on wallstreet forced everyone to keep refinancing their homes to buy big flat plasma TVs, to pay off credit card bills, and to buy new fishing boats. Those bankers created a whole class of real estate investors, a.k.a. house flippers. Those crooked bankers promoted sub-prime loans even though those loans were being pimped by Fannie, Freddie, and Frank.

The victims weren't "duped", they just didn't know what was going on. Am I missing something?? The definition of the word duped is tricked, swindled, deceived and/or misled. These poor souls were definitely "duped". Let's call it like it is!
