Beware of Loral Langemeier’s Hidden Fees

Today’s post is about Loral Langemeier’s series of books titled the Millionaire Maker. Lori writes…

Our experience with the Loral Langemeier organization has not been good.

Listening the radio ad one day, I decided to take a chance on the book, for which a fee was charged. I got the book and my husband read it through quickly.

We were soon contacted by a person from this organization, attempting to upsell us on a mentoring program. Neither of us recalls what the price for this mentoring was going to be but we do remember that it was large enough to give us a warning signal to clearly rethink the whole process.

We discussed it and decided against it. However, we were contacted again by their organization and this time it was a bit harder selling process. It moved on to an insulting phase which included a rather snide remark on the order of “Well, you’re this old and you haven’t reached the wealth you want. What makes you think you can get there without this program?”

Needless to say, that kind of remark really wasn’t a good selling technique and we were very clear about our “No, Thanks” reply.

But it’s not over yet! We were both under the belief that this would cancel all future obligations to the Loral Langemeier organization. Wrong, so wrong.

I discovered a charge on my account for $67.00, made a few days ago by this organization. I called to get that reversed and was told that it could not be done. I was told this was for an online service that was free for the first 30 days but subsequently, a monthly charge would be incurred if not cancelled in advance. I told the story of the contact we’d had and that we believed everything had been cancelled as a result of that conversation. Oh, no, that’s a completely different department.

We decided to call back and speak to a supervisor, which we did. His name was Lance. Lance advised us that it was company policy to never reverse this charge for any reason. Well, I suggested that I was only 10 days into the new 30 day period and therefore, it appeared that some resolution could be reached. He assured me that it could not be done. I then asked him to confirm that the first individual we spoke to this morning had in fact, cancelled the service. He advised me that it had not been cancelled. Apparently, I just never used the magic phrase “cancel this forever”.

Is the mentoring and the program any good? I can’t say, I never got into it far enough except to learn their one key thing is to find things you are already doing for free and then start charging people for it. The motto is — don’t be afraid to ask for the money–.

Well, I can assure they are not afraid to get the money and they don’t do refunds. Poor business practice for the long term, we believe.

Their sales technique is irritating and their refund policy is poor.

I responded to this initial emailing telling Lori to fight for her money! I suggested she talked to her bank or credit card company to see if they could reverse the transaction via a chargeback. I also told her to call back and threaten to get the state Attorney General involved as usually the threat alone is enough to make companies cave into refunds. Lori was nice enough to respond with this email.

Thanks so much for the feedback Steve! Yes, that’s the first thing I did is talk to my bank. I filled out the paperwork and sent it to them this afternoon.

I have spent the past hour or so finding similar complaints all over the internet AND posting them on Twitter; next up is Facebook; after that, every other social media site I belong to. I found one guy who posted his complaint on January 9, 2010 and it is almost identical to mine (except they charged him LESS!) and includes his opinion that when he said no to the consulting work that he was cancelled from all obligations, just like us.

I hadn’t thought about the State’s attorney general – Great Idea!!! How about both states – theirs AND mine!

Also, a very interesting thing I noted was many of the pages I searched for and followed, stated they had a page about Loral Langemeier but when I got to their site, the specific page was there but NO WORDS! Almost as though they were threatened or muzzled to take down the page…..?

Thanks for posting my experience for all to see! For some reason I can’t into this afternoon to even read what others have said, much less post my own report. But I did go to and post it there.

Here’s my list of complaints I found and posted on Twitter: (this is especially rich with complaints about Loral Langemeier!!)

I have trouble understanding how companies like these are still allowed to operate. What kind of policy is “no refunds allowed, ever?” It just doesn’t make sense especially considering the fees are not listed upfront.

I’ve asked Lori to keep us up to date as she fights to get her money back. I’ll be sure to fill you guys in as soon as I hear from her. Until then, have you had a run in with Loral Langemeier or the Millionaire Maker books? Were you able to get a refund? Let me know!

The BEST Way to Make Money Online EVER?

