George Kordahi and Credit FInancier Invest: a repeat of the Wahid Jalal experience?

Long, long time ago Tele Liban had a major hit on its hands, the program "Hakamat Al Makmaka" (the tribunal had judged). The program ran for 5 years straight making Wahid Jalal a major smash hit in Lebanon since he was the lead "lawyer" of the program. Jalal once had a major job opportunity, a leading law firm in Lebanon wanted to recruit him. His reply was "I am an actor, I know nothing about law!" to which the owner of the firm said "who said anything about law, all you have to do is just sit there!". Which brings us to Credit Financier Invest and George Kordahi.
CFI (Credit Financier Invest) is a registered Forex (Foreign Exchange) company. They recruited major pan-Arab media personality George Kordahi to represent them. Mind you Kordahi is charistmatic, easy of the eye, mature, trusted which makes him a very good fit. But his only "financial" credits is that he presented the "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" program in the Arab world, which is akin to saying "all you have to do is just sit there!". Truth be told Kordahi does more than sitting, he strolls on yachts in Dubai in their ads, does the whole the she bang of looking at his computer in a Cadillac Escalade, and acts convincingly.
Still, I cannot but think that his only link to money is the "Millionaire" program....
