HYIP and Autosurfs are very risky in my opinion. Admins claim that they are putting the funds in safe, high-paying investments. But the return to the member's upgrading are unbelievable. What investment in the real world can give you a 130-200% ROI in 12 days? I did join one HYIP site and I was lucky to get back my investment. I actually earned a profit but when I re-invested it back, the site went pfffttt. I tried more sites but more bad experiences made me completely lost interest from these type of money making. An acquaintance said I can gain profit if I invest early. I followed his tip but unfortunately, two sites where I invested early closed without paying anybody. I tried another technique - the wait for the payment proof type - but got the same result. I waited for the first payment proof to be posted in a particular site before investing. On the site's 20th day, it went off line so I never got back my investment.

HYIP are very risky, but the return is great. THe trick, I believe to HYIPs are to get in early and make sure it appears to be professional. Most of them turn out to be scams but they have to build a reputation to get people to invest a lot of money into them. From what I have seen though, a lot of them are scams. Just do your research beforehand.

I've tried several of them in the past and none of them is still around. The "best" one I joined was Eurotrade, I was a member for 6 months in this long running program and actually made enough to withdraw my deposit, it gained a good reputation but in the end, ran off with all the money. I don't think there are any good HYIPs, I think it depends on Your strategy, You can make money but only if You get the timing right, wait too long and You will lose everything.
