Is Profit ly A Scam?

Timothy Sykes Stock ScamYesterday, I posted a review of If you are unfamiliar with, then please read the post that contains information on how I gamed the trade verification system with the intention of becoming the worlds worst trader. In a very short period of time, I was able to create fake account statements and then upload the statements into that showed that I had lost $650,000,000. This loss officially crowned me as the worst “verified” trader on Since everyone on is trying to be the most impressive trader, achieving my goal was relatively easy.

However the real goal was not to show that I was the worlds worst “100% verified” trader on The goal was to show that anyone, in only a few minutes could creatively game the verification system. And in addition, expose for what it really and truly is…a marketing platform to sell useless membership subscriptions and educational DVD’s to naive investors.

One Day After My Post

Today, I received a clever email from a high school kid in upstate New York. He prefers to go by the name Young Jeezy. I have no idea what a Jeezy actually is. Anyway, he also notified me that he had also easily gamed the system with the sole purpose of showing himself as a millionaire trader. His motivation was to show “big money” trading, and that the trade results would be used as link bait for affiliate marketing. The idea was that if a high school kid could become a trading millionaire buy purchasing products, then anyone could. The hustle was to use his story as link bait that people would click on, and then once clicked on, a tracking cookie would activate and any purchases made a would earn him a commission of sales.

Executing The Scam

Young Jeezy then explained to me how he created his millionaire trader persona, complete with fake trades showing massive profits…all he did was create demo accounts with the intention of Massive Fake Profitly Profitsuploading fake trades into How? Create TWO demo accounts at any of the 30+ brokers listed on Once the dual accounts were created, next you buy 10,000 shares of a popular stock in demo account A, and then sell 10,000 shares in demo account B. The net effect is that one of the two accounts will always show a winner. Everyday, simply upload into only the results from the demo account with the winning trade. After a short period of time, you can now show a equity curve that looks fantastic. Everyone once in awhile, he explained that he would pepper in a losing trade to make it look believable.

Next Create Webpages and Video Testamonials

After he created the “verified” track record, he then created several websites touting his success. He also created several You Tube video testimonials. Young Jeezy refused to give me the web addresses and video testimonials, but he did send me a long list of websites of others pulling the same hustle, and others that had also created fake video testimonials. Example below:

If you watch this video, its pretty laughable. Of course, I don’t expect you to believe me, simply go to You Tube and search the names of gurus on that are selling DVD’s and advisories. Also, the internet is lliterallyclogged up with people attempting to earn a quick buck with this exact same testimonial hustle.

Coming Clean

I asked Young Jeezy why he decided to contact me and tell me about the scam. He explained that initially he was earning about $1500 a month for several straight months but slowly the amount tricked down to nearly nothing. The typical life cycle of a newsletter is only 30 days, and the target might purchase an educational DVD. But nobody would subscribe for more than 60 days. Sometimes they would purchase a Tim Sykes subscription, then another guru, then another, but in the end they would end of cancelling.

In addition to the income drying up, friends and family became aware of the web videos and became concerned that he was committing fraud. He thought about using a fake name and paying for fake reviews from professional reviewers on fiverr. But in the end, he decided to go back to college and finish his education.

Well that’s it for today. Thanks for reading. I understand that when Tim Sykes and the rest of the gurus and affiliate marketers read this post and all of its raw negativity, they will how with anger and attack me. Truthfully, it is easier to just keep my mouth shut and let stupid people just keep being stupid, but just a little part of me say’s “fuck it”. Please leave your comments below. Speak freely, speak liberally.

Is there a review of Tim Sykes and his millionaire challenge in particular? This would also be very interesting. If not, what do you think about his services? I think if is fake then he has no validation = no credibility.

Tim Sykes is 1000% a fraud. I don’t know why this site hasn’t been more aggressive in exposing him.

thank you for this article!

Having read a great deal of the comments here and other reviews I have only one significant thing to add. There’s a great deal of phenomenal, wealthy traders I’ve studied, etc. Yes, the successful ones are in the minority and what does that do? It upsets the majority who — COMPLAIN and find FAULT. There is a path and it comes from work. Not insane, ‘kill yourself’ work — just work. There is a strategy and system which comes from work. I’m positive the wealthy traders pass by these comments and smile. The spoils go to the persistent, hungry FEW.… Read more »

In my experience people who leave cryptic message to make them sound smart or that they have some secret knowledge usually aren’t and don’t.


Who can confirm that he was deceived by his DVDs? With real evidence related Scam! From someone who just bought them 😐 …many with opinions, but nothing conclusive…

lol, I knew it was all bullshit … IS A SCAM , u want a REAL , NO BULSHIT , BAREBONES , HONEST 2 GOD PENNYSTOCK NEWSLETTER ? then I’d suggest that you give FALCONSTOCKS.COM a try . they are honest , trustworthy & you don’t have 2 worry about them ripping u pff .


Did you ever get a hold of Paul Scolardi as mentioned in a September 2015 post? I’m curious to know your thoughts after the meeting/discussion.


This is a big eye opener to me, had no idea how easy it was to upload trades to their site.


Tried it myself, definitely a scam. All their buying and stock notifications are just so bad to the point, it doesn’t even make sense. I lost more money following their stock tips.


As much as i like your site, but the mentors you approve of don’t show real results done by an authentic, third party. They’re showing screenshots and data listed on their own sites, which can be designed by anyone.
