    Essentially Enron created ways to use the SPE's that had never been used before. The original purpose was sound and creative but Fastow and Kopper got involved in high-risk to hedge investments. Enron held put options and a note receivable while SPE h eld the stock. The true and economic losses were never reflected in the income statement. The appreciation of the stock offset the losses only from an accounting standpoint. The CFO and some Enron employees received huge returns on their investments. As the debt was shielded, it took time for this "house of cards" to fall. Yes, it's deceit and greed. Watch how the laws will cease being to lax after this.
