The Coaching Department Austin Bowden, Gary Buckway, James Ryan The Coaching Department along with other entities Daeus Financial, Seed Capital, Supplier Source has ripped people off with a Work from Home Business Scam Orem Utah
I had responded to a work from home opportunity to setup an ecommerce website on 4/30/13 which the cost was $97. Then I was sent a link to their website. Immediately following that, I was contacted by someone from The Coaching Department who convinced me that owning an online website would be very lucrative. I was looking for a way to make some extra money so got scheduled to talk over the phone with someone else. The person I talked with was Austin Bowden and during this call he pressed very hard to sell me a coaching program and said that I would be able to recoup costs in a relatively short period of time. He mentioned three levels with each level you were suppose to get more services. So I went with the 8695 level which included marketing and so I put it on my credit card. He had a big speech on using other people's money because in a relatively short period of time I would be making lots of money to pay this back. They made it sound like if you didn't sign up at this time someone else would get the great deal. I got 10 weeks of coaching, accounting mentor package (not sure what that is), web builder, drop shippers, ebay research software, marketing package. There was also a guarantee on this contract I signed after completing all of your coaching sessions, if the products and services did not meet or exceed your expectations we will work with you proactively at our own expense until you are completely satisfied. After looking at the contract it never mentioned the coaching department by name.
I did get a website out of this working with Mentor Gary Buckway but have made only $150.00 with a total of $26635 invested with all of the options. The things he taught me I could of easily just picked up from the online training website had we have access to it was nothing special. Oh yes. then came the 12,500 price tag thru Supplier Source for getting the website up and functioning they would do allot of the work for you says representative James Ryan and Gary encouraged me to really look at this option. I almost took the bait but did not have the funds so I went with negotiated rate of 2500.00. What a bargain. Wasn’t' that suppose to be part of the coaching cost I asked of course not. So by then you were sucked into their scheme.
Then the endless barrage of phone calls from different people and they seemed so secretive to who they were. So then I worked with Nicholas Welch at Daeus Financial, Kari Aragon at Seed Capital for finance and Martin Pettit at Strategic Tax Service to setup an LLC and establish credit and tax service for a total of 17940. They said it could take years to establish credit which they could accomplish in around 6 months. After thinking about all of this you get a couple of credit cards to use for your business and then you are in business. I have since tried to get a hold of Martin Pettit but he does not return phone calls or emails.
