TV pitchman Trudeau released from custody

A Federal judge has agreed to release Kevin Trudeau, but the TV pitchman will have to remain on a short leash.

Trudeau was locked up Wednesday for violating court orders to stop his lavish spending.

Today the judge warned Trudeau to cooperate with federal regulators.

At a hearing this morning, a Federal Trade Commission receiver said he was suspicious of Trudeau’s lack of memory about monies during a 3-hour interview Wednesday night.

Another hearing is scheduled for next Thursday.

Trudeau could still be held in contempt of court and face 6 months in jail.

    Trudeau is an American Hero, do NOT believe the Media! Trying to portray as something he's not so the public rejects him! Believe me, Kevin is on YOUR side he's been fighting scumbag Corporate America on behalf of the American people! We support you Kevin !

    So, if I understand this case correctly: The government/FTC/FDA wants to take 37 millions from this gentleman because he offered his subjective opinion about what he wrote in a book?
    Sounds like attempted robbery, if you ask me.

    It's hilarious that they try to defend their argument by putting words in the mouth of us, the customers.
    Why would I want my money back?

    I've gotten extraordinary value out of every penny I've spent on this guys stuff, and I still get tremendous benefit from the material I bought several years ago!

    The value I've gotten for my money has far surpassed ANYTHING that I've ever bought before (except for that wonderful, organic coconut chocolate from Europe, though.. That's a really close second!).

    All of Kevin's books and seminars have had an incredible positive impact on my life. My health and my bank account are much better off because of information Kevin has provided. Not only that but dozens of my family and friends has also benefited from his books and products either directly or through me.

    It seems ridiculous and utterly wrong to see the spin that the media is putting on all this. If I never really knew or met the man and if I hadn't personally used his products and seen outrageous benefits then I probably would think he's a "crook" or "fraud" too! Thankfully I am aware that the media and government and people in authority use their power to place an illusionary negative image for the general public to see and follow. Kevin is standing up for our first amendment right to free speech. He is fighting against the all powerful American government and corrupt agencies like the FDA and FTC. Open your eyes and see past what is being shown to you through the authoritative powers that be. Think for YOURSELF.

    This tv pitch man is a very powerful positive being who has dong nothing but spread Love & Light in the world. His information has helped not just myself but tens of thousands of people around the world to better their lives and the lives of dozens more. It really serves me well to say that He is just human like you and I who deserves to be Loved. Lets not judge but spread Love for the hope of future achievement.

    KT doesn’t own GIN so no idea why the Government is trying sooo hard to go after an international club of success minded individuals who are working on improving our own lives as well as helping those who want to find ways of improving their lives. Personally KT and the many leaders he has introduced to me have had only positive impact in my life. Yes I have spent money close $9000 already in training and business trips to the US to meet these people face to face, but that’s really nothing, I spent $25,000 on my Pilot training courses, I have spent $5000 on Jay Abraham Courses, I have spent $8000 on Robert Kiyosaki Courses…all great, but the Information I have learned at the very entry level of GIN and from KT has already earned me over $17,000 in Profit, and continues to earn me profit. This is not MLM profit. I am talking about learning how to make Real money like as if I am a trader or broker. But that’s not all. Anyone who wants to see my evidence feel free to contact me. I got nothing to hide. You hear all these negative comments about KT, well let me show you real empirical evidence of me making money from Knowledge I got from KT and GIN.

    Money isn’t everything. I was able to turn my marriage around which was literally on the verge of divorce and my Kids being taken away from me. Put a price on that. KT is a hero. I m not American so can say much for the first amendment but he is a hero for helping not only Americans but also for giving so many people all around the world a way to take responsibility for themselves (instead of always depending on someone else like the government or company to take care of them) Thank You Kevin Trudeau and all your friends who have made such great positive changes in my family’s life. It’s really wrong what the media and Disgruntled Greedy ExGIN members are doing to try to discredit you.

      Please let me know if you get a satisfying answer to your very poignant question, Des! I've wondered the same thing. Just because KT was an extraordinary consultant to GIN, doesn't mean that he owns it. The government should take ONLY KT's earnings from the club, but they shouldn't take anyone else's earnings — no one else is a debtor in the outrageous judgment against KT.

