Well I can see that it's all Dean's fault that you are not successful. Your totally unintelligible rant says volumes about the type of person you are.

Go to the book store with a note pad and gather all the details yourself, yeah right. You said the book is *** so why do that?

My guess is you were down to your last $50 and expected the heavens to open and pour down money for just reading it.

Your best bet is to buy lottery tickets.

Thank you for these reviews. I just checked Dean Graziosi out on BBB.

They have an "F" rating and are NOT a BBB member!

RED FLAG!!!! I'm sure glad I ALWAYS search for reviews on the web BEFORE I buy anything that sounds to good to be true....

Dean Graziosi how he really works

i am more than dissatisfied with the way Dean does business. It may look like he has a huge following,the truth is he also has several angry customers. Several people might give him high praise for his books and his web site. people browsing the web might find some of his information useful and will think that he is a swell guy. The way dean really does business is not so honest. His infomercial is not really out to sale his books, it's out to sale his coaches program. After you order his books they will come in a shipping box like you all didn't know that, after you open it, there is a dvd on top of his books and the dvd has a title that says something like this " Watch this dvd before you do anything else" what this dvd is another infomercial trying to get you to sign up for his coaches program and there is an 800 number that keeps flashing. If you do not call the 800 number they will try to contact you. The business will give you a call and they will smooth talk you in to believe that if you don't go with them its your loss. This business goes by the name of pmi. PMI are your coaches, I feel there no more than telemarketers. If you sign up with Dean's coaching staff your cost will be around 3500.00. The course is nothing more than how to advertise to get business flowing your way like your an investor. I sale homes I buy homes, this is what is dragged out over several hours.They will show you how to do business cards and post them into several different locations and make flyers and staple them on light post or tape them to the top of a coke machine. The coaches don't give you much advice either. After PMI takes your cash like someone would take candy from a baby, you will receive a call telling you that you will get a call from the tax club. This individual will tell you that you don't have to go with the tax club, but if you do, they will write the course off on your taxes. The tax club gives you a call and they will tell you that yes you can write this off on your taxes and that we charge 2800 dollars or around that range to. The good news is the tax club throws the infamous line that you can write that fee off on your taxes as well. We charge a 50.00 a month fee that is not refundable. I am not sure what the 50.00 a month fee is for. They tell you that we have a few follow up calls, there just assessment calls, give you a date and time that they will give you a call. They are always on time. The callers will want us to be your personal accountant for a fee of course. The fee is around 1300 and they tell you that they have a cheaper package. The second call is that they want to sell you corporate credit. we will sale you corporate credit and the fee is 2900 dollars and another 50.00 a month fee. Once again I am not sure what the 50.00 a month is suppose to go for. They might make some other calls as well, its just some more calls trying to soak you dry. IT is now tax time and the tax club are ready to do your taxes. The tax club sets up an appointment with you and will call you, there is just one small problem that you didn't make any money and that you can't refund anything. Its seems to me this is one huge problem that they left out. this is why dean graziosi got an extremely bad review. I feel alot of web sites that give him outstanding reviews are owned by him. It's real simple, make another web site and give yourself a good review or put money into another web site and they will give you good reviews as well. This is just advertisement . I can find a bunch of people to make you tube videos as well. All a lot of people really got took when they went into the tax club. If you don't have not customers and you might not be able to make the real estate work you didn't need the tax club.

I found that Russ Whitney has a new website where he practically gives away all the real estate training that Dean and Rich Dad are charging at $5,000 a course. Lifewealthalliance.com has a membership for $27.95 a month that includes 6 of the advanced training courses, updated and recorded recently. I advise anyone interested in real estate investing to check it out.

FIRST CHECK WITH THE BBB BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU EVERYTHING THAT SOUBDS GOOD ISANT ALWAYS GOOD I CANT STRESS THIS ENOUGH.

Oh shut up Derek, no one asked you for your *** opinion. I'm sorry desertrattwo....I told you change your credit card # or dispute it with your credit card company.

James -- if you really want to make customer's happy or satisfied try refunding everyone their money and stop it w/ all the bs. The only way you can solve their issues is #1 STOP THE BS #2 REFUND EVERYONE THEIR MONEY #3 GIVE PEOPLE THEIR CAMERAS OR GAS CARDS #4 STOP WASTING PEOPLE'S TIME WITH ALL THE PROMISES AND BS AND THEN TURN AROUND AND TRY TO CHARGE PEOPLE MORE MONEY.

