A Sobering Post

I strive to keep things upbeat here at The Surprise Millionaires however I recently discovered some information I would like to share.  By chance I viewed two separate crime programs profiling gentleman that we would categorize as “Surprise Millionaires”.  These gentleman unfortunately met with foul play specifically because of their wealth.

This underscores the reasoning why our Surprise Millionaires very wisely keep their wealth a secret.  It appears that the wrong people were trusted or were somehow made aware of the victim’s wealth in these situations which resulted in tragedy.  If you have a “Surprise Millionaire” in your life please encourage them to be very careful about who they share this information with.  I will post links to news stories below regarding each gentleman.

      Absolutely! That’s why I only profile folks who have already passed on. Unfortunately, we live in that kind of world where it is necessary.

    Thank you for posting this. It is a tragedy, but you’re right to call attention to the situation. Well-intentioned friends and family can always be reminded to be more aware and cautious.
