This is not a real offer to work from home, simply a pyramid scheme where you tell others that there is a "work from home opportunity" and get them to sign up for a free offer, and then send them out to go get other people to do the same.

Free Treasure Chest or FTC

AUTHOR: coveredbygrace - ()

Not a scam---- if people would follow directions it would work for them. Ftc owned by Affluntry network is backed by BBB. free treasure chest is nothing but a referral business for fortune 500 compaines that pay daily for your referrals.

Each offer has it's own set of requirements that must be read. If a person does an offer and they do not want to keep said services or offer then they have to cancel by end of trial date, simple as that. people that complain are the one's who don't treat it like a business and they forget to cancel the offer and get pissed that money is taken out of thier account, but if they had any sence the would call the customer service and it would be refunded back to them no questions asked, with in 7 to 10 business working days.

Most complainers call thier banks and say they did not authorize the debt when they in fact did and just forget to take care of thier business, that is on them not on the company. then they scream scam and get cought up in the frustration that they caused. If the people would go to the Affuntry training center.com and get EDUCATED before jumping into the business there would not be any complaints.

This is a business, and yes you have to get your own referrals the business is not going to do the work for you, hence the work at home opportunity comes in.That is with any business. you can not expect to sit on the couch watch TV and make money, it does not work that way. This web site needs to have someone from thier network do the business for themselves, if they follow instructions they will see it is legit. 

Yes you can make money, Yes it takes time to build anything , it is not a get rich quick thing, it takes time patience and work.

My Free Treasure Chest

AUTHOR: JohnAndersonTheRipOffKing - (United States of America)

A pyramid this is NOT.  There is actually a product.  The FREE trials one signs up for is an opportunity for that fortune 500 company to win you as a customer, whether it is Walmart, Experion, My Free Credit Report, etc.  They pay My Cash Freebies and in turn they pay you generously for providing that lead.  You are essentially a referral agent and like any other referral agent, they get paid for leads.  There are many other companies who operate the same.  I am involved in several and make an average of $100.00 per person who simply TRIES Free trials.  They in return gain the privilege of promoting the same program to earn the same money.  It is actually a service and product everyone can use (which is the ability to earn money the EASY, FREE and LEGIT way).  I am sorry you have not explored it far enough to see that and hope you check it out again.  Good luck.

FTC is not a scam: Some people have ruined it for others

AUTHOR: Stephanie - (United States of America)

Free Treasure Chest is not a scam at all. There are just some people that have taken what they offer and tried to tweak it to make more money. I know this because I was introduced to FTC through a person that promised me many things like: free training, help with setting up by business, and support. None of those were offered to me after they made money off of me. In fact, the person just kept telling me to do all these offers on so many sites and that I would make money on each site. As if for each call I answered I could make all of this money. That is just false. After they made money off of me, I could not get anyone to answer my calls or emails. Funny thing is, I still get emails every once and awhile when that person has a new link for me to do more offers so they can make money off of me again. But, please don't take it out on FTC.
FTC is a legit network were you can sign up for free and refer others there to do trail offers. Once they sign up under your referral link, FTC will pay you for that. That is it. Not a pyramid scheme and not a hustle. The so called "team" that I got scammed by just associates themselves with FTC and are greedy, taking advantage of the wonderful opportunity that FTC offers. If you want to join the best and totally FREE team associated with FTC, then check out Freedom Opps.com. They are completely FREE. They don't charge you $49 for Solavei or $200 for Training and Mentoring... it's completely FREE! Do some research and you will see this is the facts. They offer 2 Free training calls every week and when you call you actually get a person on the phone! I was taken for a ride by the "other" team and luckily I found the right team shortly after. The Freedom Team. Since then, I have been making money daily and no one can take that away from me.
Other bad affiliations with FTC include: dailybreadgivers.com, xfactor.dailybreadgivers.com, www.solavei.com. They all charge you to join and the worst part is the talk about God and how you are going to be so blessed. They should be ashamed of themselves! Reality is, God will handle His revenge for their actions. That is all.

