VIP AdShares Review: $10 – $1000 ad based Ponzi
There is no information on the VIP AdShares website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The VIP AdShares website domain (“vipadshares.com”) was registered on the 28th of September 2013, however the domain registration is set to private.
On VIP AdShares’ FAQ page, the company informs that it ‘is owned by the RWB Networks group’. No further information is provided, with RWB Networks group only appearing on the internet in conjunction with VIP AdShares.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
The VIP AdShares Product Line
VIP AdShares has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market membership to the company itself.
After joining affiliates can then “purchase” what VIP AdShares refer to as “Ad Plan shares”, with each share costing between $10 to $1000.
Ad Plan shares are bundled with advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the VIP AdShares website.
The VIP AdShares Compensation Plan
The VIP AdShares compensation plan revolves around affiliates making $10 to $1000 investments with the company, on the advertised promise of an up to 200% “profit return”.
How much of a ROI an affiliate is paid out depends on the amount of money they invest:
- $10 – 150% ROI
- $50 – 160% ROI
- $100 – 170% ROI
- $1000 – 200% ROI
This profit return (an effective ROI) is paid out “every 30 minutes”, with affiliates required to view company-supplied ads in order to qualify. Alternatively VIP AdShares affiliates can pay the company an additional fee and bypass the ad-viewing requirement.
All VIP AdShares affiliates are capped from withdrawing no more than $1000 a day. 10% of all ROIs are also held in a repurchase account, with affiliates only able to re-invest the money held.
Referral commissions are paid out on all investments made by personally recruited affiliates and their downlines, paid out down three levels of recruitment:
- Level 1 – 8%
- Level 2 – 4%
- Level 3 – 2%
Joining VIP AdShares
Affiliate membership to VIP AdShares is free. Free affiliates can generate referral commissions by convincing others to invest, however they themselves will need to invest if they wish to withdraw commissions.
We share 90% of the revenue received for all new shares and advertising purchased with all other active shares, up to 200%
With no revenue other than $10 – $1000 investments made by affiliates, VIP AdShares fits the definition of a 200% ROI Ponzi scheme.
At VIP Ad Shares we share the profits for every product purchase with all members who have purchased our companies Ad Plan shares.
Affiliates pump new money into the scheme under the guise of Ad Plan shares, which is then used to pay out existing investors.
Despite the obvious Ponzi scheme nature of the VIP AdShares business model however, the company insists they do not accept investments:
Are we an investment opportunity?
No, we are not an investment opportunity.
A look at the VIP AdShares source-code (in addition to their compensation plan) however, reveals a different picture:
“Not an investment opportunity” but clearly targeting investment related keywords? Riiiiiiiiiight.
Additionally VIP AdShares runs on the XSharePro script (advertised as XSplitPro):
The XSharePro script costs $297, with the company advising on their website:
XSharePro Script – the master way that enables others to order advertising slots from your Revenue Sharing web site, providing YOU with (daily) doses of passive income…
The only way to generate a sizeable ROI and potentially make a small fortune online is to sell advertising to others.
Once you own the Revenue Sharing script, you’re the king of advertising on your site because users join in (eager to make money) and they buy an ad slot (or multiple slots).
Each slot comes with a free advertising package like Text Ad, Banner Ad, Solo Ad. + % of return on their initial investment.
But remember, VIP AdShares is totally not a Ponzi investment scheme that will totally not collapse once new investor money stop flowing in.
