Hola mis amigos!
People would go to extreme lengths just to be original. Yes, that’s not an original thought, but if the hipster movement has taught me anything it’s that even attempting originality might be a “thing”.
Despite what you may think right now, I’m not going to write about the scarves and oh-so-too-tight jeans, but – as usual – about yet another addition to the list of Internet money making programs. And the reason I began my review in the manner I did is because I firmly believe that sometimes the simple way is the best way. And that really applies to company names.
Our today’s protagonist is a gold “adult male horse that has not been castrated especially one kept for breeding” LTD. It’s not a joke, mis amigos, that’s the name of the program. OK, I’m exaggerating a bit: it’s actually StallionGold LTD, but you get my point. In the FAQ section of StallionGold’s website, one may read that the reasoning behind the name was a “natural analogy” that would “reflect the essence of our venture in its name”. The “stallion” part was supposed to mean that the “company as a whole, [the] trading strategies, the business relations and [the] forward looking business plan are naturally powerful and perhaps even ingenious” and that’s how the creators of StallionGold came up with the image of a not-yet-castrated male horse. I guess some feminists would call that sexists, some guys would shudder at the thought of castration, and some western lovers would immediately think of wild stallion roaming the hills. Or, just like StallionGold’s creators, would think about the “beauty, speed, responsibilities within the herd, some socially responsible aggressiveness”. I’m thinking about the smell of the stables. But that’s just me, amigos.
Although it may seem that StallionGold is an insatiable beast with no known address, StallionGold LTD. is actually registered in Dominica. The company went online just a couple of months ago, but supposedly they have already been around for 5 years. One cannot find out much about the domain itself since it’s “WhoIsGuardProtected”, but what is known is that it was created on the 17th of July 2009 and expires on the 17th of July 2017, which should give the stallion a lot of time to be as “naturally powerful” as he pleases.
The company’s motto, “Making the prosperity possible”, sounds promising so I think it’s time to check what they mean by that. Naturally first you need to sign up (there is one account per person) and that shouldn’t take long: all they want from you is to choose a username, password, and a PIN code. Once you’re in you can fund your account, which by default is in US dollars, using either Liberty Reserve, Perfect Money or EgoPay. The minimum to invest is $1 and there’s “practically no maximum”.
What do you invest in, amigos? Precious metals, namely gold and silver. Is there something that you should know about StallionGold’s investment plans, you ask? In spite of the fact that StallionGold reportedly has a team of "advanced, progressively thinking professionals" who possess “exceptional knowledge in the field of alternative investments” and employ "highly innovative in its essence", the investment plans are hardly innovative. For 100 business days (no profit during weekends and “select national holidays” – it’s unclear, however, which nation does this refer to? Dominica?) you earn 1.5-4% a day, depending on the amount you invested. What’s innovative about this plan may be the fact that, first of all, all plans are valid for 100 business days “only” and that if you want to stick with StallionGold after that time “"new investment or principal re-investment will be required".
The biggest novelty, however, would be the “4 stages principal return” idea, which basically means that after 25 days you automatically get “1/4 of the current deposit amount to [your] account balance”, so you can think of it as a somewhat-returnable-principal. Moreover, “[c]lients may then either request a withdrawal of the portion of their principal, or reinvest it, thus creating new, fully qualifying deposit".
Other than that, everything seems pretty straightforward: withdrawals start at $0.01, you can change your main currency to Euro or Gold Oz ("the option to choose currency equivalent is available at the time of deposit creation and it does not depend on the deposit method used by the user"), the payment method is instant, and there is the option of compounding. Still, what you should bear in mind is that although you can hold your investments in more than one currency, "total account's principal amount is automatically recalculated by the system daily in relation to the US Dollars". To add to this, there is a “multi-currency mode”, which means that the deposited amount will be “automatically split into three equal parts at the time of deposit". When it comes to compounding details, while this option is available regardless of the investment plan you chose, and it can be set whenever you want, the compounding rate defined by the investor "will be applied for the entire invested amount on the account and not for any of the separately created deposits".
Since we’re more or less done with the StallionGold’s money section, let’s take a look at the service itself. To begin with, the design of the page is amazingly basic. Provided that the website has been online for some time now, it desperately needs some major TLC. It seems secure enough (a standard SSL COMODO Certificate) and it supposedly has some “unique custom made software”, but a painless cosmetic surgery isn’t a bad idea, I’d say. The support system is easy and rather exhaustive: there’s the address, the phone number (001-6097-STGOLD), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a ticket system. The answers shouldn’t take more than 24 hours, and – just in case – there’s always the Facebook and Twitter page as an additional way of contacting “The Stallion”. If it’s not running wild in the forest or something...
For those who are still undecided if betting on a wild horse is a good idea: becoming a part of the three-level affiliate program (1-8%) does not cost a thing, having an account will suffice.
All in all, mis amigos, I just can’t resist, I have to ask: are you ready to get back on the “adult male not yet castrated” horse? Think about the answer...
