    The video starts off by saying ‘this information won’t cost you a dime’

    I then sit through the whole, carefully scripted sales video to arrive at a point where he gives the cost and says – well, I told you it won’t cost you a dime’

    I ignored my BS detectors and still went ahead to buy the product. Then got charged and additional $10 for shipping (not disclosed upfront)

    Then went in immediately to cancel the monthly subscription and get a message saying ‘You currently aren’t on any Subscriptions’. (See the message here: ) Great, concern addressed. Until, 4 months later, I notice that 3 x $27 subscription charges have already been deducted.

    Now I’m waiting what they say – whether they will refund me or if I’ll need to approach Clickbank.

    I knew it was a scam when it wouldn’t let me leave the website without restarting my computer! Whenever you are thinking of buying something online based on SCARE TACTICS, try to leave the website immediately and think it over for a few minutes. Do you REALLY wish to deal with people whom won’t let you get away from them without re-starting Windows???

    I couldnt believe it took me about 8 different tries to get OUT of the site. I kept getting repeated pop-up boxes: “Do you really want to leave this site?”…”Do you really want to navigate away?”…”Do you really want to leave this page?” If this doesnt tell you what’s going on, nothing will. There’s tons of information on the web (and, yes, LDS/Mormon Emergency Preparedness Manual) that is FREE. Or your local library will have (or can get you) books and manuals on emergency preparedness. FEMA site as well. Book stores too (Matthew Stein’s book on “Surviving a Crisis or Emergency” or “When Technology Fails”), etc.

    The only thing reviewed on this site was the video and the man’s marketing tactics followed by the declaration of a scam and some chest pounding for not buying the product. In the final analysis nobody knows what exactly is in the book(s) or if the book(s) even really exists. The one thing that was obvious is almost all “reviewers” are decidedly left of center and have a genuine disdain for Christians and conservatives as we all know a true liberal can never admit they are wrong and the true America is a place where all people are free to agree with the progressive point of view and be ridiculed for any dissenting opinion. I will agree that it was obvious in first couple minutes that there would be a charge for the information and I waited to hear what it would be, then he discounted $203.00 to $27.00 which was the final indicator that this was a scam. At least it won’t be a terribly expensive bite for those who did buy it.

    You start off just fine and then go off the track .Perhaps many of the reviewers are more liberal than you and most find it a scam as you also conclude. We do live in the USA and are free to express our opinions as are you. I am liberal and I am Christian .Again perhaps not the same denomination as you but I live in the USA and to the best of my knowledge there is no official mandatory religion.If I were to say all reviewers are right of center and have a disdain of anyone who is not a born again Baptist Christian,and we all know that a true conservative can never admit they are wrong (even if we come to the same conclusion) and the true America is a place where people are free to agree with the conservative point of view and be ridiculed for any dissenting opinion .I think you would take offense. Just as I did to this scam of a video that ,does not consider anyone that is a liberal or a non Christian Patriot and someone to be scared of .I think it is important to point this out .

    I watched quite a bit of the video; the tag line was something like, “Click here for the 25 Most Important Foods to Have on Hand…”but then you click on the video and that information is not there, for free, without making a purchase.

    So my question is to those of you who purchased the information (I have read some reviews that indicate a dvd purchase but the video I watched laid out the materials as books), is the dvd/book(s) informative? Do they list the foods, teach proper and safe storage (and safe storage from looters), safe water storage, power options (such electricity without needing a generator), superfoods for energy and brain function (I need those immediately!), and more…?

    I am truthfully very interested; I know nothing about survival methods and preparation as I am not paranoid and I have plenty to do today without being overly concerned about tomorrow but look at Katrina and Sandy and the tornadoes that flattened parts of Alabama just a year and a half ago…some preparation for some events can be a good thing. I would prefer to be more independent in such an event. The video makes some very good points about that.

    Your experience with the materials and not the advertisement is appreciated if you make it through this request!

    I did a lot of research on this video, and what kind of info it contains. There is a post above this one that actually list all 37 of the food items and in my opinion, right there is enough info to hopefully inform people NOT to buy into this video, CD, or whatever it is. There is a lot of really good information to be found free on the internet. Just take the time to look up things such as basic foods to store in case of an emergency, how to safely store foods for long term, what should be in a bug out bag, maybe even what to carry in a small day to day emergency kit (mine all fits into a Sucrets tin but has all the most basic items should an emergency occur and I cannot get home for up to 24 hours), and any other info you really want to know. Look into foods to stock up, non-food items to stock up on, stocking up on any necessary medications you or your family needs (Costco sells a high quality multi-vitamin that comes in a bottle of 365 vitamins per bottle for under $20), a good first aid kit, options to provide light and/or heat, shelter options, and whatever else you want to know. Maybe get a couple thick, multi subject notebooks and then begin making notes of all you learn, as well as gathering the supplies. Then store the books with the other stored items so you have all your info such as how to can foods, or how to fix a wound, even if there is no more internet or other resource base for you. Hope this helps and all the best in getting organized!

