Robert Thor and Sharifah Hardie Interview

Play episode

Robert Thor had no idea what a strange journey his life would be. Born into a loving family in the heart of the Bronx, New York, then moving to the Gulf Coast of Florida, Robert led a happy and nearly charmed life. His deeply religious upbringing gave him the strength to weather any storm; that is until he and his wife were introduced to Lou Pearlman, the con man of all con men.

Lou is best known for the creation of the boy bands, The Backstreet Boys and NSYNC. What people didn’t know was that he created a Ponzi scheme that cost unwitting investors nearly half a billion dollars to fund his musical endeavors.

This book chronicles Robert’s idyllic family life and nearly rags to riches story, all of which came tumbling down when he unwittingly became embroiled in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in American History.

His story is one of intrigue, deception, pain, and loss but ultimately of triumph, redemption, and the power of love. All of this led him to his life’s mission, helping the less fortunate in places like Cuba and Nicaragua.
