UPDATE – WangDang Demoted to "Hack Guru" Status!!!! WangDang What On Earth Were You Thinking Saying That!!!

UPDATE: June 25, 2012 – We as of yet have not received any retraction or explaination from WangDang regarding his recent conference call (about 10 days ago) when he whipped up many Dinarians with old and outdated news articles that he used as “new” articles, basing his speculation that the RV was really “close”, maybe even that coming weekend!

Since we have not been given any retraction or apology to the Dinarian Community, we have chosen to demote WangDang down to “Hack Guru” status, and have removed him from our list of reliable Conference Call providers.

We really like WangDang and his normally even-minded analysis, however, today with a very heavy heart we must point out some flaws in WangDang’s current analysis of the news and his Conference Call from yesterday, June 14th. 

You can listen to the replay of his call if you wish to know what we are talking about.  (530) 881-1399 PIN# 111646

We feel it is NOT FAIR to get people’s hopes up by saying that it will happen in the next few days – we strongly wish it would, don’t get us wrong, however the indications are that we quite easily could be waiting until July (see our “Hurry Up & Wait” Article).

WangDang is basing his opinion that we will see a significant increase in value (or even a RV) within the next few days!!!  His opinion is based on two very flawed articles which we will refute below with our facts.


ARTICLE 1:   Urgent, urgent … Maliki agrees to implement the Convention on the abolition of the requirement of Arbil confidence!!

14/06/2012 14:17

Said President Jalal Talabani on Thursday that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and the list of National Alliance officially told him to prepare for the implementation of previous agreements, including the “Letter of Arbil,” except where stated on the issue of withdrawal of confidence from the government.
A statement issued by his office received a copy of it for Talabani as saying that “paper presented to the meeting of Irbil in 28/4 included nine items, including a proposed withdrawal of confidence,” explaining that “the proposal was directing the paper to the National Alliance, and not to the House of Representatives, in the absence of to deal with them so they can be a positive display the subject of withdrawal of confidence. “
The statement continued, “The authors of the paper suggested that the notice will be given one month to respond to (…) and after discussion it was agreed over a period of two weeks.”
The statement said that “President Talabani received official notifications from the National Alliance and the Prime Minister to prepare for the respect and implementation of previous agreements and taking into account the paragraphs in (a Arbil), except paragraph no confidence.”
The leader of the Iraqi List, Iyad Allawi has said earlier that the issue of withdrawal of confidence from the Prime Minister was a proposal from the President of the Republic of Iraq, which he denied the presidential statement, which promise “contrary to fact and reality.”

Notice this is posted from “qeraat.org” which according to the WhoIS Database is a website started on November 15, 2011 and is based in the United Kingdom, not Iraq!!! https://who.securepaynet.net/whois.aspx?domain=qeraat.org&prog_id=GoDaddy

This is the only “Source” for this article that we have currently found – no Iraqi BASED, legitimate News source has printed this as of yet! 

If you find one, please let us know.  So, why would you trust a news source BASED IN THE UK and is just over 7 months old???  Especially when they are the ONLY news source publishing this information???

UPDATE:  One of our readers just sent us an email pointing out that qeraat.org is the same source that said Allawi was in the hospital on June 8th – and he was clearly at meetings that day! 

Not an accurate or reliable news source!  Thanks for the extra tip reader 🙂


ARTICLE 2:  Smart Card Payment System Launched in Iraq
Thursday 14th June 2012

Johannesburg, South Africa-based Net1 UEPS Technologies has launched a smart card payment system in Iraq. Net1 has developed a platform for unbanked consumers called the Universal Electronic Payment System (UEPS).
Consumers are issued with biometric UEPS smart cards, so that they can have welfare payments and other fund transfers loaded onto their cards. They can then use the cards for purchases at POS terminals, authenticating themselves either with a PIN or at a fingerprint reader.
Net1 says that the first Iraqi UEPS transaction was performed on August 3, 2008, in Baghdad, during the launch of the UEPS smart card technology with two Iraqi state banks, Rafidain Bank and Rasheed Bank.
The launch, which was attended by executives from Rafidain Bank, Rasheed Bank, the Iraqi government, the War Victim Ministry and the Martyrdom Ministry, demonstrated smart card registration; biometric enrolment and issuing of UEPS cards; offline loading of wage payments and government grants to the UEPS cards; and dispensing of cash.
A pilot project involving 100,000 beneficiaries is now ready for implementation across selected Iraqi bank branches, Net1 says. The pilot will enable the distribution and payment of government grants to war victims and martyrdom beneficiaries, as well as salary and wage distribution and payment to employees of the two state banks.
Net1 has already launched its UEPS system in South Africa and Ghana

When we looked at the url ID# (“id=6436) we noted that from the home page of this website the current news links are “id=7430” (although listed in a new format) – a thousand higher than “6436”!

