Debt Cures / Rip off

Fresh off another round of arguments over our debt and financing, what to my wondering eyes should appear on our TV but the smiling face of Kevin Trudeau hawking his Debt Cures program. Like an idiot, I bought it - and I let the woman on his order line talk me into the 'Debt Cures Deluxe Package' of additional material on 10 CDs as well. The cost of all this was $29.95 for the book, $99.00 for the CDs (a value of something like $400, so she said) and $21.90 for shipping and handling.

Contrary to what I was told on the phone, everything arrived in a week as opposed to 3 or 4 weeks. I have a long commute to work, so I figured I'd listen to the additional materials as I drove and read the book at home. First problem - the CDs come in a chintzy paper sleeve that rips as soon as you try to put a CD back into it. I know - all of the CDs fell out when I opened it. When I put the first CD in the player, guess what? The CDs are of him reading the book!

All right, I figure, I'll hear him out. It was a comprehensive waste of time. Probably 80% of the content is him ranting and raving about how credit card debt is entirely the fault of the credit card companies - after his salesperson talked me into wasting $150 on this rot. Most of the rest applies only to people who are being harassed about debt that has already been written off, and the little bit that did apply to us was readily available elsewhere with a little effort. To top it off, the CD of 'bonus material' was nothing but him summarizing the other nine CDs.

Here's a quick, easy and simple 'debt cure' - don't go into debt buying garbage like this.

    I purchased Debt Cures and found no content worth reading, no concrete sources as promised. I asked how to return the book, they gave me instructions, but no "pay for return" label, and I refuse to pay the postage to return the book, especially after seeing other negative comments. I'm afraid I won't even get my money back. My attempts to contact them about this are not successful. I'm worried! -On a fixed income and cannot afford the book. Can't even pay my utilities this month! I'm 67 . This is a true hardship for me.

    Is there somewhere to get help?
    Thank you for any information.

    FYI, the 10 CD were a FREE gift for signing up for the newsletter,

    the $ 99.00 is for the Deluxe package of the Fast Track for free money and the CD for the letters to send to the creditors which are already written and you just have to fill in the addresses of the creditors and a one on one counseling.

    So you are not understanding what you got in the first place.

    My husband and I purchased the books and didn't really get a clear picture on what the books would do for us. Also I cancelled the newsletter within the 30 days of purchase which was in December of 2008. But to our surprise we were being charged $10.87 per month. We have never received a newsletter and I had to call again to cancel the subscription. Even after speaking to their customer service department, they refused to let me talk to a supervisor, stating that she was not in the office today. Who ever reads this please DO NOT PURCHASE anything from Debt Curses...IT IS A SCAM.

    That's a load of horse crap - what do you mean "So you are not understanding what you got in the first place" you stupid little twit - We ordered it as well and NEVER were we told it would be an extra $99 and Im sure you know why - because NO ONE would order it. I filed a complaint w the BBB & let them know that when I asked the customer service rep if she knew this was a scam and asked her how she felt working for such a company knowing full well their business practices - her response was and I quote "I have to pay bills & make money just like you do" I kid you not! So not only is the owner a douche bag - but so are the employees.

    I disputed the charges and the bank refunded my money

    I sure do agree with you. This is a BIG rip-off. Don't buy the book. Just like on the TV ads, this guy talks too much and has nothing to share that is worth the money you pay.

    I purchased one of Kevin Trudeau's original Debt Cures books about 3 yrs ago and continue to be charged for a news letter which I do not want and did not ask for. I have tried numerous emails to stop these charges with no luck . How can I get these charges to stop?
