When to Start the Due Diligence?

The investigation process begins the moment opportunity becomes of interest to you. Your goal is to
make certain that you uncover everything about a particular program抯 real investment opportunities
before you invest in it. You don抰 have to meet the company抯 staff or even visit the business for your
research to begin. The Internet is an incredible tool that will allow you to investigate the validity of a
particular program.

Here are Due Diligence steps to follow before investing in any program:

1. Check out program抯 website

The first step you should do is to check out a program抯 website. Carefully investigate its website

Some of the things you will see on scammer抯 website are: Not professionally designed website, Old
templates with a standard collection of FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), Unorganized and Irrelevant
website navigation, offering unrealistic daily return, Poor security website, Continuous failing website,
No actual names and contact details and cheap scripts

2. Way Back: Investigate how a website looked in the past

Way back machine is one of the most important tools that are used to investigate how a website looked
in the past.

To investigate if they have been online for long time,

Type in the web address of a site or page where you would like to start, and press enter. Then select
from the archived dates available. The resulting pages point to other archived pages at as close a date
as possible. You will be shown the search results for your particular website, categorized by year.

Just see if the contents of the website at different times match. Also focus for contact details and see
if they match.

3. Make Research on Forums and Monitoring Sites

Another tool for making a Due Diligence is Forums. Forums are a great place to exchange ideas with
people who have the same interest with you. There fore, as a research tool, you have to visit known,
popular, trusted and professional forums, like HYIP Discussion and Hyip Funding and, read what people
are saying about the particular program.

Monitoring Sites are other Due Diligence tools where you can make your Investigation. But there are
certain issues you should be aware of monitoring sites.

a) Do not depend on a single monitoring site

b) HYIP admins treat monitoring sites very well. Therefore, if you see paying status on monitoring
site, it does not mean the HYIP is paying all investors.

c)    Read all rating given by the investors on the program you are making research.

4. Check WHOIS information: Domain registration data of a company抯 website

Check the domain registration data of a company抯 website. WHOIS information gives you full
information about the company including telephone number.

Type in the web address of a site or page where you would like to get information, and press enter. A
complete list of contact details will be displayed on your screen. Some of the information you will see
on the screen are: Domain Name, Expiration Date, Creation Date, Last Update Date, Registrant,
Administrative Contact, Technical Contact, Registration Service Provider, Registrar of Record, Record
last updated and Record expires, Record created and Domain servers in listed order

Once you get the WHOIS Data You should investigate carefully the dates of domain registration and
expiration. If the company claims that they have been working online for long time, but their website
domain was registered only few months ago, it is just an indication of dishonest. At the same time, if
the company抯 offers a long term plan and the domain registration expires in the near future, the
probability of company being a scammer is great.

Finally, just give a call to the number specified in the WHOIS data and make sure that the contact
details really belongs to the person listed in the WHOIS data.

5. Request the company抯 documents

It is always recommended to request and investigate the company抯 documents, before proceeding
with an investment.

     Valid Business Registration Certificate,
     Financial Records,
     List of banks with which the Company has a financial relationship.

6. Confirm the validity of the Company抯 documents

At the final stage of your Due Diligence you should confirm the validity of the documents requested
from the company. This is carried out by contacting the issuing institution.
