Amazing. This guy got a windfall of $17000+ from an account that his father had before he died. He didn’t know it, but went to a site that lists unclaimed money and found it. Apparently it didn’t ever dawn on him that he could have saved the money because the caption says he already spent it. “Thanks for saving Dad. I’ll honor that by blowing all of it on some material stuff as soon as I get my hands on it.”
Wesley Goodman of Kenner, La., recently learned his father, who died in 1987, had a credit-union account worth $17,421.61. Goodman used the money to remodel his home and buy furnishings.
It’s almost like people are afraid to save money. Every time I see someone inherit money from their relatives, it’s like they go on a shopping spree. I bet you’ve seen it too. I really hope that I can teach my kids that spending all the money is not the objective in life. I’m not working so hard to hit my financial goals just so my kids can blow it the day after I die.
