Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller Warning About Wings Network
October 23, 2014 – Secretary of State Ross Miller warns Nevadans to beware of a possibly fraudulent investment scheme targeting minority communities, specifically Spanish and Portuguese. Wings Network is a multi-level marketing program that is advertising online, and being sold door-to-door or through friends and relatives.
Wings Network offers investors various packages ranging from $49 to $1,499. The “Elite” package purportedly requires an investor to purchase the package for $1,499, pay an activation fee of $49, and recruit two additional people to buy the package. The seller then allegedly promises that the investor is guaranteed to receive a minimum of $750 per month for one year afterward.
Investors may be told that Wings Network is associated with smartphone applications compatible with Google Play and Apple. Individuals who purchase the “Elite” package gain access to the Wings Network website, which provides them with information related to their purchase. Wings Network is allegedly associated with Tropikgadget FZE located in the United Arab Emirates. – Source Nvsos.gov
After the below complaint was filed against the Wings Network, operations were supposedly stopped in the United States. From the above warning in Nevada that does not seem to be the case.
Mass. Secretary of State William Galvin’s Complaint Against Wings Network
May 15, 2014 – Wings Network purportedly offers for sale a product involving technologically advanced and innovative mobile marketing platforms that allows consumers to download electronic content for a fee. However, the product is ancellary to the business of recruiting other investors to become participants in Wings Network by purchasing one of the starter packs. The marketing materials, online selling presentations and assertions by the individual Respondents make it clear that the primary purpose of Wings Netowrk is to recruit additional members. Furthermore, the opportunity can only be realized if the prospective investors make mandatory payments for a starter package and pay a membership fee. The Enforcement Section asserts that the Wings Network multilevel marketing business opportunity is actually a thinly veiled pyramid scheme.
The use of trendy internet terms combined with meaningless high technology buzzwords and slick websites are all devices to dazzle prospective investors and induce them to purchase their way into the Wings Network scheme. The product itself is redundant because it is not necessary to use any product, including Respondents’ product, to download electronic content. In fact, none of the Massachusetts investors ever used the product and were told that the product and sales of the product were unimportant to the true purpose of the program. The true purpose of the program was to recruit additional participants into the Wings Network and investors were told that recruitment was how the investor was going to make any significant money.

It’s important to get a complete picture of how the plan works: not just how much money distributors make, but also how much time and money they spend on the plan, how long it takes before they’re earning money, and how big a downline is needed to make money. One sign of a pyramid scheme is if distributors sell more product to other distributors than to the public — or if they make more money from recruiting than they do from selling. -Source Federal Trade Commission on Multi-Level Marketing
Wings Network Scam Conclusion
In my opinion the Wings Network is a clear Pyramid/Ponzi scheme and should be shutdown worldwide today. If these scammers come to your door send them away.