We did a very simple Google Search and quickly searched back as far as to August 29, 2008 —  LINK:  http://www.wired.com/beyond_the_beyond/2008/08/electronic-paym/

Yes, this EXACT ARTICLE + MORE was posted on Aug 29, 2008 by WIRED.com!!!

WangDang, why didn’t you just do a very simple Google Search to validate this? 

We really like you and still don’t consider you a “hack guru” like those scum created by Beth Ogle like Okie, Bulldog75 and other hacks like JonnyWG – but this is a pretty serious gaff on your part. 

We really hope you retract your bold statements made last night, using an opportunity to do so on your Saturday Morning Call – it would be the responsible thing to do….  Right?

Hurry Up and Wait — Current Situation with the RV + Analysis by MrIQD

UPDATE: July 2, 2012 –  Hello hello!  Well, as we said in this original post, we would not be surprised if Maliki would figure out a way to drag this out to early or mid July or beyond.  And, here we are now in to early July!

Are we “happy” it has not RV’d yet – heck NO, we would LOVE for it to have happened already by now!  We must remember that it won’t happen just because some hack guru says it will – this is a major event which depends on many small events to happen first! 

Do we feel we are “close” – yes, based on the events that are reported in legitimate Iraqi news sources, as well as legitimate International news services like Reuters, Wall Street Journal and others. 

Are we willing to buy a “reserve” based on our feelings – absolutely NO!!!  We don’t feel purchasing a “reserve” is ever a good idea.  If you feel you want more IQD, that is for only you to decide when you are ready, just keep in mind that we recommend you just purchase only what you can afford, if any at all!  🙂

The important thing we wish for you to remember is to stay away from hack gurus and their garbage of calling the RV every other week…

Well, in fact, as our new Category segment “This Day In RV History” illustrates bluntly, we feature hack gurus and THEIR WORDS, calling the RV…. But, a full YEAR AGO!!!  So, PLEASE TAKE A STAND, AND PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING THEM, DON’T GO TO THEIR WEBSITES, DON’T CLICK THEIR BANNER ADS, DON’T BUY THEIR CRAP!!!

UPDATE: June 25, 2012 –  Continue reading

WARNING! Breitling's "FREE" Real Estate Investing Seminar – Could Cost You Big!!!

Okay, we were minding our own business, and we suddenly got a (spam) email from Breitling who is advertising his “FREE” Real Estate Investing Seminar – RE Investor Forum with Kris Krohn of Strongbrook REIC.

Now, we will say, that we Googled “scam” for Strongbrook REIC and for Kris Krohn, and did not come up with anything at this point. 

What we did find was a blog post with some Comments asking about them with some responses.

The article below written by Marty Boardman does not indicate “who” the Investment Seminar Company was that he attended, but his story was compelling to show how something that started off as “FREE” ended up costing him $1,200 ($600 + $600) to start, then later an additional $2,700.00 for the “Advanced” series which laughably taught him nothing that “common sense” would teach you!

Marty does a great job of sharing with you how you can get all this “Free” seminar information truly at no cost if you apply a little local “common sense” of your own!

We are not saying “don’t attend” the seminar with Breitling. We are saying that you could save your time and money considering what this author suggests.

~ Mr. IQD

Traveling is sexy, especially if you don’t do it very often.  That’s why I was so excited to attend my first real estate investing seminar.  I would soon learn everything I needed to know about how to get rich investing in real estate AND fly across country to do it.  Okay, Phoenix to Denver isn’t exactly across country but it was still exciting nonetheless.  The icing on the cake was I got to stay at a Holiday Inn – can you say free continental breakfast?  Yes, I was a real jetsetter.

It was 2001.  I’d just finished reading Robert Kiyosaki’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad.  His message was very clear – the only way a regular guy like me could achieve financial freedom was through real estate investing.

So I did what most newbie real estate investors do.  I went online and found a weekend seminar.  I spent money on airfare, a hotel room, meals and ground transportation.  I listened to 8 different speakers in two days.  By the end I dropped $600 on a lease/option tape set and another $600 on a foreclosure course.

