The 7 Sites Review: Mike Peever scam downline feeder
The 7 Sites website identifies Mike Peever as the owner and operator of the company.
Peever is based out of Ontario, Canada and is a long-time inhabitant of the MLM underbelly.
Peever first popped up on BehindMLM’s radar in 2012 as the admin of Cash Club International, a six-tier matrix Ponzi cycler.
In 2013 Peever launched The Last Cycler, a $10 Ponzi pyramid hybrid.
Peever was also an investor in the Zeek Rewards Ponzi scheme.
Earlier this year in February Peever launched The F15teen, another matrix Ponzi cycler. Alexa traffic estimates suggest The F15teen collapsed in mid-May.
Read on for a full review of The 7 Sites MLM opportunity.
The 7 Sites Product Line
The 7 Sites has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market The 7 Sites affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up, The 7 Sites affiliates are able to purchase a matrix position subscription.
Bundled with this subscription are ad credits, which can be used to display advertising credits on The 7 Sites website.
The 7 Sites Compensation Plan
The 7 Sites compensation plan sees affiliates purchase a $7.77 monthly 2×10 matrix position subscription.
Commissions are paid out when they recruit others who do the same.
Direct Recruitment Commissions
The 7 Sites affiliates earn $1.25 a month per paid affiliate they recruit.
Residual Recruitment Commissions
Residual recruitment commissions in The 7 Sites are paid out via a 2×10 matrix.
A 2×10 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them:
These two positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting each of the two positions into another two positions each.
Subsequent levels of the matrix are generated in the same manner (up to level 10), with a complete 2×10 matrix housing 2046 positions.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of new The 7 Sites affiliates.
Commissions are paid out as positions in the matrix are filled as follows:
- levels 1 and 2 – 40 cents per position filled
- level 3 – 30 cents per position filled
- levels 4 – 40 cents per position filled
- levels 5 and 6 – 30 cents per position filled
- levels 7 to 10 – 50 cents per position filled
Note that the above commissions are paid monthly, for as long as recruited paid affiliates continue to pay their $7.77 subscription fee.
A 50% matching bonus on matrix commissions earned by affiliates each month is paid out to the affiliate who recruited them.
Joining The 7 Sites
The 7 Sites affiliate membership is either free or $7.77 a month.
Free The 7 Sites affiliates can only earn direct recruitment commissions and the matching bonus.
The 7 Sites is basically a feeder to build Mike Peever’s downlines in the various scams he’s currently promoting. All but one of the scams being promoted are owned by Peever himself.
At the time of publication the seven scams featured on The 7 Sites are:
- Ad Co-op Pays (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
- Cash Club International (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
- Decide Your Path (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
- My Paycheck Weekly (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
- One Buck Marketing (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
- Merchant Shares (Ponzi scheme)
- Simple Cycler (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
- The F15teen (matrix recruitment, owned by Peever)
The 7 Sites itself operates as a pyramid scheme.
Can I earn without referring others?
A: While it is possible to earn without referring, it is highly unlikely to earn very much.
Affiliates buy a matrix position and then get paid to recruit others who do the same.
As long as affiliates continue to pay $7.77 a month, the affiliates who recruited them get paid.
As with all pyramid schemes, once recruitment of new affiliates dries up The 7 Sites will collapse.
This will begin with newly recruited at the bottom of the matrix ceasing to pay their monthly fees once they realize there’s nobody left to recruit.
This will see affiliates above them stop getting paid, who will also eventually stop paying their monthly fees too.
Over time this effect trickles up The 7 Sites affiliate-base, eventually resulting in an irreversible collapse.
At that point anyone who hasn’t recruited enough new affiliates to cover their own affiliate membership fees, loses out. A potential additional expense (loss) are fees paid to Mike Peever’s advertised “The 7 Sites” scams.
