We’re rerunning this piece because it continues to be one of the most asked-for explanations on the Stock Gumshoe website. What follows below was originally published in mid-2012, it has been updated for the change in silver values but otherwise remains unchanged. Dr. David Eifrig over at Stansberry’s Retirement Millionaire newsletter has been teasing us […]

Whadda we love? Ridiculous promises!

Well, and we also love you — of course. Just wanted to make sure you know that on this lovely Valentine’s Day. We are inundated every day with email ads that our loyal readers forward on to us, and we appreciate every one — we want to know who’s promising you 1,000% returns, or who’s […]

Can you make $720 in 24 hours with the “Godfather Offer?”

Never does this get boring. Every time thing seem to run a little dry here at Gumshoe HQ, and the reservoir of hypetastic teasers dips a little bit below the intake pipe … well, the flood comes again, regular as the rains (if not quite as seasonal). That’s how it’s been for a thousand teaser […]

How can you find sacks of treasure located around 776 cities around the country?

Dr. David Eifrig, who I’ve written about once or twice before, has stepped away from his usual Retirement Millionaire topics to write about an individual stock — well, tease us about a stock, anyway. If you’ll sign up for the good doctor’s newsletter to find out about his favorite retirement freebies and savings strategies, he’ll […]

“How to Buy U.S. Government Backed Silver for $1.25, and get a Free Retirement Loan”

This ad sounds a little bit like a very popular one we looked at a few months back — then, it was for $1 “Silver Shots”, and it was a teaser for a leveraged derivative trade on silver futures (or, in plainer speak, it was for long-term call options on the SLV ETF). If you […]
