SPECIAL UPDATE: On May 31, 2011, the United States Federal Trade Commission issued a press release announcing that it has filed a lawsuit against Russ Dalbey and others. The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that the Dalbey Education Institute made false and misleading statements to customers of its Winning in the Cash Flow Business. As always, the FTCs press release includes a disclaimer which notes: The complaint is not a finding or ruling that the defendant has actually violated the law. In other words, like any other court matter, the mere fact that an allegation has been made does not mean that the allegation has been proven.

This news has unusual significance to the Ripoff Report for one reason Dalbey Education Institute is a member of our Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program or Corporate Advocacy Program or CAP, and they have been an active participant of that program for many years. As you may know, CAP is a program that is intended to help resolve disputes between companies and their unhappy customers. One of the key components of this program is our requirement that in order to participate, the member company must make a serious commitment to 100% customer satisfaction, including giving refunds when requested. In addition, the company must promise to take steps to investigate and correct any existing corporate cultural or operational issues that resulted in the company receiving complaints in the first place. In this way, our program is intended to help protect consumers and also to help companies find new ways to reduce complaints before they even occur. Of course, the CAP program is not a guarantee that every customer will always be completely thrilled. Rather, because we know that even the best companies can and will receive complaints from time to time, our CAP program is intended to help facilitate the resolution of complaints in a timely and fair manner.

Our agreement with each Corporate Advocacy Program participant includes written requirements for the company to make these promises and also to keep them, both to Ripoff Report and, more importantly, to the consumers who ultimately decide where to spend their hard-earned dollars. Over the past several years, the vast majority of our CAP members have lived up to their promises which is why we have been so confident in telling you, our readers, about the benefits of the program and all of the reasons why you should do business with any company that participates in the program. (Rip-off Report started in business about 13 years ago. The CAP program did not start until about 3 years later.)

Because the integrity of the program is so important to us, if it becomes clear that a CAP member is not fulfilling their obligations to consumers, we will not hesitate to terminate our relationship with them. At this time, the claims against Dalbey have NOT been proven and like anyone else, they are entitled to respond to the claims against them and although the case against them is civil, not criminal, we believe the company should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Nevertheless, as part of our primary mission of keeping consumers informed, we wanted to bring this matter to your attention. Put simply, we do not know if the claims and allegations that have been made against Dalbey are true or not, but this situation has nevertheless placed us in a position where we feel it is appropriate to err on the side of caution. For that reason, we feel it was necessary to inform the public of these events.

Again, we do not know if the charges against Dalbey are true, and we certainly hope that they are not. In our experience, Dalbey has done a good job of responding to and addressing customer complaints which is why we have been pleased to allow them to participate in our Corporate Advocacy Program. Of course, we will keep you updated with any further news or information as it becomes available to us.

==================================

What Is The Corporate Advocacy Program?

If you have a business with lots of Ripoff Reports or other types of complaints, youre probably asking yourself three basic questions:

1. What can you do to resolve existing complaints from unhappy customers?

2. How can you identify, isolate and fix the customer service or other issues that cause most complaints?

3. What can you do to increase customer satisfaction and prevent future complaints?

Because every business is different, finding a common solution to these questions is not easy. In addition, because they are so close to the situation, many business owners have a difficult time seeing the problems that exist or even admitting that they have a problem in the first place.

Thats where Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program (or CAP) comes in. Despite the long name, our CAP program is really very simple. Using our years of experience in the consumer complaint industry, we have developed the CAP program which we believe is the #1 most effective way to help business owners regain control over the operational, organizational, and other issues which generate the majority of complaints.

Now, some people claim that the CAP program works like this join the program, pay a fee to Ripoff Report, and well remove the complaints. Nothing could be further from the truth. Removing complaints (which is NEVER part of the program) is like putting a band-aid on skin cancer. It temporarily conceals the problem, but it does nothing to fix it. Thats why the Corporate Advocacy Program does NOT involve removal of complaints.

Rip-off Report knows from many years of experience that consumers love to do business with a company or individual that can demonstrate how they fixed problems and made things right with those from the past. Consumers have more respect for a business that can show how good they took care of their customers and when they can admit, maybe there were mistakes made and demonstrate how they erred on the side of their customer. Who wouldnt want to do business with that company?

Okay, if we dont remove complaints for CAP members, what DO we do? A lot, actually. Although the program is tailored to the specific needs of each member, we generally include at least three basic steps in every plan we create for our members. STEP 1 - ADMIT THERE'S A PROBLEM

The first and most important thing we do is to get our CAP members to understand our philosophy you cant tell an unhappy customer that they are wrong (even if they are wrong). Trying to resolve the complaint of an angry customer by telling them they are wrong is like trying to extinguish a fire by smothering it with gasoline. Try that sometime and let us know if it works.

