MOB #96 – Cars for Clunkers, Robbing 99 Year Olds & Feedback

June 29th, 2009 · podcasts

In this week’s episode of Millionaire or Bust, I covered the news and dug into some neglected feedback. First, I covered the news for the week:

  1. Oil was at $69.22/barrel when I checked on Monday, June 29, 2009 at 5:23 am EST.
  2. With 5 bank failures, the bank failure total reached 45 for the year.
  3. I found out that most car shoppers will not benefit from the cars for clunkers law.
  4. Plus, people have to beware of ‘Cash for Clunkers’ scams.
  5. The water company tried to rob a 99 year old by increasing her water bill by almost 4000%

Then I got into the feedback. First off, I had a voicemail from Shawno of Hyper Nonsense fame. Then I had an email from Carlos G. Salgado Schwarz, Esq, CPA. Finally, I had a comment on Show #95 from Shawno again.

    I bet that woman in Washington with the water bill has a secret shark tank she doesn’t want anyone to know about, and she used all of that water maintaining it. You know how old people can be with their pets.

    You’re probably right, Shawno. She was probably constantly changing the water. I wonder how much salt she was going through also. Definitely an expensive pet. Wonder how much the food would cost. 😉

    You have to be aware of possibility of scams on everything nowadays.
    As far as the lady with the outrageous water bill, I hope that she gets it straight because it is completely ridiculous!!! Maybe she is donating water to the whole neighborhood!
