A Brief Overview of the system and how it works  

My online business empire or also known as MOBE is just another MLM pyramid scheme that promises you instant wealth for doing little to no work.

You will pretty much be buying some overpriced software training program that you will have to sell to other people and recruit them to do the exact same thing you are doing.

Doesn’t this sound familiar? This sounds a lot like the Empower network. As a matter of fact they have a membership level that’s called the private inner circle.

My Online business empireMatt Lloyd is so confident that his system will have you making anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 commissions within your next 30 days that he backs it up with his $500 NO RISK GUARANTEE!

I will show you how he can do this and why this guarantee is actually useless below.

This is just the start of the lies and deception that I am about to uncover for everyone today. Stick around because I am about to review one of the biggest scams ever in the internet marketing industry today.

What exactly am I going to be doing when I join MOBE?

Well you would think that you would be doing as their name suggests, building an online business empire. This couldn’t be anywhere farther from the truth.

When you join you will have to pay a $49 application fee and then you will have to answer a few questions to see if you are approved or not.

What kinda program makes you pay an application fee and then makes you go through a process to be accepted? If and when they accept you into their program you will then be given access to a 21 step program called My Top Tier Business.

You will be shown how to market this scam to other people and you will be teaching them how to do the same thing you have just done.

They will be showing other people how to do the same thing and on and on. It’s a vicious cycle that never ends and we are starting to see more and more companies going in this direction.

To be quite honest with you I thought this program had some potential so I tried it out and spent the $49 on it hoping to see some results with it.

 What do you get for the $49 application fee?

You will be given access to my top tier business. This is a video training series that is a 21 step program that walks you through how to make high commissions.

These range from 1K to 5K and this is per sale. matt lloyd mobe scamI had just completed step 5 of Matt’s system when I got a notification that my access was being cut off.

If I wanted to continue with the course I would need to pay out an additional $1997 to finish watching the videos and complete the 21 step plan.

I was so mad. Matt makes it very clear in his video and also its all over the sales page that the $49 is the only thing you will ever have to pay to be making high commissions.

Here is how he is able to get away with offering this no risk $500 guarantee that I talked about above.

He said there was a few rules that you needed to abide by or his guarantee. Check them out below: Matt lloyd scam

He fails to mention that step 6 of his program is for you to take care of a licensing fee that gives you the right to sell this program to others. This licensing fee as he calls it will run you an additional $1997.

So now you are required to pay an extra $2K just to continue going through his course. There is also the option of making 4 payments of $597. This comes out to $2377.

What good is it to have a $500 guarantee if you gotta pay over $2,000 just to check out his program? This is the most shadiest type of marketing that I have ever seen and this makes me sick.

Here is what you are supposed to get when you join for $49

My top tier business

 Is There Any Training Or Tools Available In My Online Business Empire?

The training (If you wanna call it that) Is a 21 step program called My Top Tier Business or MTTB for short. You are given a task that you have to do everyday for 21 days and he claims you will be making anywhere from 1K to 5K commissions everyday within your first 30 days.

I have been in internet marketing for over 3 years now and I know you don’t make that much money that fast. You gotta start your business from 0 and build it up over time.

Take a look at everything you get in the MTTB program below: My Top Tier Business I will list everything you see above below:

  • 21 Simple steps program
  • 1 on 1 personal coaching
  • Done for you direct sales system
  • Daily training lessons and webinars done by the top earners
  • A professional phone sales staff
  • Access to the 30 day traffic plan
  • Done for you product fulfillment
  • Access to my traffic generation team
  • Insider access to the best sales funnel pages
  • Live local training and mentoring
  • Access to the Inner circle program

Lets Take A Look At Some Of The Pros And Cons Of This Program

Pros: 

  • You can earn some high commissions if money is all you care about and not providing some value

Cons:

  • Is setup just like a MLM Ponzi scheme
  • You have to pay $2,000 just to be an affiliate for them
  •  Some of the most dishonest and shady marketing that I have ever seen
  • There is no training on how to actually build an online business like their name implies
  • You are lied to multiple times in the first 5 minutes
  • Has a multitude of up sells and down sells within the system
  • Little to no help and support when you need it
  • Doesn’t let you try it out for FREE
  • The products are extremely overpriced and not worth it

Here’s The Real Price If You Actually Want To Make Money With MOBE

Like most MLM pyramid schemes in this industry they have a whole list of low quality overpriced programs that they call training.

You will be required to purchase all of these products if you want to make some good money with this program.

If you actually paid the $1997 licensing fee(Which I hope you didn’t) then be prepared to dish out a lot more money.

  • $1997+$49 application fee-My Top Tier Business the 21 step program that I mentioned above
  • $97 per month- The Private Inner circle If you joined MTTB above then you get access to the Private  Inner Circle.
  • $97 per month- MOBE elite earners
  • $97 per month- Already done for you emails
  • $194- My Email Marketing Empire
  • $194- OPT Formula(Outsourcing Formula)
  • $291- Affiliate Bonus Domination
  • $194- Funded proposal

My Online Business Empire

If you think that’s bad I haven’t even scratched the surface on all the other products(If you wanna call them that) you are going to  need if you wanna get anywhere in this program.

You can also earn a 90% commission on the products above if you purchase them.

Are you ready for some more over priced low quality training? These are the products you can earn a 50% commission on if you purchase them.

Here is where it really gets expensive and these prices are getting insane.

  • $1997-10,000 Leads in only 100 days
  • $997- Online Income Revolution
  • $997- The 90 day challenge
  • $997- Six Figure Coaching secrets
  • $997- Add The Nitrous
  • $4997- Diamond Coaching Program
  • $8997- Titanium Mastermind

If you were to purchase everything they are pushing on you just for you to get high commissions.  You are looking at over $300 a month and around 24,000 in one off payments.

I don’t know about you guys but if I had 24 grand I certainly wouldn’t invest it in this MLM Pyramid ponzi scheme. I would be using it as a down payment on a new house or I would buy a new car.

Does Matt Offer His Help And Support

Matt lloyd mttb scam

The help and support is offered in the form of help desk. You can submit a ticket and Matt and his gang should be back in touch with you within 36 hours.

I did notice something odd and this has brought up another red flag. Instead of MOBE investing the time and money into making their program better by offering a place to hang out and create a social community.

You will find everyone hanging out on Facebook in the MOBE group that Matt has created.

If I am investing thousands of dollars into a program I want to know that my money is being well spend.

If I need some help or support or have any questions I want to know that someone will be there for me. I’m afraid that if you are looking to get 24/7 help and 1 on 1 support you are going to be very disappointed.

You Have To Pay Just To Be An Affiliate

I have been in affiliate/internet marketing for over 3 years now. I have also joined lots of affiliate programs in that time and I have NEVER paid to be an affiliate for someone and I never will.

If you payed the ridiculous price of over $2000 just to test out his program then you have basically paid for your right to sell this crap to everyone else. I know I wouldn’t want to pay $2000 to promote some program I don’t know much about would you guys?

Let’s see how MOBE stacks up to the program that’s responsible for me being able to quit my job in 10 short months

 

Here’s My Verdict On My Online Business Empire

Anything that you have gotta pay for just to be able to promote it is definitely a ponzi pyramid scheme and you should definitely avoid it.

I gave this one a try and as you can see it is a very expensive and very dishonest program to get wrapped up in. You could very well spend $10,000’s in no time. I don’t want to see that happen to you.

Here is my suggestion to everyone here today

If you came here reading this to check out the company and find out if it was legit or not I’m glad I could help you out today.

But, I want to take it one step further and show you a real legit place where you can start making good money online without being scammed.

