FutureNet/FutureAdPro - SCAM



https://www.facebook.com/futurenetponzi/

FutureNet is the latest in a long line of unique programmes that's different from everybody else. Aren't they all? 






So what is Future Net? I'll let them explain:

'Our Vision:

We create the first social network platform, which has innovative tools for communicating and our own products to help people around the world realize their full potential on the internet.

Our mission:

We are the most innovative social networking platform that connects and inspires people around the world to pursue their potential on the internet, providing them with constantly new products and solutions.'


Are you any the wiser? Nope, me neither.

The Company was started in Summer 2012, but wasn't launched until 2014.

The FutureNet Office is based here*:

UL. ULANSKA 5 52-213 WROCLAW POLAND.





Looks like a real office doesn't it?
Unfortunately, it isn't. It's a house, in a quiet residential street, dressed up to look like a real office:




  And what have we got here? Looks like this isn't the first PONZI registered here:


'One-Line Online -GreenLine' was started in 2013 - now closed. And who used to run it? A gentleman called Stephan Morgenstern.



So TWO PONZIS have been run out of the SAME house! Don't you just LOVE Google Street view? I really love the 'real' staff photos, great touch. And a real (fake) office as well! Note the cosy Office fireplace, very cool. And the 'no expense spared' desks. I especially love all the files on the back wall. Nothing says, 'this is a real business' more than shelves full of files.



And this is their OTHER registered address:

(*office has been relocated October 2017)

Trust Company Complex, Ajeltake road, Majuro, Marshall Islands.

Which is nothing more than a Tax avoidance/Authority avoidance address shared with many other companies:

'The registered address of the Corporation in the Republic of the Marshall Islands is Trust Company Complex, Ajeltake Road, Ajeltake Island, P.O. Box 1405, Majuro, Marshall Islands MH96960. The name of the Corporation’s registered agent at such address is The Trust Company of the Marshall Islands, Inc. The Board of Directors of the Corporation (the “Board of Directors”) may establish branches, offices or agencies in any place in the world and may appoint legal representatives anywhere in the world.'


So who runs this Ponzi:

Stephan Morgenstern!



Stephan Morgenstern, the Founder and CEO:

'Stephan is 52 years old. He is German but he has been living in Poland for 2,5 years.

And, last but not least -

Marcelina Jachyra, the Management Team Assistant.



There's no information on her other than on her Facebook page.


                                               ***************************

So what IS FutureNet? This research comes from an Official Video. It takes ELEVEN minutes before they even mention 'products'. And what takes up the first ELEVEN minutes? What to do when you join!

First of all, you have to do a task.
Your first task is..to find somebody else who wants to join!




'Your first task is to focus in 90% on building the distribution system and in 10% on forming a network of customers.'
And the next task?


'Your task for the next three months will be to continue sponsoring new distribution partner, in addition, you need to help your first partner sponsor his one new partner as well. Just show him the video and he will learn everything you have learnt.'

And what have you learnt? To SPONSOR! But you must start TODAY!

Fast forward three months and FutureNet are now assuming that you've sponsored THREE people. So what's your task now? You'll never guess?




'Your task for the next three months will be to sponsor another personal partner and provide assistance to your three current partners so that each of them could sponsor a new partner as well'.

Getting a bit repetitive isn't it? Maybe the next task will be easier?
Fast forward NINE months:


FutureNet are now assuming you've been working REALLY hard and managed to get SEVEN partners.

'Therefore, you have a team of seven distribution partners after nine months.
And what will happen in the next three months? Nothing new: you just keep sponsoring one new partner and help your current partners do the same.'

That sounds SO simple doesn't it! So what training do you need to help all your partners?

You'll never guess. You have to tell them - TO RECRUIT more people. And THOSE people recruit MORE people...who recruit MORE people!

AND, if you keep doing this amazing business strategy you'll become 'a very profitable business person'. Eat your heart out Mark Zuckerberg!

Fast forward FOUR years! You've followed the amazing FutureNet business strategy
and guess what? You've only managed to get an astonishing 65,535 partners!


Astonishing success rate isn't it - except...they spent six whole minutes on their Official Video explaining all of the above and then spent the next minute saying it's only THEORETICALLY possible! 

Darn it - I thought I could retire on FutureNet earnings! I'm gutted!



