There is no shortage of wants in this world. Everyone wishes that they had just a bit more money for unfinished projects or a dream vacation. This is probably the reason why so many different companies claim that you can make a fortune by doing little to no work at all. The newest company to come out making claims that you can earn money hand over fist with little to no work is Freedom Checks sponsored by Banyan Hill Publishing.
No doubt you have seen the commercial about how there is money left on the table from large corporations. According to the promotional video there are 568 companies that are giving money away if you are smart enough to stake a claim. The commercial states how it doesn’t matter your race, age, or background as long as you jump on the companies Banyan Hill Publishing promotes, you can earn a check. So is this a real thing? Can it be so easy as to stake your claim and have money rolling in with no work on your part?
What Is Banyan Hill Publishing?
Banyan Hill Publishing is an investment company. Their job is to scour through the different companies on the stock market and make an educated guess on which stocks will do well according to their analysis. When you go to their site, you will see under their logo that they are America’s number 1 source for profitable investing.
A simple search to see how long Banyan Hill Publishing has been in business will show you that they have been online since August 10, 2015. Who.is shows no information on who runs the site. You will find however an address located in Florida and listed under the organization of Sovereign Offshore Services, LLC.
So What does Banyan Hill Publishing Offer?
According to the informational video, Banyan Hill Publishing is offering to show new investors 568 companies that are hot investments right now. These companies provide dividends that allow an investor to earn a fraction of what they have invested. Each of these companies Banyan Hill Publishing is promoting are no more than $10 per share. The $10 per share is what gets people curious about wanting to know more. After all, who doesn’t want to make tons of money with only having to invest $10?
Here’s the thing though, to know what businesses are doling out dividends you have to get the newsletter. The informational video doesn’t spill the beans and tell you any names. And why would they? If they told you the names of the corporations right away, you could open an account with a broker like TD Ameritrade and start buying stocks and sit back and wait for the corporation to hand out their quarterly dividends.
How Freedom Checks 1 Minute Windfalls By Matt Badiali Works
To get the names of the companies that will allow you to invest your money in and start earning huge profitable gains from selling, you have to buy the newsletter. The subscription to the newsletter comes in three forms.
The first is the “Standard” subscription. The cost for the most basic subscription to “Real Wealth Strategist” in digital form is $47 a year. Roughly that is $3.92 a month paid in a single lump sum. The second is the “Deluxe” which will run $129 a year and includes the digital format for “Real Wealth Strategist” along with a print version. When broken down, the digital and print form of the newsletter will run you about $10.75 a month. Finally, you have the “Premium” subscription that cost $79 annually and comes with all the bonuses.
If you go with the “Premium” package, you will get reports and other financial advice. What is interesting though is the price for these three packages. You would think that the premium would cost the most seeing as how they are giving so much away. But that is how they get people to pick that package. While you subscribe looking for the list of the 568 companies that you can earn from, you are thrown for a loop with information overload.
Freedom Checks Red Flags
Banyan Hill Publishing does an excellent job of luring consumers to their site with hopes of finding the next big cash cow. Unfortunately, there are far too many red flags that come in when viewing the video.
The first major red flag is the language used during the informational video. The speaker does an excellent job avoiding words like “shares” and “dividends.” It is clear that he doesn’t want you to understand that what you are getting into is basic stock market stuff.
And while the speaker uses terminology like “staking a claim,” it is evident that stocks are what you are getting yourself into. What stocks Banyan Hill Publishing and Freedom Checks are promoting though aren’t listed. Of course, why would they since the video is pushing you to subscribe to their newsletter to obtain the names of the companies.
Another major red flag that comes up is all the complaints on the BBB website. Many of the customers that have signed up for one service have been shuffled into another without their knowledge. Only when their credit card bill comes in the mail, do they see a new charge that they didn’t authorize.
Freedom Checks Conclusion
Because Freedom Checks are masked behind a newsletter, it is difficult to say whether or not the advice given in that newsletter is right or wrong. All anyone can tell is that investing is a risk no matter how you play the game. Never go in thinking you are going to score something big. Many of the other sites that have played this kind of game have been “pump and dump” schemes. Not saying Banyan Hill Publishing or Freedom Checks is in that arena, just that you should be wary of a company that is not 100% open with what they are sharing with you.
