Tai Lopez Scam? Yes His Program Is A Scam In My Opinion!
I have had a lot of questions from my subscribers about Tai Lopez. Is he a scam or does he hold the key to getting anything you want out of life: wealth, health, love, and happiness? If a money making ad you’re looking at features a mansion, a Ferrari or Lamborghini; in my opinion, that is a giant red flag that it is a scam.

With just a quick look at his book shelves in his garage it seems strange how these books would help you to have the “knowledge” for business success:
Rock & Roll
When God Talks Back
A Colder War
Lost in Shangri-La
Blood and Thunder
The End of Food
In the Garden of Beasts

The primary product that Tai Lopez sells is 67 steps to getting anything you want out of life: wealth, health, love, and happiness. It costs $67 per month. The program includes 67 steps, videos of Lopez, life-coaching calls from Lopez, book-of-the-day recommendations, and other bonus content.
“Tai seems like a very knowledgeable person, a very smart person, but he’s an internet marketer. That’s all he is. I’ve watched a dozen and a half motivational videos on YouTube and got more out of them than Tai’s program. They are one in the same and preach the same regurgitated information. Read a Tony Robbins book for God’s sake! Tai’s program is Tony Robbins and YouTube motivational videos rolled up into hour-and-a-half long sessions of listening to Tai talk.” – Source Scott Godar
I want to be very clear with you there are no 67 steps, 100 steps or 1000 steps that will give you anything you want out of this life. There are things you can’t have in life like living forever or being someone else.
Here is Tai’s bio from Linkedin:
Tai Lopez is an investor, partner, or advisor to over 20 multi-million dollar businesses. Through his popular book club and podcasts Tai shares advice on how to achieve health, wealth, love, and happiness with millions of people worldwide.
Over the years, Tai sought out the secrets to the “Good Life” by setting up his life as a series of experiments. He began by reading thousands of books from the most impactful figures in history: Freud, Aristotle, Gandhi, Charlie Munger, Sam Walton, Darwin, Confucius, and countless others.
He spent two-and-a-half years living with the Amish, worked at a leper colony in India, and helped Joel Salatin pioneer grass-fed, sustainable agriculture on Polyface Farms.
He then joined the long list of entrepreneur college dropouts and ended up completely broke (sleeping on his mom’s couch) until he talked five, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs into mentoring him.
Tai went on to become a Certified Financial Planner and worked in the world of finance before becoming a founder, investor, advisor, or mentor to more than 20 multi-million dollar businesses while settling in the Hollywood Hills.
He appeared on various TV and radio shows, spoke at top global universities like The London Business School and the University of Southern California, and created one of the top downloaded podcasts and YouTube channels, “The Grand Theory of Everything.”
In order to get feedback from an even larger audience, Tai started what is now one of the world’s largest book clubs that reaches 1.4 million people in 40 countries with his “Book-Of-The-Day” free email newsletter.
Tai recently summarized all he has learned from his mentors and compiled them into a series of ‘mentor shortcuts’ he calls, “The 67 Steps.”
He also created an alternative to the traditional business school. This “Business Mentorship” program combines the best of self-learning with the best of a University degree without all the downsides of burdensome costs and inefficient methods.

Tai Lopez is an insurance salesman that purchased some dating sites and is now selling the 67 steps to getting anything you want out of life: wealth, health, love, and happiness.
Here are some examples of how Tai Lopez’s dating sites work:
When you sign up for this site – the general free check it out part – you start to receive well timed out emails that are set up to look as though they are coming from people who are generally interested in you. Not an overload but a reasonable number of emails that make you think people who are already paying and sharing the same desire to date are actually interested in you. YOU ARE INDUCED TO SIGN UP.
Once you are signed up – and you respond to someone who initiated contact with you. They NEVER write back. NOT ONE of the people who originally emailed you. In short order you realize that they have a system in place that sends out these type of emails and that it is all FAKED. – Source Ripoffreport.com
I wanted to warn people about this fake web site. Like most people are saying, the minute you sign in, even before posting your picture, suddenly they are interested in you! Tons of hot guys (not normal compared to all the fuglies on the MANY free web sites). While browsing these pics of hot men, chats pop up trying to talk to me. I admit, I was dumb, I signed up for the free trial, and tried to respond back to the chats (took about 5 mins) and suddenly these men weren’t interested in talking to me. WTF? The emails stopped, too. The guys that did email me, I wrote them back, not one response? HAH! I’m so hot why aren’t they responding back to the girl they emailed!?
Like someone else said, I noticed the same profiles would pop up interested in me when I was no longer a member. Don’t waste your money. They are all fake!! – Source Complaintsboard.com
If you are wondering where those hot profiles come from, I think I have the answer:
As of January 2016 Tai Lopez appears to own the following websites:
Tai Lopez Scam Conclusion
In my opinion, Tai Lopez is running a scam. He is using ridiculous claims and the symbols of wealth to sell you a program that can’t provide the results he is offering. Tai Lopez is an insurance salesman that purchased some dating sites and is now selling the 67 steps to getting anything you want out of life: wealth, health, love, and happiness. He claims that his success is because of the mentors he has had in his life. In my opinion, few if any multi-millionaire entrepreneurial mentors would recommend working for GE Capital as an issuance salesman as the way to success. I would avoid the Tai Lopez 67 steps scam.
