I think all of us at some point in our lives have been duped into giving somebody some money that wasn’t exactly used the way we thought it would be. But for most of us, that means the five bucks we gave to that guy who said he needed a bus ride to Utah actually went to get him a six pack of Schlitz. It’s one of those life lessons you learn when you’re like 22.
Former NFL running back Corey Dillon apparently didn’t learn this lesson, though. Dillon dropped off his Ferrari at an auto repair shop that wasn’t even authorized to work on Ferraris, and somehow in the process he ended up “investing” $470,000 in the shop, which of course was used on things like booze and hamburgers and not on the business. How did he get from dropping his car off for repairs to losing a half million dollars?
