Kim,

I would be wary of this.  60 minutes recently did a report on the mismanagement of funds for Wounded Warriors.  You have no idea whether it is real or not, and I think that the majority of lead generators are not worth the $$$ spent.  I Googled them and they do not sell leads.  Here is the link.  A

Counter for a 45 day free trial.... 

I made the mistake picking up a local ac call she asked if I want to get 3X more leads from sellers.  I said active agent in the Valley avg 2 transactions per year.  She says she will give me 3 leads a day. I said I am with a law firm and if they provide 1 legit lead free per day for a month I will sign up after 30 days.  She hang up on me....

I have received calls similar to what you describe but I don't recall the name they used.  I did not bite on the pitch, the research I did do was not positive. Bottom line is I just can't afford to gamble on whether the company calling to sell me leads is telling me the truth, no matter the mechanism that they use to collect the leads.

I'm joining the chorus of NO's, don't do it. Buying leads NEVER works kim stonerock ask your Broker how to generate more leads and if he/she is not helpful get another Broker (but don't give up).
