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.

      Common sense tells you that if he "makes no money off the sales" and he's doing this only as a "public service" then why does he not just tell you on tv how to do it. Like he doesn't give you ONE example website to go on or anything. If it is such a public service, he shouldn't make you buy anything to get the information.. scam scam scam.....

      Let's settle this once and for all. Kevin Trudeau is a crook, con artist, and swindler who has been ordered by courts to stop pandering his false products many times. He ignores these writs and continues selling his lying infomercials and will have to be put behind bars before he stops. Google "Kevin Trudeau" and see the long list of hits that clearly describe his felonious activities and efforts to put an end to his slimy tactics. Anyone who continues being sucked in by his crap has only him or herself to blame when they're dissatisfied since he's only selling books to make money and not to help anyone but himself. Caveat Emptor!

      I checked his book out of the library. Of the thousads of claims I only qualified for 2. At the end of the application there is a required $39.95 fee for the cost of internet advertising. I deleted my name, address and phone number. I was called repeated by a strong accented person.They wouldn't take "I'm no longer interested please don't call again "For weeks it went on. I would reject the number only to be called by another person with a slightly different number. I'm glad I didn't put in any financial information! What a scam!!!Kevin you'll get your due for being a lier and cheat.

      Ever hear of the phrase, if it's too good to be true, it probably is? Scam artists like Trudeau rely on gullible people that think they can get rich without making much of an effort. If it were that easy, everyone would be rich. Before he started making infomercials, he was convicted of fraud for posing as a doctor and cashing $80,000 in checks followed by printing credit cards using the social security numbers of his first "customers" from the first book he wrote. I hope they throw this thief in jail for a long time.

      I've been researching for more than 10 years in the fields of martial arts, health, nutrition, success principles, happiness and spiritual enlightenment and as a matter of fact I never found anything as nearly powerful as the GIN training is.

      My life has been positively impacted in all its aspects by GIN and it's getting better every day.

      I'm building great relationships with fantastic people with great commitments, focus and responsibilities; positive enthusiastic people that do not talk the talk but walk the walk, and have a great heart.

      If you ever had the opportunity to meet Kevin Trudeau in person you know he is a real gentlemen and a very nice and kind person.

      Kevin is being massively attacked by the mainstream media because he is exposing the corruption between governments and the pharmaceutical industry and more.

      Some people are saying that Kevin is telling lies and has produced fraudulent infomercials and books but I have a question for these people:

      "Have you ever tried to do what he is suggesting in his books?"

      I did. And my life dramatically improved. I would suggest to this negative people to consider that "to know and not to do, is not to know".

      Many people are talking about the subjects of natural health and government corruption today but most of them are not able to reach a huge audience.

      Kevin is very good in communication and sales so therefore his ability to reach out the masses is huge, and that's why the power that be fear him so much and it's trying to stop him in every way.

      Kevin is not giving up because this is a very important legal battle concerning the freedom of speech and if lost, could become a precedent and the basis to stop the freedom of speech of us all.

      Kevin is leading by example, showing the only thing to fear is fear itself, as fear it's only False Evidence Appearing Real.

      People are waking up. Please remember that everything begins inside yourself and you can be, do have everything you want in your life if you believe it.

      The hundreds, thousands monkeys are out now, and counting. We are unstoppable and it's going to be an exciting ride.

      Thank you so much Kevin for taking this huge challenge to shed light on reality and protect the freedom of speech for us all.

      With Love and Light

      What a strange story!

      I know a lot of people who bought that book, and I bought it myself. I DO NOT KNOW a single person who wants the money back for that book! ... so !?!

      The money that I invested in the Club is the best ever investment in my whole Life. It is an investment in "Personal Development", and that value is inestimable! My Life changed only for the BEST since that I am in the Club!

      Here some more:

      The Man that put this fabulous Training together for the Club is a Hero, and the Media is trying to destroy .... Easy ... to destroy what you don't know! And some people ... who don't know too ... are listening to the Media, and agree and believe :-(

      I want to thank KT for all he did, because my Life changed so much in the last 2 Years, and only for the best! I want to thank KT for this fabulous Club, because without the Club, I would never be what I am now. I would never be the person that I became. I would never have the Friendships and Relationships that I found in the Club. I would never have the strength of character and personality that I have now. I would never have the Business Opportunities that I have now. I would never live the Life that I live now, with all the Happiness, the travel, and all those little things every day! I am a Life-Time GIN Member !! I am proud of our Club, and ... if YOU are not a Member yet, and read this, I can only strongly advise you to consider to become a Member !!

      You don't know what you don't know ! You have to "live" the Club!

      Thank You Kevin!!

      The training KT has offered in the form of Your Wish Is Your Command has been nothing short of spectacula. Before listening to it I wasn’t doing much. I was very lost and broke. Through the training KT has offered and the opportunities I’ve gotten since becoming a member of the global Information network I have been able to turn my life around financially and have given my life a brand new meaning and purpose that didn’t exist prior to KT and GIN.

      My thoughts and energy go out to you Kevin; you have never let any of us who know the truth down. Everything will happen exactly as it should in the best possible outcome.

Being a person on disability, and looking to get money, seems that I was shelling out more money than getting money.... just to file the papers it cost, just to look at the list of free government programs it cost money. To make a long story short... keep your money and don't waste it on this crap.

      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. No wonder he's a huge financial success!

      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.

      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.

      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."

      I'm curious to know if anyone who has ordered the book by phone agreed to any of the free trials. If so did any of you recieve the walmart gift cards promised to you just for trying the free 30 day trials which you can cancell at anytime?

      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 books might be helpfull but when I read them I'm not interesten in reading about how much other people found over and over. Its a waste of reading time. Then when you offered these so called FREE BOOKS for the cost of SHIPPING nad HANDLING your not telling the people that there paying (10 THE SHIPPING COST) Its a scam.

      I purchased Matthew Lesko's book which is the same type of book as KT's. I read it cover to cover and found it a total rip off. 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!

      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

      kevin doesn't make any money off book yeah right

      This may be a true statement, he does not make any money off the book.

      HE MAKES MONEY OFF THE SHIPPING. Even if he profits a buck off ever book do the math

      30 million sold x $1.00

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

      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...

      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 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)

      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 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.

      I hope you people realize that most nonprofit pay for 40-60% of their operating expenses through grants and donations. People are stupid. Learn what a grant is. I don't know if they're as easy as what the book says, but you can get buttloads of money from them.

      "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."
