Leads2Traffic Review: Traffic Monsoon Ponzi reboot scheme
There is no information on the Leads2Traffic website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Leads2Traffic website domain (“leads2traffic.com”) was registered on the 30th of January 2016, however the domain registration is set to private.
The official Leads2Traffic Facebook group lists one admin, Connie Burnell.
Burnell’s own Facebook profile lists his location as France and is plastered with marketing material for Traffic Monsoon:
Traffic Monsoon is a Ponzi scheme shut down by the SEC in late July.
On August 28th, Burnell posted to Facebook;
After thinking and planing (sic) of many months i am going to officially launch my own long term Revshare website..
link will be available in few hours.
How much money Burnell lost or made in Traffic Monsoon is unclear.
Read on for a full review of the Leads2Traffic MLM opportunity.
The Leads2Traffic Product Line
Leads2Traffic has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Leads2Traffic affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up, Leads2Traffic affiliates invest $2.50 to participate in the attached income opportunity.
Bundled with each investment are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the Leads2Traffic website.
The Leads2Traffic Compensation Plan
Leads2Traffic affiliates invest $2.50 on the promise of an advertised 125% ROI (~$3.12).
Referral commissions are available on funds invested by recruited affiliates, paid out via a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
Leads2Traffic cap payable unilevel levels at six, with commissions paid out as a percentage of funds invested as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 7%
- level 2 – 3%
- level 3 – 2%
- levels 4 to 6 – 1%
Leads2Traffic affiliate membership is free, however affiliates must invest at least $2.50 to participate in the attached MLM opportunity.
In a nutshell, Leads2Traffic is Connie Burnell’s attempt to capture some of the void left in Traffic Monsoon’s wake.
The reality is that a Ponzi scheme by any other name is still just a Ponzi scheme.
Under the guise of selling advertising, Leads2Traffic solicit $2 investments on the promise of a 125% ROI.
The ROI is paid out of subsequently invested funds, making Leads2Traffic a Ponzi scheme.
Despite the obvious fraudulent nature of the business, Leads2Traffic feign legitimacy based on outdated pseudo-compliance:
Is leads2traffic legal?
YES it is legal. In order for any program to be legal, it is required to supply a service and/or product to you, the member!
As Charles Scoville recently found out, whatever you attach to a Ponzi scheme business model is irrelevant.
As with all Ponzi schemes, once recruitment of new Leads2Traffic affiliates dies down so too will new funds entering the scheme.
This will see Leads2Traffic unable to meet its hourly ROI obligations, at which point the scheme will collapse.
In order for Connie Burnell and a few early adopters to get paid, the majority of Leads2Traffic affiliates must lose money.
