Kevin Trudeau Tries to Fool People into Thinking They Are Watching ‘The View’

In his latest infomercial, Kevin Trudeau tries to sell his book Debt Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About by fooling people into thinking they are watching The View—or at least some cheap knock-off of The View.

I’m not sure why this would make any human being more likely to watch Kevin Trudeau’s infomercial. If you haven’t seen The View, it is a daytime TV talk show that features Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, and a bunch of other ladies with no talent mooing and cackling about nonsense. My reaction upon seeing The View on my TV screen is to reach for the remote control as soon as possible and change the channel to The Price is Right.

Kevin Trudeau must believe, however, that this program is so popular that viewers will eagerly watch his infomercial if it is disguised as some knock-off version of The View called “The Hot Seat.”

The Hot Seat infomercial, like The View, features a panel of ladies interviewing a guest. The women featured here are Terri Oullette (veteran hostess of such infomercials as the Oreck Air Purifier), Nancy Valen (former Baywatch babe), Sara Underwood (2007 Playboy Playmate of the Year) and someone named Michelle Huber. I don’t know who Michelle Huber is but if she is the same Michelle Huber listed in the Internet Movie Database her claim to fame consists of playing “Attractive Woman” on a single episode of The Sopranos.

The program opens with host Terri Ouellette really trying to fool people into thinking this is a legitimate talk show: “Hi, welcome to The Hot Seat. I’m Terri Ouellette, and as usual we have our regulars on the show today…” Excuse me? “As usual?” “Regulars?” This is a damn infomercial! Maybe there was some other infomercial that I missed that also tried to disguise itself as “The Hot Seat,” but unless I’m mistaken The Hot Seat has never aired before this advertisement designed to sell Kevin Trudeau’s Debt Cure book!

  • It doesn’t take a detective to know that Trudeau dude is a scam artist of the first order. I have seen him scamming people and ripping off other’s ideas for years and taking then as his own. I have read some other blogs in which people said the man is insane. Well, an insane man laughing all the way to the bank.

  • trudeau is a complete butt head. maybe he’s made millions by scamming people…but i believe in what goes around, comes around.

  • Check you can buy Trudeau’s books from anywhere from $1.47 to $4.05 (plus postage of course, so add about 3 more dollars). That’s probably still more than what they are worth. Whenever I’m going to get a book of DVD, I check Amazon, and many times I can get them for basement-low prices. Always check Amazon before bidding on anything on E-Bay, or ordering any books off the TV.

  • When I first saw this infomercial I thought the whole set with him and the women looked like a weird version of the Last Supper painting, with Kevin Trudeau as… Jesus (as he probably refers to himself daily). Then I realized that, aside from the knock-off View format, he is mainly trying to tap into the female demographic that follows Suze Orman’s financial advice on getting rid of debt. He’s trying to capitalize on women’s desire to get smart about money; only he’s a total idiot!! And I can’t stand how they insult everyone’s intelligence with the “as usual” and “regular” hosts, as if this show exists in some parallel bizarro universe.

    Comment by FunDaddy on April 10, 2008 at 6:50 pm

  • I watched the infomercial mainly because I was intrigued by Sarah Underwood’s legs. I finally determined that she’s hot.

    Comment by KDiddy on June 5, 2008 at 9:47 am

  • Kevin Trudeau is far from a scam artist. He simply provides you with information that you may or may not know about. It’s up to you to decide whether or not you want to make the purchase. alot of his information is repeated from other sources and NO he does not take credit for those ideas. He clearly states that he is relaying ideas to the public that inspired him by previous mentors and authors. If you want to say negative remarks about Kevin Trudeau because of the way that he set up his panel to do a commercial, or because Suzzie Orman is not the only person that wants to help women to get smart about money; those are ridiculous reasons to discredit anyone who had made a million dollars. If any of you who have made negative comments about his methods,credibility,or a scam artist.Especially Lucy (comment # 1) You all obviously have’nt taken the time to explore the products or services that he has offered. If you read blogs all day then you only get opinions. Lucy states that he takes other ideas and portrays them as his own. That is completely FALSE. Someone will read your comment and form an opinion based off of a lie that YOU have told.
    His info is very usefull and his methods of weight lost, natural remedies, and becomming debt free are helping thousands of people every day. Any one who has a comment please refferr me to the book that YOU have published or the Commercial that YOU have done in efforts to help society in these areas and I will go to Amazon and purchase your material today for “basement- low prices.”

  • Thanks for clearing things up, Kevin (oops, I meant James Edgar). Now I know it’s a good book.

    Comment by Josie on June 5, 2008 at 12:50 pm

  • Kevin Trudeau may be every bit the crook that everyone says he is. But wait one minute. You don’t think everything he says about the pharmaceutical industry is right on. Name one disease that western medicine has cured. I can tell you the answer. None. That cure you’re desperately seeking is right around the corner. That’s the longest corner I have ever witnessed. From Diabetes to Cancer, heart disease, and the many other diseases; the only thing the medical community talks about is treatment. Treatment is the code word for cha ching if you know what I mean. When the medical community mentions the word “cure” they are deceiving you. In the case of cancer a “cure” is a five year period. You have to be kidding me. So say what you will about Kevin Trudeau,he is not the only one being dishonest.

  • Now watching this show June 8 08 Cable channel CN8. We know the poor and minorities pay more for credit. Duh, But hot ladies in nice low cut dresses give it credance, Especially PlayMate of the Year, Im sold. Is this guy like Lesko whose book I got had info on assistance grant programs. If there were any that I was qualified for never found them. Im interested in getting the book. If for no other reason than to find new way to avoid getting “screwed.” What, dont apply 4 credit cards? Im a cash only person, never had 1.

  • Anyone that does not think Trudeau is a scammer (looking at you James,) go and find his Nightline interview. If you still cannot see that he’s a pathological weasel, then by all means, send him your money.

    Comment by BobHope2112 on June 17, 2008 at 11:45 pm

  • Whoever wrote this, is a very unwise! Theres nothing better than knowing who the government really is! So whoever wrotethisis probably either working for the government or is just jelous!!!

    Comment by Marina on June 22, 2008 at 9:32 pm

  • We are destroyed for a lack of knowledge…….. I just want to personally thank Kevin Trudeau for opening my understanding and providing me with life saving information. I believe that Kevin has spent years of research and money to protect us from our adversary.

    You can not make a believer out of everyone though!

  • This man has been in prison for fraud. He is a lying, thieving weasel. If you by anything from his phone lines you will keep paying forever.

    Comment by Harry O on June 26, 2008 at 10:24 am

  • This guy may be a scam artist but he is very sucessful in recent years.

    His debt cures book is a very good investment for anyone in serious debt. If you have fallen behind on any of your unsecured debt his words can help you out immensely.

    Banks are in major trouble right now and the laws are structured in the consumers favor. Take advantedge. People pay attorneys hundreds (upwards of $1000) to settle their debts or collections. You don’t need a freaking attorney you just need this book.

