When I lived oversees and our little company was destroyed by a criminal who worked for a Russian who needed to launder about $ 100 Million the lawyer letters, the court dates for yet another court case against us and the threats and bully measures would always come late in the afternoon on a Friday.
It took us a while to understand why that was and how it served several purposes. For example because it was weekend our lawyer (We didn’t have one on retainer all year around being a really tiny little company) would not be able to deal with the threat and we would be left with the max amount of stress at a time we needed to rest from the working week. Our opponent knew we were stressing out and he could have a pleasant weekend enjoying the mayhem he created.
It was a very effective strategy. We ended up diagnosed with CPTSD (Complex post traumatic stress disorder) and financially destitute.
We where not his only victims. The real estate portfolio he was trying to destroy so he could buy it for pennies on the dollar and rebuild to be able to legitimize the money he wanted to launder had about 9 different businesses in it and all of them were destroyed by this technique which by the way was totally legitimate even though it destroyed all of us both financially and personally with one gentleman succumbing to a heart attack brought on by the stress.
So when I read this article about the advice given to an elderly lady in Cyprus by her economist grandson I knew from experience that this was a known technique to cause the utmost emotional, financial and physical stress and you can bet your bottom dollar that WHEN it happens here it will happen in the weekend too.
Mark my words!
An elderly resident of Pathos in Cyprus has been doing something odd for the past few weeks. Every Friday she goes to the bank and withdraws all of her money, then returns it on Monday. When asked why she gave the following statement to bank employees:
“My son is an economist in Russia and he has been telling me, if something happens with the Cypriot banks, it will happened on the weekend. He told me to withdraw the money every Friday.”
She was laughed at by the bank employees, but now unlike most of the country she has access to her money while the banks in Cyprus stay closed until at least Tuesday of next week. While the Cypriot legislature did not pass a bill that would have taken between 6.75% and 10% of bank deposits, who knows what desperate politicians will do now to get their fix of financial aid from the IMF. At least one person won’t be affected, thanks to a caring grandson.
