If I give you my attention, support, energy, trust and money for a good cause you better deliver your promises.
If you can not pay me back the favor I will not ever speak to you again.
Fraud is a deception deliberately practiced in order to secure unfair or unlawful gain.
Look, I would love to expand my operations into your countries
but, quite frankly, your business methods are too violent.
Let me tell you a true story.
Five hundred years ago, the Portuguese and the Spanish came here,
each trying to get the country from their natives.
The Spaniards arrived, guns blazing, determined to prove who was boss.
The natives killed every single Spaniard.
Personally, I prefer the methods of the Portuguese.
They came bearing gifts.
Mirrors, scissors, trinkets.
Things that the natives couldn’t get on their own,
but to continue receiving them, they had to work for the Portuguese.
And that’s why all Brazilians speak Portuguese today.
Now, if you dominate the people with violence,
they will eventually fight back because they have nothing to lose.
And that’s the key.
I go into the favelas and give them something to lose.
Electricity, running water,
school rooms for their kids.
And for that taste of a better life,
I own them.
I apologize for the interruption.
We’ve found them.
Pardon me, gentlemen.
He who cares least, controls the relationship
To delay is as good as to deny.
For some people it is best to get the promise in writing as otherwise those people tend not to live up to their promise.
If I own you a million dollars, I have a problem, but if I own you a billion dollars you have a problem because you have to collect the money from me.
