The Green Millionaire

by admin on January 14, 2010

Here we go with another Donald Barrett Promotion,  this time a book written by Nigel Williams, this one is a pay $1.00 and we will bill you later for $29.95 every few months scam.  Nigel apparently found that he needs to travel the globe to combat the environmental issues we are faced with and discovered that you can get wealthy doing this.  Best of all he wants to give you this book “free”.

If you define free as $1.00 processing fee and a subscription to “The Green Millionaire eMagazine” for 29.95 every other month “After a 14 day trial period you will be billed the low price of $29.95 and every 60 days thereafter.”  There are all kinds of testimonials like “I now only have to work a few days a month and I have the lifestyle of a millionaire… it’s so simple anyone can do it”.

Apparently Nigel was very busy before his green revolution as his job entailed “i was a marketing guy who was able to sell products to people, cars, luggage, liquor, tires, and clothing. i could make you want things that you don’t really need.” Great now he can sell us a book we do not need.

Now if you notice I said a $1.00 processing fee for an eBook, now I am unsure about what this processing fee is except a way to get you setup for the subscription charges you are going to get hit for. When an eBook is truly free it costs nothing, you don’t give anything not even an email address.

Just another notice that you have to read the terms of service and not to trust anything that can make you rich that is shown when no normal TV programing is running.  I will try to find some more information on this eBook and program maybe I will use a visa gift card and get a copy of the book to read. I am sure it is filled with fun things to talk about.

I was kinda interested until I read the ‘Privacy’ policy. They share EVERYthing about you including: sites you visit while online, your IP address to their ‘affilliates’ (just in case THEY want to sell you something), and on and on and ON. You’re right..it’s not free!

This company and owner are nothing more than scam artists that I’ve seen before. After researching this too good to be true offer from TV I figured out who was selling it and immidiatly knew it wasnt anything for me or anybody else with more than 3 brain cells. I would highly suggest just researching green energy and going to your local library for the same information provided within this book (not to mention a whole lot more can be learned within the library about this subject than a scam artist will give you). Any positive reviews of this product or any reviews positive of anything sold by this man (aka scammist) will be nothing more than public information that can be attained for free anywhere in the US and any non 3-rd world country. Pathetic that people like him arent shot killed and hung up by their balls.

Its a huge scam!!! I get the book for free other than the $1 S@H and inside the package sent is the book ad a little piece of paper. On this paper, it tells you that ordering the book subscribed you to their EMagazine. And after a 14 day trial period you will be billed the LOW price of $89.95 after the 14 day trial period…………WHAT????? LOW????? i called customer service at 1-877-213-8238, spoke to a man named Carlos and had him kill my account. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOOK!!!

michelle July 23, 2010 at 8:51 am

I can not even get ahold of customer service so you are a step above me.

anita September 9, 2010 at 7:52 am

did they give you a hard time when trying to cancel and was this within the 14 day trial period?

Venny September 28, 2010 at 5:11 am

Unfortunately i did not go through the package contents and only realised the scam when I acccidently checked my bank account and saw the $89 transaction. I called the customer care and they were unwilling to refund citing that I did not call within the 14 days trial period. After lot of tough talk I was only able to get a refund of about $45.

JD June 16, 2010 at 2:36 pm

What i dont understand how can your guy’s dumbass get yourself into something with out reading and then go and complain. All the information is provided to you right there. If you wanna act like a middles school kid thats fine, But what you are complaining about is your stupidity. The company didn’t make you put the information(YOU DID) I think thats what you get for thinking and trying to take advantage of something being free. The only thing you got for free is a head ache

TechMedic June 27, 2010 at 10:32 pm

WOW!! Speaking of ‘dumbasses’.. before you start giving out wisdom and advice you should take a Middle School kids grammar class!

“thats what you get for thinking….” Hint, next time you offer a reply “YOU” need to do a lot of thinking… and then don’t offer it because the headache I have now is from trying to read ‘your-dumber-ass’ comments!

Read a book… any book – please. And shut-the-hell-up!

Rima August 9, 2010 at 1:40 pm

Igree with TechMedic regarding the “dumbasses” remark. However I wanted to address Green Millionaire. I saw the advert for this “book” running on planet green for several weeks before I went on line to do a bit of research before going to the Green Millionaire website. I’m glad I did. All of my feeling of skepticism were well founded. I do have to say, though, that I am very disapointed in planet green. I realize that commercial television is exactly that, commercial, but for some naive reason I expected that a station which claims to be so concerned about the environment should not be more selective about it’s advertisers.

rantrapper June 25, 2010 at 10:03 am

I CAN’T believe it. I knew this guy (Nigel Williams) quite well in the 1980s when he first came to the U.S.. He had NO credentials in advertising, except he was a con guy even then. He actually used pieces of MY graphic design portfolio, projects he NEVER worked on, to get jobs in Silicon Valley. And then I see this guy on TV this morning. Unreal. His die was cast probably in infancy. Boy, what karmic justice to see this clown again, ripping folks off. Pathalogical liar.

