Stripped Down Profits Review

This is not a review of Stripped Down Profits – this is me giving you my opinion on the sales page. I haven’t seen or used the product they are selling, but if the sales page is anything to go by, stay well clear of it.

Start of meaningful words.

Sometimes in life all you need is a break.

A chance encounter with a stranger could change your life forever.

You could be working in a strip club, and a client comes along, gives you money, and you show him boobies (.) (.) roflcoptorpmslw00tetc

But this client isn’t any client, he just happens to be a top secret internet marketing guru ninja.

You ply this unnamed ninja guru with more booze, drugs and boobies than his mind can handle, and you then threaten to show his wife and kids the implicating video of said debauchery if the guru ninja doesn’t show you how to make a billion dollars on the internet.

As I said, sometimes all you need in life is a break.

And well done to the delightful Haley Milano for seizing her break with both hands.

Not only did she blackmail (yeah…she went there) a successful guru into giving her all his secrets, she then used those secrets to become an overnight Clickbank millionaire at the touch of a button.

But that’s not all, this girl just can’t stop giving….sorry, bad turn of phrase.

She’s decided that “Doing nothing but figuring out how to spend your money and avoid paying taxes” sucks….sorry, cheap joke, that’ll be the last of them, so she’s selling the “1 touch money making software” that she’s using to crank out millions of dollars on auto-pilot.

And get this, she’s selling it for just $47, what a gal, I wonder if she’d marry me.

Hmmm, but wait a minute, I’m having pre-wedding jitters.

After commission and Clickbank fees, Hayley will only be getting around $20 per sale, and imagine the amount of support she’ll have to do.

Why would she want to make $20 per sale selling her 1 touch millionaire making software, when she could carry on using the software herself to churn out the wonga.

Maybe my jitters are right, I need to do more research before asking her to become Mrs Thompson.

So I’ll start with the sales page.

And before I go on, full credit to everyone in this forum thread who has done some digging on the product, I don’t deserve full credit (if any) for the detective work below.

The first thing that catches my eye is that Haley used to work in Spearmint Rhino’s before getting her break, that doesn’t bother me at all, I would have no issues marrying a stripper. Moving on.

I prefer Stringfellows

I can see that she also likes pancakes, I like pancakes too, maybe she is “the one”.

Hmmmm, but then she says that her personal chef cooks them for her every morning. That sounds a little bit lazy to me, but we all have our flaws. I can live with her being a little bit on the lazy side.

Do you want a Haley Milano pancake?

As I scroll further down the page, I see that Hayley Milano (google approves of my misspelling) has posted a picture of some gurus enjoying a few drinks in what I assume must be some sort of private party.

Turns out these aren't actually gurus

If I right click on the image and look at the file name, it looks to be a picture of a bachelor party in Atlantic city. Apparently there isn’t a Spearmint Rhino club in Atlantic city, Haley must have got that picture off a friend or something.

Or maybe she’s just using a stock photo to represent what a group of Gurus sipping a few drinks MIGHT look like.

Because if you do a search for “Bachelor party atlantic city” on Google images, the very same picture comes up, and can be found on the following site:

They must’ve nicked that picture off Haley’s page, the swines.

Never mind, I can understand Haley using a stock photo to represent what gurus drinking MIGHT look like, it makes sense, I might even start looking for honeymoon destinations….

I’m getting excited now, carrying on down the page I can see this:

Haley milano fake house?


She is the girl of my dreams, if she got her parents a house just because they produced her, what will she buy the love of her life….I want a plane and a dolphin please Haley Milano of Stripped Down Profits. (in that order)

Just out of interest, I think I’ll right click on the image of her parents house, then do a search for the filename on Google images…

Hmmm, that’s strange, Haley’s parents house looks exactly like this one:

I live in a house, a very fake house in the countrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry

Maybe there’s an innocent explanation for this, maybe instead of taking an actual picture of the house, she decided to use one off a website to represent the house. Yeah….that makes sense, I wonder what sort of ring she’ll like, probably something big and tasteless.

WOW, not only did she buy her parents a house, she then retired at 29 and bought herself what looks like a god awful apartment, and she then created her own range of designer handbags.

