Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 24
Charlie was totally clueless. He could only imitate the elders around him and protest. As they were chanting, he asked the uncle beside him to understand what was going on.
It turned out that this Axel Insurance company was offering some insurance packages with extremely high returns. This group of elders had been attracted by the high returns that they became the company’s clients by buying a lot of insurance products under the name of the company.
According to their agreement, today was supposed to be the day they received their dividends, but when these people came to claim their money, they found out that the door was locked tight and only a few employees were left at the door to block them using lame excuses.
Eventually, they realized that they were victims of a fraudulent investing scam.
No wonder Elaine had urged him to come and help her to protest.
Charlie massaged his forehead in agitation. He asked Elaine, “Mom, how much did you buy?”
Elaine said frantically, “They said that we can get a lot of dividends from the insurance investment, so I was brainwashed and bought their products with all our savings…”
Charlie gaped in extreme shock. “What? You used all your savings to buy participating policies?”
Elaine was so ashamed by his remarks that she turned angry and shouted, “Do you think you’re the only one who has a mouth? Why do you talk so loud? Do you think I’m not shameful enough? Why don’t you use the speaker to announce it!”
Still furious, she continued to taunt Charlie. “If you were even a wee bit successful, do you think I’d have bought these fraudulent insurance products? If I don’t buy some insurance for my old days, do you think I can expect you to take care of me?”
This useless man couldn’t support his own family financially, how dare he be a shit-stirrer here?!
Then, she growled at Charlie, “I warn you, continue to chant, don’t you dare stop for a moment!”
Charlie pursed his lips and nodded. “Okay, Mom.”
At this moment, several ladies came over and eyed Charlie before asking, “Elaine, is that your son-in-law?”
Then, they looked at Charlie’s outfit again and mocked, “Oh my goodness, why does he look so pathetic? He’s not even half as good as my son-in-law!”
“Yes! Look at his outfit, it’s so outdated and worn out! Even I dress better than him!”
The old ladies gathered around him and exchanged ear-piercing mockery. It was very annoying.
However, Charlie didn’t mind at all. They were just a bunch of old ladies who had lost their entire savings, there was no need for him to stoop to their level.
Elaine was very angry and irritated. The more she listened to the teasing, the more discomfort she was as she looked at Charlie, so she blurted, “Just wait and see, I’ll let my daughter divorce him in a few days and let her marry a rich husband!”
Charlie smirked and thought to himself, ‘A rich husband? Even if you combine all the rich sons in Aurous Hill, they aren’t even worth the cost of my belt buckle.”
Elaine was very worried right now. She couldn’t depend on Charlie the loser and the most he could do was chant at the protest.
She needed someone capable to help her in getting back the money.
Unfortunately, Wendell, who had been pursuing her daughter, had gone bankrupt now. Otherwise, she could ask him for help!
She suddenly remembered Kevin, Gerald’s cousin whom she met at the banquet yesterday.
She recalled how attentive he was towards her daughter and assumed that the man had some feelings for her.
Although the White family was not as prestigious as the Jones family, they were still considered a prominent family in the city. He might have a way to help her.
Luckily, Kevin left a name card yesterday. She retrieved her phone and dialed Kevin’s number.
