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.”

DISHONEST AND WASTE OF TIME FOR MOST!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me start by saying the program and education is probably great, now, having said that, I attended the free seminar "with Scott Yancey" in October 2014 in Albany, NY. First of all, Scott was not there, it was some business partner of his. Then he talks a great game and had me and everyone else in the room convinced, by saying, that for $2000 you get access to $750,000 for each flip you acquire, also, proof of that for the bank so there is no waiting time to show you have the money and a year of assistance. They take a small fee once the flip is complete. At this point he has people running back to sign up, then he says "Well, if you are someone that struggling right now we can help you too and work something out for payment and to go back and see the guys behind the table." When I got back there, they said all you need is $1000 today and honestly I don't even remember the rest of that deal because I stopped listening as I did not have that either. Now, I expect nothing for free of course but I just didn't have that much up front as I am a single mom (NOT A WELFARE RECIPIENT! as so many on here like to judge) just struggling at the moment. I was not upset by this, I simply said to myself this was my starting point. I will save the $2000 and come back to another seminar and go from there. I have been non stop watching his show Flipping Vegas and getting excited that things might actually be ok and then I hop online and am looking at the scam reports "just incase" and boy am I glad I did because I do not have thousands more to pour into this as you do not find that out until you have paid the $2000 and attend the 3 day course where you get a special code you can put into the website and find out the ACTUAL cost of getting what you were told you were getting for $2000. My heart sunk!!! I loved these 2 on the show. I really thought for once somebody out there making money was being straight up and honest. SHAME on everyone involved in this scam. I will not watch the show anymore and I will spread the word to anyone looking to get involved in this. Basically you already have to have (from what I'm reading on here) about $200,000 to invest first. Well, knowing that ahead of time would've saved me and a lot of other people the heartache and trouble. Again, if you have that kind of money go for it, I'm sure you will be a millionaire in no time but for the rest of us who thought this was a shot to join the ranks, well all I can say is spend your $2000 on something else.
Shame on Scoot and Amy and Shame on A&E
I just got back from the FREE introduction class and my first impression was " they will try to sell", ok......but besides trying to sell a $2,000 course they also do NOT tell you that after you buy the $2,000 3 days course , you will have to buy another course to get educated enough to start to invest and get access to Scott's network and finances. This is NOT right. They made people believe that the whole investment will be just $2,000 and is not, the investment is much higher , more than $30,000.They should tell up front how much money is required to finish the education and start to make money. I do NOT recommend this program, is NOT honest.
walking through a deal
Hey Andrew don't know what city you attended but The 3 day Workshop $1997 was NEVER promised to be multiple speakers?? I did attend and disagree. MY Trainer walked us through the process of finding deals and how to use the resources to analyze and work the numbers to make multiple offers. I have since used customer service which has been great and very responsive to help with me first deal. I did buy into the Boots on the Ground and the Software which has been a God Send and saved me so much TIME. MY suggestion is you call and see if you get to another 3 day. The company stands behind the quality of their education. I have referred them to 2 of my friends in Denver who also signed up and are on their way to the Summit next month.
BEWARE!!! -- Yancey real estate is a "legal" scam
The 3-day seminar is a scam in itself.
They promise multiple speakers, lectures AND workshops, show you how to do real estate transactions, etc.
But we got ONE speaker, NO workshops, and "concepts" of real estate transactions - not even a walk-through of a transaction from beginning to end.
The entire 3 days is a gradual buildup and focus on upselling people on 'advanced education' ... of course you feel like you need more education, because they did NOT provide you with any of the promised education during those 3 days!!!
I tried to dispute with the credit card company, but because all of the details about what to expect during those 3 days, are in the supporting documentation they give you, and NOT in the actual contract, the cc company told me they are unable to support denying the charge.
This company (actually an array of companies and sub-companies, etc.) is all about legal loopholes in EVERYTHING they do, so once you sign, if you don't legally jump through hoops within the 3 day cancellation policy, you are stuck!
I purchased the Diamond Tuition package from Scott Yancey. I also bought Rentals from their Buying Summit. I have invested a ton of money in their organization. The Rentals were suppose to have renters in them with property management in place. Not only did they have neither in some cases, but one house the renter was being Evicted before I even purchased. Scott Yancey in person at the Buying Summit gave his word they stand behind their rentals and would take back anything like I have listed here. To this day, 2 of 4 rentals I bought are like this and they will not take them back. I agreed to buy one thing, but was sold another. I made a final decision to purchase after Scott Yancey made his speech at this Buying Summit, thinking he is really someone you can trust. This organization is the worst thing that has ever happened to my Family financially. TRUE STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
