APRIL FOOL: Worldwide Celebrations as Iraqi Dinar Revalues 1:1000!

Just as the dinar speculators predicted, Iraq has re-valued its currency 1000-fold, making dollar-millionaires of ordinary folk from Anbar to Arkansas!

The unprecedented 100,000% revaluation was welcomed by businesses all across the world, who saw nothing strange about paying $1,000 today for something that was priced at $1 yesterday. At the stroke of a pen, foreign companies now pay their cleaning staff in Iraq more than they pay board-level directors back at home.

Dozens of 'investors' in America partied the night away, as news of their windfall came through.

Billy Bob, from Alabama, exclaimed: “I knew it would happen, just like the Lord said it would!” When asked why he only invested $1,000 if he knew it would revalue, he declined to comment.

Peggy Sue, of Butte, Montana, said:

Wooo hooo!!! I knew if I just said 'Go RV!' one more time on an internet forum that it would somehow make it all come true – you just have to believe hard enough!

    Revalue doesn't mean you gained any value. Mexico revalued the Peso back in the 1990's. They revalued it by 1:1000. This means that you can pay 5 Nuevo Pesos for a Barley Soda that you used to pay 5000 Pesos for.

    A revalue does nothing except change the nomenclature on the face of the bill, the value largely remains the same. A revalue is just that, the number on a bill changes, but the purchasing power stays the some. Talk to some people in Zimbabwe about revalues, and their Trillion Dollar notes that buy a loaf of bread...

    STFU about revalues...

    is this really true or an april fools joke? the names seem to come off as fake?

  14. Jaydee 1st April 2012 at 15:28 #

    That's not even funny, but we'll see who gets the last laugh. I'm a believer.

  15. nuttintosay 1st April 2012 at 15:34 #

    Bill Bob in west virginny says better put another fridge on the back porch to hold all that mu-laa.

  17. FREE-DVD-BIZ 1st April 2012 at 15:52 #

    Yes, I expected the same, and this didn't disappoint, this whole revalue thing has become a bad joke having heard it is done a thousand times over the years, so someday, just not today.

  18. Gekko 1st April 2012 at 16:13 #

    ROTFLMAO!!!!!

  19. Mike 1st April 2012 at 16:15 #

  23. That'sWrite 1st April 2012 at 16:58 #

    Nah. This is a HOOT! Come on, fellow Dinarians. We need to have a sense of humor about ourselves. I think this was a great joke. The writer pretty much pegged much of the U.S. dinar investment community.

    That done, I'm glad to have found this site to check for the real announcement.

    Dancing in the streets. ROFL

    Good April Fool's gag, writers!

  24. Guitarzan 1st April 2012 at 17:09 #

  26. Wendy Nicholls 1st April 2012 at 17:28 #

    A year ago I would have thought this was a cruel joke (albeit being April 1st). However I made a decision last year that I would not sit idly by and hang on the word of "The Gurus" and all their "Rumtel" with the hope that "this time" they were right and all my financial worries would go away when the iqd RV'd. Will the value of the IQD increase? I'm sure it will but I'm also sure you can't just hang out in forums and invest none of your own energy and expect to see an ROI.

    BAD APRIL FOOL DAY JOKE........

    Just to clarify, that was, of course, an April Fool's joke.

  37. Mickey 1st April 2012 at 19:22 #

    Evil genius.

  38. Dan 1st April 2012 at 19:30 #

    Hardy, har har har.... I am sure the guy who wrote this owns iqd.

  39. Stew 1st April 2012 at 19:37 #

    Gurus and pumpers have pulled this same joke on a weekly basis for 7 years now. Where is the outrage for them?

  40. belizebound 1st April 2012 at 19:40 #

    This is really no different than the "gurus" who get everyone hyped for an RV based on their "super credible intel". They just took it one step further to show just how easy it is for those self-professed gurus to create quoted material from "sources" too risky to mention. I like to stick to the ones that showcase actual articles, not regurgitated garbage or false headliners to draw you in just to read mindless chats/posts to supposedly keep you in a positive state. Worse, to share an experience that a friend of a friend had with a bank teller about the weather. How sweet.

  41. recockulass 1st April 2012 at 19:46 #

    this is stupid

  42. TJ 1st April 2012 at 20:20 #

  43. billy hill 1st April 2012 at 20:42 #

    It's a joke alright!

    The whole "investment" is an internet joke!

  44. Steve 1st April 2012 at 20:43 #

    Stupid,,, very stupid and shameful prank. The publisher should have a show thrown at him...

  45. Steve 1st April 2012 at 20:46 #

    Shoe thrown at him .....

  46. Steve 1st April 2012 at 20:48 #

    Iraq Business news has lost ALL credibility and most likely many many visitors resulting in lots of lost revenue. Jokes on you Iraq Business News LMAO LMAO

  47. Steve 1st April 2012 at 21:22 #

    For the editor of this site ... you are a very foolish person.. In times like this when so many people are hurting you think a article like this is funny? Best you take down your site before someone else does.

  48. Hogan 1st April 2012 at 21:29 #

    Steve, they obviously don't care who they hurt, just like the gurus. They are probably laughing at our comments as we write them... But it will all come back to them in the end. Karma is a bitch!

  49. Kickabuck 1st April 2012 at 21:58 #

    Very funny!!! If anyone is offended, it's your own fault for not understanding basic economics. This site is fantastic, breaking news can be found here all the time. Keep it up guys, it's appreciated!!!

  50. Jimmy 1st April 2012 at 22:39 #
