Dear Dave: What do you think about investing in the Iraqi dinar? According to the information, you get $250,000 in dinar for just $250. Is this a good idea?
This is the dumbest thing to come along in years. It's borderline on a scam! A lot of military folks have fallen for this, and there are ads all over the internet for the stuff.
Never miss a local story.
Buying and selling currency of any kind, whether it's the yen, the pound, or the Euro, is ludicrous. Playing around with currencies is a great way to lose your entire investment in the blink of an eye. Add to that the fact that Iraq is an extremely unstable, war-torn country, and it makes it one of the dumbest things you could ever do with your hard-earned money.
Don't do it, Tiffany. You might as well just throw your money out the window while you're driving down the road. At least then you'll get a laugh watching everyone go wild trying to pick it all up.
