The question was asked "What Do Your Friends Think About The Dinar" The Dinar Community has shared some of their stories Hope you enjoy
STAUNCH: I have told two friends about it. One was somewhat skeptical and made the comment he did not have the extra cash to invest in it......so that was the end of that.
The other friend was pretty interested in it and started asking a lot of questions about it, and after answering a few of them, I found myself trying to talk him out of it. I didn't make a conscious decision to talk him out of it, just ended up going that way. i didn't want to be responsible for someone elses possible losses.
I think that in the back of my mind, i am skeptical as well. (hopeful and wishing for it, but still skeptical) Once i started explaining to him how this has been an ongoing process for 10 years now, i started hearing how wild it sounded. Anyways, i am invested, have high hopes, and look for the signs, but don't really think i believe it myself

DIDDLE: told one friend and she bought "some" because she trusted me. She has since done her homework and is very happy to be onboard. I told one other friend who is wealthy and a wise investor. Her son had come home from college talking about and wanted to invest, but she looked it up on the internet and read that it was a scam. She said, No way.
I told her I had really done my homework and told her it wasn't a matter of "If" but "When". She'll be one of the first I call when it RVs. HeHe.
THE MACHINE: yep I said it to a few of them .... one jumped right in saying "if your in , I may as well be" she's a good friend and i've put her right on a few financial things in the past so she trusted my judgement but I made sure I brought her up to speed about what could happen (ie. we're left holding a pile of worthless paper) .... others .... well where do I start , some thought I was mad , some just laughed and some just didn't get it ..... I did get my mother into this also, I was surprised she wasn't already ...... she's the one I get my financial info from , she's a banker.
Well all I say is each to there own, some people will never invest in there lives ...... in anything and thats just fine with me I'm not going to waste my time trying to convince them otherwise.
I guess you need to be a bit of a gambler at heart ...... and when it comes to your own money you need to be a calm, cool, collected and well informed gambler.
DOG53: I have never came out of the closet. I am a closet dinarian I have never told no one. My sweety says "it like alcoholism best not to talk about it."
I keep it in a brown paper bag in the gun safe so kids dont see it. One day I will come out of the closet One day I will shout to the world IM A DINARIAN !!!!! AND IM PROUD OF IT
STONEWALL67: I told close family about it but the extent of that was "hey check out the potential of the dinar"..... I let them draw their own conclusions.... Beyond that, I'm pretty much a closet dinarian as well..... If it happens, I don't want the world to know I got extra cash on hand.
HAWAII 50: I told my friends and family. They all said take a chance and don't spend to much buy no more than 1 mill$ and if its a scam oh well. I guess if I get burnt then oh well it sucks! But if everyones opinion is wrong .... The only burning will be on the beach in Hawaii.
LUIGI1: I still often try spread the IQD gospel to my family & co-workers. My family is broke.
At work, they still sneer & poke fun of me. I'm known as the gullable pot of gold at the end of the rainbow chaser & become the butt of many jokes.
Some co-workers often say "I see your still here working...where's those $Millions...you can spring for lunch & drinks after work...your a $Millionaire" I just smile & go quietly my separate way.
These Bozos are not my friends & they won't be my friends after RV, I guarantee that much.
I plan on moving far away to a small town in another state & start a new life all over after RV.
WY, SD, AK or WA are looking better by the day. I will help family & tithe when RV happens.
BADRABBIT: I am a Proud Diarian! I have talked to dozens of people, about half are invested, Im proudest to have my Daughter (who is 25) invested, she talks to people about the Dinar but often has the people talk to me because I am more comfortable with facts and can give research sites that I visit, so that the newbies can do research on there own.
Most of My friends are invested (after this RVs they each owe Me a steak dinner anywhere in the World-including all travel costs as this was the cost of me sharring the secret of the Dinar with them;) one of my Invested Friends have a second bet with Me...if the RV is over $5 then I owe him an Ice-Cream anywhere in the USA (including travel costs;) if it is $5 or less than He owes Me (I hope I owe Him an Ice Cream!!!) BadRabbit
P.S. I also tell people something that I believe Donald Trump said..."Millionares do happen over night-to become one you must have 2 things...you need the Wisdom to see an oppertunity and you need the will to ack on upon it"
GEORGE2351: I have friends that are invested with me and we talk regularly. I have friends that think it is a scam and think I am foolish so I don't talk to them about it once I have shared the potential that I see in the investment. I have friends that know about the investment and have decided not to be a part of it but they don't mind talking about the dinar, Iraq etc.
