We were ripped off by John Beck Mentoring for $8,499.00. nThe charges came about when we purchased the John Beck Real Estate Information that we saw on an infomercial. When we received the packet it stated we needed to call the company within 24 hours. On June 1, 2006, we did and we ended up speaking with Charles (Chaz) Lane. He is apparently a supervisor at the John Beck Mentoring Company. We spoke with Chaz for about 2 hours. He told us about purchasing real estate and having pros work with us, people who have the knowledge that would help us succeed. He told us we had nothing to loose. We would have 3 days to look over the information. He told us to write down ROR right of refusal. We were told we had 3 days to refuse and get our money back and that was AFTER we received the product. nThe next morning after the phone call we looked up John Beck Real Estate on the Internet. What a shock!! So many complaints! Most of the complaints were so severe that they were contacting the Better Business Bureau, Utah State Attorney General’s Office, FBI, and other legal entities. nOn June 2 at 6:03 PM we left a message for Chaz Lane. (800-508-1835 x 246) We stated were exercising our right of refusal and canceling the program. We expected our money to refunded to our credit card. (Note this was about 21 hours after the order). We left another message at 7:00pm. We sent e-mail to Chaz Lane. nOn June 3 we sent a registered letter to John Beck. We also spoke with Chaz Lane directly and he stated that he could refund the money that he/we didn’t need to go further in the company. We followed this phone call up with an e-mail outlining the phone conversation. nOn June 6 the two packages containing (we assume) the Program Materials arrived to our house via FedEx. Our daughter accepted the packages not knowing we had canceled our order. When I got home I took the unopened packages to the nearest FedEx. Office and returned them unopened. These packages were sent with signed receipt requested. I contacted our credit card company and gave them the tracking numbers. nOn June 12 at 4:30 pm I received a phone call on my cell phone from Julie Moore (866-373-4363) She was calling for our first mentoring session, we told her we had canceled the program. She stated that she had just gotten her paperwork and there was a note that we had canceled. She apologized for calling. nOn June 14 at 4:36 we received a phone call from Brady Williams (800-864- 9688). He was calling to either see if he could sell us more stuff or to see how we were doing with the program. When we told him we had canceled the program he stated that he was unaware that we had canceled and that he’d make sure we would receive our refund. nOn July 14 we received our credit card bill for $8,499.00. John Beck is willing to charge our credit card, disregarding the cancellation, and with no regard to the fact that we do not have (nor do we want) the product nor have we received the “mentoring service””. nWe are pursuing the the charges with our credit card company
the Utah Attorney General’s Office. We will join any legal complaint that anyone has going on this unscrupulous businessman. nGuys like this need to be stopped. nJohnnCamarillo
