Is the Canuck Method a Scam?

In the Canuck Method sales video, the narrator, Jake Mason, promises you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars within weeks, or he will pay you $10,000. Mason claims his method will quickly turn you into a millionaire. Don’t believe a word of it.

According to Mason, all you have to do to start making hundreds of thousands of dollars is create a free account and click your mouse a few times. Does that sound too good to be true?

is the canuck method a scam

In the video, several people tell how they made hundreds of thousands of dollars with The Canuck Method. These same people gave the same testimonies for The Brit Method, The Aussie Method, The Singapore Method and The Malay Method! They are amateur actors from and paid to read a script.

In the sales video, Mason logs into what appears to be a bank account with a balance of $12 Million. It’s fake.

Is The Canuck Method too good to be true? You better believe it! The Canuck Method is a scam of the highest magnitude and extremely dangerous.

Jake Mason is Fake.

Remember in The Canuck Method video when Jake Mason guaranteed you’d make hundreds of thousands of dollars the first month, or he would pay you ten grand? He’s lying.

Incidentally, Jake Mason is Jake Pertu in The Aussie Method and Jake Shen in The Malay Method and The Singapore Method. Do you see a pattern here?

Jake “The Snake” is a paid voice actor. His picture is a stock image of a male model. In other words, he is a promotional character created by the owner of The Canuck Method website.

Jake Mason is no more real than Ronald McDonald.

The Canuck Method Earnings Disclaimer.

You will not make hundreds of thousands of dollars your first month, and Jake will not pay you $10,000.

The Canuck Method earnings disclaimer states they don’t guarantee anything.

You can read The Canuck Method Earning Disclaimer yourself if you scroll to the bottom of the webpage and click on “Disclaimer.”

Dig into the first paragraph of The Canuck Method disclaimer, and you’ll see this line, “THERE IS NO GUARANTEE.”

Why is The Canuck Method a Scam?

To be clear. You will not make money with The Canuck Method; you will lose money and possibly go into debt.

There is nothing special about The Canuck Method. It’s just a long sales video designed to trick you into opening a so-called “trading account” with an unregistered binary options broker and giving them at least $250. They will try to get a lot more money from you, but their scheme starts at $250.

The purpose of all the hype in the sales video is to get you to give your money to an unregistered broker.

To better understand the danger of The Canuck Method, allow me to explain the difference between a registered broker and an unregistered broker.

Registered Broker vs Unregistered Broker.

In any country with a securities market, there will be a regulatory agency that enforces the law as it relates to securities. In the US, this agency is the Securities Exchange Commission.

The SEC grants licenses to registered brokers that abide by the law and a code of ethics. In the US, if a registered broker cheats a client, the client can appeal to the SEC for help.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are unregistered brokers. Unregistered brokers are not licensed, and they are not regulated. Unregistered brokers do NOT follow the law or a code of ethics. And they usually are based in countries far from any regulatory agency.

If an unregistered broker cheats you, there is nothing anyone can do about it.

The United States SEC suspects that unregistered brokers manipulate software to create losing trades, steal people’s money and their personal identity.

An unregistered broker is not a broker at all. They do not broker anything. Unregistered brokers, like The Canuck Method, just take people’s money.

Calling an unregistered broker a broker is misleading. It’s like calling a drug dealer an unregistered pharmacist.

If you sign up for The Canuck Method, you will be assigned a personal financial advisor who will lie to you until you to give them your money. And they will manipulate the software to trick you into giving them more money.

I assure you, you will not make money with The Canuck Method. You will lose money and possibly go into debt.

  1. Thank you so much Gary, I was going through Review after review concerning this Method, and was about to fund my account.

    Do you have an idea about BinBot Pro robot? can you please advise on that.

    1. Hi, Tshepo!

      I’m glad you found my review of The Canuck Method Method before you funded your account. If they have your phone number, you will be bombarded with telemarketers trying to sell you similar scams. None of them will help you.

      BinBot Pro is very similar to The Canuck Method. You will not make money with BinBot Pro. You will lose money. Read the disclaimer at the bottom of the BinBot Pro website and you will see that they are not what they pretend to be.

      Tshepo, there is no such thing as auto-trading software that will make you money. They are all designed to TAKE your money.

      If you have money to invest, I strongly recommend you learn value investing. Value investing is the strategy the most successful investors use. Warren Buffet built his billion dollar empire with value investing. Amazon has several good books on value investing and Udemy has some excellent courses on value investing too.

