Scott Yancey

Scott’s real estate training is a bait for their scam

Scott Yancey, sells his training on real estate to trap people into investing into his real estate scam. I joined his training in San Francisco and paid about $22,000 in total. In the training, the instructor, Tim Anderson, told us that we do not need to invest in million dollar homes. He even informed that the $500,000 was easily available for purchase and repair if homes through them. As per the CBS report, the average value of house in San Francisco is $925,000.

As, Scott Yancey and team provides 20%-40% of the market value, they tend to offer a very low financing. There are other companies which offer 90% to sometimes 100%. Scott Yancey offers $500,000 which is much lower than the average value of homes at San Francisco.

I paid $1,997 when the training started and they ask for remaining $18,997 if you wish to know the precise information on real estate investing. In short, they allow you to sit in their training with the first $1,997 investment and then will ask you for $18,997, if you wish to learn about their tactics which is not worthy of the amount they charge.

At first, they provide the DVD’s which quotes, “don’t worry if you do not have money.” Later, when you ask them for the funding, they will ask you for a high paying job and to put 5% – 10% of the total funding amount from their pocket.

It would be shocking to know that they asked me to arrange the buyer and the seller at the same time to get the funding from them. My question is, “Who will sell their house to Scott Yancey when they are getting much more money from another company.”

These goons are way more cleaver than you can expect and would brain wash you to make profit. Who pays such a big amount for training to get pennies in return? I did and many others as well. It was because they know how to lure people in investing.

They make it sound so easy that no one can delay in paying them the rest of the amount for training. I want my refund that they are not ready to pay. I knew it would not be a cake walk to get money out of their pocket when they are the master players.

Scott Yancey and his team of goons are smarter than you think and would take different turns to make you believe in what they say. Their promises are fake and illusionary. Since date, Scott Yancey and his firm have not made any great success which can prove the above claim incorrect.

Scott Yancey is a fraud and would make you repent later. I am still struggling to get my money back which seems impossible.

  1. Scammer

    The actual information, when they give it, is interesting but the majority of the time they are trying to get you to spend $35,000 to complete the training. They also ask you to go through some websites that you end up with free trial time.

  2. The target card is worthless & not fulfilled by target

    Don’t go please I was there today at the Las Vegas Suncoast Hotel event it’s all scam which most make money events are, but this event takes it to a new level which should send up red flags they offer you a free $250.00 target card & free lunch to suck people in. The target card is worthless & not fulfilled by target?? That is the first lie,

    the lunch well I don’t know I did not stay it was almost dinner time & no food had been served yet after reading other reviews the food was not much better than the magical act performance put on by Todd ??? who knows who he is.

    It saddens me that this not illegal to perform such a manipulative act of lies is beyond me. My son has learned on his own & has been making money with real estate for 20 years now & never had to pay to learn how. Shame on you all I will never watch Flipping Vegas again & A & E should cancel their sorry butts for promoting this horrible BS event I wonder how much kick back they are receiving to show their faces on a poster board.

    I watched these elderly people get up & pay $997.00 to go to more events I so wanted to stand up & scream DON’T DO IT read reviews they are your saving grace I went to see for myself after reading reviews so I could honestly say I was there & to let people know don’t get sucked into this scam.I hope this will save some people,you can learn about real estate on your own.

  3. They offer a payment plan, but they dont give you months to pay it off.

    I went to the yancey seminar in culver city on jan. It was every thing i expected an event to be where selling something was involved. No suprises there. The three day event after the free one was quoted at $997. They offer a payment plan, but they dont give you months to pay it off.

    Its more like you come up with 500 in two weeks and the rest is due two weeks later or however your paydays fall. I havent attended the 3 day event because it doesn’t begin until next weekend.

    After reading both point of views its hard to determine if it would be worth the $997 for the three days. No one on here said whether or not the do actually do credit checks or employment checks to gain access to their funding.

