7 Dollar Freedom Review: $1.75 – $27 cash gifting Ponzi
There is no information on the 7 Dollar Freedom indicating who owns or runs the business.
The 7 Dollar Freedom website domain (“7dollarfreedom.com”) was registered on the 4th of November 2014, with a “Kia Thomas” listed as the owner. An address in the US state of Maryland is also provided.
On her LinkedIn profile, Thomas refers to herself as an “Independent Internet Professional”.
Thomas (right) appears to have began promoting MLM opportunities a year ago, with the YouGetPaidFast cash gifting scheme the first appearing on her YouTube channel.
Other opportunities advertised on Thomas’ YouTube channel include Group20Million (recruitment scheme) and DollarMonsters (matrix cycler Ponzi).
Read on for a full review of the 7 Dollar Freedom MLM business opportunity.
The 7 Dollar Freedom Product Line
7 Dollar Freedom has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market 7 Dollar Freedom affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up, 7 Dollar Freedom affiliates pay $1.75 to $52.75 to participate in the MLM income opportunity.
Bundled with these payments are advertising credits and various internet marketing tools.
The 7 Dollar Freedom Compensation Plan
The 7 Dollar Freedom compensation plan sees affiliates purchase $1.75 matrix positions, with these positions then pushed through two 4×4 matrix cyclers.
A 4×4 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with four positions directly under them:
These initial four positions make up the first level of the matrix, with the second level generated by splitting each of the four level 1 positions into another four positions each.
Level 3 of the matrix is generated by splitting level 2 positions, with the fourth and final level generated by splitting level 3 positions. In total there are 340 positions in a 4×4 matrix.
Positions in the matrix are filled via the direct and indirect recruitment of affiliates, with commissions paid out as follows:
- Matrix 1, level 1 (4 positions) – pays $7 when filled
- Matrix 1, level 2 (16 positions) – pays $80 when filled
- Matrix 1, level 3 (64 positions) – pays $640 when filled
- Matrix 1, level 4 (256 positions) – pays $5120 when filled
- Matrix 2, level 1 (4 positions) – pays $1280 when filled
- Matrix 2, level 2 (16 positions) – pays $1392 when filled
- Matrix 2, level 3 (64 positions) – pays $10,240 when filled
- Matrix 4, level 4 (256 positions) – pays $81,920 when filled
Note that 7 Dollar Freedom affiliates don’t directly fund their own positions, with positions instead funded via affiliate recruitment.
These recruitment efforts are tracked via a unilevel compensation structure as follows:
- recruitment of new affiliates = $1.75 funding for Matrix 1, Level 1 and $40 for Matrix 2, Level 1
- level 2 recruitment (affiliates recruited by level 1 affiliates) = $5 funding for Matrix 1, Level 2 and $80 for Matrix 2, Level 2
- level 3 recruitment = $10 for Matrix 1, Level 3 and $160 for Matrix 2, Level 3
- level 4 recruitment = $20 for Matrix 1, Level 4 and $320 for Matrix 2, Level 4
Note that the matrix levels run sequentially, however the funds to buy into Matrix 2 levels are sourced from the same affiliates who funded Level 1.
A second component of the 7 Dollar Freedom compensation plan sees affiliates participate in a three-tier single-level cash gifting scheme as follows:
- pay $7 = qualified to receive $7 from personally recruited affiliates
- pay $17 = qualified to receive $17 gifting payments from personally recruited affiliates
- pay $27 = qualified to receive $27 gifting payments from personally recruited affiliates
Advertising credits are bundled with each of the above gifting payments, which can be used to display advertising on the 7 Dollar Freedom website.
Joining 7 Dollar Freedom
Affiliate membership with 7 Dollar Freedom is free, however affiliates must pay their upline at least $1.75 to participate in the MLM opportunity.
The non-MLM cash gifting side of the business requires $7 to $51 to participate.
Kia Thomas’ 7 Dollar Freedom is a reflection of the schemes she participated in prior to it’s launch, namely that of the Ponzi matrix cycler variety.
The pairing of the basic matrix cycler Ponzi model with that of a unilevel to fund positions was something I hadn’t seen before (and took a while to get my head around), but otherwise it’s the same old “new funds to pay off existing investors” model.
You buy in for $1.75 on the promise of an advertised $99,447. That’s a staggering minimum 56,826 subsequent payments.
And more when you consider not every unilevel payment is going towards a single position.
Just one level deep explodes the required payments on those 56,826 payments to 3.2 billion.
The $7-$27 ad-credit component of the compensation plan meanwhile is straight up cash gifting, you buy in and then receive payments from subsequent participants (who are only buying in to qualify to receive the same).
The products bundled with payments into 7 Dollar Freedom are neither here nor there, serving only to offer a paper-thin veneer of legitimacy to what is otherwise fraud.
First you have the “no refunds” refunds policy:
7DollarFreedom offers a ZERO REFUNDS POLICY to all members.
And secondly there this, taken directly from the 7 Dollar Freedom website, which spells out the mechanics of cash gifting scheme:
All payments go directly to the member’s payment processor, admin does not touch your money!
If products were indeed being paid for, not only would refunds be possible, but payments would be made to the company first from whence commissions would be paid out (and certainly not 100%, otherwise clearly the product/service in question is not being sold, merely bundled to the payment free of charge).
Secondly, affiliates paying affiliates 100% of what they pump into an opportunity = cash gifting. There’s no two ways about it.
As with all cash gifting schemes, once recruitment of new $1.75 suckers dries up, 7 Dollar Freedom will collapse.
