    I don't think mike wrote those.
    Look at all of the spelling errors. Guru or not he should have spell check or least a command of the english language.

    Can you confirm this is actually him? Emails can be spoofed; I could send you a million dollar ?you?ve won the lottery? from the Whitehouse?s domain. I?m sure he would have the least decency to spell correctly. I doubt it?s him so convince me, I love drama :)

    Not trying to scare you man but if I were you, I'd remove them, you do not want Mike pissed at you, I think that he can shut you down and close your shop because of his pull and how many followers he has.

    I believe they are from Mike, I've had communications from him directly where there are spelling errors all over the place.

    I've had a chat with Mrs. Filsaime on Gmail chat, and can assure you that he was NOT a 3rd grade spelling bee champ... even at the age of 38.

    Is this real? Who knows... but, obviously, he is not going to be suing anyone if he did, indeed, write those words... those are physical threats, bud.

    Well sending you emails like that is just plain dumb. Maybe he is right and what you are doing and saying about his website is slander. But what is to stop you now from taking down the stuff you have up now and posting the emails he sent you instead? Surely emails sent to you by him threatening you, aren't slander, are they now?

    At-Least remove it from BHW! I?ve also witnessed his influence in the marketing world and it?s powerful. You actually look cool fisting-it out with a big-time marketer (if it?s him).

    It's not internet threats, it's business and yes, Mike can and will shut you down. If you're in the game you'd understand.

    You've just got a sane reaction from Mike. What else did you expect?

    Guys, he is NOT that powerful lol You act like he's a fuckin' modern day Al Capone and everyone is scared.

    Face it - he REALLY cannot do shit but make legitimate complaints. Fuck his contacts, they're not going to fuck over their entire careers for this douche bag.

    I think it's someone trying to get him into deeper water. Someone who knows how to run someone's name through the mud.

    I never heard of those two names mentioned that work for PayPal and Google, so I decided to do a search... nothing on Arif Sayer and only 1 thing comes up for Kelli Povich, who works at another company, not PayPal.

    This is either BS or the OT trying to get traffic to their site.

    PS - For those who believe he IS that powerful, I've RIPPED this guy a new asshole all over the net A FEW TIMES, so much that he contacted me through my personal email. He didn't talk this bad (threats) and all he did was offer me money to stop lol...

    So, how powerful do you think he is? Not very. These blogs were high traffic IM blogs, mind you.

    Well that's definitely Mike's personal email address so if it's him then I'd email him and verify it. If it is then I would surely do as I was instructed to do, especially if I wanted to continue to market on the internet.

    Mike's not going to come to your door and beat you up, but he will make your online life a living hell and you'll never sell online again.

    Not that I am in involved in anything that would warrant it ...

    If anyone send me some retarded fucking email threat - I sure as hell am not responding. That email probably would have been deleted or ignored without me even reading it.

    Well that's your choice to do such but I think that I would considering that this person is trying to market his own stuff using Mike's name. Now Mike saw that and is obviously pissed and I do not think that Mike would make a threat like this and not keep it.

    Yeah, well that part sucks ...they will have to deal with that.

    But if they ignore it - let the legal action speak for itself. If they are doing something they are not allowed to be doing ...due to copyright protection or other - then there are obvious legal ramifications.

    The first of which would be a simple Cease and Desist -

    Not "I will get on a plane and come to your house and beat you into the earth" ...or whatever was said.

    Sounds outrageous and foolish. - But hey, maybe he's an emotional guy.

    Yah, Mike did fly off the hook on that, maybe he just is having a bad day guys, I mean he could very well have seen one too many people bashing his name to make a buck and it pissed him off, either way I do not think the way he handled the situation and think for someone of his level, he would have done this in a more professional manner.

    This is absolute bullshit, I don't buy this for a minute. Whoever the guy is that started this thread is full of shit. This is his way of promoting his products here.
