Everything about ScamDecember 23, 2014 в 10:13
Closing of a HYIP project always causes a storm of emotions and indignation to founders. Of course, quite often unjust accusation goes to simple participants who were engaged in advertizing and attraction of people in this or that HYIP project. Certainly, it is not always fair; however it is normal reaction for loss of investments. The similar situation is called Scam.
The Internet gives us accurate and unequivocal interpretation of this term. Scam is the Internet-swindle that aims to get illegal benefit, in the form of money, or users' information. Extend among financial pyramids, matrixes, various "invest-funds" and partner programs; scam always is the result of similar systems.
But what forces administration to Scam? The answer is ambiguous from point of view of logic and situation. Most obvious and "popular" reason of scam is reaching of a certain sum that accumulated the project and which satisfied the founder of the project, and then goes closing of the HYIP. As a rule, it occurred unexpectedly while people suspect nothing (otherwise it can "frighten off" investors and lose big share of money). Basic symptoms of scam: bad link when you can't enter the site, a non-working private office, no possibility to withdraw money, but you still can deposit (the administrator exclude the option of withdrawal). In some projects the administrations meaningly inform their clients that they are have to close the project, sometimes without announcement of the reason. Anyway, it is impossible to be ready for scam. You can't read thoughts and intentions of administration, as well as duration of their work.
Usually, average lifetime depends on level of profitableness which it can give. If we speak about, so-called, fast-projects, where profit is 61% in a month, though in practice it could be 100% and 150% in a day, then lifetime fluctuated from couple of days or couple of months, depending on intentions of the owner and potential of the project. The intermediate term projects, which profitableness varied in the area from 15% to 60%, could exist much more long, as a rule 3-6 months, though quite often you can find "long-livers" which could work from a year and more. The most stable projects are low-profitable, 5-10% in a month; such projects can stably work for years, expecting the hour when the administrator will decide that time has come.
But if you think, that all founders of HYIP projects are frauds which dream to "set up" trustful clients you are partly right. Certainly, the area of pseudo-investments is not absolutely legal activity, therefore to leave this water absolutely pure is impossible, and however motives for creation of such projects could be quite friendly. There are enough examples of how administrations of projects were open as much as possible for the investors and at any situation behaved correctly, providing inflow and payment on all obligations, even then, when, apparently, large sum gathered and it is possible to "close" already. And even at obvious problems, their policy was to remain open and fair in relation to clients. In a closing-time of the project (the end is always the same), many founders try return deposits to a considerable quantity of people (and to leave some for themselves). This policy bear fruit, after all reputation is a profitable thing and many investors, who earned (and not), already found out about reliability of administration and their relative honesty. As result - bigger expectations from new project and bigger investments in HYIP. Such variant is the best for both sides’ investors and administration. And in spite of the fact that HYIPs can't exist eternally and scam is unequivocal and inevitable, for one it is reliable way to earn (or at least not to lose the money), and for others, it is new possibility to get more that they had earlier.