TRIPPHOOD: My friends think its a scam and it will NEVER happen. I quit telling anyone because I got tired of the looks on their faces. I've decided to keep it to myself.
BGSCHLONKA: I have told many friends about it. I tried to explain the logic that a small gamble could have a huge upside. I tell the skeptical ones, invest $250-$300, what is that going to set you back in life, a week? Probably less than that. If it goes one to one you could have a couple hundred thousand dollars.
How much do most of us piss away going out to dinner, playing golf, buying the right kind of AR-15. I always preface it with never more than you can afford to lose. Some friends laugh and call me a fool.
I tell them you should of seen me in my penny stock days. I believe that unlike the U.S. and it's fiat currency, Iraq's currency is backed by something that every other country in the world wants. The problem is getting three tribes to agree that they are not Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds but they are Iraqis.
If they ever get past that, there is a good chance for an RV.
KIAKAHA: I've told only a few people, none were interested. My daughter-in-law spoke with her broker & was told it's a scam so she's not interested. Only two of our kkids are even mildly interested of the 9... One just lost his job & was never able to buy in, the other wants to but at 19, finds concert tickets more important. They'll all regret it. Hubby's best friend is invested because of us & asks for daily updates
JG1: I have talked to a few people about it. My sister bought some. A co-worker bought a hundred bucks worth. Thats it.
I felt like a salesman sometimes. Some said they didn't have the money, but bought a lot of stuff. Some that had the money said it was a scam, even though I told them it was currency and the worst that could happen was that we would break even, it didnt matter.
Now, I wish I would not have told my wife, as I had to claim it on my assets in my divorce paperwork.
I knew it was time when I asked her, can you think of anything nice I have ever done for you and she said all of that was in the past.
Why didn't I just leave her in Hawaii on my honeymoon, when the bus driver told us all to grab the shoulders ahead of us and massage them.
SMEE2: My best friend was the person who got me into this, by giving me some. When I started buying my own, I returned her dinar, thanking her so much, and she used it to give to someone else ... don't know what happened there but if that person even just keeps it until the RV, and she will alert them when that happens, they profit by the dinar.
I had only one other friend I knew well enough to tell, and want to share the windfall with. She was very skeptical. So, I sent her and her partner a million dinar. It was about six months later that she wrote and told me that I was behaving in ways that she did not like; specifically that I was wasting my money ... and she felt she could no longer be a friend, and invited me to delete her email address from my computer.
Excuse me, you don't like how I spend money? Oh, as in buying a million dinar and sending them to you out of the goodness of my heart? And did she ever return them? Nope. Never mentioned them and I never heard from her again.
Her partner, actually she lives with her brother, has kept in touch, but cannot find out just what it was that spurred her to spurn me. Anyway, when the RV hits they will know about it and profit.
Now, as to family ... I have siblings who have not spoken to me in years. My brother ignores me and all my attempts to reach him. My sister I happened to stumble over on Facebook. I dropped her a line. She wrote back and invited me to go to H@ll and F**k right off, in those precise words but spelled out clearly so I would not misunderstand her message or her intent.
I did tell you, they won't speak to me. They hate me. I am not sure why. If it is something from the far past when we were actually in contact, that has to be over twenty-five years. How can someone hold a grudge for that long? ... for their sister? ... without telling her what the gripe is and trying to work it out? ... even if it just meant getting an apology?
Well, as it happens another person, a relative, found me on Facebook and we have been corresponding for some time now. He is a cousin. I told him about the dinar by sending him five-hundred thousand and giving him some information, and sites to check out.
He wrote back asking questions, and eventually took some of his own money to increase his dinar holdings to about a million. He knows it is a waiting game now, and seems prepared to wait. He still writes me so he cannot be upset that what I told him was going to be a short term investment has taken a lot longer than we both thought at the time.
Other than that I have not told anyone, except my insurance/investment counsellor. He was skeptical. I gave him one of the "one of every denomination" starter packs. He said it was nothing more than pretty paper.
Then I hear by the grapevine a few weeks later that he was at a party and was telling everyone about this wonderful currency revaluation investment, that would take a while, but was well worth the wait. I think he must have bought more or his own also.
So, that's it. Not a great result. Skeptical people who didn't mind having dinar given to them. And siblings who got not, and were not told of it. But when the RV hits I intend to take a large amount of money and have it given to each of them, anonymously, with no way for them to find out where it came from.
