Is this a sound investment, or one that should be avoided?
100% of people found this answer helpful

First of all, this is not your friend. Second of all, you need to call the state securities regulator in your state and turn them in TODAY!!!. They could have already scammed several people out of millions of dollars and this needs to be stopped right now. It is highly likely to be a Ponzi scheme.

Advice for you is to live by these rules. Never buy anything that is not publicly traded and never buy anything that is not liquid. If the investment is not publicly traded then a red flag should immediately go up. Your investments must be in publicly traded investments only. 

Never invest in something illiquid like "90-day perpetual note". Are you serious? This is the biggest bunch of hooey. They are crooks. Report them to authorities.

Your money should always be liquid, meaning that you should be able to get your money through a reputable firm like Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade in as little as two business days. Anything else and you are likely talking to an unscrupulous advisor, if not a Ponzi schemer.
