Is Kevin Trudeau's Free Money for Real or a Scam?

Updated on October 15, 2014

Is Kevin Trudeau's Free Money for Real?

Kevin Trudeau's "Free Money" is a current TV Infomercial hosted by Misha Dibono, who plays the role of the surprised average American when she hears what Kevin says. The 30 minute infomercial pitches a new book, "Free Money - They Don't Want You to Know About" by Bestselling author, Kevin Trudeau. Kevin claims Americans can get tens of millions of dollars in free money. Trudeau says there's 4,000 government, state and local programs that give away money to those who apply. Trudeau also claims there's 100,000 private sources of funds that go to US citizens. Apparently, 140 million Americans qualify for these funds. Kevin shows one bill from Congress that gives away about 800 billion dollars over the course of several years. Most people don't know about these funds, but if they apply apparently they can get "free money".

View Kevin Trudeau book titles at, or read on for more information about this product and advertisements.

Trudeau claims the government makes this grant and other money available by way of various bills, but they don't necessarily advertise any of them. They use it politically to say they directed funds to this cause or that, make it public knowledge, and then move on to their next matter on the agenda. So consumer advocate Kevin has researched these various free sources of money to create his latest publication.

What Free Money is About

In Kevin Trudeau's book "Free Money - They Don't Want You to Know About", he gives examples of some of the free funds that are available to the average person. Examples include $9500 to help pay bills, $2800 to pay heating costs and $1200 to help pay your mortgage. Other examples include $800 to buy food, $170 a month for parking, and $3,000 if you volunteer to work in your neighborhood. There's also $4800 to pay "family expenses", $328 to help pay rent and amazingly, $1000 while waiting for some of the other funds you applied for. And for free services, Trudeau mentions there's free dental care, free eyeglasses, free air travel, and free hotel rooms among others.

Kevin also points out Matthew Lesko's series of books about free government money. Lesko is the guy who wears those crazy, colorful suits with all the question marks on his TV advertisements. Kevin stacks up most of Lesko's books on the table such as "Free College & Training Money for Women", "Free Money and Help for Women Entrepreneurs", "Free Legal Help", and "American Benefits for Seniors" to illustrate how concise his book is compared to all the ones Lesko's published. Trudeau says applying for the funds is relatively simple, and his book gives you the best of the information about the free funds you can apply for. Kevin also says he applied for one of these techniques to receive $256 by completing a simple online application, then did another and received over $1500.

Another thing Trudeau discusses is "lost money". These funds come from things such as deceased relatives, mortgages, stocks or IRA's, bank accounts or paychecks. The amazing thing is 140 million people are eligible to apply for all these programs, but usually only 20 million do so. Some of the funds come as quickly as 30 days.

The fine print at the bottom of the infomercial says "Terms and amounts of the grants vary. Eligibility requirements apply". It's listed on the infomercial at a price of $29.95 plus "S&P", and includes free the "Debt Cures" book (a $30 value) and the "Easy $5K Guide", which is about mostly home-based businesses. The Easy $5 K Guide may be similar to the product Jeff Paul's Shortcuts to Internet Millions. The "Free Money" product carries a 30 day money back guarantee according to the advertisement. Kevin says if you haven't received at least $500 in those 30 days you can return the book. Kevin Trudeau's "Free Money" is sold through QSN Direct.

Kevin Trudeau's Free Money Infomercial

Consumer Complaints

While this information presented here is not intended to promote or demote "Free Money", there have been documented complaints regarding Mr. Trudeau's latest product. At this consumer affairs website, more than a few people complain that they tried to order the book "Free Money" and the customer service reps pushed more products on them. These extra products included other books and newsletters. The book supposedly costs $39.99 but once they saw their bill, they had been charged over $93. One woman states the information presented in the book is more for those people who are unemployed or on welfare, rather than the average working person. Buyers beware if you call to order this product from QSN Direct.

Kevin claims he doesn't make a cent off this product and is doing it all as a "public service". He discusses the current dismal state of the economy and says with people losing homes, jobs and their way of life, this book can help them get money to help out. All that said, the choice is really yours to save your hard earned $30 and apply it to bills, or to pay up and purchase Kevin Trudeau's Free Money.

Latest Trudeau Free Money Book


Latest opinion update 2014

The Kevin Trudeau book about free money sources has been updated as of 2014 to include new information. It is still available at the Amazon website, but consumers should proceed with caution before buying products and believing claims made by Mr. Trudeau. At this point, it seems a bit too risky to call him an expert in this sort of advice, so take his words with a grain in salt.

      Most of those government grant programs have extremely low household income requirements and other strings attached. I went through the Lesko book at the library and didn't find one thing to help me. Then I went to the U.S. government site, where alot of that stuff comes from and couldn't find anything either. You can always contact your congressman and senator with questions about grant programs. They are there to help, and most have staffers that are very knowledgeable about programs. But you still have to qualify as to income.

      I bought a book of his from a TV ad. Won't again! Salesperson went through a whole big rigamarole before I could even order it. Finally agreed to sign up for some newsletter that I could cancel - just to get my book. I was charged for the newsletter twice even after I canceled it in time.

      He does have some good information. He also has a lot of scam and seems to be interested mainly in bucks, bucks! I learned the hard way.

I just called customer service to cancel and all I hear is,,,,"Im sorry but we can not pull up your record to cancel however you have 30 days to return the book. That stupid actress pretending to be a sceptical surprised normal person like me kind of did it. It's sad honest and hopeful people that belong back in the June Cleaver days get scamed by deliberate crooked liars. This world is sucky. Im a hairdresser and don't even sell products that don't work, I feel guilty!

      In a different infomercial Kevin Trudeau's "interviewers" are two Playboy models. I'm not sure how seriously anyone can take someone who thinks having Playboy models in the infomercial will help earn credibility. If it were one, viewers might be able to just assume she had ventured into broadcasting as a second career. Two? That's just kind of Hugh Heffner-like and not too "professional" for someone selling a book.

      I too purchased Matthew Lesko's book some time ago and found the info to be untrue. I called several of the programs that I "fit the criteria for" and was told there was no such program. I even sent the organization I called a copy of the page from Matthew's book and was told that no program existed. There may be money out there but I didn't find it through Matthew's book.

      You have to watch Kevin and the likes to learn how they market. These infomercials are running 7 days a week, multiple times a day so they must be making a buck(or more). Plus, this is his third hot subject in about a year, it started with health then debt and now grants. All hot subjects.

      I have never ordered from him, but I tend to belive the the horror stories about the overcharges and think this stinks, borders on illegal. Never the less the infomercials keep coming and people keep buying. I'm confident that if toilet seats are a hot subject in the future he will jump on that too.

      I once took a course on this type of marketing. A perfect product is cheap to create (all of the resources are public domain), is a system or a secret (they don't want you to know), inexpensive to buy (he doesn't make anything off of the book), but has a hook (the book) that generates repeat income, (all of the addons).

      by the way, here is site many states use to locate lost money

      or go to your state treasury dept and search for the term lost money, I really do have 2 checks on the way and my wife has one. ( I found some at the address above (for Ohio) and the rest at WV's state treasury site.

      The government programs are all listed at:

      now send me 29.95 plus s&p ($23.90) for not just one but 2 books (that processing is also an inflated money maker) plus a few extra dollars every month so you can go back to that web page and check again. :)

      I have purchased the Debt Cures book from Kevin and found it helpful with my credit reporting issues. I am a retired police chief and made a decent living while working in law enforcement. Although most infomercials ARE seemingly a scam, I have so far found Kevin's, however outlandish (with Playboy models - which seems bizarre) to be basically sincere. I have been a government employee for over 20 years and know that the government does things which MOST of America know nothing about. The choice is yours to purchase or not, but remember, all of the "extra" crap they try to sell you - all you have to do is say NO!

      Best of luck.

      Guys, at least Kevin is selling a tangible book with some value to it. And he has hot T and A models on his shows. The biggest scam artists out there are Internet Tool Box, Buy Tax Lien Properties, any any foreclosure book which markets to unemployed/low income/bad credit saps. All of these clowns will try to sell you or Jedi Mind trick you weak fools into buying up to $1k of additional products.

      Trudeua's newest book is similar to Keskos book. Kevins other books can be bought off of Amazon and in book stores.

      Tasteless, unprofessional and I think actions speak louder than words. They don't speak properly, SHOCKER, and you might as well put a pole in the room as he discusses his BULLSHIT BOOK (S). But I will say, I would rather look at those pretty girls than that HE used to be a SHE Real Estate person DEAN GRAZIOSI (yes, he used to be a chick) or that GREASY looking scum bag KLEE IRWIN (NAME SAYS IT ALL) that totally looks like a scam artist.

      Good Morning,

      I had bought a many books in my time from different people on many different subjects. I feel this way, if you can get at least one item from a book that can help you in life it is worth it. I had bought a few of Kevin Trudeau's books and found some information important and some that does not help me at all. But look at it this way. Some of the information that I could not use, others could use it. But if I may give a suggestion to anyone wishing to buy books… Don’t do it on the phone as they will try to sell you the kitchen sink…You will be better off buying it online. I hope my insight helps some..

      God Bless,

      $23+ for shipping 3 books. Not overnight for that price but 5-7 weeks! RIP OFF. Why 5-7 weeks? Will they wait with the printing a run of books until they get so many orders? This is a red flag right there. Too good to be true. If the value was really there, he should come out and say up front, $50 including shipping for the books.

      Before reaching 30, Kevin Trudeau was already a twice convicted felon serving time in a Federal penitentiary. He had posed as a doctor to gain credibility with bank officials, deposited $80,000 in fraudulent checks and misappropriated (for personal use) $128,000 from customer credit cards.

      After being released from prison, Trudeau got caught running an illegal pyramid scheme. Under investigation by 18 state Attorney Generals and the U.S. Postal Service, he was stopped from doing business and fined a half million dollars – a drop in the bucket to the millions he had made at the expense of others.

      He then became king of the late night TV infomercials, selling worthless products by playing on people’s hope for a “miracle” cure. By the mid 90’s, he was in trouble again. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) began successfully prosecuting him for fraudulent infomercials ripping off millions of people for millions of dollars.

      Let’s see Trudeau for what he really is – a criminal sociopath without any moral responsibility, conscience or remorse. Sure he’s charming, but don’t let him CON you. Don’t buy his book. Don’t subscribe to his newsletter.

      Those are the facts

      It work's for me 7 years ago

      I have 4 of Kevin's books and I find them easy to read and understand. I have lost 30lb by using the information in Natural Cures and the information about food and drugs is right on. The Debt Cures has helped me with Idenity Thift and other problems we have had, I have just ordered Free Money and can't wait to read it. Like any thing in to days world you can use information that you need and work it to your advangage or you can leve it alone. And every one has there own opinion about things but if you can't get what you want out of one of Kevins books it is not his fault he is just giving you some ways to help your self, you have to do the work. I think his books are grate and if you know what you are doing they will work for you to.

      It's a scam. And when you send it back you only get half the money back because over 20 bucks of the price is shipping cost. There is nothing in the book. The part about the grants is just a link he gives you to a site that has all the grants. SCAM!

If it is free it should be all the way free... Not partially free.. I'm glad I stumble upon this site and comments about the book I almost bought for a book full of headache. Thank You!!!

      I can't believe you people!!! This whole thing plays upon the fact that people are suffering and need money. It plays on the idea that keeps the lottery running and makes you put your lost tooth under the pillow for the tooth fairy. If any of this stuff really worked, there would only be one weight control product, and everyone would be skinny. There would only be one weight loss machine and everyone would be fit. Buying a weight machine? Better measure it and make sure there's room in the garage for it, along with the other yard sale stuff. Don't order those dietary supplements from the South American Rainforest. They cut down the trees and plants so you can be more vibrant, then they charge you a huge shipping and handling fee, and ship you additional product, charging your account without your permission (woops.....remember when you clicked on "I agree"? ) You, of course read all those rules and regulations. How does it feel to get screwed twelve different ways by scoundrels selling you monkey piss in a pretty pill while absconding with all your personel information, and stuffing their "off shore" coffers with money furnished by the incredibly lame of brain. Nigeria makes 5 billion a year off those stupid Nigerian scam letters. The scammers have no education, and don't know how to do anything else. Maybe, we honest not Republicans..... will one day rise up and put an end to those who prey on the stupid, the lazy and the greedy. Why would you buy anything from an infomercial. Doesn't the fact that the product isn't available in stores set off some alarm bells. It's because whatever it is, it is pure crap. That's why they can give you 2 for the price of one or include all those free gifts.............if you act within the next seven minutes for this one of a kind offer. Don't buy lottery tickets. Send me the money instead. I will prepare a beautiful unframed 8 1/2 X 11 poster featuring your name and the cuneiform renderings of the word "Loser" from ancient Egyptian scrolls that were never discovered. I pay @.47 letter postage at the Post Office. You pay shipping & handling of $37.00. Oh, you noticed the difference? What do I care? I'm ripping you off and enjoying every minute of it. My goodness, are you stupid.

      Kevin Trudeau's debt cures book I purchased and read it and it had some really helpful information in it, I have not heard much about his free money one yet but there are alot of similar books out like Matthew Lesko Free money books on accessing government business grants, loan money, free government money club, he lists tons of sites and resources too!

      I have Kevin Trudeau's memory course - It's pretty good.

      I have Kevin Trudeau's Weight Loss Cure - It's pretty bad.

      It's an interesting read but would be impossible to follow. You have to be injected by some substance made from pregnant woman's urine. It's illegal in this country to prescribe it so you would have to fly out of this country to get a doctor to prescribe it.

      The weight loss cure protocols would be extremely difficult (if not impossible) to follow... No microwaving, organic food only and about 20 other things difficult to maintain.

      I saw an interview Kevin did with John Stossel on TV . Kevin tried to evade John's questions but John nailed him in a big fat lie. Kevin has been in trouble with the law before and has done prison time. I wouldn't trust him.

      My guess is it's the same info you can get from Matthew Lesko packaged in a new wrapper. Save your money!

      This is another ripoff by Trudeau. He tries to get you to buy other items when you order the book. The book is full of info found for free in other books and on the internet. It is junk. By the way, the free sites on gov. grants costs from $50 to $80 A MONTH to get the FREE info. It is a ripoff from start to finish. I got burned, should have known better.

