Watch out for this common IM Scam *NSFW – LANGUAGE*

I had a bit of a rant today against the IM community.

I grew up dirt poor. Eating Maceroni and Cheese on one day, and hamburger helper on the next, and back to maceroni and cheese. This went on for years.

So when I see fake proof, and vendors taking advantage of other people in this industry… my blood literally boils.

Watch today’s show here, where I call out IM.. again… for some of the bullshit that some vendors pull.

Questions? Comments? Put them below. I love talking with you.

    Great video steve. Very entertaining. I would like to know what product you guys are talking about so I can stay away from said products and/or people.

    Thanks

  2. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Video wave :/

  3. Berny, 10 September, 2016

    Hi Steve – Brett who was on this call?

  4. Tony, 10 September, 2016

    That’s some good shit there……….I am tired of all the bullshit online and we need more honest men like you two……have a good one!

  5. Tony, 10 September, 2016

    sorry I posted this in wrong spot…….should have been a main post

    That was great! Watching Bill giggling at the beginning made me laugh.
    It’s cool that you’re one of the honest guys in IM, that’s what I’m shooting for!
    Thanks!

  8. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    I hope you enjoyed it and my cursing wasn’t too overbearing.

    The stupidity is nauesiating! Not banging on you personally Stephen but the industry as a whole. Selling to is not working as a whole. 92% of everyone in the IM world make 1k a month or less. The ones who know how just want to suck cash out of the folks…..not help anyone really build a business. I saw a guy start with 10 folks……charged each of them 1500….he made 15k ONCE! STUPID I say! Why? Those 10 went on to sell 677,000 worth of monthly recurring income. Who thinks a 5th Grader knows 15k once is less that 135k a MONTH? Thing is the ones in our industry who know stuff HAVE NO BALLS! If they did they would go into business with the folks, work with them and split the cash. It is like the dirty little secret in the IM WORLD. Last count Mcdonalds sold BILLIONS! Franchise your know how Guru’s! Last count our industry 92% make less than 1k a month! Unlimited products and traffic and the result is 92% make 1k a month or less! Am I really the only one here who see this SUCKS? LOL I had a guy the other day I actually like a lot. Shared something I am working on…..he said it was a great idea! Then he says I have no time to do it with you but you can pay me 5k to Coach you! LOL Really, in my best Jonnie Mac impression…..ARE YOU SERIOUS? LOL I like this guy but really, you think I got a great idea but you want 5k from me instead of working with me and splitting the casholi? Am I really the only one who does not see there is a problem with the thinking here? We are all doing this to make enough money to have time freedom! This guy has no time freedom from what he is doing and wants 5k from me! To help me what? Not have any time freedom like him? If my idea is really great doesn’t it make more sense to do it with me and we both win? Anyways I hope one day reality of what is going on here will dawn on the ones who know what to do. Hope they grow a set of balls and start doing what is best for everyone! Start choosing wisely who to work with and do that and split the money! This ain’t rocket science……just the ones who know what to do do not believe enough in what they do to put their own skin in the game. If they did and worked with folks…..everyone would make more! Or just keep doing things the way they have always been done and leave almost all the money on the table. My story, sticking to it! That topic is what I wish you would get a guest to talk with and kick it around! SP

  10. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Hey:) send me an email and get in touch with me. I may be able to help with your idea and would be interested in working together if it’s as good as you say. My main mission is to help people. So if your idea does that get in touch! My Skype is stphnwynglbrt but if u message me on Facebook it comes to my phone. So long as it doesn’t end up in the others folder. Hope to talk to you soon!

  11. David, 10 September, 2016

    i paid seven thousand dollars for a cours with a certan person that calls himself a docter as well he taught me all of the stuff you guys are talking about and at the end of it i think i made a couple of hundred dollars when i was told i would get my money back from the product launch BUUUUUULSHIT SCAMMER and he still uses these tactics as we speak ok then Rant over ;o)

  12. David, 10 September, 2016

    Also these guys are the reason why there is so much dought and resistance toward buying a product online they are fucking things up for the good guys ;o)

  13. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    My point exactly!!

