I met this man and we began a relationship and within a couple of weeks he had me conviinced he lost his wallet and I allowed him to write checks to my account until he could get his Id, Credit Cards and so on replaced from out of state. Told me he had a big settlement coming in from a disability claim and money from his 401K just was waiting for the checks to come in. Come to find out the checks he wrote bounced and were from a closed account "Sales Success International". In the recent weeks I have found out that this is his MO to take advantage of woman. He is a very manipulative man who will take advantage of anyone who crosses his path. If anyone is looking for him I have addresses and phone numbers of his last known address in Arkansas where he resides with his father and the number to his current wife. We need to find this man and get him off the streets. He creates devastation where ever he goes.

You are full of crap. This guy is scamming people right and left. I know because I was a victim of his non-sense. Fortunately our credit card company saw right through him and refunded our money. You either have no clue what you're talking about or you have been brainwashed by this d****ebag.

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Company has shut the doors. And out of business.

AUTHOR: Aka alias - (United States of America)

If they truth be told...the pastor you refer to is a convicted drug dealer that conned and blackmailed sean back into the seminar business after he was committed to a mental hospital. He almost forced him to be his and blackmailed him to try and speak again. To no avail, and caused another memtal breakdown that he has not and probably will not ever recover from. He in fact tried to overdose in puerto rico. He is severly bi polar and off medication. He is not wanted by FBI, as he has had run ins with law enforcmemt and no such warrants exist. I have also contacted them and confirmed there are no pending matters. As for his ex, she also blackmailed him and conned him to be a money producer for jer, when he refised and quit speaking on stage, there was a domestic violence with a deadly weapon arrest made against thr ex gorlfriend in ceiba pierto rico. Where she pulled a knife on him. She was arrested. Immediately after that he had left and moved to vieques puerto rico,with another mental breakdown. Be advised, he is unedicated for mental illness. He is declared mentaly imcompetent and has a list of mental illness, bi ploar 1 with pyscptoc episodes. Clinical depression,anxiety disorder, and boderline personality disorder. I know him somewhat weell, and i can assire you he will never recover from these severe illnesses. He is a very lost,dazed, and confused mentally ill person. You should try to help him and get him treatment. He has attempted suiced in the last yeat in nevada, puerto rico 2 times, and in mossissippi where he was committed to a mental hospital. He needs serious help. I do have recent knowledge as of mid june he was in a homeless shelter in old san juan puerto rico amd is trying to fond help and medicine to battle a mental hell he lives everyday. It he doesnt geteds his days will be numbered as he will try suocide again and eventually suceed. On another take, everyone should know prior to 2009, before his mental disease got worse and out of control, he was a great speaker, business man, an ex vice president of a fortune 500 company, and very respected as a super natural salesperson. He also changed hundreds if not thousands of lives for great success.
it is a shame that people dont understand what untreated mental illness can do to a person, and that lack of help that exists in helping the hurting. It was only after sean saw dr. Paul young in baytpwn texas, and was prescibed a cocktail of physcotic drugs for his diseases that he really went off the deep end. That was in late 2008, and a man that made(not stole) high six figures and maybe seven figures, endied up with 4suicede attempts, 1 coma, and 2 commitments to a mental hopital.
get all the facts straight and do just spread gossip and hearsay. The majority of commenys posted are from personal people in his life he barely new and have not even a clue who amd what he was before hos brain has been so dramatically effected by disease and physcotic medicines.
god bless him, dont d**n a once great person. We all live in glass houses, beware of stones being thrown at yours..

Charles/Sean Downing on the RUN!!!

AUTHOR: Alias - (USA)

I had the displeasure of meeting Charles/Sean Downing (Same Person) in Puerto Rico. I was on an extended vacation living on the island of Vieques and the main island of the Puerto Rico. I met Sean and his girlfriend and was renting from them. Within the first week of living there I had found out that he has ripped off many people across the United States. He stole almost 100K from a pastor, $$ from realtors in Las Vegas, Texas, Arizona and who knows where else. This guy currently has the FBI looking for him as well of multiple states. I spoke to the Detective in Las Vegas as well a couple of realtors across the country letting them know where he was staying. This guy is so bad that his girlfriend who is a disabled vet was ripped off for almost 70K. The girlfriend and him broke up and he was living on Vieques, PR. He only lasted about a week on the island because he tried to pickup older women of means. The island is small & everyone looks out for each other and it did not take long before he had a sign on his back. He was last seen taking the last ferry on a Sunday to the main island. I know he is low on cash because he was selling everything he could of his stuff as well as his ex-girlfriends things that he had stolen. I assisted her in going to police in Puerto Rico but he had left before they could arrest him. I do know he checks the website because the employee responses you have seen are by him!!! I will post to the other reports on this website so others will know the latest. Charles/Sean I can not wait to read your arrest on the web!!!!

#5 REBUTTAL Individual responds

He does pay $2,600 in child support

AUTHOR: past employee - (Virgin Islands (US))

The information about the abandoning the the child is totally false, his ex wife ran off after the economy cleaned out their money. instead of standing by her man while he rebuilds she left. As far as the kids are concerned he PAYS $2,600 in child support every month, but is still not allowed to see the children. again, anyone can post anything about anyone on this site without having to prove any claims. Be forewarned that this site will allow anyone to post anything, true or false, at anytime and will not remove any complaints for any reason even if proven false. read their FAQ,and your will see this is a great source to try and ruin someones name, slander them, or create defamation of character.

#6 UPDATE Employee

Woman scorned ex girlfriend -false information

AUTHOR: past employee - (Virgin Islands (US))

This post is from a woman scorned from a break up. The woman is a alcolohic with 3 convictions for DUI. The story is compelty fabricated to try and hurt the reputation of a very powerful public speaker. It is a shame that anyone can post anything on ripoff report without having to prove any facts and backup any stories. Sean Downing does not create devastation, he is one of the most giving and generous employers i have ever known. All he cares about is helping other people achieve more, be more , and do more including hiself.

Please do

AUTHOR: Christine - (United States of America)

This man does need to be off the streets immediately and I do hope that you have a way of warning the individual your are speaking about that he has his sights on now. If there was a way to contact you I would and we could work together to get this man in Jail. I am in the process of picking up the pieces he left and trying to save the place where I live and just find a way to pay my bills at this point. If you want to contact me I Live in Prescott, AZ (((Redacted)))

Further Information on Sean Downing of Sales Success Intl

AUTHOR: Tina - (United States of America)

I am Sean Downing of Sales Success Intl's third or fourth ex-wife (depending on how you look at it).  He was married to me as well as a woman in New York at the same time and plead guilty in Texas (where we were divorced) to bigamy charges.  I have know this man since the mid 90's and this is his MO.  He has a history of ripping people off and leaving a path of destruction including at least 3 abandoned children (2 of them mine).  I do not know what can be done, but someone must stop him.  He won't quit.  Why would he?  He is getting away with it.  I believe he has found a woman here in town that I live in as his next vicitm.  I believe it is time to worn her.