    As a mortgage professional I constantly get people who hired an attorney to fix their credit. You don’t need an attorney to lower the payoff on a collection or write the credit bureaus letters disputing all of your derogatory tradelines.

    You just have to know a few simple facts. You can learn them for free on the internet, you buy this book on Amazon for a few bucks, or you can pay an attorney $800 to fix it.

    I opted for buying the book. Know I am able to make $800 per person wanting to repair their credit. When the credit is fixed, I do their mortgage and make another few Thousand.

    Email me or visit my website if you want further information. It would be cheaper to just buy the fucking book but all of you stupid people believe everything you read on the internet. Just because this man did time over 15 years ago does not make his book about fucking the credit card companies any less factual.

    Get a fucking life and think for yourselves. Wikipedia is a great site but you all obviously cannot think for yourselves.

    Comment by Jeremy Woodson on June 28, 2008 at 9:49 am

  • Chuck Jaffee, a columnist at CBS Market Watch, reviewed the book and stated: “Truth be told, most of the information [in the book] is readily available in personal finance columns you can find online or in books that are readily available in your local library.” Jeremy Woodson above me is right. Kevin Trudeau is a scam artist when it comes to medical purposes and terminology. When it comes to financial information he knows exactly what he is talking about. If your in any financial trouble look for answers; free on the internet or buy his book on Amazon for a few bucks. Although Jeremy Woodson was right about what he said, he didn’t have to resort to such foul language. This book truly is helpful and I hope you read it if your in financial trouble.

    Comment by Samuel Jones on July 3, 2008 at 9:59 pm

  • “The Hot Seat” was just a gimmick, so we really shouldn’t be mad at that. I’m only upset because words like “as usual” and “regulars” were used. There are only two possibilities: 1. Kevin thinks his consumers are stupid; 2. He thought it was a clever idea and didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings.

    Comment by Samuel Jones on July 3, 2008 at 10:06 pm

  • I have to agree with KDiddy (#6) about watching the show just for the legs. ‘Cept I’d rather look at the legs of the lady who actually had pantyhose on

    Comment by Dave on July 13, 2008 at 10:42 am

  • Wow, watching an infomercial for Sara Underwood’s legs. That is lame. I was looking at her cleavage.

    Comment by Joe on July 16, 2008 at 7:16 am

  • After seeing Terri O on Kevin Trudeau’s show she no longer has credibility with me and I will not ever give her any notice. Her To Fix It company must be connected to this too. Stay away from To Fix It.

    Comment by Bob on July 21, 2008 at 9:28 pm

  • I want to know how to get a paying job posting positive things about Kevin on web sites that speak negatively about his products! It looks to be lucrative!

    Comment by tivika on July 24, 2008 at 7:11 pm

  • He’s slick but what a “winner” of a looser! He must be making hundreds of thousands of dollars. The irony of his infomercial is that he is actually worse than the financial systems that he claims are “screwing” the consumer. (Wow, I can get his book for ten dollars off if I buy it now.) This guy does the same “screwing” the only difference is he glams it up with a Playmate of the year, a touch of leg and cleavage and his own brand of slick “lubricant” so you don’t feel him putting the wood to you! Just like any other financial predator, you will not get a reach around when the love is over eiother…he will take your money and leave you wanting.

    I can read better materials for FREE at the Public Library and I can better financial advise for FREE thru local chambers of commerce, church organizations, banking instituitions, Government agencies (State & Fed), community working groups and the BBB.

    The truth is folks are in financial trouble do so out of either ignorance, stupidity or both. No bank forced anyone into debt. People entered into their poredicaments of their own free will and are responsible for their debts. No bank “screwed” anyone, they simply offered the vehicle. (we could have a sidebar on allowing folks with low FICOs and debt/income ratios that were out of whack from obtaining financing in the first place but that is another story).

    Bottom line…buy his book and go another $30.00 in debt! You reap what you sew. (Brad)

    Comment by Brad on July 26, 2008 at 6:06 am

  • Sara Underwood managed to cure her debt by posing nude in Playboy Magazine, later becoming Playmate of the Year. I would help cure as much of her debt as she would let me anytime.

    Comment by John Dough on July 27, 2008 at 3:11 am

  • Forget Kevin Trudeau! Quit looking for an easy fix to your serious financial problems. I’m not going to get into name calling, but if you’re really serious about getting some help with your credit problems, then you need to seek out help from the professionals at Consumer Credit Counseling Services.

    Comment by Bob Mullins on July 27, 2008 at 6:47 am

  • I like the older chick showing off her ta-ta’s. I can definitely learn more from her in one night than I could learn from Tricky Trudeau after a year sharing the same 6×9 cell.

    Comment by ed jones on July 29, 2008 at 8:31 pm

  • I have the absolute highest respect and admiration for Mr. K Trudeau, not sure if he is Canadian ( like his famous surname ) but I sure hope so, if he is reading this please get me a job Kevin with your fine organization !! i would truly LOVE and would sell me soul to be behind a studio cam focusing in on such lovelies as Miss Sara Underwood !!!

    I like his smooth talking abilities and solid self confidence too, he is smart and very effective and of course by now a multi-millionaire

  • So I come home for the summer and my dad is in all preaching mode about how the FDA and the government are hiding cures and all that shit about cancer and all those diseases that have no cure. What saddens me the most is that my dad believes this fucking dickwad word for word in his book “Natural Cures: how I make money off your gullible ass” or something along those lines. It makes me really sad that even my own dad has fallen victim to this scam, and singed up for that fucking website Trudeau has.

    I read some paragraphs about his claims for whatever the hell he’s yapping about, like that whole trampoline ordeal. Here’s an idea: how about you just work out? Lifting weights, cardio, shit…hip hop abs will do it. But a fucking trampoline? How random…and costly…

    And for all those people backing up Trudeau: you can drink my steamy yellow piss for all I care. For all I know, Trudeau has already pissed over your faces and you folks seem to lap it up like you’re all his bitches anyways.

    And also for that western medicine question:

  • Nancy Valen is “the older chick showing off her ta-ta’s”. Google her. Yeah, she’s HOT. But Terri Ouellette drives me nuts, too. I’m torn–and so confused….

    Comment by Gone on August 3, 2008 at 12:25 am

  • I have to agree with Joe (#21). I didn’t realize Sara Underwood’s legs were showing because of her cleavage! Now Trudeau’s book sounds like junk, but if it has pictures of her, I think I would read it.

    Comment by Joe is right on August 3, 2008 at 5:00 am

  • If this were the 1800’s Kevin would probably be selling snake oil. I watch this high quality show, I like Sara’s Dirty Pillows!

  • I was watching the TV early in the morning when I saw this infomercial. What caught my eye was the woman on the left side of the screen with the maroon top. If I’m correct her name is not Michelle Huber but Ann Marie Daily from Iselin,NJ. She’s my old girlfriend and we lived together for almost seven years. If there’s anyone out there that has more info that that’s really who it is please email me.