  4. Very Bad

    The claim that the presenters made was that they dont. None of the reviews here or in any of the reviews i found online actually confirmed or denied if what they promised you would get for the $997 was delivered immediately or if there were other contingencies involved.

    I am personally conflicted. If any one could give detailed and accurate information, it would be helpful to the community. Its one star because the information was based on my personal experince just from the free event. No reflection of the event its self. As with anything like this the people tell you what they have to offer. Its up to the consumer to make an informed decision.

  5. This is a scam company.

    This is a scam company. They entice you to their meetings via a $250 Starbucks card and other gifts that is a lie. Then once you are there they give you just enough information to make you feel that your time was well spent with them. Then they get you to pay for a 3 day event.

  6. He treats his workers HORRIBLE

    Scott Yancey is an absolute horrible person. I have previously watched “Flipping Vegas” a few times, all of each I am in awe of how terribly he treats his peers. Always yelling, cursing, and blaming others for issues, when he does no work at all himself.

    He treats his workers HORRIBLE, they never do anything good enough for him. I am not one to say I hate people or television shows, but I would never recommend this pathetic show and the terrible people featured in it.

  7. Never Again

    We received one of those “Special VIP Invitation” to one of the Scott & Annie Yancy free seminar on Flipping Houses. An extra incentive was a $60 Starbucks gift and two free resource discs, in addition to a free dinner for myself and guest.

    It was close by at a hotel and started at 6pm. My wife and I were drawn to the possibility of learning something about investing in real estate, plus the idea of getting a Starbucks gift card made it even more interesting.

    Long line when we first arrived at the hotel, we were told that the Starbucks card would not be handed out until the very end. First, we heard from Scott & Amie Yancy, giving a bit of their own backgrounds and how they started on this business. It was interesting.

  8. Bad Service Provide

    It’s such high pressure for you to sign for the ‘Retreat’ and it has to be done tonight! Any time that I have to sign something or freebies are ‘gone’ – warning signs start flying up! If it’s good, it’ll still be there next day or two, when you have more time to do research on the company.

    Finally, speaker gave a 20-minute break so people could sign up for the ‘Retreat’, after which our turkey sandwich dinner would be handed out… this was getting closer to 8:30 pm! The hotel had put a pickle underneath the sandwich, so the bottom half of the sandwich was soggy.

    Then a testimony by a former student on how great the ‘Retreat’ was and how well he was doing – all due to the class and the wonderful support he was getting. Another speaker talked for another hour on Stock Market and various Options and how to make money regardless of whether the market was going up or down.

    Of course, this tied into those that had signed up for the ‘Retreat’, the cost of the 3-day class for this Stock Market class and of course, the cost kept going down… if you sign immediately!

  9. Time Pass Service

    The actual information, when they give it, is interesting but the majority of the time they are trying to get you to spend $35,000 to complete the training. They also ask you to go through some websites that you end up with free trial time.

  10. I can see my bank account growing!!

    Just finished Boots on the Ground. Wonderful experience and very educational. Our teacher and speaker here in Edison, NJ Jeff Jensen was great. Can’t wait to put all info into action. I can see my bank account growing!!

  11. what a bad experience with this Scott Yancey Realestate workshop so far .

    I signed up for a workshop class, I informed them in advance that I couldn’t attend because of an emergency. I spoke to Rachel May in the quality assurance dept,

    she was Unprofessional & so Rude on the phone, each time I was try to speak to her. She keep cutting me off and said no one is intrested in hearing what I have to say, what a bad experience with this Scott Yancey Realestate workshop so far .

  12. Scammer

    lets all get him off the net work i hope he goes to jail i called the feds i hope they shut him down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! your classes suck

  13. WATCH OUT FOLKS!

    Although I felt the real estate and stock investing seminars were worth the 199.00 and 49.00 charges respectively, they just use the seminars to upsell systems of $6000-$12,000. They said that we would have 30 days free access to 2 different computer programs (which I NEVER even accessed nor signed up for).

