iYogi Fraud Protection: iYogi Alert - Ponzi Fraud – Forget high returns, you will lose even the principle here
iYogi, the fastest growing provider of remote technical support services for computer related issues, alerts its customers from time to time against the prevailing online scams and frauds. Ponzi Fraud is one such fraud against which iYogi want to alert you. In this fraud, common people are informed about an investment scheme by which they can yield “high returns”. In fact, what they get is nothing. The innocent or ignorant people end up losing even the money they have invested. The administrators of such schemes will keep on promising you high returns until a large number of people become members of their scheme, and then suddenly they will vanish. iYogi recommends that you shouldÂ not invest in any such schemes of which you are not sure about. You must always be cautious while responding to such special investment offers that guarantee unrealistic returns. more...
