Why Philadelphia Phillies should be terrified of prospective New York Mets owner Steve Cohen
"News, it's the news from a couple days ago. That it is. Ah, just ah, matter of crossing some T s and dotting some. I's For major billionaire Steve Cohen to buy the New York Mets. Why is this a problem? All right, let's go, Micro. Then we'll go macro. A micro problem. Is that Jay Serial Muto is a free agent in 30 games, plus the plaice. And the New York Mets need a catcher and Steve Cohen, for those of you don't know who he is and what his deal is Big Box New York to the point that the second he takes over the Mets John he becomes the richest owner in major league baseball. Soon as he takes over. And he's going to take over the Mets. He won the bidding war against Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez and Josh Harris and some others. He's the one who's going to win this which means when Jadiriyah Muto and by the way, really mute tone is agent probably have been aware ofthe. I'm sure his agent part of the reason they haven't signed is a wait, Wait, wait, wait and went to no brainer. Steve Cohen might be taken over the mats. Hold on, Don't sign, and I know yesterday, McClintock talked about the Dave engage in conversation, and that's good. But you know the reality is the The five year $100 million deal right that summer. Free beer first speculating today. Well, maybe it'll be five on 120. He'll get his 23 year because we don't know that it won't be five years and 180 million Well, James, That's a little aggressive. You don't know what you're talking about. A guy here one in New York. I know I want to make yourself something. I agree with that. But I mean, let's not get carried away. 51 80 is is not gonna happen, we'll say but here's what I know. I just got a lot harder for the pills. And by the way, that's just on the real Muto front. In one example. Then there can actually division the macro is this is a division where obviously the Braves in the nationals, and even to an extent, the Marlins has some nice young players. Phillies have some clearly some veterans that are good. But the reality is the Mets, who have ever since the Bernie Madoff disaster for them about 15 years ago have been a joke. As far as being in New York spending money the way a New York team should get ready for that to change this decade. Yeah, that's the issue is that all of a sudden the Mets are gonna be cheap anymore. It's just got hard, man. I mean, the the New York Mets. They shouldn't be cheap, You know, just like the Philly should correct. I agree. So ah. Now, this guy, apparently pretty big ego guy. I'm sure he's going to want to win some some battles against the Yankees. As far as you know, who's got the upper hand in New York and who's controlling the airwaves, the television networks in the radio and conversation and all that stuff and J. T. Real Muto is is like the prize that Mets fans are clamoring for. So just just know as a Phillies fan as we all are. It just got harder. It just got harder for the filles.

"We're gonna get into trouble. And I'm just trying to make people aware of that. And get people thinking about ways that we can avoid the consequences of that. I'm gonna talk about three little episodes that were in the HBO film of your book wizard of lies starring Robert deniro and Michelle Pfeiffer, which I kind of enjoyed watching recently. That was great fun for me. Yeah. I noticed you've got to do scenes with Robert deniro that must've been a lot of fun. Yeah. You know? I thought I would just retire at the top after I finish that. My I make my film debut of opposite, Robert deniro, and you're just doesn't get any better than that. So anyway, there there are three episodes in in the book, and in in the movie that kind of caught my caught my eye, then they speak to a little bit of of why these things happen. Why I'm skeptical about regulatory responses the first episode, and they're not in chronological order. First up was when made off with sentence to a hundred and fifty years in prison with no hope of parole. The judge said something like I'm going to make an example of you. And I thought well, you can make an example of him all you want to. But the fact is there was Bernie Madoff somewhere before him, and they'll be another one after him, and you can't prevent that guy from coming into existence. Maybe you can stop him soon. But you can't really you can only make an example up to a certain point. The second episode. And this is one of the things I learned from your book that I did not know previously..

