Investors Hub Or IhubIhub bias

H

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)

    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 economy..so very sad.

    In personally reviewing them in full regards
    the posts where totally on full topic

    I agree to an extent. But not totally.

    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.

    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!

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.

    I too am reporting I-HUb to the SEC and have collected extensive research on pump n dump schemes. I have tested posts, from early AM to late at night and they are 100% fact based posts, and not "off topic" - but if they are in ANY way critical of the company they are running a pump n dump on, the posts are immediately pulled down by one of their hand picked "moderators". I've easily (as in child's play) been able to prove that most posts are via one or two posters using at least a dozen aliases and they are also the so called "moderators". Then some poor sucker joins and tries to point out something simple like, "The company is nearly out of cash per the balance sheet, 10-Q page XX" Not only does their post get yanked faster than you can blink (as the 50 vapid cheerleading posts all remain up and blaring), but then they pummel the poor guy and often literally chase people away in fear. I tested posting around the clock- and someone will always "scrub" your post, day or night if it's counter to the pump they're running, or the opposite of they're running a short dump cycle. The site is 100% criminal in my opinion. I'm going to point it out to my congress person, the key committee people in the house/senate and request the SEC shut it down or sue it out of existence. It serves only to rip-off amateurs who "think" that penny scams are a way to quick riches and is in collusion with these scam "companies" (term used very loosely- as most have no cash, no revenues, no sales, no products- but ENDLESS "PR" and hype). SHUT IT DOWN- KILL IT. That's what needs to be done to I-FRAUD.

    I promise The best way to combat IHUB is not on their board as its like playing poker with a guy that looks at all the cards and controls the cards they give you. Best thing is to copy and paste IHUB criminal activities all over the net...any board where you find them slamming start posting excerpts from around the net on their founders who are in Jail and have deals or plead guilty to stock manipulation.

    I promise the more links that are found on google the faster they will get what they deserve...You can just google IHUB [redacted] or IHUB criminal activity there is plenty of information...when you find bashes they will stop when you start post excerpts from these articles.

    They know that if they continue it will pop up in more searches and they will dissapper...so try it! I hope IHUB gets shut down for good of all as they are truly sleaze bags.

    You really think they are on the take? Here's proof their founder Matt has set the example some still follow: http://investorshub.advfn.com/SEC-Charges-Eleven-in-Stock-Manipulation-Ring-15452/
    We are in the throws right now with I-Hub Administators i.e. Edward and it appears any positive post supporting management or defending blatant lies by the posters with an agenda behind then i.e. Long-vestor are deleted by the I-Hub Administrators. The lies and slanderous comments about management remain of course untouched by the I-hub Admin personnel. The company QTMM is a fully reporting, valid and ethically run company without a management team interested in embezzling. How odd is that for a penny stock? One that is not about laundering money through a pump and dump either. There appears to be a concerted effort by the bashers to report lies and I-Hub Admins to suppress valid rebuttals that refute the lies with facts!


    Get rid of the I-Hub Admins and the site would be fairly decent. The intro section for Quantum Materials Corp that the people put together is by far, bar none, the best site for getting a feel and info of the TRUE value and potential of the stock. It's loaded with info!

    I have been having serious problems with IHUB myself. I am not sure if the IHUB administrators are invested and just don't like what others have to say; but this is ridiculous. I have been a paying member and am unfortunately locked in for a couple months yet - since i payed 3 months at a time. In my case, they are supporting the bashers and removing posts by the supporters of a company. I believe it is illegal to manipulate the stock price in this manner. I would like to talk with someone about this...

    Exactly right on Ihub...I don't understand why lawyers don't get to the real meat of the issue..it is NOT about "free speech"...IHUB behind the scenes is controlling content. Their "Admins" and "Moderators" constantly control which posts are allowed and which are not...the conversations are steered by IHUB behind the scenes in manipulation schemes of stocks. Its that simple. If ALL opinions were allowed it might be a valid argument...but they are not.

    Update, it has SERIOUSLY gotten worse here. The biggest crook here is Dave. He laughs at anyone and has become very COCKy. He's a crook lawyer who gets around loopholes to protect his own [censor] when the chips start to fall. He says he works with the SEC, but he's a master manipulator of information at this site.

    DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING at this site. It preys on new and uneducated investors. There is a better site where misinformation is filtered out much better where investors can actually talk to investors. It's called Investor's Hangout.
