ALERT! South Carolina Man Links to $100M+ in Alleged Scams


Stealth Media, which is owned and operated by John Monarch along with his partner Shaun Groomes, solicits affiliate marketers to promote free trials like HNB for a “bounty.”    The bounty is often referred to as the CPA, or cost per acquisition.

For example, Stealth Media offered affiliates $39 for every initial credit card acquired from a consumer for Advanced Pure Garcinia and $36 for an additional negative option enrollment in the Advanced Pure Cleanse program.

Stealth Media Facebook Page. John Monarch is the owner and Stealth Media appears to have been shut down and/or is no longer operating.

Many of the free trials above make claims that consumers will “burn more fat” or “prevent fat storage.”  Are these claims false and purposely made to deceive consumers into enrolling in an autobill program, or are these legitimate weight loss programs?

Vee Daniel of the BBB confirmed that FTC Investigator Cynthia Lebowitz interviewed Monarch along with several of his employees and has requested information on a number of these free trial programs that many consumers claim are scams.    Ms. Daniel noted that Monarch was not forthcoming about the ownership structure of many these companies, including Monarch’s own free trial Getting Sleepy.

Hope they lock them up and throw away the keys!

Hope he goes to jail and I hope they take everything he has and gives the people back their money plus some. Hope he is left with nothing and owes for a long time. I can't stand a lier and a thief. If you want something work for it honesty. Piece of trash.

Scott Vallentine

He doesn't look smart enough to have pulled this off.

These people suck. I did this free trial once and read the fine print you have 14 days to cancel however you don’t receive your product for like 20 days so it’s tough to cancel when you don’t even have it to test it and that’s how they start charging your credit card. POS should go to prison.

Mark Gibson

If he was that smart he burried enough to not have to worry about money whenever he gets out of jail then again he might not get out to spend it.

A Scam is only a Scam if you fall for it.

It has come to the attention of the USA Herald that a number of people that have commented on this string and other publishers that have written articles about John Monarch/Direct Outbound Services/Shipchain have received threats of lawsuits if they don't remain silent. We're collecting a list of these folks. If you are threatened by John Monarch or anyone else over exercising free speach, i.e. Shaunice Griffin recently commented about her experience at DOS and that she quite because she "felt like it was a scam," please contact us here:
