The Cheater Says: I love these guys. Remember: You can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, or about 5 million people at once if you’re a bank.

“Hey Cheater, how come you’ve been so quiet lately? Seems like there’s a lot going on for you to talk about, from the Olympics to the campaigns to every day ho-hum scams. What up?”
The Cheater Says: Talk is cheap, but I’m not. All that cheating you mention? Yeah, that’s me. My doing. I’ve just been too busy consulting with these heroes to write blogs for free.
Just remember: Every time you see something sketchy, unethical, a slimy in the news… I’m involved. Buy this book or book this talk for more.
Here are some drugs:
Real – Epipens
Real – Russian ‘Roids
Fake – Theranos: How Elizabeth Holmes’s House of Cards Came Tumbling Down
Campaign – Pay to Play, Mr. Trump?*
*I mean, really, his whole campaign/career/life is just an inspiring case study for my book/course/life. More on this grifting hero to come (& in the book already)!

Our next Pre$ident is, obviously, stealing all the ideas in this amazing book. Good for him.
Here’s the NY Times crying like a baby about “How Donald Trump Bankrupted His Atlantic City Casinos, but Still Earned Millions.”
And, here – ironically from Chapter 18 – is where he got the idea:
CHAPTER 11 IS THE BEST CHAPTER IN ANY BOOK
If all else fails, declare bankruptcy, grab your severance, and let everyone else fight it out. It’s that simple. Really. Bankruptcy allows your deliberate and destructive misdeeds to be forgiven and to be done all over again. Along with its cousin Restate, Bankrupt is a Great Cheater’s best – and most legitimate – friend.

So much cheating lately, sorta feel like my work here is done. Nonetheless, these recent news stories caught my assistant’s eye.
“Hedge Fund Manager Buys Rights To Critical Drug, Hikes Price By 5000%”
This is exactly why I wrote the book & tour the show. Go get ’em, cheaters!
“The Man Who Got No Whammies”
Life is a game show waiting to be scammed. For money.
“Americs’ Most Admired Lawbreaker”
What, it’s Johnson & Johnson? Not me? Fine, we can both be awesome, rich, cheaters. #FirstOne’sFree

This guy here, he gets it.
“So much of our corruption is in plain sight these days. The events of the last decade lead invariably to the conclusion that in every booth on the midway every wheel is conspicuously rigged.”
You’re welcome. – The Cheater

It’s a new month, and time to reflect upon some great cheating. We all know about the headline grabbers – like FIFA and the NFL and the billion dollar election and the big big bank settlement (if not, be sure to follow our twitter) – but here are a few under-the-radar schemes you may have missed.
Read, learn, copy, enrich and enjoy! – The Cheater

On the latest entrant into the “raise your profile for book deals and speaker fees event” (a.k.a. Running for President 2016):
Carly for Prez!!
When @CarlyFiorina drove HP into the ground, her severance was *only* $21 million.
A man would’ve gotten $28M.
In fact, he did.
@MarkVHurd followed her & got a $28M severance.
75 cents on dollar, ladies.
