Freedom Dollar Review: 3×4 matrix cash gifting
Freedom Dollar provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.
Of note is the Freedom Dollar website is hosted on the Trinity Funnel System website. The Trinity Funnel System website domain was privately registered on February 21st, 2017.
Trinity Funnel System appears to be a traffic exchange. Given Freedom Dollar appears to be running off the website domain itself, it seems whoever owns Trinity Funnel System likely also owns Freedom Dollar.
Other than claiming to be part of Trinity Marketing Group, who owns Trinity Funnel System is not disclosed on the company website.
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.
Freedom Dollar Products
Freedom Dollars has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Freedom Dollar affiliate membership itself.
The Freedom Dollar Compensation Plan
Freedom Dollar affiliates gift money to each other via a 3×4 matrix.
A 3×4 matrix places a Freedom Dollar affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them (level 1):
These three positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first three positions into another three positions each (9 positions).
Levels three and four of the matrix are generated in the same manner and house 27 and 81 positions respectively.
A Freedom Dollar affiliate signs up and gifts $1 to an existing Freedom Dollar affiliate.
This payment in turn qualifies the affiliate to receive three $1 gifting payments on the first level of their matrix.
These payments are received from directly or indirectly recruited affiliates.
Unlocking level 2 of the matrix costs $3, which then qualifies the affiliate to receive $3 from nine affiliates.
Gifting payments across all four levels of the Freedom Dollar matrix are as follows:
- level 1 – gift $1 and receive $1 from three affiliates
- level 2 – gift $3 and receive $3 from nine affiliates
- level 3 – gift $15 and receive $15 from twenty-seven affiliates
- level 4 – gift $317 and receive $317 from eighty-one affiliates
Note that gifting payments within Freedom Dollar are monthly recurring (both paid and received).
Joining Freedom Dollar
Freedom Dollar affiliate membership is tied to a $1 gifting payment.
Freedom Dollar markets nothing to retail customers and instead opts for an illegal cash gifting business model.
Payments are made between affiliates, with most of the money deposited funneling up to the anonymous Freedom Dollar admin.
This happens by way of one or more preloaded admin positions, which recapture 77% of gifted funds across levels one to three of each affiliate’s matrix.
Level 4 is dangled as a final payment, however regular affiliates aren’t going to see payoffs on this level until the admin’s preloaded positions have paid out.
There is a NO REFUND POLICY on ANY and ALL purchases involved with our program.
As with all cash gifting schemes, once affiliate recruitment slows down so too will new gifting payments.
This will see Freedom Dollar stall and then eventually collapse.
The math behind a gifting scheme sees the admin and perhaps a few early adopters make off with most of the deposited funds, leaving the majority of affiliates with an eventual loss.
So, man…you are telling everyone that there is no real matrix or mlm businesses?
So, you are telling everyone by posting articles like this, that there is only JOBs where you can get money from?
Everytime I see an interesting proposition of business, even starting with a miserable $1 dollar, I come here and I read your comments, just to bring down anybody who wants truely become financially free.
Man, you picture the worst scenario for every business there is, let alone: Selling products and jobs.
While there are real MLM businesses, they are vastly outnumbered by the frauds claiming the MLM model as a cover for illegal activities.
Matrices, on the other hand, are entirely illegal Roger. Please read this link and see why that $1 can result in a criminal record for you:
The notion of becoming “financially free” is what pulls huge amounts of people into these scams.
Too bad that’s what they really are, scams designed to profit the few at the top at the expense of everyone else.
Matrix is just a fancy name for pyramid scheme, just as “forced matrix” is a fancy name for pyramid.
MLM businesses can be “real”, but given the US national average SALES (not profit) per person is less than two thousand dollars PER YEAR, you’re unlikely to earn ANY money from it, since you’ll definitely below average when you start, no matter how hard you try.
And who’s the say you can tell the difference from a “real” MLM, vs. a pyramid scheme that claimed to be MLM, when even Vemma and Herbalife can be forced by FTC to institute reforms or closed down (at least temporarily), as they are among the most famous of MLM companies?
