Consumers need to be aware that John T. Reed is the seller of Real Estate investment books and his sole way of selling these books is through his web site. He will not take phone, fax or mail order and will not issue refunds or allow returns.
His site is almost entirely dedicated to putting other companies and individuals down who sell Real Estate books. He is known as a Consumer Advocate because of the way his web site is set up but the truth is that his site is designed to sell his own product.
He is being sued for libel among other things for his practices on his web site of posting untrue and unverified claims of other gurus in addition to using these other gurus names in a way to divert web traffic from their sites when consumers are doing searches.
In the latest suit against him, he has responded by launching a personal attack on the plaintiff on his web site and posts many untruths that can be checked out at http://www.whitney-facts-vs-johntreed.com/.
It is easy to read Reeds page and believe he is trying to help people when you search on a particular Real Estate investment course but what one needs to do is read his entire site to find he put downs almost all of them and actually calls many fraud and rip off artists while then trying to get you to buy his real estate courses.
By reading his entire site, you will find many contradictions (lies) and find out that he has no very first hand knowledge of these other RE investors. In fact, he states that he gets emails from people who make money off these other course but refuses to publish them because he says these people are stupid and only think they make money.
John Reed has gone on to investigate family members of his competition including 74-year-old women and visiting the grave of a guru's father. This is all one his web site including how he states that a guru probably deserved the abuse he received as a child that included being burned with an open flame and says such practices were acceptable in the 60s.
I urge you all to read his site completely to see what a sick individuals this man is and what extremes he will go to including lying, stating opinion as fact and telling half the story in order to slant your views to think he is a consumer advocate rather than a Real Estate Investment Book seller.
Consumer should be concerned and check out Real Estate Guru's before buying their products but being tricked into thinking you are reading unbiased information is not right nor is it not right to pretend to be a consumer advocate when the only people you are reporting about is your competition.
There are too numerous lies and false information on the John Reed site to post here but he makes statements even regarding the law that are wrong including where he says one can only file for bankruptcy if they have a negative worth and that a company is insolvent if they are in the red. He uses this to say his competition is insolvent or to say that somebody is cheating if they legally file bankruptcy protection. He continues to say one of his competitions was arrested for a hit and run accident when he knows this person was never arrested and never brought to trial. By reading his site you can see all these and many many more contradictions and lies.
This is a not a man you want to do business with in my opinion but if you choose to, please read his entire site to see how his statements change completely regarding issues depending on what information he is trying to sell you.
You should also realize that his books are printed from his computer and then he comb binds them together (like a shcool report) and ships them out via US Post office only and refuses to give you a delivery date. He also states on his site that the US Post office is unreliable but says this is the only way he ships and don't bother calling him to ask when you will get your product.
