Buyers be aware. This company ripoff innocent cusomers who works hard for their income. I urge anyone to stay away from this fraudelent company!!! I have been trying to get a refund since July 2004. I have spoken to Ryan Palmquest, Sam Chase and left messages for Steve Dzialo.

These people are suppose to be the highest level of management, who have made promises on refunds, but did not follow through. If you value every dollar you earned I beg you not to waste your time and money with this company, they take your money and do not return phone calls.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Don Lapre is not the Saviour, nor is he the answer to your financial woes. He's a charismatic speaker and a brilliant manipulator.

AUTHOR: Former Employee - (U.S.A.)

As a former employee of the company, I can honestly say that I gave a new sense of dignity and morality to the job I performed. My hard work and dedication was rewarded with my supervisors basking in my glory by taking credit for my endeavours. I was never rewarded for my labors, got swept up in office politics and b.s., and finally had to part ways to keep my samity and self-respect...

HOWEVER, I do have respect for the fact that Don keeps on going... He is brilliant at this type of thing. Consumers need to always remember that just because you see it on TV, doesn't mean that the promises made are going to happen for you. ANY business opportunity is exactly that, an OPPORTUNITY. You cannot expect to get rich overnight. Stop giving out your creditcard numbers and sending your checks and money orders in to these types of programs if you cannot afford to lose the money. Don Lapre is not the Saviour, nor is he the answer to your financial woes. He's a charismatic speaker and a brilliant manipulator. The old saying, "a fool and his money are soon parted" are so very true. The INSANE amounts of money that his businesses take in EACH AND EVERY week are truly sickening, because that means that there are so very many fools out there that are STILL being parted from their money.

And, no, I didn't wish to include my real name or info... For I simply wish to forget that I wasted so many years with a company and a business that caused so much hurt to so many unaware people.

Dear Mr. Editor(Ed Magedson)

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

Thank you for your time on the phone regarding this matter. Hopefully, by providing me the info on the person that is falsely representing me on this website, it will be my turn for justice.
Mr. Magedson, I hope you realize the severity of this issue. THIS IS FRAUD. If you a true "savior" of people being rip-offed, then you will remove it ASAP.
I will be pursuing legal matters with you if this isn't removed from your site ASAP.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Charlie "F"abiano is NOT telling it like it is

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

First off, Don Lapre has been on tv for over 15 years and is well known for helping people start their own opportunity. Does EVERYONE do well with it? Absolutely not. Most people do NOTHING with their opportunity once they purchase it. Does everyone honestly expect to get rich without any effort on their own???? Lets wake up people. As far as Charlie "F" goes, this is a guy that made a ton of money working for Don and then went off because he thought the grass was greener at another place. He BEGGED us to come back when he found out that DON actually had a very legit opportunity and Charlie had MORALS and wanted to be back involved here. Oh by the way Charlie, did you mention to all of these fine people reading your crap and lies that YOU were almost indicted in 2003 for security fraud???? Also that you have been jumping from room to room to try to make a quick (legit or not) buck to start your brewery??? We understand that you are mad because your file here is marked NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REHIRE but its ok Chuckie, we still like you.

VITAMINS ARE A TRUE SCAM PRAYING ON PEOPLES BAD HEALTH ..inside information on Donald Lapre

AUTHOR: TRUTH HURTS - (U.S.A.)

THIS FRAUDULANT COMPANY SENDS EACH CLIENTS WEB SITE FAKE SALES AND NAMES ACTING AS IF THEY ARE SELLING THE PRODUCT.

LAPRE CLAIMS HE WILL PAY 1000 DOLLARS FOR EVERY 20 SALES OF A VITAMIN BOTTLE THAT COSTS 39.95 THATS MORE PAID THAN WHAT HE TAKES IN FOR THE VITAMIN COMPARE 1000 TO LESS 800 DOLLARS????? WHAt!!!

HIS COMPANY KEEPS SELLING THEIR CLIENTS NEW PROGRAMS AND ADVERTISING PROGRAMS WHILE SENDING FAKE SALES AND NAMES THAT SEEM TO BE THE SAME NAMES ON MOST OF HIS WEB SITES OVER AND OVER AGAIN .

IF YOUR WEB SITE SAYS 12 SALES U THINK ITS WORKING SO U BUY THE NEW PROGRAMS THINKING ITS MAKING MONEY SOON THERE SALES REPS ARE TRAINED TO BE LIKE SHARKS TAKIN THE CUSTOMERS LAST DIMES. TOP PACKAGE IS 3500 AND THEY LIKE TO SELL IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. LAPRE IS PROUD TO SCAM THE SICK PEOPLE IN USA CLAIMING HIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD CLAIMING IT HELPS CANCER PATIENTS , LIVER AND KIDNEY DISEASE, EVEN HEART PROBLEMS, BUT NOT EVEN APPROVED BY THE FDA.

THE MAN THAT INVENTED THE VITAMIN DOUG GRANT OWNS MULIPLE VITAMIN SHOPS IN ARIZONA AND JUST CREATED THE SAME PRODUCT UNDER DONS NEW NAME SO HE DOES GET ROYALTIES OFF THIS SCAM AND ITS THE SAME PRODUCT HE SELLS ON HIS SHELVES JUST RENAMED AND REBOTTLED ..

HIS OWN BROTHER IN LAW RUNS THE SALES FLOOR RAY VALENZUELA AND OVERSEES AND APPROVES OF THE SCHEMING WAYS AND TRAINS HIS STAFF TO TAKE AS MUCH $$$$ FROM THE INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO BUY HIS ORIGINAL 35 DOLLAR INFOMERCIAL PACKAGE.

BUYERS BE WARE TAKE IT FROM AN EX EMPLOYEE WHO HAD TO LEAVE WHEN THE TRUTH WAS EXPOSED!!! CBS DID A STORY ON DON JUAN LAPRE ...LOL BUT NOTHING RESULTED OF THE SCAM REPORT HE IS STILL IN BUSINESS GROSSING 400,000 IN SALES ALONE IN ONE OFFICE.
