BEWARE: Glenn Bembenek and his countless website names are an absolute fraud in every sense of the term.  He sets up countless websites claiming he will "Coach You" and build "Excellence" in your life. His method for conducting this fraudulent activity is accomplished by re-purposing the same crap under a different website name such as "Premier Performers", "Advisors Excel", Bembenek & CO which the business license has been revoked. His latest creation as of this date is Equipped For Excellence and as soon as he takes a few victims for $700-$1500 or more, he moves on under a different website address. [continued below]....

The one thing in common that he and his team of 1 share is a mailing address which points to 3605 Sandy Plains Road, Suite 240-480, Marietta, Georgia 30066, which coincidentally is a UPS Shipping retail store. 

Glenn also uses addresses in Wisconsin and Kansas among other locations.  In fact, Mr. Bembenek has an outstanding judgement against him in Wisconsin if you'd like to read the details here.  How this guy is not sitting in jail for wire fraud or interstate commerce violations is beyond me.

All of his websites offer a money back guarantee that can range from 30 days to a year.  Don't count on getting your money back, it does NOT happen, as in my case after months of dealing with this thief.  As I stated before, Glenn is a Fraud in every sense of the term and my advise to you is to not walk away but RUN. Whatever you do, don't give him your credit card information under ANY circumstance.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Simply Rediculous and Slanderous!

AUTHOR: Glenn Bembenek - (United States of America)

First, this website is nothing but an extortionist tool.  They want the slandered to submit a $2,000 fee to arbitrate, yet requires that the burden of proof rests on the slandered.  Are you kidding?  How does one prove that baseless assertions are false?  In America, doesnt the burden of proof rest on the slanderer. 

Per this website: The person who requests arbitration always has the burden of proof which means that if you claim something in a report about you or your business is false, YOU must offer evidence that proves this. If you fail to provide evidence to support your position, it is very likely that the Arbitrator will find that you have failed to meet your burden of proof. This is true even if the author does not respond.

Anyone can slander someone on the internet without identifying himself/herself, ones motive, or any basis in fact.  For good and evil, The Consumer Decency Act protects ill-intentioned, malicious individuals just as it does well-intentioned, benevolent individuals. 

The fact is, that whomever submitted this report, you have never been a client of mine.  Your "facts" and assertions are utterly baseless and without merit.  Unfortunately, it's impossible for me to prove your untruths - anyone can call anyone a "fraud" or any other malicious term.  I could ask my hundreds of satisfied coaching clients or the thousands that have attended my seminars to refute your ridiculous assertions; Instead, I can only encourage someone to read some of the real  testimonials posted on my website.

In America, there was a time when someone had to identify themselves, the basis of their assertions, and corresponding evidence.  Today, cowards can hide behind aliases in an effort defame, slander, and/or libel someone with malicious intent.  Yes, you can attempt to attack my character, my values, my history in serving clients, and my commitment to deliver excellence - but, I
sleep well knowing that commitment to serve has been (for more than a decade), and will continue to be, at a level of excellence regardless of your attempts to state otherwise.

A few questions for you:

-Are you attempting to extort money?

-Are you bored and miserable and wanting to bring your misery to others?

-Finally, I bet you voted for Obama, didn't you?  Only a such a mind could be so confused and bent on causing harm.

One final note: If you have any issue, business or personal, please don't hesitate to contact me.  If not, continue to be a coward hide in the anonymity of the internet attack artists.  God speed!

Not quite the whole story

AUTHOR: TopSalesChick - (United States of America)

I too have been a client of Premier Performers before it was called Equipped for Excellence and I live in the St. Louis area. I am so grateful I found this report when searching for this company because there is no other impartial forum to express my feedback or even a way to voice my experience.  I must attest that while I received a portion of my money back, it took a good while. Soon after I started as a client, Glenn was quite nice but I was really turned off by Mr. Bembeneks accusatory and almost threatening dialect like I was to "Obey" him or he would "drop ME as a client and I would be "forfeiting" my money". He comes across as some type of "guru of excellence" in mind control.  The service he claims to provide IS a scam that you will come to discover soon AFTER you provide your credit card number.

   His lengthy rebuttal as "the victim" above illustrates how out of touch with reality he really is.  Anyone can manufacture testimonials on their own website as Mr. Bemebenek clearly has.  Try and find impartial 3rd party reviews anywhere else. You won't find them.   I mapquested the address the original complainant listed and sure enough it is a UPS Shipping store and not some type of office suite.  Like I said, I did get a portion of my money back so I'm not extraordinarily upset but you do need to be aware of this weirdo before you provide your credit card info to him or anybody representing this company.

Erroneous Report

AUTHOR: Glenn Bembenek - (United States of America)

The author of the original report asserts that Glenn Bembenek engaged in a fraudulent activity.  The fact is that Glenn Bembenek has never received funds without delivering high quality service as agreed upon between client and Mr. Bembenek.  Furthermore, Mr. Bembenek has never had a client named "Jen" (the purported author of the original report).  Furthermore, Mr. Bembenek has NEVER had a client where, when requested, he did not promptly return funds.  Never! 

Given the misrepresentations and falsities within the original report, it is clear that the author of the original report has only one real motivation - to maliciously attack and defame. 

Glenn Bembenek has been in the business of delivering seminars and providing individual coaching/consulting services for more than 12 years.  As many businesses do, in an effort to market to a different segment of the population, he has utilized three different website names all directing to the same website

The original report identified Mr. Bembenek's original website name (Premier Performers), a former client (Advisor's Excel), and a corporation set up in Georgia (Bembenek & Co.) that was never utilized in any business venture. 

Mr. Bembenek has never had a business license revoked.

The "latest creation" is certainly Equipped for Excellence - such website is still directed to - and was secured as a name to attract the type of clientele that fit his services best.  The original report also asserts that "his latest creation as of this date is Equipped For Excellence and as soon as he takes a few victims for $700-$1500 or more, he moves on under a different website address."  Mr. Bembenek invites the author to bring to his attention even one victim.  For those that view his website, they will see a litany (a sample of thousands of clients served) of satisfied clients.  But, if there is even one, Mr. Bembenek requests that such person contact him at the following address:

3605 Sandy Plains Road, Suite 240-480, Marietta, Georgia 30066

He will immediately respond to any requests, and where requested, be happy to offer any refund.  There is a reason why he has such a liberal guarantee - he is committed to delivering outstanding and excellent service.  Without exception.  The business of delivering seminars and coaching is very much a function of reputation - Glenn Bembenek would never and has never engaged in any practice in any form that the author of the original report asserts.

Mr. Bembenek has never had an address in Wisconsin or Kansas.  Furthermore, does not have, nor has he ever had an outstanding judgment in Wisconsin. 

Final note: the original report came to the attention of Mr. Bembenek almost six months after it was originally published.  He was never notified from; furthermore, whomever the author of the original report may be has also never notified Mr. Bembenek.  Mr. Bembenek is left to conclude that the author of this report (he does not know the identity of the author) has never actually been served by him; furthermore, the author never requested any refund. 

How can a website get away with making false, libelous accusations without any attempt at verification or justification of facts or truth?  This website asserts that it will not remove original posts under any circumstances - regardless of lack of substantiation of assertions, evaluation of contracts, or character of original author.
