I know it's tough to slog through a long thread like this, but there ARE some real gems tucked within. Some reports from real victims who are now completely broke, some great forensics uncovered by one of our best investigators, MGD, some clear shill posts trying desperately to turn things around. It's really worth the effort to go through it.

Finally got through the thread.

Thank you.

I was researching all kinds of mlm schemes from primerica and this one. Of course they create fluff sites to keep people from finding the truth. They do this with Youtube as well.

I remember years ago seeing Anthony infomercials and I always wondered. I am looking for a job so I checked out Anthony on google and thankfully I found this thread. I am in no way going to put myself in thousands of dollars in debt so this guy can buy more cars and boats to show off in his videos.

Again, thank you.

The best part of this thread were the shills, they hurt his reputation more than if Morrison and his ziplock crew(my term for scam groups and their shills) would just stay quiet because posting that a system works and everyone is lazy or not qualified to talk about his schemes because he hasn't convince you to charge thousands of dollars to give you a cookie cutter site that google and yahoo have pretty much black listed or just laugh at is sad.

I can't wait for Morrison to end up on American Greed. Love that show.

I Will sum it all up for you people:

An Excerpt from one of MrMorrisons Replies
"Money Maker: I appreciate your comments. Its very rare to find anyone that actually makes money, reading these posts. I do appreciate you taking the time to let people know you are making money with my system. I suppose that comment there makes this one by doctor four "It sounds like the only one making money off Hidden Millionaires is Anthony Morrison." untrue huh?"

how very quaint it is very rare to find anyone that actually makes money.especially when the worth of investing to such money making program is a steady decline of income.2nd he agrees to money makers critic but does not deny the fact that the cost is $4000 per seminar...to which mr morrison says that those who have not gone through one of our seminars cannot possibly know the cost of the visit.
now lets backtrack a bit mrmorrison is a well off man supposedly a millionare...now tell me...what would a VERY far well off guy be doing in a forum that is designed to report scams?truth is it isnt mrmorrisson this "mrmorrison's" job is to fight off all the negative critics towards such program.attacking critics is not a great way to despute your side of the story his tone is more of ok these guys dont know what their talking about sort of thing...he refutes all the critics statement as if they were false but fails to clarify that what he himself saying to be proven true...MY OPINION IS THIS MONEY MAKING BUSINESS IS A SCAM...think of a lottery, you have a better chance of being hit by lighting1 no 2 no 3 times in the same place than winning the lottery but no one is saying is a scam because its just out there its simple it promises nothing it guarantess nothing...this program works like a lottery but promises that you will make large profit by misleading its costumers into thinking that this is as simple as that...go to a seminar or few read a book study and apply...no no no business doesnt work that way at least not that easy "business" is an experience and it differs from each person one cant possibly write an instruction manual on business because business is a gamble but on top of it being a scam it makes the odds against you even more paramount.Thats like Phelps writing a book on how to be a gold medal champion and all of a sudden mysteriously thousands if not hundredths of thousandths can easily acquire a gold medal if not several more.This kind of scam preys on the desperate and inexperienced as well as confusing its audience with a confusing sales pitch with an even more confusing way of explaining it (without revealing its a scam).people like mr morrison in most cases associated with the scam itself is sent to the vast ocean f the web to find such critics and convince the people that it is not a scam and its just a backlash of the unlucky few.This is the type of program scam that puts the money into the writers.creators pocket in exchange for the hope and desperation of those unlucky few that happen to fall prey.No doubt this will affect the image or the real morrison and his family and will jeaopardize their believabilty in making such claims or guarantees later in the future...
-for every negative critic is a loosened rivet that will bring about the sinking of a ship

Nice find. From the case which part of it consisted of "shortcuts to internet millions"

"The court found that despite the marketers' easy-money claims for the systems, which cost $39.95 each, nearly all the consumers who bought them lost money. In addition, the defendants sold personal coaching services, which cost up to $14,995, to consumers who purchased any of the three systems."

Wow. Sounds just like your MO Anthony. I know you come here occasionally. Whadja think of dem apples? Maybe you'll get some food and lodging from the Feds.

Re: [Scam] Anthony Morrison/Hidden Millionaires Infomercial

Thank you all for your comments!!! You have saved me 49.99 and alot of time and heartache. I was going to be scraping up the 49.99 to try Anthony Morrisons program. I surely do not have 4k, nor would I have been able to get it. That was what I was hoping Anthony was going to help me make. I decided to google Anthony Morrison and I was drawn immediately to this site. Which I have spent two hours reading comment after comment. I can not thank you all enough!!!
If you happen to read this Anthony Morrison, I hope you will consider that when you advertise a money making program that you tell people interested up front exactly what you expect from them. Such as 4k, attending siminars, paying for any advertising or fees. Because then you will generate the people who can actually afford your program and dont mind spending thousands of dollars. Instead of people like me who are on food stamps have several children and who really need every dollar that they have. You only had my attention as long as you did because of your story about your parents. Did they have to shell out 49.99 first then attend a family meeting and give you 4k? Why are you telling your family story in a way that makes it seem that people who are in that situation can do the same as you. Did you shell out thousands of dollars to get started. I am a mother of seven children, in an abusive relationship that I need money to get out of. I dont have money to shell out. I need money to get out!!! Please think about what I have said and market to people who can afford to pay you for your knowledge. Not sending an email to me telling me that I can make money from home if I give you 49.99 dollars. I am able to put shoes on three of my sons with that amount of money. Which I would rather do than to be strung along to the next web page.

