The Aussie Method – Avoid this Scam

We recently did a review of the Brit Method, a system that promises to make you hundreds of thousands of pounds per month at no cost.

We revealed that system was a scam and warned you to stay away from it.

So the other day when we received an e-mail about something called the Aussie Method, we were keen to check out what it was all about.

Sadly our suspicious that this is a close relation to the Brit Method were confirmed and we would make the same comments as we did about that system – stay away from the Aussie Method, it reeks of a scam.

Here we go through things and look at the rather glaring warning signs.


Hmm, haven’t I seen this before somewhere?

The e-mail itself leaves quite a lot to be desired. 

Instead of addressing it to me or a generic “Dear Investor,” it starts “Hi {first name}.” Not a great start.

Then I am told that a guy called Louis apparently made $764,050 from the system.

So let’s say you suspended your disbelief and clicked through to the Aussie Method in search of untold riches. What would you find? 

Well the first thing you notice when you click on the Aussie Method website is it looks exactly like the Brit Method. Same layout, same colour scheme – and even the same bloke in the top right hand corner.

Except this time he isn’t called Jason Taylor – he’s called Jake Pertu!

Maybe that’s meant to be more of an Aussie-sounding name than Jason Taylor, I don’t know.

And these aren’t the only two versions of this system – before that there was the Canuck Method, with the same guy again but that time he was called Jake Mason.

For some reason they seem to like the guy’s name to start with a J…

Anyway, the picture of the guy is actually just a stock image that you can purchase from a picture site and it features across the internet on everything from “Kelly Clarkson’s unborn child” to “Top 10 grocery shopping mistakes,” and the “Lucky Rich Kid Method,”   plus a bunch of other sites that have nothing to do with the Aussie Method.


Implausible Sales Claims

Sometimes we see horse racing or football betting systems that claim to make thousands of pounds per month and it immediately sets alarm bells ringing if the results seem too good to be true.

So when you receive an e-mail that claims to make you “20 years wages in 29 days,” you would be foolish not to be very suspicious.

Then when you click through to the Aussie Method, you are greeted with video messages (which you can’t pause or stop – argh!) from people claiming to have made $500,000 in a month from using the system.

Now if you haven’t already dismissed it as a scam before now, you certainly should be upon seeing these ridiculous claims.

Firstly, the videos are from paid actors from the contracting website

Secondly, if these people were really making half a million dollars per month, why on earth are they making videos in cheap-looking sets instead of partying on their yachts in the Caribbean?

In fact, maybe it would be a bit more believable if they did have videos of people in yachts or driving their new Ferraris rather than sitting in rather basic accommodation.

And then let’s just think – half a million dollars per month, that would be 6 million dollars per year.

Do you think if people were really making six million dollars per year through an internet system, it might have been on the news or lots of people would be talking about it?

The simple lesson is that if something seems too good to be true, it almost certainly is. With this one, you don’t need to be a genius to see this is too outlandishly good to be true.


Fake Testimonials

An obvious way to try and make yourself look legit is to have lots of success stories and testimonials from people apparently testifying to the quality of your system.

However, it doesn’t take a great deal of interrogating to see that these testimonials are not genuine.

Firstly, we have the success stories.

These are pretty lame, let’s face it. Just some pictures of text messages on an iphone. Anyone could set up some text messages saying a system is good – not the toughest thing in the world.

The same thing with the Twitter and Facebook posts below. What’s interesting is that the posts are all weirdly one minute apart – could that just be a coincidence?

But then we have the “Live Third Party Verified Results.”

Now these results, if they were real, could actually be meaningful.

However, we are not told what the “Third Party” site is – nor can you click through to it!

So how are we to know if these are results are real or verify them for ourselves? Well sadly we can’t, which rather defeats the purpose of having so-called “verified” results.


How it Claims to make you Money

In the same way as the Brit Method, the Aussie Method promises to make you money through Binary Options trading. 

The system is supposedly fully automated software for trading such options, so you just have to switch it on and “hey presto” you will be making $800 – $1,000 daily.

It doesn’t explain how exactly the software works and how they came up with a system that makes this much money, but hey, who are we to question?

Although it says the system doesn’t cost anything, in order to use it you will need to deposit money into accounts with Binary Options brokers and then trade with that money.

The people who make the Aussie Method will then cream off commissions from the money you have deposited to these brokers – and you will then be inundated with phone calls from the brokers encouraging you to trade more. That is perhaps more annoying than the system itself.

Anyway, you are highly unlikely to make $800 – $1,000 daily from this. In fact you will probably lose money and possibly quite a lot.

There are quite a few scams involving binary options trading at the moment. It seems that this little-understood form of trading is ripe for wheeling people in to scams and the like.

Our final advice is to keep your money in your wallet and avoid this like the plague. 

We just wait to see what the next version will be – the Kiwi Method? The French Method? The Turkish method?

Who knows…but perhaps they will have another actor with a name beginning with J.
