    Aviva a ponzi scheme?

    How is Aviva selling a guaranteed 18.5% annuity return? It's gone from 6% to 9% to 18.5% over the last 18 months. This canary is about to expire and will rock the investment world. Where are the regulators? Who is looking at the books? No risk 18.5% returns? Hey this is the best idea since privatizing Social Security.

    • WOW! I guess you have to take the good with the bad when it comes to the Internet's ability to give anyone a forum to share.

      First thing I note is the posting was made on Christmas. Should I assume that the author was the Grinch?

      As someone who follows financial stocks from banks to insurance companies, going after someone like Aviva with their financial strength and history is amusing. Maybe instead of posting their post on Christmas they should have waited until April 1st so we would all understand their April Fool's Day joke.

      I am left with only two guesses as to the agenda this poster is pushing.

      Either A. they are trying to influence the price of the stock so they can increase their position in the stock at a more favorable price or B. they are a competitor or former employee/agent with an axe to grind.
