Private Equity Institute / is a scam

1 New York, NY, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

They advertise a course of $1000 promising you insider knowledge of private equity and prospects of employment and internship to work at a private equity firm. However, all they teach you are simply materials readily accessible from major news and web sources. The founder Matt Murray is simply scamming everyone who is so eager to work in private equity, using this psychological weakness as bait to fulfill his other project (NY Private Equity Exchange) getting students to work for him as free labor. I remember once he even asked the students to lift a piano at his home.

Don't fall for this!

    I was scammed also by Matthew Murray.
    The course is a joke.
    You learn nothing.
    Matthew Murray claims PEI is a vast nonprofit and that we are honored to learn from him. The reality is he is an unemployed hack that makes a living defrauding people who want to learn about Private Equity.

    I have contacted the bunko Division of the NYPD.

    An arrest is imminent.
