Easy Money

I’ve heard of some crazy scams in the past but this one takes the cake.  A Czech couple recently convinced a Swiss bank to loan them 3.5 billion dollars.  Not thousand, or even million…BILLION!  I thought I had to sign a lot of papers and provide a lot of documents to buy my house.  Imagine what you’d need to borrow $3,500,000,000 to start an international airline.  I thought Frank Abagnale (from Catch Me If You Can) was good but he’s got nothing on these guys.

  1. okay, seriously one of the best things I’ve seen all week. Got quite a laugh out of me!

    Stupid Swiss bank! WHO in the world LOANS billions of dollars to someone? If they’re worth billions of dollars they don’t need a LOAN!!!!!!!! That’s like a 350 MILLION dollar monthly payment…
