Sam Ovens – Misleading Ads, No Refunds, Lies, & Fake Reviews
Sam Ovens from Consulting.com runs international ads targeted towards a young generation of passionate men & women. He offers to help them become millionaires and deca-millionaires for a small price of a few thousand dollars. Right? Or is he just after the “few thousand dollars”?
Short answer: He just wants a few thousand dollars from you, after that, he will try to convert you into become an affiliate for his company (just like how an MLM scam works).
Long answer, well, I spent 40 hours on it, and this review is the long answer.
You might be wondering “Is Sam Ovens A Scam?”, or, “Is Consulting.com Worth It?”. I’m here to answer all such questions. By the end of this read, you will know everything there is to know about Sam Ovens & Consulting.com. The good and the bad.
If you’re a big Sam Ovens fan or think that I’m just a troll who’s hungry for attention, then please give this review a read. It might change your perception of Sam Ovens.
What Sam Ovens Claims To Be (Who is Sam Ovens?)
Sam’s back story is part-truth and part-false. The claims about being from a “middle-class family” and the classic garage entrepreneur ploy is utter non-sense.
Sam Ovens founded Consulting.com and SnapInspect. He primarily sells an exorbitant course called Consulting Accelerator training. On his website, he claims that his course has produced around 25 millionaires and approximately 500 six-figure income-earning individuals. These are some extreme claims and there is no proof of these successes, however, in the fake guru business, that’s how things are.
The backstory that Sam Ovens claims to have is absolutely cliche and quite honestly, hard to believe. He claims to be from a middle-class family where he was not given any opportunities to become rich. Sam claims that he was brought up in New Zealand in a working-class family.
This is the career trajectory claimed by Sam Ovens:
- A job at Vodafone (well-paying)
- Quit the job at moved back to his parent’s house and ran his business from the “garage”
- Started multiple businesses and failed (PromoteYourself and ToTheDesk)
- Started SnapInspect and got success
- Started providing Digital Marketing services to businesses to facilitate money
- Launched Consulting Accelerator and earned $20 Million
- Launched Consulting.com and released Consulting Accelerator 2.0
This pretty much sums up the question how Sam Ovens got rich.
The first half of this trajectory is under suspicion, as fake gurus are infamous for lying about their past and they do so to sell the idea that they weren’t born in wealth and they worked hard for their money. While in reality, this is most often not the case.
Fake gurus know that if people knew the truth about them, they won’t spend their life-savings on their courses.
If you Google Sam Ovens net worth, you will see a featured snippet from JacobMcMilllen dot com which shows it to be $65 Million. Now, unless you’ve been thoroughly brainwashed by the propaganda advertisements and webinars of Sam, you will realize that this is an absolutely fake number.
Sam Ovens Net worth is NOT $65 million
You might be thinking, “Why would Sam lie about his net worth, what good does it do?”. Well, the answer is not that complicated. He takes a page from the classic MLM manipulation scams which have been running for decades. In MLM scams, sellers lie about their net worth to fool people into thinking they are successful. Because most people measure success by money, lying about your net worth can bring excellent results for a fake guru and this is precisely what Sam Ovens and other scammers like him do.
Bogus Consulting.com Reviews: Conflict Of Interest
Consulting.com is Sam’s main venture and he rakes in millions of dollars through this company.
Customer reviews and ratings of any product/service matter a lot, as people refer to these to determine whether the product/service is worth considering or even taken seriously. Companies take different measures to make sure their customers get a chance to share their experience online, and usually they setup business profiles on 3rd party review portals.
However, this poses a big issue for scammers like Sam Ovens, as they want to have full control over what their customers are saying about them online, that’s why Sam’s team as setting up a bogus review collection of ~4000 reviews on their own website (Consulting.com).
This is a total disaster.
No one with a sane mind can expect a company to put unadulterated reviews on the same website as they sell their flagship product which is infamous for its horrible price to return ratio.
On this section of the website, out of the 3,772 reviews, only 11 are 1-star reviews. Which is just an absurd number as by doing some simple digging we can see that actual Sam Ovens webinar students call it a scam.
