We all want to make more money.
And, for many, the dream is to make money quickly and with a minimal amount of work. This is why investing is such a popular method of making money.
If you take a measured approach, you should be able to regularly invest in carefully chosen stocks, index funds or some other boring investment, and, over time, amass a reasonable amount of wealth as you receive returns on your investment.
Many people, though, don’t want to take the measured approach.
There are stories of people making money fast by choosing the right investment, at the right time.
How many of us regular folks harbor the dream of, perhaps, taking $10,000 in capital and turning it quickly and painlessly into ten times that amount?
The unfortunate truth is that investments that promise such riches, fast and easy, are usually scams.
