The Company: GPS Funnel System
Owner: Bill Marler
Startup Cost: $34.95 +
This is not a work from home program in itself. It involves joining an mlm scheme known as the National Wealth Center, which I recently reviewed in detail. To cut a long story short, this only works (mathematically) for the very first lot of people who join. In my opinion, it's a scam.
When I saw the sales page I had the same thoughts I always do when I see giant wads of cash floating around and the word ‘guaranteed’ plastered everywhere… here we go again!
But then I hit the money tree part of the page... need I say more?
This is about as unethical and overhyped as it gets guys, don't believe a word of this crap.
Unfortunately, making money just isn’t that easy or everyone would be rich. At first glance this might seem like a good system but when you really look at these 4 points you start to see a very different picture to what is on the sales page:
- The rotator concept itself is fundamentally flawed (I explain this in detail below)
- The actual mlm company itself is very deceptive and not a good opportunity at all
- Tons of bad reviews
How It Works
Once you sign up to the National Wealth Center through the gpsfunnel.com website link and follow the enrolment process you’ll be automatically placed in a ‘rotator’ that allows you to get your first 4 recruits. This supposedly guarantees you $1000’s per month in a “very short period of time” for no effort. Unfortunately, that is not how it really works. Not by a long shot.
#1 Why The Rotator Concept Is Flawed
First off, here’s how this concept works in a nutshell:
- ‘Bill’ is the owner of the GPS website and is a rep for the NWC mlm company just like any other rep
- He decides to build one main sales page and drives web visitors to it through various means
- When you sign up through that sales page you are put into a rotator automatically, AKA long line
- You eventually get your first 4 recruits and then get taken off the rotator
- Your 4 recruits get placed on the same rotator to each get their first 4 and so on
- Apparently you are then going to be earning tons of money in a very short period of time
That general concept does sound like it would work but there is a very fundamental reason why it doesn’t in reality.
Each person that on that rotator is waiting for their 4 people and there’s only ever one person in the ‘hot seat’ at any one time, so inevitably the ‘hot seat’ line up will continue to get longer and longer.
As you can see above, based on just one person starting in the hot seat on launch day the line grows to 7 x larger in just 3 days!
The reason is because for every one person that drops off the rotator hot seat, 4 people are joining the line. In other words the line has to continue growing at the rate of +3 every single time someone ‘gets their 4 people’ and drops out of the hot seat.
Using the above basic example the line would go from 1 person on launch day to 88 people in just one month and about 1093 people waiting in line within 1 year.
Bill is likely signing up dozens of people each day which actually doesn’t improve this at all.
No matter how many people sign up that line will always continue to grow at the rate of +3 every time someone gets their 4, this is indisputable. Even though 1200 people signing up in one day might get 300 people waiting in the line their 4 recruits and knock them off the waiting list, there’s now another 900 people been added to this never ending line.
In other words… this entire rotating system is doomed to fail people from the very outset based on the this one logic alone.
This isn’t even to mention the domino effect this will have on the scheme.
Think about how many people are going to continue paying their monthly $25 when they have been promised a ‘guaranteed’ solution to building their downline that is actually just a bunch of BS. After a few months at best they are going to cancel, and their up line is now losing their recruits so they cancel and so on- right up the line.
You have to be way up top for this not to effect you. You also need to be WAY up in the mlm pyramid to make any money with this and you’ll see why below.
#2 NWC Is Not What It Seems
As I said at the outset I’ve already done a review of the NWC mlm company and I found it to be less than legit. The reps are being taught to share a numbers formula that supposedly proves how great the opportunity is.
Unfortunately for them I tend to get a little OCD when it comes to understanding the facts and blow their little fairy tale wide open.
Here’s a chart the GPS system is showing you about how easy it is to earn and it’s the same one a lot of them use:
Here’s what happens when you spend way too much time sifting through the finer details and even do a mind map to understand their confusing downline structure lol. It’s called a ‘2 up’ system and it’s super sketchy, no legit mlm uses it anymore because it’s total rubbish.
Anyway, here’s the real numbers (click to enlarge):
Notice how by the time you are supposedly earning this $12,750 per month in ‘such a short amount of time’ you are actually required to have a downline organisation of 87,380 people… that is an absolutely insane amount of recruits to reach that earnings level.
They sugar coat it by showing you you “only need 256 sales” which is such a deliberately misleading way to show these numbers in my opinion.
I can honestly say that almost no one would be hitting anywhere near that amount of people in their downline unless they have are very experienced and spending bucket loads on advertising themselves. The claim that “making 12k per month is a mathematical certainty” is complete and utter nonsense and they know it.
To cap this off, NWC has changed it’s name from ‘Infinity Downline’ a while back after people realised it was garbage and there’s talk of this scheme changing names in the near future as well.
#3 About Bill Marler
I won’t go into this too much but after doing some digging it was clear this Bill Marler guy is anything but legit. He is part of an alarming number of scam websites and is clearly operating under a fake alias.
The only one benefiting from the GPS website is whoever is really behind it and the creators of NWC.

#4 What People Are Saying
It didn’t take much searching to see what people thought of this, a recent review by Ethan Vanderbuilt contains a ton of comments by people that have been blatantly ripped off by this.
Most people are claiming they never even got so much as one single recruit. That’s because the line is now probably 10,000’s of people (or more) long.
It might appear to be a cheap and exciting opportunity but the reality is you’d be better off flushing your cash down the toilet since it wouldn’t take as long.
You won’t get any recruits through this system unless you plan on waiting a very long time and you are joining something that is nothing more than a barely legal cash gifting scheme. I do NOT recommend this and I think there are far better ways to invest your money and build a business.
