Kao-Ke-Saetern-team-build-income-adminIn 2013 Saetern (right) was an affiliate of Solavei. In 2014 he was promoting True Value Savings, an e-commerce orientated MLM opportunity.

Saetern was also an affiliate of the Four Corners Alliance Group pyramid scheme.

More recently Saetern has gotten involved with Zewang Help and Get Help, both clones of the collapsed MMM Global Ponzi scheme.

Read on for a full review of the Team Build Income MLM opportunity.

The Team Build Income Product Line

Team Build Income has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Team Build Income affiliate membership itself.

Once signed up, Team Build Income affiliates must gift $35 to the affiliate who recruited them.

In addition to qualifying them to earn via the Team Build Income income opportunity, the affiliate also receives access to “high quality products”.

The Team Build Income Compensation Plan

Team Build Income affiliates gift $35 to the affiliate who recruited them, which in turn qualifies them to start receiving gifting payments from subsequently recruited affiliates.

Payments within Team Build Income are tracked via a 3×5 matrix.

A 3×5 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with three positions directly under them:


These initial three positions form the first level of the matrix, with the second level generated by splitting each of the three positions into another three positions each.

Subsequent levels of the matrix are generated as required, down a maximum of five levels.

A complete 3×5 matrix houses 363 positions. Positions are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of new Team Build Income affiliates.

The $30 gifting payment runs across the first level of the 3×5 matrix, with the second to fifth levels serving as addition gifting tiers as follows:

  • level 1 (must gift $35 to the affiliate who recruited you) – receive three $35 gifting payments
  • level 2 (must gift $50 to another affiliate) – receive nine $50 gifting payments)
  • level 3 (must gift $300 to another affiliate) – receive twenty-seven $300 gifting payments)
  • level 4 (must gift $600 to another affiliate) – receive eighty-one $600 gifting payments
  • level 5 – (must gift $900 to another affiliate) – receive two hundred and forty-three gifting payments

Joining Team Build Income

Affiliate membership with Team Build Income is tied to a $35 gifting payment.


Through his involvement in Zewang Help, Get Help and who knows what else, Kao Ke Saetern appears to have been bitten by the cash gifting bug.

Team Build Income sees affiliates gift $35 to the affiliate who recruited them. The rest of the compensation plan is pretty much receiving gifting payments from other Team Build Income affiliates, using some of those to gift even larger amounts and receiving larger gifting amounts in kind.

Totally illegal and totally a scam.

As with all gifting schemes, once recruitment of new Team Build Income affiliates dies off so too will gifting payments within the scheme.

Eventually recruitment drops off to the point that gifting payments are no longer being made, at which point Team Build Income collapses.

Sitting at the top of the company-wide matrix will be one or more preloaded positions held by Saetern. These positions receive the lion’s share of passed up funds, ensuring Saetern receives most of the money gifted into Team Build Income.

Other than a few other early adopters, everybody else loses out.
