As we prepare Part II of The Guide, we thought it would be helpful to give everyone a supplement with updated information critical to your flight after consummating a massive financial fraud. We have culled the massive system of tubes and pipes to give you real-world based guidance. Of course, you should always consult your professional financial, legal and fraud advisers before embarking on a multi-national flight from justice.
Do: Keep a low profile while traveling.
A low profile is key. Hard as it may be to lower yourself to it, Winthorpe, you should be flying coach and looking like an out of work engineer. The time for living a slightly elevated lifestyle (without the attendant social flamboyance) is after your escape, not before or during.
Don't: Wear expensive cowboy boots and show the flight crew your hoard of $4 to $5 million in gold.
Yes. They are very impressed. And now they will never, ever forget your face.
Do: Obtain a second, third and even fourth passport.
Names must become as disposable as Depends undergarments.
Don't: Carry all your passports at the same time in the same bag.
I mean really, do I need to explain this?
Do: Plan to go to [Mexico/Venezuela/Costa Rica/Paraguay/Israel/Switzerland].
The first step in escaping justice in the United States is not being in the United States.
Don't: Return to the United States once you have departed.
Which part of "The first step in escaping justice in the United States is not being in the United States" did you not understand?
Do: Plan your foreign flight carefully.
Obviously, picking a destination at the last minute and without forethought is a bad idea.
Don't: Discuss your plans with anyone.
The point of "foreign flight" is for people not to know where you are. Duh.
