I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Investment Scams and Frauds. Any difference? Just Repeating In New Forms!

Read? Police warn of fake website claiming to help FTX investors withdraw crypto funds

Any difference?

According to the police, the fake website is supposedly hosted by the US Department of Justice and prompts FTX customers to log in to the website with their account details.

It would then claim that customers "would be able to withdraw their funds after paying legal fees".

Real People. Real Losses

The Agency subsequently also disappeared.

  1. Uncle8888,

    Human nature never changes. Probably similar scammers & scavengers since caveman time. Future will have Mars & outer space investing scams lol.

    1. Psst.

      You interested to invest in properties on the Moon?

      First mover advantage.

      And if you can rope in your friends and relatives, I'll give you a cut of the profits. Wink, wink.

      Scammers and snake oils use the same trick - it's all about knowing what buttons to press.

      People with "holes-in-their-hearts" are the easiest to "target".

  2. Con job also has short or long term con. Madoff is super long term con job.
