My father subscribed to the wsy on 7-16-02. He died on 7-24-02.
Upon arriving at his home on 7-25-02 I began the dauntless task of going through important papers etc. Found his credit card on 7-26-02 and called to cancel it. He had charges of 6100.00+ I spoke to a rep of the co who told me there was a 5,000.00 charge to the Wall Street Underground. My father has followed the market for years and is considered an expert. I asked the
credit card co for info on how to contact WSU for a refund. It would take a few weeks for them to provide it.
As I was cleaning out the house I came across faxes starting on 7-23-03. When I read the one from 7-24-02 and got to the Whores on Wall Street I began to get a little nervous.
At his funeral I told one of his friends about this and he had one of his friend serch for WSU on the internet and of course they found nothing but did find your ripoff site and gave me copies. I was able to take this to the bank and stop the 5,000.00 from being paid out
I started to call the numbers on the rip-off reports. Merriam Kansas was disconnected. Kansas City, KS was invalid and then I tried 1-800-215-6169 and got Jake Bradley. I played like I was interested in subscribing and got the Chicago address and the web address of The Wall Street Underground.TV which does not exist. I was told I could get back issues of the news letters to see Nick's past record and how good his advise was etc.
Afte more small talk Jake asked me if I wanted to subscribe and I calmly said no and that what I wanted was to report the WSU to the Arkansas and Connecticut AG's Consumer Protection Units and I hung up. I immediately got a call back that was a hang-up.
The faxes stopped on 7-30-02 but we did get the pager. If any- one wants it, it is yours.
I hope this helps others. I was lucky.
My father was 89 when he died. There were no other referrences to the WSU other than the faxes and an empty envelope from WSU. My father was an OB/GYN doctor. He had his 1st mal practice insurance policy from the 40's. His premium was 19.00. My how things have changed. The point of this bit of trivia is my Dad saved everything and kept meticulous records. He would have unsubscribed and wanted a refund like the others.
