Sam Ovens

Sam's Training program is a scam

Sam ovens has lured many people for spending in his training program that helps you start a consulting firm. He started SnapInspect and is the CEO for the company.

This is a property inspection application which was created for property management companies. It helps the managers of the companies to inspect rental properties and this application can be run on smartphones or tablets.

He has started training people for opening their own consulting firm to sell his product. However, this is not that easy as it sounds.

I know it because I spent $2000 in his program just to know that it was only trash. His entire course structure was very general and can be found online without any fee. There was nothing great that he offers through these programs.

I attended Sam Ovens webinar where he talked about the program and the benefits it has. Like many other webinars, first few minutes, he focused on explaining how difficult it was to reach where he is right now and what all he had to go through.

He took more than 50% of the webinar time explaining his great journey to success. He knows how to create positivity among people to get their money later.

Then, he explained about the program in such a way that it left me intriguing. That is what he does to attract people. When people crave to learn more, they pay. Because that is the only option to know about the deal.

Leaving this program aside, one thing that Sam is good at is convincing people. His advertisement style can fool many. So, it was easy for him to get new prey. And these webinars are his way for getting people’s attention.

Many who are looking to make easy money can be convinced easily and who doesn’t want that provision where you can earn without much of an effort. This is what he vouches for.

I joined his program by paying $2000 because he mentioned about the refund policy within a month of training. He clearly said that if a person is not satisfied and is not able to get a client within that period of 30 days, the entire enrolment amount will be refunded.

It was nowhere listed on the website though. But, he tried to stress on this part a lot at the webinar. He very well understands the psychology of his clients and a refund policy is the perfect bait.

In a hope to learn something and get my career on track, I joined his training group. He maintains a private Facebook page and gives his trainees the access to join him there for learning.

I followed all the instructions and did all the assignments for three weeks. I was prompt and waiting for something that seemed fruitful. After 3 weeks, I got furious and was unable to stand even a day of his training.

To be candid, the program was all trash and there was nothing that he charged us $2000 for. I was really upset for paying him that amount. After thinking a lot, I decided to ask for a refund.

They have mentioned to mail the refund application on their email address. So, I emailed them and filled out the information to get the refund. I received an automated mail that they would revert back in 3 days. I was reaching close to the 30-day limit and these bots were assigned to make that even harder to get the refund before time.

They replied me just before the expiry of the 30 days’ time period. They asked me to submit all the assignments that I did during the first three weeks. That was mandatory to get the money back.

This they could have mentioned in the website to avoid this waiting thing. But, then they wouldn’t have got the chance to kick you out saying that the 30-day limit is over. So, without wasting my time, I tried to gather everything that I could and mailed them the documents and the proof of my efforts during the course of the program.

However, they replied with a negative response. According to them it was already over 30 days and I was not eligible for a refund. This is what I expected but still was hopeful. I generated a request far before the expiry date and it was them who replied late. So, how I was the one at the losing end.

Everything starting from the program structure to the refund policy sucks and their customer service is pathetic. They never refund and will trick you until the limit of 30 days is reached and your money is gone.

Sam ovens has created this program in such a way that he can easily make people join and even leave. But his policies are designed in such a way that one will never get access to the enrolment amount ever.

As per the 2017 report, Sam Ovens net wealth is around $12 million and he claims that 90% of his wealth comes from his consulting business. I really do not feel that his claims are true. It is just his marketing stunt. And if it stands any chance, then I am sad to know that he has scammed so many people and do not feel shame boasting about it.

Sam Ovens and his program intend to harm rather than providing any meaningful information. So, it is advisable to get some free material and also there are programs that are genuine and cheaper which are way better than the one Sam Oven sells.

I consider him a jerk and that is what suits him. He is not a sweet guy as he portrays himself but a selfish, bloodsucking pervert who is always looking to scam innocent people. No wonder why his Facebook account is private and he does not have a real customer service company rather than the bots to answer clients. Because he does not have white money to invest in that.

