Let me tell you the secret to not losing your money with HYIPS. It's very simple.

Never, ever, under any circumstances place a single cent with HYIPs.

It doesn't matter what rating some HYIP site gave them. It doesn't matter that all your friends make money on one. It doesn't matter how long the site has been up. It doesn't matter if they claim to be making money trading forex, stocks, precious metals, rare works of art, or by hunting endangered animals. They are ALL Ponzi Schemes. Sooner or later, they take all the money and run. Even if you managed to make a profit, the time your money was there enabled these criminals to lure in more traders.

Your money is gone. Ask your bank and local police about how to file international financial fraud charges in your country. The chances of getting any money back are small, but if enough people in enough places file charges, maybe a few of these criminals will end up in jail.
