Investment Scams

I know it has been a while since I posted anything about the dinar on this site. I have been working on other projects. My music website has gone through a complete overhaul and my other websites have been getting some much-needed updating. In addition to this, I have been spending many hours in the studio creating content for the music site. So I took a brief break from the dinar, but I see that things have not changed much.

As I look at Google Analytics I see that searches conducted on the Iraqi dinar have dropped significantly. There were many more searches regarding this currency just one year ago. People are beginning to wise up about this investment. When I called this so-called currency investment a scam in January of 2012 most people involved in this said I lost my mind. These days many people have joined the bandwagon. State and federal agencies have also called it a scam. Dealers have been rounded up and some are still being prosecuted. Some have already been convicted. We were surprised to find out from the indictments that law enforcement agencies have been watching some of these dealers since 2010!

Investment scams are the kind of thing that happens to other people. As dinar investors, we assumed we were smarter than the average investor. We thought we had inside information. We assumed we were talking to people who were connected to “boots on the ground”! We were even told that Donald Trump purchased dinar. We never considered that we were the victims of a massive investment scam. We never thought that we were being fed lies on a massive scale. Most dinar investors had no investment experience outside of this so-called investment.

We survived the 2008 meltdown and a mistrust of the stock market led us to seek investments outside of stocks. The 2008 meltdown hurt many people on many levels. Many people suffered major losses in retirement funds such as 401k and 401b accounts as these accounts were invested in the stock market. We received a good lesson in risk assessment. Nothing is a sure thing. Even though we learned that lesson we soon forgot it as gurus continued to hype the dinar as a sure thing. We investors were looking for the any minute now revalue that would bring a tremendous windfall.

Now people are finally starting to wise up. Many have sold off their currency and many others avoided the scam altogether because of this site and others like it. In its struggle for survival this dinar investment scam has embraced absolute absurdity. This scam attempts to rewrite history. It has embraced the very flawed Global Currency Reset viewpoints. Now it seems that scammers are making money from the investors that remain by selling services such as setting up a trust fund for their soon-to-come windfall. These are the hardcore investors who refuse to accept the facts. Logic or reason are absent from their decision-making process. False hope and pipe dreams rule their actions. They even sign non-disclosure agreements in an effort to keep the fine details hidden.

It is the embracing of the Global Currency Reset that really set me off. This package of lies began to revitalize the dinar investment just as people were beginning to come to their senses. It has prolonged the life expectancy of this scam. As I began to debunk this and write about it I began to realize that this was much bigger than the dinar. In fact, Many different types of investment scams are tied to this viewpoint. CMKX stocks, NESARA, Omega Trust, and hyped up gold and silver sales are just some of the past investments that were tied to this GCR nonsense.

As I wrote in my last post the endless predictions of a coming global currency reset resemble the endless predictions that dinar gurus spew out of their mouths. This is done because it creates urgency and it sells the product. It also causes many people to overleverage and spend more than they should! As I dug into this I soon discovered that it seems that even more scams are based on this Global Currency Reset viewpoint. That is why this is so much bigger than the dinar. I looked on Amazon and found many books that promote the global currency reset lie. As I read through samples of these books I discovered that much of the material presented was based on false narratives and misrepresentations. There was a twisting of historical economic events.

Apparently, this is big money. We are approaching yet another date that will contain another failed prediction. The dollar is supposed to crash on April 5th, 2017. Frankly, I am very surprised they did not pick April 1st! At least that day would be more appropriate. This day will be like the many other days these GCR gurus have predicted a crash. It will come and go and the dollar will still be in good shape.

I should point out that I don’t discourage investments in gold or silver. In fact, I have precious metals too. However, if you are buying a massive amount of precious metals because of a so-called coming GCR event then you are buying these metals for all the wrong reasons. Chances are you are over leveraging on a massive scale. Now people are buying these metals because they are preparing for the end of the world.

This is the reason why I decided to write a book and place it on Amazon and other eBook retailers. Not one GCR book told the other side of the story. Not one book debunked all the junk economics that could be found in this conspiracy theory. These guys were making many converts. So for that reason, I decided to throw my hat into the ring and debunk the garbage that is never addressed in this conspiracy theory.

Recently I built a new website as a way to promote the book. This site contains much of the history behind this belief system. The main goal here is not to sell books. The main goal is to provide an alternative point of view based on the facts. The samples of the book will provide enough information to debunk many of the monetary conspiracy theories that are based on historical events. Many book samples provide 1 chapter while my sample provides 3 chapters. It will at the very least cause people to research this whole thing with caution. Don’t believe everything you are being told by me or anyone else! Do your own research! Come to your own conclusions! You will find a link to my new site below.

