Because they already do. They are called financial investments, or growth stocks. One bets on the movement of the percieved value for equities. But there, you are gambling against pro's who are out to legally fleece you by making side bets.
Grrr, I can't stand dealing with banks. For the first time I have a home loan and car loan.....they are gready bastards.
How do u get your winnings if u have been out of the country when u won them?
Believe me I'm anti-bank but to which scam do you refer? A retirement CD at least preserves the number of dollars you give them.
I'd say stock market is equivalent to lottery, with poor odds of winning. I just lost $4000 these last 2 months! Makes me wish I'd spent it on DRUGS!!!!
The Banks don't want to help their competition.