'So why won't all this work? Well, for a start. We are PEOPLE. And secondly, these figures are based on people who ACTUALLY join.



And thirdly? Well, some people will actually LEAVE...BUT, lots of people WILL stay! AND bring in others! They'll network, and make LOADS of money. HOW? '





I'll let them explain again:



'What exactly do the Networkers, who actually earn high Income, have to do? The answer is simple: 

They understand the principle behind network marketing idea and focus, without exception, on the power of duplication.' 



The power of duplication? Yup. To be successful with FutureNet, you have to get up twenty minutes earlier, EVERY DAY FOR ONE HUNDRED DAYS and watch their video!

THEN, you'll be COMPLETELY BRAINWASHED into believing this complete load of hogswash!






'Here is your first task: from now on watch this video EVERY DAY IN THE MORNING,

From Monday to Sunday, From Monday to Sunday, From Monday to Sunday, for the next 100 days.'


The video then goes on to say that you must also watch a webinar EVERY DAY. You can choose to watch it in the morning, afternoon or evening. And then you're tasked with getting just one of your partners to do the same!

So what on earth do FUTURENET actually DO? Finally, after listening to 11 minutes of repetitive nonsense, we get the answer:






'How does it work? In a very simple way:

Basically FutureNet offers fantastic products including our multimedia, the FutureNet Steering System, the Future-CLOUD, the Future BLOG system, our Future-Video emails and many many more'
So, to re-cap. You spend as much time as possible recruiting as many people as possible
who will also recruit as many people as possible who will also recruit...as many people as possible.
So once you have all these people, what do they spend their money on? 

All these amazing 'products'.

1/ FutureNet Multi Media.
Every time you log in, depending on how much you give them - you get FREE money.
FutureNet are the ONLY company to do this! FACEBOOK don't do this because they keep all the money for themselves - while FUTURENET give it all away and STILL make tons of money! 


2/ Future Cloud.

No info on this yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar these clouds aren't the white fluffy variety!

3/ FutureBlog system.

Let me guess? You have to WRITE blogs to earn a few cents? You could write reams and reams on how to RECRUIT future suckers couldn't you? FutureNet give you LOADS of tips! Is there a prize for the best one? Maybe a book deal? A film...free money???

4/Future Video Emails.

Well that one's easy. Make videos saying how AMAZING FutureNet is! 



So do you join FutureNet for all of this? Of course not!

What you REALLY join for is the lovely REFERRAL COMMISSION!

And boy, do FutureNet have a massive COMMISSION Structure!


(Apologies to 'Behind MLM' for borrowing their excellent FutureNet Referral Commission list, but if I have to listen to any more FutureNet videos, I'll probably throw myself off the nearest building.)
http://behindmlm.com/mlm-reviews/futurenet-review-1685-six-tier-matrix-cycler/

Unilevel Commissions

Residual commissions in FutureNet are paid out using a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate places directly under them (level 1):

If any of these level 1 affiliates go on to recruit new affiliates of their own, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.

FutureNet pay out commissions starting at level 6, subject to the following affiliate recruitment criteria:
recruit 6 affiliates – 2% on level 6
recruit 7 affiliates – 2% on level 6 and 3% on level 7
recruit 8 affiliates – 2% on level 6, 3% on level 7 and 4% on level 8
recruit 9 affiliates – 2% on level 6, 3% on level 7, 4% on level 8 and 5% on level 9
recruit 10 affiliates – 2% on level 6, 3% on level 7, 4% on level 8, 5% on level 9 and 6% on level 10


Matrix Commissions
Matrix commissions in FutureNet use a 3×5 matrix compensation structure.
A 3×5 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a 3×5 matrix, with three positions directly under them (level 1).

Commissions are paid out as a percentage of the fees paid by affiliates purchasing positions in the matrix:
levels 1 and 2 – 5%
levels 3 and 4 – 10%
level 5 – 15%
There are five matrices a FutureNet affiliate can purchase positions in:
Tier 1 – $10
Tier 2 – $25
Tier 3 – $50
Tier 4 – $100
Tier 5 – $500
Tier 6 – $1000

Additional matrix positions are granted based on the commission payouts on levels three to five of a matrix.

Once an affiliate has generated the required amount to purchase a new position on any of these levels, they are awarded a new matrix position at that particular level.

Eg. Once $100 has been generated between levels 3 to 5 of a Tier 4 matrix, they receive a position in a new Tier 4 matrix.

