Yesterday, as part of a series of blog articles on the Faster EFT safety concerns cropping up lately, EFT creator Gary Craig wrote a letter to the Faster EFT community. He starts by saying that it is a courtesy letter to address rumors and to once again ask Robert Smith, creator of Faster EFT, to change the name of the system called Faster EFT.
Gary Craig openly spoke of the rumor that Robert Smith was trained in EFT. The total extent of the relationship that Gary has with Robert Smith is about 32 minutes, once during a break in a public demonstration of EFT which Robert attended and 30 minutes last year in a phone conversation. Gary said that in the call with Robert Smith he asked him to eliminate the EFT logo, Gary’s image, and other misleading material from the Faster EFT group that Robert Smith runs on Facebook. Robert said he would but in fact did not until yesterday when the letter was published on the Kottle Code website.
Another interesting fact is that Gary had read somewhere that Robert Smith was charging $1200 a session. During the 30 minute phone call Gary asked Robert Smith why he charged so much. Robert Smith said it was to dissuade people from actually contacting him for sessions. In the Faster EFT Facebook group Robert Smith wrote about the conversation as if it had been a pleasant conversation between old friends. Gary Craig said that nothing could have been further from the truth.
The bulk of the letter was Gary’s clear message that 1. Faster EFT is neither faster nor is it EFT 2. Robert Smith has used the popular three letter acronym for solely to market the Faster brand and himself and 3. The branding of Faster EFT is not an ethical marketing practice that should end. “The only evidence I can find that FasterEFT is faster than EFT is that Robert says so. That’s it, “ says Gary Craig. He goes on to add, “EFT has not been enhanced by FasterEFT (whatever it stands for) but, instead, has been distorted, polluted and belittled. My apologies if these words seem too strong but the truth is the truth and I do readers a disservice by sugar coating it.”
There’s also an open invitation to contact Gary, “I would like to hear from anyone in the FasterEFT community who can tell me why this use of the EFT brand is ethically justifiable. Please tell me how it is anything other than a means to gain credibility by exploiting a brand you didn’t create. You may contact me here.” You can locate Gary Craig’s contact information by visiting his Optimal EFT site.
