My friend who has been my project manager for a long time recently wrote something to address fake negative reviews about me. I want to thank him publicly and appreciate the time he’s invested in working with me.
I will not add on to what he wrote because I believe it contains the gist of what I wrote earlier this month.
Hi, my name is Peter, and I’ve had the privilege of knowing Ewen Chia personally. In fact, I’ve worked with him for a long time. You might think I’m just trying to defend my long time friend here by saying what they are writing is false. However I want you to see a deeper pattern that’s going on among the very people who are disparaging Ewen.
Here’s what I’ve noticed.
- The things they write about him and my products are fake
I know this is subjective. You may not believe this. So let me proceed straight to the next point.
- They promote their own offers
If you actually read to the end of the reviews, you will see that these people are promoting their own offers. Not just any offer though. I’ve noticed that most, if not all of them, are promoting Wealthy Affiliate. Which brings me to my next point.
- Ewen is not the only guy they’re writing bad stuff about
I browsed through the websites of these people who wrote bad stuff about Ewen and I saw that Ewen is not the only guy who’s been a victim of fake negative reviews. In fact, I see a lot of credible internet marketers as well getting their heat.
- They’re clearly riding on his name to get attention
The name Ewen Chia gets a lot of traffic on the internet. So what’s an easy way to get traffic? Leverage on somebody’s fame. They’re basically leveraging on his name to get views on their website, where they in turn disparage him in hopes to win over their readers to join their own program (Wealthy Affiliate for most of them).
Is this something Wealthy Affiliate is teaching their students to do? To write bad stuff about internet marketers just to get downlines for themselves?

I remember how quite a few of my students were so impacted by what they learnt from me. One of them is Vietnamese and despite not being able to speak or understand English, she still generated income online.
I also had the honor and privilege to meet her again personally at an event where I was speaking at.
One of them even mentioned me in a post she wrote:
So to end off this post, I just want to point out that big companies like Apple and Samsung have their own raving fans as well as haters. What works for you may or may not also work for someone else. We are all different.
