Hi,

this year I decided to search the web for something how to make some money. Found lot of forums and sites, mosly nothing interesting. Im not lucky in casinos - never win a lot, mostly lost all :(
So i was searching for something more secuire and found investing games. Its needed to pay money and then every day i receive interest (some paying 5% per day), im playing with few of these games (with few hundred $, just to test). In investing related sites all ppl so optimistic about it and saying how much they are making, but its just few hundred ppl, I wanted to know if someone else tryed that kind of games and is it good idea to play with thousands $? I really want to double that money but will be very upset if ill lose. Any ideas?

Thanks

Sounds like fun. But at the end of the day investing is just another form of (legalised!) gambling. The only advantage is that it can involve a little more skill...well a lot actually...so if you do your homework and you are intelligent enough in the markets you can win, and of course there is no "house edge".

As long as you remember "What goes up must come down", as they say, unless you work at NASA when this isn't always logical.

Personally I'd be inclined to bet currency markets, in particular on the dollar. Looking like a good bet for an uplift ;)

Cheers

If you are talking about HYIP's (High Yield Investment Programs) my suggestion would be stay away! stay far away!! These are the programs that promise to pay you anywhere from 5% - 30% a day on your investment and almost all of them will only use e-gold to fund the accounts. These programs never provide names, addresses, phone numbers or any other information about their operation except that they invest in forex markets (foreign exchage) and things like this. They want you to just deposit your money via e-gold and then expect to get your interest every month, and most of them do not have a members webpage where you can view your account balance. I have been following these programs for quite sometime and I can say that 99% are a ripoff scam and I have watched them all fold and the website go down. What they do is get investors in the beginning, who are most likely to deposit the minimum of $20 - $50 just to try it out. They are able to pay the 5% - 30% using new money coming into the program from other investors (there are no investments being made) and when people are all pumped up and excited because they are getting the interest on the small deposit they report that the program is 'good' and 'paying' on the various HYIP forums on the net. This gets the investors to deposit more money in the program. Shortly after they are shocked to go to the website for the program only to find an 'under construction' or 'site is down for maintenance' message. They are all pretty much scams. Stay away from HYIP's especially if they promise you 5% - 30% a day which is impossible even if they were trading in forex.

Thanks for your suggestion. Yes I mean that kind of games, but I didnt call them High Yield Investment, because these online programs are not licensed company.
If 99% of hyip games are scams, does it mean that 99% I will lose or is it posible to win? Any way i dont like that word "scam" - when you play and win its ok but if you loose why to call it scam?
Can you recommend something better then casinos and investament games, where i could double my money fast with minimal risk and almoust no work?

I say scam because they are scams. They set up to get investors to give them their money and then they shut down the website and STEAL the money, making them scammers. When you lose money in these programs it is because the operator has stolen the money. If you put your money in a casino and you place a bet on Blackjack, and the dealer gets 21 while you get 18 you have lost your money on a legitimate bet. If you put your money in a casino and then the next day you try to log into your casino account and cannot, only to find out that the casino has closed and the operators have dissapeared then you have been scammed, or ripped off. This is the same as what I meant when I explained about the HYIP programs. These programs are not set up as games, the people who run the programs are giving the impression that this is a legitimate investment in forex or other investment vehicle, and not a game. As far as doubling your money, it depends on what time frame you are talking about. Do you want to double your money in a few days, or weeks or would you like to double it over the course of a year? I can PM you with the link to an investment company that has posted returns of 80% - 100% per year. It is called Feeder Fund and is 100% legitimate. Let me know and I will send you the URL.

I'm also interested in investing money (just some casino winnings, not too much).
Maybe you could share with me a few good places with reading material and the url of Feeder Fund and other similar things.

According to last Saturday's Financial Times, Bill Gates is betting on the dollar to fall. We'll see who is right. :)

Or there could be some tactical misinformation going on over there for fun and profit....!

Interesting thread - it's stimulating to interact with the wide cross section of experience and talent that is present on this forum.
