Review 6/17/2010
LMB opens "accounts" in your name with other web based businesses. See end of review for details.

LMB boldly declares that they will provide you with comparative figures for various financial undertakings if you will simply answer a few questions. The few questions turns into a few pages. But I answered them all (on purpose, based on previous experience, I fudged some of the items that were irrelevant to what I wanted to get figures for.) Then you hit submit. Instead of getting the promised figures, you invariably get an "oops" page. It contains a vague sentence about the system being messed up and tells you that they can't give you the figures they promised to give you in exchange for your info. Nor do they give you any information about maybe getting your figures through email or online at another time. So, what has taken place is that you've been bled of your personal financial data, some very sensitive, and in exchange, you get nothing. They crazily follow this up with an invitation to visit another part of the site and give them even more information.. (I, of course, do not supply accurate information of a sensitive nature. When I called them after the first time I was told there was no way to get my info off their system. Interesting how it only breaks after they've got what they want from the user. The site clearly exists only to build targeted marketing lists. Beyond that, I am concerned about the collection of sensitive data by a "system" that breaks so frequently. Also, LMB would be a great place to start a career as an ID thief.

As if to prove my point about the ID scam potential, I immediately received phishing email from something called CareOneCredit.com thanking me for joining (I had never even visited their site) and asking me to complete the process by providing credit information. The "account" they told me I'd opened had the same information that I'd used on LMBs.
