    I see ads for SFI all the time and always wondered if anyone makes money or if it is a big scam. Any successes with SFI?

    That's sixfigureincome.com .... Total scam I'm sure.

    It's another miracle pill pusher that requires sellers to be buyers before they get paid.

    Lot's of promises that probably are legit but in the real world you are not going to get the pyramid to actually work. You may with the aid of the internet get lot's of people signed up under you but they still won't really buy.

    Question is who do you know that's buying these products or would buy them on a regular basis?

    If you know people that would do so then you might do well with sfi otherwise for the rest of us they stink.

    It's Six Figure Income. An MLM. But I can't say if it's a scam or not, since I haven't heard any reports except from those peddling it. (I'm not involved with it...)

    I think it's at www.sixfigureincome.com

    I get emailed about it all the time telling me how I'm going to be rich if I join. With all the activity and spamming I figure it's probably the result of one of two things:
    1)Either they are making big money and spamming is actually working.
    OR
    2)They sunk too much money into it and are desperately trying to break even.

    What are the odds that #2 is the real reason?

    SFI= ers

    Avoid them, I was a paid member but became very upset when they charged my card for consecutive months without my approval!

    We have made over $5,000 with SFI in that last 12 months.

    It's an easy program to make money with. You get $1 for each affiliate you get or free copy of Six Figure Income of you set the clickbucks links to pay you $1. It's not hard to give away 100 or more free subs or get 100 affiliate deals each month. Got an $1,100 dollar check last December. They pay on time too.

    As for the MLM part...It's $30 per month and you have lots of commissionable stuff to sell. Plus, if you get someone to pay the $30 you make an extra $10 every month. Also, they run Mint Mail which pays like clockwork and is easy to make money with.

    Overall, we have averaged about $300 to $500 per month in profit from spinning a few SFI banners and doing one or two email prmotions every other month.

    Could be better, but compared to most things going right now...it's FREE money.

    That's one of the problems with MLM, the people who get in first DO make money and that encourages later suckers, I mean opportunity seekers who loose their shirts.

    I joined before I found out it was MLM and was disgusted to find out they wanted me to pay them $30 a month so they could pay me commissions.

    Ask yourself how many affiliate companies would you be willing to pay $30 a month to just so they could pay you commissions.

    This one is run by those MLM chalk board guys who used to have to hold the presure home meetings to recruit. I signed up with them over a year ago and thru up a few banners. Too many phone calls from the upline guys ...thousands of spamming notices that so & so had joined my group. Many more begging for the 30.00 fee to get to the real bucks. Hard to get off their spamm list and they do sell off to their other the lists of those who pay the 30.00.

    I think I have over 5000 under me..some who paid the 30.00 but as expected not one penny of revenue. Big scamm so run from this one.

    Any scheme that works on a "pyramid" structure will only benefit the early adopters.

    These things don't actually generate any money apart from those of it's members, so the only way to get rich is to take money from someone else. Also, the rate of growth is exponential, so the number of new joiners required to keep up the $10,000 payouts very soon exceeds the number of people on the planet.

    Look at it another way - it's a lottery. You might lose your stake (you probably will) but you could win too. I'd sooner just spend my money on a lottery ticket, at least I know where the profits go!

    Mike,

    The reason you didn't get a check is you have to go make sure your account is set on
    $1 per click book...then you would have gotten $1 for every one of the people you personally registered.

    Playing their MLM game is not overly lucrative but the free magazine deal works well if you have your account set right

    I guess that's why they charged my VISA without my permission. Those creeps just assumed that because I joined up one month I wanted to stay a member month over month.

    Very nasty people when it came right down to the nitty gritty.

    I am warning you all, STAY AWAY

    Before I knew any better, I joined about a year ago. They did some consolidating and I wound up with a downline of about 2500 people. Yes, 2500. So, I thought I'd make some money, but I made about $10 a month. No one buys, but everyone tries to sell. It's a scam.
