Spoiler

"I'm a liar or I'm rich."

 

Liar - Since he is a liar, the statement is true... so the liar cannot say it.

Poor truthful man - Since he is neither a liar nor rich, the statement is false... so he cannot say it.

Rich truthful man - Since he is rich, the statement is true... so he can say it.

Thanks for the input. Yes your answer may have been acceptable but a solution to the puzzle has now been offered. 

It was a puzzle in connection with an AI programming dependencies and interactions scenario.
