I've lost money $5500 I paid for a product at the "Unseminar6"  (Pat O'Bryan's seminar in San Antonio, TX) -- Eric Farewell was a sanctioned presenter/speaker and I bought his product, he was pitching: coaching and a sales website that would show a return on money for me.

I made a VISA card purchase to Eric Farewell -- price of $5500 for his "Unseminar 6" product of a "Money website". It never happened; Eric never delivered anything useful or valuable!

I have not received the product I purchased from Eric Farewell- a website that would make money, or was making money. I have no idea what's going on in Eric Farewell mind to rationalize this behavior. He scammed me out of $5500 plus expenses!  He did allow me access to two training sites he already had up, but no live conference calls or coaching ever scheduled. I tried to get Pat O'bryan host to the seminars to back ME up; he did not back me and he even invited Eric back to do another seminar after he knew that Eric had scammed me and another woman.

It has been frustrating for me: Waiting and waiting for something to happen from Eric to help me achieve some of the success he had bragged about as a seminar presenter and bragged about his massive success he achieved on the Internet. I guess I bought into my dream but with Eric Farewell as scam artist...  I requested  that my VISA Card purchase price of $5500 be returned to me ASAP. He did not return my money!

By Eric not delivering the $5500 package I bought -- it has made me really frustrated. Time is money! And that is a lot of money for my husband and me. We are both older seniors (70's and 80's) still working 7 days a week for our money to liver on. I know that by having a site like Eric described would make a huge difference in our financial lives. Instead we lost $5500 plus $750 expenses in going to Pat's seminar.

Hopeful I will get my money back.

I Want my money back from Eric Farewell

AUTHOR: Hopefull - ()

I did not receive a product for my money. I am a senior woman trying to get an Internet business going.  ***Eric Farewell let me use a website (a Wii game site) and I tried to make it work, (I spent time and $$'s to get it some traffic) but it was not Google compliant. He never did transfer that site into my name, but I really don't want a website that Google says isn't compliant in its name.  ***I want my money back from Eric Farewell, because I never did receive anything useful to make money on the Internet as promised in his presentation in the seminar.*** I don't think there is a status of time liminataion on non delivery of useable product... It smells like fraud! It took me almost a year to find out that he wasn't serious about helping me and the year had passed. I have a witness -- a techie guy I met at that same seminar.

Setting The Record Straight.

AUTHOR: Eric Farewell - ()

Hello there,

Several years ago, your purchased a product from me at Unseminar 6. A product that included both a training, and a website ready built and ready to recieve traffic. After the seminar we met several times to discuss which website you'd be most interested in owning and you opted for the exact website which was presented at Unseminar 6 during my speech.

I won't list the domain directly here, but it was a website related to the Nintendo Wii. Months passed and though the website was fully operational you did not use the training which you were given and the website did not grow in sales as you were not directing traffic to it.

You reached out to me once again and I spent over an hour on the phone with you walking you through your options on how to leverage the training you purchased to gain traction in the market and get more traffic. You appeared to do nothing.

More time passed and you reached out once again, bashing me and stating that you'd "ruin my online reputation". I spent more time on the phone with you, and purely out of kindness and going the extra mile, offered to edit a sales letter for ANOTHER one of your websites (normally a $3,000 fee). You were overjoyed with that prospect and the edit was made.

Since then I have no record of hearing from you for nearly 2 years before this was posted. My team and I worked hard to not just deliver what was promised, but to over deliver in an exceptional manner. Your slander here on this website is hereby requested to be removed immediately or you will be hearing from my representation.

I have all of our written communication (even though much of it is FOUR years old). In it you mention multiple times that you're going through the trainings that were delivered... Thus, your product has been delivered & OVER delivered. What you do with it is up to you.


Defaming me, and my family business (which is completely unrelated to my marketing business) is unconscionable.

In addition to all of this, Pat O' Bryan has a 90 day return policy on all products sold at his seminar. As was stated clearly on the receipt which you signed at Unseminar 6... Over 4 years ago.
