Retired Millionaire Description

The Retired Millionaire is an online marketing package seemingly designed to ensure that you get your chance at becoming a millionaire by learning the techniques employed by the creator. The author, Christopher Everson, has allegedly become a multimillionaire over his 15 years in business, while at the same time, learning all the tricks he now wishes to impart his knowledge on a lucky group under the pretext of wanting to change the way internet marketing is perceived. Even though the idea might seem a bit far fetched, it seems that Everson is one of the most respected online marketing specialists on the internet.

Retired Millionaire Detailed Overview

The contents of the “The Retired Millionaire” package are represented by an online marketing guide meant to show you the ropes of internet marketing and allegedly let you in on the game the big boys play. You also receive resale rights for around 200 products that you can begin selling right away. Along with cashing in on the profits taught by Everson, and hundreds upon hundreds of other tutorials, you are awarded PLR articles and tips on how to get by in the world of internet marketing with minimal effort and maximal pay are included. In case you want to create your own website, included in the package are over 200 website templates. Everything in the package is designed around the idea of making your foray into internet marketing as effortless as possible, while letting you in on the best kept secrets of the select few that have made it big in this field.

Apparently, this package is a limited edition that only 50 lucky people can benefit from, but there are articles on the web dating as far back as the beginning of 2008, and there still are copies of the package available, so The Retired Millionaire is either something only 40 something persons have heard about, which would hardly be the case, or more than 50 copies have been sold in this interval. While the credibility of Christopher Everson seems to be unquestionable in certain circles, the method through which he is selling the secrets of his trade before allegedly closing shop is at least a little questionable.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Retired Millionaire Reputation

What do people have to say about this product? The word out there is not very positive. While there are those singing the praises of this package and of its benefits, and those attesting to the credibility of its author, there are several accounts from users who have been disappointed by the contents of the package and have gone so far as deeming it as useless. Accounts from people failing to receive their money back despite requesting the refund during the 56-day guarantee period also exist, basically making investing your hard earned money in this package highly unadvisable.

Add me to the list

Where were all you guys and your helpful comments when I got suckered? Yes add me to the list, I spent $27 and found the information fugue and informative. Only thing clear was more packets or programs to buy! Same story as rest, ebook links bad or missing pages. Received several calls per day from new sales rep with questions about my debt and credit status and he also gave me the famous line, takes money to make money - but not getting anymore of mine! Finally stopped answering the calls, but the messages stated not sure what or why - this is just hurting you not me, etc! Currently, attempting to receive refund and am receiving responses, but want to assist with problem or provide personal coaching, yeah for another fee! Waiting for Clink Bank to open Monday, so I can call Customer Service! Stay away - far far away! Better to give your money to charity or heck just send it to me! Good luck on getting rich or making a few bucks on the Internet, but please don't send this guy or his associates anymore money!

Keep Away from this Non-Product

Scammed yet again! As a new kid on the IM block, I fell for the wonderful hype promising a step-by-step method and thought, "At last!" I can actually get a practical method for setting up in Internet Marketing.

Alas! If only I had discovered this website before! If I had read these reviews I would never have bought into the package. Anyway, I should have known better than to believe in a 'retired' millionaire who was still marketing cheap stuff.

Firstly, I received nothing after I paid my money. It was only after chasing them three weeks later that they actually directed me to the download.

What a disappointment. I didn't find any original material that was actually created by Everson (if the young chap in the peaked hat and flash car on the crackly video is really him). If I had seen that before buying, I would never have got sucked in. The banner ad shows a thoughtful elderly man, who could have been a retired millionaire. Spot the difference.

In the package I received 42 old PLR e-books (and I already have over a 100 freebies on my hard drive with the same stuff in them; so I didn’t need any more of that). And none of the supposed Resell gifts would download. The instruction was to install "7Zip" if there was any difficulty in opening the products. I did so. It made no difference: all I could download were pictures of the covers. No resell products.

And the very short 'videos' are pitiful. Obviously they are a few freebie videos he has picked up somewhere, very sparse, spouting generalities and are of no practical assistance.

So where is the promised 'step-by-step' instruction? I have yet to find it.

It is just a bunch of haphazard freebies, not even rehashed, with no guided instruction, nor order of reading.

I must get on to Clickbank right away.

