My Email Mentor is an interesting scam. Now,I rarely outright call a program a scam. If I review a product or service that is bad, I will honestly say it is. However, many folks and even scam reviewers have already lost money and time to My Email Mentor. I think I will be forgiven for being overzealous here.
Name: My Email Mentor
Founder: Bobby B?

My Email Mentor Is Still Scamming Folks
As I said earlier, My Email Mentor is an interesting scam. It uses a familiar online money marketing problem like email marketing. Not the typical over the top claims of typical quick rich scheme pitch but instead uses realistic small monetary achievements. Weaves a story about how he actually needs your help, and baits with a supposedly no brainer monetary incentive.
It is 100% completely free so put your wallet away (yeah right!). You don’t have to pay Bobby a single cent (yeah right!). In fact, Bobby is going to pay you for helping him (Warning! A lot of folks already complaining not getting paid).
How it is Suppose to Work?
Bobby, the guy who has made millions with email marketing supposedly needs your help. Every day he claims he has thousand and thousand of email leads that is put on his list. So much email leads that he has problem sending out emails as no emailer service can accommodate his one account’s huge database and bandwidth requirement.
His solution? To partition out his huge database to partners that can help send out his emails via an emailer service. Off course he going to incentivized the partners by sharing the profits that is generated as a result of the his emails being sent by partners. For each click that his links get, the partner is paid $0.20.
Bearing in mind that the email leads and email are all provided for and all the partner has to do is just send out the mail which is really pretty much automated if you use an emailer service. If the leads are supposedly hot email leads, getting 50 or more clicks per day from a email database of 10000 should be easy. Earning an easy $10 a day for just setting up an emailer service is pretty darn good if you ask me.
All you have to do to get started as Bobby’s partner is setup your email sending account with stablemailer. That will be $10 for first 10 days trial and $47 per month thereafter. This is suppose to be a “special price” that Bobby has negotiated with stablemailer for his partners. I thought everything would be free?
Well I guess it is ok to pay stablemailer since you do need a emailer service (does Bobby actually has a hand in stablemailer?). Nevermind that, Bobby is going give you $100 fast start bonus for just setting up your account with stablemailer. So $100 minus $57 equals $43 in profit already for something as simple as setting up an emailer account. Not forgetting the easy $10 dollar a day commission that will be paid by Bobby to you.
As usual, if it sounds too good to be true…
v.s. How it Actually Works
Pay close attention because everything Bobby said is an elaborate lie. No he does not have thousand and thousand of responsive email leads that he is just dying to share with you. He most certainly has no intention to pay you for clicks.The email list he sends you is obviously nonsense leads. Moreover, stablemailer is not even a legitimate emailer service provider. It was a new empty shell site sold on flippa.com 6 months back (and off course no credible emailer service provider will ever let you use their service as suggested) .
I don’t even think Bobby is his name.
Perhaps the biggest deception is letting you think he has nothing to do with stablemailer. But if you think about it, the objective of the entire “My Email Mentor” scam seems to allude to getting folks signing up and pay the monthly subscription for a stablemailer account. Would you be surprised if the syndicate behind the “My Email Mentor” is also behind stablemailer?
Even Scambusters got Scammed!
See the screenshot above? It is taken from a reviewer who ends promoting the scam. Yes, $100 commission is indeed “seen” as added on the My Email Mentor member’s dashboard after you sign up for a stablemailer account. A lot of smoke and mirror follows. Once you set up, clicks start showing up in your stablemailer account and corresponding click payment commissions also started appearing in your My Email Mentor member’s dashboard.
It had the “this is the real deal” aura going for it. Folks also started to eagerly promote their My Email Mentor affiliate link which was promised the same $0.20 per click payout plus $10 every month for members you refer who sign up and keep their stablemailer account.
There was the typical high cashout threshold of $400 set on the folks’ commission. And also the paying of some more vocal scam reviewers to manage any negative publicity being posted. All methods employed to extend the lifetime of the My Email Mentor scam and having more people pay to stablemailer.
Unfortunately, for most folks, after paying one to three months of service subscription to stablemailer, their cash out day still never came.
Scam Obviously. The way it operates kind of reminds me of the M and G Home Business scam which also involves selling of fictitious emails leads. I think this scam also highlights a fundamental difficulty for businesses which is lead generation. Which I guess explains why even scambusters got scams. It is also not hard to create such scams so watch out cause a replicate will likely surface soon under a different name.