"And I can see from an evolutionary standpoint how that would have been really important when you're putting together to Neo the hunting team to go at up out after the woolly mammoth it really helps if they trust each other to to fairly share the the the kill. But the fact that we are default position is to trust one. Another specially people who look and sound a lot like ourselves that leaves us potentially vulnerable to the the sociopaths who will use that trust to rip us off it. It's always a risk. But you know, the the alternative is not don't trust anybody. That's what's so difficult. We can't just say you trust. No one or modern commerce comes to a halt and modern banking comes to a halt. And what a hideous society. That would be the live in anyway. So it's important that we figure out a way that we can sustain the trust. That's necessary. One of the ways that investors can do that is a is to simply ensure that the investment managers they use the investment advisers they use. Maintain their account with an independent third party custodian it's kinda complicated measure, but but an independent third party custodian is almost you. You know, fail insurance against upon these scheme is a good practice to just be sure as an individual you're doing that. And then from the regulatory standpoint, I frankly, think regulators need to be a lot tougher on banks as our first line of defense against Ponte's games because as you could see from wizard wide if Bernie Madoff hat and had a Bank account. He would not have been able to do what he did every Ponzi schemer has to have a Bank account and uses that Bank account in in pursuit of his crime. So Bank before the banking business could be an early warning wine of defense as you were saying earlier to stop these crimes instead of you to pick up the pieces after they've they've been exposed well bankers are in a position to do that. And you and I may not be so I would like to see. Much more made of the Bank regulatory process as a tool against Ponzi schemes. You know? You Braise an interesting point because at one point in the story at all these huge banks J P Morgan Chase HSBC CitiBank Florida's Merrill, Lynch. They were actually offering made off linked derivatives derivatives linked to Bernie Madoff, no phony performance. So I don't know. I don't know Diana, should I really trust these people..

Don't that goes back to that goes back to the early nineties? The system that we have put together still works where we help people. And we show them what it's gonna take to rebuild all of the losses that they were taken in their accounts back in the day. How hard it was for us. We're feeling phone calls left, right? All over the place working seven days a week. Working on portfolios million dollar portfolios. That were now portfolios that were eighty to one hundred thousand dollars people at two hundred fifty thousand dollar portfolios that were now down to fifteen twenty thousand dollars. Stupid. What are you dealing with those losers for they lost money that already money left? What are you doing with them? Wall Street for you. These people need help. Doing. These people have been wiped out. They need. They need some sort of system some sort of plan. Some sort of plan to get them selves back to where they were. And again, I've talked about it here on the program. Many people were so were so shells us. Oh, shellshocked Joan knocked down by this entire thing. They didn't listen. They wanted to believe that for some some some magical thing was going to happen and the crappy stocks crappy penny stocks if they had their portfolio, we're gonna make some sort of comeback or that they could trade their way back. They could trade their way back to where they were there one hundred thousand dollar portfolio. They're gonna make gonna turn it back to a million dollars. Yeah. That can be done. But it's gonna take a long time. It has since people doing the same thing they were doing before and expecting a different result. So yeah, we we've got some experience in this. We've been doing this for a very long time. Wasn't too long ago. I wanna give you an example of how it works because nobody ever talked about this J P Morgan Chase Bank. They finalize the deal with them. The Manhattan US attorney they paid them. Two billion bucks who million dollars over the fact that J P Morgan knew what was going on with the Bernie Madoff scandal, and in fact, aided and abetted his crime. J P Morgan. Chase had been in business with made off for two decades. And they claim that they did not have the proper systems in place to detect the fraud. Which is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. What J P Morgan did know is that they were making a hell of a lot of money off made off. They could give a rat's ass how he was doing it. They didn't care. They were getting paid. Course, nobody from AP Morgan was prosecuted. And there's countless instances this. What I found interesting about this. And I wrote about was the fact that. United States government was collecting fines. Portion of the money for somebody was going towards the victims of the swindle. Portion of it. But of course, the government has to take its chunk as it always does. And the reality is that for the federal government to actually even receive a nickel. Swindle in of itself. As early as nineteen ninety two. The SEC ignored all red flags around Bernie Madoff. In fact, there was two accounts that were actually charged with marketing made off investments. With bogus promises of sky high returns. They went after those guys what? Do with made off that might the problem might be with made off himself. Talked about Harry Markopoulo compilation how he broke down. Adolf scam? And gave it to the SEC saying this guy is a fraud. Yup. Regulators went in and they did nothing. Nothing. Made off had powerful friends in government. Paid off made enough political donations keep any the meddling agent's office back. This is how it works. Okay. Talk about the call him a wolf on Wall Street. Jordan Belfort the wolf on Wall Street, if he was the wolf on Wall Street, what would you call these big investment firms today? Where will? Okay.

