Russ Dalbey Sued By FTC


Russ Dalbey is being sued by the Federal Trade Commission for defrauding consumers. Although consumers paid as little as $40 to get started, they were pressured into spending far more on worthless products, the FTC charged, with many consumers losing thousands of dollars.


'Winning in the Cash Flow Business' was a real loser for hundreds of thousands of consumers nationwide," David Vladeck, director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection, said in a statement. The FTC and the state of Colorado are seeking a court order to stop Dalbey, his wife and their businesses from making misleading claims, as well as to recover money to refund their victims. Defendants include Russell T. Dalbey; DEI LLLP; Dalbey Education Institute LLC; IPME LLLP; Catherine L. Dalbey; and Marsha Kellogg, a consumer who provided a false testimonial for the service.


The complaint accuses Dalbey and his co-defendants of violating the FTC Act and Colorado law by making false and unsubstantiated claims about the "Winning in the Cash Flow Business" program, as well as their coaching programs, workshops, seminars and note holder leads.
