Trump Institute....DO NOT waste your time or money, this is a rip off. Everything you read here is true it's nothing but carrot and stick. Since I've gone there I have read about six books for the cost of about $200 and learned ten times what I learned at Trump FOR THE COST OF $2,000.

If you have any questions during the seminar they tell you to call the "hot line". You are told numerous times as well to call the "hot line" throughout the seminar and you are ensured that you are part of the Trump family, and they will see to it that you suceed because they care. You are under Trump's wing now!!!

So a few days after the seminar I had a question regarding my credit score and working to improve it, which they give a very brief explaination of during the seminar. So I called the "hot line" and was asked some very basic questions. After about maybe a minute the person on the end of the phone told me that I as "unique" and that Trump was gathering a gorup of "special" people for a new and exciting project. Yes that's right and out of the thousands of people that call only ten would be selected and currently only three openings were left and going fast!!!

Before I knew it I was wisked away to another extension, someone named Todd who hit me with about 45 minutes of high pressure sales. I resisted through the entire thing and the lengths he went to were phenomenal. He told me to sell everything I could my car, my personal belonging etc. to pay for this once in a life time $25,000 experience, because I'm worth it and I owe it to my family!!! As I continued to resist he then asked me about my 401K and if I was willing to close that out.
Needless to say my polite tone quickly began to change. To divert him I asked him about my original question about my credit score and could he help me out. He quickly dogged the questioned and moved right back to his sales pitch. He told me he would be calling me back on the weekend @ 1:00pm and if I needed to call him back feel free but reinforced that I needed to call promptly at 1:00p because he had an "important meeting" just prior that of course was to discuss me with his superiors to see if qualified. I called him at 12:30p and left him a message and said forget about it I'm not interested.
I truly feel for Trumps employees it was pathetic to watch and even more pathetic that I fell for it. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID!!!!
