written by reader Harry Dent group dissolving…readers handed off to Banyan Hill

By sylviaw37, April 2, 2020

Does anyone know why Harry Dent sold Dent Research? Maybe he was just done with it?
I was a lifetime member, and I liked some of their analysts.
Now I’m handed off to Paul Mampilly and Banyan Hill. Is there anybody worth listening to at Banyan Hill? I’m not excited about digging through all their stuff.

Hey everyone, I know I’m a little late to the party, but I called Banyan Hill this morning, as I too was a lifetime Boom & Bust subscriber. On the first attempt, I got through within 2 minutes and was able to speak with a representative. He was very friendly and offered me a prorated refund.

Just an FYI: My refund of over $4,000 was authorized by the representative on 4/8 but has not hit my credit card yet. They said 3-5 business days, so one more day in that window. Also, to be fair, the credit card number has changed since I paid for the membership 4 years ago, so they may end up sending a check. But just wanted to post…

Just an fyi on last post regarding credit posting to older account number. I was nervously awaiting my funds and hoping there were no glitches or other problems. I waited the 3 – 5 days but ended up calling today.

First…the money was sent by Banyan. A small portion had already shown up in my account under my recent credit card number. It was a prorated portion of my annual membership fee. I used a newer card number for that original transaction and it went through as early as last week.

The balance (substantially over $4K) was reported to be taken care of but it had not yet shown up. This was the amount charged for the Network Service some time ago. I had to go to my bank to research this. It took a while, but the found the money in the system, although it has not shown up on my credit card balance sheet yet. The bank assured me it was there, but it could take a couple of weeks until it hits my monthly statement. It gets too complicated to explain the inner workings of the bank but I am confident the money was paid by Banyan.

If you are nervous…I strongly suggest that you go through your bank. It should be there.

Now…if only I could get Banyan Hill to stop trying to sell every new program under the sun…

Several of you report being promised refunds, all or partial. Only one commenter seems to have actually seen the funds in his account. I’m wondering how many of you readers have actually RECEIVED the promised funds? Is Banyan just making promises, or are they actually sending the refunds?

Hi Everyone, I was in the same boat with you, B&B lifetime subscription and I received a prorated refund from Banyan Hill to my credit card. Dent’s new website for newsletters is:

https://hsdpublishing.wpengine.com/

I received the following email from them today:

Research from Harry Dent, Rodney Johnson, and Charles Sizemore, all available in one place!

Starting this Friday, April 24, Harry Dent and Rodney Johnson will bring you all of the research with none of the hype. One subscription gets you both newsletters!
Investors looking for income can sign up for Charles Sizemore’s newsletter, also available through HS Dent.

The HS Dent Forecast
Harry will be writing a monthly newsletter, the HS Dent Forecast, and providing market updates as conditions warrant. Using his unique blend of demographics, economics, and cycles, Harry will give you a critical, unvarnished view of where we are today and what lies ahead. Here’s a hint… he doesn’t favor gold!

The Rodney Johnson Report
Relying on his thirty-plus years in the financial industry, Rodney brings you insight and analysis on the equity and credit markets, as well as long-term economic forecasts based on generational changes. Rodney also maintains a model investment portfolio based on his and Harry’s research.

Also Available,
The Sizemore Income Letter
Long-time Dent readers will recognize the name Charles Sizemore. He has been affiliated with Dent for almost 20 years. For the past several years, Charles has written a popular income-based newsletter, and he will continue that as the Sizemore Income Letter.

Both subscriptions, the combined HS Dent Forecast and Rodney Johnson Report as well as the Sizemore Income Letter, will be available this Friday at http://www.hsdent.com.

We recognize that many loyal subscribers are working through the change from our old publisher to our new, independent platform. Because of that, we will be offering special pricing for a limited time.

Be sure to watch your inbox this Friday when we open the newsletters to subscribers, we’ll send you an email with all the details including the special pricing!

Harry, Rodney, and Charles

Has anyone on this group not called and received a refund? I notice that Harry and Rodney are launching their new service tomorrow (April 24). I have reached out to see if former Network subs will get any special consideration. I’ll keep you all posted. Personally, if all we get is moved to another service with some lame “early bird launch” gimmick intended for the general public I’m likely out.

Back in April I tried calling Baynan Hill and kept getting put on hold or even cut off. I finally wrote to request my refund. After a month, I wrote again, this time using certified mail. Also sent to Charles Street Research and Agora, who apparently owns them both. Eventually both pieces of B.H. mail were returned, citing incorrect address (although it’s the one on B.H.’s website and mailings). I finally discovered they had a physical address in Baltimore. Again I used certified mail. I was eventually notified by Post Office that my letter was sent to yet another address, but was eventually delivered. That was over a month ago. I have had zero replies to any of the letters. Why do I think I’m being ignored? Did all you who say you were getting refunds ACTUALLY receive them? I sure don’t have much regard for B.H. doing the right thing at this point.

Harry Dent had to sell his shtick because GOLD maintains prices above $500./oz Even Harry has tired of his rhetoric.
