He's back!!!Now scammer Mike Cioppa is known as Michael Cardinelli.

Cioppa is seen in the photo on MichaelCardinelli.com with his head turned sideways my guess is to deceive??? In any event you best beware.

He is at it again.I wonder why local authorities have not thrown this guy back in jail for fraud???


December 2013

After he failed with imguerrilas.com and left a string of dissatisfied clients Mike Cioppa is now trying to make a comeback with:




He has also changed his email address from mike@localbusinessmarketingexpert.com to magicmikemarketing@gmail.com - this is probably for the purposes of PayPal since they closed his previous account.


These scams are ongoing and everlasting so to speak ... http://www.warriorforum.com/internet-marketing-product-reviews-ratings/847900-magic-mike-im-guerillas-elite-continuation-2.html#post8632429

I found him using the handle botmanvideos on you tube.This guy is a pathetic loser!

Based on the videos his life is in the crapper and he expects other people to pay him so he can lend advice.

WTF...Get real man.

Newburgh, New York, United States #637095

Search Youtube for Jamie Rinkelsen & MikeBrandino (one word). He also operates under those alias for his latest scams.


He is an ex-convict - not a doctor


I was ripped off as well by Mike in the amount of $147...please keep me in the loop or if I can be of any assistance in regards to bringing Mike to Justice: andy "at" AndyG.com


Just curious if anything was ever done to this person, he also went under the name Mike Brandino and scammed me in a different way.I did some work for one of his businesses but I did not get paid.

Similar to the reports about Mike Cioppa he did not return any emails or phone calls after a period of time, basically once payment was due to me. If you look at whois information for resultsfirstonlinemarketing.com you will see the name Michael Brandino at 22 Keeler Dr. in Albany, NY.

Whois information for localbusinessmarketingexpert.com shows Michael Cioppa at the same address.He owes me at least $500.00, if there is anything that can be done to locate and prosecute this individual I will be happy to assist.


Mike stole $147 from me as well in a similar fashion to what has already been cited here. Hope the word gets out about this fake.


He conned us for $147.00 too.He was promising us a display at a local workshop, and we were going to be the only awards company presented.

Then the event was cancelled due to "health" concerns. I sent a certified letter which was returned and not picked-up. I have e-mailed him with no reply.

It seems as if he is thief and a liar.

I wonder how many others have trusted him?


Same experience as the others. I filed a complaint with NY AG office and they cannot find him. Case dropped.


We have a cancelled check for 147.00 dated 3/6/09 from this ***-artist for a conference that never existed.

I can't figure out why he is not behind bars. I will participate in any ivestigation that would put this guy in jail.
