There is something for everyone. How to get rich quick scalping Forex, how to get even richer buying and selling stock options, hot to become fabulously wealthy using a super-secret trading indicator to trade Exchange Traded Funds.
A true carnival barker with over 17 years of experience hustling the naive and the desperate. The young, the elderly, and everyone in-between. Equipped with a boiler room and hyper-aggressive salesman that recommend that purchasers take out 2nd mortgages and borrow against credit cards.
Pure nonsense from a pathetic liar. No track record of ever trading successfully. A charlatan, a con-man, a carnival barker lacking even the most minimal amount of decency and integrity. What is Profits Run? The company is a trading educational business owned by Bill Poulos, operating in Wixom, Michigan. Org, Profits Run appeared on the trading educational scene in Profits Run is offering a virtual smorgasbord of different trading products and services.
Currently, the company is selling the following:. Currently, the company is selling the following products and services:. Profits Run is a massive sales franchise. Profits Run is first and foremost an internet marketing company. How many different products and services? Org, the company first appeared on the trading educational scene back in Org spent several days attempting to curate a complete list of trading products, the truth is that so many products have existed and then disappeared, that we could not fully account.
However, we were able to build a database of websites and web addresses that have been used over the past 17 years of operation. The following is not a complete list, but our best effort:.
Profits Run also operates a boiler room. During , as well , TradingSchools. Org used various alias personalities with varying email addresses and geographically independent phone numbers in an attempt flush out the size and the scope of the sales operation.
In one conversation, we depicted ourselves as an elderly person on a very limited income. We explained that our income was limited to a modest social security check, the salesman suggested that we take out a 2nd mortgage, borrow against our credit cards, or take a loan from a friend.
That most people pay off their educational costs quickly with trading profits. That money worries would soon be a thing of the past.
In yet another conversation, we depicted ourselves as a young person looking to earn money as fast as possible. We mentioned that our only resource was our college investment fund. The salesman implied that the trading courses would far outweigh the benefits of obtaining a college education. Essentially, the Profits Run buffet of products has been created so that the salesman can quickly and easily match a product with the demographic of the person on the telephone. The sales technique is similar to sales operation of Vantage Point trading software , or Market Traders Institute.
Profits Run is making some very bold promises and assumptions that traders will earn massive profits from the use of their investment products. And countless others earn thousands of extra dollars each month, by simply copying and pasting the trading signals from the software. But does Bill Poulos have a verifiable track record of ever trading successfully?
In our multiple requests to the company, we attempted to verify his many claims of amazing trading profits. We asked the various salespersons on the telephone if they were using the trading products that they were aggressively selling?
In the past two years, TradingSchools. Org has received and reviewed dozens of complaints regarding Profits Run. The most common complaint is that the trading software was useless, and nothing more than off-the-shelf trading indicators displayed on market data. The second most common complaint is that the company does not honor their promise of a money back guarantee.
The following are a few excerpts of complaints that we have received and reviewed: I quickly realized that Bill Poulos knew less about trading than myself. I purchased Wealth Income Generator hoping it would change my life. And they refused a full refund. Avoid this con man. Every month, a new twist on an old product. The Taco Bell of trading educators. There is absolutely nothing wrong with purchasing a trading product. But you need to make sure that the trading vendor or trading educator has a verifiable track record of prior success.
Hoping to sweet talk your credit card out of your pocket. However I am apprehensive about your honest opinion as beside the bad testimonials. There is no evidence that you have gone through their course? People like this are just scam artists and make all their income from deceiving others into believing their methods make money even though the truth is their methods lose more money than they make! The tradingschools google ad-aware auto ads advertises for Greg Poulos and shows his mug in the top right occasionally.
Glad to see this review climbing up on google search. Stay away from this scumbag. There is nothing new under the sun. People are still exactly the same as when you were swindling them. Not being snarky with you as you already came clean about your past. I am just stating it as a cold, unjudging, fact.
Tradingschools is like a hazard warning sign no one bothered to put around falling rocks and slippery slopes. Since the first Wall Street movie to The Wolf of Wall Street, there are young aspiring traders looking to get in the business in some way and with the rise of social media these hucksters gain a spot in their minds.
Not to mention the many unsatisfied 9 t0 5 employees looking for a career change, they too become daily income to these fraudulent sites. Unfortunately, there will be enough bait each month to chose from among the online trading grifters. Yes I have become a softy. Speaking of that What the Hell happened to the Stray Dog. Hopefully he is OK. More power to you. Keep on exposing this scammers. The CFTC gets their funding from the taxpayers not from brokerage commissions.

November 13, 5: I want to be genuine and true and fair to any students who sign up with me. I would like to know which mentors or courses you highly recommend? October 6, 4: I have joined the Instant Option Income program and it costs me 2k and I lost another 2k from using it then I could not be bothered to check back anymore.
Also joined at the same time the Option Income Engine. This one works better but in the long run still give poor results.
I trade better on options with my gut easily beating the two systems. Could not blame others, I will have to admit greed and laziness got me almost losing my shirt. August 26, 5: August 21, 7: July 27, 2: I really enjoy the comprehensive reviews here and I use this site weekly to reference against when I get advertising inquiries from education providers. I rejected two inquiries recently because the reviews posted here about those companies were basically terrible.
It saves me a lot of hassle because prior to tradingschools. July 10, 9: Its tough running a site like Elite Trader which I admire. You always have to straddle the need for advertising revenue vs keeping things clean.
I pretty much killed that sort of relationship with the brokers and software vendors, none of them will touch me. I agree about the conflict of interest regarding the Google ads. The revenue model for TradingSchools.
