UPDATED June 17, 2015 below original story. Russ Ruffino’s high pressure sales tactics recounted from an unhappy customer.
May 21, 2015
This Twitter trick comes up across my feed every day as a promoted ad. He claims to help coaches (we know my love of that word outside of sports team) albeit not as bad as business priestess (aka Money Map to Freedom™ ) but I’m pretty sure I could forgo hanging my entire wardrobe in a closet because I’d have more room on Pinocchio’s ever growing nose.
Business Priestess/ Money Map Alexis Martin aka Ali Shanti has a new business name Law Business Mentors:
Family Wealth Planning Institute, LLC
Lift Foundation Systems, LLC
Its (sic) All Happening, LLC
Eyes Wide Open LLC
New Law Business Model aka Law Business Mentors
Personal Family Lawyer aka America’s Personal Family Lawyer
The Alexis M. Neely 2005 Irrevocable Trust
The AMN 2010 Irrevocable Trust
Let’s start with the website of Russell (Russ) Ruffino which is just another reason that makes him latest contender for the #GodsOfFrauds. “As seen in…” well that looks impressive but we’ve already learned before that looks can be deceiving (and sometimes need a shower).
Russ Ruffino and The New York Times
Maybe I forgot how to Google or something:
Maybe it’s under Russell Ruffino:
If you write a review for a book
it does not make you an author, writer or number-one best seller
Whoops not under Russell Ruffino either. There’s no need to even check the rest of the list he posted on line. Guess what? If someone was really in The New York Times, they’d usually link to the actual article they were mentioned in or that they authored or at the very least screen shot that bad boy. Right out of the gate that’s not doing a lot for Russell (Russ) Ruffino’s credibility which I suspected was lacking when I engaged with him several months ago on Twitter. (I’ll admit after my breaking point for someone who writes about fraud every day red flags tend to jump out and some are so obvious you just try and ignore them.) Fucking Twitter will not allow me to forget or ignore. Despite hitting the little x to dismiss Russell Ruffino’s ads it comes back like a dandelion that no amount of Monsanto pesticide can kill.
I did not save that riveting exchange (and lack the skills to find it my Twitter history) with Russell (Russ) Ruffino but remember he made some claim of bringing in $25o,000 a month with no actual data to support that claim. When I asked for him to substantiate the claim he was unable to (shocker).

And right out the grifter’s guide: Try and make people jealous of your life so they’ll think you’re successful. Also see posing with Porsche. The next time Russell (Russ) Ruffino’s promoted ad comes across my feed I will report his ad to Twitter and suggest anyone else who is having this specific problem or one like it report it as a means to force accountability on the unethical. The false information about being seen in The New York Times along with his claims lacking fact based evidence regarding generating $250K a month are enough for me to know that I would not work with or recommend as a consultant that any of my clients ever work with give Russell (Russ) Ruffino any funding. And before anyone pulls the haters or jealous card: Haters vs. Forced Accountability.

And if you need a good laugh after all the fraud talk head on over to Disrupt Happiness you many recognize the popular for all the wrong reasons Ali Shanti (Alexis Martin Neely or Alexis Neely) from this site. UPDATED:
Great I could make up a spreadsheet too, I can also hand write my name on to The New York Times Best-Seller list, tell people I’m on it but it doesn’t make it truthful or ethical. Yet no word on why he lied about being in The New York Times or in Forbes as it turns out. Any guess as to how Russell (Russ) Ruffino fairs with CNN, NBC, Fox and The Wall Street Journal? Yep-goose egg. Except for this from the Freaking Genius which state that Ruffino has been featured on Huffington Post, CBS and Fox despite being able to find any evidence to support such claims.
So from my count Russell (Russ) Ruffino has lied seven times verified by Google searches.

As predicted when confronted with negative facts a company would rather remain hidden they pull the professionl victim card of haters when it’s really just forced accountability:
@MelaynaLokosky The fact that you won’t apologize shows you have no integrity. Another hater and hypocrite poser. Have a great life.
— Russell Ruffino (@RussRuffino) May 22, 2015
Well that looks a lot like manipulation of the facts, not recognizing the rights of others, lack of shame, remorse, guilt or accountability while placing blame; and he clearly does not like to be challenged on the facts and prefers they remain hidden. Russell (Russ) Ruffino via proven fact based evidence lacks credibility to call my integrity into question. This exchange only reconfirmed that I would never work with or recommend to a client that they work with or support any company that supports Russell (Russ) Ruffino. But it’s nice he phoned a friend to white knight for him:
Hunter Hart white knights for the proven unethical Russell (Russ) Ruffino UPDATED June 17, 2015 When forced to be accountable for his false appropriation of major network logos used to deceive clients, the unethical Russell Ruffino blocked on Twitter.
A few weeks ago one of his unhappy clients* reached out stating they felt they may have been scammed (paid upwards of $10,000 for the program) after high pressure sales tactics with poor-to no customer service or follow up. Russ Ruffino’s unhappy client also stated they purchased the program based off the major network logos on his website which this site proved were deceptive and fraudulent. A true and ethical consultant would never charge all the money up front and would offer clients two choices: % of what the client makes after using the program for a certain period of time or a flat fee paid out over three months but always going with the choice that’s most advantageous to the client. RED FLAG If a consultant states that unless a purchase is made at that moment or else the price will double at a later date: HANG UP THE PHONE AND DO NOT PURCHASE WHEN (NOT IF) THEY CALL YOU BACK PROVIDING A “SPECIAL OFFER.” Unethical companies will often change names in order to distance from past unethical and or illegal behavior. Russell Ruffino also operates under The Art of High Ticket Selling and Russ Ruffino’s Platinum MasterMind. * I will not disclose the email in order to protect the victim who hopefully takes legal action against Mr. Ruffino; but, it’s crucial to get factual information out so that others may make better informed decisions to prevent possible further victimization. Also one brave person coming forward may prompt others to do the same which is a goal of this site. Updated July 9, 2015 Before Forced Accountability: Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand fraudulently used network television and major publication logos as a means to unethically attract business.

Russ Ruffino CAUGHT Unethically Spamming Killing My Career
After Forced Accountability: Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand changed the landing page of his website to his blog page (which no longer shows the fraudulent use of logos) but will remain here on this site as tool to help potential clients make better informed decisions before investing. Thank you to the anonymous reader who posted this change and to all who have commented exposing the negative truth Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand would rather remain hidden.
This appears to be a growing trend: Russ Turner pitched his services of helping others succeed with his free book on his site RoadMap 2 Success on 7.13. 2015 Look closer and you’ll see that Russ Turner states he’s been seen on CBS News, Fox, NBC and ABC. and also goes by the name The Catalyst Kid Yet on Russ Turner’s website The Roadmap 2 Success no mention of television or links to him on CBS News, Fox, NBC or ABC. I’ve reached out to Russ Turner who pitched his product via direct message on Twitter for a response.
