Mark Manuel -Right side of Picture


Please beware of a Man named Mark Manuel. He has swindled many people out of money in an organization called H.O.P.E., a Prepaid gas card and another called Netsalon, an Internet privitized service provider. He targets men and women involved in Christian ministry and he cons them out of their money. He is very cunning and has ruined the lives of many people who have invested in his MLM schemes. He moved from Texas to Tennessee and is involved in " ministry" at his brothers church in Nashville. If you have had experiences with this con-artist, please share your information

Ed your totally wrong

AUTHOR: Kevin - (U.S.A.)

Ed,

I have personally been ripped off my Mr. Mark Manuel, he is NOT a 'church loving good person', he and his on again/off again friend Lance Perry (Netsalon) are both 'total scum'. I have boatloads of 'proof' that you say isnt out there, if you want challenge my ass in court and in my 'first amendment opinion' you and him would get creamed (just my opinion). I can put my money where my mouth is, they are not good people, only hiding behind 'fronts' to make them look good. But, your comments about proof are totally wrong. I have plenty..........

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Mark Manuel - Netsalon - H.O.P.E. - Prepaid Gas Cards

AUTHOR: Bryan - (U.S.A.)

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT


Just a note of my very positive business experiences with Mark Manuel. After months of working with a company Mark is helping to lead, I've found him to be a man of as much integrity as any I've worked with. It's also evident he's imperfect, as are the rest of us. My comment on the imperfection is, 'That's where we all live.'

Our business dealings have included conversations which contain disclosure about ANY choices we make in business being OUR OWN. It has been my experience that we both agree if things go well or go terribly, my investments of time and money are my decisions and are my risk, not Mark's.

That principle should already be understood by one making a business decision. If not, I can't see how it would roll back to Mark or any other person as it being 'their fault' someone failed in business. The exception would be where fraud was perpetrated. It seems the ripoff reporter may have made a bad business move and possibly Mark did also. That's called life, not necessarily a ripoff.


Good Comments. I think we all can learn somethin from your advise

Major Search Engine Partners With Ripoff Report

AUTHOR: Ed - (U.S.A.)

Google, one of the world's most visited search engines, has partnered with The Ripoff Report to facilitate the world wide distribution of unfounded, unsubstantiated, and unverified information about businesses and individuals.

Google and The Ripoff Report have proven how powerful their partnership has become.

The question is does Google recieve a percentage of the money paid by businesses and individuals to get negative information removed from The Ripoff Report

Thank God for Big Ed and The good people at Google. It's because of their partnership, everyone can be defamed.

How About Just One Fact!

AUTHOR: Ed - (U.S.A.)

I have read this scathing report. It is filled with deceptive, misleading, and disparraging information.

Could any of the individuals providing this unsubstantiated information please just insert one fact.

Just one little fact.

Your report is obviously designed to malign an individual without one fact.

If Mark Manuel is all the things you say he is, and he has done all of the evil things you say he has done...Then Dave Sunde...Be a Man and insert it in your report. Surely you and Jaudon have reems of facts to collaberate your false accusations.

Cmon...just one little fact. Did you write Mark Manuel a check? Did Mark Manuel Steal your dog? Did Mark Manuel steal your money? Did Mark Manuel do anything to you? Surely you could produce one little piece of factual evidence to support your scathing claims?

I know Mark Manuel...He is a Giver and Mentor to many successful people. I was involved with HOPE, NetSalon, and many more of Mark Manuel's endeavors. You on the other hand have your on bag of skeletons. It's just a matter of time until your pictures, as well as Jaudon's pictures show up all over the web with the many people you have hurt, decieved, and injured...it will be interesting to see how you react to that.

Imagine...everytime someone enters Dave Sunde or Jauden Estelle Sunde on any search engine...There is your ripoff report with all of the pictures and people you have injured, hurt, and decieved.

I begged Mark to legally go after you, but he says you guys are just bitter, confused, and poisoned people full of hate. He actually prays for you and hopes you can get professional help.

I on the other hand, am not built that way. I look forward to sharing with the world your wake up to make up stories and the lies that go with it.

