The 5 ways to avoid being scammed
1) Take back your principal investment As mentioned above, when you invest in a program and receive your money back in addition with your profit, invest only the profits! When you do it this way you now have no risk in losing your money in HYIP’s, you’ll just lose your profits and nothing else. What you may also want to do is instead of investing all of your profit, invest %75 of it and keep %25 of it. That way no matter what you come out a winner. Remember take up your principal deposit and play with profits!
2) Study the website Studying a website does take some research, but it will help you in the long run. If you see a HYIP site claiming to be backed up by Forex ask them for some of there records to see if there telling you the truth or lying. Do a Whois lookup on their domain name to see if there around as long as they say, ask the admin questions, call them if a number is provided, email them and see if they respond. HYIP Scammers are always in a rush and want to get your money and leave ASAP, real HYIP admins won’t lie to you and will take the time to answer your questions truthfully, do your homework and you will be awarded! 3) Check the Interest If a program is offering more then %10 a day, it is off the back a Ponzi Scam. This does not mean do not invest with them, but it does mean that they are a ponzi and are probably running their HYIP in a game type format (when payout reaches X the next round will become) or they are relying on paying your investments with the investment of new investors. The reason I can say that if a program offers more then %10 that they are a Scam or a Game is because real professional traders can’t possibly offer returns as high as %20-50 profit per day, that is unrealistic and if they DO offer those rates they are probably running a game HYIP or ponzi HYIP. Check the Interest, you can still make money if a program is a ponzi or game but if you want a reliable program you should settle for %2-5 daily.
-Note: The same goes with referral rates, if they are large and unrealistic such as receiving %30 the program is most likely scamming/tricking you in one way or another.-
4) Don’t put all your eggs in one basket I’m sure you heard the expression “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” well this is true, especially for online investment. If you put $50 into a program, they could run off the next day, and now your left with $0. The smart thing to do is that if you have $50 is to invest $10 into 5 different programs, that way you are almost guaranteed to make some type of profit. The more diversifying the more monitoring and tracking you have to do, but the more money you make, don’t be lazy, do some work!
5) Don’t let your emotions run you over Okay so you invested $100 and received %100 profit. You have $200 and confident that you can double that you immediately reinvest it. Happily, you receive your $400 and quickly reinvest that to make $800, however for some reason you don’t get your $800, instead you get nothing, the program just ran away! Yes, that is right, don’t let emotions control you, people do crazy things when they think they could be making a lot of money, don’t invest to much money into HYIP as in the long run you will probably lose out, instead follow the rule number 1 and you should come out ahead. From reading this article you learn 5 essential tips that will help you identifying if a HYIP is a scam or not, when and if you should invest, and how to minimize your risk of losing your money. If you follow these strategies you should be making money with HYIP’s instead of losing them. Have fun and happy earning