If they should actually contact me and ask if I got money too, of course I will say yes, and that I have no idea where it came from. It will drive them crazy!! Hahahaha
UNEEK: I shared the dream with only select people for the most obvious reasons - At first my introduction was as an innocent inquiring mind -- Had they heard of? Did they know of? Would they check into it - and I would tell them that I had a friend that was invested and as very excited about it -
I was even innocent and naive enough to ask 2 bankers to do some snooping around and see if they could discover anything - ha ha - nothing - nada -
It was probably a year before I braved telling my daughter and encouraged her to invest - It was a blessing and at a prime time because at no other time would she have had the money
A little later my daughter and I along with an aunt and a friend went in together to purchase 1 mil to divide - we all knew that it may take a while but that was okay and I instructed them to keep it very quiet among family and friends to avoid future problems -
Another year passed and things looked like we were really going to see our RV so I shared with a client and a friend - both were strained financially but purchased a small amount -
We are of course still anxiously waiting and all 5 of the ones I shared the dream with have never voiced any complaints about the waiting - they do not even bother me about the date or rate -- lol and they know I am on the boards and some chats all the time --
I like my neighbor and really wanted him to invest but don't think he has -- He asked some fancy friend of his in California so discounted "my" knowledge and would not invest - He still picks on me - in friendly fun about me being rich or when am I gonna be rich -- "Are We There Yet"?
I wonder many times if some of the others I shared the dream with have since invested but choose to not tell me?
As far as family - I attempted to share with a brother that is very astute and is even an appointed political official in our local government -- If I could convince him the rest of the family would be good -
My brother may have possibly listened with a more open mind if it had been from someone else but not from me - I never finished telling him the whole story or even that I did invest - and it has never been mentioned again -
Maybe my approach was off but I believe it was more his skepticism and thoughts of a scam with a little bit of no faith or belief in little sister knowing anything - the family is due for one big shock - and I will help them and their children -yes in spite of their opinions and lack of understanding of my "UNEEKNESS" lol
I have not shared with any in a long time as I realize the risks and do not want the responsibility or the questioning of when & how much -- or their blabbing it all over town
Not a very exciting story but I do feel good knowing that I have shared a dream that others choose to believe in and still believe in and with high hopes in living the reality of it soon <3 <3 <3 <3 UNEEK
IZZY: I purchased most of my dinar while I was a contractor working in Iraq between 2004 and 2008. I was still overseas in Bahrain in 2011 when I decided to send some dinar to just a few very dear friends and my brother and son (my only family, other than my daughter's who bought their own). I had already decided to help some people. Partly because of my love for them, and to be honest, partly because I didn't want to have them find out I was rich and wonder "what the heck?". I knew I couldn't keep it to myself.
I told my best friend (I call her my sister, because that's who she is to me) and she and her husband were so excited for me and so happy that I had shared my riches with them. As they were talking about it once, she had a light bulb come on! She said to her husband, "HEY!! Why should SHE be rich and not US?" So, they started buying their own dinar!
They are wonderful Christian people and have made so many plans for how they will be helping so many people! Another friend, someone who has had it pretty rough most of her life, someone I knew I would be trying to help as much as possible (she and her husband are both disabled), and I just recently found out that they had also bought their own dinar, a small amount... but they believe.
And another very close friend who asked me questions and based on his trust in me, he has purchased some dinar and has also joined this site. He has never posted, but he reads. (you know who you are, and you know how much I love you for believing in me with no inhibitions at all!).
How strange, and beautiful it is that we all have our own little webs of contacts that we have told about the dinar. I believe I have told less than 10 people about the dinar since I first bought mine... people I either didn't know or just didn't feel needed me to give them any, because they needed to believe in it, and buy their own. Of those, I know TWO who have purchased some.
Being part of the dinar world is almost like being aliens among the Earthlings! We want to live amongst them and help them and show them a better life! we have known there were others of us here, and because of PD, we have found our family, here.
One thing I wanted to mention before, is that one of my friends (someone I used to work with here, before I went to Iraq) ended up in Iraq at the base where I was working.
We actually got to know each other in Iraq... I knew his name, but had never really talked to him, but he knew my name as well, so we started talking and became good friends. He is the one who introduced me to PD, back in January of 2011.
A few people here know who I am talking about! And just to explain, I stuck this in here where it doesn't belong (chronological speaking) because I am on an iPad and I can't scroll back that far! :lol:
Now, as we start the next phase, we can move on, knowing we are better for the experiences we have had since we started, and we are ready to do the right thing! We will still have each other, and we will help each other be successful in our own, and our corporate endeavors.
I'd like to say, that, to me, it would be awesome to hear from the silent ones out there who seldom post, or who have NEVER posted! Tell us how you found us, and how you heard about the dinar! PLEASE!!
We are so blessed in so many ways! I love you all. So, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it! Izzy
