They have no rational basis for making an investment and jump in without an exit strategy, or they plan to get out when a profit has been made, if one is ever made. The investment may go up, but since no plan is in place, the investment ultimately turns sour and losses ensue. As investors, we must resist the urge to participate in such schemes and steer clear of these money-losing opportunities. Our own behavior is often the culprit, and we need to overcome our natural instincts to participate in less-than-rational investment schemes, or at least we should have an exit strategy if the decision is made to participate.
