If you have been swindled in a Russ Whitney scam you will need to respond. I still can't believe we paid $199 to attend a sale pitch. I intend to initiate a class action law suit for everyone who has ever been suckered into a Russ Whitney swindle. We are Realtors with over 25 years experience and the wherewithal to follow through. When I attended the event, in Portland, OR, on Sept 8th, it was advertised as ?Foreclosure Training?. It said ?there is no better training for today's changing market?. We would receive Continuing Education Credits. The speaker said we could learn ?the proper way to approach this lucrative market?. He said there is a 3 day course in ?well-tested methods that focused on high integrity'. We could ?learn all we needed in one convenient program?. We had no way of knowing we had just signed up for a Russ Whitney sales pitch for $199. Russ will be impressed with the importance of full Disclosure and fair dealing with the Real Estate Community here in the Northwest. Realtors need to accumulate 30 hours of continuing education (CE) before they can renew their licenses. This will be a state wide and then a federal issue involving the Securities and Exchange Commission. The speaker (9/8/06) said there was going to be a certificate of completion at the end of the training program, at the Sheraton Hotel. I verified this with one of the staff on Sept 8th at the Embassy Hotel. I needed a credit for Continuing Ed. I never heard of the Wealth Integrity Academy until after my Notice of Cancellation had expired. At that Sept 8th event, I paid $199 for 3 days training in foreclosures, pre-foreclosure financing, assumptions and short sales techniques and strategies. I kept all the promotional advertising leading up to the so called "3 Day Training Event". The Whitney Education Group and the Focus on Foreclosure company is in deep dodo. The event at the Sheraton Hotel was not intended to be training. We were expecting formal education in the subject we paid for. I still have the itinerary dam It! We did not intend to go to an event for the Wealth Intelligence Academy. We couldn't discover this until we were in the Sept 29th event, and after our chance to use the "Notice of Cancellation" had expired. The event turned out to be a 3 day rally for the Wealth Intelligence Academy. I still can't believe we paid $199 to attend a sale pitch. They have been evasive, hopping I will go away. But, I intend to initiate a class action law suit for everyone who was ever suckered into a Russ Whitney swindle. I will come back later to explain the amount of deception that these guy are perpetrating on the public. Get involved.
