136 ‘Stansberry Research’ Reviews
I ordered just a book for $19.00 and guess what.....they charged my credit card $149.00 the next month. I never did agree to subscribe to their service. What a scam. Also, the book gave few details and was mostly on investing concepts.
The older I get the more stupid I become!
Ordered the book for my husband for $19.00 and nothing more!
Never did I sign up for any membership or Newsletter!
To my utmost surprised I have a charge of $149.00 on my Bank s statement!
Wait till I get through with them! Attorney and all! Daughter in law will take them on she is an Attorney
I spent almost $8,000 for two subscriptions, & no, I wasn't supposed to do tons of research after getting the information. The information was what I paid for. Unfortunately, even if you took action pretty soon after receiving the message you couldn't get in at the recommended price, in this case it was buying puts. I guess if you were doing nothing but sitting with your phone beside a computer you might get in at the recommended price. But very soon after, the put would be out of the advised range. Does anyone else see a problem with this? The seller of the subscription will tell you about the person who made tons of money doing this exact thing....yeah right! I don't think the guy(s) who gave these shysters 5 stars are the morons, I believe I am the moron for believing any of this garbage. What a waste of hard earned dough. I won't bother saying anything about the other service that cost $2,500US but it was no different than the first. And no, you're wrong Mr. 5 star, the information was not the beginning of my research, the information was the result of the so-called expertise that I paid for. Luckily for me I was able to cancel after one year so it only cost me $7,000US. Yeah, you're correct Mr. 5-star, I would've been better off giving my hard-earned to an investor & let him do the work for me. Then I would've made something.
Unable to remove my credit card information from my account with them. They charged me for an additional newsletter subscription without my knowledge. Only discovered it after looking at my bill months later. I asked them how to remove the card info and they did not answer.
Have subscribed to different newsletters over many years, mostly the "entry level" and have had mixed satisfactions from very good to meh. I am an educated investor and have been more interested in the overview than stock shopping which has helped me immensely in terms of strategy. Two things though: ALWAYS get a virtual credit card number from your card company to use when you sign up. That way there can only be one charge allowed and they will have to get in touch with you for any recurring charge. And take a screen shot of your order page and any "fine print" and print that out in case you need to dispute a charge with your credit card company. You will never see that info again if you don't.
Worthless junk don't waste your money on this junk. They will not refund your money back.
Eight year customer. Happy over all. I have made many times more on their suggestions than the cost of the service. Steve Sjuggerud is brilliant and his China Opportunities is up over 25% in the past eight months.
If you do not have the skill set to do your own investing, you shouldn't be buying advice on how to do it. Stansberry Investments is for people with a commitment to monitor and understand their investments and the underlying strategy, in other words, "active investors." If you are not good with any of that, buy a mutual fund or an index fund and become a "passive investor."
Know your limits. Choose wisely.
Beware Consumers! OK so I was foolish and subscribed ONCE! If you do, you cannot get out despite their promise to be able to cancel anytime. I asked to have the service cancelled but instead was charged for a renewal recently which I DID NOT authorize. Can you give less than 1 star in any ratings. This company is obviously a SCAM and using fraudulent practices. STAY AWAY!!!
Be very careful when ordering a book from them. I simply replied to an ad to order a book for $19.00 which included shipping. Although they did a spiel on investment advice, it was notclearutil after I had paid for book (thankfully with AXP) and received an email hat I was also signed up for a recurring $149 a year advisory service. It took two days, multiple unanswered phone calls, three emails to get it cancelled by them. VERY DECEPTIVE!
I've discovered that most unsatisfied people are frauds in themselves. They wish for someone to do all the work for them, even the trades. THAT my friends is a full service brokerage. This company is a newsletter service, they provide information. Is it good? Is it bad? Depends on how lazy you are. If you take any research at face value without any digging of your own, then you are a naÃ¯ve, lazy, fool who will always call others fraudulent. I have been using newsletters (not just stansberry) for years as the beginning of my own research, not the end. You know the saying, "You get out, what you put in," and I am talking about your own diligent hard work. Laziness develops whiners, complainers, and just plain out idiots. As for specifics with this research group, I agree that Dr. Eifrigs newsletters are by far the most reliable upon face value. As for the other, they are just as good IF one is diligent to investigate their advice even further.
I subscribed just today but I can;t get a past word from them so I can log-in.
they gave me a user name: ervinyawn but I need a past word to get loged-in. I've a number of times to call them at the 1-888-262-2693 Tel. No. but they tell me I need to press '1' which I don;t have a '1' available on mu ph. to press then I'm cut off.
I am writing to warn people to stay away from anything this company offers. I tried to cancel a $55 monthly charge for a service I did not order and was told they sent the report to my email. Not ordering it and not expecting it, if they did send it, I probably deleted it thinking it was spam. I then tried to cancel my 2 year subscription and was told they would cancel it if I like but I would receive no refund. Evidently the owner of this business has been in trouble with the Federal Government for his business practices. If he has, the Government should require him to include his history of scams in his advertisments.
I am new to stansberry and so far I'm really impressed with the write ups. I like the full service brokerage program and I have just susbcribe on their "Venture Value" but the fees were kind of hefty for me and I was looking for possible ways to lessen the cost. If someone's interested, I would like to share my "Stansberry Venture Value" membership and split the cost. Send me an email allanstokesg4[email protected] so we can talk more about it.
Did you get your money back, Total Scam, sorry that people have to resort to such a low level to make a living.
I have just read this entire thread. I may need some minor counseling after this. Seriously though this guy is taking all of these peoples money. The few positive post on here are complete BS!
If you take the time to read all of the reviews, everyone that has gotten this product whether good or bad review when they have tried to cancel their subscription they are having tremendous problems just in doing that.
That is the common denominator that you need to pay attention to on this thread. When you are made to feel like you need to consume something out of a feeling of fear.... Need I say more.
