The society teaches people over how they have to direct their lives to success; if and if only the person himself/herself discovers the method to find the right direction from society. This definition might seem complicated to a lot of readers if simplified, which means that success isn’t an easy task to accomplish yet it isn’t much difficult to understand. People, unfortunately, mistook the latter part of the definition and archetype the whole foundation of the definition onto the concepts of ‘personal responsibility’. We have seen different motivational speakers constituting scam out of their conceptual and entrepreneurial startups and ideas that usually demonstrate away or aversion to “make money in no time.” These ‘entrepreneurs’ have used the concept of money and greed and combined it so smoothly forging it into another attractive feeling or a decimation that brought to them, progressive attention of people who have been focusing success conjoined with “making more money.”
Certain teachings come from different products. Such is an example of another Silicon Valley affluential, motivational speaker and a teacher to ‘success’ Alex Mehr and his’ MentorBox; a product not only having a numerous amount of business and success related books but additionally has a lot of other videos tutoring people on how to move their barrow towards the ladder of success. Wheels can never climb ladders. That is what I along with several other fools lacked at first when we came across the ad of MentorBox with Alex asking us the question of how we all have been failing our businesses. People certainly fall for advertisements. I was a live example of it.
What I got throughout the advertisements was a $7 to $9 plan with a 3 free day trial for us to test the product along with a clear indication of them delivering books to us every month. It seemed to be a low key purchase at the moment and honestly, a very great entry-level price. As I kept digging into the product and what it had to offer us, it turns out that the very “books” aren’t to be delivered to your spot. Rather certain offers were being accounted for further as we entered into the website. For me, this is nothing less than a scam to forge your product into something colossal and then unfolding newer dimensions as you get someone attracted to it. Even this ad pops and people visiting the website bring about revenue to the owners. This was nothing more than a marketing stunt at first yet the MentorBox seemed interesting which led me to move further into the system.
With initial purchases, the sales pages get more elaborative with more offers on the plate. What I eventually discovered from the tangible information presented within the sales page was that I had been paying $7-$9 for video workshops which had some lectures from some authors who have written books on leadership and success and businesses. Those lessons were, without a doubt, awful and absurd. If we judge it on the scale of teaching something specific and important regarding improving your life, these video workshops are to be dealt with the lowest grade. The content the MentorBox had to offer in the videos was gibberish with no structuring. Not only the company invited its customer with a “Free” label but also presented a completely new bill with newer rates than the expected one of few dollars. With two-step orders, the cost moved to hundreds of extra dollars. I was an enthusiast to gain more out of it. This made my overall billing cheque to exceed $190 which was completely confusing for me in every way. With just one signup and a few hours wandering over, discovering things about the site they made me pay a lot of it. This made me very clear about how ridiculous their system is.
This wasn’t the only thing that Alex Mehr had kept in his product for his customers. If some people run clear of the gibberish charges I, along with many others had to pay, they are greeted with upsells. In the funnel sequence, people come across upsells which are pretty much expensive and get stuck with it if, they accidentally get to click it with their divergent attention. We have seen a lot of scam websites using these upsells to fondue an expensive bill, in the end, to grab it out from their credit cards. Alex Mehr came up with these unethical upsells; making our point clearer of it being a complete scam. People, just like me, had to pay thousands of dollars under the name of upsells and some ‘services’ that we intended to take and under no circumstances did we get either of these services. There was nothing to the consumers who thought that clicking onto upsells would cost them hundreds of dollars.
The scam continues with its self-contemplating consumer service that they most likely regard as a very ‘responsive’ service. I was charged more than a hundred dollars of services that I had no access to and neither had I used those services to gain any knowledge. Plus the knowledge constituted in the video workshops was of no use too. With an email to the support exchange, it seemed as if they’d be responding to the complaint any time, which never came. The customer support is too lazy to even reply. Regardless of this, the clever Alex Mehr had kept no other source to connect with the support of MentorBox. These motivational speakers have nothing important to teach to the people, yet we will find extraordinary bragging of their success stories which would just be another marketing stunt in tempting people with a certain need to success. They intend to pass this concept on the minds of such people that they would always need these people in every portion of their succeeding business; hence making a one-way ticket for Alex Mehr to have his products sold under the name of teaching people the road to success.
