I have a little bit of a story to tell. A couple of weeks ago an engineer friend of mine rang me (he's working for woodside, clued on fellow). During our discussion he mentioned that his boss dragged him along to a seminar (I wont mention the company/system). Yeah my old scam injury became inflamed right away and I had to sit down.
He said his boss was reaping 6% per month and he explained to me the in's and out's of the system. It sounded half viable so I decided to do some research. I found HEAPS of positive blogs and comments on the system. I also found a couple of other companies with similar systems. All of them talking about different strategies and things to use.
That's when I stumbled across this forum. I found two threads on the company and it was great to see one of the admins here taking apart an obvious spammer posing as a customer. I was almost willing to invest my hard earned $$ in this system. My main aim was to use it to learn how to trade and then ween myself off it. However, because of their spamming efforts its quite obvious they are not really that sincere.
Quite obviously everyone on this forum is going to tell me the same thing. Get some books, read the internet, educate yourself. I can respect that, and trust me that's what I am trying to do. If I was not doing that I would have shelled out around 6k already.
Its so hard to find clear, concise information. Especially for a beginner. I've had a flick through the beginners forum but even some of the well presented information has me thinking in circles (I'll be the first to admit I aint all that bright).
So my first step in trying to secure my future and invest wisely is to register here. Introduce myself and hopefully learn a thing or two of you guys.
I'm in quite a well paying job and think I am going okay in life at the moment (got two houses which I am paying the bank for). I just think I could get my money working harder for me. Maybe get rid of some toys and invest in the future.
So I just wanted to say thanks for leaving the thread up that let me see what was going on.
