In 1998, a friend of mine passed along a tip that some new dot com was giving out their stock for free. Mind you, this wasn’t real stock and there was no guaranty that the company would survive, but, what the heck? I went and got some free stock.
Turns out that I’m owed some cash. Bearing in mind that I never bought any stock, I almost feel guilty taking the money, but not that guilty. I’ll be sending in my paperwork tomorrow.