      My hubby bought the book...I read the thing from cover to cover and found nothing I didn't already know from searching the internet myself. The only good thing I have to say about the book is it could save some time. The book does list several websites you would spend some time looking for before you did find them. Not worth the money in my opinion.

      The irony of it all is...Kevin Trudeau is just like all the people who buy any of his books--looking for the easy way out. He prays on the naïve nature of unsuspecting people who just want simple answers to difficult questions. People need to realize there's always a simple answer, but the simple answers are free if you spend the time to look for them. You may learn things in his books that you didn't know, but that doesn't mean they are things you shouldn't have known or couldn't have learned without paying for them.

      He plays the percentages game..If he only gets a one half percent of the people who view his infomercial to buy a single book..then he's probably making millions of dollars off that product. Also, anybody who tells you they work for free is a liar..Trust your gut..If it sounds to good to be true than it probably isn't!

      Its funny how many people just seem to want to bash somebody cause they have served time. Everybody only wants to focus on the negative and not the positive.

      Yes he is a about 60% of America..probably more so, they just don't get caught ;)

      He also founded the International Pool Tour which has the largest purses in any billiards tourneys.

      Its true most of his information he puts in his latest books can be found for free if you people wouldn't be so lazy, what he is doing is putting the information out there to people who wouldn't normally know about it as well as making some money at the same time..its called GOOD BUSINESS.

      For the people that complain about the women he has on his infomercials, sure its in poor taste..but it got you to remember who he is..and lets face are just a lil jealous =D

      Anyways enough of my madness..for you old timers and ignorant people that don't know..YES..there is such thing as free money, i have gotten free money just for being a student..its called a grant, also money from a class action suit..sure it wasn't much..but it didn't cost me a dime..

      This guy has supposedly sold 30 million books! PT Barnum said it best. "There's a sucker born every minute". People are quite fortunate if all they ever get taken for in life is about 30 bucks. I suspect that is not all they get hit up for as they go through this life. An acquaintance says he knows Trudeau and that he lives like a king.

      Has anyone ever got there money back? Guarantee says if you cannot find $500.00 in 30 days you get your money back. So many bad reviews does make you leary of buying. Someone also said they only ordered the one book, got two free, but before it was over, their card was charged 90.00 some dollars. Right before you click on order, make sure you have nothing checked in real small print. That' where it says, future mailings, newsletters, bla bla. Ofcourse it's small print, they do not want you to know you just joined something and have monthly billings.

      Kevin doesn't have one ounce of honesty. I did see him pick up a piece of paper on the sidewalk, so I thought maybe he did that as a public service, then I later found out is was a dollar bill. Why would you want to buy a book from this idiot? If you get burned once don't stick your hand back in the fire. I bought the health cures and found it useless. I bought it in a book store, but it was still some expensive toilet paper, about 20.00 worth. I'm glad I didn't buy it from my phone. It would have been 3 times that much. I wish people would wake up. He will come up with more after this, why would you think; well this may be worth throwing my money away. Always keep this in mind; his motive is to get rich off stupid people, plain and simple. He is the traveling salesman during the old west selling the snake oil. I wish the government would lock him up and throw away the key, and to all the people he has ripped off could claim his estate, maybe a vacation spot get-a way. Of course you'd have to get in a very long line to stay there for a couple of days. Gary

      I feel very fortunate that God has made me so unlike the majority of the population on this planet at least in America; in that I know how to think for myself. I ordered Kevin's natural cures book in 2006 and I have really changed a lot since then. For one thing, most people don't want to change anything personally, yet they "wish" their life would change...CRAZY! I have lost 70 pounds since I first started doing some of the things Kevin mentions in his book. I have more energy...I now wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning..I've started my own mind is a lot clearer. I think people are way too quick to judge others when they themselves have issues too. It's like people love to say: "at least I'm not like HIM".. I believe people can is in our nature to grow...I believe God made us that way. I know it's possible because I have experienced it first-hand in my own life. I also believe the government is very corrupt and that they do a lot of things they don't want us to know about...and that included giving away free money. A lot of people live by sayings that were passed down from their ancesters..people who lived through the great depression and similar economic circumstances...people who had a poverty mind-set..and they will not take the time to use their own mind and creativity to come up with original thought. For the past three years I have been trying to help my family and friends by sharing some of the information I found in Kevin's book...but have been rejected and laughed well as ignored. So I decided I would just keep doing the things that have been working so well for me and that maybe one day I will meet other individuals who I could have intelligent conversations with about health and wealth. I myself committed a felony when I was younger...but I am a totally different person now. I have repented for that...which means I changed my mind. I myself only want to help people know the truth. We have all been brainwashed into believing a whole grave full of LIES...I have been fortunate to read many good books since I woke up and began working on myself. One of those books is called The Trick to Money is Having Some by Stuart Wilde. And he talks about free money too. I know there is free money out there so for all of you who want to piggy-back on other people's comments without checking things out for yourself..I thank you because that just means there more health and wealth out there for people like myself who can see and hear the TRUTH.

I suspect many of his online defenders are paid. All of the comments seem scripted. Why would anyone take the word of a convicted fraudster who believes there is a plot to exterminate some segments of human society? Trudeau is insane and anyone who believes him is either incredibly gullible or just plain stupid.

      I can't speak of Trudeau's wealth books because I haven't purchased them but his Natural Cures books are both very informative and filled with truths. If you are a person who is open to "alternative or natural" medicine then you will find his books to be accurate. Sure, he is out to make money but who isn't??? I used several websites he mentioned in his books and as a result I have great products that acutually work. If you can't find good practical health tips and great products in his two books on Natural Cures then you either can't read or have been to damn lazy to follow through! If his book on Debt Cures & Free Money are like his health books than it might be worth it but I again I can't say.

      Well, guys? You CAN wait until the book is offered locally you know - sheesh! I bought it at Costco warehouse fgs.

      One piece of info in Debt Cures made the book price MORE than worthwhile. As an average American who has lived through the LAST governent FUBAR'ed econimic crisis and had to file bankruptcy as a result, man! that's HARSH!, well knowing that my credit is NO LONGER piggybacked onto my husband's is worth the book price.

      Women - get out there and get your own credit. DO NOT depend on your husband's any longer - good or bad you are not counted on his anymore.

      Parents - you need to know this too. Only the first authorized person on an account counts anymore, so don't think you can help your kids out this way - get them educated on good credit and why.

      And people, start thinking outside your boxes to find different ways to do things and STOP ranting and raving just because you feel powerless. Been there, done that, the only way to get above it is to DO something. Turn off the televisions, stop partying on the weekends and dig into your OWN life to make it better.

      The MegaMemory course actually was good. There was some good info in Debt cures for people that didn't know any better, and as another said, if you learned one thing you honestly didn't know it is worth the cost. But bashing Lesko? PLEASE. The reason the books are so big is it's a REFERENCE book. Lesko himself said on an audio cd you can find it too if you look hard enough, and find things that aren't even in his book. Lesko is goofy but is legit. This is like government grant 101 or maybe college prep. The other stuff Trudeau sells are total rip-offs. Yeah, wait and get it in a bookstore, paperback. Another bit of free advice: If you are even thinking of starting ANY type of business or non-profit, ask your city council or county commission (or local Chamber of Commerce) about courses on securing government contracts. I'm going to one next Friday.

      These books and others like it are a waste of money when most if not all information in them isn't helpful or just not helpful to YOU. However, it's still worth checking out just in case there is something that will work for you. Fortunately, most of Trudeau's books, as well as, other, similar books from authors such as Lesko, are available at your local library (if not they can order them for you). Check it out ... it's worth a shot, right?

      I purchased Kevin's Free Money book and found it completely useless!! It is a SCAM!! Not only could a child have wrote it and there would have been more truth to it, but all the sites he list expect you to pay out more money! He specifically said on his commercial that they wouldn't do that. Therefore he LIED! Then the shipping is so expensive it is almost the cost of the book! Then when you call the company to get the refund you were promised, you are treated very poorly! The customer service people and their MANAGEMENT is extremely rude, not helpful and even hangs up on you! I was very polite, yet I wanted answers and the manager hung up on me when I asked my questions! I was shocked at such vile behavior!! Please, take it from me and DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Tell all you know about your experiences so they don't fall victim to this terrible scam! I am. I feel as hard-working consumers, we should watch out for each other and prevent people like this from STEALING our money. I don't know how he sleeps at night!!!

      I had allopecia an all my hair was falling off... NO! kevin didn't give me a specific cure but i did learn from him, what is the cause of disease and started detoxing my body from cigarettes, fast food and just a few thing that made sence to me, and guess what? my hair grew back, not only that,i stoped catching a flu so easy like before, i only been sick once in the past year and a half.

      His books don't make miracles especially if you don't change your bad habits..... say what ever you want about kevin trudeau but he really helped me! you people have a closed mind, don't you see the fda and prescription drugs are really killing us just like kevin says on his book! the list is huge, anna nicole smith, michael jackson, dj am and so many other people.

      I haven't read the "free money" but heck yeah im going to read it... stop being a follower and read the damn book and find out for your self! i am not going to pay $30 over the phone either, but im not going to sit hear to talk crap about kevin when i haven't even read the damn book.

      Im not saying to trust every kevin says, but im sure you close minded ignorant people could learn a few helpful things from him.. ***I GOT MY HAIR BACK AND I DON'T GET SICK LIKE BEFORE, ISN'T THAT PRICELESS?

      My Thoughts..... 7 years ago

      Oh...just an FYI,

      Trudeau was convicted of fraud and larceny back in the 90's. So ask yourself again, is he really trying to help the public or help himself?Let's be real, I do not blame the guy for wanting to make a dollar. But the program is misleading because it does not label out and describe the specifics to receiving funds. Most

      Kevin is very careful not to disclose the particulars and eligibility requirements for receiving the money.In fact it states that in fine print at the bottom of the screen.

      So...technically ..he is not lying. However, most of us would probably not buy the book if we knew the details and the eligibility requirements. The money return policy may be legit and work...but most "folks" will not take the time to go after the refund. And that's what Kevin is counting on and that is how he profits from this book.

I previously purchased, "Natural Cures...," and the information was extremely informative and life saving. I followed his advise regarding organic food consumption and lost weight. Although I have successfully lost 80+ pounds, I would give all the praises to, "Natural Cures." I am an organic consumer, but I working out and utilizing portion control are huge factors in weight lose. However, consuming organic foods helps one refrain from HFCS and MSG.

      I just had to research grants for an e book and I can tell everyone that without a doubt Trudeau's 'information' is fraudulent. Grants are few and far between and are usually for very specific purposes. Trudeau is a well known con man without a shred of conscience. The FTC needs to take this sociopath down and seize all of his assets for consumer redress to those Trudeau has defrauded. He is now trying to pass himself off as an expert on 'secret societies' and has teamed up with whack a loon Alex Jones. I guess his new book will be titled--'Tin Foil Hat Styles 'They' Don't Want You to Know About.' Also it is well known that many comments supporting Trudeau on blogs are paid.

      I've used Kevins book Natural Cures to great advantage. I don't care that hes a sleazy salesperson type. That Natural Cures book offered me great information that I still use today. It was accurate, informative, practical, easy to read and very useful in my everyday life.

      The Free Money book is not for me. I realize its targeted for lower income people, in general, to take advantage of gov't programs. However, there is some other information my friend used to find lost money he had forgotten all about. It showed up on one of the websites in his particular state.

      Bottom line is YES, he does this to make $$$. To establish some integrity, he should disclose who can benefit from this book and not pretend its a panacea for all. But, thats what shameless salespeople do.

      Let the buyer beware..but also realize there sometimes is extremely useful info you can receive from books such as these. Just do your homework first

      After serving time for criminal activity in the early 1990s, Trudeau partnered with his former colleague to join Nutrition for Life, a multi-level marketing firm, where they were very successful. He and his partner were sued by the Illinois Attorney General for running a pyramid scheme. Trudeau and his company entered into a settlement with Illinois and seven other states for $185,000.

      In 1990, Trudeau posed as a doctor in order to deposit $80,000 in false checks, and in 1991 he pleaded guilty to larceny. Trudeau had used the credit cards of eleven customers of a mega memory product to fraudulently charge approximately $122,735.68.[21] He spent two years in federal prison because of this conviction (Choi, 2005). Later, in his book Natural Cures, Trudeau claimed that he has since learned from his experience, and is now motivated to help people rather than merely make money for himself.

      I only have this to say - I saw Kevin's infomercial, one day during the summer. I said, "what the He@@." I went to the site for "lost money". Lo and behold my father's name was listed there. My father died 10 years ago. I put in my claim with the state of Texas. The state not only contacted me by email but sent me a letter requesting information from me. On November 5, 2009 I received a check for $1124.36. This check was $300.00 larger than I was told it would be.

      Thanks to Kevin's advice I now have funds to cover my finances through the holiday season.

      No, I didn't by the book. Yes, several of you are right about who qualifies for government money, but now at least you know that there are monies available for some of us. Use the information to your advantage. Help others that you know who "do" qualify for these loans.

      Keep in mind that many of the comments supporting Trudeau are paid. Trudeau is a classic sociopath and is only interested in your money and how many times he can hit your credit card before you notice. He belongs in prison and all his assets should be seized and distributed among his many victims. ANYTHING connected with Trudeau is a scam!!

      You people are fools. Trudeau is a successful capitalist selling books. Nothing illegal about that. So he's selling public domain info that has been previously published many times by many others others. It's YOUR choice to purchase or not. The real sociopaths are in Washington taking away all your Constitutional rights and turning this country of capitalism and free religeon into a bastard of socialism. If you put as much time researching your presidential and congressional candidates, BEFORE you vote, as you put into researching people like Trudeau, this country wouldn't be falling apart in front of our eyes!

      So he's got a criminal past. So what! Why does that matter for a guy selling a book and NOT for the President and Congress???? If people voted smartly and kept the lying, socialist thieves out of office, you wouldn't need to buy a book on how to find free money anyway! Nothing different between Trudeau's infomercials and Obama's Campaign. Just a bunch of empty lies designed to sucker you into giving them what they want (Trudeau - money) (Obama - votes).

