I Got Scammed By A Silicon Valley Startup
Penny Kim

My first “Uh…” moment was the founder revealed himself to be an ex-investment banker. Sounds like someone with a God complex who thinks having money entitled him to play God over several dozen people’s lives. But then, “investment banker” is really playing God with someone ELSE’s money, isn’t it? You can throw lots of labels at it… “competency transfer” “Dunning-Kruger”… doesn’t matter. Effect is the same.

And the saddest parts would be those poor H1B kids from China. They had to go back with no money, no job, and no experience to show for it.
