There is no reason at all to get Netflix in UAE. Barely any of the good stuff is available. Most of the titles are boring. When all of the advertisements for Netflix UAE include master of none and chef's table, you know there is not enough good content. I want to be able to watch friends, parks and recs, and the office. Unfortunately you get a limited number of good titles that you will end up repeating.

That amount of money is so insane it's almost laughable. As if I'm over here trying to divorce for under $100. (which actually exists, www.thistoo.co ). Haha, maybe in another life I'll know what's like to work with millions of dollars!

While an increase in stake can be seen to some as a good sign, price is the final arbiter of value. Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan may have said that the bank is "rock solid" but the price of DB may say something else.

Ripped off with Palm Springs by Damac. Bought 2003 and they did not honour the contract. We had to virtually take them to court when they did give us back the money we paid. Still it did not take into account money lost using lawyers and the premium we paid a seller. Nakheel doing the same with Waterhomes. Only buy what is built.

Why am I not surprised?? Anyone offering ridiculous returns for a lump sum investment must be fraudulent or its a ponzi scheme. Also investors must be deranged to invest in the first place. If this has happened before how did forex get a licence to trade? J
