One of Lal's students, Juliet Hatley, had to argue and reach out to the teaching platform directly in order to recieve a refund. Then she was "immediately removed and blocked" from the class groups and Instagram account @MasterTribe. Others were told they couldn't even receive a refund because they requested it "outside of the 30-day window," which was false.
Since her apology post, other "tribe" members have spoken out in the comments backing up Wannabe Influencer's accusations. Kristi of @travellovefashion said she and other students reached out to Lal many times with suggestions and questions, "only to receive rude defensive messages from Aggie, or be completely ignored." She added: "This was never about your four missing videos, it was about your unprofessional business practice and money grab."
Clare of @laviedeclare was an ex-student as well and concurred that the problems started way before the missing videos. "I found the course very disorganized and with seemingly very little preparation," she wrote, adding that she hopes Lal "receives this as a lesson in business and delivering what you promised your customers."
Shockingly, throughout the backlash, Lal managed to up her follower count by the thousands in just a few minutes, leading many to think she's using the money from the failed course to buy followers.
Others are unfollowing her altogether after feeling betrayed.
Meanwhile, the "master class" is still open for enrollment.
But, a word of advice: Be careful what, or WHO, you spend your hard-earned money on.