    Within the SAME week of taking the seminars, I was charged on my credit card for the $29.95 and $24.95 respectively. VERY SHADY COMPANY!! I closed my credit card and am disputing the charges! WATCH OUT FOLKS!

  14. IT IS A SCAM.

    waited for my turn only to be surprised that the meeting with the consultant was to ask if I was going to sign up for the upcoming two day workshop and the cost was $38K which was the Diamond Elite 360. My consultant told me that my credit score could not qualify me to any credit cards that could pay for the $38K.

    That was the only package they were talking about. I dropped my face, I told my consultant that I did not come to the class to be asked to pay more money after I paid $1147 in the first place and was advised it was to do with the 3 days training, I told my consultant that was not a training.

    My consultant did not have much to say or offer since I did not come up with $38K. I went back to my seat and realize that a lot of people were leaving the class soon after they met with their consultants and some did not return after lunch.

    There was a couple I was seated next to, they also were complaining and were going to file a dispute with their bank for their credit card charge of $1147. I told them I was also going to the same.

    I left before the class was over and never returned the 3rd day. I am taking the matter up as need my refund. This is not right and is a rip-off. STAY AWAY from Scott Yancey and his company Affluence Edu, LLC. IT IS A SCAM.

  16. Scammer

    lets all get him off the net work i hope he goes to jail
    i called the feds i hope they shut him down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    your classes suck
    food sucked
    also no free laptops or tablets for the first 50 people
    also the mp3 player was not the one pictured on my tickets
    if you lie about that stuff
    i bet you will lie about the 1400 for the class too
    gonna get the word out also to the ags office

  17. My Son received an invitation and talked me into going as his Guest.

    My Son received an invitation and talked me into going as his Guest. He wanted to go because of the free food and the promise on a Free MP3 Player if you sat through the whole lecture, which we did.

    What we didn’t expect is at the end of the 3 hour lecture instead of a MP3 Player we got a voucher with a website that they said we had to go to. When people asked why they replied “There were more people than we expected and we ran out.” That put up the red flag for me and I had a feeling we would never see the Free MP3 Player.

    When we got home we did as instructed and filled out the online form for the Player. Well it has been a month and we have never received it. Yep, Scam in my book. We did get Free food and drinks but that was it. Of course we did not sign up for any of the classes and I am guessing we will never be invited back.

  18. Forget it I would never make time for them again.

    This is the worst company I had deal with, I have done many seminars and none have ever been as bad as this one. They text you avery day for two weeks to remind you about the seminar and how wonderful it was going to be and when I got to the seminar they told me that they overbooked and I didn’t fit in, that maybe I could attend the next one. Forget it I would never make time for them again.

  19. the ones that are giving the so called good reviews are paid liars.

    I went to an event in Midland,Tx. and it was the best money making scam I’ve seen in a while. They made about 100,000 dollars in one day.

    That shows you there are a lot of stupid people out there.No camera no book and no tablet . and the ones that are giving the so called good reviews are paid liars.

  20. I'm disgusted and going to bed!!!

    Went to this class a complete waste of my time. I should have went to the gym! I sat there for almost 3 hours for some of Scott’s investors to ask me for 2000 dollars for a 3 day seminar. Nope it’s a scam.. I’d rather put the money towards my children’s college.

    I will buy homes and rent them out on my own and pocket all of my money. Its crazy how people want you to give them money and they are the only ones who will benefit down the line… I’m disgusted and going to bed!!!

  21. I am convinced that this is a scam.

    My husband attended the seminar. He brought home the very cheap digital camera, and a packet of information including a DVD. He wanted me to take a look at it and see what I thought. I put the DVD,s in my player and they were blank. After reading reviews online, I am convinced that this is a scam.

  24. I give it to them, they can talk they're ass off. Save your money and time!

    Beware!!!! They took my money for a service I never used and won’t pay me back! The Guy peter I talked to in customer service was rude, and nothing was delivered on time. Including simple log-in information to one of their websites. After dropping a couple grand, you get a bag with a cardboard box, and some literature (I Should say flyers, it’s useless) in that.

