7 Levels Private Leveraging Community Review: 7-tier Ponzi
Details on 7 Levels Private Leveraging Community (abbreviated as 7Levels PLC) are sketchy.
From what I’ve been able to put together, the scheme operates without a website – however the backend matrix is obviously tracked via a script.
7Levels PLC affiliates recruit new investors via Google Forms, which are then fed to the owner(s) of the scheme, with communication tracked via a private Facebook group.
New affiliates are required to submit their Facebook accounts in these forms, which are them presumably vetted by those running the scheme.
In essence, 7 Levels PLC functions as scheme being run through Facebook – but by who is not clear.
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 7 Levels Private Leveraging Community Product Line
7 Levels PLC has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership to the company itself.
The 7 Levels Private Leveraging Community Compensation Plan
The 7 Levels Private Leveraging Community compensation plan sees affiliates invest in $10 4×1 matrix positions.
A 4×1 matrix required four positions to be filled before a commission is paid out, with there being seven of these matrices in the 7 Levels PLC compensation plan.
Each of the seven 4×1 matrices pay out as follows:
- level 1 (positions cost $10) – pays out $15 and cycles into level 2
- level 2 – pays out $50 and cycles into level 3
- level 3 – pays out $100 and cycles into level 4
- level 4 – pays out $150 and cycles into level 5
- level 5 – pays out $500 and cycles into level 6
- level 6 – pays out $750 and cycles into level 7
- level 7 – pays out $5000 and cycles back into level 6
Joining 7 Levels Private Leverage Community
Affiliate membership with 7 Levels Private Leverage Community is free, however affiliates must invest in at least one matrix position in order to participate in the income opportunity.
As such, the defacto minimum cost of 7 Levels PLC is $10 (the cost of one matrix position).
The lack of information about 7 Levels Private Leverage Community, when weighed against their compensation plan reeks of suspicion.
This would appear to be a calculated effort to fly under the radar, by means of attempting to keep the running of the scheme in a private Facebook group.
Unfortunately that’s counter to what a Ponzi scheme needs, that being a constant injection of new funds.
In 7 Levels Private Leverage Community these funds are pumped into the scheme by way of $10 matrix purchases.
These funds are used to pay off existing investors, by way of a “four payments in, one payment out” framework.
This is true of every one of 7 Levels PLC’s seven-tiers, with each simply paying out a fraction of the four payments required to cycle, until the final seventh-tier is reached.
One $10 position alone requires an additional 6565 positions to be invested in it is to cycle through all seven tiers. Those positions in turn require 43 million positions to be invested in, and that’s only two generations of payments once one position has cycled.
By design, 7 Levels PLC will see those who got in early hit the seventh tier, and then recycle back into the 6th tier over and over again.
Payments at these two levels dwarf that of the lower five tiers, meaning as usual earlier investors (read: those running the scheme) will withdraw the majority of funds invested.
By time the time later investors get anywhere near the upper tiers, 7 Levels PLC will have collapsed.
This is guaranteed due to the mathematical impossibility of paying out more than you take in, and that after cycling once, seventh tier positions become phantom positions that drain the system without injecting any new funds into the scheme.
Being a cycler-based program, matrix payouts will at first take longer and longer once new investment dries up, before ultimately stalling altogether.
At this point 7 Levels PLC will have irreversible collapsed, with the majority of participants having lost however much they invested in matrix positions.
