Is Forex Trading a Pyramid Scheme? - Step By Step Entrepreneur

Does forex trading actually make any money or is it just a discreet pyramid scheme?

Seems like every forex trader is trying to sell their knowledge on to everyone they can. Makes me think it’s really just a scam. Any forex traders that can give an insite?

I think that my friend is in a forex trading pyramid scheme "Walking ATMS"

My friend asked me if I wanted to join a group of people meeting and recruiting people for what seems like a pyramid scheme. They have videos on youtube (https://youtu.be/x5w02T_3JiI) he doesn't seem to have paid in yet but I'm worried that more people will be affected by this anyone else seen anything similar?

If you’ve ever gotten involved in a Pyramid scheme like Forex Trading or Flat Tummy Tea, what were you thinking when you joined? Did you know it was a scheme and didn’t care? Or were you genuinely fooled? What are your thoughts on the onslaught of insane social media posts to your friends about it?

pyramid scheme forex trading

Old freind i had who i grew up with randomly called me and put me on the phone with some guy, and the two of them explained to me their business. They basically said they have a guy at the top who is a multi millionaire, and that he teaches forex trading and marketing to people in his company. They told me that in order to join the company, i need to pay them $300 and then bring in 2 freinds by the end of the month. After that i earn money weekly. They also said that they host events weekly where they talk about trading and other things. Normally i would brush this off and point it out as a scheme, but the guy who talked to me also said that many other people who i was freinds with a few years back are in the company and making good money. I’m conflicted on what i should believe because alot of people who i knew personally are in this “company”. They also said that if i don’t make money, then they don’t, and vice versa. Is this a pyramid scheme?

What is the business model for these damn instagram pyramid scheme people? The ones where they post a photo of their expensive car and ask people to sign up to, usually forex trading or google ads. Are they actually successful investors or do they rent the cars and make money from the scheme?

Forex vs stock market

This is meant as a discussion. Which is generally more profitable for day trading. Pros and cons of both. Etc I know this is very complicated but I wanna start day trading and I don’t know which I wanna do. I’m 19 and I’m college college and I like analytics.

My(21m) sister (27f) joined an mlm/ pyramid scheme cult called imarkets live academy and Im worried about her.

So my sister a month or two ago called me, as she occasionally will. We have a very good relationship, but Ill be honest in saying shes not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Not that shes necessarily stupid, but extremely gullible and easy to take advantage of. Shes into astrology, shit like The Secret, and easily gets sucked in by 'guru' like people. So onto the call, she calls and tells me about a new opportunity she thinks ill be into. She starts talking to me about Forex (foreign exchange trading) and how its the key to financial freedom and I could make a lot of money without really working. Now I know about forex and know that like stocks, it can be a viable way to invest and make money. However, the profits she was saying its possible to make just didnt pass the sniff test. And then she tells me I can learn how to do all of this by joining a class that, get this, is almost 300 dollars to enroll, and around 250 a month. She gets me on the phone with one of her friends telling me Ill be learning from the best and ill be making enough that the fees will look like nothing. I am skeptical throughout this whole thing, mind you. She then tells me that if I join i can also get people to join under me and get paid monthly for referrals. This is when my BS meter shot through the roof. Immediately i said " this sounds like a multi level marketing scam and Im not interested. If i want to learn to trade forex Ill learn from people who dont charge for the info and dont require me to recruit people". My sis was initially very pushy about it and told me shit like poor stands for passing over opportunities repeatedly. I told her that if something sounds too good to be true. Fast forward to now, and its almost the only thing my sister posts about on social media. Shes constantly advertising about and does these intsagram live things talking about it. I decide to listen to some of it. Despite being around trading forex, barely any of it is talking about trading. Its all motivational nonsense, about being your own boss and manifesting wealth, gaining financial independence. Worse, a lot of it talks about this being a "family". I find out the class is called imarkets live academy and is known on the internet as a pyramid scheme and as cult like. Everyone whos in it flaunts fake luxury lifestyles and pushes fake motivational crap. Im afraid for my sister, Im afraid that she'll get sucked in and spend all of her time recruiting for a bullshit company that doesnt give a fuck except for squeezing money out of vulnerable people, and that she'll end up losing all her money. They do copy paste trading and she doesnt know dick about the market, and one day shes gonna go all in and lose what little she has. The problem is once shes in something she wont listen to other people, and worse shes very charasmatic and socially abled and knows enough stupid people that she probably has recruited enough people that shes probably breaking even on the fees. And shes gonna keep going until it blows up in her face and it consumes her entire life. She was even going to come to my state for my 21st and didnt because she got invited to one of these conferences. I dont know how to convince her what shes doing is immoral and will blow up in her face, but i dont want her to feel like Im talking down to her or calling her stupid. Im just at a loss.

