written by reader Big Tobacco Must Pay Master-Settlement handbook from Total Wealth Alert Keith Fitz-Gerald

By gunfighter53, May 27, 2017

Anyone have some knowledge of the master settlement handbook ” Big Tobacco Must Pay” – posted by Keith Fitz-Gerald in his Total Wealth Alert . I did a quick search and didn’t find anything in the search on Stock Gumshoe.
Thank you

E-mail lead–
In November 1998, the ”Big Four of Big Tobacco” reached a landmark settlement known as the ”Master Settlement Agreement,” where they agreed to pay a historic $206 billion to 46 states and U.S. territories. What you may not realize is that you could claim a tax-free portion of this money.

On the Internet posting he has this as part of his Give-aways if you are make a subscription to his flagship publication, Money Map Report.

A Money Morning Exclusive ( April 2017)
For Release: May 27, 2017
If you’re a United States taxpayer, please pay close attention to the following message.
You probably know that back in November of 1998, the ”Big Four of Big Tobacco” were sued for using misleading advertisements and manipulating scientific research.
And in a landmark settlement they agreed to pay a historic sum of money in perpetuity to those affected.
This became known as the Master Settlement Agreement.
And it stipulated that for the first 25 years of the deal, a bare minimum of $206 billion was to be awarded to those eligible to collect.
But the most important word in this agreement is ”perpetuity.”
This Master Settlement Agreement has no end date. Big Tobacco is legally obligated to pay out this cash forever.
In fact, we estimate they’ve been paying out about $686 million a month.
And it may surprise you to learn that you could personally claim a tax-free portion of this settlement!
Every month a check made out for $2,300 could arrive in your mailbox.
Even if you’ve never smoked. And neither has anybody in your family.

As soon as I heard Mathew Quigly mentioned in another presentation like this I knew it was a sham. He’s a character from the movie ” Quigly Down Under”

That’s the first place I researched and RIPOFF REPORTS. You can’t get nothing. Big Tobacco can’t either. They gotta borrow from a stipend for the state.

Just what drives you to think this is a scam? Just because you have no amount of this settlement doesn’t mean it’s a scam.

With reason and logic. Of course this is all bullshit, you really think anyone in the U.S. can just say, “Hey, I want my piece!” and get $2,000+ from the tobacco industry, tax free? As if!

Tnx, Lynne: Fitz-G is currently all over the web stating “Big Tobacco Must Pay…” Up here, WA State used/using the ’98 settlement to bail out the General Fund… Ole Fitz is SELLING his Investing Letter, $129 for a year. (click out/remain on page) Then, it becomes $79. (click out/remain on page)… Shoot, only $19 bucks for 6 mos of his service, a bunch of pamphlets and “Big Tobacco Must Pay” brochure, you are IN. It is an investment opportunity, $250 for each deal (Front-end Fee I suppose). The $2300 a month is his “average”. Don’t have to be a smoker… Read More ยป

I guess you could get a monthly payment. However, it would probably involve SS Disability. And if you are already on SS you can kiss that good-bye

I was exposed to cigarette smoke in the US Navy for four years on a US Navy ship without my being able to require a smoke free environment. This in turn caused me to start smoking as I was again exposed to it in my everyday job for the next 15 years.
I now severe greatly and have to have a Bipap/oxygen machine everyday of my life now. I deserve compensation from this Agreement!

Read the Master Settlement Agreement for yourself at WIKIPEDIA. An individual can NOT collect any funds.

Wikipedia does NOT say that. Wikipedia is randomly edited by anyone. It’s filled with biased disinformation. I feel sorry for you if you make decisions based on what some shmuck wrote at wiki!

Yes, anyone can edit but they have editors who review and try to make sure its as accurate as possible. So dont talk like you know how thinks work and base opinions on that.

Travis–It would be great if you could also research the 26F program that Keith Fitzgerald and others also try to say people can profit from. And, thanks for all of your info on the Tobacco Settlement–Thanks Frankie

Tnx, Travis: Excellent Article! Now I know Muni Bonds. IF I had a portfolio where $500K represented 10% of the portfolio, I would consider the Tobacco Bonds. $2300/mo on that, ain’t too bad (5%)… Sounded like Fitz’s $250 was a front end load of some sort… What am I going to doux with a $1 dollar return on that…?

You go to your local Wal-Mart, apply for a job, and work like the rest of us. No free hand outs, Hillary didn’t win and you’re not a slave to the government! No one’s going to give you jack for free – this is a scam, obviously.

Many people believe what they hear on the radio or Fox TV and then base all their opinions on whatever they understand. Unfortunately they are deluding themselves and gave their brains away for free. Education has failed miserably.

So based on your judgement the person you directed your comment to does not work like you or me because he wants a piece of the tobacco pie. Maybe this person
is a full time smoker who wants compensation and deserves it. Keep your judgements to yourself you wont get anything done here by using them.

Scam How

How does one collect the money? We shouldn’t have to pay $39 to some scammer for the info. Plus if this were true, why would he need our $39?? He’d be making his $6000 a month himself!

This is probably money paid to the state govs, nothing more. How does this scammer get away with his scam vids and pages? at purchases.moneymappress I’m linking this scam page with my aka here, DON”T BUY!!!

My understanding of that Deal was that if Tobacco Co’s paid in then no individual could sue them. It’s sort of like the Workers Comp deal if your company has it then you can not sue them for injury. It’s sort of like Mafia protection.
