ED Magedson – Founder
Real Talk Network1333 W. 120th Ave., #113 Westminster, Colorado United States of America
I signed up with Real Talk in March of 2009. After several "coaching" sessions, it became apparent that the counselors do not know what they're doing and that the program in general has major flaws. But for me the clincher was when a coach INSTRUCTED me to file a false claim for a business loan (for a non-existing business), even citing the exact amount of projected income I should claim, in order to obtain working capital. The coach even went so far as to name the organization with whom I should file this fraudulent claim.
Since July I have been trying to get a refund. Not only did Real Talk NOT keep their "promise" to help me be debt free in less than two years, but they put me further in debt by charging me $1997 to do absolutely nothing.
I have contacted Real Talk through phone, email, and fax. At the beginning, I did get one response from someone named BRANDON CHADBOURNE (probably a fake) in which I was instructed to complete a "Request for Contract Review". I did this, attached all supporting documentation, including the instruction to file a false claim for a business loan, and faxed it as instructed. I was told it would take 7-10 business days to review and come up with a decision. That was 6 WEEKS ago. I have called and left more messages with no reply, and I have called when there is no answer machine to take a message. I have sent additional emails to Mr. Chadbourne; his email address no longer works.
I have decided my next step is to attend a meeting and speak up in front of every single person there to identify this group as a fraud...a scam to get $2K from people already hoping for help, not more debt. Real Talk Corporate should be arrested and I intend to help them get as close to that as humanly possible. JOIN ME????