    Kevin Trudeau has lied about a GIN council as a way to entice people into GIN
    Thats why GIN grew
    If KT truely was a part of a council of billionares why did he expose GIN and everybody in to the FTC and FBI and just pay the fine from the cash cow his members fully support
    KT encourages victim mentality and since many members can't see their own shadow/ dark side the are happy to find someone who encourages them to be a victim to , pharma govt etc.
    KT/GIN is also an organization that loves other whislte blowers but hey if you have something about GIN you better be quiet
    And yes i was a GIN member and am no longer because i questioned things the very thing that we NEED people to do and stop being a sheeple hypocrisy i say !

    And of course some info from KT is good

    A beautiful house built on a crappy foundation looks good but can fall anytime

    I myself would rather line myself up with anything other than a convicted felon

    KT has changed my life, thourgh ALL his books and all the GIN training….it's obvious that the FTC, Courts, Government of the USA don't like his advice because eit goes contrary to their agenda…who's the convict here? As per KT's teaching, it's all on who you listen to. You listen to the person who has been where you are and is where you want to be….obviously I would never want to be a part of the FTC, Courts or Government of the USA….their whole agenda is to keep the masses of the world and especially the USA in literal jail. If they keep people sick and incapable of fighting they would win….but KT has been teaching us how to not be part of this vicious circle….hence the real criminal is NOT KT but the ones who have 3 fingers pointing at themselves and the media is just cashing in of the profits by reporting false information.

My life has changed dramatically in the past 2 years of being with GIN and continues to grow in so many positive ways. I can not give enough gratitude for everything I have learned and the AWESOME people I have met!

    The training KT has offered in the form of Your Wish Is Your Command has been nothing short of spectacula. Before listening to it I wasn’t doing much. I was very lost and broke. Through the training KT has offered and the opportunities I’ve gotten since becoming a member of the global Information network I have been able to turn my life around financially and have given my life a brand new meaning and purpose that didn’t exist prior to KT and GIN.
    My thoughts and energy go out to you Kevin; you have never let any of us who know the truth down. Everything will happen exactly as it should in the best possible outcome.

    Since I have listened to Your Wish Is Your Command and join GIN my life has radically changed! I am a happier,healthier and successful person! My income has doubled, I developed great relationships with other like minded people,I live the life that I always wanted to live! I am very thankful to KT for his training,and for being a great mentor,teacher and a being a person of great integrity and character!
    I think, all this things that he has to go through is a very wrong doing from authorities! He has all our love and support!

    After listening to "Your Wish is Your Command" and joining G.I.N., my depression ceased and I have been happy, healthy and successful. Kevin has always been a great teacher. The charge that has given this fine of $37.2 Million dollars is the disbelief that the HCG diet is easy. I found it easy, but I have willpower. I guess if someone doesn't have willpower and doesn't want to stick to a plan, it may not be easy. But I did find it easy.
    Kevin could have given in to the powers trying to convict him and incarcerate him, but he's trying to make a stand for Free Speech, one of the guarantees in our Constitution. Alas, many people don't care about the Foundation of our Country.
    I pray for his safe deliverance from "the Dark Side."

    When i first got introduced to the info Kevin delivers, i had a feeling of being stuck in my life. I was completely fine, but nothing more than that.

    After listening to some of the stuff he tought (and applying it), i got happy, started my own successful business which have helped hundreads of people, developed better health than i could ever have imagined, and i have a more loving relationship than i could have ever dreamed possible.

    Now ofcourse I have done most of the "work". The fact is, i would have never done this if i havent heard Kevins good explenations on how to acheive this…

    If you are reading all these comments, stop and think about it for a while… What are opinions, and what are actual experiences. Then discern for yourself :)

      If you are the Magnus that I think you are, then I can most definitely approve of your comment, for I have myself met some of the people that you've touched with YOUR work. To see that Kevin Trudeau has had such a profound influence on your positive decisions just adds to the authority and authenticity of both you and Kevin Trudeau.

