I am sort of new to investing and stuff, and I kind of started on it and got burned right away, although I did not fall for the "Sting," but it got me thinking and so I figured I better join some forums and listen to people smarter than me. This particular case involved a currency fluctuations concept, and I guess, in and by itself, a decent proposition. However, I was lured into it with a small initial investment, which then had to be backed up with a more massive chunk of money. Which, up until this point, was ok, except for one thing; the money had to be sent to them upfront! Immediately I am thinking, Nigerian Letters, so of course, I wouldn't spend a penny on these guys. And I asked for my initial capital to be sent back to me, and they said that since I did not send them the more considerable sum, my initial investment was forfeited. Naturally, this proved the point, I was dealing with crooks, and I am really glad that I did not send any additional funds to these swindlers. A London based company, too.