  1. Sam Ovens Scam

    Sam Ovens is master minded con artist who scam by selling his cheap training program

    His training program does not carry out any real life skill set, it just to scam you, avoid to buy it.

    Sam Ovens fake YES total fake!

    1. You want to sell the full course and make a little money back?

  2. Sam Ovens Review

    Sam ovens is a liar and all of his technique are useless. He took my $1500 and never returned it even after I generated the refund request before a month after registration.

    I did everything that he asked and it never helped me in any case.

  3. Sam Ovens is a scammer

    Sam Ovens cheats people through his training scam. Stay away from this guy. He should not be allowed unleashed.

  4. FYI

    Sam left SnapInspect few years have nothing to do with SnapInspect since then.

  5. Sam's Trainings Changed My Life. Highly Recommended.

    We have generated over $59,000 off of the $2k purchase price of Sam’s original Consulting Blueprint program. That’s a 29.5x ROI.

    Then we purchased Sam’s Uplevel Consulting program for $5800. Off of that purchase, through implementing his training, we have generated over $722,000 in the last 15 months. That’s a 124.5x ROI (and counting…we’re still growing month over month almost every month).

    Sam’s training is incredible. If, that is, you are an action-taker and implementer.

    1. Would actual people who benefited from Sam’s scams, sorry trainings I mean, google ‘Sam Ovens Scam’ and land on this site and fearlessly defend him? Lol

    2. It would be helpful if you would share proof of your success.

    3. Please show proof of your great success.

  6. Consulting.com scam alert

    First I want to say how embarrassed I am that I got taken by these types of people. I had just lost my IT job when I got an invite to a consulting webinar from Sam Ovens’s consulting.com. It seemed to be a great fit for my field and I had the experience necessary to technically consult already. Seemed like a slam dunk…

    I watched the ~90 minute webinar where every promise under the sun is made. “110% money back guarantee”, “$2000/month client in the first 30 days or your money back…”, “anyone can do this if they follow my steps”, etc. It was stated over and over again how ironclad their guarantee was. I signed up for the monthly installment plan after confirming via webinar-chat with their associate that I would be able to have the first month refunded in the event that Sam’s claims did not hold up for me. Again, “30-day risk free guarantee” seal on the payment page.

    I went through every single piece of material in about 21 days completing the worksheets as I went. I won’t go into specifics for fear of defamation litigation (google it, Sam does this), but suffice it to say that the overall premise is: find a niche, market it, sell it. The entire “Consultant Accelerator” course was a sales and marketing class with the addition of finding a niche. I can see how in certain cases this may work for people. However it doesn’t fit with my field (IT) nor my wifes (pet care) considering both are niched to the max as it is. The course also relied heavily on Facebook solicitation (to friends and family as well as strangers) and other practices I disagree with on principal. I decided to call it quits.

    I emailed the refunds department on day 21 or 22 saying I wanted out and that I completed the worksheets should they require them. I got an alert
    a bit later while away on business that Sam Ovens had charged another $597! I immediately disputed the charge with my credit card as well as the original $597 that they apparently hadn’t refunded yet.

    A month and a half later I got a call from my bank saying that Sam Oven’s was challenging my dispute and provided all sorts of documentation saying the charges were valid. I then searched my email for the chain with their refund department and found it in my spam folder ([email protected], not samovens.com fyi). I guess that domain where blacklisted or it matched similar items I sent to spam, I don’t know. But in the response to my refund request they said:
    “So sorry that you don’t want to participate in this life changing course anymore. The course has tons of amazing information you will benefit from and I encourage you to participate.
    This program comes with a 30-day action-based guarantee.You are within the 30 day period to qualify for a refund, we urge you to give it another shot while you still have about 10 days within the refund period, we are confident you will see outstanding results.
    You originally signed up for the course with big dreams and ideas in mind.
    Let us help you achieve that!”

    I wrote back (after getting another call from my bank saying they were unsuccessful with the charge-back) asking why I’m still being charged and why I was receiving an argument to my cancellation request. There’s a long chain but to truncate: they will no longer accept my refund because it’s been more than 30 days. Just like almost all the other complaints I’ve found on the internet. They string you along until the 30 days is up and then “sorry”.

