Too bad about Ruth’s money. I cannot understand why someone would invest huge amounts of money with an online company without any proof. I mean, if you think about it, if some stranger came up to you in person and asked for money saying they would double it..would you believe him? I guess not! Same principle applies here. If only people used their brains a little such scams would not even come up.

It was through an e-mail that I got victimized by the “Internet Ponzi Fraud”. In order to earn some quick bucks I kissed goodbye to my hard earned money. I was such a fool! Till date I have not been able to save up half the money that I had invested in that fraudulent scheme. It was an e-mail that triggered my interest and in a rush to double my money I had fallen prey to that scam. Till date I have not received any pay out and losing a huge amount still pinches me.
Bad experience with Internet Ponzi Fraud

Hi, I am James, working as a Public relations professional. My job is to handle public communications and to present and maintain a positive public image for my organization. I just wanted to share one of my bad experiences and make other people aware of this scam. Last year, I had become a victim of a scam called ‘Internet Ponzi Fraud’. I had invested a huge money but in return have not received anything. They promised to pack back a good amount of interest but after few months stopped crediting money into my account. They took all my personal information while submitting application for buying the investment plan. At that time, I got very depressed as a pretty mature and sensible human and also amazed that how can I get trapped with such a scam. For a few days, I was very upset because of the whole incident. I just wanted to give some suggestion so that nobody else would be victimized with this scam. Being a victim, I just wanted to advise people not to disclose while doing any online transaction and keep their personal information secure. Even if you want to do online transaction just take the owner”s name, business identity, telephone number, street address, mailing address, and business license number before you transact any amount. Some can even provide false names, telephone numbers, addresses, and business license numbers. So beware of these things while buying any investment plan over the net. At that moment, I forgot that money cannot be earned without hard work and effort, and so got ripped off.
