I called the number in the bank statement and was given the ole' merry-go-round treatment. Justin Gurr answered and suggested I call the number on the website. Called the number on the website, a recorded message said the conversation would be recorded and then the line went dead. Tried it again...same thing.

Turns out the Tax Lien Academy is/was run by the Mars Hill Media group, in fact a church group. A Yahoo search revealed that Mars Hill Media is/was owned by a church and their phone has been disonnected.

A search on "John Wolsey" reveals that he is now operating under the URL That's where his "newsletters" are posted. His newletters are nothing more than a few words on one page. They don't even come close to the meat of tax liens; they are just "come ons" to get you to buy his book and his course.
