Forex and other money scams... have you seen them?

Hi everyone,

thought you guys can shed some light on the topic as I got lost figuring out what is what.

I used to run a few more or less successfull Internet projects in the past... which allowed me to spend time fishing - this is my old time favorite :)

But now it seems either I lost the track of things on the Internet or grew too old (lol) for this... so I thought of some Forex stuff... and got scammed by a site that I won't mention here to not make the bastards public.

Being ripped of isn't kind of thing I like, so before diving deeper I thought maybe some of you have had experience that you can share with me... maybe some strategies sites that work (and you PERSONALLY tested they work)...

So if there's anything you know and can recommend, that'll be *much* appreciated :)

Would you mind dropping your 2 cents mates? :)

Johnny

I thought Forex was a brand of condom.
No?

Is it just me, or does 'lol' also sound juvenile to you?

Forex is a scam. The only "strategy" is to run a forex company and take suckers for all they got. There is one near where I live, and they are continually parking their honking great F650 pickemups near where I live, and they have several in every color.

The only alternative winning strategy is to keep your money to yourself. If you *want* to dabble in it, and by dabble, I mean spend less than 90 hours/week doing research, it would be less costly to put a bushel of $100 bills in your driveway and set them on fire.

Oh, so I'm probably going to lose my ass on those yen.

So Forex == scam?

That seems just a touch isolationist/xenophobic. Other people have money too, etc..

Or is it just a large number of online scam type sites masquerading as legitimate Forex brokerages and such?

Yeah. Sure. Nobody makes any money on that stuff. Except the millionaires.

"spend time fishing"

"diving deeper"

and the link to a fishing site => google spam

..

Interesting.  Plant key words in what looks like a legit post --but with words that are actually referring to something else not in context but related to your user link.

In a casino, the house always makes money. Some of the "customers" do, most don't.

XXXX is allegedly a beer, "spelt that way because we can't spell beer".

Total scam and ripoff. Mind you, Fosters is worse.

and obviously developing their famous "fucking near water" theme. Pigtails. Sheep. A creek.

What more could a XXXX drinker want.

On topic -  buy and hold Swiss francs. No need to daytrade.

Funniest moments in a Forex room was at close of trade as everybody tried to get set for the evening. Anything over 1% overnight was cause for shouting the team afterwards.

Indeed (tho' very weak at the moment).

> No need to daytrade.

Indeed not. Well, not if you are paid in them, anyway :-)
