You may laugh at my ignorance but this was my first experience with HYIP. I didn't even know what HYIP was when I joined. At this point, I am not hoping to get my money back but would like to at least report this scam, hope that the people who took the money will be punished by law. Also, they took all the members passport info, address, phone etc (this was required to join). I am concerned about my personal information being misused internationally.