That’s more a reflection of the types of business you’re attracted to then the facts in my reviews.
Stop looking up scams and stealing people’s money.
Hello Site Owner,
I enjoy reading your blog and have done so for many many years now.
Turns out, I’m the owner of the site you have reviewed.
I’d like to point out a few things you have not reviewed properly. How about, let’s do a proper review, because you have a lot of things wrong here.
Yet you didn’t point out anything.
Freedom Dollar is a cash gifting matrix scam, dime-a-dozen and nothing unique. What’s to miss?
aaaaaand still waiting.
Was waiting for the admin of this site to email me back… He’She does have my email address.
Also, if you’ve bothered to even join… my direct email address is the first thing you see… So much for “we don’t know who owns this site”.
So let’s get real here… Admin, when you have some time, email me and I’ll explain how everything works. Also, this is 100% commissions to the members.
sorry, doesn’t exist here, unless of course I’ve done my own marketing and gained my own signups.
With 100% ccmmission paid to the member, who refers someone… meedless to say, i don’t see how the “admin” has… Pre-loaded positions.
Care to explain?
Thankyou for confirming you’re full of shit.
Can’t explain why Freedom Dollar isn’t a cash gifting scam in public here? Not going to waste my time, nor that of my readers.
Yep, otherwise known as cash gifting.
If I have to join an MLM company to see who’s running it, that company is run ass-backwards. You hiding who owns Freedom Dollar from the general public isn’t any less factual.
If you were only running a single-level gifting scheme sure. But you’re not. So don’t be disingenuous.
Your preloaded admin positions fill first on every matrix level. Most of the money gifted in is funneled to the top matrix levels.
Ergo nobody makes any substantial money until you, as the Freedom Dollar admin, have made off with most of the money before recruitment collapses.
(Ozedit: If you can’t explain why Freedom Dollar isn’t a cash gifting scam, we’re done here.)
I don’t need to interview you to confirm Freedom Dollar is a gifting scam.
Your comp plan is public and it reveals your business model entirely.
There are no admin positions at all.
secondly, I’m not putting my direct email address on the outside of the site, i will however put a general support contact on the outside of the site.
You do know that scrapers exist to scrape email adresses from websites..?
Yep, let me put mine there and receive never ending spam, lol.
Same holds true for domain registration, there are “software as a service” that people/hackers can get to scrape the contact info off of domains… Don’t you all know this already?
Look, I expect scammers to lie but can you be a little less blase about it?
You just stated “I’ve done my own marketing and gained my own signups.” For you to sign someone up and steal their money you need an admin position.
You’re (so you claim) the Freedom Dollar admin. Any positions you own and/or control are admin positions.
Who said anything about your email address? No idea what you’re crapping on about now…
I do enjoy your site very much, it has kept me very informed over the years.
Is my site a gifting site, No.. We sell online advertising, as explained on the front page of the site. instead of the company collecting the money, the members collect the money 100%.
Also, I SAID… “unless of course I have done my own marketing”… which I have not.
Affiliates paying affiliates in MLM = cash gifting.
What you bundle with gifting payments doesn’t matter.
Cool. But with admin positions you don’t need to market anything other than the opportunity itself. Your preloaded position/s receive most of the money as they’re preloaded into the system before launch.
This isn’t a new business model and you’re not some sort of maverick. This is cookie-cutter matrix gifting 101.
Then you’re not selling anything chief.
boss, this steve hunter guy is not a Seller, he’s a bigtime Gifter.
he gifts online advertising, he gifts cash, he’s gifting his whole life for his poor affiliates whom he converts to gifters too! he’s like literally mother teresa in disguise.
You seem so convinced that there are “pre-loaded” positions, ok… so if you joined and referred fred, and fred paid his 1 dollar a month, you receive his 1 dollar per month for each month fred stays active. Care to explain where the pre-loaded position is..? Good Grief.
