Somehow I ended up on the email list of Forex Secret Journal. I've been receiving emails from them for several months now, all with ridiculous titles like
- Beta-Tester whoops the market for $465 in 24 hours
- Your Cost: $0 (Download Link Inside)
- Making money this fast is addictive
- You can easily achieve more than 80% win ratio using this…
- Be part of the top 2% of most profitable traders in the World
- $236,708.43 per month
- This video made me fall off my chair…
- $1000 per day Case Study
- Snatch $760 in just 72 seconds
But the trouble with all these emails is that they do not anywhere related to the subject lines! In fact, many of these examples from above lead to the exact same product promotion page.
You can see below that I receive 1-2 emails per day, each of them going to similar products over time. Looking at their email marketing like this, you can see that they pick a product, promote it for a few weeks, then move on.
You can see above that for the past 9 days I've received 11 emails promoting something called the “Secret Millionaire's Club”. If you are new to online scams, this might sound enticing. But to a salty-dog like myself, some with a name like that reeks of wasted money and disappointed customers. I haven't reviewed it yet, but I will.
No doubt it's about binary options trading.
And now we come to the most interesting thing about Forex Secret Journal – they don't actually do anything with Forex trading!
What Does Forex Secret Trading Actually Do?
The troubling thing is that the main page of their website looks like they actually teach you something about the Forex trading markets.
But when you sign up for their email list, there is actually nothing about Forex trading delivered to your inbox…it's all binary options!
I recently did a post about binary options scams, and how not only is this type of trading not regulated by the FTC, but it's very risky, and even has worse odds than regular ‘ol gambling.
You'll notice that a lot of the scams I've reviewed in this area of “make money online” are actually being promoted by Forex Secret Journal. Stuff like Push Button Millionaire and Easy Money Machines actually turned my stomach with their disgustingly fake actors and immoral advertising techniques.
Forex trading is a real way to make money, but it requires a lot of reading, math, and the ability to focus on the complex details of currency exchange rates. It's learnable, but it's no walk in the park.
Regardless, Forex Secret Journal doesn't even promote Forex-related products, and they spam my inbox with false-claims of having “free access” to “limited memberships”, and “money waiting for me”.
Stay away from these guys.
