Christina and Tarek El Moussa have more to worry about than just their ugly split.
According to reports, over the past 5 years, the Federal Trade Commission received over 40 complaints about Zurixx’s Success Path Education program and the El Moussas were named in 6 of them.
The star couple teamed with an education company in order to create a seminar teaching people how to be successful in flipping houses, kind of like what they do on TV.
The El Moussas never actually stated they would be present for each seminar but the attendees stated that in fact, the promotional flyers did.
The Success Path class’ website has been recently updated, now saying:
“Tarek, Christina, or one of their team members will attend each event. Exactly who will attend each event varies. Running their successful house-flipping business, coaching and mentoring Success Path students, filming their tv show, and a strong commitment to their young family means that, unfortunately, Tarek and Christina are unable to make it to every event. They are proud to partner with trusted real estate experts who teach Success Path strategies on their behalf.”
If you want to sign up for the seminar, the first class in fact free of charge. However, according to the participants, they were forced to enroll in additional seminars for an initial cost of $1,997.
Furthermore, they were also sold the “Diamond Enrollment” package for a cost of $41,297, according to FTC records.
One of the participants claims that they were told to apply for new credit cards and increase the limits on their existing cards. When their financial adviser said they should not do such a thing, they were unable to get a refund.
According to another customer, they were told to take advances on their credit card and now they have $90,000 in credit card debt.
One participant shared how she and her husband acquired over $100,000 in credit in order to pay for the seminars and were applauded for their efforts in front of everyone. However, once they needed some help there was no one there to offer it to them.
Other participants complained that they were unable to obtain a refund once they figured out they didn’t want to attend the seminars anymore.
The El Moussas are yet to comment about the issues.
