A shout out to James Terlizzi, CEO of DRB Capital. "It's not all about the Benjamins, it's all about the bass, ' bout the bass no treble..."
Have a look at DRB Capital's latest marketing stunt (right)
Was it a professional courtesy copy, or an example of how unfiltered DRB Capital's data base is? I received a an envelope with an image of thousands of dollars worth of Benjamins on both sides. Benjamins as in $100 bills. When I opened it up there were absolutely no actual Benjamins there. False Advertising.
Inside was a check for $250 attached to all sorts of conditions to qualify for it, not the least of which is to agree to sell your payments. There was also a check for a measly $25, " Celray" in Delray maybe, but could never be mistaken for a Benjamin. Now, I don't know about you "Jimbo", but, given the wallpaper, when I think of Benjamins I think of a lot more than two Benjamins and a Ulysses S. Grant!
DRB Capital's marketing gimmick reminds me of the chump trawling Old Chicago Bank Roll, where there's a Benjamin or large bill on the outside and a stack of ones on the inside. In the case of DRB Capital there is a whole lot of misleading BS on the outside and a whole lotta nothing on the inside.