      Kevin Trudeau is just what the government said he is, a liar and a crook, and why he isn’t back in prison, I will never no. Please I caution anybody looking to do business with him, you are in for a surprise and you will get taken, I promise you. As for as this free money BS he’s spewing now, well there are many things he just simply don’t tell you. If you follow his advise trying to get free money, well you won’t believe what it will eventually cost you. Please people don’t be a fool!, check out this man’s background from 1990 to 2008 the government is still after him, he just can tell the truth about anything. Don’t buy anything from this man regardless what these stupid infomercials tell you.

      My husband bought some books from him and the customer service made him sign up for some magazines and his newsletter. He bought Priority Mail shipping so that they would get here in time for Christmas. It was about 6 weeks before we finally got the books, and it was such a hassle to try to cancel the magazine and newsletter subscriptions. If I were to purchase any of his books, I would go through or look at some thrift stores or libraries.

If you are of the belief that you deserve to get something for nothing (like many who play the stock market), or you think hard work is of no use, or honor in today's society, then buy his book! Right now! Kevin is simply of these disiplines, and if you are too, he will not be the last one to rip you off!

      Mr. Jaytrain 7 years ago

      I believe some of you people to be clueless morons, while others of you must be shills of Mr. Trudeau's. Why would you EVER call an infomercial phone number and give your credit card or banking account info to someone you have no control over? You're just asking for trouble. Here's some advice, also. Whenever a TV ad says "not available in stores" (as Trudeau's does), BEWARE!! They may give you a "money back guarantee", but, if you can't return the crap you bought to a fixed location (i.e. a bookstore) for an instant refund, you may never get your hard-earned money back. The huckster will probably be (back) in prison before you get a refund. Also, you might want to wait for it to get to a public library to review it, as pointed out by others. If you order this kind of stuff, approach it like you would approach a gambling establishment. Determine just how much money you can afford to lose before you venture forth intrepidly. And beware of the possibility of identity theft. That's a REAL bummer!! Listen; if the gummint has money to give you, don't you think that the info would be available by some other means than by buying KT's silly-ass book (like on-line)? What the authorities ought to be doing is putting creeps like him out of business, for good! You might want to ask yourself why they aren't, or why they are so slow and deliberate about it. Now, THAT would make for some good reading! And before I exit, please be aware of the old saying: "There is no free lunch."

      I listened to infomercial & was gullible enough to believe & ordered. I felt a sinking feeling after I gave all my details... when the sales pitch from the little girl who answered the phn kept trying to get me to order other products. She was as relentless as is his infomercial. I told her "never mind, I don't want any of this."

      We were disconnected?! Called back and was told there was no order pending for me.

      A wk later the books (2) came in the mail and my account was charged $158! I tried to call that number and was given typical routine of getting money back! I thumbed through the book and found I already knew about "lost money" Like gypsy 01 says above, in TX go to " "

      Also called the phn# ME gave from comment: 502-565-1321

      I called it. Some little cranky old lady (older than me) gave me a lecture that told she knows him! In the end she said, "He doesn't live here!" and hung up! I think it was his Mum. I feel bad now that I called her. Not her worry.

      I was naïve and feel silly without reading all the punishments from above. Scot says it like it is. Melissa is the smartest of all the comments above! All the information is available without getting this book - just look! No quick schemes out there folks. Even he leaves out some of the ways to make money and free at that!

      Listening to SUZE ORMAN is much more profitable. There are NO quick fixes.

      He said we can be reimbursed if its not what we want. That will be my next step & I will return here to let you know how that worked out.

      Much luck to you all & May God Bless You and Yours during this holiday Season.

      Thanks, Hub! I appreciate the detailed information and a light shed on this book. I've ordered a couple of Kevin's books and they were a great gift, but I too was pushed other products. I said, "No" to other products and I was still charged for a so-called monthly news letter that I never read. It was a pain trying to get a refund. I had to call twice within a 6 month period and was only able to get 2 months refunded. That's not really fair when I never ordered the darn newsletter. Not only that, but the customer service representative made it seem like it was my fault that they could not refund any more of my monies...WT?! Are you serious? I never ordered it, so it's my fault? Some companies need to look at the consumers point of view, if it weren't for us they would not be in business.

      hello and im not against infomercials but rather people lying on them.i read smart and i mean vauable insight and even threats made against kevin.anyways im thinking hes an absolute good guy on 1 side and a fraudster on the next!hes out to profit and dislikes agencies making obscenely profits yet hes all about the blank can you say you're opposed to the credit card companies overcharging and secretly charging when you do the same thing?as for the book use a credit card and only pay the $30 asked origininally!and don't buy extras as everything was supposed to be in the book.and the so called free money sites want at least a $3 fee roughly or more and your credit card information.guess what?i don't have a credit card i cant gain ACCESS TO MY MONEY sadly to say.anyways kevin is a big hypocrite but he does seem to have at least a fleeting passion for helping folks help themselves and himself to make millions.hes just a common scammer otherwise and no ill not stutter it.i wonder why some will call in fake testimonies to his show perhaps anyways its done or at his websites too maybe.they are accessories with him and too are guilty.he utilizes this to make millions and everyone including myself wants to check out his book.its garbage im thinking in most ways and hellpful in only a few im sure now.but i still want to see what the hypes all about.sure he recycles and regurgitates public resources and he scams as opposed to real working 9-5.he always says things like,it was the president of the bank that said or it was the corporation that told him,or the guys backstage made money.he seems to be a huge show off like i once was but its trivial now and he seems to be doing the don lapre-meets jeff paul girl thing.jeffs an awful scammer im told countless times as is anthony morrisson im hearing 100s of xs and dean grazzio whoever said this remark in these postings isn't a woman in a past life and nowq a guy you big bozo lol!actually i once thought and still do think that myself.he does remind me of scott baio however but im confident he probably is a guy and is honest but hes out to capitalize off our feebleness too.they all are and so would you,so would anyone and so would i too,right?wrong as id not lie,deceive,defraud,steal,misrepresent,overcharge whatsoever or at least not on purpose w/o explaining myself and offer refunds.lastly has anyone as i read repeatedly gotten the $500 in 30 days he guarantees?seems like its a sales pitch at best destined to possibly fail but its available free and nope we don't need a conman telling us this stale news!watch out for tv sellers esp crooked ones who want your cash and read the book free at libraries,etc!

      There are so many stupid people. I got Leskos books at the library. Learned a bit. I got Natural Cures at a thrift shop, worth every bit of the $2. Made a lot of sense, and the stuff I used has been a big help. If I use more, it will help. Borrowed a copy of his debt cures, not only helped my credit, but has helped friends and family. I will get his other books, but not thru the phone or internet, or at full price, or by giving out my info on either. I pay cash, on the spot. Most of you who bash him are just tdl to do the research or the work. As far as being a felon, so what? He isn't making money off of me. It is the felons in our government that bother me. Most of you have supported a felon for office. As far as paid testimonials, how do I know? I would bet tho, that there would be one from someone saying that they got their refund. None of those. If I was the kind to buy books at the new price, in a store, I would think his books were worth the price. But, I don't operate that way. So he makes money. All I care about is what is in his books, and in Natural Cures, and Debt Cures, there is so much that is legit and useful. To those in need and with a willingness to do the actual work. Is he a con man? I don't care. Enough problems to worry about. At least his info can help solve a lot of those problems. I am not saying to give him any money. I am saying his some of his info is useful, and should be used.

      I own three of KTs books and haven't had a problem with them. I had to sit through about 15 minutes of some lady trying to sell me some other crap and asking me questions, but in the end I got what I called for... a book.

      Some of the stuff in his books is a little outlandish at times. He does seem a little of the conspiracy theorist type that lets his imagination get the best of him at times, but overall he is pretty smart. He does his research, and then presents it to the masses.

      Even if you feel like you're being a bit scammed, or know for a fact that you were, use that as a learning experience. Remember though, do your own research... do your homework on anything that you see that seems interesting to you. If a bunch of people say it sucks, then don't go through with it. Or try it out for yourself and see if it sucks for you.

When the book got here and before giving it to the friend since I paid for I decided to read it I'm only have way through it, some of the stuff in there is usable it's not for all situations but you can use it as a guild line for some things. Actually all the stuff he states in this book if you know ho WEB search the web good you can find it there.

      I was living on the street and dying from full blown AIDS, when I saw one of Kevin's infomercials playing on TV at my favorite liquor store. After selling all of the cans in my shopping cart I called the number in the infomercial and bought Kevin's free money book and got his natural cures book free.

      On page 236 of the natural cures book, Kevin said converting to Scientology would cure AIDs, so I converted and in 2 days my virus was gone.

      In the free money book, Kevin mentioned a $1,000 dollar grant for crack head bums on page 337, so I applied and received the money. After spending the grant money to join Kevin's Global Information Network, I became a millionaire in several weeks.

      Lesko & Trudeau make big bux selling your names, Emails, (Probably CCard #'s too -try to use "Pay Pal?" They do not accept it.) Also, they start with $29; Shipping & handling is $12, - - - and within 90 daysyou WILL have about $97 on your card. Note that in several States, at $100 or more, misdemeaors turn into felonies.

      FYI, if you ever bought an Rx from CVS or MedCo with a check or CCard - check your accounts, they overbill a little at a time; right to $200, but not over. Does anyone know what happens at $200 or more? I assume they have to report it or refund it. I stopped pmt on CVS running unauthorized account transfers(I just paid once w/ my check) - so now they do charges less than the cost of the "stop-pmt" fee. They scramble orders to hide this too. You refill 3; they charge for 2, then charge all 3 a few days later, at minimum wage, you'll spend $400 in time to correct it, and they start again next month.

      I have read most of the posts in this website about Kevin Trudeau. Most of them are just saying "scam" without even having bought the book. Just wondering how you could possibly say "scam" about the book without having bought it and tried. In my opinion, you can only justly say something is as "scam" if you have actually bought the book, tried some of the techniques and then found out that they really do not work. No, I do not work for Kevin. Just putting some logic instead of emotion into these comments.

      I have not read this book, although I am looking for it, but my comment is about some above comments particularly one. It has been said that the programs in this book "have extremely low household income requirements"... well most people I know would qualify for that, lol. The economy in my city is so bad that teachers are at the local Labor Ready looking for work... 200 people show up in the morning and even at a temp labor service only 2 or 3 people get work on a daily basis and then sometimes only 4-6 hours of work, So if this book does work for those people then it is gong to benefit someone. If you have even a part time job at a gas station in the U.S. then you should consider yourself extremely lucky, but prepare yourself for even worse times/

      Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About

      Main article: Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About

      In the self-published book, Trudeau claims that there are "all-natural" cures for serious illnesses, including cancer, herpes, arthritis, AIDS, acid reflux disease, various phobias, obesity, multiple sclerosis, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, attention deficit disorder, and muscular dystrophy, and that these cures (which include apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, consuming dietary supplements, such as calcium, eating organic food, cleanses and detoxification, such as colonic irrigation, use of a rebounder, colloidial silver, Dianetics (a practice of Scientology) and a host of other treatments, are being deliberately hidden from the public of the United States in order to protect the profits of drug companies. The book itself does not contain all of the "cures" it claims to address, instead directing readers to Trudeau's subscription-only website. Among his claims are that sunscreen, not ultraviolet radiation, cause cancer, that antiperspirants and deodorants contain poisons, that AIDS is a hoax and that chemotherapy is more dangerous than cancer.[10]

      The consumer protection website Quackwatch analyzed a transcript of the infomercial used to sell the book and demonstrated the wide variety of fraudulent and misleading claims made by Trudeau.[11] Other doctors have expressed serious concerns about the book's instructions, such as stopping all medication and refusing vaccinations. Some of the claims in the book are not true, such as the claim for a "natural cure" for diabetes that was researched at the University of Calgary - which the university denies.[10]

      The New York State Consumer Protection Board issued a 2005 warning that the book contains no actual cures, merely pages of speculation. The Board also stated that consumers have complained that the book is merely an advertisement for Trudeau's website and newsletter, at a cost of $71 per month. The book also contains a dustcover endorsement from former FDA commissioner Herbert Ley, who died several years before the book was published. A spokesperson for the Board stated that "The hypocrisy surrounding this book and its advertisements is galling because people with real illnesses are being misled...This book and its marketing machine are a cynical attempt by Mr. Trudeau to cash in on his legal troubles with the federal government."[12] Another posting by the Board stated that Trudeau was selling the information provided by those who order the book to junk mailers, telemarketers and other direct marketers. Trudeau's website lacks a privacy policy, and thus customers are not made aware of Trudeau's use of their information. Customers have also reported being charged $71 per month without their consent for Trudeau's newsletter, as well as problems with refunds, and only being able to access Trudeau's company for a refund through a long-distance call rather than the toll-free line used to purchase products.[13]

      More Natural "Cures" Revealed

      In May 2006, Trudeau self-published More Natural "Cures" Revealed: Previously Censored Brand Name Products That Cure Disease. This less-publicized book responded to aforementioned complaints that its earlier version did not actually contain any cures but instead pointed consumers to his subscription website. In More Natural "Cures" Revealed, Trudeau describes workers at the FDA and FTC as Nazis who want to censor him and burn his books. In his review of the book for science writer Christopher Wanjek described this as "a fascinating cross between a health book, fictitious novel, and a paranoid, hate-filled rant along the lines of 'Mein Kampf.'"[14]

      The online consumer watchdog group has received many complaints about the book.[17] Additionally, the FTC has filed a contempt-of-court action against Trudeau alleging that the alleged misrepresentations in the book violate a 2004 consent order.[18][19]

      The Money-Making Secrets "They" Don't Want You to Know About

      Published in 2009, the book claims to give tools on how to use the Law of Attraction to manifest your desires. The book also claims to contain key links to using the Law of Attraction that are allegedly missing in other publications. Among many of the claims made in the book's infomercial, is Kevin Trudeau's assertion to have virtually flunked out of high school. That claim contrasts strongly with the fact that he was voted "Most Likely to Succeed" by the class of 1981 (see the Early life section above). He also claims to have been "taken in" by a mysterious group called "The Brotherhood" that taught him the secrets that he is now widely announcing in his book. There is also an invitation at the conclusion of the series to a "Global Information Network" which is claimed to be an exclusive private group of very successful individuals and leaders (not to be confused with the news organization of the same name).[21]

      Media 7 years ago

      Trudeau has been interviewed by CNN's Paula Zahn,[22] Matt Lauer of NBC's Today Show, and Harry Smith of CBS's The Early Show.[23] Trudeau was also the subject of investigative reports done by Inside Edition,[24] ABC's 20/20[25] and Dateline NBC.[26] The 20/20 segment highlighted a Nightline interview with Jake Tapper in which Trudeau evaded a variety of questions about his activities and involvement with the government - misrepresenting the money he was forced to pay to the government, the charges filed against them and the reason the government did not follow-through with charges, and claiming ignorance when the claims made in his book were called false by Tapper.[25]

      During interviews, Trudeau has often said that the television program in which he is being interviewed is "owned" by the drug companies. This frequently happens when a statement by Trudeau is refuted as being untrue, such as his statements that the FTC could find no wrongdoing in any case brought against him. In some cases Trudeau has told his supporters, via his newsletters, that he has been "attacked" on a particular program or by a particular interviewer.

