A new 'Home based Business / MLM / Business Opportunity / Pyramid Scheme" has just launched in the name of SizzleZing by a long time 'networker' called Carl Troutner.
Whatever pet name you want to call this kind of business, Carl is following in the footsteps of TVI and Herbalife and hoping to become a Bernie Madoff... no sorry I mean a Trump,Icahn, or Soros type who seem to get away with the Made in America pyramid scheme.
SizzleZing's webpage hides behind what looks like a banner ad sales company, yet their few banners only appear on the front of the SizzleZing site and inside their own login area. So no value in the banners!
What they are really selling is the dream of quick money on the back of a get rich quick scheme which goes like this:
You'll get somebody you know either call you up or post on your social network rallying cries of “get in now, ground-floor opportunity, unlimited income!”. These promises are spread virus-like by those who have paid $330 to join the 'game' and get on the first of 3x pyramid boards.
What do they get for paying $330 of their hard earnt money to Carl Troutner?
A promise that they will make $1200as the APEX leader of the gang, if they get 6 of their friends (or a mix of friends of friends) to also cough up $330 each and 'play the game'. Oh wait... you don't actually get $1200 because the game charges the apex leader $800 as a board charge for now moving to board#2, oh... they also charge $300 automatically to put you back on board#1 again as well as an admin fee.
So actually, the APEX leader made $76 back on their $330 buy in.
Carl Troutner however, just made $2234 on board#1 out of the fool who managed to convince six of their friends to also throw $330 away. The best part about this smoke and mirrors pyramid scheme is that once you've paid the $330 in to SizzleZing - if you dont manage to get to fill the board that you are on as your friends haven't fallen for the con - you get ZERO back out of SizzleZing. What a lovely concept.
So for those sales people (APEX leaders) who managed to convince their friends that they will be rich by Christmas. They are now on both a Board#2 and a Board#1. They are now pushing their friends to each find some other fools to part with $330 each, bragging that they have made $1200 (really $76) and that the friends too can make it !! Why? because the APEX wants to get to the top of Board#2 (remember it cost them $800 to be on this board) and as long as their gang (read 'team') continue to convince others to keep joining for $330 - the APEX will reach the top of Board#2 with a payout of $3200. Oh wait - again, there's fees :) $800 for rotating back on board#2 to start again PLUS $1,500 cost for joining the third and final board#3. WOW. So the original promise of $3200 is really $876 due to Carl's fees.
So, the APEX team leader passing board#2 made $876
Carl Troutner just made a cool $27,720 on board#2 (less 12x board#1's payouts (12x$76) which the gang receives in pushing the sponsor APEX to the top of the second board) The lovely nature of Pyramid Scheme's for the scheme creator!
Now.. If the gang manage to continue finding more fools to keep giving them $330 each time and get the APEX sponsor to the top of the board#3, the APEX is promised a payout of $6,000 !!... yes, you guessed it. Board#3 completion triggers a fee of $1500 and admin fees, so the APEX will brag about hitting $6,000 in commission but really collected $4,488.
So, the APEX team leader passing board#3 made $4,488
Carl Troutner only makes $221,760 on board#3 (less all the payouts (~$35,904) split between the gang of 3,584 fools required to completely push the sponsor APEX through all 3x boards) What a business opportunity for everybody!
Now lets look at the total figures generated for the Two parties for one trip through the SizzleZING program:
APEX Team Leader makes a total of $5,440
(If they ever manage to get through a second time it goes up to $7,764)
Number of people required in APEX's direct downline (pyramid) = 3,584 people
Carl Troutner SizzleZING wizzard makes $213,378 per APEX Team Leader.
What is everybody promised - besides getting rich with no real effort other than convincing others?
FREE BANNER ADS on the website of SizzleZING.
which sounds great to those who don't understand the internet. Its a brand new website with zero authority on the internet, so the banners are worthless. The only people who will even see the adds are the gullable as they pass through the doors of the latest ripoff fleece the poor pyramid scheme to be released with “get in now, ground-floor opportunity, unlimited income!” FANFAIR.
Get ready to see SizzleZING spam everywhere as they aim to infultrate the social airwaves of Facebook, Google+, Youtube and Twitter!!!
ipayout payment processors should be embarassed as the organization allowing Carl Troutner to take folks money for this.
They currently provide a PDF of their pyramid payout scheme on their home page described as their SizzleZing Compensation Plan. The math is laid out in all its glory to follow:
In case they take it down or hide it within their site... here is an exact copy elsewhere online too:
To enjoy Carl Troutner bragging about how exciting SizzleZING is on Youtube (recorded during a sales call I believe) Some of the gullable are already commenting on how gggggggreat the recording is with a view count of 432. Its worth a listen for those who can decifer the B.S. amongst the authoritative and trustworthy Carl Troutner wishing to bring joy to the faces and hearts of the public via the networkers "WHO GET IT!"