We've reviewed 105 different programs and we've found one program gives our readers the best chance at making real money online. Click here to see what program we recommend most.


  1. Well here am update…. Scheduled call not received, emails not received. I had told them I no longer use credit cards and that all my properties were tired up in divorce, which they are. Needless to say I’m not what they’re interested in. Sad that someone could be so evil and take the last savings or someone’s retirement and leave them without anything.

  2. I was duped into buying her program back in 2008, and I spent $3200 on two useless seminars that didn’t do anything for me at all. I think these seminars are simply to help the direct marketing/ pyramid scheme companies out there to prey on the weaknesses of those who are lost and who honestly want to learn about building wealth. The sales pitch over the phone was NOTHING like what the seminars were about. Each seminar is designed to simply sell you more. None of the promised results were delivered, and I left each seminar more confused than before, without any information that I could apply to the real world. This was the biggest financial mistake ever, and I wish there was a way to get my money back. It’s probably unlikely, since it was so many years ago. I tried to get part of my money back before the second seminar, but they wouldn’t let me. I think we should start a class action lawsuit against this fraud.

  3. I have had contact with them, this morning actually. With all of the crazy that my ex had turned my life into I think I actually scared them. There was a call scheduled for tomorrow, was supposed to get an email but have yet to receive it. I think I may be their pariah…lol.

  4. We attended the 3 days to cash workshop which was very valuable and I even won at that event. We went on to make arrangements to go onto the “Big Table” this is where they want you to divulge all of your financial status so they know how much they can bilk you out of.

    We had put down $6000.00 to go onto the “Big Table” but in the interim of waiting for the event we had a family emergency. I called and requested 50% of our funds back and wanted to cancel the “Big Table” as we were having a family medical emergency. I was told by Loral’s staff, “there are no refunds after 72 hours and that if I truly loved my family member I would pay the rest and go on to “Big Table” so I could afford for someone else to care for my loved one.”

    I tried multiple times to resolve this, but did not get any sort of refund. Nor do I have a credit for any services (not that I would align my values with such a predator)

    We had gained clients from the 3 Day event as well as had friends that had signed up for her workshops. Many lost a lot of money and I personally witnessed them sell business development programs to people who had no business acumen nor the emotional intelligence to build a leadership team that would assist them with a sustainable business model.

    It has been 4 years now since I attended her workshop, I still use many of the tools I learned there, but work in an ethical manner. I am grateful for the experience, there is a great deal of knowledge to shared and it would be great if those of us who were bilked out of funds came together to create an ethical model that would honorably assist those seeking to branch out and build business.

  5. Loral Langemeier’s courses, with a joke of a so-called mentor, ruined my life. All that passion and ambition I had, which was immense, was completely slaughtered. We lost $11,000 (a drop in the bucket compared to higher amounts others lost – but a HUGE deal to us) and we had no recourse but to file bankruptcy. Wow. I can’t believe this is still allowed to continue, even with others warning everybody online. Wonder if Loral herself even has any clue about how many people’s lives she (via her program) has devastated? WHY CAN’T THIS WOMAN AND THIS SCAM BE STOPPED? ARE THE POWERS THAT BE IN AMERICA STUPID?? It’s STILL going on, after YEARS?? Unbelievable.

  6. Now in the UK and being promoted by Emma Sargent & Tim Fearon of The Extraordinary Coaching Company.

    I received an email from them ‘gushing’ about how they ‘have signed a partner agreement with Loral Langemeier, CEO of Live Out Loud, making us her only UK partners.’

    Having never heard of Loral I did some research and found this site, based on the comments here I think I have had a lucky escape, sorry to hear how people have lost so much.

    Thank you for the warnings.

