At the peak of the HYIP industry, I used to participate on it a lot, especially since Liberty Reserve was still available for use back then. Of course, I knew that the majority of this industry was a scam and that it was risky to say the least. However, I found it very fun as well, since I had to research each site I was looking into "investing" in, and I saw it more as gambling or a game than actual investing, really, so I was never going into it with any false pretenses so I was able to have fun with it. By the end, I came out with less than $100 profit, which I considered myself lucky for, since I'm guessing not everyone was as fortunate with joining these sites and might have even came out of it with a loss. I'm now looking into joining these sites again for fun, just hopefully I can find another convenient payment processor that would lend itself well to sites like these. Do you have experience with HYIPs, and what did you think of it?
