Newsletter: BestInvestmentClub and TradingBanque new prog., PipsFund Anniversary RSS - comments

BestInvestmentClubHola mis amigos!

I don’t know about you but I’m getting tired of not being on vacation. I mean, what’s up with that? Is it me or has the world turned and I’m suddenly in a “no vacation” zone? I catch myself thinking about Christmas, of all things, and I just can’t believe it’s not, like, next week.

The programs are celebrating anniversaries, new additions, new headquarters, and I’m stuck in front of my PC without any hope for a celebration. How about you, amigos? Any mid-October breaks ahead of you? I know I’m a bad person, but I really hope that you’re as stuck as me. No offence, but that’s the truth about me. Live with it.

Anyway, last week we welcomed two new programs into our money-monitor family: Best Investment Club and TradingBanque. I realize that both names sound somewhat serious and evoke some distant memories of Swiss yacht clubs and what not, so let’s check them out, shall we?




Don’t let the looks fool you: Best Investment Club Ltd. is not another Facebook page. Despite the design, it’s actually a normal website with everything you need to know about investing online. It’s not the most user-friendly page I’ve seen, but it could be a nice treat for all Forex newbies: you have the “About Forex” section, an “investing Guide” and a decent FAQ segment. The “About Us” part could be far more extensive, on the other hand, but you can read all the cliches that 90% of companies usually put in there: “Best Investment Club is a global leader in alternative investments” or “Our service to investors and merchants is based on three main principles: guarantee, stability and no risk” and “Best Investment Club provides investments to global users and payment-processing services to the European largest financial services providers, to the merchant around the corner, and to businesses of all sizes”. So, basically, they invest stuff. A slightly more informative version can be found in the FAQ section where we read that “Best Investment Club Ltd. invests in innovative markets dealing in stocks Forex, foreign exchange and investment options”.

It’s a pity that one can’t actually find any location-related information on the website. According to, the server is in the Netherlands, the domain was registered on the 30th of June 2012 and expires within a year. Maybe in some kind of exchange for not divulging their personal information, they don’t ask much about the potential member: name and e-mail address should suffice. As you can imagine, setting up an account is quick and painless, and once you’re a member (and you’re only allowed one account), you can start investing. There are three plans to choose from: Starter, Advanced and Premium Package, each lasts 20 business days (they don’t pay “on weekends and public holidays”), there is no compounding option but you can reinvest your profit (“[y]our daily income can be partially or completely added to your current deposit amount”) and cancel the plan any time you’d like. In fact, the principal is returnable as well and “you can request for fund termination anytime” but your initial deposit will be cut by 40%. The main difference between the plans is the money you need to enter: Starter takes at least $5 (up to $5,000), Advanced costs $5,001 to $10,000 and to become a Premium investor you need $10,001-100,000 and the daily profit you get: 7% for Starter, 8% for Advanced and 9% for Premium. Withdrawals start at $0.10 and the requests are processed within 24 hours. You can use Liberty Reserve, Perfect Money and EgoPay.

PipsFund One Month Anniversary RSS - comments

PipsFund has just celebrated its first anniversary and announced that there have been “over 2,500 registered members, about 1,800 active investments” and “over $60,000 in total deposits”. Due to the fact that 70% of the 2,500 registered members was reffered by somebody else, PipsFund decided to introduce a representatives system, which means that they are looking to hire representatives who will be “responsible for taking care of people with little to none experience in the online investments industry and personally guide them in the entire process”.

In case you’re interested in becoming a part of this endeavor, e-mail e-mail:, but be aware that they are interested in patient, disciplined candidates with “good people skills”, who will get “a 10% commission on [the] first level referrals, paid at the last day of every month”.

Seeing that most members come from Russia, France, Spain and Germany, PipsFund now displays the website in all those languages and, naturally, in English. Also, osTicket, “a new support ticket system” has been installed. osTicket directly assigns tickets to “one of [the] agents who will be able to solve [the] problem immediately and personally follow-up [...] requests”. That way, a ticket is easily trackable and no particular agents should be overworked.

