“Better than Bitcoin”: The “Secret Currency” Pitched by Steve Sjuggerud and the Stansberry Folks

A sudden avalanche of folks have been asking about this pitch again, so I thought I’d re-share and update my thoughts on something I wrote in the Friday File for the Irregulars back in October … … from my quick glance, the spiel from the Stansberry folks hasn’t changed much for this “Secret Currency” since […]

“I found a secret way to make 400% with gov’t-issued bullion – Even if gold NEVER goes up another penny in value”

This story has been making the rounds for quite a while — and in different versions, I’ve written about essentially this same pitch before … but it’s been years since it really hit the Gumshoe radar, and folks keep asking, so I thought I’d check out this latest version of the ad for you. The […]

“Treasury’s Gold Glitch: Make Money AFTER Gold Rises” Sjuggerud

Those of you who have long toiled in the dusty, grimy classrooms of Gumshoe University will probably recognize this one — it’s an ad that has been around for years, with adjustments and variations depending on the market’s pulse and on the price of gold. The essential promise is that Steve Sjuggerud has found a […]

“SSA-521: How to Boost Your Social Security Payments By $1,033 Per Month.”

This is actually an odd little teaser that a few readers sent in to me recently — including one who offered a solution that is actually correct (forgot to ask for permission, so I won’t mention the name). Smart readers here, as always. What we get here, in exchange for subscribing to Steve Sjuggerud’s True […]

“Guaranteed Retirement Contract — Income For Life!” Sjuggerud

Steve Sjuggerud, whose name I think I have probably spelled half a dozen different ways in the last couple years, has a new ad for his True Wealth newsletter — and it’s teasing yet another compelling investment idea with a made-up name and an incredible promise. Here’s how the ad opens: “Take 10 minutes to […]

Another Fan of SunPower?

Just a quick note here for you, no complicated teaser to suss out. I received a brief email from Steve Sjuggerud, one of those Daily Wealth missives, and in it he teased a recent recommendation as follows: “For my paid subscribers, I uncovered an extraordinary opportunity – the “Hillary Trade.” I found a tech stock […]

“Safe, Cheap, and in a Clear Uptrend” Sjuggerud

This one comes in as part of a teaser letter for Steve Sjuggerud’s special higher cost newsletter, Sjuggerud Confidential … “the thing is, finding the bank that didn’t get into U.S. real estate, didn’t fall victim to exotic financial instruments, and didn’t take on too much risk, is like trying to find a needle in […]

“As close to a perfect investment … as I’m going to get”

We’ve passed the one year anniversary of the Gumshoe’s first writing in this space with little fanfare, I’m afraid. It’s OK, I know you meant to send flowers. It’s the thought that counts. And it was actually when I was going back through my old stuff and trying to figure out exactly what day I […]

Sjuggerud: “The Secret Currency”

I’ve had dozens of readers send this one along, most with a long line of question marks. The teaser has been around for a while (a couple years, as far as I can tell), but it continues to spark interest — especially with the dollar at ridiculous lows, inflation fears bubbling, and gold near $1,000 […]

“Virtual Florida Retirement — Tax-Free Income!”

“And collect up to $3,000 a month in TAX FREE income starting as early as Feb. 13, 2008.” That’s how a recent email teaser ad from Stansberry and Associates for Steve Sjuggerud’s True Wealth newsletter opens — and this kind of investment is always very appealing for folks when stocks are in crisis mode, as […]

“Virtual Banks: Government Economic Security Fund”

Well, here’s another teaser that appears to have been resurrected from the backfiles, for a government-created “economic security fund” that “could help you safely earn 180% or more over next 2 years.” The last time around, more or less the same teaser email, for Steve Sjuggerud’s service with Stansberry and Associates, went around with the […]

“Macau Property Penny Stock”

A few of you have called my attention to a teaser that’s been making the rounds recently, from Steve Sjuggerud, for the Sjuggerud Confidential newsletter ($1,000). He’s saying that he has found a penny stock that is safe enough for him to recommend, and it’s a Macau property play. Unfortunately, the clues given are extraordinarily […]
