Sam is legit. He is one of the smartest guys out there producing content IMO.

One thing doesn't look legit to me:


On his website he says "FREE TRIAL", you click the button, give your info, and then BAM what's yo credit card info?

At no point do you even know how much you'll get charged after the "free" trial ends. Sounds like scam marketing of the worst kind, aimed at people with short attention spans.

Nah it is fully legit. Do some homework on Sam before trying to call him a scam. Furthest thing from it actually, he is incredibly smart and his teachings are some of the best out there.
If you’re skeptical watch some of his free FB trainings on YouTube. Those free videos along are easily worth $1000+.

Ok. If it is fully legit then you should be able to show me where on his website sales page, or during the checkout process I'm told how much his course actually costs BEFORE I give my credit card details.

Are you saying I have to accept and agree that he charges my credit card after my free trial is over without knowing how much it will get charged by? That's not even legal. He plans to get me to accept that he takes an unspecified amount of money from me at a later date unless I cancel without even knowing what that amount is. THAT'S INSANE! How anyone can say that is legit is beyond me.

I fully believe that a person of his stature can afford not to resort to dishonesty to make money.

Guy drops out of college, quits his job, and starts a consulting business teaching other people how to be billionaires. Nice.

You sound like someone who is just looking to start an argument cause his style of marketing offends you. If you're so offended don't buy it, don't think about him or his program and move on. Its that simple.

Bro, it's not his "style" of marketing that offends me. His "style" of marketing is OUTRIGHT illegal. You cannot have someone make a commitment by requesting his credit card for a "trial" without letting him know in advance what the ramifications are, and what he would be automatically charged unless he cancels. That is bro-marketing as MJ or anyone else will tell you and it's most certainly in the grey area if not crossing the line.

And don't worry, I was never planning to buy it, was just curious how his funnel looks like.

Just ask @BizyDad what he would do to me if I applied such a marketing tactic...

Ok, man that is fine. Like I said it would be best to forget about it in that case and not waste any precious focus on it. It doesn't impact your life at all.

I'm watching his video for the first time and I really dig the guy. As I do with everything, I'll absorb what helps me and discard what I don't care about. No irritation in that. No CC involved. No wasting precious living moments to concern myself with what doesn't matter, what doesn't contribute to my bottom line.

Find value in the information that you seek - discard what doesn't contribute to you. If you don't like his marketing tactics, fine, don't buy his shit or put up your CC info. I don't see how his funnel has anything to do with the valuable content he makes available to you for free.