Internet Marketers make money on the backend by first; building reputation and then offering related products/services as an affiliate marketer.
First, I own a traffic exchange, secondly I affiliate through Clickbank, JvZoo, The Warrior Forum.. etc. I’m sure you are aware there are plenty of successful affiliate marketers on those networks I just mentioned.
This is no “get rich quick” site. Members receive advertising, can also promote to all of the members on the site, and in return can make some passive money over time, just saying.
I’m not the admin, so who cares?
Affiliates paying affiliates in MLM = cash gifting. It’s really that simple.
Steve… how do you ensure that the ads are for actual products & services?
I seem to recall something called Ad Surf Daily that was bitten hard by that particular issue when the authorities came calling.
Except it never really works that way. There’s a couple “pass-ups” you usually forget to mention. The admins have to make $$$ after all.
The site has no “pass up” feature.
Of course there is – as you being the admin would never get paid.
Surely having a site where everyone gets paid and the admin gets nothing would be rediculous?
You are fooling no one here!
The two are contradictory. The admin has to be making $$$ somewhere. It’s either pass-up, or hidden preloaded positions. Or the whole thing is a scam. Which was it? Tsk tsk tsk. Your logic doesn’t fit with your words.
Most of the funds deposited in a matrix gifting scheme are passed up to the upper levels of the matrix… where preloaded admin positions are waiting to receive them.
Hello Terrence B, Kasey Chang & OZ.
As I have said, There are no “pass ups”, There are no pre-loaded admin positions either.
As an example, let’s say you joined the site and referred toby. Toby then pays his $1 dollar a month, being that you referred Toby, You receive Toby’s $1 dollar a month, for as long as Toby stays a member. We have a current launch special where a member can pay for 6 months, and receive the next 6 months paid for by the site.
You all can try to dissect this anyway you want, there are no passups and no preloaded admin positions. Care to explain where they are?
Also, If you have bothered to read what I wrote in comment # 21, you can see how Internet Marketers make money. (Ozedit: Offtopic derail attempts removed)
Having said all of that… Open your eyes… I have already stated this in my comment #21. So, through freedom dollar, Everyone makes money, then on the back end and followup marketing efforts, I then make money. However, that is all not going to happen if I am not here to protect and serve my customers.
Before I end this comment, I just wanted to say to OZ, I enjoy reading your blog, its very informative and I have learned so much and you have opened my eyes to so much over the years, I thank you for that and I appreciate what it is that you do for everyone.
You can have your opinion, that is your free liberty to do so, that doesn’t mean we both need to agree, we can agree simply to disagree.
You all want to say “pass ups” and preloaded admin positions, I can tell ya that’s not the case. This site makes me no money at all, The investment in the hosting & customer service is well worth the potential of the money to be made on the back end and continued marketing.
What it does provide is a growing membership of customers that, when treated the right way, will continue to get involved in whatever it is we decide to pursue in the future. 🙂 We are all at liberty to make our own choices.
My many subscribers can stay or go, they have a choice to delete their account, unsubscribe, what the case may be. On that note, I rest my case.
Also, if anyone is interested (Ozedit: Offtopic derail attempt removed)
I do not see an answer to my question, Steve.
And as I have said, it makes no sense. You really have no evidence other than “why don’t you trust me?” which is not evidence, merely your opinion not backed up by facts or logic.
So where does FD come on, and where does your money that you put in go? It’s completely unrelated to selling stuff. Listen to yourself. Tsk tsk tsk.
You the admin that joins your own site. So you saying you paying yourself?
So if EVERYONE PAYS 100% to each other You run a whole site for free?
Yeah as I said before – You have positions in the system that you get paid from OR – you are randomly getting paid commissions by STEALING from your own members by swapping ID of the member with your own.
Either way the point is – No one owns a site just so all the members pay each other and the admin EARNS ZERO.
You are fooling no one.
You didn’t start this site just to earn zero so everyone can get paid but you. USE any example you want – you will only look foolish.
