The Retired Millionaire?-don't bother.

by smedsribaka 32 replies
A somewhat trusted source sent me a link to this program www theretiredmillionaire dot com.

That trust has dropped a notch.

The ad copy claims that he's going to reveal the secret of how he became a millionaire in Internet marketing and because he is now retired, he's willing to sell you his secrets for a mere $47.

If you close the window it drops to $27. If you close that window it drops to $17. If you close it again it drops to $7. So I figured I would try it at that cost.

It's not even worth $7.

All it does is send you to the main website where it has you read two very beginning guides to Internet marketing. It has a list of about 30 additional e-books that you could then read. In step three is a bunch of products you can supposedly resell but have really just been "bonus offered" out into oblivion for the past couple of years.

And here's the real kicker-they send you to a website called www myproductcenter dot com where you are supposed to be able to get a free website to market all this stuff. This is not true. This website has its own set of products that you can market and only a few of them are available to market for free. But then they make you buy a $67 "submit to 250+ search engines" program to get the traffic you need.

So I'm supposed to believe that this guy is a retired millionaire by following this system?

I'm not even going to bother to ask for a refund because I'm not going to waste any more time on it. I've spent more time writing this review than I'm willing to spend any more on this product.

    I had someone send me an email about "The Retired Millionaire" from what you are saying the millionaire part of the title should be chopped and changed!

      The Exact thing happened to me. I got an e-mail from a Guru who I thought very highly of until this e-mail and in the e-mail it said that he just got off the phone with the retired millionaire and he really recommended this program.

      What a Waste of time. The good news is I only paid $7.00 for it.

      I e-mailed this Guru back and really told him that he just lost all credibility with me. Right after that I unsubscribed to his opt-in list. I wont be buying anymore of his stuff even though I really liked the product he just recently came out with.

      If every time a guru sent an e-mail blast out and half his list unsubscribed, I bet they wouldnt send out Crap anymore.

        Funny that, I got the same email BUT
        I clicked through read what it was
        then deleted it. Got another one recently
        actually.

        The best way to deal with crap is opt-out
        I've unsubscribed from a few lately.

          Just clicked to check. Got this email from what I thought was a trusted source who just got off the phone with. But look a little closer at this package and click on the affiliate link.

          Provides a "newbie" some excellent information on how to market this product. Plus the promise of over $300+ for commission (?) and then it states something about $200 per customer rebilling, etc.

          There is money being made on this product but unfortunately it is not the person who buys the product who is making the money, It is the sellers, the folks with those Big Subscriber lists are killing with this, that is why so many of us are getting this email,
          Is the retired millionaire, Frank Kern, Ewen Chia? who cares... Don't hate the players, hate the game.

    A lot of gurus will tell you that they never promote products that they don't thoroughly inspect first. Obviously that is NOT the case in all situations.

    I came here today to see if there were any opinions about this product. A friend of mine asked me to find out what I could.

    I thank you for this post, and I'll send it to my friend.

    My searches on Google turned up the same info, except for the sites where they were also selling it.

    I thought maybe it was good for a beginner, abd you "seasoned" guys might not think much of it, but you've explained your opinions well

    Thanks

    We all get caught from time to time so don't all beat yourselves up at once. I looked at this ages ago but my girlfriend and I had made a pact "No more buying" so that probably saved me.
    I too agree that the so called gurus do not go through everything. I have had a few lately where the link doesn't even work. If they had of been through it themselves they would have quickly found that out. I agree - unsubscribe from any that do this.

  • It´s an old product. I bought it for a couple of years ago, when I started out. Nothing special there at all. And as it´s stated by another person here already; you´ll soon recieve a telephone call from someone who wants to upsell you to a coaching class ;-)

      I had the telephone call as well and after talking for about 5 minutes he then asked me how much money I could invest in his program.
      I though to myself (here we go time to sling a bit of B...S...) so I told him I did not have much money what could he do for me as I was keen to learn IM but he said because I did not have much money to spend he could not help me.

      I would say stay away

    He's probably making a killing from this $7.00 product! $7.00 is a drop in the bucket to most people and they think just what you said.

    Like many of you, I got this for $7.00. What a bunch of garbage! I too was sold on the idea by another "Guru" that I thought I respected. Am reconsidering.

    Even though it was $7, I'm still going for the refund, just on principle. Don't want these guys and those who referred me to make a penny on this trash.

    I guess you truly do get what you pay for!

      I did get my $7 back (whoopie!!) but have sent 2 requests for a refund for the $30 bonus, with no reply. Hmmm.

