The Lee Arnold System of Real Estate Investing educates their clients on how to invest in real estate, while simultaneously lending them money to invest in that real estate. Lee Arnold further explained the processes of his company, "we will take anyone, not matter the background, income, credit score, and teach them how to invest in real estate. [We] lend them the money they need to buy and sell real estate for a profit with the hopes that they generate enough income and eventually come back to become a lender through our company to the new people coming into the fold."

CEO, John Cain, explained how leads are obtained for The Lee Arnold System of Real Estate Investing, "In a number of ways we acquire leads through people who are interested in real estate investing. People who are interested in getting private money capital, referrals, attending conventions, Internet advertising, and print advertising." Once a potential customer has expressed interest in their services they will be contacted so The Lee Arnold System of Real Estate Investing can further understand their needs. Mr. Arnold expressed, "if their interested in borrowing money we respond to them and we ask them about the deal that they want to get funded on. If they are responding to interest in attending a live event, we sign them up. We do not cold call. We only call those who express interest in our products and services.
CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – THE LEE ARNOLD SYSTEM OF REAL ESTATE INVESTING
During the onsite interview, Mr. Arnold was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. Arnold expressed a complaint that was also placed on Ripoff Report's website. One of their clients purchased a phone coaching program which costs $12,500, he additionally purchased a business setup entity LLC formation package which costs $6,000. Mr. Arnold further explained, "he called in saying he was unhappy and not satisfied with the level of service he was receiving and requested a refund. We called back asking if he would like a refund or if he would rather us send someone out to his home to work with him for three days, which is a $25,000 one-on-one mentor ship which we sent to him at no cost. We did it because we wanted to make this customer happy. While our mentor was out there he identified several deals, and he ended up buying one of them with the money we lent him. He fixed it up, sold, it, made a $40,000 profit, and still complained that we did not do a good job...in the nature of our business, bad press costs us a lot more than the individual customer themselves...it's not just a loss of that customer on that particular sale, it's a loss of future loans, future opportunities, that borrower becoming a lender through us--we take customer complaints very seriously." This is not a common complaint for Secured Investment Corp, and they will do whatever they can to ensure customer satisfaction.
When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to make things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Arnold Stated, "but we certainly added fail safes to ensure that our clients had a better customer experience."
The Lee Arnold System of Real Estate Investing is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "to me it means the opportunity to actually be able to address customer complaints. My main interest in the efficacy program is it gives us the opportunity to handle, and help the customer without them just anonymously land basting us online for stuff we didn’t even know we did. So, it is a checkpoint to determine either the validity of the complaint, or give us the opportunity to resolve it before it has to be brought to the public’s attention. And we have very few of them, but the ones we do have we’d like the opportunity to fix whatever we did in the customer’s mind. So that’s, to me, what the efficacy program provides."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Lee Arnold I'm The Solution, Private Money Bank.com, PMB International Post falls, , Idaho
Through one of my real estate investor friends I heard about Lee Arnorld's webinar and listened to it one night and was convinced to purchase his program. To hear Mr. Arnold tell it, you get a website of your own all of the training you need and his system is as easy as falling off of a log, He will print up business cards for you and get you pre-approved craigslist ads and IF you send him a deal within 60 days you will get all of your $1,000 investment back. Sounded great and sure "sounded" easy. He didn't mention but once that there would be a monthly ongoing charge, just to be get access to all of his wisdom. I should have known something was funny when I was invited to another webinar with him and thought that I would get some training and inside secrets to making this work really fast....and ....was presented another program of his, with the same kind of lead finding program....for only $200.00 instead of $1,000.00!. What the @#$%????
Well, I started listening to his training sessions and they are all out of order and some of them are spliced together and jumbled up and didn't follow the book. It took about one week to get my internet site up so I could "rake-in" the money and another two weeks for my business cards to come in. By then I decided that I really didn't think that this was for me and asked for my money back and was politely told that I "only" had three days to get out of the program. Really? It took more than three days to figure out what I had coming and anything about his program.
I decided that I would go all out and advertise the heck out of this program and and try to get my money back! Well, needless to say after 100 days, setting up a website of my own to drive traffic to his squeeze page, hours and hours of posting ads, countless emails coming from him trying to sell me more programs, other peoples' programs, and up-sell me to more and better programs, and of coursed the monthly charge just to be a member and have access to all of his great money making wisdom and recordings I called and quit. I was told that I was a susspended anyway and all of my leads that I gave him are now his and I don't have anyway to get my money back and/or when and if he makes money on the leads that I gave him.....for life, the answer will be "tough cookie" you are not paying your monthly "dues."
Stay away unless you have all the time in the world, money to burn and want to go back to "college"......and just about pay him the regular college tuition. I sure would like to get some of my money back and would even take a discount because he did spend "a little money" on me....but Not $1,000.......maybe $100. I just hope that when the next billing cycle comes around I don't get charged for my monthly "dues" again...we'll see!
