“The UFF program is the ONLY program on the market with these exact features and benefits.”
Of course it is. If it could be compared to anything else, consumers would quickly see that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. It needs to be some secret, special, super-duper, can’t get it anywhere else program or no one will pay the outrageous fee of $3,500 for it.
“We have a 97.6% retention rate.” Continue reading
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been researching and reporting on the United First Financial Money Merge Account. UFF’s “agents” are poorly trained multi-level marketing pawns who spout company propaganda about how the MMA is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I was recently directed for United First Financial’s FAQ page. I had seen this page before, but looked at it today with an entirely different perspective. With my research on the product nearly complete, I am able to see a number of distortions and deceptions in this page.
And the company can’t claim (like many MLMs do) that they’re a victim of independent contractors who are misrepresenting things. These are corporate’s own representations about what the product is and does.
Here’s a the UFF story paired with simple facts: Continue reading
I’ve outlined all the reasons why United First Financial’s Money Merge Account is a scam. Although it technically offers something to the buyer, it’s not worth anywhere near the $3,500 fee that’s charged for it. Consumers can pay off their mortgages faster and for free without this program.
But if you need another reason why the UFF program sucks, I’ve found it. The basic concept of the UFF MMA is a money shuffle using your mortgage and a home equity line of credit (HELOC)… which they call an ALOC. You are led to believe that you’re achieving huge mortgage savings because the UFF computer program has a secret algorithm that helps you save money. The real reason you’re saving money is that you’re prepaying your mortgage, saving you interest payments down the road. Continue reading
If you owed a bank money under a loan that had an interest rate of 6%… And I came along and said to you “Here, take this loan with an interest rate of 8% and use the money to pay off the loan you already have…”
What would you say?
Anyone with remedial math skills would say NO WAY! Continue reading
I found this interesting description of the deception involved in selling the United First Financial program to unsuspecting consumers for $3,500: Continue reading
In my book, Dave Ramsey is hands down one of the best and most credible experts on getting out of debt. While I disagree with him on a few technicalities, we’re on the same page for most of what he preaches. The guy talks sense.
So when United First Financial representatives scammers began emailing me, calling me ignorant, stupid, and uneducated because I don’t believe in their product, I decided to research what my beloved Dave Ramsey has to say. Continue reading
Recently, someone on my consumer awareness site Pink Truth asked about United First Financial. I did some quick research and came to the conclusion that it was a typical multi-level marketing scheme… basically a pyramid scheme that relies on the continuous recruitment of new members. I didn’t think another thing about the company.
But a fellow blogger on the personal finance site WalletPop recommended the company today and I couldn’t believe it, so I had to do some research again. She promoted United First Financial as a program that is “the debt snowball on steroids.” She spent $3,500 to sign up for their “program” to help her reduce her debt. Continue reading
