Here’s the inquiry:
Thanks for the article. I also had a bit of a look at the other articles. I found the Wealth Vault very interesting; however, at the moment I do not feel ready to jump into another membership and don’t think I have the confidence to take action on any investment opportunities since the _____ (editor’s note: he’s referencing the situation we refer to in our ‘Lost Millions‘ article) went so badly.
I am concerned about spending all my savings when I do not have an income at the moment; but, I know I have to spend money to find out how to invest it to generate an income (catch 22)!
I hope you don’t mind me asking you for a bit of advice (and I feel a bit cheeky asking, but do not know where else to ask). I am a total newbie to investing. How do I verify and check if an investment is a real opportunity, or a scam, or showing real examples of real people’s earnings… etc.
For example, ___________ (editor’s note: he’s referencing the situation we refer to in our ‘Lost Millions‘ article) says it has been going years, but it could be suggested that it was recently set up, where can I check that out? How do I know the figures shown are real and not made up? How do I know the people trading are qualified?
Everyone talks about doing “due diligence” but what exactly should I be doing and checking and where do I start? I do feel that ________ (editor’s note: he’s referencing the situation we refer to in our ‘Lost Millions‘ article) was projected as one thing but is not what I thought it was.
My problem is that whilst your “passive income” investment also looks good, how do I know the figures you show are real? What should I do to verify your product? I am now suspicious of all these similar investments. How do I know what I am risking? What stop losses are in place?
I really would appreciate any advice/help you can give on how and where to start.
My confidence had been shaken, especially since my gut feeling was to go with __________ (editor’s note: he’s referencing the situation we refer to in our ‘Lost Millions‘ article) and then it bombed out.
Thanks for all your patience and help.