Becky September 16, 2010 at 2:31 pm

You. Are. A. Complete. Idiot.

I’ve read up on Nigel. He’s done great world famous projects in advertising. Apparently someone’s a little jealous of his success. Move on with your life. This is not even about him. It’s about the great material in the book. I got the trial paid for about 4 months now. I’m happy. You should work on your own happiness instead of trying to bring down this guy’s.

Moina Starquer June 8, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I think they are examples. This is such a good scam. You have to hand it to them. They are smarter than us or we are dum-dumber than bird crap. This is the way to go.
( NW: do I get more money if I write more like this?)

Elayna Thomason May 13, 2011 at 11:53 am

I do believe I somewhat recently ran into what apparently was the litlle wifey of the author at a do.
She was an old australian broad soaking it up and yukking it up about the scam. Claimed to have jacket cover art credit for using somebody else’s art.
They have a spread in Bel Air (not too green there)that they sell back and forth between themselves to avoid some
collection action. She thought herself a hoot

Istra Bershevsky February 20, 2012 at 9:00 am

I met her husband, won’t say where. He said she had come up the hard way. That she was a nekkid aussie cage dancer in Mills Valley, I think, and then ran a cleaning team. This sounds sort of green, I don’t know what a cage dancer is. Guess at a cleaning team’s meaning. Gone to guess at “nekkid”, too. So what? She lives here now and we are all special because of that. You be green with envy. Phhht!

I too knew this guy in the 80s and can completely vouch for his integrity and creativity. I have constant problems with reputable companies when I am unsatisfied or want a refund. Their job is to keep the money that people have paid them. You obviously found something about it that you liked or were just curious to see if you could cause a problem for the man you still resent for “stealing” your portfolio. I witnessed him coming up with advertising ideas. He was always original and creative which explains why he had a hugely successful career in advertising. Not only that, but he is a very generous person. Don’t hate, congratulate :))

Jim July 15, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Well, at the time I ordered, they were “offering” a full year subscription for $89.95. Which I found out today, 16 days later, when this $89.95 charge caused my checking account to be overdrawn.

My bank, after looking at the website, said that its all there for me to have read, and that they may not be able to help me get a refund.

I’m on my third call to Green Millionaire, the first two having been disconnected after I demanded to speak with a supervisor. Beware ALL!!

Venny September 28, 2010 at 5:15 am

I managed to get a $45 refund after a month when i realised the charge looking at the bank account.

leronimo July 16, 2010 at 2:39 pm

i got screwed by this dirtbag 2

Rule Number 837: If you have to ask yourself or search online to see if something is a scam – it is.

Ms Mad July 26, 2010 at 3:04 pm

I too had this happen. It should not be that hard to buy a book. I did not by the book to go into some sort of business. I thought the book was for for real with useful tips , and no strings . I did not ask to be part of some14 day trial and I have purchased may other book’s and not have any strings attached, you readers here have sceen the complaints so who knew. These people are stealing from us and they should not be allowed to get away with it and a system in place to prevent this slight of hands trick along with full payback and long jail time. I am not thinking any good dreams or thought’s about this Company but I hope they all come true.

Pamela July 26, 2010 at 9:23 pm

I just saw the commercial for Free Green Wealth on television…I really hate commercials, but went online to see what this new info king is hyping. Whenever I see something that is supposed to be great for me, for free-I become suspicious and want to know why you want to give me something. Now I know.

Thank you all, or the well read posts, for your information and the warning. I cannot afford to have any money stolen or be charged for something without foreknowledge.

Thanks again!! and keep posting the truth.

KeithTax July 26, 2010 at 9:59 pm

The government no longer seems to care if consumers are ripped off. Because of this, the scam artists run free and wild on TV, even during prime time. Never give your credit card info for a FREEEE!!! product. Free is free. No credit card required.

Rima August 9, 2010 at 1:44 pm

The government can’t be everywhere. People complain that the government is too big and too “big brother” and then want them to take care of everything for them. Keith is right about one important thing- never pay for anything that is supposedly free. Free is free!

Jodi August 14, 2010 at 1:42 pm

I sympathize for all of you that feel that you’ve been scammed, but keep in mind that you really must do your own research in order to not fall into a “subscription” or “continuity” program. This is just good sense. I went to the website, checked out the Customer Care, Privacy and Terms and Conditions links and then googled the site/product. The website clearly states that along with the book you will get a free trial of the emagazine. Once you click on the terms and conditions you find out just how “free” this is. Another indicator that this was possibly a scam was the fact the the shipping and handling fee for the “free” book is not listed anyhwere on the site. Not in the terms and conditions or anywhere on the first page of the site. There was no way I was going to enter my personal information just to find out what that cost was. Again, I really to feel bad that so many people have had such a bad experience – this type of “advertising” should not be allowed, but if you had done your due diligence, (and I’m sure you will in the future) this would not have happened. (And yes, I agree with each and every one of you that this guy is scum!!!!)

