I looked into this and thought it was all legitimate so I did fall for it. It appears that this is a legitimate way to make some money, however, they are fraudulent in the way they market this product. I also saw this ad on Yahoo, while searching for a job there.
I started to listen to the lessons but I continued to search for reviews about this training and stumbled upon this forum. Thank goodness!
I did a whois check on the website where a Trish Morgan had an article in comsumer-reporting.net and I also compared it to summit-institute.net which is who they are going by now and they are both registered to the same Jill but with different last names, however, the address were identical to each other. So this was all a self promoted report. I also did a search for Trish Morgan and found nothing about her. I have the link on this post below.
If anyone has other info to report, please continue to post here!!!
I disputed the charge on my credit card and got a credit back. I really thought this was a legitimate certification!!! We'll see what happens next, I'll keep everyone updated as to the status.
Be diligent on your homework before jumping in a work at home product!!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
