Recently I attended a seminar where Chris Bowser was a speaker. He was supposed to provide lots of information on how to use eBay. I was excited. I've sold a few things on eBay without much success so I really wanted to learn more.
The disappointment came when I realized that Chris Bowser was there with the sole purpose of selling his eBay course. Even with those feelings, I was compelled and motivated to buy his course. His presentation was, in fact, quite compelling even with the lack of educational content in it.
I should mention that the thing that put me over the top to buy was his offer of a free laptop. What a joke - more on that later.
I spend several weeks doing my best to understand the materials. Then, I attended his eBay Accademy training. What waste of time. The entire focus of the workshop was to sell me more stuff when I hadn't seen any results from the first part of the program.
After attending this workshop, which provided little value, I immediately asked for a refund. I was told that I wasn't entitled to one, since I had attended the workshop and used the program for longer than the 3 day cancellation period.
As a business person, I can accept as a response. However, I still can't help from feeling misled. So, I decided to do some research on Chris Bowser. It was these findings that let me to the conclusion that Chris Browser is a scam artist and a fraud.
Here are my findings:
#1) Chris states in his offer that I am to receive this software with my purchase:
He states this is a $2995 Value. HOWEVER, I can get the exact same software for free here:
Even this is simply an affiliate program for Terapeak. ANYONE IN THE WORLD can get this software for a few dollars a month.
#2) I've learned that Chris Bowser has NEVER sold his eBay Academy for $2995. How can this be the value of this event?
#3) Chris Bowser claims that at one point he was listing (after just a few months) 500 to 1000 auctions every week. This would make him one of the top powersellers on eBay. Do a search for top powersellers and he is no where to be found.
#4) 7 years ago, there was automated eBay listing tools. Therefore Chris Bowser had to list 1000 items per week manually. That's about impossible for anyone...
#4) If Chris Bowser was really listing 4000 items/month as he claims after just a few months, why did it take him 3 1/2 years before he had a positive cash flow of $15000. It just doesn't add up. Let's conclude that 3 1/2 years later he was still listing only 4000 items per month. That means that Chris averaged $3.50 per item sold.
I asked around and nobody seems to be able to find Chris Bowsers eBay ID. If he can show his ID it would solve everything. Let me tell you what you should look for:
7 years of selling on eBay and 1000 items per week is 52000 items listed per year or 350,000 items listed on eBay in the last 7 years. If 50% of the people buy, he would have 175000 successful transactions and more than 150,000 feedback. There are not very eBay sellers recognized with this type of volume that I've found in my research and Chris Bowser definitely isn't one of them.
In conclusion, don't waste your money on this scam and rip off artist unless he shows you his eBay ID before you buy his program. His program doesn't work. His inflated values of his program don't work. The laptop isn't work the hardware it's made with. His workshop is a complete waste of time. AVOID CHRIS BOWSER!
