Here are the signs to watch out for with HYIPs

Here are the signs to watch out for with HYIPs (and can be applied to some scam SURFs), events usually proceed in the following manner:

  • The Admin announces that suddenly they are experiencing a DDOS attack and/or
  • The Admin adds new plans (because he needs more money coming in before he runs), especially plans in the upper stratosphere to get the BIG bucks in with a large daily ROI (I've seen this over and over and over) and/or
  • The Admin creates new promotions in order to get more money in (you know, prizes and such).
  • For some odd reason payments stay long in PENDING status, more than what is usual in the past, or rules are changed from say from 24 hrs to pay to 2-3 business days or to even 7 to 9 business days. Red flags!
  • Admin pays out selectively. Small payments. To monitors and bloggers to keep them happy and unsuspecting.
  • There is a server crash or payments stop and Admin is gone! Folks in forums complain, specutate, bitch, to no avail.
  • Detractors are fed upon with a frenzy... and in time folks start to wake up to the fact that ... Admin is gone, site is gone, they have lost.
  • Finally the various forums like MMG, CIF, ASA, move that thread to the scam/closed area.
  • Admin opens a new HYIP or SURF, and the cycle begins again. So there you go!