After this initial position has been created that all subsequent matrix commissions on levels 3 to 5 are paid to the affiliate as a commission.
Matching Bonus

A FutureNet affiliate can earn a matching bonus on matrix earnings of their personally recruited affiliates.

The Matching Bonus is paid out as a percentage of these earnings, with how much of a percentage paid out determined by a FutureNet affiliate’s personal recruiting efforts:
recruit 1 affiliate – 20%
recruit 3 affiliates – 40%
recruit 5 affiliates – 60%
recruit 6 affiliates – 80%
recruit 8 affiliates – 100%


And...

Help just 10 People Get to 50 Ad Packs and You Earn $1200 per month - $14,400 per year
Help just 10 People Get to 100 Ad Packs and You Earn $2400 per month - $28,800 per year
Help just 10 People Get to 200 Ad Packs and You Earn $4800 per month - $57,600 per year

==================================================

Lets take this to the next level....
Help just 20 People Get to 50 Ad Packs and You Earn $2400 per month - $28,800 per year
Help just 20 People Get to 100 Ad Packs and You Earn $4800 per month - $57,600 per year
Help just 20 People Get to 200 Ad Packs and You Earn $9600 per month - $115,200 per year
===================================================
Don't forget the calculation above is worked on just being paid Commissions on your 1st Level Only at 8%....
If the people that you recruit get to work you will be paid 4% on your 2nd Level....so you can Add another 50% uplift to those commissions above
===================================================

Also we haven't taken into consideration above the Revenue you will be earning from your own Personally Purchased Ad Packs and also we are not taking in consideration all the bonuses you will be earning from the Matrix when that starts to grow....‪‎FutureNet‬ is a GOLDMINE !!!!!

No! It's a PONZI!
************************
In conclusion:
FutureNet is 100% Ponzi- Scam. 
It's focus is on Recruitment and it's vast array of Commissions and Bonuses. It promises that same old tired, formula of a $10 profit on your $50 AdPack which means a LOSS on every pack it sells. And it's premises are just a house - dressed up to look real!

17th January 2017
COINS! The last way to squeeze out every last cent from long suffering affiliates. As long as you don't plan on using them for anything other than monopoly, they'll be at least partially useful.

Question:
Why don't FutureNet accept Visa and Mastercard?
Answer:
So your money can't be refunded via Chargeback!




17th July 2017

FutureNet are now boasting they have one and half MILLION members! WOW!
Pity only 15,596 of them have liked the Official Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/futurenetofficial/

Maybe they could get all there 1.5 million members to do a special useless task and LIKE the page?

The reason for this update (apart from the ludicrous 1.5 million member claim!) is to draw your attention to the 'server issues'. This is standard PONZI speak for 'slowing down'.
In the real world, changing servers is relatively easy and takes hours, not DAYS and certainly doesn't have any impact on the day to day running of a legit organisation. 
PONZI'S on the othe hand....

'Dear FutureNet & FutureAdPro users - You are over 1,500,000! (Yes, a over
1,5 million of people !!! :) )💪 It’s a great achievement, but also a big challenge for our team. In order to allow such a huge amount of user using FutureNet efficiently, we’re moving our platform to new, high-speed servers 🚀.Unfortunately, everything have pros and cons - while working on FutureNet’s servers, some temporary problems with access to them may appear. However it’s really worthy to be patient, IT works are on last stage, and the effects you will see by yourself ;) !


Update: 20th October 2017

Futurenet have been so busy since my last post, I thought it was time for an update.
So what have they been up to? 
Well, they're holding BIG events, claiming to be in partnership with BMW.
Futurenet Leasing says you can lease cars, boats and machinery...all with 'FutureNet' written all over it! 







They've opened up a cafe:





Sponsored some sports:




















 and they've got themselves a new spanking office!






But underneath all the glitter, it's still a ponzi with a capital 'P'.


