The Psychic Sweetheart Swindle

There's really no harm in believing in psychics - if you don't mind losing $15 mill

It always amuses me when someone is smart enough to make a fortune, then dumb enough to lose it in the various ways so many of them do. I think: conning the con man. Sad only if the money was honestly earned, and if so, then sad anyone would be so attached to something or one that he cannot have.

Or..... was he just old and dottering?

Did you watch it? It was nothing like what you are describing. I thought it was sad because he was so lonely and trusting. I also thought his father's business plan was steadfast.

No Seg, I did not watch it. Nothing for me to "learn." Heh, heh.....I assume I don't have enough money to be the target of anyone, and then I remember the jerk-0ff on Craig's list that sold me a $5 computer modification kit that was missing the key part I was after. Some people, the minority % of which I am afraid to guess at, will cheat people just as an exercise of their ego.

The news you consume affects your mental health...............

............................mind the gap.