    Comment by Shari on August 30, 2008 at 12:42 pm

  • well…. why isnt anyone who has bought this debt cures book and says its bullshit, not posting the “magic words” and the “two websites” mentioned so we that are too cheap to buy it can see if it is a scam also? i also think kevin seems like the kind of guy that would give the reach around. he probably likes feeling throbbing haed penis in his hand! lol!

    Comment by b.t. mymeat on September 14, 2008 at 4:55 am

  • I was really just wondering how many of you that are knocking this guy (Kevin) have actually read his book? If you haven’t read his book how can you actually make a true informed opinion? I myself have not read the book yet, but since I have heard so much animosity among bloggers I feel very inclinded to purchase the book just to find out the truth for myself. I am sure that many of you, if you think about it would rather people come to you directly to find out information about you instead of just taking the word of others whom don’t really know you, that only know of you. I am sure you will all have many things to say about me that will probably be untrue simply because of the stance I have chosen to take on this matter. I am not into the whole low-hitting game, so if you chose to take punches feel free, I need not to defend myself as it will be seen in this blog that I do not desire to have a word on word fight with any of you, frankly I do not have time for such childish games.

    Comment by Rachael on September 19, 2008 at 5:35 am

  • I think Polio was the last cure invented, about 60 or 70 years ago. Diabetes and Cancer has been around for Centuries. I think Kevin is selling useful reseach information.

    Comment by Jay on September 19, 2008 at 8:51 am

  • All of these books are available at the library… Don’t waste your money… Of course, from some of the posting above maybe clarification is necessary. A library is building that has a lot of literary (oops, big word) works (books). It is already paid for by your property taxes (that means it is free to use). His book is there along with lots of others…


    Comment by Go to the library on September 20, 2008 at 8:00 am

  • Ya whatever, I want to know if any of you have personally met somebody thats been truly changed by Mr trudeau’s books. I have not and have read them all but the last one debt cures. Good thing how ever you can get them all in e-books for free if you know what your doing.

    Comment by Matt on September 22, 2008 at 11:50 pm

  • Can’t tell whether to read the book or not. So much mud slinging, and the person above me asked, “has any one been affected by his book in a positive way”. I ask has anyone be ripped off by his book. I feel the only way to find out if this book is the real deal is to read it yourself. Rent it buy it for super cheap whatever you do just thinks for yourself and see. but 99% of the time if people say its a scam its a scam. Oh well if the books suck its winter atleast its burnable…….

    Comment by Jon on September 25, 2008 at 5:39 am

  • I’m surprised no one has mentioned his criminal record and timeS in prison, sent there because he was ripping off people, lying to them, and then committing credit card fraud once he got hold of their credit card numbers. He’s been prosecuted more than once, spent time in PRISON & from what I understand, he’s been banned from selling actual products on infomercials. But, he’s so dedicated to ripping people off that he found a loophole in that even…. His right to free speech will allow him to sell his book….
    what a douchebag.

    Comment by Lynda on September 30, 2008 at 1:30 am

  • I thought this guy was a scam artist too. He’s not. I bought both of his natural cures books and everything he writes is really just common sense. People can say he is a crack or a fraud but the truth is that he is right. Think about it you dumb f%$ks. Kevin is a liar and fraud because he says only eat foods that are organic and not loaded with all kinds of preservatives, chemicals, and additives? Fine, please continue to eat your Yellow NO.6, MSG, and Aspartame. I dont have a problem with you getting cancer, but I dont want it. I read his natural cures book, followed most of what it said to do (still working on it) and I have gone down two waist sizes in four weeks and feel much better than before when I was running 10 miles per week and eating all that “fat free” and “zero-calorie” crap. He really is just repeating facts. Read the book and do a little research – the info is out there from multiple sources. Whatever – rest in piece you mindless zombies.

    Comment by M.Boston on October 1, 2008 at 2:46 pm

  • He goes into detail about his mistakes 20 years ago, as well as his willingness to take on the FDA and AMA resulting in having to make settlements in which he admits no wrongdoing. He treads dangerous ground because he exposes truths people don’t want to hear, such as how the legal system is manipulated by and exists for organized trade groups.

    Once you read some of his provocative stuff, like the stuff i got at the dollar rack at half price books, you become more open to some of his dietary recommendations. If he’s 80 percent right on his views of governmental structures and information control in society, and that 80 percent is insufficiently heard about outside of law schools, i’m gonna listen. Some may content themselves with ad hominem arguments about a guy’s past, but contempt prior to investigation is not the ticket. Kevin lets non-lawyers know, in Bismarck’s terms, how laws and sausages are made. It ain’t purdy.

    Comment by e on October 12, 2008 at 2:39 am

  • I would venture to guess that this is one of the websites created to spin shit around Mr. Trudeau to make him look bad. If you have a general clue about what goes in your body, you too will come to the conclusion that most food for the masses is simply loaded with toxins from poor soil, to pesticides, irradiation and chemicals galor. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the FDA, FTC, AMA, Big Pharma and Congress are in collusion to make you fatter, sicker and poorer. Yet you go on about this guy’s past, which at this point…is moot. WAKE UP and stop being stupid about what you eat. DEMAND better food and don’t be fooled by the slick and mighty.

    Comment by Meg on October 15, 2008 at 7:49 pm

  • Watched this commercial today (10/18/08) – obviously a rerun of the one shown above – even including the fawning caller from Chicago, Paul, supposedly a sophisticated, financially-savvy, very experienced mortgage specialist, who droned-on – almost orgasmic – about how much the book had informed him about credit card gouging, of which he purported to have been unaware.

    I called the number listed, got a “nasty nice” female CSR, who started to tell me of all I’d get free, and was all set to launch into the pitch, when I told her I’d think about it and hung-up. She indicated the book would cost $31 and change alone.

    This guy’s history includes selling useless, overpriced stuff, and effecting massive charges and recurrent credit card billings, almost impossible to stop once they’ve begun. What is even worse here, even for this smarmy, unctuous bastard, is that he’ll severely and negatively impact the buyer’s’ finances while purporting to solve their financial woes. The crook should be jailed again, even if only for taking “irony” beyond all reason.

  • Twice-convicted felon Kevin Trudeau was recently fined over 5 million dollars by the Federal Trade Commission for violating an 2004 injunction.

    Must be a conspiracy to suppress the various cures “they” don’t want you to know about.

  • For all of you who are so afraid of getting ripped off by this man, have you ever heard of a public library. Mine carries all of his books so I got to read them and make my own decissions without spending a dime.

    Comment by Lynn Kessler on October 20, 2008 at 4:40 pm

  • I got these books from my library. Fun stuff. I think he’s combining around 70% truth with 30% scam. It’s true that some things are common sense.

    Drink a lot of water, eat organic foods with no pesticides or pollutants. Excercise.

    However there are a lot of weird things. He claims to be 70 years old. I mean, theoretically you could say the government is trying to cover everything up, falsifying birth certificates, but come on…I have my limits on what I’m willing ot believe.

    I don’t trust the government or pharmacies, but I don’t trust this guy.

