Invest in yourself right now. The black market economy in Maine is alive and well!

Welcome to Maine.... that is waht we do here. Your closer than you think, you just don't have the scenery and snow.

$110,000 you can have my house, my job (if they'll take you) and most of the houses furnishings. I can't wait to move.

How many IDIOTS lost their shirts throwing money at that load of snake oil?? Deservedly so. The old saying that if it seems too good to be true.....There were a great many who never heard that addage.

Just the day to day volitility of the market should be enough to keep anyone with a brain from investing in the stock market today.
Too many people bought into the idea that everything they had was worth more than it truly was realistic measures. The "my house is worth a quarter mil" crowd who financed on pipe dream equity numbers. Bankers and financiers who bought and sold people's loans as if their debt was a real investment. Even the car makers bought into the "toxic" loan market.
My home mortgage was sold twice at the original closing table in 1997. Look how many investment consultant offices replaced Mom and Pop in storefronts. The greed trickled down faster than the prosperity.
