Even if it wasn't a scam and you'd be able to make all your money back, one has to ask if this is yosher.

When people go up to shamayim, hashem is going to call a lot of us navul b'rushut ha'torah (including myself probably).
if its not a scam and you make all your money, whats not yosher about it? you might be a  navul b'rushut ha'torah but what does it have to do with the above?

never trust anyone who doesn't know how to spell "diligence".

Or who doesn't know where to put the period when using quotations.

I've been advising all of the yeshivas here in Israel to invest heavily in this. No need for Lapid when there's easy money this way.

Or an American imperialist who doesn't understand that other people do things differently.

My .02 re periods:  one or two words--period outside of quotations, longer phrase or sentence--period within quotations.
IOW, IMHO @yhakak posted correctly.

Actually, in standard American usage the period ALWAYS goes inside the quotations, no matter what. In most other usages, it's a matter of logic; if the period was in the quote then it's inside, but if it's part of the sentence structure (not the quote) then it's outside.

But we digress. Other heilige yidden were trying to convince themselves that this scam was in some way an ethical and/or moral thing to do, when we (and they, i think) know that's not true. And before starting a technical pseudo-halachic argument about נבל ברשות התורה, have a look at the bottom of ערובין ק:ב

If it's not a scam (and you have better chances of getting hit by lightning than that) you're scamming the investors, breaking a few SEC regulations, scamming whatever entity provides the 'education' grant, etc.

Nope, don't see anything not yoshor about that... Hey as long as we make money it's all good, right? (/sarcasm)

You think there's actually an education grant? I was assuming this was part of the pyramid scheme...
