I would be interested in hearing from all individuals who feel that they have been made victims of or are being scammed by Premier Mentoring and Bob Diamond. They have stolen $21,820.00 from me through the sale of a real estate mentoring course. In which two of their pitchmen Brandon Godfrey and Mark Webster promised me untold riches by following the methods of the course with Bob Diamond, a real estate attorney in Philadelphia, PA, leading the way. I was fooled into believing that due to Bob Diamond's credentials as a successful real estate investor, as well as, an attorney, that it would be impossible for me to fail nor would I be allowed to.
I was guaranteed by Brandon Godfrey that they would show me how to make enough money so quickly, that I could pay off the $21,820.00 charge, placed on my credit card for the purchase of the course, by the time the first payment came due. After interviewing me for my participation in the course the Premier Mentoring staff member Brandon Godfrey told me that if I did not make a decision to purchase the course at that moment that I would never be offered the opportunity to do so again. He said that I would not be the kind of person that they would want to work with in the future. Their pitchman Brandon Godfrey also used high pressure sales tactics on me such as saying, that by me not making a decision to purchase the course, that I was someone not willing to make a better future for myself and my family. By doing so, Premier Mentoring preyed on my ability to charge the $21,820.00 on two separate credit cards and then continued to lie to me just long enough for me to pass the window of opportunity to cancel the transaction for a refund. The CEO Jeff Spangler should be ashamed of himself for allowing such sales tactics to be used in his organization. He evidently does not have a handle on the specifics of how things are done within his own company. It just goes to show you that you can be successful in today's world even if you do not have the ability to make your sales staff behave in a manor with honesty and integrity as its first priority.
The so-called mentoring staff that they promised would be available to help me along the way has never been any help and does not have a clue to what the real estate market is like in my area. There has been hardly anyone available to talk to when I tried to do so. Which left me in a position to always chase them down and meet their schedule. They even complained that I was sending to many properties for them to review. Yet, I was told by Mark Webster to use and abuse them for the purpose of being successful. I was also instructed by Mark Webster to tell the real estate agents I was beginning to work with that my funding was no problem. I understood later that this was a lie just to make the agents believe I had plenty of money to work with. I was led to believe that Premier Mentoring and Bob Diamond had the lenders and investors just waiting to do business with me. It was not until about six weeks into the course that I was told the opposite and that I had to get my own funding. In the beginning, before I purchased the course I made it clear that I had no way of funding the purchases due to my debt to income ratio.
The online course that was made available and claimed by their mentoring agreement to be a "unique learning experience" was nothing more than full of information you could learn for free, certainly not worth the $21,820.00 price tag. One of the principles taught in this arena is using OPM (Other People's Money) and not your own for funding the real estate purchases. It is my belief, that my $21,820.00 was used to fund part of their own real estate ventures. I guess by stealing an unsupecting individuals resources, such as how mine were stolen, is one way of putting that principle into practice.
I was also led to believe that Premier Mentoring was owned by Bob Diamond, when in reality it is a front company for many of the so-called real estate and wealth building gurus such as Armando Montelongo, Charrissa Cawley, A. D. Kessler, Loral Langemeir and others as well. The Better Business Buireau of Utah can confirm this. I am in the process of disputing the $21,820.00 charge on my credit cards. Premier Mentoring is fighting the dispute. Let me hear from you if you have a greivance with these scam artists. You are not alone! There is strength in numbers!