    Trudeau is not jus an American Hero he is a hero for the world American Product all over the world and he is providing us materials that help us not become slave for the Elite Class.
    KT Changed a lot in me by his materials, In the past few years I really don't know how to achieve my dreams and even I didn't know how to dream, I now Dreams a lot and I know how to achieve them.
    I always had a scowl in my face,not feeling happy but now I always have a smile and feeling happy all the time. If some one ask me what Your wish is your command did to you, I will tell him it made me smile and feel happy and good all the time and it is our ultimate goal in our life

    Thank you Kevin for the information that you have shared. The things shared in his books and further more by GIN have given me tremendous personal benefit. Blowing the top off my financial income, changing how I view health, augmenting my relationship with my family, re-igniting my vision of what I want my life to be…these are priceless. Being part of GIN has been one of the greatest choices of my life. My life has virtually changed in every aspect: relationships, money, peace of mind.The investment in joining the club has been pennies compared to the value I have got….continue to gain. There is no price on peace of mind…but if there is its $1000/$150.
    The training Kevin has given opened my mind and is helping people everywhere and is a positive light in the world.
    How can living with values like love, dreams, success, prosperity and freedom be a bad thing?
    Thanks again Kevin.

    Kevin has changed my life for the better! He is one of the most generous and positive person I have ever met. Because of him I've met my soul mate, I've made more money, I've gotten a better relationship with my brothers and family, I travel all around the world, and I am living my passion. I hope people who search "Kevin Trudeau" on the internet can see through these people's flat out lies, and do better research into the positive uplifting education he has shared with thousands of people.

    I am very proud that I am a member of Global information network.
    After joining GIN I will say my whole life directed to a direction where I never felt before. With the information and training Kevin Trudeau put together for the members, using that My business which was the same for many years increased 50% and is going up since then with less effort. I am a single mom and My relationship with my daughters took another level of understanding and we all make decisions together there is love and happiness in the home . My ability to forgive myself and others is gone to the roof. Love towards humanity, eagerness to contribute to the world, Finding out my passion meeting amazing and loving people in the club and knowing there are pure, generous, humble people like KEVIN TRUDEAU exist on this planet.
    I can not THANK enough to Kevin Trudeau for his training and be an example of courage and boldness to be who he is on the face of all what is happening to him.
    Love and Blessings to him. He is a true Hero.

    I have been Member for 3 years now. A wise man once said :" You are the change you want to see in this world." From what I have seen, Kevin T is a person who does exactly that. This is person who has chosen to leave everything that he could lavish to help the middle class and those of us who could only dare dream to have a fulfilling life. People need to wake up and realize that there is more to life than just worrying and crying over split milk. People need to realize that we only have one life to live and life is short. This is the realization that finally sunk in me and now I realize that if we want to create a better world then that starts with us, the people. Enough hoping for miracles from others who simply want to control you. If you understand how to create a better life for you (and this is explained when you join the club) sky becomes the limit. I am grateful for what KT has taught us and I am grateful that he never gives up. This is the deed of a true human being who believes in everyone living in bliss. Thank You KT

    I've been researching for more than 10 years in the fields of martial arts, health, nutrition, success principles, happiness and spiritual enlightenment and as a matter of fact I never found anything as nearly powerful as the GIN training is.

    My life has been positively impacted in all its aspects by GIN and it's getting better every day.
    I'm building great relationships with fantastic people with great commitments, focus and responsibilities; positive enthusiastic people that do not talk the talk but walk the walk, and have a great heart.
    If you ever had the opportunity to meet Kevin Trudeau in person you know he is a real gentlemen and a very nice and kind person.

    Kevin is being massively attacked by the mainstream media because he is exposing the corruption between governments and the pharmaceutical industry and more.
    Some people are saying that Kevin is telling lies and has produced fraudulent infomercials and books but I have a question for these people:
    "Have you ever tried to do what he is suggesting in his books?"
    I did. And my life dramatically improved. I would suggest to this negative people to consider that "to know and not to do, is not to know".

    Many people are talking about the subjects of natural health and government corruption today but most of them are not able to reach a huge audience.
    Kevin is very good in communication and sales so therefore his ability to reach out the masses is huge, and that's why the power that be fear him so much and it's trying to stop him in every way.
    Kevin is not giving up because this is a very important legal battle concerning the freedom of speech and if lost, could become a precedent and the basis to stop the freedom of speech of us all.

