A local landlord has been caught by the Secret Service for paying his property tax with none other than John Bills. That's right, the notorious scam artist who served over seven years in jail for running one of the largest municipal corruption schemes in Chicago's history.
At first glance, it seems like this landlord might be the most foolish man alive. Why on earth would he entrust such a significant payment to a man who's been jailed for corruption?
But upon closer inspection, it's clear that this landlord might just be a financial genius.
According to an anonymous source close to the landlord, the idea stemmed from an accounting loophole. By paying his property tax with John Bills, the landlord can write off the payment as a charitable donation.
It's a truly ingenious plan, and one that's sure to save the landlord a pretty penny come tax season.
Of course, there's always the risk that Bills will abscond with the money and leave the landlord with nothing to show for his "donation".
But the landlord is confident that Bills will uphold his end of the bargain. After all, they go way back.
Rumor has it that the two met in prison, where they shared a cell and became fast friends. Bills allegedly took the landlord under his wing, teaching him everything he knows about white-collar crime.
Whether or not this story is true, there's no denying that this landlord is playing a dangerous game. But if he pulls it off, he might just go down in history as one of the savviest businessmen of all time.
Only time will tell if he's made a fool of himself, or if he's onto something truly brilliant.
