Actually I lie. I don’t “have a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it an call it a weasel!” If i did i could translate that into “I have a plan so devious you could call it a scam”! And I hate scams. Scams can be described in one word – THEFT. But done with slimy words of hope and a call to greed to over-ride the victims good sense of honesty.
Every day I get at least two scam offers – and some days as many as 5! Many years ago I wrote a small book against scams and spread it abroad. One day i received a letter from a lady (a total stranger to me) in a town about 200 miles away, asking me for advice on a scam that was going around at the time called “jacks”. I took the time to write her a letter in which I advised her that it was a scam and the reasons why it was a scam and carrying the advice to avoid it like the plague. I heard nothing back from her until about 4 months later when i received another letter asking for help as she’s paid $900 for one of these jacks and then had sold another three to other people and spent the money. Then the Commerce Commission had declared it to be illegal and told her she had to pay her victims the money back – but she a]had spent the money!
What could i do for her? Not much really. I had advised her not to touch them but temptation had over-ridden her sensibilities and, after having nearly a grand stolen off her, she had become a thief herself by perpetuating the scam and selling to other people. I’m sure she didn’t see herself as a thief but she soldit three to other people and ripped them off. And that is theft. People who perform the act of theft on others are called thieves. I am sure that basically she was honest, but the call of “easy money” was too much for her and it blinded her to her own foolish actions in perpetuating the thefts.
There is no such thing as “EASY MONEY” and anyone who tells you that there is is a liar. Liar. liar, LIAR! However there is such a thing as good husbandry of money – but this takes effort, and some people want an “easy path” to “easy Money.” Actually looking at that phrase I ‘ve just written just add S and L to the beginning of both easys and you have the reality of easy money being “a sleazy path to to sleazy money”
But what about good husbandry of money (and our personal assets)? Ah, now that is a whole different thing! Good husbandry is basically
