Is Cash for Patriots a Scam – Wow This Is Misleading…

Cash For Patriots Program


Cash For Patriots ProgramThe Cash for Patriots program presented by Zach Sheidt is something that he claims anyone regardless of their age, income level, social status, etc. can make money with. He basically leads you to believe that you will be able to sign up for some list and get checks in the mail like clockwork. But is this really all true or is Cash for Patriots a scam program that you should avoid altogether?

While it’s not a scam but it is extremely misleading and in this short review I will be going over why. Can you make money with this? Sure. But are you going to be signing up for some list in receiving checks in the mail like he leads you to believe? Absolutely not.

Cash for Patriots Review

I’m guessing you are suspicious of this program after watching the ridiculous video presentation put on by Zach Scheidt, as I was. The video presentation went on and on for probably around 45 minutes or so and really didn’t tell you much of anything, reminding very much of the “Freedom Checks” sales pitch that you may have heard of.

Basically what you were led to believe by Zach during the presentation was that this is a program that takes advantage of president Trump’s new tax code. Throughout probably around half or maybe even over half of the presentation Zach just talks about all the money that people were making getting these checks in the mail.

He talks about a “Bob S” that has made $6010…

And then there was “Suzanne V who collected $20,758. Then there was “Jessica P” who had supposedly made $51,000 so far…

And the list goes on and on. To be honest it was getting pretty darn annoying hearing him talk about all these people making all this money and providing absolutely no proof of any of it. All he was doing is stating people’s names and claiming that they made certain amounts of money with this but there is no way for me to dig in any deeper and actually find out if these claims are true or not.

Are they true? This is something you can form your own opinion about but in my opinion is a good chance they are not. Why do I say this? Well because I have reviewed plenty of misleading sales pitches by Agora Financial products before, which is the company behind this product, and the sales pitches are often filled with lies and misleading information.

What This Program Supposedly Does

Zach tells you that this program he is going to be letting you get into today will show you exactly how do collect these checks. All you have to do is follow a few simple instructions to enroll in the program and add your name to some list.

Unlike Social Security, there are no requirements to collect these checks. There is no certain age you have to be, no certain income level you have to have, etc. And unlike Social Security these checks do not come from the government. They come from the private sector.

But this is all confusing… What the heck is this program really?

What This Program Really is…. VERY MISLEADING

It took a fair bit of research and digging around trying to find out what this program really is. And I’ll tell you what it is not, which is some program where you just add your name to the list and start collecting checks.

When Zach started talking about money being “stranded” overseas this is when you get your first clue of what the program really is about.

What he is talking about is how US corporations hold tons of money overseas which is in a sense stranded and that Pres. Trump’s new tax code will be able to bring it back to the US where it will be distributed to patriots like yourself.

The reason money is stranded overseas by these corporations is because of how the taxes work. They don’t want to bring the money back into the US because they know that they will have to give an arm and a leg in taxes if they do.

What Zach is saying is that when these companies do bring home their fortunes under Trump’s new tax code they will distribute much of the money in the form of dividends and if you are a shareholder in the company you will capitalize on this.

So there is no real program called Cash for Patriots or any sort of program at all. This Cash for Patriots sales pitch really is just for in information product that will give you advice on what investments you can make to hopefully be able to get these dividends from certain companies when they bring money back to the US.


In order to get this free Cash for Patriots info product you must first subscribe for a free trial of Zach’s newsletter called Lifetime Income Report. This newsletter is a publication by Agora Financial which is well known for financial newsletters such as this.

If you sign up you will get a free year subscription but after that year you will have to pay between $49 and $89 depending on what subscription package you decide to go with.

The main part of this newsletter are the 12 monthly issues that will be given out to members every month. In the monthly issues Zach and his team will provide investment advice and look into different opportunities that they are planning in getting involved with. Basically what it will do is provide advice telling you what they think you should invest in. You will also get email updates on the market and any urgent alerts if there is a great buy-in opportunity or if you need to sell right away for some reason.

Conclusion on Cash for Patriots – Scam?

