Website: 3K Payday System
Owner: Steven James
What Is The 3K Payday System?
The real owner of the program appears to be a guy named Steven James who owns DeltaCorp Marketing, Inc. He also appears to be responsible for a number of similar websites, some of which also use the same fake persona "Julie McDaniels".
Here are just a few websites I found that are owned by Steven:
- 7 Minute Paycheck (defunct scam)
- Megan's Income Challenge (defunct scam)
- My Internet Success Coach (promotes a high ticket mlm known as MOBE)
The 3K system is actually NOT a system in itself, it is a generic sales page. Like all such pages, they are often used to promote whatever is converting the best at the time and switch without warning. For example, this appears to have been used to promote a binary options software but now points to an opportunity called Digital Altitude. When you join DA through the 3K site, Steven makes a commission.
How The System Works
As I mentioned, the underlying product is actually pretty decent in terms of the training and it is entirely possible to create a full-time income with it as well. You start off paying $1 for a trial which does give you a full look into the basic training and what the system is about so that effectively removes any risk for you. That said, this products are quite high in price so it's not for everyone and you aren't going to just plug in and watch the money roll in. Unfortunately, that is not how real businesses operate.

Exposing The Sales Hype
The biggest issue with these kinds of websites is their unethical approach to marketing the various programs. They never explain what it's about and in this case, they just talk about what the program isn't. Here are a few snippets I have copied word for word from the website:
- You will never have to pay for traffic or anything like that
- You will never need to work long hours
- You will never have to recruit anyone
This is a network marketing system and as such you must be building your downline, AKA recruiting people. That's fine but obviously you aren't being told the full story. Furthermore, in order to make any money with any online business you absolutely NEED traffic. There are only 2 types of traffic, free and paid. This system relies mostly on sending paid traffic to your offer page. There is nothing wrong with buying traffic and it is a great way to build your business, but these guys are flat out lying about this.
The page goes on to explain that you will "sit comfortably in your home in your pajamas while sipping coffee to make an lavish income" and claims all you need is 3 minutes per day to achieve this.
With this kind of nonsense being thrown around it is no wonder so many people are struggling to create an income online. Marketers like this only care about one thing, themselves! The majority of people who join this way are led to believe they'll just sign up, push a few buttons and start making tons of cash.
These sites are setting you up for failure right from the get go by putting you into the wrong mindset. Success takes work and mlm is no different I can assure you.
In fact, the success rate (full-time income earners) within the mlm industry is about 1-3% on average which is a well documented fact. None of those top 3 percenters got their by "sipping coffee" and chilling in their pajamas. Don't buy into this kind of hype.
Are The Testimonials Legit?
It seems the testimonials are real which was surprising because most of these pages use fake reviews and testimonials to boost credibility.
I did some digging and it seems these are all top earners with Digital Altitude. It turns out David Prosser did NOT just sign up and see instant success from a beginner. He has been in the mlm industry for over 16 years and shares his real journey in the interview shown below.
Interview Questions With David Prosser
1. How long have you been in network marketing? I got a start about 16 years ago with a company back in Ireland. Signed up a few people before the company went belly up. Got back into network marketing in 2010.
2. Did you have success immediately? Hell no, there were weeks I would call 600+ people and get nothing but no’s.
To be clear, I have nothing against David or any other person in the company. Not at all. He seems like a good guy and probably doesn't even realise he is being used on the 3K sales page.
The point here is that those featured in the testimonials achieved success by working hard to get where they are! It is totally possible David and the others made those sales as quickly as they claimed, yes. But the context of how they did it and their journey to get to that point is an entirely different story.
Get Ready For The SPAM
We may use the personal information that you supply to us and we may work with other third party businesses to bring selected opportunities to our members via email , direct mail or telephone.
In other words, this site intends on using your email to spam you with a ton of other offers and sell it on to other gurus who will spam you with their offers. This is very common and it's super annoying.
What I Liked
- It's only $1 upfront so you can get a look inside yourself easy enough
- Digital Altitude does provide some very worthwhile training and the company itself is ok
What I Didn't Like
- Misleading marketing tactics
- They intend to share, rent and/ or sell your name and email
- Julie McDaniels isn't real
Regardless of how good the actual business being promoted may or may not be, there is nothing good about sales hype like this. The website is deliberately misleading people about what to expect after joining which is why the 3K website gets a big thumbs down from me.
I spent years listening to 'gurus' which left me broke, frustrated and totally lost. There's only ONE program that helped me create a real income online, here's how it helped me succeed...
