There are many scammers around here and I wonder why in spite of being publicized as a scam, some people still fall victim to the high-yield investment scams. The scheme is that you will earn 10% of your investment every week (some others say every 2 weeks). They will pay you the first 2 interests so you think it is true and you tend to put in more investment. When that happens, the interest would stop coming and the investment broker will vanish. Be careful of such schemes. The rule of thumb - it is a scam when it is too good to be true.