These are Stephen's latest claims of earnings on a 3x3, 10 level matrix:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-7WFw4E5Vk









Product Member:
Member:   $10 into $44,000
Basic:     $25 into $150,000
Gold:      $50 into $373,000
...and that's just personal! Just look at the business claims:

Exclusive: $100 into $819,000
Sapphire:  $500 into $3,000,000
Royal:       $1000 into $7,400,000

How the hell does he say that with a straight face? $1000 into $7.4 MILLION?
I can barely write it without laughing, let alone sell it to anybody, but then, I'm honest.
This is the video in full:






Six Steps to FutureNet heaven:

1. THE PASSION WITH WHICH WE CREATE.
2. THE PROFESSIONALISM, CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT AND COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE.
3. THE CONSTANT SEARCH FOR NEW AND BETTER SOLUTIONS.
4. OPEN COMMUNICATION WITH PARTNERS, CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES.
5.  CO-OPERATION AND TRUST
6. HONESTY AND CREDIBILITY

Which again, means what exactly?

'FutureNet is a modern social and multimedia platform the purpose of which is providing Users a place to make contacts and making it possible to set up their own business. Publish posts, make comments, add likes, express your opinions, share files - do what you did so far for free and FutureNet will share with you their profits for being active and implementing marketing plan in a manner suitable for the terms and conditions set forth in these Regulations.'

or, if you prefer...

'The main purpose of FutureNet Portal is giving Users the possibility of using social networking platform, however, the developed earnings model is an additional functionality which is not indispensable in using the Portal but it gives the possibility t create own business.'


And for doing whatever that is, you get all these bonuses!
( From Terms And Conditions:) 

6. Earnings Model
6.3. Social Media Bonus
By typical activities performed in networking Portal (adding posts, commenting, giving likes, sharing files....) Users receive Social Media Bonus which may be later exchanged into FutureNet product packages. By purchasing a particular product package, the User receives an equivalent in the form of Media Point for which he/she can buy specific products Online and physical products.

6.6. Advertising Sales Bonus
A User may receive commission for each recruited customer (advertiser) on the Portal.

6.7. Friends Bonus
Each User by registering in the system is placed in so called matrix. This allows him/her to gain resources from the activity of other users in a passive way. Matrices are supplemented automatically (with the functioning of the platform) or in a targeted way (in case of inviting new users). Profits may be generated by active Users, therefore it is beneficial to have such persons in your matrix (co called Friends Bonus). Although, inviting is not necessary to gain passive income from the matrix.

6.8. Matching Bonus
From each invited user (partner) who buys a specific product package (Platform products) the Portal User additionally gets so called matching bonus. The aim of FutureNet is building active community which renders mutual assistance in starting activity within the platform and further development of the business. In spite of the existing service and bonus, Service Provider emphasizes that inviting new Users is the exclusive decision of the Contractors.

6.9. Leader Bonus (Infinity)
From Leader Bonus the User, within matrices, may achieve percentage income with no limitations further on, from 1st level into infinity. The amount of income depends on the qualifications held. If a User's personal Partner also qualifies to a particular level of Leader Bonus then the income constitutes a specific percentage of the difference.

Ah...so that's how you can make $7,000,000! Silly me! 


25th October 2017

'AlterBusiness' an MLM magazine with an online readership of 500 per day, has splashed FutureNet all over it's front page. Must be hard finding a good story about MLM...
This is what they say about them:

“Innovative vision, effectively realised for the past few years, gives members of FutureNet a guarantee of high profits and stability of the business”.

Yer, right. What about the absurd claim from FutureNet that you can turn $1000 into
 $7.4 million? Was that in the article? What do you think?










6th November 2017

And so it begins...

'Technical issues' with payment processors: 

'Dear users,
Due to technical issues, by the end of the week, AdvCash payment processor will be inactive. We suggest to use other available payment options on the platform. All transactions with AdvCash will be resumed in Next Week.
FutureNet team'





...and here we have a 'special offer':

'3 years in the online market, 3 years with all of you and we have plans to be 3 times better, stronger and bigger in 3 years from now!
With special occasion comes special promotions, that’s why 1st until 25th November:
Sponsor new 1 Royal - get extra 3 Futuro!
Sponsor 2 new Royals - get extra 5 Futuro!
Sponsor 3 new Royals - get extra 7 Futuro!
Sponsor 4 or more Royals - get extra 10 Futuro each!
Sponsor 5 or more Frontline Royals and win one of 5 travel vouchers, one of 2 Rolex watches or BMW 318i!!!'


It's the scam equivalent of a BOGOF supermarket offer, they must be getting desperate for new money!


9th November 2017
This time is those dastardly servers that won't work...have you tried WD40 Stephan?