Stripped Down Profits Fake Sales Page

Again, just out of interest I’ll do an image search for the filename of Haleys house…….WAIT A MINUTE, WHAT IS THIS:

Thanks for breaking my heart Haley Milano

Out of the first 18 search results for “29399440.JPG”, 15 of them are Haleys house. How strange is that.

A little bit more reading leads me to this page:

Haley Milano lives in an apartment that cost $25m – the most expensive home EVER in the history of Brooklyn??

Hmmmm, that smells just a bit fishy to me, she lives in a $25m home, but is wasting her time selling software for $20 on clickbank?

My Conclusion: I’m not going to ask Haley Milano to marry me, I feel I can do better

My Other Conclusion

Anyone with an ounce of sense can see the sales page is 100% fiction – the story is fake, Haley Milano is fake, the images are fake, so how did it get past Clickbank and why are people promoting it?

I haven’t sold a product of my own on Clickbank for years, but when I did the approval process was a nightmare, if the wording of the page was even a little bit iffy, they’d make you change it. So how can a product like this get past the review team, and didn’t the American Government bring in some kind of legislation to stop these kind of sites?

When did copywriting amount to lying?

Update 16th March 2011

The sales page has since been taken down, but don’t worry, you can view a copy of the full “sales page” here:

(Link to the full sales page at the bottom of the post)

P.S. Anyone wanting to get this “review” to the top of Google, I’d appreciate if you’d link back with the anchor text “Stripped Down Profits Review”, lets see if we can’t do a bit of fake sales page exposing for the greater good. It’ll be good karma and stuff.

    ha ha… the best post of the year so far Dan. I can’t believe Click-bank ever approved such a “striking” product.

    This is what damages the market place with these types of products, wouldn’t like to see her email “refunds” she will provably have to come back from retirement to mange the volume of support tickets.

    PS. Great detective work there columbo lol

    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      The only post of the year ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I was actually going to mention Columbo in the email I sent out, but thought I’d stick with the female theme so went for Jessica Fletcher, can’t beat a bit of Murder She Wrote!

  2. Robert says:

    You ARE the man Dan! I couldn’t believe someone went out and finally just said it about this Haley Milano girl. I never read the copy on the sale page; only listened, partially, to the video. I just had to laugh how ridiculous it was and wondered what’s she selling? Because it looked to me it was herself! LOL!

    However, you missed the biggest one of all. You see, I’m on several mailing lists gathering info to learn from and maybe get hooked up with a good product, service or software I just can’t do without. So, with that said, it wouldn’t be surprising that I received the same offer from several people. What you missed though is that Ms. Milano has drastically changed her appearance since the site first went up. You see, that’s NOT the same woman I saw a few times before. The gal there now is a different person!

    Glad to see someone came out and finally just spoke their mind because I was thinking the same thing.

    Take care,


    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      I think it’s the same woman, I noticed today that the video changed from the 1st one I saw, but I’m pretty sure it’s the same Haley, just in a different position…sorry, I inuendo’d again ๐Ÿ™

      I think I prefer Haley v1.0, Haley v2.0 looks a bit more shiny but she’s got some terrible bags under the eyes.

    • jeremy dyer says:

      Thank you so much for your information.I have only been trying the affiliate marketing thing for about for months now, and have realized that there are alot of those type people as well as web sites all over the place. It all but deterred me from the profession.I don’t believe in cheating people or selling bs type products.Thank fully i found groups like yours to help with quality practice and info .THANK YOU so much.I started yournowonblast@twitter 2 days ago so i had a place to call out all of the people like the ones your describing, and it is a beautiful thing that you are doing.I have limited experience with the computer though if i can help in any way i gladly will

  3. James Elliott says:

    Hi Dan,
    Yes I have seen the sales page once and I have also received it from several different marketers but don’t remember which ones and can’t check to find the ones because when the video hit my screen I hit the X in the red square and the delete on the email.

    The delete button finger has been working real good on the crap and the same ole BS I have a free gift easy to get just opt in here to my ad swap buddies list so he.she can send you more ad swap opt in here, opt in there to get every thing.

