Invest with us for more than 100% return? - So why do they need your money then? - Thats the question i always ask myself when i hear of similar things.

do investors do no research at all?  at that rate of return i'd be wanting to see the company accounts.  i'd be checking with companies house that they are who they say they are.  i'd want to know more about their track record.  people let themselves be dazzled by the possibilities and chuck their common sense out the window.
