The GPP people made it possible to buy more endowment policies (yes, its not a pension, really… we are talking traded endowment policies) prior to the December closure. Many people in my downline have decided to go for it and as a result my referral earnings have trebled. This means that, all things being equal and payout being as they say and on time… I should be able to retire around mid 2008… and I can honestly say I am really looking forward to it.
They are still taking new members, which surprised me, I think they may have dumped the notion of sticking with 100k members, and they are offering another 250k policies up for sale to existing members… However they have set a closure date at 31st December, paperwork to be done by the end of January and payout in February.
I am not buying any more policies, I am doing nicely and I am keeping all my fingers crossed that this comes off. Its doable, its legal, but its in the lap of the gods as to whether its actually a scam.
