I don't generally
recommend High Yield Investment Programs (HYIP) for several
#1: They are usually pure Ponzi
schemes which only pay out those who know how to play them right.
tend to be very volatile and come and go like the wind. You could
make a spend and then come back the next day to see how much you've
earned, and literally find the program gone.
#3. Many times these
programs are owned by Admins who are dishonest and greedy and don't
give a hoot about their members. Many times they remain anonymous or
use a fake identity.
#4. Most of the time you
don't receive anything of value for your spend, making it a total
waste for you if the program goes offline before you make any money
All that being said,
there are some High Return Passive Income Opportunities which
do provide a lot of value for the money you spend. You just have to
join knowing that you are taking a gamble, like going to a
casino...and there's nothing wrong with that as long as you are
aware of the risks.
I don't generally
Paid to Surf
programs as a reliable source of income because they don't
usually last very long. However, they can be great for
getting traffic to your website. You should consider any money you
make to be a nice bonus. These programs come and go like the wind
just like HYIP's.
NOTE: if you DO
decide to join a Paid to Surf or HYIP program, make sure to only spend what
you can afford to lose, and get your seed money out as soon as
possible. Also, look for those programs which offer a lot of value
and those which have a lot of happy members.
I don't recommend any
program which uses a Straight-line Matrix because they ALWAYS
stall out eventually, leaving the late-comers high and dry.
I don't recommend any
program which uses the Powerline Recruiting System because it
is very deceptive. The Powerline Recruiting System works by sending
email after email to you, after you join as a free member, warning
you to upgrade or else you will lose out on commissions. Once you
take the bait, and you upgrade to a paid member, you will find out
that you didn't really have any commission payments coming to you
I don't generally like
2x2 or 2x3 or any kind of traditional
Cycler because you
usually don't make any money until your matrix is full, meaning that
YOU will have to find all 6 (or whatever) people yourself. WHY? Because nine times
out of 10, your recruits won't do anything. Don't ask me
why...that's just the way it is. And most of the time you will end
up with a stalled cycler. Now, a cycler isn't always bad, as long as
you get something for your initial purchase. But, most of the time
you don't get anything of any real value until you complete a cycle,
which means you've wasted your money.
Here are some of the
programs which I have joined in the past or which I have reviewed,
and which I don't recommend. There are MANY more, and in time I will
list them as well, so make sure you bookmark this website now. In

You may have heard of a company
called Dubli. Every Big-Time Guru is supposedly joining it, and they
are ALL going to become raging MILLIONAIRES within just a few
Here's why I won't be joining
Dubli. Well, for one thing, I can't stand all the Hype! But
seriously, I think it will die out quite quickly because they
business model is not sustainable, and they have no real product at
Additionally, I have done
extensive research on this company, and I can't find anything about
it that appeals to me or that makes me think it will be a long-term
endeavor. In fact, the big wigs in Dubli are already stating that
you MUST JOIN NOW because after a couple of years, it will be too
So, apparently they are admitting
that it will be a FAST CASH GRAB opportunity, which doesn't not
interest me in the least. Not that I don't like fast cash, but since
the majority of large commissions are going to come from recruiting,
how can you continue to bring people into a company where the
writing is on the door that it won't last past a couple of years?
Well, here's a link to a
well-written HONEST review that goes into a lot of detail about
Dubli. If you're even considering joining, you really should read
Honest Dubli Review
MyPCbackup/EZ Money System -
In my research about the actual product, which is
Online PC Storage, I found that MyPCbackup is inferior at best and
terrible by most accounts. In addition, it seems that the people who
were once avid promoters are now finding out that the referral
program isn't all it was touted to be, and they aren't being paid
what they were promised.
Wealth2Xtreme - (NOT
My anti-virus software pops
up every time I go to the website, so that's the main reason I don't
recommend this program. The warning I get states that the site
contains Malware. (Malware, short for malicious software, is
software designed to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive
information, or gain unauthorized access to computer.) Also, I tend
to not be too fond of programs that make promises like this... Turn
a one-time $5 into $20,475.
