I met Karl Jacobsen in a restaurant where he claimed he was passing through on his way back from a business trip. He led me to belive he was in good standing with a Company called Coastal Vacations and that he was authorized to sell a CD bearing the name "Coastal Vacations CD". Karl Jacobsen lied to me and told me he was only working the Coastal Vacations program and that he would be there for me anytime I needed him for training and support.
I learned the following day (after Karl got me for $4,000.00) that he lied to me about only being in Coastal Vacations and that he is currently involved in at least a dozen other "programs", everything from a Viagra alternative to a outrageous claim that people can spend $12.25 and make back 1.2 million in a year!!!!
If I had know about this deception and obvious lies, I would NEVER have spent any money with anything that has Karl Jacsobsen's name attached or associated in it in any way.
And to make matters worse, BEFORE I gave him the money, I could reach him all the time. AFTER he duped me and lied to me to extract $4,000.00 from me, it took me almost 30 days to reach him by phone. And that was only after I tried blocking my number first!!!
And then after I finally did get Karl on the phone, he went into this song and dance routine about how he didn't have time to speak with me and that he was busy. When asked how he could sleep at night knowing he was ripping people off everyday, he replied that he didn't like the tone of the call and that he was going to end it!!!!!!!!!!
And the icing on the cake in this whole mess is that I later discovered that Karl Jacobsen is BANNED from Coastal Vacations because the CD that he is selling is NOT approved or authorized by the company! I also found out that Karl Jacsobsen is red flagged at the companies shipping centers and that he can not longer even sell the product!
Now Karl is not even sending packages to people which of course is ILLEGAL and after speaking with several other Coastal directors and the owners of the company, Karl Jacobsen is under review by not only Coastal Vacations, but other "authorities" as well.
My advice to anyone thinking of doing business with Karl Jacobsen is to RUN, don't walk. RUN the other direction as fast as you can and do NOT stop until you are FAR away from this man. He will take your money and then try to convince you that he is the only person in Coastal that knows what is really going on and that everyone else is jealous of him.
DON'T BUY INTO THIS DECEPTION AND DESPERATE HYPE. IF YOU DO YOU WILL GET TAKEN FOR YOUR MONEY JUST LIKE I WAS!