    In hindsight there were various signs this was not a wise choice on my part. On one slide during the webinar Sam says the refund is good for 42 days, but in reality it’s only 30. He says this to make you willingly go over the expiration date. In my case I gave plenty of notice to stop payments. They could have requested any documentation they wanted, but instead decided to make me wait until the last moment to cancel (although I’m not sure anything I did would have gotten me a refund given what I’ve experienced with them so far).

    I have the entire initial webinar recorded with the sales associates promises of refund to boot. Reach out if you need it in your own personal litigation.

    1. Sam has agreed to issue a refund, which was ultimately my only gripe with the program. I’m sure this process does work in certain occupations.

    2. Let’s get this guy down, why don’t we publish his paid material just to give him a lesson. If you agree, you can send me files to my mail and we can Facebook ad it! Feel free to send any kind of material to [email protected] let’s prevent other people get into this scam!

    3. Can you send me record of the webinar, [email protected]

    4. can’t anyone see that his “consulting” is selling the consulting training? can not anyone connect that he says you should charge a minimum of $2000 and that is what his course cost?
      I am still listening to his webinar, I got a couple ideas, but definitely not investing in the program.

    5. Hi, Brian

      You have mentioned that you have a recording of Sam Ovens entire webinar. Is it possible if you can share it with me thanks

      Kind Regards

    6. Brian, you wrote this,

      ” I have the entire initial webinar recorded with the sales associates promises of refund to boot. Reach out if you need it in your own personal litigation.”

      I am sorry to hear that the program was not what you expected or as was promised. These types of things happen all the time on the internet and well Customer Service for “online companies” are usually null, period.

      I am in the process of creating an online investigative company that does independent investigations and research for consumers and businesses as well.
      I have strong feelings in which most of these situations are litigated. I abhor the class action route as it is long and costly. Also, the legal system has no medium where some people are falsely accused and prosecuted. There can be a solution to keep businesses honest and consumers happy. I have that solution.
      This is a clear case to use as an example for my baseline study, statistics and possibly a solution. The issues that are represented in your situation are cut and dry, however, they are one-sided and to be objective and fair we need to hear the other side of the story. The old adage applies here…” there are 3 sides to any story, yours’, theirs and the Truth”!

      If you would, I would like to have an opportunity to review your recordings. Could I possibly get a copy? Thanks, RJ. Please let me know at [email protected]

    7. Hi Brian, please get in touch with me. I like to hear more and help / participate… just drop me the link to this website in the email that I remember the subject (uwoelly at gmail dot com) Thanks, UW

  7. source for other training material & webinar

    Original Poster
    Can you provide source for –
    ” get some free material and also there are programs that are genuine and cheaper which are way better than the one Sam Oven sells”

    Brian
    Would you be kind enough to provide a download link to your material of the “entire initial webinar recorded”.

  8. Amazing training! Whoever's review is above, it sounds like it's your own fault. Blaming Sam for you wanting a refund outside of the terms of the program!! Hilarious. Just one look at all the reviews he has on consulting.com/reviews makes you look silly for even writing this blog post. Don't hate what obviously didn't work for you but works for a lot of other people. Everything backs up.

    Whoever wrote the above review I can’t imagine that happening. Their live chat support responded to me on immediately whenever i had a question. The training is phenomenal. How did you not think it was not worth $2,000? Like what part? I can’t believe people like you that rail on Sam without presenting him fairly. I mean just one look at consulting.com/reviews and you’ll see that you are in the minority. How exactly his he harming people with reviews like that?

    1. How much did the program help you? Did you benefit in a large way due to working hard?
      My problem is that if their program is so valid and effective, why are so many people saying that they could not get a refund when asked within a reasonable time?

    2. Jay,

      Do you think consulting.com would have negative reviews on their site? That’s idiotic

  9. Don't Ask For a Refund!

    I haven’t enrolled in this course, but I am currently enrolled with another guru with the same kind of training. All I can say is you should stick with the program instead of looking for a way out. If you don’t commit yourself, you won’t succeed. The only thing I see that he lied about is the length of his webinar.

