It came to me and my husband with a fake name of, “REAL ESTATE INVESTORS FOR LIFE”. A guy named Brandon Godfrey stated the above mentioned name as his company name. They provide coaching services to those who are interested to know more about Real Estate.
I and my husband had a talk with each other about it. We were already looking for some lessons in Real Estate, so we decided to sign up for it.
On looking upon their contract, we were promised online training, phone coaching and permission to seek financing for every property that we brought to them. The fees that we paid for it was $10000.
The first phase of this started with online coaching classes. Limitations involved in online coaching were purposely used against me and my husband. We were told how I and my husband would be joined by other people for the same purpose, as well as about the punctuality and particularity of the classes.
These promises were fake! None other than me and my husband used to show up for these classes. Punctuality should have been replaced by irregularity to make their fake promise, real.
My husband had signed up for their webinars. Their webinars were even worse than online classes. Going in the webinars meant non availability of coaches at the time when you needed them the most. Even if they would appear, the methodology used by them was so poor, that everything went completely abstruse. My husband complained about a coach named Cadance.
Cadance used to assist him with the phone calls. He found it difficult to grasp, so he questioned the teaching. Brand Godfrey, to whom we complaint about the coach, did not get back to us on this matter. His assistant emailed us, saying how the coach cannot be changed, for reasons best known to him.
Also in that particular course of time, the company came up with new list of requirements, which we really difficult for a property to fit in. The reason that we were given behind this decision was that, the company made some bad investments.
My question to them is; why should we suffer due to their bad decisions. Why should we be in search of a property that is so hard to find? And unless we find one such property, we wouldn’t even get the benefits.
This clearly convinced me, how the company was not working for their clients and extorting them. Not only did they want us to buy a new home, but also a buyer for the same!
When I started researching about this company online, I came up with strange results. Firstly, I couldn’t find it online with the name REAL ESTATE INVESTORS FOR LIFE! Upon researching further I came with a completely different name which was, LINCOLN INSTITUTE OF FINANCIAL EDUCATION/Empowerment.
This was the limit. I couldn’t bare anymore, this company is a complete fraud. The only reason to keep to different names, denotes their enticing character and nothing else. I warn others, not to fall for their trap and be aware of Lincoln Institute of Financial Empowerment which comes in the name of REAL ESTATE INVESTORS FOR LIFE!
