Terms and Conditions Return Policy 

Yes, I am aware that Ernie Vargas has a no risk unconditional 30 Day Money Back Guarantee and therefore makes my purchase completely risk-free on the Probate Fox Home Study Course. I understand that I have 30 days from the date of purchase to return the course material(Home Study Course) for a refund but the course material must be complete and undamaged and therefore in resalable condition. All return shipping and handling charges, including package tracking are my responsibility. Refusing a package automatically voids this guarantee. I also understand that one on one consultations are non-refundable. In the event that I request a refund, I will contact Ernie Vargas and/or associates for a Refund Request Form. Once I am provided a Refund Request Form, I must complete the Refund Request Form and fax it back to 323.345.5360. After the request is approved, Ernie Vargas will then provide me with specific return instructions. Failure to provide Ernie Vargas and/or associates with the Refund Request Form, failure to ship the return to the provided return address, or failure to ship the return within 7 business days from approval of refund may result in denial of refund or additional shipping charges being deducted from my refund and will delay the refund. After the product is received in resalable condition, the refund will be processed within 30 days. Ernie Vargas will not be held responsible for any lost packages. If during the 30 day period I ask for consultation(constitutes asking for in sight information related to the course plus any supporting documents) whether in person, by email, text, or phone, I will be billed at the hourly rate for the consultation time used which will be deducted from my refund. Included will be charges for any documents that are sent that also support my growth in the probate/real estate business. The current billable hour rate is $300 per hour, billed in five(5) minute increments. An invoice with dates and length of consultation will be sent within 30 days from refund request along with the refund(minus consultation costs). Also, if within the 30 day period I attend a live training, including one one one consultations, the refund policy becomes null and void.

I understand that the 30 day guarantee DOES NOT apply to coaching as the Probate Fox Staff and Ernie’s time can not be returned. Nor does it apply to probate leads or documents that are purchased separate from the Home Study Course.
I understand that not attending the live event severely impairs my learning and therefore, voids the one year guarantee. I further understand that I need to provide evidence of two more strategies I used that didn’t work in addition to my attendance at the live training. I must submit this proof via fax or email after contacting Ernie Vargas in order to qualify for the mentorship.

As of April 4, 2014, any online courses (this includes physical courses with online access) do not fall under the “home study course”. Therefore, any courses that include online access are offered a 3 day money back guarantee. No exceptions.

Training Events

I understand that if I register for the training event and find 10 days before the event that I can not attend, I may call Ernie Vargas and/or associates and I can transfer to another training event with no penalty or cost on my part. I agree that not attending the training event does not hold grounds for a refund and therefore, none will be issued after 30 days of the date of purchase. I also understand that event dates, times, and locations are subject to change and every effort will be made to notify me in the event of such a change.

Additional Terms and Conditions

I understand and accept that the information contained on the website, live event, and course material are not intended to provide specific legal, financial, or tax advice, or any other advice, whatsoever and in the event that I have a tax or legal question or concern, I will seek the advice of an accountant, attorney, financial advisor, or real estate broker.

I release Ernie Vargas(home of Probate Fox.com) and any of its staff, employees, officers or affiliates from liability. I further acknowledge that I am responsible for my actions and assume full responsibility of my complete welfare.

I understand that by purchasing any product that I am agreeing to these terms and conditions, I further give Ernie Vargas and/or associates permission to contact me via fax, email, or phone to communicate special offers and information I may find valuable in my business.

In addition, I understand I will receive confidential information that may not be shared with anyone outside my partnership.  I will be held to this confidentiality even if a request a refund.

I agree to not reproduce these materials which are copyrighted. I further agree that I will not lend, rent, or sell them to anyone so as to remain in compliance with the federal and state copyright and trademark laws.
All sales are final after 30 days of purchase no exceptions. If 30 days has passed and I have not requested a refund, I understand that I can hold only myself liable.


My Obligation to Read

Under this agreement, I have an obligation to read this terms and conditions/ refund policy given to me and agree that I have done so.  In addition, I understand and accept that therefore, I can not use lack of reading or ignorance of this document as a defense against all remedies so contained here within.
