    She's been on here quite awhile. Never saw a pattern of that. If you have, spell it out. An off-hand comment to PM her about advice doesn't strike me as soliciting.

    On the other hand, a PM to me (or anyone) out of public view from her on that subject would be a possible red-flag for me. Never happened.

    I just think she should buy some ad space if she wants to start advertising as a financial consultant.

            I had read somewhere that his investments weren't doing too well. I believe he got hit pretty hard during the financial crisis and not really sure if he has recovered.

            I read that they weren't doing well enough to get to $1 billion in the time that he wanted, but that he'd crossed $130M a few years back. Can't seem to find anything else on him, perhaps he's keeping a low profile. But it would be great to see if he gave in and spent it, or lost it in the risky investments or if he's still on track, albeit slowly.

              I don't think anyone here will be PM'ing you for investment advise.Spam

              But it was nice of you to offer your services.

              I was simply trying to be nice and clarify some question he may have had about investing and not soliciting for business. I trade different lines of investments for a living and I am a CFP. My husband runs a private hedge fund which is closed to the public so we are not looking for any additional clients.

              Perhaps in your line of work trolling is how it's done but I live in the real world and we do things quite differently.

                      The Price Money in Powerball is manipolated by the People who set the Price after every drawing because if it starts with 40 Million and then every

                      after that it only grows by 10Million there something not right,there must be a lot Money going into the States Pockets and not in Prices,then nobody can tell me that there is every Drawing coming in the same amount of Money  and the Price Structure doesn't account for that, the Prices in the Jackpot doesn't go up over 10 Million a Drawing until it gets to 90 or 100 Million then the follwing Drawing it will go to 120 Million, it is obvius the Lottery is playing with the Price Money it is not handled in a right way and honest way.

                        With only 5 numbers to match and you get $1 million seems like a jackpot to me. I like the new structure since it generates bigger jackpots. Jackpots are getting higher and higher; I'm sure more and more players are placing their bets. Good luck to us!
