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.

I was a Network member with Dent. Now apparently I’m Banyan Hill’s equivalent of that. I had grown disillusioned with the Dent team: they seemed to 1) talk without detail, or 2)talk with so much detail that the point was hard to ascertain. Some of their analysts simply said buy or sell this or that, without any supporting data. Some talked ad naseum, and a few of them did credible jobs. And there were way too many spelling errors for such a supposedly knowledgeable organization. I finally got to the point where I ignored most of their newsletters and instead… Read More »

I liked Harry Dent’s “big picture” forecast of where our economy and markets are headed. In his last video “rant” before he sold to Banyan Hill he argued that we are entering what will be the “Greatest Depression” in history. He feels that the Dow will eventually crash to between 800 and 1,200 by the end of 2022. A forecast similar to Bob Prechter’s of Elliott Wave International. I agree with their overall forecasts. Gerald Celente (“TRENDS JOURNAL”) and many others are also saying that we have entered a depression. In Banyan Hill’s transition material they wish Harry and his… Read More »

I’m with you all. I was a Dent Network sub for a few years mostly for the insights of Harry. I’ve been reading his material for years and really use his insight to play my own long term plans. I’m really disappointed that we have been summarily handed off to some other second rate group for which we didn’t pay to become lifetime members. I’m going to track whatever the next chapter is for Dent. No matter the quality of Banyan… I didn’t pay for that… I paid for Dent.

I concur. I didn’t pay much attention to the emails the last few days as the Covid thing has totally shut my business down and, subsequently, has been holding my attention. When I finally caught up and noticed that I have been whisked off to Banyan Hill, I was shocked and disappointed and betrayed. I had a lifetime Network contract with Dent Research…not Banyan Hill and I feel betrayed, actually by both sides of the transition. I paid for Harry’s insights and Lance and Adams recommendations and I am not impressed with the offer to have Adam’s recommendations continue “free… Read More »

Now you have my attention. I’m going to attempt to get my money back. How would we go about a class action? We need the contact list of every Dent Network member that was out there… from the looks of the Dent message, they themselves were cut off from the contact list. I would imagine that the suit would go against either Banyan Hill or Agora. I would imagine it goes after Agora since they are the ones who initially took our money?

No surprise there. Their “customer service” was atrocious.

I was most interested in Lance Gaitan’s recommendations. I am not eager to pay either Harry Dent or Lance again, after having already paid for a lifetime membership. I find it hard to believe that they are totally innocent in this. Some of the billions of emails I’ve received so far from Banyan Hill seem incredibly out of touch with current market and world conditions…recommending stocks and acting like everything is normal. In addition to David Stockman, I was looking forward to hearing more from Michael Coolbaugh, but I haven’t heard from him either. David Stockman always says his purpose… Read More »

We all paid a lot of money for our Network memberships. It my case, it was really a lot of money relative to my net worth. I don’t think it would be right and just to simply say “oh well” and let these guys off the hook without consequence. My preference would be to maintain our relationship with these guys at no additional cost per our agreement. Perhaps our best approach would be to “be nice” in round one of our contacts and ask for what the promised us. If we could coordinate the timing of a response to them… Read More »

Robert: There must be other blogs out there addressing this subject. Maybe you’re the guy to find them and start maintaining a list of those who are not happy with this outcome? You never know when such information might be helpful in countering BH with Plan B if they don’t do the right thing with our subscriptions. We all probably bought in to our lifetime subscriptions at different times and different dollar amounts, but I’ll bet that in every case those dollar amounts were quite high. Maybe BH should nip this growing outrage in the bud by just refunding our… Read More »

Hi Sylvia, This morning I called Banyan Hill per the contact information that you were able to provide us from http://www.HarryDent.com itself. I had to endure a wait time, but I did get through to customer service. A gal named “Courtney” took my call, and she did get my money for both Stockman’s newsletter and Dent’s “BOOM & BUST” refunded– which could take several days to process. I believe that you will find that the majority of your life-time membership fee(s) will be refunded to you. Thanks for alerting us to begin with. – Brad

Brad, please let us know when you actually get your money. The details of this transaction so far make me wonder if you will actually is the refund. Tried to get in on the line several times but never was able to get past that e very long hold.

Pretty happy about the level of interaction in this feed. I’m no expert but I think we should get organized and at least make a pitch. Would it be prudent to get everyone’s email address or start a reddit group so we can get other folks out there who have been ripped off by this bait and switch? I have no problem approaching Harry Dent and asking for lifetime admission on behalf of us all. I do agree that sooner rather than later is better. I’d be interested in everyone’s thoughts on best ways to get out to the rest… Read More »

Hi, I am in the same boat having paid for a lifetime subscription which is now bust. I am VERY unhappy about this. Please include me in any legal action or attempts to get refunds.

Just an FYI: I sent one or two additional comments to this blog and they did not go through. One specifically said that I sent a note to Shannon Sands as an initial inquiry regarding a refund for Network members. It seems to have disappeared. It was just a short note asking how we go about getting our refunds. My goal was to see what sort of response we got and to whom they would direct the “buck passing”.

ATTENTION: I have set up an email account. If you were a Dent Network member and you wish to be part of the group that makes an attempt to either restore our lifetime membership with Dent wherever he goes or get a refund please send an email to:
TEAMDENT@PROTONMAIL.COM

Thanks Sylvia for starting this discussion. And to Robert and Jeff and others ideas. I am(was) Boom & Bust Elite Lifetime (passed to the Bauman Letter), and Charles’ Sizemore Peak Income (passed to Banyan Hills’ Alpha Investor). Yes, Dent Research customer service was very slow, but I would still like to follow Harry and Rodney. Like Robert, I know little about social networks / and do not use Facebook, nor Twitter, nor ……. I will send an email to Jeff’s above post.

I was dumped by HSDent also. Had lifetime sub. I’m so disapointed with Harry for lack of ethics. I’ve been a paid follower and vocal promoter for many years.
If Harry Dent decided to live in a cave and dissapear that would be fine but he’s still on the circuit with exactly what we paid for.

thanks

Hi,

I too am a former lifetime Dent Network member. I believe Harry and the team knew exactly what they were doing when they sold the business. They probably figured “let’s do this for a few years, make some money, and then get out.”

Isn’t it odd that none of the newsletter editors reached out to us about the sale? If Dent was truly committed to his subscribers, we would not be having this discussion.

I for one would like a full refund for my Network Membership.

Amen! Dent HAD to know about this. Full refund is the only way to go.

Thank you Jeff…I have sent an email to the address you created.

I do have an interest in Harry’s future offerings, but his public (free) offerings might be sufficient for me. I was primarily following Lance , Adam, and Charles who might not work with Harry in the future. If they do, I would want access to that.

I looked on Stocktwits and none of them are active there.

I have begun picking through the Banyan Hill offerings and found a couple that I will check out. I hope I can turn off the others.

Please join the group of subscribers who are seeking recourse from Harry and the other stakeholders by emailing teamdent@protonmail.com and joining the Reddit group https://www.reddit.com/r/harrydent/ – we will be organizing through these two venues to determine the next action. Thanks!

Hello all, found a number of people on Twitter asking Harry about the bait and switch and it doesn’t appear that he is responding. Posts have been put into comments on many but now have been blocked as spam from a ghost account. Can someone carry the torch now? Either open a Twitter account or use your own. Go to every person who has commented on Harry’s comments regarding the switch and reply to their comment.
