John Beck Reviews

Is 'Free and Clear for Pennies on the Dollar' Legit or a Scam?


John Beck sells his training program and book, Buy Real Estate Free and Clear for Pennies on the Dollar through an aggressive infomercial campaign. The underlying principal of the program is buying taxed out properties for a fraction of their worth.

In addition to this book, you also receive Making Money with Free & Clear Properties on the Internet Book and a Quick Start Video and Free & Clear CD to Hottest links. John Beck offers quite a substantial amount of material for $50.

His books provide some loose guidelines on the proper methods in implementing these techniques and other successful real estate investment strategies.

One issue with John Beck is that many of his books are tools he uses to up-sell his students to more expensive courses. Once you purchase one of his books you will be called by his sales team to purchase much more expensive products.

We purchased his program for $6000.00 hard earned dollars. They then tried to get $3000.00 more for some business LLC set up. Well nothing ever happened we listened tried and followed all their instructions. Biggest mistake of my life.. DO NOT EVER believe your going to make big money in real estate unless you have money in hand at an auction. Good Luck to All

I bought John Beck's program years ago, it was good but he recommends going to county tax auctions, and you need $1,000 to get in the the county tax auction door and tens of thousands to bid on the properties, that were selling for five percent their value. I was just starting with a few hundred dollars and couldn't afford to make his program work.

I heard the FTC sued John Beck and won however he immediately went out and filed bankruptcy. I am a single older mom who lost big bucks to this crook! I cannot find any status of his bankruptcy as of January 2013. Does anyone know if we have a prayer of recouping any of our losses? I purchased his program AND mentoring back in 2007...

As an entrepreneur and a college student I heard it was possible to make money acquiring Tax Lien Certificates & Real Estates thus I needed help in getting started and figured everyone makes mistakes along the way but that's how experience is gained. When I purchased John Beck's Free & Clear program I wasn't looking to get rich overnight because one has to work hard in order to be successful but John is a con artist and when I attempted to get a refund the numbers were no longer in service but in reality he's not the only one because Donald Trump did the bait and switch and his so called license professionals were phonies which is why he's being sued now. My advice to anyone considering calling these 800 numbers don't and if planning to attend these so called seminars don't bother because once they have your money you may think you're in the program but in reality their advance course is a ploy used to get more money and in the end you're left with a credit card bill and we all know collection agencies don't want to hear excuses when its time to collect. I'm currently an E-bay seller which is free to sign up but there are those who charge $500 and up just to get you started which is a scam.

I ordered the course because I know people who have made money with tax liens. But after ordering john becks free and clear I got calls from telemarketers who made guarantees that it was a no lose endeavor I now look back at how stupid I was to fall for such bull. they stole my 8000 dollars the guarantee was worthless and trying to recover was met by rude lying crooks. After being unable to get anywhere I tried to file a report with the federal trade commission(a useless government tax thief) got know where except in a financial bind due to dealing with these lying thieves. I then did what i should have done first checked the BBB come to find out that the Mentoring of America who dose john becks courses has more than 35,000 complaints why all involved are not in jail amazes me.

Well I have read peoples reviews on this man, and I have read his book and watched the cds. Now with anything that is get rich quick, there are pitfalls, there are risks and its not as easy as it sounds, a lot of this stuff you have to take with a grain of salt.

With the information he provides, a small portion of it is useful. Not everything is accurate and in depth, it's more or less a get pointed in the right direction type guide that gives vague basics. My brother purchased this information about 6 yrs ago and he bought multiple properties and some he made 5k profit and some he made 60k+ profit and a few he lost on (not much at all) But using these basics and researching a little deeper ourselfs it does payoff.

We just purchased a property that sold for 1.4 million in the mid 90's, we paid less than 200k for it. so there is some truth to the material.

My parents and I fell for this scam two years ago and they lost $10,000 . I would love for someone to tell me how to take this scam artist down and stop him from taking anyone's money.

A few years ago, my husband and I purchased John Beck's simple program which consisted of a few books and, I believe, a few videos. Paid $52.00 with shipping and handling. We NEVER received ANY of these calls that people are complaining about here. Just got the package and that was it. And guess what, folks? It was the BEST package we received. We successfully purchased SEVERAL money-making properties that we never would have known how to purchase without John's help. WE HAVE NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR THE MAN. And, by the way, when people call and try to sell you something, whatever happened to just saying NO and going your separate way? I never have had a problem with doing that.

A BIG Thank You for posting this everyone. I have been thinking about purchasing this for months since I saw the infomercial. And like alot of you I thought, if it werent true I dont think it would be on TV...I only researched it before I purchased because I've been ripped off before... May GOD bless you all and I hope that all of you get your $ back and These ppl who rip other ppl off will get what they deserve..GOD Bless!

Thanks everyone, for enlightening me about this scumbag! Hopefully he and some of his cronies will do some hard time. I came upon this site by accident, but am very glad I have. You folks have saved me a lot of time, money, and misery! I have seen John Beck's con-fomercials and was thinking of buying into it. NOT ANY MORE! Thanks again! May you all band together and make him pay!!! Good Luck!

Total scam. Some people have found ways to get a refund. It all depends who you talk to and how firm you are in not accepting no for an answer. Email johnbeckscam@hotmail.com for some info.

John beck program scammed me many years ago. He and his coaches took almost 9000 from me. If there is a law suit, let me in. If I can stop anyone else from getting scammed I will.