So you will pay hosting forever to the site just because you are a nice guy? Because you don’t want to earn at all?
There is always some sort of payment that will default to the admin.
I am sure you made it up in your mind that you think we can’t see how it all works.
You are in FD as an admin for the profits of getting payments sent to you. You are not doing anyone and favors or great charity of service.
Pay 6 months to who? – a member or to you?
Is the minimum payout amount $5?
Every gifting matrix passes up funds to the upper tiers. And preloaded admin positions are created when you fire up the script.
The fact is you collect the majority of deposited funds with your admin position(s) in the upper matrix tiers. Every matrix gifting scam is the same.
Math is math. Money goes into Freedom Dollar and goes into your pocket.
You can disagree with math but you’ll just come off looking like an idiot.
Regardless, you’re still taking in the majority of deposited funds in the upper matrix tiers through your admin position(s).
Right. But the consequences of choosing to scam people in an illegal cash gifting scheme should not be understated.
And stop waffling on about internet marketing. A matrix gifting scam has nothing to do with non-MLM internet marketing.
Terrance B. – Thank you for not even bothering to read what I wrote in comment #29. I have no idea what it is that you are saying.
Like I said, if you joined, then referred bob, you receive bob’s 1 dollar a month, for as long as bob remains a member. Also, you can see your entire downline of everyone you referred, wouldn’t you notice if people went missing.. good grief.
I suggest you go back and take another hit from the bong, because what you said makes absolutely no sense. Please read what I wrote in comment # 29. If it makes no sense to you, then please do not continue to comment nonsense.
Yu Blueit – We do out best to weed out advertising that is not good. Every single advertisement is checked, We are in the ‘work at home’ niche and also traffic exchange/ viral list mailer exchange.
A majority of advertisements will be within these niches, of course we’ll state that members please do their own due diligence when it comes to joining anything. Also, Ad surf Daily was taken down and the owner prosecuted for running a ponzi, just like traffic monsoon is going to face.
We’re not paying any kind of returns for advertising or doing any kind of rev share.
Also, not all mlm / matrix is illegal, there are countless hundreds of companies that are mlm based, even president trump had a network marketing company… So please, save your breathe, I believe we’ve all been around the block plenty of times to understand these things, herbalife, melauca ( or whatever the &*ck that is ) mary kay, tupperware, etc..etc..etc..etc…etc…
$1 dollar a month is not fleecing people out of countless thousands, like exitus or MOBE, Primerica ( LOL ).. or any company that has forced monthly product purchases… good grief, jesus christ all mighty.
Kasey Chang – please re-read comment #29. and if for the life of you, you can not understand what a front end funded proposal is, then remove yourself from behind the keyboard and get in a bath with a toaster.
I have explained simply, Internet Marketers make all of their money on the backend, I have said that I am an affiliate marketer with clickbank and jvzoo and more, so offering related products/services that people can purchase if they chose to do so, comes with a commission earned on the sale.
so… let’s say the membership of the site grows to 10K, i’m thinking… now if I’m using my noodle here… I believe that would be 10K people to send an offer to.. ? right? yeah, I think that is right…?
hmmm, wait no.. ummm, 10K people join my site… then I send an email offer to them… yeah, that would be to 10K people… then if a number of them make a purchase, I would make a commission… … hmmm…?
umm yeah I do believe the logic behind that does compute to making 100% sense… hmmm, send a related offer/product/service to the members… some purchase said offer/product/service… I make commission on that sale… would be neat to if the offer/product/service was residual, meaning it paid monthly.
Now if that doesn’t compute to you in the slightest… then by all means remove yourself from behind the keyboard and snip your nipples off with nail clippers. You have great comments on all of the other posts here on this site, so I do believe there is a logical brain inside your head, lets not be stupid and pretend you don’t understand what marketing is and what follow up marketing is.
Like receiving that dental reminder post card about your next cleaning… Jesus H. Christ.