The Retired Millionaire Review

I bought this program and received phone calls from people in three different states all wanting my EXACT personal debt to the penny in order to comply with FTC regulations. The phone calls started in California then came from Arizona then from Florida. They all seemed to be connected to each other and started their call with we can help you make money now give us all your financial info. Right away I felt there was something wrong with it so I never gave them anything. When I refused one guy said we need it for FTC regulations and was very stern with me that I get it. I just hung up but they kept phoning so I ignored them. The last call I got from one of them later on which I answered was someone asking me way I didn't get involved with the program and I explained why. He was actually understanding and didn't call again. So watch who your dealing with and don't give your financial info to no one. It's not worth the risk.

Worthless!

Unfortunately, I ordered this product and like others have said, many links are broken, and information runs back to 2006 :(. A lot has changed since 2006, and I would have liked to have had current information.

The worst though is that I have received a TON of spam emails since ordering this product! Today, I received an email from an AOL user, and when I clicked reply, it went back to the Internet Millionaire. I'm wondering if others have received a lot of spam email too??

Some of the reputable internet marketers check these sites and make sure that they take care of these issues one by one to their customer's satisfaction. I haven't seen that here. We shouldn't have to go back through clickbank to get the money back! I rarely order anything from the internet, but from now on, I will check these sites to see where the IM is hopping in taking care of business.

I found some valuable info in this program

Okay, First off, I did a google search to see if this product was a scam or not! I read two reviews. One guy went on & on about how the material was totally useless & how he finally ended up getting a refund. The second review was from somebody who was pretty neutral. He pointed out the age of articles & things like that but said that you could make money if you followed the suggestions.

Now I read in here where about 8 or so other people are saying that this product is useless. My question to you is: What were you expecting for $47 or less? I bought the program today for $17 & I am thrilled with the information that I received. Yes! I encountered a couple of broken links in the downloads section. Yes! Some of the materials are from 2005 & so forth. However, for a newbie like me, the articles alone were well worth my $17. The resell-able stuff was helpful too as far as giving me ideas to market my affiliate business & my other websites. The videos on driving traffic is being put to use as I write this & I have no doubt that I will get results from what I learned.

Now, when I decided to invest my hard earned $17, I was not looking for it to purchase me a million dollar business. I was just looking for something that would give me more leverage with my marketing campaigns. I got what I was looking for and a whole lot more. I am smiling as I write this because I was really struggling to make sales with this internet marketing thing & was getting frustrated as heck. Now, I have a lot of other things that I can do immediately to get my business going full speed. I am so glad that I didn't let the first review of the retired millionaire stop me from buying it!

I have never before even heard of the author of the program & still have no idea who he is, whether he is retired or not & frankly, I don't care. The information in his program is very helpful to me & therefore, my $17 was money well spent.

If you are reading this & considering buying the retired millionaire, I would say go ahead & buy it with the intent on building up your own library of articles to guide you or use for building backlinks to your landing page. Do not buy this program thinking that you are gonna get rich over night while it collects dust in a corner. You will have to put in some work & this program lays out nicely what kind of work you will have to put in. Again, I have not made a dime from it yet, but, I will.

For those who are calling this program useless, I just don't know what you were expecting for your money. You have tarnished the programs name because you didn't want to do the work. (my opinion) Honestly, every program that I have researched has a few people calling them scams. I don't see how all these people could stay in business if they were really as bad as you make them out to be. Come on people. Stop looking for the quick fix & realize that you are in a business that requires some investing to make money. You might invest $47 in this product, $79 in another product & yet $17 in another one, but when you implement the different combined strategies you have a million dollars worth of ideas.

Thank you for reading this & please look for follow ups from me as I put the strategies to use. I will be writing reviews & articles about this & other programs that I shell out my hard earned money for.

Ps. I spend more at eating at Ryans twice a week than I spend on these money making programs.

Bought in to see my money disappear I guess LOL

Well I thought I'd like to investigate online programs. I notice they all want money up front. I even received phone calls from what sounded like ex-used car salesmen. "We make money when you make money" so why can't they take payment out of my first checks? I think everyone should have the chance to flog a dead horse. This is the experience you will get with this and other online schemes. The old saying "once bitten twice shy". If t. v. is a vast wasteland, then online affiliate marketing is a bottomless quagmire. Maybe there are profitable honest programs out there, but how would you ever find them through all the ripoffs? stephen

