There were also a lot of negs that felt like wild, random guesses. Others have pointed out the attempts on "a country north of Bolivia". Another was the bizarre attempts on the "forgery" clue. Or "Who is Proteus" for a monstrous character in The Tempest.
The problem with some of the legal clues is that they're pretty vague. And the whole area of this kind of theft - embezzlement, false pretenses, forgery, etc. - they're pretty similar and the differences are sometimes pretty subtle, even for attorneys. Plus, sometimes the same crime is called different things in different states.
I'll be curious to go back and look at the wording because I have to admit that "forgery" didn't pop into my mind but "kiting" did. It looks like kiting is a little more sophisticated, but again, I wish the writers would stick to legal questions that are a little less ambiguous.