      Infomercial 7 years ago

      Trudeau was one of the most prolific producers of infomercials. He stipulated to an FTC ban applying to everything except publications that the FTC concluded would infringe upon his First Amendment rights. All of his recent infomercials advertise his books Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You To Know About (there were at least five different versions of that infomercial, airing in 2004 and 2005) and The Weight Loss Cure. Notable co-hosts have included Leigh Valentine (former wife of fraudulent televangelist Robert Tilton)[27][28][29] and the late Tammy Faye Messner (ex-wife of TV preacher Jim Bakker).

      In his infomercial for Debt Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About, he mentions the book is not available in stores yet, but he has two "live callers" that thank him and claim that his book has helped them reduce their debt and lower their credit card interest rate.

His promotion of memory-enhancing products was stopped by the intervention of the Federal Trade Commission which had determined that the claims made by Trudeau were false and programs involved would not enable users to achieve a "photographic memory", as the advertising claimed.[33]

      Criminal history and legal proceeding 7 years ago

      In connection with his promotional activities he has had a felony conviction and has been an unsuccessful defendant in several Federal Trade Commission (FTC) lawsuits.[39][40][41][42][43] Trudeau has been charged several times by agencies of the United States government for making claims without evidence. In these cases Trudeau signed a consent decree in which he did not plead guilty but did agree to stop making the claims and to pay a fine. Trudeau subsequently began to sell books, which are protected by the First Amendment and which he thus cannot be prevented from publishing.[25] His change of modus operandi as been explained thus:

      "Certainly pitchman Kevin Trudeau learned this lesson years ago. After serving a 2-year federal prison sentence for credit card fraud he changed course. He's since made far more money stealing from the gullible using phony self-help programs and books than he ever did as a common forger... Kevin learned a valuable lesson: outright stealing--doing things like forging checks and stealing credit card numbers might get you locked up--but dressing up a pyramid scheme to look like a legitimate business will probably only get you sued."[44]

      Trudeau was convicted of fraud and larceny in the early 1990s.[45] The FTC has sued him repeatedly and keeps an extensive record of its conflicts with him.[46] A court order currently restricts his ability to promote and sell any product or service; however, he is permitted to promote books and other publications due to free-speech protection under the First Amendment as long as they are not used to promote or sell products or services and do not contain misrepresentations.[7][8] On November 19, 2007, a court found Trudeau in contempt of that court order for making what they consider deceptive claims about his book The Weight Loss Cure "They" Don't Want You to Know About.[47][48] In August 2008, he was fined more than $5 million[49] and banned from infomercials for three years for continuing to make fraudulent claims pertaining to the book. The amount of the money damages was later increased to $37 million.[50]

      1990-1991: Larceny and credit card fraud 7 years ago

      In 1990, Trudeau posed as a doctor in order to deposit $80,000 in false checks, and in 1991 he pleaded guilty to larceny. Trudeau had used the credit cards of eleven customers of a mega memory product to fraudulently charge approximately $122,735.68.[51] He spent two years in federal prison because of this conviction (Choi, 2005). Later, in his book Natural Cures, Trudeau claimed that he has since learned from his experience, and is now motivated to help people rather than merely make money for himself.[3]

      1996: SEC and various states

      Trudeau began working for Nutrition For Life, a multi-level marketing program, in the mid-1990s. In 1996, his recruitment practices were cited by the states of Illinois and Michigan, as well as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Illinois sued Trudeau and Jules Leib, his partner, accusing them of operating an illegal pyramid scheme. They settled with Illinois and seven other states for $185,000 after agreeing to change their tactics. Michigan forbade him from operating in the state.[3][4][5][6] A class action lawsuit was filed by stockholders of Nutrition for Life for violations of Texas law, including misrepresenting and/or omitting material information about Nutrition for Life International, Inc.'s business. In August 1997, the company paid $2 million in cash to common stockholders and holders of warrants during the class period to settle the case. The company also paid the plaintiffs' attorney fees of $600,000.[52]

These infomercials included "Hair Farming," "Mega Memory System," "Addiction Breaking System," "Action Reading," "Eden's Secret," and "Mega Reading."[53][33] The products included a "hair farming system" that was supposed to "finally end baldness in the human race," and "a breakthrough that in 60 seconds can eliminate" addictions, discovered when a certain "Dr. Callahan" was "studying quantum physics."[3][54]

      2004: FTC contempt of court and injunction 7 years ago

      In June 2003, the FTC filed a complaint in the Northern District of Illinois against Trudeau and some of his companies (Shop America (USA), LLC; Shop America Marketing Group, LLC; and Trustar Global Media, Limited), alleging that disease-related claims for Coral Calcium Supreme were false and unsubstantiated. In July 2003, Trudeau entered into a stipulated preliminary injunction that prohibited him from continuing to make the challenged claims for Coral Calcium Supreme and Biotape.

      In the summer of 2004, the court found Trudeau in contempt of court for violating the preliminary injunction, because he had sent out a direct mail piece and produced an infomercial making prohibited claims. The court ordered Trudeau to cease all marketing for coral calcium products.

      In September 2004, Trudeau agreed to pay $2 million ($500,000 in cash plus transfer of residential property located in Ojai, California, and a luxury vehicle) to settle charges that he falsely claimed that a coral calcium product can cure cancer and other serious diseases and that a purported analgesic called Biotape can permanently cure or relieve severe pain. He also agreed to a lifetime ban on promoting products using infomercials, but excluded restrictions to promote his books via infomercials.[7][8][55] Trudeau was the only person ever banned by the FTC from selling a product via television. Lydia Parnes, speaking for the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection stated "This ban is meant to shut down an infomercial empire that has misled American consumers for years." Trudeau claimed the government was trying to discredit his book because he was "exposing them."[10]

      2005: Trudeau v. FTC 7 years ago

      On February 28, 2005, Trudeau filed a complaint against the FTC in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief. Trudeau also filed a motion for preliminary injunction, which the court denied.[56]

      The complaint charged that the FTC had retaliated against him for his criticism of the agency by issuing a press release that falsely characterized and intentionally and deliberately misrepresented the 2004 Final Order. That conduct, Trudeau asserted, exceeded the FTC's authority under 15 U.S.C. § 46(f) and violated the First Amendment. The Federal Trade Commission responded with a motion to dismiss the complaint for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(1), and for failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted under Rule 12(b)(6).

      The district court granted the FTC's motion to dismiss. First, the court concluded that it lacked subject-matter jurisdiction because the press release was not "a 'final agency action'" under “section 704 of the [Administrative Procedure Act]”, 5 U.S.C. § 704. Second, the court held, "in the alternative, that Trudeau’s claims failed to state a viable cause of action as a matter of law."[56]

      Trudeau later filed an appeal which was unsuccessful in reversing the court's ruling.[57]

      2005: Trudeau v. New York Consumer Protection Board 7 years ago

      Trudeau filed a lawsuit on August 11, 2005, accusing the New York State Consumer Protection Board of violating his First Amendment rights by contacting television stations in New York state and urging them to pull Trudeau's infomercials promoting his book Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About.[58] Trudeau won a temporary restraining order on September 6, 2005 prohibiting the Board from sending letters to the television stations. The temporary restraining order was replaced by a preliminary injunction. However, Trudeau lost a motion to have the Board send a "corrective letter" to the television stations and subsequently dropped all claims for monetary damages. The case is still in litigation.[59][60][61]

      2007: FTC contempt of court action 7 years ago

      2007: FTC contempt of court action

      The FTC filed a contempt of court action against Trudeau and the companies that market The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You to Know About, alleging that Trudeau was in contempt of a 2004 court order by "deceptively claiming in his infomercials that the book being advertised establishes a weight-loss protocol that is 'easy' to follow." The action was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on September 17, 2007.[18] According to an FTC press release, Trudeau has claimed that the weight loss plan outlined in the book is easy, can be done at home, and readers can eat anything they want. When consumers buy the book, they find it describes a complex plan that requires intense dieting, daily injections of a prescribed drug that is not easily obtainable, and lifelong dietary restrictions.[19]

      On November 19, 2007, Trudeau was found in contempt of the 2004 court order for "patently false" claims in his weight loss book. U.S. District Court Judge Robert W. Gettleman ruled that Trudeau "clearly misrepresents in his advertisements the difficulty of the diet described in his book, and by doing so, he has misled thousands of consumers."[47][48][62] On August 7, 2008, Judge Gettleman issued an order that Trudeau was not to appear in infomercials for any product in which he has any interest, for three years from the date of the order; and was to pay a penalty of $5,173,000, an estimate of the royalties received from the weight loss book.[63][64] On November 4, 2008, Judge Gettleman amended the judgment to $37,616,161, the amount consumers paid in response to the deceptive infomercials. The court denied Trudeau's request to reconsider or stay this ruling on December 11 of the same year.[50]

      Trudeau appealed the ruling to the United States Seventh Circuit of appeal which upheld the contempt finding, but sent the case back to the lower court to explain the basis of the $37,616,161 damage finding and the three year ban on Trudeau appearing in any infomercial for a product for which he would financially profit.[65]

      On February 11, 2010, Trudeau was arrested and forced to appear before Judge Gettleman for criminal contempt of court after he "asked his supporters to email the federal judge overseeing a pending civil case brought against him by the Federal Trade Commission." He was forced to turn over his passport, pay a $50,000 bond and was warned he could face future prison time for interfering with the direct process of the court.[66] Well-known critic of Trudeau, Stephen Barrett, the creator of, "has for years labeled Trudeau a fraud" and was quoted: "He struck me as somebody who (believes he) is omnipotent. That is, no one can touch him," Barrett said. "That’s almost been the case."[66]

      No proof of claims 7 years ago

      Trudeau has also been criticized for his inability to provide substantial evidence to back up many of his claims. Although he provides anecdotal evidence, he has not provided evidence that such customer claims have been evaluated by a licensed medical practitioner. As such, any claims made by Trudeau or his supporters that his book or other business endeavors have helped people cannot be verified and are based solely on testimonials. In instances where Trudeau has been asked to provide proof of his claims, he has misinterpreted medical studies or cited dubious or fictitious studies. For example, Trudeau cited a nonexistent 25-year research study involving a natural cure for diabetes at the University of Calgary.[68] When Jake Tapper confronted him, Trudeau insisted that he had a copy of the study and would provide it, which he never did.[69] He now claims on his infomercials that the University destroyed its findings to prevent reprisals from the pharmaceuticals industry.

      False endorsements 7 years ago

      In August 2005, the New York Consumer Protection Board warned consumers that Trudeau has used false claims of endorsements to promote his products, noting that the back cover of Natural Cures includes false endorsements. Further, the NYCPB states that Trudeau's television ads “give the false impression that Tammy Faye Messner opposes chemotherapy in favor of the ‘natural cures’ in Trudeau’s book.” A representative for Messner before her death from cancer said that was not true and that she was starting chemotherapy again.[12]

      The back cover includes the following quote from Dr. Herbert Ley, a former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration who died three years before the book was written: "The thing that bugs me is that people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what people think it's doing are as different as night and day." Trudeau's lawyer, David J. Bradford, says that this quote does not constitute a false endorsement of his book by Ley but rather is merely a statement that is in line with the purpose of his book.[70]

I turn them all down and tell then the truth. Grants are predominantly for nonprofit organizations that have been granted 501C3 tax-exempt status from the IRS. These grants must be applied for according to the particular grantor's guidelines. There is NO guarantee the nonprofit will get a dime, especially if the nonprofit is under 3 years old with no fiscal or financial history.

I order the book and tapes and Kevin went on and on ramping about his lies, everything he talks about is ordinary, things that we all know or knew about for years, lastly, he stole $14.99 from my Credit Card, I was unaware of him charging me for a Newsletter that I never got in the mail, after calling, they claimed they sent it out, I told them that I spoke to their representatives several times when they called asking about my address, I told them that I moved, which we did because of my husbans's job. The rep. told that the $14.99 is non refundable I said that my address changed and I never received this newsletter by mail, the rep. then told me that The reps that called about my address were "JUST CALLING TO SELL ME SOMETHING" so conclusion I lost $14.99 of my husband's hard earned income. Kevin is a big scammer and he seem to be filled with joy when doing this, take a good look at him selling his book you'll see through him a big liar. Stealing from the less fortunate to put in his own pockets. However I Bless him and hope that he can sleep comfortable at nights doing this.

      ANTHING even remotely associated with Trudeau is a scam. He has paid followers to post positive reviews of his 'books' on Amazon. He also pays for positive blog and forum posts. His newest scam seems to be something called the 'Global Information Network' where he claims to offer 'secret' information to the ignorant, stupid and gullible. Hopefully the FTC can shut him down permanently and put him in prison. He is a dangerous sociopath without a shred of remorse for his many crimes and con jobs.

      I've had Kevin Trudeau's Debt Cures & Free Money books for more than 6 months now; read them from cover to cover & discovered there's some useful information on certain things, but as far as free government money, it's a bunch of BALONEY!!! Think about it people. If it was really true what Kevin says that it's so easy to get free government money, wouldn't everyone in this country be rich already?

