Reading this might save you $17,118.33 or more and hopefully a painful & expensive lesson.
Point blank, this amount was stolen from me.
I trusted in someone & in good faith and I just paid the price. I am not here to point fingers, cry woe is me or seek sympathy – I am here with the sole purpose of sharing this loss and lesson with the hope of preventing anyone further being f*cked over by any opportunistic & desperate lowlives.
The truth is, you never know what people are capable of so you need to be educated & protect yourself at all times – and by every means necessary. Don’t trust, hope or wait. You need to protect your money, idea’s, possessions, IP etc because someone could just take it – and probably will or waiting too if they get the opportunity.
It’s sad to say ..but sadly it seems that most people are out for themselves, greedy, untrustworthy and/or have alterior motives these days – especially the ones with no purpose, skills, or integrity.
I’m here to just remind you not to assume that everyone has the same morals or values as you do – and that it’s a risk that you shouldn’t be willing to take.
I didn’t see it coming so it was a real smack in the face. It hurt and I learned a hard lesson and want to share it. While I have never shy’d from sharing my wins & losses – this one is the hardest & heartbreaking one to me – and the most crippling in its own way. Money is one thing & it comes and it goes …but betrayal like this is another. It cuts deep. Cut*
…I was gonna teach him a lesson or get him one taught …but what’s the point? People like that can’t be taught nothing – that’s why they amount to only that. Sure, it would have been a nice moral victory but I hold myself higher than that nor is it how I want to represent myself or live my life. He knows how it could have played out and how weak he is deep down & that’s enough for me. I woke up this morning & decided to air it & and bury it – now I’m going to bed tonight on top & that motherfucker can’t do nothin bout it.
Living well is the best revenge.
