An autosurfing or hyip is a type of online investment where you pay a certain amount, and you get a variable return on your investment. Since it is online, many of the investment programs are scams. In this article, you will find strategies and techniques in not only investing in your money, but finding the legitimate ones.
The online business (E-commerce) has been growing at an exponential rate. Ranging from forex, online gambling, adsense, to different sorts of online investment programs. Online investment programs especially seem to be getting popular because they offer a high return on your investment.
Since individual and unofficial webmasters can create these online investment programs with a simple script, it is extremely easy to scam(to steal) investors’ investments. 9 out of every 10 investment programs do not work, and end up not paying.
If you are going to invest in an investment program, you need to know whether it is legitimate or not. Make sure you always invest smart in a program you have investigated. First off, take a good look at the website. Is it clean? Is it so simple that a newbie could have made it? Take a look in the contact area: are there phone numbers and an address listed? Is it often updated? Looking for these simple aspects usually provide a first sense of legitimacy, even though they should not be the only information you should be looking for. Forums are the best place to look when researching an investment program. Not only do they provide details about the program, but there are everyday investors like yourself that can provide results and data. Forums usually are trustworthy due to the realistic results of actual investors. However, there are some obstacles one can face with forums. Investment programs can secretly pay “cheerleaders”, people who pretend that they had successful results with the program, and thus provide fake results. To avoid this, look for investment programs that have large amounts of successful results, canceling out the fake ones.
Additionally, there are investment program monitors who get paid to advertise the program. Usually, the monitors give clean results, where the monitor shows whether the investment program is paying the monitor or not. However, unlike forums, monitors have a bigger loophole. Investment programs choose who to pay. With this in mind, investment programs can choose only to pay the monitors, but not pay the actual investors. Its a win situation for the investment programs because they receive more investors which they won’t pay, a win situation for the monitor because the investment programs will always definitely pay the monitors, but a lose situation for the actual investors. In this light, its not always a good idea to trust monitors. Another nifty little tool is http://whois.domaintools.com where you can lookup the webmasters details including phone numbers and addresses. Calling the phone numbers and mailing the addresses is a simple test of legitimacy. Call the phone number, and ask if he/she is the creator of the investment program. Many people have tried calling the phone numbers of webmasters, yet to receive a person who has no relation whatsoever.
Overall, even when the results are both positive from investors and monitors, and the layout looks clean, there is still the possibility of a scam.
All investment programs eventually are scams. It is unknown to me that any serious investment. program has lasted over 1-2 years. With this in mind, try to withdraw your principle as fast as possible. Never play with your principle, always your profits. This way, even if the investment program turns into a scam, you have not lost any money. Compounding may seem seductive, but its always safer and smarter to compound with your profits. Additionally, learn to diversify with different investment programs. Never invest all your eggs in one basket; instead, learn to profit with many eggs in many baskets. This way, if one investment program fails, you still have many others.
