SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I answered an ad for changeyourlife.org and was told that I would be hired as an intern (editor). After a month the position would turn paid. Was given info on a Ari Hinnant and after looking at her website thought she was reputable as a 'self-help' guru. After red flags began popping up everywhere - from not citing her sources, plagarism on her behalf, etc... I began to look a bit more into this person.

She claims that she is on a global tour and will promote each book edited by you on her 'tour'. This tour never happened and has since been changed four times to my knowledge. I found a press release dating back to 2001 when she was claiming to launch her 'global tour'. She claims she has 'created' millions of jobs for people by publishing (self-published e-books) her books - 'How to Sell 100,000 Books', How to become a Rent Locator, How to start a Modeling Agency, etc... She also claimed she founded three separate charities all helping homeless children. However, when those were contacted they had never heard of her.

Myself and another editor signed contracts stating that we would receive .50 per book sold (that we had edited) for the next 3 years. Promised as well that these books were best sellers and would reach 250,000 books sold. I had also signed a contract to 'sell' her books and told I'd receive 50% on all sales. No tracking system was in place - we all went on her 'word' that nothing sold, she hadn't uploaded them onto Amazon, too busy, etc...

On any blog radio interview she states the same b.s. over and over. Claims she's a millionaire and on this 'global tour' where she'll travel 5 countries, the entire time marketing our books and our services, and that she was simply living life with little material possessions. Fast forward a few weeks and her entire site has changed focus, no longer helping homeless children, changed her press release, now she says she'll be donating 250,000 books to shelters, prisons, etc... Oh, yes and she'll be personally handing Oprah a million dollar check ON her show by 2010. As of this posting, her website now has deleted her last name so when her name Ari Hinnant is searched it won't come up a scam.

At first, she was presented to me (and the other editor) as a self help motivator - booking large convention centers to hold her seminars. There was a list of upcoming events thru 2010 and now those have ALL been taken down from her site. They were claimed to be FREE events but when you went to book your tickets it would tell you they were $15 or $25 each and prompt you to pay with cash.

All of her merchant accounts are flagged. She requires anyone to pay CASH by a money gram - all her books are over $50 (they used to be 7.95). She even has 'emergency sessions to unblock your financial situations' for $1500. Again, has to be paid in CASH.

There are thousands, if not millions, of very broke and depressed people these days and all are looking for a way out of their debt. She claims to cure it all with the purchase of her books, her sessions, etc... She does have close to a million followers and all of her testimonials are all from gmail. accounts.

After I tweeted about her another person contacted me and told me they thought the same things - that she was a scammer - due to the fact that her twitter page and facebook accounts all have spam like messages...'Make $5,390 in 8 days'... Always crazy numbers being thrown around.

This lady (if she is even a woman) needs to be put out of business. The world has suffered enough in the economic hell we've been sucked into - we don't need a fake parading around claiming she'll help us and promise us millions. I realize she's one of many but getting her offline will save countless families their money and pride.

Mistaken Identity... Arie Hinnant is the Wrong Person... I apologize.

AUTHOR: Ron - ()

This entire post is wrong. I hired a PI and it seems that a Kevin Satterfield is scamming people. One of his workers mentioned a book that Arie Hinnant wrote--and I thought she was scamming me? My bag. Man, so much misinformation on the net.

But, things have gotten out of hand. I apologized to Ms. Hinnant for hurting her good name. If I could, I would delete this post, but, I can't.

Here is a link to PI's findings on Satterfield (he's a guy)

Once again, I'm sorry for hurting Ms. Hinnant. She wasn't bothering anybody. Now, I know what it feels like driving and walking while black.

Here is another link to Cheryl hinnant fraud tantra training www.tantraglobalcenter.info

After doing some further research and looking up her name she has lived in multiple states and multiple cities within states. For example, she had lived in palm beach and winter park Florida. In winter park Florida there is a supposed credit repair company run by Cheryl green hinnant. However after looking on their website I notice two different addresses for the same company. 201 aloma avenue and 2431 aloma avenue winter park Florida. When I google mapped the addresses they both didn't exist one didn't come up at all the other was a parking lot. http://www.trinityenterprisesllc.com/ www.creditrepairlady.com

Love Kai

AUTHOR: N/a - (Canada)

I was a member of a holistic health page on Facebook. I came across a post by "love Kai" asking for advice about a possible knee injury. Me having a health background I gave her some pointers an corresponded with her for a few days. After a few days, Love Kai thanked me for all the advice and offered me a opportunity as a wellness tantra specialist. She claimed she was thankful for all the advice and wanted to pay it forward and show me how I could make money spreading love. She also said this is a perfect opportunity for anyone facing hardships in life. She also asked for me to call her she had a question to ask. When I called her she asked me about how much she should charge people to access to a bartering list, I was puzzled and felt very uneasy about the whole phone call. She talked about how she was an author and humanitarian to children and abused women. After checking out her website www.tantracenter.info I saw red flags immediately. All the reviews on the site seemed fake and there were tons of spelling mistakes and little to no information about certification. To pay for the materials she asks to use cash, moneygram or credit card. I googled her name I found on her Facebook by chance in her 2009 timeline where she posted an article she wrote about stalkers! This lady obviously has not learned her lesson and continues to seek out disadvantaged people.