  14. john, 10 September, 2016

    Hey Steve wondering if you could
    tell us who is doing this so we could be aware to avoid them. I can understand you not wanting to maybe not post it here. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that. Just email me privately.
    Thanks!

  15. Tony, 10 September, 2016

    Me too…….

  16. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Video wave is the product.

  17. David, 10 September, 2016

    I dont agree with Brett

  18. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Me either.

  19. David, 10 September, 2016

    these people scammers pay big money for the copy writers to hard sell people buy on emotions and thats where they get the buyers from Brett being a marketer should know that

  20. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Yea Brett made some interesting points I just don’t happen to agree with them. I think a lot of people who are trying to learn I’m take it very seriously.

  21. Ken, 10 September, 2016

    Hey Steve, I’m with John …. I’ve been in IM for a while and hate when I buy a product that doesn’t produce, when I try to make money with it. I’d much rather have a “heads up” prior to throwing away my money, so if you KNOW who the clowns are that are scamming us BEFORE we buy, that would really be AWESOME. And what would be AWESOM-ER, would be maybe you could start a private list & let us know. I’d sign on in a heart beat. P.S.- I love your “studio”! :^) I just want to take that lawnmower around the block once!! :^)

  22. Tony, 10 September, 2016

    Yeah what he said…….

  23. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Haha well If you’re ever in the suburbs of Nashville perhaps I’ll let you!

  24. kenneth young, 10 September, 2016

    thank you for the heads up bud i really appreciate it i am poor and trying to dig my way out of this hell not trying to go further in to debt so i really appreciate your stand up to the plate because there are a lot of scammers out there so its cool that you’re trying to help and i hope you’re taking care of yourself.

  25. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Yes and same to you. I’m gonna find a way to start protecting u guys while protecting myself from lawsuits. It’s no fun to be trapped in court for two years even if I am right and will ultimately win.

  26. Bruria, 10 September, 2016

    What’s Bill’s last name and what’s the name of his product that Brett recommended?

  27. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    Bill Hugall – Poolside Profits or The Simple Affiliate

  28. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    I also recommended The Simple Affiliate – http://soulweb.org/simple-affiliate-review/

  29. Leo, 10 September, 2016

    Great piece of work guys.Keep pumping It out .

    What do you think about the functionalities of the software
    ?

    Initially I couldn’t quite figure out why they applied the income side,But thanks to you guys know I see It .

  30. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    I’m sure the software works great. I’m sure the methods are solid. But the proof made me uncomfrotable as it clearly wasn’t theres. WHen the proof isn’t theres, I don’t pursue it any further because I assume the whole thing is a shady operation.

  31. Bruria, 10 September, 2016

    Stephen and Brett–you both stated that you got your IM education from reading everything you could get our hands on. Would you please give us your recommendations of worthwhile IM reading material? Thanks!

  32. Stephen Gilbert, 10 September, 2016

    For me it was just reading forums. ALl forums. Warrior FOrum. Blackhatworld. Digital Point. For Bill, it was buying training, For brett it was reading like me. But brett isn’t on this blog so he probably won’t see this comment.

  33. Leo, 10 September, 2016

    OK thank you for Your feedback .

    What about the gurus who promote the material like Todd,Sam Bakker and others what is their responsibility in the game ?

    What about JV zoo

  34. Stephen Gilbert, 13 September, 2016

    It’s one thing to promote a software where the sales page promotes based on features alone. And results if the results are true. But to use fake proof is just unacceptable

  35. Derry Coker, 10 September, 2016

    was just about about to buy video wave are you saying it does not work as described

  36. Stephen Gilbert, 13 September, 2016

    I dunno if it works as described or not. ALl I know is the proof was fake.

  37. Chris, 13 September, 2016

    Thank you for creating this video. There are plenty of scammers out there but thankful for the 30-day return. The return policy is the only thing that leverages the process.

    I’ve learned a lot of the lessons the hard way. I look at it as an investment in my learning.

    The best lesson learned is after purchase, quickly use and test the product. When the claims that were made don’t match…. REFUND!

    I will follow you guys!

  38. Stephen Gilbert, 17 September, 2016

    Good advice!
