This was posted in 'DNA and General PCR Methods' section. It's richer than the usual spam, so I pasted it here, substituting "---" for links and site names. It sounds like a prudent investment, don't you think? Hey, suppose I divert my grant money for just twelve hours....? It's guaranteed, after all.

Gosh.. why doesn't everyone do it. If we got the banks in on it we could solve the financial crisis in 12 - 24 hours (depending upon our initial investment).

I wonder how they do it....I'm guessing it's coke or guns. Not much else pays 6000% return.... :roll:
It seems to short a return (time wise) for a Ponzi scheme... of course the most likely answer is you invest your cash (say £100) wait a week and find... that they have gone off-line and the location they are listed is in fact a shop selling used TV's.

(Happened to me once as a student. Went in a second hand shop to buy a TV. The set broke after 3 days. I went back to see the seller and the shop had turned into a Burger king or something..sigh)

You mean, they didn't give you 6000 TVs after 72 hours?

It is a clever scam. It takes your initial $300 investment. Then it gives you 6000% return, but ask for your bank account and route numbers for the purpose of e-transfer of your return, and then wipe out all of your savings.

One thing I do not understand is that why the guy put this in a scientific forum. He must think scientists are not that smart! :D

6000% in 12 hours guaranteed (or other amounts in case you feel like earning less money) is clever??
It's on a scientific forum because people who would fall for this are few and far between, so they post it everywhere they can. Sort of like alligator reproduction; only one in sixty hatchlings reaches maturity. I bet if you Google it you'll find it on other forums. They tried to post another version today.

Greed is a basic characteristic of human being, so scientists will not be exempted. Even you are thinking of betting with your grant money. One in sixty odd for catching a scientist is still statistically significant. :D