Finance live for hours of live market coverage. They're ready. Are you ten years ago? This country was reeling from the worst financial crisis in decades. And in the middle of it all came shocking news, Bernie Madoff a pillar of Wall Street was arrested for orchestrating a multibillion dollar Ponzi scheme. Then you spread fast and quickly engendered panic amongst investors who gathered at the offices of their alleged swindler, hundreds of people were told the money, they'd invested with males firm was probably gone. They included rich and famous people. But also, those of more modest means now, many of those investors have recovered most of the money they lost. But as NPR's Jim zarroli reports, they're still living with the consequences of made offs fraud to his investors, Bernie Madoff was a Wall Street genius. A man who racked up? Big returns year after year. No matter how the economy was doing but made off lived with a terrible secret. And in two thousand eight with the economy crashing he was forced to admit that his investments were a fiction in tapes published by New York magazine later made off talked about breaking the news to his family. Cry. I should. I just. I have to tell you as news of made offs Ponzi scheme broke, thousands of investors, including many charities learned. They didn't have the money. They thought they had they included Steve Heim off a writer and critic whose retirement fund was wiped out. I had an Email from a cousin of mine, and I read through the body of her Email see explain that. It was all done every penny before then Heim off had never heard of made off. But an investment fund used by him and his family had been feeding money to mate offs firm now that money had vanished. And at age sixty two Heim off was forced to refinance his condo and severely cut back on spending. I just stopped going to restaurants. I stopped by Clova. I stopped going to -cations I stopped going to movies. The toll his losses would take on hyme off was considerable with came very close to suicide. For at least a year, it's been very emotionally exhausting. There's an element of post traumatic stress syndrome in the year since then made off who's now eighty pleaded guilty and was sent to federal prison. So were six of the people who worked at the firm including made offs, brother. Peter one of made off sons hung himself in his New York apartment. Meanwhile, the court appointed a trustee to try to recover what he could from the wreckage of made offs finances that trustee Irving Picard he spoke to NPR's weekend edition on Sunday about how he worked a lot of hard work. Some good lawyers working with us and forensic accountants and investigators and we developed the case from the ground up. The fund has so far recovered about thirteen billion dollars partly by selling off made offs houses. Aunties fifty five foot. Yacht named bull. The money will go to. Mate off victims, surprisingly, many of them will get back most of the funds they invested with made off, but they're only receiving money. They actually put into the fund those great returns, they thought they were getting the money in those monthly statements made off sent out virtually all of that is gone, Michael davita estimates. He'll get back about sixty percent of what he put into mate offs fund. I retired in August of two thousand eighteen eight years later than I expected on less than a third of what I expected to retire on nor will investors get back much of the taxes. They paid over the years on those returns davita has become something of an investor advocate since then and teaches a college course on made off. He says a lot of people weren't very sympathetic to made off victims. There was a lot of of feelings back at that time that people who were invested with Nate off quote got with eight deserved that the returns were too good to be true. And therefore you took advantage of the system. And you know, what ha ha we got you. But davita says a lot of made off victims weren't sophisticated or rich. They were just average people like himself people who naively trusted made off with their retirement money and have paid a terrible price.

How Amazon became the world's biggest e-retailer
"Amazon is a really unique one of the most unique companies in your book because it it started out as the it wasn't the first they weren't the first people to sell things on the internet. But they were the first biggest and they're still the biggest so talk a little bit about the beginnings of Amazon. Yeah. Well, real quick though. I wanna point out like there's so many stories in this book of where the the one that wins is not the first one. It's like the that saying that leaders always get EROs in their back. You know, it wasn't a Facebook one. It wasn't my space. But the even before my space friendster even before. There were six degrees. The fact that to this day, the the number one e commerce company in the world by far I think last week I heard fifty nine cents of every dollar spent online is it goes to Amazon. It was was the first is actually we got to give them a lot of credit for that. Because again, like, you know, no, one swooped in and and eight Jeff Bezos is lunch. What? So how how did it get started? Jeff Bezos is he's working on Wall Street at a firm, the aquatic firm, that's actually competing tooth and nail with Bernie Madoff squad firm and the internet and web takeoff and he's assigned by his boss. The