    Re: To good to be true

    There are some really cute 25 yr old Swedish honeys emailing me --- can't wait until one fies in to see me!
    You wouldn't believe it but I won 8 million £ in a free lottery in the UK. Got a text. Just gotta fill out a few forms and Helga and I won't have a thing to worry about.

    Decided to Honeymoon in Nigeria.
    The Countries Financial Administrator needs a hand getting 45 million $US out of the country.
    Only needs my bank account details and I get a quick 10 %

    Then just my luck
    I get around 30 emails a day from these guys who guarantee the stock they are in is going to rise in price 600 %
    so plan is to find the stock code with the most common code ---- often there are 10 different emails alerting me to the one stock--- and put a few $100k that I've got for doing very little into it. My family are set for life.
    Work---your kidding!

    Life is so so good.
    People are so so generous.
    The world just keeps getting better.
    ALL my friends are getting the same run of luck!

    Yeh, amazing opportunities out there...

    I've won the Irish lotto 4 or 5 times. Can't remember entering it but who cares. Haven't claimed it yet though, I might wait until I win it 10 times so that I save on postage.

    Sorry everybody I didn't mean it to go this way.It was only a simple question maybee to save a lot of pain .I dont have anything to do with this company.My thoughts were maybee someone here knew something about this mob.I'm not investing with them,but if it is a scam and you knew about it ,you can warn people about it.Beacuse they still operating the investing thing here in town.We are talking about normal hard working people maybee getting burnt (some close friends)to me.Thanks Stefan

    One look at their website was enough to convince me, Stephan1, if your friends are 'donating' their money to this scam they probably deserve to lose it. Harsh, but true.

    NEVER ... take investing advise from a friend or relative i.e my brother in law suggests we should blah blah blah.

    If you understand the company and know how it all works yourself so much that you can explain it well to someone then perhaps back yourself if you think it will do well, without anyone else in your ear saying it will. Otherwise, you are making a simple and fundamental mistake.

    There is a simple adage which applies not only to shares and investment products.

    Know exactly what it is that you are buying.

    Well they know EXACTLY what they are selling
    And it's NOT a business.

    It's " FANTASTIC RETURNS "

    --- beautiful women--- untold riches ---- easy money.

    Common theme.

    The simple reason why you asked about it in here means you've already answered your last question .... you knew something dodge so that's why you asked.

    Your gut feeling is your biggest asset along with common sense. If it were so great many would be doing it ... and if everyone was doing it then, the value would be minimal.

    Got bored on a Friday night so thought I'd entertain myself by googling **** ****** and alan metcalfe.
    Here are a couple of links including a 2008 youtube interview of Alan Metcalfe promising that Safe worlds IPTV will be released in a few months. 5 years later and you're still waiting?
    http://safeworlds.net/
    http://www.zoominfo.com/p/Alan-Metcalfe/521108298
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFypumMWuNo
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRs940g1j1Y
    The youtube interview is in 2 parts - both as pointless as the other.
    Make up your owned informed decision - Universal Logic - seems to be the "secret" patented technology behind **** ****** IPTV. It's based on the Bible.
    I'm a Christian and I HATE it when these religious kooks start to use their beliefs to con people out of money. I won't get on my soapbox but I think you get the point. And yes - I think it is a scam. You will never see your money again.