    Also, for $2,000 don’t expect to get a lot of personal attention.

  10. Refund process still unresolved

    I paid for the Consulting Accelerator Program after watching a webinar where Sam Ovens guaranteed 14 days refund. I confirmed via chat (I have the proof) that indeed there was this 14 days refund guaranteed. No conditions were showed or explained – there wasn’t any conditions exposed before the payment.

    Only AFTER the payment I got access to the user terms and conditions. I read it and there were lots of conditions I didn’t agree. Because of that I DIDN’T SIGN THE AGREEMENT. I have been asking for an immediate full refund, but his customer service is terrible. I’ve sent several emails and got just one disappointing response asking me to conclude the first 2 weeks to be able to request a refund (that is one of the conditions explained AFTER the payment). However, like I said, I didn’t sign the agreement with this condition, so any of the conditions can be imposed on me. I DID NOT SIGN THE AGREEMENT.

    After the only response I got I sent several other emails (to [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]) and I got no response whatsoever.

    I confess I was very excited about the program and I am still looking for a program to study in the future. I work for a non-profit with a small monthly stipend, so this money is important to me and not having is already causing me troubles. So far my experience with Sam Ovens’ business has been awful. I feel cheated and disrespected. I am still waiting to have my issue resolved. I will updated my post if anything changes (for the better or for the worse).

  11. Want to sell it?

    Want to sell it?

  12. Happy Customer

    Despite all the negative press as Donald Trump would say… this page kind of leads me to believe that some negative reviews are “fake news”.

    I personally was contacted by someone asking if I’d accept payment to give a bad review…

    But the course-

    I’m a pragmatist, so I believe that if someone has anything that can possibly help me achieve my goals and dreams, I’ll listen.

    Honestly and I mean this with 1000% sincerity and absolutely ZERO incentive from Sam himself, I can say that I honestly would’ve paid $2000 just to hear what he had to share in week 2 of course.

    When it comes down to it, this course has so much, logical, practical, and effective things that make sense, that I do believe that if you can’t learn how to make money with the “utility belt” you’re metaphorically provided, then you just shouldn’t be in business and just don’t understand it anyways.

    I’d rate this course as stellar and would recommend it personally to anyone.

    BUT that’s just my thoughts.

    1. Someone offered you money to write a bad review?

      You are so full of shit.. why bother pay somone when there are plenty of bad reviews already out there.

      You people look-up to used car sales men. That’s how low you are.

  13. paid actors presented as testimonials- no money back if guarantees are invoked

    Having helped consultants to grow their practice, I know how hard it can be if a person does not do the work. I also know it takes a lot of more than 30 days to close a contract for newbies! While some of my clients have been able to gain large contracts within a week, most take a few months! Some take much longer! It is irresponsible to encourage others to leave their jobs and become a highly paid consultant in 30 days 🙁 !?

    Watched a Galveston testimonial where guy was obviously reading a script, telling gullible ones how “Sam would do all the work for you.” Took a couple of minutes to check out his background through other local testimonials. Surprised to find one of his testimonials named Russell McGaffin, presented as Houston Project Management consultant who now has so many leads coming to him. I know a lot of PMs in our area but could not find this person in my contacts. Then to my SHOCK, found the guy is an actor, obviously paid to do the testimonial for the site. Compare –> http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2570711/ 🙂

    with this testimonial https://www.consulting.com/reviews/management/50k-in-6-months ?

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will gladly take this guy on for his false advertisement in Texas! Sad for so many who fell for his scam and tried to get their money back but were not given. If this guy is really making a million or 12 million dollars, scamming innocent buyers, he needs to be called to United States Texas courts right away!

    I did ask his paid csrs online why he was promoting a paid actor in California as a certified oil & gas project manager in Houston. They said their customers are doing dual jobs!???? Seriously!????? Obviously they have no idea what it takes to manage projects for oil & gas!