That would be Wealthy Affiliate! You can get started for FREE and you also get 2 free websites to get your business up and running. I have covered so much in this review and I hope that it has helped you out and gave you enough information to avoid this scheme altogether.

If you have been a previous member of MOBE, you are a current member now, or you were thinking of joining. I would love to hear your comments, questions, or anything you would like to add below.

I will get back to you within 24 hours or less

Your Friend Scott

    Yes, MOBE is cheating me almost £500. I lost this money b/c I have no idea about on line marking or business. So, I advise anyone who is looking to make money using Facebook, using email or by any means DON’T JOIN MOBE. most of the time they are using Facebook to trap people. So please don’t do it.

      Hey there,

      Thank you so much for chiming in and sharing your experience that you’ve had with MOBE with everyone here today. It seems like MOBE targets people like yourself who have no experience in online marketing or doing business online.

      I’m sorry to hear that you were scammed out of nearly £500 and my heart goes out to you. Making money with Facebook is possible but I can promise you that you won’t learn how to master this using the MOBE system.

      Thanks again for sharing your story with everyone here today!!

    Hello! thank you for your honest review. I was interested in Mobe, but it did sound good to be true to me, and I look around to find out more information. Thank you for that. I also believe that this company is absolutely B/S.Also, I find out there is another company doing similar business in selling educational courses, but basically almost identical to MOBE is Digital Altitude – all same B/S – buy the first course for $37 do the steps then upgrade to Rise level by paying $1997 and all the same like MOBE. I was wondering – maybe they Clone the MOBE, just make a different name. I will look into your link for your Affiliate marketing business and Will do my due diligence. Let me know if you know anything about Digital Altitude?

      You are most welcome Elana!

      I’m glad that this review has helped you out and I’m glad that I was able to save you thousands of dollars and help you from becoming MOBE’s next victim. I totally agree with you that MOBE is nothing but a bunch of BS and you should avoid this company at all costs.

      I actually do know a good amount about Digital Altitude and I did a review on this company as well a few months back. I have reviewed many other companies that seem like they are a carbon copy of MOBE and there seems to be more and more of these types of programs popping up here lately.

      If you aren’t careful, you could end up spending up to $20K if you would decide to go all in with Digital Altitude and I couldn’t even imagine someone investing this much money on a BS program like this. It’s programs like MOBE & Digital Altitude that give affiliate marketing a bad name and may make it seem like everything related to making money online is a scam.

      Affiliate Marketing is definitely a legitimate business model and has been around for 20 years now. You should definitely do your due diligence on any potential business opportunity or company that you’re thinking about joining beforehand so that you know what you’re getting yourself into.

      I really do want to thank you for dropping by today Elana and letting me know how much my review has helped you out.

      It’s much appreciated!

    Hi Scott,

    I’ve got a similar story to share about my experience with MOBE. Matt Lloyd also took my money and I couldn’t get a refund.

    Unfortunately, I let his marketing skills get the best of me and I caved in and paid the $1,997.00 to gain access to MTTB. When I contacted his support team all I got was an automated response that didn’t even answer my question which took almost 3 days to hear from them.

    This is all the money I had left to my name. I have been trying to start over and slowly rebuild everything I lost with MOBE but with all the scams out there, I’m not sure where to turn as a legit money making program.

    It looks like you have been here for a while so what would you suggest?

    I look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Hi there,

      I’m so sorry to hear that Matt Lloyd ripped you off of $2,000 and my heart goes out to you. If there is one thing that these scam artists have going for them is they are great marketers and they know how to make their product or service look like it’s the answer to your problems and something you can’t live without.

      This doesn’t surprise me at all that their support team was no help at all and I guess you’re lucky they responded at all. I have heard other people tell me that they got no response whatsoever from them. I’m glad that you aren’t letting this get you down though and that you have decided to start rebuilding and getting yourself back out there.

      If you’re looking for a cost effective, legit, and user friendly place that will show you the proper way to build a business online I would suggest that you check out Wealthy Affiliate. This is the place where I’ve learned everything I know today and I would highly advise you to check them out and see what they can do for you.

      I really hope this has helped you out and please let me know if you have any additional questions or need my help.

    My story with Mobe starts when an acquaintance mention this business in his facebook, I checked the link and looks fishy everywhere, but as I know him (actually I worked for him a few years) I trusted him.
    I look for reviews, I found several saying it’s a scam and several saying it’s not… but I couldn’t find any negative review from someone who bought the license, so I bought it.

    This is what happens…

    First, Mobe has a warranty, if you are not satisfied and make at least $1.000 after completing the 21 steps within 30 days, they will give you $500 back, but the step 6 requires buy a $2.497 license that makes you a Mobe Licence Affiliate and gives you access to the real commissions.
    When you purchase the license a coach is assigned to you and he contacts you daily, unblocking the steps by 1 or 2 every day.

    Also, there is a 1-year warranty for the license… After you pay the license, you receive the contract with a disclosure agreement and you realize the condition for the 1-year warranty requires you to prove have been promoting at least in 3 different methods the products during 12 months.

    After the purchase, you have access to the commission chart, where you learn you have to upgrade your account to Titanium in order to get the $3.300 commissions , upgrade again to Platinum to get the $5.500 and of course, upgrade again to Diamond to get the $10.000 commissions.

    The upgrades costs are: Titanium $9.999, Platinum $15.999 And Diamond $29.999
    When I was hesitant about it, my sponsor (the person who introduced me to this program) told me the license can be purchased later, is not relevant. So I got in with the $49. After that, my coach told me if I don’t get the license I’ll waste my time and energy because is too hard to make money in this way and the commissions are practically none.

    So he was honest and told me to get the license when I get the money and he’ll help me get my first 2 licenses to recover the money. (That never happened).
    Believing in my sponsor, I got the license and a second coach was assigned a more “experienced” one. This guy pushes me to buy the Titanium upgrade, I told him I did not have the money for that and he insist with new options every time I said no, saying I could pay it with several credit cards, ask for a loan in the bank, a loan with friends or family, sell my car.

    I told him the money for the license was more than enough and when I see some revenue I’ll think in reinvesting. He got upset, told me without the upgrade is a waste of time in the program and ignored me since then.

    Also, after the purchase you start to realize all the products you think you can sell, like the Masterminds, are ONLY for MOBE promoters…so, what we have left for make money (other than incorporate more people)???
    At least in Canada, Pyramidal scheme are illegal, but Mobe insist they are not pyramidal and the last answer that takes 4 month and several emails, messages, etc. was:

    “MOBE sells business training programs, with a special emphasis on internet marketing. The business model is such that customers purchase various training materials, masterminds, classes, etc. and MOBE provides those training programs.

    MOBE also has an affiliate program for those who wish to refer interested business owners to MOBE’s training. MOBE will pay a commission for any sales made. There are no incentives simply for recruiting.
    I believe your reading of the law is inaccurate.
    MOBE complies with all laws in the jurisdictions in which it does business.”
    In the government web page you can find this:

    Pyramid Selling Is a Criminal Offense
    A scheme of pyramid selling focuses primarily on generating profits by recruiting others and not from the sale of products. These schemes may offer products; however, the products may have very little value or the plan may offer limited incentives for their sale.
    Definition of a Scheme of Pyramid Selling

    Section 55.1 of the Act defines a “scheme of pyramid selling” as an MLM plan with one or more of the following features:

      requires a payment for the right to receive compensation for recruiting others into the MLM plan (compensation for recruitment);
      • requires purchases as a condition of participation (purchase requirement), other than a specified amount of product at the seller’s cost for the purpose of facilitating sales;
      • lacks a buy‑back guarantee on reasonable commercial terms or participants are not informed about the guarantee.
      It is a criminal offense to establish, operate, advertise or promote a scheme of pyramid selling.
      (http://www.competitionbureau.gc.ca/eic/site/cb-bc.nsf/eng/03799.html)

      The 3 features mentioned above are in Mobe, you require buy the program, next the license and the warranty is very tricky.
      If they are so good why is a problem a refund when you are not interested in promoting their products?

