Imagine hiding a R14 707 909 secret from your spouse for over 3 years. Could you do it? Michelle Tsotsobe, a Johannesburg mother of 2, risked her marriage and her family to hide a shocking secret from her husband of 13 years.

David and Michelle Tsotsobe, residents of the Parktown neighborhood of Johannesburg, married in 2004 after years of dating. David worked as an engineer in the city and Michelle took a job as a receptionist at a local clinic. After their first child, Jon, was born in 2008, they decided that Michelle would quit her job to stay home with their children.

The manufacturing industry was hit hard during the financial crisis of 2008. Thankfully, David did not lose his job, but he had to work more hours and take a heavy pay cut to help his company survive. “David was providing for our needs, but I noticed how tired he became. We tried to save all the money we could but it never seemed like enough" Michelle shared. “We really were not sure what was going to happen. The market did pick up, but it dropped again. And by that point, I was pregnant with Emma, so we just prayed to God for the best.”

“We really were not sure what was going to happen financially. We just prayed to God for the best.”

Soon after Emma was born, Michelle was browsing Facebook one afternoon and saw an advertisement saying she could earn R15 983 per day from home. Curious, she clicked on it and did some research. “It had some excellent reviews from a lot of users so I felt safer signing up for the system. It is not like those ‘get rich quick’ scams where you have to sell things to make a living. If I did have to sell things I would not have signed up” Michelle shared.

I became interested because the method was pretty easy. I began to look for an additional information and finally I found several Facebook groups and financial forums where people discuss trading strategies and give advice. I read that is one of the most straightforward and ""cheapest"" trading platforms, which has excellent tutorials and a demo trading platform.

“I was nervous about starting my work with . I do not know the computer very well, but they teach you how to do everything you need to know. I really only knew how to browse the internet, but that is all the computer skill I needed. I also did not want David to feel as though he was not providing for our family” Michelle shared.

After her first two weeks trading financial markets, two checks arrived totaling R204 238. Michelle decided she needed a way to hide this money until she gained the courage to tell David about her new job. So, she secretly opened a bank account without her husband’s knowledge. She chose to have the checks deposited directly into that account each week.

And just like that life went on as normal for 3 years. David would go to work while Michelle worked on the financial markets at home. She did not touch the money in the secret account. “It was very hard for me to keep such a big secret from my husband. I felt like I was betraying him, but I feared telling him more. Looking back on it, it was foolish of me to keep it from him” Michelle said.

Early last year, David lost his job. When he took the loss really hard, Michelle decided it was time to tell him what she had been doing everyday. So, one afternoon, she walked to the bank and cashed out the secret account she had been growing for over 3 years. By then the account had made over R14 708 304.

“Michelle sat down next to me and told me she had been hiding something from me and that God would be ashamed of her” David shared. Then she pulled a check from her dress and handed it to me. It was written out to her and signed by our bank for R14 370 452. I did not believe it at first, and then she told me about the financial markets and

“David was silent at first. I thought he was angry and was considering a divorce. But, then he started crying and hugged me. I told him how ashamed and sorry I was but he just exclaimed how relieved he was that his prayers for a solution to our financial problems had been answered” Michelle shared.

“My prayers were answered. We went from making R0 to making around R14 587 every day”

David and Michelle’s story has been shared on hundreds of local media outlets including blogs, reports and the local news. When we found the story, we immediately asked to feature it in our local job report.

Since reading about Michelle’s story, we sent Jeremy Piven, our very own CapeNews reporter to test and review his experience with the .

But be quick because the sign up is only open for one more week and the places are filling up fast.

You could be as lucky as Michelle and be the owner of a sucessful work from home business. It would be almost foolish not to go for it!

To everyone who is a bit skeptical, just to let you know I at first thought the same till I gave it a try. I do the exact same thing now. I clear roughly $3k a week. I'm 31 and in a few months I will be walking into New Zealand to pay off my auto loan in a big lump sum. If you're a hater, keep hating. But if you're a dreamer who knows anything is possible with the right attitude.. this is for you.