Free Treasure Chest is legit

AUTHOR: realitycheck - (United States of America)

Do you really think companies like Equifax and Transunion would sign up to participate with their products on Free Treasure Chest if it was a pyramid scheme? Hardly. I have legitimate money that has been deposited into my PayPal Account for the work I have done.  I walk a trainee through about 5-6 trials and I am paid $80 for the work.  I do it 3 more times in a day=$240. I teach others how to do this as well.

Now, that is very good money for a day's work. Where can the average Joe go out and make $30 an hour??? So, you do some trials to learn the biz....So what??? That's painless training! You might even like some of the products/services enough to keep them. And if not, you are under no obligation past the trial.

This is a legitimate business that has been in place for over 5 years now, operated by LFK Products LLC. They provide a service to people who want to work from home, check out great products from reputable companies and advertisers get exposure for their products and services and are more than willing to pay us handsomely to do that for them.

The complainer should get educated about what a pyramid scheme is: a pyramid scheme does not involve a product or service in exchange for money. Free Treasure Chest provides a vehicle to drive potential business to the advertiser's site, the trial offers are completed with a credit card, the trainee gets a product or service to try for free or near free (some trials are $1 or $1.99+ for the specified time frame and the worker gets paid.

A person gets the freedom to work from home, the hours they want, no boss to report to...And you, dear poster, are whining about having to do some trial offers as part of your training and place a free ad to show this business to others when they respond to your ad?  Sounds like you would be better off working for someone and being their slave vs. having a way to make income that gives you the freedom to live your life on your terms. LFK Products LLC and Free Treasure Chest ROCK!

When business is slow in my commission only job, this gives me a side job to bring in extra income, so I for one am a very happy camper!!!

Everything is laid out... It works for me!!

AUTHOR: apankey2 - (United States of America)

Hey everyone,

I decided to put my 2 cents into this discussion. I am friends with a guy named Brent Parker on Facebook. He is a millionaire who does real estate investing. He introduced me to this opportunity.

He has a special relationship with the owners of FTC and have come up with a new group. I started about a week and a half ago and have already made $360... This may not seem like a lot but I didn't put nearly as much effort into it as I should have.

I am part of the freedom group which has no affiliation with dailybreadgivers. We have our own offers which are not on the regular FTC site. I can honestly say that this system works, and it beats working at a warehouse for $8/hour (which I have done and it sucks major a$$). The training with our group is the best that I have seen so far.

Some people just don't get how the system works. If you are honest with people and tell them what they will be doing, then you shouldn't have any problem making money. What I do is offer a rebate to people who completes the higher sites. For example, in our group we have the bloodstone site. This site pays $120 to me if they complete it. It costs around $20 for someone to get greened on that site. I just refund their $20 after the trial period is over and I pocket the $100.

Just do it and it will work.

Is all very clear from the start

AUTHOR: Red1111 - (United States of America)

The work I am  doing is marketing work from home and products for major companies.  Yes it is a lot of repetitiveness, but your helping people and companies.  Just because it wasn't all sugar doesn't mean people should bash the opportunity.  All at home jobs require time and effort.  This one works, and it pays well if you put in the effort.  This is an honest (independent) job and may not be for everyone but is not a scam all the same.  I am doing the job myself and love it!  I can make my own hours and I get training every week, as well as getting paid daily through paypal.  There has not been any complaints filed with BBB and the people that are whining just were expecting the job to work itself.

The guy "Brent" behind this company is in fact "Gospel Jackson"

AUTHOR: Remy - (Canada)

I just thought that I would point that out. This guy, "Brent", owes me $2,200 since July 2011. His real name is Gospel Jackson. You can find it out on Google by typing "Gospel Jackson" and you will be able to see him. He is a black guy. He is also on Imdb.com.

Free Treasure Chest is legitimate!

AUTHOR: ABParker - (United States of America)

As with any real opportunity, their are those that miss the boat because they simply walk in fear and that fear sometimes keeps them from seeing an opportunity for what it is. Some also lack understanding and will even call an opportunity a scam and specifically a pyramid scam and they don't really understand the meaning of the term. I would liketo first share with you that FreeTreasureChest.com is as legit, legal, moral and ethical as it gets. I've been with the company over 4 months and it's an easy work from home (I prefer from the beach) opportunity where I get paid to market trial offers for Fortune 500 companies. I have had excellent support from the corporate office and been paid right on time and even been given bonuses unexpectedly the entire time I've been with them.

