Nobody Gets Puni$hed

Biggest Fish Face Little Risk of Being Caught

The Cheater Says: There are two le$$ons in this.
1. Go big, or go home. Small crime – like petty theft to feed a family – gets punished. Big crime – like scamming the country into ruin – doesn’t.
2. You might get caught cheating… but that doesn’t mean you’ll get punished cheating. In fact, getting caught cheating is just an opportunity to cheat even more. In China, the word “problem” is the same as the word “opportunity.”
We should listen to China: They have all our money.

Ex-Banker Gives Data on Tax Evasion to Wikileaks

The Cheater Says: Don’t worry about it, cheaters, just do some not-at-all-guilt-ridden prep like Bank of America did. Remember, you can’t spell “making millions by cheating on your taxes” without “cheating on your taxes.”

Cheating Death

June 10, 2010

Billionaire Pays ZERO Estate Taxes

The Cheater Says: There’s a year without estate tax. I’m not saying this is a good time to fake your death, passing all the money to your trustafarian heirs, then have them donate it to the Your-Name-Here Charitable Foundation… but consider it. Right, Ken Lay, Sam Isreal, Jimmy Hoffa, and that guy from Damages? Right$

Reader Cheats

June 1, 2010

From the comments page:
“When I was in college I figured out how to get a free college history book, what I did was I ordered the book online then when to the store to pick it up, then I sent in my mom to pick up the same text book, now i had two text books, then the next day I returned the textbook for a refund, and I got to keep the other one.”

The Cheater Says: Neato. But that’s not really getting RICH cheating, now is it? More like getting 50 bucks cheating. Should you charge kids a 50% of their take and rent out malnourished “moms” from impoverished countries… and also run the publishing company, credit card processor, and university… then you’ll be on to $omething.
