Get Motivated SeminarScam

I recently purchased tickets that I found to a getmotivated seminar that was scheduled for Oct 26, 2009 in Fort Worth texas. I have been waiting weeks now to go to the event and was very excited about listening to the speakers. I didn't pay much for the tickets, it was like $20, but the sad thing is that I paid $20 for nothing. When I got to the door at the Fort Worth Convention Center I was told that there were no longer any seats. After waiting 2 hours in traffic and paying $40 to park I was told "there are no longer seats" for something that I bought tickets for. I mean wow. What a rip off.
Peter and Tamara Lowe need to learn how to stop ripping off people and only sale tickets for the amount of seats there are in the place they are having the event. They over sale the event by thousands and make hundred of thousands in revenue. Don't let them scam you. I was so disappointed I will never again fall for this scam. I mean if you are going to have someone like President Bush at your event at least have some ethics and make it a legitimate event and don't rip people off. Don't over sale an event to make yourself richer. I see now how they are making a ton of money, "BY RIPPING AMERICANS OFF."
PETER AND TAMARA LOWE DONT OVERSALE YOUR EVENTS
If you have 50, 000 seats then sale 50, 000 seats worth, not 200, 000

    I got there an hour and half late. Parked for free at the designated lot and found a seet. Ended up sitting about 100 feet from the stage. It was awesome to be that close to President bush.

    Thanks.

    That awesome to see a crook? Bush misused and abused the law of eminent domain in Arlington, Texas when he was governor, to take people's homes from them for the land to put in a stadium for the Texas Rangers, making millions off of the deal. A real sight for sore eyes, President Bush, oh yeah.
    These speakers at these seminars who are peddling their software, seminars, tapes, workshops etc they claim can help you make millions off the stock market or real estate is likely making more money selling software, seminars, tapes and workshops, than from any stock market or real estate. Beware of the deceivers in the highest form.

    the name is "Get Motivated Seminar " so do some thing. I found the seminar inspiring and even got my skeptic of a daughter to go. She went and spent money. Then it was an all around 'good thing.' if you do have an issue with your tickets. or any thing really. Call customer service.They WILL help you.

    I want to respond to H. Moody and agree with him. I loved the Get Motivated speakers. True to its name, that day does help you Get Motivated. The problem came cause i stayed all day. I should of left early when the main speakers were done. Instead I stayed for some guy named Stephen Pierce. He was ann amazing speaker, so polished and professional and made so many good points. I was actually thinking that I am grateful to Get Motivated for bringing us together so I signed up for him workshop on how to make money on the internet. It was cheap. So I went to the workshop by myself and bought the Silver Package for over $5, 000.00 dollars. I was hooked casue he is a Christian, obviously knows his internet marketing and Get Motivated stands behind him. how could i lose. right? no, pucky, that is wrong. all wrong. When I couldn't get any money out of the product after weeks of trying to do exactly what he said to do and spendin g even more money for hosting and all that, when I couldnt get no help from his staff or even a call back, when I couldn't get jack from this bozo after all that talk, Get Motivated acted like they couldnt imagine why this was their fault. They acted like they had nothing to do with this scammer. But they do have something to do with him. They sponsor him. they endorse him. they put him out there on their stage with the presidents wife for crying out loud! of course you believe in him, of course you trust him, he is talking with Rudy Guliani and Terry Bradshaw on the sidelines so who wouldn't think this is an ok deal?? i say buyer beward if anything goes wrong, you are on your own becasue Get Motivated does not stand behind their speakers. (I tried to check spelling but couldn't get that yellow thingy to work)

    How do we get the message out that Get Motivated is a scam. Go to get motivated, but do not buy ANYTHING!

    I went to this seminar to support a friend. I am very familiar with the world of motivational speaking and 'transformational leaders'. While there is no charge for this seminar, it brought to mind the adage, 'The only free cheese is in a mousetrap.' While there was no charge, the motivational speaking was very good but lost its charm when it became apparent that it was directed at seducing people to buy into the next phase, which is products or workshops sold under high pressure and extremely slick manipultive psychological tactics. It reminded me of why I chose to go the independent route for helping people. My soul isn't for sale.
