After being scammed out of $43 million and pretty much having my life ruined, I think I would probably be contemplating on killing the people who did that to me as well. Crazy the world we live in. Sad reminder of how we can't really trust anyone today. I have experienced this on a much lesser level in my life. We live in a very selfish world and it appears as if everyone is out to get you.
