Every single day I get a couple of emails about Vibrant Money System, a make money online product that was released since late last year.
After getting one today from the people behind 12 Minute Payday, I decided to do a review of what I had already deemed to be a scam based on some observations.
After researching these products for the last 8 years, I can quickly tell just by viewing the promo video when a product is absolutely not worth your time. In the case of Vibrant Money System, I was able to tell within the first two seconds of watching the promo video.
In this Vibrant Money System review, I’ll explain why I think you should stay away from Vibrant Money System and what it’s all about from what I found in the members area.
Tell-Tale Signs of a Scam
There’s no way to tell what Vibrant Money System is about just by looking at the name. It’s some kind of “money system” but that doesn’t really tell us much.
However, there are some initial signs that I picked up on that helped me to decide that this “system” was one to stay away from. My years of experience with reviewing these “systems” came in handy and I was able to call this one even without getting into the members area.
When I first saw the sales page for this video months ago, it looked like all the other shady guru products with the black background and the typical overhyped headline with the video right under it. That was red light number one.
That’s not to say that it couldn’t be a useful product but if it was then they had started off on the wrong foot by using the same formula as the other scams before it.
Another thing that tipped me off was that the creator of this product was Travis Stephenson. Not John Sellers as the guy in the video says. John Sellers is yet another character created by Travis and used to cover up his involvement.
Travis Stephenson has been behind a long list of scams, some of them reviewed right here on this website. He generally doesn’t seem to care too much about what he releases since he just releases a new one every couple of months.
He’s been known to use fake screenshots, pay for fake testimonials and create characters like John Sellers so he could hide behind them.
Once I knew that Travis was behind Vibrant Money System, I knew exactly what I was dealing with.
Finally, two seconds into the video was all I needed to confirm that this was not going to turn out well. The first things that comes up is a video of a testimonial that I recognized from a bunch of other products. The blonde lady who says that she made a fortune using the Vibrant Money Software sells her services on a site called Fiverr for $5 per testimonial.
The Video is Filled with Lies
Not surprisingly, the video for Travis Stephenson’s Vibrant Money System if filled with lies.
They don’t show you how the software works but instead show you what you will be able to achieve when you use the software.
The software they say works by tapping into “the Deep Web“. They’re obviously saying this because people are generally interested in stuff that they don’t quite understand. How do you make money from a software that “taps into the deep web?”
Exclusivity and scarcity are two tactics that are used to reel you in. After the various testimonial intros, the video kicks off by saying things like:
- someone cared about you enough to send you to this secret site
- the software would never be released to the general public
- the website is being closed after 48 hours
- only a small group of invited people will get access
The kicker is that the website has been around since about late November or early December, at least 6 months now which is a far cry from 48 hours. And it’s probably going to be around a lot longer.
To warm you up, fake John Sellers introduces you to his wife and also his two sons who apparently had their college tuition paid for in full by dad and his software. Sellers sons photo is clearly a stock photo and when I researched it, I found that the photo had been edited and was being used by more than a dozen college or school websites.
John Sellers idea of gaining trust after lying for the entire video is to blast the shady vermin gurus so that people would listen to him. He does this several times in the video but the truth is that he’s the prime example of the shady vermin gurus and he’s doing exactly what they do.
There are lots of other lies in the video that I don’t want to spend to much time on like the fake testimonials and the fake “live call” with some guy Sellers found on Craigslist. And the fake earnings screenshots.
Don’t believe the earnings screenshots are fake? Here’s something for you to ponder.
Did you see it? What exactly is that number and how did it get there? Enough said!
Purchasing Vibrant Money System
It’s very important to know what you’re getting into before you give your credit card details on the order page. The following text is there in fineprint. It’s not hard to spot so if you’re going to order then you should have seen it.
This product is strictly for customers over the age of 18. A valid credit card acts as verification of this criteria. This product is 100% Risk-Free to try! Enroll today and your card will be charged $9.95 (one-time initial membership set-up fee). You will then be given a 5 day trial period from your authorization date. At the end of this period unless you cancel your trial, you will be charged the full price of $29.95 and every 30 days thereafter. You may cancel at any time – NO QUESTIONS Asked!
It says that they’re charging you $9.95 for a 5 day trial period but you can actually get the trial for $4.95 by trying to exit the page and as low as $1.95 by trying to exit the $4.95 trial fee.
However, what the fine print is saying is that this is a forced continuity charge. In other words, your card gets charged a small fee with the hopes that you forget to cancel and then they hit you with a bigger charge when the trial period is over. In this case, you get charged $29.95 every month until you cancel whether or not you are aware of it.
When I tried to take the trial, I entered all the required info and pressed the “complete order” button but got an error so I couldn’t access the members area.
I asked a friend to try ordering but he got similar results and also couldn’t access the members area. This was kinda puzzling to me because this is reportedly a hot offer that a lot of people are joining all over the world.
If you tried to order and didn’t get access, I’d like to hear about it in the comments so I know that it’s not just my friend and I.
Can You Make Money with Vibrant Money System?
As I said, I didn’t get into the members area so I don’t know what this software does but due to the way this is being promoted I’m really doubtful that this is something useful.
John Sellers (or Travis Stephenson) would like you to believe that you can point, click and start making money and it only takes 16 minutes of your time each day. Maybe you would like to believe that too.
I’m experienced and have been working online for 8 years. Making money online does not work that way. There is no software, no matter how secret, that can make you money with very little input, no experience on the part of the user and as fast as the “live” Skype call participant (a really bad actor) made it appear.
If they can’t show you how the software works in the video then it’s a sign that the software cannot sell itself as a worthy tool for making money online. Software are tools that aid the user, not a replacement. With no experience at making money online, there is no way you’re going to get a piece of software to do the work for you.
Here’s a Better Way
If you want to make money online without having to deal with scammers, there is a better way.
I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate, a site that teaches you how to make money with one of the easiest ways to set up a business online, affiliate marketing.
While the scammers would have you believe that you can sit back and make money the lazy way using their software and “done for you” systems, Wealthy Affiliate teaches you real strategies for building an online business that can keep paying you for years.
I’ve compared Wealthy Affiliate with Vibrant Money System and you can clearly see the difference in the value of each program.
Vibrant Money System is more interested in getting your money than helping you create a long term income and it shows in their deceptive marketing video and their reluctance to exhibit what their software does.
You’re better off using your time to learn how others are making full time incomes by tapping into their passions and creating value in exchange for commissions.
If you’ve tried Vibrant Money Systems, please let me know about your experience in the comment section below as it would also help others know what they’re getting into.
