Don't fall for Marks kids and wife in those videos he loves to share. What a Bad Egg for the Coastal Synergy Group.

Mark sold me a bad directors release. When I sent in my order to the shipping center, it was returned with my check.

I'm not surprised as this guy really seems to have some serious integrity issues. I did some research and found another director who shared how Mark went to a training event in Nashville in February and stole another directors team member with enticement.

Now, I see this guy has moved onto Global Resorts Network. I guess he's scammed all the people he could with Coastal and Now he's onto this Global Resort thing.

save your money, find another director, find another opportunity but whatever you do....stay away from this guy. He's a scam artist.

Question for Thomas of Atlanta or anyone who can answer these questions

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

POSTED: Tuesday, July 01, 2008
You mentioned that once you learned how to work the vacation system you were able to take the trips.

How do you find out what trips are covered by a particular coupon for a travel certificate before you send it in?

Are there web sites where you can check out a trip?

How do you reach a real person to ask the questions that aren't covered in any of the materials?

Can anyone tell me why coastal makes it so hard to get questions answered? A lot of us aren't interested in listening to calls about the business side of the program.

If Coastal had a website where you could look for answers and submit questions, it would be helpful.

I was told they got too many questions to be able to have a live person answer them.
Other companies much larger than coastal do it. Why can't they?

Thank you

Mark Hoverson is what he says he is!

Mark Hoverson is what he says he is, Period! I am also a member of GRN. We all have to remember people do not like to take responsability for their failures. Mark is no different then any other successful Network Marketer. Team members who don't succeed simply don't do the work. They tend to blame the Big Guy in the Company.

I haven't made any money with Mark and GRN because I haven't focused on the work and procedures Mark suggest. I take full responsability for my lack of focus. It's surely not Marks fault. I can still call him and he answers his own phone. He has taught me alot and I thank him for that. Mark is a good man and puts his family first. If you don't succeed, in any venture, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOURSELF.

Uhhhh....Mr. Hoverson.......

You're a good one to talk about anonymity. I went to your site and all that's there is a lot of rhetoric about some vague, unidentified "system". There are hundreds of "systems" on the internet and elsewhere. Seems like one issue is common to most: lack of any real "meat" as to what it is alluded that makes a person so wealthy. Your (U Tube) stammering, obviously heavily edited dialogue is just so much yada yada.
Yeah! You and the rest of the internet "get rich" gurus also have one thing in common. Money starts movement immediately. Right away! Unfortunately, it's ALWAYS in the wrong direction to make anyone rich except the promotor.

Read this "rip off" report and LAUGH!

AUTHOR: Jani Teeter - (Canada)

POSTED: Sunday, November 11, 2007
I would like to support my esteemed collegue Mark by pointing out that the author of this report "Marsha b" with the very same unique user ID has managed to move from San Diego to Vancouver BC, have a baby, restart her coastal business with highly successful and well known CSG directors TWICE before then finally finding success with the so called "official" system of the self entitled BOD. Amazingly, all of this was accomplished between October 30 and November 8 2007!

The readers can make up their own mind as to the credibility of "Sophie". As neither Mark nor have this Sophie aka Pamela in our respective groups, we are fully aware that both of these posted rip off reports are plant, and entirely bogus. I personally am grateful that my success in this business is well known by others, in just over a year I have realized many of my dreams with the help and support of many. For that I am truly grateful.

It is proof to me that I have "made it" when I become a target for malicious behavior. I stand my on ethics and integrity in all things, not just my business. In fact, ethics are my background and education. It saddens me greatly that anyone representing this great business- ESPECIALLY one claiming to be at the BOD would attempt foolishly to use less then ethical marketing techniques and take advantage of those who are less informed about internet marketing and promotions. I for one, encourage and commend all potential Coastal Associates who do THROUGH research and really dig in and look behind the scenes at the person delivering the message as well as HOW the message is delivered.

