Original Complaint against Graham Stephan published at DirtyScam.com says, verbatim –
Graham Stephan claims himself to be a real estate agent. He runs a YouTube channel and a website by his name. Among the most people those are going to him dont realize is that he is using all these channels to reach up to him for his real business that is teaching how to raise money to others. And for doing this he says he has various plans and various courses based upon specialization. About all these fundamentals, detailed lies are mentioned on his website.One of my friends recommended him to my son. I was robbed by Graham Stephan of thousands of dollars in the name of making my son earn and learn real estate agents. When I asked my friend fr a little advice for my son in becoming a real estate agent, he was the one to tell me to take my son to him. Here is what he actually does. He always travels in a group and has people around him who praise him a lot. On his YouTube videos also youll find titles that praise his tactics and methods that make him earn very many dollars. All these videos are fake and have no strategy at all. I couldnt see all these videos before going to him but I suggest you see it and realize how he is just saying basic things which even a common man would know. He is no financial Guru and also not a real, real estate agent.The history of this person was told by many persons who have put up their videos on YouTube regarding the reality of Graham Stephan. He is actually a very bad real estate agent who has done nothing in his life but failed at everything that he did. Realizing that he cannot get any work because he does no hard work, he like bunch of other idiots in the name of teaching finance to other people and teaching how to use credit cards and how to invest, started making videos and calling himself influencer and after the growth of Internet, this thing widely spread.There are many videos online created by other individuals that talk about the myths created by this guy. I am trying to make a point here is how all this works in a circle and confuses a common person like me and my son. We were taken to Graham Stephan because of the video that was seen by my friend. And there we were asked to pay him $1000 for coaching him. We were promised all those fake promises that this person makes on his YouTube channel and we were also made to buy some books, for which he charges extra.And the end output was nothing at all. Its been months and my son hasnt learned anything at all from him. The fact is that after taking the money Graham Stephan teaches people to make YouTube videos like he does and asks more and more people to engage in it. But here is the truth, you feel it is cool and you are getting many likes and subscribers but at the end of the day, you are not earning anything! That is the point which most people forget. Some of his fans are so mad after him that they dont like you for saying the truth out. Maybe because they know that their money is gone and cannot come back.We were also advised by Graham Stephan to invest in real estate. Later we came to know that someone had conned him and he had promised him to pay him some dollars and that is why he was making us invest in his company. And he also has some odd percentage on any and every of the investment that he tells you to do. That is how he earns a profit and travels to places. We were told this by a person who had been conned by Graham Stephan and who actually did audits of Mr. Stephan. All his strategies to invest are basic ones that are nothing special and unknown to people like us. For example: in the course that my son did, he was told to save 40% of his pocket money and raise money by investing.How assured is this tactic? How common is this strategy? And how long has this been going on in the world? Do you need a special consultant to tell you this? If you invest your $1000 for gaining some sort of insight in investment and real estate, you need something core and substantial rather than sheer pieces of fake promises and returns that you dont know the timing of its turning out. Nothing of that sort was ever offered at the course to my son. After graduation, he was left jobless and not even employed.According to the contract signed by us, we were promised at least the certification of my son as a real estate agent. We werent even given that. Forget about the money and everything that he promises. If such a person is roaming and spreading fake knowledge about things freely, it is dangerous. He should be charged for spreading such fake knowledge about investment and real estate. My son was so depressed.Later we also got to know that people had also paid 10 times the amount that we had paid just to learn the same thing i.e. Nothing extra from what is being offered by his online YouTube chapters on investment, saving and real estate. Graham Stephan is a real con artist and no real estate agent. There are hardly any real estate deals which he might have ever managed to pull out. All he does every day is to plan to rob someone or the other by making more and more YouTube videos that have fake promises inside it, seeing which people can come to contact him and he can fly off with their money. Please beware of such a con artist around you.
