iPAS2 Scam? Yes It Is In My Opinion!
In my opinion, the Empower Network is one of the most abusive scams I have run into. For example, David Wood the owner tells people “I punch wussies in the face.“. Wussies are people that do not invest over $5000 in his scam business opportunity. When my subscribers recommended I take a look into iPAS2, a giant red flag was raised when I found out iPAS2 was linked with the Empower Network. Here is my review of iPAS2.

The iPAS2 system is a sales funnel attached to the Empower Network sales funnel. The primary purpose of the Empower Network is to sell the Empower Network packages. By iPAS attaching their own sales funnel to the Empower Network, they are telling you that they do not believe that the Empower Network is effective at selling their own packages. The simple question is why are you selling the Empower Network if it is not effective?
Here is what Frank Kern had to say about the Empower Network and iPAS2:
Get rich quick by joining an MLM that sells you the opportunity to get rich quick by selling the opportunity to get rich quick via selling get rich quick info-products. That’s what it looks like on the surface …to me anyway …and I want nothing to do with it.
If people want to sell it – that’s their business – but using my likeness to do so is misleading .
I do not even remotely support this or have anything to do with it.
That’s not the side of the law that I want to be on.
I am not a big fan of Frank Kern, but his comment was priceless.
In the original iPAS video, they explain how you will go broke if you sell things that do not offer an 80% commission. When iPAS2 rolled out, they offer you a 50-70% commission on their products. They do not follow their own guidance on what commission level you should be paid to not go broke.
In my opinion, all you have to do is look at their FAQ and income disclosure to see that their claim of “All risk of failure has been annihilated!” is deceptive.

iPAS2 Compensation Plan
Currently, all Empower Network products operate on a “dynamic powerline” system, where the 1st, 3rd and 5th and then every 5th sale thereafter of every product passes to the qualifying sponsor, and you keep the commissions on the purchase and ongoing commissions on all other personal sales on products you qualify for. – Source Empower Network Compensation Plan

Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s not. It’s a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money. – Source FTC
“I have seen a deaf man onstage make $1000 per day.” – David Sharpe
In my opinion, the Empower Network will say anything to get your money.
If you purchase the products recommended by iPAS2 and wait 30 days, you will end up unable to get a refund for any of the Empower Network products.
Refund Policy iPAS2
There is a strict 30-day return policy.
Refund Policy Empower Network
There is a strict 14-day return policy.

The online business didn’t work for me. It seemed like iPas2 took my money and didn’t solve any thing, but they did cause me to put the only money I had left into there company. I wouldn’t recommend this business to any person that ain’t a millionaire!
Heather Topping January 8 2015
It happened to me too, but then they took 2 payments out of my account even though i am not using the system.
Aiden Uribe January 9 2015
Same here! at first i was like “this seems legit! then its like oh! you have to pay for this product now….then oh you have to pay 3000 bucks for my lesson! so i canceled! only to find out they billed me today! fuckin scam!
iPAS2 Scam Conclusion
In my opinion, iPAS2 does nothing other than charge you to sell a business opportunity that sells a business opportunity that offers business opportunity marketing information. This is a scam on a scam. There are basically NO retail customers. Each individual who profits, does so primarily from the payments of others who are themselves making payments in order to obtain their own profit. Avoid the iPAS2 scam.