Yo – yes the minimum is $5.00, so if you had 5 referrals, you can cash out, or if you had 3, just wait till the next month and cash out $6.00 or whatever you wanted to do.
OZ – this is not a ‘script’, The site was created from scratch. There are no admin positions. Lets say, you joined and then referred Jacques Cough, You receive $1 dollar each month for as long as your referral stays a member.
So, if the site cost is $1 dollar a month, and you receive that whole $1 dollar a month, then where on earth is the ‘pre-loaded’ ‘admin’ positions..???
You receive everything 100% from your referrals, no matter what level they get to each month, you receive all of the earnings, nothing is passed up, down, sideways. AND you don’t lose out if one of your referrals is moving up the levels faster then you… You still get those earnings, it is not passed up to the next person.
You can try to dissect this any way you want, AS YOU CAN PLAINLY SEE AND UNDERSTAND, THIS IS MEMBER TO MEMBER. Nothing goes anywhere, not up, not down, not sideways, like other sites do. Good Grief.
This is the last time I am explaining that. Join the site and refer a paying member, let me know if what he/she pays your not receiving, let me know if he/she moves up the levels higher then you, you don’t receive the earnings… Good Grief.
Stay focused on what is that you do best, post great articles about sites and companies that are severely hurting/manipulating/robbing their members/customers… Like traffic monsoon or telefax, onecoin and others, all of which has taken countless thousands from each one of their members.
So you are trying to say they can earn because all the members are in your mailing list for your offers to earn?
Sounds EXACTLY like what everyone here has been saying the whole while.
You are earning from them – I stand by my position that you have your own positions taking $1 payments here and there.
Bottom line this is nothing new. You can present them with other so called ponzi schemes for them to join so that you are the first and they follow you in.
In “building” your so called list of members paying members its always something in it for you.
Once people see the “member to member” payments dry up so will your scheme no matter how many offers you present to them.
Which is why I will say again – You have positions in the system they pay you directly on.
These member to member scripts can be bought and dressed up for next to nothing.
I am sure once this dies you will just relaunch it with a new name and start the scam again.
You start just like you will finish – with nothing.
You are offering nothing product wise so how long do you think this scam will last you or anyone that joins?
Created by who?
What “you” (affiliates) do is irrelevant. Your positions will be inserted into the matrix first (preloaded) and you are the admin. That makes your position(s) admin position(s).
Yup, cash gifting. Totally illegal the world over. Not my fault your dumbass continues to insist otherwise.
Terrence – as an affiliate marketer of clickbank / JvZoo etc..etc.. I do not recall those affiliate networks offering ponzi schemes.
How come you are not reading what it is that I am saying. Do you know what a Funded Proposal is?
How about the Internet Marketer that I gave as an example, paying 100% commissions to JV partners on the front end for selling that person product/service…? ( that is not cash gifting ) Then that Internet Marketer makes the money on the back end by offering related products/services, and by his members/customers continuing to purchase more products/services in the future, having the opportunity the entire time to simply ‘unsubscribe’ from that marketers list.
Also, if you join the site, and then refer Jamal, you receive Jamal’s $1 dollar for each month he remains a member… SO AGAIN, WHERE ON EARTH IS THE PRE-LOADED ADMIN POSITIONS?
You refer Jamal, you receive 100% of Jamal’s payment. What is it that you fail to comprehend? Nothing is passed up, down or sideways. You are just completely retarded for not reading what it is that I have wrote.
Also, if you bothered to read the site, you would see what the product is.
OZ – This is not a script at all, the site was created by scratch.
as I just explained to Terrence B. if you joined the site and then referred Dorothy, Dorothy pays $1 Dollar a month for Internet Advertising, You receive Dorothy’s $1 Dollar a month for as long as she remains an active member. There are no pass ups whatsoever.
SO, What matrix are you talking about exactly..?
…Who owns the downline of people who quit?
…What happens to all the money left in the system when people quit or didn’t earn enough to make the minimum withdrawal?
It’s a PHP matrix opportunity. Of course it runs on a script.