I would not call Cash for Patriots a scam. I would just say it’s a very misleading sales pitch. But yes you can make money with it, just know that is not the magic fairytale program that it claims to be. Basically this all seems to be a sales pitch to lure people in to subscribing to the Lifetime Income Report newsletter. After all Zach has to make money somehow right? The end of the newsletter is the only thing he is actually selling here and can make money with.

As far as Lifetime Income Report goes this is in no way a scam. It’s just Zach and his team providing decent investment advice. You can read more about this newsletter in a review I read about it here if you wish to.

Anyway… That’s all I have to write for you here today. I hope you found this review insightful and helpful. Please leave any questions or comments you may have below and I’ll get back to you when I can 🙂

And before you go. I’ve made this list of my top picks for making money online. They aren’t about investing but they still might be something of interest to you.

  1. thank you for the info on the Patriots for cash program. As you stated, it is very misleading and I was wondering if I could contact any of the folks that have received the checks to make sure that this is a valid program. you answered all my questions and I thank you for doing so! Have a great day!

  2. Hello – I am on Soc.Sec. disability and I was told by social security that I am not allowed to receive checks for any purpose or my soc.sec. check will stop. Is the patriots check a ploy to get people to sign up and then loose their monthly check they live from. It sounds like it and I am disabled and can’t work but I wish it was that easy.

    1. Hi Stoney,

      No it is not. It is just a very misleading sales pitch. The checks they talk about receiving are dividends from investments. What they are trying to sell you is an investment newsletter.

    2. Mr. Morris,

      You cannot work and collect income if you are talking about SSDI. You could lose benefits then. If you have a family member who sends you a few hundred dollars per month to help you out, they can’t stop your benefits. If you are on SSI, which is more of a welfare program, it may be different. There are different rules for SSI.

      SSDI is from taxes you personally paid in and that your employer matched. It is YOUR money. SSI is for those with no, or inadequate work credits. The working tax payers fund this just like cash welfare, food stamps, etc.

      There are lots of caveats and different criteria. It’s lots of reading but visit the SSA website.

  3. There should be a law against advertisements like this, targeting the elderly, unemployed and low income. Whether or not they’re targeting these groups of people, their advertising is totally misleading and just not true! The rule I always use is: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true. Who’s going to send anybody checks for just putting your name on a list? It just doesn’t happen! Thank you, Kyle, for explaining this.

    1. I agree. Why can people suggest untruths, lie when they sell stuff on the internet. Example, these products that claim to erase wrinkles & other signs of aging, all using the same pics of the same people. We need truth in advertising on the web.The should be held accountable.

  4. Thank you for this informative blog. Obviously the advertisement did not give any real information at all at least not until the end I never could stand to wait that long. I usually became angry after about 20 or minutes and decided not to listen anymore I knew it had to be a scam of some kind and it turned out to be true. Again thank you very much for the information and now I understand how it might work but I doubt that I have the patience to actually do it.

  5. Thanks for giving us (the common uninformed American) the straight up truth about this. It is very miss leadling and should not be allowed. I really appreciate the fact that there are still people out there like you who will let the truth be known.

  6. As soon as I read the first few sentences I thought what great comedy fodder for John Oliver, who did a brilliant skewer of the egregious leeching that televangelists do to their followers. I despise schemes like this that target those that are desperate for extra income.

  7. Thank you for explaining this whole Cash for Patriots idea. I didn’t really think understand it. You made sense of it for me.

  8. Kyle,
    I worked in the securities industry for over 10 yrs, so I know about the dividend payouts and you have the option to have it put in the brokerage money market or have them reinvested which shows up as fraction number after the decimal point until there is enough to buy another share (which a whole lot of people in the industry don’t understand where it comes from) not all the companies stock pay dividends, and when stocks pay dividends its almost always quarterly, mutual funds, ETFs, closed end funds, which are made up of multiple companies, mostly pay monthly, so in fact not only do you need to pay for their newsletter you would also have to have a brokerage account, which takes money and leads to taxes on dividends, capital gains, or capital loss be it long term or short term capital gains or loss, so actually it could be very harmful to a whole lot of people adding additional tax filings, which then if they had been doing their own taxes, may be above their heads. Those who are on disability or started drawing SSI at age 62, have a threshold of $500 their allowed to make in addition to drawing the SSI, which would be affected if they put enough money over time (which takes away from paying bills) to make enough to worry about, they may not live long enough to worry about,so basically you have to have some money to make money

  9. This makes me so mad. I am on SSI and make the bare minimum, that I struggle to pay my rent, and HIS hype is if I spend more money to invest in his program (oh, by the way, I am a true American Patriot Zack) I play my cards right, rub the genie in the bottle, and hold my breath, and bet on the right investment I could get a dividend check for maybe 265.00…have people no shame then to pray on citizens that are struggling to even buy medication. Has the bottom line on everything about America come down to nothing more than $$$$$. Shameful!

