Real Estate Mastery / Onyx Coale and Robert Addie
Onyx Coale and Robert Addie have a big scam going here. They introduce their scam at a free seminar, usually at a 2 or 3 star hotel in the ballroom, where they give away prizes like free dinner at a crappy Chinese buffet. Their pitch is, for a fee of $6000, they promise a "lifetime" of real estate consulting services by supposed "experts" in real estate. After they collect your non-refundable fee they proceed to hold a couple of "classes" full of fluff and non-information, accompanied by a workbook chock full of blank pages. They then proceed to try and sell you their own properties at a profit to themselves. If you don't buy a property in the first few weeks they tell you you're not trying hard enough and to take their two useless classes again. They also send emails offering you to join them at one of their weekend seminars on real estate investing for the bargain basement price of $2000 for the weekend. Pay in advance and save a whopping $100!!! One guy who used to work for them, Darren Kirkland, suddenly parted ways with them back in 2005, giving no explanation. Shortly thereafter, he foreclosed on all the properties he owned and had bought while working for them. This can be verified at pbcountyclerk.com by typing in his name in the official records search. This guy was a car salesman before he hooked up with these two.
These two also try and recruit all members to invest in their other ventures, including the "Coyote Ugly" chain of bars and the MLM scam Monavie. They have made millions off of innocent victims from these scams. I'm sure there are others, as they have lived in New Zealand as well. Google Onyx Coale Robert Addie Monavie, Real Estate Mastery and see what comes up. All their scams are done under the supposed auspice of their "desire to serve others". Riiiight.
In the picture posted, Onyx is the blonde with the horsey face and bad fashion sense and Robert is the Pillsbury Doughboy doppelganger on the far right next to her. Don't know who the other two are, possibly victims or co-conspirators, but they scare the crap out of me.
Recently, to make themselves look like legitimate "philanthropists", they donated a Palm Beach County home to Youth Crime Watch of America. This was probably paid for with their victims' money:
