Dear Readers: Through the years, people I don’t know — probably nice and sincere people — have asked me for money. They’ve asked for money to buy a used car, to invest in a patent, to buy two water scooters, to move to Australia, to purchase a red Corvette, to fix a roof and to build a grow house for pot production. One reader had a treasure map he fervently believed was valid — and it may have been. He wanted $137,000 to finance his search somewhere in Guatemala!
