Do not buy Debt Cures from Kevin Trudeau until you read this. In a previous post, I pointed out some of the positive features of the latest get out of debt book. This post will point out some of the negative features of Debt Cures They Don’t Want You to Know About.
Before I do that, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who continue to post your comments. Those are much appreciated. Keep sending them in.
One of the main issues with Debt Cures is the whole ordering process. You have to call a telemarketing company and order the book. The representatives you have to speak to are paid to try and sell you more items when you call to order. They are just doing their job. I have nothing against them. I actually used to do that a long time ago.
So the first point is that if you want to order the book, order it online at debtcures.com
You’ll have a much easier buying experience and you will be sure of what you are ordering. You won’t have to worry about any hidden charges on your credit card bill. Because I am assuming you are going to order this book with your credit card. Ordering a book on getting out of debt with a credit card. Kind of ironic isn’t it? Someone also pointed this out as well. Lol.
Now, let me post some negative comments about Debt Cures that ya’ll have sent in. (Yes, I’m from Texas and I say “ya’ll.”)
Mary K. Anderson, thank you for sending this in:
“…So far I am not impressed with the repetition of the credit card information in the book, it is nothing we have not heard over and over. I was hoping for a book of knowledge that would give me some new help with credit card grant info. Most people do not want to help when it come to cards with cash advances and that is my situation. At this point, I am most likely going to take advantage of the 30 day return policy, who needs two disc. I was not informed they they were going to be $39.90 on my account. Full disclose, Mr. Trudeau, I believe you need to teach your telemarketers the law. Good Morning America and other television stations that helped promote your book will not be happy to know what is going on with the sale of this book. They pride themselves on promoting quality products and not people trying to sell you everything but the kitchen sink when you call to order. Especially when they do not disclose the full price…The price is excessive and I would now have ordered one let alone two if they were not included in the book…”
Thank you again for sending this in.
Scott sent in several good comments about his review of Debt Cures. Thank you Scott. Let me share part of one with you:
“Almost finished reading the book. Only about 20 pages left. To anyone that plans to get it, read it or have read it, let me tell you. I had 6 cards that I went through settlements with. And my wife had a large balance on a card that she was trying to deal with. I’ve been through it and I knew a lot of this stuff in the book. Let me tell you, none of this stuff is guranteed. You are at the mercy of the card companies, depending on how much of a balance you have and how bad they want that money.
Most will not negotiate with you.
Call them to simply lower your interest rates? Ha! That’s a good one. It didn’t work for me. You have no leverage once you’re buried in debt. Why should they? You can’t apply for a new card to transfer the balance.
Wait for the statute of limitations to run out? I’m saying in this day and age, in most states, you can forget about that option. In Illinois, it runs out in 5 YEARS! That’s a long damn time. I got away with not paying for 2 years as I was saving for settlements on my cards….but barely 2 years. Almost 2 years to the date, my card with the highest balance proceeded to sue me and I got a summons to go to court. My wife on the other hand, WAS TRYING to work with Discover through credit counseling and was paying large amounts each month. They weren’t happy with this amount and flat out refused to take it. They wanted more and so they weren’t paid for 2 *MONTHS*, because they refused the amount she was paying!! Which was over 200 dollars!! The THIRD month we got a knock on the door. Guess what? Court papers from Discover’s attorneys. You’re going to court to get a judgment. Kevin seems to conveniently leave out what they will actually do and then what you’re supposed to do. Think they’re afraid of going to court because of attorney’s fees? Hell no! Because they can stick YOU with them! LOL!
Then, what if your family doesn’t have the money to bail you out or doesn’t want to add your name on their card?
The book does not ‘completely’ deal with reality, IMO. But it doesn’t hurt to try I guess.”
Thank you again Scott for your comments.
Jenny offered her comments on Debt Cures, she has inside experience because she works for one of the telemarketing companies. She offers a few tips on dealing with KT. Thank you Jenny:
“As a current employee of a call center that takes calls for all of KTs products, believe me when I say most of us HATE taking his calls. The upsells are overboard and all his information you can find free on the internet. Or better yet, get it cheaper off of amazon or free from the library. He’s a crook and is being investigated by some states. He’s only out to get your money.
If you do decided to call and order, simply state “If you offer me anything else, I will cancel” Those are the magic words to get to the end of the call. That also goes with anything you buy from a commercial.”
The book is not available at Amazon yet but KT tells us that it will be. Thank you again Jenny.
I’ll end this post with one last word of warning from Sam. Thank you Sam for sending this in.
“WARNING!!!!!! This is a red flag! I ordered Trudeau’s Debt Cures in order to help get my life back on top and guess what? It didn’t work! Some of the stuff in the book, like getting that $10,000 dollars overnight- you are borrowing it from yourself IF you have stocks. There was only one good thing I learned from that book and it was the amount of time that the average person doesn’t know about write offs for debts ; ie after 4 years in California they write off the amount on whatever (Credit cards, etc.). I went to return the book and they sit on their butts and don’t get the refund to you when it is due! I waited two- three weeks for my refund to show up and it was only when i called that they refunded the amount and then i had to wait an ADDITIONAL three business days! In all honesty this confirmed my thoughts on paid programming; IT’S ALL A SCAM. Don’t buy this book, if you do a little research you can find out everything yourself.”
Thank you again Sam.
So after reading all these comments, should you buy Debt Cures? I have and have not regretted my purchase. It has some merit and is worth taking a look at even if you have to go through the hassle of ordering it over the phone.
Here’s another reason why I would still recommend it:
My wife purchased your book Debt Cures last month, and she wanted me to read it to see what we could do about our overwhelming credit card bills. I found the chapter that told us how we can talk to the companies and “ask” to lower the interest (apr) on the cards. Well it worked. Bank of America had a rate of 29.75 percent and they lowered it to 5.75% for 5 years. We also lowered the rates on 3 other cards we have….much lower than what we expected. Thank you “Debt Cures.”
It sure made Momma feel good…and me too!
Vendel & Gwen Jeffries”
That one phone call will save the Jeffries several thousand dollars in interest alone – all from buying KT’s book.
Thank you all for sending in your comments and reviews of Debt Cures. Keep them coming.
Have a great day!
