'Get rich quick' nghĩa là làm giàu nhanh, dễ dàng, lợi lộc nhiều, tốn ít công sức (of or characterized by generating a large sum of money quickly and (typically) without requiring much effort or energy); làm giàu không khó.

Ví dụ
The Belarus-born Henry Kaye headed a get-rich-quick property empire that targeted unsophisticated (chất phác, ngây thơ) investors. It collapsed in 2003 owing 3500 investors up to $60 million.

From “get rich quick” strategies, which end up making only the person devising the strategy rich, to dating cons when you find out the man or woman of your dreams is a money-draining cad (đồ ti tiện, vô lại, đểu cáng); people are continuing to have the wool pulled over their eyes and the savings pulled out of their bank accounts.

Mike and Irene Milin were known to law enforcement officials in a number of states for a host of get-rich-quick schemes and alleged real estate scams. They were prosecuted by the Texas attorney general for deceptive trade practices, and sued by the makers of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, to name just two of the Milins’ many legal entanglements (vướng vào khó khăn, mắc bẫy).
