    I was curious about the ad on tv stating that they had over 10, 000 investors. A representative called me "ERIC" to get me to buy the system, when I told him that I had over 10, 000 investors on my myspace page- http://www.myspace.com/primeholdingsmgt and over 5, 000 investors on facebook- https://www.facebook.com/korasadler and over 5, 000 connections on linkedin.com- www.linkedin.com/in/korasadler and over 4, 000 followers on twitter- https://twitter.com/KoraSadler -- he called me a liar, and I said to Eric, "Wow, I can't belive you said that to me, than google me B$%#&!" He got mad and hung up on me... The nerve to call me a liar?! I have been actively investing in real estate since 1999. *** Here is a tip I use and you don't have to pay $495.00 to use it! --- The easiest method I have found for adding investors to your buyers list is having your local realtor pull all the listings that were purchased with cash in the last year. Now take that list and sort it so that you are only looking at people who bought multiple properties with cash. Those people are normally active real estate investors. What I do then is take that list and send a letter to them letting them know I am an active investor and have unique marketing methods that attract deals substantially below market value. I get a good response from the investors and have added over 20 cash investors to my buyers list in the last year. Internet posting on Twitter and Facebook-- “Investors needed for multiple investment properties”. I am a full time investor and I specialize in acquire below market value properties. My properties are typically single family residential homes and multi-family properties price between $10, 000-$300, 000.

    WOW! I just got off the phone with Ameraco and told Monica I don't just pay for something over the phone that I just seen on the Internet, without doing my due-diligence first. I told her I needed more info on the company, or talk to someone in my area that has had success with the program. Monica was transferring me to the Acquisition's Manager and all of a sudden I heard tone, "dial-tone" that is. Then I went on the Internet and landed on this blog. I've been in real estate for 25 years and have rehabbed about 15 properties myself. With what I'm hearing from all respondants, I'm not convinced that Ameraco is a legitimate company. I was a Finder/Bird dog for a group who rehabbed over 400 fixers. I'm not a novice when it comes to this business and I have street smarts as well, one of the attributes said to be possessed by billionaires on CNN today. My gut was telling me, after asking some questions, that it doesn't sound too good. And Monica was too pushy, like a good salesperson should be. All this played its role in deciding "not this one." I'm a Realtor in the nation's capitol and I have access to many, many "good deals." I know what a good deal looks like. I'll give you an example. I have a 3bdrm/2 bath w/basement rowhouse (fixer). Purchase $70, 000. Rehab Costs $35, 000 Resell Price $230, 000-$250, 000. That's a deal! I find them all the time. If you are interested in making money with rehabs in the Washington, DC area, and you have real funds to invest, let's talk! Email address is [email protected] I teach real estate investing also (have done real estate seminars/mentoring/coaching/etc). There is a goldmine in the DC area. As Warren Buffet said, "When do you buy things, at full price or when they are on sale?" He was referring to real estate. Real Estate Investing is still the best investment on the planet. Much Success To All!!!

    Some people just can't stand that are people are having success with the finditfundit Tutor Program. They just can't stand the fact there there are good things to say. Keeping negative thoughts makes them happy. Yeah, I know what you mean about the refund. I think every company should do that. That means I would be able to buy a few nice dresses and return them 6 months to a year, cuz they're just not workin out. Or better yet, get my tuition back from the school I attend, cuz the classes are a little to difficult, Yeah, that would be great.

    Thanks to all who purchased the Ameraco system and who posted about your experiences with the Ameraco system and "support/customer service". Thanks for sounding the warning in order that others can learn and be spared from your costly experience. Thanks most of all to "Diane" for helping to demonstrate what a lousy unethical company Ameraco truly is by how they treat there customers. If Ameraco's system were so great they would willingly give a refund to any disatisfied customer after a reasonable trial period of six months to a year in my opinion. I'm sure many others would agree. After reading the complaints on various sites I think I'll pass on Ameraco's offer. Diane if Ameraco were so great you would be issuing refunds to disatisfied customers rather than spending time on various sites trying to defend the company. You above all else, help make the case for the lack of integrity within Ameraco. Ameraco you should only want satisfied locators and satisfied investors. Any business only continues to exist with satisfied customers. But, maybe you only care about making a fast buck for yourself before you go out of business! Maybe that's what success means to you!...Well it won't last! Buyers beware! See through the loopholes and don't let them blame you if you buy in and fall flat after reasonable effort.

