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!

good marketing???

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

I was very interested in Coastal Vacations, and like many skeptical americans, I went to search for the good, the bad and the ugly before I used my very hard earned, desperately needed money. This is the first thing I have read of Coastal with the exception of the Director that wants me to join. I would like to say, thank you. If I had not read the comments from what I understand to be 'directors', I would have probably taken part in the Coastal Vacations Marketing. You have saved a single mother of three hard earned money and made her realize- everything these companies do, good or bad, still rely on the maturity and honesty of another human being- which seems impossible to find these days.

Thanks again for publicly displaying what little control Coastal has over it's Directors, since you two are allowed to do this childish bantering back and fourth running the companies name through the mud.

Sincerely,

Almost a sucker.....

Karl Jacobsen lies and deception at consumers expense

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

Someone was kind enough to call me this morning and bring to my attention that Karl Jacobsen has posted a LIE claiming I posted a complaint without my name attatched to it. I am here to set the record straight. I did NOT post or have anything to do with the post from Kevin in South Carolina. If and when I post anything you can be assured my name goes on it. I have nothing to hide and can very easily prove my success.

This stunt by Karl seems to me to be an attempted smokescreen to divert the heat surrounding the numerous unhappy people who have fallen victim to the "Coastal Vacations CD" Karl Jacobsen is selling for $4,000. which doesn't even include a label and is NOT approved or authorized by Coastal Vacations.

I get several calls each week from people who at first thought they were getting the deal of the century, only to quickly discover all they really got was a poorly put together CD with worthless releases on it and no one to contact for a refund or training. I get these calls over and over and over again. So like they say... if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and smells like a duck...

More LIES by Karl Jacobsen

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

Karl you are one sick guy for sure. You talk out of both sides of your mouth. You sat and told me Coastal is the only program you were doing. You said you would work with me and help me. Then AFTER you ripped me off, you could not be reached. I learned you are in many programs and you only take peoples money instead of helping them. Why have you not refunded my money? I've emailed, called leaving many messages (since you refuse to return my calls or answer the phone live) and all is to no avail. Karl you are right, you will get what is coming to you and from what I understand it will be very soon.

Kevin, I have searched and you are not my client

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

Kevin:

Your report is false and I challenge you to present your email or phone number so that readers can verify that you indeed DO NOT EVEN exist. It's very unethical to attempt to discredit a competitor with false information, Britt.

For the past ten years I have successfully built people up with my support and training, and have made hundreds of quality relationships based on integrity and quality business practices.

I welcome you to call me if you dare...to rectify your report as it is currently FALSE and MISREPRESENTATIVE.

Here are the FACTS. To date, I have ONLY one customer in South Carolina and he and I did NOT meet in a restaurant, his name is NOT Kevin and he is NOT from Mauldin. In fact, he wrote me a VERY FAVORABLE testinmonial on my website http://www.CoastalSeminar.com - So... get your facts straight! You and I have never done business and you know it. In fact, I'd be willing to bet dollars to donuts that your are simply a pseudonym (get your dictionary out Britt) for a person who's trying to discredit my reputation.

Fortunately, the Universe is the ultimate accounting system and the slander and misrepresentation posted here will return in like kind to whoever posted this false report under the name "Kevin".

I welcome any reader to just look at my track record of success stories in Coastal and any other business in which I have been a rep...Visit: http://www.MakingMillionsPeryear.com to listen to all the HAPPY PEOPLE that I work with, and next time, instead of putting up a false report based on fictional accusations that never happened, call me personally if you have any concerns and I'll happily resolve them to your satisfaction. Thanks.

Coastal Vacations CD by Karl Jacobsen

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

I've spoken to two more people this week who were like me taken by Karl Jacobsen selling a "Coastal Vacations CD". I thought what Karl was telling me was the truth however I later learned that I had NOT gotten the whole story. I was supposed to get a vacation package and lots of other member benefits but Karl choose to simply take my money and leave me to try and figure out the rest on my own. I only hope that one day someone, somewhere, will give Karl what he has coming for ripping people off and not caring about them at all.
