Take, Robert G. Allen Institute, for example. Robert G. Allen runs a group called the Enlightened Wealth Institute. Robert G. Allen would advertise that he wants to make you millionaire personally. But, there are plenty of complaints on the Internet that after paying about $5,000 to join his group, you then find out that you are just one of his thousands and thousands of students who falsely believed that they have joined a special group. Then, Robert G. Allen institute will bombard you with incentives to pay more for advance real estate programs. In most cases, they would make you believe that the only way to be rich fast is to pay and join these 'advanced' programs. They have quite a few tiers of advanced real estate courses. Some cost $50,000 or more. However, when asked the students of Robert G. Allen institute if those information are really useful, most of them say that you can get the same information by reading books on the subject or going to a real estate investing club meeting. There is also a trap of the guarantee clause. In order to get people to happily sign up for their expensive courses, Robert G. Allen institute promises 100% money back guarantees for some programs. However, almost all students of the Enlighten Wealth Institute found that it is almost impossible to get their money back. There are many rip off reports with plenty of stories on the subject.
