Uncle Lenny and the scam.

Uncle Lenny used every trick in the book. He was a fortune teller. He could read you palm or some other vibe and predict your future, delve into your past and just come up with something. He once predicted for me that I should not ride a bike. Something about an accident in the future. For that reason I never bought a hog. He also said I would not be concerned with money in the future. Another brilliant prediction.

He would hold meetings. Like seances and con old people into a reading of some type. He would tell them vague things. He could read people.

Here is a sample. You will meet the person you are searching for soon. You have met the person of great significance and they will guide you. Money is coming soon. You are extremely creative but have not used your talent yet.

I think you got the drift. General that it might fit and vague enough to be believed. I know he got some money for the readings but the truth of the matter is that by declaring himself a religious entity he got the whole ball of wax tax free.

This was really his scam. The division of church and state allows people like Uncle Lenny to develop a religious sect. This church or temple can declare itself exempt from taxes by simply filling out a form. You can become ordained by another facility and then you are free of paying taxes.

Now there are churches and there are Churches. Churches have real significance for they give a moral compass to the masses. But Lenny had a church classification which was askew from the higher moral compass. Did he believe in himself? That I am not sure of. I believe he felt he was doing good and he reaped the benefits of his creativity.

Now, my prediction for you. One: Watch your step. Two: Do not buy that big thing unless you have really looked into your finances. And Three: Believe in one and two. Now I am not incorporated so even though you wish to send me money, do not. I can not afford to be in the next tax bracket because Lenny was right. I am comfortable with the money coming in. And I will not go on a bike so I guess his second prediction was right too.