    I haven’t bought any of this crap for a while and I quit the opt in just about down to 100% I have been on some list for over two years. most of them are selling products that with a Social Security budget I can’t even think about getting and I am having to opt in to their list again ot to one of their other list to get it. No thanks

    Thanks for the post and showing how these people are not interested in telling the trouth. It is all about the money. They don’t care if it will even work. They just wan’t the money so they can do the screen shots where you can see how rich they are getting ripping people off and taking their money. They sleep good at night too.

    Happy middle of the week and thanks,


    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      Rather than deleting it would probably pay dividends to hit the un subscribe link before deleting the mail, at least that way you wont get anymore crap from them.

      As you say, it’s a vicious circle – get on one list, they tell you to get a free product by joining their friends list, and it goes on and on, and before you know it you have a hard drive full of junk and an empty bank account!

  4. Linda says:

    Dan, this post had me in stitches. I also received the infamous? stripper turned megamillionaire sales page from a couple of “marketers.” The delete button is my favorite key on the keyboard.
    All I could think of after reading this tripe…was “Good God what’s next?” That’s not copywriting…just plain old BS. Even the fairy tale Gods are red faced. LOL.
    Thanks for the laugh-a-thon.


    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      Glad you liked it – I actually enjoyed writing it, so from a purely selfish point of view I kind of wish their were more Haley Milano’s around, it’d give me something fun to write about ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. JoelinPDX says:

    This is just so typical of the crap that is being promoted online these days. Yep,just remember everything you are being urged to buy is crap… except for my product. My product is the real deal. What BS!

    I almost think that anyone stupid enough to fall for this crap deserves what they get…which is of course, nothing. I think I’m going to delete my Clickbank account and remove all of their ads from my sites. If this is even what one in 100 CB products is about…that’s one in 100 too many.

    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      Judging by the Clickbank gravity stats there are a lot of people stupid enough to buy it, I think it comes down to desperation, a lot of people are desperate to make money and “marketers” see that and take advantage of them.

      The desperate customer will switch off any form of logical thinking because rich marketer Joe Bloggs tells them to do (or buy) something, it’s highly immoral and unethical but what can you do to stop it, other than not buying the products?

  6. John Reed says:

    Hey Dan – first the important stuff – have you got any waist size 40 in those amazing styles you’re selling!!?????

    Now – good ole home-town Hayley/Haley – however she, or her alter-ego, spells it – goes something like a Comet anyway, or so I’m led to understand !! hehehe

    I haven’t used the delete button UNTIL AFTER I found and used the UNSUB first. What a load of baloney, and I only saw one girl (mainly because I bailed out even before the video loaded).

    Well done indeed for researching it like you have, it certainly proves the point and I am of course quickly using all those images for my next Dating Effort……
    If they appealed to Hayley, then just imagine what the response might be……. Don’t tell Jean though or she might tear out my dongle and mangle it!!

    What a shame for her folks though, having to show visitors around their new home every day, and put up with the permanent fragrance of hot coffee and newly baked bread!!!! Life’s just not fair.

    Keep it up, the search for a lovely rich pancake eater I mean!!


  7. Pat Graham says:

    Well Dan…you never fail to amaze me with the stuff you can find to write about. I’m a ghostwriter and cannot find anything to top this post. I was searching the web for a wedding present between paragraphs, but not now.

    I do like the pancake photo…very tasty looking. Walnut pancakes? Send me the recipe and I will make them and think about you with the call girl?…stripper?…fantasy person?
    I do lose track easily.


    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      To be honest Pat I just don’t know anymore, they could be walnut, they could be something else, they may not even be pancakes at all, I just don’t know what screenshots I can trust anymore ๐Ÿ˜€

    • jeremy dyer says:

      i have a topic to write about involving one of the largest sports in our country.a bunch of the dirty secrets and truths about the exclusive secret sport . Im just not a writer , and wouldn,t know where to start . though i promise the story and content would be huge.If your interested please contact me.

