Description

The website telling people how they could get rich was compelling. It elaborately detailed successful results in trading foreign currencies and it was replete with customer testimonials saying how happy they were. The site showed customer gains averaging 1 percent a day. That explains why people from 140 countries decided to ask Secure Investment to manage their money. In "Anything But Secure," David Evans discovered how this offshore Internet company raked in as much as $1 billion. And then, on May 1, 2014, the website suddenly disappeared -- and so did all of the money people had sent in to build their retirement nest egg.
