  • Hi There :wink:

    When I was over in the USA recently there was a book I fancyed buying but never got around to it, its a true story of a 24-year-old banker from Toronto, Canada who embezzled $10.2 million in 1982 to feed his gambling habit. Stung: The Incredible Obsession of Brian Molony by Ross,Gary Stephen

    it was also made in to a movie:Owning Mahowny Philip Seymour Hoffman is cast in the starring role with outstanding supporting performances by John Hurt and Minnie Driver. The fascinating, compelling account of how a highly respected young banking executive was able to conceal his gambling addiction while embezzling enormous amounts of money has been vividly captured on the screen

    saw it in the local video shop but did't have the time to watch it, looks a good movie to catch though, take care and be lucky

  • Someone clever enough to "acquire" 10.2 Million, and not enough sense to know not to gamble it away. Makes me wonder want he was trying to gain in gambling with it, as if 10 mil wasn't enough money to buy what he wanted? I'm a gambler and I know what I can afford to wager, and most of the time I can totally afford to play more than say, 5 or 10 dollar tables, but I usually don't as I honestly enjoy betting a winning a couple hundred as much as I do a couple thousand, if not more. I dunno, maybe I'm the weird one, and he's the sane one :)

Howdy, Stranger!
