Every other Sunday I get together with a group of friends for a day of RPGing. This week three of our seven member gang bowed out. Jeff, the current GM mumbled something about running a one-shot in a different system. I was hoping to get the chance to try out Risus: The Anything RPG, because at six pages (and that's including the optional advanced rules) it seems perfect for those occasional one-shots.
Alas, at the last minute, Gregory bowed out and with so few people left to get together, today's game just fell apart.
Bunny recently received an 88 page booklet in the mail called The Overnight Millionaire by Russ Dalbey, which outlines three easy steps to making money hand-over-fist.
I scanned through the 88 page booklet. It's not until page 13 that Mr.
Dalbey mentions what the
scam plan is based upon—the “Cash
Flow Note” business. It's basically matching sellers of “notes” (read:
mortgage), who're currently receiving monthly payments (say, on a house) but
want to cash out, to buyers of “notes,” investors who want a steady
stream of monthly income.
So the “three easy steps” are (starting on page 37):
- Find note sellers.
- Find note buyers.
- Introduce the two, getting a cut of the action.
But then again, so is writing a metasearch engine.
Amusingly enough, as of today, the top result in Google for “The Overnight Millionaire Russ Dalbey” is Russ Dalbey—Winning in the Cash Flow Business Complaints.
It's amazing that in the age of Google scam artists can remain in business.