      I know I was naïve and dumb in buy this, and of course, broke and in debt (I’m a stay at home mom in a very difficult economy) but also I have values and I can’t incorporate anyone else to this and if my experience can help others to not get in the loop, I’m happy to share my story.

      Hello Nunki

      Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your experience with Mobe with everyone else here today. I’m sorry to hear that you went ahead and bought into this scheme and it breaks my heart to hear that you lost so much money on this program.

      Mobe has got to be 1 of the biggest scams that’s still floating around on the internet and there have been many other people whose experience has been similar to yours.

      It’s an absolute shame that your (so called) friend got you involved in this scheme and I wish you would have found my review, beforehand.

      Hopefully, other people who are thinking about joining this program will come here first and read about your first-hand experience and think twice about joining. It’s programs like MOBE that give internet marketing/ make money online industry a bad name.

      Thanks again for dropping by and sharing your story with everyone here today.

      It’s much appreciated!

    My letter to Mobe:

    Following a string of misleading information, misrepresentation and what I later determined to be outright lies, I was deceived into believing that MOBE offered products and services and programs that would allow me to earn considerable income.

    I initially attended a seminar in March 2016 in Toronto, Canada, delivered by Raymond Aaron. While initially intrigued, I was persuaded that I had to “invest” more money in a licensing program in order to continue my “training”. I was convinced to pay an additional $2,497 USD.
    On May 10, 2016, I was asked to “assist” at a life event in Toronto and there duped into upgrading to “Titanium” to be fully positioned to earn money and to have access to a coach in order to be successful. I paid a further $13,717.55 at the seminar to upgrade and continued to follow MOBE’s direction to buy more software as well as online traffic.
    Soon thereafter, my “coach” told him me that I had to spend a further $5,000 to buy more traffic to get stats to analyse my business. Your representatives took advantage of a trusting but unsophisticated individual as to lure me into believing this was something more than a scam or perhaps Ponzi scheme. After spending more than $18,000, I realized that MOBE offers no product of any real value, and that I was being groomed to re sell the same scam to other victims.

    Matt Lloyd and co. took my money and ran. I am now full aware I am not alone, $1997 may not seem like a lot to the millionaire running this pyramid but to me this was every last bit of my savings.

    MOBE stole my money, they offer a refund and won’t give it back. I warn each and every person thinking of this to run the other way. I wish I did, I would be able to afford my rent this month if I did. I am coming for you MOBE, you better bet I am contacting my local politicians to let them know about your little fraud circle you are running.

      Hi Bryan,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you were scammed by MOBE and that you wasted the last of your savings on this Ponzi Scheme. Like you, I also had to learn the hard way and was a victim to Matt Lloyd’s scheme that he’s running so I know how you must feel about now. Besides contacting their support team, I would also contact your credit card company and dispute these charges with them. If you catch it fast enough chances are, they can put a stop payment on the transaction and refund the money back to your account.

      If that doesn’t work then I would file a lawsuit and take them to court over this. It makes me sick that people like Matt Lloyd feed on the ignorance of other people who desperately are interested in making money online. I know you may be thinking that all hope is lost at this point, but I have some wonderful news for you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel Bryan.

      If you are looking for an honest and safe place to learn how online marketing works that won’t charge you an arm and a leg to get started I would highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate. I wish I would have found them before I got mixed up in MOBE and ended up wasting my hard earned money. You can actually get started for Free and test drive everything they have to offer before making a decision to invest in their premium training.

      I really do want to thank you for stopping by Bryan and sharing your experience you have had with MOBE with everyone here. It will help other people avoid making the same mistake as you and I have already made.

      Cheers

      Sorry to learn about these con artists stealing your money, Bryan.
      I got suckered in (MY fault)for only the $49. Right away as soon
      as the $49 was paid, I was deluged with countless spam emails from
      other “affiliates” trying to sell me the same thing! Even yesterday,
      Thanksgiving, I got 14 spam emails from these thieves. I have now
      blocked them and had my credit card re-issued so they cannot get
      another cent from me. I quickly got he message when I set up the
      initial phone conversation with my “expert” tutor, but he failed
      to connect with me at the time HE stipulated. I knew right then
      this was a total scam. The only way to stop this Matt Lloyd is to
      have a class action law suit filed against them. Our government
      will do NOTHING to help.

    I paid $49 to join MTTB on October 7, 2015 and up to this day, I have not heard from them. I got an e-mail with receipt for my $49, and is assigned a mentor name Larry Crisp. I was told to call Larry Crisp for instruction, which I did. I got an answering machine and left a message. No one call me back yet. I have made three calls to date and no one call me back yet. After I read your article, I am convince this company is not what it says it is. I want my money back. I am trying to reach them to get my refund but can not get direct contact. Please help Scott, I will appreciate it. Thanks, James

      Hi James,

      I’m sorry to hear that you have fallen victim to MOBE and that you were scammed out of $49. As far as receiving a refund, I would contact their support team and request a refund. I would tell you to hit up their facebook page as well, but they haven’t posted on there or had any activity going on there for almost a year now so this would be a waste of time.

      Here’s the direct link to their support where you can request a refund. All I have to say is good luck cause I saw that many other people were leaving comments on their page requesting a refund as well with no luck. I wish I could be of more help to you James about this and I hope you are able to get your $49 refunded.

      I do want to thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience with everyone here that you’ve had with MOBE. This will help other people avoid becoming their next victim and save them lots of money.

    Hi Scott,

    First and foremost, thank you for this page and your reviews. I am NOT a member of MOBE. Never will be. I did, however, research quite a bit on this program. I just have this habit of searching for reviews of programs before even thinking about paying into it. I have been online some 16 years and Lord only knows what I have seen. I always maintained that the internet could have been a wonderful marketplace for business. There is a lot of money and people could make a lot of money.Sadly, over the years, it has been and still is to date infested with schemes and scams thanks to those with no ethics and definitely no scruples. Makes me wonder how they go to sleep at night knowing all they did all day was scam and lie and cheat people. I guess they have never heard of Karma!

    I always say “Tis not man that makes counterfeit money, tis money that makes the counterfeit man’. So very true as you see how people are driven by pure greed, they lose their souls.

    There is a large percentage of people looking to make money online not because they have nothing better to do. They need supplement income even if it is a few hundreds a month. To people with tight budgets, it helps keep their heads above water. It pays a few bills. I think it is very bold of MOBE to dare charge people in the thousands for licensing fees. Does the average Joe looking for income supplement online have $2k to toss into some program which they already paid $49 to get a sniff? It is totally unrealistic and to call them scams is putting it mildly compared to the amount of people they hurt being scammed of their money.

    In 16 years, I find that 99% of the programs fail to mention one thing > the most important feature of the program or the system > where you need to fork out more money. There is enough crap and corn on the net to fill up all our landfills. Honesty has gone down the toilet. Trust was a thing of the past. Red Flags pop up all over the place thank goodness. Please know that reviews like yours save a lot of people. People with hard earned money.

    I am sure there are genuine programs out there that help one make money without having to invest an arm, a leg and their first born! Though nowadays they are few and far between.

