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.

What is “the London Dayan story”? A related swiping scheme in England?

What does he need your cash for?

He needs your name and email address (no ssn DOB though, and prob not even an address) to open an account. This particular 'investment' has a max investment of $10k pp, so essentially he's running a farm of sorts. Doing it for lots of people and taking a cut.

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.

You do know that the world is bigger than the FDIC? There are other Federal Banks in the world that protect CD style accounts. Australia NZ for one have some high rate products now.

FDIC*
*Or comparable.

Better now? Any way for American to take advantage of others online?

Risk of a higher yield coming out and missing it ;)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Yet the USD being the worst currency (with the exception of all others) is still the reserve currency of the world.

Saw this hanging up around the Mir today.
Anyway know what this is all about.
Another scam or it legit?

Massive dividends,  100% risk free = 1000% scam.

A low risk investment would be betting that it's a scam.  I'm taking bets.

People are only human. Everyone lost faith in Dovid Hamelech yet he emerged perhaps even greater than he ever was before. In this generation we are quick to write people off. Great tannaim and amoraim had personal failures yet were towering spiritual giants.

I agree that the whole frum world shouldn’t take the blame for a few sickos.

We must, however, keep in mind that nobody is beyond corruption. Money is a major corruptor. It can turn friends and family into bitter enemies. Never trust that someone will “do the right thing” with your money just because they shuckle extra hard while davening.

I’m never shocked or appalled whenever there’s a scandal involving a rabbi and women. We all have taivos and there’s a reason yichud is assur for everyone, whether they’re a rosh yeshiva or not. To say “how could a rabbi do...” is the same as saying rabbis aren’t human, they’re malachim.

Let's not compare anyone or anything to Dovid hamelech.. not sure what you mean by great tanaim having "personal failures" either  כל האומר... חטא אינו אלא טועה
