My brother has a bad stuttering problem, has ever since he began to talk and now hes 20. My friends mom found about this thing called the fluency master and was planning on buying it for him.
But I have a few questions a red flags.
#1 They want my mom to pay 3900 through Paypal, which is a ***** about fraudulent charges, and only covers up to 2000 if you do get scammed, and if you pay and the seller empties their bank account, well you're screwed.
#2 You're supposed to go to a specch patheologists to try it out, but they requested CASH ONLY, which leaves no paper trail whatsoever.
# 3 I googled the Doctors name and nothing came up on him.
# 4 The 2 doctors that my mom got a recommendation from and the audiologists who did the ear mold have never heard of the fluency master. We saw a video on VHS that was made in the 1980's and their website looks like it was made in the 1980's, yet 2 docters and an audiologists have never heard of it?
So, I mean, I would for my brother to have this, it would really improve his life, but I dont want my mom to get scammed for $4500.
So whats your opinion?

Re: I need opinions: Does this seem like a scam to you?
I used to have a bad stuttering problem (I'm 15 now and it's not completely gone). I worked with some people in elementary school on just basic therapy to help cope with the problem. The more you learn to cope with it, the more it goes away. Every now and then it comes back but I guarantee that anyone in my highschool that didn't know me in elementary school or middle school has no idea that I have a stuttering problem.
For some people different things work, this definitely looks like a scam though. Don't let you mom mail some people 4k for a stuttering program.
He could probably just get therapy to help for a much lower price and you it would probably work much better anyways...
