COme on people. You can't be that stupid. It's your money. Why wouyld taking a second loan help you pay off your first sooner - unless you pay MORE? Just pay more on your primary loan and save the $29 (for the book).

If it's too good to be true, it is. That author is just trying to sell his books. Infomercials must not be too expensive. or too many gullible (desperados?) people buying his books. The miracle workers are always charlatan. If they were not, they would have used their power to fix stuff. If not, they should be considered as criminals. Anti-social.

I'm wondering what others are thinking about this new book.

I ordered the book for 29.99 plus shipping and handling. The charge to my credit card was $99.99. Why? They send you a "free" software that actually costs $69.99 for five months unless you send back the software within 30 days. I didn't order the software in the first place. They just send it to you. This is a SCAM. Beware. Oh, and the book is pretty complicated and difficult to read. But it taught me a lesson to be more cautious of informercials and TV scams.

gotta love that free market...this is when the "freedom to do anything that doesn't hurt another" get's pushed to it's limit, how hurt is a dummy who loses from an infomercial, how hurt is a mugging victim, or an already "experienced" rape victim...how hurt is the office building the dummy walks into gunning people down (assuming he could ever find their call center, he would probably just have to go take out the tv execs for allowing such crap) yes I do support accountablity (we have a wonderful court system that is based on how much money you can afford to pay your lawyer to do the judging for us) but I also support freedom, could this treatment drive some insomniac crazy? Definitely. Not that I am suggesting that someone should go perform unnecessary amputations on this guys family members, but if you are bored and want 5 seconds of fame, why not?

By just "paying more" on your primary loan, there's two big negatives. First, you have to have a significant amount of extra income to do it with in order to make any real difference. Second, you're limited by the extra amount you're paying it with.
So if you're just too cheap to buy a book that explains a few key steps... who is the stupid one here?

Lets see.. Borrow money to get out of debt. Thats almost as stupid as spend your way to wealth. Yes, I understand the concept but still dont think its a good idea. Of course I also think its stupid to pay a fee for your mortgage holder to set up Bi-weekly payments.. Duh just make principal payments on your own. With messed up house values the HELOC thing will bite you in the rear and you will have more debt.

I loved this book and its not that difficult to read. Plus the company calls you on the 17th day and asks you if you are planning to keep the software which is $400.00 But you can make monthly payments of $69.99 until the 400 is paid for. Great information and it has helped me alot we started 1 year ago and it has worked for me. My Parents have also started using the program and love it they have paid down alot of there debt because of this program it is worth everything they want for it. For those of you who think the book is hard to read maybe a 2nd or 3rd time reading it will help you understand it...

I figured out from the infomercial they were suggesting taking out another loan. It was pretty obvious from the promoter's comments. All these infomercials are a scam. If it's on TV, you can bet it will be a scam and cost 10 times what is advertised! Positive postings are clearly made by the promoters. No need to respond to this posting. I'm not in the idiot category.

Perhaps the only people who are posting are the people who are not happy with the product. If so, that is not very many people considering how many people may have purchased the book.

Works for the U.S. Government, why won't it work for me?

I saw the infomercial, and was very curious. God Bless the Internet! Thanks for keeping me from getting snookered by this con artist. Honestly, it just boggled my mind to how you could get out of debt without paying extra payments or extra on principal. Like I said, works for the government... This guy must have taken lessons on Capital Hill.

BTW, Once I ordered online the topsy-turvy tomato planter. I couldn't figure out from the wording if for the B1G1 you needed to select one or two to get the free one. Turns out there is not an option for the free one, you get two no matter what. Then there was some option I elected to get. There was no total to view until AFTER the order was placed. Turns out I was getting sent four of them @ 9.99 each + shipping and $10 option times four, but to this day I can't figure out how the total came to $162. That's $40.50 each. I had to threaten reporting them to the Better Business Bureau to get them to take them back. They sell them in Home Depot for $9.99. Any TV offer you can get locally, don't order from TV or Internet!

Specify on each mortgage pyment how much extra you want applied to principal. Avoid the HELOC. Pay down your highest cc 's first. Then put the cc away. Do not close the cc account as you want the highest FICO score possible. Eliminate all cc debt as quickly as possible. Plus, if the cc is charging you 12 to 18% then you are makng that % by paying off cc debt. Use only 1 cc. Whichever you prefer and pay the entire balance due every month. Never carry a cc balance. If you know you cannot pay the entire balance due when the bill arrives then you must learn to wait on certain purchases. Once again, never carry cc balances.

DO NOT ORDER THE CD 30 DAYS FREE TRIAL...IT'S NOT FREE TRAIL AND IT'S A SCAM. I called to cancel within 30 days and they stated I was too late and told me they will give me a discount price of 4 payments of $79.99. I notice they charged me an extra payment so I called and talked to a manager Stephanie and she stated I declined the discount price, so they charged me the 5 payments of $79.99. I stated to her no one in their right mind would decline the discount prices and she stated and kept on stating "I can not judge you maam" AND THAT'S ALL SHE SAID THROUGH OUT OUR CONVERSATION...SO I GOT FRUSTRATED AND START CUSSING HER OUT!! She hung up on me. I CALLED BACK FOR THE ADDRESS FOR THE CEO OR PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY...SHE GAVE ME THE ADDRESS ATTENTION TO HER. SCAM!!! SCAM!!! DO NOT ORDER THE CD FOR THE FREE TRIAL, THEY WILL CHARGE YOU THE FULL AMOUNT EVEN IF YOU CANCEL WITHIN THE 30 DAYS.
