===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
===================== INTERNATIONAL PROFIT ASSOCIATES, IPA-IBA-ITA, INTEGRATED BUSINESS ANALYSIS, BIZ-DOCTOR, Very High Pressure Scam Artists. They swoop in offering help and then Take you for $470.00 per hour, for nothing in return. BEWARE Buffalo Grove Illinois
International Profit Associates got me too. I see that the BBB has had 450 reports on them in thne last 36 months. IPA called offering me a free consultation, which turned into a consultant coming to do a detailed business analysis at "$500.00, (normally $750.00) I was told on the phone , because they "happened" to have a consultant in my area.
She showed up and sat and talked with me for about an hour, and by capitalizing on my concerns, and fast talking me into thinking I was about to go out of business, She left here with me thinking they really could help me.
The very next business day two people showed up with laptops and portable printers and started talking and clicking away, getting me to give them all my financial information. by that night I knew this was not right, they were overpriced at best.
The next morning when I called them on it , and they said I was up to $3,000.00 plus expenses for the prior day. I expressed my concerns. They assured me that by noon I would see the value of their "Project Plan".
I told them at noon when they handed us a 4 page report of what I needed to do... completely obvious and useless information, that they gleened from my conversation and my financials, that I need to put the project on hold to review their reports. They totally freaked out and freaked out even more when I wanted an advisor to sit in. Well when I told them I needed to "stop the clock" and look over what they had done so far, they dropped a bill for $7359.20, on my desk and said it was due and payable.
I was in shock and told them so. they did not care that I was already overdrawn and my credit cards were full "except for about $7000.00", Imagine That. I did not know how to get rid of them. So I foolishly Wrote them a check , thenthey left quickly. I was so shocked and embarrassed that I went and stopped payment on the check, because they did not leave me any of the paper work or a receipt, or invoice or return my information that they now have in their hard-drive including all of my credit card numbers, bank account numbers, financial reports, vendor lists and balances, AR figures, and everything.
I think I should have stopped payment on the Original $500.00 dollar check too, for the consultant that did not do anything but scare me into hiring them.
There are many more reports on them here on this web-site, and they all sound a lot like my experience with them. They are Crooks and Scam artists BEWARE BEWARE
