Telexfree legit or scam?

I have had quite a few people trying to convince me that Telexfree is the real deal telling me that it is a legally registered company that recently bought a very big phone company which I know nothing about until now.

Personally to me this looks like another relative of Zeek covered up with a product to make it look legit.

I would like to hear everyone's opinion of Telexfree whether they think it is a scam or the real deal.

Whatever you state, please try your best to back it up with some kind of proof or evidence.

Telexfree could have the intention to eventually run off with your money with quite a few investing thousands of dollars which you might never ever see again or get a return on with a profit.

Please tell me that I'm wrong or right in what I believe about Telexfree.

Thanks guys, looking forward to your comments!

Thanks Ohien56, the latest update looks like enough for people and those already involved in Telexfree to start running from this Scam!

Interesting to see how big this thread will get from the reaction of this latest news!

Re: Telexfree legit or scam?

The closer I look the more I realize what a money-shuffling POS Telexfree is.

RUN away, don't look back. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Scams like this end ugly, and even if you make them work for you, there's what's called "clawback".

If you enjoy your sleep, steer clear of this pile of dung.

I don't have any friends in this but I have other network marketers that I know who are involved in it and some who are quite deep trying to convince me that this is best thing ever.

I feel sorry for them, and hope they recover from this company which I feel is about to go under at any moment.

I'm glad that I have never touched this so called company!

I have learned too much from mistakes made in network marketing and falling for other types of scams over the years that I now smell a scam a mile away!

This is what I now say to people especially when it comes to network marketing.

"Many promising Network Marketing opportunities have either failed from bad management or completely disappeared only to be a scam.

As a result, I no longer join any Network Marketing opportunity unless the company has been in business for a minimum of two years to make sure they have kept a good track record and that they have delivered their promises.

The company also must be a legally registered business with a physical address, website, phone, email and must follow taxation rules when paying their representatives including internationally in the country they operate.


If the company does business internationally, it will need to have either a (.com), (.net) website domain name for professional standards.


Lastly the company's head office needs to be located within the USA, Canada, UK and Australia.


I mention this because people like myself have wasted so much time, effort, money, downlines, credibility and only want an opportunity that will be here in the next 50 years."

Same here. They stick out like a sore thumb after a while, don't they?

So....Let me get this straight....

You have been involved in MLM for over 3 decades/w "MLM experts" advice.

Shouldn't you be an MLM "expert" at some point?

Why waste your time here at SCAM.COM?

That's interesting.

Re: Telexfree legit or scam?

Supposedly everyone who joins, purchases/buys into the VoIP software for $50 bucks a month, also becomes an affiliate, and is able to earn money by promoting the software and opportunity.

Where it starts to become shady is affiliates buy ad packs in various denominations to promote the product and opportunity via free online classified ads.

The affiliates then purportedly earn $20 per week per 3 ads placed per day. The more money invested, the higher the weekly return.

My questions are: How good is the VoIP software, and are those free classified ads really working or just a gimmick to make folks think they actually work? How much of the product is being bought without a money making opportunity attached to it?

It appears the company is actually paying affiliates from the ad packs money rather than from the software product. There's a lot of money being shuffled around and no hard evidence the product stands on its own in a competitive market place.

So far, the TelexFree train is being held at the station until further notice of the ongoing investigation which should be concluded within the next couple of weeks.

Looks like the gavel is coming down hard on this one soon.

I didn't think so."