    1. Well done Anthony!! just show how a little digging goes a long way…

      Sam, if you’re reading you’re busted mate! Why not actually build something of value that the people you look up to would respect. Not some half assed GRQ snake oil programme. There is no sustainability on this programme. look for Sam Ovens in 2 years time. Won’t be doing this guaranteed. Like Tai Lopez – who wants to show us around his ‘new’ house, in LA which is actually available for rent on a weekly basis and the deeds belong to a well known property investor in the US. Came on guys – not fooling us.

    2. Wow. That testimonial discovery with the actor is awesome. How does someone like this get prosecuted for false advertising?

    3. It seems that he has 23+ oil and gas experience based on his linkedin.
      https://www.linkedin.com/in/russ-mcgaffin-1618996/

      I can verify that he is a paying client and that all reviews on our site are real.

      And if he was reading from a script…it’s one he would have written himself : )

      Source: I work at Consulting.com

  14. Just watched the webinar

    I watched his webinar yesterday and i don’t have to say much that i will not enroll in his training. First of all, his personal legend is a trick well-known by every con artist. It looks like every other personal legend of every con artist like Matt Loyd or any others. All this show is made for you to emotionally participate to his journey and asleep your reason and critical sense at all. But the most funny was the ‘plumber’ example as a niche. I expected a true example of consulting but he just can’t help fooling you right away with his ‘plumber’ example. As we know all plumbers need highly paid consultants to find client…

    1. What do you mean by a “true example of consulting”?

  15. Sam Ovens A BIG SCAM.. HOAX and QUACK

    Ovens hire a paid actor to perform a testimonials.. what a scam out there.

    1. Why don’t you guys sue him for the fraud and get your money back? He is still running his webinar on the regular basis and screwing innocent people.

  16. Free links of courses similar to Sam's

    Hi can you provide some links to where one can find the better free training that Sam offers?

  17. It seems like it is a good training from what you wrote 🙂
    Now you know I to get people’s attention, make them interested, and make them pay you money..
    You paid 2k not for information, but to dive into the process of how it works.
    Just consider it as a good lesson/experience. It costed you 2k to be aware of those kind of models which exist a now-days and maybe next time you won’t get scammed so easily or even reuse some of the patterns in your business. Because the methods he uses are actually good and work! the only problem is that there’s no real product behind them.

  18. Question

    So how did he really make all his money?

  19. Con Scammer Worse than Multi Level

    My college son purchased the Sam Ovens Consulting Program. $2000 he spent which wiped out his bank account. He Worked very hard everyday on calling and following up. Within 6 months of following all the steps, he still had no clients. Then within two weeks he received packages from Sam Ovens to tell his friends about how they can ” make 6 figures in a month” and with each new friend who signs up, my son would make $500. The first package was a small toy trash can with a fake large bill in it. The second was a bank bag with a large fake bill in it. I cautioned my son; hopefully he has learned a hard, valuable lesson on con artists and scammers.

  20. names

    the people he mentioned who gave their review (customer reviews) are most of all names of actors. So my question: want all actors become a consultant? or are they payed to use their names? or do they even know?

  21. Haven't tried. Almost bought. Looking at reviews.

    Can I find the course from an unhappy past customer and see what’s in it? Or check out somebody’s login and see what’s inside the program?

    1. Are you looking to buy it off someone?

  22. Why you guys did not sue him for your loss? I am in.

    Ive seen a lot of you here claiming a loss in this scam business. I am pretty sure that if it would get before courts, you are pretty safe getting your money back. Moreover, it would help others from buying it too… I am ready to help you with this. You can contact me at [email protected].

  23. SAM SCAM

    YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT. I AM A FAILURE BECAUSE OF SAM. IT IS NOT MY FAULT. I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. I AM NOT TO BE BLAMED. SAM IS RESPONSIBLE. IF I HAD NOT PAID 2K FOR HIS COURSE I WOULD HAVE BEEN A SUCCESS. I WILL DEDICATE MY LIFE TO CUSSING SAM INSTEAD OF TAKING ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY OWN ACTIONS.

