Additional Complaint Information

Consumer complaints for Dean Graziosi allege refund/exchange issues, delivery issues, and advertising issues. Consumer complaints allege this company offers an initial free seminar and subsequent workshops that require a fee (which is usually $1,000.00, $1997.00 to $10,000.00). Some consumers allege difficulty obtaining a refund when they ask for one if they change their mind. Other consumers allege that they ordered products from Dean Graziosi's websites and were either not satisfied with the materials or did not receive the materials at all.
