HYIP stands for High Yield Investment Program.
As the name implies, these kinds of investment programs usually come with high returns on investment made by investors and there is usually high risk involved.
The popularity of HYIPs came about when e-currencies like e-gold, stormpay, etc were introduced.
Investors are allowed to invest in small amounts which made the programs very popular and easy to follow.
Over 94% of HYIP sites are SCAM and these scam sites use the ponzi scheme or pyramid scheme in which new investors' money is being used to pay existing investors.
This process will be continued as long as new investors are found, which explains why even fraudulent funds are able to provide the promised payouts initially and once there are no more new investors, these programs disappear.
This is the reason why most people refer to HYIPs as SCAM and as a result they are afraid to invest, afraid to take calculated risks and afraid to loose money.
People are afraid to take risks not because the investment is risky but because they themselves are risky.
Why do I say this?..
The problem always is that while more people are investing, very few of them are enlightened and well educated investors.
