    I post this thread in response to a JV thread because I can't post on the said thread. I feel sorry for the people who invested and given the run around. Question is "how can people so be gullible?". How can we prevent this from happening again?

    You cannot, you simply need to invest smarter, rather than sending money away get the people to work with the tools your purchase, under the offers belonging to your accounts etc.
    Stay on top and cover your back at all times.

    "There's a sucker born every minute". I know the tread you're talking about, and you can see that some of those people have been scammed multiple times on various forums as well as this one.

    I guess it's just uncontrollable greed.

    Answer is simple: if the median IQ value is 100 - half of the population is below that :eek:
