Selling Your Life To a Stranger Is Creepy

By Erik Folgate

Check out this article on MSNBC about a guy who sold his life insurance policy to an investor for a lump sum of $125,000.

Is it just me, or does this creep you out a little bit? Knowing that someone will profit from me dying doesn’t sit well with me. I would be looking over my back and sleeping with one eye open for the rest of my life.

What do you think? Would you sell your life insurance policy for a quick $100 grand?