    Kevin is leading by example, showing the only thing to fear is fear itself, as fear it's only False Evidence Appearing Real.

    People are waking up. Please remember that everything begins inside yourself and you can be, do have everything you want in your life if you believe it.
    The hundreds, thousands monkeys are out now, and counting. We are unstoppable and it's going to be an exciting ride.

    Thank you so much Kevin for taking this huge challenge to shed light on reality and protect the freedom of speech for us all.

    With Love and Light

    Forgive them for they know not what they talk about. Why are they not asking all the ppl who have benefited from the information. Ask them how much $$$ they would pay to have lost all their weight. As someone who has, I lived a miserable life constantly "fighting" my weight and when I found KT's diet book, I was FINALLY successful in my weight loss journey !!! It was the easiest diet I'd ever been on, No amount of money would be enough to pay for the happiness, confidence and improved health that I now enjoy. Thank you KT!!! I am now 90 lbs lighter and and a million times happier, Thank you for all the information you bring to our awareness KT, :)

    The benefit my family and I have received because of our membership in the Global Information Network cannot be measured by dollars in the bank or how much stuff we own. The benefits to us include living a life full of joy and excitement, doing things “just for the fun of it,” setting goals and seeing things shift to make them come true. Kevin is the messenger and mentor we look to with deep-felt gratitude. The more the government, media, and courts hate him; the more we love him and what he does.

Whatever he did in the past is just that in the past….Rancur and unforgivemess runs rampid in our society…it's time for a change and GIN is just that…time to love one another, support each other and especially love our mentor and coach KT for introducing this concept to the world!!!!

    GIN is a networking club with a network marketing component. It's not an illegal operation. It's uplifted the lives of tens of thousands worldwide. Why is our government pillaging one set of consumers to remediate a totally different set of consumers — who didn't even ask for remediation to begin with? Why are the very parties that the FTC purports to protect becoming the collateral damage in the FTC's fight with KT? Why do they feel the need to protect us from ourselves? What about caveat emptor? What about money-back guarantees? Has anyone EVER been denied a refund from any of KT's companies? Even if KT did use spurious marketing practices, remedies are available to the alleged victims at their own bidding — remedies that won't ruin a good club like GIN. If members have Googled KT — with all of the negative criticism out there — and they STILL join GIN and prosper — then they've gone into it with eyes wide open.

    Look at all these testimonials. Congratulations on your success. However, it still doesn't change the fact that Kevin Trudeau has a history of crime, fraud, and continued behavior of such. His latest organization known as The Global Information Network is proof that people both benefit and get scammed through deceit by his actions and behavior. In my eyes he is not much different than a corrupt politician, crooked business executive, or twisted religious leader. This is an objective view coming from a former Level IV and Founding member of GIN. The time has come to put this fraud to an end…

      Thank you for being a Former GIN Member! I had to go to prison because I am an alcoholic. GIN gave me the tools to help with my illness & save my family. I own a business that does over $2 million dollars in revenues & volunteer probably more hours than you work in a week. Should I stop doing all of this for the benefit of others because of my past? Or should I spread the good word of being able to control my destiny now better than ever? Check yourself before you wreck yourself Former GIN member…you ARE NOT the one in charge!

      It's also true that KT was a convicted felon when you joined GIN, joined the remarkable rank of Founder, and upgraded to level IV. Clearly, GIN was a match for your needs for quite some time, just as it still is for tens of thousands of worldwide members. Everyone knows that KT pushes the limits of marketing, and that consumers should be vigilant in their purchasing decisions, but that doesn't mean that GIN is a fraudulent organization. According to the publicy-available court documents, KT didn't even take the commissions that were legitimately due to him. What kind of scam artist would pass up that opportunity?

