Millionaire Mobster Blog: Uncle Louie, June 1, 2012
"Uncle Louie, I need your help," my niece, Mia tells me. We're on the phone; Mia's in Tampa and I'm at my office in Boca. Mia is Angie's sister's kid, a pretty girl with a bum for a boyfriend. And Mia really does need my help. Turns out her jackass boyfriend has talked her into embezzling five grand from the Chevy dealer she works for. Hmm. Not good. Mia's been caught, fired, and given an ultimatum: Make good on the money, and we won't prosecute. She calls me up in tears. "Don't tell my mother," she pleads."It'll be our secret," I promise. "And of course, I'll give you the money. But you've got to get rid of the bum."
