    Hi,

    I normally wouldn't ask for money, especially here, but my business cheated me and my budget is very tight right now.

    Of course loan would be best for me, but I have never paid taxes, so no chance for it.

    Any amount within the range of $100 to $5,000 is welcomed. I need a couple of thousands to fuel my campaigns.

    I'm going to return twice the amount invested most likely in a couple of months. I think it is a fair deal.

    There is no risk involved.

    Yes, that's correct.

    Money will be used for Internet marketing in general. Mostly media buys.

    Statements like this always make me giggle.

    What sort of collateral are you offering? Your house? Your car? Something else?

    If the answer's that you're not offering any collateral (or that "the same campaigns have worked great in past and hence they will work this time around as well" - no real difference) then the deal is really quite far from "no risk involved".

    I for one consider this misleading advertising and stuff like this nulls all chances of getting anything from me. Without such statements and with a few more details regarding the project I would've gladly considered shipping a few k your way.

    Just something to bear in mind next time.

    By saying "there's no risk involved" I meant you will get your money back. Doesn't matter what will happen - you will get your money back, because I'm a honest person who WILL use this money properly and WILL give it back.

    Besides that, it should be obvious that details are provided by PM. Do you expect people do outline their business plans and life biography in the thread?

    Your thanked reply made me upset, because it undermines my credibility as an honest person.


    So, I'm still looking for somebody willing to invest money. There's no risk involved.

    Of course there is a risk involved. Especially when you say "most likely".

    Instead of saying "there is no risk involved" I'd say "there is very little risk involved for the following reasons x,y,z," and spell it out.

    That's unfortunate that it made you upset, but your statement that "there is no risk involved" is not valid just because you claim you're an honest person on the internet. Bernie Madoff ran his scam on the premise that he was trusted and look how that ended up. I'm also not saying that you aren't honest but you have to acknowledge that there is a possibility of risk in any transfer of money from one person or institution to another, especially without collateral as bryonon mentioned. You said you haven't paid taxes, what happens if you got say $10k invested in this project and then the IRS levies your bank account and everything is gone? Probably a small likelihood that would happen but it IS a legitimate risk along with other normal ones from an arrangement like this that I consider.

    By saying "most likely" I meant the estimated amount of months.


    You're obviously right - nothing is for sure. I might die tomorrow. In my country it's easy to fly under the radar, though.

    I know this is late..but in regards to this. I did not get anything at all. I invested $300. We talked and I said he could just send me $150, he said multiple tiems he would pay me the whole $300 back, but he never ever even made a $1 effort. Dont deal with this slacker!

    Another member here, unable to post in the jv section states :
    "I feel your pain. I invested with Ritu as well. I never was paid back. Nor did he do anything even when I offered to get him work doing whatever I can get him to do.

    Just constant delays, etc. I invested with him the second day I was here. He promised me money back within 2 weeks.

    Just write it off, better opps out there I am sure! "

    Many people here or anywhere don't get the point. Its not a big issue getting money, the issue is delivering back and keeping the premises

    To be honest I've always been up to investing in interesting ideas amounts starting from $xxx up to $xx,xxx and some of them have been very correct and truthful, the others have simply ignored me

    Now, if I lay $10,000 as an investment to someone I dont even know, for fuck sake at least have the dignity to respond. Its better saying, sorry bro I lost all of your money betting or partying with sluts rather than ignoring the ones who're trusting you

    Thanks groomsxxx for your update, I didn't even see the date and I was about to PM this guy

    Also feel your pain. I lost $2000 about a year ago with a similar JV thread. People, be careful when giving money to members with either high or low rep (rep doesn't seem to matter much when it comes to such deals).

    Post a new thread in the shit list section along with some proof and we can help you. Let him answer the accusations or just don't make them. If anyone else lost money "investing" with the OP feel free to do the same.

    I never invest with someone unless they're in the same country as me and i have they're contact info or unless its someone i have known online for a good amount of time and i can fully depend on him to deliver.

    You just handed that guy a nice bit of easy money...

    EDIT: Personally i think that BHW should have an Investment section and before the deals go live get a mod to get the contact details from the person who needs the investment. May be a bit of trouble but it should stop people getting scammed and i'm sure the mods have a strict privacy policy with personal info so there is no chance of it getting leaked etc.
