Penny wise pound foolish

I can't understand it, some people are really penny wise pound foolish. They can't see the wood for the trees. I fear that a bad decision may be made in the interest of saving money. Ugh.

Pesky investment caller

Ooh, a call from some guy in Toronto wanting to sell me socially responsible investments. I told him that I have no interest in his investments or information regarding it. He said surely I have an interest in making money and I told him no. He went on saying that I am not in the business of charity and surely.. and that I was close-minded in that I didn't want to hear him peddling his investments and.. I did the prudent thing.

It was some angmo dude. His script was one that I have heard before, exact same script. That other angmo called from Tokyo. Smooth talker. The claims of locations was amazing in every instance.

There must be victims for these scams, otherwise, there wouldn't be so many persistent calls over the years.
