You can get 1.5 cash value through UR portal with CSR. I don't see why anyone would risk a shutdown for less than 1.65.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

The more you have the less it seems you can get 400k UR+ gets you only 1.35 where as 50k gets you 1.4-1.45! Crazy market now! 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
