Tai Lopez is an internet personality known for doing a crazy amount of ads and publicity stunts. He is quite rich and claims to have built a multi-million empire. But he fakes his richness by using rental cars and renting big mansions to fool his audience into thinking that he owns those commodities. He does this because his whole brand revolves around showing off and bragging.
More than 200 Million people are scammed every year in the United States. The number of hackers, cybercriminals, con artists and frauds has been increasing rapidly. Even influencers have been conning people in order to earn money. Tai Lopez is one of them.
He has been running several scam companies which target the young people (ageing from 16 – 24) and steals their money. Tai has been so successful with his methods that people don’t even realise that they are being fooled. He has scammed a countless number of youngsters. His courses and books are full of BS and provide no valuable information to the customer. However, his persuasive skills make sure that the customers don’t realize that they are wasting their time and money.
Background & Businesses
About Tai Lopez
Tai Lopez is a big social media personality with more than 3.1 million followers on Instagram, 1 million subscribers on YouTube, 6 million fans on FB and 700k followers on Twitter. He is an investor, entrepreneur, motivational speaker and advisor. You might have seen him in his infamous car garage advert, which went viral on YouTube.
He is also the host of “The Tai Lopez Show”, where he talks about wealth, happiness, love and nutrition; he claims that his show is watched by 1.4 million people all around the world. He is the owner of Mentor Box, which is a book shipping club.
On 11th April 1977, Tai Lopez was born. There is not much information available about his parents and childhood. But Lopez himself has said that he was raised by his grandmother and mother and he was an introverted kid. Some people say that Lopez talked to his grandfather a lot who was at that time, a scientist. His grandfather motivated him to change the world and he used to send him books via mail.
Tai Lopez is not educated and thus he has not told anyone the name of his college, from which he dropped out of. His whole education is shady and Lopez has done all he can to make sure that his education information does not leak. After dropping out, he started working on many different jobs. He was hired by the Amish, where he milked cows and did other miscellaneous tasks. Amish are a church fellowship of traditionalist Christians, who avoid any latest technology.
He currently has a net worth of $20 million. He says that he garnered this crazy wealth by selling courses and investments, but we all know that this is not true.
His Social Media Marketing Course
Tai Lopez has released his new Social Media Marketing Agency (SMMA) Course quite recently. It apparently teaches you how to earn thousands of dollars while travelling the world and smashing hot chicks. The whole landing page of this course is a big click-bait. Tai states that there are people earning $10,000 using his knowledge, but there is zero evidence to prove his claims.
It is a 16-week course and during these 16 weeks, it will teach you how to run a social media agency. When you complete the course Tai Lopez will give his own certification, making you a Lopez certified Social Media Marketing agent. However, the value of this certification is zero, as Tai is NOT a social media marketing expert and the course itself does not have any special value as well.
We have interviewed dozens of social media marketing professionals and asked them their views on this course. Most of them said that there are many businessmen who don’t know anything about social media except that it can get them a lot of customers, and such businessmen often buy these programs. A business always looks for boosting sales and generating leads and this course targets those people and teaches them the basics.
Everything that you will learn from this expensive course can be learnt for FREE on YouTube and websites. It does not provide any special information that you might expect from such an expensive course. This course is awesome for those who don’t know anything about social media and have thousands of dollars to throw away, but if you value your resources, then STAY AWAY from this course.
We can say that Tai Lopez’s Social Media Marketing Agency Course is a type of pyramid scheme. It is quite new and thus, Tai is giving is all in marketing this course to make sure that more and more people buy it. He always takes down any critical reviews on his products and thus, there are literally NO reviews of this course available, which clearly defines its values.
A Horribly Generic Course
The 67 Steps Review 2021
The 67 Steps course of Tai is his most popular course ever, as he has used a very different marketing strategy to sell it. He sells one video for $1 dollar and has sold many copies of this course. The 67 Steps course teaches nothing except that you need hard work to earn big money, which is obvious information.
He emphasizes that you watch all 67 of his videos if you want the full benefits of this course. But in order to watch them, you will have to buy the full course. In order to evaluate his course, we bought it and watched it ourselves only to find out that Tai has once again proven that he is a master of conning, as there was no valuable information available in his course.
He has just compiled some key points from a bunch of books and is showcasing them in such a way that you will think that those points are his own. We have to say that Tai Lopez is a very talented salesperson and he always makes sure that his fans don’t realize that they are getting fooled. His advert of the 67 Steps Course runs almost on every video he can afford. Most of the information that Tai tells in this course is common sense and an average person knows these facts already.
We did appreciate the amount of effort Tai Lopez put in the course and it is very organized, but considering the price tag, we cannot say it is worth your money. We noticed that Tai didn’t even put much thought into his videos and most of them are not even scripted. He is just improvising on the go, trying to sound useful and motivational, while not providing any real information.
Mini MBA (Blue Belt): Joke Of A Course
Mini MBA (Blue Belt) Review
Believe it or not, Tai Lopez claims that he can give you 90% of the information provided in a full-fledged MBA course, in his $1,000 Mini-MBA course. This course is just as dumb as it sounds; reviewers say that for the price tag of a thousand bucks, you can get much better information than that is available in this course.
It comes along with its video library and you can do live Q&As every week with the members of Tai’s team. Most of the time your question will not be answered as the members have to attend many others and they will just try to give a generalized answer, to avoid any contradictions.