      This is his life:

      Kevin Mark Trudeau (b. February 6, 1963) is an American author, infomercial salesman, convicted felon, founder of the International Pool Tour, self-proclaimed advocate of alleged alternative medicine, and radio personality. He is best known for a number of controversial television infomercials promoting his products and for several books including Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About.

      Because of pyramid schemes and other illegal activities in relation to these promotional activities, Trudeau has been embroiled in a number of civil suits, felonies and misdemeanors, resulting in arrests, convictions, fines and jail time.

      Trudeau is every bit as dangerous as a pedophile. By his actions he has shown himself without conscience. One idiot mentioned that he was just a capitalist selling books. Trudeau represents everything that is wrong with unregulated capitalism. He is a sociopath taking advantage of the desperate and has shown no remorse for his many crimes. Trudeau should be dumped in the general population of the toughest maximum security prison wearing a little pink dress! After all he spends his time whining like a little girl that the big bad FTC is 'persecuting' him. For sheer insanity check out one of his newest scams the 'global information network.' Only a total idiot would fall for that scam. Consumer advocate? Whistle blower? No just a common con artist who deserves to be locked up!

      Geez guys lol.

      1.) Do majority of you even understand what the PURPOSE of the book is for? The book is only meant to be a source of information on some of the government programs out there that you COULD qualify for, that's it.

      2.) Kevin has a horrible past and all of the mistrust of him personally is understandable, however, to conclude the BOOK is a scam is misinformation! The book's only purpose is information. Similar to a Scholarship book that lists hundreds of scholarship programs where you BARELY find one program you qualify for, that's exactly how this book functions. Just because I don't find a program I qualify for does not mean the information is a scam, because MOST of the programs listed in this book are STILL available.

      3.) If you make over $30,000 a year give or take, MAJORITY of the programs in the book you WILL NOT qualify for. Most of these programs are for lower income individuals like college students, those on welfare, etc. So for that portion of the market this book is very helpful.

      BTW, the book is available at Borders along with other major book stores. If it's so much of a "scam" to buy it then hell go to your local bookstore, scroll through the damn book, and write down the information related to the programs you qualify for along with the links to the various websites. So that way, you can see if there's programs in the book that relate to you and not have spent your oh so precious "$20" on a quote-unquote scam! LOL.

      For less than Five Dollars I can show you how all of these guys are making their money. How to be able to do all of the same things they are doing and to make ten times that much money. This stuff is so easy it is ridiculous. There are ten way to make a hundred dollars within a week. Then you can make that grow to over one thousand dollars a month from the very first day on. You do not have to have or even need a degree from any school even High School.

      I retired all most twenty years ago now. Actually I retired on December First 1990. I receive free money every two weeks. I will do so until the day I die. I also get a 5% cost of living increase every year aas of the First of Jan.

      OK so please note I am not going to run out and advertise a big book or anything. I can send you the how and what to do with in 100 pages or less. You contact me let me know you wish for me to teach you this way and I will then get back to you with how to send your Five dollars To me and I will then send you all the info you need to make ten time what Lesko and Trudeau say they can give you in a book that you can not and never will read. Plus my way works and theirs does not. If I get at least one hundred of you that are interested I will then tell all of you how to get in touch with me.

It may be free however you still have to pay $11.90 for shipping & handling. OK, special price of $19.95 will quickly turn into $43.95 for all 3 books! $19.95 my foot!

      The only one making money is Kevin Trudeau!!

      PLEASE - Like the guy in the ? mark suit everything is available for FREE on the internet. Want to look at grants then go to - Google 'find lost money' and find one of 3 web sites mentioned in a recent news article. As of 2004 Kevin Trudeau has a lifetime ban on promoting products via infomercials - excluding his books.

      If his books help anyone then I suspect that person never followed a budget; does not read enough to know people can consolidate their own debt; is in financial straits with a low income who qualify for government programs.

      Don't waste your money on Trudeau books!! Go to the library and check out a few books!!

      I purchased the book (on audio) "Debt Cures They Don't Want You to Know About" 3 years ago at Barnes & Noble. I listened to it, and yes most of it is basic knowledge. I was real close to purchasing the "Free Money" book, but I don't think that I will since I now know that he's a SCAM, and he's "served time." However, since I am unemployed for almost 2 years and on government assistance (for the first time ever), maybe the book will be helpful to me. I will just go to my local Barnes & Noble and thumb through the book and write downn some websites and come home an look them up for FREE!

After reading this book and looking at his CD I coulsd not find anything like what he had preiched on his program. This is a BIG RIP OFF as far as I'm concerned. The Shipping and Handling is $23.90 so this is where he makes his money. The information in the book is worthless unless you make poverty level or lower income. MY RECOMMENDATION IS DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE.

      SCAM/RIP OFF. is the answer you are looking for here.

      Also here is a QUOT for what you are helping Trudeau pay for when you buy those books and Newsletters.

      " Trudeau is paying $500,000 in cash and transferring residential property located in Ojai, California, and a luxury vehicle to the FTC Commission to satisfy the $2 million monetary judgment against him. In the event that the court finds that Trudeau or his companies misrepresented their financial condition, the order would require Trudeau to pay $20 million pursuant to an avalanche clause.

      “This ban is meant to shut down an infomercial empire that has misled American consumers for years,” said Lydia Parnes, Acting Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “Other habitual false advertisers should take a lesson; mend your ways or face serious consequences.”

      Please do your research first before buying these books and newsletters.

      Just by coming to this site you will see what just a Few people are saying.

      As a Male I WAS captivated by the Big Breasts of the two PlayBoy bunnies. That held my attention most of all, for the whole thirty So Yes the use of the PB Bunnies were a big factor for males and Lesbians.

      I do want to thank those that posted Links for different states and other links as well. Use to find your own state resources. Most of the time people just like to bit_h but not do anything about it. Again thanks for the Links and advise like this one " Don't waste your money on Trudeau books!! Go to the library and check out a few books!!." Good Info TruthB.

      So do your Homework first before buying these books. IT's A SCAM for the most part.

      I wanted a book to read and why not free money. So when the shipping cost doubled the total amount, I said no thank you. The operator said it was too late and I would have to call a supervisor. They were not available at the moment. The operator did say that it was too late after I said I wanted the book and gave my credit card number. I stated I did not authorize shipping or a total amount and how could they charge something I did not authorize! Let's see how this ends and if I get stuck with some sort of stupid charge.

      I did see a few comments about being poor, jobless, terrible or no credit and disabled people being able to get money. I have no idea about how to go about doing anything. There are too many conflicting things on the internet about everything. All I know is that I fall right into that category above but I can't even receive Medicaid.

      My daughter is 19, lives at home, never leaves the house, is afraid to learn to drive so she doesn't have her license. Only have an old '79 truck anyway. My husband receives a 674 mthly SSI check, our rent is 600, his credit is bad, as well as mine. I also never leave the house except to go to the grocery store. My daughter can't find a job and I've never worked because I took care of my son(who lives in a group home now) that has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, took care of my husband and home-schooled my daughter. I need to be on disability but wouldn't get anything. I am depressed constantly, always feel like not doing anything at all and also have had Hep C. for 20 yrs and never done anything about it cause I didn't have the time and now I can't do anything because of no insurance. I can't go visit my son because of money and it's killing me. I would rather have him back at home. But the state has custody over him because I never filed to be his guardian when he turned 18. I thought that by doing that, that it meant I wanted to put him in an institution. No one explained anything to me. It didn't want to put him in a home where I wouldn't know what was happening to him.

      People around where my family lives, don't even have the money to buy anything you have to sell. The times I've passed by yard sales, they were still going on in the late afternoon (4pm); with still a yard full of stuff. Our town just pasted an ordinance about yard and garage sales; saying that you can only have 2 every 6 mths and they have to be 60 days apart and no signs on poles,etc. I know things are getting worse, it seems like they are every day.

      I 'bought' the little book of Kevin's Debt Cures, and I let my Dad read it, since he's in his late 70's, He

      didn't say much, but not to get the other books! LOL I'm

      out $6 bucks, lot of useless hyped-hypo-poop. "Ryan

      Orrell does the same thing, in how to make millions on

      the internet." I feel as though, a lot of rip artists who

      are already wealthy, and rich, buy the air time to make

      this crap to push off on other people. The real losers

      are the suckers who go off buying this crap. Hell, if I

      wrote a book on how to score sugar-momma's or how to get

      wealthy, by seducing older cougars and sugar-momma's,

      I'd make everyone buy my book! Don't believe everything

      at face value. It's a "Transformers' thing, there is more

      than meets the eye." Remember what your teacher and your

      mom and dad tells you.. "DO YOUR HOMEWORK!" You'll save

      yourself MILLIONS if you do! That's FREE Advice that been

      around since the age of time. :)

      This douchebag uses the oldest tricks in the book (pardon the pun) to sell his snake oil; conspiracy theory. He has other so-called books that use the word "they" in them. My question to Trudeau is; who are they? Is this the government, corporations, or some other entity that's conspiring to keep us in the dark for devious means? Come on Kevin, do you really think we're all fools? I guess you're hoping fools will part with their money because you know the truth, right?

      PLEASE READ: I ordered both of Kevin's books (Free Money and Debt Cures) and I must say he is an absolute scam artist. In the book he includes a lists of agencies and private individuals that offer grants. There are at least 40 listings. So I went to the post office, ordered 2 rolls of stamps and sent a letter to every last organization and person he listed in his book. Out of the 40 letters I mailed, I received 39 of them back saying address incorrect, no such address, or no longer there. The one that was correct said they do not provide grants to individuals. I have tried every thing he listed in the book and nothing worked. It appears as if he wrote a book without doing research so that "we" can see if the things work. I believe he should have a class-action lawsuit against him. He states that the "government" is upset with him because he know insider secrets, but I am positive this is a lie also. If any one is mad with him it is the public because he has been false advertising his material. I have contacted a lawyer who has decided to take my case because Kevin is clearly false advertising. Like another person posted, who is "they" and "them?" They and them are nobody's because any information that is available to the public is accessible by the public.

      Not all what Kevin says is false, because the Gov. cheat on the American people as well.

      However, when Kevin being a Canadian shouldn't target the American worker for his own benefit at the same time the Gov. license these crooks to legally operate & cheat on the public, by the time these crooks are taken to court they are already licensed by the operate a new scam.

      I purchased Kevin's book The Weight Loss Cure and honestly it is a good book, it has alot of good and true information in it, but there is a catch in order to loose the weight the way he says you better have money because the treatment isn't cheap and you better have a doctor who is familar with the process because what Kevin doesn't tell you in the Infomercial is that you can't do this process without the help of a doctor. There are shots that have to be given first thing in the morning and they have to be given by a doctor. Again, alot of the information that he gives in the book does make sense like the obesity and health problems in the USA is caused by the food companies and all the crap that they are putting in our food. All the processed food, the preservatives, MSG, crap that you didn't have back in the day. I am over 50 years old and food doesn't taste today like it did when I was a kid. People didn't have all the sickness when I was a kid that they have now days. You didn't hear of people with ADHD or AADHD I truly believe it's the pesticides, and additives that is on and in the food that we buy at the grocery store. This is why I shop at the health food store and grow my own fruit and vegetables, and have my own chickens, and steers, and hogs. I have fresh eggs everyday and I know what my chickens are being feed as well as what the steers are eating and what the hogs are eating. I know that it isn't possible for everyone to do what I do but there are ways to eat healthly and almost every city or town has at least one health food store and I'm sure that everyone could find a farm market somewhere that sells fresh pesticide clean veggies and fruits and find meat free of steriods and hormones.

On the other hand, if you are victim of scam, the only way you can get it resolved is to FILE YOUR COMPLAINT WITH BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. Trust me they will get your money back (make sure you keep all receipts or credit card statements). I was scammed one time and learnt hard way when I actually ordered something and couldn't get refund. STAY AWAY FROM TV ADDS THAT TALK ABOUT GETTING SOMETHING EASY, FREE, AND DO YOUR RESERCH BEFORE YOU CALL. I just came accross this channel where Kevin talks about his book, and I thought how many victims already fall for his crap!He like many of others doing the sacm make me sick!

      i absolutely hate the fact that he is a scam. i was watching his infomerical and in it he said that he is writing these books for the better of mankind and that he is not making any money off the book itself. Does he think were stupid. Almost NO ONE in the world will work for free without getting "something" out of it. i mean yes a lot of people intern at places for free but they are learning that job so they can have a future in it. that's different. However he is NOT "giving away" those books. He is making money off them. he is a millionare off of scamming people. In high school and college i learned a phrase in economics that really has stuck with me through life. "there is no such thing as a free lunch" that is all you need to know. Nothing is truly "free" there is always some kind of "payment" made. He is a true scam and does not deserve to be a millionare. He is NOT here to help the public. If he were then he would NOT have been in prison for fraud and scams. Anyone with that kind of back ground should NOT be allowed to sell to the public. In one of his books about health cures he talks about there being 12 types of cancer that the Government refuses to tell us about. Yet he has the answer. A guy who was in prison has found the 12 cures to cancer. If he had the "cure" to cancer he would be a billionare and would be a medical icon. He also says that AIDS are a fraud. and also that Chemotherapy is worse than cancer. Yes chemotherapy can and will make a person sick, i know because my mom has cancer, however it can help you in the end. You have to take that chance. Fight to live or live to die. I honestly wish that someone would go on tv and debate with him on live tv and see how he backs up his "claims". All he cares about is "free" money. That free money is "our" money. How gullible can people be. he is not the "cure". Honestly he is no Billy Mays. Billy Mays sold products that WORKED and WORK; Ped Egg, Awesome Auger, Jupiter Jack, Oxy-Clean, Kaboom to name a few..can you name any produc that Kevin sold or will sale that actually works like it says it does. I am so sick of his false claims and lies. He has NO medical Training. He constantly claims that doctors only went to college to learn how to write prescriptions and to give us poison however, had doctors not learned all that they know....the average life span would probably be about 30 now. If you notice as time goes on and the doctors become more experienced and learn more the life span goes up. Also as technology becomes more advanced our life spans go up. I mean think about it. Yes there are a lot of "natural cures out there" however they are NOT as he says. Yes you can grow plants which help with poison ivy, there are plants that you can eat which numb your mouth and help with tooth aches. I mean cocaine actually use to be used to numb the nose to help with surgery (it may still be used sometimes). Marajuana actually can be used to help with glacoma and other problems. If you think about it. God made the earth and he made us. Along with us he created the plants and animals which are here to help us survive. If you don't like eating meat from animals you can survive off of plants etc. How do you think the cave men survived. Now as we become more advanced we learn of more cures from the earth. Honestly in the future a cure for cancer or aids will probably come from a plant or something from the earth itself. You see what im sayins any person with some common sense knows that there are "cures" out there. However the claims he makes are false. without doctors we would not be where we are today.

