Yancey Events FTC Complaint & $4,577,409 Trade Law Suit

The Yanceys, known for “Flipping Vegas,” started Yancey Events to teach real estate investing.

They faced criticism for selling seminars, with some attendees thinking it might be a scam.

In 2020, the FTC filed a complaint, claiming they earned $10 million each by promoting pricey coaching packages through infomercials and free events.

Allegations included their awareness of complaints against Nudge, a real estate training company they endorsed, and plans to handle negative reviews, including possibly posting fake positive reviews online.

As a result, Scott Yancey and Dean Graziosi got into legal trouble with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Utah Department of Consumer Affairs regarding their involvement with Nudge, LLC. In a settlement (Case No. 2:19-cv-00867-DBB-DAO), a judgment was made against Yancey for $4,577,409.

However, the full amount was suspended, and Yancey had to pay $450,000, depending on the accuracy of his statements about his limited finances.

The judgment also accepted the facts in the complaint against Yancey as true without needing more evidence.

Personal Life

Scott Yancey tied the knot with his wife, Amie Yancey, on January 26, 2000. They have been happily married for over two decades.
