Accurate 6-Point Review - Scam or Not?
not affiliated with Russ Whitney, Whitney Group or Wealth Intelligence Academy
[Sources for reviews include the Better Business Bureau, Attorneys General, FTC, customer input, and our personal review. Russ Whitney is invited to contest and correct any information by providing clear and compelling evidence]
COACH COST: Up to $15,000
COACH QUALITY: There is no evidence that Russ Whitney's "coaches" are experienced, actual investors. Many of the complaints against the Russ Whitney, Wealth Intelligence Academy and the Whitney Group concerns coaches who are less than professional and knowlegeable. Only two of the courses reviewed on this site use real, practicing investors as coaches - Ron Legrand and Bill Vaughn's course. If coaching is important to you, those are the only two worth considering. And only Vaughn's course, "The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate" provides the coaching for free, as it is offered by a non-profit.
SUCCESS RATE: Cannot determine the success rate of Russ Whitney Wealth Intelligence Academy students, as they do not monitor or poll customers for this. However, from the various sources of information, all indications show a very low success rate.
BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU RATING: Russ Whitney has a rating at the BBB that is among the worst in the history of the BBB. His BBB record is so poor, the BBB no longer handles any more complaints about him - they have washed their hands of him, so to speak. Now he is listed as Whitney Education Group, which has a C+ rating, along with the warning that on July 2, 2012, a Consent Agreement and Final Order was entered finalizing the Florida Attorney General's action against the company, alleging violations of Florida's Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act (Case Number 2012-CA-8543-O
OVERALL COST: $199.00 per boot camp (of which several are required). Mentoring (Wealth Intelligence Academy?) is an additional cost, running up to $15,000
COMMENTS: Based upon all sources, it is our opinion the Russ Whitney program is one of the three worst real estate courses to ever be offered. Mr. Whitney had attempted to "strong-arm" us into removing this page, but the truth is always the best defense, so this page remains. We are willing to change it, and give a better review as soon as there is some indication that Whitney is offering a better, more worthy program.