I had a conversation with Sam I am about the information in that book. Another podcast will be released shortly.

We also cover an experiment you can do while you listen to this Podcast. You will need a computer with the browser of your choice. You will also need  Microsoft Office or Open Office. Download Open Office from the link below. It is a free program and it can be used in place of Microsoft Office.

https://www.openoffice.org/

As we sat down to talk about recent events over 90 minutes flew by. So instead of taking the whole conversation and putting it into a really long podcast I decided to split it up into  two parts. Each part will provide incredible insight to the dinar community. Those who are still in this investment should follow along with the experiment. So if you are still invested in this thing then tighten your seatbelt because things are about to get really bumpy. Just click on the play button and enjoy the ride.

Those Wacky Annunaki

Dave-Schmidt 2Guru Dave Schmidt has gone from discussing private exchanges for the RV, to a global currency reset and prosperity packages courtesy of the Dragon Family in Southeast Asia, to interacting with the Annunaki.  If you don’t know who the Annunaki are, Wikipedia says they are “a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures”.  Some say that they are essentially the same as the Nephilim from Genesis 6 in the Bible.  Others make a connection of the Annunaki with UFOs.  This is where Dave comes in.

Last week Dave promoted an upcoming workshop where Michael Lee Hill will be participating.  If you don’t know who MLH is, here’s a brief bio.

Michael Lee Hill of Eastlake near Cleveland, Ohio is a musician, filmographer and UFO experiencer. He also claims to be an Anunnaki contactee. This 47-year-old rocker said over the years, he has developed an intuitive and benevolent relationship with these aliens. Michael said his UFO/alien experiences began when he was a child growing up in Eastlake, Ohio.

“My first UFO sighting was as a child, 8 or 9 years old. I was traveling in my aunt’s car and could see a saucer-type UFO right over the telephone poles. It was that low. Nobody else could see it. I thought that was odd. I was confused as to why no one else could see it.”…


Back to Michael’s meeting with the Anunnaki, he explained that they looked just like humans but when he first met them, “their faces became faceless, as if there was a shadow that tracked their head movements shadowing their faces. I have seen one Anunnaki individual look as if he had become translucent, as if his body was made from a very fine flame of some sort.” He added that he learned “from some insider friends” that the “Anunnaki are capable of projecting an image that they wants your senses to perceive in a way that will impress you and understand that he is ‘special’ and ‘superior.’ Given their higher cellular capacity, they are able to manipulate perceptual inputs into our brain, making things appear to be as they are not. But they do not have the capacity to shape shift.”

Michael said the “mind probing” on their part turned their get together into more of an interrogation. Then all of a sudden, “this leader figure became very excited stating, ‘Oh my god. You are one of us! How did you come to be here? We have been waiting for you to have a council meeting; we can do that right now if you please?’ I said regarding what? They said it would not be long until there would be another planet visible in our skies and they wanted to talk about what effect we believed this and the Anunnaki revealing themselves would have on humanity.”

Michael said the being sitting before him was “a king” of the Anunnaki and he assumed it must be Marduk.  “He went on to tell me that he was what is known as the Anunnaki and that I am also a part of this Anunnaki family, and it was a great synchronicity that I was ‘led’ there because now a meeting could commence between us all over a ‘change in Anunnaki leadership,’ and there would be a new time arriving for mankind and a new ‘game plan’ needed to be discussed. They told me the truth of the situation was that another members of the Anunnaki and I had incarnated into this lifetime as a humans in every way to be here for these changes. The Anunnaki Loki then intervened and said I have spoken with Michael already and he believes as I that humanity is ready for open contact and that humanity should have the chance to evolve into a galactic society, (that) they are ready.”

So now you know a bit about MLH and what you can expect from Davie’s “workshop”.  If you think listening to a guy who sees extra-terrestrials and who thinks he’s actually a modern day Annunaki is worth $129 of your hard earned money (not including any travel expenses to Sedona, AZ) then honest to God, I just can’t muster up any sympathy for you.  You have reached the point of no return.  You have gone from currency speculation to munching on magic metaphysical mushrooms.  You have popped the proverbial blue pill, never to grasp the red pill of reality again IMO.

When I started blogging about the dinar I was mostly addressing the shady backgrounds of various dinar gurus and the reasoning behind rejecting the “RV”.  But now, this is what we’ve come to.  This is incredibly sad.  People have taken leave of their senses to the point where they actually believe that their financial welfare would be well served by learning about secret gold stashed away by some Chinese “royal family” that will soon be handing out billions of dollars to worthy recipients, and by listening to a rock musician’s UFO hallucinations featuring ancient Mesopotamian deities.  This just shows to go you how empty this dinar RV well has become.

