IPA-IBA & IPA A&I figures out how much cash you have immediately available, then finds a way to take it Buffalo Grove Illinois

A humorous prose as it pertains to their promise of "selling your business".

The procedure - in a twisted and incredibly dishonest way - is actually brilliant. Their objective is quite simple: determine how much cash is immediately available and talk you into handing it to them - that's it!

The phone call - for few hundred we'll look at your books and present a proposal with a plan to sell your business within the next few months.

The proposal and subsequent promise - there is high demand in your industry - it will cost you X thousand up front to prepare the documents and determine the true value of your company. Don't worry, the upfront money will be credited against our commission/fee for selling it which is typically 5% of sales price. One month, we'll have the documents in place in you will be on the market. The sooner it's sold the more profit both you and I make. Can I see a draft of the agreement between you and I - "Oh, no, each one is unique". Makes sense, lets go.

The agreement document - Holy S!!!, I can't agree to those terms, are they even legal? Can we change articles 1,5, 7, 9, etc? "Oh, no, this is the standard document..."But wait, what about the money already paid that was to be credited against your sales fee and how did 5% become 10%? "We are a different entity than the group you dealt with before and this is our standard contract and these are our standard terms - now lets make some money" WAIT - I need my attorney to look at this - "our attorneys have already looked at it and if we get legal involved we'll be months and your buyers will have moved on. But, what about the 5% vs 10% and the upfron...."wait - I got a buyer on the line - quick sign it and fax it back"

Anyone thinking seriously of working with this company still? At least do yourself a favor then - INVEST IN A LARGE JAR OF VASOLINE FIRST - cuz when they are done with you, you will be walking kinda funny - at least it won't hurt as much while they are "doing it to you"!!
