What’s the “$1.10 A Day Retirement Plan?”

I know that many of you have seen the teasers for the “$1.10 a Day Retirement Plan” that are being sent around the interwebs by the folks at the 12% Letter — not many folks have the email marketing might of Stansberry & Associates, that letter’s publisher, and lots of you have been asking about […]

Explained: “A.O.P. — The Little-Known Investment That’s Outperforming, Everything!”

I guess we should really be calling this “A.O.P. 2.0″, since the Stansberry folks used this same basic marketing pitch on investors about five years ago — though I think that was in service of their S&A Resource Report (then called the S&A Oil Report), and this one is an ad for the relatively conservative, […]

“A FEdEx Package You Don’t EVER Want to Receive …”

One of the hallmarks of a good marketer is that they spin everything that happens to them into something promotional — so it is with the Stansberry folks, who are surely among the better marketers out there in newsletter-land. Their latest pitch is that they’ve gotten “scary” letters from the lawyers of one of the […]

“George Bush’s Secret Retirement Legacy”

We haven’t covered the 12% Letter in these pages for a few months, if memory serves, so I was pleased to get several questions from readers about their latest teaser for the “secret retirement legacy” that’s apparently been offered up by George Bush (the dumber one, not the older one). Did I just type that […]

“Early Wal-tirement: How to get in from the Very Beginning. “

Time with family and bloated turkey-filled bellies did nothing to slow down the avalanche of newsletter teaser ads — heck, we even saw plenty of “black Friday” deals for all those folks who are hoping to stuff a newsletter subscription into little Timmy’s Christmas stocking (yay!) But perhaps the most popular one that’s been sent […]

“The Secret of the ‘Fed Trade’” (Black Market Income)

OK, you can stop asking now — because we’re just about to finish up with our latest multi-part series, covering the “loopholes” from the “Black Market Income” teaser for Stansberry’s 12% Letter. This letter pitches the idea that they have a secret website that “Wall Street” doesn’t want you to see — all about how […]

“Toronto’s 13% Income Secret” (Black Market Income)

Well, I told you yesterday that I’d be following up on the teaser from 12% Letter for their “Black Market Income” website that presents a variety of ways of increasing your investment income … so let’s do it! If you missed yesterday, I gave a quick run-through of several of the “loopholes” that Dan Ferris […]

“Black Market Income” from the 12% Letter?

A couple variations on this teaser about “black market income” have been rolling around the marketplace for months now — the actual investments are still relatively normal, mainstream-ish companies and strategies, just as they were when the 12% Letter called parts of this “black market income” strategy by other names, which is why I haven’t […]

“The secret toll-free phone call that enables you to increase your dividend yield by 10-times or more”

I’ve been getting lots of questions about this secret toll-free phone number this week, so I thought I should try to take a look for you today. Apparently it’s all about some way to boost your dividend by calling a special phone number — which can’t help but conjure up a mental image of vast […]

“America’s #1 Millionaire Maker” – Tom Dyson

Tom Dyson edits the 12% Letter — a newsletter that, you will probably be unsurprised to hear, aims to recommend investments that provide high income using dividends (and other strategies). His publisher has been pushing out an ad lately that touts their “dividend capture” strategy, which I don’t have the heart to describe yet again […]

“One Share Millionaire” with the “U.S. Postal Secret”

Quite a number of you, it appears, have seen this recent ad from Stansberry & Associates, trying to sell you a subscription to the 12% Letter by Tom Dyson. The teaser begins with the intriguing promise that there’s a “Postal secret” that will let you become a “1 share millionaire.”
“Whether stocks go up or down… some companies return tens of thousands of dollars a month starting with just a single share. But you can’t buy them on the market: They’re available through the U.S. mail. ‘It’s almost impossible not to make money’… says the SF Chronicle. What?

The 424 Dividend Boost — 12% Letter

“While most folks earn tiny 2%-6% dividends on Blue Chips (like Pepsi, Johnson & Johnson, and AT&T) savvy Americans are secretly “boosting” those small yields to dizzying heights – earning incredible 30%-50% on the exact same shares. Originally available only to executives at America’s richest Blue Chip firms, this income secret is now available to […]

“Bonded Trusts — Bailout Loophole Creates Massive Windfall”

Today’s investment teaser ad comes to us from the fine folks at Stansberry & Associates — this time it’s from Tom Dyson, for his 12% Letter … which, as you might imagine, is aimed at dividend income. And it is, at least, more honestly named than the “25% Cash Machine” that another publishing house offers […]

“U.S. 801K Plans — double the returns from 401Ks!”

There’s a new teaser going around from a Stansberry newsletter, this time it’s from the 12% Letter by Tom Dyson, and it’s teasing us about a secret retirement plan they call the 801K. They’ve got a special report to send you called How to build a $1,000,000 Retirement with “U.S. 801(k) Plans” … and all […]
