The first red flag that goes up about this for me is, are you an accredited investor? That would be someone with $200k of income or $1m in investments.

Offering investments to the general public requires a great registration rules to be followed. The exception is for accredited investors.
If you simply GOOGLE their name you see that they have a history of rulings against them for making unregistered investment offers. The state of texas is ACTIVLY trying to locate the principle of the firm.

State Atty Generals have slaped them frequently with lawsuits.
This is a HUGE red flag, in that your working with a company that is playing fast and lose with the rules before you give them your money. Most of those rules are to protect YOU. Basics like investment materials can not be misleading, must be based off of GAP audited accounting statements, etc.

I would RUN away from this as fast as I could.
