Spy Cam Confession About Credit Scores

You’ll be stunned to see the credit score secrets my friend Philip Tirone exposed when he went undercover into a major bank with his Spy Cam.  Tirone wanted to see whether bankers knew the correct information about how to build a credit score.  Click here to see the video.

The long and short of it is this: they don’t. The very people who are supposed to help you get a loan have not been trained to tell you how to qualify for the best interest rates. This banker was even wrong about how credit cards impact a score.

And Tirone told me that he asked another banker to explain the facts about bankruptcy and how it affects credit. Guess what? That banker was way off the mark, too!

Philip Tirone teaches how banks legally rob you, thinks this video is evidence that the banks intentionally refrain from training their employees about the credit-scoring systems. If these credit score secrets were disclosed, you might increase your credit score and receive lower interest rates.

On the other hand, if the banks do not disclose any credit-building tips, they can continue charging ultra-high interest rates. What do you think about this video?  Please comment and share this post.

The Epilogue of an 8-Year Old Girl

Albert Einstein once said: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is a miracle.”

For 10 days (from December 3rd through 13th in 2010), my family lived every day as if  it were a miracle as my 8-yr old daughter, Breanna Marie fought for her life in Bed #13 at the Intensive Care Unit at Oakland Children’s Hospital.

It was sudden. It was gut-wrenching. And it kept my wife Aimee and me at her bedside for practically the entire month of December in 2010.  Now I have no idea if you knew about our predicament back in December, but I do know tens of thousands of strangers and friends and family members prayed for Bree’s recovery.

It worked!  Thank you.  Click here to experience those 10 days in December, 2010.

Whether or not YOU were one of them, I’m sure she’d appreciate reading your comments on her first blog she just published  :-)  Because as I write this blog post, I’m delighted to announce that Breanna is fully recovered and we still are a “family of four.”  I now know that my greatest challenges have the potential to become my greatest triumphs.


Take 4 minutes and watch video on Breanna’s first website at She is a great reader for a 2nd grader so I can assure you that she will greatly appreciate your comments.  Happy 2011!