  7. Wow, thank you for your replies. I am looking for a mentor to help me establish passive income systems. I filled out an application for Laurel Langmeyer’s 100K institute and was told I would be contacted to see if I “qualify” for this program. So, after a couple of days of phone tag, we spoke today. The guy asked all of these personal questions about my finances including how much money I have on my credit card. I thought that was completely odd based on how they advertised the 100K program. I explained that I do not use credit much but if they have a matermind program and using credit to build wealth is needed, I can get credit. He then asked my credit score and all kind of stuff. He kept saying “we are selective about who we work with and there are only a few spots. We only take 30 people in this program and we need action takers. If you qualify are you ready to start working towards your goals today? If you got your questions answered will you join the program today?” I explained that I know nothing about “the program” I simply filled out an application online. Was “the program” meetings, phone calls, online classes, in person classes where I travel, or what? He never even mentioned real estate or any kind of investing, I just saw that online. I explained that it is October and I am looking for a mastermind group to begin in January. He said ‘oh, you’re not serious.’ I said ‘it is clear you are a salesperson and can only offer sales jargon, I get it. But, is there a way that I can find out about what the 100K club is and what I need to commit to. He said: well, but you said you’re not ready to get started even if we tell you so maybe we’ll call you back in 6 months to see if you’re ready to take action. Hmmmm….totally weird. Then I found THIS SITE. It confirms the vibe I got. “The Club” doesn’t exist and is not limited to 30 people. It is just a sales gimmick to sell do it yourself at home products designed to fail while they collect money from you and blame you. I am not out of any money, but they would not even tell me how much money it was until after I committed to “take action.” Then they would tell me about the club I committed to and “start tomorrow.” Although they did not directly insult me, I could see the set up questions that would lead to insults if you did have bumb in the road. They totally seemed to have no ethics.

  8. Scammed Big Time says:

    Please read and hear what the others before me have said. It is all true and I have lost thousands at a time in my life when it is time to retire. Up sells! Self stroking! Pay more and more, for nothing. No delivery…they just take money, more and more of it. Ashamed I’ve been duped into this scam. Have so much debt because of this. Just want to cry…but that won’t help much. RUN! Loral Langemeier, Premier Mentoring and all the rest of the folks she has business alliances with will take your money and you will feel like a worthless piece of crap. I can only blame MYSELF for being so STUPID to buy into this thinking my life can be different, better, as I was sold. The reality is I have never been so stressed out in all of my life after getting into this charade. This may be okay for some people but they really haven’t done much for me except create an enormous amount of debt. I only hope I can find a way out of all of this and find some relief. Don’t like to think that I have to work my ass off for the rest of my life to get out of the debt I incurred with this company and it’s affiliates. Don’t like to recognize my stupidity of buying the smooth, sleek, sales pitches I bought. Was at a weak point in my life when I got into this 2 years ago and always hoping it will get better. If it does, I will write and let you know. But it hasn’t. Just more despair on top of major debt causing more despair. Hopefully if there is a next life for me, I will never make this kind of mistake again. Fool I am. Don’t be a fool. Run! And if you don’t run, get the fine print on what you are buying and recognize that you are not getting what you paid for so protect yourself as they do and have a way out. Sorry Loral. I had hoped for so much more than the pile of crap I now find myself in. I’m in for the class action! But the depression I have rules all and I don’t really much care anymore. Just take 50k out of the bank, if you have it, and burn it in the fireplace. Warm your hands and enjoy the fire. That’s pretty much the result I’ve had. And while she sits as a millionaire with my money, I get to either work extra jobs for the rest of my life or declare bankruptcy to leave this life debt free and not create a burden for my family. :-(( Very sad indeed.

  9. I agree, where are the honest mentors that we used to have? People like Loral deserve to be behind bars. My friend did the Big Table program which had personal coaching by Loral, but she never actually picked up the phone and intentionally missed meetings. In the world of internet marketing, we call this a ‘blackhat’ approach, where you not completely honest. Shocking!

  10. Steve Garcia says:

    Went to the Austin Shark Made Millionaires event today. Total scam. High pressure sales, never divulging what you actually get on the course and preying on weak individuals. This should be illegal.

