Has anyone ever worked with the guys at The Art of Charm (Jordan Harbinger and company) and been able to get any of their investment back?
Unfortunately I am in a very annoying situation with them, as I had made numerous monthly payments toward a "future bootcamp" to the total tune of $2,655.
As you can imagine, this is money I really need back after deciding I was not going to be able to actually attend a bootcamp with them for financial/work-related issues.
After contacting The Art of Charm, their reply to my request to receive my money back after merely holding it for me an providing zero services (no phone coaching, etc has been done):
So basically, the only way I'm getting my money back is to transfer the credit to someone. This is easier said than done, as people online are not particularly inclined to "trade" boot-camp credit for money with someone they've never met. I've tried posting to forums, etc, and still to this date AOC has all of my money!While we can't offer a refund per se, we can:
1) Keep your credit with The Art of Charm on file
2) You can transfer your credit to someone else, say, a friend who is interested in taking the program from us.
At this point I plan on drafting a detailed letter to my financial institution to see what my best option would be at attempting to get back my payments for zero services rendered -- really feeling a bit swindled right now, and pulling at straws. Let this post serve as warning to anyone considering an expensive Art of Charm boot-camp -- a NIGHTMARE is in store should you not be able to attend. I've heard good things about the actual program, thus my initial investment. In retrospect it's proved to be a terrible idea.
Really just a bad business practice in my opinion; one that leaves a very bitter taste in the mouth of a former potential client.
