Magic Mike

Ya 100% scam. No forum so no one can talk the scams, no training, material on the site is all old, there is no traffic, no one makes money. I lost $97 too. BUT I will file suit soon! Oh ya, he still goes by Dr. on linkedIn, he has what appears to be a photoshoped (old) picture of himself. If you search the web, you will read that he was incarcerated as well..He may have some insight to IM, but the way he goes about making his money is by scams. Stay clear and warn anyone you can.

My cousin Ruth used to date this loser. He stole money from my Uncle Fred which landed him in jail.

I never liked this guy. We tried to warn her but for whatever reason she thought she knew him better. Ruth is a smart woman but boy was she wrong about Cioppa. He's a seedy, master manipulator who preys on gullible, vulnerable people.

When in reality all he is is a greedy, unsuccessful person full or broken dreams and nixed aspirations, who attempts to project the image of the total opposite. My guess is that's how he scams people online too.

I commend all who speak out against him. The internet can be a very popular tool for spreading the word.


He's a notorious *** who memorizes just enough to sound convincing. One video he said he wants to help other people succeed because no one else is.

Give me a break! He helped lighten your wallet that's about it. Also claims to regularly pay thousands of dollars to find out what the competition is doing. He should've paid closer attention as to how they exited instead of the hocus-pocus disappearing act like one of his magic tricks.

IF he was the guru he claimed to be why would HE be spending money to find out what other people are doing? This guy is a first class LOSER!

Magic Mike Cioppa - Albany, New York

Mike Cioppa has been featured before on Pissed Consumer when he was pretending to be a doctor, "Dr. Mike" Cioppa. He has since dropped the Dr. and is now known on You Tube & Warrior Forum as "Magic Mike." In summary, what he is now offering is a pyramid scheme. One former participant called it a Ponzi Scheme: ( The crux of the scam is to offer bogus marketing information in exchange for $97.00 a month. Then new recruits are to use You Tube, Flickr, etc. to push his videos and website in order to lure more people into the scam. Once the first $97.00 is received he immediately kicks back $50.44 to the prospects to give them the false impression that it's that easy. Little do they realize he is giving them back their own money while keeping the other $46.44 for himself. Transactions are done through PayPal. An investigation should be launched into who issues statements of earnings so the proper taxes are paid on the riches to be made by Magic Mike and his cohorts. At the time of writing it appears Mike Cioppa is transitioning into his next internet venture. He appears on a website called run by Cynthia & Joe Parker from Fort Walton Beach, FL. pitching another rendition of the same scam. Whichever Parker wrote the subtext on the You Tube page claims "I have know Magic Mike a long time, and I trust him 100%." They neglect to mention if they knew Cioppa was a ex-convict who has served time in prison on more than one account for scamming people in the past.

Thanx for posting this before I signed up for this program. I had my doubts from the onset, especially when he said he would force me to make money & make money for me but I need to supplement my income and wanted this to be legit. I cut and pasted the link you furnished. Thought the subtext from Catherine Smith was as compelling as the video:

"I reviewed the IM Guerillas Elite Membership 2 weeks ago and my first impressions were pretty good. Now I have completely changed my opinion and there is no way I would recommend this product. Fingers crossed for the people that are still members that the membership site will be amazing once it is released, but it is no longer something I want to be involved with."

Thank you Ms. Smith for your posting and Google for listing towards the top of an IM Guerillas search. Also Pissed Consumer for getting the word out. I don't have disposal income to give to a scam artist.
