Who are Robert Himler and Amy Sangster? If you believe their version of events, they are two hard-working and highly successful 21 and 22-year old entrepreneurs (respectively) that have escaped the rat race and are driving Lamborghinis in their spare time (and as we’ll see, professionally). They want you to believe that it was their effort and hard-work that got them to the place thy are in now and that anyone can get in the same position they are in. If you really believe them and love being fooled, why not try their newest get-rich-quick-scheme called ‘Far From It’? Far From It is a ‘collaboration’ between Robert and Amy that attempts to teach you how to become rich very quickly by using their mindset. Their successful and world-changing mindset that propelled them into fame and fortune. Get-rich-quick schemes always work, right? RIGHT?
So how did this entire facade begin? How did these two meet and what is in fact, the true story? Their version of events is far from it.
Robert Himler is a proclaimed self-taught web developer. He attended Full Sail University’s 2-year, intensive web development program to develop his skills and possibly, get some certification for doing any serious web development. Funny enough, he and Amy both are ‘disgusted’ by the current education system and recommend that college or university is not for everyone. So why did Robert end up going to a post-secondary institution? He already had a Lamborghini so his education wasn’t what propelled him forward. I speculate that it was for the networking potential that post-secondary institutions offers and to support my thesis, we will see that he co-founded his most popular site with a fellow student. One needs to take a peek at his website to see what projects he worked on prior to attending Full Sail.
His first ‘web business’ (as he calls it) was a website called iCarHomepage. It allowed you to modify the default background image of the Google Search page. What testosterone-exploding teen doesn’t love exotic cars? Of course, Himler then believes Google copied his work when they implemented that feature into their own codebase (I do hope he is joking). Next, he created a website that allows you to judge other people you deem as ‘creepy at the beach’, one that crops a picture to fit into the tight-space of your Facebook profile, another that filters out certain tweets and 2 more small tools. It is important not to diminish his efforts because he did put in the effort to develop these web pages. But, the question still remains, have these pages brought him millions of dollars in ad revenue? Probably not.
His most interesting website is the one he founded with a student while attending Full Sail University. He developed Razzi, a photo-sharing application that he says rivals Flickr. He wants to pay you for driving traffic to his site by uploading your own photos so more or less, the advertisers are paying you. Himler’s hardest job right now is to get you to buy subscriptions to Razzi’s premium service. The question still remains, how did he purchase his Lamborghini before all of this hard work?
Himler first gained some popularity when he posted this video of his mother screaming in his Gallardo. Teenagers started following his channel and when Mr. Himler realized the ad-revenue potential, he created two more channels, one specifically for his car videos. And so it was, that teenagers flooded his channel and gave him his much needed traffic. From then on, Himler purchased and traded some more cars, shot some more videos and flaunted his ‘amazing’ lifestyle to others. Most people will realize that his entire spiel is to get as many gullible and naive young people to believe that they can be in his shoes, by using his mindset. This attitude worsened after he met his partner in crime, Amy Sangster.
Amy Sangster is a so-called FOREX millionaire. She wants you to believe that all of her wealth was acquired by trading foreign currency on the market. If you want to see her in action, watch this video on how to make a ton of money in little time. Amy of course, wants you to believe that anyone can start trading FOREX. You don’t need a lot of capital or knowledge, right? She also conveniently forgets to mention how approximately 90% of investors lose money trading FOREX. But that’s okay because her soon to be founded company InfiniteProsperity will teach you how to be a millionaire and beat the market. Yessss!
Now, after Amy met Robert, they both began appearing in videos with more exotic cars. But their final video (Which you can find on his YouTube channel) is unbelievably disgusting. Amy and Robert are awkwardly standing in their car warehouse, in front of their Lambos of course, telling you about their new book. They look uncomfortable and Amy is reading off of a placard, probably because they realize that what they are doing is wrong but money is more important to them. They are selling their book for $47 (soon to be $55+) that includes access to a forum dedicated to readers of their book. What a great deal. Oh, I forgot to mention their ‘book’ is about 100-pages. Probably written in Word and saved as a PDF. Great, great value.
Hopefully you have a better understanding of who these scam artists are. I’m sure most people would do the same thing in their position. It amazes me that Amy is actually engaging in this behaviour after she admitted in an interview that she wants to change the world and teach young people how to escape the rat race. Good job teaching young people how to be naive and lose money Amy. Keep up the great work!
A scammer is defined as
swindler: a person who swindles you by means of deception or fraud.
Robert Himler is a scammer because he is deceiving people into believing his lifestyle was created through hard work and merit when in fact, he is flat out lying. His father is in fact a successful owner of a used car dealership. He obtained most of his cars through his father and his connections. How can anyone believe a 21 year old could afford so many $50,000+ cars on his own merit. His Razzi website is barely generating enough revenue to pay maintain his Lamborghini.
One should question the validity of these two. How can a couple of 21 year old teenagers, who have barely even gotten through life expect to be taken seriously in regards to giving ‘life lessons’? They do not appreciate those that helped them be where they are and they are lying to people to make more money off their backs. The poor are getting poorer and the fake are getting richer! He also portrays himself as an entrepreneur but what kind of entrepreneur tricks others into giving away $55 for a PDF written in Word?
Robert and Amy respond by insulting everyone and calling them haters! See Part 2 of the story here.
