So, still shut out of any of the alleged resources offered, I started trying to take the classes which were applicable to my situations. However, out of the 19 classes offered, virtually none were scheduled for the New York metropolitan area, where I had attended the original seminar. I did manage to take "Creative Real Estate Financing", which was taught by an extremely right wing and unpleasant egomaniac, assisted by his son. I asked a good number of questions, feeling like an imbecile each time for having to interrupt. Midway through, during a break, I apologized to the other members of the class for wasting time that they were also paying for. "No," they all said- "we have a lot of the same questions. We just don't have the courage to ask. Please don't stop questioning him- it helps us". I finished the class somewhat informed, but feeling largely battered.
A couple of months later, I began getting emails and calls from Tiffany, informing me in a fairly aggressive manor that I had better get on with it, because at the end of two years everything I paid for would expire and I would get nothing. I was receiving emails every 2-3 months of class scheduling, but the ones I needed were pretty much never in my area. I did eventually get a class near Newark airport, which was pretty good, but required over 5 hours of commuting each day because I don't have a car. That one was Property Management and Cash Flow. Taught by an approachable and easy going guy- was good and informative, and will be fairly helpful in the future.
The only other class in my area which was pertinent was on a weekend when I was out of town. Called Tiffany, and got a lecture as she read me all the dates and times she had contacted me in the past (not bothering to take into account that over half of them had involved unsuccessful attempts to get me in touch with Scott, and told me that if I didn't get the classes done I'd lose them. Period.
No longer comfortable trying to speak with Tiffany, I called another guy at Rich Dad (now Tigrent) who had seemed somewhat sympathetic when I had reached him inadvertently in the past. I told him of my dilemma, and asked if I could at least get the DVDs of the two classes I wanted in lieu of attending the actual classes, which were not scheduled in my area any time before the expiration of Tigrent's commitments to me. He got it done, and a couple of weeks after, Tiffany called me to record me confirming that I was forfeiting the classes I had paid at least $5,000 each for.
I did manage to get the mentor thing scheduled before I was cut out of the program, and it was pretty helpful. He also sympathized with my experience, saying that he had heard a good number of stories of abysmal customer service like mine.
In the end, I feel that they hosed me pretty well, to the tune of about $10,000. But I still get emails from them trying to sell me more of their "services".
If you want to learn about real estate, try some basic courses in the areas you need, but do it at some reputable local place which charges reasonable rates for the classes.
DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS GROUP. They are interested only in selling you more and more stuff- not providing education and services.
