Was helping my son move to his new house (yes, I bought him a new house with part of my settlement money) and took a bunch of old junk to the trash dump. Was off-loading the crap and noticed something off to the side of the truck beside a busted up old chest of drawers.

I kicked the front of the busted up drawer over and, lo-and-behold, an old colt revolver. It is in absolutely beautiful condition. Wonderful patina and bluing. It's a keeper !!! Put it in my truck and kicked around the old chest for any other treasures. Found a bunch of old personal papers. The previous owner must have missed it when he threw away the chest.

My lucky day.

yeah, that happens to me all the time.

rummaging around the dump, find old furniture with weapons inside. So far I have found an AR, two AKs, an RPG, and a russian suitcase nuke.

was probably a murder weapon that someone discarded to rid themselves of the evidence

Since you're rich now and can afford to buy one why not raffle it off to a lucky ARFCOM member?

Right.

On 1/13/06 you posted this:



Not bragging... really... I'm not. I got hurt on-the-job (disabled) and I'm to receive a whole lot of money real soon (don't ask 'cause I ain't sayin' how much... but it is ALOT!!!!).

What would you do with a truckload of $$$$$ ???? Buy gold? Invest in a bunch of class III stuff?? Buy stocks/bonds?? Invest in a business venture??? Buy one of every kind of cool rifles/pistols?? Maybe give a big contribution to the church/poor ???

I've never been in this situation before in my life and it kind of scares me. I like my house, car and motorcycle so I don't want or need any modes of transportation. Help me decide what to do with it, please. (settlement papers are being drawn up and should be disbursed in about 30-45 days).

...and today you've already bought a house and are moving in?


BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Has your truck load of money arrived at your doublewide?


You guys are soooooo suspicious and think everyone is a liar. I went to my bank and talked with a loan officer. They agreed to give me a line of credit based upon the settlement that is to be done soon with the stipulation that the proceeds will be deposited in my new bank account there. They confirmed the settlement and amount with my lawyers. I was issued a letter of credit.

I can't discuss the terms of the settlement (confidentiality agreement) but suffice it to say that the amount exceeds $2.5M with 40% going to my attorneys. Once settlement papers are signed the check from the insurance co. has to be deposited into the laywers trust account for 10 days to give the check time to clear (like a well-known insurance co. is going to write a bad check!!). Once the 10 days are past then the funds are to be transferred to my Wachovia account.

I bought my only son a new home and I'm going to pay off all my debts and get myself a few new "toys". The rest will be invested for me by a wealth manager.

I wasn't "digging" in the trash at the landfill. My kid threw away a bunch of old stuff to move. I may be "loaded" but I'm not a stuck-up, snotty, a##-hole who thinks they are better than everyone else. Yes... I take trash to the dump just like everyone else does. I'm not a "hoity-toity"... I liked helping my kid.

As for the Colt, I read several of the replies and thought it was a good idea to talk to the police. I took it to the precinct nearest to my house and they are to run the serial number for stolen and to see if they can locate the owner. If it isn't stolen and no one claims it, they said I get to keep it. When it is returned to me (if it is) then I'll show some pics.

Do you honestly wonder WHY people are suspicious?

It was 10 DAYS ago that you posted that you were going to get a lot of money, and you are now saying that you just couldn't WAIT for a month to spend it, so you went to all the trouble of getting a bank loan and line of credit, just so you could run out and search for a house, and find a house, and buy a house, and get the title papers done, and start to move in - all in 10 days??

For 99.9% of bank loans, lines of credit, home purchases and title papers, it takes a little more than 10 days total to do what you are describing.

And - with all of your incredible wealth, you want us to believe that you (with a work disability) would HAUL GARBAGE to the dump yourself. Why not pay someone to do it?

It would have to be a pretty damn severe injury to be worth $2.5 in a SETTLEMENT, not a judgment - so I find it hard to believe that you are just running around, loading and unloading stuff off a truck.

But, what do I know - perhaps it was a severe brain injury



That said - I'm not calling you a liar - I'm just saying it is entirely reasonable for people to be suspicious.

Professor, you are exactly right. I have sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve damage from exposure to either cyanide or a combination of cyanide and carbon disulfide. I have chronic pain, parastesia and numbness. My medical doctor has diagnosed me with bi-polar type 2 disorder as a result of the chemical exposure. I have excellent lawyers, thus, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

OK... to PROVE you are all full of bull-sh*&t, and that I'm not lying, when I get my settlement check, I'm going to post a copy (naturally, I'll have to redact the name of the insurance co. and bank account number). Even then you cynical bastages probably still won't believe but that's your problem, not mine. Till then....
