GEORGE TOWN: A 35% return on an investment sounds too good to be true, but it seems like investors of JJPTR still have complete faith in founder Johnson Lee and his new scheme, which he plans to launch on Friday.
A woman in her 50s said if the company reimbursed her money from the failed JJPTR1, she would reinvest it in the new scheme.
“Although I have not gotten my capital back, Johnson (Lee) promised that the older members will receive their payment.
“I believe him. He is a nice young man,” she said when met at JJPTR main office in Perak Road yesterday.
Another investor, who came all the way from Butterworth, said Lee would have fled if he was not sincere about solving JJPTR’s problem.
“I feel he is sincere in solving our problem. He’s still around and frequently tells us his whereabouts and future plans,” she said.
“We must give him some time to solve the problem as the US$400mil (RM1.75bil) loss is a huge amount”.
A JJPTR employee said many investors now wanted to know more about the new plan.
“Many of them came to ask about the new scheme as they did not quite understand how it works yet.”
