Ponzi Scheme sounds to good to be true

Updated on May 7, 2012

Ponzi Schemes sounds to good to be true

Ponzi Schemes sounds to good to be true. If it sounds to good to be true , then it is. You cant get nothing for nothing today. Beware of up front fees. Never send money to anyone you don't know. Do your research. Call the Better Business Bureau. Do your own search. Google the company or companies asking you for money or information. DON'T BE A VICTIM. Never give out your social security number over the phone. Even to someone you know. This is FRAUD.

My Fiance is dealing with a ponzi scheme right now. He put monies up about a year ago. He got some monies back. Just enough to keep him waiting a little longer. The guy kept telling him the money would be here next week. Next week never came. Hes still waiting. Hes in the process of calling all the goverment agencyies involved. The Federal Trade Commission, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Central Intelligence Agency, and The Attorney Generals office out of Washington DC. My Fiance'e got involved with putting money up for a big return. The return that never came. No more waiting around. Hes now in acting his right as a US citizen, to put a stop to people like this and others involved. Until this day this man has not proven that hes not a ponzi scheme. We are writting this to help others not to become victims of these kinds of people. We got this flyer in the mail today about fraud we are passing it along to you.

    Thanks paree for your comment. There are many frauds in my country as well. Fraudsters are everywhere. If we do our home work, and do our checks, on these people first, we would never invest. Yes greed is bad. Greed destroys lives. There are companies out there, who are good companies. They are few and far between. That was a lot of money to lose. So sad.

    I wish everyone luck. I hope they prosecute those scams.

    Happy New Year.