MMO Forex Trading

Hey all,
So this didn’t pop up in the search thread and I wanted to get more input on it. I’ve got a buddy who’s balls deep in a Forex (Foreign Currency Exchange) pyramid scheme called “MMO” (Money Moves Only).
These guys have justified it NOT being a scheme because there is a “dual income” opportunity. I’ll explain: - First you show up to the cult initiation and give them $250 USD to start investing as well as a monthly fee to have access to “the software”.
So that’s why it apparently isn’t a scheme - because you get paid by the company to recruit and are freely investing your own money.
Now, in my buddies defense, he has made some decent cash (around 30k). He’s recruited over 1000 people and is “chairman of his region”. I know the top top top % of pyramid schemes actually do make some money, but it doesn’t dismiss the unethical model of the whole thing and the dick heads that support it.
If you all know anymore about this or similar Forex trading schemes, comment below! I’m trying to help him cut and run with the money and actually start investing in longer term, more stable markets. He’s got a fucking engineering degree too so I’m trying to get him to use that shit.
——
TLDR: Foreign Currency Exchange schemes, have you ever heard about them? If so, what do you know about them and have you heard of MMO?

Go ahead and get hustled

Tried to save a very dumb girl from an obvious pyramid scheme today and it went over like a lead balloon. The pyramid scheme involves forex trading. The organization is out of Atlanta and it’s all over social media. It’s a get rich quick scheme basically. I did a ton of research on it by using FB. Then I went on the BBB website and sure enough, there were almost 500 complaints from people who were bamboozled. This isn’t even an MLM because there is no product. It’s a straight pyramid scheme. I wasn’t friends with her on FB, so I just messaged her bf and told him that I did some digging and found a lot of dirt on this situation. I suggested he have her look at the BBB complaints. He’s obviously went around in circles with her on this because he told me to tell her myself. I said that I didn’t know her. He goes “oh well.” Not only does the scheme want you to pay $235 upfront to join, they have you pay with bitcoin so that you can’t get your money back. They also charge $175.00 a month in fees and try to sell you all kinds of bogus trading packets. You never actually learn trading though. They just want you to recruit people. Anyway she was furious that I suggested this was a scam. I told her she could do whatever she wants. I was just looking out. Instead of offering any kind of evidence to the contrary, she tried to recruit me. I said nahhhh, I’m good. That was the end of that. She’s brainwashed I guess. She’ll have to lose her ass before she wakes up.

Shed some light on the truth?

I hear about forex on a weekly bases now, but everyone who explains it makes it seem like I’m joining a pyramid scheme. I trade regular stocks, and people say “your smart you just need a family behind you”. Stocks don’t give me the quick money I’m looking for. I’m looking to made 30 dollars a day, or at least 200 a week. Is that even possible with forex? People tell me I have to put in a thousand dollars to start trading is that true? What is this whole “join my family” thing people keep bringing up? Lastly, if I wanted to independently trade in forex could I? don’t want to get rich quick or replace a job, just some money to buy food through out the day. I hear that there’s different platforms to trade on or brokers to use, what’s a good one for my short term goals?

I need help convincing my friend that IM academy is not the way

Recently my friend has been posting all over his stories about getting people into forex and how he's in IM academy and all the advertisement that you can make money and it'll change your life.
I did a ton of research on it and turns out, bam it's an MLM and pyramid scheme that's just ripping people off. Now note that I've never known anything about forex or trading at all prior to this and even I could tell it's just garbage. He however won't listen to me no matter what I say. I even got multiple other friends to try to explain to him that it's a pyramid scheme but he's too far sucked into it and won't realize it. I'm practically losing a friend over this and he won't listen to me no matter what.
He even tried telling kids that if their parents don't let them sign up for the academy, they can just get a visa gift card without their parents knowing and sign up for the academy when it literally costs $300 monthly. I just don't know what I can do anymore. I guess I want to try to show him this thread to get him to realize he's being practically brainwashed but it might be too late. is there anything I can do?
I'm also thinking of learning forex through babypips and other free sources myself because it looks like an interesting start into trading and just expanding my knowledge. I also want to show him he doesn't need these trade house garbage academies. So guys, what do I do?

Why does Forex gets such a bad rep?

If you don't know what I am talking about, just type it up. Take 15 seconds of your time, go in google images, and see the difference when you type "Forex lifestyle" and "stock market lifestyle".
Theoretically, Forex trading isn't much different than stock trading. Both are financial markets using charts with candlestick that create the same patterns. Both rely on reports, news and the economy. Also, just like the stock market, banks and big insitutions trade forex too.
In fact, forex is the largest financial market in the world with a daily volume around $6.6 trillion compared to only $200 billions for all the stock markets. Forex is responsible for the exchange of goods between countries. It is literally the foundation of a worldwide economy.
So why is it that when someone asks you what you do for a living or that when you tell someone you're trading forex, you always get that weird suspicious look as if you're a fraud yourself.
Why is it that people don't take seriously what you do and what you love doing, because they have this weird idea of a pyramid scheme created in their head. People are so lost. I mean, how could it even be a scam lmao. No matter what you trade: stocks, options, etf, bonds, forex, name them all... trading is trading.
As long as I am making money and know what I am doing, and couldn't care less about other people's opinion nowdays lol. But lately I've been asking myself this question and I simply wanted to know other people's opinions.
So back to my question: why does Forex gets such a bad rep?