Second I want to submit below the legal definition of a "Pyramid Scam". :D It's makes me laugh a little even typing the terms because our society is so far removed from them and we are so well protected by law enforcement that it's funny people even think that it's a fear they should have. So here it is:

A pyramid scheme is a fraudulent system of making money which requires an endless stream of recruits for success. Recruits (a) give money to recruiters and (b) enlist fresh recruits to give them money. These schemes are characterized by the promise of sky-high returns in a short period of time for doing nothing other than handing over your money and getting others to do the same.

So let's break this down. 1. The person that refers you to FTC, never takes or even asks you for a single penny. 2. FTC never takes or even asks for a single penny of your money. 3. FTC never promises sky-high returns in a short period of time for doing nothing other than handing over your money and getting others to do the same. 4. Many people never even spend a penny signing up for the free trials of the companies that FTC promotes. Those who do are simply paying a dollar or two to try a legitimate product or service. IF someone chooses one of those offers that require a small payment, 100% of the money paid goes to the company offering the trial product or service. FTC nor the person who referred you to the company with the trial offer gets a cent of what you pay for that offer.

So FreeTreasureChest.com and ABParker.com offer/refer legitimate Work from home opportunities!

I hope this had cleared up any misunderstandings or fears about this incredible opportunity!

God Bless!

I would like to communicate with you about FTC...

AUTHOR: worksearcher - (United States of America)

Hello,

I was looking for a little help - I signed up for Pearl about a week ago, but since then, have lost the info from the girl who I signed up under.  I have used the company training, but need just a little info boost from someone who is making it work (yourself) to help get me started.  Basically, to see whether the steps/procedures I'm following are what you use, or if I'm leaving something out, etc.  I'll risk giving my email: hpat936@yahoo.com, (since I change my password real often, anyway, not too worried) if you wouldn't mind contacting me?

Like you, I have experienced nothing yet which leads me to believe it is a scam.  There is no product, like you say, so therefore no loss, except for the $1-5 for the 1 trial offer. 

Thanks

In response: to can you cancel the offer.

AUTHOR: brookelyn39 - (United States of America)

Yes, you can always cancel something you don't want.
Some offers may not be as easy to cancel and all have a deadline to cancel before you will be charged.
It is up to you to read the terms and conditions, if they were not pointed out to you by the person that sign you up.
If that person does not explain things to you, you should not sign up under them.
Find someone that will take the time to help you.

I noticed some Lawyer/Liar online also made a statement against these programs to someone that asked.
I read the lawyers/Liars response, it was a link from here.  Someone's complaint from here!
No legal quote whatsoever.  Then they asked the same party to pay them for that BS.
 That's the best they could do.  Now that's a scam!

Great Company

AUTHOR: greenmile2day - (United States of America)

I am an Independent Agent for the Company.  I participated in opportunity and working this fun job daily.  It is NOT MLM or a Pyramid Scheme.  The checks I receive from LFK clear the bank! My product IS promotional trials from MAJOR vendors who advertize on the internet.  No different that the advertising salesperson who sells Promo Trial Advertising to a TV network, Billboard Company, and a zillion other places.  At the same time I am offering folks who contact me through my advertising the same opportunity to work for LFK, and make a decent income. Participating prospects learn what the product is by participating in the vendor trail promotionals, they ARE NOT REQUIRED to keep the trials to qualify for this fun job.  We are paid from large Vendor advertising budgets, NOT the Trial Offers!

Can You Really Make Money with Free Treasure Chest? Is It Really A FREE Program? Is it Scam?

AUTHOR: mffreetreasurechest - (USA)

Free Treasure Chest has been around since 2008 and offer free memberships to people who want to earn money by referring others to try free or low-cost offers for products and services.

When I see FREE, I am always skeptical. "Free" is often used as bait; after you get in, you get upsold and it quickly becomes "paid-for" and not free anymore.

