Website: Countdown To Profits
Owner: Anonymous/ Uses Alias
This is a re-branded version of an existing multi level marketing program, the only difference is they are charging you double the price to access it. The sales video is very misleading and overhyped, almost everything on the page is fake as I am about to show you in this review.
What Is Countdown To Profits (CTP)?
CTP is a re-branded version of My Top Tier Business, also known as MTTB, which is readily available for sale for $49 from the official website. The program itself exists primarily to warm people up for the system it funnels people into, MOBE. I’ve seen quite a few of these MOBE sales pages floating around and it seems they are only getting more common.
The Testimonials Are All Fake- Proof
After doing some snooping, I was able to find that almost all of the so called ‘Facebook comments’ have just been ripped off someone’s profile randomly. For example here’s ‘Mike Gia’ who claims he’s made almost $10k:
Here he is over on his Twitter profile under ‘Chad Engle’:
Not sure if it’s a stock photo or if Chad is the real deal. If Chad’s legit he’s probably gonna be pissed these scammers ripped his picture off lol. I’m pretty certain the people giving their testimonials in the video are paid actors also. I’m sure I’ve seen them before on another review but I couldn’t track them down and prove it this time round. Oh well… I’m willing to bank on the fact they’re fake though.
Embarrassing Slip Up Reveals The Truth
Now this is possibly the funniest thing I’ve ever seen on one these websites… the guru behind this is going to kick himself/ herself for this slip up…
Pretty sure they overlooked the fact that the same person supposedly seeing all this success is using different names. Further digging revealed she’s also been ripped off someone’s Twitter profile. The use of paid testimony is extremely common and quite cheap these days, like $6.90 will buy you a full video testimonial! Crazy right?
Another thing I want to touch on is their use of news videos and logos to try and build trust… it’s all part of their tactics. They have no endorsement of any kind with a news network I can assure you.
The $500 Is a Sneaky Gimmick
The sales video claims that you “have nothing to lose” and they are “paying you just to watch the video”…
Fact: In order to claim the $500 you must complete all 21 steps in the MTTB program. Interestingly, this includes the purchase of a $2,497 MOBE re-seller licence.
Your coach is trained to suggest you buy the re-seller license. The further you look into the fine print the more you realise what a sham the whole $500 thing is. The whole notion of making $500 is nothing short of misleading hype. MOBE is a high ticket sales funnel designed to promote addittional products to you totalling well over $50k, step by step. That is just how it is. There’s nothing wrong with high ticket products unless they are marketed in a misleading manner like this.
Can You Make Money With This?
It is certainly possible to succeed and make money with MOBE but unfortunately 96% of people lose money according to their own income disclaimer.
I don’t say this to put you off. Success is entirely dependent on YOU and YOUR efforts anyway, but I say this to make you aware it’s no easy ride! Most people that join the system I am reviewing would have no idea how elaborate the system they are joining really is and how much it’s going to cost them. Therein lies the problem.
People join this and after spending $1000’s quickly realise the only way they’ll make money is by recruiting others to do exactly the same thing. They essentially go out and ‘fake it until they make it’ so other will join under them, who then go through the same process. It’s a system that works well for people that know how to recruit tons of people and in the online world that means driving tons of traffic to your offers.
It appears the MOBE affiliate behind the CTP website intends on renting and selling your personal information which is never a good thing. The following was taken directly from the purchase agreement page located at: countdowntoprofits.com/terms/purchase-agreement.php
Buyer agrees that all personal information about the buyer or his or her buying habits and preferences, including address and phone number, may be placed in a general database and agrees that this information may be shared, rented or sold to third parties.
It gets pretty annoying when 20 different guru marketers and their spam telemarketing team smash you with their offers on a daily basis. I’ve made the mistake of signing up to some of these kinds of things and it is freaking annoying to say the least. What’s worse, any anonymous website having your personal information is concerning.
In this case it’s not MOBE you need to be concerned about, it’s the owner of the CTP website who cannot be verified. The way this is put together is strikingly similar to a network of known scam websites that have even had action taken against them by the FTC.
What I Liked
- High ticket commissions are nice
What I Didn’t Like
- Deceptive and misleading marketing hype
- $500 guarantee is BS
- People are not made aware of the heavy costs involved
In order to make the kind of money the 4% are making with this, you must purchase the more and more products. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing on it’s own (provided the products have value) the opportunity is being marketed in a very misleading way in my opinion. There is just too much hype and charging people twice the price for the same product? Come on.
