Investors Hub Or Ihub / Ihub bias

1 United States Review updated:

Recently, i, like many others, started playing the etf market, and needed some insight into overall market direction. Ihub has many boards dedicated specifically to the etf market. Unfortunately, some of the moderators sway away from topic, and choose to post personal religious and political views, instead of useful info on etf's. I complained to the administrators there, and got nowhere. As a paying subscriber, i deserve to get my money's worth. Needless to say, i will most likely be canceling my subscription with the site. If they thought i was a pain in the ### before, they have no idea what negative blogs, and word of mouth can do. My suggestion is avoid the site and save your money.

    I have to agree. I honestly feel as though ihub admins are promoting fraud. I pointed out on several occasions on the GITH and KDSC boards that NextGenTrade is Eric Stratton Racheff and he is scamming investors. Pumping the stock and then dumping his holdings. He has even used the exact same story twice now. He tried to do the same process with SKGO. ihub admin shelly keeps deleting my posts as either personal attack or privacy violation, even though he is currently listed as director of GITH and CEO of KDSC. How is it a privacy violation to point out that a person on their board, who is pumping a stock, is part of company management? And the personal attacks were pointing out that he was running the same scam a third time. I would not be surprised if some of the admins are on the take on some of these scams.

    You know quite a few people get taken by IHUB. They think they are the best and no one can touch them. The admins there treat you with total disrespect unless you're one of the circle.

    The thing I find funny is that matt brown acts like a saint and people love him for it. Sad part about is that they have 142, 000+ members and they have a post per member of a lot less. At this point I really don't think they have that many. You then have the posters like MOMO who don't even disclose and pump the crap out of stocks. Tina Marie (which is funny in itself) started disclosing when she had to and not before.

    That board is full of scams. MGMT of KDSC is modding the board and IHUB allows it. I find that total BS but again only a few people complain about it (publicly)

    shelly and matt are both on the take, and get money on the side. IFlub is, and always has been totally corrupt.

    I have to agree fully...Most of the posts seem like they are fraud. They currently are promoting the stock NEOM, which with more careful research I found is a scam. I mean if one stock is a scam, how many more of them are. Should of known that people would rather scam than help our very sad.

    GrooveMaster ~ I haven't been on iHub in awhile

    Looks like some iHub mod had my 2 posts
    on Hydrogen Vechicles deleted in claim they where spam ...

    One being on the Ronns Motor board
    The other on my personal Corporation web page ...

    In personally reviewing them in full regards
    the posts where totally on full topic
    of the Hydrogen Vechicle concept
    and should have never been deleted by any of iHub mods ...

    Just goes to show the immaturity & bias
    of some of the members of iHub
    when it comes to direct business activity ...
    I have reported this to Matt for review ...

    I agree to an extent. But not totally.

    But... Eric Stratton Racheff, GITH and/or SKGO plain and simple failed ventures. Haha lining their pockets huh? well I would like to see proof of that?

    Most are quick to say, "oh my.. its a scam". When they simply just can't deal with the fact that a business plan can fail.

    But very true that the hub is quite filled with people who have an agenda.

    IHUB is very corrupt and manipulative. They work with each other to short stocks. Ask any Mod that can see the deletes unless they work with ihub. They all should be put in jail. I saw one board on the breakout tab get removed because they didn’t want others to know about it. I have a print screen for it too, just in case. They have a mob mentality. Since it is so big now they can get away with whatever they want. I would love to see these [censor] hurting companies locked up for good. I can't believe people actually pay for their [censor] service.

    Yeah, they actually have been taken to court because they hire bashers to drive down stocks. It's funny Ihub was sued by minamar and lost! Every time I call out a basher my post is deleted... like check this out...

    If anyone is skeptical about Minamar group please check out Before I invested in NWTT I did my DD on the company itself and their promoter (Minamar). This is all MHO and you should do your own DD and not base your investments on what I say. I just lay the facts out there and no company should be bashed senseless if it does indeed have potential such as NWTT.

    Below is a response to one of their bashers saying the price of gold is going to drop nearly 50%...

    I just got 6 months jail because I finally got a bashers address ... though I did not post everything I called him by his first name and mentioned his state. When I questioned Shelly aka JaniceShell if he worked for ihub, she jacked it to 2 years. Admin have many aliases and are posting on your favorite board every day bashing and laughing and getting rich.

