I know I shouldn’t be laughing…..

But it’s hard not to. Looks to me that everyone got just what they deserve. Any old retired person with almost a million dollars to invest should be happy and just enjoy a nice late life with that money. If they want to invest it and do so by putting it all in one basket they deserve to lose it all. And any ‘financial adviser’(what kind of a frigging job is THAT anyway?), who most likely took at least 10% off the top, who loses all of an investment he was hired to make deserves to have his ass kicked. Hell for $400 grand I’d let 5 old guys beat on me for a couple of days too! And last of course the Furious Five deserve some time in prison to think about why kidnapping and torture are illegal(unless of course you’re a member of the bush maladministration).

“A FINANCIAL adviser has barely escaped with his life after being beaten and held hostage for four days … by a gang of old-age pensioners.

American James Amburn was beaten until his ribs broke, burnt with cigarettes and hit with a Zimmer frame by the gang of five pensioners furious that he’d lost their £2 million ($4.1 million) savings.

Living in Germany, Mr Amburn was ambushed as he left a café and driven in the boot of an Audi to a house, where he was dumped in a cellar.”

    I don't understand why so many people don't realize that to invest in something is to gamble. Most people will nod their head in agreement when you say "Don't gamble with anything you can't afford to lose", but for some reason they fail to make the connection when it comes to investing.

    I don't get it.

    I think it's probably just old fashioned greed CC.

    Brilliant.

    That went under my radar this week.

    Bernie was a con artist, this douche was a con artist, and they wanted to believe that they really COULD get ahead with the con artist's scam. Can't blame the working-class guys for wanting to make some allegedly "easy money."

    Keeping in mind that I got bullshitted into believing that a girl was "dying of a brain tumor" and that I got all of y'all and half the fucking world to donate money to "save her life," and now none of us knows where that money WENT or if it's even in the fucking bank. All that we know is that Susan Hammer has a freshly-remodeled house and that Leola Kinchen never went to any of the THREE FUCKING HOSPITALS that offered her FREE FUCKING SURGERY.

    So I'm the one who looks like a fucking moron. I can SO fucking understand how those old guys got that fucking pissed.

    To get back to the Furious Five: some people might not understand how guys who'd worked all of their lives to scrimp and save that nest-egg would fall for this shit, but it's not unfathomable. Otherwise BRILLIANT people have been known to do world-class-STOOPID shit; see also: Bill Clinton, James Carville, Roseanne, and Al Gore in letting them saddle him with LIEberman.

    They were old, they trusted the wrong person, they wanted to believe that it was possible, just like the Madoff pigeons, to truly get ahead with the "help" of this scumbag. When you get to your seventies or eighties, and think that you've finally got a shot at something REALLY big, after a lifetime of doldrums, you might wanna go for it, too. Beats the hell outta playing the lotto. Not saying that it'll get you anywhere, but I can understand how they could've gotten involved with that douche. We've all been suckered, at least once, by some smooth-talking, pathological motherfucker.
