Robert Allen Holding Classes in Getting Rich in Real Estate. Don't Expect Him to Mention His Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
In a half-page in the Union-Tribune Feb. 1, Robert Allen says he will tell people how to get rich buying foreclosed properties cheap. He is holding seminars Feb. 2 in Mission Valley, Feb. 3 in Del Mar, Feb. 4 in Mission Valley and Feb. 5 in Carlsbad. This is the Robert Allen who wrote two runaway best-sellers, "Nothing Down," and "Creating Wealth." The last time I talked with him (he was reluctant to speak) was in 1996. He was touting his books and his seminars on getting rich in real estate. But he was in Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy. And living in Rancho Santa Fe. A word to the wise should be sufficient.
