Investment information should not be an investment. To many times in the business arena, customers are asked to pay for investment information to eventually invest their money. You’ve seen the situation yourself I’m sure.
Your watching a TV ad or listening to the radio or reading a magazine and you see an attractive offer for an investment product. Then your told to call an 800 free number with no cost or obligation to you. Sounds good so far right? So, you pick up the phone or go to the website or whatever the media is and you request the free investment information. And, sure enough, you are given the free information by whatever form they offered it to you in.
But as you go through the information, you quickly realize that the content of the information is really no more than the original ad you heard or watched or read. Then your asked if you want the next level of investment information, it will cost you “x” amount of dollars.
So, you now pay their fee and receive their second batch of information which actually has been an investment because now you have paid out some cold hard cash for the so called free investing information.
Now, of course, from this information, which you have now paid for, your offered “the package” which of course is now getting into some serious money. So, you dig into your wallet again and pay up some big bucks to get the actual investment information that is going to make you money.
Wow, are you exhausted yet? I hope not, because you haven’t even paid out for the main product in which your investing in. That’s the goal, remember? That was the reason you got interested in the investment product in the first place.
So, when seeking investment information, especially for investment products, be aware that you should deal with investment companies who give you all the information about the investment products for free. The only thing you should pay money for is the actual investment your investing in. Because, reality is, your investing in their products and that should be cost enough.
