First Karl offers me a free vacation for listening to a call. When I asked for the Free vacation to help me make my trip to Florida to tend his FREE seminar, the request was completely ignored.
Needless to say, Karl had already suckered me in by a sales ad that suggested he will make me $24,000 by Christmas.... this is the line I fell for. Considering, I could have used $24,000 by Christmas.
So far it has cost me Five thousands to join. ($3300 was for Karl's commission & $1200 was for his so called web sites & advertising. The advertising he charged me for I never received.) (Mind you, I joined Karl 12-04-04. Today is 1/17/05) I have received NOTHING from Coastal at all. No package & No ID #. As a matter of fact... Coastal has no clue I even exist. (You can not do the business without an ID #)
However I did receive Karls magic marker written CD that he told me to make 100 copies of. He also was kind enough to charge me $550 for 4 web sites that contain old & out dated information. Along with the websites came dead end links, disconnected phone numbers & it tells each of my visitors that I will also send to them a copy of Karls DVD.
So now Im going to the 9pm & 10 PM training meetings to get answers about my 4 websites, But no one knows what Im talking about because I am not even on the same page as the rest of the other Coastal Directors. So I am told to get back with my Director. My Director Karl has lots of phone numbers & e-mail addresses but I cant seem to reach him after several attemps. Nor do I have a clue as to whom any of my other team members are that Karls is always referring too. Finally after days & days & many attemps to reach Karl, I blocked my phone number & he answered the call.
I told Karl That I had been speaking to lots of other Top Directors in Coastal & I was informed that Karls Directors RELEASES were not valid. Karl was selling to me a program that he knew he had no right or authority to sell me. So I simply asked for my money back....
Karl flat out refused & said that I have been talking to negitive people & "I should stop sounding like Im ready to jump off a plank & drop into the sharks". and that he was not in the refunding business.
Well this is what I get for $4500?????? I thought to myself. So I went to my attorney. This now has so far cost me an additional $500.
I have a CD from Karl that is useless. Director releases that are worthless. No training calls or team members to work with. I have given to Karl my last $4500. Explained to Karl that I just had my truck repossessed, & had NO Christmas for myself or my children this year in hopes of starting this business.
Because of loosing my truck I had also lost my job.... so starting Coastal was Paramount to my survival.
Karl took my money & left. Karl is not in good standings with the Coastal opportunity, However he continues to market & reproduce his own deceptive short cut version of the Coastal opportunity.
Any one else thinking of joining the Coastal Vacations Opportunity should beware that KARL JACOBSENS COASTAL VACATION CD is a SCAM.
Now if I should want to rejoin the Coastal opportunity with an other Director.... It will cost me $3995 again plus 2 roll up sales plus advertising again or a buy in price of as much as the next individual Director chooses to charge me.
Beware of Karl Jacobsen & his CD! Karl got me and at least 9 other people that I am aware of in the month of December.
Bottom line.... Dont let Karl get you too.