Get it for just $7

Everyone listen closely. This guy is a total scammer. I haven't actually bought the product, but do you know that I could have got it for just $7? All you have to do is to close your browser tab. The first time Mr Everson gives a 50% discount, the second time he gives a 60% discount, and if you go on closing your browser tab he gives it for $7 claiming that it's the only remaining one. Being a shrewd marketer I immediately knew that his product must be worthless, so I went to his sales page through a different IP address, and the same thing happened. I looked up on some reviews and my suspicions were confirmed, since this fellow doesn't even respond to money back claims. I downloaded the ebooks he was claiming to give from a fellow marketer who got caught up in the scam and found that they were pretty much outdated with no value in them, master reseller rights or not. Just don't get caught up in the picture of him brooding like a real millionaire. He should have moved into graphic designing.

Most invaluable - Is this product a joke

“I tried everything, and made nothing” is mentioned on the sales page. Well that could summarize my overall feeling regarding that product.

I purchased it at the beginning of February. The content is so disorganized and you can find many items for free on the web. On the download page, he first recommends a free website I would not recommend. Confidence goes down. Then it is advised to first read 2 books (about 100 pages) which are really information for newbies; no concrete training, maybe some business ideas. Then you have this bunch of products on various subjects.

I was expecting a personalized system by the owner, not that.

Disappointed with Retired Millionaire

This is the only product of it's type that I have ever bought. I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got included was a website that is of no interest to me, some instruction about internet marketing, including some interesting tidbits, and a whole lot of resellable ebooks and some esoftware.

Most of it is pretty old I think, but some of the ebooks would have been good quality in their day.

I attempted to download every single item. About fourteen of the items either had broken links, or the files were missing, or having downloaded the item, it wouldn't unpack or run. That was disappointing.

More disappointing was the fact that when I used the email address provided with the offer to tell the supplier about these problems, my email was returned - undeliverable. In fact, despite being on the Retired Millionaire's mailing list (from which it is now quite clear that he has not actually retired), I have not been able to have any dialogue with him whatsoever! I wrote again and told him of my disappointment (by replying to one of his emails) but received no reply.

This was very disappointing from a man who claims that, having retired a wealthy man, he just wants to pass on his knowledge so that other people can go on to achieve the same success. I really don't know why I believed all that baloney in the first place! I thought he wanted to be my mentor, but all he wanted was my money.

In fairness, I wouldn't class the product as a scam. I downloaded quite a lot of information, some of which has some value - and I paid very little for the product. But I now consider his approach to be a complete con, and as a business person myself, I know I could not survive if I was as careless about my reputation and my after-sales service as the Retired Millionaire.

I was scammed again

When reading all the comments in here it’s insane that no authority has stopped him on his ongoing scamming. I have purchased his program too for $197. It was a library of over 200 eBooks which I could use or resell. He even suggested the amount I could purchase. Okay I got what I paid for 200 eBooks and banners, text files, commercial ads and so on, but nothing about HOW to use it and WHERE to promote. The package hat a LOT of information really, I think it would take me months to read all this. He didn’t stop here, after 2 days I got a mail of more products to buy and again 7 days later. After a month they called me to hear how I was doing. I told them I want a refund and that the service was very poor because they never returned my emails. So he said they were very busy because of the amount of people coming in and if I allowed it they want me in a mentoring program for a monthly fee…I hung up. Please stay away they are very good in selling eBooks and stuff that are useless.

Scam and a total waste of money

Some months ago I bought the starter package for $67 which proved to be a total waste of money. It consists of a video and some techniques. And in it most of the links do not work. I tried to email them to get a refund, but the email address was a fake and the email wasn't sent. I think the Retired Millionaire became a millionaire by robbing other people like me. Luckily, I got a refund from click bank. Therefore my suggestion to everyone would be that it's a scam and there many other places to invest your money rather than Retired Millionaire.

This Is A Joke

I was almost suckered into failing for this program, but luckily I did not. My friend was not so lucky. He wasted over $50 dollars with the starter program and honestly didn't help really. In fact a lot of the links were broken. There are better programs out there and this one is over priced and doesn't really offer much value at all.

Messy product

I was suckered into Retired Millionaire with a one time offer that I saw on the site. There were a lot of exciting promises on the website which really made me wonder, so I went ahead and bought the starter package for $67. The promises on the website later proved to be false. The site is messy, with a lot of broken links and poor customer service. A lot of the techniques published in there I also already knew, so they weren't as original as the site first claimed. I attempted to email them for a refund but got nowhere, my emails actually bounced back to me and I suspect the email was a fake! I managed to get a refund using Clickbank. I strongly suggest you don't invest in this program, there are so many better alternatives.

