A heartfelt comment recently on an earlier thread suggests a mass rebellion of dissatisfied customers in Shaun Stenning‘s Twalk ‘internet marketing business’ in Asia. (Sometimes they use the brand ‘Snipr‘, I believe.)
This smooth-talking itinerant salesman’s quick-and-easy-riches-through-the-internet sales pitch was assisted and sometimes delivered by his business partner, local-spruiker-under-pressure Dean Letfus.
In hyperbolic marketing materials for the ‘online cash machines’ (cough), Dean Letfus was described (a bit like a professional wrestler) as ‘little known internet marketing expert (splutter) Mr X‘.
- Could the wheels be coming off the snake oil wagon train?
- Are there any guarantees in this er, ‘operation’ — personal or otherwise — that the customers can rely upon? (It would be nice to think they stand behind their ‘product’.)
- Or is it true they routinely blame the customer’s ‘mindset’ and ‘loser mentality’ for a demonstrable lack of success?
But look how pretty, and soothing, the page notifying the [allegedly] hundreds of ‘rebels’ in the ‘refund movement’ of the cold, hard facts is.

On the stage, he [Shaun Stenning] said that user does not need to do anything but celebrate. But after you purchase, there are months of webinars that never come to end. Zero result after one year of education. His Country Manager in Indonesia and All technical Support’s Twalk Account also with zero result.
Now all his client from Indonesa, including his technical support demand him for refund. Hongkong clients already have successful refund movement on March 2010. Right now this Taiwan clients also start to organize refund movement.
Oh dear. The perils of hyperbole.