Taking a deeper look at Consulting.com reviews, I found some real reviews on Trustpilot. However, due to the highly controversial nature of the website I cannot rely on the permanency of these reviews. So to store real Consulting.com reviews in a permanent manner, I’ve screenshotted them and posted them down below:
Fake DMCA Strikes To Delete Real Sam Ovens Reviews & Complaints
Sam Ovens Hates Freedom Of Speech
Sam Ovens and his team are extremely meticulous with their presence online. They have no limits to what they can do to make sure their victims don’t realize they are getting scammed. It’s all part of the manipulation which I’ll discuss later in this report.
During my research, I found some very interesting threads on Reddit.com.
Each of these threads has thousands of views, however, they have been taken down from Reddit due to a “copyright notice”.
The first thread was exposing how Sam’s Consulting Accelerator course’s scam works. u/BSbizadvice was a self-proclaimed fake guru buster 4 years ago. This thread was soon plagued by Sam Ovens affiliate market guys and they spammed generic comments and voted them to the top.
Not only that, but these affiliates also downvoted the post to make sure the Reddit algorithms don’t recommend it to anyone.
If you thought this was creepy and unethical, the second thread will shock you to the core.
This post was made by u/bigsum around 2 years ago.
Fake DMCAs are not a prank or an innocent mistake, it is a planned criminal scheme which aims to harm freedom of speech and abuse the system for personal gains.
The user simply wanted to know if people had any opinions on Sam Ovens’ Consulting Accelerator program. And 31 people even commented on it, giving their thoughts.
However, the thread wouldn’t have been 100% positive and praising Sam Ovens, so he and his team decided to take down the post and every single comment which was critical of Sam’s course.
You might be thinking, ‘How can he possibly do this legally?’, and I have the answer you’re looking for.
Using Trademarks To File Crooked Copyright Notices
Sam Ovens and his marketing team simply sent Reddit a copyright notice for every comment on the post which had the term “Sam Ovens” in it.
Sam teaches his students how to abuse the copyright system and take the freedom of speech from your customers on the internet, I have video proof of that. This seems to be part of his “consulting”. Well, he does have experience with doing fake DMCAs and abusing the copyright system, so he can definitely pass on his knowledge to his students who paid thousands of dollars to learn how to scam people.
I explained how this works, now let’s go over why does Sam do this and how is this even legal.
Taking Down Critical Analysis & Customer Complaints
This is the most lucrative reason why Sam trademarked his own name as a work mark. He knows that the courses he sells online are horrible and don’t provide any long term value. So he undestands that they will get tons of 1-star reviews on the internet, but if that happens, everyone will realize how his scam works. So here’s what he does, he simply files a fake copyright strike to take them down from Google/YouTube.
With this method, not only is he keeping a false image of excellence, but he is also disheartening any victims of his scam. The latter is important as Sam wouldn’t want the victim to report him to the FTC, because he doesn’t want to end up like Jason Bond Picks.
I think resolving your customers’ complaints and gripes is a much better way of doing business, but shutting them off is the easier and cheaper way. And if there’s one thing Sam values the most, is his money. He wouldn’t want to spend it on naïve 20-somethings who just bought his course after seeing a random ad on the internet.
Are Fake DMCAs Illegal? Why Isn’t Sam In Jail Yet?
Yes, you can go to jail for filing false copyright claims on the internet.
However these DMCA cases don’t usually go to court because litigation is expensive and most people can’t afford a proper lawsuit. This gives a major advantage to con-artists like Sam Ovens, who have tons of money and still target middle-class youngsters for money.
Sam Ovens Affiliate Program: Basically An MLM Scam
Sam Ovens converts his students into affiliate marketers and asks them to post heavily biased reviews without revealing they are affiliates.
Sam sells online courses which have insane profit margins as he doesn’t spend any money on editors or video quality (unlike Slow Growth Academy). So he can offer some unimaginable deals like giving his courses for half the price or 30% off.
These offers are mostly available through the affiliate links that are all over the internet.
It might come as a shock to some people, but most of the affiliates that write fake reviews and testimonials for Sam, are actually people who bought a course from Consulting.com.
The reason why Sam’s team converts these students into affiliates quite easily is that they are already heavily manipulated. These people have spent thousands of dollars on an online course which provides litttle to know value for its cost, so to avoid backlash from the students, they offer them an affiliate partnership.
Even though there are a lot of affiliate partners of Consulting.com which were previously students, not all the affiliates are like that.
There are actual affiliate marketers which make anonymous websites like “My Sam Ovens Review dot Com”, and then fill those websites with false reviews to get clicks.
