It was July 25th 2016.  An email from Allen Martin (real name probably Christian Gasper from Germany) hit my inbox from with the following offer (excerpts listed below):

The Offer:

"We build you this $200/Day Affiliate Business in just 3 weeks from the day you enrolled."

"The regular price for this Affiliate $200/Day DFY Business is usually $9997.

But for a small group of people, we've blocked out 40 early bird spots for this
very special offer.

The early bird price for this very unique DFY offer is $997 for those happy
40 people.

BUT...21 spots are already taken"

"You can either pay via one time payment or via split pay of 3 payments
of each $397 every 30 days."

"- We need around 2-3 weeks for testing and tweaking the campaign.
Then you will see at least $100/Day. And after 6-7 weeks you will make
$200/Day easily."

"- If you are not happy with the results during the first 3 months,
we refund your money back. No shenanigans"

There were many other emails with similar or conflicting claims.  I have uploaded a PDF document containing some of the emails received from this scammer at:
www.allenmartinscam.com/emails.pdf
Given time I will add many more.

The address below, listed on the email is probably fake
AMC Marketing
Greenwich High Rd 21, Greenwich
London 06831

Payment went to Christian Gasper via Samcart
amcmarketing.acemlnb.com/lt.php?s=a6a989be2128e786a1577a91fc19bbe5&i=36A65A1A199
Whois info for his 2 domains suggests the name Christian Gasper from Germany with two different German addresses.
imallenmartin.com
marketingwithallen.com

The only tel # is a German number +49.17630681991 in the Whois info and is the same for both domains

Allen Martin promised to set up a DFY Affiliate Business in 3 months that would create $200/day with $100/day guaranteed after 2/3 weeks.  However no action was taken to even begin setting up this business.

Numerous other victims have reported similar scams by him on this website and on the comments at www.allenmartinscam.com

Signing Up

The offer seemed too good to be true so I signed up on an installment basis ($395 per month for 3 months) to reduce risk.

It made no sense to me that he should hand over a business making $200 per day for a monthly sum of $395 rather than keep it for himself.  When I quizzed him he said he intended to roll the offer out later at $9997.

I had purchased low cost digital products from Allen before without any major problem.  However I still was concerned that the offer seemed too good to be true and rather than make the full payment signed up on an installment basis ($395 per month for 3 months) to cut my losses should the worst come to the worst.  

I signed up on 26th July but all I received from him were excuses to put me off.  During the pre-sales period Allen Martin replied very promptly.  I even joked with him once asking him if he did not have a bed to go to.  However after the order I found it quite difficult to get replies.

Red Flag & Scam Experience

What was a red flag for me was an email I received soon after I had made my first subscription informing people whose first month was up that they would not receive any service until they had made their second payment.  Yet they were supposed to have been in possession of a profitable business two to three weeks after signing up.

When I heard nothing about my business I contacted Allen.  Firstly he said he would set my site up immediately after the sales campaign was finished at the start of August.  Later he said his people would have it done in 10 days for me.  10 days came and went.  Then he said he would do it himself and I would have a profitable business within 3 days.  Again nothing happened.  
 
He had always said he would refund any payment (in fact triple it) if people were not satisfied at any time up to three months.  I asked for a refund but my refund request was totally ignored.  I threatened to expose him as a Scammer on forums and other public places but he just replied that slander was a criminal offence, in an effort to silence me.
 
As mentioned above, although the email address from which the fraud originated was support@imallenmartin.com, he also uses the domain marketingwithallen.com and marketing with allen features in his gmail address used to further his scam (marketingwithallen@gmail.com).    

Action Taken:

I have completed a report to "Action Fraud" run by the UK police at www.actionfraud.police.uk.  CRN: NFRC160901566595

I have also contacted the FTC. Reference Number: 76884825

I have also contacted his web host using the email address "hostmaster@one.com" asking them to suspend his web hosting.  This was the reply I received:

"We have no possibility or intention of being a judge in these cases, and therefore we advise you to direct your enquiry to the owner of the website which can be seen via the ordinary who-is lookup or to go via the system of justice (enforcement court) and get a court order against the website owner from a EU or US court stating that the owner should remove the content.

In the case of customer information, we ask that you provide a court order stating what customer information is to be handed over.

Upon receipt of a court order we will act responsibly and follow the directions of that court order.

We also refer to our privacy policy which can be found on our website one.com/en/info/privacy-policy We also want to draw your attention to the fact, that a website with its contents can be moved to another webhost/registrar within a few days and that a court order against the website owner in this situation is a more useful tool for you to pursue your rights.

If you wish, we can forward a message to the domain owner. If you want us to do this, we ask that you write out the message to be forwarded in full as we do not word or make changes to the forwarded message in order to avoid any confusion or misunderstandings."

I have contacted his domain registrar for his two websites by emailing "abuse@ascio.com".  Nothing has been heard from the registrar.

I now intend to contact JVZoo and possibly the Warrior Forum (if he had digital products marketed there also).  I know he had products with JVZoo.

The more people that can contact all of these bodies, the more likely that we will be to see some action from them.

My DFY police file reported

POSTED: Monday, November 07, 2016

Dear Allen Martin or should I say Christian Gasper,

Just stop kidding yourself.... you messed up big time! YOU are coming DOWN. It's just a matter of time.

You have a ton of police files against you, not olny in the UK but all around Europe.

So, before you decide to make a even a bigger mistake (with your "life"), refund all the people you scammed

and get off a lighter court charge.

as they say: You can run but you can't hide ...LOL.

You are not alone

POSTED: Thursday, October 06, 2016

Hi tnt USA, sorry to hear of your similar experience.  You are not alone.  There are probably over a dozen people who have commented at the blog post http://allenmartinscam.com/allen-martin-scam/ with similar stories.  We are pooling our resources and more especially to help people where possible to avoid the scam and to obtain a refund if they have been scammed.  If you have not already left a comment there, please consider it as the number of comments there adds weight to our contact with banking, policing and other authorities. 

Also if you have not already done so, contact your bank, credit card or PayPal or whatever method was used for payment and request a refund as soon as possible.  You can use the url I quoted above and also the ripoff reports on this site to add weight to your claim.

And yes, Allen Martin from England is really Christian Gasper from Germany.  You can get his email and telephone number from the Whois information for his sites or from the blog post above.

Good Luck

Allen/Christian, I can't believe the cheek of your reply re. the Allen Martin Scam

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Thursday, September 29, 2016

Allen/Christian

I can't believe the cheek of your reply concerning the Allen Martin Scam.  It is very clear cut that you are running a scam.  Here are the facts in black and white in answer to what you have written above.

1. You advertised this as a DFY (Done for you) solution so by it's definition there was nothing for me to do after supplying the my initial accounts information when I signed up on July 26th. This information was sent to you on July 26th (same day).  A copy of the email where I sent this information to you same day is included in the pdf document at www.allenmartinscam.pdf.

You confirmed that this was all we had to do in one of your emails. You couldn't have been more specific.

Question:-What do you need from me to make this offer work?
Answer:-All we need from you are your Auto responder Log in details and the log in details for your domain and hosting so we can set up and upload all Follow up emails and the funnel to your hosting too.

Question:-Is this Offer really Hands Free?
Answer:-Yes. We build the funnel incl. all products for every early bird customer individually PLUS we set up your autoresponder, we upload the entire funnel to your domain PLUS we drive the traffic for 3 months to this funnel.

2. You mentioned momentum.  Since I placed the order I have sent in the region of 20 or more emails to you to find out what is going on.  Although you replied to some of these with delaying tactics, you did not initiate any of the communication nor did you do anything whatsoever with my accounts to create the income that you promised.

Also since the scam here are some of the things I have done:
a) sent a multitude of emails to you
b) compiled a report for the FTC
c) compiled a report for the UK police
d) compiled a report for this "Ripoff Reports" website
e) contacted your web host requesting them to suspend your site
f) contacted your domain registrar requesting them to withdraw your domain.
g) purchased the domain www.allenmartinscam.com
h) created a report on that site concerning your scam
i) created and uploaded a pdf document containing some of the emails from and to you (still many more to add)
j) communicated with people who commented on the www.allenmartinscam.com site.
k) commenced link building to the www.allenmartinscam.com site

I have both a primary degree and a master's degree, am involved with community development and I manage electronic design projects for a living.  Does that sound to you like someone who is not able to keep up with the momentum?  

3. You mentioned that I was trying to destroy your reputation.  No, you have done that yourself.  My role is just to make people aware of it and to protect others from the scam and to help bring you to justice.

4. I don't believe that Christian Gasper is a different person than Allen Martin.  Why would you, Allen Martin, allow someone else (Christian Gasper) to be the registered owner of your domains (the life-blood of your business)and even more so why would you have the proceeds of your business go into Christian Gasper's account?   

You are masquerading as someone with an English name and an English address, yet you previously talked about how English was not your native language so you are not English.  It is highly likely that you are not Christian Gaspar with addresses in Germany and a German telephone number showing up on the domain whois documentation.

I am sure that when the police catch up with Christian Gasper they will see that his image is the same as the image of Allen Martin that appears on your websites.  Just in case you considered removing those images, I have already taken a copy which will be available to any authorities who require it.

Even if you are not Christian Gasper, if he is your partner as you state, then he is equally complicit in the scam.

5. You stated "It's really sad to see that specifically people, who Allen helped with the program more than needed, and more than agreed when they enrolled to it, try to destroy his reputation in such a shabby way like this person is intending to do here."

You didn't do anything at all, so how can you have helped more than needed.  By your logic, I have helped every person in the world more than needed.

6. You make out that as if I am the only one who has been scammed.  I have only started looking at this and to date I know of about six or seven others who have been scammed.  I am sure there are many more.  Many of them don't want to come out and say they have been scammed because they feel foolish and it was their own fault for not being more diligent.  

It is similar to the situation when people are raped. They fear coming forward because they somehow think they may be too blame due walking in a bad area, wearing a short skirt or whatever.  However the bottom line is that like the rapist it is the scammer who is at fault.  

People should not have to fear being scammed by you or anyone else.  I believe many more will come forward and let their story be heard.

7. If it was not a fraud you would have returned my money and that of others when they requested it and as stated in your guarantee.  Then there would be no need for sites like this.

You stated in your emails "If you are not happy with the results during the first 3 months, we refund your money back. No shenanigans".  I dread to think what would have happened if there had been shenanigans?  You even promised to triple our money back in some emails.

If you want to help restore your reputation, Christian, refund the money that I gave you in good faith and for which I have received absolutely nothing in return.  I will be happy to add that information here and on my own site so that people may know that you honoured the guarantee.

Don't wait for the authorities to force you to do this along with a lengthy prison term.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Statement

AUTHOR: Allen Martin - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, September 29, 2016

First of all, Allen Martin is the owner of the company. Christian Gasper has nothing to do with Allen Martin.

He's just a partner of his company, you cannot blame him for anything.

However, the person who blames Allen Martin for scamming him is just trying to destroy Allen's

reputation because of the fact, that he's not able to keep up the momentum and follow the guidance 

Allen provided him with. It's really sad to see that specifically people, who Allen helped with the program more than needed, and more than agreed when they enrolled to it, try to destroy his reputation in such a shabby way like this person is intending to do here.

Our mission is NOT to leave people in the dark NOR do we scam anyone!!
