HYIP Safety TipsPosted: December 4, 2013
You’ve seen them out there: HYIPs, or High-yield investment programs, with promises of high returns in short amounts of time. There are many successful programs in operation on the Internet, but it’s important to know that there are also many programs making false claims, breaking promises, and disappearing with investments.
STPay has strict guide-lines for how programs can operate if they wish to use our services. This is implemented for your protection and greatly reduces incidents of fraud for our members.
There are a few important things to keep in mind when considering investing in a HYIP program:
Outlandish HYIP Claims
SolidTrust Pay does not give Payment Buttons to programs making over-the-top promises about investment returns.
Ever encounter a program making astonishing claims on investment returns? Do the rewards sounds too good to be true? Most of the time they are. A promise of “1000% in 30 days” should be a red flag that a program might be making false claims. In fact, it’s highly improbable that a HYIP program would be able to generate that level of interest at all.
Always consider the online trends when investing in programs. Investing your money doesn’t have to be risky, as long as you do your homework and know where your money is going.
Does the program have a SolidTrust Pay Payment Button?
If a program’s website does not carry the SolidTrust Pay Payment Button, they do not have our stamp of approval. This button indicates whether they have met the criteria to run a business through our company and have been checked over by our staff. It is important to note that seeing a SolidTrust Pay logo on a program’s website does not guarantee that the company has been granted the privileges to use STPay as their processor.
Asking a SolidTrust Pay member for a manual fund transfer is against our Terms of Service and can indicate that the merchant does not have our approval to use our services.
The Payment Button, if implemented correctly on a Merchant’s website, seamlessly directs the customer back to STPay to complete their transaction on our secure website. It is simply the safest way to make payments online.
After all, SolidTrust Pay is invested in keeping your money secure.
