I was contacted by Patti in December of 2016 to become part of her team and work for her. My first red flag should have been that she refused to sign a contract with me. She paid me the first month, but then after that, she was constantly late in paying me. She kept using the excuse that her PayPal account was frozen. In March, she was over 30 days past due in paying me for my services and I decided to terminate my relationship with her. She has refused to pay me the remaining money she owes me. She refuses to respond to emails, phone calls, messages, everything. Her current business manager is just as guilty of helping her to commit fraud as she is. 

Steer clear of Patti. From what I've seen, she does this to coaching clients as well as those that work for her. There are many lawsuits against her if you do your research. If you want a great business coach, keep on searching and do your due diligence - talk to their current clients about their programs. IF they are a legit coach, they will provide you with people you can talk with to ensure it's a good match. Steer clear of The Entrepreneur Unleashed and Patti Keating if you want to grow a respectable business and not get taken for a ride.

Scammed by Patti Keating

AUTHOR: Nataleigh - (United States)

I was contacted by Patti Keating the week before Thanksgiving 2017, she was looking to hire me as her Virtual Assistant.

Our initial Zoom call we had went great and we started working together the Friday before the holiday. She also hired a social media manager the same time she hired me and we all started working together.

The first red flag that I shouldn't have let slip is that I sent her over my contract but she never signed it. When I asked if she signed it, she said not yet because she needed her lawyer to read it over. I let it slide because she really talked herself up and how she wanted to build a team to work with her long term and when I billed her after the first two weeks of work, she paid me immediately.

When I billed her on Friday, December 15, 2017 for the next two weeks of work, I didn't get paid. That weekend she was very slow getting back to me and said that it looked like my payment was processed via paypal which it was not. She said the week before that her bookkeeper "Kathy" is the one who does her billing. All weekend I didn't get paid, I heard nothing from her on Sunday the 17th. I decided to reach out to the social media manager she hired and she hadn't been paid either, and she was supposed to be paid for 3 weeks of work and she still has not been paid either as I write this.

Sunday night we messaged on Facebook back and forth about our own experience with Patti and the stories that we told of Patti did not match up and it just seemed like someting fishy was going and didn't add up. We had our normal Zoom call Monday and Patti was extremely vague as to what was going on with our payments. She first said her bookkeeper, Kathy tried processing our payments on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 but we hadn't invoiced Patti until Friday the 15th and then later in our call she said that she transferred money from her investment account to PayPal and was waiting for funds to be released. She was very non chalant about the whole situation, unapologetic and her stories didn't match up with anything that she told me or her social media manager.

Not once has she kept me in the loop about my payment and I have reached out to her every single day...but nothing!

She's become unresponsive besides a nasty email telling me that I should go get a job because entrepreneurs are pioneers, they take responsibiltiy, they're solution focused...yet doesn't say a word about when I'm actually getting paid.

She left me hanging right before Christmas when I was counting on that money.

Working with Patti has been an awful experience and to know someone who can do something like this to not one, but two entrepreneurs is extremely disheartening. After discovering that Patti has done this to other people as well, I think that some sort of justice needs to be served.

Patti Keating is not to be trusted.