When it comes to customer care, PipsFund also provided its members with an updated version of F.A.Q and “a new splash page” that may help in promoting PipsFund. Those who simply cannot wait for the money should know that “by the end of [the] second month online”, PipsFund “will already have some members in profit”. Keep your fingers crossed!

PipsFund Is Two Weeks Old RSS - comments

After two weeks online, PipsFund has accumulated “over $30,000 in total deposits, 1,500 registered members and over 1,000 active investments” and “over 1,100 likes” on Facebook, according to PipsFund’s latest newsletter.

In addition to this, over $850 was paid to those who referred to, which supposedly means that “at least 70% of [PipsFund’s] members were directly referred by someone”. Apart from the bragging, PipsFund has also reminded all interested parties that the minimum for the bank wire transfer option is set on $5,000 and $1,000 when it comes to the minimum withdrawal.


Newsletter: Goldenarium and Pipsfund adds, Liberty Reserve is back! RSS - comments

GoldenariumHola mis amigos!

This week I'm going to test the theory that simplicity is always the best option. No narratives this time, amigos. No complaints about the workings of the world, no sadness over the end of summer, no rambling about the scarcity of interesting news.

No, amigos, the following newsletter will be a one big positive message: no major drama took place last week.

Besides the fact that one of our newest programs decided to add some music to their page. Why would I call it drama? Because I did not expect such travesty and I left my speakers on. What a delightful surprise it was, I've got to tell you. What am I saying: you will hear it for yourselves....


It may seem that the world of online business is suffering from: a. some kind of a writer's block, b. a major domain shortage. One may say that the names of the up-and-coming programs get weirder and weirder every day. I'd like to present you with two brand new examples of the aforementioned phenomenon:

Goldenarium and PipsFund.

While I get that "Goldenarium" is a semi-suitable name for a company which deals not only with Forex business, but also invests in gold, silver, or oil, I truly hope that PipsFund ("investing in the Forex market", especially "USD/GBP fluctuations") has nothing to do with the orphan from Great Expectations or a birds' disease. What's more, when Goldenarium goes for the James Bond imagery with the guy in a tux and a drink and a golden girl in the background, PipsFund may have some more lofty aspirations which are reflected in its Tolkien-originated motto: "The greatest adventure is what lies ahead". Let's hope that doesn't mean we have to go on a trip that's going to last over a year and after which the only place suitable for us will be the land of the elves or something. However, at least PipsFund's page is not irritating.

What do I mean about that? It does not, for instance, have streaming videos that play whether you want them to or not, or music, or too many pictures and, basically, too much of everything, vide Goldenarium. Aesthetics aside, what are the programs all about, you ask?
Firstly, Goldenarium Ltd. is a London-based company (which may come as a surprise considering the bad grammar and spelling mistakes present on the page) registered in the UK ( The website was created on the 8th of March 2012 and its expiration date is the 8th of March 2015. It holds a COMODO EV SLL certificate, and also "a website identity assurance warranty of $250,000", which theoretically means that "you are insured for up to $250,000 when relying on the information provided by IdAuthority on this site".

With as little as $10 or as much as $250,000, you can invest in one of the three plans Goldenarium offers: Bronze, Silver, or Golden Plan, which should give you a daily profit of 2.45-3.5% (you can calculate your exact earnings using the calculator implemented into the website). The plans last 90 (Bronze and Silver) to 120 (Gold) business days and after that time your principal will be returned.

Once your account is set up, which shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes, you can fund it via Liberty Reserve or Perfect Money. The optional compounding is available, you can compound "any amount between 0% and 100%", and you can make multiple deposits. Withdrawals are possible starting with $1, but since they are process manually, it can last up to 24 hours. Goldenarium also offers a rather generous two-level affiliate option, namely up to 15% referral commission.

At the very first glance, PipsFund seems way less open about its roots, but it is a whois search that leaves you with the strong conviction that PipsFund founders do not want to be found (sic!). Using WhoisGuard Protected company, PipsFund managed to cover its tracks thoroughly. Maybe it was supposed to shield the staff from spammers, or maybe it's all about the privacy? Either way, one may think that at least some information regarding the company should be available to the potential members.