  8. Michaela says:

    So, Dan I was laughing from top to bottom, I am sure Jessica Fletcher is smiling at you… and she is proud of you… Columbo is probably jealous…
    You just prove a great point that the “gurus” will sink the beautiful boat of Internet marketing, you make a great case of it, and yes, the feeling of fake is in 70% of the sale pages. There is a theory that the long sale pages will die and short amatorish sale page are as good… and nobody states why? It is because the learning curve is done and a lot of people start to feel the fake staff…
    Thanks Dan you make my day.
    All the best

  9. Dan,

    This really made me smile. So tongue in cheek I could almost see it through the monitor screen! I haven’t heard of this product til now but then I guess I have unsub’d from a lot of lists lately. And being sick and tired of the press button easy type of products, I would’ve closed this web page rather than read it even if I had heard of it. Glad you didn’t, or we would’ve missed this!

    And how many exit splashes did it have I wonder? Counted 9 NINE!! on one I landed on a couple of months ago.



  10. Julie says:

    LMAOROFL!!! Okay, I think I want to marry YOU! Maybe you can make us millions with your creative salescopy and humorous fictional stories, and then we can buy a fancy house for us! LOL

    Your post is so much BETTER than mine on this product! I left out the hilarious anecdote! I didn’t even dig that deep to find these pics! Ha – good for you!

    I am confused about the Clickbank thing, too. This is the stuff that pushes me back towards just being a freelance writer and forget about the whole IM world! UGH!

    • Dan says:

      My 1st marriage proposal of the day, why thankyou, I’m honored ๐Ÿ˜€

      It does leave you wondering if the IM niche is imploding on itself, to be perfectly honest I’m glad I got out of it when I did. I only dabble in it now and again but it ain’t like it used to be!

      /plays violin

  11. Omar Martin says:

    Spot on. I’m sick and tired of scum bags like this destroying our industry. Did you see the wall of shame on his JV page?

    I lost respect for quite a few marketers when I saw that JV page. I contacted 3 of them myself and they didn’t even know Ori had put them on there (typical) so they had him remove them.

    Scammers like this are one of my main motivators for creating

    Thanks again for a great educational and entertaining post Dan.

    • Dan says:

      I hadn’t seen the JV page before, although the “respected marketer” I did get a mail off promoting the product isn’t actually on the list.

      I guess we must all be looking at a different sales page to the creator of the product:

      “It’s so powerful, and emotionally engaging, that your customers will have no choice but to whip out their credit cards, and buy this.”

      Also, thanks for the link on Facebook – just seen it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. It was one of those things that when I saw the whole ad, it just looked totally wrong and contrived. I’ve seen this being pushed by numerous marketers, but none of the big guns. That was some investigating you did, and a good lesson to all of us to not believe things if they don’t seem believable. I for one am pretty tired of seeing all the photoshopped megamillions in one month sort of products for $37. If it is so successful, why are they going to dump it on the market for so little? And why all the mystery surrounding exactly what the product is and what it does? I personally would be embarrassed to promote such a product. It would be interesting to see how high the refund rate is on it……

  13. Nicely exposed Dan.

    As awful as all of this is, the undercurrent of resistance is building.

    Even a couple of years back you didn’t see blog posts like the one you’ve written here.

    Every where I go now I run into new people, decent marketers wanting to take a stand against this crap. We’ve got a long way to go but progress is gradually being made.

    Did you see the big “getfbadsfree” scam offer on CB? 90% sure it’s been booted now – Clickbank disallowed it. Apparently they’re shutting merchant accounts when refund rates get too high.

    As long as we all keep writing posts like this, keep these discussions coming, there will be a sea change.

    (I feel like some kind of white Martin Luther King of internet marketing right now… but that’s another matter).

    thanks again mate,


    • Dan says:

      I agree, there are a few well known sites out there that have gone a long way to exposing a lot of the nonsense that goes on in the “industry” and I think slowly but surely people are starting to catch on.

      To be honest I’ve never heard of getfbadsfree, I do barely any IM’ing now and am only on a handful of lists so I don’t get the joys of seeing a lot of the latest and greatest crap to hit the market.

      Good to hear that Clickbank pulled that one down, I wonder if they’ll do anything about Stripped Down Profits though, judging by the gravity it’s selling well, so unless there is a very high refund rate I can’t see them killing the golden goose!