'Dear members,

We would like to inform you that there are temporary technical difficulties in the data center, where our servers are located. Currently, engineers are about to determine the cause of this problem and will be working on a resolution. Please be patient until the issue is clarified - we hope it will happen as soon as possible.

Regards,
FutureNet Team'

..and just when you opened these classy offices in Tel Aviv as well:





13th November 2017

Futurenet really are having problems. This was posted on the Official FB page this morning:

'I made a bitcoin payment of 50 adpacks on Futureadpro but I never received. This is USD2,500 It took 2 weeks and support email just tells me to wait. I don’t even understand the reason why I just have to wait such a long time. It’s my partner’s money please send me back or give me adpacks.
My partner made the first payment she is starting to doubt .. and take actions on this issue
Please help this is very serious I’m losing trust and cannot continue business.'

I am with FutureNet and I can see my amazing results and I feel sorry for people like you that love put down other business. How do you think all the rest of the social media platform start from the bottom. I pray to the Lord that all the negative that people like you put in a company like FutureNet to come back to you and all your businesses. I use FutureNet and I am loving it and I wish that one day in the near future you will be asking us to let you be in it. I pet Facebook pay you shit lost of my to say all your rubbish.

    I looked at this in detail earlier in the year and thought it was a scam and started warning people away from it in February.

    Will now start sharing this link.

  4. Brilliant article. Keep up the good work Tara. I read something about Lee Oshea here and its sadly true. This guy was an ex binary options trader wannabe who has lured new people into ponzi scams in the last year. Based in Dubai he works for a hospital as a marketing director. He is a highly dangerous individual and needs to be exposed. Tara maybe a full expose ''Stepsys style''? We are monitoring him closely and i will be passing on all information to the Dubai authorities in due course.

Anyhoo found a system out for messaging lots from others on there, only to result in me being BANNED for 2 days WTF I put MY money into this and they stop me using it , CRAP !!!

  7. Hi Tara, thank you so much for this post!
    A couple of days ago one guy tried to talk me into it, tried all possible arguments including stuff like 'well if you don't want to make money, I understand', but I still refused to join. Too much experience with these scams - my father worked for Amway back in the 90s. The only two legitimate ways to make tons of money I know of is either to invest or roll up your sleeves, work your ass off and keep an eye on your budget.
    Your article is the best in depth analysis of this scam I have found on the web. Kudos to you! I'll keep my eye on your blog :)

He was very pushy and mean, and refused to take no for an answer when he asked me to sign up on his page. Little did he know that I am also a blogger and have since written an article about our conversation. It is not live yet, but I wanted you to know that I did reference this article a lot and linked back! Thank you again I really appreciate this article.

  9. Hi TARA,

    Sound like MyAdvertisingPays which is still on the market and people are still earning lots of money from it. Am I right that you have lost the court case with MAP and you were forced to take all the bulls***t that you wrote about them of your blog?
    Is there any online marketing company on the market that you have not classified as SCAM???

    Why don't you classify twitter or facebook as a SCAM?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 'people are still earning lots of money from it'.
      Firstly, no they aren't, its all fake numbers that people like you believe are real.
      Secondly, the court case was thrown out months ago and Mike managed to commit a Class 3 felony in the process by lying on the court documents. Thirdly, all 'click ten ads a day and get rich' schemes are SCAMS. And lastly, Twitter and Facebook? Seriously lol...

      Delete
  10. Tara Hi, I notice that the third party advertising and games packages etc are not being taken into consideration here This is what feeds the REAL TIME rev share that is paid out via the "click ten ads a day" system. It is not a fly by night get rich quick system. Once earning enough daily income to withdraw 5% is held back to go into the auto upgrade for your matrix.There is also a fantastic support system via team members and upline ...I wish you the best of luck in your choices and it saddens me that you haven't grasped the concept of teamwork

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My personal opinion is that Tara has grasped the concept of teamwork as she is helping an enormous amount of people to not get brainwashed! Are you Siobhan listening to "webinars" everyday? Paying a "fee" every month to earn? If you are then unfortunately you have, along with thousands of others, been and being brainwashed! Unless it's your money going into your business (which it isnt as you are paying a third party) then you are paying to be paid!
      Then you, Siobhan are also extracting money from people the same way as it's being extracted from you by signing up innocent people who just want to make some money. How do you sleep at night? Taking money from people where they will never see a return? Of course you can't see this as clearly the brainwashing has worked on you!
      I've looked into these schemes along with some professional and extremely successful people and find it absolutely amazing that people still fall for the trap, desperate times they must be in!

