I want to keep this post as brief as possible because this announcement is not one I consider “good news” but it was necessary given the amount of inquiries and information I have been getting regarding the infomercial company, “Incredible Discoveries”.
As a brief recap, “Incredible Discoveries” came into my life around June 20, 2007 when they wanted to talk to me about marketing my books with infomercials. The conversations ultimately led to a $75,000 fee they wanted me to pay. I was immediate suspicious and I declined the offer.
A disgruntled, ex-employee, Robert Danoff, and another individual made contact with me feeding me insights. With my suspicions and their suggestions, I followed up on their insights. I made a few more blog postings regarding Incredible Discoveries updates as it related to Robert Danoff. I posted them because Robert Danoff gave me information that I thought might be of public interest.
To make a long story shorter, I eventually put an end to discussing “Incredible Discoveries” because I did not want my blog to become overrun with this story that really had little to do with me or my business. If you want to know more, go visit these posts.

However, since these posts last year, this blog persistently gets traffic on “Incredible Discoveries” which means many people are interested and someone is reading. But I also continue to get emails and phone calls from people wanting my opinion on “Incredible Discoveries“. I also get a few complaints. But I am not the Better Business Bureau. Nevertheless, I keep my ears open to what people tell me.
The straw that broke the camel’s back is when yet another person called asking me my opinion. I told them it was up to them and it was their money. It was like they wanted me to prove or disprove that “Incredible Discoveries” was a “bad” company. Quite frankly, it isn’t my job to be responsible for others.
As a public service, I shared my opinions on the blog already and if you think you can part with $50,000 to $75,000 and take the risk, fine with me. It is your money. But I keep telling everyone that my internal radar says to spend your money elsewhere. You can do a lot with $75,000 on your own plus I think a lot of the infomercial business is one that offends my sensibilities. That is why there are so many complaints.
In any case, I did get curious enough to do more fact-checking on “Incredible Discoveries“. After all, why does this blog get so much interest because of “Incredible Discoveries”? Obviously, a lot of people are searching for information on them which led me to do some searching on my own.
And so, I am trying to put this issue to bed. I dug out more interesting information. I had some interesting phone conversations from various past plaintiffs and defendants against “Incredible Discoveries”. I found information from the Florida Attorney General’s Office and Florida Division of Corporations.
With all of this, I compiled my findings into “The Incredible Discoveries Information Page“. I have tried to be fair and I am upfront of my biases. I give commentary and information but it is up to the reader to draw their own conclusions whether anyone should do business with them.
If you have additional meaningful information or corrections, I will accept them. But I am resistant to taking any more phone calls on Incredible Discoveries. I got better things to do than discuss them.