      If you don’t have money to invest, I recommend you build an online business. Then, when it is making money, invest it using the value investing strategy. My friends and I would be happy to help you build a profitable online business. Go here to read more about us and how we can help you.

  2. On 9/19/26 H. L. Mencken made a quote concerning the lack of economic penalties from underestimating the intelligence of the masses.

    I can’t post the actual quote because it stops this post from being unique. But you can see the actual quote on Wikiquote. Search for Mencken and underestimating

    Since then the quote has been paraphrased, shortened and attributed to others, like P. T. Barnum

    The old scams get reinvented and recycled for new generations. Snake oil salesmen now sell radical new weight loss supplements. Chain letters have become “Please share this” FaceBook posts.

    1. Hi, ChazzBrown!

      You have brightened my day. Thanks for referring me to the H.L. Mencken quote. While I searched for it, I found several others that cracked me up. The quote you referred is too good not to include in this discussion.

      “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.” H. L. Mencken

      Sad, but true. The Canuck Method is a case in point, but there are so many others.

      Your insight into old scams and chain letters is enlightening. Thank you.

  3. Thanks Gary,

    I’m a bit of a cynical person by nature. I probably pass on legitimate opportunities because I’ve been approached with illegitimate so often I question everything.
    It’s a shame that so many people get taken advantage of but thanks to people like you, the list of possible victims hopefully gets smaller.



    1. Hi, Eric!

      To me, the Canuck Method looks like an obvious scam, but it does target many psychological triggers. For someone like you who is conditioned to have a healthy degree of skepticism, you can see the scam too. It might even seem funny.

      Unfortunately, many people are not prepared for the cleverness of these types of scams. While the internet is well established in the west, elsewhere it is still brand new with an air of mystery. Some people might think since the internet can communicate instantly around the world, why can’t it make thousands of dollars a day on autopilot?

  4. I really can’t phathom how these people even exist. Some scammers even use trusted and credible people’s photos to scam other people. Hope that more and more people will create more honest reviews like this to really fight those bad doings. But to really stop this, people should be aware that making money online is impossible to happen overnight. In fact, you need tons of hard work and patience to create a steady income in this industry. Only a small percentage also make millions. Pouring in cash while sleeping is just a product of years of putting in the work.

    1. Hi, Win!

      It seems few people realize, as you mentioned, that making money online is very much like making money off line. First you have to offer the market place something of value. Then it takes time to get established and for people to trust you.

      Making money with something like The Canuck Method is just wishful thinking. Unfortunately, falling for the Canuck Method BS story can be a very expensive mistake.

  5. Wow!! I had this eerie feeling of familiarity when I started reading this article. Then I realised sometime last year I came across this scam. I was intrigued by the method of trying to draw people in with such strong rhetoric, and I know I shouldn’t have, but I wanted to see where it was going, so I listened to the end and clicked on the sign up button. Up until the end of the video there was still no mention of what it was all about.

    A page came up asking for details. I gave my details (mostly false) but I gave them an old email address and an old cell phone number. Then I went to the next page where it talked about binary trading and paying $250 to open an account. Of course I shut it down and didn’t go any further with it.

    The next day I got a call from a woman who sounded european. She said, ‘How are you today?’ I think I grunted something back like ‘What do you want?’ She reminded me that I had signed up to their website. I told her I was no longer interested. To cut a long story short, I put the phone down while she was in mid sentence, and she had the nerve to call me back, TWICE. I ended up switching the phone off and blocking her number. For the next three days I was bombarded with phone calls and text messages from unknown numbers until I decided to change my number. I blocked one or two emails from them as well, and that was the end of it.

    My intention was never to hand over any money. I just wanted to see how far they would go. I’m glad you’re exposing them for what they are, and it’s unfortunate that people do actually fall for these kind of scams.

    1. Hi, Rose!

      Thanks for sharing your personal experience with the Canuck Method. Nearly every binary option scam I’ve come across is just as you mention. There’s a reason these guys want your information. This is a very expensive scam and they stand to make a lot of money if they can get you to buy in.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  6. Thanks for writing this review on this so called Canuck Method. Honestly I’ve never heard of it until reading your post. But even still I think I would have stayed away from it right off the bat because of the claims of fast money with little work. That’s always a sign you’re about to deal with some BS. You definitely helped confirmed that by laying out the actor and the fine print information. Most people wouldn’t even spot that. So I appreciate you sharing it!

