High-flyer sold to Experian for $330 million back in 2005. This was the company that plastered the Web with those dancing cowboy ads enticing you with cheaper mortgage rates — it spent almost $75 million on them in 2006. With the mortgage market in turmoil, consumers have more need than ever to slash their bills — but doesn't have enticing mortgage offers for them, as lenders have cut back severely. Experian boss Don Robert has promised back in May a $217 million "cost-cutting drive" — "layoffs" must have sounded too depressing. One rumor had LowerMyBills cutting 45 employees, from VPs on down; another, improbably, said the company was relocating its data warehouse to Chile. Anyone know more about the cuts?