  10. Hi Kyle,
    Can you explain to me how the Cash for Patriots program works. I understand it is an investment program but how do you get started?

  11. I work with a lot of seniors that know they can get real answers and advice from me about advertisements like these.
    I am a Senior, an Air Force Veteran, wife to a AF Retiree, mom of two and business owner.
    EVERYONE needs to remember,WE are the American citizens and patriots who can help each other, by passing on the correct information.
    THANK YOU for being that person Kyle! I will be doing the same!

  12. Whenever I see pitches like this Cash For Patriots program, I always take my mind back 35 years ago, to the very first day of the Economy class in my freshman year in college; the professor, upon entering the classroom, before muttering any word, he wrote on the chalkboard: TINSTAAFL (There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch). Lesson learned ever since.

  13. I’ve spent so money on these misleading sites to find out that they are not what they claimed to be, glad I decided to investigate and found your site, Thank you for saving this old lady $49. I won’t be so eager to jump on everything I see or read! Thank you again Kyle

  14. I fell for it before I searched the internet. Three hours later I called Agora and cancelled. Thanks for the info here. The best I can hope for as a taxpayer is the abolishment of the IRS. Now, there’s a real savings opportunity ?

  15. I have developed a keen immunity to anything that reads “make sure your speakers are on”; they’re all sales pitches of one type or another. The only words that are missing are “hurrry, hurrry, hurry, ladies and gentlemen, step right up for the opportunity of a lifetime” After completing my college education, I took a job in the Empire State Building, working for a self made millionaire, who told me to never get involved in any investment scheme unless I could afford to actually and completely lose a full year’s income and never look back; sage advice that has rung in my ears lo these many decades. “Caveat Emptor” trans.: let the buyer beware. Keep up the great work Kyle!

  16. Just wanted to tell you personally Kyle what a great website you have here, and thank you for taking the time and effort to inform folks about shady things like this. I, as well as almost everyone on the internet, get flooded with spam e-mails just like this on almost every day. To think that anyone, especially the government, is just going to start handing out free money to anyone is laughable! Unfortunately there are many people out there who are gullible and buy into things like this all the time. That’s how these guy’s get rich. I guess getting a job and working for a living is just not in the cards for them. Anyhow, thanks very much for your website and the for nformation you provide with regard to misleading or just outright scams so that more people won’t get hooked by these losers.

  17. Kyle, You are the man! How well you described such an elusive, yet real situation. A situation that came to mind with your description that dialed it in for me, are the dividends paid out to people who had eventually been attributed shares when MetLife demutualized. I think it was about the year 2000. My mother died in 1986, had a life insurance policy that paid, yet just last year I found unclaimed property in her name held in CA State Comptroller’s office. Of course this is not the same as the corporations payment of dividends due stockholder’s for realized profit. But I figured I’d share it with you anyway because it’s true that it is how I became familiar with the mere concept of profit sharing. Those of us unable to participate in the fundamental practices of investing or trading, are the ones most in need of understanding the significance and relevance of the subject for our own future well being, yet sadly fail to accept the responsibility to learn the language in order to understand a subject that still affects us whether we like it or not. Well Kyle, a writer I am not, but in the spirit of free money being found for nothing, the demutualization of MetLife (and Prudential, maybe others too), had created millions of dollars just waiting to be discovered, but I am way off topic. I started to comment for the appreciation I had for your blog. Thank You for the great job clarifying this subject. Sincerely, Jeannie Furey, Los Angeles, CA

  18. Kyle, thank you so much for your research! After the second, I’ll give you that info in a moment, I knew something was up!