How much do Sam Ovens affiliates earn?
It essentially varies. The more you can lie, the more you will earn, it’s that simple.
If you go to any of the websites that are being operated by Sam Oven’s affiliates, you will find a strong pattern of heavily biased content that revolves around presenting a false image of Sam & his businesses.
People who are honest, like me and you (fingers-crossed), can’t make any money by being an affiliate with Consulting.com.
You will have to constantly lie about the quality and relevance of the courses in order to sell it. Because the actual course is just horrible. Testimonials from Coffeezilla’s videos show the truth about Consulting.com and if you don’t believe me, then I strongly suggest you check out his videos on Sam.
How Sam Ovens Scam Operates:
This is a very important section. I got in contact with some experts and some insiders at Consulting.com, who provided me with some critical information about the operations of this scam.
You will read a lot of great things on Sam Ovens reviews everywhere, that’s simply because it’s all part of the sales funnel. Sam has to sell you a dream and if he gets exposed as Tim Sykes has been, people won’t buy his useless program(s).
Collectively we found some really interesting things, so without any further ado, let’s dive right in:
The Luring Advertisements
The whole manipulative sales funnel starts with a series of advertisments. Usually it’s 1-3 advertimsents, all with a similar script. This idea of ads was made viral by none other than Tai Lopez, and Sam Ovens caught on to the trend as soon as he noticed it.
The infamous ad of Sam in a blue suit, standing in a rented corporate office became a meme the year it came out.
However it’s not all fun and games.
These adverts might seem like silly jokes to people who see through the lies, however there is a significant portion of the targeted audience which fall for these ads.
These are people who are usually not content with their career choices or simply don’t want to work hard at a “boring 9 to 5”.
The ads are created in such a way that you think about them even if you skip them all the time. They are very thought-provoking, but in a condescending way. The advertisement will call you a failure in life if you are not making X amounts of money in your sleep.
On average a victim clicks on the ad after they’ve interacted with it at least 11 times.
When they click on the promotional button, they are taken to the landing page.
Convincing & Relatable Landing Page
This is where the magic happens.
The landing page is usually one of the most expensive and important for fake gurus like Sam Ovens and Rahul Mannan.
The job of the landing page is to convince the victim into thinking that the course is precisely what they need in order to set their lives straight.
This is the only thing the landing page does.
Because if a person has clicked on Sam’s ad, then there’s a high chance that they are emotionally vulnerable, so the copywriter tries to exploit them.
Landing pages of these fake gurus are often filled with relatable or shocking questions like “Wanna learn how I made $10,000 in 3 hours?”. This is just to grab the victim’s attention and get them to scroll further below where they will be shown fake testimonials and finally led to the purchase page.
Fake 5-Star Reviews & Testimonials
Most people will get a voice in their head saying, “This is stupid, I shouldn’t spend my rent money on a stupid course.” And people usually don’t make the purchase without doing their due diligence.
Doing the due diligence ensures they make an informed decision. So they look for other people who have already bought the course/program and look for their reviews.
After all, who would lie in a review? Right?
Well, the truth is plain ugly.
When a victim does this, they are plagued with fake reviews which are posted by Sam’s affiliates or his marketing team. The real reviews are buried so deep that they are never found.
At this point most people get fooled and they get scammed for thousands of dollars. But the scam doesn’t stop just yet.
Upselling Through Emails
Once Sam’s team realizes that someone has bought a course, they start to give them extra attention in order to get every penny out of them.
They won’t stop until they have sucked their victim dry.
They send emails of lucrative offers of other courses, which are written by manipulative copywriters.
Some of these courses are not even shown on the website and are only sold to the fools of the fools.
This is exactly how Sam makes millions of dollars every year. It’s by ruining youngsters’ lives.
File An Official Sam Ovens Complaint To FTC
You might think that you are powerless against this millionaire scam artist, but don’t let your nihilism stop you from doing the right thing.
If we don’t stop Sam as soon as possible, he will keep ruining lives of young people by giving them false hope and looting them for cash.
It is tempting to convince yourself that the money you wasted on Consulting.com’s trash courses is good as gone. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
The FTC recently proved that the complaints victims send to them are actually heard. They have been taking down scammers left and right, if we speak up against Sam and present our case to the FTC, he will be thrown in jail as well.
We might even get our money back and then some.
