Will Stock Picks
Will Karamon of Will Stock Picks, runs a live day trading room, where he proclaims to have turned $4k into $1.4 million in only 3 years. Of course, when asked to provide even the smallest morsel of proof, none can be provided. The live trading room is a complete joke, where Will dupes subscribers into believing that his Sure Trader demo account is a real account. We have seen this scam many times before. Yet another day trading wannabe looking to scam the newbies, the naive, and the financially ignorant. A waste of time. Avoid.

Thanks for reading today’s review of Will Stock Picks and Trader Society?
What is Will Stock Picks and Trader Society? WillStockPicks.com and TradersSociety.com is a day trading room and day trading education company founded by Will Karaman.
The chat room service costs $47 per month and gives a person the wonderful opportunity to watch what looks like a 17 year old kid trade on a Sure Trader simulator. For a monthly fee of $97, you get the chat room and the additional feature of being able to privately chat with Will Karaman.
Thus far, TradingSchools.Org has gotten 11 requests to review this day trading chat room. 10 requests trigger an automatic review.
A quick review of the archive.org and domain research tools reveals that the website came online during the summer of 2015.
It appears that the main form of advertising and audience marketing is through a nearly non stop stream of boastful trading on StockTwits and Twitter.
The Amazing Will Karaman
Will Karamon of WillStockPicks.com and TradersSociety.com claims that he turned his $4k stock trading account into $1,400,000 in only four years. Oh, and he wants to be your mentor for free! As per the StockTwits graphic included below…
During the month of May, a TradingSchools.Org reader sent over the password for the live trading room, in which he had one week remaining of the one month membership.
During the visit inside of the live trading room, it appeared to be nothing more than a Sure Trader simulator, where Will Karamon would espouse all of his worldly wisdom to the eager audience.
At no time were any live trades accurately displayed, nor was a trading DOM present, nor is there an official track record of trades. However, Will is quick to proclaim on a daily basis that he was able to yet again pull massive profits out of the stock market. The following graphic is from Profit.ly, where Will posts a supposed track record claiming that he turned his $80,000 into $136,000 in only three months.
Of course, Trading Schools has already written about Profit.ly in the past. The results posted in Profit.ly are a scam infested cesspool of fake trading results.
Contacting Will Karamon
On multiple occasions we contacted Will Karamon of WillStockPicks.com and requested verification of his supposed “I turned $4k into $1,400,000 in only 3 years”, but of course, Will Karamon can supply nothing to substantiate his claims of trading success.
We also tried to verify 1st quarter 2016, supposed profit of $56k, but of course, Will Karamon attempted to remain as muted as a fart in Church.
Wrapping Things Up
I attempted to keep this review as short as possible. A total of 11 individuals requested that I review WillStockTrades.com (10 triggers a review), and I kept my word and got this done. This kid, Will Karamon is a trading scammer that cannot provide even one morsel of evidence that he has ever turned a profit trading the stock market. Yet another punk kid trolling social media, looking for a few suckers to pay him for stock trading advice. Avoid.
Thank for reading. User comments are optional.
This guy has been exposed repeatedly.
This thief is robbing people of their hard earned money. Gladly, I refrain from joining any group that is paid but just letting people know – Can’t wait for this scum to be nabbed by the authorities.

And it was not over this incident:
An obvious fraud, not even good at that!! Report this clown to the SEC.
Spammer and Twitter polluter.
Report to Twitter, shut him down
probably frontrunning his own recommendations…
Beware: Pretends that he offers a successfull signal service and a mentor program. Both don’t exist. Doesn’t react to emails. Takes subscribers fees without turning them back. Possibly frontrunning his recommendations on Penny stocks. Complete fraud.
To all who are considering paying this fraudster for his mentorship: Have a look at my twitter feed @mishtix888 to see how #WilliamConman speaks to paying members who ask him to verify that his trades are real #papertrading #havealltheinfo #makeupyourownmind These are all his own words, not mine
Hey Emmett, I would like to clear up this miss information, please get back t me so we can resolve this:
This is a pretty harsh review. I’ve been trading with Will for four months- each month turning a profit. He calls out his plays on a mic and tells you what he thinks of them as he is trading them. I’ve watched him successfully trade & really don’t care if he is in fact making the trades or not since a majority of them are winning picks. Most importantly, he owns when he makes bad plays and will break down what he did wrong/ or what he did right.
Wrote a positive review wonder why it is not being posted.
This review is so far from reality it is comical. No idea where this review is coming from and I hope more people speak out against it.
I want to start with saying, I am yet to be a subscriber. Why? Because I am still under the free trial period. This review obviously got under my skin, which is why I am taking the time to comment on my experience.
So far I have followed the text alerts, sold when he said to sell, bought when he said to buy. I took the small losses and enjoyed the big gains. I am currently up $6000 from the $MGT, $NVCN, $GALE and $BSPM alerts and watchlist price points. I would be up more had I followed his advice to get out of $EBIO.
Personally I was skeptical at first, who isn’t?
