But the plot thickens…Today we got this email from a reader (emphasis in bold is mine):
I tried Postcardforprofits.com and was convinced by their high pressure sales team to sign up for the personal mentoring school. The first appointment with the coach was set up on Tuesday, three days after I signed up and it took them four days to set me up on the website personalwealthacademy.com where I was supposed to receive assistance in setting up my postcard projects. I was very suspicious the whole time, and decided to check out who Personal Wealth Academy was. The phone number is answered as Corporate Office, phone number is 866-599-6361. I called information to check out their address 360 S. Technology drive Lindon, UT 84042, there is no such company and no such address listed. You may want to check them out as well. I think this is another company that Luke Jaten is running. I wish I had read your review prior to me signing up with this company. Hopefully I have canceled the charges in time. Thank you, your website has been most informative, I will use it again.
Now this sounds familiar. Where have we seen this high-pressure approach to join some private mentoring program? Oh, that’s right! The Google Treasure Chest and Angela Penbrook scams both tried to sell personal mentoring/coaching. (Scan through the comments for the word “coach.”)
How much will personal coaching set you back if you sign up like our e-mailer did? More than $9,000!
A report at Ripoffreport.com associates Angel Stevens, of rebate processing scam fame, with this “Personal Wealth Academy.” What seems to be going on is that this “academy” purchases lists and contact information from people who have signed up for work-at-home offers. Their telemarketers then contact the people on the list to sell personal coaching.
I’m weary. It. Never. Stops.
