16 Legal – But Unethical – Ways To Get Rich Quick

Most of us will never know what it’s like to be rich. We hope that we’ll be comfortable, or we’ll get to a point where we’re not living paycheck-to-paycheck, we’ll be able to save some and not panic about unexpected expenses, but rich?

That’s usually something you’re born into.

Unless, of course, you don’t have to worry about ethics – because according to these 16 people, there are ways to make money if you’re not worried about how it’s done.

16. We hates it.

in app purchases in children’s games

my mom lost $50 because of my cousin tapping purchase, and no confirmation was needed.

15. A little niche.

My favorite is the person who sold pet-care “contracts” that would kick in after the rapture.

You see, many believers own pets and apparently pets won’t be raptured.

This person billed themselves as an atheist, so would remain behind and be available to care for the pets after their owners were gone.

Legally, it couldn’t be claimed that the rapture would not occur, so it was a valid agreement.

14. This is valid.

Marriage for money.

You can marry in a minute what you can make in a lifetime.

13. It’s not as easy as it looks.

Selling books about getting rich quick.

“Buy my book for $40 dollars on how to get people to buy your book for $40.”

12. But only if you’re clever.

If you’re clever you can make good money abusing trademark & patent laws.

Real estate has a ton of dark corners for the ethically flexible, so long as you don’t mind being compared to a vulture.

11. You get what you pay for.

Years ago when newspapers were more common, someone had a brilliant scheme. They had posted an advert that you could buy a portrait of the queen. It was cheap like f10,- so many people ordered.

What they got in the end was a stamp send in the mail. Nothing illegal as it was indeed a portrait of our (then) queen.

10. Apparently…

Apparently apply for a PPP loan and lay off your staff and keep the money.

So many companies did it and had their loans forgiven.

9. It’s the circle of life.

become a fake guru and sell courses about nothing

They sell courses to teach you how to sell courses about selling courses.

8. Find out how!

Are you gullible? If so I can teach you how to be less gullible.

Send €5000 to my revolut account before the end of February to find out how.

7. Quite the racket.

In the 80s there was a big boom in viatical settlements. Basically you pay someone to become the beneficiary of their life insurance policy. The assumption is they’ll die soon and you’ll get a big payout.

They get the benefit of using the cash they’d never have been able to. A bunch of folks started buying up the policies from people with AIDS… and then the retroviral drugs hit the market and many of these people got paid millions and lived for many many more years.

6. He would know.

“You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion.” ― L. Ron Hubbard (science fiction writer and founder of Scientology)

5. But seriously don’t mess with that guy.

I knew a guy who was a “witch doctor.” He charged $25,000 to cast a spell to bring an ex-lover back to you.

It never worked but there was nothing that could really be done for you as he had all these forms stating that be made no guarantees since the spirit world did what it did. He was very popular too, which I could never understand.

I told my wife I’m going to stop practicing law and become a witch doctor as the hours and pay are much better. She vetoed that idea.

4. A well-kept secret.

Charities are only required to use a small portion of their donations towards the actual cause.

Also charities that are about awareness for a cause don’t have to give anything to research, because they’re just about raising awareness. Which their company does by getting money.

3. The old-fashioned way.

I made my money the old fashioned way….

🎵I got run over by a Lexuuusssss.

2. As long as it’s worded carefully…

Selling cheap stuff like it’s valuable without direct lying, only misleading, ass covered legally.

1. They’re all scammers.

Send me $1000 and I’ll tell you*

P.S don’t listen to them other guys, they’re scammers.

These all make me so uncomfortable, y’all, how about you?