    There is one thing that is intriguing. I heard some reports that bee populations are diminishing. In his book, Trudeau doesn’t even mention this even though bee propolis, honey, and royal jelly are listed as having major health benefits and even “curing” some things. I guess it’s possible the government is exterminating them.

    Have fun with this. I’m watching as Trudeau leads us all into the 2012 apocalypse. Get saved in your various religions today!

    Comment by Harmonex on November 4, 2008 at 8:51 am

  • I have the book NATURAL CURES. It has some very good info. Thought I was pretty healthy; vitamins, minerals, eat raw food. Had an “event” with some small heart arteries. Used some info in Kevin’s book to find a Kinesiologist. The man is also an M.D. He got me off all the TERRIBLE STUFF the Doctors from the hospital had me on. All natural stuff. Like a highly refined soy bean product called Nattokinease that helps thin your blood. NO rash. NO brain fade. Found that my body does not breakdown Folic Acid. Have to take a pre-methylated version. Found out that my thyroid is a little undercharged. Added kelp to my diet. Went from 265 pounds to 200 in 10 months. Did NOT add any new exercise! Trudeau is right about “Big Pharm” and add the insurance companys. Make us sick, keep us sick, give all “health care” (who is paying for that???) BIG MONEY for THAT little circle!!! Get smart. Learn something new. You NEVER have to be hungry. You just cannot eat “Burger Doodles” all day, every day. YOU are in the trap. You will get sick. Those that want to learn will learn. The rest of you, good luck. The info is out there. About being “ripped off”; sometimes I think spending 8 or 9 dollars for a movie and another 7 or 8 for popcorn is a rip off. I only go to 3 or 4 movies a year now; not 1 a month. So, if I can get a book for $20, and have it for the rest of my life, and it has some useful info in it, I do NOT feel “ripped off” I’m glad someone tood the time to gather the info and assemble it for us! Thanks, Kevin Trudeau. Thanks very much. Best to all, even you narrow minded morons out there bad mouthing about things you evidently know NOTHING about! To Your Health! MM

  • I don’t believe Kevin Trudeau, I don’t trust Kevin Trudeau, I don’t buy anything from Kevin Trudeau, but I’ll be damned if I don’t sometimes get caught in his headlights and end up watching him for a few minutes. Kinda like eating Burger Doodles: Not good for you, but can’t resist.

  • Let me tell all of you about his guy he will rip you off and take your money like he has taken others and you can be fooled if you want to. Look him up on any court site in any city and you will see that he has made an appeareance on more than tv. He will keep taking money out of your account for newsletters that you didn’t order and everytime you cancel he will still continue to bill so before anyone does business w/him you had better do your own research first.

    Comment by Teresa Caldwell on November 13, 2008 at 8:53 am

  • It makes me so angry when someone calls him a scam artist. The fda puts shit on the market and then recalls it later after millions of dollars where made and people sickened. Remember when they used to say chocolate caused pimples?? I was sceptical of kevin at first too but i did my research. I talked to people from germany, england, korea and japan. *runescape the game has universal players* Korea and japan have delayed the hep shot to 2 years old that our babies here in america get after birth. SIDS has DISSAPEARED over there. DMSO and hydrogen dioxide cures herpies, oxygenated water cures all kinds of cancer *in england* and they have proven that the vaccinations we have here in the usa are pointless and deadly.
    I thought about it and it DOES make sense. WHY are young and old gettting the flu shot but there is no reports of decrease in death? Why do they tell pregnent women not to eat tuua because of the mercury levels yet they push them to get the flu vaccination when it is LOADED with mercury? korea, has extremly low amounts of people with autism because they do not give people the flu shot.

    WHEN you get sick, and you think it is the flu?
    it isnt, it is soething you ate, your body thinks is poison and does what it is supposed to do, throw it out, throw it up.
    the fevers? your body is working hard to stop diseases and sickness

    why would you take medicine and stop your body from doing this?? why suppress your symptoms of fevers and nausia when they create deeper more bothersome and deadly problems.

    god i can go on forever… floride in your toothpaste is RATPOISON.
    FLU vaccinations are POINTLESS. thers only 2% of the billions of people in the entire world that ever get the actual flu.

    ugh i f*cking hate the goverment. the congress. the fda, the ftc. UGHHHH I wish they would die.}

    kevin is an honest trustworthy man and I wish that there were more men like him in the world. cuz god we need it…

  • Sadly enough, this is a very angry man who,indeed, is spending a lot of time and money scamming people. I did read his book, natural cures “they” don’t want you to know about, and found the information absent. It’s up to us, the public, to be discriminating about the information we use to make our decisions regarding healthcare, finances or anything else anyone else might be trying to sell us info about. I wouldn’t rely on Kevin Trudeau, nor any other individual. We all need to be responsible for ourselves and our government. If you hate it, change it. And while you’re at it, be discriminating about what you read or believe. I reiterate, Kevin Trudeau is an angry man with an axe to grind, and he’s making money off of people who don’t care to take the time to do their own research.

  • one more thing who do he think he is trying to talk about indentured servants he said that on the so call hot seat better watch y our mouth cause i will tell you one thing black pepole let alone everyone is specail in their own way!

  • While it’s true most infomercial hosts are slimy weasels, I have to admit the majority of people writing comments against Kevin Trudeau have IQs slightly higher than (NOT “then”!) monosyllabic troglodytes. Have any of you ever found money and kept it without trying to find the rightful owner? Whether it’s on a grand scale or simply pocketing a found dollar, it all comes down to character and it’s still stealing. I have read “Debt Cures” and while it does contain some obvious common sense remedies, I did happen to find a few tidbits of useful information which saved me much more money than the actual cost of the book. To those of you who are condemning someone you believe is cheating people out of $19.95, my guess is you haven’t read the book. Granted, his infomercial was done in poor taste but look who he is addressing… low income and the sadly uninformed people up at 3:00 in the morning. He had to capture their attention without putting them to sleep. Unfortunately, many Americans are modern day indentured servants to the financial institutions. Try looking up “indentured” in the dictionary and you’ll understand what he was trying to say. I absolutely, without a doubt, believe 99% of infomercials are pure nonsense but, I can say I bought a FlowBee after watching an infomercial back in the late 80’s and the damn thing is still working perfectly after 20 years… Imagine that? In the end, you have to decide for yourself and not let other misinformed people influence your decisions. While they are right about most other infomercials, maybe they could be wrong about Kevin Trudeau’s book?

  • Well it true that the government is trying to many money by getting more people sick. It is really sad that many people are dead because if the FDA. I am glad that someone is putting a stop to this.