      Hi Adrienne,

      You are most welcome and I’m so glad that you did your due diligence and did your research on MOBE before joining. I’m also glad that you were able to find my review and that I was able to save you from wasting your hard earned money on this scam. It sounds like you have been online for quite some time (Nearly as long as Internet marketing has been around which is 19 years)

      I bet you have seen quite a bit in 16 years and I do have to agree with you that the internet is one of the best marketplaces to do business and make lots of money. It’s really sad that programs like MOBE have given Internet marketing a bad name and it’s a shame that these IM gurus would rather make a dishonest living by preying on people’s ignorance, instead of helping them out and showing them the real way to start an online business.

      I have also wondered how these people could sleep at night as well, and trust me Karma will get them in the end. There are over 2 billion people online each and every day that are spending money and looking for ways to make money online. Let’s face it, we all need money to pay bills, supplement their income and keep their head above water like you have already mentioned.

      I had the same thoughts as you when I found out that Matt Lloyd had the nerve to charge you $2k just in order to gain access to the rights to promote this crap to other people in hopes that you may make some money with it. I don’t know of anyone looking to make money online that has $2k just sitting around. If they did have that kind of money just sitting around, I don’t think they would be looking to make money online in the first place. Don’t you agree?

      It’s programs like this that have given the internet a bad name and anything associated with work from home or making money online they automatically think it’s a scam and with good reason.

      It’s sad but true that around 99% of make money online programs were created for 1 reason and that’s to make the owner lots of money and leave you broke and wanting more information. Fortunately, there are a few places online that are legit and are willing to show you how online business works and take you by the hand and show you how to build a very profitable business step by step in the online world.

      One of them is Wealthy Affiliate! Not only do they walk you through how to setup your very own website and start building a solid foundation for your business, they also let you get started for FREE. How cool is that? This is something that you just won’t find anywhere in the Internet marketing industry and there’s a very good reason for it.

      It’s because they truly do care about helping you become successful and they aren’t out to take your money and leave you empty handed like 99% of other companies online. Obviously you have a strong desire to make money online since you are here reading this review and wondering if it’s legit or not.

      If you are serious about making money online then I think you owe it to yourself to at least check them out and see what they can do for you. I will be there to help you out and answer any questions you may have as well as get you started down the right path. I really am looking forward to working with you Adrienne and helping you in any way I possibly can.

      I want to thank you for stopping by and letting me know how much this review has helped you out and sharing your feedback with everyone here today.

      To your success online
      Your Friend, Scott

        I have been on the internet since it’s inception, way
        longer than most of you have been alive! MOBE is one of
        the biggest scams out there. Yes, there are some people who
        expect to make millions while sitting by the pool, but
        there are far more people who are not afraid to get out
        there and actually work at an on-line business. You
        mentioned Wealthy Affiliate. I have tried – and paid –
        people online to set up a website, with zero success.
        I finally found a local HS kid who did it for me in one
        day, for $100, versus $1,500 to $6,000 from “professionals”
        The internet now is mostly 90% scam artists looking to fleece the flock. I make a few hundred dollars a month
        on Ebay which, by no means perfect, sure beats scammers
        like Matt Lloyd! But at least on Ebay my products – real
        products, not MLM scams – Ebay exposes millions of people
        around the world to my products, producing more than
        60,000 sales over the last five years. You CAN make
        money on the internet, but not in the millions “guaranteed”
        by scam artists like MOBE!

          Hi Brian,

          It sounds like you have been online for quite some time now and it sounds like you can spot a scam from a mile away. I agree with you that MOBE has got to be one of the biggest scams that I have ever reviewed in the 3 years that I have been involved in internet marketing. Like you, I have also made hundreds of dollars selling stuff on Ebay myself. This was a great starting point for me to get myself established online and get some extra cash coming in.

          However, I found that it’s not a steady income and as soon as I ran out of my own products to sell, the money stopped coming in. I can totally relate to you trying and trying to set up a website with zero success, because I had tried for years with no luck as well. It wasn’t until I found Wealthy Affiliate that I was able to find out what I had been doing wrong all those years and learn the right way to start building a business online.

          If you would like to learn the right way to build an online business I would suggest that you check them out but this decision is up to you Bryan. I really do want to thank you for stopping by Brian and chiming in on this discussion today.

          Cheers

    I can assure you Matt Lloyd’s businesses techniques are fraudulent. I started getting a charge on my credit card statement saying I was being charged a fee for something I didn’t even purchase or participated in. I checked the phone number with the account lurchase and it was attached to Matt Lloyd’s scam businesses. When I called to rectify the charge on my bill they refused a reimbursement of the charges. This is a monthly recurring charge for some kind of training which was unauthorized as well as unwanted!! Please be warned

    Can you advise if the mobe book my online sales machine is anyway worth buying it’s not just matt Lloyd its another author too also i know someone who had no confidence he has his own .tv and he says he’s making money he wants me to download this book but I’m sceptical?

      Hi Enricka,

      I haven’t personally heard of my online sales machine myself, but if this is associated with MOBE or Matt Lloyd in any way I would stay away from it. This person who is trying to get you to download the book is probably an affiliate and they may be making money. Keep in mind though that just because they’re making money doesn’t mean that the program is legit.

      I would be extremely skeptical about anything associated with Mobe and would think twice before investing in anything they have to offer. If the book is free to download you could do that just to see what its all about, but I wouldn’t invest any money into it.

      Mobe is nothing but 1 huge Ponzi scheme and I honestly can’t recommend this to anyone. If you are looking for a legitimate way to build an online business doing something you are passionate about and learning a new skill, I encourage you to check out Wealthy Affiliate. This is an online training center that offers in depth and step by step training on how to build a website around your hobbies and learn how to drive traffic to it.

      They even have a starter membership that comes with 2 free websites, a keyword research tool, and your first 10 certification lessons and it’s FREE to get started. This way you get the opportunity to try everything they have to offer without risking any money up front. I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your starter membership to see if this is something you would enjoy doing before you invest in their premium services.

      I really hope this has helped you out Enricka and has guided you in the right direction as to legitimate places that teach you how to make money online. If you have any other questions or if I can help you out in any way please let me know.

      Cheers

    Hi Scott

    Just like you and Carrie and many more people (victims) I tried MOBE 3 months ago for the easy $49 and then suddenly somewhere in the 6th or 7th step of MTTB coaching …. please UPgrade it is only $2000.Of course I run to the hills when I read that message.

    I really have to say this is one of the most Dishonest Companies out there , a company that only making an EMPIRE for the owner and the chief members that stay on the TOP of this Illegal Pyramid.

    But when it Collapses will pull them all down , I hope only a few people fall for the Hype of $2000 but as I can see overall in internet reviews there are some that lost $10000 or more.

    The fancy videos , the beautiful illustrations , the soft voice of Matt makes the difference and like a spider web attracts online visitors that have no clue what is going on behind the scenes.

    Excellent review..!

      Hi there,

      Yes it’s sad that people like you and I fall for schemes like MOBE when looking for a way to build an online business. I can’t believe that they charge this $49 application fee and then tell you that you have to qualify before you can move on. This is one of the biggest Ponzi schemes I’ve seen in a long time.

      That $2k so called “Licensing fee” is just another fancy name for a Ponzi and that’s basically what you are getting yourself into when you pay this $2k licensing fee. I agree with you that this has got to be one of the worst and most expensive and dishonest companies in the internet marketing industry.

      Unfortunately, people probably pay for this ridiculous “licensing fee” all the time because they don’t know any better. Programs setup like this is built for one reason and that’s to prey off newbies who don’t know any better and lots of them actually think that they need these upsells to make money online so they invest into them foolishly.

      There are comments from people here who has lost $30,000 or more with this program and this pisses me off. I really do want to thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience you’ve had with MOBE with everyone here. I’m sure it will help other people avoid schemes like this and hopefully get them pointed in the right direction.

