Ethan Vanderbuilt

Ethan Vanderbuilt MLM SCAM GURU

Ethan Vanderbuilt isn’t a leader in any company with which you’ve worked. He isn’t someone with whom you’ve worked. He isn’t even someone you know. Despite all of this, if you’re a network marketer, Ethan Vanderbuilt has cost you money.

He has effectively created an entire business on killing business for others. That’s right. He’s the “scam” guy. Ethan Vanderbuilt is the man who creates videos targeting nearly every network marketing company out there. He’s the man your prospects see online when they do their google research on your company. He’s the man who falsely claims each MLM is a scam, because he presents himself as honest, as a man out to expose the big bad scam artists… In order to take your prospects’ money for himself.

This begs the following question: what kind of person strives to make money by making slanderous remarks about mostly legitimate businesses and then refusing to accept responsibility for his claims? Many people would agree that only the worst type of person would engage in this egregious behavior. Sadly, there is a growing number of people in America who fit this profile. Many of these slanderous individuals present themselves as saviors and advocates for consumers. In reality, they are the exact opposite. Ethan Vanderbuilt is one of these people.

Ethan Vanderbuilt: A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

At first glance, Ethan Vanderbuilt appears to be an advocate for the gullible citizens who lose money by investing in MLM companies. In reality, Ethan Vanderbuilt is a self-promoting, dishonest attention-seeker who seeks to make money off the negative content he publishes in his blog. A quick glance at Ethan Vanderbuilt’s disclaimer (the last tab on his blog) says it all. Below are five things that people who read Ethan Vanderbuilt’s blog should keep in mind.

Why Does Ethan Vanderbuilt Make it his Mission to Slander Others?

When you click on the “Why I Do This” page of Ethan Vanderbuilt’s website, you may expect to gain some insight into his motivation for his slanderous remarks. No such luck. Instead, you’re bombarded with advertisements of the “tools” that are used to make Ethan Vanderbuilt’s videos, along with a video that claims to explain Vanderbuilt’s motivation.

Examining his site further, the “My Tools” page also provides no insight into any legitimate tools used to detect scams, but rather lists the various video cameras, tripods and camera accessories that Vanderbuilt says he uses to make his videos. The header reads, “The links below will allow you to find out more about each tool and purchase it on Amazon.” So, instead of gaining insight into the legitimacy of Vanderbuilt’s mission, website visitors are given a sales pitch to buy Amazon products. He also puts this excuse in plain sight. “The ads you see on this site allow me to do extensive research into these companies and share all of this information for free with you. I do not review each ad that appears. The ad providers choose ads that they feel are relevant to you and may not reflect a product or service that I would recommend.” …If only the research were truly as extensive as he claims, perhaps we would actually have someone providing legitimate company reviews, instead of someone making a lot of noise, yet serving no one.

What is the Real Purpose of Ethan Vanderbuilt’s Blog? To Make Money!

Buried deep in the disclaimer section of Ethan Vanderbuilt’s blog is the following statement: “This blog’s content is intended to generate some money.” Notice that the statement does NOT include any statement about an intention to help consumers or present truthful information. Unfortunate.

This bears a moment of attention. The primary purpose of Mr. Vanderbuilt’s blog is to make money, NOT to help others. This is also evidenced by the inclusion of multiple advertisements scattered throughout his site, interrupting his content. The combination of his inattention to the ads placed combined with the intention of making “some” money all adds up to the vision of a person with a fear-based, scarcity mindset. …Not exactly someone anyone should be listening to when it comes to business advice.

Ethan Vanderbuilt Accepts no Responsibility for the Content on his Site

Think about this: the man who supposedly seeks to reveal scams doesn’t claim any of what he posts is actually accurate information. Buried deep in the “Content Accuracy” section of his website disclaimer are the words, “…we accept no responsibility or liability for any good-faith inaccuracies on the site/blog as a whole.” This disclaimer is actually humorous, because it implies Ethan Vanderbuilt’s efforts are in good faith.

How can one source call more than sixty (yes, sixty) different, mostly ethical companies and/or people scams in good faith? Something doesn’t add up. If he actively believes every single one of these companies and people are scams, perhaps the frame with which he’s viewing everything is not of a business builder at all, but that of simply a fear monger. Perhaps he’s so failed in his own network marketing attempts that he’s resigned himself to attempting to earn affiliate income from selling his video tools on his anti-MLM website.

In another disclaimer, Ethan Vanderbuilt states, “We shall not be held responsible for anything we say.” In this vein, Ethan Vanderbuilt is refusing to take responsibility for the disparaging content that he publishes about people or businesses. …Doesn’t exactly sound like social responsibility, does it?

Ethan Vanderbuilt is the Pot Calling The Kettle Black

Ethan Vanderbuilt seems to criticize virtually every MLM opportunity that emerges, all in order to monetize visitors who are actually searching for honest reviews. When the entire site is constantly slamming every company, what you have is the kind of person preying on the very thing people want to be saved from- scammers- and Ethan Vanderbuilt is an unfortunate scammer himself. Ironic, isn’t it?

Self-Promotion, Sales Pitches and Slander: The Building Blocks of Ethan Vanderbuilt’s Website

Littered throughout Ethan Vanderbuilt’s website are large photos of himself, self-promoting statements, and invitations to subscribe to his video service. Visitors have to scroll through nearly 10 pages of material before arriving at a website page that offers some unbiased, concrete assistance.

While his website does include a page that provides instructions on filing a complaint with the FTC, this page is buried at the end of the “Scams” header of his website. The fact that this page has a low level of visibility is not surprising, since there is no money to be made by Vanderbuilt by providing assistance with FTC complaint filings.

To quote the man himself, “Do we think Ethan Vanderbuilt is a scam? Yes, we do!” We unfortunately do.

  1. Ethan is Legit. This article is full of misleading info.

    I interviewed Ethan for my business magazine. Brilliant guy and super nice. Has no underlying intentions and its not a crime to monetize your YT channel. Dude does HUNDREDS of hours unpaid so you can find out which MLMs to steer clear of. (hint: All of them, worst business model there is).

  2. It's About time!

    It’s about time we really see the type of person Ethan and many of these Anti-mlm ers really are! Thank you for posting this. Negative minds only promote more nagativity!

  3. Unmatched Resource for False Income Opportunities

    First off, I don’t know Ethan except for brief interactions on twitter and he posted two of my articles on his blog (for which I received no compensation, nor was I seeking it). He is not paying me to do this, and I will get nothing from anyone for saying this. He offers links to all his sources, which are public and others are able to check and verify the information for themselves. He does not offer income solutions to others, but seeks to prevent those offering false opportunities from exploiting ill-informed potential distributors that are drawn into businesses through trusting relationships. Ethan identifies a problem with the MLM compensation system because there is one. Every company, and especially those that are members of the DSA, operate outside the bounds of ethics if they employ a MLM business strategy. The incentives align to grow and expand with fabricated demand for product through monthly autoship programs to distributors that have almost zero luck selling the products. They are pushed to “make it work” until they just can’t anymore. The plan relies on this churn at the base, and making people feel personally responsible for their failures. The truth is in a fabricated demand market there is a zero sum benefit that accrues to a shrinking minority of people that enroll.

    Ethan has helped lead others to these conclusions, and here’s hoping true support can come from an organization that really does care for all distributors, and not just the interests of those at the top.
