Marketer Kevin Trudeau is always selling something, and in 2009, it was his book “Debt Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About”, his follow-up to “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About.”
Some who bought the book claim it has almost no usable information that can’t be easily gleaned from other, free sources. But the overwhelming majority who have written to ConsumerAffairs.com complain about the aggressive sales tactics they encounter when buying the book over the phone.
“I bought a Kevin Trudeau book from TV,” Paula, of Susanville, Calif., said. “I am unemployed. He, and his group, keep sneaking $7-$40 charges on my unemployment debit card. I can’t even figure where some of the charges are coming from. The phone numbers are not good, or are never answered! I have no grocery money now because of $70 in the last month!”
The book costs $29.95 but Tom, of Butte, Mont., complains the shipping charges amounted to $33. He got off easy. Jacqueline, of York Springs, Pa., said she called to order the book but by the time she got off the phone had been charged $152.85.