The structure of this course is much poor than any other course available on the internet. They don’t even have a summary list and the course is just a bunch of videos put together. Some videos lack context and are there just to fill the space.
For its price, the Mini MBA course of Tai Lopez is definitely not worth it. A toddler can learn using this course, as it has nothing complicated information; this course is so straight forward that it is bad. The only unique thing about this course is Tai’s personal experiences he shares on it, and those will only be helpful for those who are his crazy fans.
Even though Tai has used high-grade recording equipment for the making of this course, we can’t say that it is worth your thousand dollars. Lopez might be an enthusiastic entrepreneur making millions of bucks, but that doesn’t make him qualified enough to give his own Mini-MBA certificate. And this makes the value of this certification far less than an actual MBA certificate.
Glassdoor Reveals Tai Lopez Exploits His Employees
Tai is really talented when it comes to talking sweet and he hides his true personality from his fans. Most of his kindness is only towards chicks and money. We had to dig deep in order to find more about his attitude towards people. 99% of the reviews or statements on the internet which speak the truth about Tai are taken down by the reputation management team of Tai Lopez.
Tai Lopez says that he is a very kind person and most of his associates say the same. However, his employees beg to differ. Below are reviews of some of Tai’s previous employees, who have worked with him for at least a year.
This review states that Tai Lopez’s office does provide free lunch sometimes free travel. However, the cons list outnumbers the pros by a large difference. He added that the managers make a lot of fake promises in order to keep the employees from quitting.
The key positions in the company are held by Tai’s friends and family, who do not have a clue about the company or their post. The employees are not given any kind of training and Tai abuses the employees sometimes. Moreover, his own investors don’t believe in him.
This employee has stated that the managers of Tai Lopez’s office are a bunch of liars who make empty promises to the employees to keep them working hard. Most of the employees leave in a couple of months, because of poor management.
The administration doesn’t care about the employees and they prioritise some particular employees who they like to. They state that they want adaptable professionals but what they really mean is that they want those people who can do everything they say without any hesitation. This employee also said that most of the employees feel neglected and ignored, because the administrators are extremely self-centred.
All the managers are manipulative and they use many psychological tactics on the employees to get the job done. If there is any delay in the work due to any reason, they will even start cursing.
The office runs on the principal of hard work but does not care about the health of the employee. They don’t know anything about organising their work and making it more efficient. The company does not have any goals in mind and operates like a headless chicken. Any new ideas are not appreciated and they managers a highly critical of the work. Employees often find themselves wasting a lot of their time on pointless tasks and there is no guidance when it comes to career advancement. This employee finally states that working with Tai Lopez is a total disappointment and if you are a fan of his, then don’t work there.
- Management is a bunch of sexual predators.
This woman used to work at Tai Lopez’s office, but she had to leave because of the perverted bosses. She did appreciate their work ethic and worked really hard, however, the managers used to give sexual remarks to her, which was extremely uncomfortable.
Once one of the managers even tried to touch grope her, but she resisted as much as possible. The work environment is clearly not safe for women and any professional female should avoid working here. They guarantee a lot of things but do nothing.
Using A Fake Lamborghini To Sell Overpriced Programs
The “Here In My Garage” Advertisement
Everyone who knows about Tai Lopez knows about his viral YouTube advertisement, which took the internet by the storm. His video titled “Here In My Garage” has 69 million views on it! Tai has spent a whopping $200,000 on this promotion. The worst thing about this promo is that everything featured in it is either rented or fake.
Many people say that Tai Lopez rented a Lamborghini for the shoot of this video, but what they don’t know is that he hasn’t even done that. He has actually used a green screen in his video. There is no shadow of him in the whole 3:54 minutes video. A green screen is a videography technique that enables the filmmaker to film a moving object in front of a green screen which can be used in other videos.
This advert became a meme shortly after it became viral and it helped Lopez boost his business even more. Almost all the views on this video are bought out. The reason being, that it has only around 100 comments and 60k likes, whereas an organic video has a much more engagement rate than this. Moreover, it has 50K dislikes as well, which shows how much people hated this promo.
This advert changed Tai’s life and gave him the boost he needed to become an established con artist. Many people critiqued his false advertisement method, but most of them were bought out by Tai’s team. He has claimed that this promo has more than 1.2 billion minutes of watch time, which is A LOT for an advert.
He earned a ton of money from this video, as it generated millions of clicks to his course’s landing page. One source tells us that his conversion rate was 14% which itself is a crazy number. The course he sold using this promo was totally useless and didn’t provide ANY value.

Elite Global Dating LLC (His Fraud Dating Company)
The Elite Global Dating LLC is Tai’s one of the most sketchy companies. It has dozens of fake profiles that consist of attractive women who will message (the message will be something that will almost force the user to reply) the visitors when they make their account and in order for them to reply, they will have to get their membership. All these attractive accounts are of bots and once the user gets the membership, these bots stop replying to him. However, when he will stop paying for the membership, those bots will start to message him again.
This company is highly infamous for not refunding the user’s money once they decide to cancel their membership. Tai has changed the domain of this websites 3 times by now, and it is possible that he will change it again in the future.

Social Media Presence

He currently has 3.1m followers on Instagram and he claims to giveaway cars, cash & laptops, but there is zero proof that he has done that. He claims that people have won 10 cars and 540 cash, and yet again his statement is without any proof.
