ER earning opportunity in Greece

What could go wrong with this?

"Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has tried to reassure creditors that Greece will not default. But in a sign of how desperately Greece needs money, his government plans on Monday to present a raft of measures to European finance ministers in Brussels in hopes of unlocking aid quickly. That includes a proposal to enlist “casual” tax spies — tourists, students, housekeepers and other nonprofessional inspectors — “to pose, after some basic training, as customers, on behalf of the tax authorities, while wired for sound and video,” according to a letter accompanying the proposals that the Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, sent to Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the head of the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers, last week.

Sounds like a great way to ensure that you don't outlive your assets. Greece has a very strong anti-snitch culture.

Not to mention that all the money spent on life insurance will not have been wasted. Your beneficiaries will have a toast to your foresight.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
