Consumer Experience: Networking ‘Scam’?? (Planet Mobile | Top Deals)

A couple of weeks ago we featured an article about what’s really going on with ‘networking’ companies particularly Planet Mobile (grocery??) and Top Deals (online advertising??)..

Today, an update.

And guess what? It does not sound good; instead, it only confirms our doubts of ’em as ‘scammers’. Yeah, unfortunately for those who have joined, that’s bad news. And perhaps you would only realize it when you’re not really ‘working’ on their advertised purpose but most-of-the-time just ‘recruiting’, like trying to brainwash a child — and that’s the sad reality.

PLANET MOBILE

The ‘come on’ is that it’s a grocery business, so why are members doing more of recruiting rather than selling items? Okay, you get compensated through ‘binary pairing’, or for every pair that you recruit. Then again, why say it’s a grocery business when all you really buy from them is what you would consume? Can’t really sell expensive items, you know.

Yes, you get those ‘point values’ but you could also get them in supermarket ‘rewards card’ — and at a much, much cheaper membership fee. More so, most of Planet Mobile products are quite expensive compared to those in supermarkets, much more, public markets. So, why even buy from them? Makes sense?

If only for trying your luck, that would be understandable — since the ‘grocery’ idea is really a basic need. But then, if there’s no ‘product warranty’ like a refund then it must be a ‘scam’, right? After all, there are really no products in their P3,888 ‘joining fee’ but just 10 coffee sachets! See?

TOP DEALS

If you look at the streets, at many of the walls especially the posts outside your home, you will notice the flyers posted by Top Deals. Some says ‘job opening’, others say ‘350 online advertisers needed’, and still others say ‘home-based work earn up to P5k a week’ — and many more, at your own time and pace.

But. As you have read from our previous ‘networking’ article, you only get paid once you ‘recruit’ — and that is at least three! Wow!

Well, talked to more senior online advertisers, and they would even challenge you on selling your P1,800 ‘joining fee spot’ for P20,000 to them! Like saying “see, that’s how good it is to be part of Top Deals”! This could then make you believe on the tremendous earning potential of an online advertiser for the said company.

Still, you could get caught by surprise even as you have attended their orientation since the focus is on earning while using Facebook. But recruit first before being paid, more so three, that’s just wow!

Earning by recruiting first only shows that t’is not really about being an ‘online advertiser’ but a recruitment den, a ‘quicksand’.

If Top Deals do not offer refunds — then how could they even pay you that P20,000 challenge? Isn’t it a scam then?

Funny how this company is trying to divert our attention now.

Instead of going by recruiting online advertisers, they have gone the other route by offering online businesses to entice unknowing ‘victims’. And, at a much more hefty fee — close to P5,000 on membership that is. Again, wow!

Isn’t this something like being ‘thick-skinned’?

At P1,800, you could already have the said online business, it’s part of it — so why even increase the fee? While it’s good to have their ticketing, loading, ‘cash padala’ business, et cetera at your fingertips — you need to fund it first. It’s not like you get a customer and when the customer pays, it’d just be deducted online — as in, profit goes to your account while the regular charge goes to the said service entity. But no. So, it’s not good. Tough on the pocket. Like ‘forced funding’.

Hey, with these consumer experiences gone viral, wouldn’t you (Planet Mobile, Top Deals and alike) ‘positively’ address the issue if you were not a ‘scammer’? Otherwise, you may have the papers but does that make you any better than a leech?

Look. If you see write ups especially from those with first-hand experience regarding your company that is more of a complaint, or say a warning to ‘outsiders’ — should you just ignore it? Would you just say that these are simply coming from critics or something like that? Or that such negativity will just get blown by the wind?? Huh!

Of course not. That is if you value your reputation. If you are what you really say you are. Because ‘inaction’ would only give a negative signal to the public — that you don’t care, even and especially, for your members. And that you are indeed a ‘scammer’.

Would anyone still want to join such companies then?

Consumer Experience: Network Marketing (Planet Mobile | Top Deals)

Have you heard of Planet Mobile? How about Top Deals? Oh, we did feature about ’em before, remember? That was right after we ‘encountered’ these groups. Well, these are just some of the ‘networking’ companies to take advantage of social media.

And here’s what we learned about ’em..

PLANET MOBILE: The ‘grocery’ business??

Although they try to sell the idea of a grocery business (especially in their online presence) as in the case of Planet Mobile, it ain’t really such! It’s no actual business but simply networking. That, it should just be referred to as the business of networking.

Yes. Planet Mobile has grocery products or basic goods that we use daily; then again, most of their products are in fact more expensive than those in supermarkets. Really. Even rice. And so, members are just ‘forced’ to buy (and not ‘truly’ sell to others, which is what ‘real business’ is all about) from their hubs to get that ‘point value’. This ‘point value’ (or some kinda discount) is what you get whenever you purchase from Planet Mobile hubs — which supermarkets actually offer as well.

