Complaint / review text:
I have read numerous scam and rip-off complaints against Armando Montelongo Seminars or AMS, unfortunately I had been sold into the belief that they were actually a legit group that was to assist us in our own financial growth through real estate.initially I should have gone with my gut instinct, however they offered us a partial payment option in addition to the idea that if you choose nothing, you'll receive nothing and you only have yourself to blame. I read that people in OK and other cities were purposively discounted from $1,497.00 to $800.00... We here in California were sold from $3,000 to $1,497.00...in any case the intention of AMS is to UPSELL! Everyone. The thing they do best is to separate you from your money!
I initially became aware when I encountered a family crisis and acted within a 72 hr. Rescission period by Federal & state law, sent via certified mail. I attempted to contact AMS with my concern, and later received a call from Marlina (210) 209-8875 that they would process my refund of $500.00... Then I'm later told two weeks... Then I finally received another call from Marlina, and that it would take up to another 30-days via check, while collecting % off our money... Yet I read various complaints that others have never received their monies back. I then contacted the Federal Trade Commission and the local state CA Attorney General's Office... Here's the catch: "We the people" basically means that more and more people from the same rip-off and / or scam need to file their complaints... So please help us help you!