After reading your post, I would like to take this time to reach out to you and find out why you feel this way and if there is anything I can do at this time to better assist you. I work directly with dean and I can speak for the entire company when I say our number one goal is to have 100% of our customers satisfied. Please let me know the situation and what I can do to resolve the problem. If you are an actual customer of ours, all I need you to do is send me an email with your contact information and we will be more than happy to see what we can do to make you a satisfied customer as well. As an FYI, we do not pay off other websites or create false sites to promote our company. As with all businesses we will have very happy and successful students/customers but from time to time, there are customers that may fall through the cracks but we are always here and ready to solve any issue they may have with our company.

I agree with you, except for one thing: Graziosi's PMI confidence tricksters charged me $11,240 for their phony mentoring program.

Mentoring can NOT be done over the phone.

This comment is to a dean empoyee:

PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH!!! :grin :grin

let me ask you a question: How is Dean a generous good hearted man who really cares to help people?? #1 DEAN IS NEVER AT HIS SEMINARS #2 HE SAYS HE'S RICH AND DOESN'T NEED OUR MONEY THEN WHY CHARGE EVERYONE 1497 AND KEEP ON CHARGING PEOPLE IF ITS NOT TO MAKE MONEY FOR HIM AND PEOPLE LIKE YOU??! #3 IF HE'S SO RICH WHERES OUR CAMERAS, GAS CARDS?!! WHY LET EVERYONE SIT THERE FOR 4 HOURS AND DOESN'T SHOW US ANY APPRECIATION FOR US TO COME DOWN THERE AND SIT THERE FOR 4 LONG *** HOURS.... YOU KNOW WHAT'S REALLY FUNNY!!!! ONE OF THE COACHES STARTED TALKING AND THEN STOPPED AND TOLD ONE OF THE OTHER COACHES, HEY IM THIRSTY CAN YOU GIVE ME A WATER BOTTLE?!!! HA WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO SAT THERE IN THE HOT *** CONFERENCE ROOM FOR FOUR LONG DREADFUL HOURS. GIMME A BREAK! Your paycheck is probably the $$ that you helped dean sucked out of hard working, innocent people ! We don't expect handouts, we came to this seminar so we can try and support our families. I work hard and so does everyone who attended this seminar only so you guys can try to rip and suck our money from the hours we put in our jobs!!! just think of the kids that have to suffer b/c people are trying to make a better life for them. They thought by attending this seminar that it would happen and they expect when they give you guys 1497 of their hard working money --b/c money doesn't grow on trees that they would learn something valuable and try to be rich so they can spend more time w/ their family, support their kids and move forward. Now what you guys have done is made things worse for them. SO DON'T TALK ABOUT HOW PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO WORK B/C I SEE PEOPLE EVERYDAY WORKING 2 JOBS AND TRYING TO MEET ENDS. TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR AND IF YOU CAN HONESTLY SLEEP AT NIGHT W/O ANY PROBLEMS THEN YOU DON'T HAVE A HEART AND NEITHER DOES DEAN!!! PEOPLE WITH HEART PROVIDE PEOPLE WITH THE ANSWERS WITHOUT CHARGING OUTRAGEOUS PRICES ON THEIR *** SEMINAR AND THEIR *** BS

Don't Do It... Please...

After listening to all the stuff they had to say. I decided to give it a try. $4500.00 later I changed my mind. I called within the 3 days only to receive a call a couple days later with more ***. Needless to say they didn't refund my money. Mr Graziosi probably didn't get rich doing this business. It's from people like me that went for their line of ***. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it's a duck.... Watch out for them... You won't get your money back.

#107109

Why did it take 4500 for you to find out that Dean's program is a scam? That doesn't make sense to me.

Did you receive everything they promised for the $4500? Was this to join his Success Academy? I ask because I've bought "Think a Little Different" and several other books he's written....nothing costing $4500! I'm curious.

Seems to be more to this story than being told as I've learned a tremendous amount about Real Estate and know this program works....but YOU have to work it! Please elaborate....

#99314

This program is a total rip off. The book is good however.

It does cover basics of real estate. However, its the people(marketers) he has working for him that make Dean a rich man. They called me and wanted 4500. I did tell them I had about 10,000 in credit I could use so of course they were licking their chops in hopes that I would give in.

After about 10 minutes of hesitation something didnt feel right about this. I said no and the guy got really pissed off at me and told me " you will never be a good real estate investor " and a few other words so I hung up on him and realized it was nothing but a scam. They had the nerve to get another coworker on the phone about 30 min later trying to apologize and offered the course for 3500. I still said no.

Unbelievably about a week later, another marketer called and still apologized and offered the program for 2000. These people wont take no for an answer. They called me for a year, I just didnt answer. They dont know anything about real estate people.

