$18 sounds like a rip off, but if you pay $200 and can make $2,000 then it is worth it. Of course there is no way to tell without buying…



If they are giving you DNC people’s phone number with permission to call then it is worth it… However if might be more effective buying and income and age list for whatever zipcodes you are working and just call them.

Prestige is a huge ripoff company.  Stay far away from them.

-They will refund any names with incorrect information.

-They will refund all your money if you don’t make $5,000 per 100 names.





A GUARANTEE is only as good as their word… and from what I experienced and read by others they do not honor their agreement. I’ve waited over 4 months for a refund from a crappy list that was years old. When I called the salesman he only wanted to sell me a “better” list. SAVE your money, go somewhere else.

ALSO CALLED SRC LIST



they say the leads are new… NOT.



they say you can easily get your money back… NOT.



try something like targetleads.com, insureme.com, 4freequotes.com or seniorleads.com

Just found your info request regarding SRC Leads.  If you haven’t found out by now, you will not want to waste your time with SRC Leads product.  Many of the names on the list were people that had died more than 10-years ago.  They have a compelling story, which is why they are still in business today.  Since they had called on me again, 10-years later, they may call on you again.  If so, simply hang up the phone and move on with your day.  Gook luck.

The funny thing is, if they just did the actual surveys and sold the positive responses, they'd make a killing selling those leads.

I only use INFO USA.  I have bought several lists from them, and their data is always very reliable.

I received a call from SRC Lists offering the same deal as SRC Leads, but they want $3.50 per lead. The caller, named Abel Bronson, told me he was referred to me by a network contact of mine on LinkedIn.com.  Interestingly the caller from SRC Leads was named Abram. I can’t help but notice that both names have biblical reference, and both companies have the same mode of operation. Oddly, Abel mispronounced my associate’s name. So, I contacted my associate to see if he had in fact referred me. He did not! So it is clear that SRC Lists aka SRCLists.com & SRC Leads aka SRCleads.com are similar scams if not one and the same and now they are using LinkedIn to lend credibility to their scam. I’m going to do my best to make the folks at LinkedIn.com aware of the abuse with hope that I can get them barred.  All of the guarantees are the same as SRC Leads the same as those noted by other posters, and SRC Lists is also from Miami Florida. I told the caller that I had a bad experience with SRC Leads, and he explained that they were a totally different company in competition with that group...that their guarantee was good. I asked him to, to send me his contact information via e-mail. He indicated that he was sending it as we spoke, but hours later it has not yet arrived. Beware of SRC Leads, SRC Lists, and Prestige Management and its many affiliates because they do not honor their guarantee either. Bottom line, guarantees aren’t worth the paper they are written on, and good luck trying to report them to the BBB because they have learned how to manipulate the BBB’s system. There are reputable companies out there if you do your homework.

I want to WARN anyone who is considering doing business with SRC Lists or SRC Leads or whatever name they are using.  They are complete liars and you should not do business with them unless you just simply want to throw your money away.

I have been in this industry for 15 years and have never seen anything so bold to rip off financial professionals trying to grow their business.

This is what happened:

I have been contacted by several different sales reps from SRC over the past 2 years.  I first noticed a problem when one sales rep would tell me a different story from the previous sales rep.

In a nutshell they claim to send out a "survey" with credit card statements to a demographic of people making over 100k per year that have CDs coming due within 90 days and these people check boxes on this survey indicating their personal information such as the value of their home and how much they have in CDs and when they are coming due and of course putting their phone number and signing their name to indicate they would like to be contacted by a financial professional to explore their options.

THIS IS A LIE!

They will tell you anything to have you send in your credit card.

They told me they would send me the actual surveys these people filled out and this would come within a few days via UPS.  They could not however provide me with a sample copy of one single person who had filled out a survey with their program.

I also asked them for referrals of which they claimed they could not give me.  After several weeks of trying to sale me the sales rep told me that a major insurance company regularly used their leads and agreed to provide me with a referral from one of their agents and have him call me. 

An agent did call me, however the only problem, was that the "agent" who called me was not the real agent, it was another sales rep from SRC impersonating a financial services professional from this major insurance company.  He lied to me about his name and told me he worked for the insurance company and had used the leads from SRC every 3 months.  It was immediately obvious to me he was lying because when I asked him a few simple questions about our industry he fumbled the answers and didn't really have any knowledge about our industry.

I asked him what branch he worked out of and he told me so when we hung up I decided to call the branch and ask to speak to the agent who supposedly had just called me.  Guess what.............he had no idea what I was talking about because it was a different person.  Later that night I called back the number the "agent" from the major insurance company had called me from and his voice mail had a different name and referenced his association with SRC.

I decided to call to speak with the branch manager and explain the fraud and how someone from SRC was impersonating one of their agents.  To my surprise the branch manager knew of SRC because the previous week she had spent $1,500 for leads from SRC.  She was FURIOUS not only because SRC was impersonating one of her agents but because she had just realized that she had also been ripped off by SRC and no one would return her calls from SRC after selling her the bogus leads.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK, LOOK AT THE OVER 400 COMPLAINTS WITH THE BBB AND ALL OF THE POSTS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF.

I CHALLENGE ANYONE FROM SRC TO COME FORWARD AND REPLY TO THIS POST.
