Earning Money Easy Way

  1. Oct 25, 2005 #1
    I am a student majoring in computer science in 2nd year..i have heard about this few days ago and i want to hear your sincere advices upon this .

    This Company claims that the individual joining it will receive a certain amount
    of money for prompting others .
    It has a got exactly the same the structure as that of a balanced binary tree.
    For joining it,there is a enterance fee of about 160$ and for every fixed number of individuals joining under you ,you will get a fixed amount of money
    from the company.

    There are many other policies of this company and it is not possible to describe all policies so I want a sincere advice from all of u whether I should
    trust such companies.

    There are legitimate multi-level marketing companies out there (Amway, Avon, Pre-Paid Legal) in which you receive a certain percentage of the revenue brought in by independent salespeople that you recruit into the company, along with a percentage of the revenue you bring in yourself. However, when you receive money simply for recruiting new salespeople, that is a pyramid scheme and is illegal. If the FTC learns of this company's practice, it will get shut down.

    You can, of course, make money in a pyramid scheme; if you're good at it, you can make quite a bit of money, so you aren't necessarily going to get ripped off. It's still illegal, though. Does this company even sell any kind of product or service?