Retired Millionaire is a scam

I purchased it one month back and joined this program paying $67 as starter package. It consists of some useless techniques which are not that unique as stated in a video. These techniques are already used and known to every one. Till now I am not able to make any sales. The author of Retired Millionaire will remain a millionaire after making a fool out of people like me. You will only receive a lot of spam mails, no real money. Please stay away from this product, it seems to be a complete a scam to me. I don’t have any hope of getting my money back.

D - Like my rating, Pretty Lame

I got suckered into this guy's little game. I bought the product, luckily it was through Clickbank and everyone knows you can get a no questions asked refund from Clickbank through their customer support section.

But there were three things the ticked me off about the Retired Millionaire package:

1. First, his sales page made me think that he had limited copies, which was not the case at all and soon enough found out that this page has been up for quite a while.

2. His training videos weren't as "secretive" and powerful as I thought they would be, I knew a lot of them already, and their PLR package was a total failure, maybe I'm over exaggerating, but the packages weren't that great.

3. I even got suckered into his One Time Offer, which was a tactic which I could have figured out myself, and this time I made the payment straight through to Paypal instead of Clickbank. On his page it said for refund requests or questions send to this email (which I don't remember. I guess I should have tested out the email first, but I didn't, and when I found out how bad his package was, I wanted a refund for the One Time Offer. But it turns out that every time I sent him an email for a refund, what came back in my inbox was Mail Delivery System error that my email bounced back! Not, once, but at least 5 times I've tried with utter failure.

So I gave up and let it be, however, I did get my refund off the main product which was good enough for me, Clickbank is still reliable and I hope it will stay that way. Anyways, I hope this rant keeps people away from this product.

Paid with Paypal. Opened up a dispute and was refunded by Clickbank

Many of the links in the page were broken. I received no reply to any email I sent, and I must have sent at least eight. You are guided to your "free website". It is totally useless. You have to upgrade to a starter package for $67 and then you are given one little page you have no control over and are only able to sell one product from a list of about 7. The products are lame, really lame. I am quite certain this ridiculous website is also owned by the author of Retired Millionaire. Why not go for the double, if not triple sting.

Make sure any of these things are paid for with Paypal. If you are not totally happy with what you have purchased, open a dispute in Paypal and generally Clickbank will reply within 24 hrs stating your refund has been processed and please allow 2 - 5 business days for the refund to be visible in your account.

I would not recommend this info to anyone, and I think the site in itself preys on those in need of money. You will not be making any fast money here folks, unless of course your name is Chris Everson.

Make sure you read the very, very fine print

I tried this about a little over a month ago. The article stated that it was $7.95 to join. If you made money within 24 hours after you started you would be charged $197. If you didn't make anything, you would get a refund. It took me two days just to wade through part of the training which I couldn't understand. There was a lot of material to go through. Before I could get anything together, they took the $197 out of my account. They didn't want to refund my money, but I kept persisting. They said that it was stated in the fine print that it would be taken out no matter if there was a profit or not. I hadn't seen it. In all fairness if I were more computer savvy it might be a workable program. They did refund my money.

The Retired Millionaire

"The Retired Millionaire" is not retired, but alive and well through it's pseudonymn author, Chris Everson, ripping off people who are gullible enough to sucker in to the sales page. I did and have had not contact or product delivered. Please don't make the same mistake. Everson and anyone who promotes this "product" should be banned or blackballed from IM. They are FRAUDS!

A Scam for me Too!

I agree. I think you can make money if you are at the top of the scheme, but for everyday people, this will be a big waste of time and money. I am also trying to get my money back and the lack of answering the emails is getting very frustrating. PLEASE do not try this scheme out for yourselves. The "secrets" and tips for the "lucky few" are a complete take in and you won't make any money from Retired Millionaire!

A Scam!... well for me anyways :(

I bought the Retired Millionaire package for $47. After he had my money, I received no link, no information on where and how to download the package from :(. I didn't get any turnkey sites, tutorials or products with resale rights. All I got was spam mails, telling me to contact his affiliates and friends. It said I could request a refund within 50 something days, but when I tried to reply to his mails, just gave me an undeliverable error. Really disappointed having lost $47 down the drain :(.

My advice on this product is, PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

K.