    • jeremy dyer says:

      This is another program i signed up for , and am documenting every up sell , lie , cheat , and crook method they are using.I am doing a few of the other programs the same way.That way i can fully expose them to honest people in hopes that to some small degree even though i am completely new to the whole internet marketing thing I might be able to warn a few honest good people that respect your industry from ruining it and peoples lives with there bs.

  14. Awesome and funny post.
    I agree with the others that stuff like this is an increasing problem in IM, but hopefully we’ll get rid of the guys blatantly lying like this.

    Have a great day!


  15. Jacinta D says:

    Hi Dan,

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry! ๐Ÿ™

    The irony here is I was a stripper!! Did it for nearly 15 years in my early adult life! I quit when I fell pregnant nearly 5 years ago and knew it was about time to change my life for the future of my child. Plus I chose to study while doing that industry. Yes I know all strippers are studying! ๐Ÿ˜†

    To tell you the truth I don’t even want to look at the sales page. I have been avoiding it because I know it is putting genuine people from that industry in a bad light.

    And to tell you the truth I don’t ever want to meet the creators of that website because I certainly would want to put a 6 inch high stiletto where the sun doesn’t shine!

    I do hope one day I will be able to say “X stripper makes millions” but my catch cry will also say it took a lot of years, money, time and late nights of hard work and determination.

    Hope all is great.


    Jacinta ๐Ÿ˜€

    An angry x stripper that is really peeved with those sleazy guru car salesman internet marketers. This reminds me of hearing about the marketing conventions that actually hire the strippers to go to the after parties and be seen there to entertain the guru marketers.

    Have you heard of those parties happening? One guru I know proudly promotes this!!!!!!!

    ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

    • Dan says:

      Hi Jacinta,
      You were obviously far too ethical during your time as a stripper, you should have gone down the blackmail route…then you could be living in a $25m apartment in Brooklyn, lol

      Yeah, I’ve heard of those parties. I guess it’s the only way they can get good looking girls to hang round with them ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Jacinta D says:

        ๐Ÿ˜† Yes on the ethical side! A stripper with morals is a rare breed!

        And ๐Ÿ˜† on “I guess itโ€™s the only way they can get good looking girls to hang round with them :D”

        I think you are right on that one there. The sad thing is that the poor guys that go to these conventions actually think the girls are there because they want to be. ๐Ÿ˜† Yeah right!

        I definitely do not want to meet those people. They suck big time.

        OK so now I am on a mission to be the actual real “X stripper to make millions!”

        ๐Ÿ˜† God knows how long that will take! ๐Ÿ˜†


        Jacinta ๐Ÿ˜€

        P.S Thank you for the giggle! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Taco says:

    hey dan,

    great post, it has been a long time that I have read a whole sales page but when I got this one I have read it from top to bottom, just for the funny story. Interested what will be next. ๐Ÿ˜›

  17. Chris Egan says:

    It it smells like BS it usually is.

  18. Peter Downs says:

    Very funny Dan – but I still don’t want to marry you. Mind you, I’d probably put you a few notches above whats-her-name! Hope people don’t get too cynical though – there are some good guys out there – mostly on this page! Good for us!

  19. Hi Dan,

    What can I say – Fantastic post!

    So much so that I forgot to comment and immediately added a link to the post into an email I was sending yesterday….lol

    So I hope you got some of my readers and entertained them as much as I was ๐Ÿ™‚

    On the darker side – What the heck is it with Clickbank these days?
    Good products have to be tweaked and adjusted to get a look in for acceptance, and stuff like this gets straight in???
    As for those promoting it….. DUH – Unsubscribe is the only way to go!

    I did see Omar mention this on Facebook – though he refused to link to it…. – That said – It was an easy guess once I started getting the emails…lol

    I too hope there are more products like this to come! (Just so you’ll blog more often…hehe)


    • Dan says:

      Hi Randy,
      Thanks for the link in your email, and on Facebook, it’s appreciated!

      We have made it to page 2 on Google for “stripped down profits review” so the linking certainly helps ๐Ÿ™‚

      I do think Clickbank must have one rule for one and one rule for another, based on past performance on their network. If an affiliate is brining in big money for them, then I think it’s highly likely that they wont get such a rigorous check on the sales pages before they go live.

      I remember when I first listed the Boomerang List Builder on Clickbank, they approved me, but then suspended the account 2 days into the launch because my product had the word “List Building” in the title.

