Original Complaint against American Real Estate Idols published at Scamity.com on 14-Oct-14 says, verbatim –
If I could give this company ZERO STARS, I definitely would! | I was a Sales Rep for this "company" for less than 2 weeks before realizing that this is a complete SCAM. I only sold one area, but it was, unfortunately, to my own RE Agent. I have never been so embarrassed to have been involved with something as I am about this. Believe me, I can almost guarantee that you aren't getting a response for one of two reasons: either the rep is like me and quit immediately upon discovering that we too were duped by Michael Harris, or he/she is in on the scam and doesn't want to get caught. | I started with them back in the spring of 2014, got about 3-4 hours of telephone based training and then was sent out on preset appointments. I was told that this had been "test marketed" in three very specific areas of the country and "no one had used their guarantee". About a week and a half after beginning to run appointments, I was asked – more than once – for specifics regarding how many referrals the people in the "test" area had received. I called my manager who indicated that the managers had also been trying to get that information from Michael (or Rex, as we were told to call him). She told me I should call him directly and see if I could pin him down on it. I called and asked him for details on numbers and was told 'No one ever said there was test marketing done. This is an entirely new concept so no one knows how well it will do'. I reminded him of the conference call he insisted we all be on the previous Saturday morning where he had said exactly that. He claimed he had said no such thing. | I then called my manager back and asked if she had been on the Sat. AM call and whether or not she recalled the same comment I did. Her response was "That's EXACTLY what he said, why?" When I told her that he had just told me the exact opposite she was very upset. By the end of the day, she was no longer with the company. This was on a Friday & the only reason I "stayed" until the Monday was to get the paycheck I was owed. Michael even had the nerve to tell me not to cash the check because he was going to offer my customer a refund and if he took it, then I wouldn't "deserve" to be paid. I asked him why he was offering a refund if the whole company wasn't a huge scam, but he never replied. | To all RE Agents – as my title says, stay as FAR AWAY from this company (or any other name he might have come up with – Agents By City, perhaps?) as you possibly can and WARN other agents about them too!!!
