The dark side of the rich list: Top businessmen are plagued by approaches to & # 39; sugar babies & # 39; & # 39; making all kinds of suggestions & # 39; after their enormous wealth is revealed
- Australian Financial Review publishes a list of the richest people in the country
- Successful business people flooded with messages from opportunistic women
- Billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes says there is no & # 39; benefit & # 39; is for the Rich List
- A number of men are affected by messages & # 39; sugar babies & # 39; mailed when they are published
Successful business people who made the Rich List of the Financial Review revealed that they were subsequently targeted by gold-seeking & # 39; sugar babies & # 39 ;.
Earlier this month the publication published its 200-person list of Australia's richest people.
But some Rich Listers have complained that being on the list is a dubious honor and comes with a lot of unwanted attention.
& # 39; More than 50 women sent all kinds of messages and emails with all kinds of suggestions & # 39 ;, a businessman told Good Weekend Magazine.
& # 39; There seem to be many & # 39; sugar baby & # 39; s & # 39; looking for benefactors, & # 39; another businessman said.
& # 39; A young lady from Eastern Europe recently started a conversation with me in a hotel lobby and asked if I would be interested in a sugar baby because she needed $ 10,000 for study costs. & # 39;
According to billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes, the publication of the Rich List is the & # 39; worst time of the year & # 39 ;.

The CEO and co-founder of software company Atlassian said there was no & # 39; benefit & # 39; is for the publication of the list.
& # 39; Unless you want to show off in a weird way. But then buy a freakin & # 39; billboard, right? & # 39; Mr. Cannon-Brookes said.
Mr Cannon-Brookes is the co-founder of the Sydney-based Atlassian Collaboration Software Company.
He and co-CEO Scott Farquhar started the company after graduating and financed it with credit cards.
Mr. Cannon-Brookes was listed as # 215 on the Forbes billionaires 2019 list and # 5 on Australia's 50 richest 2019.
There were 17 additions to the Rich List this year.
