Why Are People So Cheap?

This post has no educational value. I am just venting my frustration.

Got an email today from a member that was having a problem getting our emails. So when I investigated, it turns out that he has taken advantage of the $1 30 day trial FOUR TIMES. What a wonderful fellow (sarcasm). He went through the effort of using different email addresses and different names to create new accounts every time his 30 days was up so he would not have to pay the monthly fee.

And this is supposed to be someone who can afford to be investing? If you have thousands of dollars in the market, why would you go through all this trouble to screw me out of a few dollars a month?

You are stealing you loser. Why would you stoop so low to save a couple dollars a day?

And it’s not like he did not get any value of it. He was a member for four months and complained when he missed one email. He was obviously using the service. Hell, one good month pays for a whole year of the membership even if you only have $10,000 to invest, which is the minimum I suggest you start with.

Needless to say his account has been terminated and steps have been taken so he cannot sign up again.

Now I am going to have to waste precious time to see if this is a larger problem and many people are doing this or if this guy was the only one with no scruples, values, or decency.

On days like this, I wonder if it is worth it. It’s not like I am making millions of dollars with this site. It’s just something to keep me busy since the trades don’t take up that much time. 

Oh well, I guess it’s part of life. The sad thing is, that if others are doing this as well, I will have to do away with the $1 trial and then it will hurt the people who actually are honest enough to follow the rules.

Thanks for letting me vent. I feel a little better. I think I am going to go punch something now.
