Whats the craziest display of wealth you have ever seen vol .... $$$$$ - Page 7

I had no idea you could sell social media accounts. I mean, you could really sell anything I guess but I would've never thought of a IG itself as valuable. Mind blown.dope thread.

Nobody initially thought snapchats like AHG or any random 3 character combination would hold any value, but rich arabs started requesting them and buying them for $250 and upwards while the values of actual word snapchats were still lagging behind. A friend of mine made loads of money by jacking dozens of 3 character snapchats and selling them to arabs for $250 and up. Nowadays the prices of snapchats have increased significantly and can go over $1000 for real word minimum character length usernames like Fun, Big, Law, ...
Generally the shorter the username and the more exclusive, the better for Arabs. Even if the name has no meaning like those random 3 character snapchats. Something they especially pay a premium for is short repeating character usernames. For example GGG on snapchat, FF on instagram, ... They will pay a lot more than non-Arabs for those.
Most non-Arabs put a much higher emphasis on meaning rather than character length and would pay more for something like "Astronaut" on IG than a random 2 character username.

Despite being in that business for a few years now, I'm still not quite sure why exactly these wealthy arabs have such a particular interest that's different from just about everyone else. The vast majority being either from Saudi Arabia, Dubai or Qatar.

Good post

Just a heads up the reason they go for those short names is they don't want their families knowing about their accounts.

Many of my Khaleeji friends can't embarrass the family and while everyone knows these guys drink smoke and **** around, it can't be public where other families or government people can see.

I have a friend he goes by Mase and hes social media is full of cars, clubbing and women but he will never show his face. This fool has a wife and kids but thats for the week come weekend he be in the clubs turning up.

The culture here is crazy and while conservative its extremely liberal just understated

Oldest son went to ASD, and I would occasionally drop my son off early, to see the vast amounts of kids being dropped off in 911 Carrera GTS', gold plated G-Wagons, various Lambos, AMG Coupes, etc...

They have a yearly week-long car event, where exotic cars trade places with the normal taxis to take you to your destination.

My barber told stories of his clientele that paid upwards of $1200 for a regular haircut (he would complete the haircut at their private residence).

Summers are painfully hot there, and local Emirates like to ship their car fleet to Europe to enjoy, while on 3 month vacation.

Funny you mention the haircut part....

My tattoo artist goes back to Kuwait every other year for the Summer when he needs money.

Him and his wife work as contractors and he does tattoos on the side (he's really good).

Anyway, he tells me that he can make over $150,000 in 2-3 months doing tattoos.

Two of his houses are paid off (one is being rented, so that's extra money), all his cars are paid off, he as no debt.

All he and his wife do is travel the world. mean.gif aaannnnddd he just turned 30. sick.gif

Yeah that's exactly what he said... he said he charges anywhere between $1,000-$10,000 per session.
post #194 of 200
I knew of a guy charging 1000 i believe it.

Like Lebanese get tattoos and have no problem showing it, so if they are in the GCC i can see them wantibg to get something done instead of waiting to go back home.
post #195 of 200
Hmm. I guess other artists aren't aware of that.

It really is crazy to me... but I didn't want to question him or go into detail.

But how does the currency exchange work? He makes $150,000, brings it to US and just exchanges it?

Do they also use dollars over there? Pay him in Land and Gold? laugh.gif
post #197 of 200
Nah if you got foreign currency its best to check the rate. Like here the rate is good to go from Dirhams to dollars. That **** sucks back in the states.


As for his amount i know they trip at customs if you bring anything over 10,000 usd. Now they have us bank branches here like Chase just for people to ve able to deposit money and come back.

Gold is MOS DEF an option lol

The timing couldnt have been worse for myself... travelling via Abu Dhabi to DFW next weekend, and am stuck with packing my macbook pro and other electronics in my checked baggage. About to bubble wrap the hell out of my gear, and hope for the best (more worried about tampering and/or theft than anything else)... smh