July Update

Hello again, and happy July 4th.  As we celebrate the 240th anniversary of our independence from England I am also celebrating the 5th anniversary of my independence from the gurus.  You see, it was their failed predictions of an RV in June of 2011 that prompted me to research the dinar for myself which is why I am here today. Hopefully Marcus and I will be able to help more dinarians to gain their independence as well.
sdf
As I’m sure you noticed, the dinar went nowhere in June.  That’s because the CBI (Central Bank of Iraq for the newbies) didn’t want it to.  They may have no choice before long, however.  The lower oil prices and the cost of fighting ISIS (not to mention the drop in dinar sales which was their #2 export) has brought about an economic crunch in the country, which could drive the dinar’s value down even further.  Look for another drop by the end of the year to around 1190:1.  If they even survive until then.  Take a look at this.

The International Monetary Fund has agreed to give Iraq a three-year $5.4bn bailout to help it manage the economic fallout of its war against Isis and low oil prices that have left a gaping hole in its budget.
The new rescue package, which the IMF said should be accompanied by assistance from other members of the international community, will require the government in Baghdad to implement unpopular cuts in public spending and other reforms at a time when the economy is already reeling.
“Iraq has been hit hard by the conflict with Isis and the precipitous fall in oil prices,” said Christian Josz, IMF mission chief for Iraq.
He added that the conflict with Isis had left more than 4m Iraqis internally displaced and was straining resources, while the steep fall in oil prices was “causing a large external shock to the balance of payments and budget revenue, which depend predominantly on oil export receipts”.
UN diplomats in Baghdad and officials in Washington say Iraq’s foreign backers are determined to get support to Iraq at a time when both the central government and the semi-autonomous Kurdistan administration in the north — both critical in the fight against Isis — look on the verge of economic collapse. With no money for repairs, several cities recaptured from Isis still lie in ruins.
However, Iraqi politicians privately said last week that the government may not be able to meet the terms of the IMF deal — which include fighting corruption and money laundering, as well as cutting subsidies and raising taxes.
Haidar al-Abadi, prime minister, is struggling to combat the patronage system, which has enriched Iraqi politicians since the US occupation of 2003. As well as facing rebellion from an elite struggling to keep privileges, Mr Abadi has been grappling with turmoil on the streets. Protesters led by Muqtada Sadr, a Shia cleric, last month ransacked parliament, demanding reform.
Last summer protests raged in several cities over shoddy electricity and water services. Politicians fear the unrest could return if they try to cut subsidies or increase taxes — especially if services do not improve.
Oil income used to account for 95 per cent of government revenues, but the price of Iraq’s oil has fallen from $103 per barrel at the end of 2013 to $22-23 per barrel earlier this year.
The low price, combined with continuing high public spending, has left a budget gap that the IMF forecast would reach $17bn this year, or 12 per cent of GDP.
To address the shortfall, the IMF has been working on a multi-billion-dollar programme with the government that includes participation of institutions such as the World Bank and G7 countries such as the US. In December, the IMF said it was lending $1.2bn to Baghdad,
Mr Josz said the IMF had agreed with the government on a three-year programme of economic and financial policies to bring spending in line with lower oil revenues and ensure the sustainability of debts. However, he cautioned that the measures would still need broad international support.
“The Iraqi authorities deserve the support of the international community in the implementation of these policies,” he said.
The new programme marks the third time in the past six years that Baghdad has turned to the IMF for help. A previous $3.7bn bailout expired in February 2013, and the Fund made a $1.2bn disbursement in July 2015.

And then there’s this:

baghdad bombing
 sdf
The gurus won’t admit it but Iraq is on the verge of becoming a failed state.  The last thing on their minds is making Western investors rich by raising the value of their currency to an unprecedented level.  They’re just trying to feed their people, prevent civil war, and keep Iraq from falling into the hands of radicals.  Our government doesn’t seem too inclined to do much to help, so that’s a pretty tall order for Iraq to handle on their own.
 sdf
You may have noticed that Dinar Daddy’s website is down.  It’s been that way for over a month now.  No idea why but as soon as I hear something I’ll pass that along.
sdf

As for ICW, we’ve got a few more videos to upload on YouTube and another podcast coming.  The other day Marcus and I had the opportunity to chat a bit with Nick Giammarino, from the Global Currency Reset YouTube channel.  Nick discovered the dinar “investment” in late 2013, and shortly thereafter discovered our blogs where he got the answers he was looking for.  He has a large following on YouTube and as a result he has a certain amount of pull in the dinar community.  So be looking for that.  Until next time.
