Any medical degree actually... You know there's those doctors who book 2 separate appointments for you just so they can collect double the insurance money. And you know there are those dentists who say you need X, Y, and Z done, when you really don't.

Not trying to say all doctors are like that, but there's a handful who are.

You could say that about any profession, trade or calling, though.

The most lucrative scumbag jobs are lawyer jobs.


Proposition 65 attorney. Consumer safety class action attorney. False Advertising class action attorney. Securities class action attorney. Americans with Disabilities Act attorney.

Unlike a personal injury lawyer, you don't have to worry about actually finding clients that have been injured. You can simply develop bullshit cases, sue big companies, and get money due to settlements or retarded juries.

A few years ago, I would have suggested patent troll, but that particular scam has become so hot and well known, that it's getting harder to find decent patents to troll with (and a recent change in the law made patent marking trolling obsolete.)

Two paths, both in finance:

(a) insurance sales: sell lot of insurance, you get the premiums. There are all sorts of insurance vehicles. 

 

(b) finance: get rich people to

  • give you 10 million 
  • leverage that by 100 million by borrowing from the Fed Res. at negative, 1%, or 0% interest
  • invest the 110 million
  • take a 15% plus 500,000 "administrative fee."

Have you done this before? That is very detail!

DAMN!

Thats what I was going to say. There are people who made millions just by doing that.

But seriously, sell drugs. It takes some work to get to the top but the market is huge.


true but you need to pay protection and need to hire muscle. also, chances are you are invading someone's territory...you may need to buy guns (or steal them) to protect yourself.

i say, if you are good looking, work out and develop a model body and go on "dates" with older, rich women. make them fall in love with you and screw (figuratively and literally) them out of money. good luck.

I recently watched a great documentary on AMC about this.

I don't know about renting out land but gambling and trading (same thing) are extremely difficult to make a lot of money at. A mildly retarded child can make ~40k/year gambling with less than $15k operating capital but trading takes a lot of money to get into and a ton of time to make any money at.
