Freedom checks initially appear to be a harmless, reliable government program, but in reality they are far from it. They have been touted much like the gold rush was as the way to make it big and to capture your piece of easy riches. However the reality of them is also much like that of the gold rush, a disappointing journey to meager returns. The term freedom check roots back to Matt Badiali who claims that these checks are tickets to wealth and uses fake stock image testimonials to sell customers on his training newsletter. Plenty of sources over promise the capabilities of freedom checks with many standing to gain from converting new followers. These websites use many tactics typical of scams, but I think a small part of each person truly hopes they have just stumbled on their ticket to riches. Read this article at Affiliate Dork.
So, what are freedom checks? Well, they are both not a scary investment trap set by the rich to ensnare helpless victims but also not the painless path to riches. They are actually a type of investment called a master limited partnership in which must like a stock you buy part of a company and receive a share of the profit like a dividend. They are a bit different than stocks though. Companies that sell them are required to generate 90% of their revenue from US natural resorces, but they also benefit from being classified as a partnership when you buy part of the company. The classification as a partnership saves money on taxes which then can be distributed to investors. This results in a high dividend investments (5 to 9 percent according to dividend.com) mostly in gas and energy companies. So the long story short: freedom checks are a solid high dividend investment, but don’t expect to get the big bucks unless you can invest the big bucks.
