Sam Shiah: The Puppet Master of WSMM — Come Get Me

As I'm sure everyone here on WSO knows, Sam Shiah from Wall Street Mastermind has been able to delete TWO trending threads on WSO talking about how his program is not worth the $6800 he solicits.As other forums have posted, this sneaky censorship is a disgrace to everyone on WSO. He continues to pay off and destroy any people that go against his scheme.For the purpose of upholding the genuine community on this website and to defame the Puppet Master of Nontargets himself, please shoot this thread up to trending yet again.ALSO, for the hell of it, comment ANY experiences you've had with WSMM so newcomers are aware of the perilous path they may face if they sign up for his $6800 workshop that you can learn for free on YouTube

Thanks Sammy! Appreciate the automated response.

I think you would get more clout on here if you talked more about your lucites from GI Partners or Morgan Stanley.

We all would really change our minds if you flexed on us prospects with your shiny credentials bud

It's truly a crime this guy is able to delete these threads.

If you look at the old one, he was able to manipulate the OP to edit his post from saying Sam is a disgrace to "WSMM is actually worth it, I only said bad things because I was angry before"

Meanwhile, he keeps shoving ads down your throat on YouTube and canceling any sites that oppose his shop. Truly unethical and goes to show how weak his brand is if he finds it necessary to be so proactive online

uh oh Sammy isn't gonna like this. He definitely has some sort of alert that goes out when there's a post about WSMM on this site. Also waiting for his 6 paragraph essay from various burner accounts on how the program helped them go from North Dakota CC to GS TMT due to the 90% placement rate and unique industry knowledge/network.

Sam if you're reading this, why do you not change? If you get so much shit for your program, why don't you address these grievances head on instead of being so defensive? You're shooting yourself in the foot here. Do an AMA and explain why your program is worth as much as it is and sincerely apologize for your aggressive sales tactics. People will respect you more for it, and drama like this (though I enjoy it) wouldn't happen.

Investment Analyst at HF said it best on this thread:

A hallmark of every successful company is extreme willingness to listen to the customer and incorporate their feedback. I don't understand why you're being so combative, especially when your own customers have taken the time to express their honest thoughts. Not a good look. I genuinely hope you can take some of this feedback and use it to reform your business practices.

Lol so you guys know, he changed the comment to make it less obvious it's him.

Btw Sam, yeah some people are memeing, but if this many people are giving poor reviews about your service (including people in industry) then surely something must be wrong.

Him doing this is only adding fuel to the fire. Agree with what was said above.If he just directly responded to these posts it would gain him more respect and less of an uproar. Only making matters worse, he's too arrogant and thinks he has enough clout to manipulate the entire platform without response

No guys you've got it all wrong. It is I, a student of Sam Shiah that is currently a student in University (*gulp*). I can honestly say firsthand that Sam's program completely changed my life. It is the only reason I got two interviews with 10 man shops in Oklahoma despite having severe disadvantages like having only a 3.6 GPA and being at a flagship state school with tens of thousands of alumni in all corners. Without his program I would've never been able to flawlessly answer the hard questions like "Why IB?" and "How does a $10 increase in dep flow through the statements?"

I haven't gotten any offers yet but I can 100% attest it's because of my own shortcomings. Levering up 10x via credit card to pay for his program was nothing short of the best decision I made in college. Btw can anyone Venmo me so I can buy food?

I wrote in another thread how Sam wasn't technically scamming kids because they're old enough to make their own decisions. But looking back at some comments he made about taking out a "small" loan for 3-5% interest for his course just because some do that for college has to be the most laughable comparison ever. Yea this dude is totally a scammer. Shame he had a good career going for him and decided to take the wrong "entrepreneurial" path.

Do I drop a couple of hundo on a bottoms-up course to learn the fundamentals of accounting/valuation and how they're applied in the industry so that I can be more confident and elaborate in the interviews?

Or do I drop Effin $7K on a cookie-cutter LinkedIn utilization coaching class