    There are two things going on here. On one side you have some positive things being done that have helped some people… ok. On the other hand you have some things about KT that are, in the light of our judicial system, criminal. I am familiar with what he teaches, and you can get that information in many places – he's not teaching original material. To all the GIN members, I'll say what I've been saying since KT started the scam…. Get a few books from Brian Tracy, and read some Ayn Rand… then get on with your life. You'll have better results and it'll be waaaaay cheaper. If he was a true guru he'd be teaching you to self-lead and not to look to external authorities (such as himself) How many of you GIN folks actually made more than you put in? (nobody) Who can step up and say that they were not compensated in a manner that the "system" promised? (everybody) As far as his diet book goes – here's the thing… ALL diets work. They are not all good for you, but they all take off the weight. I could never figure out why people couldn't see through the diet book industry (scam) when eating right and watching portions does the trick every time… or why people still think MLM's work. As PT Barnum said… KT has a new customer born every minute.

      KT is teaching you about self leadership through the materials. As far as the teachings go, sure you can sort of find level 1 stuff on the internet but as you go through higher levels the stuffs taught there are not something you can find. If it were everyone would be living the life of their dreams by now. Sure you can find good stuffs in other cheap books or sources but realize what you are doing here. People seem to always want something for free and not willing to invest in it. This creates a world filled with abuse and unfair exchanges leading to world exploitation. Look at all the kids who are forced to work in the world. Where does this begin? From the notion that people just want freebies and cheap things and the only way for such people to get that is by child labor creating a lot of disharmony in the world. With GIN, you pay for what you get. And it is with this form of exchange that comes benefit in your life. Always looks at the consequences of your deeds before you promote them.

      I read all the books from the "gurus" for many, many years. I was in Metaphysics for many, many years. I've never been able to make such an amazing success of my life until I joined GIN and upgraded thru the levels. KT teaches the real deal – it works IF YOU work IT!!!

      Your credibility was really shot when you started answering your own questions – with WRONG answers. Doesn't sound like you went thru any of the trainings, or at least applied any of the trainings, since you don't think KT taught us to "self-lead". Right from the VERY beginning KT continually told us to ONLY LISTEN TO OURSELVES, and not take anyones word for something, NOT EVEN HIS! He kept saying over and over, who do you ultimately listen to? YOURSELF!

      Then you asked how many made more than they put in, and you said "nobody". Are you kidding me? I can't even begin to count how much more money I made than what I put in. And the information and changes I've made in my life are absolutely PRICELESS!

        And you said "Everybody" can say they were not compensated in a manner that the system promised????? What??? I've gotten EVERYTHING GIN PROMISED ME, and if they weren't able to deliver, they made it even better and gave me something of greater value!!!!! WITHOUT ME EVEN ASKING!!!

        You appear to be so miserable and angry. Hopefully you'll really "listen" to the CDs someday – you must still have them – but that's your choice of course. Doesn't it seem strange to you though that so MANY (thousands and thousands) of us are so blissfully happy and absolutely LOVE what this Club has done for our lives? Ever consider there just might be something you missed? Just sayin………….

    Hi – If you just landed from Mars or have just been fortunate enough to NOT being subjected to this Kevin Trudeau issue for the last few years, let me give you the real scoop on what is going on here. This is an open forum about Kevin Trudeau, and some people are deliberately populating the board with positive messages about him. This is a fabricated and dishonest campaign, and it does not reflect the reality of what is going on. Don't buy the carefully packaged messages about how wonderful he is and what he's done for this or that person. Kevin has been to prison twice already, and he's recently gone to jail, although he's currently out. He has a big case coming up in November though. Be clear about reality. Charges against him are serious, and he's been convicted more than once. His assets and interests are under the supervision of an agent for the court. This is a complex story and the testimonies here are meant to cloud the clear. He's not being bullied, harassed or unfairly picked on so don't buy that storyline either. The courts have better things to do with their time, and so do the bureaucrats. I'm just saying this because I want you to be aware that you are currently being bombarded with an orchestrated propaganda effort as you read this board. As an aside, my suspicion is that it was put together and executed by a small cabal of people. Read, and think what you will, but my best advice is to be keenly aware that you're being snowed. The courts will make their determination eventually and he'll have to live with the outcome. I guarantee you this much though… if you look into his past, like I have, you will have a far more integrated view of him than this board will have you believe. If someone was honest, they'd be encouraging you to look at everything. There's plenty online, the record is there… I'd suggest you start with John Stossel's report on him.. you can find it on You Tube and it is excellent.

