Looking for Information On Heir

Hi
I have recently been approached by Heir and was wondering if any of the members online had any positive or negative comments or advice .
Is anyone out there actually involved with Heir or Canyon Acquisitions ?
I have read lots of comments but not alot of actual factual experience .
I would really like to see or hear someone's experiences before mortgaging our home .
thanks

The last time a first-time poster led with this question it ended in a train wreck. HEIR seems to be a lightning rod for spam and snake oil salesmen - but maybe I'm too skeptical...

HEIR -- what's the scoop???

Heir Program

I gather the section in the contract that asks that you not speak about HEIR outside the meetings is strictly adhered to or know one is involved as i can't seem to find anyone out there that wants to talk !

And this doesn't make you even a little suspicious?

That alone screams lack of transparency and as such, I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole...

Kinda sounds like someone looking desperately for a magic bullet. Be careful. This economic environment is ideal for fraudsters and pushers of all sorts to come out of the woodwork and take advantage of desperate people.

There are a lot of other quotes, but that's the one that people remember.

Allgirls, welcome to the forum. Are you considering refinancing your house and pulling money out to invest in this company?

Allgirls, I think you are sincere.

I try not to give advice because I don't know very much. But this should be an easy one. Just go to the most conservative person you know, maybe an old fashioned banker, and maybe she can talk you out of this dangerous idea.

First paragraph on the link looks good to me. Teaches couples how to become debt and mortgage free.
Now if step three is to borrow money against your home and step 1 and 2 were don't talk about this with anybody. I would run (not walk) to get away from these jokers.
As Dave says broke desperate and stupid are three brothers that hang around each other. If you're broke you really want your guard up so you won't join the other two.

This reeks of a plan (paraphrasing Dogbert) to turn worthless home equity into valuable fees and commissions. The warnings against talking to the non-indoctrinated, contradictory promises, reliance on testimonials instead of numbers, huge up-front fees, big referral dollars - not with a ten-foot pole.

Sounds similar to a reverse mortgage scheme..Home Equity Investment Rewards Inc — Home

I dont get the "dont talk to others" rational and that would be a major red flag to me.I think you would do better by browsing around for a better paying job.
