Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Education scam being sued in federal class action

These right-wingers have pretty devious scams to supposedly help poor, ordinary people get rich. But in the end, the truth comes out and their get-rich schemes are just a scam to steal from the poor to get the frauds richer.

Robert Kiyosaki is well known for his book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", which became a best seller because it touches on peoples' desire to get rich. The book eventually evolved into live seminars in hotel conference rooms and then overpriced and worthless get-rich-quick real estate training courses.

Last week, a federal class action lawsuit was filed against Kiyosaki's Rich Dad fraudulent courses.
A federal class action claims Rich Dad Education and its affiliates use their "free classes" and $199 seminars about financial success as a come-on in a high-pressure "sales scam" to sell worthless courses for tens of thousands of dollars.

Named plaintiff Robert Crewe says Rich Dad's "sales scam is built on a misleading three-tiered sales pitch where customers are sold increasingly expensive financial training programs using pressures tactics and false promises."

Crewe says he paid $199 to attend a "Rich Dad Education Stock Success 3-day Training program, which was supposed to provide training and education in trading stocks."

But he says, "Defendants did not provide any training or education at the workshop. Instead, the sole purpose of the workshop was to up-sell 'students' into additional useless but more-expensive coursework and monitoring, which costs up to $64,899 per enrollee."

Also sued are Cashflow Technologies, Tigrent Learning and two entities, two Rich Dad affiliates, and Robert Kiyosaki, who lives in or around Phoenix and allegedly "approved, authorized, either expressly or tacitly directed, ratified and/or participated in the acts complained of herein".

Robert Kiyosaki is deeply connected with the right-wing scammers crowd like Glenn Beck, Donald Trump, and Amway. Here are some truthful and accurate analyses on Kiyosaki and Rich Dad.

Watch out for the right-wing get-rich-quick scams. It's only a scam to get them rich at your expense.

Update October 13, 2012 - Robert Kiyosaki has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection for one of his companies, Rich Global LLC, after loosing a $24 million judgment to Learning Annex.


  • I guess it took the financial crisis for people to wake up and see they were being sold a whole lot of nothing. About time.

  • I do not know what to do. I have also been scammed by them and they refuse to give me a refund and refuse to help me find someone to transfer this crap to! They are holding on to my money! I am a student and only attended thinking it would be interesting and helpful and was lied, told that I did not need to attend any further classes than the first $199 workshop. I need help and I do not know who I can reach out to! Advice?

  • Try contacting one of the watchgroup websites I linked above and ask what to do. John T. Reed has been around for many years exposing the Rich Dad scam and I think he can help out the best. If you get detailed information from them, please share it with the rest of us.

  • As much as I despise Kiyosaki, the problem is, even the Rich Dad empire shuts down, there will always be another scam artist to take his place and scam more people.

  • I've taken the classes, and they work. Yes, spent a few g's. But the education works. Stop whining you lazy drones. work instead of blaming others for not providing for you. Roberts right, there are workers and creators. Workers complain, creators do.

  • If you buy into something and only put in half ass work then none of it will work weather it is this grants and stocks all seminars sell classes then up sale some people buy in then pull the poor me i got scammed others take the info and make it work. The whole thing is if you think you can get rich quick then your stupid you have to work for it sacrifice being lazy and unorganized to make it or just play the Lotto. Information and understanding is the real wealth that you can make money anywhere without it your just another free loader on social security, section 8, getting food stamps hoping the hard working people out there are made to pay your way through life by government taxing them to support you.

  • Don't blame the "right-wingers". The biggest crook and criminals are in White House and Senate, Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the Demoncats (Democrats for you on the leftwho couldn't figure that out). I lived in Phoenix, and no one there could find any real estate that Kiyosaki (claimed he) owned, except I saw the house he lived in (don't think that was in his name either though).