      Oh, then, Franklin Michaels, please tell me your personal experience with Kevin Trudeau and/or the material of The Global Information Network?

      Which books and audios have you fully read and listened to, and then applied and used the information that you've learnt?

      There is a massive amount of positive testemonials here, and everywhere you look for it. I know many of these people personally, and I KNOW that what they are saying is more true that your nickname and the lack of evidence for your claims about "fabricated and dishonest" comments. Have you ever heard the wise words from a wise man that says that you SEE what you ARE? That's quite interesting, because you see fabrication and dishonesty.

      And even if some of your statements and assumptions were based on concrete facts, which, sadly, most of them are not, then take this into consideration: All of these positive testimonials and confession can't be lying!

      And by the way, Franklin Michaels:

      You talk about this "small" cabal of people who writes many of these comments.. Well, I can verify that you're right.

      However, small is not an appropriate word to describe us (if we were the FTC or the US government we would now sue you for something like, let's say $37 million, for offering your personal opinion about the SIZE of this group, just like Kevin got sued for using the word "easy" to describe the Weight Loss Cure;).

      We are a "cabal of people", or more accurately, a GROUP OF FRIENDS, who met through a wonderful club. This group of friends consists of about, one moment, let me check… 44 + 70 + 62 friends. Some of these numbers somewhat overlaps, so lets be conservative and say about 100 friends. Friends who met through a MAGNIFICENT club that Kevin Trudeau has contributed IMMENSELY to. This club is growing each and every day, with or without you.

      We'd love to have your kind spirit onboard, but this is a club for those who are willing to realize their dreams. You have to qualify, and you need the friendship of someone who is already on the inside. The relationships built through this club, is, as you can see, INTENSELY strong. The FACT that just a group of about 100 individuals can put their minds together in friendship and harmony, and STAND UP for what they BELIEVE in, is heartwarming and tremendously powerful.

      We are people from aaalll over the worlds, from different backgrounds, with different languages, hopes and dreams. But STILL, through this society – this success club that Kevin Trudeau has benefited enormously to – we have all found strength to harmonize and communicate lovingly and peacefully. This IS a WONDERFUL example of how this world can interact in peace.

      If this reverberates, even the slightest, with you, then I suggest that you take a closer look. Give yourself the benefit of a doubt, and let yourself taste the reality of all these testimonials. You have the opportunity to positively change your life forever, but it is up to you.

      I wish you well. Good luck.

      Ok so Nelson Mandela also went in prison, but what for? To fight for freedom. This is also what KT is doing but you just don't want to see it that way because of your own brainwashing and bad experience. So what if someone went to jail? Does that really make them a bad person? If a poor homeless father has to steal food to keep his son alive and ends up being in prison because of that, is that being a bad person? Come on, use your common sense people. The reason why this world is turning into a bad place is because people fail to use common sense and honesty and base their reactions on what their minds want to hear as opposed to what is really going on in this world!

    As an ex GIN member of well over 3 years, I have a question for all the people out there reading this that support Kevin Trudeau and GIN. How many of you ever made any donations to his Legal Defense Fund before the receivers took over and basically shut that down? I'm willing to bet that not too many of you have. I have been in numerous groups on Face Book talking with current GIN members who are hard core Kevin Trudeau supporters and have not ran into any yet that claimed they have donated any money to him. I've even talked to upper level members in GIN that spent thousands of dollars upgrading and buying tools and yet they donated nothing to KT's Legal Defense Fund. When I was in GIN, I donated well over $2000 to Stand With KT, and I wasn't even employed at the time. To me, it's total hypocrisy, and it's a perfect example of Talking the Talk, but not Walking the Walk. If I was still in GIN and a hard core KT supporter like I use to be, I would even say that the old saying, "All that has to happen for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing" would definitely apply here.