      DO NOT call to get Kevin Trudeau's books. They aren't worth the money. The company Quality Resources, Inc. will start calling you after you order the product. They company will then try to get you to purchase other products and services at that point. The company will call your number several times a day, never leave and message, and if you call them back they will know who you are (use your name) even if you mark the call private by using *67. Be firm, say "no" to everything they ask you. The phone number I received calls from was 727-712-0152. Go to their website Quality Resources dot com, hit the contact button at the top of the website, then click the link shown at the button to have your phone number removed from their call list. I personally think the company should be shut down. This kind of harassment is anything but "quality".

      J. Frank Pinell 6 years ago all of you chewing out Tredeau, yes, true, he may have been in hot water in the past (or so I've heard) but I'll tell you...the 2 books I have from him on natural cures are the best thing I've ever bought! (No, I'm not a relative of his!) :) I got into natural/herbal remedies long before I bought those 2 books, and everything I've read in those so far has not only made logical sense about the drug companies and their profits, to sum it up, but the herbalists I deal with totally understand, and agree with, his writings on those books.

      Not everything is going to work for everyone, and, in retrospect, I have to say that, it seems the people who complain about his books are those who can't benifit from them. Nothing is guaranteed people. It's a gamble you take whether something will help or not. (In this case, whether there's anything in the "free money" book of his that you're eligible for.)

      Yes, I understand, I am organic and herbal myself. It is not the point. The point is we know all that: Kevin Trudeau did not write anything NEW!! The " beware" to people or consumers is the exess amount of dollars that he take from consumers by charging their credit cards with extras..see consumer reviews..And I partially read his books and yes from library( didn't have to pay a dime)..and truly did not see any informations or very revealing facts...I have seen the guy on television for about 20 years now and he is not good to consumers.. again the FTC(federal trade commission)consumer protection is watching him. If you notice, he will not make a STATEMENT on tv (if not he would be shut down by the Federal Trade Commission) Sorry that he got your money, you are one of his suckers..sorry!!! No hard feeling, that guy is not to trust and follow or worse buy his books. if you are herbal and organic, check then Dr.pinkus,Dr.laux or Dr.Williams which sell natural products and explain them...You don't have to buy, but you can learn about what does what in your body and why we need certain things(such as fish oil or vitamin C daily)..just a thought!!

      Well, if Pascal wants to think that way, they're entitled to their opinion, but don't label me, huh? Those 2 books about natural cures have been perfect for me. I'll admit I'm VERY iffy about ordering anything on t.v. and will probably wait 'til I see this next book in the stores (like I did the first 2) Yeah, I know he got sued big time by the U.S. for things in the past, but the issue that matters isn't the suit, it's how the suit turned out. -He was acquitted of all criminal charges on the writings of these books because of the 1rst Amendment. Not all things work for everyone. There might be things in that book that work for someone and not the next guy.The first 2 books on natural cures contained much information that I already knew about well before I bought them. Plus much more I didn't know about. As Gilbert above says, the scams are the firms. And by the same token, also the drug companies and food companies like Monsantos.

      Think about it....if you're the CEO of Phizer or Merck making billions upon billions upon billions every year on your drug sales, are you going to want word to get out that something else you can get cheaper -or maybe free out of your own garden or backyard- can CURE instead of just provide maintainence for your condition so you won't need their drugs the rest of your life? This is what those first 2 are all about. He's not giving any "snake oil" cures to (literally) swallow.

If Kevin Trudeau is such a scam why is he still advertising and what is our so call government doing about it. I say nothing just like most crooks in America that get away with everything and nothing is being done like the drug fake war and the wicked police.

      I worked with Kevin Trudeau for a couple of years. I was a studio engineer at Nightingale-Conant during the lat 80's until I got shit-canned 13 years ago. I recorded Mega Math and Mega Speed Reading. I condensed Mega Memory from 6 a hour program to a 2 hour program. In order to do that, I had to get Trudeau's OK for the edits, as stipulated in his contract. I had to work through his attorney, because he was in the Federal pen for credit card fraud. I recorded the training tapes for the Nutrition for Life multi-level marketing scheme he was involved with.

      I was the low man on the totem pole at Nightingale, and Kevin Trudeau was part of the shit detail I had to deal with.

      He told me one day, just as an aside, "I spend most of my time in court with lawyers."

      The speed reading program with Howard Berg was really bad. This was in the day they were publishing 6 cassette programs. Side 12 was Kevin pitching his other products. The program needed a lot of editing, but I was told to push it through fast, and skip the editing. Some distribution company heard it and refused to sell it the way it was, so I was told to re-edit.

      There was time to do it over, but not time to do it right in the first place.

      When I joined Nightingale-Conant in 1987, there were about 250 employees. It was a well respected motivational and sales training tape company, the best. I was proud of the stuff I worked on, and I learned a lot.

      When Trudeau got out of the pen, he and his cellmate Jules got involved in Nutrition for Life, an Amway-style pyramid scheme scam, and we produced the tapes they sold.

      Not we, I. I recorded him in Studio A for 2or or 3 years, i don't remember many details. Jules did a Yoda impression that he thought was hilarious. I had to record this crap, it was my day job. Trudeau did TV infomercials with Danny Bonnaduce about some health products around that time. Nightingale housed the Trudeau Marketing Group in the building for a while, and the morale slid downhill.

      People were laid off From Nightingale in a few waves. Mike, Rose, Roger, Steve, and many others. When I was laid off in March of 1997, they fired 50 people that day. The personnel director had a sign on his desk that could be moved around to say, "Have a nice day," or " Take a hike."

      I took a hike. I'm still pissed off and bummed. It was a good company, and buying into Trudeau's bullshit cost them their reputation and a lot of jobs, mine among them. I think there are about 75 people working there now. Trudreau is long gone from Nightingale, and they don't even sell his stuff anymore. He does that on his own.

      Before you buy from Kevin Trudeau, read on the internet about the complaints against him.

      I'm not making this shit up. Thanks for letting me rant

      I ordered Kevins lost money book, I just recieved it, so I tried one of the sites in the book to see if I had money waiting for me, and they said that I do, but I will have to give them my credit card number to find out. They said something about I would have to give them $100.00 dollars for them to search to see if I have free MONEY. Why should I have to pay to have them to search for me, since I ordered the book, THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO HELP ME. So for I wouldn't given them my credit card number, and they wont search for me, so I guess the free money book I ORDERED, will go on my book shelf and collect dust, cause I'm not about to pay them to serch for me. I thaught that was why you get the book. Ordering the book was just a GAMBLE I took! But about all of the bad comments, I HAVE READ, I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ALL FROM THE SAME PERSON, CHANGING THEIR NAME FOR EACH COMMENT. I think they are some one against Kevin, and they are writing all the bad comments, trying to make you think they are a bounch of different people, saying Kevin"s books are a scam. I don't believe kEVIN is a scam at all, but I figured that,by reading the book, that I could find out weather or not I HAVE FREE MONEY. But all of the web sites that I went to IN THE BOOK wonted to charge me to find out. NOT COOL!!!!!!

      Wow. Not to judge, but how did any of you fall for this clown's bullshit? He has 2 playboys on his panel, and he's just spewing out a bunch of inaccurate cliche anti-government/bank crap in the simplest terms possible. None of it made any sense, and it was purposefully misleading in so many ways - I can't believe some of these networks even aired it.

      Having a Bachelor's in Accounting, I was literally sitting on my couch laughing at their "educated discussion" on these financial matters. One of the women was supposedly a "certified financial planner"... god, if that is true then she should be really ashamed for being part of this crap, I hope they paid her well.

      This guy has officially taken over Crossover's John Edwards as the worlds biggest douche-bag. At the end he's saying how he will make zero money from the books, and is doing it out of the goodness of his own heart, and just to 'protect the American people'.... HAHAHA, there were some real gem quotes in this special. Big surprise he was arrested for fraud in the 80's and 90's, and have very recently been nabbed again, and was actually banned from doing any more infomercials other than some of his books. Look him up on Wikipedia for sources on the bottom. So ridiculous, the guy is the fucking scum of the earth.

      On his Free Money book:

      If the Feds are actually trying to put Trudeau away I hope they succeed. The man truly sucks the big one.

      The sites he listed at times weren't in service (dead to the world), were impossible to qualify for, or they were pay sites. I already paid Trudeau for nothing, why would I compound my mistake by adding to my debt?

      I read his Debt Cures book also. What a waste. It's basically the same tirade you see on TV only in expanded form. Cures are minimal

      Kevin Trudeau is what they call a scam artist. If all these grants were available then why should we have to pay someone to get the information?? If they are for us to have information should not have to be purchased. That is why I would not send in my hard earned money!! I am sure he does make a profit from these infomercials!! If he says he don't then he is a liar! Your right when you call they try to sell you more books for more money! Those operators all work out of boiler rooms.

      I don't understand why all of you that have been scammed keep trying to get your money back. You paid with a credit card, turn it over to the credit card company. They will investigate and get your money back. If you used a debit card,go to your back there is a form to fill out and they submit it to whatever department handles it. They will try to get your money back, most likely will be able to when more than the cost of the book with s/h has been taken out.

      Let the credit card company handle it, they are in a much better place to get your money back.

      Kevin Trudeau can suck it. His books are a scam..... i agree there may be some "free money" in the form of grants but every site he gave in his book wasn't something i haven't already looked up on my own. Fortunately, he didn't get a dime of my money. My father bought it off the t.v. and i figured I would take a look to see if it was legitimate. As soon as I started reading I knew this guy was a kook! I hate you Kevin! My parents don't have strong finances or any type of financial aptitude. You prey on people like this and you should be shot you asshole. In a time where the economy is struggling and people are trying to get by, you are preying on those trying to find a way to keep their head above water. Suck it!

      I ordered both Kevin Trudeau book "Free Money" and Anthony Morrison book "Advertisingprofits from home" and afterwards found all these negative comments/reports regarding both authors and their books as scams. 99% of the information provided is either copied information, outdated information, or just plan old crap. The bottom line is that they both or good and convincing at what they do and they have found a way to make millions. OH WELL, I'm sure this will not be the last time that honest citizens get scammed in one way or another. Unfortunately, our so called government KEEPS allowing these individuals (and there are thousands of them on the internet) our government keeps allowing them to do these infomercial and present these thousands of money opportunities on the internet. The internet is loaded with crap. PRACTICALLY, "EVERYONE" IS SCAMMING ON THE INTERNET in one way or another. NO way tells the honest truth. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DOLLAR! GOD BLESS ALL DURING THESE HARD ECONOMIC TIMES. (I know the rich don't even know these are hard economic times, so obviously, I'm referring to average citizens who are still looking at price tags before purchasing things).

      Anthony Morrison is following in the same footsteps as his mentor Kevin Trudeau. The public keeps paying for these books and making them multi-millions, so why not keep marketing these books. Kevin appears to be an EXPERT on various subjects from Coloncleanse, NaturalCures, to FREE MONEY. NO, no one is an expert on everything. He figures out what the economy wants, then he and a group of peope do the research and throw together a book and market it. ANY Honest citizen can research on the internet and library on a topic - copy others information, just reword it and make a book, newsletter, booklet - BUT CAN YOU SELL / MARKET IT LIKE Kevin and Anthony, that's the key. Don't get mad people because you're not an expert at deceit and marketing and you don't have any connections or the know how to pull of what they are pulling off. Look on the internet. Every one is scamming and lying. WE ALL (except the rich) ARE TRYING DESPARATELY TO MAKE A BUCK! Including our government who in my opinion has let this internet thing get way out of hand and is continuing to allow American Citizens to be scammed.

      The book isn't a scam so mauch as it is misleading. These programs exist but as several people have mentioned there are strings attached for qualification. Usually these programs are income related and yes you have to be dirt poor, unemployed and willing to perorm some "useful" function- ie. go to school for pediatric nursing and sign up to spend 5 years doing it on a remote indian reservation. To answer those who think a simple google search will get you the information for free... not so much. The problem is that various govt. departments handle different grants and other programs. In order to find them you have to ask the right department AND know the full and correct grant / program name or the number assigned to it. The govt. doesn't have some convenient all encompassing listing of all/ any available grants. That doesn't mean the info is not out there. It is just very difficult to track. Due to this it makes Kevin Trudeau's or Mathew Lesko's books worth a look. At least they can point you in the right directions to look, even if the grants they list are already expired. So, order the book, copy the general info to do the research yourself for current programs and return the book for your refund less shipping and handling. If you have issues with getting a refund talk to your credit card company. Most card companies will back you up and help get refunds from companies they paid! ANd of course you can always threaten with lawyers and postings of bad reviews to make them (the book people) do what you need them to do. Hope this was helpful to those interested. And no I do not work for Lesko or Trudeau, I've just been there and done that and this is what I learned.

      I cant believe Kevin Trudeau is still around, I remember watching him pedal the Atkins diet, it was a booklet of things to eat and avoid and then a bunch of test strips that were supposed to tell you when your body was in a fat burning state, about 10 or 12 years ago. The only thing positive about him is he makes sure to find some very attractive women to sit with him and act like hes a big deal. One infomercial he had a former playboy model with a short skirt sitting with him. he is so ridiculous. And if you think he doesnt make any money off those books, then i feel sorry for anyone who believes that. No one does anything for free, they do it either for a profit or if it is a charitable thing, like he says then he must get a tax write off or something.

      This guy is all about money. He hides his ulterior motive under what the newest media hype is, be it, America's health problem, America's economy problem or America's housing problem. So, he will take America's short comings and prey upon those people in need who will listen to anything they think will help them. IMO, this is basically a terrorist. Someone that does this puts terror or fear in the minds of people who will believe anything if they think it will help them. Some of these people will use their last dollar to buy into this hype/scam instead of by the medicine they need or food for their children if they think it will help them. I know because I am in that situation but, I have one thing on my side and that is knowledge and the use of this computer to Google his name before I buy. So, I say "SHAME ON YOU" Kevin Trudeau for preying on the helpless. SHAME ON YOU!

