My expectation was that this asset was a way to essentially have the issuer handle the forging, and pay it out as weekly dividends, and I remember it being said it would be 1% per week, so that's what I was expecting.
I believe that we (the shareholders) should have been informed prior to the weekly dividends stopping, and with that information, should have been given an opportunity to cash out (such as with a buy wall). I am not sure what HEAT is all about, but it was not mentioned at the time that I bought the asset. If the issuer thought that buying HEAT would make a good investment for shareholders, then shareholders should have been informed and given the opportunity to exit if they didn't think buying into HEAT was going to be right for them. Whenever fundamental information about an asset changes, shareholders ought to be informed and given the chance to either vote, exit, or whatever other options make sense.
But simply stopping weekly dividend payments with no explanation and no updates to the asset thread is not cool, and yes, that makes the venture look like a scam.
Also, selling out the forging Fimk on an asset advertised as a Fimk forging asset is not appropriate. That balance should be in an active forging wallet minting new Fimk which then gets divided up among the issuer and all the shareholders. If the reason the issuer no longer has Fimk is because he "invested" it into a new asset (HEAT) which has yet to yield returns, that's at least better than simply dumping all the Fimk and leaving the shareholders high and dry. Still, though, shareholders should have been informed prior to him making such "investment" because doing so fundamentally changes the nature of the original asset.
I would have liked to have been given the chance to either say "yes, go for it, HEAT sounds like an amazing investment!" or "I'd prefer to not participate at this time; please buy me out so that I can put the funds towards a different investment of my own choosing."
