    Any personal seeming email that starts with something like “Dear Customer” should set off the scam alarms. You don’t ask someone to send you $400k without even knowing their name.

    So I'm guessing you aren't a supporter of the CIC.

    All National politicians are thieves. Both sides. Everytime.

    But no other politician comes anywhere close to Donald Trump. Any reasonable person can infer that based on his obsession with keeping finances completely opaque Trump is hiding significant inappropriate behavior.

    Most of them were millionaires before they were ever elected to office. As an example, your fellow righties have cited Nancy Pelosi as an example of a millionaire member of Congress while failing to note that her net worth is largely attributable to her husband, Paul Pelosi who was a successful real estate investor and venture capitalist before Nancy ever ran for any office.

    A number did become wealthy after leaving office as the result of positions as lobbyists, attorneys or executives in firms that did a lot of business with the government.

    In defense of Barbara Corcoran, although she was the real victim and suffered the $400,000 loss, it appears that her bookkeeper, assistant and accountant were the ones who were actually conned.

    I agree. Makes me wonder if she has any recourse against the bookkeeper. The bookkeeper wired the funds based on the assistant's email, which actually wasn't from the real assistant's email account.

    Dude is allegedly a billionaire RE developer and a stable genius. How on gawd's green earth can he not fork over his financial statements????? Geebuzz crhissy what the tango foxtrot do some people not get about that???? Hiding documentation is the biggest tool in the tool box for RE thieves. He could make it ALL go away with a single tweet or email. It's not like he doesn't have access to them. Refusal to disclose financials in the RE biz means no bank financing. Unless one can get a liar loan. From whom you ask? Oh yeah Deutsche Bank. Gomer Pyle is surprised, surprised, surprised.

    Who knew??? Liar loans (stated income stated assets) are designed for borrowers who would not otherwise qualify for the loans. I guess I learned nothing from 30 years in the RE lending industry. Applying Trump logic I clearly know...what Sargeant???

    Just as any reasonable person who has nothing to hide hides nothing. :rolleyes: Especially if any reasonable person who is a lifer in an industry where providing tax returns and other finacial data to obtain financing during the normal course of business spanning decades does and doesn't have any problem doing so.

    Unless there is something to hide.