  11. I purchased the $10,000 Loral’s Big Table, which is her “elite” mentoring program. It turned out to be a total “upsell” scam, where she gets people and organizations that she is “in bed with” to sell you their services (which she gets a cut of). Not only that, every investment I made through the people who pitched their goods went belly up, one turned out to be a “ponzy” scheme (I know dozens of people who got scammed from that scheme) Just look up “Lupe Valencia Ponzy” and you’ll see the story behind that. You don’t see mention of Loral Langmeyer in that story, but Lupe used Loral’s Big Table to find her victims. I lost over $50,000 and I know others who lost all of their savings. I don’t get a sense that Loral is out to intentionally scam anyone, I get a sense that she just doesn’t care about the people who sign up for her mentoring programs. She hides behind the phrase “Do your own due diligence”, but does little to teach you how to do that. She just doesn’t care about the people who entrust their money to her mentorship, the result is no different than if she intentionally scammed them out of their money. Run from this organization, where are the good mentors?

  12. I was just listening to a free webinar on the 7 steps to be a millionaire, and I had to shut it off, I couldn’t stand it anymore. she is simply reading from a book, and not even very well I might add! I had to wait for a countdown to sit in on the webinar at a specific time, just to hear someone read??!!

  13. I’m embarrassed to admit that I bought into Loral’s program. I do have a business but have not made money from it and as I encountered each step I payed more and then more and then more and will have to claim bankruptcy at age 70!!! I had an excellent credit score all my life until I bought into their deceptive program in February of 2011. Something needs to be done. How about a class action lawsuit?

  14. I actually went to her seminar in Johannesburg yesterday night just to check out as I normally do not believe in people who want you to pay them for making you rich. Initially in the seminar she sounded impressive but the minute she spoke of the 3 days programme and the amounts you have to pay – most of us in the room lost interest. The figure was too high anyway for most people and raised eyebrows. I also did not hear anything so unique except reinforcing what I know since I already have a business. there are a few points that I noted are worth it that I can apply myself. The majority of people left immediately after her presentation but a few signed up for the 3 day workshop in Nov. After reading this, I know my instincts were correct as I felt she is just one those people who make money out of others. Thanks everyone for the reviews/comments

  15. Loral has also moved her focus to South Africa. I heard her on one of the local stations when I was driving back from work this afternoon. She has also created a local website which is blank when you go into it except for a line where thy ask you for your name and email address. Thanks for the info on this scam.

  16. Sam Pittsburgh says:

    Just read the ‘Millionaire Maker’ bought for a dime at the library used Book sale….I thought her approach to her clients was unique…..

    But I NEVER thought I would see the way it really works from all of these comments…

    I never commit my credit card to enterprises like this… I did once to Sirius radio and tried to cancel and got stuck for $60 on my Discover card.. The fee was in the fine print and Discover would not let me slide…

    A good tip here was the fellow who said CANCEL the credit card… Ill remover that… I am active on calling the State’s Attorney General & reviewing all charges monthly to my credit card…

    I just never commit thousands to a program or commit monthly fees unless I have money to lose…

  17. About a two years ago, I ran into problems getting them to cancel, but thought I finally had done it. Then came the credit card bill. American Express immediately reversed the charge when I sent them the info, maybe they have dealt with this group before. Then I get the Dec e-mail saying I have been named a scholarship winner. I have the same other names as above, but mine was in the third position. I wonder how many workers answer to the name of Chad when people call in. I was tempted to call just to mess with them.

  18. Leonie Cahill says:

    Tragically, she now seems to have shifted her operation to Australia, and has teamed up with the wife of one of our revered sportsmen/cricketers. He is Glenn McGrath; she is Sara Leonardi McGrath. I hope they have done their research.

  19. at least I won something. says:

    I bought the book, read it and dismissed it. Then I recieved the email that I won something. didn’t call. but I do remember the shotty sales pitch from the “polyester soft shoe”. I didn’t have that much “scratch” any way.