      BEWARE IF INFOMERCIALS: They are simply used to gather your information. Everyone who selling something loves a sucker! Don't be one.

      Kevin Trudeau wants to get your phone number, email, and credit card infromation then sell it to other high pressure sales people. For months after ordering one of his books I constantly recieved calls to buy things. That is the scam pure and simple.

      As the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn't!

      However, if you WANT to believe Kevin get the book at Amazon for $9.50 plus shipping. When I'm looking to buy I trust Amazon. They dont' USE or SELL your information. FYI I don't not sell on amazon, however that's the first place go. I've bought evrything from books to household products, to auto parts through time. They're great! If you don't believe it, go check out there stock price or history chart.

So that part is just my stupidity and lack of clear understanding of terms. HOWEVER, two certificates for $15. arrived, not ONE for $30. at the bottom of both of these certs it says "ONLY ONE PER PERSON OR HOUSEHOLD"...that's just fraud.

I also know that the government doesn't want us to know about alot of things because of greed what would happen if we didn't know where that free money is or how to get it? It would go back to the government for them to line their pockets with. I do believe Mr. Trudeau is in it for money to for selling his books, but he also has to make a living somehow too. Wherever you go to get it you will be bombarded with people asking you to buy other things that is what that job is especially if you call I worked in a call center for awhile and if you didn't you would get written up for not asking the customer about other things. All I can say is this the "GOVERNMENT IS GREEDY" they want that money and will stop at nothing to keep it especially making sure that no one knows about it if that really works.

      Hi folks!

      So most people may not get to this post since its listed in reverse chronological order.

      The FTC is out to get Kevin Trudeau. Why? Well lets see, did you watch the infomercial? Did you seem him openly speak about how the idioits in congress pass billions and billions of dollars in grant money to pad their buddies pockets? Hmmm. With all the millions of scam artists in this country and the FTC just sitting around doing zip , zilcvh , nada about it, how is it that this one salesperson gets slammed over and over agian? Public outcry? Hmm, think again, no one EVER has filed a consumer complaint with the FTC about him. So, what's the deal?

      The Government runs the biggest scam of all. KT points to a small part of it and irritates the wrong person and viola! He gets prosecuted.

      As to all the bogus crap you will find on the internet? More FTC rigged bs. Check out the fake site called '' , its great, poorly made totally fake , privately owned site pretending to be a group called consumer affairs when its actually just another KT slam job.

      About his books:

      When you by one online, if you dont want the extra costs of various 'upsells', say no. Thats not so hard is it?

      If they overcharge your CC, call your bank and stop payment... also not complex.

      As to the content of the books... I havnt yet ordered 'Free money', but I can tell you the one about health cures was excellent.

      Doctors, pharma, the entire medical industry is a total scam. So would you rather drink a teaspoon of vinegar a day to feel healthy or take some of their chemical concoctions? up to you.

      KT is no worse than any other salesman and a hell of a lot better than your average politician, lawyer, banker

      Can you imagine the amount of BS that went into creating this many posts in a blog about buying a flipping book or not?

      Hopefully, more of this crap will become transparent to more people soon. Your Government lies to you, constantly, start paying attention. 'Follow the money'

      I hear a lot of bashing on Kevin, thats the freedom we have in America to speak freely unless to defame one. I havent bought his free money book though I have read a lot of info that I agree with and believe to be true on my own study. He never claims to had found any cure. What he does claim is someone else using the methods he addresses. If you dig deep into these issues you will find that other doctors, nutritionalist what have you are practicing these methods of treatment wether in America or another country. We all know sickness is everincreasing in America and around the globe. The thing he does is gather all the information he researched(as you and I can do) and put it in simple form. People in America are lazy when it comes to research and just assumelet the doctor fix me after all he has a phd in that field. I choose on my own to heal alternatively and practice prevention rather than get sucked into the fast food industry and believing that the doc has all the answer.

      As far as making money for him. If it sells why not. The rich are rich because of failed attempts one after another until one attempt works. The info he gives works, the way he makes money works. If that makes him a scam then look at the many other products out there like the makeup you put on, or the cologne you where. Does it really get you what you want by wearing it or do you have to exercise your voice. And really do you think those advertising the product use it. Be honest they dont its all a marketing scam.

      I just watched his commercial and called the toll-free number. The person answering obviously was following script and everytime I questioned something, or indicated I was going think about it, she always came up with an alternative close to make it more attractive such $30.00 voucher for gas, and a free trip to Orlando. I told I needed a free trip to Orlando, so she offered Vegas, or a wine country tour. T told her if they have to give away enticements the product probably didn't live up to my expectations. She gave up and ended the call. I checked on online at a legitimate website and entered my name and no free anything came up, so I figure I saved at least $44.00.

      They say "if it sounds too good to be true, it is" and as PT Barnum said "there is a sucker born every minute" Kevin Trudeau is a true huckster, preying on the hopes and prayers of his audience. Today I watched an infomercial starring, you guessed it - Kevin Trudeau - promoting his latest book "Free Money" I have watched the great Kevin over the years. I once ordered one of his books on cures that could save mankind. What a joke. If you, the public, wants to buy into his miracle cures, getting free money or whatever, then you are the fool. He may have been in prison in the past but he is out there making more money than you and I will ever make. I wish you all well with your complaints and problems. Hopefully, you will all wake up and smell the coffee and find there is a rat in your coffee cup and that rat is Kevin about to steal your money. Happy New Year. For your info, I googled the words "free money" on the web and discovered more than 539 million websites promoting free money. Kevin isn't the only one trying to suck your good earned money away.

      On December 11 at 2:30 am (Pacific time) I saw an advertisement for a book I was interested in so I called to order it. The advertisement stated that the cost was usually $29.95 but in this case was reduced to $19.95 plus shipping. They didn’t say how much the shipping was, but I figured that it was probably between $5 and $10.

      I called the number (1-800-445-xxxx) and a young sounding FAST-TALKING woman answered and I replied that I wanted to order the “Free Money” book that was advertised at $19.95 plus shipping. I also wanted to know up front what the shipping charge was, so I asked and was told that it was $11.95 and would take 3 to 5 weeks to receive it unless I wanted to pay an upcharge for faster delivery. I made a comment about the high shipping cost, but that at least the book was $10 off. She then asked for and verified all of my address and credit card information. I figured at that point it was a done deal except for a final verification of the total including the shipping charges. The woman then started to talk even faster than before and was offering additional sets of books after which she would say “okay?” assuming perhaps that I wanted this as well. I told her that I didn’t want this offer. She again started to offer another set of books, after which I said “no, I don’t want it”. She again started to make additional book offers and at this point was starting to get fed up with all the pitching. I again told her “no” and then made it clear to her that I was only ordering the original book that I called in for and that I was expecting my total to be $31 and some change, and that was it. I told her politely that I wasn’t ordering anything else and to please stop wasting my time by offering anything more. She refused to respect my request and kept pitching unwanted offers and I kept refusing them. She finally came down to the total money verification and hurriedly told me that my total was “$43.85, okay?” I immediately said “No, it’s not okay because the amount is incorrect and should only be $31 something”. She told me that it was too late to change it and that I would have to call customer service to fix it. I then told her to cancel out the entire order. She still insisted that I would have to call in to customer service to do that. I hung up and called back in and talked to another woman who sounded older and was more considerate. I explained what had happened previously and she told me that I should call in to customer service when they opened at 8 am (Eastern time). She gave me a customer service number (1-888-856-9046) to call and said that there would be somebody to take my call even though it was a Saturday. Saturday at 9:30 am (Pacific time) I dialed the number and spoke to a man named GEORGE. I briefly explained the incorrect order and that I was calling to confirm that the order had been cancelled. He told me that he was unable to help me in any way and suggested that I call after 48 hours had passed.

      48 hours later… Monday 8 am December 13 (Pacific time) I called back to customer service and explained what had happened and requested confirmation of the order cancellation. I was told that the order was already processed and that it was impossible to cancel it. I said that was unacceptable especially in view of the fact that I had been told that there was 3 to 5 week delivery time. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was told that one may call me back. I then called (503-xxx-xxxx) the Bank, to report the dispute and explained the situation. The teller told me that she would get a credit issue started. She also said that if I did receive the merchandise, to send it back to them.

      Tuesday, December 14. I was called by a person who identified themselves as a supervisor. I explained the situation to her and she was very unwilling to set things right by stopping the unauthorized order.

      Saturday, December 18. When I check the mail I discovered the package from “Free Money” had arrived in a miraculous seven days what should have taken 3 to 5 weeks to get here.

      Tuesday, December 21. I wrote in permanent marker “Return to Sender” on the address delivery side of the box. I then took the unopened package to the US Post Office. I waited my turn in line and handed the package to a postal clerk named Lisa, who inspected it, accepted it, and made a comment about it being returned. I asked her if they used the original (USPS) tracking number identification {9102 8081 6217 xxxx xxxx xx} in the return of an item. She said that they did not, and I suggested that it would be a good idea and an easy way to track such a thing. When I came home I called back to the Bank (503-xxx-xxxx) an informed them that I had received a package from and returned it to sender. I also called customer service at “Free Money” and informed them that the package was “returned to sender” at the US Post Office.

      Wednesday, December 22. I received the correspondence from the Bank that prompts the creation of this letter explaining the basis for the dispute over the original unauthorized amount of $43.85. This letter was written and mailed Friday, December 24, 2010.

      I want to thank you at the Bank for your kind assistance in resolving this dispute with the “Free Money” business. I have never before felt so abused, disrespected, and defrauded by anyone besides “Free Money,” whom I had entrusted to share my personal information with for purpose of a simple purchasing transaction.

      Recently purchased Kevin Tredeau's book Free Money they don't want you to know about and got the Debt Cures book for free; just had to pay $11.22 shipping and handling for each book for a total of $48.90. Then I got all these calls for insurance and value plus and fun source and Kevin's Free Money Newsletter for $14.95 a month. These people talk so fast and you are not allowed to interrupt them. One called me while I was in the doctor's office and had the nerve to ask me not to interrupt her. Anyway, I canceled everything long before the 30 day trial was up and still got charged $14.95 for the newsletter. When I talked to customer service representative he informed me that I did not cancel before the 30 day trial was up. I told him to check his records. The offer was for the same day I purchased the books and the trial was not up yet. He said i would see the refund in 3 to 5 business days. I told him no, they charged me before the trial period was up I wanted my refund the same day. If Kevin says he is not making any money I believe he is not being honest. So what else is he not being honest about? Stay clear of these people, they are just preying on the less fortunate.

He Wants It All, You Don't get Free Money; you did something wrong! Gimmie a break, Kev!

      I called one late night while viewing his commercial, I thought under $30 didn't sound bad for a book that could offer such potentially helpful info. Even if it was a scam I figured it wouldn't be a great loss.

      Well the high pressure tactics these sales reps put on you is unlike any other I have ever experience. I was getting downright angry and telling this woman that ALL I wanted was the book and she just kept on and on and on and at the end of the order I gave her an expired credit card and hung up. Now who had the last laugh!

      All I can say is that I had money sitting out there from my moms insurance policy. A search company approached me. I should have did it on my own because I had to pay them 30%. So you may have unclaimed money out there you do not know about. So that was a helpful hint from the infomercial.

      And a lot of the stuff he said about the food on his past infomercials turns out to be true too. But, research on your own.

      I do not think you have to buy the books etc. and make someone else rich. Research hidden money on your own and use the internet to do your own research.

      misforturned 6 years ago

      I am just warning people of the new name of the company calling people to "help" the misfortuned or disable people trying to make ends meet. My husband is disabled and we now have a very limited income. He would like to trust anyone who would be able to help us out of such a financial problem that we have got into due to increaseing medical bills and insurance costs. We see so many people in our state that get state aid for having a ton of kids, drinking, and using any drug coming. They even move to our state just to get free medical and food stamps. We have worked all our lives and paid into the goverment every week since he had been working and now me still working as hard as I can to make ends meet and we can't even get any assistance. So when we bought the Kevin T's book on free money from the goverment we were very excited. We also got charged on our account every month until I said it was enough. My husband did cancel this and it worked but not before we got the big sales pitch ( they got our name from Kevin Trudeau ) on how we are at the top of the list for a gov grant because of our situation and we too spoke to 2 different people, one salesman and one grant officer. We thought twice after our 3rd interview and decided to look things up on line. I am very happy we did. We can not afford to loose even 5 dollars. I hope that none of our accounts get compramised. Thank everyone for saving our last savings. I hope this helps some one else.

      Free money does exist. If you have low income there is a pell grant to help get an education. That is a grant every college knows about you can check anywhere. That is a well known grant(money given to you for free with no payback).What kevin does is find hundreds of lesser known or even hidden grants and organizes it in an easy to grasp book rather than you spending months researching them yourself.

