Sales Mango – Testimonials For Themselves! Wow!!

And self given awards!!

This is an update of the earlier post – someone has had the good sense? to remove the little seals representing the awards they lied about winning from the bottom of the pages on the Sales Mango website. The domain was registered to John Raygoza’s mother; so who runs it – Raygoza and his thug partners, Ted Molina and David Sipes?

The seals are still displayed on the “Customers” page. But, without them the only things on that page would be the quotes from the scammers themselves – praising themselves and their company. Reminds me of “If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge ….” LOL

For those who know John Raygoza, Ted Molina, David Sipes and the scams perpetrated by them through web businesses like Push Traffic, JumpLaunch, SuccessRate and IncFortune (to name but a few) the sales or home page of Sales Mango will elicit gales of laughter! (maybe make them fall off their chairs laughing??)

The target at Sales Mango is small business. I’ll give you the link in a moment, but first want to point out a couple of things to look for:

Click on the “Customer” tab and you’ll see glowing testimonials and recommendations (red highlight is mine):

SalesMango is easy, secure, robust, and my staff LOVES it!

I needed a CRM that was easy to use. Where anyone from a salesperson to a top-level manager can you, without having to hire someone to fly out to our office to teach us how to use the software. SalesMango is easy, secure, robust, and my staff LOVES it!

David Sipes, CEO, – web hosting company owned by Sipes’ partner, John Raygoza (no longer online)

It was built with ease in mind!

My sales people love SalesMango. It was built with ease in mind! Plus the reporting is great for my management team!

Ted Molina, VP of Marketing SuccessRate – a consulting company owned by Ted’s brother John Raygoza (no longer online)

This is well designed and well built …

The greatest Sales CRM ever invtented!

Joel Merchant, – Operations Manager of company owned by John Raygoza (no longer online)

Dear Reader, are you still in your chair? 🙂 The testimonials are from none other than David Sipes, Ted Molina and Joel Merchant – all associates and/or partners in not only Raygoza’s scams, but Sales Mango’s ownership. Same stuff repeated on “learn more” page.

Now to the “Awards” (still claimed beside those wonderful words of praise above) …. I decided to look up the award winners – guess these little “seals” must be for decoration or something.
Claimed Awards
At the CRM Excellence awards site – no Sales Mango mention, no award

At CODiE 2009 site – no mention of Sales Mango at all – no award

Gold Proactive Protection Award site – “Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009’s proactive protection wins gold award …” guess they’re just saying they use award-winning Kaspersky?  Sales Mangono award

Business Software Satisfaction Awards 2009 site – again no mention – no award for Sales Mango

2009 CRM Market Leader – and again no mention of Sales Mango or its principles – again no award

I assumed the award claims were the usual Raygoza fraudulent claims, and in this case my assumptions proved valid – their claims didn’t.

The other little seals on the page are guarantees – is it possible they’re as legitimate, and mean as much, as the award ones?

    Just took a look at SalesMango site. Its construction is strikingly similar to the ignominious, disused and mis-used Pushtraffic site.
    I clicked on “help center” tab and got a technical problem. It is obviously not set up properly. Typical.
    Reminds me of that defunct Pushtraffic support ticket system, where I left 2 critical questions never to be answered. More defunct customer service from a professionally defunct Customer Service Manager.

    A reader actually emailed the sites who supposedly gave these awards to Sales Mango.

    The responses? “Never heard of Sales Mango” and “thanks for bringing it to our attention”.

    Gosh, who’d a thunk it, eh? LOL These guys are total idiots if they think no one’s checking on their foolishness.

    Hard to believe they would build a site so easily proven to be total garbage, and expect the online community to swallow the swill.

These crazy bastards are over the top, they are one retarded bunch of idiots! One thing is for sure, it is beyond belief that these guys are still trying to do business using their actual names. Do they not realize that their names are plastered all over a lawsuit. Is this site (salesmango) just a decoy for some other scam…because I can’t believe, even these idiots, would but their names in the forefront like that when they are in the middle of being sued. Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    Not yet, but that would likely at least get their memberships, if they even have memberships, pulled. I hate wasting more time on these losers, but will consider the suggestion.

    Nice writeup. Have you tried contacting the actual sites that Raygoza claims gave his company an award? I’m sure they wouldn’t be happy to see how he is tarnishing their name brand.

    Isn’t there somewhere we can report these types of phoney testimonials? I thought the Federal Trade Commission upgraded its regulations in 2009.
