I attended a Tax Lien Certificate program from the Trump Institute. Donald Trump described the program as his opportunity to spread wealth and entrepreneurship in America. The program cost $1400.

When I arrived, there was little educational content. Of the small amount of content offered, none was different from the content delivered at the teaser course where the two-day event was sold. We were told that we would learn the tactics of buying tax liens with our two-day event admission ticket.

In actuality, here's what we got:
1) An in-depth overview of their software (screen shots) that we could purchase for $2497 today only. It was presented as the only intelligent way to go about tax liens. No tactics were shown for buying tax liens if we didn't purchase this members-only area of their website.

2) A series of selling testimonials from people who joined the live "tax lien tours." The tour in Houston was offered to us at a price of $8997.

3) A series of selling testimonials from people who found success with the "Project Prot mentoring calls - 52 weeks of mentoring calls for $9997.

4) The package deal of all three for $21,997.

The entire day was an infomercial with nothing offered above and beyond what we got from the free teaser class. Remember, we paid $1400 to attend the infomercial. How convenient that they were able to qualify their leads by finding out which attendees might have enough money to pay for the next series of classes.

I have no problem with up selling if it is a 5 minute side note. I learned nothing in the class. I can't believe I got scammed.

I don't know if Donald Trump realizes that his affiliates are using his name to sell tickets to an infomercial. This company in particular is at www.GetTaxLiens.com
