Federal Court issues temporary order against Zurixx, LLC and its executives
October 4, 2019 - The complaint filed by FTC and DCP alleges that Zurixx’s free event is in fact a sales presentation for its three-day workshops that cost $1,997. Zurixx presenters have told free event attendees that the three-day workshop would teach them everything they need to know to make substantial income from real estate. Presenters at the three-day workshop, however, have often described it as merely a “beginner” course, while upselling consumers additional products and services that can cost as much as $41,297.