The basic idea of Free Treasure Chest is that it offers anyone residing in the USA or Canada the opportunity to sign up as a FREE MEMBER. Members try out some offers for various products and services; some free, others costing little. This qualifies the member to earn money by referring others to try the offers available from their website. Upon completion of the required number of offers, a member becomes an Independent Referral Agent for Free Treasure Chest.

There are two particular "mini-sites" in Free Treasure Chest that are interesting.

The First is their PEARL, where an Independent Referral Agent earns $20.00 for each referral who completes one (1) offer.

Then there is their SILVER, where an Independent Referral Agent earns a minimum of $60.00 for each referral who completes one (1) credit.

In SILVER, the referral needs to accumulate one (1) credit by completing several offers. There are offers which are worth 0.25 credits, there are those which are 0.20, 0.15 depending on the offer. One usually completes anywhere between four (4) to six (6) offer to earn the 1.00 credits required.

I particularly like these loots as Free Treasure Chest calls them because the PEARL, gives me the opportunity to pocket several twenty's every day, while SILVER, does the same exact thing in multiples of sixties.

I have only been in the program for a couple of weeks and I've already seen funds being transferred to my Paypal account, and they even pay for the fees so that makes me a happy camper.

As good as Free Treasure Chest is, there are some people who jump into registering without knowing full well what it means to join, and feel that they are scammed simply because they had to pay for an offer or a few offers. I cannot understand how this can be seen as a scam or a rip-off because the essence of being scammed is that one pays for a product or service that is never received. All the offers given provide products or services that most of need and use on a regular basis anyway, so I think there is a real disconnect.

Another reason for people who cry "scam" justify their position is that membership is not really free as they are paying for some offers. While it is true that some trials are paid ones, the money paid for the trials do not go to Free Treasure Chest or the Independent Referral Agent, but to the companies who made the trial offers. These fees are actually substantially discounted compared to the amount people have to shell out if they buy them retail.

The money that Independent Referral Agents are paid do not directly come from these trial offer fees but from budgets that these companies allot for their advertising.

So this brings me back to my original questions:

1. Is Free Treasure Chest really free? Yes, Signing up to become an Independent Referral Agent for Free Treasure Chest is 100% Free;

2. Can you really make money from Free Teasure Chest? Yes, you can make money honestly from becoming an Independent Referral Agent for Free Treasure Chest; other people already are, I am starting to see money coming in; why not you? There is nothing to lose, but definitely a lot to gain;

3. Is Free Treasure Chest a scam? Absolutely not. Free Treasure Chest does not charge anything for becoming an Independent Referral Agent, and it has paid people for referring others to try the offers featured in their website/s.

dailybreadgivers/ FTC

AUTHOR: Van - (United States of America)

I responded to an add.  The lady explained everything to me, was very helpful very honest. I was glad to have someone help me.  I did the same to everyone of my family members that came in under me. I guess if I never got paid, I would feel the same way as you. But many people have seen great benefit from this, when they could not get a job anywhere else. If the companies did something else with people's information, then I could see it being called so.

Everyone is not cut out to be a marketer, as everyone is not cut out o be the president. Perhaps if you had the help I had, you would not be on here. In these times this is an excellent opportunity. I would never sell blood as last resort for money! Some people do.  I would never call that a scam. It's work when you take time to help people, and answer questions around the clock.

Unless you like to Scam people, it's not for you!

AUTHOR: Honest 411 - (United States of America)

Yes it is not for everyone, only for those who don't mind going along with the false representations of the company. It does cost you, time and money. You have to complete some offers and pay a fee which is really not much( around $1 per offer). I have lost about $5 and 3 hours from signing up and canceling trials.  However the misrepresentation really lies in the nature of the job.

 If only they would just be honest about what you would be doing: You are making money from getting other people sign up to "take inbound calls". There is no actual "work". Once you have completed the offers and some crafty representative has made money, you will basically be scamming people the same way you were scammed. So if you're ok with that then fair enough.

 But they are right it's not for everyone. So even though it didn't cost me much money(but unfortunately a lot of time), it cost me my TRUST and dignity.  I believed the guy that got me to sign up, he convinced me this was a legit and great way to make money. But everything he told me was false. So if you don't want to waste your time, money, energy or lose trust in  online marketing  opportunites, my advice is stay away!