Some of ’em calls it ‘rewards card’. Others ‘elite card’ or whatever. Have you tried it?

While it takes P3,888.00 to join Planet Mobile and with practically no products included but only 10 sachets of coffee — in supermarkets, you would only need around P150.00 to have that membership card for repurchases through ‘point value’. Wow! With the huge difference, Planet Mobile certainly looks like some scam since you could also not get a refund once you pay the joining fee!

Then again, if you like ‘recruiting’ people to pay P3,888.00 then Planet Mobile may be the opportunity for you — as you would be eligible for the networking income they offer once you get those ‘binary pairings’ in place. Yeah, t’is something that supermarkets don’t have.

Still, for legitimacy’s sake, refunds should be allowed within a year (like a product warranty) of joining as not all are made for ‘networking’. After all, there were no ‘actual’ products given and P3,888.00 is hard-earned money — and not just a measly amount these days.

TOP DEALS: Just ‘click, like and share’ to earn??

Another ‘networking’ company that you could fall for is Top Deals. This is.. a lighter version of Planet Mobile considering their joining fee of P1,800.00 which is a little less than half of the said ‘grocery’ business’ joining fee of P3,888.00.

Here you are being enticed to join the company through a ‘job offer’ (as part-time or full-time online advertiser) — that, that you should actually pay for to enlist!

The Job. Just ‘click, like and share’ their said ads on Facebook and you’ll earn! That’s simple and certainly tempting since you could make your Facebook time more productive. Then again, here’s the catch.. you can’t ‘truly’ earn and get your benefits like the ‘birthday cash’ unless you recruit at least three others.

Whew, this then sounds like a scam! Hey, it’s not a job of clicking on Facebook (as an online advertiser) that’s really being offered but for you to recruit three others in order to start earning!

Sure. Although you would be informed of such condition during the orientation, you won’t really get a grasp of it unless you have tried it — since in the first place, the emphasis was on the ‘click, like and share’ on Facebook and get that chance to earn P5,000.00 or more a week. Period.

In all and at the very least, only a refund opportunity on these ‘networking’ companies’ (Planet Mobile, Top Deals and alike) joining fee could remove our ‘scam’ doubts on ’em.

Lesson. When you hear the line, ‘this opportunity is for open-minded people only’ among others — then it must be about ‘networking’ wherein you’ll pay a membership fee. If you’re up to it.. Join at your own risk.

Income Opportunities: Basic Needs. Health. Online Jobs.

Many misfortunes actually happen due to lack of cooperation. Due to wrong competition. Due to lack of faith, therefore, due to lack of foresight as well as understanding. And so, if only people open their minds to what really happened in their lives, to how things could unfold — then surely, they wouldn’t even blame especially their partner for whatever situation they are in. That’s life.

Good thing even in your deepest needs, we got you covered. To be debt-free and prospering, you just got to change your mentality.

Simply put, getting out of your hole is a matter of accepting that ‘we are all in this together’ — therefore, helping each other which is also known as ‘networking’ is the key to financial independence. Hmm… Ready for all the opportunities now?

BASIC NEEDS

The most common business in the country has been a ‘sari-sari’ store. It’s good. You get some extra income; but what if there’s just too many sari-sari stores, how long could you exist? And if you do, it must be on an almost break-even scenario. Result? You would have to close down, or continue and hope that more people would buy instead of going to your store for credit.

Here now is an opportunity for you to get out of that rut. How about joining a ‘networking grocery business’?? Here, you get a discount on products (which you use daily and could sell if you wish) and as how Planet Mobile is structured — ‘get paid whenever you refer loyal customers to earn with us and earn more whenever they buy these products or services’! Sounds good?

HEALTH

Indeed, there’s just too many supplements and health products around — then again, the difference is really in the contents. That’s what you are actually paying for. And that’s what it says about its healing properties. Now, depending on your body’s needs — that should be your basis in choosing what supplement to take. Thus, many as they are, they are still different in many ways.

So, if only not to be confused, if only to maximize its health benefits — it’d certainly be better to choose organic with the most powerful antioxidants there is. In this case, not only would you be healthy but you’d earn handsomely, too. Click Here for more!

ONLINE JOBS

Seriously, what is new with needing a job? After all, we do need some form of income generating activity — may it be through business or employment — to survive and do things we like. But still, how many are in fact ‘open-minded’ enough to grab such opportunities?

See?? There’s no something for nothing unless you’re family. To be able to thrive, you need to do something about it — whether give time, money or effort. Everything has a price.

If you shy away even at the first challenge of any activity then how could you climb your mountain? If you turn your back upon hearing things that are not to your liking — then how could you even attain anything worthwhile? Makes sense??

Opportunities could only be understood when you learn to weigh what’s at stake — with all your negative perceptions. And so, you’d only know its real value if you are patient enough to dig until you reach the bottom of things. A window of opportunity has opened..
