Beware of this Steve Rhodes guy. His advice is very limited to dated knowledge. I'm guessing he knows this because his activities to get people to visit his site are very shady at best.
First of all, he CLAIMS to get you out of debt for free yet he has Google ads all over his site. His advice will push you to clicking on those ads so he can get paid. On the other end are his affiliations that will then charge you for their services.
Before I get too deep into this you have to see this site:
This guy is obsessed with trying to be the next Dave Ramsey.
So much so that he only delivers bad press about other companies to try and get other to visit his site and click on his ads.
For example, he will sign up for your company newsletter and then go as far as to write articles on his own site criticizing your newsletter. Correct me if I'm wrong but if you are sending an email out to your own private list then who cares how you do your marketing?
This guy does. According to his website he seems to stick with mostly services in the finance industry.
So, he will sign up for your company newsletter and then begin to post an article on his own site about your company and what you say to your own customers and prospects. In some cases the only proof he claims to show people about a company is the actual company newsletter that was sent to him from signing up on your list.
He NEVER has actually used your service so he's basing his articles on smoke and mirrors.
Again he CLAIMS it will be submitted by another user but we all know the truth on that statement. The only people who follow this guy are the ones that are just as clueless as he is or are getting paid to do so.
He never brings hard testimonials from any company about their service either.
He writes ONLY negative press about your company because he somehow thinks that Dave Ramsey or someone like him may pick up his news one day and tell him how great he is at slamming other companies WITHOUT PROOF!
Good luck on that one Steve Rhodes.
Steve Rhodes is clearly an idiot when it comes to finance and is only out for personal gain.
He slams a number of companies on his website that I know for a fact are honest companies with great reputations.
His website sounds like he took a bunch of information all around the net and compiled it into one little spot and then said, "Hey, I'm Steve Rhodes and I'm now an expert!"
Right....an expert at slamming good honest companies reputations.
Oh and by the way, DON'T be stupid and contribute anything to his "Legal Fund" as he calls it. As with any opinion his site is protected by certain laws anyway so any money you may donate just goes into his pocket.
THIS GUY IS A COMPLETE SCAM....
GETOUTOFDEBT.org IS A COMPLETE SCAM!
BEWARE of any of his advice. Don't listen to anything this guy has to say.
All of his advice is hearsay and he often pays other to back him up and submit argument son his own website.
If you are thinking about using a company that he's slamming on his site then my advice would be to do other research on the company beforehand but don't take his advice.
Chances are anything he says about any company is completely false or misleading. He is known to fake tons of documents.
Whatever company you are thinking about dealing with do other research on that company first.
DON'T listen to what this guy says.
