The main reason I am filing this report is to warn potential customers of the danger of purchaing products through Tigrent Learning. Tigrent Learning has had a string of other names including: Whitney Intelligence Network, Rich Dad Education, and Wealth Intelligence Academy. It seems to me that whenever there are enough complaints about one of their names, they simply change names and continue their business. I highly encourage you to look into the things that this company has done under different names and you will find hundreds of individuals who feel ripped off, taken advantage of, manipulated, and very unsatisfied with their training.
I am grateful that my situation isn't as bad as many of those that I have read. Hear is my experience:
I began reading books by Robert Kiyosaki a few months ago and agreed with most of his ideas about money and how they work. These books peaked my interest in real estate investing. When I heard about a free seminar about real estate investing hosted by Rich Dad Education I made sure that my wife and I were there. I should have known, but the seminar was a two hour sales pitch on purchasing an additional three day training for $495, which I purchased.
I attended the 3 day training in Dallas, TX and enjoyed it very much. I learned a lot about real estate investing, but didn't feel that I knew enough to go out and be successful. In the evenings after the trainings I began investigating about Rich Dad Education and Wealth Intelligence Academy and found hundreds of complaints. Many of the complaints were worse than the experience I was having so I determined that the company must have improved since they were written. I, therefore, purchased a smaller package of four online training courses and some software for about $6,000 because that was all I could afford. I finished the first course and was very unimpressed. The course wasn't what they said it would be. It was cheaply made with several technical problems. The information was elementary, repetitive and lacked sufficient detail necessary to be successful. I wish that I could refund the rest of my courses.
When I called and talked to someone to complain I was told to write a formal complaint. Two weeks later I received a form letter full of information that didn't apply to me. My assessment is this is a company sells overpriced courses to individuals by using emotional manipulation to get them to purchase them. They then do not care about their customers because they already have their money.
Again, my reason for writing this complaint is to encourage you to look at things that this company has done to hundreds of individuals under its other names. Make an informed decision. I would strongly recommend you find another place, like your local Real Estate Investing Club, to get your education.