We need to submit our detailed complaint to the FTC, getting in touch with a lawyer might also be a good idea, but I don’t think it is a practical one.
Above is the link to US Government’s official FTC fraud submission link.
If we take action then even Sam’s nasty team of marketers can’t stop us from being heard!
Sam Ovens Review 2021: Verdict
Sam Ovens constantly lies about his business operations in order to create a false reputation. He is running several scams including an MLM-type recruiting scam, refund scam & false copyright strikes. Consulting.com is a highly unethical business, they post false 5-star reviews on their website which is a direct conflict of interest. Overall, Sam Ovens is a scammer and FTC needs to take immediate action to take him & his company down.
Real student testimonials of Consulting Accelerator & Consulting Accelerator 2.0 complain about the lack of depth and quality. However, these reviews are not shown anywhere as they drive potential victims away from Sam’s scam. Sam’s marketers either bury these reviews or take them down using unethical practices like fake DMCA strikes.
What do you think about the Sam Ovens scam? Do you think the FTC will finally wake up and arrest him, or would he roam freely in his foreign cars?
Will Sam Ovens’ affiliates spam fake reviews on more threads online or would they finally realize what they are doing with their lives?
Sam Ovens (Consulting.com) lacks any morals and will do anything to get money. He deliberately targets young naïve people and manipulates them into spending thousands of dollars on his courses. He uses fake DMCAs to take down customer complaints. Consulting Accelerator is reported as an exorbitant useless course by real students & customers. Sam is just a scammer and the FTC need to take strict action against Sam Ovens & Consulting.com.
- Mediocre Courses
- Fake Positive Reviews
- Fake DMCA Take Downs
- Running An Unethical MLM Type Scheme
- Questionable Statements
I have been receiving emails from Sam, since I started observing his techniques. The latest mastermind is asking for a payment of $36,000 (a Tesla).
I don’t understand how anybody would invest that much money in a conference of a few hours…But that is because I am poor right?
Yours was the only review that seemed to go against the grain.
2 of my friends had bought his Sam Ovens courses from Consulting.com. And both of them regret their decision. The guy doesn’t know anything and claims to be an industry expert. His only expertise is in lying and manipulating others. Avoid dealing with this scammer people.
Wow — if you are considering joining Consulting.com’s Quantum Mastermind group or the WeTube Mastermind, I would highly advise against it based on my experience.
I am not the only one that regrets joining Quantum. I mean, I absolutely regret joining and allowing myself to be bamboozled, but I know others in the group feel the same way. I’ve asked others in the group, and they’ve directly told me that they regret joining the group. However, with the group basically being a Sam Ovens cult, people are afraid to speak up.
I had been a huge fan of Consulting.com and a lot of Sam Ovens’ work, so when I made quite a bit of money from a short-term opportunity, I was interested in learning more about courses and decided to sign up for an UpLevel call. They make you ‘apply’ to get on the call, and because of this I thought it was really selective and they only want people who will be a great fit, genuinely.
I later found out that when I applied to the UpLevel call, they were in the process of discontinuing the UpLevel product altogether. Because of this, their automation transferred me to a Quantum Mastermind call instead. As I reflect on this now, I realize how shady this is because UpLevel and Quantum are two completely different products with completely different price points. Each group is for people at two very different stages of their business, so I am not sure why they would automatically reroute UpLevel applicants to Quantum. I guess it must be because they don’t really care about who joins the group, as long as they have the money. That’s my guess.
During my Quantum sales call with one of their reps, David, he told me that he thought I’d be a good fit for the Quantum Mastermind. I didn’t know much about the group, but he was explaining that it is a group of 99 other business people at 7 and 8 figures. Sounds pretty compelling, right? I mean, being in the same group as 99 other 7 and 8-figure business people would be pretty amazing to learn from, right? I thought so too. However, at the first live mastermind event in March 2022, I realized this wasn’t actually the case. Everyone has to introduce themselves, and I recall that the majority of people in the group were NOT actually at 7 or 8 figures. I might’ve heard from one single person that was at the 8-figure mark. Even to this day, they publish on their website that it is a group of ’99 other founders at 7-8 figures’. Go look for yourself!
I realized that most of the people in the group were not actually as successful as I’d imagined, and as they advertise.
