A life of excess
Michael Carroll is the example of the lottery winner who throws the house out the window and whose only ambition is to spend to the point of satiety. These stories don't usually have a happy ending, and this one was to be no different. Carroll earned 13 million pounds in 2002, money that he invested in cars, mansions, trips and a whole series of whims. Currently, this Englishman has about 50 euros a week, and it is not that they are his savings, but he receives them as unemployment benefits from the state. Even so, Carroll has no regrets: "Going bankrupt is the best thing that ever happened to me and, believe me, I had a great time doing it," he said in an interview.
