JT Foxx / fraud

1 United States Review updated:

“JT Foxx” (real name unknown) and Raymond Arron are fraudsters who have masterminded (and I give them some credit for it), a very clever operation in which they have gone to great lengths to avoid being classed as criminals, technically speaking. But, they ARE criminals. I will explain in detail how their seminars really work using manipulation techniques to get you to buy useless rubbish you think you can’t do without.

They are not as rich as they claim. And it’s obvious after a short while to any intelligent individual that they are not as wise as they claim and certainly not as experienced as they say they are. But they are good. Very good at fooling the uneducated. Of course people will benefit from their over priced programs full of mediocre content. If you're starving and someone throws you a £1000 soggy biscuit - you'll buy it.

Here’s want happens during the event.

Firstly it’s at a grandiose city hotel which will put any low wage earning mortal starting their own business into an environment in which they are not accustomed. It creates the illusion of success and promotes trust in the attendee’s heads. The tailored suit wearing speakers (mostly Raymond and “JT Foxx”) act confident and suave but if you’re an intelligent person with good instincts you’ll detect something that you can’t quite put your finger on. Later it sinks in – you notice a type of cockiness and self-praise which truly successful multi-millionaires simply don’t possess.

You are sat down at tables in a small group with water and a notepad. Raymond comes on first and starts teaching some really basic material which is mostly full of common sense and frankly if you haven’t learned it at school or haven’t already figured this out, you shouldn’t be running a business. There isn’t a thing he goes through which isn’t free on thousands of websites if you search well enough for some basic business strategy and management tips.

Next a grandiose introduction is given for this infamous mister “JT Foxx” – the name sounds more like a dodgy stock broker doesn’t it – from broke he’s apparently made millions in months but somehow you never heard of him. This tall guy with swagger struts on the stage with his hands in his pockets and starts telling you the facts of life. He’s 31 by the way and has apparently gone from -$34 to +$unknown in 6 years. He will avoid any question about his net worth and his rise to fame by talking a load of rubbish back at you for at least 10 minutes at about 20% faster than you can possibly listen. His only skill is talking. All self-made men are actually proud to tell you their story.

The first crack in their guise is when they pass round a form asking people to fill in the nature of their business and what they want to achieve. They say they will have a 1-to-1 with EVERYONE tomorrow and give them a personalised tip, a “blueprint” for their business which apparently is worth $5000 an hour from JT Foxx. But when the form comes round there are zero questions about your business – just a 1 line space to write what you want to do. Instead it’s actually a survey engineered to see what budget you have available to spend on training material and whether you would consider training. Then on day 2, oh dear, unfortunately they only had time to give one-to-ones and blueprints to the people who circled “yes” on “do you have a training budget”. What a coincidence. I made a point of going to the toilet so I could “overhear” a one-to-one. And guess what, the entire time they were successfully selling a £2, 000 coaching program to this gullible individual.

So day 1 of the seminar will seem completely legit to an uneducated, gullible, innocent or even foreign individual with little vision of their future and a poor understanding of business basics. Sure enough – those people will come away from day 1 feeling like they learned a great deal. But if you’re already running a business you’ll realise you knew it all anyway and will come away feeling like you should have only attended day 2. (Raymond tells you that day 1 is the setup for day 2 and that in day 2 you’ll have to pay attention.) So you come BACK to day 2 thinking it will be better.

The second day starts with some (slightly) more advanced and in-depth discussion on business branding. But let’s face it. If you don’t know what branding is or how to brand your business, what are you even doing there? You shouldn’t be in business in the first place. But after about 11am, the training JUST STOPS. THAT’S IT. THE END. NO MORE TRAINING. For the rest of the day their “friends” are invited to speak about themselves and about their quirky lives. Did you go to this course to hear about expeditions to the north pole by a sixty-something year old lady for 2 hours. Well done to her but do we care? Of course we don’t. Did you go there to hear about a book on zoomanity for 90 minutes by a quirky guy who apparently used to give lectures on copyrighting but doesn’t any more and be made to show gratitude for his presence? At this point you will be feeling fed up with boring generic rubbish which you knew you always knew.

At the end of day 1, Raymond asks what you want to do tomorrow. There are 4 options. Options 1 and 2 are full of buzz words like “how the rich get rich” and “how the broke stay broke”. Yes – those are the topics. Well thought out eh. But 3 is “How did Raymond Get rich” and 4 I can’t remember. The point is that 90% of the class voted “how did Raymond get rich”. So did we cover it? NO! Of course we didn’t. Because Raymond Arron actually isn’t rich at all. And he’s not doing these seminars for “fulfilment” like he says. He’s doing them because he’s and “JT Foxx” need the cash.

All of the training materials they go through in both days are simply echos of a man called Nido Qubein. And then – surprise surprise, they actually play you videos and phone calls from him. For over an hour. Apparently “JT Foxx” spends one million dollars a year to hear the voice of Nido on the phone for 30 minutes a week. O…K…Then. Even if that was true, “JT Foxx” must be incredibly thick because he spends a million bucks a year on stuff that I can hear for free - from my mother.
The only question in my mind the whole time was “are the minions at the back of the room and all of Ramond Arron’s friend guest speakers really aware about what he and Mr Foxx are really doing?” What do you think?

Why do you think they go from country to country so quickly?
Why can’t you find their real biographies? Even, their real names?
Why do their websites look like [censored] – like they are 10 years old? (I’m a developer by the way)
Why does “JT Foxx” claim he charges $15, 000 per hour for consultation and then offer to forward you his sessions with his own coach, Nido for just £50/month - but you have to sign up for 12 months. He claims by the way he’s losing money on that offer.

These people are no more genuine than Santa Clause, Rudolf and his red nose reindeers. But here’s the good news: They’ll get caught up eventually. And they’ll NEVER EVER be rich.
Good luck and God help you if you bought any worthless training program from them.

JT Foxx may now spam this thread below with a load of oposition like he did the last one. But if you've attended one of these events and seen right through it, tell the world here.

    Been through it. Ran my own businesses and built successful brands. But they offered more, on a level small business folks just can't get info to learn. I signed up, and it's been really worth it. Especially since you get access to some of the top business coaches and CEOs to learn from and get coaching from too.

    @MToz So, just som simple facts please, which should be easy enough to answer:
    1) What line of business were you in (you're writing in past tense "... Ran my own business...").
    2) Name two of the successful brands you built.
    3) Approximately what was the annual turnover before being "through it"
    4) Approximately what was the annual turnover after being "through it"

    These questions take 1 minutes to answer, if what you say is true.

    Yes, I would love to hear some names, and some content about what they taught you. I have watched several of JT's videos and attended an event and all I heard was big bubbles of hot air and self-agrandisement.

    My verdict: steer clear of JT Foxx. He just wants your money and is on the lookout for willing suckers. Don't be one.

    JT Foxx tried to sell an unsuspecting young female business owner on the concept that she needed to spent $30, 000 to sign up to get to the next level in her business. She has almost no current income and has spent over $20, 000 on other "Coaching Systems" that proved to be nothing more than a scam to get her to max out her credit cards... All promising to: Take her to the next level! She almost quit her job just to follow these scam artists. They definitely put the "Con" in Confidence. Everything that they teach is nearly free through countless sources and the thing that can be bought through others is typically about 1/100th the cost. JT Foxx and anyone associated with this unbelievably immoral program should feel the highest shame. Disgusting!

    Well I worked for JT for a short time as a coach. They do hire skilled sales managers as coaches and they keep them away from negotiations and processes. The job of a coach is to walk the client thru a weekly coaching program which is decent but it it is outrageously expensive and cannot possibly deliver the promised results ; particularly to people with limited expertise and zero sales and marketing skills.

    It took a while for me to figure out the set up. They are careful to keep the parts and peoples separate. They also have people working the web full time to remove negative articles or drive them down by writing lots of SEO/SEM laden stuff that sinks the negative news about him.

    I finally found out from clients about how they have been misled and screwed out of their money by JTs elaborate scamming tactics.

    Here is how it works.
    1. He invites people to events; people with average jobs some not so average but good retirement plans... think teachers, nurses, lifelong government or Verizon employees with solid pensions looking for that next career.
    2. These events are held at the top hotel in town ( to impress)
    3. The prices are some what reasonable. You can however elect to get celebrity speaker photos at $100 a pop so you can spend and most do upwards of $1000 just for that. By selecting a celebrity photo you have passed the first chump
    test of someone who is easily impressed and duped.
    4. They bring in the speakers big Players, so Woz, Travolta, Top inventors like the founder of Life Lock, the guy who runs Storage Wars. They ply you with food and booze. They give you a questionaire so they can gage if you are willing to spend. It is carefully designed to confuse. They tell you only a select few are invited to the next step. THIS is where they screen for the Rubes.
    5. SO you have been selected. By this time you most likely have had three or more drinks. They take you to a room with three guys. They start to schmooze. They get you to get out your credit card to prove you can go to the next step if all agree. One guy memorizes your card number or they check it from when you signed up. He leaves the room to see what the limits on your card are. They smooze you into signing on.The bring in a phone call from top gun who taught JT everything Nido Qubein. They press you with everything they have til you sign.
    6. You start the program and within a month you realize you have been scammed. They double down. They offer some freebies and buy time. Finally they ignore you more and more and more until you give up.
    I worked for this guy over 10 years ago. cannot understand why this is still in operation.

    I am an actor, comedian, and motivational speaker, and so I figured that people in my fairly wide circle had heard of someone named j.t. foxx. when I asked fellow actors, no one had ever heard of him. and since he's not really a comedian, it was definitely no surprise that no other comedians had heard of him...

    But the most telling thing was... when I talked to all of the leading motivational speakers in my circles... not one of them had ever heard of him. how is that possible?? if you are a supposed millionaire and a megaspeaker... how is it that no one has heard of you?

    Two reasons spring to mind: (1) folks in entertainment have heard of him, but their dealings have been very negative, so they wish to distance themselves as far away from him as possible or (2) his own branding is completely ineffective, because no one in the same business as you has ever heard of you. either way, it doesn't speak too highly of you...

    However, this must be the way we speakers are supposed to make money, because I also attended a "seminar" with james malinchak, his big money speaker boot camp, and it pretty much had the same format... you couldn't even talk to him or approach him without laying down thousands of dollars for a vip lunch, etc.

    This is not a business model I wish to adopt.

    JT and co. have built a great scam machine. If he is so rich, why do his suits not fit him? There is sadly a minority that can be brain-washed into parting with cash for empty promises and I have certainly been duped in my life. But not by JT, no way. Tap on the shell and it is hollow. I helped Brent Turley, his warm-up speaker in Frankfurt to remove the last few rows of seats in the conference room ... so that it looked like a full house on the photos! Since then, surprise surprise, every JT event photo is captioned "Another full house!" But why then does he berate the non-shows as being weak? I thought we had a full house, JT?