  • Robert and his company isn't a scam. I've paid for the seminars and have received the information. I'm not rich, but the information he provides is. If you paid your money and you have nothing to show for it, you should be asking yourself what aren't you doing to make your situation better. Schools provide degrees that put you in a better position to get a job, but you're not guaranteed one, but you're not suing the school system. Robert and his company provides an education that doesn't give you a degree, so you feel you have nothing to show for it. If you handed your credit card over, then you should give yourself a good smack in the face because you signed up and paid for something that you weren't ready for and didn't fully believe in yourself to do. When you fail, it's no one's fault but your own. Pointing fingers only proves what lack of responsibility you are willing to take on your own future. I'm sure your lawsuit won't work out, but even if it does the money won't last long because you don't know what to do with it.

  • Robert kiyosaki is a scam with his rich dad scam company. He doesn't care why people think of him along as he gets richer.

  • I attended the 3 day real estate program, the speaker (Ann Sanfelippo) spent most of the time trying to sell us classes that cost 10K to 50K+. She gave a high level overview about a few areas of investing but not anything I could use right now to make any money, she would always say that the details would be covered at the next level classes. There were a couple of rumors going around the class, one was that the class instructor (Ann) had lost her home to foreclosure in the last year, no one had the balls to ask her. The second rumor was about a bus tour they were offering as one of the next level classes, they claimed this is where they teach you "hands on" type training, but in fact, this is where they sell you low income rental Real Estate properties for 50K or more. My friend who attended could not believe they would even attemp this type of scam, but they did. They sell you training classes then set you up to be sold properties by one of their associate partners, my friend was wondering how much Rich Dad was getting for this set up. Think about it, I will teach you about real estate and then introduce you to my partner, who will sell you properties that match what I taught you, is anyone concerned? My friend did not buy, he could see what they were doing and it made him very uncomfortable. It appears that the only thing that Rich Dad is concerened about is getting your money, watch out, proceed with caution when dealing with them.

  • Not everyone on here is claiming that they are owed "a degree" from Robert and his company. if you are one of the lucky ones that actually received fair educational advice from them, good for you. However, what these companies are trying to accomplish is unfortunately to get the type of groups that really do want to learn special techniques that will help them better theirselves to provide a stable future...yet these companies tend to always leave out key information in crowds in order to make their own profits. I'm sure that they have even come across a participant that they know for a fact that this individual should not be making their own choices but hey they have a credit card and by all means they wouldn't tell this person that they should think about it before handing over their money. You yourself said that "you're not rich" I hope you are doing pretty well with this. In conclusion, you stating that these people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own future and wouldn't know what to do with money if they were to receive it... That's just being very judge mental. Good luck
    P.S. No I have never attended one of these seminars nor do I plan to.

  • Recently, my wife and I did the three day introductory class presented by Legacy Education - an affiliate of Robert Kiosaki, in Estero FL.
    The primary Instructor was Jason, a gentleman from the UK - - - additionally, there were several other instructors as team members for this presentation.
    A wealth of information was presented to the class of approximately 45 students. The classes were from 8:00am to 5;30 pm on Friday - Saturday and Sunday. Homework was assigned on Friday and Saturday. Surprisingly, more than 6 students brought into the class several investing opportunities that were reviewed by the instructors for class participation - - - The instructors even offered "Coaching" for these opportunities at no additional cost. Yes, there was additional education offered to the class. The next level of instruction is quite expensive - - - but substantially less than tuition for a semester at a college .
    Kiosaki's education program is very similar to the investor education that I am familiar with for the past 10 to 12 years.
    Unfortunately, there are too many "students" that are not qualified to participate in these opportunities just as there are many student that are accepted by colleges and universities that fail to complete their education. In each of these situations, the unqualified student drops-out or fails and should not expect the program to refund their money - - - certainly these students should not sign-up for advanced education at a great expense when they can not afford the time or money to make it work. The instructors and other presenters made it very clear that this is a BUSINESS - NOT a Hobby and that your success depends on your commitment to yourself and the willingness to make it happen.
    My wife and I are proceeding with this program with Due Diligence and confidence in our success.