Shaw to David Shaw to to research this as a business opportunity, and there's fame the famous story of he sees how the internet's taking off and he realizes this is the biggest thing of his life. Is he going to regret leaving Wall Street behind leaving his Christmas bonus behind? No, he's going to go off and do this internet thing, and he and MacKenzie his wife drive across the country and he's typing the business plan on his laptop. And he they don't even know where they're going to go. Okay. There's a several different internet stories internet founding stories that I've had to debunk in this book. I spoke to shell caffeine who was employee number one at Amazon he said, well funny story. The Jeff had been out to San Francisco the month before to hire me and the other employee number two. I can't remember his name at the moment. Oh, and we knew we were going to Seattle because he had already done the research if they're going to do books the Ingram and Taylor are the big book warehouses, and they have warehouses in Oregon. He doesn't want to be in California because California has a sales tax or higher sales tax. And so see we knew we were going to Seattle. So okay. And same thing happened with EBay, the whole idea that EBay was they he wanted his fiancee that have a place to to trade Pez dispensers that these are these are stories that are made up because they're nice cute little PR stories. But I think the bottom line story of Amazon is that Jeff Bezos, I believe this saw the internet saw that it was the greatest thing that would ever happen is lifetime the greatest business opportunity. And I what I don't believe is that he knew. I think he wanted he intuited from day one that it could be an everything store. I think that commerce could have efficiencies of scale and efficiency in terms of being more convenient for for consumers. But he he started with books because I believe in. I if everything we've read about him, I believe his mind works this way, he was going to test the hypothesis now as soon as he proved that books that people would buy things because remember in ninety five I in fact, again back to my library research as late as nine hundred and ninety nine I'm reading articles after article after article in Forbes fortune and BusinessWeek people winner people ever going to trust buying doing commerce online putting their credit cards online.

"Day millionaires. Ordinary people built extraordinary wealth, and how you can too and Chris and our team and then even outside research firm put together airtight research process and detailed interviews with over ten thousand millionaires. Some of those were millionaires that we're familiar with us. Some of them were not familiar with us and oddly enough the data between the two of them matched up, but that the findings from that are in this new book it is on sale. Now, it comes out technically in January. So we'll ship it to you in January. If you buy now, and Chris the sales are going, very, brisk David really is. I mean, it's moving at a very very good pace. And I'm excited for people to read these stories it baffles me every time. People ask me, they say, how many people did your survey say over ten thousand, and they you know, it's hard for people to wrap their head around there. Because you don't hear about studies that have that many people, but that's our effort to be comprehensive and to know exactly what's going on. What are the state of millionare's nowadays? And we've got this information here in the book ten thousand millionaires, that's a lot. I mean, thousands statistically significant. That's right. When Tom Stanley did the book millionaire next door years ago at seven hundred fifty and that was fine from a statistical standpoint. Makes the findings reasonable inaccurate. I mean, if you've ever had a statistics class, you know, how to do that stuff? And certainly, Chris, and I have and, but that wasn't the point the point was we wanted it to be because we knew that some of you are and some of your friends are victims and think your stock, and you would not like the message that it is up to you to become a millionaire. And so we wanted to get enough data to where it's no longer a discussion about what the facts are. It's just your feelings are wrong. And that's a big deal. Oh, it really is. I mean because now you've got to look in the mirror. You gotta make a decision, you know, and seeing the stories of the people that have walked through stuff, Dave, the consistency. Over time. That's one of the things you talk about is being focused being consistent and having those actions that you just do do do. That's the things that we hear time and time again in these stories, it's not an accident. It was a decision and. And people can make that decision right now here today to begin to put themselves on that track. And you gotta make it over and over and over and over again. That's right. At one time. It's every morning you get up and make the decision I'm going to engage in the habits that millionaires engaging. I'm not going to engage in broke people habits. And that's what's outline, and no they didn't all inherit their money. If you're new to this program or you're new to this discussion. Inexcessive ninety percent of them are not millionaires because of an inheritance, and we can get real detailed and get down into the study. The exactly how many zero inheritance or they might have got ten thousand or