    There is this incredibly naive guy in work who keeps banging on about buying New Iraqi Dinars as apparently you can get 1million for only 480 pounds. Anyway, he has been buying into them and says that if they go up by a little amount, then he will be a millionaire.

    Anyway, this is one of those if its too good to be true situations I am sure, but the guy is in the hands of debt management and owes so much its rediculous. Seems a get rich quick scam to me, but I'd let you guys have an input on what you think.

    Basically they are bannking on the currency being refloated.

    I ran into this idea a few months ago realising from the word go that it just wont work. If you still need convincing then follow this link . Explains everything you need to know, print it out and slap some sense into your colleague.

    Yeah, tell the 'other guy' to forget it, it's a really poor con.
