What Is It?
This is a hosting scam. They attempt to sell you a secret system of making money but force you to pay for 6 months to 3 years of non-refundable hosting in advance before you reach the members area.
They say it's free, then they charge $49. Then they discount the price to $9 and try to sell you something else for $200+. Then they try to sell you hosting for a couple hundred bucks and start emailing you promotions for other stuff.
When you sign up for SMS, you don't just buy a product, you enter a world of systematic fraud, attempting to take as much money as possible before you wise up to what's going on.
Before You Buy
We've seen this setup before. In facts, it happens on a monthly basis with similar products, many produced by the same guy. Simple Money System was not created by Juan Gabriel. This is an actor.
The real creator's name is Ronnie Montano, and he is a famous internet scam artist.
Why is he still allowed to produce stuff like this and cheat people out of their money? Beats me. There are a few companies that allow junk like this to be spammed out to your inbox including JV Zoo, Clicksure, and JV Notify Pro.
If the website looks familiar, it's because it's a commonly used format – black background and some gibberish about there being limited spots in your location. Another example is the Full Money System (yeah, these names get real creative).
So far we haven't even watched the sales video and it's already looking like an obvious scam.
Ignore all the fake reviews saying this program as a way to make fast money. Actually it's quite a common “product launch” style that's used by many internet marketers. It's just a hosting scam.
A hosting scam is where they tell you the product is free and they will give you a free website, but then you have to pay for expensive hosting. They encourage your to pay for multi-year programs which cost hundreds of dollars up front, or on a month my month basis you pay at least triple what a normal company would cost.
They do not tell us anything about HOW we are going to make money with this system, but most of the time it works like this:
1. They give you a free website (randomly chosen based on your location)
2. They have you promote whatever you just purchased
3. OR they give you a list of products to put on your site
After that, they try to sell you things like traffic and advertising packages which can run into the $100's of dollars, or even private coaching sessions which can be $1,000 and have a no refund policy.
Other Montano Products
There are links to other products that they want you to buy inside the members area, including other stuff from Montano. It doesn't make sense that once you buy something that's supposed to make you money they immediately try to sell you another “system” that's supposed to make you money. Yet, that's the way they set things up.
Make no mistake, this product is aimed at selling you as much as possible, and hoping you don't ask for a refund.
Email and Phone Scams
One of the worst things you can do is hand over your phone number to these people. You will be bombarded by several phone calls a day for a few weeks, and probably get a monthly call for the rest of your life. I'm not kidding.
I submitted my phone number ONCE. I got 20 calls in the first day after submission, and about 50+ for the week. 12 months later, I'm still getting calls about “biz ops”. Don't do it.
Email is just as bad, but at least you can ignore these or set up a filter to send them to spam. Expect to get hit up 1-3 times per day in your email inbox with “offers” of other biz ops AKA scams.
This product is so far from the truth of how real people earn living online, it's hard to even talk about what I do at this point.
I build websites and sell stuff on them. It's not that hard to do, but it takes time to learn. If you are disgusted by scams like the Simple Money System and want to learn how to earn money how I do, sign up for my email course.
You can create a free entry-level membership at a training center, get 10 free lessons about internet marketing, and get my personal support while you start your first business.
Most products like this last just a few short months then disappear. That's the nature of hype in the business of making money online.
The only system I've seen last more than a decade is the same place where I learned how to start an online business. They've been around teaching newbies to make money online since 2006. You can join for free and start your first website in the next couple minutes
