PM InstantProfits Review: $50 in, $75 out Ponzi scheme
There is no information on the PM InstantProfits website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The PM InstantProfits website domain (“pm-instantprofits.com”) was registered on the 26th of December 2015, however the domain registration is set to private.
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 PM InstantProfits Product Line
PM InstantProfits has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market PM InstantProfits affiliate membership itself.
The PM InstantProfits Compensation Plan
The PM InstantProfits compensation plan sees affiliates invest $50 on the promise of an advertised $75 ROI.
Referral commissions on funds invested by recruited members are paid out down three levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 10%
- level 2 – 1%
- level 3 – 4%
Shares in “Elite Member” pools are also available, with affiliates able to qualify for shares in three pools based on how many $50 investments they’ve made.
Shares in up to 6% of PM InstantProfits’ company-wide investment revenue are available, subject to the following qualification criteria
- Pool 1 (1% of company-wide investment volume) – make one hundred $50 investments
- Pool 2 (2% of company-wide investment volume) – make five hundred $50 investments
- Pool 3 (3% of company-wide investment volume) – make one thousand $50 investments
Shares in the Elite Member pools are paid out weekly, with affiliates retaining shares in lesser pools (one thousand investments sees an affiliate earn a share in all three pools).
Joining PM InstantProfits
Affiliate membership with PM InstantProfits is free, however affiliates must invest at least $50 to participate in the income opportunity.
With nothing being marketed to or sold to retail customers, it’s obvious that PM InstantProfits are using newly invested affiliate funds to pay off existing investors.
For further clarification, one need only look at PM InstantProfits’ “no refunds” refund policy:
All purchases are NONREFUNDABLE.
We share the revenue from your purchase with all members, so we cannot afford to offer refunds.
The “sharing” of newly invested funds with existing identifies PM InstantProfits as a Ponzi scheme.
Advertised $75 ROIs are paid out only as long as newly invested funds continue to enter the scheme. As new affiliate recruitment dies down so too do newly invested funds, leaving PM InstantProfits unable to cover its advertised ROI liabilities.
What happens then?
These terms and conditions may change from time to time. If such changes are made, they will be effective immediately. We will notify you by a notice posted in the news section of our website’s home page of the changes that have been made.
If you disagree with any of the changes that have been made, you should not use our website.
We may terminate these terms and conditions of use for any reason and at any time without notice to you.
The scheme collapses, with the anonymous PM InstantProfits admin doing a runner. That’s on top of preloaded positions the admin created, ensuring that, through the scheme itself, they receive the lion’s share of invested funds.
At the time of collapse, anyone who hasn’t ripped off subsequent PM InstantProfits investors loses out. Due to the math behind Ponzi schemes, this is guaranteed to be the majority of PM InstantProfits affiliates.