    False hopes included with every purchase! 🙂 But wait, there’s more..How about a weekend of “training” where they’ll tell you how little you actually know, and for just upwards of 30k more, They’ll teach you to be as smart as them! Don’t use that as a down payment on a “real” investment, just give it to them! Because they will give you their funding! It’s better that way!

    Once your done with the whole process and paper work, if you do happen to do a deal, kiss that 2k goodbye! Because 100 days isn’t long enough for the promises they made to give that back after your first deal. Go and see for yourself. All of their shirts are tucked in,

    so you know they’re the real deal! lol After reading others reviews, I see they don’t have any experience with this actual program or the people they would have to deal with. Just Hopefuls. I give it to them, they can talk they’re ass off. Save your money and time!

  25. Bad Service Provide

    I’m in real estate and This guy and his wife are a joke. They’re selling information. WARNING!!! If you want to learn about real estate, take the time out to research these methods on your own. They are selling simple methods for an inflated price.

    I requested a refund for the tax lien program and the guy was nasty with me, I still haven’t received my refund after the allotted time given. This was after they failed to provide me with a login to the website 24 hours after registering. I challenge one person to show some proof that you’ve used the funding to complete a real estate deal, without that fake ass hands in the pocket testimonial. PROOF!!

    Who spends upward of 30k on info. or “education” when you can literally go buy a house cash for that price. At least that’s a down payment of a really nice one. Why not get the people stated in real estate with that money instead of taking it, and offering you invisible funding. Why? oh yea, because this guy is a info. pimp EDUCATE YOURSELF!

  26. This is a total and complete scam! I feel so ripped off.

    This is a total and complete scam! I feel so ripped off. My boyfriend signed us up for the only purpose to learn and educate ourselves in Real Estate investments. We sat for 4+ hours, first listening to Trent on how to do wholesale and fix & flips as well as a bunch crap about how the Yancey team supports their students,

    after his hours of speaking they requested everyone go back and sign up for their 3 day course which would educate us more and give us one on one consultation on how to invest, bla bla bla but that the sign up fee is $2,000 dollars but could reserve my spot for only $1,000 and then work a payment plan… Obviously I don’t have 3 days time nor a $1000 dollars at the moment so we passed…

    Then Nate goes on and speaks for a couple more hours about Tax Leins and Trust Deed and Land crap, all sounding very interesting. This catching both my boyfriend’s and my attention. Making emphasis on how difficult and time wasteful it is to do it through court house and you local municipality as well as limiting you to local purchases,

    we fell for the scheme and purchased access to the Simple Real Estate Packet. This supposedly would grant us access to ALL the state’s Tax Leins & Trust Deeds as well as present them in a simplified version, of course we would be able to view all states that participate in the online process. Yancey Team fails to mention that the ONLY state you can view anything on is Florida! But through the whole thing they say you can purchase NATIONWIDE.

  27. Don't recall anyone saying they were among the first "50" who got the promised Ipad in the invitation.

    very professional and very slick. Was there for the breakfast meeting was one of the few who did not raise my hand to jump at the “opporutnity of a life time” am glad I saved the $2000 and the potential $20,000-$40,000 by not joining this exclusive mentoring trainng program. by the way do not increase your credit limit on your credit cards as they suggest.

    Got a ‘breakfast” sandwich (could have gone to McDonalds for what they offered) and no tables just chairs, so I stayed in the back eat my breakfast and left with my “free digital camera vip attendee gift” actually a form requireing me to go to website , to recieve the free camera. Don’t recall anyone saying they were among the first “50” who got the promised Ipad in the invitation.

  28. Very slick well practiced Snake Oil Salesmen.

    Very slick well practiced Snake Oil Salesmen. Interesting outline of importantant subjects on investment strategy, with very little content or detail. They said in order to conserve everyone’s time hold questions to the end, but question time never came.