Debbie September 14, 2010 at 12:00 pm

This dirtbag got me too…It’s still pending in my account and was told they couldn’t do anything about the $89.95 till tomorrow when it posts then I can come down and dispute it. Your darn right I am. This jerk preys on people that just want to do right for the planet…He should be hung

nancy August 26, 2010 at 11:56 pm

this dirtball,this underhanded horse thief scheduled to tap, no let me refrase that ,he is going to rape me tomorrow friday for the 89.95 it is a very hard hit for me it means late on my rent ,my phone bill and depressed for the next 3 months just trying to keep from drowning.Is there any way to stop this worm??

anita September 9, 2010 at 7:51 am

does anyone know how you cancel your subscription

Venny September 28, 2010 at 5:17 am

call customer care number given on their website.

Ken September 18, 2010 at 10:33 am

I ordered book and the day it came I canceled my subscription. Received an e-mail acknowledgment and never had another. charge. I guess I was just lucky.

C. September 28, 2010 at 8:04 am

I called and cancelled the day I got the book, and the emails quit coming for a couple of weeks. Then, all of a sudden the emails started coming again and I was still charged the $89.95 and I cannot get the money back. They said it was because I didn’t return the book. Well, the book doesn’t tell you anything so for something being green, they sure killed a lot of trees! What a dirtbag!

Paula October 3, 2010 at 12:21 am

Okay to give you all an FYI, anything that is being promoted by Donald Barrett is a scam. There is already a FTC outcome on this guy for 54 million dollars.
The FTC case on both Barrett and Maihos attached the deeds on their mansions in Beverly, MA, but has not taken the properties.
Barrett, managed to sign the deed (which was in his and his wife’s name), over to his soon to be X wife, after the FTC attachment. I understand that our judicial system works slow in the USA, but I think that it is insane that Donald Barrett be allowed to be anywhere but a jail.
Just a little history lesson for all.
Donald Barrett was making pizza for a living, up until 2002, then he hooked up with Kevin Trudeau (who already did time in Federal Prison for credit card scams for selling crap) and Maihos (a former convicted drug dealer, who did time in FL) and the three created a business involving selling crap and charging credit cards on people that ordered the bogus stuff they sold and not allowing people to cancel their subscriptions.
That was brought to court and now the trio have parted their ways, but they are all scam artists. Kevin Trudeau is in CA, Donald Barrett is in Plymouth, MA now talking about Green Millionaire and Maihos is now touting some finance scam.
Barrett’s mansion is so not GREEN it is laughable to see his monkey face touting this book.
My suggestion is to contact the FTC about this scam, so that another case can be started and maybe, just maybe the Barrett/Maihos/Trudeau Trio can park their butts in jail, where they all belong.

Lori Haldeman-Mossholder November 2, 2010 at 5:30 pm

They got me too. I didn’t notice the charges and agreed to non other than the $1. and have been charged since May. I recieved no e-mags I got nothing.

Denise Valdez November 9, 2010 at 8:39 pm

How do I get stop them from charging me. Where do I call them.

Jon Smith December 5, 2010 at 5:39 pm

OK so I see it on tv. It look good….I just survived cancer-5 brain tumors, and a double hip replacement, and failing bone marrow….so im bored and stuck at home. Im into the enviroment and saving money. NOT GETTING RIPPED OFF! That little SH** im gonna F**King kick his A**! HOW DARE HE STEAL FROM ME! I dont make that much! under $13,000 a year after taxes-if its been a good year. Im calling my State Attorney General! F this guy!

David B April 17, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Why do you idiots keep saying Nigel ripped you off? He wrote the book and was the spokesperson on television. The company Syndero was the one who tried to sell it off as free. Not the author. Syndero LLC. wrote the tv script and Nigel simply was just the TV talent.

Blame Syndero LLC.
SYNDERO the company took your money.
They didn’t bother helping you cancel or refund through their “customer care.”

DLH May 29, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Wow I can’t believe my eyes here………this is now 2012 and most of these comments in this book Greenmillionaire are 2yrs old with the exeption of one that date’s in 2011 and most of these comments are wild and claiming that Nigel J Williams author is a complete total scam here and I’m incline to believe it because there a statement in this book about getting free gas for our cars and so far I hav’nt found that entry yet here online. So I might as well join the other’s here on this scenario as there’s no proof of free gas for cars. Besides the auto industry is contemplating on going electric battery operated cars. So actually I’m glad in a way that I don’t have to pay for the $30.00 per/mo thing for their monthly mags as I never did order any. So much for that.

Mela Schnoordmann June 7, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Well their house on Casiano in BA aint tow badd. The little wiffe is hard to take as she don’t tell the same story right all the time. Who cares the drinks was noty bad and the food was from the store. What was a caged dancert anyways?