    I don't know what side to agree with. (or believe) SO many people try this business and fail... but there ARE scams out there too.

    I'm tempted to join this program on my own and draw my own conclusion. I already have hundreds of my own local buyers, but if they "do" provide buyers nationwide, I could send them dozens of deals daily... if only 1 of 12 convert, I'll make a LOAD of cash.

    Imagine sending 10 deals a day, if only 10% close, you're rocking.

    I run a short sale service. People send me the deals, we evaluate and accept the ones where the numbers "work". Of those, around 1 of 5-6 actually close.

    We get deals submitted ALL THE TIME that are crap. The numbers are horrible, sellers not responsive, etc.. When we turn those deals down, the members sometimes blame me as well. "You won't accept me deals!".

    No I won't... because they're NOT deals.

    Does it make me a scammer because I won't accept garbage?

    Anyhow, I wish I could get a free membership and send some real deals to these guys. I'd Prove who's right and wrong... real fast.

    Is that what I'm doing "exposing my own stupidity", I don't think so. Again, as long as there are lies to rebut, I will be here. Again, am I supposed to feel hurt that you will not become a member with Ameraco?? Well I'm not. I'm sure all the other Real estate programs like ours will be happy to forgo the upfront cost of anywhere between $7, 500 to $15, 000.00 for the training material, so you can be on your way to becoming a successful property locater. Call them up...

    Thanks Diana for opening my eyes to your fraudulent company, as long as there Diana’s out there to expose their own stupidity and unprofessional behavior then I can only be thankful enough not to invest any of my money into this company. Oh by the way the minute the sales guy over the phone ask for money for this program I knew they were a scam and if this is for real then why don’t you get your funds to run your program from actual closed deal and not from upfront fees. Please remove me from your e-mail list.

    DITTO to ikyleh1...Diane has done much more harm then good!! I was going to "buy in" to Ameraco but now I would NEVER, NEVER give these scammers any of my money. Just a bunch of "SLICKY BOYS". My guess is "Diane" is one of them. Hope Tom and Pacman sue their [censor] off! Oh, Diane, I did check my spelling, why don't you check your morals...bottom feeder!

    Diane, WOW, where do I start? Do you really think that you are improving the image of Ameraco with your juvenile rants, and slander? If this company is offering such a great product, then why jave I yet to find one person with anything positive to say? That, in itself says alot about your product. Now lowering yourself to name calling, is a bit much, don't you think? Aren't you a bigger person then that? Apperently not. Your rant is so counterproductive, and you don't even realize it. I just got offthe phone with an agent from Ameraco, but after reading this, thanks to you Diane...they will never see a dime of my money. Have a great day

    LOL is appropriate. Obviously someone higher up the food chain from Diane has missed a dose or 2 of their Lexapro. Harvard? ROFLMAO!! That's the exact line these "Advisors" use on the phone! Doh! Wait a minute! Do you think there's a connection? (asked in a whispery voice reminiscent of Bugs Bunny cartoons). Could this be another Amerwaco empwoyee attempting to squelch the same fwee speach that has awowed them to make a small fawtune?

    ATTENTION EVERYONE! YOU ARE ENTILTLED TO CHARGEBACK THE FEE ON YOUR CREDIT CARD IF YOU ARE NOT DELIVERED WHAT YOU ARE PROMISED!! IF DOUG DOESN'T LIKE IT HE SHOULD ASK FOR CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS!!

    Oh, and you are correct. Intelligent people won't waste their time on these blogs complaining. COMPLAIN TO THE NATIONAL BBB AND GET RID OF AN "A" RATING THAT IS UNDESERVED!!

    WOW did someone say LOLSUIT? uh oh Dianne better get a LOLyer. Posting someones real life info on the internets is SRSFKNBZNS. Dedicating a website to slander is ok tho. If you read the terms of service they disclose everything, theres enough info right there for a person of reasonable mind to make an informed decision, if you didnt know what you were getting into and found it too hard well sucks for you.. your an idiot. STFU and suck it up. They are upfront about everying included and specifically make no gaurantees. The $500 gets you an education, its up to you to use it, the resources they offer are minimal and require serious effort. If you went to harvard and couldn't get a job when you graduated would you blog about it and sk for a refund? Clearly this isnt harvard but the same principal applies. Its a How to, with minimal resources. The only thing it lacks is a "not for tards" label. pacman all I can say to you is OBAMA OBAMA OBAMA OBAMA
