morning while getting ready for work. Sounded good - actually - too good to be true, so I
did a websearch on Carlton Sheets. Top of the list was infomercialscams.com. After reading
the complaints am I glad I didn't call. Talking with some engineers at work this morning
and one had a relative who had similar difficulties with Sheets's organization as reported
here. I don't know if Sheets or some companies he uses is the problem and I don't really
care, but, I consider myself very lucky not to have taken the risk.

watched this informercial last night and was going to order (Natural Cures), but then
decided to do a little research on the net first and am I glad I did. I have a limited
income and do not need to spend any money on scams! Thanks for speaking up!
5/6/2005 - Sarah writes: I think I speak for everyone when I
say THANK YOU!! What a awful scam. I think the worst thing about this course is Carlton
Sheets commerical doesn't target wealthy people, but the ones who cherish every dime they
have. We then willingly sign up for this scam to try and make a living the
"easy" way. He says in the commercial "I was out of work and in serious
credit card debit" SURE!! I think Mr. Sheets has it all wrong your suppose to steal
from the rich and give to the poor. Not steal from the poor to get rich!!

going to order the books for a $39.95 feee, I figured , why not. As soon as I saw
his website is not a secure site, I decided not to put my credit card information on it.
Then I did a search on the web and came up with all this scam business. Glad I did!
Sorry for all the people he is taking advantage of.

they've been victim to as a result of not seeing it in time. I thought for a change
you might like to recieve one from someone who hasn't. I saw Carlton Sheets
infomercial every night for the past week and I've been giving serious consideration to
calling the number and getting the course. I'm in a precarious financial situation
right now and I've been looking to get into real estate investing to become self employed.
I do two things when I see an infomercial and have an urge to buy the advertised
product. first, I smash myself in the face 30 or 40 times with a golf club, and if I
still have the urge, I do a google search for the name of the person pushing the product.
In this case, a google search of the name "Carlton Sheets" came up with
this as the first result, in big red letters "INFOMERCIALSCAMS.COM" I decided
right then! that I wasn't buying the course and now that I've read what your
correspondents have to say about it, I'm glad I didn't... THANK YOU! Just so
you know I'll continue to persue real estate as a career option, but will seek reputable
sources for information, for now, that's limited to information freely available on the
web. thank you again.

NO CREDIT, NO EXPERIENCE. And yet, in order to call, you MUST be able to provide a
Credit Card #. I guess although it is possible to buy real estate w/o credit, it is
not possible to buy the C.S. program without it. Go figure. That struck me as odd, and now
I see your site. Whew! Am I glad I didn't call!

false belief that those who are rich want to help you! they don't! they would
keep it allfor themselves. I know everyone is angry, and asks how can this scum

why would they be not be shut down. Why would he continue to advertise on reputable

Except for the green return card, I never DID hear back from the manufacturer. It
