Review updated:

I just purchased Stacy Kellams's new launch product "Tax Sale Arbitrage" and it is a blatant plagiarism of another course by established real estate professionals. It is missing a lot of information and is clearly stolen from the actual site. He is selling this course for $997 and claiming to be an expert on the topic when he doesn't have any experience at all with it. Not only that but now I am trying to get a refund with no replies to my emails.

Please help other people avoid this scam, he is doing a lot of promotion for it and so many people are going to be screwed by it... I am a lawyer and I can't imagine his site will not be shut down in the coming weeks, leaving all his new customers out their $997 with nothing to show for it.

    Hi all,
    I am thinking of buying the Hooked on Overages course but it costs 3 x payments of $597, a little too expensive. So I am wondering if someone has bought it and if you could tell me if it's worth it? Also I live in Australia and am hesitant to pay so much money if it is not doable from here, any suggestions...?

    About a month ago I Ordered the Stacy Kellam probate goldmine ebook and it is basic information that will leave alot of unanswered questions. Ron Mead has a much better and more thorough course.

    Also beware that Stacy Kellam will sign you up for a 30 day free trial for a backend website, that is of no value and they are absolutely non responsive if you try to cancel or get a refund! I was not aware that I was signed up for this trial monthly billing.

    I called and emailed several times with no feedback and they charged my card $49.95 which I am still trying to get back.

    They are just out for money and not customer service oriented at all, will not respond to you, when I tried to dispute it with my bank to get the money refunded they actually communicated with them to dispute the refund, but never responded to me.

    Advice - Save your money and time!

    I missed out on the first of the webinar for land for pennies on the dollar. Lots of this information we have to take with a grain of salt, decide if we are going to do the due diligence it takes to make the proposition work, and stick with it until it does, if it makes sense to begin with. Buying property in the middle of a swamp, desert, the ocean is not necessarily too smart. If you are knowledgeable about the area and what is selling for how much; you might could make a boat load. I did like the thought of bringing in $67000 per month. It is good to have input from someone knowledgeable about the area in question.

    Just watched the stacy Kellams interview of Jack Bosch.

    the subject was land pennies on the dollar and or even free sell and make thousands.

    While there are literally millions of lots in the US that are saleable for next to nothing they have no value. And they have traded for years and years from one unsuspecting buyer to another.

    The very first case study they showed was a parcel of land in Lake County CA. I happen to be an expert in that county. Like most of this cheap land these lots were created in the 1920's and yes they are legal lots of record and can be bought and sold. But they have no value. The particular lot in the case study was in a subdivision above the town of Lucerne CA. the roads were put in 40 years ago, there is no power water or sewer and most of the roads are no passable even with 4 wheel drive there is no value in these lots. Some unsuspecting buyer will buy it sight unseen and loose there. He bought the lot for 289.00 dollars. there is 7000 platted lots there. He will no doubt tought the deserts of CA and AZ again millions of platted lots with no value. Then he talks about path of progress. This is truly buyer beware.

    As purchaser and successful user of the TSA program it seems to me that you all are so busy bashing something you've not tried that you have squandered the opportunity to make some really good money. My first deal paid for my course, my trip to Austin to enjoy a wonderful investment seminar sponsored by Stacy and profit for me. The other six deals that I have currently working will provide a great springboard to establishing a long-term profitable business.
    Sorry you guys missed out. Taking advantage of the 30 day money back guarantee would have been a sensible step instead of whining.

    I have also researched this topic and found one course that is far more legitimate for only $97.00 not $1, 000 and over that the others are charging. The website is unclaimedrealestatefunds.com
    its worth checking out

    Also, RE: $9.97-down vs $97-down Hooked on Overages. Look at the fine print: it's actually more expensive, in the long run to do the $9.97 down deal.
    $597 1-time payment, or
    $97 down, plus $297 for 2 months = $691
    vs
    $9.97 plus $697 = $706.97, or
    $9.97 plus $397 for 2 months =$803.97

    The $9.97-down digital trial is still available...Google "Hooked on Overages $9.97"

    I bought TSA...and I returned TSA. It's garbage. The Powerpoint slides are poorly written and contain spelling and grammatical errors, the audio on the mp3's is junk, and Stacy is just babbling half the time (like he had one too many beers when he recorded it), the state-by-state guide doesn't have every workable county, and many of the URLs to the counties on there are incorrect, his promise of a website ended up being "go to GoDaddy and buy a .com, go to Hostgator to host it, and take this HTML to a webmaster and have him build you a site that looks like theirs." Going through the videos, you find more and more "extras" you have to buy in order to "be successful."