they might have been more two million dollars. And then they inherited two hundred. So can't say they got no inheritance. But they were already millionaires before they got it or the amount. They got was so ludicrously small that it didn't impact the math. Well, Dave, I'm gonna tell you. There's all kinds in here. But I'm gonna tell you another one that jumped out at me. It's not about how much you make you see this. Is that surprise me? I shot we were going to see higher incomes at least spectrum, right? I didn't know what the average income throughout their working life would be. But I thought the spectrum would be up over two hundred k b two and it wasn't. No, it's it's a lot of them. Didn't even make six figures. That's exactly right and people will shake their heads. I'm telling you need to read the book because it's in there. Because it just naturally away. And you said a word Dave that that jumped out at me. And it's the victim like we've got to get over this mindset that that everything's against us. And we don't have an opportunity. That's not the case because some of the people in here really walk through some tough life situations, but came out of a really tough, really. But they decided as you said kept it consistently going. So America, the American dream is alive. And well, you just have to make a decision. That's true. That's a declarative statement is very accurate. So the book is every day millionaires. How ordinary people built extraordinary wealth and how you can do. It's a great message because it's the dream that you can financially be sombody is still alive. Is that the answer to all your problems? No, no, no. If you're if you're a jerk, and you get money, you're just a rich jerk. I mean, it's not the answer to your problems. But this idea that you're economically. Stuck is just not accurate. The book is twenty dollars. It comes out in January. We'll ship it to you. Then if you wanna pre-order it we're going to bribe you to do that we're going to give you about fifty dollars worth of free bonus items, including in January, we will ship you. The everyday millionaires audio book read by Chris HOGAN himself with that voice. The voice the trusted voice in America. And everyday millionaires e book and a video lesson from Chris called how to retire inspired. We'll send you immediately and a video lesson from me called. It's okay to be wealthy permission to win in a culture. It's it's a weird thing. We're taught to. Impart parts of taught fewer and fewer of these days. It's disturbing. But when I was growing up, you were taught to work hard beyond just help people serve, and you would be successful, and you could build wealth, and you could grow a life. Then when you do all of those things, and you're wealthy. Then you have people throwing stones at you and say, oh, you've done something wrong. You must be a crook. You must be a snake oil salesman. You must be this or that. And. So it's this paradox of you're supposed to be wealthy, but you're not really supposed to be. Well, that's right. And so that's why we did this lesson. It is okay. It is. Okay. And the other thing we found with most of these millionaires. They're not crooks know, they weren't shysters. They didn't run some Bernie Madoff scam. You know, they didn't run some thing that got him put in jail, or you know, that that's not who. I mean, those are such those those stories they make the news because they're so rare. Most of these people were just engineers. I just accountants the one. Occupation that threw us off teacher in the top five. Yes. The top five at the most found in the study occupations number in the in the top five of teacher. I love that. Oh, it it blew me away. We all know they're underpaid for the job that they do. But despite what they're paid. Again. It doesn't matter about your income. It's your plan for your money that teachers landed in the top five blew me away. But then again, medical doctors did not did not make the top five. But then again, Dave it goes back to the plan you for thirty years. Now, I've been telling people to be intentional with your money. Get yourself out of debt stop giving it to other people and making them rich, build your own wealth. And the thing is is that you have those habits in your life. The by product is you will get to build wealth. You will get to be able to be a blessing to help single. Moms wounded veterans because broke people can't do that. They don't have the means. I wanted to help people when I was broke. But on the money, right? Trying to feed my kids. Did you know hungry kids at the Ramsey house where we were then? Three boys. You have permission slips back in your day. When you all in school when you to have your parents, sign them. Yeah. Me too. And what I found in doing this this book is that you Americans we have to sign. Our own permission slip to give ourselves the ability to be able to build wealth. We have to believe it's okay, then start to do it ourselves. Rabbi Lapin talks about that and prosper. One of the ten reasons he found that Jewish people prosper and a rabbi studying Quadros people prosper. What was that? You can it's very difficult to engage enthusiastically, and something you believe to be morally wrong, if you believe wealth is morally wrong or building wealth is morally wrong. It's very difficult for you to engage in that. It's it's psychologically perpendicular. You know, it it it doesn't work for you..

"Day millionaires. Ordinary people built extraordinary wealth, and how you can too and Chris and our team and even outside research firm put together. Airtight research process and did detailed interviews with over ten thousand millionaires. Some of those were millionaires that we're familiar with us. Some of them were not familiar with us and oddly enough the data between the two of them matched up, but that the findings from that are in this new book it is on sale. Now, it comes out technically in January. So we'll ship it to you in January. If you buy now, and the sales are going, very, brisk David really is. I mean, it's moving at a very very good pace. And I'm excited for people to read these stories it baffles me every time. People ask me, they say how many people did you survey? Let's say over ten thousand and they you know, it's hard for people to wrap their head around there. Because you don't hear about studies that have that many people, but that's our effort to be comprehensive and to know exactly what's going on. What are the state of millionare's days? And we've got this information here in the book ten. Thousand millionaires that's a lot. I mean a thousand statistically significant. That's right one. Tom Stanley did the book millionaire next door years ago at seven hundred fifty and that was that was fine from a statistical standpoint that is makes the findings reasonable inaccurate. I mean, if you've ever had a statistics class, you know, how to do that stuff? And certainly, Chris, and I have and, but that wasn't the point the point was we wanted it to be because we knew that some of you are and some of your friends are victims and think your stock, and you would not like the message that it is up to you to become a millionaire. And so we wanted to get enough data to where it's no longer a discussion about what the facts are. It's just your feelings are wrong. And that's a big deal. Oh, it really is. I mean because now you've got to look in the mirror. You gotta make a decision, you know, and seeing the stories of the people that walked through stuff, Dave, the consistency. Over time. That's one of the things you talk about is being focused being consistent and having those actions that you just do do do. That's the things that we hear time and time again in these stories, it's not an accident. It was a decision and people can make that decision right now here today to begin to put themselves on that track. Then you gotta make it over and over and over again. That's right at one time. It's every morning you get up and make the decision I'm going to engage in the habits that millionaires engaging. I'm not going to engage in broke people habits. And that's what's outline, and no they didn't all inherit their money Nader new to this program or you're new to this discussion. In excess of ninety percent of them are not millionaires because of an inheritance, and we can get real detailed. You get down into the study. The exactly how many zero inheritance or they might have got ten thousand or they might have been worth two million dollars. Then they inherited two hundred not. So you can't say they got no inheritance. But they were already millionaires before they got it or the amount. They got was so ludicrously small that it didn't impact the math. Well, Dave, I'm until you there's all kinds in here. But I'm gonna tell you another one that jumped out at me. It's not about how much you make you see this is a number that surprise me. We were going to see higher incomes at least spectrum right? I didn't know what the average incomes are out there working life would be. But I thought the spectrum would be up over two hundred k b to and it wasn't. No, it's it's a lot of them didn't even make six figure. That's exactly right and people will shake their heads. I'm telling you you need to read the book because it's in there. Because it just snatches away. And you said a word Dave that jumped out at me. And it's the victim. Like, we've got to get over this mindset that that everything's against us. And we don't have an opportunity. That's not the case because some of the people in here really walk through some tough life situations, but came out of a really tough, really tough. But they decided, and as you said kept it consistently going so America, the American dream is alive, and well, you just have to make decision. That's true. That's a declarative statement is very accurate. So the book is everyday millionaires. How ordinary people built extraordinary wealth and how you can do. It's a great message because it's been the dream that you can financially be sombody is still alive. Is that the answer to all your problems? No, no. If you're if you're a jerk, and you get money, you're just a rich jerk. I mean, it just it's not the answer to your problems. But the this idea that you're economically. Stuck is just not accurate. The book is twenty dollars. It comes out in January. We'll ship it to you. Then if you wanna pre-order it we're going to bribe you to do that we're going to give you about fifty dollars worth of free bonus items, including in January, we will ship you. The everyday millionaires audio book read by Chris HOGAN himself with that voice. The voice of the trusted voice in America. And everyday millionaires e book and a video lesson from Chris called how to retire inspired. We'll send you immediately and a video lesson from me called it's okay to be wealthy. Sometimes you need permission to win in a culture. It's it's a weird thing. We're taught to. Apart parts of us are taught fewer and fewer of these days. It's disturbing. But when I was growing up, you were taught to work hard beyond just help people serve, and you would be successful, and you could build wealth, and you could grow a life. Then when you do all of those things, and you're wealthy. Then you have people throwing stones at you and say, oh, you've done something wrong. You must be a crook. You must be a snake oil salesman. You must be this or that. And so it's this paradox of you're supposed to be wealthy by. You're not really supposed to be. Well, that's right. And so that's why we did this lesson is, okay. It is. Okay. And the other thing we've found with mostly millionaires is they're not crooks know, they weren't shysters. They didn't run some Bernie Madoff scam. You know, they didn't run some thing that got him put in jail, or you know, that that's not who. I mean, those are such those those stories they make the news because they're so rare.

Meet new people in a low stress way and there are plenty of financial people doing seminars however to pitch up single product type two people that, attend and.