    People beware, the management and administrators (commonly known as admins) of ihub are very biased. They pick and choose what they consider a violation of their "TOS" based soley on if you are a paying customer or not. I have personally seen posts removed by free members for violations of ihubs "TOS" and have seen paid members posts, even though they are also clear violations of ihubs "TOS", get left standing. A personal aquatince of mine even received a degrading message that was sexual by nature from a paying ihub member and even though this was reported to ihub admins, they did absolutely nothing about it. It strongly appears that ihub promotes that kind of abuse as well as allowing certain ihub members to manipulate stock prices. Does anybody know where ihub can be reported or if there is any pending legal suits against ihub that information can be turned over to?

    I-hub is a scam, I totally agree with the allegations against them now. I am a paying customer but that is not what matters to them most. I guess sometimes I post a few extra posts on a stock pick I have and it probably what most people do. However, I noticed when one of my picks is not part of some hidden agenda my posting will be suspended. Were as I've gone through other posters spamming as much as 50 posts not being suspended even after I reported a TOS violation to the admin. So it is becoming pretty obviouse that there is a group of paid pumpers and bashers working behind the scenes together with I-hub. This is illegal and can be dealt with if presented to the proper authorities. It is pretty obvious when posts on a few picks are spamming the entire I-hub especially the top boards. This won't be going on for much longer, as pride will be the result of their fall.

    Good Morning everyone!

    Since I was doing DD last night and came across this web site I posted it on 1 of the boards on ihub and was banned within 3 minutes. And put in jail for indeaitley. Seems they don't like the truth. I habe been on ihub for about 3 years and mod about 4 boards, I never came across this before now. Like most of you here I have had the same feeling and experiences with a few boards and admins. Seems they have there own agender. The board I got banned on last night is FLST Fuelstream. seems there have been pumping this stock all weekend and don't want someone like me to exspose them. over the weekend there have been 100's of posts meanless posts. Feel free to check that board out and you will see the pumping on going!

    Oh my my...the more IHub get away with what they do the more they will do. one pumper and basher reivax boast to other people that he worked 20 years for the SEC and his name is xavier. if you look at his name how it spells xavier backwards. i googled his name xavier and securities and exchange commission and sure enough there is an xavier with a resume that says he works at the sec. i then looked up his name on linkedin and there he is again. reivax is in jail now but the peeps that he talked to don't know why. he says there is no reason and that maybe ihub is scared that maybe bein watched by the sec or the fbi? There are other people working for ihub that are cops. but they are just as sleazy as reivax. the goverment better hurry up and do something or they will all have to be arrested!!!

    I am in the process of suing IHUB and David Lawrence of the Legal department in particular. In the past five months I have saved ALL correspondence with David Lawrence of IHUB, all IHUB admins and MODS. I have screen saved every post and PM in the past five months. I have contacted the SEC and they are opening an investigation. My complain has to do with one ticker in particular SVFC. This stock has been manipulated and criminally naked shorted by IHUB and their partner in crime Ironridge. SVFC recently sued Ironridge and the state of NY banned ALL posting EVERYWHERE of SVFC (bogus) "sale of assets, liquidation and sale of patent" Ironridge and IHUB have not complied to this order, every day posting lies about SVFC and bullying shareholders while they shorted the stock. For five months I tried to counter the lies. I was private messaged death threats. I notified Admins and they did nothing. Meanwhile, each time the stock was in a highly shorted position and the stock began to rise - my account was "put in jail" - frozen so I was unable to post. This was done by an admin on three separate occasions. When I emailed David Lawrence in legal I was attacked and bullied. Lawrence spoke arrogantly, ignorantly and belligerently. IHUB is a scam. I have proven to the SEC that IHUB and Ironridge (criminal company located in Bahamas) are together involved in stock manipulation and racketeering. On the IHUB board all "mods" are chosen by Admins that fit the admins trading position. SVFC board has been overtaken by Criminal Bashers paid by Ironridge and IHUB. These mods bash and lie all day long and erase any positive or counter arguments. In six months David Lawrence will be in jail and IHUB will be shut down.
