Stephen Hauser claims to be a 6 figure digital marketing agency owner. I was presented an opportunity to learn in a mastermind group from him ultimately being scammed out of $1000, his promise/guarantee being, " I will show you how to create your own digital marking agency and by the end of our mastermind secure your agency at least 1 monthly retainer (client)."

Stephen Hauser's promises fell short immediately and the sketchiness was apparent right from the beginning. Starting with the location and the set schedule, Stephen Hauser boasted about hosting the class in a penthouse suite providing plenty of space and snacks for all while we worked.

Instead our established schedule was completely disregarded upon his arrival. He would communicate poorly though group text only essentially making up the schedule as he went along just to fit it around his activities and the location wound up to be a lousy little apartment room off of Air bnb.

On the 1st semi full day that we did get to learn, Stephen showed up to teach us still high from smoking weed prior. It was absurdly unproductive because Stephen was far too out of it to provide any substantial knowledge to us and he didn't.

We covered simple background knowledge and basics of Google & Facebook ads manager along with things like SEO and that was it. After a few hours Stephen needed to sleep from smoking so we cut things short and ended for the day.

After only just beginning the actual content and having gone through only a very very brief introduction on the process of starting my own agency, on day 2 out of the 5 Stephen Hauser was meant to host the class, he skipped town actually taking a flight home completely out the blue on everybody involved deliberately ensuring no one was able to get in contact with him. This went on for over 3 full days without anyone hearing a word since he had left town. 

After incessant failed attempts of getting in contact with Stephen, he finally sent out a response in our group chat still dodging getting in contact with us it was an attempt at damage control and another false promise, Stephen claimed that he was willing to do video calls and phone calls to make up for leaving so briefly. This was just another claim with no merit behind it because he never was heard from again.

Stephen Refused to give me a refund for this hoax of a "mastermind class" that he put on, he is shady, unprofessional, untrustworthy and immature. Do not do business with Stephen Hauser if given a chance, he is a scammer.

Stephen is a good man not a scammer

AUTHOR: Ben - (United States)

POSTED: Thursday, January 16, 2020

The author in this complaint is just salty because he isn’t successful because he didn’t apply the teachings that Stephen taught him. He is probably a kid just desperate for money because he got fired or something. Stephen is an ethical business man not a scammer and I’ve done a lot of business with him over the years.

He built a legitimate marketing agency by getting results for his clients. He brought me results and delivers on his promises. Any time there is an issue, he is the first to have great communication and try to fix the problem. The original poster of this has to be on crack and is just a lonely, poor, sad individual who has nothing better to do than to attack someone he is jealous of who took him under his wing.

Parker I don’t blame Stephen for leaving early being that you’re probably some crazy sociopath who just wants to harass him for money. If you’re crying over $1000 you’ll probably never going to be successful. Take personal responsibility for being a failure at business! Don’t blame your ex mentors for your disaster of a life!

Ben,  I do not know you nor do you know me or anything at all about this situation, you couldn’t possibly know anything about what happened with me and Stephan because of that. You have 0 connection to me and you have no knowledge of what happened so thank you for this meaningless post.

Everything you stated was purely conjecture, again nothing to prove anything that you claim since it never happened and plenty of childish insults for good measure and a grand display of maturity.

Once Stephan Hauser takes accountability for his actions this can be over, please you are not fooling anybody Stephan return me my money.

 "LOL Your a clown” Encapsulating the childishness of Stephan Hauser perfectly. For him this seems to be a funny joke. Do you Stephan Hauser have any bit of proof whatsoever to back any of your claims that you showed 2 methods or anything else? No. Whereas I have everything.

Even other testimonies agreeing that you DIDN’T. Maybe you can’t believe this was written because you aren’t the victim of being scammed??? Understand how much effort this takes to put all this out there and that when the others involved post their side further incriminating you, there will be no doubt for anyone about what you did or the truth about you.

Making up something like this would be of no benefit to me in any way, I am simply seeking out my rightful compensation. Please if anyone at all has questions related to the report or a similar experience to share do not hesitate to reach out and contact me You can reach me at: Pmc328@gmail.com 425-223-1380 Parker McLaughlin

So where should i start...

So i was there for 2 days paid total $500 for the whole thing promoted by a man named Christian Lakes.

I then flew in and booked a airbnb and did a full 2 day event working hands on On THEIR schedule and trained and taught them 2 different strategies to get leads and clients. I even set it up on their business manager and actually fired off leads while i was there.

It was also about 4 months ago i believe? 

I am in pure disbelief that Parker who wrote this has the audacity to reach out to me and threaten me and my family?

I taught sales on last day, the systems i use. I brought a partner who also taught who stayed longer to keep going on the training

His ticket supposably was $700, there were 3 people and i got paid $500?

So please let me know what the hell?
