Quote:
Individual marketing results & profits may vary dependent upon many transient factors.
Transient factors such as conversion rates of sales per number mailed, and 1% is high more likely to be around 0.1%, how much your upline will charge you for you for the "neccesary" supplies and training" to do as they have done, and

Legal often doesn't mean much. Anything is legal until there's a law made against it.

Typical mailing scheme. Most likely buy 'supplies' from them and buy 'training' from them, just to learn how to "introduce" others to the method. Didn't see what they were selling other than the opportunity to build based on selling membership down-line.

The way I understand it is...
From my $250.00. One hundred each goes to the guys above me in the pyramid. The remaining 50 bux probably goes to the guy that started this, so he probably makes $50.00 on every transaction. Then I have to wait patiently for at least 3 other dupes to send me $100 bux so I can at least break even.

No such thing as a legal pyramid schemes.

This sounds like your typical MMF scam, thought these things had died, we used to make fun of them in the MMF Hall of Humiliation.

Yes, It seems to be a combo of a chain letter and a pyramid scheme. What's interesting is when you click on FAQ's the one question asks can I see the product? And the answer is no. That's probably cause there is no product Laughing

I did some searching and finally found a review from an actual user on the scam dot com website. The review states:

"I have put XPPS into quite an intensive trial for 1 month. Sending out postcards, trying on PPC, advertising on *****slist, InetGiant and other media, this is what i got.

Total Spending : $300
Number of Visits : 700
Number of Opt-ins : 40

So you can see, I spend about $7.50 per opt-in. Sound not bad right. Here is my conversion. 6 Opt-ins sign-up which work out to be 15% conversion ratio based on number of opt-ins. Sound really good!

Look what happen. I got zero paying members. Yes, $0 collected. Some members I spoken to obtain a more dismal results as they have 9 opt-ins out of 1,000 sent postcards. Zero sign-ups after $480 spent.

You draw your own conclusion."