Highlights & Summary of Last Night's News from #The IQD Team


Great Night of News, Analysis & Discussion!  Listen to the Call for All News Shared Conference Call Replay for Tuesday – April 17, 2012
or Call:
760-569-7699 / Pin 769478#
-Thanks to Brenda for the Summary/Cliff Notes-

“Straight Talkin’ Mike” Recaps and Summarizes The Nights News

(Listen to the recording for all of the detailed analysis of the articles discussed – So much great information shared… The following is just a recap of the articles discussed on the call)

We discussed several great articles on the CBI…

They talked about wanting to work hand in hand with the government… getting them to do the things they need to do in order to raise the zeroes… NOT delete the zeroes… raise the zeroes… we know that those mean two different things – we have discussed this many times – and when the CBI talks abut this happening they talk a lot differently than when the government talks about it… They always talk about deleting those zeroes.

Obviously the CBI understands what they want to do and the government doesn’t have any idea what they are really trying to do based on what they are trying to do, but it was a nice puff article out there Saleh coming out there and saying Look we are not at war with the government – the government needs to understand that we control the monetary policy and that they need to enact these things to keep the monetary policy going – not to use them as stoppers or to use them as things to inhibit monetary policy but its the way it is… Obviously they don’t like it – would rather have our reserves – but that doesn’t do anything for you – you’re not tied to the world system… you’re kind-a out there on your own island and eventually it all comes crumbling down – that’s what Saddam did – that didn’t work the first time… lets go ahead and see what’s going on.

Well in the meantime, the CBI has been trying to stabilize the currency rate in the streets – They put some dollars out to kind-a quell that – they’ve kind-a put the kibosh on people coming in and taking this currency and running out to use it for different reasons – they are getting rid of the “ghost buyers” and they’ve got more buyers using the currency inside the country than there are outside the country now… and hopefully they can keep some of it in the country to stabilize those rates and then they can move forward… They’ve certainly done it over the last couple of days and they are still working pretty hard to keep this situation stable… keep an eye on the CBI to see what they are doing.

Moving into the political news we discussed…

An article about the government talking about cutting the salaries… There was some “helter skelter” and “awakening” going on as the article stated… What we found was very odd I guess that they are trying to cut these salaries at this point in time… AGAIN a currency that is not worth very much and they are going to cut these salaries… People are looking at them like they have a third eye… The article said we will see why we are going to do this in the coming days – we don’t know what that means – we assume they are trying to work with getting more value added to the currency because that is the only thing that kind-a makes sense.

We discussed how many articles are coming out about the necessity to get these three presidencies together to have them meet and get them going – we know that the key regardless of whatever else you read is whose signing oil contracts – how’s the money being divvied up -that is the most important piece to this as we go forward as we have said many times because Erbil is a key piece of that – the power sharing agreement – its getting people moving… Until we start to see some very positive things moving in that direction – that’s what you want to keep your eye on moving forward… These guys can talk all they want but quite honestly you can go in and sit down and talk and if Allawi doesn’t get his minister and Barzani doesn’t get what he needs eventually they are going to have to move to a Vote of No-Confidence… Looks like they have what they need to do that.

We discussed an article that the groundwork has been laid – that they are ready to go – they have all the approvals they need from the clerics, etc – they are not going to tell us when they are going to do that but they are going to go there – my guess is that there will be some kind of meeting between all 3 now that Barzani is back… It will be laid out very clearly what the deal is – who the allies are and the lines will be drawn in the sand and they will either come out of there with a positive yeah we are moving in one direction – here’s the ministers and go and we will see what happens.

We discussed the pressure and publicity in the American papers…

Can the U.S. help Iraq return to a democratic process and the answer is Yes – politically we can do a lot of things – that does not mean that there are all kinds of conspiracies about this RV – It just means that politically we need to move the political process forward – the same thing we do with other countries – political meetings happen – doesn’t mean people are in control or out of control – Its the nature of how we deal with countries – Its a political process and a diplomatic process… They are told certain things and you go and have meetings – this is what’s going to happen – this is what you can count on and what you can’t count on – all of this is done in secret and that’s how things get moved / settled – who knows what will come out of those type of things… but eventually the pressure is going to be hard enough that they are going to have to move forward one plan or the other.

One article I read today talked about… Look we are coming into an election year you don’t want to have Iraq explode coming into an election… my guess is there is a ton of political pressure from us right now to really resolve this and move it forward. We will have to see how all of that plays out… Its not going to be something we are going to read in the paper… it’s something we are going to see the effects of as they go thru this and we want to keep our eye out there for that.

Last but not least we talked about the Oil Exports…

Record exports for April – Great article – they opened up this new platform and they are just pumping oil onto tankers and they are filling up and leaving as quick as they can… There were so many great articles about oil and business in Iraq lately… People ask us all the time where we are at and where are we going? The amount of oil and the amount of things that they have – something has got to happen with this – there’s a lot of wealth there – This was kind-a keep the faith article to let you know what’s going on and ITS ALL GOOD!

And there you have it…