    I didn’t buy the product because I knew it was a scam. The reason I am able to rate the product is because just the advertising video is dreadful. If you’re a hardcore rightwing Christian conservative who hates liberals, then this product is for you, no doubt. In the advertising video, in the first minute he bashes liberals, stating that liberals are the enemy, they’re lazy freeloaders, and they’re not Christian. He bashes Barack Obama and poo-poos climate change. There is so much blame and hatred towards liberals it is disgusting. Also, the fear mongering is almost unbelievable. He stirs up so much fear that an under educated person could fall for it.

It is unfortunate that your bias against Christians is what you are basing your review on. I am looking for educated reviews on the materials for sale, not opinions on the sales video.
    Thank-you anyway,

    I purchased this and am very satisfied. It is a concise package of information that will come in very handy.

    I’m surprised everyone keeps talking about the 37 food items as that is only a few pages of this 52 page book. and a very small part of it. There are other lists of non food items, how to cook, handle water, garden etc. There is a lot of data and work that went into this, and it is all in one place.

    I admire anyone who is prepared and is educating themselves on what to do ‘just in case’. However you can get information is good.

    This 37 items package was sort of getting a bad rap, and it seems by people who haven’t seen it. I just wanted to let those interested know that if you are looking for good basics on survival, this fits the bill.

    I am a VERY economical person and watch my money like a hawk. I usually never get stuff like this but I felt a desire to get the info all in one place to help me be prepared. It’s about the best insurance policy I could get.

    Many of the survival packages I have seen go to extremes and seem to cost more, where as this has the basics of what you need and are things that anyone can do.

    Anyway there is my 2 cents worth.

    You are all way ahead of the game, and just the fact you are talking it over and looking at whats going on puts you way above the general population who sit on the couch with a bag of chips and watch the Worst TV I have ever seen. But that’a a whole other subject!

I was actually also looking for the list of 27.

    …adding to my above post. They even taught me how to bake in “dutch ovens” not electricity needed. In some states they have their own dry packing for long time storage. I took my beans, flour, sugar, etc to them and they canned all my dry food for long time storage. Otherwise the mice and other insects can eat it or damage. I guess in an emergency situation i will team up with the mormons, they are better prepar.

    Ok people, just go to the LDS church. They have been in the culture of self relience and emmergengy preparness for decades. They even hold Anual, free emmergency preparness coordinated with the red cross and other goverment institutions. FREE!! or I’m sure that if you go to any of their church buildings and talk to their bishop/pastor or whatever they will be happy to give all the free info.
    In my area, i have been in one of their anual “emergency preparness” workshops and they have plenty of free info, where to find long non-perisable food, how to storage, etc. They are friendly and not pushy with religion. So, i bet many of this scammer they even take information from them and them sell it.

    It’s pretty ridiculous.

    When I heard him say something about “the liberals” I thought, “wait, *what’s* he blaming on me? the coming world-wide emergency?” but due to the video not having controls and my immediate disinterest once I realized what a scam it was, I just couldn’t bring myself to sit through it again to find out what my progressive politics have to do with the world’s food supply.

    I am a 5th generation farmer, for cryin’ out loud! Ugh. I know a little something about control of genetically modified seed sources – it’s going to be corporate greed, not liberals nor conservatives, that bring a food apocalypse.

    Do yourselves a favor and google “emergency supplies” or “disaster kit” and don’t waste your money on predators like this.

    I work in advertising, and as a marketing campaign, it is very well done – reminds me of a modern-day propaganda film in 1930s Germany crossed with a Billy Mays ad. Scary, but effective – (Daniel is certainly making $$ on his little scam).

    I came across this guy’s ‘product’ in an ad. I clicked on it and was annoyed that there was a video, and that you couldn’t pause it. I’m glad my volume was at an agreeable level.

    I thought it would be mildly interesting to know some foods that would be good in some hollywood-like crisis. A couple of minutes in, I saw the thing for what it was. I found it very, very funny. This guy threw in every single selling tactic known to man, and it was done in such an incredibly obvious way. This guy had me laughing like few comedians ever have. I did a quick google to see if there was a list of the miracle items, but came across this site after a few of the aforementioned fake review sites.

