Charges my credit card $199
July 22, 2020 and the Stansberry Research Company charges my credit card $199 without my permission and without notification.

Total waste!
May 6, 2020

They would do anything to sell any of their portfolios which honestly is a total joke. There is no useful information offered by them, this is definitely the poorest stock market service I have found so far!

Run from this company. It´s a total scam!

Total fraudulent sales pitch
April 8, 2020

I found that Stansberry totally misrepresented their Big Trade service in their video sales presentation. In the video they only presented Put Buying successes. Based on that strategy I purchased the service.

However, when I accessed the site it presented Put Selling opportunities which is not what I was interested in since I already have this service from another firm.

I asked for a full refund and was rejected. For new subscribers this is a total misrepresentation of what you thought you were purchasing. Not once in the video was put selling mentioned and I would add this is a more risky strategy than Put Buying.

Total fraudulent sales pitch. What a way to treat a new customer.

Save your money
February 17, 2020

Total waste!! Video shows printed literature to be sent to subscriber by mail. Stansberry sent it via email.

I'm 60 years old with glaucoma. They expect me to scroll through all that info on a smart phone. my advice. save your money. I would have gotten more from my money by wiping my a** with it than giving it to those phonies.

I am up 21.22 %
December 30, 2019

I have been using Stansberry for several years now, and the advice I have gotten has been good. If you are planning to deal in the stock market you must use a little bit of your own common sense in purchasing stocks.

Do your research. Remember, that the best investors only make money on 60 % of their stocks, you must be smart enough to know when to sell a loser, and to know when to let your winners ride and make you money.

I use only a few of Stansberry news letters, and I use some that are not so expensive and do very well. I have found that Steve Sjuggerud's True Wealth seems to have very good advice on a regular basis.

As of today, I am up 21.22 % on my portfolio this year. I will take that any day.

PS, you MUST have trade-stops to know when to sell your losers.

Lowest rating possible !!!
December 16, 2019

I have subscribed to many business stock market services and have found this the poorest of all. Add to that, they continually(daily) send you promotional material of other services so you get about 20 emails of promotional crap for your one email of what you paid for.

When you ask to stop getting the promotional emails they refuse. As others here have said, even once you stop subscription they continue to daily send promotional crap. I have asked at least 10 times for them to stop but they refuse.

What sort of company is this, no respect for their customer at all. I give it the lowest rating possible !!!

The absolutely worst newsletter I've ever subscribed to. No useful information. They continuously try to sell other letters to you. Useless. Recommend not purchasing. It's in my spam folder now.

Don't walk - RUN
September 10, 2019

I drank the Kool-Aid and subscribed to one of their more expensive newsletters. It turned out to be nothing more than an advertising medium to buy more premium services from them In 6 months I received nothing that could be considered useful information.

Now I have spent the last 2 1/2 years trying to get the subscription cancelled. They say it is cancelled and 6 months later I get a new charge on my card from them. I have to file dispute with card company and go thru the whole process again.

As of this morning I closed my credit card account. It is apparently the only option I have to stop them from charging me.

Don't walk - RUN from these jokers.

I get SPAM from them
June 27, 2019

I had never heard of Stansberry Research until a few years ago when they started loading up my email box with their SPAM. I have sent email to them asking them to stop, I have unsubscribed dozens and dozens of times and called them numerous times, yet they refuse to remove me from their list.

There is never even a two-day break between SPAMS. I get SPAM from them every day and I'm not talking about one. I am talking about for five, six, some days up to 10 emails to the same address every day. I find this behavior to be abusive and shows a total lack of consideration for people.

Every time I call they have the audacity to tell me that I "must have signed up" for their information because they don't buy mailing lists. That is such a load of bull. For more than 15 years I owned a web development business and I know how information is abused.

I have never signed up to receive information from anyone, ever, nor would I. How could anyone possibly place any trust in a company that does business like this? I feel violated and bullied every time I open my email and see their SPAM.

Buyer Beware and read the subsection agreement

Very poor customer service

March 16, 2019
I've been a subscriber with Stansberry Research for well over 15 years. I have made my subscription price many times over. I don't follow every one of their recommendations because with the number of different newsletters that I receive(almost all that they offer) the number would be far too many to manage. i am a lifetime member and am very pleased with all that they have done. Would I recommend them? Absolutely!!

Total scam. This is the swamps propaganda. The economy is going to crash and the Federal reserve is almost depleted. We've been bankrupt for a century. Credit with nothing to back it? The Federal reserve and the government have been spending it and we've all known that. That's why the world's tripping. They'll do anything to keep us from the details. This, GITMO was prepared.