    Comment by Rocky on December 3, 2008 at 6:12 pm

  • Sure some of his infomercials are deceptive to get you to buy it, but a lot of his stuff is true, and our government and drug companies will go to any length to keep the wheels of the health industry turning. There are several cures for cancer that our government, drug companies and researchers keep to themselves, because you make more money treating symptoms than curing diseases. Most the cures are natural products/substances and since you can’t patent a natural substance you can’t corner the market on it. Yes, any one can research this info if they choose to. Your just pissed off because you didn’t think of it. Just go repackage it in a new way. If you want to get an idea of how bad it really is go attend medical ethics siminars at medical schools and take a few upper division biology, immunology, science ethics courses at your local university. It quite amazing the crap these companies and our government pulls just to make a buck, remember that by government standards that if only 40,000 or less people die from something it’s considered safe. If nothing else Kevin Trudeau should be a wake up call to America, to get people to pay more attention to the choices they make and to put pressure on the drug companies and government agencies to change. His new book Debt Cures what he says about our government and the rob you blind banking industry is true. I haven’t had a bank account since 1999. I thought I’ld give it a try again then ’cause the bank claimed to be different, it wasn’t. It had been ten years since I had an account then. Because of all the money they charge YOU so they can make more money from money that belongs to YOU. BANKS NEED US WE DON”T NEED THEM. Pay cash! If you can’t, then you don’t need it.

  • On Dec. 29, 2008 Mr. Trudeau won the 20th annual Slim Chance award for his quack diet promotions. The award is sponsored by the Healthy Weight Network and the National Council Against Health Fraud.

    From the press release:

    “MOST OUTRAGEOUS CLAIM: Kevin Trudeau infomercials. It’s rare that regulatory agencies look at books, given our free speech laws, but the infomercials for Kevin Trudeau’s weight loss book and his repeated violations were just too much for the Federal Trade Commission, and this past August he was fined over $5 million and banned from infomercials for three years. In “willful efforts” to deceive, Trudeau told listeners they could easily follow the diet protocol at home, even though his book calls for human growth hormone injections and colonics that must be done by a licensed practitioner. The tortured case began in 1998 when FTC charged Trudeau with false and misleading diet infomercials. In 2003 he was charged with false claims; in 2004 he was fined $2 million and banned from infomercials. Again in 2007 a contempt action said he misled thousands with false claims for his weight loss book “in flagrant violation” of court orders.”

  • Kevin Trudeau is right on !!!
    You people believe what you want to and keep right on taking prescriptions.All I can say for them is that at least they are now warning people of side effects,some have even caused deaths.I read his Natural Cures,got off prescriptions and feel like a new person! He is not a scam artist.Too compare his little group to those yacking ,get over-paid to gossip
    broads on THE View are a waste of time!Just what to they bring to their table? ZIP!!At least Kevin is bringing to his table info that people can use!If you don’t like him,turn the channel ,don’t buy his books. You can check his books out at the library for free.To each his own but I say “GO TRUDEAU!!!WOO-HOO FOR YOU! Hope you have more great books in 2009!!!

    Comment by Pod09 on December 31, 2008 at 12:17 pm

  • maybe kevin is all that you say but due to that conman giving out informative and true information i lost 67 pounds on the protocol system. i had never heard of it doctors could not help me…my diabetes is gone. so i say try his stuff before you call him a crook and then make a call.

    Comment by leslie lawrence on January 7, 2009 at 7:01 am

  • I found it extremely hilarious that someone said he is far from a scam artist when in fact he is a convicted scam artist!! It’s like saying Scott Peterson is far from a murderer. He has had continous legal problems for 18 years and it will only continue. There is a number of problems such as proof, for example you go to the book and he refers to his website which charges a fee, he is making plenty of money thru book sales he doesn’t need to charge a fee. I haven’t been to his website because I don’t trust him with my credit card considering what he has done with others in the past. As far as having little to no proof, false endorsements, as well as lies such as the UofC 25 year old study of diabetes cure he is a fraud and it boggles my mind knowing his history that he has shown no sign what so ever of redemption that they continue to trust him. I’m not a fan of the FDA by no means but when it comes to who do I trust more, the FDA over Trudeau any day of the week.

    Also how convient he has a conspiracy theory about the FTC that has repeatedly sued him for making false claims that he cannot reveal the Real cure because they censored it, but it hasn’t stopped him from making many outrageous claims.

    Comment by jon on January 10, 2009 at 11:11 am

  • My dad watched this infomercial one day and told me about the breasts on the women in the commercial. I told my dad they are just there to entice people to buy this product from a convicted con artists.

    Comment by Anthony on January 16, 2009 at 1:01 pm

  • I beleive that Kevin is a bold face liar regarding comments made from the bank presidents. I could not imagine any bank executive of any reputable institution giving him time on their calendar.

    Be careful, it is just to create an emotional reaction to buy a book that the same information can be found through some simple internet reads. Remember that a fool and his money are soon parted.

    Comment by Mike on January 17, 2009 at 1:47 pm

  • Have you noticed it’s always “they.” Who the hell is this universal “they?” that is always in some conspiracy against “me?”

    Comment by Buddy on January 26, 2009 at 2:16 am

  • Please be discriminating in who you trust. If you find yourself having to resort to a conspiracy theory to defend the guy, chances are he’s not trustworthy. True, a conspiracy theory does not always immediately rule out a person’s trustworthiness. But are there any other reasons to trust the man? He is quick to point out that drug companies benefit from stifling cures and that we shouldn’t trust them. But what if we turn that same idea around on him? Is he benefiting financially from what he’s saying?
    Look, I currently work in a lab (I’m just a college student, the lab is a bio lab, not a medical one, specifically). Scientists don’t want to publish a bunch of crap that isn’t true just to get some money out of it. Five years, or less, down the road, their peers will call them out on it and their reputation will be ruined. There are loads of incentives out there for doctors and scientists (and drug companies) to actually find cures! (imagine that) This idea that they’ll pay to stifle the idea is ridiculous, when the rational thing to do is buy the patent and sell the product yourself! If you buy Trudeau’s logic, you’ll buy anything.

    Comment by mab21 on January 26, 2009 at 2:37 pm

  • Yes, I am one of the customer service reps you will get stuck with when you call to order Debt Cures. All of us know Kevin is a smarmy crook, and we hate having to read script after script trying to get you to add-on to your book order. But if we don’t read those upsells, we lose our jobs, and our kids go hungry. So please, remember…don’t take it out on the agents, we are just doing what is required of us to make a living!

