I know what most of you are thinking right now. "It's a scam." Right? The truth of the matter is, that it is not a scam. It also does not happen overnight. But within 1.5 months you start receiving your money back plus 100% more. You receive 1-2 payments a month until you are paid in full. Kind of crazy the way it works but it does. Anyway, most of you know me that I would not lie about such things. First of all what was your immediate thought to my discussion? Secondly on a scale of 1 to 10 how likely would you be able and or willing to look into this? Let me know what you think.

Ever since I first saw your 'double-your-money' project mentioned I have been interested. I have not got such a large sum but am prepared to invest a smaller amount of my online earnings in this venture. I have two reasons for doing so. The first that it is all 'free' money that I have earnt online so far and secondly I know where I can find you. If it were someone I did not know suggesting the same thing I would not have gone on reading further than the title.

My first reaction is to say that probably most of the people who post on here do not have $6000 to invest in anything - especially something that could be a scam.

That is my point exactly. People here, although absolutly wonderful, are rather stuck in a nickle and dime mentality. My purpose was to see how people react. To hopefully get us to dream bigger and think that anything is possible. Thanks for your response.

Don't forget to add bigger nightmares ... that too is a possibility since it is a risk even if legit. Right? Sorry but if I make it big one day than $6000 would seem as a nickel or a dime. Right now the nickel and dime mentality is all my wallet can handle. Its nice to have big dreams that someday you can have as a goal but I would stick to reality until I can make my dreams come true.

IF I were to have $6000 to invest, I would not be investing it in something that I would consider to be a high risk. Since we live on a farm, I would probably invest in some good quality livestock.

I am skeptical of anything that tells me I can double my investment, but that is just the way I am. Too cautious probably which is why I will never get anywhere on the money side of things LOL. I have not got that sort of money, but probably would not put it into something like that even if I did. My hubby probably would he is more the gambler and the risk taker.

It is a huge amount of money for most people. To some that would be a 3rd of a years wages. That is why I ALWAYS tell people NEVER risk more than you are willing to loose. One should not go into debt in order gain unless they are willing to loose that money.

Ya know, if I had that money and more, I would invest on something like that. Seeing as mysdianait has something positive to say about you, there's a good chance I might go for it. I have actually thought about this a day ago - how I wanted to get out of the nickel and dime mentality as you say. It's not "earning money" if you can't win it big. That's just what I think. I'm looking for ways but I have to know it's something I can connect with.

Nice to meet you jolie. Very good view. it is good to meet a friend of Mysdianait. As I have discussed with her there are lower options as well. I put the big number here because that makes for a better discussion. :) If you are interested in knowing more let me know. I can set up a chat if you want to sometime.

Well it does cast a doubt unless you can give an irrevocable proof of that kind of investment with that much return. I mean we're talking of a huge sum and with that a huge risk. Care to explain it's mechanism or a glimpse of it's financing structure?

At first glance, I'm a bit skeptical with that matter. Well, that's understandable since a big amount of money is involved. And it's really not easy to find such an amount. I will probably try that if my friends have tried as well and succeeded.

So you would fall in the catagory of the "Third person investor"? Not saying that is wrong. All that means is that you, according to your response, are one that must see to believe. Let someone else risk and then I may get in. There are pros and cons to that. The pros are that you can be assured that the program did work. Less of a risk. more assumed security. Cons, always waiting for someone else to be successful before you become that way. Sometimes an opportunity is missed because of waiting. Overall, I understand completely your position. In online business that is a very good stance to take. Of coarse if everyone took that stance then no one would ever invest and there would never be the "Third person investor" :)

I have always heard that if you have to pay money to join a program, then it is probably a scam, especially if the investment is $100's or $1000's. The only program out of over 100 I'm in that I pay for is only $10 a month to participate in. On a scale of 1 to 10, I pick 0, yes 0. I absolutely wouldn't consider doing this!

Runningman, in online business it is difficult to trust those behind the site. However I believe that it is premature to automatically label something a scam based on the startup cost. Of coarse if someone does not have that kind of money then it is a non issue. :)

$6000!!! I know I don't have $6000 to tie up whether it is legit or not. On a scale from 1-10 I would have to rate it 1 for myself. For one it is too risky even if it is legit. Even in the stock market the greater the risk the higher the return. Then of course there are the taxes you have to pay on your unearned income for those of us in the USA so when you take all that into account you are risking more than you think you will be making assuming it is sustainable and will be there when it is your turn to cash out.

Of coarse in this program you don't cash out. I simply pay you until you have received it all. Yes, taxes can take some of the money, that is why it is doubled. Taxes will be approx 10-15%. Yes $6000 is a high amount. The program actually starts with as little as $6.00. But that wouldn't have made for a very good discussion. :)

Yes, I understand your fear. Too many "legit" programs that you don't know who is real and who is not. That is why I have decided to be in the open so people can actually talk to me. The site that I run people know they can get a hold of the owner and not just a ticket system of email. Thanks for the response.

$ 1 or 2 OK, this much big amount somebody asks means surely a scam. Nobody may like that idea until they get that money free from the road (I doubt that also). Money is precious sir.

Truely it is not a scam, but I do understand your sceptisism. I would feel the same way. Unless I had built a trust with that person or company. I.e. I have no problem investing in the company I work for. 10's of thousands of dollars even. Why? because I can trust them. I do know there is a risk but at the same time I have developed that trust. Thanks for the response

i've already heard about such thing and i do not believe it was true i think it sill just a scam. this is almost impossible simple doing some things in net. anyway i've heard about one that really can work the one you pay 2$ and then re-write in any other forum or site one list and this continue 'till... but to this work everybody need to pay 2$ and this is the problem find people that really pay for. well, i suggest if you have heard this in any site to don't use it. it is almost sure one kind of scam. thanks, Scorpionok.

That is what I figured most would say. To invest in something or someone like that ecspecially that large of an amount it requires trust. Since you do not know me you cannot make an informed decision. However, if you knew me and knew that what I sai was the truth would that change anything? Pastor G

To see is to believe I'd say.I've come across something like this which I unfortunately joined.Well, I said unfortunate so you guessed it right.My money vanished into thin air. It would be good if there is a truly credible system such as the one mentioned.:)

It would be nice if there is a good and honest site...even better if you can start with a small investment.

If you read my comments from above you will see that a small investment is also offered.

Well, first off I would be put off by the amount of the investment. Even if this is something legitimate, investing has its risks, and I wouldn't feel comfortable putting that many eggs into one basket so to speak. Second, I would be wary of this, because not only did you have to mention that you wouldn't lie about such things (if this was a true opportunity, you wouldn't have to mention that) but you didn't explain the process in which I would be earning double my money back. You even go as far as to say that its kinda crazy the way it works, but it does. What kind of explanation is that. Finally, you mention no company name or information. In the end, I would have to say that this opportunity would be rated a 1 in my book. Had I come across it, I would not give it a second look.

Very well put. You have given the best answer so far. Someone willing to think through an opportunity. Although the opportunity is true, the initial investment was exagerated to make the discussion a bit more interesting. thank for the response.

It sounds like it might work for those who have that kind of money, but what is it and what kind of company is it that you would even have to invest that kind of money in to begin with , I mean wow that is a lot of money for some of us to even think about coming up with. But good luck to those that can afford that kind of investment. No such money in this household.

Most people want to start earning with free sites. Some other are requiring 1$ to join and surely as promised they'll get the return which is more than 5 times the amount they invested but even with that little amount people are in doubt to join and try the program. How much more with 6000$, that is a huge amount. If you would like to know my opinion, well, I think it's a scam.
