    Isn't $10,000 quarterly fee a rip off if it's $2,500 per month?

    Have a feeling there will be more than the "quarterly fees" to operate. Ever see the "Runner Runner" movie?

    $50K turnkey Curacao licensed setup with everything.

    Another 100k on some English football team shirt sponsor.

    And spend your other 17k on some CS help and social media marketers.

    What's the office for?

    What about marketing costs? You can pay the 167k but it's worthless when nobody even knows you exist, and even if we did you'd have to offer something good that other A+ books don't.

    $100,000 for employees? So do they have just 2 employees per book? No wonder customer service sucks.
