It seems lately that it's all the rage to claim some TV personality is a scam and then turn around and try to push some unrelated product or service (More posts here). Here's an article that declares Matthew is a scam and never actually identifies why. I notice the article here is very clear on why Kevin Trudeau and his latest book are considered a scam but it fails to mention anything that would lead a reader to think, gee maybe Lesko is a scam. Additionally, the writer fails to categorize the products correctly: "the get rich quick on other peoples money topic." I'd love to know if he has ever read a Lesko book? (They're free in just about every library). The books have nothing to do with "getting rich quickly". He seems to be the only person in history to claim they're a "get rich quick scheme".

FYI: The books contain 1000's of leads into the government and it's programs. Yes, not everyone will be eligible for every program which is why the books tend to be 4 inches thick. There is usually something for eveyone in the books. That's the nice thing about government money, everyone is included somewhere.

BTW: On the homepage of you'll find a blurb regarding 3 individuals who used the information in various free money books to locate and fund various needs. These people were located by the Washington Post and written up in July 07. I guess it's a good thing they didn't see this ridiculous and factless article.

One more thing, it's hard to be a scam if you provide 90 day "no questions asked" guarantees. Which is why the BBB report on Information USA Inc. has zero unresolved complaints out of Millions of satisfied customers. Not even Microsoft has a record like this.
