Global Moneyline Review – A Big Fat Pyramid Scheme

global-moneyline-logo

Global Moneyline has been receiving a lot of talk on social media lately.

I like to find the true legitimacy of products before I dive in willy-nilly

In this Global Moneyline review I want to find how legit it is, all the red flags, the good, the bad and what they are REALLY offering over at this “income opportunity”.

Because at the end of the day, anyone can say their system is the best and the latest and greatest but it takes true research to discover what they are really all about.

I bet you’ve heard enough of my babbling so lets get right into it!

About Global Moneyline


Who Owns this System

There is no information anywhere stating who the owner of this website is.

The only thing I could find was the address they are based out of, which is:

MoneyLine
7900 International Drive
Suite 300
Bloomington, MN 5542

When I search that address in Google Maps I find a massive building cooperation, and there is no name behind this website whatsoever.

This is already a warning sign in my books.

This has got to be a fake address.

When did it Launch

As I take a sneak peak at their organic traffic stats I can see that they started seeing visitors in October of 2016 and has been rising slowly ever since.

Whois records show the domain was registered in February of 2016.

Here is their traffic stats:

global-moneyline-traffic-stats

global-moneyline-organic-traffic

Traffic shows a slow decline in total visitors but a rise in organic traffic.

Why did they create it?

There is little to no information on the owners and their mission so I do not know exactly what their intentions are behind this website, but I hope to find out as I continue reviewing this system.

What Do They Claim Over at Global Moneyline?


They are claiming that they have the worlds largest downline of people.

They claim to have a rich collection of online resources all ranging from communication tools, online forums, personalized content and branding programs.

They also say they have a free membership available and a paid membership, but to join you have to be invited by someone that’s already in the system.

Global Moneyline System claim a bunch of other stuff but I’ll get more on that in a second.

So What Exactly is Global Moneyline?


The Global Moneyline system is nothing more than a lead-generating website where you join and send emails to members.

What might you send exactly?

Well it is for business purposes, so you might want to send a new product you created, a lead capturing page or an affiliate program, literally anything.

As a free member you can send emails to members one by one (slowest method) or 20 emails (fastest method) as a paid member.

According to their official website, they have a total of 360,673 subscribers which continues to grow everyday.

These are the subscribers that will be receiving your promotional emails.

There is a catch to this by the way, and the catch is that you’ll ALSO be receiving emails from other members.

This means you have to put up with other emails being spammed to your inbox.

You cannot opt out of the emails otherwise you simply cannot use the system.

A Huge Flaw


The thing with these types of systems is that the others who joined signed up for the exact same reason as you did.

That reason was to pitch their system, product or affiliate link to anyone and everyone.

And let me ask you this:

Will you be opening the emails and signing up to the spammy links that show up? I bet NOT.

So why do you think anyone will open yours and try your offer?

Sure you might receive some views and some sign ups, however, don’t expect to receive any good results from these types of traffic sources.

You’ll hardly ever make a sale and if you happen to capture a lead it’ll be difficult to convert them since they are freebie seekers.

The Compensation Plan


The compensation plan allows you to earn money simply by marketing the paid membership plan.

This costs $20.

And yes, you have to purchase the membership plan before you can promote it yourself.

To make money with the compensation plan it’s just a matter of sharing your link or promoting your link via free methods or paid methods.

Whoever signs up under you becomes a member of your downline.

Now when someone in your downline purchases the $20 membership, you gain a commission.

Your downline goes infinite levels deep and features a 2-up system.

This means your first 2 paying customers’ commissions will go directly to your upline and not you.

Any Red Flags?


There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to Global Moneyline.

One red flag is that whoever owns this website has registered the domain privately so we don’t know their identity.

There is also no name anywhere on the website, for whatever reason I don’t know.

There seems to be a large majority of these members joining just to promote the affiliate program and earn commissions.

Now this is all fine and dandy and all, but when it becomes the main focus of the system , this becomes a problem and it turns into a big fat pyramid scheme.

There are also reports that your promotional emails aren’t even getting sent to the members, so you’re basically joining the owners email list while thinking your emails are getting sent out but they are not.

Are People Really Making Money?


I have no doubts that people are making money with Gobal Moneyline.

The matter of fact is: those who know how to market affiliate programs are the ones making the big dollars.

The people with huge email lists and social media followings are the ones benefiting from this system.

It is the ones that are new to the whole internet marketing thing that don’t make a dime.

They’ll join and think spamming their links to friends and family are going to make them money.

They are then left with no clicks, no money made and they’ve only gone and annoyed their loved ones.

This is the sad truth and the cycle will continue, but yes I would be lying if I said no one is making money with the Global Moneyline system, because people definitely are.

Does it Cost to Join?


It is completely free to join Gobal Moneyline and use what they have to offer.

Their free membership gives you access to some of their features, however, you cannot earn money with the system if you stay a free member.

