Has The Investment Group - Larry Higgins Scammed You Too? Please contact me for a class action suit.

This guy will say whatever it takes to get the upfront fee and then will dance around, get confused (I thought their was real estate with the business) and then send you down the road.

He stages little hiccups along the way that he says resulted in 6 out 6 denials and there you go, he's fulfilled his contract.

Larry is a Predator and should be stopped. He strong armed me to get the money by telling me his company would bill for services to date. After he gets the money, he keeps emphaiszing how hard his company is working.

Do not believe the words that come out of his mouth. He has been doing this for 15 years and is a pro. He gets paid whether you get the financing or not. And I really believe he didn't make any atempt.

Again I asked for proof 3 times and he says I have no merit. He little bobo on real estate is the deal breaker and his out. He told another guy who Gave him $30,000 up front to find properties 70% LTV, which he couldn't do and was out $30,000.

News Flash - Putting a deal in front of investers in not hard work, maybe two hours max. This guy is a class act not. I really believe he had no intention for this deal to go through and has benefitted $8500 from just me because he knows he can say anything to get the money and then hide behind his contract that says he only has to attempt to get funding. My problem is, I don't think he even attempted to get the funding.

To Whom It May Concern:

Our investment firm have been working with this client (David Leaton), since 09/05/2018, were he contacted our office through an ad that we had posted online about our nationwide commercial properties that were for sale and that the owners and their agents have agreed to carry-back up to 45% of their asking price!

At first this client was seeking to purchase a dispensary store in the state of Washington, and then an Auto Repair Business in which he told us that he had his own commercial funding. He never paid us anything for our time to find him a commercial property to purchase, along with all the commercial properties that he sent to us to negotiate with the commercial property owner(s) and their agent our carry-back owner finance program for him. Our investment firm showed this client over 15 different commercial properties to choose from to purchase, and when it was time to pay his assignment and transfer fee of $8,500.00, that all parties had agreed too, but now he was unable to pay. At this point we have been working with this client for over 6 months at our own expense.

On 02/27/19 we had agree to cancel this client’s file with our office and our email cancellation notice was sent. On 02/28/19, this client called our office and asked us not to cancel his file with our office and that we would have his assignment and transfer fee in the sum of $8,500.00, to us by the end of this week. This client gave us an ACH Draft Check from his banking account that later was a NSF Check and then he wired us $1,000.00, and five days later he finally paid us the rest. This client was giving us a big run around for our earned assignment and transfer fee.

This client was seeking to purchase the Auto Repair Business in this state of Washington that our investment firm have under contract with the owner and their agent and that the owner have agreed to carry-back $150K of their asking price. Our contract agreement states that the client would have the right to bring their own commercial funding to purchase this commercial property and business in which this client had informed us that he did have his own commercial funding. Our investment firms’ private investors / commercial lenders had only approved this client for $500K in which it wasn’t enough, and the other commercial lenders’ had turned down this clients’ file base on lots of factors. We immediately notified this client that we were not able to seek commercial funding for him to purchase this commercial property, and that he would have to seek his own commercial funding. He’s still not able to seek commercial funding, based on the same factors that our commercial lenders have come too. He stated from the beginning that he had his own commercial funding.

This false posting about our investment firm came to us has a surprise from this client, that this client had already threaten us early that he was going to post false statements online about our investment firm in which we have all supporting documents and our executed contract agreements, along with our email correspondence that will be turned over to our legal team for legal action against this client.

This client is’ indirect violation of our executed contract agreement. Thank you!

First off, let me start by saying yes i was very stupid for doing something like this. I basically wired 30 grand to a stranger. This stranger is Larry Higgins, President of The Investment Group Inc. This company is supposedly located in Indianapolis,Indiana. This is something that happened about 3 or 4 years ago. During this time I was reading books about becoming an entrenuer and believed in this fantasy that I can own a commercial proeperty with 100 percent financing. I did some research on the internet and came across Larry Higgins and His company "The Investment Group Inc.". I gave him a call and he said yes he would be able to get me 100 percent financing on a commercial property on the terms that the property was priced at around 70 percent of its value. He also said that I needed to wire him $6,500 as a (MBA) mutual business agreement and start looking for a property and so i did that stupid mistake.I took a personal loan of around of 6,500 and wired it to him. For a few weeks i looked for a property that would meet that criteria and i supposedly there was one that Larry agreed on that i found. But a few minutes later he offered me a "better deal" and told me about something else called Portfolio Financing. This is where he told me that i could own a group of million dollar properties and he would find 100 percent financing for me. But this time i would have to wire him around 20 thousand dollars and start looking for these million dollar properties with the price at 70 percent of its value. So i took a personal loan of around $20,000 and wired him the 20,000 dollars and started looking for these properties. After a few months of searching i had realized that this was pretty much impossible. After speaking to him i asked him to please give me back the money i wired him and he refused. And that is where the story ends. I just did what is probably the stupidest thing that any human can do which is Just wire money to some stranger i have never even seen before. After that i decided that i wasnt going to keep beating myself over this and try to frge about what i did and look forward. But now i realize that i should say something to at least oreventive someone else from doing the same mistake i did that is if there is anyone that is capable of doing something as dumb as i did. These days i see he has a website about something called Skip trace and im just hoping it isnt another one of his scams.
