Scam Solidinvestment was made so that people could send their money into a website and have it invested safely. They promised good returns and that they were safe to invest in but all they ended up doing was talking people's money and running.
It all started back when they were called Jungle Ventures. It was a startup internet investing company that promised amazing returns. After a lot of people sent in their money suddenly they couldn't get their money back out. Eventually the company disappeared and the people who ran it weren't heard from again.
Later on Scam SolidInvestment started up. They were owned by the same people who had owned Jungle Ventures. A lot of the general public didn't know about this connection and sent them money to be invested. However, after sending in their money they met with the same problems that had happened with Jungle Ventures.
On July 12, 2006 criminal charges were filed against SolidInvestments after they disappeared. They were thought to be based out of Belize but after further investigation by authorities they have many locations scattered throughout the world. There are arrest warrants for them in a few countries and the search for the owners of SI is continuing.
A lot of people got scammed by Scam SolidInvestment but it comes as no surprise. There is a good rule that says, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." A 3% return on your investment was offered per day.
This kind of investment is impossible to have because in only a few years you could be one of the wealthiest men in the world. While this sounds like a good deal it just isn't possible.
After people sent their money into SolidInvestments they were told it was being invested and that it had started making money. However after someone tried to pull their money out they hit a big brick wall that they couldn't pull their money out.
The company made up a bunch of lies and excuses regarding how people just had to trust them and that a lot of internet scams gave them a bad name. It appears they ended up being one of those internet scams.
There is one way to make your money back if you wish to try it. The people Rafael Sosa and Sam Collins who were the people who either ran or were involved in SolidInvestments each have a $100,000 bounty on them.
If you give information that helps to their capture or you can tell the proper authorities where they are you can earn this bounty.
Since the transactions were made through e-gold Ltd. then they may be liable for damages. There is even a chance that they will have to triple the amount stolen by SolidInvestments.
This could hurt e-gold because of all the money that was stolen in the scam. It is thought that this is the biggest internet based scam ever to take place.
If you happen to have been one of the people that invested in the scam SolidInvestments then you may be able to get your money back. If you file a report no later than August 30, 2006 you will have your damage report on file.
If your loss was over $5,000 you may be required to send in your report to the FBI online or via their address.
SolidInvestments has so far managed to elude authorities and people searching for them. They ran the kind of company that makes most of us not want to trust investment firms.
It is sad that in this day and age when it's so easy to get a job and make a career that people have to resort cheating people out of their hard earned money.
If you know anything about who was responsible for the scam solidinvestment or know their location please contact the FBI today. The information is very helpful and may help a lot of people get their money back.