I ran across his daily picks being retweeted on StockTwits, I thought exactly what you all are thinking. Here’s a kid pumping stocks to improve his position. (According to this review, for a simulator account) So I did some more digging and thought I’ll wait it out. I watched quite a few opportunities materialize, just like he alerted they would, but never acted. After about a week I figured he has proven to be right why not give it a shot with a couple small trades. I have been up since.
I have a full time job, I have seen the chat room, usually have it minimized and bring it up thoughout the day. The text are really key if you’re like me and me and make a handful of trades a day. Get the text, wait for support at the price points given, buy, and sell when the text rolls through that Will has sold.
I will say, his chat is cropped, I’ll give you that… Arguably, why shouldn’t it be? He’s doing live free chats in a lot of cases, why risk your PFS account number on SureTrader getting hacked? Im guessing you didn’t check his YouTube channel to see actual trades? That would have been too easy.
It would be a hell of a lot of effort and time spent to fake this. Months of “lucky” trades, hours a day at a computer, live chatting, showing a simulated account with simulated trades. Texting out the simulated units and prices sold… All the while watching screen shots of text replies from the money people listening to his advice are making? Come on. Really?
Let’s play pretend. Let me paint this fictitious picture for ya…
Say 100 people are in his chats a day, each one of them pays $47 a month. Now let’s also not forget his watchlist is usually retweeted across a lot of social channels…. For Free. So we’re talking $4700 and assuming just chat and alerts….Will is not making much in this scenario, but hey, he is young right? 8 -10 hour days clicking away on a simulator, talking in a mic, tweets, texts, video recaps, watch lists and emails. For what? $25-$30 an hour?
Ok, ok, ok…..Even with this extreme hypothetical assumption we just made up…..Again given the advice and alerts I have seen thus far….You are still going as far as to say he isn’t taking the money he is making from scamming people, not following his own advice, and not making more money? Right? It makes no sense.
Try the free trial, dig into the alerts, review the watchlist, check out the chat, watch the YouTube video breakdowns. Then…….ready for this…….MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION!
If you’re sitting here going….Wait what?!! Why? I want a bogus review to make the decision for me! I shouldn’t have to put in the time and the effort!
Than please don’t. Just move on. Float the $1000 you have in your Robinhood account, buy $RH sit on it and hope for a $WSM buyout. Day trading is not for you.
Thanks for taking the time to write about your experience. My reviews are just my opinion. Even Star Wars got poor initial reviews.
If you find value, that’s great. I personally would like to see the kid trading with a real account, or at least a micro account where we can accurately display % wins and losses.
This “Will” has more websites that I am digging up. This isn’t his first go-around in this game.
Regardless, I respect your opinion and hope he keeps feeding you great picks.
Why do you keep saying it’s a simulator. Sure trader simulators start with TR in the account name. His account starts with PFS. His account number is PFS.16365 if you’re wondering.
You can also see the same account number in his youtube videos. So how much research are you really doing on these reviews.
I don’t trade with Will because I don’t like the gap ideas. It’s more for swing trading. I like day trading. I also don’t like his attitude towards other traders but I understand that comes with immaturity at a young age.
I’m looking forward to hearing from Emmett when he receives your brokerage statements with the $6,000 profit.
Still in trial and up $6K. Reminds me of another post of someone saying they were making tons of money and then a few days later post he lost it all.
I tell you want after being in his trading room for a few months you should have made a small fortune. I challenge you to show those brokerage statement at that time. I think I will not hold my breath.
I was thinking about joining Will Stock Picks how did it go?
4.7k a month is still much better than the supposed starting college grad salary. There are 5000 twit followers so the paid number of subscribers could be even higher. Have fun at Amy Sangster’s IP Ball 2016 exchanging stories of making millions in 2 years.
Are you still a subsriber?
at his age he should be chasing girls and experimenting with recreational drugs,
not get involved in trading/investments… trading is for adults yet almost all fail anyways. these reviews prove it!
Tim Sykes ushered in this generation of “Twitter traders”.
Not sure where to post this so I will post here. Is it just me and my computer or is there something wrong with this site. First, it is ridiculously slow and second I keep getting old pages to come up like there is a cache issue.
No, it happened/happens to me too. It’s very slow sometimes (don’t know why), and for the past week or so the “Recent Comments” on the home page shows comments from months ago (but if I open a review, the “Recent Comments” are … more recent).
Same here. I keep getting old pages and comments.
It just means that more and more potential scammees have been finding the site, and the heavy traffic sometimes causes slowdowns. Though, if you ask me, if folks like Minor Mongo knew how, they would be launching DDOS attacks by now.
I do not know if it is all the ads that automatically want to play or what, but for my computer this site is becoming almost unusable. Even typing this is painful it is so slow.
Yes i agree this site has following issues:
1) home page frequently shows old page even on page refresh.
2) Pages load slowly.
3) many times commenting/typing takes a long time.
I had the same issues on my computer in China but now here in Australia I don’t have any problems.
Gosh, every year for the foreseeable future there may be a new misguided kid or two trying to be the next Timothy Sykes thanks to his “success story” and offshoots profit.ly & investiscamma. Also IP and AMG and similar.