So, we start by asking companies to admit that if customers are unhappy enough to post complaints, then regardless of whether the business sees them or not, problems must exist that need to be investigated and fixed. If thats something you dont agree with, then CAP isnt for you.

STEP 2 - FIX THE PROBLEM

The second thing we do for CAP members is to reach out to all the unhappy customers who filed a complaint on Ripoff Report and see what can be done to make things right. How do we do this? We send an email to every person who has posted a complaint on Ripoff Report asking how we can resolve their complaint. Some people want refunds. Some want an apology. Some people were already taken care of and were not in need of any further assistance. Whatever it is, we let these unhappy customers know that the company involved has joined our Corporate Advocacy Program and has made a commitment to 100% customer satisfaction. Of course, you cant please all of the people all of the time so we dont expect companies to give a $1 million refund to a customer who was unhappy with a $10 transaction, but during this step we expect our CAP members to talk to their customers and find an acceptable solution to their complaint.

The goal of the second step is two-fold. First and most obviously, we want to see existing complaints resolved so that customer is satisfied. Second, we want to be able to show consumers proof that the CAP member has made steps to fix the problems which are causing complaints. Honestly, educated consumers know that EVERY business receives complaints. Thats not what is important. Instead, smart consumers only care about one thing what did the company do to fix the complaint? If the company acted quickly, fairly, and reasonably, then the complaint can actually be viewed as positive proof that the company will stand behind its product/service if a problem occurs in the future (as they usually do).

STEP 3 - PREVENT FUTURE COMPLAINTS

The third thing we do relates to prevention of future complaints. After the CAP member has communicated with anyone who posted a complaint in the past, the business owner should have a pretty good understanding of what caused those complaints in the first place. Armed with that knowledge, the business owner can then focus on making operational changes as needed to remedy that root cause.

But what happens if a future complaint is received about a CAP member? While we hope this wont happen, the reality is that sometimes it will. When it does, Ripoff Report will act as a liaison between the CAP member and the customer. We will immediately forward the complaint to the company and ask them to investigate and respond with the expectation that whatever the problem is, it will be promptly fixed to the customers satisfaction. If the company refuses to make things right, we will take whatever steps are necessary including terminating our relationship with the company if necessary. At the end of the day, we expect CAP members who make good faith efforts to change their practices and follow our advice will see a huge decrease in complaints and a huge increase in customer satisfaction and new business.

ARE THERE OTHER OPTIONS? YES!


Although we feel strongly that Ripoff Reports CAP program is extremely useful for many businesses, we know it is not right for everyone. If you are an individual, or if you only have a handful of complaints then the program is probably not a good solution for you. Also, if you believe that all of the reports against your company are untrue or were written by angry ex-employees, then the program may or may not be right for you. We only want to work with companies who agree that change is needed, so if thats not you, then you should look into other solutions. But what other options are there? Quite a few!

First, you always have the option of posting a rebuttal that explains your side of the story. Rebuttals are 100% free, and when done correctly, they can turn a negative complaint into a positive example of why your customers should trust you. Want a good example? Take a look at this rebuttal from a company called Overnight Mattress: http://www.ripoffreport.com/Bed-Bath/Overnightmattress-co/overnightmattress-com-over-n*g-355ee.htm This is exactly how a company can turn a negative into a positive by stepping up and showing that it is willing to customers. After reading this, who wouldnt want to do business with Overnight Mattress? (Full Disclosure Overnight Mattress is NOT a member of our CAP program nor have they paid us a dime. Weve never even talked with them. We just think this company is a good example of how to use a rebuttal properly).

NEW ARBITRATION PROGRAM Second, we have recently launched a new arbitration program that allows parties to dispute the accuracy of a report in an informal expedited process. Although the program does not include the removal of reports, it does include a written ruling from a neutral arbitrator (our first arbitration panel member is a retired Court of Appeals judge) who will decide whether anything in a report is untrue. When and if, such a finding has been determined, the report will then be modified to reflect the arbitrators decision in a clear and unequivocal way. If you are interested in this program and want more information, please send an email to Abtitration@RipoffReport.com and we will send you a packet, in an email which will contain more information, including a sample complaint form, as well as the rules for the program.

