Information Brokerage Services--Need Info

Hi all--Like most of you, I'm looking for a legit way to make a decent income from home. I received materials today from Information Brokerage Services, Inc. I researched a lot on the 'net and can't find anything awful about this company. BBB gives them an A-. I can't find a bad report on ripoffreport.com, either.

A "William Bradford" has signed the letter. Essentially, this company is offering a free way, after the return of an initial deposit of $76.95, to get into the biweekly mortgage payment business, designed to save substantial amounts on customers' mortgages. It looks like there is real, legit money to be made here, and I'm thinking seriously of hunkering down and sending the deposit in a few weeks, and giving this a go. The letter says we'll be shown ways for free advertising, and a website will be provided, etc.

I read a lot of the older posts (on here) about this company, and I'm wondering what you folks think now. I think it's a very good sign that the BBB gave them a good rating.

I'd appreciate anybody who has recent knowledge about this opportunity to share it. Like you, I can't afford to get ripped off, but I can't afford to miss any legit business opportunities, either. God bless.

Re: Information Brokerage Services--Need Info

if it was a way to make lots of money he would be really busy doing it instead of trying to sell it to you for $80. it's not a secret - for accounts where interst is calculated daily, moke payments more often will save interest charges. apparently this guy wants to charge you to sell the secret that isn't a secret?

the secret is: if he can get 1000 fools to send him $80 that's $80,000 in his pocket. yes, it a way to make money, for him, not you.

Yes, I'm aware that biweekly payments pay down a loan faster. Of course, it's no secret, but people don't always think, and sometimes may not consider making multiple payments.

At any rate, I'm still researching this and other opportunities. Surely there's something out there legit.

I do wonder, though, how this company has an A- rating with the BBB. That surprised me.

Sounds like they tell you post little ads and spam forums with links to your website. When no one clicks on your link to see your website, they will tell you to buy google adwords and pay for advertising to drive traffic to your site. Up-sells, pricey add-ons, premiums packages, mentoring, advice and 'buying leads' will be touted as essential costs to get your website to make you money.

The website will be just like hundreds or thousands of other affiliate's sites, all not making money for the affiliate.

Yes, telling people about making a half mortgage payment ever other week instead of paying monthly is a good idea. Most mortgage company already offer that service.

Thanks, Meri Widow; that does put a different light on it. I think I'll keep looking.

Does anybody have ideas on real work at home programs? Just about everything either seems like a scam or turns out that way under examination. Something has to be real somewhere.

Re: Information Brokerage Services--Need Info

Hi Gospelsongbird..

Wondering.. did you ever join IBS and if so, how is it going.. worth it? ? I've received the info a few times the last few years, and just received it again this week (from Bradford.. but I think it had been signed by another individual in the previous sales letters?). I'm thinking of sending for it also. I know people can do their own mortgage acceleration (I send extra principle with every mortgage payment on my current house), but I know a lot of people do not have the discipline to do it consistantly every single month, which is why I think this could be a good program. Especially since the payment coincide with how a lot of people are paid (twice a month). Also, in doing a few searches on bi-weekly mort. programs, seems banks and other services do charge a lot to set it up, plus the fees. Thanks for any info you can provide!