To earn money you have to purchase the membership which costs $20.

Pros and Cons


Pros

  • Can make money if you’re an experienced internet marketer

Cons

  • Not good for newbies
  • Highly unsustainable
  • High-risk
  • Pyramid scheme
  • Too many red flags

Is Global Moneyline a Scam?


It is hard to say whether it is a scam or not, because at the end of the day it is still possible to make money when you market the affiliate program.

But on the other hand, the main focus IS to promote the affiliate program.

When that becomes the main focus, it turns into a pyramid scheme, and pyramid schemes are definitely illegal and not a viable business opportunity.

Just because you can make money with Gobal Moneyline, that does NOT make it okay and safe.

It contains too many red flags to count, the owner is hiding his/her identity, it’s a big pyramid scheme and we don’t even know how long it’s going to last.

For all we know the owner may run off with everyone’s money! They can definitely do that since we don’t know who we’re dealing with!

So after reviewing everything about this system and the fact that there’s so much wrong with Global Moneyline, I have no choice but to call it a scam.

What I Recommend


I don’t know how many systems like this that I’ve joined in the past, but I do know there are thousands scamming people as we speak.

We cannot expose them as fast as they are being created.

When one pyramid scheme gets exposed, the owner starts a new one with all the money made from the previous, and it’s a never-ending cycle.

I decided to stop jumping from system to system, shiny object to shiny object and created something for myself that is highly sustainable.

And that is having my own website my friend.

I don’t have to be in constant fear that a system may go down and I’ll be left with no business, because I own my websites and everything inside them.

I promote affiliate products and earn commissions, and I make a full-time income doing it.

Wealthy Affiliate taught me everything I know and it is the program I recommend for anyone wanting to finally make real money online.

  1. Hi Brandon, thank you for a very thorough review of Global MoneyLine and I am happy to see you are also not a big fan of MLM!

    A few months ago I was being bombarded with Global MoneyLine emails and when I looked at it I came to the same conclusion as you in that this program is not suitable for most people.

    In fact, your recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate is far more suitable for newbies and more experienced people, and the best part is people can start for free and check out the complete training platform.

    Great site… keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks Moni.

      Luckily you didn’t try Global Moneyline because like thousands of others who have hated this system, you will to. It so bad and only getting worse.

      Thanks for the comment.

  2. Thanks for the helpful article. There is a lot of scams and sketchy people out there so you never know what you’re getting into without a little research.

    1. I definitely agree with you Seth.

      With the vast amount of scams on the internet it’s 100% essential to do research or you could be getting scammed hundreds of dollars, which has happened to me…multiple times in fact.

      Luckily I found a legit system that teaches you how to create your own business and not somebody else’s.

  3. Thanks for the review/investigation Brandon. I’d definitely call it a scam. Even if it produces money to experienced marketers it’s still a just another money making scheme this business is already riddled with.

    The oldest trick in the internet marketing book is to make money by telling others how to make money by telling others how to make money (no, that’s not a spelling error). The poor customer that ends up paying up is probably some desperate chap who really shouldn’t be spending his last dimes on a false promise on the internet.

    Fortunately it’s possible to build legit honest businesses, It just takes work and knowledge like everything else in life. Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a good place to start.

    Love your domain name btw, maybe we should unite some time! πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha, I’d love to unite with another like-minded person one day buddy.

      Global Moneyline is indeed just another way for scammers to promote to chaps that don’t know better and make a fortune. This is what’s happening and it’s getting out of hand.

  4. Haha, this is the second article I read about this Global MoneyLine, I had never heard of it before but I haven’t heard anything good so far. As you explain what it is about I keep thinking about how Herbalife tries to sell their shit to people who wanna earn some extra cash. The marketing is really good but often their identity stays hidden until you show that you’re interested. I will stay away from this GLM and put my money into something sustainable, like my own website I created via WA.

    Thanks for sharing. All the best,
    Jonathan

    1. Often times their identity IS hidden because as soon as their system is exposed they’ll close it down and create a new one with another hidden identity, or just use a pen name.

      Good luck on your website!

  5. Hello Brandon,
    I was looking for information about Global Moneyline and I ran into your blog.
    Thanks so much for such an informative post and above all for opening my eyes.
    It is good to find bloggers who strive to deliver valuable information to their readers.
    I would like to build a profitable online business from scratch and this is definitely not what I need.
    Your Wealthy affiliate did intrigue me instead and now I am fancying creating an account… Two are the things that I liked most about it:
    1) NO MLM
    2) The owners do show their faces!

    I am of course in the process of digesting all the information you provided us readers with, but I will be asking you a lot of questions in the next few days (if you do not mind).
    Thanks again,

    1. The Wealthy Affiliate are clear on how you make money and what you’ll be doing to earn that money. They aren’t afraid to show their face because they are actually legit and know their system is #1.

      And that’s completely okay. I’ll be ready and waiting πŸ™‚
