Almost got scammed. Used my better judgement and mentioned to the start up specialist that they were trying to scam me. I knew immediately that this was a fact by his instant reaction and outrage. The first time they called me I told them that I had $15,000 worth of credit on my car. Coincidentally the fee for the consuting was only $15,000. They tried to convince me that the $15,000 was not using my money but the credit card money instead.hello.. if its my credit car then I am responsible for the money so it IS indeed my money (what idiots they are) 2 Months later I get another call from them. a lady this time. She spoke very nice and soft to ensure me that this was all legitimate. When asked what my credit card limit was, to test her I said $5000 this time. Guess what the special offer was for my consulting fee..only $5000 this time. After talking for 20 minutes I talked the fee down to $4000. Wasnt that nice of them to give me such a good deal. I then told her to take a hike and that the entire thing was a scam. She turned from an angels voice to a demon in 1 second flat..wow was she mad. I havent laughed so hard in a long time. I hope they call me a 3rd time as I could use the entertainment of them trying so hard to scam money out of me. Sure, I was scammed the original $40, but I am getting my moneys worth in entertainment every time they call. Save your money and stay as far away from John Beck products as you can. SCAM!!! Tell every one you know.

I ordered the program about 4 months ago. My mom told me that she also ordered the program so when mine arrived, I did not open it I sent it back. I still have not yet recieved my refund. I have contacted them by phone they keep telling me that they did not show that it came back and that I should call back in few days. I worked for the post office at one point and I know that this package was a delivery conformation. That means when a carrier picks it up the package gets scanned. They shyould have recieved the package back by know and I am getting very impatient waiting for them to return my money. The address it was shipped to was 43A Meadow Dr. Schuylkill Haven, PA 17972

I purchased the infomercial of $69 but later leceived a phone call to join a investment program with mentoring and weekly counseling. After several memberof the program called me I was persuaded to buy the join the team for $8500, which would start me off with 10 weeks of mentoring help on tax liens. My husband felt I had been dooped and closed accounts. The $8500 went thru and showed interest on the next statement befor the week was up. I called and canceled the program befor the 1st material were delivered. Received letter of cancellation. Returned 3 packages un opened by Fed-x. Awaiting return phone call and money.

I just found this website. I was scammed for $7485 by these crooks from John Becks Mentoring Info service. My mentor only called once and has not called back since. Nothing was as Promised. In fact it was made to fail. They said no one that has taken this course has ever not meet thier goals using thier mentoring course. They lied. I want to know why there is not a Class action against all the Credit Card Companies and the Media For allwoing this scam to continue? I for one am ready to have it go into a major class action against these people. WHere are the lawyers willing to take this one bacue it will be a big win in court from reading your site. My credit card company is a Mastercard Sears through Citicorp. Who wants to join? [email protected]  Subject "Class Action John Beck"

I do not recommend the mentoring system. I was willing to spend the $40 to check out the program. A salesperson called me and suckered me into paying $1600 for the mentoring service. They guaranteed they would walk me through my first sale.....NOT! I only had a few phone calls from my mentor which consisted of him asking me if I was serious....a whole phone call wasted on the first phone call. The next phone call he wanted me to go look at "for sale by owner" homes. After that, my mentor avoided me. I called, left messages, etc. I never heard back from him. I sent several e-mails and left several messages, but no one called me back or responded to my complaints. No one answers the phone when you call. I believe it is a scam because there is no mentoring involved! What was I paying for? A recommendation to look at a few homes? I could have figured that out on my own!! Save your money!

About two months ago I saw Beck's infomercials and since I needed money ,well I thought that this sistem could work.Why not? it was coming out on "tv" after all.Who would think that the "media" would make everybody watch a real scam.I still can't believe it. So I fall for it and I started out by buying the books wich were not at all of any help,they're just a bunch of web pages that anybody could know about and the other books were about other things I already knew.It seemed suspicous to me but went onto the next step cause' still thought bout' the informercial coming out on tv.I would've never thought that this could be SCAM you know,a "real TV SCAM". After I called upon this people just to find out they convince me to invest some money $1500 after I did they never called back and I had to tell my finance company that Iwas been scamed so that I can get my money back. I did my money back after two month of waiting. BEWARE JOHN BECK'S IT'S A REAL SCAM

