Joe Vitale's Adventures in Scamworld

Hello again, kids. I know. I've been missing. Actually, I've enjoyed my time away from blogger so much that I barely recognize the place. Who rearranged all the furniture?

I'm writing today because something interesting popped up in my Google alerts this morning. And I think you should read it. If you're ever considering participating in Joe Vitale's Miracles Coaching Program, please read the article.

If you are considering Prosper, Inc. and a miracles coach, please be aware of what tactics you will encounter when you are run through the "free 30-minute coaching session" that is apparently really a sales call. Your psychology will be unearthed, your unconscious beliefs exposed, and then the sales person allegedly will use those things to separate you from the money in your pocketbook or the credit on your credit cards.

If you complain about the failure of the Miracles Coaching Program to help you, you are then blamed for their experience. If you had a bad experience with Miracles Coaching, you are then told that you created it, you didn't do what you were told, or maybe you "just need to clean on it."

After all, these techniques worked for Joe Vitale. He's the one that has the car collection, right? So obviously he knows what he is talking about.

But wait a minute. Maybe he got that car collection by getting them into these programs and blaming the victims for not being able to do what he did. Kids, get a miracles coaching program if you want a car collection. Don't do what Joe says, do what Joe does.

Actually, I'm kidding about that last part. Don't be a scammer.

It is unfortunate that those in the spiritual community are brow beaten with ideas such as: don’t dwell on your mistakes or you create more of them, you are responsible for your own experience, what you say comes back to you… and all of these statements keep people in the new age/spiritual communities from coming forward and actually speaking about their experiences. They’ll vent privately, but public discussion is discouraged. After all, who wants to be told that it’s their own fault they got scammed by a boiler room?

I don't know that I believe in miracles. I certainly don't believe in Joe Vitale's miracles coaching.

I do believe that there are scammers in this world who are using the internet to sell people an unattainable dream-lie that cannot and will not happen and then separating them from their money in the process. It has happened. It is happening.

And it is time for it to stop.


  1. You go, BBF! Good to see you back. I'm getting ready to blog about this on my Whirled too. Amen about the reluctance of people who have been scammed by Buddhas of the Internet and suchlike to come forward. It's not just the guilt trips and blame they face; it's also the general belief that negativity and being "judgmental" are the marks of an unevolved soul. I say you can be evolved (however you may define that) and still keep your bullsh-t detector always on high alert. That, to me, is the true meaning of Awakening.

  2. Prosper is a load of BULLSHIT and they lock you into a contract which you can not get out of if your circumstances change and are ruthless sales people just after your money and not your well being. Its a load of horse shit!!!!!
