Question about Infinity Downline

I have wondered if Infinity Downline is a pyramid scheme or ponzi scheme or not. I would not ever knowingly get involved with something I thought was illegal. The thing is though is when you do infinity downline is what your getting product. Are you moving product. Now I know you might consider it product but does the government consider what infinity dowline is selling to be product.

Or doing your bidness on a white sandy beach. One question though. How many levels of downline would it take to reach "infinity"? Heck with that. I want to go to infinity and BEYOND ! How do I do that Tenaire ?

As Yawn said it's both. A Pyramid Scheme can be a Ponzi Scheme as well. Look at the history of the MLM company Zeek Rewards. Same kind of thing.

There is no real product, no one is going to buy the crappy ebooks or training material. Unless you think maybe this one is a hot potential for huge sales...




So if there are no sales revenue and they are paying out commissions it can only be coming from new subscribers.

Ponzi? I think so.

I agree its crappy as hell and I wouldn't want to be involved, but more study needed on the definitions of ponzis and pyramids.

Agree 100% on 2 of three points. I think the definition of Ponzi is quite clear.

Of course its valuable training. I can't wait for Windows ME and 95 training CDs. Very cutting edge. Maybe they're recycling Amway tapes as well.

And doing their part in saving the environment by reducing landfill waste. So you see, a very viable Biz Op. I'll tell 2 people and they'll tell 2 people to INFINITY !

Oh man, I have an idea. Lets start a web site to sell Scam.com Posts. Our cost is nada, we can mark up to infinity. We can all be the top tier and sign them up. I hear Doyle has a good list. ;)
