A few years ago, some friends of mine and I lost a chunk of money to an internet scam. A friend gave the phone number to me for Eagle Research Associates and I visited with Lynndel Edgington, the CEO. He explained to me the events surrounding Regenesis, the people , who took our money.

Everyone needs to be aware of the services provided by Eagle Research Associates to protect themselves for the predators.

Eagle Research provides a valuable service to people who need to be informed about what to look out for when considering an investment or online business opportunity. Additionally, they help educate people about what to do when they have been taken in by a Ponzi scheme or similar scam - and there are many of them out there.

I would highly recommend consulting Eagle Research before investing a penny with anyone, but if you missed that opportunity and have been scammed, definitely talk to them about what to do next.

After going with an unregistered investment adviser I found myself out a lot of money. I did not know what steps to even begin to take for not only getting my money back, but also stopping the adviser from practicing in the future. Eagle Research contacted state regulators to inquire further on my behalf and advised me on what steps to take to give me the best shot at reaching my objective of getting refunded and stopping the adviser from continuing. They even went as far as proof reading and suggesting edits on my first letter requesting a refund.

Thank you Eagle Research for all of your help! It was so helpful to have someone offer support and advice when I really needed it.

I run the site WorkAtHomeTruth.com - Eagle Research and Associates has helped many people who want to work at home avoid falling for scams that would cost them thousands of dollars, help them file complaints with the proper authorities, and even avoid going to jail for unwittingly participating in scams. He has also been instrumental in educating people about many different types of investment scams through his work at Eagle, the authors he's found for Swindles.org, and the important contributions he makes at RealScam.com

He has a solid track record of being able to organize documentation and present it in a way that alerts authorities to seriously troublesome scams that might otherwise fly under the radar.

I was only in the Ponzi Zeek Rewards for a few months. My Zeek Rewards sponsor is a scammer. My Zeek Rewards daily ad person is a scammer. When Zeek Rewards was shut down in August 2012 all my sponsor and ad person wanted to do join more Ponzi's.

Profitable Sunrise was introduced to me in Sep 2012 from my Zeek Rewards sponsor.

Thanks to Eagle Research for your posts about Zeek I came to reality that Zeek was a Ponzi therefore Profitable Sunrise was a Ponzi or whatever bs these scammers are promoting are nothing but scams (Had I done my research before I joined Zeek back in May 2012 I would never had joined)

Eagle Research helped me realize that Zeek Rewards was a Ponzi. Eagle Research directed me to the Zeek Rewards website http://www.zeekrewardsreceivership.com to help in the recovery of my funds. I learned from Eagle Research to never join another Ponzi. Eagle Research answered all my questions and I am very pleased to give them this review.

Thankyou Eagle Research.

I came across this organization through Volunteer Match while looking to gain some extra experience in specific areas of my college studies. The mission of Eagle Research Associates is what attracted me to them and ultimately made me want to work with this organization. Eagle has multiple missions but the one that really meant something to me is their mission against cyber crime,scammers, and Ponzi schemes. Eagle Research Associates not only combats these things but they inform others about it. I believe a informed society can protect themselves in many ways and many of these crime issues will dramatically decrease. I feel very grateful to be in contact with this organization and to be apart of it. I look forward to doing more work with them soon.

I found Lynn and Eagle Research Associates as part of a search I often do online for finance related items. Caring for both my elderly parents, and witnessing losses that have occurred with other families has heightened my awareness of the types of fraud that take place.

Eagle maintains a website that I use as a reference when talking with other people about money. Most of it in discussing precautions people should be taking before investing or attending a seminar. It is surprising how often someone will ask me a question about an opportunity they have heard about.

One of these opportunities was something called Zeek Rewards which one of my business associates was thinking about investing in. At the time, I had no idea what it was other than it sounded fishy. Eagle had done a good amount of work in warning others about the potential fraud. Sure enough not long after that discussion the authorities moved in and closed Zeek down.

I don't know if there are many organizations that exist to warn and educate the public about scams. What I do know is it is a vital service especially as our population ages. I am always struck when a scheme collapses that some people have lost all their money. Yet in almost every instance had the investors just followed a few basic checks, they could have saved themselves a huge loss.

In a nutshell Eagle is giving people the tools to protect themselves from scams. I know they do some work with law enforcement in reporting scams, but to me the prevention tools are invaluable keeping funds safe.

I know Lynn Edgington, Founder / President / and Chairman of Eagle Research Associates, personally and have dealt with him in a professional capacity as well. He is one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met. His unwavering dedication to the mission of Eagle Research Associates is clear from the first meeting anyone has with him. His passion for exposing financial frauds and schemes is white hot, and the tenacity with which he pursues the information he acquires is second to none. You don't want to be the bad guy that Eagle Research finds out about; you'll soon be out of business and behind bars.

I have known the founder for many years and was asked to serve as an advisory board member from the beginning of Eagle. Lyn is passionate about preventing financial scam and also educating the public how to prevent becoming a victim. It is amazing to me how a non-profit like Eagle can stretch so far and work with so many influential law agencies to stop financial fraud and help put away criminals.

I have had the privilege of knowing the founder of Eagle Research Associates for over two decades as a consummate professional with a passion to protect people from the many con artists out there. The organization is well connected with federal law enforcement agencies at the national level in the United States as well as world wide. They call Eagle Research for help more than Eagle Research calls them. People would be wise to educate themselves through Eagle Research Associates web site and their community seminar events to avoid becoming another statistic.

Many people worldwide are suffering financial hardship and are desperately looking for a way to make money. Scammers, online and offline are having a heyday preying on the uninformed and the vulnerable, especially the elderly, the disabled and the unemployed with their fraudulent financial schemes. These schemes are run by nameless or falsely named professionals, frequently on the internet, and nearly impossible to track down when things go wrong. The schemes look oh so good and oh so safe and their owners sound oh so credible. They can hook everyone from the computer illiterate to the qualified professional. Many victims suffer terrible financial hardship and its consequent impact on their lives.

Eagle Associates are doing a vital job of educating us to recognize the signs of these fake businesses and investments, in addition to their work in trying to close them down and providing critical information to the sadly underfunded authorities.

If you have been invited to join one the many schemes around, check with Eagle's site. You may find out that you have received an invitation to be a victim of a highly professional fraudster.

i first became aware of Eagle Research Associates following the closure of Ad Surf daily, later found to be a Ponzi scheme by the civil/criminal trials. I often visit their website to stay informed of online scam artists and their tactics, as should everyone.

I run a small website in which I link to the Eagle Research website, as an information source for my readers.

I became aware of Eagle Research after I had written an article in February of 2013 exposing a worldwide Ponzi scheme. Lynn Edgington, the founder and president, provided invaluable assistance to me in assembling my story and bringing down this scam. He is a fearless advocate for victims worldwide and I have the highest respect for him and his organization.

I run a website which gets between 70,000 to 100,000 visitors per month in which I often need to help people avoid getting involved in various scams. Eagle Research Associates has been a tremendous asset to my subscribers by not only providing alerts to major scams they should avoid, but by also taking time to educate them on what to look for to evaluate whether or not something is a potential scam. Lynndel, the founder of Eagle Research Associates has also been instrumental in helping me to provide people with information on which law enforcement agencies to file complaints/reports with based on the particular type of scam in question. Two of the scams he helped me with in this way in 2009 were ultimately part of the FTC Operation Shortchange - one of which I was able to provide documentation directly to the FTC and I ultimately agreed to testify in their case based on the complaints visitors to my site had generated.
