  2. Hi Ben,
    Just a quick note to say thanks. I am forever looking for an honest opinion from someone when an ‘opportunity’ lands in my inbox. From your comments and a link you provided, I feel a lot happier with what I am about to try.
    Will be back for more!!

  3. Hi Ben,

    I wondered if you or anyone else knows anything about D & E Associates? Peter Deegan is the Managing Partner and Christopher Emmerson is a Partner? They are offering Hores racing tips, I am thinking of joining but I cannot find any information anywhere on them or the company.

    Please Help.

    Thanks for the excellent site, I have been using it for a while now it is a great source of information. Thank you.

    Kind regards

  4. Hello Ben,
    I read these pages and have often wondered about this.
    Many years ago I bought a couple of “units” in a thing which was called Omega. Some time later there were a few people imprisoned in USA and one died of the people “at the top” Then silence for a long time as I got sick of reading rubbish from someone called Dove. Now I get info almost daily from a couple of “sources” But no one gains a cent from this (I imagine) and so I ask why do they keep sending information usually saying deliveries today next Tuesday etc etc. Do you have a clue Ben? Just morbid curiosity.

  5. Hi, I have been using D&E since last year and they are all that they claim to be. They usually hit a winner 1 in 3 and sometimes even less. If you use a simple math formula you can recoupe any loosing streak without the betting getting too high.

  7. Hi,

    I agree this forum is a great resource for the help and experience of others. I have been selling information products only since January 2008 I too subscribed to Andrew Reynolds Cash On Demand for over a year. I can confidentally state that if you don’t mind working hard – and the hardest work is with sales copy imho! Then you can reap the rewards even in this economic climate. I have just finished publishing my third information product DVD ROM and am very hopeful of sales just as with my previous couple of products. It has taken me 6 months to get where I am which is so far recouping half of my £2000 set-up costs – the future looks promising – already I’ve been offered a JV with another information publisher. Don’t believe the hype that you get rich in a couple of months – it won’t happen. Its a steady process you have to keep pushing your products out there continously and I use all the FREE ways!

    Kevin – if you want to get a licensed product I could put you in touch with someone who I use. The thing is though – your product can be the best thing in the world it is the SALES COPY that is more important. I found this out in the first few months. Thats why these information publishing companies are called Acme Marketing or whatever!! It’s all in the copy! Take a look at my latest product here:


    Anyone serious about getting into this business needs to invest their time in learning the art of sales copy – even if you decide to hire someone else to do it (and it may cost a fortune for something half decently done), you need to know what to look for. I have spent alot of time learning and honing this craft. I advise anyone else to do the same and get into the “mind-set” if I can do it and I’m no literary genius then anyone can!

    Sorry to go on for so long! Hope the info helps!

  8. Hi,
    Just found your site checking out the cash-on-demand man Andrew Reynolds, I’ve subscibed to the modules and now waiting for number 5.

    I’ve been invited to one of those bootcamps so I’m going this week June 27th Hope it’s worthwhile.

    I’ve not found anything bad about this guy, so that I’m pleased about that, Well let you know how I get on.

    Best wishes

  9. Best of luck Jan with the seminar be careful you don’t get sucked into buying too many licensed products as some of these seminars are like giant sales junkets! I’ve never been to one myself but know a few people who have and have parted with alot of money for licenses to products they don’t know the first thing what to do with!

  10. Read your review on getrichathome. Very informative and saved me £40.

    You are wrong on Macs though. I can read and write Word, Excel and PowerPoint docs using Microsoft Office for Mac, OpenOffice or Apple’s iWork and do so all of the time.

    Your readers can find a link to OpenOffice at the above website.

  11. Same as Simon,I had my card ready yesterday till I read your report, thanks for saving me £40.
    Now I’ve found you I am trawling your information to find the best startup product.

  12. Hi Ben

    Not sure whether you were aware of this?
    Worth checking the information again perhaps efore someone else gets stung!
    My concern would be this linked ad is still on google and if your information is correct, maybe it shouldnt be after what youve said and after I tracked down the following snippet from her HM revenue and customs site

    [Hi Ken, thanks for posting this. Sorry for editing your comment but I was aware of this on the HMRC site and I refrained from posting it due to threats I received around Christmas time (Christmas Eve) from the wife of the offender. Whether I am right or not, I really couldn’t be bothered with the hassle of solicitor’s letters etc. She was trying to make me remove ALL of the reviews/information about her product which I decided not to do. Hopefully those doing their due dilligence about the product will see what a poor experience I had and avoid it. Cheers, Ben]

  13. Hi everyone my name is Imran and iam an ex student of andrew reynolds i stopped the course after module 12 from what i know is that there is 24 modules all together i first tryed direct mail worked on small scale it made money I now have a website http://www.mr-rights.com the best way to make money in this business is to find your niche market and then to market your product to that niche or to sell products that come with master resell rights,private label rights so your customers can sell them on. my first product is on the same lines as cash on demand but a shorter version it covers all things that cash on demand teach’s you so if you want to take the shortcut route just check my website out

  14. Hi Ben,

    Have you heard of this guy;

    David Anderson’s UK Millionaire Maker…

    Seems expensive, any thoughts?

