Welcome our new Official Accountant!

Howtomakeadollar recently welcomed our Official Fact Check Guy (OFCG). You can read about it here. 
We are pleased to report that OFCG has become an active commenter on this blog, and has made our blog a significantly more trustworthy source of information. In light of the success of OFCG, we are now pleased to announce the addition of The Official Accountant of Howtomakeadollar. (TOAH)

We corresponded with him over email, and will post this correspondence directly below. I'm sure that after reading his qualifications you will agree that he is an ideal candidate for the job.

Howtomakeadollar needs an official accountant to help cover up a few mistakes and indiscretions on our balance sheet. Since you are not a real accountant, and presumably will not ask many questions, we think you are our top candidate for this job. If you accept it, you will occasionally be asked for advice or input on certain blog posts. Additionally, you will be expected to comment on our blogs whenever you feel that your input is worthwhile, unless you don't feel like it, or if you have other things to do. You can use the nickname "Official Accountant of Howtomakeadollar" in your comments. Please keep your new position a secret. You will not be paid.


Howtomakeadollar Ethics Board

>> Re: official accountant position at Howtomakeadollar

I am sincerely honored to be chosen as the "Official Accountant of Howtomakeadollar". I can only assume that you chose me due to my highest of ethical standards and passion for complete fiscal transparency that I have demonstrated in my former positions at Sallie Mae, Goldman Sachs and the US Treasury.  I also feel quite certain that when I scrutinize your balance sheet for errors and indiscretions that I will find none, just like when I worked for AIG.  If need be, I can always add a few zeros to the end of any accounts that may, at first glance, appear to be troubled.  I learned this trick from my friend Ben at the Fed.  (this is, by the way, a good way to make a few dollars - just add a zero or 2 after the "1" on a "1 dollar bill". Most people will not notice that the wrong president is on the bill, but I digress).

My only condition is that  you don't ask me any questions about my accounting procedures.  Just show me the balance sheets that you are concerned about, then come back in a few days and breathe a sigh of relief.  No questions necessary.

I accept this position with gratitude!
