The only risk-free investment out there is earning ~2.45% in a savings account with FDIC insurance. Anything else that's not FDIC insured is a lie.
True. The guy that I met with was selling his idea as risk-free because he puts his own money (only half the value of your principal though IIRC) in a yeshivish sort of escrow account to 'guarantee' your investment in case it goes south, or so he claimed. I thought the whole idea sounded haphazard and sketchy, if not gezel though so even if it's guaranteed I wouldn't suggest it. We'll see if this sign is the same guy.....

@Dan If you agree to post these pieces of advice on a regular basis on DDMS, I am willing to translate it into as many languages as needed.

Having the papers stop taking the ads did not stop them at all.

Federal bonds held to maturity.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Risk of a higher yield coming out and missing it ;)

That guy is just trying to get referrals or charging for NL, nothing really nefarious about that.

opportunity risk? The ultimate opportunity risk is in an FDIC savings account.

Depends on your risk tolerance level I suppose. Not like bonds are paying more.

I should point out that after speaking to a number of victims, it's absolutely clear to me that the merchants are criminals. They are רוצחים. I don't care how many times people who worked for them say that they had good intentions. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. At the end, these people knowingly schemed and conspired to swipe millions of dollars from unsuspecting cardholders

I'm absolutely sickened by the damage this is doing. The financial toll is devastating, but that's only the beginning. There is a huge psychological toll this is taking on the victims. People are unsure what to do, where to turn to, what action to take and what will happen. Even good lawyers can only help you so much. You have parents of large families, you have kollel yungerleit, you have bochurim of shidduch age that all now face the prospect of bankruptcy.

The more I'm hearing, the more I'm starting to agree with your view. My trust level in my fellow Chareidy brethren has plummeted to near 0. Add the recent London Dayan story, whom 2 of his kids are great friends of mine, and I can't even trust Rabbi's.