My husband & I are hardworking people.We like so many others were looking for a way to make money and insure when we retired we could live well. We were called by a rep and then smooshed by the big guns of a rep called Jason Day. We released our credit card # to the tune of 10,499.00 then within an hour called back to say we changed our mind & to say we will cancel with our credit card. Something smelled fishy. We called our credit card visa and told them what happened the rep told me he would check and take charges off our card. We thought we were fine. Today we get a bill and those bastards did charge our card. We received a pkg & immediately sent it back and have filed an arbitration with our credit card. The next step is a lawyer. Do not get involved with these crooks. I hope we can get our money back. But it looks pretty bleak to me. What fools we feel like now. And Mr beck if you and your croonies are reading this. I hope you rot in hell.
I ordered a real-estate program called John becks' free and clear plan.the problem is that i haven't received it yet. I order it one week before thanks givin of 2001. On January 5 of this year i called them back, they told me that the reason i hadn't receive it yet was that they were out of stock. She told me that they had received a new shipment in a week before i called and should be receiving my order with in four to six weeks(even though i paid for express shipping). It's very hard to reach them by phone and when i e-mail them, they do not respond. please help and thank God for your web site!
I ordered the John Beck product and it was suppose to be mailed out March 6 and when I called back 4 times somebody else told me it was sent March 4th. I called again today which is March 12th they told me it was shipped out March 4th again. Now it doesn't take eight days to ship a product from California unless it was lossed in the mail. They also said that if you don't receive it give us a call back. I try to call back, but the line is either busy or it just constantly rings with no answer. I don't were this product is, but I am getting very aggravated with this BS. Some of the reps I sometimes do talk to either have a bad attitude or just plain stupid and don't what the hell is going on.
I have ordered through TV commercial JBeck Free & Clear package Sep 11, 2001 and to date did nor receive it. I have been in contact with Brandon Dell at J Beck's Office, but he has not helped me getting the materials. The shipping company ph. 1-800-457 0825, Brandon provided, has busy signal and there is no way to communicate with them. From my perspective I was skimmed off $52.45.
I ordered this kit one month ago, paid extra for express delivery and still haven't received the product. No one will answer the phone at the customer service number and the website doesn't exist.
I ordered John Becks Real Estate program and my debit card was charged twice and I still have not received the program. I tried calling customer service and the phone just rings. I tried to e-mail them but the e-mail is not any good. My next call is to the Attorney General.
Advertised purchasing homes & properties for only the amount of taxes due. Sent check for required amount ($49.90) on February 7, and it was cashed on February 21, 2002. Have not recieved one piece of information from them. The back of the check says: PAY TO THE ORDER OF CITY NATIONAL BANK 122016066 FOR DEPOSIT ONLY FAMILY PRODUCTS LLC AMAZING PROFITS 412868862. Havetried unsuccessfully to reach them at the 800 number in the daytime. When I placed original call, it was approximately 5 am Eastern Standard Time. I just saw the ad again a few mornings ago. I have tried reaching their customer service number several times, and they claim there will be a 20 minute wait (I have waited in excess of this 20 minutes) and the phone just continues to ring on that end. I don't have the mailing address at hand, but I guarantee you I will get it, and forward it to you. I am on disability, so my income is limited, and this hurts.
I placed order on Feb 6 2002 paid by electronic check, I called 1-800-343-7440 back after about 3 weeks to find out where my product was. I was given the customer service phone # 1-800-457-0825. I was told that the order can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks. As of today it has been 6 weeks and I still have not received John Beck's Free & Clear program. I have tried to call customer service & get no answer, the line is transferred but no one is answering. I paid $49.90 and I want my product. I called 1-800-368-0486 which I found on the internet under John Beck and was once again referred to customer service which I explained that they are not answering the phone, and the E-Mail address is boggus. I was then given another E-mail address that led me to you. I don't think that Mr. Beck would appreciate knowing that he has been represented by this scam. Here are a listing of the Phone #s & E-Mail addresses. (1) ordered from this # 1-800-343-7440. Recalled and given customer service # 1-800-457-0825. Called customer service again today no answer tried to locate on internet nothing accept the notice of a scam. I scearched for John Beck and got a page to order same program with different phone # 1-800-368-486 which I called & was once again given costumer services phone # which is still not answering. I am totally PO'd. Watch yourself when you order anything from TV.
I don't know why I get this site when I type [email protected], but I'm here, and apparently this is where complaints are posted, so here goes. On 2-22-02, I purchased the john beck free and clear real estate system from an infomercial on tv. As of today, 3-23-02, I have not received the product, nor have I received any correspondence as to why it has been delayed. If there is a legitimate reason for the delay, it seems to me that it would be good business practice to inform the customer. If this is just a scam, I will pursue the matter as far as possible.
I ordered this book from the 1-800-457-0825 and put the charge on my visa card. The charge showed the transaction was processed on 01/22/02. I have called this number and it is a recording saying hold for a representative, which never comes on. Their e-mail, [email protected] does not work. As of 03/28/02 I have not received the book.
Ordered the Real Estate system and never rec'd the product... and of course they billed my credit card! Their contact email doesn't exist, and received no help from their 800 nbr.
Hi! My name is Cindy and I am a college student. I have just given birth to my first child on October 8th of 2002 and ordered the John Beck's Free and Clear Plan in hopes of making money to help with my expenses. I ordered the product on October 3, 2002 and have recieved nothing as of December 5, 2002. My mother and I have a joint account and she is currently switching banks. I gave the routing and check number to a company rep. when placing my order and fortunately they have not withdrawn the $52.90 for my order. My mother called to see where the product was and she was given a customer service number where noone ever answers. She again called the 1-800 number I got off the infomercial and the man told her customer service didn't open until 8:00. That's when we decided to track down my order on the website he gave her. Needless to say I found this instead. My mother just left to go ahead and close out our account. Thank goodness they haven't withdrawn our money. But what will happen if they try to withdraw the money and the account is closed? I would hate to pay extra charges for a product that is obviously a scam produced merely to line someone else's pocket. I see a lawsuit coming on!
Another billing issue.. I was charged twice for the free and clear package.. I was lucky enough to get two packs in the mail and after speaking to customer service they told me to send the product back. It's been a few weeks and I've heard nothing about my refund for their inaccurate order fullfillment dept.