    1. Literally no one is saying this, his practices are predatory and his program is average, with that being said the people who fell for his pitch should practice a routine of always saying “ill think about it” no good comes from jumping in head first you always need to do your own research. Now take your caps lock roid rage review and comeback when you have a valid point to make

    2. I’d be interested in acquiring the materials you purchased, let me know if you are inclined to provide.

  24. Scam Oven not a scam just not the best program

    wouldn’t say that Scam Ovens is a scam but his program isn’t what we thought it would be. he sold us on his program being a ferrari when it is really a toyota corolla.

    i have since left his facebook group last month and don’t even bother using his program anymore. his fb group is a cult they look at him like a god which is exactly what eh wants. the facebook group rules are you can only say positive things no negativity or complaining. out of the 7000 members and more many have already given up but they don’t say anything about it so we don’t know the reality of how many people have failed using his program. this makes me wonder how many more ppl think he is scam or have very poor experience with his program that don’t say anything because he use SEO tricks to hide them on google search and youtube.

    me and a dozen other ppl in his program have done our bigtime research and those that are successful in his program already had an existing business before joining so Scam Oven’s program helped them a lot because they were never exposed to mindset training or facebook advertisement training before thats why they get so excited about his program. that is all! very very rare to see people who buy his program start from scratch to make success business. he capitalizies on our impatience and impatient reptilian brain like he said he studied hours and hours and hours of psychology and marketing philosophy.

    don’t think sam oven is a scam he is just your typical internet marketer. the sales funnel he gives you is crap and expensive. because we are lazy to learn he takes advantage of this and we think he is giving us a lot of value becuz he shows how to create a sales funnel. sam say nobody cares about a fancy website and logo and all….LOLL but if you look at his website its nothing close to what he gives us. so different.

    his students are nice ppl and are admins in his cc fb group and his army of spies are probably reading this right now they are available on the weekly q&a calls and answer your questions in the consulting facebook group but they always give very generic general answers never speicific to your niche situation. it is his way of upselling us to buy more of his program. it is business so makes sense.

    if you bought accelerator 2.0 update version he sends you a boxset with his modules training, sale script and notebook. it is his way of showing value. useless. why not invest that money to help us create a better sales funnel or make $. we join your program to make money not to get your physical papers of your program lol. it is his way to say he is giving us more “value” but it is not.

    the people who are smart successful business in his program they never answer your questions. always the ones who dont have successful business give their opinion when we don’t ask for it loll. if you not successful, why you give your opinion when i ask the group a question about my business?

    my recommendation? if you have business and doing okay then his facebook ad training may be good for you. for mindset training just go to amazon and buy top selling business books. save your two thousand dollars. what goes around comes around he think he will be billionaire with his business practices of no refund but it will bite him in his buttocks one day. his wife have no idea what monster she marry.

    1. I’d be interested in acquiring the materials you purchased, let me know if you are inclined to provide.

  25. Smoke and mirror

    Holy crap – this course is so bad. Long winded rambling that could be condensed to half the time. Each module is over 90 minutes. Overly complicated and repetitive material.

    One of his testimonials claims to be making 1 million a year. I know her and she isn’t hitting those numbers. Lots of smoke and mirrors here

    1. I’d be interested in acquiring the materials you purchased, let me know if you are inclined to provide.

  26. Ever thought, Sam ovens paid by facebook to advertise facebook ads!

  27. Who dares Wins.

    I think the psychology training alone is worth the amount charged for this course.Every time i get off track i watch one of Sam’s videos to help me stay focused.Shiny object syndrome is a thing of the past.Taking action and putting in the effort with consistency is the agenda for the day and every day.

  28. Sick of hearing Sam Ovens DAILY.

    I’m sick of this parasitic troll buying so much youtube and facebook ads, I hear Sam Ovens DAILY.
    Soon the world will be saturated with nothing but incompetent consultants and property managers!
    Consulting in my field isn’t accessible to anyone without a bachelors degree, there is no easy path for fakers!