  11. Hi Tara, you've written a good article. I came on this page to see what your take on FutureNet is. However, unfortunately I found that it's inaccurate and misleading on numerous points about the compensation plan. Instead of watching outdated videos and third party information you are better off doing your own research. You are able to join as a free member and have access to all the compensation plan in numerous languages. I'm sure there'll be at least one that you will understand. If after that you are still unable to see where you've gone wrong then post here and I will help you. As long as you agree to share some of your advertising earnings you get from such misleading blogs with Autism Awareness Charity.

  12. Hey Tara, whilst these businesses are often not sustainable, many people DO make money for a while, often way more than their principal. Whilst ethically, it may be that some will not make money if they come in late, many do make money that is why they are popular. I agree with you that in many ways these are scams in the sense that they are unsustainable businesses, however, many people dip in make lots of money before it comes down - that is why they are so popular. Normal working people can earn some big money but there are hazards, risks, warnings and it is not a sustainable business model and some will not profit but that is a risk everyone needs to weigh up before taking a punt. I thik your research and detail is superb , I just think you are a little bit unbalanced in saying people dont make money - I know many have made and taken out 3, 4 or 5 times their initial sum. Like it or not, that is the attraction.

    1. Firstly anon, these aren't 'businesses', they're scams which ruin peoples lives. Secondly, the majority of people THINK they've made money, but actually haven't. The earnings are never withdrawn. Thirdly, a 'punt' is a bet with odds you can count on. Scams are scams, no matter how you dress them up. The small minority of people who make money out of these scams are just taking it from people who've lost it. Its disgusting, pure and simple.

  17. Hi Tara,
    You analysis about futurenet is wonderfull. A lady on my facebook advertised this scam. So i contacted her for more information and i got the video. After watching,i got more confused and suspicious. The fact that de head office is based in poland-europe and transactions is in dollars bothers me. SO i decided to do more research; de first site i came across claimed that it is a scam but the analysis and facts were not detailed like yours. I was glad to read yours and really appreciate all your efforts to warn people. It is very sad dat despite your good analysis, that some people still want to believe in this castle build of sands...

    1. All ponzis pay out in the beginning. But the money you're getting is just from new referrals. New money in, pays older members withdraws. That's how ponzis work. And you won't see many or any 'negative' or bad comments about FutureNet in your groups because if somebody posts the truth, the comments get deleted and the affiliate gets banned.

    2. I'm sorry but I've to disagree completely on your that reason there isn't a bad comment on her WhatsApp group... Please comments don't get deleted on WhatsApp. If you delete it from your end it still not deleted in the other end of the chat. Only on telegram secret chat feature is that possible. Please get that right.
      About your I'm not totally in agreement, some facts are right and others are really misplaced. That an office is a residential building or district doesn't automatically make it a scam regardless of what you might think. I've never ran a ponzi company but even when I was starting my business firm I started in my house, just like many other businesses that started at home or in a residential district. Even Steve Jobs Apple company started in his father's garage, right in their basement. It's also wrong to think that a small handful of staff in a photo, even if some of them are family members and friends, simply makes a strong case for fake staff. Honestly it's insulting to young business start-ups. I came from a family of small start-ups and I being a graphic designer and photographer and to work for my two elder sisters who also had young startup companies without money to push their company but dreams of a better future. My two elder sisters were a makeup artist and a fashion designer respectively and my younger sister is an amateur model and a dancer and she had pose with my sister's designs while I shoot the photographs and my eldest sister handles the makeup. And this was just to make sure we don't give up on our dreams. Occasionally friends will come in to lend a hand. In your analysis we should also be regarded as a fake staff. Remember I was paid no matter how little. Which qualifies as a job.
      I have said a lot and won't want continue stressing my point. I respect your view but I don't agree to sense of objectiveness.
      Thanks

Why call it scam when owners are genuine and doing everything to make this a longterm and sustainable business. With alot of prospects from the owners, am ready to do this business.