Third, you can always take your chances with a search engine optimization or SEO company. These fly-by-night Reputation Management companies promise to help you hide a complaint for the low, low price of $5,000 or more, but what they wont tell you is that in many cases, these fixes are only temporary and, worse yet, some SEO practices are prohibited by most search engines including Google. In fact, if you hire the wrong SEO company, the result may be a death sentence for your business you may be completely banned from many search engines so that no one can find your company! Some companies market themselves using dozens of different names because they end up blackmailing customers forcing them to continue to pay them, threatening they will make things worse.. Consumers will always find negative comments if they are out there, even if they have to search past page 3 or 20 on search engines, they will find it. Honestly, if you really dont care about your customers and simply want to hide complaints about you, then SEO may be right for you, but why not step up to the plate and confront the problem head-on? Thats what customers want to see, and thats what Ripoff Report is here to help businesses do! Remember, filing a rebuttal is completely FREE.. ALL COMPANIES WILL GET COMPLAINTS HOW THOSE COMPANIES TAKE CARE OF THOSE COMPLAINTS IS WHAT SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM BAD BUSINESSES

Dalbey Education Institute ,America's Note Netowrk DO NOT WORK FOR THESE GUYS - THEY WILL SCAM YOU LIKE THEY DO THEIR CUSTOMERS Westminster, Denver Colorado

MY experiences at the Dalbey: These guys are taking almost $3 MILLION / WEEK from people who are already in bad shape financially. These people are dropping anywhere from $2,000 to $30,000 for pie in the sky promises of making money with their home based business. The success stories are far and few between. Once in a great while joe blow from nowhere, USA makes $3500 with his not business.

They got too greedy and it is no wonder the IRS and various state attorney generals are investigating them. They were in there pulling scripts in December. The success stories in the new infomercial are the same as they were 10 years ago.

They promise both their salespeople and there customers everything in the world. "Some 24 year old made 700K last year" IT'S A SCAM I assure you. I worked there for almost a year and the only money being made is by Russ Dalbey. The salespeople make, "12% of half," that's 6% where I come from. There are a few (like 6-10) people making significant money, however, out of a training class of 30 only 2 remain after 60 days.

For the first 6 months you WILL WORK 75 HOURS / WEEK for AT MAX $3,500 / month. The hours back down to 65 after that. The leads are sometimes 120 days old and have been pounded on by 2-3 individuals before you. That's less than minimum wage and surely illegal to do as a W-2 employee.

Oh, I almost forgot, the managers(slave drivers) there are rediculous. Most of them have never even done what they are preaching to you about. There are clueless as to what is really happening on the salefloor. Mr. Jeff Rgasdale, the main manager is the worse. The guy simply refuses to deal with anything. Forget it if you are a top producer. They will fire you before xmas a screw you out of bonus. There is no honor and no loyalty among thieves.

In conclusion, these guys want the talent but do not want to pay for it. This article is not exaggerated in the slightest. HAVE A LIFE. To hell with working 75 hours/week making 300+ dials per day for less than minimum wage. And to the poor customers I am extremely sorry for what I have done working there. By the time I found out it was too late. GET RICH QUICK DOES NOT EXIST. Save your money and tell these jerks to remove you from their list. I promise you that if you do go forward you are throwing your money into a black hole. You will regret it.

I have no first hand knowledge of Russ Dalbey or his business affairs. I received SPAM referencing how single moms are earning 120k per year. I'm always looking for opportunities to increase my income level, though I ALWAYS come here, to Rip-Off Report dot com first. Seems there are many disgruntled customers/employees.

Amazing How Bitter A Fired Employee Can Be

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

At the DEI we do not tolerate poor performance. Especially amongst sales people. We hold to the highest ethical standards and we occasionally have to fire someone for breaking those standards. This person obviously has some serious issues with being fired. For a start, if he interpreted our training the way he evidently did, it was due to his own desire to extract money from the customer - which we ABSOLUTELY teach our sales people not to do.



We provide educational services and of course we contact our customers to inform them of coaching and workshop sessions. It is a complete lie to suggest that we 'harass' them.



As for the drugs and so on - it seems this person has an intimate knowledge of something that no other salesperson on the floor is involved in! It may actually be that this former employee was fired for having drugs or alcohol in his system at work. WE ARE UTTERLY COMMITTED TO A DRUG FREE WORKPLACE and this bitter ex-employee may have fallen foul of this policy.



I am always stunned by the reckless lies that an ex-employee can conjure up to try and wreck someone's legitimate business, and it disgusts me that this person is trying to affect or destroy the livelihoods of much better people than he or she.



All in all, this report was a pack of lies. I know because I work here, and I have NEVER seen any salesperson take advantage of a customer, and NEVER seen any of the ludicrous activities he or she claims are going on. Judge for yourself - come visit our workplace and you'll see how professional and ethical we are.

#9 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Dalbey Scams

AUTHOR: Ex-dalbey - (U.S.A.)

I used to work at Dalbey, too. There is no doubt that Dalbey sales reps are well trained. They literally have their sales pitch down to a predictable science. They know how many rings, how many minutes, and how many ways to use your own psychology on you to get you to buy their product. They are very good at what they do.