What I or anyone else who isn’t the admin does is irrelevant. You have positions and those positions are admin positions.
The matrix in your compensation plan. Each level passed up more money into your pocket (preloaded positions).
Yo – no one owns the downline of people who quit. If you log into your account, had referred 10 people and 2 quit, those people are still in your downline, with contact info. Your free to communicate with your downline, teach them things, tell them about any other venture your in, etc..
The site offers advertising as a product/service. Members pay $1 dollar a month for this, However, the person who referred the member receives 100% commission on the sale. They can use those earnings to then purchase the next levels and receive even more advertising.
If a member joined, referred two members who paid, that person would receive 2 dollars that month in earnings. The next month, that person would receive the same amount. We are currently offering a special that when members purchase 6 months, they get the next 6 months paid for by the company.
Almost all members are coming in on the special offer. If that member never did anything ever again… each month that person would receive the same 2 dollars for 12 months. I would have to say, that person would eventually reach the withdrawal amount.
OZ – I think I may have just confused the expert of all programs… Like I said, if you referred someone, and they pay each month and they pay for each additional level, you receive all of that 100%… What on earth is being passed up into my pocket if its going into your pocket.
WOW, its not this hard to understand, Which is why I said in the beginning, how about we do a proper review.
My site is kind of like Leased Ad Space, but a hundred times better. Once because no matter what level you are on, you still receive earnings from your referrals who move up higher then you… meaning, you lose nothing 🙂
If you can not understand how nothing is passed up, down or sideways, then let’s stop going back and forth repeating the same exact things over and over again.
Oh for fucks sake. One more comment about what anyone except you, the admin, can do and spambin.
Freedom Dollar is an illegal cash gifting scam and you’re not fooling anyone with your waffle nonsense.
If you don’t understand your own multi-level pass-up gifting scam matrix compensation plan, not my problem. But seriously, drop the act.
It is not an illegal cash gifting scam, secondly, nothing is pass up multiple levels, i just said.
How it works is as follows: a member joins; his name is Fred. Fred refers a member under him, his name is Bob. Bob pays $1 dollar a month. Fred receives that $1 Dollar a month.
When Bob pays the other level amounts, Fred receives the other level amounts, no matter what level Fred is on.
I can’t for the life of me see how anything is being passed up. Care to explain?
Steve… by your own words you have proven this system to be illegal.
Read what the Attorney General of North Carolina said: ncdoj.com/Consumer/Investment-Work-and-Money-Making-Schemes/Pyramid-Schemes.aspx
Steve, what happens to all the dollars that are left in peoples accounts that never get to the 5 dollar amount????
As we have said more than once anyone that comes to the site without a referral link will PAY YOU by default.
Plus with all these levels and people not making the minimum withdrawal That will go to you again by Default.
As you have multiple levels – again I am sure you have default accounts that will get paid.
Futhermore iF you are dead set on promoting other offers – why not just present them to all that come to the site without the gifting and use your own Affiliate link?
Want to know why? – Because you make more money from the GIFTING.
All the money sits in your account before anyone makes any type of withdrawal period.
Else you could just pay any and everyone without holding their money – since you say its not yours – why are you holding it at all.
You are just leveraging the work of all the members to fill your account with funds.
You can always make it free and see how many join your affilate links you provide them all to join. We know how that will work out.
@Steve This is the last time I’m going to explain your own compensation plan to you.
Your preloaded admin positions sit at the top of the company-wide matrix. When you launch Freedom Dollar everyone who initially signs up is placed under you.
Your positions quickly cycle into the upper tiers of the matrix.
Each matrix level sees larger and larger funds gifted up to your positions, resulting in the majority of deposited funds going to you (the admin).
Affiliates can receive gifting payments if recruitment continues beyond your own positions being fully paid out on all matrix levels, but this is unlikely given how quickly matrix gifting scams collapse these days.
Bitcoin gifting exploded earlier this year and ruined the niche. You’re late to the party.
