We’ve reviewed a number of alleged Erectile Dysfunction “systems” promoted on the Net, but the 3 Step Stamina scheme is one of the nastiest Internet rip-offs around. It cleverly plays on male fears, as it exploits ‘performance’ anxiety and erectile dysfunction. As you’ll read below, you are all getting played by clever, but greedy, marketers….and this one is almost a carbon copy of the ED Miracle scam. A lengthy story is offered by an anonymous author about some porn industry secret that only pornstars are allowed to know about. Here’s the deal: you are getting ripped-off.
3 Step Stamina is one of a number of Net offerings promising to “fix” male impotence. Their slick websites ask for the “low price” of $37-39.95 for what appears to be an ebook or a “program” that “guarantees” improved sexual performance. This is a textbook version of the numerous other $39.95 infoscams that have infected the Web over the last three years. They almost all charge the mysteriously-set price of $37-39. (We’ve reviewed some of these scams and they are laughably bad) Here’s how it works: you are treated to a videomercial that touts the “proven way to get hard” Is it a scam? Is it a rip-off? Does it work? You’ll never find out, largely because of an increasingly pernicious Internet industry that uses fake product review sites to hide customer reactions. You’ll also never be able to find out about the credentials of the authors — none apparently exist on the Internet, nor are they provided at his own alleged web site. So, should you spend the $39? We recommend not, for the following reasons:
1. There’s a reason this sales pitch is slick — they spend a lot of marketing money to get it to you. Who is paying for that? You are. And, like many scammers, they are using Clickbank to sell their ebook so don’t assume you’ll get a refund. “Rock solid guarantee”…..don’t bet on it. The scammers bet on the fact that most consumers won’t seek refunds until after the 60-day period expires. In fact, they count on it.
2. If you look for a review of the product, you are deluged with lots of fake review or “scam” sites that simply direct you to the main sales site or offer some officious pablum talking about how the product is highly rated or recommended. The marketers for this service pay 78% commission for any referrals they generate. So these “affiliate marketers” create create fake review sites which effectively thwart any customer who is looking for real reviews. It is also a tactic to obscure any customers who have posted complaints or alerts about fraudulent claims. This affiliate marketing trick makes it very difficult for consumers to detect this and other such scams, As one persevering blogger has noted, scam artists rely upon these fraudulent reviewers to be using tags like: “does it work?”, “is it a scam?” or “verified review” to suck unsuspecting consumers into this fraud.
3. The so-called pornstar, Aaron Wilcoxx, the alleged mastermind behind this scheme, seems to be quite elusive. He’s listed as an actor in five films by IMDB. Yet, there’s no bio on him and a Google search on his name turns up no porn films. Even more suspiciously, there is no photo of him online or on his own website. If the creator of the so-called erectile dysfunction miracle worker is untraceable, good luck contacting anyone for support or for refunds! If the website fails to feature the credentials of the author and/or if a Google search turns up nothing about this person, you can bet this is a marketer driven product. Most of these sites feature unknown “experts” who are largely fictional creations by the scammers.
4. What are they really offering for the $39? According to one reviewer, they claim that some penile exercises, a bunch of “superfoods” and herbs and an improved mindset will do the trick. The last one might actually help — the first two are just mental placebos. This is almost a carbon copy of all of the other fake ED websites peddling the same dross.
What 3 Step Stamina is really all about is upselling. Once they get your $39, they’ll attempt to sell you even more useless or overpriced services. Here’s what they tout in their pitch to affiliate marketers who direct business to them:
They are bragging that they can get even more money out of you and they are willing to pay over 100% of that first $39 you give them to those affiliates who steer you to them. We see this kind of scam all of the time; it is an almost textbook scheme by which Internet marketers overcharge consumers for dubious information, much of which is readily available on the Net for free. The typical price charged by these other scammers is $39….identical to what other marketers want to charge your credit card. When it comes to erectile dysfunction (and any disease for that matter), nothing beats the advice and recommendations of your doctor. Erectile dysfunction is caused by a variety of factors, and only your doctor can identify the exact cause of your ED and prescribe proper treatment.
Our bottom line: you don’t have to spend $39 to get information about how to improve sexual performance And beware ANY Net-based sales pitch that has uncredentialed, slick video presentations with no independent reviews. It may not be a scam, but it is probably a rip-off because it is overpriced for what it is offering. In this case, there’s lots of good diet information in the marketplace offered at a fraction of the cost of most weight loss schemes. Save your hard-earned money. If you are serious about wanting to address sexual dysfunction, you can find lots of free and credible information at a number of reputable websites including the Mayo Clinic and Livestrong. This information is FREE. And it is scientifically valid. The ED Reverser is overpriced and scientifically unproven.
One additional warning: once you give them your money, you’ll be tagged as “meat”. Once they know that you’ll fall for this pitch, the same marketers will be coming back to you over and over and over for other such pitches. So understand that if you pay these marketers anything….let alone $40…..they’ll continue to hound you with more slick schemes designed to prey on your fears and concerns. Don’t open your door or wallet to them.
