I saw Dean's infomercial late one night and ordered the book and devoured them. I joined his free, yes, free website and started learning and applying the techniques he talks about. Once I bought my first property, I realized I needed some extra help and joined Dean's Success Academy. I went on to do 6 more deals in less than a year and increased my net worth over $250k. Dean is a man with integrity and wants to see you succeed. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone; in fact I do when people ask me about getting into real estate.

Of course, I did not buy into the 3-day workshop that they had for $1497! I attended the scheduled days of introduction to the workshop. I was curious to see if I would go further. Their presentation was tacky! They profaned a lot! Plus, they promised to give a laptop to the first 50 people, not the 50th person! They never did! I cannot even say whoever is representing Dean's company during those free seminars are giving him a bad name because the way he conducted the free laptop give away on his website was crappy also! When I looked to find out concerning the laptop, the company claimed that one person won! I decided to think that it was a virtual person. This company is shady. It does not have to be. However, they present it that way! Again, Dean's eyes look glazed over and dilated. He looks like he is on steroids! His demeanor is different from before! Armando Montelongo's company is orchestrated the same way at the free seminars, even more profanity and tackiness! He never gave the so-called promised mp3 player (however, this is for another review)!

Dean Graziosi response

On behalf of Dean Graziosi, his live events, or any offered advanced education, I want to thank Stevie for bringing this to our attention. As the leader in real-estate-investing education, one of Dean's top priorities is complete customer satisfaction. You can understand, though, when teaching thousands of people each year sometimes some students do not have the experience they desired. Dean wants to hear about these issues. More importantly, he wants to learn from these.

Because Stevie did not purchase any education, and only attended the free seminar, we feel that this review does not accurately address the education or it's effectiveness.

We wish Stevie all the best. Do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns regarding anything with Dean or his education. We are here to make sure your experience is the best it can possibly be.

My husband and I attended a seminar that was supposed to be 90 minutes long but turned out to be 4 hours (8:30am to 12:30pm)! No useful information, only repetition of a very high paced sales pitch. They even want you to cash in your retirement accounts to give them money! Questions can only be asked in private at break times. We wanted to get into real estate, but it was very tiring to sit through such a long repetitive seminar. They say they are not like others and that they will give you the bottom price. However, $1,997 was quickly slashed to $14,497. Because the whole seminar was really about buying their product rather than proof of how it will work, we decided not to purchase their workshop. Thank God, we did not. After reading all the negative reviews (which I completely agree with), I think we made a great escape from these scammers!

On behalf of Dean Graziosi, his live events, or any offered advanced education, I want to thank Rupa for bringing this to our attention. Dean is premier real-estate-investing educator in the U.S.A. Dean's top priority is complete customer satisfaction. You can see, however, when teaching thousands each year sometimes some people do not have the experience they wanted. Dean wants to hear about it and, of course, he wants to address any issues – however small.

Because Rupa did not purchase any products or education, and only attended the free seminar, we feel that this review does not give accurate insight into an educational program many have found very beneficial.

We wish Rupa all the best. Do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns regarding anything with Dean or his education. We are here to make sure your experience is the best it can possibly be.

Has any person bought this in IL at one of the seminars? Well, we did! We were told you could buy instantly a tax lien from their Direct Buy. Well, you can, although it’s not priced so low and my low ones are blank land you don’t want to get stuck with! Also, you will not get paid right away either because you still have to wait on the person to still pay. This will still take 3 years or four years. Who’s to know if you buy something for 400+dollars and only are really making 8 dollars or so on your money, that they are not gonna fold up for business and not pay you the money. And it sounds like you have to still get behind the owner yourself or you will cause yourself to lose your money. Has anyone bought from them in IL and got a check and did it cost any more money to actually get it? Like, did you have to hire that law firm they talk about or is that only when you win the property? And how can my friend get a refund on their card?

You will attend an overpriced seminar that will teach you one thing and one thing only, that everything is negotiable. They will take your money, give you no time to get it back, and tell you tough luck, business is business. I will give their speaker credit for being a great presenter. However, after it is all said and done, you will be poorer and not richer. Real estate takes money. So unless you have at least $20,000 ready to spend, stay away. Stay away. It’s better to just use your money to buy some gold.

These guys are a sales pitch scam! Do not waste your time! Well, my wife and I had a free evening and decided to attend one of the Dean Graziosi seminars.

I have a few extra dollars and I thought it would be a good opportunity to learn a little something more regarding real estate and investing. I have attended several other people's seminars and usually walked away with a nugget or two of useful information. Well, let me tell you I have never been involved in such a slick high-pressure sales event in my life! These guys pulled out all the stops. They had the pitch down perfectly. They set the stage for what an incredible time it is to invest... now or never! If you just sit there, then you are on the loser side of the equation.

They sounded so convincing and of course, they offered money back guarantees but only had six of them for a room of 50 or so people. (A great sales technique)

People crawled over other people to be the first in line to get one of these guaranties and hand over $2,000. I was approached by a sales guy at break and asked if I want to stay on the losing side and asked me, "Why did you come?" I about punched this guy in the face. He was such a jerk. When I repeated his comment to another sales person there, he told me, "Well, why did you come then, if you're not willing to do the right thing?" When I asked about our free cameras, he said, "Well, we ran out so here is a voucher." Yeah right. These guys take your $2,000 and get you to drive to a 3-day hard-core sales pitch for their real hard-core get together that only cost an additional $15,000-$35,000. There was never any nugget of information and the 3-day course is a waste of time. It should be criminal to sucker so many people out of their hard-earned money.

