Interesting Points

The website of innovative Wealth Builders is shockingly bare on information and details for a company that wants to take your money and get your financial information. In my opinion it appears to be nothing more than a placeholder site.

I’m an expert in the field of consumer debt and even I can’t figure out what the hell they are trying to sell based on the description on their site.

With today’s economy, every penny you make needs to be spent and invested wisely. That’s where we come in. We want you to feel secure that your money will now start working for YOU! [Doing what?]

This is what everyone wants but is not quite sure how to achieve. We will provide you with an innovative program that will not only reduce your debt obligations but will also provide a strong foundation to build your financial future. [A program of? Maybe a hint would be nice.]

There are not many institutions like Innovative Wealth Builders, Inc. We provide a program that will not damage your credit. Innovative Wealth Builders, Inc. is not a consolidation or credit counseling company. We provide the tools that you will begin to use in order to enhance your credit, save money on your interest payments, and get you out of debt in half the time. Isn’t it nice to know you have someone on your side who understands the value of your hard-earned money?

Our additional services are customized to support every family’s personal needs. We want to be your one-stop financial resource center. [Okay, but what do you do?]

It’s now up to you to take the step to be partnered with our successful financial team and vastly improve the quality of your economic life. – Source

This lack of clarity in what they do makes their series of frequently asked questions, laughable in my opinion. They claim whatever it is they offer won’t hurt your credit, is not debt settlement, is not debt negotiation, and you don’t have to stop using your credit cards. – Source

They currently have call center jobs open. The job listing says:

Call Center
Come work for a company that’s only going up. You can make a difference in people’s lives and your Own! (You really CAN buy happiness!) Cash spiffs! AM and PM shifts. – Source

For a company that is hiring, if they didn’t have something to hide, why is their site so damn vague?

There is a mention of the company purchasing leads from IMGLLC.com but it should be IMGLLC.us. – Source

  • I once worked at Consumer Financial Advisory Board, and quit because i felt it was a complete scam.  This company was prior called Financial Freedom, and they promise to save consumers thousand by lowering credit card interest rates.  Usually by maxing out however many cards it takes for their crazy fee’s, which of coarse caused much more damage to the customers credit rather than helped.  A couple years ago, I was applying for, yes, another telemarketing job.  There were hardly any jobs at the time, so I had too.  I thought this one was a legit company though. Well, I never ended up working for this company I was ushered into another room when they found I worked for consumer financial adivsory board, annd handed off to another call room, with a different buisness called Innovated Wealth Builders.  Unfortunately I soon learned that they were running a almost identical scheme to Consumer Financial Advisory Board, even their scripts and rebuttels were the same -practically verbatum.  FYI- i quit that job before i signed up any more “victims”.  Since their scripts and rebuttles are identical to consumer financial advisory board, I’m pretty sure they are somehow linked.

  • oh, and they tell u in the beginning that they “will not be asking for the 3 digit cvc code from the back of ur card”. thats because theyre not being recorded at that time. but once u qualify u get sent to Verification, where it IS recorded, and ur cvc IS required. by the end of the call, they have all the info they need to charge up ur card whenever they damn well please