      I had to laugh when they actually called me today for their "personal coaching service". I told the rep how bad The Retired Millionaire" really is, so I don't think they will be calling again.

      If this guy is really a "retired" millionaire, then why is he still working? Probably spends most of his days processing refunds.....

        So far, I have sent him 4 requests for a refund on the $29.99 "bonus" upsell. Seemed like a no-brainer with a 30-day MB guarantee. Called their phone # 4 times, voicemail is full and unable to take messages.

        What a great way to make a living! Perhaps this is their formula for financial success: Sell people complete GARBAGE ("the retired millionaire"), offer them a 30-day MB guarantee on an upsell that doesn't go thru Clickbank, so customers have to file a dispute thru PayPal, which will take at least 3 weeks, then hope that your customers aren't willing to jump through all these hoops to get their money back.

        Why do we let these con-men get away with this? This product has been around for more than 2 years! Here are some older reviews: warriorforum.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=207197


        All they have to do is wait a few months for the bad publicity to fade, then launch the same old crap again. What have they got to lose?

        Does anyone know of a "Real" review site that isn't written by affiliates supposedly giving us their "objective" reviews, followed by a self-serving affiliate link?

      Think about this for one second. Do you really think that someone will reveal everything including his secrets to build his wealth for $7? If you make hundreds of thousands online, will you give away your secrets for $7? Probably not... Just my 2 cents.

        I have found my IM journey is getting better, liveable and more fun once I stop buying any IM products that gives discount on the exit button. Just a simple decision making solution. and it feels good.

    I read some time ago (maybe on this forum ... not sure) that the Retired Millionaire was actually two young guys using that persona as a marketing gimmick.

    Unfortunately, I found that out long after I bought the product at much more than $7.00. Quite a waste, although there was some bonus PLR that might be useful some day.

    A guru recently sent me this pitch and I emailed him with my concerns. Never heard back.

    It's sad to find out you've made a mistake trusting some marketers. My list of trusted marketers is dwindling.

    Hi guys,

    Retired Millionaire, found at easyretiredmillionaire.com (which I would assume is the same as) theretiredmillionaire.com.

    I originally bought this months ago, and I found out that this product is just a bunch of PLR, and nothing else. So I decided to refund on this product. After that, they have kept on calling me (You put your phone # in), with an offer to upsell. So overall, with there upsell attempts, and the product, I would say not to purchase it.

    No offense to the product owner.

    Caleb

      They've called me 3 times and each time they want information about my finances, credit history, debt and god knows what all, just so they can "pre-qualify" me for their Success Stories program to the tune of 10k! I have a REALLY bad taste in my mouth from this Easy Retired Millionaire crap.

    I'm not sure if this thread is still going, but it is now 1/05/11 and the retired millionaire is still selling this crapola! He's still retiring...even though the sales page says he is only selling 50 of these, the source said only 8 are remaining, and the sales page then says only 4 remaining.

    I look at these things to see if I can learn anything from the sales pages. I have never expected anyone to tell me how to become a millionaire, or even how to earn money overnight.

    Some people will go for it though, this thread was started 12/04/09, and is offer is still going on today, 01/05/11.

    Now that's how you earn (fleece...perhaps) money - if you can live with yourself knowing you be in the hot seat for eternity.

    Buyer beware.

    I have from time to time received emails promoting this - often the same wording regardless of who sends it. Now I know we all receive swipe emails but when it claims that they have just got off the phone from someone etc., and it is so clear that is not the case it makes me wonder how some of these marketers keep people on their list.

    Crapola again - there are so many of these still circulating - but someone must be buying or they'd have died a death!
    Thank Heavens for this Forum eh?!!!
    John

    PS: The only difference seems to be that this offer was set at $37 and didn't drop when I clicked out - in one!!!!!!!

    You guys keep buying dreams huh?

    You folks know 80-90% of products are old ideas, just rehashed stuff adapted to different platforms/different methods - but the basics are the same.

    I mean... Anyone could use one of Allen's old threads and adapt it to Facebook or Twitter and make a WSO right now for 7$ a pop.

    You know better then this folks... You're damn Warriors or what?

    What I have learned is that there are two cornerstones to success one of them is hard work and the other is enthusiasm which is doing what you love and are passionate about.

    All this internet marketing products that tells you they have found the secret to success without the hard work part is simply full of crap. Even if it just $7.

    That $7 or the money that you spent in crappy internet marketing products could feed a hungry person or save a village already.
