I signed up for the Dean Graziosi's Real Estate success Academy. Â I was contacted by a Professional Marketing International (PMI) of Lehi, Utah. Â The salesman on the phone wanted to see if I was good enough. Â (that's the game they play). Â Â Like a dummy I gave them $35,000 from my savings. Â I trusted Dean wan his helpful ways. Â That's why I did it. Â I wish I had known what I know now. Â 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. Â They told me they got my name from the Dean Graziosi Real Estate Success Academy. Â PMI told me that after my 5th deal I would get my money back. Â I did 8. Â Then I had a stroke. Â That's was last year. Â I have been trying for over a year to get my money back from these guys with no luck. Â Â I can't get get the physical therapy I need because these guys still have my money. Â 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. Â I was surprised to find out that Â Â 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. Â This one in particular. Â It describes the tactics. Â Does any of it sound familiar?
It looks like these guys got me good. Â Now, as a senior citizen and disabled person, I am too weak to fight. Â 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. Â I hope you never have to go what I have gone through.
