who is jason bond

I’ve seen ads lately for a gentleman named Jason Bond. He’s selling an investment strategy promising to make you tons of money via stock trading. You know what they say about something sounding too good to be true. I decided to research to find out about this person and exactly what it is he is trying to sell. Here is what I found.

I went to his website, but there isn’t much information. There is a place to register your email on the main page. I can only assume that doing so would flood my inbox with offers to purchase products. I get enough emails, so I didn’t enter any of my info. We’ll have to look for info elsewhere.

Beware that there are several bias pieces on him and his services. I ignored those and focused on the more impartial reviews. First, let’s explore who Jason Bond is and exactly what he is selling, according to my research.

A Little Background and Product Information

Jason Bond is a former school teacher who left the profession in 2011 to set up a newsletter – “Jason Bond Picks.” He specializes in penny stocks and focuses on day and swing trading.

If you subscribe to his services, you will have access to various online training tools and resources, and you can access his live chat rooms and receive stock alerts.

Levels of Membership

The most basic level is the “Day and Swing Trade” package. For $399 per quarter, you receive up to 10 stock alerts per week on stocks priced $10 per share or less, access to a daily watch list, and access to his online educational suite. This basic package targets the busy professional who doesn’t have time to sit in front of a computer all day and watch their portfolio.

The “Long-Term Trading” package will set you back $1999 per year and is marketed to the busy professional looking for longer-term gains. If you subscribe, you get access to various online learning tools, the chat room, online updates and alerts, and Jason’s own picks.

The “Millionaire Roadmap” package is $9999 per year and will give you full access to all of Jason’s services. It is geared to the serious trader who wants to make serious money. It didn’t give much of a description beyond that, but who doesn’t want to make serious money right?

Some Points of Concern

A little digging revealed more than one red flag from former members and those who have investigated him. One of the first things you’ll notice, is his claim of Harvard Business School inviting him to speak. But, a call to the Provost of the school reveals that this claim is not true and he has never heard of Jason Bond.

Then there is the claim from Jason himself stating that his trading methods have made him north of $26 Million in the past five years, but you won’t find any proof of this on any bank statements or tax returns. Essentially, Jason is issuing buy and sell alerts to his paid subscribers on highly illiquid penny stocks. Once prices inflate or deflate, Jason can dump his position. Most of his recommendations are on companies that are highly dubious at best. The greater trading community wouldn’t waste their time with most of the companies on his watch list, but a group of people inside a chat room might be a different story. Basically, this boils down to a pump and dump scam. He gets away with it because the companies are not compensating him, and he is not a broker. If either of those things were true, then this would amount to Securities fraud.

Final Thoughts on Jason Bond

So, what is the bottom line here? I would say that Jason Bond is a clever marketer and salesperson, but he is essentially selling a scam. There are too many red flags and uncertainties to give credit to what he is selling. Buyer beware on this one. Do your own homework, but just remember that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Most of what he is pushing, you can learn on your own for free, and you won’t be locked into a chat room of lemmings trying to mirror what the Administrator is doing. I went in with an open mind, but I found too many things about him that left a bad taste in my mouth to lend him credibility.

If you are a member of his services or have any experience with them, please share your experience in the comments below. I’d love to know how things went for you.