    Comment by The order placing gal on January 27, 2009 at 9:11 pm

  • I have purchased and thoroughly read Trudeau’s weightloss cure and debt cure. Where as I was never “fat” I always had a concern with gaining weight as I got older as both my parents are obese. I excercised regularly and ate healthy, however there is a lot of information in the book that is supported in other books as well. Dr. Perricone and Dr. Weil for example, have both been talking about the effects of pesticides and processed foods on the body for YEARS! Not to mention that “medicine” as we’ve come to know it in the western culture only covers up symptoms and does not provide a cure. I wasn’t psyched about the colonics.. and they are certainly expensive, but the research behind them makes sense. I have done a colon cleanse at least once a year (its less expensive than the colonics) and its amazing what gets trapped in your body. I have suffered from Rhuematoid arthritis since I was 11 and after years of costly injections, hospitalizations, and medications to take every day I can say that since I started doing colon cleanses, switched to organic food, and take 9000 mgs of Omega 3’s a day- I have had NO symptoms. I even trained to run the Boston Marathon. The doctors told me I’d be lucky if I could still walk when I was 30- AND I RAN A MARATHON! As far as weightloss- like I said I was never fat- but i did lose about 10 pounds, felt amazing, and have not been sick (except during pregnancy (but that’s to be expected). Plus, I look about 10 years younger than 90% of the people I meet my age. Not a single fine line let alone a wrinkle. My health is the best investment I could make and if it cost me $20 for a life time than so be it. As far as the Debt Cures book- I already made my money back on that. I cut my “collections” by 70% and renegotiated my car loan. After a year I am almost completely debt free (including car loan and collections) and DID NOT need to hire a lawyer. I’ll admit the Debt Cures book is a little weak- he recommends borrowing money from family and friends “any way you can get it” and in this economy who has money to lend out? However, without doing that, and a little extra effort on my part, I was still able to accomplish my goal. He’s still a business man, and he’s going to do what he needs to to make his money, but his info is pretty useful to those who WANT to listen. I agree with some of the bloggers above- if you haven’t read the books for yourself then you can’t talk about them intelligently, and save your comments about legs and “ta tas” for websites designed for that matter. As far as the last cure modern medicine had- when you say it was 60 or 70 years ago.. that’s kind of the point. I have had friends who worked in the medical industry/pharmaceutical industry. They left because they thought they’d be saving lives and instead they wrecked emotional and financial havoc on people- sick but innocent people who just wanted to live and drained every penny from every account for it. The medical industry makes me sick.

  • you guys are really passionate. Kevin Trudeau has great hair; is a political prisoner; has done nothing wrong; is innocent; is brilliant; the Feds and court system just don’t like him. I would like to invite all those who BELIEVE in Kevin Trudeau to spend a week at my Ocean front property in Arizona.

    Comment by shank on February 9, 2009 at 1:14 pm

  • I bought and read the book. I soon as my polane landed I went back to the book and began putting into action all the things I had highlighted. There is one way to some all this up. I will give you all a secret piece of advice. The law states that if you do not pay a debt, the company you owe money to can report you to the big three credit bureaus. The law also states that you have EVERY right to dispute the report as being your responsability. Here in lies the loop hole. I love this one. If you dispute the report as being yours, the company that reported it MUST prove that it is in fact YOUR debt. The only way to do this is for that company to send the ORIGINAL signed contract ( IN INK )to the big tree bureaus. However, the law states that it is ILLEGAL for any company to share original documentation. Thers your loop hole. They can’t prove it, and are forced to remove it from your report. Sometimes this takes two or three letters threatening lawsuit, but it has worked for me every single time. My score went from 430 a year and a half ago to a mid score of 700 now. Not too bad. He can’t be all that bad.

    Comment by Bobby on February 11, 2009 at 9:04 pm

  • Did I see someone say you can find his books in the Library? I am interested in the Debt one. Since no one is saying if they bought the book or not I guess I will risk 30$ to find out.

    Oh and so I dont get money taken every month I use disposable credit card. I put just as much as I need to purchace the book. So if im out 30 bucks oh well. If I can get it in the Library even better

    Comment by Stayce on February 28, 2009 at 4:16 am

  • I was interested in this book and what was discussed on an Infomercial. There was a 1 800 number to purchase my copy and if I ordered it with in the next 10 minutes it would be cheaper form $29.99 to $19.99. so I called and was greeted by a very pleasant woman, as I was giving my details to my shock the final charge was $35.99 WOW, I asked why the charge and was told that the $3.99 Handling and $11.99 shipping. If this book is was design to help people save money and get out of debt then over charging and skimming. After some research and Internet time I was able to find the same book for $7.99 and $1.99 from I then sat down and read the book to find that it was filled with false claim and claim that can could even place a reader in jail if they would to follow some of the options. I now know how this guy was able to get out of debt and become a millionaire by conning us lemmings who are in financial trouble by taking money we cant afford to waste, on a book that could at best make our debts worse or even send us to jail.

    Comment by Jim Derdantz on March 4, 2009 at 5:45 pm

  • Kevin is factual about somethings, like he admits he went to jail, but he doesn’t fully state that it was for check & credit card fraud.
    He also is factual about visiting area 51 & seeing the aliens we have there, i know this to be true since that is where i met him, i am from the andromeda galaxy visiting the earth for 300years.

    How stupid does that sound, that is the basis of all kevin says

    Comment by al on March 7, 2009 at 1:44 pm

  • I still think its hilarious how people try to defend him when on “the show” he says his book is not out in stores yet people call in to tell him how buying that book fixed their lives??

    HAhahaha thats just classic.

    Or is it the “Secret Society” he raves about in his other book telling you not to listen to him even though they do nothing about the countless others who provide the same advice for free?

  • neither is correct but it both are getting more cleaver swaying people to one side or the other. comercial drugs may very well help somone at the cost of death or a new illness. the other may aid little help but make you belive it works. the mind is very powerful there is a man that can take entence cold through thought which would kill the normal person, people in tabet can tolerate the frezing tempatures. these hurbs are helpful for instance aspirin is made from willow tree it’s one of the only medicines that is just a synthisid herb. i would not risk my health for death exspeicaly now with all these new drugs causing death. even if you don’t die it is almost garentide you will have health problems.
    it’s on the label. you deside

    Comment by josh on May 9, 2009 at 3:18 pm

  • Kevin, I have a theory to what you said about the human brain and how frequency. If every thing is made up of the same matter then all it does is swing off each other. Kind of like a child on monkey bars. That’s why it can travel so far, and depending on how strong it is determines how far it will travel and what it will travel through. P.s. Some one let me listen to the 12 disk set Your wish is your command. And believe it or not I used to think that way and lost my train of thought, but thanks to the disks I feel I’m back on track again.

    Comment by Josh M on May 17, 2009 at 8:11 am

  • yeah, Your Wish is Your Command has been recycled for probably the last hundred years. There’s always someone passing it on and making lots of money. I just wish they were honest. The New World Order and Planet Nibiru bullshit Kevin spouts on his new radio show, much like Coast to Coast. Very compelling, but overloaded…

    Comment by Brent on May 25, 2009 at 3:26 pm

  • I don’t trust his health ideas. While I will agree that the FDA has made some not so wise choices, but the stuff he says “works” has there been any PROVEN and TRUSTWORTHY documentation and tests done to prove that this so call “cures” work? Plus like I said previous, how can you trust someone who was sent to prison for fraud. Would you trust a child molester to babysit your child? I know I wouldn’t regardless or how well treated they were.

