Should You Pay $3500 for this “Textbook Arbitrage” Course?

In February 2020 I sent out an email to my subscribers - mostly Amazon sellers - asking them about their current challenges with their online business.

A few replied and said they were considering purchasing a $3500 (!) Amazon "online book arbitrage" training program. Others reported the price was $997 to start, then $97/month.

("Online book arbitrage" means finding a lower-priced book on Amazon, or other bookselling sites, buying it, and then flipping it back on Amazon FBA for a profit.)

I have 2 problems with that:

One: The $3500 or $997 price (ridiculous)...

Two: Readers have told me the company is taking money from innocent buyers (that's you), not providing anything of value, disappearing, then re-emerging with a new name!

At one point the $3500-per-customer deal was called "Textbook Money" and "Book Profits"...and "Entrepreneur ____"

In fact, this article says the folks behind Textbook Money engaged in some unscrupulous behavior. It's a lengthy expose.

I have to tell you, all reports point to a scam. Many innocent people, including retirees, have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars...

A few of them contacted me directly to tell me...

There's a chance that the unscrupulous company emerges again. If they do, you'll know what to look for. Always do your due diligence:

  • Ask other sellers
  • Google the company and owners' names
  • Check reviews online
  • Investigate the owners. Do they have transparency? Are they easy to contact? Do they have legitimate personal or business profiles on major sites (Linkedin, Facebook, etc.)
  • Ensure whatever you buy has a free trial period and/or no-questions-asked 100% money-back guarantee
  • Use a credit card where you can dispute the charges if necessary. (Never use a debit card nor your checking account)

...But please don't pay $3500! (Or even $997)...

    Just a note to let you know that most of the links in this article do not work. Had a similar experience with a few other articles on your blog.
