I'm considering investing my money with a London broker who offers excellent returns. But the only information I can find about the investment are two numerical codes:

Deposits: 3.428571428571...
Withdrawals: 15724799

Should I invest my money there?

    $\begingroup$ you should absolutely invest money with a broker that likes to obfuscate his results. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Don't invest your money with ANY fund manager. Read Random walk down Wall Street by malkiel. Basically no one can beat the market so just invest in the market benchmark index - i.e. An ETF $\endgroup$ Sep 9, 2017 at 17:08

    $\begingroup$ @Sridhar-Sarnobat, this is not a real investment opportunity (otherwise, it would be on a different Stack Exchange site). It's on Puzzling, so that means it's a brain teaser. Try to figure out the hidden meaning. In this case, another user has already come up with the answer. If you can't figure it out, you can read the Answer below. $\endgroup$ Sep 9, 2017 at 17:14

No, you should not invest with them!

They will ask for your deposits all day, every day,

3.428571428571 = 24/7, as in 24 hours per day, 7 days a week

but if you ask for a withdrawal, they turn you away! And instead, they will tell you to

EFF OFF (or EFF0FF, which is hexidecimal for 15724799)