After 3 months of being in the group, it was crystal clear. I did not belong in the group, was not a good fit, and was not getting anywhere close to the value I had hoped for. I was sold into a group that I did not belong in at all. I had zero revenue and wasn’t even sure what I wanted to work on when I joined. Yet, somehow, in David & Sam’s eyes, I was a good fit for this group that required people to be ‘an expert with an existing business making at least $30,000 /month’.
When I realized that I wasn’t a good fit, and I wasn’t getting value, I approached Jesse (their Co-CEO), and let him know what I had decided to pursue instead. I told him it was clear that I wasn’t a good fit for the group, and since they have (according to them) a bunch of people waiting on their waitlist, it would make sense for me to bow out and give my spot to someone else who would actually benefit from it. I wanted to be reasonable, so instead of asking for a FULL refund, I asked for a prorated refund. That way, they could be paid for the time I was in the group, and they could let someone else in and give me the remainder of the money back. Jesse flat out refused and said there are no refunds at all. He wouldn’t even comment on the fact that I wasn’t a good fit, and how it made zero sense for me to be in the group.
Here’s where it gets really scummy, though, and where their true colors really shine through.
There have been several inquiries in the group on refunds. People ask about what they should do when someone doesn’t want to be in the group anymore, and time and time again they’ve advised the OTHER group members that they should just refund them and move on. They say that if the consumer wasn’t seeing value, or wanted a refund, they weren’t a good fit in the first place, and that their vetting process should be altered to ensure a better fit in the future.
This is the exact same position I was in, and the exact same request I made – and they completely ignored their own advice.
After pursuing the request further, and sending them a Final Request for a Prorata Refund, they simply removed me from the group with no refund and no explanation.
Since being removed from the group, I have reached out requesting information about my removal multiple times, and neither Sam nor Jesse have addressed it. It is as if I never existed.
This is unfair, and it’s not how you treat people who have trusted you with their money. I would not recommend doing business with Consulting.com, and I would not recommend joining their Quantum Mastermind group. Save your money, or find a better group to invest in.
Sam Ovens is NOT a scam, this is obviously a fake massive attack against Sam, maybe because of some lazy, low IQ individual trying to resell his course and failing. Check out the reviews… All of them done in a small period of time with different names & no profile pictures.
This is really upsetting.
please do a report on oz konar who sells a course called business lending blue print.he is on a youtube video with sam ovens . his course is worthless with hours of filler. or tell me how to do the report? he does same tactics as facebook private group no negative replys..he banned me from asking questions regarding sam ovens. i actually heard one of oz workers spouting off what a stupid fool one of his purchasers of his program was..they make th money selling worthless course..
You just didnt implent what he teaches so you lost money because you are lazy have low IQ and rather focus on the negative vs the positive he teaches. You probably do less than 4k a month in your business and will always stay there. Don’t hate on sam he knows his stuff.
Where are the authorities when you need them? Sam needs to close shop, he has scammed too many people now.
Sam is a great sales man, but he’s selling you a model that is now antiquated, flooded and over populated. It’s ten years out of date and these systems simply won’t work in 2022.
He has a heavy focus on Facebook Ads and the sales system is straight out of the ‘00s. The world has changed, the market is saturated and the customer is becoming savvier and more aware of the DIY tools of digital marketing that really leaves this niche to only the most exploitable or ignorant. Charging these prices will be extremely rare, and in the odd case ethically dubious.
If you truly want to learn Digital Marketing invest heavily in the free Youtube resources first, then Udemy if you need more. If you need Sales Psychology invest in Tony Robbins, Youtube and books.
This is a $2k+ powerpoint full of mistakes (including spelling). The value is Facebook Ads which is not worth the price of admission. The rest of the PowerPoint is filler and fluff like “Untying Gordions Knot the death of all blue swan empires”, which equates to: “keep organised”. Clearly is there just because the table of contents sells.
He has a tenuous grasp on the topics he self aggrandizes himself as having “mastered” – his understanding of Quantum Physics is completely flawed (I have a Masters in this field), psychology is fractured, philosophy is poorly researched and his maths is all over the shop. He believes his own bull and doesn’t research or is simply not smart enough to grasp the simple truths. At one stage he tells you to look at the benefits of flat earth. What a tool.
Finally, the lack of charisma and the snails pace is grating. I am astounded, even impressed, that a guy with zero charisma, poor presentation skills, cold combative attitude and a voice like a door mouse has sold anything to anyone. I mean – congrats I guess.
The truth is: there are no shortcuts in this life, and I think you know that. You could invest 2 hours in mastering digital marketing through free resources – save yourself thousands and more importantly weeks of your precious time, money and most importantly energy.
I bought Consulting Accelerator.
For the price of just $2k, you get far more content than you would in 1 year of business school, for about 5% of the price.
I don’t know what the morons on this page are so ticked about.
Sam teaches some fairly traditional marketing and sales advice with his own unique spin and angles. I already had a fairly successful online course business when I joined, but with his sales script and sales model my in person and Zoom sales calls got a lot more profitable.
I’ve bought a lot of online trainings and coachings… ranging in cost from a few hundred bucks to $37,000.
Anyone who says Sam is one of the bad guys or is a “scammer” is automatically categorized as an idiot to me.
It’s not a scam.
He says that for $2k you will get an online course and access to a private client group.
He delivers an online course and a private client group. He delivers on what he promises.
You all need to drop your victim mentality and work harder.
By the way, I used his material to help me sell music lessons better… and it 100% worked.
First I want to say how embarrassed I am that I got taken by these types of people. I had just lost my IT job when I got an invite to a consulting webinar from Sam Ovens. It seemed to be a great fit for my field and I had the experience necessary to technically consult already. Seemed like a slam dunk…
I watched the ~90 minute webinar where every promise under the sun is made. “110% money back guarantee”, “$2000/month client in the first 30 days or your money back…”, “anyone can do this if they follow my steps”, etc. It was stated over and over again how ironclad their guarantee was. I signed up for the monthly installment plan after confirming via webinar-chat with their associate that I would be able to have the first month refunded in the event that Sam’s claims did not hold up for me. Again, “30-day risk free guarantee” seal on the payment page.
I went through every single piece of material in about 21 days completing the worksheets as I went. I won’t go into specifics for fear of defamation litigation (google it, Sam does this), but suffice it to say that the overall premise is: find a niche, market it, sell it. The entire “Consultant Accelerator” course was a sales and marketing class with the addition of finding a niche. I can see how in certain cases this may work for people. However it doesn’t fit with my field (IT) nor my wifes (pet care) considering both are niched to the max as it is. The course also relied heavily on Facebook solicitation (to friends and family as well as strangers) and other practices I disagree with on principal. I decided to call it quits.
I emailed the refunds department on day 21 or 22 saying I wanted out and that I completed the worksheets should they require them. I got an alert
a bit later while away on business that Sam Ovens had charged another $597! I immediately disputed the charge with my credit card as well as the original $597 that they apparently hadn’t refunded yet.
A month and a half later I got a call from my bank saying that Sam Oven’s was challenging my dispute and provided all sorts of documentation saying the charges were valid. I then searched my email for the chain with their refund department and found it in my spam folder ([protected]@consulting.com, not samovens.com fyi). I guess that domain where blacklisted or it matched similar items I sent to spam, I don’t know. But in the response to my refund request they said:
“So sorry that you don’t want to participate in this life changing course anymore. The course has tons of amazing information you will benefit from and I encourage you to participate.
This program comes with a 30-day action-based guarantee.You are within the 30 day period to qualify for a refund, we urge you to give it another shot while you still have about 10 days within the refund period, we are confident you will see outstanding results.
You originally signed up for the course with big dreams and ideas in mind.
Let us help you achieve that!”
I wrote back (after getting another call from my bank saying they were unsuccessful with the charge-back) asking why I’m still being charged and why I was receiving an argument to my cancellation request. There’s a long chain but to truncate: they will no longer accept my refund because it’s been more than 30 days. Just like almost all the other complaints I’ve found on the internet. They string you along until the 30 days is up and then “sorry”.
In hindsight there were various signs this was not a wise choice on my part. On one slide during the webinar Sam says the refund is good for 42 days, but in reality it’s only 30. He says this to make you willingly go over the expiration date. In my case I gave plenty of notice to stop payments. They could have requested any documentation they wanted, but instead decided to make me wait until the last moment to cancel (although I’m not sure anything I did would have gotten me a refund given what I’ve experienced with them so far).
I have the entire initial webinar recorded with the sales associates promises of refund to boot. Reach out if you need it in your own personal litigation.
The course was terrible. Sam Ovens makes you think that you can succeed very easily and with very little investment but the truth is, you can only succeed after taking his course if you have several hundred thousands to invest.
