Meet the Scam Specialist - Kevin Trudeau
When most people think about Kevin Trudeau, they think scam artist. Well, he has released a new book called Debt Cures. I expect this one to be just as controversial as his previous 'cures' books. I don't believe him and i will advice you the same. He says he can help you cure your debt problems. Many of us are in debt or know someone who is so we are all ears when we hear something about getting us out of debt. But can you trust anything from Kevin Trudeau anymore?
Knowing all this, why would anyone even consider buying a book on how to get out of debt from a former scammer? Is this just another one of his scams? If this book can give me just one tip to help lower my interest rate or waive a late fee or over the credit limit fee then it will be worth it. But i was so very wrong.
As far as the free money that Kevin Trudeau talks about so much in the infomercial, I will still be skeptical about that one. Why would the government give me free money to pay my bills? They do give money to people that are going to use it to help other people - teaching literacy, starting businesses, etc. But not giving away free grant money just so you can make your credit card payments for stuff you probably should not have bought in the first place.
In the last commercial, he promises to help you reduce your credit card payments, lower your interest rates, get you access to some free government money, help you avoid bankruptcy, and eliminate some of your debts. How does that sound? Would you be interested?
Seeing as more and more people are having debt and credit problems lately, and the banks and credit card companies are raising interest rates on us all the time for no good reason, this book should appeal to millions of people. I should know, I'm one of them. I bought Debt Cures back in the end of 2007.
I want to get out of debt just like most people. I know I don't like having to worry about having enough money each month to pay all my bills, especially my credit card bills. I don't want my credit score to go down because I made one late payment after 24 or 36 on time credit card payments.
Kevin Trudeau hits on all of our fears about debt and promises to give us all the answers we need inside his Debt Cures book. The book does have some useful information about credit and debt. The convenience of having it all here compiled in one book will save you time and energy searching for it all over the internet or at your local library.
The good thing about Debt Cures, or any other personal finance book is that you can easily compare the costs versus the benefits of spending $30 or $40 on a book like this.
The average American has over $6,000 in credit card debt. At a minimum payment of 2%, or $300 a month, you could save hundreds each year in lower interest charges and late fees and other fees the credit card companies like to add on to your bill.
If you're on the fence about buying this book because of Trudeau reputation, then again, I would recommend not buying it directly from him. Having read the book, there is not much in it that would cause you to worry about getting into any legal trouble by applying some of his debt reduction methods. He is not the first to write about them.
If you want to get out of debt, like millions of other people, Kevin Trudeau has delivered a worthwhile book to provide you with some much needed help.
