2000 Sterling pounds won't get you very far. I'd say you need a lot more than that.

How much would you really like to receive and what arrangements would you suggest?

Well what a coincidence, just today a Nigerian prince has emailed me to offer me a share of his fortune if I just send him an admin fee to release the money. I'm skint at the mo but I'll share the prince's fortune with you if you use your savings to pay the admin fee for me? ;-)

Many thanks fleecednflogged for your positive reply.

I would like to receive a maximum of 6000. In my arrangement, I suggest investing time frame of one year. I believe that with this amount, growth investment strategy and a lock in period of one year should earn me good returns on my investment. Also I will re-pay back as a lump-sum plus a small token ( I am flexible on this ) after one year.

Kindly let me know whether you are comfortable with my arrangements so that we can proceed and / or make changes where necessary.

Fascinating! Just what sort of small token do you have in mind? And what security are you offering - given that I expect it is little or none then I think any investor would be looking for very high rates of interest on the loan. For reference Wonga charges an effective rate of about 4000% - would you be intending to match this?

You might also want to put forward a slightly stronger business case? This is, after all, a BB for sharing investment ideas so you could perhaps explain to us what investments you intend to make to make these "good returns".

Peter, I think you are being a bit too diligent about Deligent.

I thought it might be interesting to see where this might take us, if anywhere!

I'm always interested in new investment opportunities :-)

Why don't you try I think you might get a better response although your investment case may need to be simplified a little.