      Ok. This book natural cures they don't want you to know about. I read it front to back. I did not fall for the newsletter crap. This book Gives no actual natural cures. go figure. It gives you natural ways to live your life for these medical conditions not to form in the first place maybe. Eating organicly--duh. not ingesting chems--duh--that could include switching to an organic deoderant, only putting items on your skin that you would ingest, the list goes on--not taking medications that are not needed. sleeping 8-10 hrs night--duh. drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day. All of these things are GREAT to do. DO THEM. lol As for natural CURES. pfft. Now, His weight loss book--ive never read it, but I did half the stuff in his natural cures book for "disease" and I had better metabolism and weight loss. I slept better at night. Had less stress. amazing really. I hear it said any of his information you can find at the library or online here. YES. research yourself. If you're lazy, his books are informative at best, most of the stuff you already know however. Now, conspiracy theories about drug companies? they do care about profits more than people. yeh. so. it's been know. try to stay off drugs you don't really need? heck yea. Look at how many side effects these drugs have. its easier to pay the lawsuit and keep doing the wrong than fix the wrong. Drug companies make more $$ than they pay out in lawsuits. Natural cures THEY, the drug companies don't wan you to know about, can be summed up in a few words: Exercise, eat well, get lots of sleep, keep stress levels low and be a happier/healthier person!

      ps. I'm going to check out those free government lost money links now the other user posted. Mbby the ones for "free money"too. I didn't need a book for that, although, someones one peice of information you didn't know, sometimes makes all the difference. I also had the books/tapes buying real estate with no money down by carlton sheets. I'm gullable? Well, I sent them both back after reading so not that gullable:) A few peices of information from that book I didn't know (I'm a landlord and own 3 houses now, when I purchased the books in the past I only had my own residence) were 1.collect rent WEEKLY to quicken eviction times, etc, easier to get the $$ sometimes. 2. Your Realtor must present any offer you make by law. A few other little bits of information I could have found out in various other medians but instead first read them here. These types of books are public information most of the time. You could collect a list of things after researching them, make a book advertising its all in one easy place, and sell it. That's what these guys do. A great deal of their sales are due to just that, being a Salesman, convincing, etc, etc. Others like me, who are not public speakers. Look for these books at the library instead and BORROW THEM :) that's my advice. bootlegged copies online, etc. have fun! :)

      My husband is disabled and I am his payee for Social Security. Apparently he called and ordered the book, and when they called to confirm the order, i told them he wasn't responsible for his money. Apparently he did use his credit card. Not sure how that happened. Probably late at night. When I asked what the product was and how much it had costed, they said they couldn't tell me what the free money book was or the cost if I wasn't the customer! OK. So I finally told them to pretend I was interested and found out how much and what it was supposed to be and since i couldn't get anywhere else with them, I came to the internet to find out. Since 98% of the comments I can find anywhere are negative, I will be having to go through the grueling process of canceling and returning and all that. Wonderful. Take advantage of a disabled man. He doesn't realize that if all that free money was just out there for everybody, Kevin Trudeau wouldn't need to write a book and add on all this other crap for money. He would have gotten all the money he wanted by using his own process. I think the positive comments are also scripted and fake. They seem like it. Will let you know if I get his money back.

      Kevin Mark Trudeau (born February 6, 1963) is an American author, convicted felon, radio personality and infomercial salesman, best known for promoting alternative medicine. A number of his television infomercials and several of his books, including Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About, allege that both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the pharmaceutical industry value profit more highly than treatments or cures.

      Trudeau's activities have been the subject of both criminal and civil action. He was convicted of larceny and credit card fraud in the early 1990s, and in 1998 paid a $500,000 fine for making false or misleading claims in his infomercials. In 2004, he consented to a lifetime ban on promoting products other than his books via infomercials.

      Okay, people... is this a witch hunt or what? Seriously... I have his book on Natural Cures. I got it for $1 at a garage sale. The book I have of his is very good and being a distrustful person I have looked into his claims. What I have found so far is that his information is accurate and anyone who understands nutrition and who reads food labels will know it for truth. If you want to lose weight or heal your body it takes work. If you want to save money or make money, that also takes work. I have a friend who gets about 80-90% off her groceries (no freakin' lie!) because she works hard clipping coupons and researching local sales. Improving yourself and your life takes time and effort. So, if you just want to read a book and dream but never get off your butt, then find some nice fiction novels to dig into. If you want to work hard at the health of your body and or finances then get a self-help book. Jeez... what part of self-help do you not understand?

      Another point I would like to make is that infomercials are simply a form of marketing and that they must pay for themselves somehow. I have never bought anything from one of those because they will always have to charge outrageous shipping & handling charges just to pay for the production costs and airtime. Never buy anything from an infomercial because you can usually find the same item from a department store or online. Even drug stores sell the "as seen on TV" stuff. Stores don't charge shipping and handling. Stop watching infomercials if you don't like them. There's lots of better ways to pass your time.

      As far as Keven Trudeaus goes... well he has to make money some how and he feels passionate about exposing big business and government for what it is. So more power to him and whatever. He may be a scoundrel, who knows, but people like to say the same thing about the current president be him black, white, republican, democrat or a Martian. I've even heard crap about Bill Gates. Google Bill Gates is a capitalist pig and you will find people who hate him. Google Bill Gates is a humanitarian and you will find people who love him. The internet is awesome that way.

      You are all a bunch of morons ... Debt Cures is common knowledge put into a book. Its simple things you can figure out by just looking around for the info.

      Diet Cures are the same. Not everyone should prescribe to the American Food and Drug Administrations idea of a healthy diet. They are in the business of FOOD AND DRUGS... so wouldnt they both go hand in hand? Be smart, stay away from artificial ingredients, aspartame, Sucralose, Crytalline Fructose, etc. Dont microwave your food, do the research on that. You have to destabilize the molecular structure of your food to heat it? You must be a moron to be that lazy, just use the stove so your food can at least keep SOME of its nutritional value. .. Free Money... I agree with the posts above, you can easily go online and find this money owed to you. I found 3 items in my name from my state, not much money but hey it is still pretty cool that there was money out there in my name. There are grants, assistance programs, etc, I actually found a very nice grant for helping build my struggling business. The money IS out there, but because LAZY AMERICAN PRIMA DONNAS dont want to put out the effort, they call it a SCAM... you want a scam... go online and register for a home business, and a few days later when they call you to sell you mentoring for 95% of the availability on your credit cards , THAT IS A SCAM.... PMI, Prosper Learning, Premier Mentoring, and the rest of those scammers are just looking to rob you...

      When you sign up for stupid books, make sure to read all the little disclosures that volunteer your money for monthly programs and website access fees, and monthly newsletters, etc..... Be smart... Remember when your mother, or grandparents told you to read the FINE PRINT? ya, maybe your lazy asses should have listened...

      Oh and for all of you who are bitching about the Playmates.... Dont be stupid, we all know that sex sells. He is making millions off of people who see it and remember it than order it. Its called marketing. Look at the adds for your DIET COKE that makes you fat, yet you see the add with the hot model and keep buying it. How about the HOT MODELS that advertise your Diet Pills that there will be a class action lawsuit against in 2 years because it causes heart disease, heart attacks, stroke, liver failure, kidney disease, diabetes, or whatever else they disclose on the commercials while you watch some models in swimsuits prance around? ... The general public is a bunch of suckers who look for an easy handout and then bitch when they dont like the handout or what it cost them. ... Hell, we have sold our liberties OVER AND OVER for free handouts from the government for years, yet you blame Obama for taking away your freedoms.... IDIOTS! Grow up, and read the fine print on your food, government, and especially your get rich quick schemes that you sign up for before you go online bitching about scammers. You SCAMMED YOURSELF, the fine print was there for you to read!

      HE FOUND IT ON A FREE WEBSITE AND IS MAKING YOU PAY FOR IT!!! This information is all free! Go to and search 100's of topics from grants to free publications. The government isn't hiding anything if you don't know it's because you haven't been told. It's an absolutely free website. No strings and gives you step by step instructions on anything you want to know. For Real don't pay anyone for any information Kevin Trudeau is ripping people off and it PISSES ME OFF!

      "Trudeau's activities have been the subject of both criminal and civil action. He was convicted of larceny and credit card fraud in the early 1990s, and in 1998 paid a $500,000 fine for making false or misleading claims in his infomercials. In 2004, he consented to a lifetime ban on promoting products other than his books via infomercials."

      I am a professional not-for-profit executive and know the grant world really well. Kevin is a motivated salesman, but his claims are not true. 99% of all grants have one stipulation that will exclude you. For instance, there is a grant for college funds but it is ONLY for Cherokee girls (need tribe documentation). Or it is for a Polish heritage boy who wants to be an engineer. The grants are very specific, not generic or open to all. Searching for a grant for which you can apply takes weeks. The process is so laborious that there are prefessionals who do nothing but grant research and/or grant writing. Some grants are for not-profit organizations and I have written many that are over 300 pages long. I know of no grant money which will pay you directly for your electric bill. Period. Those that do exist must come from a local community development corporation (CDC) which gets the money, then allocates it to applicants as long as the money does not run out. Again, the application will be at least 5 pages long and you must include tax returns, utility bills, etc. It takes work, folks.

      Check with the library first to check out the book for free. Or you can order the book on amazon, for at least $9.95, instead of $29.95, or more. I just looked at a infomercial, (investigation)that interviewed the actual people whom received real checks, and bank deposits however;they did show proof that they did receive the money. Actually there must be some realness to "FREE MONEY."

      I just saw a program where the woman claims to be investigating Kevin for fraud because of this Free Money book. First she says they tried to get him on the program but the government stopped her. She also keeps showing the call center & warehouse where the book can only be ordered from. The entire show she finds the people in the book & ask them did they really get free money and ask them to prove it. They then show her a bank statement with the deposit. After about four cases she still says she's investing fraud. If they have the money how is it still fraud? Then again someone showing a statement isn't proof either! Clearly this is nothing more than an infomercial to sell the book & other products. The number is advertized repeatedly. I know the only one making money is but what struck me as funny was if the book is true why weren't the call center people reading it and making all that money instead of working in his call center & warehouse? (lol)

      Honestly, they aren't scams. There is grant money. You just have to do the leg work and apply for it. You write a proposal, you request the specific grant based on your area and purpose. I am part of a non profit organization that sends us (members ) grant opportunities each year. Many small businesses have gotten grants to further their business. You don't need the books, but the books help you find the information quicker or in less time than on your own, If you are not good at researching them.

      I recently purchased the KT Free Money book. What a waste of time, ordered the book on Monday on Tuesday had to sign up for shoppersadvantage,com and before they would ship out the book.

      Keep in mind when you sign up for these two sites they are a dollar each for a trial, then renew monthly until canceled for $21.95 per month and $ 19.99 per month both of these site are a waste of time.

      Don't forget the Free Booklet on 25 Ways to make $5K per month from home this is packed with 25 of most ridiculous ways to make money from home - 2 of my favorites sell unwanted items on ebay and craigslist wow I would of never figured that out on my own.

      Yes there is grant money out there but in this book there are to many specific qualifications that rule out most people.

      Big deal if we return the book we can keep the 25 Ways it's not even worth the paper it's printed on.

      When I received the book went through it in 2 hours,a very easy read, searched the few websites listed and came up with nothing.

      So I canceled all memberships today and the book is going back tomorrow, and going to call my credit card company to cancel the card and get a new number so there is no chance of double billing.

      Think about it over 30 million copies sold, even if you return the book for the 19.95 less the shipping every time he definitely makes a ton of money just from the shipping alone, even if he profits $1.00 from every book shipped.

      That's the business sell a book full of nonsense, charge $9.95 for expedited shipping, probably has a bulk mail rate anyway, very low cost. Make money off the shipping and since many won't return the book it's a win win situation.

      I think it's a big scam.....

      It was a lesson learned KT is too good to be true, and I will never buy anything off late night television again.

      Good Luck All...

      30 million sold x $1.00

      That's $30,000,000.00 in FREE MONEY that KT doesn't want us to know about.

      The problem people is when times like this take place, we all have a tendency to find the next quick fix. We have the tendency to fall into the trap when someone out there is saying free money, it is key words like this that make us all have the tendency to become vulnerable. It is human nature and it is a crying shame that there are people out there that entrap the most vulnerable. We just have to realise that if our own government is yet to offer help to those in need, then a scam artist like Kevin can't either. I mean right now if I create a website, and promote a book that says free money, or you can be rich and make 100000 in one week, and charge 39 dollars, guess what if this offer is marketable people will buy into this as well..It is called consumer fraud and the crazy thing is people on the web get away with it

There was not one useful grant or source of "free money" in the entire book! I returned it and got my money back. Don't bother with these books. If you still want to read one you can buy them on at a greatly reduced price and on top of that you won't get bugged to buy other books. If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

      We know that there are now documented cases of those who used the book to get income that they were not expecting, and prroof has been given. However, most will not find that to to be the situation in their case. I am convinced that if anyone does get money from what they read in this book, they will highly endorse it, but if they do not, they will do just the opposite. A person will have to decide for themselves. I do find it amusing though.

      THESE WORDS POSTED FROM THE GREATEST BOOK OF ALL TIMES: ECCLESIASTES 12:8)"Vanity of vanities", saith the preacher; "all is vanity". 9)And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. 10)The preacher sought to find out acceptable words; and that 'which was' written was upright, 'even' words of truth. 11)The words of the wise 'are' as goads, as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, 'which' are given from one shepherd. 12)And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end: and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear (reference) GOD, and keep HIS commandments: for this 'is' the whole duty of man. 14) For GOD shall bring every work into judgement, with every secret thing, whether 'it be' good, or whether 'it be' evil."

      If you will notice Kevin says that the people who know and qualify will recieve the money. Not every person who applies will get money. That's not what he claims. It amazes me about some people how when hearing about something like this they all say its a scam. After reading some of your complaints on how Kevin Trudeau is a fraud and the things he says aren't true. You then say that everything he says in his books can be found with a little work. People get off your asses and actually apply yourself to something and you just might find that the things that some people tell you just might be true. Regardless of how it sounds to you. What he says about how a bill is put together is true. Alot of the stuff he puts in his books are common sense. If you really apply yourself ( there's that word again)you will find this out. People these days want hand outs. Think that everybody owes them somehow. Everything Trudeau says in his books are absolutely true. If it wasn't, the government wouldn't be trying to shut him up. Since when have you ever seen the government try to stop someone from saying something that wasn't true! If it ain't true. It won't last.

      I think kevin Trudeau is a con man who preys on the less fortunate. My mother-in-law at the age of 78 years old only wanted to do somthing nice for her family.By purchasing the books that promise you a better life grandma really felt good about doing somthing for her family.After being double charched for something she really cant afford in the first place the poor woman was heart broken to find out it was all a scam. Lets face it, its the government do you really think their going to give away money that they work so hard to take from you in the first place? Please dont be a victim. I only wish i could get my mother-in-laws money back. Since that will never happen, I would love to have Kevin Trudeau to meet my mother-in-law and explain to her how it is just a scam for him to make money. And since that will never happen,i just hope people will read this and be warned. If it was up to me I would burn all his books.

      Trudeau's Free Money book offer is a classic bait and switch. They offer a coaching network for $29.95/month and a newsletter for $140/year. In return for signing up for these services they offer gift cards from Walmart. If you choose not to continue with these services, and you cancel you had better hold on to your cancel confirmation number or they will continue to charge your account and refuse to reimburse your account.
