GOP wiseguy Rick Wilson writes Memo to Trump Fans: Conman-in-Chief Will Betray You All

The Cheater Says: Yeah, no duh. That’s what great cheaters do. My question for you, “Rick Wilson,” is why are you spilling the beans instead of cheating your way to eating your own big slice of grifter-pie? Plenty to go around…

Cheating prevention: Read this other book

September 18, 2017

The reviews have started pouring in for The Cheater’s new book, Dollars And Sense.

“Engaging and funny, rife with anecdotes and advice, the book defangs a difficult topic while teaching a lot.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“A lively look at how even the wisest among us are too often fools eager to part with our money… A user-friendly and often entertaining treatise on how to be a more discerning, vastly more aware handler of money.” – Kirkus Reviews

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS HERE

Dollars and Sense hc c

The Cheater Says
: You can use the book for good. Or you can use it for REALLY GOOD (winky face). Up to you (other, creepier winky face).

Papa’s Got A Brand New Cheat

May 30, 2017

From The Cheater himself (taking a break from advising the President):

PEOPLE!
I’m excited to reveal the cover of my new book, “Dollars and Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter.”
I wrote it with the amazing Dan Ariely (“Predictably Irrational”) and it will officially hit shelves on November 7th.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS HERE

Dollars and Sense hc c

I’ve got a lot more coming in the behavioral science space – after all, what is comedy if not the study of human behavior? – but this is the beginning.

Forgive my pending self-promotion (I hate it more than you do).Nonetheless, I am excessively proud of this book. Took a LOT of work and a LOT of time and well, here you go.

More soon…

Wells Cheatgo

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.

Real Drugs, Fake Drugs & Candidates on Drugs

September 7, 2016

“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)!

Donald Trump Stole My Bankruptcy Ideas. Good.

June 11, 2016

Hero.
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.

Details below… (more…)