      Cheers,

    I last my full-time job on 4-24/15 and I was searching online for local jobs in my area that’s currently hiring. This link came up and I clicked on it and joined for $47 (MOBE). I looked them up online and all I seen was Matt Loyd’s video’s and no reviews. I got through step 6 and at that time it asked me to pay $1997 to get license to sell products.

    Just getting told to resign from my full-time job and working a Part-time job of only 20 hours per week, I don’t have the money for that. Not to mention when my monthly bills are $2000 and you have over 100K in debt already, I really don’t don’t have the money for that.

    To make a long story short, I found a way to get the $1997 and made a credit card payment so I can try this program out and see if it REALLY WORKS or NOT. My coach called me and we went pay for the licensing and come to found out they credit card company is NOT accepted by MOBE. In the meantime, I have completed steps 1-10 and can’t go any further until I make that $1997 purchase. My coach wanted me to THINK about it and see if I could come up with a solution over the weekend to make my purchase.

    I told him my situation and all he could say, is go back and review the steps 1-6 and keep me posted. He went as far as telling me to call my credit card company and having them reverse the payment and he could do a wire-transfer since I didn’t have a debit card. I got to thinking, is this a sign coming from god that this is a SCAM. So, I looked MODE up again and here I am reading all the reviews. I think NOW I’m convinced that this is a “TO GOOD TO BE TRUE” opportunity that almost cost me money I didn’t have.
    I want to thank ALL OF YOU for SAVING me MONEY.

      Hi Carrie,

      Yea it’s sad that schemes like MOBE are starting to show up in the local job listings now. This should tell you that they are willing to do just about anything to get people to buy into their scheme and rob you of your hard earned money. You have to look long and hard to find any honest reviews about this program as Matt Lloyd’s got everyone and his brother promoting it.

      That’s when I stopped as well after I reached step 6 where he actually expects you to fork over around $2k just to continue with his program. Nobody should have to pay that much money just to learn how to make money online. Especially, when you can literally get started for Free and gain access to all the tools and training you need to build an online business with Wealthy Affiliate.

      If you seriously are looking for a proven training program that teaches you the real way to build an online business, I think you owe it to yourself to check out everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer you. The best part is that you can get started for free so you have a chance to see what its all about and decide for yourself if it’s worth investing in.

      I can totally relate to you not having the extra money to invest in a program that your not even sure if it’s legit or not. To be honest with you, If Matt Lloyd truly believed in his system, then there’s NO reason why you shouldn’t be able to try it out risk free, before you invested any money into it. I’m so glad to hear that your credit card wasn’t excepted by MOBE and that the transaction didn’t go through. As soon as he asked you to ask your credit card company to reverse the payment this should have raised up lots of red flags for you. I’m glad that you started thinking about this and that you were led to my review.

      Thank you so much for sharing your story with everyone here Carrie. This will really help other people out and warn them to stay away from this scam and save them lots of money as well. You are most welcome and I’m glad I was able to save you lots of money and prevent you from being MOBE’s next victim.

    I was just on FB talking about how I have been selling as an affiliate for Amazon for 10 years now. Someone jumped on and mentioned I should check out MOBE….lol
    I knew what was up, but just to be sure I googled it and found this post and my suspicions were right. They make everything sound so good in their sales video and I can see how people fall for this. They must spend a ton of that $$ on Good copywriters who know how to suck people in!
    I am going to share this post on my FB so that other people will know the truth about this program.

    Thanks for sharing this with everyone and keep up the great work you are doing here!

      Hi TDG,

      Yes unfortunately, this Ponzi Scheme gets spammed all over FB and many other social media platforms. I’m glad that you did your due diligence and researched it before you become Mobe’s next victim. I agree with you that their sales video draws you in and is so convincing and this is why so many people fall for scams like this.

      Luckily, I didn’t waste much of my time or money with MOBE and I was able to use my better judgement and read through the lines. There are much better alternatives and honest ways to learn how to start an online business than this. I really do want to thank you for stopping by TDG and sharing this with everyone here today.

        Scott, while I appreciate your attempts to show MOBE as
        a total scam, the fact is that it really accomplishes very
        little in the way of shutting down such venues. It seems
        to me that there MUST be a few hungry lawyers out there
        that would tackle MOBE head-on with a class-action suit.
        There appears to be hundreds of thousands of people taken
        in by MOBE, and there is not a jury in the world that would
        not nail them to the wall. Have you considered this line
        of action at all?

          Hi Brian,

          As much as I would love to bring justice to MOBE and shut these scumbags down, I’m afraid that there is very little I can do to accomplish this. If I had personally gone past step 6 of MTTB and purchased their “licensing rights” then I probably would be seeking out some of these hungry lawyers and presenting them with my case.

          However, since I didn’t then I feel that the best thing I can do to help other people like yourself avoid falling for this Ponzi scheme and wasting their hard earned money is to write this review. Most people always search for reviews online before making any drastic decisions and I can only hope that they find my review before it’s too late.

          Out of all the people who have been scammed by MOBE you would think someone would file a lawsuit against them. Anyway, I do want to thank you for stopping by Brian and sharing your thoughts with everyone here today regarding MOBE. It’s really appreciated man!

    Hello,I joined MTTB. Thought great a way to earn money myself.Untill I got to step 6 and then find out you had to pay a lot of money to carry on. What A Ripoff!

      Hi Wendy,

      I thought the same thing when I joined MTTB but found out really quickly that this was just another program designed to take your money and leave you broke. Anyone who charges $2K just for you to unlock more lessons and gain access to their affiliate program is nothing but a Ponzi scheme.

      I can totally relate to you needing something you can work on no matter what the weather is like as I used to have a job where I would be outside most of the time. I’m proud to tell you that Wealthy Affiliate is the place that’s responsible for me being able to work from home now and be able to quit my full time job. I would definitely recommend that you check them out and see what they can do for you.

      You can get started for FREE and experience for yourself if this is something you would be interested in doing without risking any money.

      Thank you so much for stopping by Wendy and sharing your experience with MTTB with everyone here and I’m so glad I was able to save you from getting scammed by this company and save you lots of money.

        Hi Scott,

        A guy called Mark who must have bought his way into the Diamond MOBE program because he can afford to(probably as a result of misleading others!!) tried to sell the idea to me but I was forewarned because of his other shady business models. But his record on offering business opportunities is not great!!!.

        His list of flops so far since he was thrown out of the last MLM in 2010 for recruiting them into other schemes include:- Shopping Genie(went bust), Matcha Magic(selling green tea and other overpriced health products), Numis Coins(merged with a travel company selling overpriced collectable coins 3 times more expensive than normal bullion coins.), ISN(again a coin business selling overpriced coins) Rippln(he promoted this as the next facebook revolution but that died a death!!), and now MOBE which will eventually suffer the same fate as all the others when they run out of people to scam because of all the negative reviews online.

        He managed in a short space of time to get to a Diamond mastermind (costs $30,000 not to mention all the other upsels he would have had to buy) which is a holiday really disguised as a business trip which no doubt has been paid for by all those unsuspecting people buying into it thinking they can get there too if you have $30,000 to spend.

        There are some out there that wish to take advantage of peoples desire to succeed by coaxing them into schemes that require alot of money to promote, they are called parasites usually rich parasites feeding off the desires of those less well off than themselves. The only route to success and wealth is by legitimate means and offering something of real value.
        These schemes are ok for those who already have money but they need the gullible to join in the first place for them to make money. My issue is they promote these schemes as low cost start up as a sweetener to get you in then later find you have to purchase expensive upsells to progress through the program. It’s only by others experiencing this terrible fate it warns others not to join.

        I don’t know how these Parasites live with themselves they act like they are offering a genuine service and product they must be delusional and have no scruples. Thanks for exposing this scam luckily I avoided joining due to the person that tried to recruit me already had a shady record in offering opportunities, alas others have not been so lucky and had to part with their hard earned cash first.

          Hi Paul,

          I had no idea that Mark has had so many failed businesses in the past and it sounds like he’s got a pretty shady background as well. I have always said it’s only a matter of time before scams like MOBE get shut down by the FTC. The fact that most of these schemes are located out of the United States and that’s usually the main reason why they’re able to stay off the radar for so long.

          I just don’t see why anyone would even think about investing $30,000 into a program like this when they aren’t even sure if it works or if its a scam or not. This would be an awful expensive business trip to have to pay for up front especially since there are much cheaper options available to you. Anyone who’s OK with deceiving other people and lying to them just to earn a living is a parasite in my book and I totally agree with you. The way these rich parasites have got to be rich is by like you said feeding off the people less fortunate than they are.

          I 100% agree with you that the only true way to have lots of success is by legitimate means and a proven system that provides lots of value. I also have a huge issue with companies who use the hook and bait strategy to draw you in at a low cost.

          Once they get you inside you get hit with at least 10 upsells in the first few minutes. This is one of the oldest marketing strategies out there and something that lots of people fall victim to on a daily basis. I don’t know how they can live with themselves either. They must not care about who they take advantage of as long as they are making money.

          Another thing I hate about internet marketing scams like this one is that they give the internet marketing industry a bad name and that’s why when most people hear about any make money online programs they naturally think it’s a scam.

          That’s the thing they act like they are offering a genuine service because they feed off the fact that lots of people have no idea of how internet marketing works so they are gullible enough to fall right into their trap. I’m so glad this review has helped you out Paul and that you were smart enough not to fall for this scam.

          Unfortunately, other people haven’t been quite so lucky and they have been a victim of MOBE and lost lots of money with them. If you are seriously looking for a proven system that works and will provide you with everything you need to get an online business started without risking any money up front then I think you should definitely check out Wealthy Affiliate.

          I really do want to thank you for stopping by Paul and sharing your experience you’ve had with MOBE here with everyone today. This will greatly help other people avoid losing their hard earned money to this program.

      Hi Susan,

      You can get started for $0 and check out everything WA has to offer you before you decide if this is something you want to invest in. You can gain access to your first month of the premium membership at an unbelievable discount of 59%. This comes out to only $19 compared to the normal monthly price of $47. After your first month, you will unlock a special discounted yearly membership price of only $359 for the whole year.

      This comes out to only 98 cents a day and this is an incredible value if you can afford it. This is a $200 savings over the monthly price of $47 a month. Other than that the monthly membership is $47 a month. I know exactly how you feel about being lied to about the price and being hit with a bunch of extra fees after you join. This has happened to me numerous times in the past.

      I can assure you that you won’t find any hidden fees or any upsells at WA. I have been there for over 2 years now and I’m making really good money with them. I would suggest that you sign up for your FREE account here and experience everything that WA can do for you and then make the decision if you would like to invest in it or not.

      I really am looking forward to working with you Susan and helping you build an online business. If you have any other questions or need help with anything please let me know.

      Hi Nicole,

      I’m sorry to hear that you got ripped off by MOBE and my heart goes out to you. I would contact their support team and tell them you aren’t satisfied and you want a full refund. Even though, I’m not sure if they will answer you back or not it’s at least worth a try. You could also try sending them an email to the address they have listed on their contact page as well.

      If none of this works then I’m not exactly sure what else to tell you. I hope you haven’t bought into their more expensive packages and have only bought their basic package. By this time, You may be wondering if there really are any legit programs out there that show you how to start an online business the right way and don’t offer you a bunch of empty promises.

      I would suggest you give Wealthy Affiliate a try and check out everything they have to offer. There’s step by step training on how to start an online business and the best thing about it is you can get started for FREE.In the 2 years I have been with them I have managed to start up my own company and work from the comfort of my home, or wherever I have an internet connection all thanks to the awesome training at WA.

      I will also be there to help you out and guide you every step of the way if you have any questions or need my help. That’s something that MOBE doesn’t offer. I really am looking forward to working with you Nicole and helping you get up and rolling online.

      I hope to talk to you soon

      Hi Nicole,

      I also joined and am trying to get my money back. I’ve contacted Matt Lloyd personally on Facebook, as well as contacted their support. I will also contact my bank and report MOBE to the Better Business Burea

        Hi Jade,

        I’m so sorry to hear that you got scammed by Mobe and I hope that you can get your money back from them. I hope you only signed up for the $49 membership package and not the $1997.00 business package.

        Good luck on getting a response from Matt himself. If you even get a reply back at all, it will likely be an automated message and not from a real person.

        It’s a shame that programs like MOBE exist because it gives the internet marketing/ make money online industry a bad name. If you truly are looking for a real opportunity to start an online business I would highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate. You can actually get started for FREE and gain access to all the training and tools you need to get up and running.

        I will also be there to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you have when you first get started and clear up any confusion you may have.

        I really am looking forward to working with you Jade and I do want to thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience with everyone here. This will help other people from falling victim to this and save them a ton of money.

        Cheers,

      Hi Khalif,

      I’m so glad this review has helped you out and saved you from being ripped off from MOBE. This is one of the biggest pyramid schemes that I have seen in quite some time and you aren’t going to know anymore about making money online than you did before. You will actually be more confused. If you are still looking for an honest and real way to get started making money online I can hook you up and get you started for FREE.

      Wealthy Affiliate is where I got my start and I have been making a full-time income for over 2 years now by following their program. I would highly suggest that you check them out and sign up for your free account. I will be there to help you out and get you started. If you have any questions or need my help with anything let me know.

      I want to thank you so much for stopping by Khalif and letting me know how much this review has helped you. I look forward to working with you and helping you out in any way I can.

    I am sorry to disappoint everybody, but instead of shouting around “be careful for a scam” and just promoting your business, maybe you check seriously MOBE?
    After 11 months with MOBE I personally can certify that there is no relation between MOBE and scam! People prefer always to find excuses instead of searching for a way to succeed in the business they are in! It is coming from a frustration of not making money. And it is always the same people who shout scam! I personally feel sorry for them!

      Hi Dany,

      I’m sorry that you have got your blinders on and you can’t tell the difference between a legitimate opportunity and a scam. I have done in depth research on MOBE and I can clearly say it’s a scam. The only reason I can think of that you would disagree with me about MOBE would be the fact that you are making money with them. Just because you are making money with a company doesn’t necessarily mean they are legit. People make money with Empower Network but does that mean they aren’t a scam?

      I will tell you the problem with people shouting scam. It’s because people are fed up with programs that are setup like this one and they are getting tired of these gurus filling their head with false promises that you can make 1,000’s in 24 hours or less. The reality of having an online business is that it takes lots of hard work, dedication and motivation to be successful online.

      There is NO push button system out there that will make you rich. I’m in no way trying to promote my business. I’m simply warning people of make money online schemes out there and showing them a safe and honest place to learn how online business works.

      I really do feel sorry for you and all the other people you are getting involved in this scheme. I hope that someday you will take the blinders off and realize what you have gotten yourself into. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your opinion with everyone here Dany.

        Just by giving the words “safe and honest place” a direct way to your business and giving yourself almost five out of five stars, shows me I am right about what I am writing! the only thing I agree with you is “The reality of having an online business is that it takes lots of hard work, dedication and motivation to be successful online” and I am working hard cause it is important to me, so I always find a way and not excuses!!
        Finally I think your head should be like a parachute!! Always open for new ideas and opportunities!! Your Parachute seems to be more closed than open! Sorry!!