      I should have called it the “Boomerang Stripper Brooklyn Apartment 1 Click Low Cut Dress Means To Financial Freedom Builder” – that would have surely got through the checks.

  20. Gillian says:

    Is this the new way of marketing Sex on Legs.
    You can keep it!
    Well done for all your research, brilliant detective work and many thanks for the warning!

  21. Funny how a few clicks can lead us astray so easily ๐Ÿ™‚

    There we were happily updating our FB Fan Page and saw a comment on one of our contacts which led to another link which led to here … 30 minutes later and we are now leaving this comment!

    Couldn’t agree more with the resume here and there is so much crap being touted lately and ‘supported’ by some of the bigger Gooroo names out there … do they actually read the stuff?

    Shame really especially as we have just started to make progress online and feel that it could all get washed away in a sea of disillusionment by the masses revolting against ‘all’ IM stuff be it good or bad.

    At least all of the “push button = $millions next week” sales pages have the same look, feel and price points so are getting easy to spot ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you sell all your jeans?

    Gary & Val

    • Dan says:

      Hi Gary/Val,
      To my immense shock, 8 of my for sale items already have bids on them, it’ll be sad to see the clothes that have been sat in the back on my wardrobe for all these years going to a new home ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. Bill Davis says:

    Deception is a hard game to win consistently. It’s a little surprising that those guys didn’t change file names and descriptions…that would have been really easy.

    I hope somebody “swipes” that sales letter and associated images to save for posterity.

    It will also serve as a brilliant reminder of why the folks at Clickbank will *burn in hell.*

  23. David Taylor says:

    Hi Dan, great post.

    I went to see the sales page for a laugh but unfortunately it is ‘Sold Out’ due to overwhelming response.

    That’s a first for a CB launch isn’t it? I’ve never seen one sold out despite the fact most only have 200 available.

    I wonder if there is another reason it is no longer for sale???

    All the best,


  24. Donald says:

    Hi Dan,

    Good post, that’s a name to remember. Imagine. I clicked on the link on your post and took me to her page. It read “SORRY, DUE TO THE HIGH DEMAND “STRIPPED DOWN PROFITS” IS SOLD OUT AT THIS TIME. Cheeky git. Well done Dan.


  25. You crack me up Thompson, you really do!

    On a more serious note, it’s about time these guys become exposed at being the frauds they really are. So in fact should the guys who promote them! It’s a complete load of BS in the highest form.

    Sh*tbank I mean Clickbank really need to get a grip and sack the guy thatโ€™s taking the back handed payments for letting this crap slide!

    Cool post Dan, nice one! ๐Ÿ˜€

  26. Omar says:

    I made a video that addresses this issue.
    Please feel free to watch it and leave a
    comment telling me what you think:

    It’s time the good guys take a stand.


  27. Tim Mitchell says:

    Hi Dan,
    Awesome post, made my day reading all this. I purchased the product myself along with the other 40+ products on clickbank that had come out since October 1st 2010.

    I can do that and not worry about losing the money, NO I am NOT in anyway a guru, to be honest, not sure I would ever want to be known as one of them. I personall own a Factory making parts for the big 3 automaker’s, along with a few other business’s.

    There was a comment on here about all the support that she is or may be handling, LOL, she is NOT answering ANY email’s concerning support, never has from day 1.

    It was bought to my attention over the weekend that she was seen in the “Spearmint Rhino” on Friday night.

    On another note: “IF” you watched the video all the way through you noticed that she stated thet you could set your clock for 1 hour and see the money come in, that is SOOO far from the truth, it is STUPID, the software does not work, for 2 google will not allow same site’s up, well they will not land on page one of google, that is how you get traffic, That is how it is done on the inside, once you get in, everyone that buy’s into it will use one of 10 template’s and so on to make money, although the softwar DOES NOT work on the site as it is suppose to, that is everyone’s complaint on the site.

    Evryone that I can see from the site has been asking for refunds through clickbank.

    Thank’s for the digging information on the photo’s, that is very interesting and good to know.


    • Dan says:

      Hi Tim,
      Thanks for the info on the software, as I said, I hadn’t bought the product so can’t comment on that aspect of it.

