I have not tried this company but I think it's a scam. It sounds to me like a pyramid scheme. The buyers are the ones who buy into this scheme and when there are no more buyers the top dog will disappear leaving the underlings to pay the price for his dishonesty. Why else would you only be able to view the program if you pay money. Any honest program would tell you upfront what they are about and then you could pay money if you liked the idea or product.

Also if the head guy is doing all the work and you just get paid cause your a member then how do you know if people are really buying if you don't see them actually buying. They are buying into this scam just like you and their money is paying you that is my guess. I do not like to be part of dishonest scams even if I can make a profet. It's not honest money. But to each his own. Only time will tell if I'm right.

Global Resorts Network is not a ripoff or scam

AUTHOR: Grnwealth - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, February 03, 2008
The Reverse Funnel System is a marketing platform used by many to market an amazing product called the Global Resorts Network membership. The product allows those that cant afford a $10k-30k investment in a timeshare to buy a membership that will still allow them to travel at 4 and 5 * luxury resorts for a fraction of the price. Customers save 70-80% off retail prices. The product sells itself and is the perfect product to sell to those interested in high end travel. Why would anyone buy a timeshare. There are no maintenance fees here and you can travel when you want and where you want as MANY times a year you want. All you pay is the 299-699 per week it costs to stay at these resorts.

The Reverse Funnel System is not used by everyone to market the Global Resorts Network membership. We have MANY other sales systems to use. The Reverse Funnel System is used by those that are looking for full automation. This though is a direct sales business that pays great. Many on our team earn in excess of $20k+ a month marketing this product. We can teach you how to attract and find buyers who would be interested in this. So again this is not a scam.

Thank you for explaining the business a little more. I wish they would explain it more in the website. Something about it still doesn't seem right but It is good to know there is a real item being sold. Please anyone else have comments about this. The more the merrier

Reverse Funnel System is Legitimate with a real product

AUTHOR: Candacebud - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, November 19, 2007
This is the first biz opp that's actually made me money. It is legitimate with a real product. The product is a travel membership...lifetime membership to Global Resorts Network (GRN). You get unlimited weeks at 4 or 5 star resorts for $299-$799 per week (that's usually the cost per night at these 1st class resorts). Unlimited uses. You also get 3 weeks per year to use toward family or friends. GRN has been in business for over 20 years. Very reputable.

The Reverse Funnel System (RFS) is one way to market the sale of this membership. RFS alone has brought in over $5 million in sales in just the last 3 months. RFS only started in July 2007. These amounts of sales are record-breaking.

The RFS system charges a fully refundable $50 to weed out the "tire kickers." If you don't like what you see, you get your $50 back!

I've made a hefty income from using RFS to promote the product. This is as real as it gets! I have no internet marketing experience, yet I still continue to make sales because of the completely automated system. Yes, you do have to put a little effort into your marketing ( much of it is free, or buy leads from one of the lead sources specially designed to promote RFS, but this is a real business with a real product!

Compare the offer to Pyramid Scheme Signs

AUTHOR: Anthony - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, November 11, 2007
Disclaimer: I *DID NOT* pay the $50 application fee or otherwise participate in their offer, so my opinions below are simply my opinions. I am a concerned consumer that was performing research on this company when I was looking to invest. I am writing because I am gravely concerned at the lack of negative material on this company- I presume due to the newness of their offering. I do NOT contest the results they are claiming... simply the legality.

Consider this doc from the Maryland Attorney General re: Pyramid schemes:

From that document, consider these warning signs:
The plan offers a product or service to disguise its true nature, but the product or service may be overpriced, useless, or have no established market.
[You mean like travel discount program]

The company employs hard sell tactics or group psychology to pressure new recruits to sign up as distributors.
[Everything I saw talked about signing to sell the program. ZERO information about the product I would be selling.]

New distributors are required to pay substantial initial fees or are told to purchase a large amount of product inventory up front.
[$50 is not substantial... it is the rumored $3,000 subsequent investment that concerns me]

Distributors must commit to receiving shipments of product each month
[No 'product'... but you do have to purchase their website for $200~$300/month. Even blatant Pyramid schemes don't ask you to lock in on that much.]

The company or promoters show off large commission checks or luxury items earned by other participants
[Again, every single promotion I've seen promotes the money the participants made. *NO ONE* has talked about the value of the product]

Promoters suggest that distributors can earn significant residual income for little or no effort.
{Compare the money offered compared to the work they say you must invest.]

Additonally, ask yourself:
Am I making money for signing up people or selling product?
If I never get anyone else to sign up to sell, can I be successful?

My personal conclusion: this guy simply hasn't been around long enough for the house of cards to fall. Do your own google search for "PYRAMID SCHEME SIGNS" and compare to this company and their offering. BUYER BEWARE!

Santa Clause is real!

AUTHOR: Jay - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Thursday, October 11, 2007
Hi Kat,

I noticed that a person wrote in saying:

"I thought I would take a moment to tell you, as a member of the Reverse Funnel System, that the companies behind this are real the people are real, and the manner in which we make our commissions is very real.

I have been with the team for 1 month, and am closing in on 20,000."

Kat, if they are going to write such a glowing detailed report, well then let me say the following:

Hi Kat,

I thought I would take a moment to tell you, as a member of Santa's Team, that the Elves are real, the flying reindeer are real, and the manner in which we make toys for all the little boys and girls is very real.

I have been with the team for 1 hour, and have now made 20,000 toys.

Kat, if they ask for any start up money, payment for kits, if they take cash, credit cards, money orders, bank drafts, or cashiers checks, then please run, run hard, run fast, and don't look back!
