Not a lot of point in coming then ..... I thought you experts had told him how to solve all that?

If he is here and wants to wait until the time he is able to get one .... then he needs to get around. I live what 20 minutes from Limassol, to get there by bus takes almost 2 hours and requires several bus changes. Therefore being sensible, my advise was simply ...... make sure you can get around and that is unlikely if he selects in outlying villages. :roll:

Paphitis:
Well, you lost your fortune because you're not that bright. but what is worse, is the fact you didn't get back up, dust yourself off and get back on the horse.

I will admit that I was ignorant of the subject of banking and finance, I was ill-informed because I had never been interested and was stupid enough to believe experts! Being an engineer I had always been able to rely on specialists and they were experts in their field. I thought the financial world was the same and I believed I didn’t know enough to question them.

But unlike you I was bright enough to realise that the only way I could prevent being taken for a ride again was to learn something about it. It took fourteen years but now I have to chuckle when you spout your financial expertise as it always reminds me of me when I was ignorant, ill-informed and stupid! :roll:

As for getting back on the horse, that is a daunting prospect when you have topped 60. So as I couldn’t afford to buy my own house I built it instead and to a far higher technical standard than I could get it done by Cypriot builders.

So, you think I am not that bright ..... a bit hypocritical of you seeing as the only time we meet is on this Forum where your lack of any real knowledge is only too evident. :lol: :lol:
Every rich person I know has had to do this a few times in their life. Which makes them fighters too.

You mean people like Trump?
you on the other hand, are just a bitter.

On the contrary, it was my own fault! I just put my faith in the wrong people. So, no I am not bitter I have enough to live on and don’t live the high life, so I am content with what I have. There are no pockets in a shroud.
You also presume everyone is out to get you. let me tell you, the bank isn't interested in a few measly millions or your house. You're just chicken feed and you don't know it.

Have you looked at yourself in the mirror? Nobody in that sector can ‘get’ me now ..... I know more about their system than they do!

They are only interested in high flyers like you? Why do you think that is? You will find out when the Arabs run up a debt with your land as their security while they borrow millions against it at 1% ! ..... BTW: How IS the mega-project in Cyprus we were all going to hear about, coming along. I am sure if it was a roaring success you would have made a point in telling us. :roll:

Well the world of banking and property developers reside on a somewhat higher rung of the ladder than I.
I'm trained in security have truck driving blowing shit up and kicking doors in, I have a grand in my pocket as possible job offer and a dream of a few years with the sun on my back as reward for my troubles. That's the trough I drink from. It ain't much but I'd like to think it's Do'able

Don't underestimate your talents! At your age you still have time to make a success of anything you set your sites on. Bankers and property developers are mostly at the same moral level as Lawyers! When you get into finding out how the banks work you soon realise THEY are the bottom of the pile! There are those that think differently of course. :roll: :wink:
