Sam Ovens Review

S

First I want to say how embarrassed I am that I got taken by these types of people. I had just | lost my IT job when I got an invite to a consulting webinar from Sam Ovens. It seemed to be a | great fit for my field and I had the experience necessary to technically consult already. | Seemed like a slam dunk… | I watched the ~90 minute webinar where every promise under the sun is made. “110% money back | guarantee”, “$2000/month client in the first 30 days or your money back…”, “anyone can do | this if they follow my steps”, etc. It was stated over and over again how ironclad their | guarantee was. I signed up for the monthly installment plan after confirming via webinar-chat | with their associate that I would be able to have the first month refunded in the event that | Sam’s claims did not hold up for me. Again, “30-day risk free guarantee” seal on the payment | page. | I went through every single piece of material in about 21 days completing the worksheets as I | went. I won’t go into specifics for fear of defamation litigation (google it, Sam does this), | but suffice it to say that the overall premise is: find a niche, market it, sell it. The | entire “Consultant Accelerator” course was a sales and marketing class with the addition of | finding a niche. I can see how in certain cases this may work for people. However it doesn’t | fit with my field (IT) nor my wifes (pet care) considering both are niched to the max as it | is. The course also relied heavily on Facebook solicitation (to friends and family as well as | strangers) and other practices I disagree with on principal. I decided to call it quits. | I emailed the refunds department on day 21 or 22 saying I wanted out and that I completed the | worksheets should they require them. I got an alert | a bit later while away on business that Sam Ovens had charged another $597! I immediately | disputed the charge with my credit card as well as the original $597 that they apparently | hadn’t refunded yet. | A month and a half later I got a call from my bank saying that Sam Oven’s was challenging my | dispute and provided all sorts of documentation saying the charges were valid. I then searched | my email for the chain with their refund department and found it in my spam folder | ([email protected], not samovens.com fyi). I guess that domain where blacklisted or it | matched similar items I sent to spam, I don’t know. But in the response to my refund request | they said: | “So sorry that you don’t want to participate in this life changing course anymore. The course | has tons of amazing information you will benefit from and I encourage you to participate. | This program comes with a 30-day action-based guarantee.You are within the 30 day period to | qualify for a refund, we urge you to give it another shot while you still have about 10 days | within the refund period, we are confident you will see outstanding results. | You originally signed up for the course with big dreams and ideas in mind. | Let us help you achieve that!” | I wrote back (after getting another call from my bank saying they were unsuccessful with the | charge-back) asking why I’m still being charged and why I was receiving an argument to my | cancellation request. There’s a long chain but to truncate: they will no longer accept my | refund because it’s been more than 30 days. Just like almost all the other complaints I’ve | found on the internet. They string you along until the 30 days is up and then “sorry”. | In hindsight there were various signs this was not a wise choice on my part. On one slide | during the webinar Sam says the refund is good for 42 days, but in reality it’s only 30. He | says this to make you willingly go over the expiration date. In my case I gave plenty of | notice to stop payments. They could have requested any documentation they wanted, but instead | decided to make me wait until the last moment to cancel (although I’m not sure anything I did | would have gotten me a refund given what I’ve experienced with them so far). | I have the entire initial webinar recorded with the sales associates promises of refund to boot. Reach out if you need it in your own personal litigation.