  20. THANK YOU to everyone who has shared their experiences. I bought a second hand book about another subject & found Loral’s Fast Path to Cash cd inside. While I thought the ideas presented were not ground breakers, they seemed helpful & honest. They did mention getting the listeners connected to her coi.celors, but I assumed it was recorded at some event & didn’t think about IR too deeply. So today I thought I’d follow up to see what books she may have written. Wow. I would not have signed up for the programs because I have neither the time nor the cash. But if I would have purchased a book obviously I woyld have been subjected to unauthorized charges & harassing sales calls. So I feel badly for the people who have experienced these issues,but thank you for keeping othrs from being sucked in. Shame on Moral Langemeier. BTW on the cd she mentions “her councelors” so she is not upfront about the outsourcing.

  21. First Name Here says:

    None of those were me, yet I also received the same email on Dec 19, 2012 12:48 AM with those same 4 other names listed and mine in the middle. I have called and was told that I need to put up an initial fee of $500 to start the Scholarship program. I told them I would call them back in a few days. They then gave me a different 800 number to call.

  22. By any chance was one of these you?

    If not I got the same email on 12/18/2012 at 11:49PM

    Glad I researched it because I almost called.

  23. I just received this email today from this address, “Loral Langemeier” < (which already sounds suspicious) and became very skeptical when I read it. I deleted the names, mine was directly in the middle and I'm sure the others were made up. And, it comes from Premier Mentoring in Utah, the contract company she uses like someone pointed out above.
    I, too, ordered the book three years ago after hearing her on the radio, and had a hard time canceling, but luckily didn't get charged. I guess they still have my email address. I was also very surprised to see she was on Hay House. I've gone to several Hay House events and studied with some other Hay House authors who are legitimate. I will be emailing Hay House about this.
    I will definitely not be calling this number now thanks to all the other postings. I am curious what they would say, BUT, I don't even want them knowing I received their email!

  24. name required says:

    She and her business partners stole approximately $50,000 from me. Scam. I will never see the money because they know how to protect their assets.

  25. DON’T give your money to Loral Langemeier. You will lose it. I did. LOTS!

  26. My wife and I just got back from a “3 days to cash” seminar in Chicago. Let me just say it is filled with heavy upsell techniques. Always trying to get you to sign up for their “next level”. Which they did indeed get about 8 people to sign up for at $14,000 each. They guarantee you will make cash at the seminar and amazingly everyone did.. But the reality is you are selling to other participants at the seminar. You wind up trading your $25 service for someone elses $25 service and then they claim you made money. Obviously you didn’t because you still have nothing and all you really did was trade services for free.

    They really push that you need a team around you and I believe there is some value in who you know but to be honest I think they just want your money and more opportunities to charge you on an ongoing basis.

    They also have a couple of people that constantly walk the room and they are looking to see what you are doing and say they want to make sure you on the right path. While that could be true it looks more like they are trying to figure out which people could sign up for more money.

  27. Well I have read what u all have to say and the simple solution which my acct person with my bank told me is to report of stolen or lost credit card.with that it puts an end to any charges to that card acct. Hope this will and had helped someone otherwise there would be no end to their scam on your acct. i read read all this because i ordered the free book today and after reading comments i called my bank and this is what they told me to do immediately within few days.thanks