All Inclusive Ads -
I joined this program because it claims to get you tons of traffic
to your website, all without you having to do a thing but give them
the URL of the website you want to promote. I used this service for
one month and received very little traffic and got NO results. If
you want to read more detail about my experience with AIA, read
Clickbank Pirate / CB Pirate -
I joined this program because I like some of the other sites the
owners have been involved with in the past, but I quickly lost my
interest when I realized the main shortcoming of this program. The
problem here is that you will be building a list for the owners of
this program and not yourself. This is a HUGE "no no" and that's why
I cannot recommend this program. Furthermore, it is IMPOSSIBLE to
get a refund here. I have been trying for over a month to no avail.
TVI Express -
I did not join this program, and here's why...Been There, Done That,
Got the T-Shirt! This program is just a Cycler on Gifting Boards,
making it next to impossible for the average person to ever cycle
out the top. Yes, a few will have success, but most will fail and
the program will bite the dust before too long.
Success University -
(NOT RECOMMENDED) The comp plan is too hard to
understand and you have to balance legs. There is a startup fee of
$150, and the monthly fee is $50. People drop out like flies because
they can never get to the break even point.
(NOT RECOMMENDED) Too much hype, not enough meat!
The products are not at all impressive to me, and you will not get
enough spillover to pay your monthly fees.
UPDATE: the URL (stealthmoneymaker.com) now
leads to a program called Process at Home, run by a woman who calls
herself Angel Stevens. I have done some research on this program,
and I DO NOT recommend you join it.
owned by a guy who calls himself Alan Humphreys, for now anyway.
Another program called Income4Beginners was owned by a guy who
called himself Jon Davies. Income4Beginners suddenly went offline
with no warning or message from Jon Davies, and all sites started
pointing to StealthMoneyMaker. Alan Humphreys denies knowing
anything about Income4Beginners, but he's not telling the truth. The
two programs are almost identical, right down to the Terms of
Service. Alan and Jon are most likely one and the same person, and
that person is less than honest at the very least.
LawnChair Millionaire -
The only people making
money here are those who can recruit tons of new members. However,
according to the website you can make $2,750 per WEEK doing almost
nothing at all. This is total bull.
- (NOT RECOMMENDED)
Sister to LawnChair
Millionaire. Same BULL, New Program. I'm sure there will be new one
next year! Again, the ONLY people making money here are the BIG
promoters at the top. You can bet they got in line way before us
peons ever heard of it. The MATH is Impossible on this, and it's
just deceitful to make people think they will make any money by
simply "getting in line." Not Going to Happen.

What's wrong with
Gifting Programs? Well, for starters, they are illegal. Of course,
the owners and promoters will try to tell you that they are legal,
because there's no law against giving away money. That's true. It is
legal to give a cash gift to someone. Duh, we all know that.
However, the IRS definition of Giving a Gift is intended for giving
a gift to family members, friends, or even a charity, with NO
expectation of EVER receiving anything in return. It is surely not
meant for Organized Cash Gifting, where people are giving a monetary
gift with the SOLE expectation of receiving it back ten fold! Heck,
that's not even true gifting at all! Another thing I don't like
about Gifting is that you do not receive anything of value for your
money. Therefore, if you never make your "gift" back (what an
oxymoron), which you most likely won't, then you just wasted your
money. Unfortunately, many are using Gifting as a way to avoid
paying taxes on income, and this is going to cause the government to
intercede at some point and shut many of these programs down.
Canadian Diamond Traders (NOT
This program/opportunity was a huge
disappointment. For starters, my sponsor was off onto another
program within a week of my joining! After I found out this little
piece of info, he informed me of all of the things he didn't like
about CDT. Ok, I know...that's not the fault of the company. Well,
maybe not, but I soon found lots of things not to like about it.
Most importantly, the Comp Plan is the same as lots of the Gifting
Programs out on the net. Basically, it's a Board that splits every
time the bottom level fills up. Therefore, chances are that you will
join, and soon after your sponsor will be onto another board,
leaving you behind! As experienced as I was when I joined this
program, I didn't see it coming, and nobody told me it would be
coming. Not only that, but I brought in a few people BEFORE I really
understood how it worked. NONE of those people have cycled, or even
moved up the board for that matter, and it's been two years now!
Don't join this program unless you want to recruit 32 people all by
The reason I can't
recommend this program is because of the Marketing System they use
to recruit people. It's called the Powerline System, and it is VERY
deceiving to say the least. Actually, I can't recommend any program
that uses the Powerline Recruiting System and I refuse to promote
any program which uses it. For more on how I feel, you can read this