Dean Graziosi response

On behalf of Dean Graziosi, his live events, or any offered advanced education, our number one focus is total and complete customer satisfaction. We receive hundreds of positive posts a day on DeanGraziosi.com, and Dean obsesses on the client, unlike any other educator. But with helping educate literally tens of thousands of people, we realize every once in a while someone could slip through the cracks, or not have the experience they desire. We want to know this, we want to resolve this, and we want to learn from this. So when we saw this post we jumped right on it and here is what we found:

First, Mr. Dan, by his own admission, is not a customer of Dean Graziosi - he never purchased any products or services. Also, he never attended the 3-day real estate workshop, or reviewed any of the company's curriculum. The company has an average customer satisfaction survey rating for the 3-day Workshop of 4.79 out of 5.

It is unfortunate Mr. Dan feels this way. However, the company respectfully rejects all of his allegations as false and not founded on any of his experiences with our products or services - as he is not a customer.

People, I went to their seminar at the crown hotel in Syracuse back in the spring of 2012. It was a total scam. I knew it right away when I walked in the door, and I knew it when I was Googling Graziosi's name and the word "scam". You know what Graziosi did? His company used search engine optimization to be at the stop of search results when the words "Graziosi" and "scam" were searched! He then created some ** web pages about real estate scams so the web pages like this one, informing you about his scam, would show up further down in the results! What does that tell you when a company has to do that?

Anyway, in the seminar, they used some crazy tactics to steal your money. They explained that great credit is useful to real estate investing, so they actually took a 15-minute break where you were told to call your credit card company to ask for a credit line increase! I am not kidding! They did that so you would have more credit to buy their ** packages, which cost upwards of 50 thousand dollars. I kid you not. They also asked the audience, “Who has $80k at their disposal right now?” Then they made note of that and were very aggressive trying to sell their packages to those people. Not a single thing was taught about real estate. The guy speaking was a motivational speaker, not a real estate expert. His name was Deno **. I looked his name up during the seminar and he works for a company, which books gigs for their motivational speakers.

When I was fed up with the **, I went to the attendant and said, “I am leaving, I want my money back.” He turned into a complete **, disrespecting me and making fun of me saying, "I am not the one who needs real estate help." There are many stories of people being thrown out immediately if they are thought to be against buying packages. They told everyone not to exchange phone numbers or network because it can "lead to problems." Lol. What problems? They did this so that people don't start a class action lawsuit against this ** scam! I am telling you people, this is a scam through and through. I disputed the charge on my credit card and got my $1,900 back. This Graziosi guy is using a scam, and a great way to swindle people by standing behind a false facade by using the description or word "seminar" or "class." This was not a class; it was a sales pitch to buy their packages, which do not work! Email me if you want more info or want to start a movement against this guy.

I work in real estate full-time and went to a seminar in San Diego last night hoping to learn something new on investing. I did not. Most of the information was greatly outdated and useless. The seminar was supposed to be 3 hours - and they kept selling their 3-day workshop until past 10 pm! Non-stop sales push! And the information was poor. They talk about being ready "when" the market turns around. What? The San Diego median home price was up 20% in 2012! They talk about banks want to "give" properties away because they have so many. What? There aren't many foreclosures on the market. The number of foreclosures is way down and the accepted offers are usually all cash offers.

Then they talked about their strategy to "sell in 21 days." What? Many of the distressed short sale properties for sale are not actually owned by the bank - they just service the debt. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac own most of these, and their current policy is "After a 30-day period, and until 90 days from the date of the deed, the buyer is prohibited from selling the property for a sales price greater than 120% of the short sale price." So it's not a 21-day sale, it's a 91-day sale. Just tons of outdated, bad, irrelevant information. I do not recommend working with this group. They really don't know real estate or the local market.

I noticed something was not right with Dean Graziosi's seminars. The people there who spoke were unprofessional. Even if a person is not religious, I think a gross amount of profanity at a seminar reflects how tacky and unprofessional the company is. They did, at this particular seminar, give some snacks laced with all of the known poisons (HFCs and modified food starch). Anyway, they announced in a mail to "Hurry! The first 50 people to call get free Netbook computer!" Now my interpretation of this was fifty people would get a netbook. It did not say the 50th person would get a free netbook, which is only one person. On his website, it was announced that some person in a raffle-like drawing won the netbook. I did not care if they decided to give away free things or not. However, this made his company appear shady.

Also, I noticed that Dean himself looks like he is on some type of narcotics. His eyes look dilated all of the time and have a glazed appearance. He looks more muscular as if he is on steroids. I am disappointed with this company. I know that at times, people obtain their wealth through the misfortune of others (foreclosures, liens, etc). However, there are opportunities in real estate where people do not have to gain using those methods. It would not surprise me if Dean and Armando are being used by higher levels of government. Who knows.

I went to the Dean Graziosi real estate training on January 4, 2013 in Shreveport, LA. The bottom line is if it sounds too good to be true, do research before you do it especially if it involves your money. I listened to their sales pitch and on one hand, it made sense, but when it sounds too good to be true, do your research. Red flags were all over the place when they started offering all these benefits only if you pay them money without checking them out. They have to make some people successful to seem legitimate. I'm in sales and I realize that you have to put a time limit and benefits to get customers to act now. They do seem to have a good business model upfront but after research, it seems to be a money pit. Be careful!

Dean Graziosi response

Our Company is in receipt of the following complaint. At the outset, it is important for all parties to understand that the Company takes all complaints very seriously and seeks to obtain an amicable resolution as quickly as possible. The customer is this Company's greatest asset.

Based on the Company's review of this complaint, we have found this customer has not contacted customer service since his purchase date on January 4, 2013. Also, the Company's records indicate customer service has reached out to this customer on 2 occasions to confirm his attendance at the 3-day real estate workshop, which his free guest. We are in the process of reviewing his satisfaction survey of that event - and will post the results to this forum once they have been finalized.

Again, we only want our customers to be satisfied. We will reach out again to Mark to ensure everything is going well.

Original review: Jan. 3, 2013

The information in the infomercial was deeper than the actual 3-day seminar. I wanted to learn just enough to do something this year in real estate. I had a goal of creating some cash flow, learning how to find and close deals in real estate in my local market and a 3-year goal of owning some rental properties. I have gone to a few of our local real estate clubs introduction sales discussions for various systems. Dean Groziosi's was not much different but it was handled by a lot more people which I thought showed some depth. $2,000 is a lot of money right now for my family but I want to learn and get involved in real estate as the economy and real estate rebounds.

The big pitch, “You go to our seminar and we will put enough point-by-point activity and understanding that you will do a real estate deal within 3 months and turn a profit, and if you do that, you get your $2,000 back.” The premise being that the real problem is people being afraid to act, and that resonated with me and I signed up. I remember feeling a little bit ashamed because I am an educated, and by most standards, a successful person. A big reason for this is I am curious and take risks sometimes that put me outside my comfort zone. I think a lot of people feel this way. So I signed on and showed up and told the first guy I met that I was anxious because I wanted to learn something.

I wanted to do my first deal and although I need from investigating on the web that there was a strong upsell for additional programs that I understood the business model but was not going to be interested in anything else until I did my first deal. The guy said that I should just keep my mind open and please don't sour anyone else on your fears. And I didn't. Three days I was in the seminar. The instruction was really light, very general and not very applicable. It became very obvious that the whole weekend was about getting elderly and other people worried about their financial future to use their retirement funds to go to a Las Vegas convention where people buy and sell properties. It was very expensive and there were people that upgraded.

I made my intentions known very clear about what I wanted from the weekend and I held to my end of the bargain and was upbeat and positive to everyone. I never questioned the tactics or ethics of the strong sales pitch that was being exerted. My "mentor" kept asking me, "Are you interested in getting to the next level," which was an obvious presupposition buying into the $40,000 convention weekend but was supposed to be heard as "Do you want to be successful?" I said no and they gave me a packet of information and asked me to leave, saying I would get nothing else from the seminar because the rest was really an orientation for the people who were going to the convention. I actually got pulled from the seminar out in the hall 3 times because someone had asked me what I did and we were all on the honor code not to "network" during the seminar.

I did not and they also went so far as to ask that no business cards be exchanged because they have had problems in the past. My "mentor" who told me I was a loser or I would not be a guy with the education I have thinking that 3 days and $2,000 was going to teach me how to make money in Real Estate. If I wanted to learn, I needed mentors and needed to get to the convention in Vegas. Really… so I asked for his phone number and his email. He told me that he had a no compete with Dean and that he was not allowed to speak with students outside of the seminar. It was at this point that I realized that I was not even privy to any of the real names of all the people in the seminar. It was odd and enlightening at the same time.

I was really embarrassed about being taken and it is a shame that the people that were at this seminar were put in the position to extract money rather than create real value for the people in attendance. I don't even think it was intended to be this way. I listened to all the information they gave us and read the books that Graziosi put in the intro package and it was light but it was useful and got me hopeful that the 3 days would be valuable. The people who delivered the seminar were not. Deanno, the guy who gave the presentation was going through the script that he was told to deliver and you could see there was a lot of incongruence in his delivery. He was not there to teach people what he knew so they could apply it in a simple manner to get going in Real Estate investing, he was there to get people signed up for the convention in Las Vegas.

The most predatory thing they did was use some NLP-type exercises to find out what people’s core values and key words were and it became apparent that they did this not to help people discover their deep values but to leverage this intimate information in their sales push to create pain and fear, that if they do not go to the convention in Vegas that these intimate feelings, values and beliefs could not be achieved. I am committed to correcting the shame I felt from investing in the weekend by reading other books and taking a strong action plan to do my first deal within that 3 month period. I really don't think this company will give me back my tuition if I do, but if I do get a positive Real Estate transaction done within this time frame, I will make a bad feeling turned to positive conclusion.

You will never get those 3 days back. You will not get any value that comes close to the $2,000 investment and you feel some shame for being taken advantage. So if you read this prior to getting caught up in the sign up seminar, let it go. And if you are reading it after they got your $2,000, don't sweat it. Read everything, go through the motions, do not get bullied into signing your retirement on for the 3 day Vegas convention and feel good about your attempts to learn new things and make your life better, because those are your choices, and your conclusions and no one can take anything away from your positive journey when your intentions are in the right place. As for the snake oil salesmen and their intentions, well, Karma will get them.

The Company is in receipt of the following complaint. At the outset, it is important for all parties to understand that the Company takes all complaints very seriously and seeks to obtain an amicable resolution as quickly as possible. The customer is the Company's greatest asset.

We have reviewed the customer service file for Mr. Driscoll. He has never contact customer service about his purchase. Customer service has reached out to Mr. Driscoll on 2 occasions to confirm his attendance at the 3-day Workshop event in West Palm Beach. We are in the process of reviewing his satisfaction survey, which he completed at the conclusion of the 3-day Workshop - and we will share the results on this thread at this time.

Again, we only want our customers to be satisfied. Also, we will have customer service reach out to Mr. Driscoll and try to resolve any complaints he may have.

I bought the Tax Lien Tutor program for $1,497 back in October 2012. I was able to buy it after going through the tutorial program and asking many questions with the asset specialists. We bought our first lien from the Buy Direct listing on their website. The next step is to contact Guardian Law, their collection agency. They are the professionals that contact the property owner. I was fortunate that this had all ready been done and a payment plan was already agreed upon. I have so far received two payments at the 18% interest schedule. Last week, we bought another lien and still no problems so far.

I attended Dean Enterprises seminar in Greenbelt Marriott on Dec. 9 2012. Those salespersons are well skilled and have all the techniques to take your money away instead of helping you to make money. They will give you all kinds of guarantee but they are all fakes. Be aware; don't buy anything from them. They will ask you to being a paycheck to paycheck thinker and make a decision that will change and help you to have a financial freedom and guaranteed future. Thank you, Jesus, for not signing up to those scam workshop which I almost did and pretend that I had a call to take and was able to find my exit door.

Dean Graziosi came to my city in October 2012. The seminar lasted nearly 6 hours. I can't say I learned anything. We all felt pressured to buy one of the workshops. No refreshments, and the promise of a digital camera for attending which turned out to be a mail in card, never received a camera. This guy is no different from Bernie Madoff - in my opinion, worse!

In May of 2012, I attended a Dean Graziosi real estate seminar that was held at the Sheraton Hotel East, located in Flushing, Queens. While at the event, I met Mr. Darian ** of Investors Edge (801-341-3636). Mr. ** was lending his assistance to place me in a real estate niche that was tailored to my needs and interests. The purpose of this and of the seminar was to enable me to earn additional income through the real estate market. When Mr. ** returned to Salt Lake City, Utah, he telephoned me and said to me that I was an investor and not a consumer and that he could work with me and help me. I foolishly believed him and provided him with my HSBC/MasterCard and American Express Business card account numbers. He promised me a significant line of credit so that I could purchase real estate. He charged $10,000 to my American Express card and $15,566 to my HSBC/MasterCard supposedly for training that I never received. My bank statements indicate that the charges were made in Utah.

Dean Graziosi response

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. On behalf of Dean Graziosi, his live events, or any offered advanced education, I want to reassure you that Dean obsesses on his clients like no other real estate investment educator. One of Dean’s top priorities is total and complete customer satisfaction. However, when educating thousands of investors, occasionally some slip through the cracks. Or worse, the customer doesn’t have the desired experience. When this happens, Dean wants to hear about it and, of course, he wants to address any issues – however small.

So, when we saw this review we immediately looked into what had happened and here is what we found out:

All services for this client have been canceled and fully refunded.

Do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns regarding anything with Dean or his education. We are here to make sure your experience is the best it can possibly be.

I went to the free workshop of buying real estate. They said they had an expanded workshop for $2,000 but that if you did a deal within a certain period, you could get your $2,000 back. We went to that seminar, and all they did was try to sell you on the $16,000 to $35,000 seminars they have. They did teach you a little in the 2-day course, and we tried to apply their tactics. You bid on a house at half of the asking price, and if it's bank owned, bid 1/4 the price. We've bid on many homes, and you cannot bid under the asking price. We have even bid $20,000 over the asking price. It seems that they come into a good market and buy up all there is. And when it's sucked dry, then they do these seminars and say how wonderful the market is. They had someone call to come and personally help us buy a house, but we can't even afford the $2,000 that we lost - never mind whatever tens of thousands I have to give to someone to help me buy a house. Do it on your own! Don't waste money!

I signed up for the Dean Graziosi's Real Estate Success Academy. I was contacted by a Professional Marketing International (PMI) of Lehi, Utah. The salesman on the phone wanted to see if I was good enough (that's the game they play). Like a dummy, I gave them $35,000 from my savings. I trusted Dean and his helpful ways, that's why I did it. I wish I had known what I know now. Then I was contacted by the Tax Factory who wanted another $2,400 to set up an LLC for my deals and could do my taxes for me. They told me they got my name from the Dean Graziosi Real Estate Success Academy.

PMI told me that after my 5th deal, I would get my money back. I did 8. Then I had a stroke. That was last year. I have been trying for over a year to get my money back from these guys with no luck. I can't get the physical therapy I need because these guys still have my money. I have asked for my refund over and over again. While I've been trying to get my money back, I started to do some investigating. I was surprised to find out that PMI is under instigation by the Federal Trade Commission and the California Attorney General's office.

I have come across numerous articles now I am going through this. This one in particular. It describes the tactics. Does any of it sound familiar? It looks like these guys got me good. Now, as a senior citizen and disabled person, I am too weak to fight. So I have no choice but to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, the California and Colorado Attorney General's office and now the Better Business Bureau. I'm upset because due to my health situation when I need the money most, I can't get it back. This is ridiculous. I hope you never have to go what I have gone through. Be careful.

Being a young entrepreneur means you need to go hardships and trainings from the real deal, Dean Graziosi, and undergo his training or workshops to enlighten yourself of what to do next. Thus, with the $2,000 registration fee for the Insider's Edge Seminar is quite a big risk. But as they say, no guts no glory and on this one, I flunked. For the said seminar, all he talked about was this and that. Much less, it would make me happy if he at least talked about what it needs to become successful in the real estate business, but it was not worth the $2,000.

If you hear from their speakers to get 2 credit cards from one bank, we already know where this is going to. If you think straight, would you do such a thing? Concealing your identity until you sold the property definitely is quite intriguing. I am no expert in real estate, but doing what they are currently suggesting will make me a lawbreaker. That is definitely a no-no. I would rather work harder for clean money rather than break the law that may send me to jail. That I will avoid. So as to you, Mr. Real Deal Dean Graziosi, get a life! Don't go robbing in broad daylight. Don't waste your name on crimes like this. Karma nowadays is digital. It reflects back really quick. Don't tell me I didn't warn you.

I was going through a really bad end in my career and one of my friends told me about Dean's show. So I, too, decided to try my luck by watching Dean's show. I was really inspired and ordered his book "Be a Real Estate Millionaire: Secret Strategies for Lifetime Wealth Today" from **, which was really affordable as well. The book was delivered within 3 days and I was so excited when I received the book and couldn't wait to start reading it, which did not take even two days to finish reading it. It was very interesting, enjoyable and informative. As a person who knew nothing about real estates, the book taught me all I had to know about the field. So, I started out my first deal and Dean's unique formula for win-win-win real estate transactions helped me magnificently.

I made $10,000 and I didn't use any of my own money or my own property. I couldn't believe it, but I did it, Thanks to Dean Graziosi. I have no idea how to thank Dean for the way he has helped to transform my empty wallet to a filled one. However, all I have to say is buying the book will not help you alone. You must read it, understand it and put it into practice to gain dividends from it because it sure does.

I sent a check to PMI Education for the coaching program on June 15, 2012. They received the check on June 16, 2012. I did not gain access until June 19, 2012 after I spoke with one of the coaches with PMI, Nathan **. I was promised access to a national MLS system which I never received. I did get access to a toolbar which has a few calculators on it and site access to FSBO.com, Zillow.com and such which I already have access to. Their investor pipeline is a joke and I can't access the information on it, which Google could provide for me anyways. I spoke with Nathan ** again for 15 minutes on the 26th of June and he sent me a script through email.

Again, it’s nothing that Google couldn't provide me. The course itself is ridiculous and mind-numbing. It’s monotone and dull. It’s long and then you have to take a quiz. Again, it’s nothing that Google couldn't provide for me. On July 4th, I wrote an email to rehelp@pmidirect.com, ** and info@deanenterprisesllc.com asking for a refund and referring to "profit from real estate right now” (page 26) where their student Matt ** claims that he sent in a check and then asked for a refund wherein PMI told him to try it for another 30 days and if he was still not happy with the academy, they will refund him his entire investment. I received no email back. A week later, I spoke with Thayne ** after spending an hour on the phone being transferred from one customer service to the next and Thayne ** told me that only 5% of the people who enroll in the coaching program ever make it through and receive their money back.

He told me that he would send me an email with a breakdown of what they could refund me along with a money-back guarantee. I received his email on July 11, 2012 and the following is what they offered to refund me for two weeks of this crap course. Investment ($12,740), 30 real estate online lessons and 12 strategy sessions with your coach ($3595) with 45% accessed is equal to a refund of $1976 (charge of $1617). Tax lien sessions online ($995) with 0% accessed is equal to a refund of $995 (no charge). Asset protection kit ($2995) with 20% restocking fee is equal to a refund of $2396 with a charge of $599 (these are two books and few CDs that are definitely not worth $2396 and I wouldn't pay more than $15 for this). FSBO Home Bargains software for $695 with 20% restocking fee: the refund is $556 (there’s a charge of $139 for a restocking fee, but this is spam mail and sends "possible" FSBO listings off of Craigslist.com - how is there a restocking fee? Take my name off your spam list!).

Investor pipeline program for $1995 with 20% restocking fee: the refund is $1598 and a charge of $399 (this is a program, how do they have a restocking fee? And why are they refusing to refund my money?). Real Estate Toolbar for $395: there’s no refund for this (can keep because it's worthless). PropTrend licensed software for $1995 and there’s no refund (can keep; I don't even know what this is). Shipping is for $75 for 2 books and some CDs? Really? Start-up cost and commissions: $1911. The total charge is $7130 and the refund is $5610! That’s for two weeks of this scam. Dean Graziosi's real estate academy and PMI are a scam. Don’t do it. Read all of the complaints against them. They have scammed and conned thousands of people out of their money! When I went to post my complaint on DeanGraziosi.com, I was immediately directed to a page that said:

Dean Graziosi Scam - On June, 25, 2012, I paid $1,497 for a tax lien tutor package. I was promised four programs. For program no. 1, I paid the package at the site after the seminar. The seminar speaker said, as he was holding the package in his hand, that buyer will get software inside this package. I thought I'll own the right to use this software. But there was no software in the package. After I opened the package back home, I found out that I had to pay additional monthly fee to access it by using their website.

For program no. 2, there was an additional fee besides paid package for access to their website for $99/month, for life time it was for $24/month. I had access problems. I couldn't log in. I called customer support. I was unable to reach them. I left message 6 times. I called back 2 days later. By that time, 4 days had passed, my return allowance time (3 days) was expired! It may be that too many users access into it at same time. It runs very slow, or was frozen which made it not accessible at all.

For program no. 3, they have local training sections. They promised to offer 1 week after I paid but all of the training was far away, at least 3 hours driving distance. Since I have a medical health problem, I was unable to drive more than 1 hour.

Program no. 4 was customer support. I called during the business hours, all the time, holding for more than 20 minutes. Finally, I had to leave messages. I left messages at least 6 times. They returned my calls 2 times 2 days later. At the seminar, they claimed before my purchasing, the person, who answered the phone, said it's Tax Lien export. As I finally reached them, they couldn't give me the right answer. She either said this was not their field to cover or she have very shallow knowledge to handle the question. She was not helpful at all.

I have experienced their bad services for 2 weeks now. I called them, holding for 1.5 hours, asking for a refund. They refused my request. Can anyone help me about this matter?

I went to one of his seminars last weekend at a local hotel. A gentleman called me this week to offer me a slightly different offer than what was offered at the seminar. My family was seriously thinking about purchasing one of his programs until this incompetent sales person called me to tell me that yesterday, Friday May 25th, was our 7th day because they were closed on Saturday for business, when in fact because of the holiday it had been extended to Tuesday, May 29th, which he should have known. Guess who called on Saturday to try to offer me a continuation of the deal that supposedly ended on Friday, May 25th? You got it.

I informed him that we were told the deadline for purchasing the program ended yesterday and we have already made plans to fly to another seminar to purchase it at the discounted price. He told me that was impossible because he was putting my name in the system so that I would not be able to get it at the discounted price of $1,497. Then he called back to say that he talked to his boss and his boss told him to make sure to put me in their system because if I didn't buy it by May 29th, the price would be changing as of June 1st and they were going up on the cost an additional $200. I believe this was a threat or an attempt to scare me into purchasing their program by May 29th.

What an idiot, both him and his boss. They are not interested in selling this program. They are interested in ripping people off of their money. What a bunch of sore losers and then again just losers. Don’t purchase their programs unless you want to be ripped off! While he may be upfront and above board, the idiots he has working for him are not.

To all of you who were taken for your money, I feel sorry for you. My friend took me to this seminar and I said that it was a scam from the beginning. I saw how people were willing to give away their money as if they were rich or something. Anytime somebody tells you that you have to get something right now without looking over the fine print, be aware. I will never give away my money that easy. First of all, I never heard of Dean and second of all, I don't know enough about real estate to make a decision on what is best for me. Please remember that every state is different in what you can and cannot do in the housing market. For all of you who wrote on the way you were treated, I did see this at the seminar. I hope that all of you get your money and learn a lesson from this. Most things in life you must work for and they don't come free or easy. Please be aware that this is a scam. I did not give one red cent to them and nor will I regret that my friend asked me to go with her. Never again. Thank you, heavenly Father, for letting me see this scam a mile away.

My wife and I attended one of Dean Graziosi's seminars in Manhattan, KS in April 2012. Just like all the other folks who had attended, we too were duped. They started the seminar with this great promise of making money, but all you had to do was pay $1997 for this packet then another $997 for liens and deeds. Needless to say, we did.

But later, I called to cancel, and this individual called back and said I could keep the tax lien stuff and he would send a three-day DVD to us along with the ability to still use online help. Just like others, tax liens and deeds, not all states do online sales, as I have looked them up and you have to join their sites and pay more money. Dean was not at this seminar either. Does this person even exist? We are told that he only goes to these high-end classes. Why? Isn't everyone important?

I’m pleased to report that my dispute with Dean Graziosi’s Company has been resolved. I was contacted on 6/3/13 by a concerned customer service representative who listened to me and was very helpful in resolution.They have been most honorable.

Original review: May 10, 2012

After reading his book, and out of work, I decided to try his course. $2,500 is what I paid. Unfortunately, the housing bubble had just burst and his methods (which perhaps were viable previous to the bust), were not working for me. I spent 60 days full time trying his methods, particularly contacting the "For Sale By Owner." Most all of the FSBO were now investors who where trying to get rid of their leveraged properties and wanted cash only. The whole market was saturated with investors who were trying to dump their properties, knowing that the banks would no longer loan, and notes were coming due. I feel cheated and could say much more, however, that's it for now!

Factual basis uncertain
Original review: May 8, 2012

I attended a meeting in Southern California for Dean Graziosi's Real Estate Seminar in late April 2012. I signed up online, but a lot of other people received invitations in the mail where the seminar claimed to hold a private auction where attendees could buy valuable properties for pennies on the dollar. They were supposed to be available for $12K-$21K. A Latino guy next to me showed me his invitation. He had driven 2.5 hours to buy a house in the auction because he hadn't been able to afford six-figure properties in California. It was odd how the auction never materialized, but suddenly, Dean Graziosi's people were offering all sorts of other services on grants, cash buyers, 2% financing and insider tips to get properties below market at pennies on the dollar.

They claimed there was a full tuition guarantee and that you would have a property in 30-60 days if you signed up for a $1,997 seminar. The speaker, Miller, claimed that the real estate training and insider resources were the best in the business. Miller said that the program was so good and successful that over the years, he had never had a single person contact him to complain. Miller said that for years, he'd been giving out his email address to every group that he spoke to. When someone asked what his email was, Miller promised to give it to us at the end. Then Miller left during the break without giving us his email address. At the back, no one from the company had any idea what Miller's email address was including his wife! He introduced his wife who was sitting at the back table, another Dean Graziosi employee and showed their wedding pictures during the slideshow! They said that we would get Miller's email address "later" from customer service.

During the presentation, I noticed two women in their late 30's with dark hair. They were very vocal and active in responding to what Miller said. When he solicited interest in topics, they provided excited input. And they would say the services were worth thousands of dollars or the one-day financing should be worth 20% or 50% of the deal instead of just 2%. When Miller gave an incentive for the first 9 who signed up, they were among the first to rush to the back table. In fact, the ladies practically knocked over their chairs and hit the people around them because they were in such a rush. After the break, the speaker, Leland, talked about tax liens. I happened to know some things about tax lien certificates and deeds. I knew enough to know that Leland was understating the costs and risks and overstating the opportunities. There are a lot of junk tax lien properties which will never give a return. I also had a friend who did their program, who claimed it was a scam. I wanted to hear what Graziosi's guys had to say about tax liens so I could better judge what they said about real estate.

Although Leland claimed that they provided access to buy tax liens online for all the 50 states, that is not true. I know that many states do not have online systems. Further, some of the junk online is whatever is left over after the smart-money buyers dominate the auction. Leland didn't mention that at the auction, the rate of return is typically "bid down" from the high rates he quoted. When I tried to ask a question to point that out, Leland wouldn't allow any questions and said I would have to talk to him privately at the end. I said it was a group question, but he would still would not let me ask. That amazed me. The group had thinned to half of its size during the real estate presentation, but they still wouldn't allow a single question!

Leland said that Graziosi saves his best deals for last and that tax liens are the best deals. That statement alone worried me. The cost of the tax lien product from Graziosi and Sean Keegan Walker was $997-$1,497, plus a monthly fee to buy from Walker's stock which he bought in bulk at discount and marked up. They also claimed there was a tuition guarantee. After the presentation, I noticed that the two ladies were no longer animated, but were just slouched in their chairs not even talking to anyone. They had a bag with the real estate packet. I asked what kind of properties they wanted to buy. They said they didn't know. I asked if they had properties now. They said no. It seemed odd that now they exhibited no excitement, interest or knowledge in real estate. I asked if they received the mailing about the pre-auction. They said no.

When I said that I thought it seemed like a bait and switch that there was no auction, and that I thought Leland over-represented the tax liens, in the middle of my sentence, one of the ladies walked to the back. She seemed to know the guy running the seminar admin. Then the guy walked up to me and asked me to leave immediately for criticizing the program. I looked at the two ladies and they gave me fake smiles. Then a guy escorted me out of the hotel. It was a public place! Wow! I thought there was something strange about those two ladies. I hadn't guessed that Graziosi had planted fake audience members for positive audience participation, crowd control and to create herd mentality to make people think everyone was rushing to sign up.

The speakers would not allow questions, would ignore the audience participation that contradicted their message and play up the fake messages. They even had a system to squelch criticism. They completely controlled and manipulated everything in the room! From what I read, it is lucky for me that Graziosi's guys decided to kick me out for being too inquisitive and critical! I never thought a business could be so fake and manipulative!

My husband and I paid $1997 to attend Dean Graziosi's (of course, Dean himself was not there, but an entire team of very slick sales shysters was in place) 3-day workshop. My husband is unemployed and things are pretty tough right now, but it sounded so amazing and we are very interested in getting into real estate. Well, I took days off work and we attended. The whole entire time was basically about paying for and attending another 3-day workshop, which prices ranged from $18,000 to $36,000 to get further teaching. I felt scammed and was very unhappy. Who has $18K-$36K for something like that? But that was okay, said the motivational speaker! Just put it on your credit cards! They were very pushy and had everyone fill out paperwork with all of our financial details on it, then we were given an appointment with a "coach", who took those details and tried to "help" us to find a way to finance continuing education or "mentoring" as they called it with Dean and "his team".

