I'm a Trillionaire

Yes, I am now a trillionaire!  I invested less than 30 dollars, did no work, and waited less than a week.  I promptly received the return on my investment: a total of $260,000,000,000,000  issued by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe in 2008. 

The problem with this rich quick scheme?  It's only paper.

Zimbabwe hyperinflation reached it's peak in 2008-2009.  Hyperinflation was preceded and caused by droughts, a large national debt, the redistribution of wealth, and "uncontrolled government spending."  Read more at the Dallas Federal Reserve's website.

Would you like to be a trillionaire like me?   You can for 1 cent plus $4.99 shipping and handling  (here)  or (if you're interested in hundreds of trillions) here or here.

But if you're hungry, I recommend you skip this investment and use your 5 dollars to buy a Whopper at Burger King instead.  Don't invest in something that can quickly lose its value with the whims of politicians.  Invest in something real that has inherent value--be it sandwiches, businesses, gold, silver, or oil...because, well, you can't eat paper.

  2. Bethany,
    This is quite a message that you have. May I add that investment of time in heavenly things is also profittable and has inherent value that will last for eternity.
    May God bless you for your thoughtfulness.
