    I know 99.99999% of these sites are scams. However i found a couple that could seem realistic(i realize it is still a long shot . They offer .9% back daily(not like those crazy sites that offfer 120% back in three days). There minimum is also 1$, so it is worth investing maybe $5 just to see if it is legit?

    thanks!

    P.S I'm sorry if this is not the right thread, but i couldn't find anywhere else to post this, so i decided to post it in the lounge.

    There are some of those 1-1.5% daily ones that do pay out for few months, maybe even a year or so, but if all you're going to "risk" is $5, then is it really worth your time?

    I dont mean $5 is all i will put in, I was going to put in $5 to see if they pay out, then i may put in a couple hundred. Just wanted to see if it was even worth my time.

    Thanks for the reply

    99.99999% .... make that 100% :) The only difference between the ones offering 120% in 3 days and the ones offering 0.9% a day is the time that they stay at float and the "investors" they target.The unrealistic hyips got very very unpopular in the past years so more admins are trying to disguise their programs as legit investment companies by lowering the % which as an added benefit gives them extra time to stay at float. The owner of a 120% daily hyip for example has to come up with that extra 20% daily and as soon as the new money stops coming in or the flow gets slower he cant maintain the % but an owner of a program that pays like 1% daily has 100 days just to return your investment which is plenty of time to find new suckers who will fund the old ones :)

    Don't ever forget the efforts governments (mainly the US) put in to destabilize or destroy hyips and paid surfing programs over the years, to make sure none of them would succeed long term. The only thing these sites really did wrong was using ill-advised hype language in calling themselves "investments" or "high yield" programs, instead of micro-job (pay to surf) or gambling sites (hyips) that they actually were.

    This gave the feds an opening to persecute them under SEC regs, usually without legal due process, and also run them down in a propaganda war, that continues to this day. From funding DDOS attacks to raiding processors, no matter what the program's formula, or solvent or insolvent in structure, 'something' would go wrong beyond the scale of coincidence or incompetent management to bring it down. This speaks more to the strangle-in-the-crib manipulation of new money making opportunities, than to all of them being online scams.

    You really think the US government is the reason people offering a 30% return after 30 days can't stay in business?

    Idk, man, it looks more like the SEC is doing their jobs by shutting down obvious ponzi's.

    They are all scams!

    I know for 100% sure that they are all scams and you will lose your money... There are legit investment programs out there, usually you wouldn't be able to find them online easily, especially using a US IP address.. Most of them are blocked from the US/EU and other countries.

    All I can tell you is South America is a good place to look for REAL investment ops. Chile for instance has a gold mine of opportunities for US and non US investors.. You just need to think outside the box and do some research. It's not something us who know about this type of thing makes readily available to the general public for obvious reasons.

    Good Luck!

    I really think the progams weren't all offering 30% returns, yet whatever their structure, and whether they were paying out or not, the feds went out of their way (and jurisdiction) to push them out of business. It was never established that they were "obvious ponzi's" (since merely having a pyramid structure is not the same thing as intent to defraud).

    It is not the SEC's job to be regulating things that were not securities to begin with, nor for it to be disrupting an emerging opportunity demanded by the free market. If they were really trying to shut down Ponzis, they would have stopped the big banks and Wall St. from running up trillions of dollars in derivatives debt, and would have shut down Social Security.
