What is Infinity Downline? Infinity Downline is an affiliate program, which sells membership to access to training software.
Peter Wolfing explains what Infinity Downline is.
In my opinion the Infinity Downline scam is a pure and simple cash gifting pyramid scheme where you make direct payments to the person that recruited you with the intention of gaining the privilege to do the same.
All 50 states have laws against pyramid schemes.
You may be asking why they have not been shutdown. Infinity Downline offers low value, out of date, and Master Resale Rights content to provide the cover for the cash gifting pyramid scheme.
Your membership fee is non-refundable. All sales are final.
Many of the videos are made by Fire Ball Video: fireballvideo.com. Fire Ball Video’s website is no longer active.
Here are some examples of how out of date the website’s content is.
They list Internet Explorer training for version 7. Internet Explorer is now version 11.
They list Windows training for Vista. Windows is now version 8.
Here is an example of the low value Master Resale Rights content that is provided: You And Your Tattoo audio book.
The compensation plan video was created back in 2009 and has not been updated with the changes to the compensation plan. You are no longer qualified for life to receive pass ups when you get your 4 people. When someone drops out you will need to replace them to remain qualified. This change to the compensation plan was made back in 2011.
Infinity Downline Compensation Plan Video.
In order to qualify oneself for commissions from one’s downline, one must first “pass-up” two “qualifiers” to his sponsor. Should one or both of those pass-ups drop out of the program they will need to be replaced. One must provide two active passups and they must stay active. If they become inactive one can now expect the Infinity Downline system to reallocate another member of one’s downline, to pass it up to the sponsor in order to replace the now inactive one.
The problems with 2-up compensation plans.
The only programs still offering the 2-Up, or any such variation, are relatively recent start ups or blatant money games.
The Aussie Two-Up. Or One-up, or Three-Up, or any variation of ups. There’s no way to fix this unredeemable, corrupt and historically failed system of compensation, so any variation of it should be avoided.
So with virtually a 100% long term failure rate throughout MLM history, why has the 2-Up refused to die? In fact, it seems to be experiencing a mild resurgence of late. The reason is twofold:
1. It actually rolls up tons of cash to the company;
2. It appears to roll up tons of cash to the distributor – on paper.
The 2-Up looks so good on paper because you only see what you get paid on the first level, but they never tell you that this percentage takes a precipitous plunge starting on the next level. You see the number of people you are paid on doubling upward, but are never shown the massive proliferation of sales you are paid nothing on that you would have otherwise been paid on in every other type of plan. – Source Marketwaveinc.com
Legitimate programs are driven by the sales of products and services, not by recruitment of new people. – Source Mlmlaw.com
James Matthews explains clearly what you need to do to have success in the Infinity Downline scam.
With the Infinity Downline scam your income relies on the ability of people to recruit others to the fold. You only get your money if the people you recruited (and their “pass ups”) are paying their monthly membership fee. They only get their money if the people they recruited are paying their monthly fee. If the people 4 levels down aren’t able to recruit anyone, they’re soon going to stop paying their monthly fee (why pay $25 a month for nothing?). Once that happens, the people 3 levels down will stop getting income, and then will stop paying their monthly fee, which means the people 2 levels down will stop getting income, and so on. That’s why it’s a pyramid — without the lower levels paying their dues, the upper levels eventually have little or no income. Since you aren’t even selling a product, you have no chance to earn income except by convincing other people to pay $25 a month. Infinity Downline is a pyramid scheme that uses low value and outdated training to provide the cover to remain legal. In my opinion not only should this be avoided, but it should be illegal.
Here are some other schemes by Peter Wolfing and Multiplex Systems.
“Yes, Turbo Cycler is indeed a SCAM. I joined LONG before the launch as a Founder. My sponsor hounded me to take two positions because Peter Wolfing had promised her that all of his people (I suppose his list) would be joining after her team, and we would cycle quickly and multiple times. This did not happen.
What did happen was that I lost a great deal of money that I could have used to join another program which has, in fact, been very lucrative for me.
I would advise anyone NOT to join this program. Yes, it is gifting. Yes, cash gifting is illegal. Yes, I was deceived. No,I will never join another program structured like this one.” – Source behindmlm.com
“Each person in HOH is signing a document to send along with the “gift” they are sending to their sponsor stating that the money they are sending is a cash “gift” and they expect nothing in return. We as citizens of the USA have the right to gift another individual up to 10,000USD without having to report it to the government. It’s our rights.” – Source Scam.com
