Please Invest - Potential Ponzi HYIP

You know folks, I can't browse to any HYIP or online investing site without coming across Please Invest's banners! They seem to be widly popular, but this program leaves a lot of things to be desired. The massive amount of advertising reeks of Ponziness (is that even a word - well it is now,as I've just invented it). The admin is rude and immature (not in just my opinion). Check out this reply from the administrator of this program to a recent post from a prominent member of the HYIP community (I think you will find it amusing to say the least):


my dear. I see why you have merged my thread with the current Please Invest one but I distinctly asked Jude if I could post a thread in the hyip folder for Please Invest and I was told yes. I was in no way attempting to break the rules of this forum. I don't know why you have Please Invest listed as a scam. I haven't taken anyone’s money. There is no definitive proof that I am a scam (isn't much on the other side either ).

I believe that the only reason your membership is so big is that you allow people to invest quarters.
That combined with thousands in advertising dollars has lead to Please Invest being the largest program online at this time.

Your arrogance and lack of professionalism just highlights how bad of an administrator you must be.
Arrogance? Lack of professionalism. I guess part of that is true. Unlike the other sites out there I'm not a professional scammer. I don't build a website telling you that I'm trading stocks, bonds and equities (whatever those are). I tell you nothing. If this lack of professionalism bothers you then I advise that you stick to sites run by professional con artists, not by someone who can actually make you money.

In terms of being a bad administrator, I take offence to that. If there were Oscars for best admin I would definitely win. I reply to concerns quickly despite receiving hundreds of emails each day. I peruse the forums to see how much everyone loves me. Most importantly I take the time out of my day to reply to friendly threads like this one.

Fortunately the members of this forum know Jude well enough to know that the reason your program would never make to a NoBS gemspot is because it is full of BS!!
Even if I keep paying for 2 or 3 years? Even when I outlast the current gemspots? Have an open mind. Broaden your horizons. Spread your wings and fly - try Please Invest.

Sure you can come up with comments saying that Please Invest is similar to past scams that have been on the internet. But I could say the same about nearly everything. But that is fine. In fact I encourage you to trash and bash Please Invest (That would make a good name for an anti-Please Invest demonstration: The Please Invest Trash Bash ). Anyway I would like you to review Please Invest. (Not right now we are doing a server upgrade.) Have a nice rest and then complete it later. To make it unique you are encouraged to throw in as many unproven and unsubstantiated opinions as possible. J

I didn’t notice this thread until today so I will take this opportunity to reply to all of the original posts here too.

His attitude alone is enough for me to say stay away from this idiot.
Please don’t resort to name calling.

I also believe he's going in for the kill soon - the site has been down a few mornings in a row, and one day it just won't come back...get out now!
About a month after this post was made and still here. Guess that didn’t happen.

My profit being a single dollar does not change the fact that i took it from someone else...
The person it was taken from was me.

Imagine 100 online investors judging site X is no good.. that will have an impact on the program!
Thank God that will never happen when the average hyip investor can be bought off for a $2.50 bonus. Lol

Remember he said about a friend that's about to scam loads of money? Running a new script and all? We can assume it's U-PIE, but what if it's Please-Invest?
Omg omg omg omg omg - what if its true?

I heard very different things from the man himself through MSN a few weeks ago. Well, advertising in GoldenTalk and MMG works I guess; Our HYIP Blog has his ad too, but I'm pretty sure our readers are smart enough
Smart enough to invest? Lol

Steven, sure I would. But I am not going to go around and just shout scammer here, scammer there; like Ponzi Nemesis does at Talk Gold.
Actually in my case its dogman.

You're right and I'm humbled! No more contributing to obvious scams (at least not with my usual name Seriously
That’ll definitely fix the problem you are trying to address. If you use a different name so your friends can’t berate you then the world will be saved.

No matter who is running it, I seriously doubt if they have 12,000 members. I would believe 1,200, but not 12,000. It sounds like a confidence ploy to me. Membership in HYIPs/Autosurfs have declined drastically since all the fiascos in 2006.
It is nearly 14,000 now. I can provide proof of this.

Someone on another forum said they'd heard that TG admin
That rumor is old. I stopped being Brian a while ago.

That covers pretty much everything that has been said in this entire thread. What do ya know, after typing all of that the server migration is complete and the website is back online ready for the review.

Sharon I know that you have some reservations when it comes to me and you certainly are going to have trouble accepting the Please Invest is indeed here for the long run and is not a fly by night ponzi scam. I fully understand and wouldn’t expect anything more than a luke warm review. I look forward to reading it.

Someday when Please Invest is seem as the ruling hyip dominating hyips, you Jude and I will all be the best of friends. We will sit around on a summers day on the island Jude plans on buying with his Please Invest profits, singing “Hey Jude”

♪♪♪♪Hey Jude, don’t make it bad.♪ Take a sad song and make it better.♪ Remember to let her into your heart then you can start to make it better. ♪Hey Jude, don’t be afraid, join Please Invest and enjoy the profits.♪ The minute you invest big money, I may take off ♪-♪ or you may become rich. ♪ And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude refrain don’t carry the world upon your shoulders.♪ For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool, by making his world a little colder.♪ Na♪ na ♪na ♪na ♪na ♪na - ♪Hey Jude, don’t let me down. Force Sharon, to write a cool review. ♪Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better. Etc…♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪

Please Invest Admin


Wow! What more could I say?

So In conclusion I'd advise you all to approach this one with caution! If you're looking for more tested and true HYIPs then look to your right on this blog and you'll see that I have reviews of what I consider (and not just me, but many many people) to be the best programs out there.

That's all for today...alan out! *disappears in a puff of smoke*
