Man hands out cash in New York (February '09 News)

submitted on April 25, 2010 by gabyperu in "Member's Lounge"

Imagine getting $50 for doing absolutely nothing. Well in New York, a man is giving away stacks of cash to anyone who's prepared to stand in line for it.
The mystery man, who calls himself 'Bailout Bill', says in the middle of an economic crisis ordinary Americans who are struggling to make ends meet deserve a bailout.
The minimum anyone can get is $50 . The maximum is $5,000.
No matter who you are or what you do Bailout Bill guarantees that you'll get something if you just show up and tell your story.

    I like the origami pic. I can remember making those when I was in grade school. Smile

    Many here don't seem to care. Rodriguez, who's 24, said the entrepreneur had a big heart.

    "Basically I just need to pay my bills and save money, and this money helps me do that. With my $50 I'm going to grab a McDonald's now."


    Yes that is the type of financial responsibility that will really make that $50 go far! Roll Eyes

    Bailoutbooth.com is supposedly the website being promoted, however I can't even get it to load. It is obviously down. Good marketing idea - bad implementation