    I am tempted to pay the 27 dollars just so I can share every word of his ‘research’ online for free. Of course, all of his ‘research’ is already there, but I thought it would be good to have it ready for anyone else that googled it too. Unfortunately I don’t have the extra money, and after reading that many people didn’t even get the product, I wouldn’t want to try my luck.

    DO NOT BUY IT! This Person Is Playing On Your Fears. You Can Do This Yourself & I’ll Help You!

    OK, now that I got the message out, here are some REAL resources you can get your hands on without any lies or theatrics! Here are some really good suggestions if you are just getting started in emergency preparedness. The bottom line is, you should be able to care for your family in a disaster. Consider 3 days the absolute minimum “kit” size for your family and keep it handy.

    1) Field Manual FM 3-21.75 (FM 21-75) The Warrior Ethos and Soldier Combat Skills: This is the US Army’s own publication for it’s soldiers survival, medical and combat skills. This book is only $14 on Amazon and can teach you more about survival than you can believe. Your tax dollars were invested to create this book, Use it!

    2) Boy Scout Handbook: This is NOT a joke! This book has been fine tuned over many years and the advantage in this book is that if you are a beginner at survival, this book will walk you through many essential practices with step by step instructions, and diagrams, $9 on Amazon.

    3) First Need XL Water Purifier: This can take water from a cattle pasture and purify it safe to drink. Try to find a better source of course, but it works that well. We are so reliant on water, don’t be caught without a good filter. Regrettably, this piece is $99.

    4) REI Emergency Kit: You can buy this kit, get an idea of what it has and what you might need to add, or you can go look at the contents and build it yourself. Many other companies sell them too, you choose. Either way, a kit like this can be a good place to get you on board. REI $165.

    Don’t be afraid to search Yahoo for Survival Kits and then list the things in the kits and build them yourself. Just do it, and don;tgive your money to schemer like the seller of this product!

What I want to know is why the iTunes radio station that I was listening to who advertised this stuff is not being held accountable? It was Magic Garden radio station. I found it on my MacBook’s iTunes. Shouldn’t THEY be the ones refunding us all the money?

    …of course, nobody can replace the HUGE amount of time I wasted watching these initial email videos.

    I bought the CD and was very disappointed! It’s basic information that is either common sense or can be found on the Internet or You Tube! Do Not buy this!
    I was not impressed at all with the information.
    I am going to attempt to return the product but based off the reviews I doubt I will have any luck.
    Not a big deal but I forgot to mention I had to try To insert the disc several times before my computer would even recognize it.
    I hope this post saves someone some money!

    Brian, Thank just did (save me some$). This whole terrific site did, thank you all & for this page.
    Only reason I found this is cuz I got suspicious when in his long monologue he says, “You see… “, a telltale sign this is DIrect Marketing, the big final sales push is being launched, and you’re about to be scammed. Tried to check him out, every site, even supposed Review sites, is just him giving his spiel, or just complete nonsense. Added additional Google search terms: “CD-ROM Mac platform?” , and discovered this page, Thank God. Those of us who know how to research will be able to research this too. I suspect much of his basic material won’t be helpful to those of us living in small apartment downtown big city quarters, anyway. Many thanks, Brian, for your sharing your experience and giving your honest opinion!
    I wish you health, wealth and happiness.

    Brian you might want to try typing this into your search cryteria

    “Items needed for survival”, there are various other web sites with what we will need.

    Good Luck

    Thank you Brian,

    Your post among the others that had the decency to warn the rest of us who were smart enough to check for reviews definitely saved many of us the $s we would have been scammed out of. Good luck on returning it if you get the chance to. If you purchased it with a credit card you may be fortunate to get your money back by soliciting their help.
    Again good luck and thanks for the review; God bless.

    I was about to buy it, too!! Thanks! But does anyone know where I can get similar info? For example, he says there is a way of making a power grid cheap, and water purifier…I am interested in these items. As for the food, I figure stocking up on peanut butter, tuna, crackers, oil hmmmm…anything else? I am learning challenged from brain injury. THANKS!

    Sugar, Flour, oil, salt/pepper, water purifier, 6 month supply of medication, toothpaset, mouth wash, dry solids (milk, chocolate, cool ade, egg beaters, for eggs,) that you can mix with water, beef jerkey, extra water on hand in 5 gallon jugs; etc, etc just use your imagination. Be sure you have a first aid kit, 6 month supply of m medication, lanterns/flashlights, matches, warm clothing and blankets; Boots for wading in water and rain coat, you might want to buy the solar blanket or what ever it is called, which draws on the heat of your body to emit heat. Look around your home and you will get a good idea. These are just some of the things I have thought about while reading this post. Also, check out

    Go to any army/navy store and buy purification tablets. However just letting impurities settle to the bottom and then boiling after you remove them work fine and is nearly free. Buy a gas stove at the army/navy store.

