Sam Martin lied
I was on YouTube practicing on investing, crypto, etc. when I stumbled upon an ad. This ad was like no other and Sam was very convincing, good at explaining, and very aware of scamming someone. Hes saying that he grew up in a farm, his parents didn’t care and he progressively changed after a coach call. Now he’s a CEO of a building complex. But wait.. the name “Winners Circle” just by the name it sounds fishy.
Well.. I was getting burned out from my job at a restaurant so I thought hard about making changes. I first called Sam on October 13th, 3:20 pm when I scheduled a meeting. Sam even convinced me about taking away all distractions and we have a weekly audit plan. I did everything he wanted me to do, after I was accepted into winners circle. I joined his Facebook group, downloaded the life time course which is named “Kajabi” and I even have his phone number.
Ok Here’s what happened
First, he told me to grab a couple sheets of paper. Then, he sent me a survey through text. I took it, the questions were about how’s your life so far what will you do to change and what are you willing to do to make that happen. And lastly are you willing to put the work in. After the survey me and Sam had a 1 & 1 conversation and I enjoyed talking to him. He seemed like a down to earth person and was very opened about his personal life. I even looked into the reviews and he proved to me that people actually made 6-figures from this monthly training. He said that the course will take 8 months to complete. So now back to the piece of paper I took notes what he said. “First find the right vehicle then step 2 find the right investment.” Then I was told to process $7,000 through my bank. I asked Sam, “um why?” And he said “oh don’t worry about it this call will give you a discount so now I asked: “Am I investing this? will you help me?” He said “Yes you’re investing.” Then he laughed a bit. And me and Sam joked around for a while. After a while the bank was able to process $4,000 because that much money being bought is beyond the limit so it can’t do that much. It was weird he asked me to call the bank. Good thing I didn’t give out any personal information.
Well it was nice meeting you Sam. But after research and talking to legit people at the bank. They found out he’s a fraud and Winners Circle is not a legitimate company. I remember when my friend did some investigating. We went to their website. We called the number to ask for help in the terms and conditions. They don’t even have an address for the company. That’s not professional it’s just an automated message. A business should always mention their name!! And worse of wall the reviews are a whole setup it’s this whole triangle to setup people up, like us to get caught in a IM Acedemy. All this is belony… when we asked were the location is the dude just repeats the questions and dodge whatever questions we asked specifically. Like “we’re you guys located at.”(It’s not even a human being on the phone). Then I realized I spent $4,000 dollars on this course. We were exposing Sam and he told us “it’s a college course.” I know but why is it so much? Then later on he hanged up. After I got my money back I am now very self aware of the fact people don’t care and just want money money money. There’s very desperate people out there. Even a whole cooperation. If someone ask you for your card number DONT GIVE IT OUT, that’s a red flag. Hang up immediately. And guess what.. the life time course he said, all the courses don’t even show up anymore, after I got the money back. That’s how i know he’s officially a scammer!!!! And not just him too but everyone in his team. I do not know where this is located at because he refuses to tell us. BUT i do have the website though.
This happened long ago and I learned through it. I own 2 side businesses now and I help my parents out with bills. There’s no shortcuts to success.
