I ordered a real estate course from the organisation of Dean Graziosi- He advertises profusely on TV His e-site is deangraziosi.com . He operates through a Corporation by the name of PMI EDU Center LCC located in Lehi,UT 84043. The program I suscribed to is called DEAN INNER Circle.
the cost was $3275. I ordered the course on )08/07/2012.they have a cancellation policy of seven business days after enrollment. they provide mentoring as well as learning computer software. I was to meet with my mentor once a week over the telephone. Our "mentorship session" lasted from 5 to 15 minutes each time.
I subsequently attended an additional"free seminar" of Dean Graziosi at the beginning of October 2012 during which I understood that their modus operandi was to place in front of my eyes enticing cases of members such as myself who would achieve great resullts because the organisation would advise you and "hold your hand" on all critical aspects of a given RE transactions.
they offered different programs ranging form $10,000 to $25,000 or $30,000 to participate . I declined alll of their enticement.
In view of this experience,I went back home to cancel my ongoing relationship with them on 10/23/2012 and asked for a total refund of the $3275 I had invested with them. they refused stating that I had signed a contract for a 7 day refund.
I then called my credit card company mastercharge by Chase Bank and requested a credit for my charge. MasterCharge complied with my request and issued a total credit for the stated amount. Subsequently ( perhaps 30or 40 days later, Valerie Ingram customer service specialist of MC called me and said that PMI EDU CNTR refused the refund.
Upon my disapointment , she offered to call PMI and asked whether I was prepared to make a compromise. I mentioned that I would be prepared to let go $1000 of the total $3275 in view of the fact that I had "consumed " some of their services. She asked me to wait on the telephone while whe spoke with PMI about my proposal. She came back to me after 5 minutes stating that she would issue a credit to my account of $2275 of the total purchase of $3275.
I was satisfied with that oucome, until I receive la letter from MC stating that after contacting PMI, they refused my offer and sent about 25 pages of documents showing the contract I had signed. Valerie Ingram of MC thus informed me that credit would be taken away from me. I informed Valerie that I had considered my offer of $2275 instead of $3275 as accepted by PMI, and since they now reneged on it, I would now demand a full credit of $3275.
this is where we stand right now . What shall I do , contact again PMI or MC?
what is my leverage: filing reports with BBB in Utah, Contacting the State Attoney Generalof Utah, contacting the Federal Trade Commission?
I have been a cusotmer of Chase for over 40 years , in the same branch,showing that I am not a fly by night customer trying to get a refund.
I wonder whether the branch could have an influnce on MC. they are the same company but a different organisation within Chase.
If you require additional details, I will be glad to supply them to you.
