Is Dan Lok a scam?

1 answers


Dan Lok is a scammer. Many people who have paid for his course, have said that they basically ended up getting upsold to another course called "the inner circle". The students did get some useful information at the first course, but it wasn't worth the money they paid. Mind you, this next course costs about $2500, which is a ton of money. Especially when you have already bought a course that didn’t teach you what it should have taught you.

He wants his students to call him Sifu and always upsells them to a more expensive course and none of the courses teach what he promises. He has also made a video on YouTube showing a live sales call where he wants to mentor someone for 2 hours at a $5,000/h rate and the guy just says yes. It’s obvious that Dan Lok’s time isn’t worth $5,000 an hour, and when you watch the live sales call, you realize that it looks scripted, and he cuts the video in multiple places.

On his website he claims that he became a millionaire by the age of 27. But nowhere does he ever mention how he became a millionaire. From all we know, he could have become a millionaire by selling courses on how to become a millionaire. He always talks about you getting rich if you listen to what he says, but he never mentions how you can actually become rich. He may mention that in his books and courses, but it’s shady to always tell people in your titles that they can become rich by listening to your tips, but then never tell them the tips in your video. That’s basically clickbaiting.

You are way better off buying a course on something specific on Udemy or use the free courses on YouTube, Google and tips from Reddit. Anyone who charges this much for a course without having a history of at least one successful business, is probably trying to scam you. It is hard to find any information about Dan Lok's previous business, and with the number of students he has, he is probably making all his money by selling courses.