          Hey Dany,

          I think I need to put a few things into perspective for you. Number one this isn’t my business as I’m just an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate and I happen to be an online marketer who actually cares about my visitors who come here looking for the truth about schemes like this one. Along with many others that’s setup in the same way.

          The reason why I have given them such a high rating is…. In the 20 years that I have been searching for a legitimate way to learn how online business works. Wealthy Affiliate is the only place that has actually shown me how to do this and they wasn’t just out to get my money and leave me high and dry like the majority of make money online programs do. I’m always open to new ideas and other ways to grow my income stream. I’m interested in building businesses though not in joining schemes that are focused on taking your hard earned money and not providing you with any value.

          It looks like you are thinking the wrong way Dany and you are the one that needs to open your parachute. I do thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with everyone here on this. I hope that you wake up one of these days and discover the right way to build an online business.

    Good write up.

    A few days ago one of my Facebook groups had this business being posted within, based on a Home Business Summit being run in London over a weekend in December 2015. They are charging $297 to attend.

    I was immediately concerned not all was being revealed and a quick search threw up your page.

    It looked very much like Empower Network, and I had been avid in suggesting it was a scam, and it seems you share that view too.

    So well done for writing this, now how do I go about getting their three day conference cancelled and saving people their money? Any suggestions?

      Hi Laurence,

      I’m glad you decided to do a search on MOBE and that you landed here on my review page. This program is setup a lot like Empower Network which is another pyramid scheme.

      As far as getting the conference cancelled I hope you didn’t pay the $297 entrance fee. If you did already pay the fee I would be contacting their support team and try and get your money back. If you haven’t paid for it then I wouldn’t even worry about cancelling it just don’t attend. There are much better alternatives to schemes like this one. If you are looking for an honest and totally legit place to learn how internet marketing works I would suggest that you check out Wealthy Affiliate.

      They are the reason why I have been so successful online and I owe them everything. You can get started for FREE and check out everything they have to offer with absolutely NO RISK. I will also be there to help you out Laurence and guild you every step of the way once you join. I really do want to thank you for stopping by Laurence and sharing your experience with MOBE with everyone here. I’m looking forward to working with you Laurence and I will talk to you soon.

        Hi Scott,

        thanks for your response.

        I had not invested in the seminar, so no loss to me. Nor was I intending to go along.

        I am however a leader in a network marketing business – just over 17 years.

        Whilst I am not directly seeking additional income streams, I do however already monetise my own list through other schemes as an affiliate marketer.

        So look at Joint Ventures on a regular basis with UK based promoters.

        Will pop back here from time to time.

    Hi there,

    I’ve been searching around for a legitimate business model since 2005. I don’t get scammed often, I do my due diligence in research, that’s how I came here,researching MOBE, but yes, I almost got scammed and luckily got refunded, not with MOBE, but with some other program that is just as devious in their marketing.

    WA, I’ve been a member of! However, having a job, kids and responsibilities I ended up paying a monthly fee without having the time to use it. A few yrs later, this year by the way I opted to go the free route via Wealthy Affiliate. Great lessons I must say, when I actually took the time.. However, one also doesn’t get to put those 2 websites up/live without upgrading to become a member. So it is a bit of a tease, but a good one because WA is the real deal, period and anyone who is promoting it deserves to get a commission for it. its about one of the very few REAL online training programs out there, with a community so friendly and ready to help one another.

    About MOBE, thank you for. Your very thorough review, job well done in exposing this scam. May you receive lots of commissions promoting WA 🙂

      Hi Sally,

      I’m glad that you do your diligence and research every opportunity before you get involved with them. I’m also glad that this review has helped you avoid being scammed by MOBE, and has saved you lots of money. As many times as I have been ripped off and scammed from companies setup just like MOBE. I feel that it’s my job to warn everyone about them, and show them a REAL place to get started learning the basics of affiliate marketing at NO COST.

      I can totally relate to having a job kids and responsibilities and understand that life gets in the way when we are trying to build a brighter future for our families. Starting an online business does take lots of time, hard work and dedication. It’s definitely worth it tho and I wouldn’t trade it for any other job out there.

      I’m not sure what you mean by your websites aren’t live. When you join as a free member you get 2 free websites which will be live the minute you create them. You don’t have to be premium for these websites to work. I know several free members whose sites are live and they are getting a great amount of traffic to them.

      I agree with you 100% about WA being one of the best online training programs available online. I do want to thank you for stopping by Sally and sharing your experience with everyone here. If I can help you out in any way please let me know.

    How can you possibly give a unbiased look into a program whilst bashing another program. I am not defending what so ever as it all seems a bit dodgy shall we say..For the life of me I am yet to ascertain what he does or what he sells.

      Hi Brian,

      I reviews make money online programs to see if they are worth your hard earned money or not. About 90% of all internet marketing programs out there are scams and it’s my job to protect you from these programs. The whole idea here isn’t to bash other companies. It’s to warn other people about schemes like MOBE and show them an honest and legit place to learn how to make money online

      What he’s selling is his 21 step plan to making huge commissions from selling his rehashed and overpriced program to other people.It’s a ponzi sheme and one of the worst I have seen in quite some time. If you are interested in learning how online business works I would highly recommend checking into Wealthy Affiliate. They have all the tools, training and help and support you need to run a highly successful business online.

      I’m so sorry to hear that you got scammed by these vultures Jamie. I wish you would have came here and researched this opportunity before falling for their lies. You shouldn’t feel bad though because this kind of thing happens yo everyone at some time or another. I know I have fallen for a multitude of scams in my day and it does make you feel like a failure.

      As far as getting your money back I would contact their support team and tell them you want a full refund.I know that you must be thinking that just about everything related to making money online is a scam. I felt the same way, but finally I found a legitimate company that actually cares about helping you succeed online. Wealthy Affiliate is the place that has helped me build an online business and showed me how to make an honest living from home.

      In the close to 2 years I have been with them I have had incredible results going through their training program. I would highly suggest that you check them out as well and sign up for your FREE starter membership. I will also be there to help you out every step of the way and show you how to get started.

      I’m really glad that you stopped by Jamie and shared your MOBE experience with everyone here. I hope this will help other people to avoid this scam. I really am looking forward to working with you and showing you how to get an online business setup and up and running.

    Your review is about the same wording as the founder and owner of Wealthy Affiliate ,Kyle.
    I have also noticed that every reply you’ve done here has a link to W A,s sales page,giving you a commission if people sign up.The only difference between the two there, is that the price is not the same as MOBE.
    You have to invest in any business to get a return!Its basic business knowledge.Buy something at a price and sell it for a profit,usually as much as possible.It will sell if theirs a market for it.
    Wealthy Affiliate charges you, to teach you how to build a web site too then tell others about how to buy into Wealthy Affiliate and be taught how to do the same.!!THAT’S WHAT YOUR PROMOTING.Just look at the links below.You get a smaller return for a smaller outlay.
    I am not a member of MOBE,but every negative review seems to be coming from a Wealthy affiliate members with a link to there site.Seems that you WA members are just knocking the competition.
    From what I’ve seen at W A,its an expensive way for some (not all) lonely people to enter a chat room.

      Hi Alan,
      The whole purpose of these reviews is to help people avoid being scammed by all of these pyramid schemes like MOBE. I then show them a safe and legitimate place that teaches you how online business works. The best part about all of this is ANYONE can get started for FREE!

      There’s no $49 application fee and NO waiting period to see if you are accepted or not. It really is FREE to get started. Unlike MOBE that charges you a application fee just to get in the door. After you have done a few lessons, you get hit with a $2K licensing fee if you want to continue. Even though Matt makes it very clear that you will only be paying this 1 time application fee.