Good for you! Just remember, trying to appeal to AM's conscience is a waste of time -- he's only in it for the money (for him). He does not care one whit about people spending their last dime, only that they spend that dime on him.

Good luck to you!

I am not a student of Anthony Morrison. I make money taking surveys. I read all the negative comments about the companies. Well, I did'nt have to put forth $4000. I found the comments to be unfounded. I will in the future try in when I have enough money. I want to give it a honest effort. I believe you have to give an honest effort when someone offers you an opportunity. I am glad I looked into the comments, because now I know what all the hoopla is all about and what I would have spent $49 initially for. Thanks to the people who gave a try and made it and to the haters to.

Alright, I'll bite. How did you find the comments against AM to be unfounded, yet found his baseless claims to have merits? Doubly so that his own fine print basically exempts him being held to any quality assurance?

No you didn't or you would see the flaw everyone else does.
Put in all the effort you want. Everyone else who is/does the same as you, you can not get anywhere. THAT'S where the scam is. He can not put you ALL on the first page of google as he promises.

Re: [Scam] Anthony Morrison/Hidden Millionaires Infomercial

Hello I'm new to the thread, and figured I'd drop in to share my experience at one of Anthony Morrisons Seminars I attended around February of this year in the Sacramento area. I remember attending the seminar mainly to see what he was preaching. I've been interested in making money online for quite some time now, and have waded through many of the b.s. programs out there to find the nuggets of truth behind them, and find a place to start.

From what i remember about his presentation is his target audience. It's made for people who are interested in making money through affiliate marketing, but have no idea where to start. He throws terms at you, and tries to build the hype centered around what he offers to teach you which is definitely not possible in a 3 day course. Some of the terms i remember fairly clearly are SEO (Search Engine Optimization), PPC (Pay Per Click advertising), CPA (Click Per Action), and Social Networking (Facebook, Myspace, ETC...). It is simply not possible to take someone who knows nothing about the internet, train them in all these areas, and then expect you to retain that information to put into practice later. SEO alone would take, at minimum, 3 days to teach some one well enough to implement it's practices effectively. not to mention the tools behind there uses, and ways of identifying your competition.

Last, but not least was the ending of the seminar when they passed out the contracts, and started taking orders for his 3 day course they didn't even try to convince me to sign up after i mentioned I was an affiliate of clickbank, and amazon already. They're excuse was the seminar was meant for people whom had no knowledge of the internet at all. Not to mention the outrageous price that came along with it. The price is ultimately what made this a scam for me.

The price tag made it a scam because the information he's preaching can be found through out the internet for free. If you want to make things easier on yourself than pick up a book or two at barnes and noble. spend 60 dollars instead of 4,000. Focus on SEO, and Internet Marketing books. At the very least they will help you understand the internet better, and help you find a place to start. If building a website is where you're stuck than I would recommend wordpress. don't need any knowledge of of HTML or CSS to use that.

Anyways the short, and sweet of it Anthony Morrisons Program is a scam

Was Anthony Morrison the presenter?

Just went to the Morrison informational seminar. The training offered was not $3995, but $995. We were not told we had to buy into it then and there, but that we had almost a week until their deadline to decide.

Overall, of all of the informational seminars I've been to over the years, this one had the least hype and the least sales push. It seemed like just a lot of regular guys who had been using the system for a couple of years. They just answered questions. They didn't make any kind of promises about how much you could make, but they all had quit their regular jobs doing it.

Anyhow, I'm thinking I'm going to check it out.

I think they'll get the call looking for the $4-6k anyway.

When you consider how long this thread has been around, the staggering amount of posts, not to mention the staggering amount of redundant posts or or points made a reasonable person with good will has to ask why isn't this thread locked and or moved to the new "group therapy" forum?

I don't have a dog in the hunt with Morrison. He smells like scam artist. But, he's been around and still us in business and since there are laws that to some extent control what's legal or illegal regarding what he can advertise, what he can do legally and what he can't do that is illegal isn't it time to move on?

I'm just honestly curious why with nothing new on this subject it keeps just being hashed over and over with nary a new thing in a year?

Again, I got nothing positive to say about Morrison.

This thread stays active for two reasons.
1- People who post saying they were saved from being ripped off by AM from the info here.
2- Shills for AM saying how much money they made.

This thread is awesome! The shills' prolonged absence contradicts their argument that the secret to the "program" is hard work.
