Description

What would you do if you were accused and arrested for a crime that you didn't commit? How about if you realized that you'd just been scammed for thousands of dollars? What about if, due to a circumstance as unavoidable as having the same name as a criminal, your credit rating kept you from buying a house or a car, or getting a loan for college? Most people trust that everything will work out and assume that the government will help them if trouble arises. However, Robert Massi reveals what the government doesn't want you to know-daily life and decisions are fraught with potential danger, and government mismanagement often has disastrous consequences for innocent, law-abiding citizens. Familiar to viewers as a national TV legal analyst, Robert Massi has heard countless stories of well-intentioned individuals getting caught up in damaging situations that they didn't see coming. Nonetheless, the most frustrating part of these heartaches is that they could-and should-have been avoided. Massi will share some of these astonishing stories of real people-and then he'll show you how to learn from these mishaps. Touching on everything from dodging identity theft to starting a business, People Get Screwed All the Time explains how to avoid falling for scams, getting entrenched in endless legal battles, and inadvertently ending up on the wrong side of the law. Also, if worse comes to worst, it provides unbeatable tips for how to extract yourself from a wide variety of sticky situations. By suggesting small steps that can be taken today, People Get Screwed All the Time helps you to avert catastrophe tomorrow. Calling for action and awareness, this is a vital and eye-opening handbook that proves that ignorance is anything but bliss.

Professional reviews

"Here's a powerful legal guide to protecting your financial interests from criminal and bureaucratic abuse. Todd McLaren reads with enormous vocal skill and a sense of urgency that stays fresh and effective. The alarming abuses described by personal rights attorney Massi lead smoothly to his recommendations on preventing and repairing problems. It's a near perfect audio that is cleverly organized: The alarming narratives make listeners more alert to the author's clear and pointed advice. Not all the disaster scenarios will apply to everyone, but for most listeners the overall effect of this discussion will be to increase the caution, judgment, preparation, and common sense they apply to managing their affairs.