  21. Hello, Thanks for the article I have warned my friends about this for slightly different reasons to yours ie what are you actually paying for and the whole matrix setup just doesn't seem 100% correct from an Islamic perspective however its difficult to convince anyone when they've invested so much into it. They actually know that it cant last but they're hoping that it will last long enough to get their original money out and then anything they lose will not hurt as much. I discussed this with another friend of mine who thankfully agreed not to join after almost joining them. In his investigation he told me about another person who had lost their house in the trafficmonsoon scam so this is playing with peoples lives. They're gambling on the idea that it won't happen to them but when they get comfortable that's when they'll get hit and it will be too late with no comebacks.

    To any fellow muslims who read my comment Rizq is fixed so find another way to provide for your family , if its written for you then you will find it in another way, getting rich or accumulating wealth is not the purpose of life nor is it the purpose of earning money but it is to provide for your family, solve your problems and help those in need in order to gain reward for the akhirah.

    Thanks again for writing the article.

  22. I came across this Review while checking FutureNet and FutureNet Pro. I have to say from start to Finish this whole review is slated towards it being a Ponzi. A big part is made out of slating the past of the founders and the so called office, as we all know a lot of successful business man have a history of failure and bankruptcy, take for example Donald Trump! The concepts of Multi Level Marketing and revenue share is seen as a scam, while there are loads of ethical companies that use those concepts, they are not illegal and not inherently wrong.

    Lets take a just one thing that you have said that are just not true and not properly researched, one of them is that you state it is a LIE that a adpack increases over time to the value of $60, while everybody whose has purchased the adpack will tell you that they do increase to $60 an increase of 20% a lot better than putting my money in the bank while the interest is almost negative, and an extremely good reason to join this opportunity!

    So your response will probably be even it is true (Yes it is) how do they get the money? Well again if you had bothered to really investigate you would have found out that FutureNet already receives a lot of external advertising revenues, it develops games and other software also for other companies, and even has a shopping platform. This is by no means all of the revenue stream and more are always added making sure that the company can continue to pay the members revenue shares and commissions.

    You mention Facebook, what do you think is more ethical making billions on the back of people using YOUR likes and dislikes, ages, country and region, spending patterns for selling adverts, or FutureNet that rewards people who are active or introduce people with revenue shares and commissions? As you said Facebook makes billions, but does not give them away, FutureNet makes revenue as well but chooses to share it with there members.

    So in my opinion the review was biased and not based upon for example "scammed users" people who have actually lost money, I know as I have been unable to find any.

    IF anybody likes to know the truth about FutureNet, get in touch with me.

  30. Thank you for this article. I'm from Poland (although currently studying in Scotland) and yesterday my boyfriend's brother tried to convince my bf to try this "business"... I smelled scam since the beginning, but my bf was like "c'mon my brother wouldn't like to con me... It has to work well if he's telling me about it". Fortunately, he changed his mind later, he realised that it was a ponzi. But his brother is mad at me now :D cause I stole him the potential affiliate xD It's so funny (and scary at the same time), the guy has two successful shops and had a café earlier so it seemed to me that he knew some basic rules about economics, entrepreneurship etc. but nope, I was wrong.

Shame on you Tara! What an opportunity you lost! Tisk tisk tisk! I just joined futurenet may this year and oh la la it has paid me real good! There's nothing in life that's free! You must work for it and if recruiting is the work to one million dollars oh please excuse me let me lead the way! Upgrading to the matrix is not by force you upgrade if you want to earn more or earn from spill overs you can as well stay on the social platform and have fun! While you make your 5 cents daily from your activity. I have been in Facebook for 10 years and not a dime did it pay me for all the volunteers recruiting I did for it rather I helped make mark Zuckerberg one of the richest people on earth! Because where there are plenty people there are markets as companies flood there to advertise on it! Hate futurenet all you want but the idea of social media platform is solid while you hate others are making big buck! Shame you must be so embarrassed with your hate to join now even if you want to! Sorry Tara! Your tongue or rather fingers was faster than you this time calling something scam that could actually change your life for good financially! Show me a Business devoid of recruiting and I will show you that the business is dead! Let Facebook stop gaining huge members tomorrow and see if mark Zuckerberg don't go poor except he made some really good investments before hard! With that said where is MySpace? Hahahaha!

