   Mr. Peter Jade

Wait a minute.  I thought your name was peter frank.  Hmmm.... something is not quite right.  So I ask him,

Why can't you just give me the money. You seem rich.
If he can lend out anywhere between $1000 and $10 million, he should be able to give at least some of it away to me.

If i give everyone my money then i will become poor 
Can't argue with that logic. I decide it's time to get down to brass tacks.


Do I need to pay you any money in order to get my loan?
He answers,


Yes you have to pay for the loan approval fee and it cost just $80

A loan approval fee? That doesn't sound right.  I proclaim,

Loans don't have approval fees!   

He has a great comeback.

Go and take from your local bank then and see.
If I go and take from my local bank, I'm going to get charged a lot more than $80.  It's going to be more like 10 to 20 years.



Banks have NEVER made me pay a loan application. NEVER. I promise you that's not a thing. So what are you really up to? 

Surprisingly, he's answers honestly.

If you can give me just 30,000 dollars I will be rich because I will invest this money in a business and my life will change for ever 

Okay, hold on.  He can lend me up to $10 million but $30,000 will make him rich?  Why doesn't he lend some of that money to himself?  I tell him I am beginning to suspect that he doesn't actually have any money to lend me.

I have told you already that once you pay the fee, your loan will be transferred to you and that is 100% guaranteed.
You know, as opposed to those 85% guarantees that are so popular these days.  I ask,


How is it guaranteed?  


He says,

I swear to you that you will get your loan once you pay the fee is give you 100% guaranteed Ok.

Whoa.  Now this guy is swearing, he's pretty serious.  I ask him,

What do you swear by?  

He answers,

by my little girl

I ask him how old his little girl is and this is where he slips up.

2 years 

What peter frank or Peter Jade doesn't realize is that I've had a 2 year old girl before.  And she was a disaster to live with!

Speaking from experience I say,

Two year olds can be a lot of trouble. Swearing on a toddler's life doesn't mean very much to me. Do you have anything better to swear by?
 He says

You are completely heartless 

Well, he hasn't met Alice.




Note:
Alice ended up growing up to be a pure delight in our home.  Her messes proved to be a result of her extreme intelligence.  To read her high school graduation speech and see the beautiful woman that she became, click here.
