Let's Say You Have 50 Million Bucks

Would you...

1) let someone write and sign your checks for you?

2) let someone pay stuff without your knowledge?

3) NOT noticed it until 40 million of it are gone?

Apparently, (1) and (2) are normal for wildly successful personalities who are too busy making too much money. Say, for example, Patricia Cornwell, who, according to this news article, lost said $40,000,000 because her investment company mismanaged her funds. By mismanagement, I mean, highly illegal stuff like the fund manager cutting a $5000 check for his daughter's Bar Mitzvah. From her account. Without asking her.

And here I was complaining about my bills this morning. I should've called Ms. Cornwell's fund manager to send me several signed checks to take care of my problem ;-P.

Anyway, I'm thinking that if I ever have 50 million dollars in the bank--heck, 10 million, I'm not greedy--please, God, give me the wisdom not to let someone sign my checks while I'm busy, busy, busy writing.



Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Good-goobly-goop! Seriously. I just don't understand how that happens. You give someone that kind of power and there's a really good chance their going to be tempted.

Why is it people who don't want the responsibility of all that wealth are the ones who have it? I must be doing something wrong.

I just caught up with your blog posts; read the reviews.

I was planning to read the Virtually series after Book 3 comes out next year but that sounds really dumb now.

So, once I'm done with Special Forces by Marquesate & Vashtan, I'll start on Jed. (SF is a free e-book, one million words plus, violent, gay action erotica but the love between the 2 men have got me hooked like no other MM romance).

When I finish it, I'm going to need Jed to remind me I'm not male and I'm not gay.

In 2000, Patricia Cornwell's estimated net worth was $120 MM. Nine more years of books flying off the shelves would add substantially to that amount...yeah, she might not have noticed 40 of it going missing.

Of course, even Oprah the billionaire signs her own cheques. What makes Cornwell, who's only a multi-millionaire, think she knows more about money than Oprah?

Ann,

Hey, nice to see you here ;-).

Yes, I know the wealthy's idea of chump change is a little different from mine, but still, not separating one's money into different accounts or even checking the bank statements monthly to see what's going on smacks of either stupidity or arrogance. MHO, of course. One can't be this trusting with one's gabillions!
