What does Aiza advertise?
More recently, the Web admired how Isa teaches subscribers to sell clothes from Aliexpress so that the buyer does not guess where the product is from and pays many times more. “I need to send the goods to the client without receipts so that he does not understand that the goods are from Aliexpress and do not see the purchase price,” Aiza explained ingenuously on her page.
Isa has already deleted this post. Doing so was probably advised by her business coach Ivan Marchenko. This information is from his miracle course, which he and the blogger are trying to sell.
How Aiza got interested in dropshipping
Throughout January, Aiza admires her new acquaintance Vanya and advertises his courses teaching how to earn hundreds of thousands of rubles every month by reselling cheap goods from Chinese sites in the United States at exorbitant prices.
— I decided to make an online store for the American market. Why? I will explain! Isa says. — Because I’m interested in earning without investments and in foreign currency, I also don’t want to hire a staff, I don’t want to do a bunch of things. In fact, everything is very simple. The main thing is to know the scheme! Vanya supervises me. For five years he has been selling goods online to different countries of the world, the annual turnover is more than 400 thousand dollars, he lives abroad. This is what everyone dreams of, including me!
Right now, the blogger invites everyone to a free workshop with Vanya.

The Life correspondent registered for the course and got into a special channel for students, who already had three thousand people. Aiza and Vanya promise them that anyone, even a beginner with zero knowledge of English and no website design skills, can become a successful businessman. What they teach is called dropshipping. This is a business scheme based on mediation between the buyer and the supplier. According to Aiza, her enterprising friend figured out how easy it is to get promoted on the global Aliexpress platform. You only need to take a few steps.
The Telegram channel is already in full swing discussing the course that has just begun. Not a single negative review, all positive:
– I am delighted! Yesterday I bought a laptop on credit. And I thought: maybe in vain? But now I am sure that I am where I need to be! – writes a certain Zarina Ibragimova. Life found her on social networks.
In reality, the girl who left a positive review is called Gulnara Nugmanova. Three years ago, she promoted easy money on social media for “tiered” travel companies Ibuumerang and Incruises. The Central Bank of the Russian Federation branded both of them with pyramid schemes and included them in the List of companies with identified signs of illegal activity in the financial market.
Course webinars can be viewed on a special landing page, either live or recorded for the next 24 hours. Again, there are no negative comments anywhere. Perhaps the whole secret is that negative reviews are deleted with lightning speed. So, Life found a link to an old broadcast on Aiza’s page on Instagram *, where he and Vanya answer uncomfortable questions. It seems that the blogger simply forgot to remove this link, because there is a lot of criticism.
“People, like small children, believe the information gypsies!” No need, read about Ivan on the Internet! Well, in our world there are some gullible ones, — subscribers write.
– Aiza, tell me, will the free course explain how to open an account? And the details of where the money from sales will be credited? Of course not. You will give the minimum information, and then Vanya will advertise a paid course with a huge discount. You’ve gone downhill. Although she said in an interview that the courses are a scam, one of them is angry.
However, Aiza and Vanya especially do not hide their true interest. The nuances of how to choose the right providers, how to connect to an international payment system, how to withdraw money from it, will be explained only in a paid course. How much does it cost?
— Options for participation in the course with a 35% discount: “reserved seat” tariff – 6,305 rubles, “coupe” – 12,285 rubles, VIP – 19,175 rubles, “turnkey” – 64,350 rubles. Along with the training, you will receive bonuses: a trial period of an online store, you won’t pay $29 for a website, discounts on services for work from our partners (saving up to 30,000 rubles), Ivan Marchenko once indicated the prices on his blog.
Life got the impression that Ivan could not sell his miracle courses on his own. Not enough coverage. For example, in a banned social network with pictures, he has only 6150 subscribers. Perhaps that is why he takes well-known bloggers as partners for promotion. Before Aiza, he collaborated with Yana Leventseva, the “ambassador of a beautiful life.” She also advertised his courses on creating an online store.
Why is Ivan Marchenko famous?