      I saw a very funny quote about the “1 click” software a couple of days ago, it was something along the lines of:

      “What happens if I make a mistake and push the button twice instead of once, do I make more or less money???” ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I just love how bogus this is. Saw your post on WF and came over to read your review. Loved it!

    You know the ONLY thing that is ruining the humor of all this is that they apparently are making a killing on this based on the CB gravity rating for this (before they closed it, anyway.)

    I wonder if this is like so many others where the main (cheap) product is through clickbank, then the upsells are NOT? Seems like people are complaining about not being able to get their upsell money back. If you took both, I understand that to be $500 worth of upsells!


    Most definitely unsubscribing from everyone who promoted this to me.

    Thanks again.

    • Dan (el_passo) says:

      Someone posted a link to the JV page in one of the earlier comments, and the upsells are listed as:

      “The PROVEN Sales Funnel

      Here’s our sales funnel for this launch…

      Front end: $47 – Membership site containing 1 click software, and traffic training.

      Upsell 1: $197 – Auto traffic software… (one that actually works even with 1000s of people using it)

      Upsell 2: $67 Recurring – Membership site providing different ways to make money every single month.”

      So the best part of $400, then $67 per month recurring.

      Does anyone who did purchase remember if the upsells were sold via Clickbank or a different payment gateway?

  29. Hi Dan

    First time here, just followed your link from Randolf Smiths site.

    He said you were having bit of Rant on the launch of the latest hype filled clickbank launch… Yep it is the same one I received numerous emails about.

    Its shocking the type of rubbish thats being promoted, I have been through clickbanks product process and they really were picky…luck of the draw!!!

    Hi Dan,

    I followed your PM to me here from the Warrior Forum.

    Yeah, I did some detective work on this dog-poo sales page and posted it on the WF (along with dozens of others) coz I was so outraged at the blatant lies I found. It’s WAY past time for these massive fraud sites to be stopped dead in their tracks.

    I went to the JV link you supplied above to see who the people were who were supposedly “on board” to promote this rubbish and I actually got a shock. Here’s the list:

    Adam Short, Rick Thomas, Huey Lee, Tim Bekker, Mike Auton, Dan Brock, Bill McRea, Steven Johnson, Jesse Regan, Corey Lewis, Winter Valko, Chris Freville, Jani G, Anik Singal, Mark Anastasi, Michael Jones, Adam Spiel, Jeff Paul, Ian Ross, Craig K, Big John, Cindy Battye, Chris X, Paul & Antonio, Merlin Holmes, Rob Benwell, Dr. Suzanne, Alan Maglioca, Scott Marlow, Jason Parker, Alvin Huang, Imran S, Fabian Tan, Ivan Georgiev, Dylan Loh, Andrew Fox, Mike Samspson, Chloe and Letian, Patrick Coffey, Michael Beeson, Justin Michie, Blake Barret, Jerome Chapman, Bobby Walker, and more…

    While many of those names didn’t surprise me one little bit – because they would promote dog turds rolled in chocolate and pass them off as Cadbury Favorites – two did. Adam and Alvin are friends of mine and they are decent guys. So, WTF were they THINKING?

    Also on that JV page and I quote:

    “I wanted to raise the bar so high, and make it one of the BEST, top quality products that ANYONE has ever bought. So I hired an entire programming team, and had them build a ‘1-click’ software that creates 9 different income streams in the 3 biggest niches online.”

    Raise the bar? LOL! Poor choice of words for TWO reasons. Top quality product? Even BIGGER LOL!

    And then:

    “Also, I just saw the angle for the sales letter, and it’s something that’s NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE in the industry. It’s so powerful, and emotionally engaging, that your customers will have no choice but to whip out their credit cards, and buy this.”


    It gets even more incredible:

    “So, with all the superstars on board… the amazing product… world class copywriter… and all the testing we’ll be doing before launch… rest assured, this will baby will convert, and will be one of the most talked about launches in 2011.”

    Superstars? Amazing product? World-class shape-shifter… I mean… copywriter? Well, he got TWO things correct. That baby DID convert. It converted 1,000’s of people into total disbelievers. And…

    … it sure will be one of the most talked about launches in 2011 – for all the WRONG reasons.

