I have a bridge to sell you

Parker, best known for "selling" property that he did not own, most famously the Brooklyn Bridge. A: "They said that I would get returns as high as $20,000 if I gave them an initial investment of $1,000." B: "Wow, you fell for that? Well, I have a bridge to sell you, if you're interested!" If you really think that these companies have your best interests at heart, then I have a bridge to sell you!