Once they found out you aren't interested in buying their additional workshops, you are pretty much treated like a leper. When they finally get down to giving us some of the information that was promised for our $1997, they went through it quickly and overwhelmed you to make you feel like you were an ** and really couldn't do anything on your own without again, paying an additional $18K-36K for their additional help. There were quite a few people who jumped up to pay them these exorbitant fees. I felt so sorry for them, but couldn't say much as we were warned at the beginning of the class that if we say anything negative not just during the class, but in the bathroom or at break times to others, we would get kicked out. Most of the time, you are not allowed to ask questions even. Whatever you do, don't get talked into this class! It's a huge waste of $2000! What a bunch of scammers, they should feel ashamed!

I attended a free real estate seminar at the Sheraton on 3/31/12 in Brooklyn, New York. I paid the Dean Grazio company $1497 on 3/31/12 to attend a tax lien and deeds - training and buying event to be held on April 21, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel at 1335 6th Avenue in New York. This scam business lures consumers by using motivational speakers to convince you to give them your money to attend meetings after meetings. And they're promising you ways to help you invest your money into another meeting they conduct, selling books and DVDs that lure you to give them more of your money. This leads you to spend more money that results in the consumer attending more meetings and giving the Dean Grazio enterprise more money you can't afford to be scammed.

The district attorney's office in New York and The New York City Department of Consumers Affairs were notified as of 4/4/12. I notified my bank to cancel payment and I emailed twice to the Dean Grazio enterprise on 4/2/12, 2 business days prior to 3 business days after transaction was made on 3/31/12 that I am cancelling my payment of $1497. I will return items to this company (DVDs) in resale condition, as per return policy located on the back of the transaction receipt.

On 03-04-12, I went to a seminar about real estate at Las Vegas, NV. Embassy Suites Hotel lies and more lies. These people, they are a group of scam artists. They took from me $1997 for Dean Graziosi's Profit from Real Estate Right Now and $997 for Sean Keegan's Tax Lien Program, SKW Central, also Stephen Libman (motivational, partner speaker). Please somebody do something with these guys. Place them in jail. They are taking advantage of lots of good people out there. Any questions regarding matter, **.

My wife and I attended your Sacramento seminar on September 6, 2011, as advertised on the Labor Day, September 5th TV infomercial. We got swept into the excitement when two millionaires testified of their success stories of rags to riches. We were told to use other people's money via credit card and pay for a 3-day Real Estate workshop, September 15, 16 and 17th. A paid trip to a future retreat in Las Vegas was promised. We charged the $1,997 on our Visa and an additional $997 (discounted rate for having been one of the first 10 people to sign up), for another upcoming Tax Lien workshop, that is to be announced. We were told that the investments were refundable, provided we attend all three days of the workshop, of which we did.

A majority of time during the 3-day workshop was spent trying to get us to buy advanced boot camps, ranging in price from $50,000 Diamond to $6,997 Bronze level. We were again told to use other people's money and charge it. Isn't this the reason the economy is depressed? People are spending what is not theirs! We were told to find a house for $30,000, fix it up and resell it for $150,000. Yes, I know that it is possible, but substantial legal and banking knowledge is required. Practiced salesmanship skills are needed. Most people do not give their homes away. As you know, many people that attend Dream Seminars have personal emotional, physical challenges and/or family members that demand of their time and attention. Many variables are in place before a serious change of commitment and lifestyle can be pursued.

We were surprised Sunday afternoon, the last few hours of the workshop, when we approached one of the attendants and were denied the refund. The attendant said that we would have to call the Insiders Edge office (the Insiders Financial Institute). Monday morning, I called **. Laura answered and said that I would need to call PM Marketing Institute for a refund (877) 234-8394. Jessica, at **, also said to contact PM Marketing Institute. Hillary, of PM Marketing Institute, answered and said to call your office, (888) 251-1116 x 3485. No one answered and I left a detailed phone message. Darrin ** (Caller ID **) called me Tuesday and said that the Insiders Financial Institute was mistaken, and that he'd have someone else call me back. Wednesday, I missed a call from Mr. Thayne **, as shown on caller ID. I called him back Thursday. No one answered and again, I left a detailed phone message. No one has called since. All materials from the seminar and workshop have been returned.

Dean Graziosi response

On behalf of Dean Graziosi, his live events, or any offered advanced education, our number one focus is total and complete customer satisfaction. We receive hundreds of positive posts a day on DeanGraziosi.com, and Dean obsesses on the client, unlike any other educator. But with helping educate literally tens of thousands of people, we realize every once in a while someone could slip through the cracks, or not have the experience they desire. We want to know this, we want to resolve this, and we want to learn from this. So when we saw this post we jumped right on it and here is what we found:

Our records show that Mr. Torres received a full refund of his purchase in March 2012.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything with Dean or his Education please do not hesitate to call us. We are here to make sure your experience is the best it can possibly be.
