    Welcome to the forum, those are some nice looking nuggets you have there.

    I think that statistic was incorrect unfortunately, I have reset the stats from just now.

    Currently including guests there are 41 people online on the forum. 
  3. ChrisSilver liked a post in a topic by onlyroadtoheaven in Goal - Financial Independence In Ten Years   
    Having just read "Rich Dad Poor Dad", I am now half way through "From zero to financial independence in less than 10 years". I love the idea of cumulative interest and money working for me so It has inspired me to attempt my own financial independence within 10 years - and what better time to start than the beginning of a new year ... so I need an investment plan!
    Currently I am lightly invested in PMs, a couple of Mining and Potash shares. Although I don't spend much anyway I plan to cut back even further to reach my goal.
    Property has done well for many people in the past but my view is that this won't continue ... although I might be wrong as I need to research property investment further. I am also a bit cautious of PMs at the moment as I really wasn't expecting them to drop as much as they have recently, especially with all the debt around and the printing of money.
    1) I assume most people on here are pretty economically clued up and financially savvy so was wondering what other people see as good areas to invest in for the coming couple of years???
    2) Does anyone else have one of these plans in place?

    Another cool app I found. You select the date you want to save by, how much you want to save, and if you want the amount to be taken out daily, weekly or monthly. It then withdraws this amount automatically from your bank and puts it into the savings account for the thing you are saving for.
    You can also make groups and save for things.
    Note this is UK based. Funds are held in a segregated Barclays Bank account. 
    I thought it wasn't pretty cool app

    Had a check. Upload size is set to unlimited. So not sure what is causing the issue. Will update the forum software to the latest version sometime soon which may fix this. Meanwhile workaround would be to email photo to yourself. Open on computer and then upload. If still not working, change the name and resale as a .jpg that usually fixes it.

    @atemkengwalters
    You have not replied to my queries as yet above and you have not forwarded me my samples for assay of quality & purity 
    Please reply soon, as I have also had the offer of a 1000+oz of silver cheap today and also the offer of several million Euros from a ex-Nigerian Financial Minster working on behalf to a leading Petroleum Corporation. He said he wanted to transfer several ($) million to the my bank account – money that was budgeted for but never spent and he thinks me as a randomly selected email address is the perfect recipient 
    In exchange for transferring the funds out of Nigeria, I would get to keep 30% of the total. 
    I do not wish to miss out on any of these chances to make it mega rich for zero to little effort to myself or spread myself to thinly on one offer so I eagerly await your positive reply 
    Seasons greets from the UK
    Best wishes PAUL

    In your senior role of company director, could you possibly liaise with your CEO to post here and respond to my direct requests. As you can see there is are already active replies and responses from obviously interested parties. A samples of your gold for assay and purity would bridge a gap of trust
    I have many previous trade references, I have dealt actively with George Agdgdgwngo for previous gold deals direct from Africa, he was based in Uganda, he was reliable and honest. He represented Ugandan Gold Luxury Yieldings (UGLY)  we met via a similar online forum ?
    Has your company been affiliated with his ?

    No need to send me PM @atemkengwalters   with your contact details, please reply to me in this thread, there will be many people who who would like to benefit I'm sure, keep it public for all to see
    We are all gold and silver buyers here with mucho pounds and euros to spend on the right items, especially if you can source under spot price
    Please post up some photos of your stock?
    What is your company web site ?
    A one line gmail account for a company your size with in excess of 500kg gold at your disposal may make others a little sceptical to your offerings and your legitimacy as a trusted precious metals dealer.
