Well, it's "official" -- I have been assured by my anonymous tipsters from the Deep State/Dark Web:
that Lloydminster's most renowned and infamous undischarged bankrupt, Patrick "Super Quintuple Threat MMA Cosplay Street Fighting Man etc etc" Ross, has decided to prevent me from seizing any more of the $100K+ that he owes me by ... by ... simply never having any assets to seize for the rest of his natural life.
I am not joking, this is what I've been told.
Apparently, Patrick's too-clever-by-half strategy to deny me any further of his cash is to blow all his money, then remain unemployed in perpetuity such that there is nothing for the Saskatchewan sheriffs to take anymore. Technically, he's correct -- more than one lawyer has confirmed for me that you can't take assets from someone who has none so, in that sense, I guess this is what Patrick sees as his "blar-har-har" moment: "You can't take anything if I choose to remain utterly destitute for the rest of my life. Victory is mine!"
Well, OK, I guess ... but that implies that Patrick had better steer clear of all loans, gifts, income and inheritances, and make himself comfortable in his mom's basement for the next few decades since, as someone coming up on 41 years of age, he should expect to be there for the next 30 to 40 years, watching UFC and eating dill pickle-flavoured Doritos straight out of the bag, waiting for the "ding" that tells him his Tater Tots are ready.
In any event, just to play it safe, the SK sheriffs will be stopping by his credit union on a regular basis to clean out whatever happens to be in his account. Oh, and Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy is still looking for Patrick, having become increasingly irritated with Patrick's refusal to respond to numerous e-mails, phone calls and letters, so Patrick's celebration might be short-lived when the OSB inevitably gets ahold of him and drags him in to answer questions about his finances, assets and potential inheritances over the last several years.
And what with Peter Skinner about to crush Patrick's idiotic million-dollar defamation action (and possibly have Patrick declared a vexatious litigant), I'm starting to think I'm the least of Patrick's problems.
Oh, and I almost forgot -- while it's a couple days early, Mar 19 will be Patrick's monthly "Happy Interestversary" Day, whereupon Patrick's debt to me will have increased by another $500 or so (which it will be doing every month, again in perpetuity). For the mathies out there, this means that if Patrick resolutely remains in a state of utter penury for the next 10 years, his $105,000 debt to me will increase to just over $170,000 (plus 10 years worth of sheriffs' collection enforcement fees).
You're all caught up now; that is, until the OSB finally gets ahold of Patrick. I'll keep you posted.
