Of all of the late night television personalities, the guys out there on the tube at one in the morning telling you that you can make money and get fit and extend a certain part of your anatomy, one of the few who’s really on the level is probably Matthew Lesko. Of course, even so, anyone with a ridiculous suit and an infomercial, well, you’re probably going to be thinking it’s a scam, right?
Well we’re glad to report that he is, in fact, on the level. If you’re willing to invest some time into looking through his massive, phone book size volumes on government grants, then you are likely to find something you qualify for. Not everyone qualifies for everything in the book, but there are so many different opportunities listed that you’re very likely to find something.
It’s also worth noting that the “character” he plays is very much for real as well. He actually wears that Riddler suit all around town and drives a Lexus completely covered in yellow question marks. So while you might assume that someone who acts that wild must be a square in real life, it’s not the case with Lesko. He’s just as eccentric offscreen as he is when talking about FREE MONEY FROM THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT!
There are some who have accused Lesko of cashing in on a form of plagiarism, which is a bit of an odd accusation. The Lesko business model is to research publicly available books and files on government grants and loans, and then collect all of the relevant information into a single volume. Lesko himself has admitted that he gets all his information for free.
But is this really any different from a researcher who studies hundreds of books at a library and then compiles it all into a single volume for easy reading? Not really. Browsing through a book from Matthew Lesko takes a lot less time than doing the research on your own.
Whatever those criticisms levied at Lesko, at the end of the day, the animated series The Venture Brothers said it best: Lesko helps people get free money from the government, so… He can’t be all bad, right? Whatever you may think of his wild attire, manic stage persona and crazy infomercials, the fact is that the information presented in his books is actually pretty solid.
