Accurate Review of the
John Beck Free & Clear Real Estate Course


John Beck obviously has been scamming unsuspecting desperate people. On April 20, 2012 the Federal Trade Commission won a court judgment against the marketers of three "real estate infomercial gurus" who bilked consumers out of more than $450 million. One of the three defendants (and losers) are the marketers behind the infomercials for "John Beck's Free & Clear Real Estate System." (The other two were "John Alexander's Real Estate Riches in 14 Days," and "Jeff Paul's Shortcuts to Internet Millions.")

Having lost to the FTC, Mr. Beck should have a ZERO star rating, but we give him one star because at least some of the basic information he provides is helpful in learning about tax liens.

But according to an INSIDE EDITION expose, "On his infomercial Beck boasts about how a big two story home was purchased at a tax foreclosure sale for only $521.56. However, INSIDE EDITION learned that it actually cost three times as much, which would still be an amazing deal. But what Beck didn't show is what the home really looked like when it was purchased. It was completely dilapidated and took ten years and more than $100,000 for the current owner to make it look as good as it did in the infomercial." And Butch Freeman, Treasurer of Oklahoma County OK said, "that not one of the homes featured in the infomercial has sold for the price John Beck has quoted them at."

That says it all - it certainly spells SCAM.

John Beck was affiliated with "Mentoring of America", a company alleged to drain bank accounts for phony, worthless mentoring. Such things speak loudly.

The Better Business Bureau gives John Beck a solid "F". The complaints are numerous and varied, all pointing to a scam. Many complaints involved a sneaky $39/month charge to the credit card each and every month. Customers were not made clearly aware that buying his teaser at $39 was also signing them up for recurring billing. Deception is always a sign of a scam.

Of all the courses reviewed, John Beck's is among the very worst, and we would not recommend it to our worst enemy.
