Bernard Haldene Watch out Edmonton RIP OFF Thanks Rip off report
I have been to two Haldane interviews here in good old Edmonton.
I must say that I am an intelligent individual simply looking for a change after 10 years at the same location.
I saw the add in the Edmonton Journal and thought "what have I got to lose".
I emailed them my resume and promptly received a call for an appointment with Senior Consultant Aurther Heathcoat.
It is errie to read the testimonials of good people who, like myself, interviewed with Haldane.
It sounds like the "Advisors" are all reading from the same script.
That is the one thing that really disturbs me, the complete lack of sincerity of these people.
I must confess that Mr Heathcoat made me feel like a million bucks after my first interview.
I was walking on air as they say. I have often wondered how people get sucked into joining strange religious cults but there are people who have the ability to convince you of anything.
Who does not want to be told how wonderful they are and with a little professional career guidance, hell, the sky is the limit...guaraunteed!!
At the end of the second interview Aurther offered me the huge discounted deal of $4700 for a "life time" relationship with the Haldan support group.
I might have even bit but the fee was to be paid on the spot with my Visa. Huh?
That is like paying a real estate salesman his commission before he even starts looking for a house. Where is the incentive beyond that point?
My wife was not with me so I phoned her at home while Aurther waited outside the door. "open the door when you are finished" he told me.
My wife was secretly suspicious of Haldane from the start and now she let me know it in spades.
Needless to say, I left without signing anything, but still believing very strongly in Mr Heathcoat. He phoned me at work the next day still pitching, trying to get me to bring my wife down to his office.
Today I read all of these testimonoals about Haldane and had to add mine.
I must say that these salesmen are real experts. They have talked intelligent professional people into handing over thousands of dollars after maybe 3 hours of knowing each other.
I confess, I was completely sold on Haldane right up to the moment I found this website.
Then reality slapped me hard in the face. Thanks for your advice everyone, it made a difference for me. : )
