The promotion of a wannabe "consumer guide to selling structured settlements" is tragically flawed and symbolically turning an old time confidence trick every day.
The hashtag #structuredsettlement is a minefield. Each day these fools bomb Twitter with sky scraper images, bearing the symbol of a petty thief, the "mitch*, boodle*, Chicago Bank Roll, also known as the Michigan Bank Roll, which Merriam-Webster dictionary defines as slang for "a roll of paper money consisting of a bill of large denomination on the outside of small denomination or counterfeit bills.

The structured settlement secondary market is an unlicensed and a large part conduct unregulated marketplace where the "boodlers" are slowly but surely being exposed. In the meantime it may be wise to stay away from people who try to pass a "confidence trick" every day.