    Comment by Anthony on June 30, 2009 at 11:12 am

  • I just want to say that, me, I don’t know much about the government or the law or all that, but I wouldn’t think it above them to like keeping us all sick and dependent on medicine and brainwashing us. And I don’t know what kind of man Kevin is, but I was always taught that people should always: BELIEVE NONE OF WHAT THEY HEAR AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT THEY SEE! so yall need to pick and choose what you believe and what you don’t and what just seems like common sense. I mean it doesnt take a genious to figure out that we need to eat vegies and fruits and drink plenty of water.and that Americans eat wayyy too much bad food. Personally, I’ve been taking way better care of myself since i read the book and I feel good doing it. Now the rest of the facts and stuff, i dont completely know about but it isnt keeping me from taking good care of myself . Plus, other books I’ve read by different authors state the same deal. Now just because he has his website and products doesn’t mean we have to order them. and if you’re like me and don’t trust ANYBODY, you would go to the store and buy the stuff yourself, or look it up on the internet, or find substitute ingredients or SUMTHING! Always research things first. I have been scammed so many times and had to learn the hard way. but now i can see a scam from a mile away. and i didnt go out and spend money on anything on a website. But really, don’t believe everything you hear.

    If you want to give your money to an ex-con, go for it, but don’t be uber surprised that other people think he’s a bag of hot air.

    Comment by Olivia on July 20, 2009 at 6:36 pm

  • By reading some of the post on this website it saddens me to see how lazy we have become. I was looking for information to support my skeptical opinion about Kevin and has books only to find a lot of people making comments that have no facts behind them. Has anyone else noticed that no real information is being shared with us about the information and strategies in Kevins book? has anyone tried to get the free money and couldnt? has anyone went on the websites he recommends and tried to apply for the money? – It’s funny that we read what others say and then just believe it!

    Thank god for leaders!- The followers have us outnumbered! Well, although I am not a follower of Kevin, I will wait to form my opinion based on the facts!

  • For those of you whom are telling people that they can find the same information that Kevin has shared in his book at the library or online, Have any of you tried this? – It would take days and weeks to compile all of the information because the government has made sure that it is skattered all about in various sources as to confuse and keep secret.. People like Kevin has compiled it and made it easier for us to find whether it works or not, who knows but stop putting false information out there!

  • Dear SpoileRotten,

    You are a blithering idiot. You made 5 rambling and longwinded comments chastising people here for not doing exhaustive research on Kevin Trudeau’s book, yet you didn’t bother to read THIS VERY PAGE to find out that this is a *humor* site about infomercials and that the infomercial discussed on this page is for Trudeau’s Debt Cures book, not his Free Money book.

    I find it appalling the tax money the government steals from me might end up going into the pockets of a worthless piece of human debris such as yourself. If you want money I have an alternative to asking Obama for a free welfare handout: Earn it!

    Comment by euGene on July 28, 2009 at 12:02 pm

  • I love how all of Kevin’s Scientologist shills come out of the woodwork when he gets attacked on here. If you think Kevin is smart, by all means, follow him. He could use some company in the slammer to avoid getting pounded every day by the other inmates.

    Comment by Jack Mihoff on August 17, 2009 at 2:28 am

  • I always knew their was better out there then just the typical hard work and play later when your 45 or 50, and that doesnt even last long! I’m 22 with a curious mind to succeed in my life, most wont stop to think for a minute to change there way of thinking higher. What im saying is to at least flip your way of hearing negative to hearing positive, from speaking negative to speaking positive. Have confidence in yourself every where you go as if its your comfort zone. Kevin Trudeau’s Book’s and CD’s are a wake up call and eye opener, me personaly love to feel ambitious and the strive to say “I can do better” Kevin Trudeau has made my life a whole lot clearer and simple to succeed.

  • All people writing about Kevin negatively and attacking him for doing a service for the country and the world should be ashamed of yourselves. I cured my fried from AIDS with Kevin’s advice. He is the most honorable man on TV or radio. Back off all of you who never tried his advice and want to attack him verbally. You cannot say such things if you have not tried it.

    Comment by Bijanh on February 2, 2010 at 2:10 pm

  • I am a sceptic… a HUGE sceptic. I went to a clinic, one of those that apply his weight loss cures. I passed out on the 4th day at my twins pre-school and had to stop, and yes… I believe it was correct in it’s logical theory about eating more whole foods, less carbs, more water… But the “wish is your command” “cures”, “debt”… all of those books? Tell me a few of those “secrets”, give us a few and let me decide. I think there needs to be a open forum where people share what they have read. Why not? I’d be happy to share everything about the diet. No one mentions that you are expected to inject yourself with HCG for 28 days, yes the hormone that women produce while pregnant. The diet works, I’ve seen it work for MANY people, but it just seemed odd to me… applying the sensable dietary changes, good. But the HCG injections? I’d like to know what some of the other “secrets” are. If he is SO great, and he is SO willing to share it… why is everything such a secret? I’m Lisa, ask mt the diet, I’ll tell you what it was… and it wasn’t created by him.

    Comment by Lisa on February 23, 2010 at 8:31 am

  • I have a plan that will have you losing weight. It’s called get off your ass, run a few miles a day and stop eating crap. There. You all owe me $39.95.

    And to the person who helped his “fried” from AIDS; how exactly did you do that? The entire world civilization is waiting with baited breathe to know how you cured AIDS, even if it was one person. Curing millions would make you one of the greatets people in the world. What was the treatment plan? We’re waiting. Or do we have to spend $39.95 for you to tell us this?

  • Several times I was about to buy a one of Kevin’s books by phone or online, but decided to wait. I have found some of his books at thrift stores, and yard sales, for dollar or two. They weren’t much to brag about, only common-sense information. There was never any real cure information that is not available anywhere online, nor help for anything really! After researching on line I’m certainly glad that I haven’t purchased any of his products by credit card! I would like to say I’m sorry for anyone that’s been hurt by him, and I hope you can recover what you’ve lost!

  • Kevin is a liar and thief, he robbed me $14.99 of my husband’s hard earned money. He was charging me for his newsletter that I was unaware of although I spoke to their Reps several times about my address change from me moving. I requested my $14.99 refunded but she told me it was not refundable, I then said I spoke to several reps that called at least six times telling them that I had moved and my address has changed. She then said, “WELL THOSE REPS WERE JUST CALLING YOU TO SELL YOU SOMETHING” Kevin actually charged $14.99 on my card card without my permission, I wasn’t even aware of this. He is a thief on TV, don’t let him fool you that he is trying to help consumers, be smart everyone, how many $14.99 he’s stealing from us?


    I hope this column helps someone.

  • I love hearing all the negative stuff about Kevin.

    But what exactly don’t you like…specifically…about his information? How are his books and information deceiving you?

    Is non-stick cookware and aspartame really good? Why do you think that? Is eating organic food, getting exercise and sun bad for you? What is the source of your information?

    How about getting enough sleep, keeping yourself cleaned out, taking whole food supplements, limiting or eliminating prescription and non-prescription drugs? How the FDA is really against you and wants to keep you on as many drugs as possible?

    Is this the truth or is Kevin lying to you to sell more books?

    Exactly how does he deceive you into thinking something, then you find out he’s wrong and you’ve been hood-winked?

