I recently was called by the Summit Group aka Brightbuilders and was duped into buying there "Internet Coaching" for $6,734 to start an ecommerce business.

They use a very well scripted "qualifying people for the program" scheme to sign you up. They basically want to know if you've got money or credit to buy into one of their packages. But BEWARE! They will direct you to the BBB to legitimize their business and then show you a successful site or two like Handsontools.com to prove their success and talk a big game. But the company they show you on BBB is not even them but a subcontracted group i.e. Brightbuilders. They will ask you to commit to them 100% and have you state that you will not quit, basically anything to try to trap you and prevent you from ever trying to get your money back from there scam.

These people present themselves very honest and sincere at first but once you get wind of there ploy they get very rude. I found out of these practices a few days after enlisting with them and told them that I no longer wanted to pursue any dealings with them and that I wanted my money back. They told me that I'm a quitter and that I could write it off as a tax loss or "take this as a lesson".

I have sent complaints to several state and local agencies and I will continue to do so. These people are some of the biggest crooks I've encountered. I want to share my experience to help stop this from happening to others.

#1 Author of original report

Refund! Received from Summit Group within ten days of this posting.

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

I'm pleased to announce here that I have received a full refund of my money from the Summit Group. I received the refund within ten days of this posting. Erik Largin and Meagan were helpful and seemed eager to resolve my complaint. I can't speak positively about anybody else at the Summit Group though. For anyone experiencing a similar challege just keep in mind that you do have rights as a consumer no matter what any salesman tells you. If anyone really wants insight on these groups or are thinking of investing hard earned money to something that sounds so wonderful, please do me favor and watch the movie Boiler Room. Then come to your own conclusions.

Yes Bright Builders Is A Rip Off And Dave Keizer Is King

AUTHOR: Sebastian - (U.S.A.)

Yes in deed bright builders is a rip off, the king of them all is the owner of executive mareketing his name is Dave Kiezer. Dave has been involved with several differnt marketing scams from real estate to internet businness. he has worked for companys that have been shut down by the state of utah just to go out on his own to start his business. And to bring in the same work from home scams just with differnt names like michael warren. a debt settlement co. "right" his new company is building wealth institute. Dave keizer buys leads from companys like surplus alert and creates his own lead from mailers for book and video orders. Taking advantage of people trying to make money from home. they prey on the old and elderly as well as the weak. I know this because I am An ex employee Of Dave Keizer. and i have seen him in action first hand. There are people whom make money with these programs but they are few and far between. I belive that those who do could have done it on there own anyways. I hope that this message gives some insight to those about to take the plunge. If you are dealing with Dave Keizer or anyone afiliated with him do not give him or her your credit card number or any cash...