What is wrong with the whole deal is that their products are nothing but modern day snake's oil. What "Former Employee" said about ripping people off is very true. Dalbey is king of the upgrade sale. What they do is sell you very elementary course materials when you order from the infomercial. You can't do much with this material they send you. They know that you can't do anything with this material, so they pump your name and contact information into a database for you to literally be terrorized by morning, noon, and night by their very well trained sales reps. They will be relentless in calling you until you pick up. (I was trained to call your numbers 5-7 times a day.)



At that point, they will sell you on upgraded packages by all but telling you that if you spend $2000 you will make $60K + - or that if you spend $4000 you will make a six figure income - or that if you will give them $10,000 you will make a DEEP 6-figure income. The real truth is that all of their buyins give you the same old thing. They dress it up to make you feel like you have more opportunities to make $$, but look at the complaints. They far outweigh the successes. Besides that, it's just very irresponsible to make claims like that because people interpret them as promises to make money for an investment.



The reality is that most of the people who buy Dalbey's stuff are people who have no business going into business because they don't have any understanding of what it really takes to be a success. They just don't understand that just because you buy books or marketing or whatever else that you still have to work...and REALLY WORK to make a buck. The reality is that Dalbey is ripping off these people who will take what a good salesperson says at face value because they're desparate enough to be successful that they are easily tricked.



I remember being shown some of the "recent" success stories of Dalbey...it was interesting that they were all very old and dated. I wondered why there were so few recent successes on record. Could it be that the note business, as it's being taught by Dalbey has changed so much since all of the new privacy laws of the recent years have all come available? Could it be that Dalbey is selling the same old junk that they were selling pre-911? Hmmm...



The only real semblance of a product that Dalbey even has is an internet marketing product they call Master Marketing. They'll sell it to you for $4500...but if you haggle enough they'll drop their pants and sell it to you for around $1500. Their whole goal is to get as much of your money on each call as possible. They will even tell you that if you do as much as get hired there.



The goal for this sales floor, though it's not shared with you until you figure it out for yourself (or you get invited into Russ Dalbey's Millionaire's Club) is to find and list notes on Dalbey's website for he and his investors to buy. Russ Dalbey is the primary investor on the other end of all of this...so what he does is sell you enough information to intrigue you, upsell you into Dalbey's Winners Circle to get you purchasing leads & marketing from his company at grossly marked up prices, get you doing the grunt work of finding people who are in such dire straits that they are willing to part with their equity by selling their notes for fractions of their worth (or spending even MORE money to supposedly have these types of people being driven to you on the internet or by mail drops), so that you can list another goldmine on Dalbey's website- America's Note Network, for Dalbey and his co-hordes to buy.



Something that anyone interested in purchasing Dalbey products should know - The "Winner's Circle" is supposedly the group of people that Russ Dalbey wants to mentor and help become successful. But there's a running joke on the floor about how the only real Winner's Circle at Dalbey is to be one of Dalbey's employees - because that is the only way to make money with Dalbey. And the sad part is that less than a quarter of Dalbey's sales floor is even making decent money. True some of those guys are making $100K +, but most of the rest are living brokebrokebroke, chasing after the golden Dalbey carrot. It doesn't cost Dalbey anything to have those bodies in chairs cranking out 300 calls a day because they are only paid on commission. They don't even get an hourly after they get out of training.



So it's very well thought out. And Dalbey is very good at making money for himself. He's also good at teaching sales people to abandon their ethics in the name of making a good income while smiling at your face and saying the right words. They'll get you excited and hyped up on how it's such a great way to help other people and that you'll make at least $75K if you stick around a year or more. I don't feel it's worth it to sell junk goods to people who are so caught up in their whirlwind of life that they hop on the next bandwagon. I think that is predatory and ruthless.



It's not uncommon to have a sales floor full of drug addicts, sex addicts, and alcoholics, just look at any call center in the country. You'd be astonished on the Dalbey floor though! Just take a look at the cocaine use running all over the floor. Sales managers coked out of their gourds, high and drunk employees/managers, sex in bathrooms, and I'm sure much more than that.



Is it the best place to work in Colorado? Absolutely not. Not even close. Actually, Dalbey should be shut down permanently.

The Best Place To Work In Colorado

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

I have worked at the DEI for nine months, during which time I have been promoted twice and have increased my income to over six figures. The truth is, this IS a hard-work environment. For that kind of money, I think that's acceptable. I also happen to know that MOST of the people who have been here a year or more are earning more than $100k.



The problem that this person is describing is more a personal one than a company one. The company offers good training and is very supportive, although you do work long hours for your money. It is currently preparing an application for The Best Place To Work In Colorado - and considering the salaries, the very generous Xmas bonus, the full benefits and all the new things they are doing to prepare the application (better PTO, better healthcare, etc) I think they have a real chance.



It's easy to be bitter if you don't succeed personally, but you have to look at yourself and decide if you really suit a fast, high-demand career. If not, don't work here. If so, the rewards are excellent.
