About Scott Yancey
Scott Yancey is one of the stars of the A&E television show, Flipping Vegas, and the proprietor of his own personal real estate investment system, which he promotes through seminars and books.
In his TV show, Scott Yancy, his wife Aimee, and a whole team of contractors purchase houses in the Las Vegas area and then “flip them,” which is a term used for affordable renovations made to a piece of property that will allow you to quickly resell it for a profit.
On his website, ScottYanceySeminar.com, his published biography says that Yancey’s grandfather was a successful real estate investor, who taught him the basics of profitable real estate investment from a young age.
Now Yancey is providing his expertise and knowledge to a wide audience, not only through his TV show, but also his book Go Time, and his nationwide series of seminars, which are described as “live real estate income events” where people can “learn secrets from the pros.”
These seminars are intended to show the attendees how to get started as an investor, how to pick the right area of real estate, how to create profit regardless of the state of the housing market, how to generate monthly cash flow, and more.
The website is very clear, however, that these seminars and informational sessions are meant to give people access to real estate education and investment training. Customers who attend this seminar looking for a ready made real estate business opportunity will likely have complaints, as this will not be the focus of the material shared.
TV stars of shows which focus on real estate flipping often take their information out to the public in this very way, just like the Armando Montelongo study course or the Fortune Builders educational website, which is run by some of the cast members of the show “Flip This House.”

Feedback Needed from someone who has paid for the seminar and attended.
A friend and I have went to the free seminar and are thinking about going to the paid seminar. Keeping the cost aside, I would like to hear from those who actually paid for and went to the $2000 seminar, not the the initial freebee. The one aspect that keeps us sitting on the fence about this is the contacts, that is really what they are offering. Do they really supply the contacts and finance properties if you put a property in front of them that has a positive cash flow? Please, those that only went to the initial seminar, I went also, so please, I am not asking for your opinion on the free seminar.
Don't waste your time or money
Just got back from this 4 hour long seminar in Knoxville, TN. They got quite a few people out of $2000.00 - $4000.00. Things they were saying just weren't adding up. Not to mention the company that was holding the seminar was not even affiliated with Scott Yancey, whom him and his wife were not even there. And as a reward for everyone attending and for those who paid for this "opportunity for people to get rich off desperate people who think they will get rich" seminar, we got a free dvd "book" and a Made in China "Digital Camera". The camera, might I add, looks like something I would buy my one year old daughter as a toy from the Dollar Tree. It says "Digital Camera" on the camera, no brand. I just think this is a scam for people to make a huge profit off of innocent people. And the thing is, to use their resources, you have to pay interest rates, and fees, and not to mention a $4000.00 deposit to participate in the FULL program. Someone correct me if I am wrong, BUT, this has SCAM written all over it.
Thank you to commentors
My husband and I attended the initial seminar. Quite a few people got sucked in and paid their $2000. We were very excited about the use of the money for only 1%. We truly don't have the money and shared that info with Daryl. He offered to give us a $500 discount if we didn't do the financing because it requires a lot of paperwork for him. We wrote a check for $1497. I felt guilty that so many others were paying $500 more than us. We then went home and tried to listen to the CDs. Two of the three we've tried didn't even play. The one that did was 10 minutes long and more rhetoric. We've read through the fine print on the "free notebook" which is very misleading and no way to verify who actually made the list to be put in the future drawing with thousands of other people. Too many red flags and misleading info. We will be heading to the bank in the morning to stop payment on the check.
Thank you for all who took the time to comment on this SCAM.
Waste of my time
I am studying for my real estate exam and figured this seminar would provide me with some insight of what is to come in my real estate career. I received a mailer and decided to RSVP for this event. Wow, what a mistake. I only stayed for the 1st 2 hours of the presentation. The audience alone was the determining factor. Not to mention they wanted you to commit to spending 2k to go to a 3-day seminar which will most likely be another pitch to spend even more $$$. I know you have to have $$ to make $$ but I dont believe this is the way to do it. I think it may be more advantageous to purchase a few real estate books and look for your own cash investors. You will have a better chance doing this on your own that paying an excessive amount of $$ and hoping to see some type of reward. Dont you just love these pyramid schemes? I guess everyone has to make a living these days. How do these people sleep at night?
Add'l $20,000 plus investment
Attended seminar today in Vero Beach, Fl Did not buy anything. Wanted to come home and do review on this company before moving forward.
I am a realtor and most of what they said about real estate is true.However, the financing part is what I am puzzled about. 1% interest rate to borrow their money and a small closing cost. If I have to spend $2000 for this course, assuming I did not get the reimbursement, I can use up to $500,000 per transaction at 1% and make money, then its worth it. WHERE IS THE CATCH! Well they never mention the additional $20,000 plus. Can someone who has attended the 3 days of seminar fill me in. Is there additional deposit?