    All in all, Tax Sale Arbitrage was crap...when Stacy made it available on the 24th of March (when I purchased it), not all of the modules were online, only 2 of 8. When I sent the materials back and asked for a refund, they had only made 5 modules available. It's obvious that he doesn't really know what he's talking about, and is only looking to make a quick buck. Why else would he say "One payment of $997, or 2 payments of $597.50"? ...oh, and here's the kicker: when you "buy" his program, he says, "Wait, you're card hasn't been charged yet...spend $1, 000 more and I'll throw in x, y, z"...however, yes, your card has, indeed, been charged. Hooked on Overages looks like a much better program...especially for half the price of Stacy's TSA. Looking over the 5 videos, Rick is confident, speaks proficiently, and knows his stuff. Tax Sale surpluses/overages DO exist and are a legal way of not only helping people, but making a good living. It doesn't matter what Program you get...as long as it's not Stacy's Tax Sale Arbitrage.

    I don't know if Stacy's TSA is a rip-off of Rick's HOO, but it is interesting that Stacy "accidentally stumbled upon overages", just like Rick, and Stacy's 2-payment option JUST HAPPENS to be the same price as Rick's 1-payment option.

    @mattspiano Ok guys this is not hard to do yourself you just need certain tools to work with and the right paper work for client to sign in a certain order, this is for overages mortages all you have to do is investigate watch free videos on it i leared a lot from rick dawsons webinars that he hosted, you do need a skip tracer to find the folks and the list are everywhere

    So what's the deal here?? As someone who got excited that this Tax Sale Arbitrage may be a workable system, is the hooked on overages the real deal? Will it give enough for the $297 to have us make $?? And are we saying TSA is not a workable system, or simply overpriced? There is a webinar tonight & I have to make a decision. Perhaps both are ripoffs? Has anyone made $ on either?

    Yeah it looks like that was just for 1 day only, still at $97 that is only 1/10th of Stacy's rip off course.

    Thanks for all the info. I was getting ready to order Stacy's info. today but was skeptical. Glad I read this review. I just went to hookedonoverages.org and it was just a video offering info. for $97. There was no content regarding what kind of detail you would receive and there was not even a place to order??? I then googled their name and ordering info. came up with a price of $1697!! Anyone have any more info?

    Are you serious????!!!... $9.97? I will have to check that out. I was really excited about the 5 series video that Stacy has up. I was even willing to pay the 1000 when my tax refund got back, even though I think that price is a little steep. Stacy had mentioned something about a joint venture opportunity. Has anyone heard anything else about that?

    I wanted to update my complaint that I have now be refunded. Or told a refund is processing, anyway.
    I paid $1697 for Hooked on Overages in Sept 09 so if you can get in for $9.97, I'd go for it.

    Hey guys, sorry to hear about your trouble with Stacy Kellams. I can confirm that his course does appear to be a copy of Hooked on Overages. You can get the original, authentic course for only $9.97 right now, so don't give up on tax sale overages! Just buy the right course! You can get it at hookedonoverages dot org.
    By the way, I'm sure Stacy will honor refunds, sometimes it just takes a few days for customer service people to respond.

    I went to the virtual courthouse riches site and couldn't find the system similar to the tax sale arbitrage. me and my wife ALMOST bought stacey's course, but i'm very glad we didn't after reading the above comments. I would like to learn about this technique, but i'm sure someone can show me without asking me for $995.00. Thanks so much for putting this on here!

    The material in Stacy Kellams's course is taken directly from Virtual Courthouse Riches which also includes a forum and a lot more information.

    The course is called Tax Sale Arbitrage. Stacy Kellams did a five day video series that explained about the course. Basically, you're trying to find people who have had homes foreclosed upon as the result of a tax lien foreclosure. I'll have to do a lot more research on this subject before I pay $1000 for Stacy's course...