I invested thousands of dollars into my “consulting” business but my results were very disappointing. After spending months, following his advice word by word, I couldn’t take it anymore. Running a business is hectic enough but it gets worse when you’re running a failing business.
Not everyone is born in a great house but Sam seems to think so. Otherwise, I see no point in him teaching things that won’t do much unless you invest $100K+.
Now, if you have $100K+ lying around somewhere then you’re free to take his course and test out the things he teaches. Otherwise, I won’t recommend joining Consulting.com. The program was an utter disappointment. I won’t even go into the stress and depression I went through because of Sam’s expensive course.
I highly doubt that the 5-star reviews on Sam’s courses are from his students. Maybe one or two succeed but most people simply can’t. His strategies “could” work with very large investments. but they are definitely not for someone small. Maybe it’s because Sam himself comes from a well-off family idk.
Pay close attention to the 1-star and 2-star reviews on Sam. They are the ones telling the truth about him.
I’ve (actually) gone through Sam’s programs, unlike you who spent “40 hours” snooping around on the internet and collecting phrases from all of the pissed off people who didn’t do the work, expected a “push button” solution, and ended up complaining and writing bad reviews in various places, and you then collected and posted them all here in one big attempt to make Sam and his company look bad.
You should be very ashamed of yourself for this.
Any company that has thousands of customers is going to have a small percentage of people who get mad, claim it doesn’t work, etc.
Go to literally any product on Amazon and look at the split between the reviews. A product can have 15,000 five star reviews and there will still be hundreds of 1 star reviews as well.
What you essentially did was gather all those one-star reviews and post them on here. Amazing detective work.
You didn’t even go through his program. You didn’t talk to any of his successful clients.
This is like researching OTHER people’s opinions about a restaurant and then leaving your own scathing review without EVER even eating at that restaurant.
Sam’s programs work. His courses are far above any other programs out there. I’ve invested in many of them. Yes, they’ve made me multiple six figures in income, FAR more than they cost. Yes, it required a lot of work and persistence and overcoming my own mindset issues and personal limitations. Things that many of the pissed off people couldn’t overcome.
I’m so sick of people who never went through a program thinking they can ruin someone’s reputation and business online. You should be sued for writing this up, and I just may suggest that Consulting.com pursue that avenue if you refuse to take this down.
Life is short, do something meaningful and honest with your time, please.
Did Sam hire you to write this 5-star review that says nothing about his product or the quality of his teaching but gives him 5 stars anyway? Sorry sir, I don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a course just because you think “Sam is a good guy”.
Sam Ovens is probably one of the biggest fakes out there. Signing up for his course on consulting.com was a huge mistake. There wasn’t much support and the content was quite bland. you’d think Sam Ovens would teach you something you can use to launch your own business but he teaches you the same stuff you can learn in some $5 handbook you buy on craigslist. I was utterly disappointed with my experience. There must be hundreds of people who had the same experience as me.
I had no idea Sam Ovens would be such a cheap and low-level guy. He sends fake DMCAs to blogs and reviews?! I don’t care how good or bad his product is but if he uses such a terrible tactic to bury reviews then I’m pretty sure his course is no good.
Getting the Sam Ovens course was a huge mistake on my part. The guy is selling trash and is charging tens of thousands of dollars for it. The courses are a total ripoff. It’s like paying for a college degree and learning the alphabet. The guy is a total joke. I don’t know how is he even in business.
His course is $2,000. how is that tens of thousands of dollars?
He is a fake guru. Sam Ovens sells overpriced courses and makes outrageous claims about his successes. He is worse than ponzi schemers because he literally toys with people’s lives and crushes their dreams. Can Sam Ovens tell people how many of his students succeed every year? And by success I mean making millions like he claims to.
This man is ruining lives and is getting away with it because no authority looks into guys like him. The nature of Sam Ovens business allows him to hide from legal regulators like the Federal Trade Commission and the SEC. Avoid this scammer kids. Avoid him.
Sam Ovens doesn’t teach anything new in his programs. That’s his biggest problem. He is charging thousands of dollars for teaching stuff that you can learn for free. All you need is a knack for learning and some dedication. I launched my own online business without taking any courses from Sam Ovens or Consulting.com. I’m making six-figures right now and if God helps, I’ll make even more. Work on yourself guys and ignore these vultures.
