Paid Per Letter Review: $199 and then $25 a month pyramid
Paid Per Letter fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.
Paid Per Letter operates from at least three known website domains:
- paidperletter.com – privately registered on December 13th, 2023
- paidperletters.com – privately registered on December 14th, 2023
- getpaidperletter.com – privately registered on December 27th, 2023
Further research reveals Dustin Mansell citing himself as Paid Per Letter’s CEO.
Dustin Mansell is a Nevada resident and serial promoter of fraudulent MLM opportunities.
Mansell first appeared on BehindMLM’s radar in late 2022, as owner of Matrix Empire.
Matrix Empire was a pyramid scheme that fed into other pyramid schemes Mansell was promoting at the time.
We came across Mansell again in early 2023, this time as owner of Text ALN. Text ALN is another collapsed MLM pyramid scheme.
Instead of fronting Paid Per Letter and disclosing his involvement, Mansell hides behind AI robodubbed marketing videos.
Paid Per Letter’s website also contains testimonials from fictitious people represented by AI-generated profile photos.
Someone else to note in the marketing video screenshot above is “inventor Lisa Kryml”.
On FaceBook Kryml cites herself as a California resident and owner and CEO of Paid Per Letter.
Not sure how both Kryml and Mansell can be Paid Per Letter CEOs but sure.
As far as I can tell Kryml doesn’t have a verifiable MLM history. She seems to be behind Paid Per Letter’s bundled course.
Finally if we look in Paid Per Letter’s website source-code, we find a reference to Web Marketing Tool.
On its website Web Marketing Tool sells membership websites for $275 and then $25 a month.
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.

A 3×10 matrix places an affiliates at the top of a matrix, with three positions directly under them:
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 (nine positions).
Levels three to ten of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with each new level housing three times as many positions as the previous level.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of Paid Per Letter affiliates.
A 50 cent monthly residual commission is paid per affiliate recruited into the matrix who continues to pay $25 a month.
Joining Paid Per Letter
Paid Per Letter affiliate membership is $199 plus $25 a month.
Paid Per Letter Conclusion
There’s not too much to Paid Per Letter as an MLM opportunity. It’s a simple pyramid scheme which, as per the FTC Act, is an illegal business model.
This is hardly surprising given Dustin Mansell’s MLM history.
Attached to Paid Per Letter’s pyramid scheme is some waffle about “mak[ing] money from home through hand written letters!”
Our course teaches you how to start earning up to $50-$75+/per hour by writing letters to select large businesses! All from the comfort of your home.
Specific details aren’t provided and, within the context of due-diligence into Paid Per Letter as an MLM opportunity, are irrelevant.
Adding a non-retailable product or service to an MLM pyramid scheme doesn’t make it any less of a pyramid scheme.
That said, in the screenshot cited The Satoshi Show marketing video in the introduction of this review, Lisa Kryml mentions “writing for sweepstakes”.
From what I can tell, this has something to do with writing to third-party companies and receiving ~$5 credits. Said credit then have to be “played” in order to actually make any money.
It’s also worth noting that, in addition to Paid Per Letter’s business model being illegal, failing to provide consumers with detailed information about the bundled course could potentially be another violation of the FTC Act (disclosure failures).
As with all MLM pyramid schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will commissions.
This will see those at the bottom of Paid Per Letter’s company-wide matrix stop paying $25 a month. This will in turn see those above them stop getting paid.
Unless new suckers are found to replace those who stop paying $25 a month, eventually an irreversible collapse is triggered.
