There's a sucker born every minute.

Clearly this phrase is as relevant today as it was back when it was first spoken.
People have and always will be suckered into quick money scheme.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Could you be speaking of that ponzi "Dare to be Great" scam that engulfed pals of mine?

They tried but failed to suck me and my cash into the vortex. Thankfully! :hailjo:

Could have been the whiskey, might have been the gin.
Could have been three or four six-packs,
I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in,
My head is like a football, I think I'm gonna die,
Tell me, me oh me oh my,
Wasn't that a party?