Delusional Ari Hinnant Continues Her Fake Stories on Comment #3

AUTHOR: Matthew - (USA)

I truly hate having to post this but seeing as my name is once again being dragged in to the gutter here on ROR, I have to hit back. I will try to keep this short. This comment has to do with Comment #3 allegedly by Ann Alloria.

1. There is no such individual by Ann Alloria but there is a such person as Ari Hinnant.

2. Ari has a history of creating dozens of online personas and then writing about herself as a 3rd-person. Go Google it or look it up here on ROR.

3. There is a Google trail of Ari's ongoing defamation campaign against me as retaliation for my calling her out on her scamming and trolling efforts on LinkedIn discussion forums in 2009. Go Google it, so much unnecessary drama. Obviously, I paid a heavy price for that effort because now I have a delustional nutjob who periodically has to concoct outlandish online stories about me.

4. Ari has a history of plagiarizing news stories and then integrating her fake stories about me into those plagiarized news stories. Fortunately, most her stories about me is easily debunked because it makes no sense and cannot be corroborated in any meaningful way. She appears to have some obsession over stalking, raping, child molestation, etc. They are common themes.

5. Ari thinks I filed the initial ROR complaint which is not the case. Unlike her, I don't file anonymous complaints and I have my own distinct style of writing. Her delusional mind can't fathom that other people besides me know of her lies and scams.  But anything bad being said online about her she wrongfully attributes to me.

6. My employment and professional history is well-established on LinkedIn. It does not remotely come close to the fake story in Comment #3 where I am supposedly an ex-employee of Ari's.  It is a weird story that has no internal logic.  I am supposedly an ex-employee of Ari on Paragraph #1 but by Paragraph #4 it says she doesn't know me personally?  How does a supposed ex-employee ever become an employee to begin with without meeting their original employer?  It doesn't and she looks dumb for writing it. 

7. Also, would any employee care enough to truly stick their neck out and use their real name for their employer in responding to a ROR complaint?  No, I don't think so. If someone or their business gets attacked online, it is usually the attacked person who will write a rebuttal.  That is exactly what I am doing not handing it off to some assistant or secretary.

8. And since I have to waste my time again looking out for my online reputation, I think she goes by "Ari Love" and engaged in the "massage therapy" business. She is the one on Facebook with the erotic photos. That Facebook account has been through a few name changes. It might change again.

Overall, I probably could have left this alone and my reputation would be fine but I just can't stand having this open-ended fictional thread about me left standing alone without a response. In the interest of keeping this short go look up Ari Hinnant here on ROR as well as Google. It makes for some sad but somewhat entertaining reading.

#10 UPDATE Employee

Ex. Employee Matthew S. Chan Stalking Ari Hinnant

AUTHOR: Ann Alloria - (United States of America)

Greetings,

My Name is Ann and for the last two years I have tolerated Matthew S. Chan (Who is a competitor and associated with an ex.employee, who Ari fired.) stalk Ms. Hinnant.

I thought I document this situation, for its gotten a bit dangerous, since Mr. Chan is posting Ms.Hinnants address and speaking tour information. 

I've worked with Ms. Hinnant for over 15 years and she is a simple author, speaker and child activist. All her books empowers people and teaches them about love and kindness.

She doesn't know Mr. Chan personally.  I don't know why Mr. Chan has the time to constantly call, send anonymous emails and post lies about Ms. Hinnant? Ms. Hinnant told me not to give it any energy, but, I take her calls and I'm tired of Mr. Chan calling our office and sending threatening emails. Ms. Hinnant surrounds him with love and hopes he gets the help he needs. Everyone needs to be careful about stalkers.

Mr. Matthew S. Chan | http://turnkeypublisher.com/blog/

Ari Hinnant = Benny Hinn ?

AUTHOR: Alex G - (USA)

Intresting how con-men and con-women have similar sounding names. This lowlife skank can usually be found at your local Starbucks, taking up space on her laptop, pretending to be writing a screenplay or closing a billion dollar internation business deal all while basically homeless. Charming group of people aren't they?

ChangeYourLife.org has moved to Zkari.com

AUTHOR: Matthew - (USA)

As an update, ChangeYourLife.org was shut down and it appears that Zkari.com is the replacement website.

In the MoneyGram International Payment, she is receiving cash payments as C. Hinnant / Zkari, not Ari Hinnant anymore.

Never pay with cash or money order to anyone via the Internet. It is just bad business and you are looking to get scammed. Use a debit or credit card instead.
