Iraqi Dinar Guru Investment: How The Scam Works
Did anyone approach you as a Dinar guru and told you about the miracle that might happen to you? Well, beware of the Iraqi Dinar Guru scam. Let’s take a look
The hype about the investment in Iraqi Dinars has been going around for a while and it’s still going. Sellers explain that as democracy will come to Iraq, the economy will flourish and the value of the Dinar will grow.
The pitch is that you can buy an Iraqi Dinar for pennies now. Then it will be worth at least $2 as soon as the UN recognizes the Iraqi currency. Just like any other potential money-making opportunity, the Iraqi Dinar guru hype created thousands of scammers posing as Internet dealers.
Watch How It Works:

They set up fancy websites, add “Registered Dealer” logos to them, and somewhere in fine print will have disclaimers such as “No guarantee of return”, “We are not an investment company” or “All sales are final, no refund”. They won’t even mention that at present the Dinars can only be redeemed in Iraq.
Scammers claim they are registered to sell Iraqi Dinars, but what they omit to add is that they have registered with the government only as a company dealing with money– nothing really to do with the IQD.
There are some other important facts to consider if you are thinking of buying.
In most other major economies around the world, it is illegal to market investment without proper securities registration, but scammers get by this, claiming they are selling the Dinars for numismatic value, as collectors’ items.
Additionally, when operating in the US, dealers register with the US Treasury as a money service business (MSB) to make it official but keep in mind that MSB is not marketing an investment. Basically, don’t be impressed by titles or tags that scammers use to gain credibility.