    The entire project was a sin from the opening word to the last.

    This sort of deception and blatant lying has only strengthened my resolve to release two PDF’s virally across the IM spectrum:

    1 – “How NOT to Be an Internet Marketing ZOMBIE” (ie all the lost souls who choose to promote JUNK like this)


    2 – “How NOT to Be an Internet Marketing VAMPIRE” (ie all the blood-suckers who create trash like this)

    When I let those two PDF’s loose EVERYONE will know all the dirty, greasy, sh*tty tactics used by those who have no conscience and whose ONLY quest is to rip decent people off.

    Sorry for the length of this post Dan but this sort of thing REALLY aggravates me. It is what is destroying the industry and causing the masses to disbelieve everything and everyone. It has to STOP!

    • Dan (el_passo) says:


      Let me know when the PDF’s are done, I’ll stick them up for download on here.

    • Glen Merrick says:

      Gary, thank you for sending me here and Dan thank you for exposing this.
      I totally agree that it is time all this crap was stopped and having read Gary’s 2 books already, (thanks for writing those mate) then all I can say too anyone that does not read them and follow them, then they are about you.

      It is great to see more people coming out with these trusted sites like Dan and Gary are.

      Thanks again Guys, you are both very much appreciated by all honest Marketers.

      • Gary Simpson says:

        Thanks Dan for that nice accolade above.

        @ Glen – the good guys in IM need to rally together and support all that is good in IM and REJECT all that is bad. I’m going to do a blog post of my own a bit later on and I already have the title: “2010 – The Year of Internet Marketing Deception.”

        Things are in need of rapid CHANGE to bring honor back to IM. At the moment it is just chock-full of zombies and vampires plying their sh*t on anyone they can trick or deceive.

        It’s just NO GOOD. And in the end the FTC will just come in and apply the sledgehammer to everybody.

    While I was laughing, I felt bad for the people who put their last dimes into a product like this.
    I will never consider myself an “IM’er” because of stuff like that. I make money online and do market online, but I practice eCommerce. Is ANYONE going to bring professionalism back?
    My idea, give everyone a very very basic business quiz (common sense stuff, pre- intro to management type of stuff).
    Sorry for the rant, I know way too many people who bought into stuff like that and got burnt off it.
    Awesome way to lighten an extremely dark situation Dan…..


    PS I don’t look like a monster but wouldn’t want to break anyones monitors ๐Ÿ˜‰

  32. James says:

    Shame, she seemed like such a nice girl. NOT! While I could tell this was a crap product based on the over the top story, many people were taken in with a gravity of over 200 the week of release.
    Too many people who should have known better promoted this to their list when they should have had a look first to see whether Stripped Down Profits really works.

    I am keeping track of those IM’s who send me good products and those who are treating me like a dollar bill in their wallet!

  33. Dee says:

    Hi Dan
    I came here via Randys site and would like to say thank you for exposing scams like this. I am a newbie and have stopped buying anything not recommended by ethical people.
    My website is unfinished but it is ethical and guru free and will stay that way. One of my posts does say that a lot of the guru photos of houses, cars, boats etc are very similar or identical and most of them are adverts.
    If we all do this, we will hopefully put all the unethical gurus out of business.

  34. Sergio Felix says:

    Hey Dan,

    I think I’m a bit late for this party but what the hell I’ll comment anyway.

    I actually believed a FEW of these sites when I was getting started but sooner than later it all seemed too good to be true.

    After buying a few products I understood why so many bloggers would hate Clickbank and why would they instantly be turned off to see a product being sold there.

    I know CB has been putting a hell of an effort to clean up their marketplace lately but I also don’t understand how do I STILL keep seeing these kind of offers there.

    It is really insane and so bad for the IM industry that I can barely believe they are just ‘slipping by’.

    I know there has been some major recent changes like no more crossed line prizes, if you say n-copies to be sold, they will monitor how many sales you have, no more unstoppable videos and a few others I quite don’t remember right now.

    I never saw this product myself but then again, probably because whenever I saw a video on CB I left immediately.

    Keep up the good job man, got me interested in knowing more about you, take care!
