Interesting Facts

At the age of 17, Spiegel was driving a 2006 Cadillac Escalade, which his father bought new for $56,000; later wanted a $75,000 BMW 535i. He also wrote a note to his father asking for $1,992 a month for car, food, entertainment and clothing expenses. He also wanted a $2,000 "emergency fund" because his "life is full of unforeseen expenses". His father who was already giving him an allowance of $250 per week refused. As a result, Spiegel racked up more than 11 bank overdrafts. He asked his mother for the car, who finally agreed but he soon got a speeding ticket for driving 62 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone.
