    Hey,

    I'm looking at Prosper.com as a potential for some good 9%+ returns on some cash over the next year. Since the markets such anyways...

    Anyone have any experience with Prosper?

    I dealt with Prosper way back in like 2006-07 and did ok....i think in a depressed economy there are better places to make better returns though depending on what kind of money you are playing with

    I have heard Euro Pacific Bank offers some type of investment with average 20% per quarter return. I dont have account there but you may take a look here and here.

    I have used it and i gained a little bit of return but in most aspects you need money to make money when it comes to something like that, the more you put in the more youll get back, I havnt been there in a while, what is the % of return they are giving you if you dont mind me asking?

    I use it right now. and get about 9% return on my money. If you want more risks you can get up to 20% but than the loans are for people with pretty bad credit. You can also sell your notes if you want. Any time i have some spare money i put more into it. Min investment is 25 dollars to buy a note.

    Prosper has been around for a long time now. They do a very good job of protecting their investors through a series of credit checks. If you decide on investing with them, they will give you a detailed risk report on any potential investment. As with anything, I'm sure you know that there is still a risk of loss, so only invest what you can afford to lose. But overall, I would recommend them.