This so called "research" is a total fraud. You are taking a huge risk if you have ANY dealings with them. Stay away!!!!! It cost me a bunch of money to learn this lesson. Don't get caught in the same trap.

I also ordered the book and ended up being charged for newsletter and membership. I was lucky that I caught mine in time and was able to get mine cancelled . They definitely scare people into buying their junk. I am very concerned that I just finished watching a video about the Blue Wave given by Mr. Brett Aitken, Managing Director, Stansberry Research.

If I had not known better I probably would have believed everything he said and subscribed to his so call reports. This was written before the midterm elections and they did not go as he said they would and what was going to happen will probably never happen but there are so many people out there that will become scared and subscribe to his reports and be taken the advantage of. How can companies get away with these scare tactics?

I wish I could warn people of their underhanded ways of doing business. I was almost a victim and can understand how easy it is to become a victim. It seems the more you get away with just makes it easier to keep getting away with being crooked. Our court system is nothing to brag on . The innocent gets punished and the crooks get rewarded. Please anyone reading this and considering investing in Stansberry Research.

Thank you so much for posting your review. Their marketing emails make them seem legit. I would never have guessed that it would have turned out the way that it did for you. How awful.

When you cancel their service, be sure to get confirmation in writing After cancelling their service my credit card continued to be billed.

I cannot agree with any of the negative comments
October 26, 2018

I cannot agree with any of the negative comments above. From my perspective, the Stansberry organization as a whole, and the individuals with whom I have had contact with, have provided me with outstanding services over at least a decade. I have had significant increases in my "Income Tax" entry due to my association with Stansberry.

The several senior leaders, in the early years, provided the basic learning that kept my head above the water. Calls for assistance on new features, such as "Trailing Stops", were answered in great detail early on. I have never felt that they were ever "screwing" me, even for books. If these people were crying over a $19.00 book, they are in the wrong game.

I have been an Alliance member for about 5 years. I manage all my investments and rely exclusively on Stansberry for research and recommendations. The research is outstanding and I have had excellent results with my investments. Porter and the other analysts also explain how to invest and give great advice on what to do or what not to do.

I just became a Beta user of the Stansberry Terminal and it is awesome!

Sofia December 10, 2018

Any chance that you would be wiling to share the information that you are getting? A lot of the reviews state that they are bogus.

August 22, 2018
Porter Stansberry is an absolute con artist. A $19 book purchase turned into a $149 charge a month later on my credit card for his "investment" newsletter, which doesn't interest me. TOTAL SCAM, stay away!

May 31, 2018
I bought the book and paid attention to the details. I knew I'd be automatically charged for the newsletter if I didn't cancel. The day the book came in, I called and cancelled. It was that easy. So far, the book is informative. Can't comment on the accuracy of any predictions and some of his suggestions are a bit......odd, I guess. If the crap's going to hit the fan, what good is gold? Tobacco, alcohol, even illegal drugs will be more valuable than gold (which nobody would be able to afford). Still, I'm glad I bought the book. Even gladder I cancelled the newsletter subscription before I got billed.

My experience is very bad.

1) I have subscribed True Wealth Systems. I have followed 5 recommendations. Results: 1 gain and 4 losses. The gain was 15% within 3 months. The losses were 1 of about 12% and 3 of about 30% in two years. I think that this is not only bad luck

2) They have a list of recommentations which is updated every working day. Now, if a title is a bad loss, there is only for one day a recommentation to sell it. Then the title disappears from the list. So that the impression from the list is that most recommentations are gains. The losses are suppressed. That is a bad style and I would call it scam.

Total rip off. I bought book in April 2015. Total charge on my card was $49.50. These rip offs then charged my card $99 the next April 2016 for some newsletter. And also in April of 2017 and April 2018. Like many people, we are so busy I never noticed the unauthorized charge of $99 until yesterday. Called them today demanding my $297 back. So a "David L" put on his manager, "Jennifer N " who refused to give me her last name. She said they would only give me back the $99 for the charge of last month, April 2018, but not 2017 or 2016 because I should have seen the emails coming in from Stansberry Research. Bunch of clever B.S. My fault for not reading fine print in every email I get ! I shut down my credit card today and will report them to BBB and other websites. They owe us $198. What a scam : you buy a book with a credit card number and you automatically enroll in some type of newsletter for $99 a year. Who wants to do business with a company like this??? Scam Rip Offs. Period.

Scam H March 13, 2018

I agree. They are absolute shysters! They should be avoided at ALL costs.
