The Altucher Report, Scam or Worth The Money? – Honest Review

The Altucher Report Review


The Altucher Report ReviewSo I’ve been seeing ads for “The Altucher Report” all over social media recently and they have finally got my attention. I decided to click on one and take a look into it all to see if its legit. They claim that this report is a hidden gem in the world of cryptocurrency and basically they are luring people in with the hopes and dreams of making it rich in the cryptocurrency space. Many of the ads I’ve seen claim that “the next bitcoin is coming” and that you are going to be able to strike it rich.

But is this all it claims to be? Or is The Altucher Report a scam in one way or another. The many ads are what makes most people suspicious of it all including myself. If you are suspicious yet curious then you are going to want to read this. In this review I’ll be going over what exactly The Altucher Report is, why there are so many somewhat scammy advertisements for it and more.

The Altucher Report ReviewThe Altucher Report

With the many probable scams circulating online in the crypto industry, like BitconnectX & LendConnect, you can never be too careful with crypto related products.

The Altucher Report is often very over-hyped from what I have seen online so many people probably are unaware of what it actually is. The Altucher Report is not some system that makes you money in cryptocurrencies, its not some robust program that will teach you all there is to know… what it is, is exactly what it sounds like. Its a report.

The Altucher Report is basically a newsletter. Its a newsletter that you can subscribe for on a yearly basis and that you will receive monthly. Along with this main product, you will also get access to some of Mr Altucher’s books, a 6-video masterclass, and some other things, all of which I’ll go over shortly.

First however I think its important to touch upon who James Altucher is and whether or not you should listen to him.

The Man Behind It All

James Altucher is not afraid to brag all about how great he is and how much he has accomplished. He has worked on Wallstreet for over 20 years, has managed hedge funds, and worked as a private investor for quite some time. He has made a lot of money, no doubt about it, however he isn’t great all the time. One thing that he fails to mention is all the money he lost in the .com boom.

In his earlier days he was involved much more in the actual industry, but nowadays he is involved more in the information industry where he seems to make a ton of money selling his many newsletter type products which include: Altucher’s Crypto Trader, Altucher’s Alliance, Altucher’s Secret Income, Altucher’s Top 1% Advisory, Altucher’s Top 1% Market Cap, and Altucher’s Daily Trade.

From what I have read online there aren’t many people that like this guy to much and respect what he does. Many label him as a slimy con man who is just trying to make a quick buck by providing information that isn’t that great and at sometimes is destructive. I was just going through a bunch of forums and reading comments by random people on different sites and honestly, this is enough to make me stay away. I know there are complaints about everyone and everything but this is an entirely other level. Complaint after complaint after complaint… the public opinion is not good.

What The Altucher Report Provides

As I said, the core of this report is the monthly newsletter. However there a few other things that you get. These include…

  • 1 Year subscription of The Altucher Report (12 total, 1 per month)
  • Email updates weekly
  • Email alerts if there is a good time to sell or buy
  • Book called Cryptocurrencies 101: How to Make a Fortune from Digital Currencies
  • 6 video series on cryptocurrencies

Then along with this there are also bonuses that are offered right now. I’m not sure if these will continue to be offered but here they are…

  • The 48X Back-Door Way to the Cryptocurrency Market
  • Make 1,000% from the Seven Biggest Money-Making Trends in America
  • The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth
  • Private access to our members-only website
  • Free Unadvertised Bonus: You’ll also start receiving FREE daily e-letters. First, Altucher Confidential and The 5 Minute Forecast


The Price

The cost of for a year subscription of The Altucher Report is normally $99 (so they say) but of course they are really nice and are going to give it to you for just $49. Now I didn’t actually buy into this so I’m not sure how the upsells work, but judging from reading about his many others subscription products there is bound to be some very expensive upsells that probably cost around $2k or so.

The upsells are probably for some “secret” newsletter that you can buy on top of the one you just bought.

If anyone has bought into this and knows what the upsells are and how much they cost I would appreciate if you leave a comment below this post.

Something Else Worth Knowing

Choose Yourself Financial (at chooseyourselffinancial.com) is the company that sells this Altucher Report and all of his other newsletters. The parent company of this place is Agora Financial, which I think is worth mentioning because they have a pretty horrible reputation.

If you look up what people are saying about them on sites like the Better Business Bureau you will find all sorts of complaints. The complaints I came across mostly consist of people claiming they have lost lots of money from bad financial advice that was provided and also complaints about misleading and “scammy” marketing techniques used that made people buy into things they really didn’t know they were buying into.

Overall this company needs to get its act together because the view the public has of it is extremely poor and this is something to be aware of.

Conclusion on The Altucher Report – Worth The Money or Not?

As I said, I haven’t actually bought the report. Also I don’t plan on it. It just seems to not be worth it based on reviews I have read about his other similar products. It seems this guy is too much into the business of making money selling this stuff and not as focused on providing quality information that helps people financially. He has way too much going on and I don’t see how he can even keep up with all the different products he is providing information for. Just with this product alone there are a bunch of bonuses he is giving out.

