A very close friend of mine told me today that his father had scammed roughly $1 million from a few people over the course of 6 years. I was devastated because this man had seemed like an awesome guy when I met him and wouldn't do that to people. The police arrested him on friday on 3 charges of fraud over $5000.
Now I have no sympathy for the man but my friend is absolutely crushed. Im just being the best friend that I can but its hard. I mean his father will be going away for at least 18 months and his entire family is essentially being harassed by the government who froze all of the families assets and is now putting the entire family, except for my friend, under investigation. Meaning he is the only one who can access maybe $2000 from his account. The worst part is that the few people who know about it don't know how to treat their own friend. Its disgusting. I know what its like to have a father who may not exactly be in the best books with the family so as of right now, Im the only guy who is sitting down with him and talking to him about it. I dunno, Its a lot to deal with and just needed to let that out.
Its been one hell of a god damn day.