Slamming one group or individual/s openly or privately by telling half truths or stating personal opinion as fact or even in this cowardly fashion by telling outright lies is not my idea of creditable leadership or honest marketing. I would encourage you, Sophie/Pamela- to make right- but I suspect that I do in fact, know your true identity and realize your business would take a serious downfall if you were to admit to your deciet in this and other things. It is very clear to anyone doing their own INDEPENDANT research what is going on here-because of the use of the terms "official system" and the implication that the CSG does not "share official coastal information" etc etc. Now tired marketing lines that are seen in many other internet postings. Perhaps the true author might consider a more positive message and tactic?? They say that history is written by the victors- and I would suggest that marketing is written by the promotors who stand to benefit from it. Focus on PEOPLE as unique individuals and not consumers. That would be a better then great start.

I know this post is entirely false because Sophie B (a unique user ID on registration which can not be duplicated) has filled a report regarding my business partner, Pierre Trudeau and myself (Jani Teeter) on November 8th, after making this false report on my fellow successful CSG collegue Mark Hoverson. It seems that CSG members of the "high five" club that have independant internet presence are a new marketing target. Silly enough, not even bothering to create a new unique user ID-but instead signing on the post "Pamela" while the user ID clearly states Sophie B on the bogus report filled about myself and my partner on Nov 8.

We know that the truth always rises to the top- there is no mistake in me selecting my domain name www.the-truth-about-coastal.com. Anyone choosing to read it- every word of which I wrote myself to date- will have a good grip on who I am, and what I stand for. As you so clearly pointed out- sophie/pamela- it DOES resonate with people BECAUSE it is honest and I have made every effort to be complete, through and upfront in its many pages. I would also like to let everyone here know that I HAVE NEVER had to refund anyone on my 90 day guarentee program- simply because people DO find success through our system, support and leadership. Really, our goal (and ideal the goal of all Coastal Directors even outside the CSG) is to create other successful Coastal Directors. To me, that is the POINT of being in a Coastal business as a leader of others and a director. I am only truly successful by helping others towards success. That is my purpose, and in fact part of my personal and business mission statements. Anyone wishing to have a copy of that should ask.

The CSG is the Coastal SYNERGY Group- and reading this post- I hope everyone can see that SYNERGY is about working together, standing together and serving others. Targeting others or groups that have success within the Coastal Vacations business is NOT on our adgenda, nor furthering our mission or purpose as a group of individuals! We support and encourage a WE team, not a ME team. Creating success through SYNERGY in this business for others is our highest purpose and our message. Please read the ethical business and anti-spam policies on all CSG "winningwithcoastal" websites to see what it takes to be CSG- and know why in order to use the leading CSG MAC system, we all must abide by these important guidelines. Mine can be found at (((link redacted))). Marks can be found at (((link redacted))). Look at the very bottom of the page to see links to the ethical business and anti-spam policies.

Prospective CSG business owners: You can be assured that any CSG director with a VALID rip off report or complaint that contravened these policies would not be able to use the CSG MAC system and be a part of the CSG.

Sophie b/Pamela- please accept my sympathies and suggestions and know I hope in my heart that you find guidance and true success in your life with a clear conscience.

This is Mark Hoverson.

AUTHOR: Mark Hoverson - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, October 30, 2007
This ripp-off report against me is pretty comical. The style of writing is identical to another anonymous 'report' against me (this site is completely unregulated, and actually slanderous by law...but that's another story).

This time, the author choose to be an unreachable woman from San Diego (notice there is no real last name, or phone number to reach 'her'). But, let's get straight to the point, the Coastal Shipping Center accepts my Director's releases all the time (and they have never rejected one). Go to my site www.4000everyweek.com, and view the many video testimonies of real people who make sales on my team and use their director's releases to purchase the product (I actually include their real names and cities, so you can actually contact them if you wish).

If Coastal didn't accept my releases, I MYSELF wouldn't be able to purchase product from Coastal (I purchase multiple cases every month...by the way). This rippoff report site is a brilliant concept by it's advertisers (who drive free traffic here and then make money on the side banners getting clicked on), but as a reputable website it is a joke. There is no accountability. By the way, if you wanted to, you could log into this website and write a report about anybody for anything, and put just a fake first name, and generic city with no reachable phone number...and POOF it's on the web. Don't be gullible by this stuff. Be amused instead.

And yes, I really like Global Resorts Network too. Check out my site at www.myglobalsecrets.com and feel free to contact me directly at 443-803-4173.