    1. Hi, Eddy!

      The entire Canuck Method song and dance is about making someone feel so greedy to make fast easy money that they don’t think to read the disclaimer or do a little research. You’re right, of course, there is no free lunch and to think so only leads to poor choices.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  7. Can only hope that people research and read your article before being hoodwinked into joining a scam. You provide a comprehensive list of reasons why this is a scam. The video is short but informative. The content of your article gives readers the opportunity to make serious considerations for themselves. I am still early in training; the opportunity offered by WA is incredible.

    1. Hi, TaniaHersels!

      The Canuck Method is outrageous in its dishonesty. Nothing about it is real. I wish there was a magic button that would make me rich, but your know there isn’t.

      Making money takes effort, but thanks to the internet our effort can be leverages a million times. It comes down to bringing value to the marketplace, in other words, helping people. This is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches. I’m glad you found our community and look forward to your success.

  8. Hi Gary,

    There are so many scams to watch out for online. This one definitely fits the profile of scam. I am so happy you are alerting others. So many think it’s that simple to earn money online. You have to indeed find the right company. Your solution seems like a real winner! Thanks for sharing the scam, and sticking a picture with the scams!

    1. Hi, Lady-Val!

      The Canuck Method is not original, but it’s still a dangerous scam. I think the power behind it is the story. Who wouldn’t want to make lots of money fast with magical software? I wish it were true. We could all be millionaires and never have to work.

  9. I am a firm believer in no comment being the best negative comment;I am surprised so much energy was spent on a scam when you are offering a wonderful Platform as WA on the same page. when i saw owner cannot be found a huge red flag went up; separate the angels from the devil.Do you ever get feedback from the scammers when you write a review about them? Hats off to WA.

    1. Hi, Courtney!

      It is my hope that my review of scams like The Canuck Method will save people from making a huge mistake and at the same time introduce them to a legitimate path to making money online. I agree, it does seem unholy to have a scam on the same page as Wealthy Affiliate, but I don’t know any other way to do it.

      You asked if I’m ever contacted by the scammers I write about. In the past two years I’ve been contact by only two scammers. Both tried several ways to convince me to go easy on them. First they try the nice approach and explain how they have a family feed, but they fail to realize the people they are scamming also have families to feed. Then, they will usually threaten me with a lawsuit. I know the last thing they want is for someone to look closely at their operation. After that, they leave me alone.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  10. Wow. It really seems like this kind of practice should be illegal. So many people will miss the fine print and go all in on something thinking they’ve found the score of the century and a guy who’s going to guarantee them ten grand for spending only $250.

    Thanks for making this way more transparent. You’re great at this.

    1. Hi, Eric!

      The Canuck Method is a tired scam, but it must still be trapping people because it won’t go away. Thanks for your kind words. I live to expose scams.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  11. Hi Gary

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Glad I read this because I have not come across this opportunity yet. I’m sure he has conned many people and that’s probably his only source of income. Problem is people actually fall for these scams and the scammers make their money, if their cover gets blown they just come up with a new scam and/or identity..

    Surely there must be a more effective way to stop these scammers?

    Kind regards,

    1. Hi, Kamil!

      The Canuck Method is a bad one for sure. I hate to think of the people who’s lives and finances have been wrecked by these heartless scammers. Unfortunately, technology makes it easy for a scammer to start over. The FTC can’t keep up with them and most of them operate from countries with no regulation.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  12. Hello Gary,
    I’ve heard of some of these methods, but not for Canuck method. The times I’ve been cheated, that I at one time thought that the entire Internet is one big scam. But you’re right. The job is the same as it always is: learn a trade, start working, the more you learn and what you are better at your jobs and wages rising. Not yet invented to deal with three clicks earn $ 10,000. I’m sure it will never be.

    1. Hi, JelenaBB!

      The Canuck Method is just a tired, retreaded binary options scam that apparently is making somebody a lot of money, unfortunately at the expense of the innocent.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  13. I’m so sick of scams. It’s hard to trust any type of program or system found on-line. It seems easy for people to make videos and systems that seem plausible all in a way to get your money. I hadn’t personally heard of the ones you listed but I do now at least. Thanks for exposing them for what they are – fakes!

    1. Hi, Michelle!

      I’m with you. I’m so sick of scams too. The Canuck Method scam is a cookie cutter website. And, yes, it’s easy to churn out a scam site that looks reputable and then flood it with traffic. The law of large numbers takes over and for every thousand visitors to the scam site a handful will believe the video and sign up. Then the telemarketers go to work on them until they squeeze out every nickel. There is no telling how many lives are ruined.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  14. You have done very well on your site I hope that I can do mine so well when its all said and done. I love the content and quite honestly feel i learned a great deal while reading it. Some of the programs mentioned ihave heard of some i have not but glad to learn all I can when it come to scammers out there I to have fallen into the trap as I find myself out of work at the moment and am trying Wa to offset my predicament hope to soon be able to bring in that income. I further more picked up some other tactics I hope to implement on my site. I know Wa wants positive and negative feedback but i think you’ve done well if there is negativity on it I haven;t seen it

    1. Hi, Bob!

      I appreciate your kind words. My website has been a labor of love and has evolved over two years. In the beginning I stumbled quite a bit.

