Leadnetpro is a useless product. I got ripped off because it was misrepresented to me by Mac Lantrip
of Eustice Florida. I paid $97 to leadnetpro and $300 to Mac Lantrip via Angela Lantrip both through Paypal. Shame on me. Mac Lantrip told me how he made $10,000 in the last 30 days. Got me excited.
But once I got the product the excited ended immediately. He told me there were two ways to make money with this software. One is to sell it to other people who want to make money selling it to other people. The other was to actually use the product with it's marketing abilities using voice broadcasting.
He told me that his other business is real estate and he was generating two listings per week using leadnetpro. He told me that the extractor would go into company websites and pull the contact information for people who were searching companies in their area for those services. In other words consumer information. I find this doubtful because he said that the software would go into interent and extract people phone #s and emails. It does extract phone#s and emails but they are only businesses. So if you know anything about voice broadcasting you know it doesn't work well with businesses. The emails are limited and will only get me listed as a spammer. Not good. As far as real estate listings-no way.

So, unless you like ripping people off of there hard earned money, don't buy leadnetpro. It's a scam.

Leadnetpro is only for business to business marketing. It's waste of money. that's why they have a strict no refund policy.

Lets clear the air..

AUTHOR: Rich - (USA)

But you have given written permission and that's the loophole..I agree, there are those that abuse the system, but the truth is, it's a very valuable marketing tool and most cost effective for promoting ANY type of business to business relationships.. general consumers excluded.. that would violate the FTC laws..

However for a existing business venture, the ftc dnc and i believe fcc rulings don't even apply.. you need to ask them politely to take them off their list since you already established the business relationship.. I believe the only juridication may cover certain durable items

If someone is looking to establish solid business relationships, lead net pro is a outstanding promotional tool.. but definitely if someone who has established the business relationship reconsiders, most definitely abid by their wishes. If someone really has a interesting message and a outstanding service, it's outstanding to gain much interest.

Certain other sectors are exempt.. it's all explained in the ftc and I believe fcc
rulings.. which clearly states someone who has not establish a relationship
cannot be contacted and must be dnc complaint.  However businesses are excluded
and once it's written on the internet, you have established a business relationship  :)

But I agree, if somone who established the business relationships wants to be off
the list, that's common respect.

In that you must "Sell it to some other sucker" to make it work.

From the Other Side of the Leadnet Pro System

AUTHOR: Zoira - (United States of America)

I am a business owner with a toll free number that received mutiple "robo-calls" a week. 

Several times I have selected the option to contact the person/company generating the automated call.  I have found that they have purchased the Leadnet Pro Software and were assured by Dan Miller or another company representative that collecting phone numbers from the internet for these types of automated calls was perfectly legal.

In fact, according to FTC regulations, unless you have an existing business relationship or fall under several other limited exclusion clauses, you MUST obtain written permission from the owner of the number before you can legally make these types of calls.

Further, these types of calls cannot be made to numbers for which the owner of the number will incur a charge for the call.  Like a toll free number - for which owners pay "per minute" charge.

Researching the issue again today I believe I also discovered why my spam volume has increased so dramatically to my business e-mail address.  Until today I was unaware that Leadnet Pro is also advocating collecting e-mail addresses for mass distribution of unsolicited e-mails.

This company (Leadnet Pro) needs to be STOPPED.  People purchasing this software are completely unaware that by using it as promoted by Leadnet Pro and its representatives are opening themselves up to the wrath of the FTC.  I have already filed 2 complaints myself for these "robo-calls" to my toll free number - but I don't have time to file another complaint every time I get another call from another poor, unsuspecting individual who has bought into the Leadnet Pro pitch.

For the FTC's policy about automated calls please see:  http://business.ftc.gov/documents/bus27-complying-telemarketing-sales-rule#prerecordedmessages

Perhaps if more of us were to file complaints with the FTC over these types of calls someone would begin to investigate the company and perhaps shut it down.