    What??? He’s a convicted felon? Old news, cowboy. He’s said that many times on his radio show and in his books.

    What about his newest CD series, “Your Wish is Your Command”. What…exactly…don’t you agree about those CDs? That mentoring is bad? Be careful who you listen to? Taking control of your mind, thoughts, actions, and emotions? Fully understanding the Law of Attraction?

    What EXACTLY don’t you like about the CD series?

    I don’t want to hear how his reps. charged your credit card.

    I want to hear…exactly and specifically…want you don’t like about his information, why it’s wrong, what the truth is, and how you established this truth.

  • Keep in mind that Trudeau PAYS people to post positive reviews on blogs and sites like Amazon. He is clearly a con man posing as a ‘consumer advocate’ and some sort of ‘whistle blower.’Trudeau would go anywhere and commit any vile act for a buck! I love how he whines like a little girl that he is being ‘persecuted.’ I have read the book and it contains no useful information. Didn’t have to pay him for it either! By the way once you give Trudeau your credit card info expect to see unauthorized charges for months for things you never ordered in the first place. Steer clear of this sociopath!

  • The bottom line is this: If you have to LIE and fool people in order to sell your crap, you are a FRAUD. Thus guy prays on the gullible, sick, poor and under educated. What goes around comes around.

    Comment by Bob on June 13, 2010 at 6:48 am

  • I agree with Robert. The only real fools here are the ones who love to share their opinions about something they really don’t know anything about. There definitely isn’t a shortage of them either. This is what people refer to when they talk about cutting away the crap first.

    From what I have read, usually the ones bashing Kevin are also the ones who seem to probably embrace government lies with open arms. He may be a scammer, he may not be, but man you sure can’t come to a conclusion here.

    Comment by jaihawk on June 17, 2010 at 7:58 am

  • purchased this off ebay just to give it a listen. It’s clear he’s in a studio and his stories are made up. He’s just repackaging stuff from all the law of attraction books and adding his little bit of crap. he clearly didn’t do a good job of fact checking his made up stories and he claims to be a martial arts expert that has trained in a myriad of styles. he is so over the top. he is a con man but he is making money, so i wanted to hear what he said. if you want to waste 40 bucks then give it a listen to, if not, then you’re not missing anything.

  • This guy isn’t a scam! He’s for real. I’ve purchased both his books and dvds and ti works fine for me! if you guys believe he’s selling garbage, then that’s exactly what you’ll get, garbage! Why don’t you guys try it out first before you put out negative stuff!

    Comment by coolguy on August 31, 2010 at 1:59 pm

  • I implore you all to research this man thoroughly. At one time I believed every word he uttered. But wow…he claims to have seen an alien space craft, dead alien bodies…claims he has been a member of a secret society…all this he claims as fact. He freaks me out. Tammy Faye? The one that used donations to buy her dog’s house an A/C?? His new series is the creepiest of all. He wants us to pay to join the secret society he managed to escape from after blowing the whistle on them… Check out his Global Information Network…aka Suckers Are Us. He’s not gonna suck my blood…or credit card….next thing ya know he’ll be a new age televangelist or a faith healer or a psychic. Karma’s getting him right now as we speak.

  • Kevin Trudeau seems to be as brazen a snake oil salesman as can be. I mean, there are PAGES of complaints about Kevin Trudeau on

    What’s amazing to me, and may be a microcasm of the Kevin Trudeau phenomenon, is that 99% of the complaints are about being scammed in one way or another, but one of the more recent complaints is from someone who didn’t get their book order after 5 weeks. That is amazing on multiple levels…

  • Trudeau’s a marketing genius—making millions with a bunch of hot bimbos pushing useless books about money secrets, drugs or debt cures. He could sell ice to an Eskimo–the man’s brilliant at selling stuff. He should be in politics.

  • The secret is out, and I will tell you all how to make a million dollars.First off make an ad stating to be able to explain to anyone and everyone the secrets to getting rich, quickly and effortlessly. Without a grade 12 or college degree you too can be a millionaire. Simply send a S.A.S.E and 5 dollars processing fee to. Now to avoid claims of fraud, you are required to send each person that sends you the 5 dollars, the “SECRETS” you promised them. No problem,you send each interestd party a flyer stating the secrets.

    The secret is simple Place an ad

  • He’s a scammer. Some of his health stuff is good, but he still tries to scam people. Tons of people have complained that when they ordered something, that they didn’t get what they asked for or got charged more than the real price.

    Comment by cody on June 25, 2011 at 8:05 pm

  • Believe me when I tell you, Kevin is an absolute GENIUS. If you had a full recount of his activities over the last 20 years, you would see how crafty and cunning he is.

    Too bad he uses all of his brain power to mug, rob, and steal money from everyone in the world by any means necessary.

    Don’t you think he knows that a huge number of people fancy him a crook? He has a TV, and an internet connection, and ears.

    Okay, so the word gets out that the grant money claims he makes are bullshit. So what does he do? He takes the grant book, and gives it away FREE on some ridiculous infomercial. Why? Because he simply can’t avoid cashing in on the bad publicity. People see the infomercial, remember hearing it was bullshit, but then once they see that it is FREE (yeah, ok) they get it just to reaffirm their initial opinion.

    Of course, there is no such thing as FREE. He gives you the book, and then bombards you for the next 20 years with an army of telemarketers, account executives, direct mail, even selling his customer lists at a HUGE profit. He will squeeze every single penny out of every single warm body he comes across.

    Fellow Americans, we created this asshole, don’t you see? We are a country full of fat,lazy, shortcut seeking,video game playing,5-minute abs crunching people. If the world is an oyster, then we are the nuclear waste eating it away from the inside.

    Trudeau is a microcosm of our society. We put a higher value on meaningless material bullshit than we do on human life and our environment. He understands this and plays on it. Secrets, conspiracies,screw the government,free money,free heat,free food,free credit,cure debt,cure cancer, and other similar themes are all targeted towards our way of life. Deny it all you want, but if that weren’t true then he wouldn’t make billions doing it.

  • Once again, how’s anyone going to be “fooled” into thinking this is The View when it says it’s a show called “the hot seat”? If they don’t even pay attention to the title of the show they’re watching then that’s on them.

    Comment by Sam on December 29, 2011 at 9:12 pm

  • KT is an arrogant prick, but he simply shares the truth about many things. I implore you to listen to his shows and then come back to say he’s a liar.

    Again, I seriously think he is an arrogant prick…….claims enormous wealth, but still wants monetary support…..BUT…..the info he shares is 100% legit.

    Comment by Samuel Clemens on May 14, 2012 at 9:55 am

  • I do agree that Kevin can make you think and maybe even do some soul searching. The problem is being brain washed by an ex-con that is very good at convincing you to give him your money. If you have brain one just do the research and realize that he is not a god and he verrrry good at deceiving people out of their money. Bottom line, think for yourself. An opinion is an opinion, but when you become a true follower of Kevin Trudeau’s and every thing he says becomes your life than you lose your identity and have not become a loyal member of his “cult” society.
