    So you are sayiing he went to a jewelry store put down 30k and based on that 30k down payment was given some time to pay the remainder of the bill.

    Pretty simple business transaction if you ask me.

    None of your business where he got the money or if the store owner agreed to let him pay the money back in a certain period of time.

    Happens every day.

    "QUACK, QUACK, QUACK!!!" - Lance Thomas

    so you have no proof is what you're saying?

    If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and waggles like a duck...it is highly likely it is a duck

    He doesn't.

    But it sounds like he's calling UNC's decades of academic fraud going back to Dean Smith's first championship "a duck" or something...

    Lance was sued by a New York company based on his purchase of five pieces of jewelry at a cost of $97,800 while he was enrolled at Duke University. Rafaello & Co. extended Thomas a line of credit for $67,800 so he would have the funds to purchase the jewelry. Thomas was required to, and delivered a $30,000 down payment.

    If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and waggles like a duck...it is highly likely it is a duck (and endless keystrokes from bogey does not change Lance from being a duck).

    What indication do you have that Lance Thomas' family didn't have any money? What do you have to show that his mother was only making $50K a year? Given that the median hourly wage for assembly line workers at the Big 3 plans is $27 which works out to $56K annually it would seem rather odd that someone in management would be making less than that. Especially someone who lives in a town where the median household income is $97K.

    And, as 903 pointed out, Thomas' mother wasn't his only relative. As Jeff Goodman wrote at the time, Thomas' uncle Monty was a business owner who made certain that his nephew didn't lack for anything.

    Finally, terrific work on that rent stuff. You would almost have a point if by "during the same period could not afford his rent" you meant "a few months after he couldn't afford his rent." You know... actions that would be consistent with someone who blew a nest egg of cash his family had given him.

    Sorry for the paragraphs - I know it can take a lot of time to sound out all those words.
