    Q: I'm sorry. This can't be real. There's no way a bank can be profitable while giving people returns as high as 23.25% a MONTH. What would prevent someone from depositing $100,000 in September, withdrawing $23,250 in October, then withdrawing $23,250 in November, etc., etc? It's ludicrous. So I presume I'm misunderstanding what it means when it says there's a monthly rate of 23.25%. I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me. Also, I am in a state of equally potent disbelief regarding the yearly rate of 28.5%. What I'm thinking is you deposit your $100,000 then a year later you would essentially have to go through a band of Argentinian gangsters wearing red HSBC shirts, ski masks, and holding AK47's, and they won't give you your $28,500 until you give them your little sister. Either that, or the bank collapses. Are you telling me there are people in Argentina who are willing to borrow money at a rate high enough to offset the 28.5% I would get every YEAR? If I'm not seeing things correctly because I'm blinded by the .000000025% interest rates they give us in the U.S., I would very much appreciate someone pointing out my ignorance.