    October 1st, 2012. I just received a email and I watched his Sold Out Video. And good thing I said check it out first. Thanks to all of you and this site I made the right call. The authorities needs to find this guy and put him behind bars for awhile and then lets see if his scam Sold Out after crisis helps him then!

    I too fell for this scam, back in September of 2011. Paid my money and NEVER received anything! Can’t get through, can’t get a response, NOTHING!!! Never again. I continue getting his ads in e-mails, and they make me furious! There should be a “no star” to click on, as how can you review something you’ve never received. Con artist is the best I can say. Then it’s taken me all this time to find a legitimate complaint site! Everything I try is just another link to his “buy it” site. Anger!!!

    I bought the DVD, oh, I mean CD-Rom, and received it quickly. My wife held me to an agreement we had about spending without discussing. I didn’t talk to her first. I’ve been trying to contact them to get return/refund info and it keeps saying undeliverable, yet I continue to receive e-mails, offers, from him. DON’T DO IT!

    Thank you for sharing your experience…I almost clicked on the yellow tab and ordered, though I was getting suspicious of his fear tactics; was curious if there are certain foods that work best, but always figured a supply of wheat berries, lentils to sprout, etc. would be handy.

    You have to wonder about the brain function of someone who goes SO out of their way to blame everything on the LIBERALS. This is just another scare-tactic marketer trying to make a pile of money out of scaring average people. And to use subliminal religious tones, calling you a PATRIOT just for listening to his threats, and drawing a picture of President Obama while talking about the Nazis — is just unbelievable. If surviving a crisis means sharing twinkies with this guy, I’d rather expire in the Armageddon.

    I trust no one who portends that they will provide you with a list of 37 essential items, makes you sit through a dreadful 20 minute 2cd grade puppet show video, only to bring you to an order form.

    Real preppers help each other, this guy is a scam artist using the SHTF movement to fill his pockets.
    There is a wealth of free information out there in forums, you don’t need to pay for this sham.

    You really watched the whole thing? I turned it off after the third heavy wave of Liberal bashing, WTF do liberals have to do with survival stores?
    But mostly I quit watching because the whole thing could be used in a “Logical Falacies” course. The minute people start using terms like “Everyone knows”, “Obviously” and crap like that, my eyes glaze over and I check for my wallet. It was pretty obvious to me that after he had repeated “37 items” a hundred times in the first three minutes that he wasn’t going to tell me anything without hitting my wallet. Further, if this is the level of BS in the ad, what level of BS can we expect in the product.
    If you have something of worth to sell me, why can’t you put it out there for me to measure its worth without trying to manipulate and scare me for the better part of half an hour. My bullshit meter exploded after three minutes.

    I’m glad I located real reviews so I could say something. In my search for genuine reviews I couldn’t help notice that there are sites that for a nominal fee will show up on top in searches that really aren’t reviews, with a little investigation they simply say the same thing over and over about whatever product pays them. They have a set up non descriptive article, and simply put your products name in, saying it’s not a scam, and it’s in fact wonderful. Then I couldn’t help but notice somebody created a domain name just to review this product!

    Whenever I see that much effort going into defeating my checking out something for real…do i really need to explain further?

    Guess I fell for this one. I ordered just the one book and have never gotten it. It has been about 10 weeks since I ordered it. After 6 weeks I tried to email them with no responce. They say in their receipt email to just click on the email if you have any questions. Well it only takes you to their site which again only shows an email address and no way to even ck on your order with any kind of order # Etc. What a scam!

    Re-posting this comment here, given its relevance to your situation and in case it helps it reach more people: If you or anyone else who has posted on or is viewing this site has been unhappy with this experience, I strongly suggest you report your situation to the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB is a quite well respected site for business evaluation and has made great calls on these kinds of scam in the past. The BBB currently has an A- rating posted for the business (to which the promotional video provides a link), but that it likely because they have not yet received enough information. I strongly suggest you report to them the nature of your situation to help others in the public see the offer for what it truly is, help the BBB function to its full potential and pull the rug of presumably superficial legitimacy out from under this business.

    Was all ready to buy the book, no problem. Had the credit card out and all info put in the correct boxes. It wouldn’t let me just get the one book. It kept on asking me if I wanted another set to upgrade, and then another.
    Sorry, I just wanted the ONE book. He says he’s not out to make money, the book is discounted, and now I see why. Don’t buy one book when you can buy the whole library…