      Chris said:
      September 23, 2013 at 8:06 PM

      I've recently made a donation of a substantial amount in accordance to my relatively good economy for a student. Walking the walk is as congruent as it can with talking the talk :)

      September 23, 2013 at 9:14 PM

      Who cares about people donating to his legal fund? Some high level members were not even made aware of his video but those who listened to it took immediate action. The ones who didn't chose to do so because they were in no financial means to do so. Just cos someone is in GIN does not compel them to donate. KT says donate whatever you can. Everyone is at a different place and I am sure KT understands that. Those who are true GINNERS will spend the rest of their life knowing that when it was time to stand up and make a difference, they did so and therefore they will live the rest of their life with no guilt or remorse. As for hypocrisy, I would rather leave that for those who just used GIN to want to get a better life but when they needed to support GIN when GIN needed them those people did nothing but just quit.

      Having donated for years, I went to the dinners and there were plenty of other members there, high level and low level. Not sure what high level members you were talking to, but the dinners were packed!!

    Seriously!!! In the past?? Kevin continues his lying deceitful ways still today. It never ends. Amazing that many do not see. Take the blinders off. And to those who claim No one has asked for there money back in re to the book. WRONG!!! You are very misinformed. And should not be telling tall tales on a public forum. And yes I can back up all that I state. Thanx and have a lovely day. Dont be hypocrites!!!

        Kevin even states in his video on YouTube, KT Appeal To Fans, that anyone who wanted a refund got a refund, and that the government only got maybe a handful of complaints. You don't have to listen to the media to get informed. KT will tell you the specific facts, the truth and his viewpoint.

    What I have learned from Kevin about the world and how to be successful in it 100% invaluable. There is no way to put a price tag on the knowledge that can never be taken away from me. My kids will grow up in a better world because of what I have learned from him. My family and I thank him from the bottom of our hearts for what he's done. A real man never backs down from his morals and principles no matter how much pressure there is on him. We're behind you 100% KT. Thank you for everything that you've done and will continue to do no matter what the outcome of this fraudulent money grab turns out to be.

    Yes, I have donated to Stand With KT because I believe that the court's judgement was WAY out of porportion to his alleged transgression in the Weight Loss Cures infomercial. But since KT values energetic, as well as financial support for his legal defense efforts, it doesn't matter how many donors are also GIN members. Therefore, none of the above energetic supporters are hypocrites. No one disagrees with angmcw43 that there have been many book refunds — that's true for any book seller — but I've never heard of anyone being DENIED a refund. 1st Amemdment allows KT to market his books, and anyone who feels mislead or unsatisfied gets their money back. How is this deceptive?

    Kevin Trudeau has facilitated so much opportunity and so much potential in my family that really there are no words to express the gratitude we feel for him, his teachings and willingness to stand up for what's right against those that are trying to suppress goodness in this system we call the USA. Love and Light resonates with virtually everyone he has crossed paths with. I know I am a better person and my kids will be better healthy people because we found Kevin Trudeau. And regardless what happens we will thrive because we are GIN. We are many, We are one. We love the energy that radiates from all this, it serves to propel us further and to higher levels. To the Media Industry, we say,… We love you, as without your help in this, GIN would not reach so many so quickly. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

    I've known the Kevin Trudeau name for maybe 3/4 my life. He's never done anything for me.

    Those prophets refuse to be honest. They tell my people there will be peace, even though there’s no peace to be found. They are like workers who think they can fix a shaky wall by covering it with paint. 11 But when I send rainstorms, hailstones, and strong winds, the wall will surely collapse. 12 People will then ask the workers why the paint didn’t hold it up. ~ Ezekiel 13:10

    I wish with my heart that all of this will go away and KT is allowed to remain a free man so he can continue helping more people. I have nothing to say but good things about this man. I never seen anyone complain nor have I seen anyone asking for a refund on his books. I have friends who have benefited from KT's books and information. GIN has also been a wonderful way to give great information to new members. Thank you KT for your value production to society.

    Kevin Trudeau, his books, the club, Global Information Network, that he has contributed enormously to, and all the speakers in this club, are responsible for the positively transformed life that I'm now living. The information is really priceless.
    Why, you say?

    Try to put a price tag on it when your family is finally back together. You're eating dinner two times a week with your sisters, who used to despise each other, and your Mom and Dad, who before were "at war".