    Comment by Steve — 14th January 2009 @ 4:34 pm

  15. Hi Steve,

    I’ve heard of David once or twice in the past – at one point I started to receive his email newsletters which was strange as I never requested them.

    Apart from receiving unwanted email from him, I know very little.

    Sorry I can’t be more help…


    Comment by Ben — 14th January 2009 @ 5:20 pm

  16. I have recieved a letter about a week ago all about how to join you for free at website [removed] with a password [removed]. Ive been trying to get through all week with no success, now i think i have passed the deadline. Will i still be able to access this site or is there any more of the same type of offers. Ive bought the cash on demand system and been to a bootcamp in bournmouth and actually shook andrews hand. Ive tried a few things on the internet with no success and great expence, i think i need a mentor or some kind of help

    Comment by james byrne — 28th April 2009 @ 11:03 pm

  17. Hi James,

    I just tried to access the website you provided with the password and it worked fine for me. If you are interested in the offer it may be worth emailing Andrew directly to ask for help.

    Thanks, Ben

  18. Hi
    I have read your comments with interest and would agree with you all about spending money without due diligence. I think most of those trying to make money on the internet have been scammed at one time or another and that will go on until you learn from it!! Because the scammer’s will always be out there.
    I learned from a site called Thirty Day Challenge. Its by a fellow called Ed Dale and boy is this guy clued up. It cost you nothing to join and he Teaches you all the need to know stuff about making money on the internet.
    Give it a go you have nothing to lose and i mean nothing!!

    Best of luck.

  19. Spam Arrest

    I followed your link – this is what they wrote – maybe they meant to say something else but this is a copy

    The Spam Arrest free trial gives you a chance to try out our service before purchasing a subscription. There is no obligation, and you may cancel at any time.

    If you have not subscribed to Spam Arrest by the end of the trial, your account will automatically be converted to a month-to-month subscription, and your credit card will be billed at the standard rate of $5.95 per month.

    [Addition by Ben: I can see what you mean – it doesn’t make much sense but what I think they mean is that unless you choose a particular payment plan (6 monthly, yearly etc) then you will be placed on the more expensive pay monthly plan. I’ve been so impressed by SpamArrest that I’ve bought a lifetime subscription which I think was a unique offer they did a few months ago.]

  20. I just wanted to say hi Ben and thank you for your site.

    I am on a mission to earn some serious cash and after some considerable time scouring the net for valid and applicable advice, I came across your sites which were extremely influential in helping me make my next move.

    You can see/follow what I am up to from my own personal blog (www.zerotoblack.com) and my twitter (twitter.com/zerotoblack).

    Thanks again for ‘being there’ and keep up the good work.

  22. Hi,

    Really great, interesting and useful site!

    My comment is about “1-up” schemes…

    As I understand it, they are not pyramid schemes because there is no ‘fat cat’ at the top level, who stays there, accepting money from multiple levels beneath him until the scheme collapses.

    In a 1-up scheme: after receiving money from 2 people you are on your own again – i.e. not receiving money from anyone.

    Basically, in a 1-up scheme, after receiving money from two people you’re starting from scratch again as your ‘down-lines’ no longer exist.

    Kind regards,

  23. Hi Ben,

    I was doing an investigation on a spam email that reached my computer. So I decided to browse privately through his link. Now I’ve been online for quite some time now and if you click my Name you will read a horrific life experience.

    Anyway… back to the spam email.

    I landed on a website that claimed it was God’s gift to money online and riches. ‘Ya… right’… So I investigated Alexa. The website ranked 3, 784,456 or whatever. Ya sure… you’re making millions with low traffic?

    From end to end I finally found the victim and I also found the crooks. Deeper I went.. and voila! I found your outstanding review on Simon & Orlando. Yeah, these guys are at it again.

    They are blabbering about the millions they make and how everyone can do the same following their instructions. http://yourtotalmarketingsolution.com & http://www.overnightcashexplosion.com are impressive however dangerous.

    They even know how to manipulate the pages with so much content and
    distractions the average person wouldn’t even consider clicking the links. But if they did, they would discover that the links were 90% broken.

    Anyway… I was impressed with your review. I like your approach. I have a brand new magazine that I want to launch fairly soon. Its located here. http://successunplugged.com/news and I would love to include your review.

    Please let me know when you have a chance. Contact me through the email I left with my post. Let’s chat.

    Best Regards,

    Lonnie Amirault

  25. Please give me some info about Fantastic Pay! About three or four months ago they wouldn’t let me in with the password that I had used since Brian first started this business. I have $600 dollars invested with then and haven’t received a penny!!!

    Comment by Bernice Shore — 16th March 2011 @ 3:24 pm

  26. Do not invest any money with fantastic pay and Brian. He`s a crook. a lot of us lost money with him . I lost $2000.00 with HIM AND HIS PROMISES OF LIFE TIME INCOME. Watch out Hes a Crook.

    Comment by james — 8th December 2012 @ 1:38 am
