You know, for every phony Internet Business Mentor, there’s at least one person out there trying to expose them for who they really are.
They may not be as big as the IBMs they’re going after, but they definitely have a presence on the Internet.
You just need to know where to look. I come across some of them mainly on YouTube and Instagram.
There is one of them on YouTube, named Coffeezilla, that I check in from time to time.
And not too long ago, he posted an interesting video.
Here’s the story:
For the last two years, he’s been making videos exposing these Internet Business Mentors. Some of them are not well-known, but others have big names with followings in the millions, which I was surprised to see.
But recently, some anonymous person wasn’t fond of Coffeezilla’s content and started a whole harassment campaign targeted towards him.
He also received blackmail basically proposing that the anonymous person will take down the harassment content if Coffeezilla takes down videos about a specific person he covered.
But he refused to take down the videos that he believed to be the truth.
That’s not all, here’s more:
There was also a time when Coffeezilla received a cease and desist letter from the lawyer of a certain Internet Business Mentor that he talked about in one of his videos.
It’s amazing to see how far these IBMs are willing to go and attempt to silence the people that are trying to expose them.
This wouldn’t really be a problem for them in the first place if they did business ethically.
None of those pre-recorded webinars and products sold with fake scarcity tactics.
Let’s stop here.