    Try putting a price tag on this when you now have over 70 new friends, and they are the best individuals you've ever met.

    Try calling it A SCAM, a LIE, a "pyramid scheme" when you've regained your health, self-worth and self-confidence. When people REGULARLY compliment you for your attractiveness, vibrant health, charisma and vitality, and just two years ago you were spending several months of your life at the hospital, not feeling great at all.

    To call Kevin Trudeau untruthful is like calling the government and the pharmaceutical commericals honest.
    To call The Global Information Network a scam and a pyramid scheme is like calling the sky the ocean and the moon a cheese.
    I mean, it's just complete lunacy when you've been there, applied it and taken a look at the difference in yourself.

    Thanks to KT, we can see through all of the BS the government throws at us and have been throwing at us for a very long time. The government controls the media, so to say John Stossel is a reliable source of info shows just how many people are still asleep. Kevin exposes the government for what they are…criminals. You probably don't understand because your brain and body is so filled with toxins and chemicals administered by your beloved government that you can't begin to think on your own. You think you know whats right about KT but you don't. You're fat, stupid, unfriendly, and you sit in front of your tv and computer all day, everyday for years, and that is why you are a loser who cannot think straight. And you certainly are not alone. But the good news is, we at GIN love you. We want you to succeed. We can help. We support eachother. We have the tools to help you succeed. You CAN have be and do whatever you want. If you can't see that the government IS the SCAM. The whole system is a SCAM. YOU and I are being SCAMMED by who?.. The government…thats who.
    Bless GIN, Bless KT, and yes Bless You too!

    I always been really curious and have never been satisfy by mass news or opinion. I am grateful that 2 years ago I have listened to Kevin on one of is audio named Your Wish Is Your Command.

    I became a member of this powerful private club GIN. Since joining this club, I have started my business in China to help wealthy Chinese to invest overseas, I have meet the women of my life that I would be ready to die for, my mom is on her way to be fully cure and my finances have never been so good!

    Thanks for being a leader for the freedom of speech Kevin! I will strongly encourage everyone that is watching this video or other news about Kevin take a few minutes to think by themselves why the elite and government would like to silence him. Why are they not focussing or big criminals such as Mosanto and big pharmacies who are selling you drug solutions instead of natural one…

    Thanks Kevin for helping me to have, be and do everything I want. It’s now time to pay forward!!!

    I´m so, so grateful for everything Kevin Trudeau does for mankind. He doesn´t have to, but he does that anyway. That´s how big he is. The benefit my family and I have received from membership in the Global Information Network can´t be measured in money. He is the mentor and messenger that has changed our lives completely and we are forever grateful for that.

    36000+ GIN members have had success beyond expectations, lives have been changed, people have lost huge amount of weight and changed their lives, some have been healed from diseases that the medical system had lost hope on these people, and the list goes on….yet one person speaks out of ignorance…sad day for you and anyone who listens to you…remember the law of attraction was around before KT (It is not KY as you insinuated throughout your comment, I think you are thinking of the wrong topic) Read the successes, the changed lives and really research the lies of the FTC et al, they would like to have more puppets like you, so they can get richer at your expense. KT is not perfect but no man is, we all make mistakes and I am sure you have made your fair share of them as well….look in the mirror and do your homework before you speak…it;s all about who do you listen to!

    Dear Abe Husein,

    First of all, let me thank you, for you are adding tremendously to the pool of information that contains ALL of the improvements that GIN (and KT) may want to utilize on it's way to increasingly more and more success.

    Your critique is valuable to us, and we love you for having the courage to stand forth as the target of mockery by the future masses of people who haven't yet been exposed to the information in GIN, but who understands its value. Eventually, they will also know the power in experiencing the contrast of what they want, like the contrast that you are experiencing now. Everything will be okay, even though all of this hatred of yours, unfortunately, bounces back at you in the very near future.

    When the very world that you've created turns back at you, please know that you're always welcome to return to your senses, make a new decision based on the information that you do not yet know, and receive our forgiveness. The people of GIN forgives.

    And yes, as another, wise Abe says, there IS great love for you here.
