I purchased a 2013 iTEFL on line franchise. The company promised a guaranteed refund of the $20,000US purchasing fee if in the first year $50,000 of sales were not reached. After six months I had a total of 3 sales at $750 per sale. On top of the initial outlay I paid $2000US per month for google advertising costs. I believe I was one of 20 franchises for that year. | I received a letter from the company in July 2013 saying the franchise had been an “unmitigated disaster” and the franchise would be ended and all outstanding monies refunded. In November of that year I received a letter from the company’s lawyer saying that outstanding payment would be made in increments of $450 per month meaning that the full refund would not be reached until 2018. After that letter I received a total of 3 monthly payments. Then nothing !!!! | After numerous promises to honour their commitment all correspondence from the company stopped.The individual website all franchisees were supposed to be getting did not exist they were all linked to the company’s main website so in effect all advertising costs that the franchisees were paying for was going directly to the ITEFL site and they were taking the bookings and filling their schools leaving the franchisees with a sale or two whilst trying to keep them interested by saying “things will pick up shortly” “hang in there” etc After many requests to see receipts for the supposed google advertising the company never produced any evidence. | Every year since and still to this day they a selling the same business model to innocent buyers like me. After many many emails to the company (between 2015-16 none of which were replied to) requesting answers as to what is happening I decided to contact IATEFL who ITEFL proudly boast as being accredited members of on their webpage. | Amazingly not less than 24 hours later after IATEFL contacted ITEFL I got a reply from a Debbie McLean telling IATEFL that she was “shocked and surprised” to hear of my plight and claimed that the company has lost my contact details!! She said the company was suffering financial difficulties at the time but would endeavour to resolve the situation. They didn’t! She also claimed that Jimmy Crangle was not involved with any of the financials of the company as he was no longer CEO but merely employed by the company in a marketing consultant capacity. | However a quick check that day on their webpage revealed all payments for courses were to be sent to a Hong Kong bank account under the name of Jimmy Crangle!! In the passing years since I have been in contact with similar victims like me, Ian Howard from Australia, Nick Spray. Nick Robinson and Grahame Bennett from the UK and Richard Enghi from the US all have given their permission to give you their details and are willing to tell you of their experience with this rogue company. | Is also know of many others who have been scammed by this man. The people behind this scam are Jimmy Crangle and Jane Openshaw and more recently Debbie McLean all prominent faces of the Itefl organisation. Please DO NOT EVER do any business with Jimmy (James) Crangle whatsoever he is a con artist and a thief !!!! He was the man who orchestrated this “Ponzi Scheme” which has lead to him leading a very luxurious lifestyle in Thailand at the expense of many financially crippled people. His latest business is Booster 365.com
