A convicted (and sent to prison) scam artist, Dr. Mike or now "Magic" Mike Cioppa, who has been featured on the Ripoff Report for the past few years has resurfaced with a new scam. This time he is conning people out of $97.00 a month with the promise to "force them to make money." Like all classic pyramid schemes he throws them back $50.44 OF THEIR MONEY creating the false impression they're on the road to success. What most fail to recognize is that he keeps the remaining $46.56. He is shooting fish in a barrel by using the scam artist's haven Warrior Forum to perpetuate this ruse as his primary URL platform. He uses many different alias on Youtube.com to broadcast his message. It appears he, or one of his MLM victims has purchased fake Youtube account names to post the same gushing results to lure others in, thinking it must be legit.

 
This is the granddaddy of all scams where the premise if it's too good to be true it probably is stands firm. Nothing except info, bogus bonuses, erroneously gold and platinum membership levels, "coaching" and big dreams are offered here.
 
He stresses to those who enroll for $97.00 a month to vigilantly counter online messages made to discredit his scam because it ultimately hurts their bottom line/return. He uses alias accounts to do the same. All messages have the reoccurring theme, they're not certain how valid the content is BUT they've signed up and have already made a sale. Part of the strategy mentioned above, take $97.00 and give them back almost immediately $50.44 OF THEIR MONEY as their prize while he keeps nearly the equal amount for himself.

Michael G. Cioppa Albany NY aka

AUTHOR: Ricky2014 - ()

I saw on another website Magic Mike Cioppa is running a website called DailyDealGuru.com and also LocalLeads911.com

This guy thinks he's the "Guru" of everything. He was the "Guru" of Warrior Forum, MagicMikeIm, Dr. Magic Mike, IMGuerillas, etc. Documentation online indicates for the past twenty years he has been scamming people out of money. Cioppa has been in jail as a result of. Not sure what gives him the impression he's a "guru" of anything other than ripping people off.

Employee Success University Scam by Same Guy

AUTHOR: David - ()

Mike Cioppa ran a scam where he posed as the "President" of the Employee Success University (now out of business). He claimed to be a Doctor (Psychologist). When I called Concordia University they could not verify that information. I later learned there was no University so I was not surprised to see he was still up to his old tricks when I heard about the recent ponzi scheme.
