Introduction By Robert K. Stephen
Could it be The Penniless Pensioner is one of the most interesting characters inhabiting the globe today? That will be up to you to decide.
From feedback I have received there is no doubt in my mind he is misaligned, misunderstood and some of you have remarked he is marvellous.
If you have been reading about his exploits on this website there is no doubting The Penniless Pensioner, or PP as we call him, is surrounded with beautiful women, adventure and espionage which are lacking in most of our lives.
As for beautiful women we have seen Lola Frieberg the Tirana Tigress, Celine and of course the dubious Russian Svetlana. PP likes his women far younger than himself. This is no surprise from someone trying to conquer a dream!
I am but a ghost writer yet one who has been at his side in many of his tumultuous moments so I can temper and validate his stories. This will be no fictional and rose-coloured examination of this remarkable man. You will get PP raw and ready. We are going to serialize this autobiography here on this website. Subject to reader response PP has inked an “intent to contract” with Unrealistic Pictures headquartered in North Hero Vermont for a major film on his life. It is a bit early to discuss the film but I can say as a fact that Nicole Kidman has expressed interest in playing Lola Frieberg the Tirana Tigress based on the fact of the unknown friendship between PP and the late Reggie the Egyptian Rescue Dog. Ms. Kidman and Reggie as you know starred in several movies including the autobiography of Reggie.
Before we delve into the story of this remarkable man many of you have asked why “penniless pensioner”. That is complicated indeed. PP has at times been impoverished particularly when his Panamanian bank accounts were frozen but these setbacks were momentary. PP is neither a pensioner nor is he penniless. He earned the nickname Penniless Pensioner due to his short-lived role of a lawyer on the Bernie Madoff legal team. Mr. Madoff rendered many of his pensioner clients penniless so PP’s reputation was besmirched by the tabloids as “The Penniless Pensioner”. I am not sure how that makes any sense but the name has stuck. At this point PP wants to keep his name out of the press. PP has received several death threats from Mr. Madoff’s former clients so he wants to protect his identity until he clears his name by publication of his autobiography.
Readers enjoy the voyage.