      This has got to be one of the biggest pyramid schemes that I have ever seen, and I am trying to warn people to stay away from it. You say your not a member of MOBE, but you sure seem to be defending them. Most people who get into these pyramid schemes feel like they have to defend their purchases, even though they know what they are doing is unethical. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I am only presenting the facts here, it’s up to you if you want to accept them or not.

      The links that you see in the comments are not to a sales page. They are to other helpful pages that give you more information on a particular topic. I really do wish you would get your facts straight before you come here thinking you know it all. The great thing about WA is that you never have to invest anything if you don’t want to. It’s possible to make money with the Free account but just a lot harder.

      WA is an educational training center that teaches you how to start a business online. They give you access to thousands of training tutorials and courses to get you started all for Free. I don’t see how that is expensive at all. Even if you decided to sign up for the premium membership, it’s only going to cost you $19 your first month. If you would care to explain what you are talking about here I would love to hear it.

      With WA the only thing you are buying into is an education in online marketing.

      With MOBE you are buying into a pyramid scheme and basically selling other people thin air. There’s NO education whatsoever.

      I wish you lots of luck in your online ventures and I hope that someday you wake up and learn the right way to run a business.

Whenever you start to look for an online opportunity you need to do lots of research before you can decide which one has the best value and also make sure it’s not a scam. I agree that if you are being asked to pay $100 and up it’s a scam. I would much rather show people a way to get started for free and help them build their business.

    You guys are jerks. I’m sure you won’t allow this dissent to be published, but I am happily with MOBE for the last 6+ months.

    First of all, you are 100% WRONG. You are NOT stopped at step 6 and denied from moving forward. You are stopped at step 6 to TALK TO A COACH about strategizing how and/or when you might become a licensee. If you choose NOT to? You are then moved on to step 7, and given access to the remaining 21 steps!!!

    After you complete the 21 steps, you are then given a free “30 day traffic” program to promote MOBE’s products AS AN AFFILIATE FOR NO ADDITIONAL FEE OR MONEY. But you wouldn’t know that now, would you? Because you and your knee-jerk reaction wants to find something to whine about the first obstacle you perceive.

    MOBE has over 40 products, and as a standard and FREE Affiliate, you have the opportunity to promote 95% of them. You simply can’t promote the 3 or 4 HIGH TICKET ones without investing in them!

    Let me ask you this: When, in your entire life, have you ever found a high ticket program to promote, without having to INVEST in high ticket???

    Lastly, the High Ticket Programs are a PRODUCT that involves Matt Lloyd paying for ALL EXPENSES to a 3 and 5 day event. He pays for your hotel, your food, your drinks, alcohol, and even your entertainment, as well as having the biggest names in Internet marketing in the entire WORLD there to teach students.

    But you don’t care about those pesky little FACTS now, do you? You guys are going to be lucky if you aren’t soon receiving a letter from Matt’s legal team.

      Hi there,
      I’m sorry to hear that you have been brainwashed by Matt and you have fallen for his dishonest marketing tactics. I’m sure that you aren’t aware of this but, you are 1 of the thousands of other people who are keeping this ponzi scheme running and responsible for people losing thousands of dollars on this scheme.

      I’m not trying to make you feel bad, just simply trying to get you to wake up and realize that what you are doing is unethical. I personally only promote programs that I honestly can say they aren’t a scheme and My Online Business Empire is clearly a scheme.

      Like I stated above, paying a licensing fee is just another way of sugarcoating it, and making it sound like you are actually getting something for your money but your not. I was stopped at step 6 and was denied access to the program so I am speaking from my experience. I have also talked to several other people who said they were stopped at step 6 as well.

      I am only stating the facts and trying to save people from falling into another obvious pyramid scheme. If you want to promote ANY of MOBEs products as you call them, you need to pay for them before you can. There is absolutely nothing at all offered for FREE because you have to pay a $49 application fee just to be accepted.

      I guess you must have forgotten about that didn’t you? Just to let you know, I promote high tickets programs from other affiliates programs all the time and NOT EVEN ONCE have I been asked to pay for them before I could promote them. If that seriously doesn’t raise a red flag to you then I don’t know what to tell you.

      I would certainly hope that if you paid $8,997 that the least he could do is pay for your trip and all your activies along with your room and board. There is a much cheaper alternative where you can actually get started for FREE and yes it really is FREE. No application fees or $2K licensing fees are required after you get into the program either.

      I’m glad that you are enjoying yourself with MOBE and I hope that sometime soon you wake up and realize that you are ripping other people off by promoting this scheme. I do appreciate you stopping by and sharing your experience with everyone here and I hope you have an awesome day.

    There are two ways a pyramid works. Finding more vulnerable folks to keep the downline churning and the upline making money, or to continue selling more and more products to your existing customers.

    The MOBE program is doing both in parallel and unfortunately people are falling into this trap. Once you invest $1,000 you are far more likely to push your friends and family to join to recoup your money…unfortunately you are in essence stealing money from them just so they can do the same thing you are doing to others.

    These ponzi schemes continue to pop-up, I wonder when this madness is going to stop!

      Hi Kyle,
      I agree with you 100% on this and you would think that by now someone would step in and shut pyramid schemes like this down. I hate programs where you gotta try and get your friends and family members to join. Like you have said people everyday are falling into their trap and before they even know what they are doing they have at least $1,000 in it at bare minimum.

      Now you gotta push this scheme on to as many people as you can just to get your initial investment back. It’s pyramid ponzi schemes like this one that has gave internet marketing a bad name. With so many scams out there, people get frustrated and tired of being ripped off. They think that there’s no real way to make money online

      I hope that this madness will stop soon and I thank you so much for stopping by and chiming in on this discussion.

    Great review! I love how you break everything down and show us MOBE’s slimy and deceiving marketing tactics. I was thinking about joining until I read your review. Thank you so much for this and I hope this helps many other people avoid getting scammed. Very informative and well laid out 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing what some people will do for money. It is obvious that people like this have no clue that there is an honest way to build an online business.

    Programs like this frustrate me to no end. I have purchased my fair share of them in the past so when I see another one it makes my blood boil.

      Hi Virgie,
      Yes it is very sad that people would rather make their living ripping other people off then they would like to help them build their own online business and show them a way to get started for Free.

      It’s programs like these that give internet marketing a bad name and these guys make me sick. I have also had my fair share of being scammed in my time and it’s not a good feeling. That is why I decided to build a website to help everyone avoid scams and show them a way to make real money online legitimately.

      Thanks for stopping by Virgie and chiming in on this discussion and I hope your business is doing well.

    Out of all the MLM’s I have seen, MOBE is without a doubt the most expensive. Far worse than even Empower Network.

    They are also promoting their training (MTTB) separately to try and boost MOBE’s overall sales. This is where you see that 21 step program come into play. But as I understand it, within those steps, you will be required to pay for a nearly $2,000 priced training course to move forward. No thank you.

      I agree with you 100% on this Vitaliy! I though that Empower network was expensive but then when I started reviewing this program I quickly changed my mind. This has gotta be one of the biggest ponzi pyramid schemes that I think I have ever reviewed. Another thing that I don’t like is the dishonest and very shady marketing tactics they use.

      They are using their $49 entrance fee to get you on the inside then that’s when they really start hitting you with upsells. A nice $2k one to start out with followed by many more. Actually step 6 is when one of your tasks for the day is to take care of a $2k licensing fee as Matt calls it.His program is full of lies from the minute you join and all the way through it.

      Thanks so much for stopping by Vitaliy and sharing your thoughts on this scam.

    Great review. I am so tired of internet programs that offer no value, for a fee, whether you call it a scam or not.