My question is how can he possibly provide all this information himself? He is just one man. My conclusion on this is that his products seem to be quantity over quality and the information provided doesn’t seem to be anything special. I’m not telling you whether or not to buy it, I’m just saying that I’m not buying it.

If you are considering buying into this then I suggest you do some more research first.

Why Are There So Many People Promoting This?

One more thing. You may be wondering well why are there so many people promoting this product if it might not be that good. The answer is simple. Mr Altucher has a small army of affiliates who are making money every time they get someone to buy into this. Plain and simple. Many of them have probably never bought the product themselves.

Anyhow… If you have any comments, questions, or concerns leave them down in the comment section and I’ll get back to you soon 🙂

  1. The Altucher report, James Altucher it’s all a scam don’t do it don’t spend your money. This man sends you 20 emails a day and not only from himself from affiliations with him that you did not give permission to get emails from. And all he does is repeat himself and in a messages he tells you I know it sounds like I’m repeating myself but it’s very important that I keep saying these things so you understand how it works. No it’s very important that you stop ripping me off. And then he sends the email saying well if you spend $2,000 I’ll give you all the secrets and tell you exactly what cryptocurrency to invest in mean while that’s what I thought I was doing the first time when I first ordered his book and information and audio book which I never received. Stay as far away from him as possible. And yes stop the payment with your credit card I’m about to do the same, your gonna see this guys on the news soon and not in a good way. He seems like a nice enough guy but he’s ripping people off.

  2. Hi Kyle, thought I’d provide my experience with the Altucher Report. Like so many others, I had been hearing about cryptos and wanted to learn more about it. The small book that came with the initial membership was actually a pretty good primer on the topic. It simply and clearly defined blockchain technology in addition to cryptocurrencies, and how they are related. It also emphasized the rampant presence of crypto scams and gave advice on how to be minimize the large risk in this space. After reading it, I went to more traditional places to see what they were saying about cryptos and blockchain, and found that James’ information had been pretty reasonable. Please note that I subscribed because I wanted to “learn more,” not get rich in a weekend! People need to take some responsibility for themselves when they invest money based on advice from these types of sources. Yep, after I subscribed, I started receiving a million emails, including from Algora, who I did not find to be credible, so I unsubscribed from those emails. And people, please, NEVER sign up for auto-renewal on these types of services. I still haven’t invested in this area, as I am still learning, but I probably will, with some discretionary money that I can afford to lose. And if it does well, it will have all started with the Altucher Report.

  3. I found this to be the same . I bought this newsletter and it is a joke. The guy is a big scammer and I dont understand why so many suckers follow him!

  4. I just paid $79 for a one year subscription with all of these bonus reads to find out how to ‘hustle’ and retire. Well, first of all, you would have to create at least 10 side hustles according to his ebook to find out ‘what sticks.’ Who has time to create 10 side hustles and still work full time? I have read most of his articles and newsletters only to walk away and say, ‘how did this profit me?”
    The whole point of the subscription is to find out how you can retire, make great money and do something for yourself.
    I wasted a lot of money for absolutely nothing.
    I am better off to work on my own side hustle and just see how things work out. I would never recommend subscribing to his newsletter. He trys to upsell you anyway right after you subscribe…for really big bucks too!
    He’s a great HUSTLER!!!!

  5. Hey Kyle, thanks for your article and bringing me back to earth. Time and again we all hear it: “If it sounds too good to be true…”

    Besides my 401k I have little-to-no knowledge on investing. Thank God for that “still small voice” that resides in our guts. All these emails (tons of them!) from Agora Financial have “sucked me in” the and time again – meaning…I’ve taken way too much time to read a few of them. And yes – they ARE quite convincing. But the bottom line is – that still small voice led me to do a little research – which led me to your blog. You pretty much confirmed what I’m feeling. Two months ago I renewed my $49 annual subscription to the Oxford Communique and once I did – I started getting inundated with all these other emails…I wonder if that’s another lesson in disguise (lol!) – Thanks again.


  6. you motherfucker, you just stole 79.00 dollars from my account, i had cancelled you 8 months ago . i expect a full refund immediately, asshole.

  7. Hey Kyle,

    I think this is a pretty fair review. I will admit that I have actually been subscribed to The Altucher Report for 4 or 5 years. It used to be full of good stock tips but now it’s full of spam (the 1 minute videos that end up be 20) and affiliate messages. It’s only been costing me $40/year but the 2 or 3 stock tips I can manage to find in the garbage do give me at least a 10x ROI. I find his books to be quite repetitive as well, but I am liking Side Hustle bible since it is mainly interviews with successful individuals. I’ll probably keep the service for a little while longer since you get all the books for free. Could always sell those for more than the $40. It makes me feel better making money off a scammer.


  8. Hi,

    In sales we are thought to create a time deadline. The 15 min closure was key for me. It stops you fro checking things out.
