25 Dollar Legacy is still around today, although Alexa traffic estimates suggest recruitment flatlined in late 2016.

Platinum World Team Build Products
Platinum World Team Build has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Platinum World Team Build affiliate membership itself.
The Platinum World Team Build Compensation Plan
Platinum World Team Build affiliates invest $100 on the promise of an advertised $166,800 ROI.
This ROI is funded by subsequent affiliate investment and paid through a two-tier matrix cycler.
Matrix sizes used in Platinum World Team Build’s cycler are 2×3 and 2×4.
A 2×3 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them:
These two positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first two positions into another two positions each (4 positions).
The third level of the matrix is generated in the same manner and houses eight positions.
A 2×4 matrix adds an additional fourth level and sixteen positions to the matrix.
After investing $100, a Platinum World Team Build affiliate is placed at the top of a 2×4 matrix.
Commissions are generated as positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of Platinum World Team Build affiliates as follows:
Stage 1 Matrix (2×4)
- level 1 (positions cost $100) – receive $200
- level 2 (level unlock costs $200) – receive $800
- level 3 (level unlock costs $500) – receive $4000
- level 4 (level unlock costs $2000 – receive $32,000
Stage 2 Matrix (2×3)
- level 1 (matrix entry is $5000) – receive $10,000
- level 2 (level unlock is $7500) – receive $30,000
- level 3 (level unlock is $15,000) – receive $120,000
Note that to withdraw any commission payouts, a Platinum World Team Build affiliate must personally recruit at least two affiliates.
Joining Platinum World Team Build
Platinum World Team Build affiliate membership is tied to a $100 matrix cycler position fee.
With 25 Dollar Legacy having stalled or close to, Ramon Escalera is trying his luck with another MLM underbelly scheme.
This time is a Ponzi cycler, with a $100 investment delivering an eventual $166,800 ROI.
That ROI is paid out subsequently invested funds, making Platinum World Team Build a Ponzi scheme. A pyramid layer is also added by way of requiring each affiliate to recruit two new affiliates.
And while the eventual ROI Platinum World Team Build advertise might sound enticing, it’s important to remember that realistically the only position(s) that will get close to this are those owned by Escalera.
At $100 a pop you’re looking at 1688 $100 investments at a minimum to generate a ROI. The upper matrix tiers will feed directly into Escalera’s position(s), meaning a ton of recruitment will have to take place if any other affiliates are to reach it.
Then of course there’s the Ponzi problem of even more affiliate recruitment required to pay off those affiliates and… well, you know how that ends.
Raymon Escalera makes his money and pretty much everyone else loses out.
