Ash Mufareh closes OnPassive Ofounders signups. Um, OK?
On June 23rd a few hundred OnPassive regulars jumped on a Zoom stream and celebrated Ash Mufareh closing Ofounders sign ups.
The next day Mufareh appeared on a follow up stream. He told Ofounders that OnPassive had over-delivered and they should be grateful.
And then he left.
If it sounds like I’m condensing things, I’m not. There’s literally nothing much else to report on.
I was tipped off to Mufareh closing OnPassive signups by Alanda from The Recovering Hunbot.
Alanda covered the follow up stream with The Queen of Spade in a reaction stream, uploaded June 24th.
I vaguely recall the prospect of OnPassive stopping recruitment being a thing a few years back. I did go looking for it in our comments but came up blank. It wasn’t covered in an article but I know the discussion is there buried somewhere in the comments.
Anyway, with recruitment closed no doubt those who shelled out $97 for a position (or multiple positions), are wondering what comes next.
All Mufareh had to say was not to worry;
We’re not going away, we’re going ahead. We’re going forward, we’re going higher.
We’re not asking for additional effort or pay from the founders.
He clarified that while OnPassive Ofounders can apply for a refund (not sure if that actually works for those who want out), they’re prohibited from selling their positions.
People who signed up as OnPassive Ofounders but haven’t paid the sign up fee are also still able to do so. Mufareh did represent unpaid accounts would be deleted at some point but didn’t provide a deadline.
Funnily enough you can still visit the Ofounders website and sign up. Go figure.
As of June 16th, OnPassive boasted of having 1,372,000 Ofounders signups. At $97 a pop, this comes to $133 million.
Three and a half years into OnPassive and the only people who’ve made any money are Ash Mufareh and his Indian staff.
Beyond documenting OnPassive never actually launching, I don’t have much interest in the scheme at this point. If you look at who shows up to OnPassive webinars, it’s mostly an assortment of middle-aged people who don’t seem very technically inclined.
I don’t mean any of that as an insult, it’s just kinda sad to watch play out.
I mean take a step back from the idolzation of Mufareh for a second and just think about it. We”re on the tail-end of arguably the biggest boom companies like Zoom have ever experienced.
Companies with clone “me too” Zoom like products should at least have exhibited some growth no? Instead we’ve had OnPassive spam Dubai for a few days and hold endless marketing webinars. Oh and local offices that nobody actually uses.
If OnPassive wasn’t just a cruel joke played out on victims who haven’t realized it yet, they’ve absolutely missed the biggest explosion in their product niche ever seen.
Even today you still can’t actually purchase anything from OnPassive’s website. OnPassive marketing webinars are still being held over Zoom and being rebroadcast to YouTube!
It truly boggles the mind how far down the garden path some of the people in OnPassive have been lead.
The original OnPassive marketing promise four years ago was what, AI that’d somehow build a business for you? Yeah that never happened, did it.
For all the talk of AI you still had Mufareh, from his laptop, micromanaging every second of OnPassive’s Dubai “launch but not really” April event.
Where is it? Bugger the marketing, demonstrate the bloody products already! Let customers actually buy them. Hell, let Ofounders actually use them to prove this isn’t all just conceptual nonsense.
And I mean use them in practice. Not some one-off carefully staged demo.
Either OnPassive’s “me too” suite is ready to go or it isn’t. And if you’re advertising vaporware products and services on OnPassive’s website that don’t actually exist, how are none of the Ofounders not realizing they’ve been had?
This far down the rabbit-hole do they even care?
I’m not expecting too much from the OnPassive camp with respect to future coverage. Mufareh will probably dial up the marketing a bit but I don’t see what’s supposed to keep the never-ending hype train going if people can’t sign anyone up.
At least by expanding the scam Ofounders had a sense of momentum disconnect from Mufareh’s broken promises, sorry “over delivering”.
Now there’s just what, more endless webinars to tune into? How long before Mufareh’s already exhausted “we’ve got more new products nobody can use just around the corner” hypnosis wears off?
You’ve scammed your millions Ash. Move to Dubai and just let it die. Or hell stay in the US if you want. The FTC haven’t shown any interest thus far.
Whatever you decide to do, put these people out of their misery already. Let them accept the loss and move on.
GD right!! This whole OnPassive thing is nothing but mf’ing complete bullshit!
Yes I’m a “founder” (4 some odd yrs ago) and very stupidly sent this moron $97. I’m sure it’s gone. Oh well. Live n learn!!
To be fair, there is are email, social media, staff management and a couple of other OP products in the Founder back office, which can be road tested.
Only problem is, they’re all really, really bad. Like they were made in a weekend by someone on Fiverr. And there is zero AI in evidence on any of them.
If what’s available isn’t retail ready, then Ash needs to stop going on about some fictional PHD dumbshit whose going to come up with new exclusive products for them.
If your el cheapo devs can’t clone existing Zoom and other me-too products, you’ve got no business stringing people along with new launches.
I know this is all BS and OnPassive has been a scam from day one, but maybe pulling apart the marketing nonsense will wake some Ofounders up.
Some of the most brainwashed people I’ve ever met are OnPassive “Founders”.
I feel sorry they’ve wasted some money but worse they’ve wasted time…years for many…believing $97 is going to turn into $10K a month or more to them.
It’s been a scam from the beginning and $100 Million can buy Ash a lot of hiding time! Just look at Ruja and OneCoin.
Well Ash has claimed Onpassive will be seen from space!
Somehow “millions” of people are just lined up waiting and watching to join.
Are all around the corner as Ash pays the way of homeless and poor people to be in the founder ranks.
The list of huge claims and delays are endless.
The “value” is all there as Ash wants to refund everyone with a “kiss”.
Latest bs here is that KYC is coming soon…
We all knows how that ends… lol.
MLM KYC = Keep Your Cash.
Latest bs here….
Ash mufareh now claims that onpassive is a sponsor for the Fifa 2022 world cup…of course there is no mention of onpassive on the Fifa websites list of sponsors…lol…
And in a 5hr zoom meeting today comp plan was mentioned but of course very little detail..(no I didn’t watch it..lol)..
And founder positions are being sold again…this is now the 3rd time that founder position sales will be closing soon…lol
the pending registration was still active on early November 2022. They simply gave it to the handful of “leaders” to conduct.
Anyone who wants to pay till that date : could join and become a founder.
today : 20th Nov 2022: the big launch day has come and nothing happened. well, they got a new back office site. that’s all.
Almost 5 years now and still not one word from Ass Mufareh about how anyone will earn money here…
More and more founders are finally working out that they have been scammed…
How does a launch work when you can’t register a new account or login?
the thing is that soft launch was always mentioned in connection of huge founders revenue.
yet, if you listen closely such revenue need to be split between the founder, his uplink founder and the company itself.
So far no one laid out the exact cut of such sale which means: all sales are company profit only.
So what onpassive did: they let out only handful free (under market value) products. no one will gain profit from those. not even founders.
However, if you really want to use the products you will need to purchase the plugins (a.k.a traffic packages).
it doesn’t matter if its traffic or oranges or activation fee or season pass. it is just another payment you need to do in order to keep onpassive alive and meanwhile you sit and wait.
