When enough is far too much..

Telegraph: Property tycoon takes his own life after amassing debts of £5 million

He bought his first investment property in Yorkshire in 2000 and by 2003 had a portfolio of 84 buy-to-let properties across the county, generating £250,000 a year.....a doomed attempt to join a Romanian property scheme in 2007 left the family "virtually penniless".

I wouldn't have posted this strange story which invites schadenfreude. A Romanian scammer found a naive target.

Personally, I don't think it's in bad taste to bring attention to this story. A tragic tale of unfettered greed. 5 f*cking million! What a C**T!

Quarter of a mill income at one point via BTL and still managed to shoot himself in the foot. That takes some doing.
