This is not the first site of its kind. Though the owners Scott Agee and Stefan Dessalines are pretty straightforward in telling us what you do to make money, there are some details you need to know before you get too excited.
Everything is not what it seems. Plus, there are a few red flags I want to show you.
Before You Buy
Well, there's nothing to buy…yet. But don't worry, the costs will come!
It's free to get, and free to watch the instructional videos. Great. But you haven't made any money yet. There's a lot of talk about Fortune 500 companies, doing free offers, and collecting points. But how does it all work?
The Thing They Don't Tell You
The most important thing you need to know right now is that there is a very good chance you will spend more money than you make doing this.
Though the Freebie Money Printer videos repeatedly tell you that these are “free offers”, and they only briefly cover the fact that you have to USE YOUR CREDIT CARD to sign up. Why would you need a credit card if the offers were free?
As with many trial offers, they are hoping that you use the trial, like the service, and let your subscription roll over into full payments.
And it's not always as easy as you think to cancel. Remember that you have to use 85% of the trial period, so you can't sign up, an cancel right away. You have to keep track of dates when you sign up, and how long you are required to be active. You'll then have to make phone calls or send emails to cancel before they charge you (remember they already have your credit card info)
You'll have to create a spreadsheet and track everything. Did they tell you this? No.
Many of the offers you complete will only give you 1/2 credit. 1 credit = $1, so you have to complete 10 offers to make $5.
Can you sign up for 10 different accounts (including personal info, home address, card number, etc) in 1 hour? Congrats! You just worked for $5 an hour!
Oh, you forgot to cancel your Netflix subscription? That's $8 per month, so now you spend 1 to make -$3!
So, understand that just ONE mistake can take your account from profitable, to **costing you money**.
Which brings me back to my main point. People that make money with these types of systems are not the ones using them. They are the ones promoting them. We've seen similar strategies with names like Instant Payday Network, Project Payday, Treasure Trooper, and Z Best Freebies.
Numerous people have told me in the comments that I don't understand the system. They say that you don't make money by completing offers. You have to complete offers to “qualify” as an affiliate of Big Kabang. Then you promote Big Kabang, and and people you recruit also have to complete these offers.
That still doesn't change many of my complaints below, namely a lack of training on how to recruit, previous failed attempts at starting the exact same service, it's MLM-like qualities (aka pyramid selling/recruiting), and a few other things. Keep reading for details.
What I Liked
The owners are very straightforward about showing you where you need to go, and the instructions they give are newbie friendly.
What I Didn't Like
Obviously, I don't like this system much. Here are more things to dislike about it in case you weren't convinced yet.
There are no Fortune 500 companies here! In fact, most of these companies I've never heard of. The only semi-famous ones are Gamefly and Equifax, neither of which are on the list.
We've already covered this, but you know the free example of Gamefly Scott used in the videos? Check out how much you'll be paying to take the trial. Now you know what I mean.
Also, you should know that their #1 marketing tactic is to spam Craigslist. After taking a look at the additional free training, you'll see from the screenshot below that CL is high up on their list. MLM marketing is one of the most annoying things on Craigslist in my opinion. All posts are the same…”Looking for marketing representatives to deliver leads in YOUR area!”.
UPDATE: I just found out that recruiting for MLM or even affiliate marketing via Craigslist is actually against their terms of service.
Also, you'll see that their website isn't even completed yet! Here are two screenshots from some of the additional training areas.
If you had seen this, you might think it was strange and move on, then forget about it. But to me, this is just another red flag that shows these guys didn't even complete this website, and are ready to bail at any time. You can also see that they previously did another project called the EZ Money Printer, which looks quite similar. Hm, it kind of makes you wonder!
About Scott Agee & Stefan Dessalines
I always hate including dirt on owners in my reviews, because I really don't know these people, or the motives behind their products. But after doing a Google Search for Scott, I found some information worth sharing.
You'll notice that he's a serial promoter, involved in big name MLM companies like MCA and the gigantic-mega-scam Empower Network.
As is typical with MLM, it seems he's jumping from product to product, finding the “next hottest thing” to promote to his list.
What's hot now?
Pure Leverage. Remember the option to sign up for that thing that they didn't really explain what it was? That's it. And it costs a bundle. I've done a review of Pure Leverage, and no, it did not receive a positive rating.
As I mentioned above, I can't comment on his, or Stefan's character. But I can say that I would not purchase anything they promote, and recommend you do the same.
It's time consuming, and a risk to your wallet. The owners have a sketchy history with product promotion, and do not provide adequate training in this one.
Why get mixed up in MLM, network marketing, and other shady types of businesses when you can start building a legitimate online business.
Sure, the attraction of easy and free money will always sounds nice, but the truth is, it's going to take hard work and dedication.
If you are just getting started and wondering what the heck to do next, I recommend you take a look at the online business training center for newbies that I recommend. It's where I got started just a few years ago. You won't see flashy cars or claims of fast money, but you will get the training you deserve.
