As a follow up, 30min.net got the result that my mother and I expected. She received no response in over a week’s time to her inquiry regarding the ‘investment opportunity’. This goes as more evidence of the idea : “If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t”. Instead, consider investing your time, energy, and money into something that has proven time and time again to be earning such as a CD, Money Market account, an index fund, a drip account, stocks or bonds. You’ll be glad you did.