Sam is one of those fake gurus who promise everyone that you’ll be a millionaire. He is getting rich off of other people’s hard work. It’s people like him who demonise the traditional 9-5 job and make it seem like it’s a bad thing to have one. I have seen some of Sam’s ads and he is just like Tai Lopez. These people use flashy cars and mansions in the background, which they have rented for a day, so they can scam innocent people like you and me. Avoid this guy.
Actually, Sam Ovens isn’t a scam. If you do the work, you will succeed – literally. IF you are seriously saying Sam Ovens is a scam, then you are saying that BUSINESS, itself, is a scam because he teaches business principles and how to apply them online… How the HECK is that a scam?
Most people “think” they want to be entrepreneurs, but can’t handle the workload, stress, or creativity needed. Honestly, don’t complain about Sam Ovens being a scam when in reality you couldn’t make your business work. It’s not Sam’s responsibility to make your business successful – it’s your responsibility. Stop playing the victim for god sakes, grow a pair, and get some grit in your life.
Full disclosure: I went through Sam Ovens Consulting Accelerator, his Uplevel Program, & his Mastermind. My company makes over 7 figures a year. I’d say that he has lived up to his claims.
Hi it’s a scam because the promises he makes are fraudulent. The reviews are curated. The time frame anticipated is inaccurate.
I took his course and have been full time doing the work for 2 years. Still living in poverty.
If you believe in this non-sense then you kinda deserve to get scammed at this point.
I was once the same fool I’m talking about. I bought the consulting accelerator program thinking that that will be the turning point in my life. However, all Consulting.com and Sam Ovens did was upselling me until I had no money left, then they told me to start hustling.
I had no freaking money left to start a reasonable business. I didn’t ask for a refund as I’ve already gone through the full modules and felt it would be cheap to get a refund.
Overall I don’t think anyone should fall for Sam’s fancy ads or relatable script anymore, its 2021 people, wake up!
These fake gurus are a disease. They keep propping up out of the ruins of society and target the most vulnerable people out there. These are snake oil salesmen who claim to make you rich beyond your dreams within a few weeks.
Just go to his website, Consulting.com and you’ll see what I’m talking about. He shares the stories of several people who have become millionaires through his course and claims that you can get the same results if you put in the effort. This is just laughable. To simplify, Sam is saying that if you pay him several thousand dollars, you can become a millionaire. Doesn’t it sound outrageous? If it was really this easy to become a millionaire, everyone would have been doing it. I’m telling you, if we don’t do anything about these fake gurus, these guys will become the biggest issue of our society. It’s because of these people that many young people don’t focus on their careers. They look down on the traditional 9-5 jobs because they think they will get super rich because they are following the advice of someone like Sam Ovens. However, those people only ruin their careers and harm the society. Those people aren’t at fault too. Gurus like Sam Ovens focus on them specifically because they are the easiest people to manipulate.
I’m happy you shared Coffee’s video on Sam Ovens, love his content. That guy is doing God’s work indeed and needs all the support he can get.
If Sam has scammed so many people, they should file a class-action lawsuit against him. I don’t see any other way to counter these scammers. Then again, Sam must have an army of lawyers ready to counter anything like that. Still, I would advise you guys to look for legal ways to fight these scammers. It would at least help you get some financial returns on your efforts cuz I don’t think this guy would come to his senses and issue you your refunds.
I remember posting a complaint on this guy on another review site. Now it’s gone.
This guy is definitely a scam. The way he operates and tries to silence critics is horrible. I had some trouble getting a refund from Consulting.com and when these people didn’t respond to me, I thought the best course of action would be to post a complaint about it.
However, these people didn’t respond to my complaint either. Then, a few weeks later, I couldn’t find my complaint anywhere. Sam Ovens needs to answer some serious questions, but I don’t think he ever will.
I’m one of those thousands of customers who bought Sam’s course. Trust me, it’s a piece of junk, nothing else.
The course doesn’t teach much and after going through half an hour of the material, you’d realise that you have been scammed.
Sam tries deceive people into thinking he is some sort of a genius and has found the Way of making money but he is just another fake guru scamming people like you and me. I had tried to get a refund from Consulting. com but they didn’t respond to my request. I can’t explain for how long I waited to get a refund from Sam.
But when I didn’t get any legitimate response for weeks, I realised that Sam Ovens had just scammed me. Please don’t buy his course people, it’s not worth it. He is ripping you off.