  35. Thanks Everyone who has defended Futurenet. No matter what rubbish being written about Futurenet, nobody has any issues with Withdrawal. More over, this business was built to last long with external products, sources of income position to bring the revenue for all Partners to share. As long as this business continue to shape and change lives, those who are mislead by this blog will regret why they didn't join. In Future Net, you can decide to grow back all your EARNINGS and withdraw everything. It means that you have taken your money and no revenue sharing for you. Futurenet keep on opening more and more income generation to make more money which will be shared with their Partners. Contact me if you want to know about the truth. The Owners of this business is not hiding in all their events as well as connection across the world but the owner of this useless blog is hiding. You lied about Traffic Monsoon by misleading people from what TM stand for. When Traffic Monsoon comes back from Appeal, tell me what you are going to do. People like you are good for nothing with no achievement. If you are saying the truth, unmasked yourself. Futurenet has phone and other products position to bring more revenue for people to earn a living. What do you have to offer the world - hatred!!!, Pulling down Startup Business like you have ever started a business that put food on people table. Nobody is scamming anyone because everything is there to check out how this system works before making a decision to invest money into it. Work is involved to earn so if you are not ready to work, then don't join. Your end of rubbish blogging is coming. Unmasked yourself like Owners of Traffic Monsoon and Futurenet while writing your blog about this business because you know nothing about this business and it's future as the business expand.

    1. Which proves it's a ponzi you silly man! If they can manually overide commission payments instead of crediting payouts per click, the programmes a SCAM! And as for AdPro, ALL ponzis payout in the beginning!

      Delete
    2. I find it hard to reply because 1) I am a member at Futurenet and I do use AdPro but 2) I do understand Tara's points also. So, let's agree we will not go into any debate about FutureNet being a ponzi or not because for the sake of my response it does not even matter.

      Tara's point about signs of a ponzi for at least FutureAdPro could be valid in the first place if not....

      You see, many many years ago there was this very popular autosurf program called 12dailypro.
      You had to sign up, upgrade for a desired amound on which then you would earn 12 % daily for 12 days hence being a profit of 144%. You had to watch ads every day to earn your daily 12%.
      After that you could either re-invest or withdraw.

      As almost all those opportunities one could recruit new members and earn commissions.
      As I said, it was the MOST popular program amongst many of those autosurf programs.
      I was a member over there and I had my team and all of us earned a lot of money (ten fold)

      However, at some point, when students began to recruit on their campusses the US governement tok action and the program was brought down in the end accused of being a ponzi scheme.

      And in the end to be honest, it WAS a ponzi scheme. The thing is, most of the participants knew this and there were even complete guidelines to find in many of the major forums out there about how to deal with these kind of programs. Most people I knew considered these kind of programs to be like a game only risking what they could afford to lose.

      Now what is the difference then with FutureAdPro?

      In FutureAdPro you buy AdPacks which entitle you to benefit from the companies revenues.
      You have to click your 10 ads a day. That is true but it is not basde on THTAT for you to earn.

      I noticed that once I am qualified for the day the revenue process goes on during that day.
      Buying an AdPack is more to be considered like taking part in the company as a kind of stakeholder which entitles you to receive revenue shares based on the amounts of adpacks.
      Yes, you must do your daily 10 ads job but this is most probably done to make sure these ads are actualy being watched. i see a clear difference between this concept and the old autosurf programs out there.

      About being ethical. As I said most people back then KNEW what they were joining and I believe it is only fair to point out the possibility of being a ponzi. On the other hand, like in any investment it is like taking calculated risk. If you invest, you don't know the outcome either and therefore my advice always would be: if you want to join such an opportunity (FutureNet or any other opportunity) invest what you can afford to loose. Have fun. Recruit if you like and by all means don't recruit if you don't like that part. Most important: grow you investment until a certain amount and take your initial investment out of the program as soon as possible. In that way, even if it would turn out to be a ponzi you will have at least your initial capital back. This was the main advice back then as it is my advices nowadays.

      At Tara: I do appreciate your blog and your article. You are trying to warn people and safe them for a disaster. I applaud for you. I did the very same thing in the past only to find out that many, if not most people turned their back on me. A person who does not want to get help cannot be helped I learned. You put a lot of energy in exposing possible scams but my dear friend, have you calculated your lost of energy against your gains? I am not suggesting you should stop doing what you do, but think about it for a minute. Is this really what you want? To put so much effort in it only to receive so many responses containing negativism?

      It is good to speak and share. Let us listen, let us speak and let us remain respectful towards eachother. All of us
