FutureNet is a rather mysterious Internet company that shows all the hallmark signs of a money making scam. Its only specialty appears to be stringing together buzzwords and promising people the opportunity to make money for simply being online.
Finding information about FutureNet is a virtual wild goose chase. The company's homepage is solely an invitation to login or register for the FutureNet Advertising Program Hidden at the bottom of the page are three links:
- Terms and Regulations
- FutureNet 2014-2016
The Company link provides next to nothing for the user in terms of information. It lists Founder and CEO as Roman Ziemian and Stephan Morgenstern. A Google search of these names produces little more than a series of video interviews on YouTube. The company link also lists a vague company address located in the Marshall Islands, a small nation in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
The FutureNet 2014-2016î link also takes you to a page where you can register for the company's advertising program. Once again, there are several links hidden at the bottom of the page:
- Log in
- About FutureNet
- Future Mobile
The Registration, Log in, Help and About FutureNet links all take users to the same page that encourages them to watch a six-minute video about the company. The video appears to be somewhat outdated, at one point referring to Facebook being created nine years ago, meaning the video was created around 2013, possibly sooner.
The video itself is all flash and no substance, offering no specifics on what the company actually does or how people can make money through FutureNet. It begins with a vague discussion about the future of the Internet for market potential. The video then calls FutureNet the most innovative social network platform,î that can help people achieve their potential. There are claims that FutureNet shares 90% of its income with users and that people will get paid to use all the social network portals they already use on a regular basis.
Itís hard to gather from the FutureNet website what the company ís products are. The About FutureNet link does have a link at the top saying products, but clicking it simply takes you further down on the page where there is a cheap slideshow of their so-called products:
Obviously, these aren't specific products, just general items, and clicking any of these merely takes you further down the page where you are prompted to request a magazine that will theoretically contain the company's game plan for helping its partners make money.
Research indicates that those who sign up with FutureNet ís advertising program invest in what the company calls ìpacks. Each pack investment comes with advertising credits that can be used on the company ís Advertising Program website.
FutureNet affiliates invest $50 for a pack, expecting a $60 return on investment for each pack. The number of packs an affiliate can invest in depends on their membership, which can range from free, which allows an affiliate to invest in 50 packs, to $180 for a year-long membership, which allows the affiliate to invest in up to 1,000 packs. Affiliates who pay a higher membership fee are able to make a higher commission, especially when they are able to recruit new affiliates.
There ís little evidence to suggest that FutureNet is a credible company and that the FutureNet Advertising Program is a legitimate way to make money. The fact that they prompt potential affiliates to register without telling them anything about the company is the first indication that the company is up to no good.
Another strong indication is the fact that most of the company's website is a runaround. Having an address in the Marshall Islands doesn't inspire confidence in the company, nor does the lack of information available on the history of the company. Moreover, the company doesn't appear to offer any actual products and its outdated video creates more questions than answers.
Finally, even if you can wrap your head around the payment plan, affiliates are asked to put down a significant amount of money if they hope to earn high commissions. Surely, there are better places to invest one's money than this sketchy Internet company that has scam written all over it.
