involved are made whole somehow.

The article quoted Luca Sabatini, co-owner of Unreal-Systems in Florida.
I found unreal-systems.com and they also have a facebook page, I didn't see any updates about this.

The problem is that that folks with some name recognition and flash cash can dazzle a small operator into making unwise decision in pursuit of the work.

Any of the big guys are going to require proper documentation of ability to pay, deposits paid on time etc.  They are not in the business of providing credit.  Nor should anyone be. 

If something is too good to be true it usually is.  I have heard countless pitches over the years from people wanting to pay for services based on some type of future performance.  I always pass.

So in the end he spends 3 years in prison/vacation and he has tucked away 26 millions or so somewhere.

So, what happened with that Ja Rule guy?

The judge ordered forfeiture of about $26m....  The brief article I read about McFarland's sentencing didn't address JaRule except to indicate he also lost money to McFarland as an investor.