    Staged testimonials people were present. Entire 2.5 hours was sales pitch to separate you from $2,000 for weekend seminar on how to invest with them and incure more fees for their services with no way to get more content or detail without signing up with credit card first. I’m a seasoned investor with 37 properties already.

    They talk about low cost no credit check or qualifying loans at only 1% per month which is of course 12% oer year but APR is really higher. This seminar was at the Marriott in San Ramon yesterday on 9am-12 Sunis wday Oct 12, 2014. They didlsn’t validate $8.00 parking, they didn’t supply breakfest or lunch till after 11:30am.

    The meal was a catered box with all carb, not even a sandwich with cresant, muffin, fruit, orange juice. Also while I wasn’t very interested in the free digital camera knowing they can be very cheap and of little value they did not provide one as promised only a form directing you to apply on line for it to be sent/mailed but never even asked for the form or certificate number which makes me wonder even more.

  29. Scammer

    I wish there was a “0” rating for what I encountered at one of the seminars. Scott & Amy, I love watching you on TV, but Trent needs to go. Worse night EVER @ a seminar. First off, my name is NOT darlin. Secondly, a man was getting up to leave and he was rude to them. Third, I asked a question and a straight answer wasn’t even given.

    I left after 30 minutes of listening to his cocky attitude. I met a few people there who informed me of the boxed sandwich they were given fr a DINNER!!! That’s not a dinner, that’s a kids lunch.

    You want all this money for this BS school. But you can’t even give people a REAL dinner? Also… not for nothing, but if you want people to believe that this works, show them it does without them having to spend ANYTHING out of pocket.

  30. didn't have to endure an unprofessional presentation to take our money and waste more time.

    Signed up for his seminar, based on an infomercial, not having seen his TV show. (Had I seen the TV show first, so unprofessional, I would not have signed up at all.)

    Had numerous reminder calls and emails. Confirmed we were coming.
    We showed up… as did approximately 75 other people… but NO ONE from Yancey’s group did. After waiting about 30 minutes at a top notch hotel the hotel staff said they tried every contact # they had and could not reach any one from Yancey’s group.

    When I checked the internet for further info (I should have done this first before committing to waste my time) I see many complaints.
    The good news is we only lost our drive time and 30 minutes waiting for him, but didn’t have to endure an unprofessional presentation to take our money and waste more time.

  31. I really hope they leave me alone soon.

    My husband saw their infomercial and thought this event would be beneficial. So we signed up to attend. The next day while at work my phone rang 8 times from an unknown number- no voicemail left.

    I finally answered (annoyed at work) and this lady wanted to confirm that we would be there because there is a BIG waiting list. After doing research on this event- I decided that it was a scam and we weren’t going to attend.

    I called the number back- told them we weren’t attending and to take my information off of their records because I did not want to be contacted. Case closed? Nope.

    They have e-mailed me 3 times today already (it is only 10am) pretty much begging me to go. Ok, if you have such a big waiting list why does it matter if we go or not. DO NOT give these people your contact information. I really hope they leave me alone soon.

  32. Bad Service

    Hello Scott Yancey, we appreciate you letting us know that someone would contact us within a week, but it has been almost two weeks and no one from your company has contacted us. Please advise.

  33. That second presentation is way more intense and hard sell than that first one.

    Two stars. Not saying it is awful, but…. truth in advertising or upfront disclosure is usually not a friend to those trying to sell you something, and that is very true here. WILL YOU go on to succeed and make money in Real Estate after attending that first FREE Seminar at the local eatery where the presentation is being held? Absolutely not.

    WILL YOU go on to succeed and make money in Real Estate after attending the 2 or 3 day Seminar you paid $1350 for at that first Free seminar. Again sad to say, No!

    That second presentation is way more intense and hard sell than that first one. It has to be. The absolute priority of the 2nd presentation is to get you to spend $39,000 (your pitch cost may vary, but not by much).

    WILL YOU go on to succeed and make money in Real Estate after you to spend $39,000 and get fully involved with this large organization? Maybe; I can’t say.