  28. Carol Horton says:

    First I am SO disheartened to hear that Loral Langemeier is on Hay House of all places! I think it’s important for all of us to figure out where we first heard of Loral Langemeier and go back to the radio stations and tell them to get her off the air waves. We owe that to our communities at very least!
    I bought into a $12,000.00 program and thank God I listened to my inner instincts that were screaming at me the next day because I only had one more day to use my right of refusal!
    I don’t need to repeat my story because it’s repeated over and over in all of the postings above but what I do want to mention which I haven’t seen on any postings here or elsewhere that I have discovered by literally spending days researching this company is this: Loral Langemeier contracts out to another company called PREMIER MENTORING they are out of Utah and they represent a lot of “Money Making” companies and organizations. They use their own coaches who are NOT mentored by or taught by any of the speakers they represent. They represent Loral Langemeier, Robert Allen, Michael Parness Trend Trading, Dani Johnson, CEO space, and Todd Dotson if you go onto Premier you will find all of these speakers/organizations showcased on their homepage. Premier Mentoring deals with all clients who call in on a TV add or radio show, they jack up all of the prices so that they can make a profit and also pay the speake. Their sales crew both male and female is slick, smart and know how to get into your desires and finally your wallet. Now I did speak with a guy named Don Duncan who was directly affiliated with and works directly with Langemeier, he seemed nice, not as slick as Premier but as I see it, no company or speaker who had an ounce of integrity would EVER use an outsourced company like Premier to represent them on any level, this company is robbing everyone that passes through them. All your complaints are due to PREMIER MENTORING’s very shady business practices and the creepy part is that most of you have no idea that it’s an outsourced company your giving your money away to. Is it legal? Absolutely not but their loop hole is that at some point in the radio or TV ad they do mention, very quickly, that it’s an outsourced company. If you didn’t hear it, they consider it YOUR problem. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that Langemeier isn’t a snake in the grass nor am I defending her in anyway, I just want you all to know that she is outsourcing and obviously doesn’t care what the outsourced company is doing. And here’s the weird part, if you go onto the better business site PREMIER MENTORING has outstanding reviews. But of course they do since no one knows that they are dealing with this outsourced company in the first place. So if you try to throw a lawsuit at any of these speakers it goes into arbitration because they are protected since they use outsourced companies. The scam is that PREMIER MENTORING will look like, act like, and smell like whomever speaker you called in about. So how did I find out about PREMIER MENTORING? I got my first coaching session which I made sure to set up prior to my 3 days of right to refusal and asked the coach to email me so I had his email address, when I got the email I notice that it was John@ PREMIER and I just so happened to look it up.
    So here is the take away from all of this because it’s all our responsibility to stop pointing fingers and placing blame for our own mistake of calling in the first place. I’m the bone head for getting myself sucked in for $12,000! What the hell was I thinking anyway?!?!?!
    My Take Away –
    • If you call in expecting some service and get a slick salesman who is convincing you to buy into something and that wasn’t the intention of the call and you feel yourself being pulled, don’t be polite just hang up. And after you hang up call customer service and get a refund if you purchased anything. You have to ask yourself why you feel the need to be polite with someone who is trying to separate you from your money and that wasn’t the intention of the call in the first place!
    • ALWAYS, ALWAYS get a confirmation number for the refund, DO NOT hang up the phone until you have that confirmation number, the rep’s name doesn’t matter ‘cause they won’t give you their last name and that person is NOT a confirmation number so it’s not going to do you any good anyway.
    • Always call the bank and dispute the charge and give them the confirmation number. If the bank tells you that you need to wait 3 days then have them put a red flag on the charge as a possible scam. They will accommodate that, you are a client and you give them your money.
    • Follow up with your bank after a week. I can’t stress that enough, my bank told me that I had a pending charge that will automatically charge my account in 30 days, when I called Langemeier/ PREMIER MENTORING they told me it was dropped and I called BS and made them give me another confirmation number then canceled my card.
    • If you signed up for a 30 day trial with a pending monthly payment, cancel your credit card cause it’s more likely than not that it will show up and pay out at least once. That’s how they make the bulk of their money, from people who don’t follow through and assume it’s taken care of. Even if it’s one payment of $40, $50, $60, if you times that by all the people out there that just cuts it as a loss, your talking millions of dollars a day that this company is making money off the be backs of people.
    • Find out if the company you’re dealing with is really the company you think you’re dealing with. If it’s outsourced they will convince you that they are no even if it’s only affiliated. Get them to send you an email confirming something, if it’s an outsourced company you’ll see it on that person’s personal return email address if it’s another company or not. Even on the spam mail if you look carefully you can see if it’s an outsourced company. This is what my spam looked like: On Behalf Of: “Loral Langemeier” < Please not the and the “On Behalf Of” and “members @” it’s all outsourced and you can’t touch the speaker/organization if you get ripped off.
    • Finally, I’ll never do anything like this again. If it’s too good to be true…..It always, always is and I’m tired of learning this same lesson over and over again.
    I hope this helps, and I’m not calling anyone a bone head but myself! Love and light to all of you :0)