They are marketers, trying to make commission off selling a product they no nothing about. Good luck

#77658

Don't listen to the people who THINK they know about real estate investing; they are just full of themselves and don't have anything nice to say about anything they don't understand. The real estate market is depressed and the time to BUY real estate is when the market is depressed.

So NOW is the time to invest. Don't listen to people who don't know squat about investing and don't listen to people who spend money to GET RICH QUICK and then sit on their butt expecting it to magically happen.

I just spent over $11K on Dean's program and expect to make at least that much on my first deal. I KNOW it's possible; I KNOW other people who have done it; and I KNOW if they can do it, SO CAN I!!!

But it AIN'T MAGICALLY gonna' happen; I will have to work for it--at least 10 hours a week!!!

i have no problem with dean graziosi; a very smart guy; instead of puchasing the book off tv other then the fact i had no money(i do not trust infomercials!); i charged out all his books on real estate at my library read them took down notes and returned the books to the library. i tried out everything he said; and i have to say i have been very successful so far.

i am working on aquiring my 4th property now. so my advise to people is before you spend all your money on books and cds from infomercials just try your local library!!!!

Dean and his team are not scam artists. They do indeed provide a service.

It's kind of like when you go to a nice restaurant, order a filet and a bottle of expensive wine. You're all excited about it and the waitress comes over and tells you how great it is going to be. Outstanding, but I think it would be better if you ordered a side of mushrooms, and a salad. They are devine she tells you.

You are so hungry now you go ahead and take her advice. When she comes back with your wine, you take a sip and it is sour. Really sour. You sit there for a moment and think that it is your imagination.

Clearly they wouldn't bring you sour wine in this lovely restaurant. You make mention to the waitress, but she explains that they just had this bottle flown in from Italy and it is supposed to taste that way. You agree, the sour must be because it is imported. Then comes your dinner.

Your stomach is growling. When you look at the filet you notice it is not a filet at all. It looks like a cube steak and the mushrooms and salad are old and and rotting. You complain, but the waitress assures you that these too are exotic, special mushrooms and the salad is supposed to look brown.

This is not a cube steak she says bewildered. This is a filet from a cow we had specially cut for you. Look at all of our happy customers, she says. Looking around the room, indeed everyone looks happy.

You eat what you can of your dinner, and start to think you are going a little crazy, but every time you doubt the meal, someone will come over and say, "isn't this the best restaurant in town?" Then you find yourself believing that you are eating a filet and fabulous wine. When your done with your meal, the bill comes. As you are looking it over, you notice that the mushrooms cost $40,000. That's absurd.

Must be a mistake. You ask the waitress, and she responds by saying that you wanted them. They made your dinner so much better. By now you realize what has happened, you've been ripped off.

Not scammed. Looking around the room you then realize that most of the people in the restaurant are not patrons, they are employees.

You dispute the charges, but you can not refund the merchandise and therefore you must pay. the owners laugh all the way to the bank saying, "can you believe that guy ordered the mushrooms?"

I believe people are getting "ripped off" because when you go to buy his book there are other offers he gives you after purchasing said book. The pages these offers have say "do not close this page if don't want any extra charges" and you have to click an option on the page that have you refuse those offers. I haven't had any problems with my bank account after my transaction.

Man of god? you sound excessively religeous with your cussing and degrading people.

You will sit there and defend someone that you say you trust in this maner isn't going to endear more people to put any kind of money into a program that has people that treat others the way you did. Just a thought.

Ironically in your defense tho. I was reading another one of these about "Dean". Someone commanted on his "employees" copy pasting the same exact statements in these defending him.

Theres several of these "employees" yet they wrote the same exact thing and how great he is. I'm not sure which is worse, your rude degredation of another person, or his companys obvious diverginary tactics. They defend his charachter, but not his comapnies method of doing buisness. Saying you HAVE to spend money to make money.

Thing is, yes you have to work for anything in this workd, and I'm sure it does take some money.

I wouldn't have thought after all of this FREE stuff he talked about that it would cost me access to ANYTHING extra to make a decent start at this. Goes against everything he said in his "program".

Graziosi *** game

Of course, anyone (like me) who would buy a book called "Be a Real Estate Millionaire" is an ***. Nevertheless, to return the book Graziosi requires that you call to get a Return Authorization number. So you phone, they announce their business hours, then they put you in their ***. After periodic updates about where you are in the ***, one of three things happens: 1) the phone disconnects; 2) you are informed that you're not calling during business hours; or 3) you have a chance to leave a message. I "lucked out" 3 times and left a message. No one has ever called me back. The next thing I'm going to do is return the book requiring a signature from the recipient, then give the tracking number to my bank, who will cancel the charge. *** game!!!!! Don't ***.