      I’m glad you learned something from my post on the Canuck Method. In my eight years of internet marketing, I have never found anything better than Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone who will go through the training and apply what they learn can succeed.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  15. Wow. I’ve come across all types of online scams but after reading this review, the Canuck Method takes the cake. There are some basic red flags I look out for such as not having a clearly defined product creator, outrageous promises, and expensive upsells.

    I’m so glad that you were able to discover what a sham it all really is by pointing out how they’ve used the same actor for their other scammy websites.

    It is unfortunate that websites like these exist. However, thanks to honest reviews like yours, some people will become aware and avoid losing their money and identity to these scammers.

    1. Hi, Eartha!

      Unfortunately, The Canuck Method is not the worse scam I’ve found, but it’s plenty bad. It’s one of those scams that hurts so much people rarely admit to getting taken by it. These kinds of binary options trading scams are known for destroying people’s lives.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  16. Thanks Gary for sharing this.
    I do not blame those behind all these scams. I mean how on earth can someone fall for things like this? It’s so cheap and obvious that it is no good and will only cause pains. People don’t still get it that there are no free money anywhere and you will have to work for it.
    Keep up the good work Gary. We need more people like you to expose all these frauds.

    1. Hi, Aigbefo!

      I know what you mean. It’s hard to imagine why someone would fall for a scam like The Canuck Method, but apparently they do in large numbers. I’m continually trying to understand why someone would believe the nonsense these scams spit out, but then I go to WalMart and understand perfectly.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  17. Wow. I had no idea that all of those different ‘methods’ used actors! And to use so many of the same actors again just seems like a blatant slap in the face. Thank you for exposing these scams! So many people lose their money to scam artists every day! All we want is a legit way to make money. I’m very interested in your recommendation!

    1. Hi, Nicki!

      Yes, indeed, they use actors. According to FTC regulations, it’s okay to use actors to dramatize a testimonial if there is documentation that the testimony is true and unsolicited. However, it is illegal to hire an actor to spout a lie.

      Unfortunately, the FTC is beyond overwhelmed with scams like The Canuck Method. Plus, the bad guys behind these scams are probably in another country far from anyone who would care to prosecute them.

      I’m hopeful that as the internet matures, people will learn to spot scams from a distance and to protect themselves. My mother has been scammed twice in the last year. She’s 87 and is beginning to suffer mental decline. The search engines could refuse to index scam sites, but for some reason they don’t.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  18. Thanks for sharing this Gary.

    It is amusing in a way to see so many similar programs, from singapore to aussie, it is ridiculous. Their scam is actually pretty stupid as well, hiring the same guy for each of it.

    These kinds of scams are the worse with their false promises and what they do is in my opinion stealing. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t know about registered or unregistered brokers (me until I read your post) so they might fall for this. I do hope your post reaches them before they are scammed !

    1. Hi, Lucas!

      I’m guessing that the “Method” theme for these scams were successful at first and the person behind them ran with the concept. I’ve found more than a dozen so far that look almost identical to The Canuck Method. You would think this scammer is trying to take over the world.

      However, just this morning I found a “Method” scam website that looked completely different. It had new actors too, BUT the same script!

      Thanks for stopping by,


  19. Really?
    This guy again….. you’ve got to commend him on his persistence. Just a shame he can’t funnel that into something a little more productive.

    I’m always weary of any method that ask’s for cash upfront with claims of great ritches but I guess there are people out there that are still very trusting, your word is your bond kind of thing. What a different world we live in.

    Anyway, enough rambling. Another excellent article. Hopefully people see this before investing.


    1. Hi, Mark!

      I agree. The genius behind The Canuck Method is trying to take over the world, scam by scam.

      I’m always trying to understand the person who falls for these sorts of online scams, but just yesterday I learned my mother had recently been scammed through her computer. This is the second time in the last 12 months.

      My mother is 87 and has been a devote Southern Baptist all her life. She is incapable of imagining anyone would cheat her. Her mind just does not go there. It’s like she is living in Pleasantville. I guess there are millions of people like my mother out there and The Canuck Method scammer is out to rob them all.