  29. Luckily, I had had a similar experience with another company (which actually did give me a refund luckily) so I knew going in what questions to ask. When I was confident that they would try to pull this 30 day free trial scam on me, I cancelled while on the phone getting my free book. End result, free book and no sign up. :)

  30. Charlotte says:

    Wow! Thank you for sharing everyone. I have been listening to Loral Langemeier on Hayhouse Radio and something didn’t seem quite right. Her “coaching” method is so obviously a pitch. I have yet to hear her offer tangible or tailored advice. She is quick to rush callers off the line when it is clear they aren’t likely to invest in her product. It’s not surprising to hear that her staff has been trained to inslut anyone who choses against their product as if there is only one way to wealth and as if our purpose in life is to get rich. I hope people continue to speak out and spread the word about these ego-driven and unethical tactics.

    I have the same problem just recently. The book was never open still in the packaged and I never created an account on the website with the password that was sent to me.
    I just realized I can’t afford and don’t have time because i was so much under stressed.
    I tried calling to cancel for the first time but I got answering machine. I called again and I was a week after my 30 days trial so they charged me 72.16 which in their email they stated after 30 days I will be charged $ 67.00.
    So just liked everyone here they don’t give refund at all and these people were even rude and don’t care less.

    Please help. I would really like to suggest making a complaint to 7 On you Side.

    Thank you very much and please I would really like to get my money back.
    I appreciate your all your help.

  32. Unless you have thousands of dollars to flush down the toilet, PLEASE do NOT have anything to do with this evil, creepy empire!

    The book tells of Loral meeting individually with people to lay out a customized action plan to reorganize their finances and get a money machine going. So when I spoke to them after reading it, I thought it would help me, since I really needed the guidance, not having a good mentor in my life.

    This is akin to Bernie Madoff. Pretending to help people, but in the end they’re all pulling a bloody knife out of their backs. What I got instead is an endless barrage of soliciting phone calls, boy did I start to cringe every time they called! No audience with Loral, just an endless line smooth talking, high pressure telemarketers.

    More than $6000 for “coaching” (which means there is a phone number you’re supposed to call, and you talk to a lackey who doesn’t tell you anything you didn’t already know), then $3690 for a multi-entity LLC, (or $1890 for one), then $2995 for tax advisors, then $995 for a business credit builder.

    And each time you call them, they have this creepy caller ID that tells them exactly who you are and every interaction you’ve had with them!

    Yes, I feel like an idiot for giving them my hard earned money, but Loral has some big, high profile names endorsing her. The ONLY person Loral is making a millionaire is Loral! They find out exactly how much you have and then they systematically bleed you dry! This should be illegal…

  33. I want to thank all of you so much. I heard Ms. Langermeyr’s sales pitch on the radio and was pulled in by the thought of changing my life and my family’s life for the better. I dialed the 1-800 number and immediatly hung up, as something told me I better research this first. Low and behold, I found this website. All of your stories saved my family $$$ we don’t have. Thank you!

    I am SO ANGRY!!!!

    I am late into this. This morning I looked at a credit card statement because I wanted to pay off the card. I don’t really look at this account often because I don’t really use it; just autopay each month at this point. I found some charges for Loral Langemeier, $67.00 and $29.95. WHAT THE HECK??? Shoot, I couldn’t even remember who they were or what I had charged originally.

    I went online to find out more about who the heck Loral Langemeier was and what was I thinking. Oh yeah….Millionaire Maker. I got the book in August, paid the $9.95 for shipping (another smart move) and a couple of weeks later got a call from the snottiest 20-something salesperson I have every spoken to in my life. He insulted me because obviously I was in my 40’s and still dumb enough to rely upon 401Ks and Deferred Comp plans and obviously if I had any ambition I would have started doing something about my retirement before now.

    Then he proceeded to ask me what I wanted to do, what I didn’t even know what he meant. He said something about how they can find everyday things that people do but with their “special mentoring” can make bazillions but if I’m not willing to act ‘right now’ than obviously I’m not ready and I could just plan on staying on the same dumb track I was on now. Unbelievable.

