Is there any risk in hyip?
« on: May 22, 2007, 08:10:06 pm »
There is risk in any business. If you can’t take risk than you can`t expect to gain either. These HYIP companies manage their investment in high risky arena and that’s why they also make high profit.

So there is always a risk of losing money which can happen with any business. That’s why it’s always best to invest such amount which you can put under risk.

A responsible investors are always trying to mininimize risk in online investments. How to do this?

At first read some basic rules before investing in HYIPs:


Never invest more than you would like to lose
Do not invest anything before you have read, read and read some more about the different programs and strategys
I recommend that you read in the forums. Preferably more than one, I read about 5 or 6.
Do not trust all monitors that much. Try to find only honest monitor services. Some admins of hyip monitors are admins of monitored hyip programs also. Huge part of monitors announcing "Paying" long after ordinary members reports "non paying".
Be aware of duplicates, scammer scripts. It is easy to set up a HYIP buying a script - all too easy. Do not trust hyip programs structured on pirated scripts.
Avoid daily paying HYIPs, or HYIPs with unrealistic returns. "25% a day for 6 days" would be a scam. Remember that Saturday and Sunday are non-trading days.
Diversify your investments - do not put all your eggs in one basket.
When you consider to join a certain HYIP, google it with "ProgramName" + scam to see if anybody has been scammed by the program, and "ProgramName" + paying to see if anybody been paid by the program.
Always base your opinion on your own Due Diligence, never base it on a single persons recommandation.
Take your pricipal out ASAP, and then invest with the house's money.
Try to choose brand new programs to invest. If the chosen program turn to be scam or ponzie you have still chance to be in profit.

The problem with most of the programs up now, is that they have no legitimate way of earning income for their depositors, they just use future deposits to pay the ROI on past deposits. The rule is that if they offer more than 10% or 12% daily you can expect that it will not last very long.

Some of these sites will tell you up front that they are hyip games, and if you lose, they are not responsible for paying you back. Many of these sites will offer up to 300% daily ROI on your deposits, and these are the riskiest, and is mostly like gambling.

This is all great advice :D

I have been active in the online money mking industry for years now, and have gained some and lost more !!!

I would also add that most HYIPs will scam eventually. Scam = stop paying.

This is because most HYIPs rely on new investors / re-investing to pay people out. You may find some which invest elsewhere, but those investments are never guaranteed, so it can be a dodgy game.

You have to treat HYIPs as a game, and never put in more than you can afford to lose.

Now, my general rule of thumb is as detailed above. I put in and withdraw as soon as possible and get my investment back asap. I will then continue to stay with a programme as long as it lasts, but only with their money, not mine.

Even doing this is no guarantee though - I've lost more than I've gained lol, as it often takes more that one "go" to earn enough from the site to reinvest their money purely.

I really appreciated your work. The point in your post is really informative. What you said about HYIP is very true. And my advice to choose a best HYIP site is when they have a good looking HYIP website templates, then it instead that they are going to run a business for a long time. So, this is one of the methods to choose a good HYIP website.

HYIP website templates are not enough to justify the quality of high yield investment website. You want to also check that website script. Which website is running with secure HYIP script that will suitable to invest your money.
