Spoiler/Scam alert. It's in the name!

published

There is a reason they call the subscribers of this service "fools" or the "Strategy" the "foolish approach"

With the Stock Advisor, they say "Spend an equal amount of money on these stock pics, wait 10 years and the returns will be huge", so when you look at your portfolio that is wall to wall red, they can fall back on "yeah, you have to wait another 8 years".

I WISH I only lost my $200 on this. In the year I was with them, I invested 30K like a FOOL. I've watched my money dwindle away, reluctant to sell because... y'know you have to wait 10 years. I'm down to 14k now, straight down the drain.

You want some timeless advice? Do what everyone with a brain says, follow the market, pick some ETFs. Don't be a fool like me. Good luck

Surest way to lose money

published

This is the worst investment service I've ever bought. Underperforming the market by 30% since inception. Absolute con. last two years they've recommended 29 shares. 4 have done slightly better than the market. The rest look terrible with underperformances up to 80 and 90% down. They have no stop losses. They've missed the commodity boom. Long term it is even worse underperforming the market by 48% since inception.

Tells people for over a year how awful GME is as an investment to get the price to go down and then buys GME? What game are you playing Motley Fool?

Useless - tell you to invest in companies they have big stakes in

published

Purchased a $200 subscription to see their share picks. They talk repeatedly about their recommendations on things like Afterpay before it booked, great what other wins have you got on the board?

Lastly, even though it’s disclosed, they have a vested interest as the shares they tell you to buy, they have a stake in and obviously need some suckers to join their pain.

Dominos, Kogan, Brickworks, Soul Pattison. Same recommendations all the time.

The Motley Fool Extreme Opportunities send one year old "alerts" ! Worthless service and a SCAM

published

The Extreme Opportunities Not a good service from my experience. Very poor recommendations. No cooling off period. Waste of money. None of stocks they recommended made any profit. Their commentary is more marketing than learning about investing.

Hard Sell. No Value

A load of hard sell and upsell emails. Very little useful content.
Wish I had not wasted my money on a subscription that offers very little value in investment advice.
Don't waste your time or money here

Tidal wave of emails

published

I cannot endure the tidal wave of emails that just keep coming whether you are a subscriber or not. Many of them trying to get me to subscribe to a service that I already have. Their long winded stories usually go no where and I have had more success with a few tips from mates, than the dozen or so stocks that I bought on MF's recommendation. Even if the stock picks were good I would have trouble coping with the volume of email, although I managed to direct most of these to my spam folder now. Also difficult to unsubscribe once you are in. They like to keep taking your money!

Don't use them!

They refuse to respond to emails asking to cancel my subscription. And they refuse to answer phone calls as well. For your own financial safety, do not use their services.

Ash Dasked

The representative from your company (Lianne E.) has responded to several reviewers that the reviews on this site are biased but that the reviews on your own website reflect a less biased set. I am prepared to accept that however by your own admission the reviews on your own site come from either Google or Product Review. I am curious therefore that when I filter the reviews on your site to view only the Product Review sourced ones the positive ones seem to come across to your site but there seems to be some data problem that prevents the negative reviews coming across. Even more curiously the average review rating is 3.4 and yet there is not a single review below the rating of 4 on your site. Could you perhaps explain the mathematics involved here?

Why is that they are able to respond to questions newer than this one but this one continually gets ignored?