    I actually got so irritated with him that I asked him what kind of a stupid sales policy this was; to insult everyone of their potential customers after a one minute conversation where it was clear they had no idea what they were talking about.

    I’ve been involved in International Sales & Marketing for years and now in the Transportation business at a level where some level of brain power is required.

    I told him no, I wasn’t interested, you have no idea what you’re talking about, I had no interest in working with such rude people anyway. He kept coming at and I kept getting more surprised at how rude he was. Finally, I hung up on him!

    I have never done that before! When I get sales calls I am usually polite and respectful because I know what it’s like to be on the other side.

    Now I am on a rampage. I called the bank and they can’t help me until after I talk to LL. And I will be next week. They will get a very Merry Christmas from me.

    After that first $9.95 in August, they have charged me $96.95/month ($67.00 +$29.95) for four months. I am now out $387!!

    I will be demanding my refund, I will allege fraud to my State Attorney General’s office, the Attorney General for the state they operate in, I will call the radio station from which I heard the original commercial, and I will look at getting ad space on the very same radio station to warn the rest of the people about this fraud. These people are frauds. This will not happen to me again!

    Yeah, I can sure see how they make their millions and the folks like me still rely on 401Ks. It’s a lot easier to make money when you’re lying, cheating, and stealing.

    Grrrr I AM SO MAD!!!

  35. I was actually able to get them to say they will refund the $67 in 3-5 days by saying I would just cancel with the bank. They had a digital recording but I never agreed to it as these things can be easily manipulated. Class action, anyone?

  36. I just had the same thing to me!!! I ordered the program and before the 30 days was up called to cancel. Evan offered to let me have the program for $98 for life and said I had a few more days to decide on that and call back if I wanted it. I thought I had cancelled the $67 per month program, and we decided we didn’t want the lifetime offer so I didn’t call back. I just now discovered a $67 charge from them in Aug. so called my credit card company to dispute the charge .That’s when I learned that I had been charged in July and for Sept. already as well!!! for a total of $201!!!!!!!!!!!
    I also was told by the supervisor I spoke to, Amanda, that a refund was impossible. When I said I had cancelled she asked for my cancellation #, which I don’t have and don’t know if I got one. Her comment was that everyone knows that if you don’t get a cancellation number–then it wasn’t cancelled!!!!!! I went on to explain that I thought I had cancelled and that the other lifetime offer was separate and independent from my first offer of $67 per month. But I got no where!!!
    They went ahead and started charging me every month knowing that I had called to cancel and also knowing that I didn’t want the lifetime offer either!!!!

  37. So glad I read this … there are many people who mentor for free, and consider it a calling and a service issue to others … I’ve had and share it with others, and we all teach each other. Many successful people thrive on teaching others just out of goodness. There are some great free webinars out there and lots of great sites (search Jim Rohn and watch his clips on youtube – FREE). Out of respect for those who’ve felt so scammed, I would never leave specifics. Just know that if someone’s heart is in the right place and trust is important, they will gladly help you just to help you. May something great happen to everyone today! For those who’ve not considered it before, attend a church and rethink prosperity – it is amazing what just comes to you from that!

  38. thanks for the information , the mailing i got from her is going where it belongs in the trash, too bad we can’t throw her there !

    Langermeyr is worse than a timeshare, don’t get involved.

  40. Loral Langermeyr tried to get me to “invest” using information they aggressively queried me for. Had I been more gullible, I might have lost my childrens entire trust/college fund. The just right amount to “Tailor” make me a millionaire!
    These are ruthless in their plot to get your money!

  41. If you have any subscriptions through paypal, you can manually cancel it from your account settings. In other words, you don’t even have to call in or email to cancel. Never tried Wealthy Affiliates but if they use paypal as payment, you have all of the control, not them. Sorry to say but the fault is on you, although the company should be able to pay you back.

  42. oh i have a comment and its about WealthyAffiliate programe
