How can I turn $500 bucks in to $10K?

As you guys/gals might be able to tell, I'm new to this forum. I got my SS about 1 1/2 ago. Took me a bit over 3 years to save up enough for a down payment (20K). It kills me to see all these amazing parts & know I will not be able to buy any of them for sometime... A very long time. Here I tought that tinting my windows would be enough but after being introduced to this site I can see I am FAR, FAR FAR to the 2nd power from being enough! LOL!!!

So anyway, I have $500 bucks (enough to buy one wheel, I think) to invest towards my black beauty & was wondering if you guys/gals had any clever ideas on as to converting that into 10K?

I don't want to wait another year just to get some really cool looking wheels & ground effects kit. I can't do much with just one wheel. I guess I can put on a gold link chain & throw it around my neck?

So yea. I would like to do this rather quickly.

It sounds risky. I think I may have a better chance going with the whole gun thing.

1) Get a discover card

2) Look for infomercials where they are selling $1 coins for $1 with free shipping

3) Buy $500 on new discovercard

4) get coins, go to bank and deposit back to bank

5) Earn 3% on discovercard transaction

6) Repeat until you get $10k

Hmm, I think this crazy idea might actually work!

Surprisingly the odds of hitting big on 500 tickets is actually pretty good if you stick with the $1 ones... seriously look up the odds!

for california: http://www.calottery.com/Games/Scrat...atcherGallery/

1:4.97 for a chance at $3,000 and wining several times is awesome. Cherry tripler all the way!

But instead buy the $25 tickets. My uncles gf buys $500 worth of $25 tickets (which is 20 tickets) a week and wins $1,000 fairly often.

The fastest legal way to multiply your income is generally to speculate in futures markets on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. You don't have enough for most brokers to even consider opening an account, and there's an 80% chance that you will lose it all speculating in those markets.

The fastest illegal way to multiply those resources is to rob a bank. Please don't do that.

I bought stock to up my mod budget last year...I lost money on GM and made money on Ford (kind of ironic isn't it???) I sold Ford at ~$6 last year...should have held onto it!

If you give me your 500 bucks, I'll invest it for you, and pay you back in small increments over time.