Obviously you have no idea how successful Mark Manuel has become. Your ripoff report has actually fueled Mark's intensity to succeed.

You on the other hand remain...bitter, cold, poisoned, and full of hate.

Oh, I almost forgot...Have you actually got a job? Or, are you still living off of Jaudon?

#7 REBUTTAL Owner of company

NetSalon and Mark Manuel

AUTHOR: Lance A. - (U.S.A.)

Since the time of my rebuttal report new information has come to light. At the time that Mr. Manuel was a member of the NetSalon Management team and during my departure several questionable business practices had taken place. When given the opportunity to return the entire responsability for these practices was laid at the feet of Mr. Manuel. Through the growth and expansion of Netsalon over the last 2 years from a publicly traded entity to a now burdgeoning private company extensive due dilligence has been done. In the course of meticulous investigation we have determined that the individual making the desparaging and false claims regarding Mr. Manuels business practice was "in fact" covering his own questionable methods and insuring that he remained in the employ of the company.

Since that has been discovered I have had occassion to spend a great deal of time with Mark and am proud to say that he is a trusted freind and subject matter expert in the field of Direct Sales, I regret my previous remarks that were made based upon dis-information and deception on the part of the individual that reported it to me. Further investigation reveals that the author of this original report "Dave" from Ohio has never directly or indirectly done business with NetSalon, Mark Manuel or any other party we are aware of listed in this report. It appears that Dave was engaged in some form of extortion scheme.

#8 UPDATE Employee

NetSalon is a fine Company

AUTHOR: Lance A. - (U.S.A.)

I founded NetSalon and built a fine company that was ahead of it's time from a technology perspective. It was my misfortune to have a series of unpleasant experiences with Mark when he convinced us to go MLM and lead that charge. Long story short, I left the company due to differences in ethics and business practices with Mr. Manuel. Two years later I was asked by my co-founder to come back to my company and clean up the mess Mark had made, I did on the specific condition that Mark would not be involved in any way and that he leave the company. In the last two years we have provided quality service for many fine MLM's and we love and protect our industry. We ask that you do not connect our name to his as we do share your views and not his business practices. We have many references and we are proud of our reputation.

Thank You for you consideration.

Enterprise MLM Software

AUTHOR: Dave - (U.S.A.)

Here is another company that Mark Manuel is involved with....



BEWARE..............Before you do business with him, check out his past in Texas with H.O.P.E. and Net Salon



He is a fast talker who burn people and moves on. Do a Background search on him before you spend a dime with anything he is involved with and you will see a larger papertrail



Here is another of his latest scams



MLM Software is actually the central nervous system of your company's anatomy. The most important decision you will make in the creation, development, growth, and success of your new MLM company will be to partner with a software and consulting company that understands your needs, recognizes your potential, and is committed to winning.



At CalcuTree, we are absolutely committed to making sure that your company is at the forefront of emerging technologies. CalcuTree is more than just an MLM software provider. We understand the dynamics that are associated with success and failure, and we take great pride in preparing our clients for the monumental task ahead. In an industry where 95% of start-up companies fail within the first 6 months, here at CalcuTree, we are experiencing an 80% success ratio. While we can't take all of the credit for this phenomenal success ratio, we can certainly hold our head high, and declare that we delivered on the MLM Software, MLM Consulting, MLM Business Consulting, and the support needed to grow our clients' businesses.



Remember, when researching software and consulting companies, there are several things that you need to strongly consider:



Experience

References

Expertise

Motivation

Passion

Winning

Business Development

Please do not be fooled by the games that are prevalent in this industry. So called "industry experts," consultants, and even lawyers, are easily exposed when you take the time to evaluate their analysis, check their references, and ultimately compare their success in the network marketing industry as producing distributors, full-time MLM company executives, or MLM owners.



MLM software has often been characterized as many different types of software. Every day, some new title is created to call MLM software something other than MLM software. So, in an effort to make sure that we have covered every category or title you may have heard, we have compiled a list of all of the MLM software descriptions we have run across:



MLM Software

Direct Sales Software

Direct Selling Software

Multi-Level Software
