My portfolio (golden goose) is worth well over $40K right now, but I can't get her to give me any of the eggs. She's hoarding all of them!
On top of that, you can't buy any more digots right now. Digots are "shares" of e-currency trading business in various states and countries. What I used to do was take the "earnings" from my portfolio each week and invest it in digots, which in turn would earn more money (like dividends on shares of stock). Basically, the earnings are based on a share of what DXInOne makes for doing ecurrency trading and collecting fees. But since I only invested $700 out of my pocket, and my portfolio is now worth $40K+, I can't explain where all that money came from. If you ask The Tim, it's fairy dust! :-)
INTGOLD and e-gold have BOTH been raided by the FBI recently.
Here's part of a recent email I received about problems on the ecurrency front. This came from Joel Glanfield of DXTutor.com:
This is not your standard warning about IntGold. About a month ago, I requested a cheque from IntGold, which I recently received as normal.
Unfortunately, I woke up today to find out that the cheque bounced. That's right, it bounced! IntGold has already had enough problems of late, including a raid by the FBI, but to have a cheque bounce from an online currency is a pretty serious thing in my opinion.
This is not a scare tactic to convince you to stop using IntGold. I simply wanted to alert you so you can exercise caution. It seems like this industry is really under a lot of scrutiny right now (even e-gold was recently raided by the FBI), but for this to happen to me is a little disconcerting.
I guess I was smart to stop using both of those ecurrencies about 6 months ago. I'm only using eBullion right now, but like I said, I can't get any money out of DXInOne, so it really doesn't matter.

Yea, I'm still hoping! A few of the "big boys" with LOTS of money invested think it will come back, but who knows.

WHAT SHE SAID!!!
Who cares about your money? YOU SHOULD!!!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid...