“Vanya” is 31-year-old Ivan Marchenko, originally from Sterlitamak. He is the son of a former official from the regional administration. Ivan seems to live according to the testament of the American rapper 50 Cent: “Get rich or die.” If compared with a literary character, then this is undoubtedly Ostap Bender, who knew “four hundred ways to fairly honestly take money from the population.”
At the end of 2013, Ivan Marchenko bought the cheapest train ticket from Sterlitamak to Moscow in order to study in the capital for a two-month Business Youth coaching.
In the summer of 2014, he moved to St. Petersburg, where he met a local resident Kirill Monakhov. This person was recently included in the register of disqualified persons. According to the materials of the arbitration court, one of his companies – “Start” – was suspected of participating in schemes for the return of VAT from the budget. Her debts exceeded 1.2 billion rubles.
Marchenko and Monakhov founded the now-closed adventure tourism company Action Way. Through it, they organized parachute jumps, standing on nails, riding a flyboard, paragliding, and also collected money on a personal account for a “marathon in memory of the participants in the blockade of Leningrad.” The company’s now closed website did not have the attributes of a legitimate business, the payment was accepted by transfer to the card. There are laudatory reviews on the Web for Action Way. Life had doubts about their honesty: they were left within one week, moreover, either hastily created profiles with no activity, or Marchenko’s acquaintances, with whom he has a long-standing friendship on social networks and common selfies.
In 2015, Ivan Marchenko promoted the ready-made business Wax Pens. This is such a wheelbarrow with heated containers for multi-colored wax. It can be brought, for example, to a children’s birthday for the entertainment of the little ones. In fact, this is an attraction where you can create a 3D model of your own hand. Marchenko advertised and sold such cars to everyone. Currently, there is no information about this enterprise – it seems to have stalled.
The next stage in Marchenko’s career is a move to Moscow to the “House of Alligators”, created by a little-known entrepreneur Osep Ambartsumov. In fact, we are talking about a hostel where beginner businessmen live and study together.
— Live surrounded by successful entrepreneurs! 67% of them earned over 500 thousand rubles! – so it is written on the site “alligators”.
Interestingly, the main “alligator” Osep Ambartsumov once turned to a specialized agency for collecting debts.

After training as an “alligator,” Marchenko went on what he called a world tour. His Instagram account really gives the impression that he is constantly traveling. But, if you look closely, Marchenko publishes posts from exotic countries with long breaks, sometimes he does not show Internet activity for up to a year.
– I’ll write here what I’m doing now, at the same time I’ll put everything on the shelves in my head, and you will see how we earn money while traveling. Let’s go: I shoot and sell videos to poker rooms, I make commercials for hotels, I cooperate with a travel company, – Marchenko explained the source of his income.
Around 2018, Ivan Marchenko allegedly figured out how to make money with dropshipping. The first enthusiastic responses to his course began to appear a year later. Life studied his students.
One of them, a certain Ivan Stepanov, introduced himself as a Petersburger working at a factory. In fact, he is from Sterlitamak, that is, Marchenko’s countryman. Ivan Stepanov is not the first to advertise dubious schemes. About six years ago, he promoted another business guru.
The course of Ivan Marchenko was praised by a certain Anna. As Life found out, she is Ukrainian, having dozens of pages on social networks – and all under different names. She also worked as a model.
By the way, Ivan Marchenko has detractors. They tried to find his “super-successful” stores, but they never did.
– Interestingly, Ivan refuses to ask for the address of at least one successful online store, citing the fact that he is afraid of competition. He also refuses to name even one product that they allegedly sell successfully … At the same time, he is not afraid to grow competitors for himself through online training. Who would believe that he wants to train his next partner? — wrote in 2021 Dill Alev, editor of the specialized site Partnerkin.com.
Judging by the databases, Ivan Marchenko does not own expensive cars or real estate. He is still registered in Khrushchev in Sterlitamak.
A couple of years ago, Ivan was looking for a manager for an online school. The job was posted on Headhunter. Applicants were offered a salary of 20-25 thousand rubles a month. Sparsely for a business guru making money out of thin air.
