In his Mission Statement, Michael Force, the front man of Digital Altitude says, among other things…

“Our program was not designed for business people. It was designed for moms, dads, high school graduates, waiters and waitresses, passionate creatives, college dropouts and anyone in between”

Let me cut to the chase!

Empower Network was the Largest Pyramid Scheme ever on the Internet; founded by David Wood & David Sharpe, and launched on October 31, 2011. The pyramid imploded a short 3 years later, and 97% of almost 200,000 members lost significant amounts of money, some even their life savings!

You think I am making this up and lying to you, right? Take a look at the screenshot below; the official EN Income Disclosure for the period of January 1, 2013 to October 31, 2014.

And the 97-percenters, losing their money, have been “moms, dads, high school graduates, waiters and waitresses, passionate creatives, college dropouts and anyone in between“, the same group of everyday, hard working folks Michael Force is targeting with his Digital Altitude program.

By the end of 2014, most ‘founding members‘, and most of the top earners, have either left EN altogether, or tried to distance themselves from EN, announcing their departure like this guy.

iPAS 2 Review_James BonadiesName is James Bonadies, and I used to be a top producer in Empower Network.

Although I have a lot of respect for this business, I feel and felt extremely uncomfortable selling something that I learned is impossible for the average person to succeed at.

It is true, most of the time, the average person doesn’t do what is necessary to succeed online whether in Ipas, Empower Network, MTTB or any other “how to make money online” programs. The average person I say as if I am above average. Which I am not. Not even close. However, my results are far from average.

I got sick of shoving lies down the throats of innocent people, at the time I didn’t know they were lies, and got sick of selling the system so other people can sell the system. I call it the “revolving door to hell!” That is what it is…the revolving door to financial ruin.

 

So, what does Digital Altitude has to do with Empower Network, you may ask? Nothing and Everything!

The Modus Operandi is 100% Identical!

 

What Is Digital Altitude?

Digital Altitude was, supposedly, created by Michael Force, retired US Marine, and former Empower Network Top Producer, with a history of scam reports (mobilemoneycode.com – now defunct). 

It is a High Ticket MLM Pyramid scheme that teaches you the best ways to target unsuspecting and gullible opportunity seekers, and convince them that a membership in Digital Altitude will make them rich beyond imagination.

Members are called Affiliates and receive a commission for every new member they recruit into this scheme. At the same time, Affiliates are building their ‘downline‘ of affiliates, three tiers deep.

The only purpose of Digital Altitude is to recruit as many new members as you possible can, and build a huge team of affiliates.

 

How Does Digital Altitude Work?

They give you a $1, Fourteen-Day-Trial, which is nothing more than a good way to collect some of your personal data, most importantly, your credit card information. Other than that, you’ll get to watch a lengthy sales video, geared to convince you to join as a paying member. 

It will cost you $17 per month to become an affiliate. At that point, you are called an Aspire member, and you will have access to some training videos and a life-time coach. The coach is supposed to guide you through the pyramid, but the main purpose is to get as much of your hard earned money as possible. They are not really coaches, but highly trained boiler-room salespeople to close deals.

There are THREE Aspire levels with different cost, different commission payouts and different training levels. You see, they ‘drip-feed‘ you training for one simply reason: You want us to teach you more, you have to pay more.

 

Digital Altitude Aspire Levels:

Aspire Walker: $37 per month

  • 40% commission
  • 1 tier payout
  • Members Area
  • Start Up Training Videos

Why Are You Surprised?

Aspire Hiker: $67 per month

  • Up to 50% Commission
  • 2 Tiers of Payout
  • Members Area
  • Start Up Training Videos
  • Weekly Training
  • …and more

Aspire Climber: $127 per month       

  • Up to 60% Commission
  • 3 Tiers of Payout
  • Members Area
  • Weekly Training
  • And much, much more!

Of course, the Climber level is the most desirable level to be on, but many newbies (remember the waitresses, college drop-outs and stay-home-moms) may not have the financial means to whip out $144 every month just to see how things will work out. Anyways, you want to be a Climber for best results.

We covered the different species of affiliates, let’s move on to the “products” you will be selling. I almost choked to death when I looked at the stuff YOU MUST BUY before you have the PRIVILEGE to peddle it to your recruits, and collect your full commissions IF you close the deal yourself. In case you need the help of your ‘coach‘ to make the sale. you only get 20%, 30% or 40%, depending on your affiliate level.

 

The Digital Altitude Products:

There are 5 High Ticket products; they call them Membership,, which is more appropriate because they are not really tangible products. I am not going to list every little detail, or module of each membership; you can easily find these out from any one of the affiliates sales pages

 

1) The Base Membership: $595 one-time payment

This is a video based, motivational training, which consists of 12 modules in 3 sections…

  • Prepare
  • Launch
  • Grow

…your business. This covers subjects like…

Module 10: Create a captivating customer experience that reels ’em in and keeps ’em hooked.

Module 11: How to build a cult-like-tribe that hangs on your every word.

Module 12: How to build automated systems that save time and make you money while you sleep.

I can guess you’ll get the drift, right?

 

2) The Rise Membership: $1997 one-time payment

Again, a video based, motivational training, which consists of 19 modules in 5 sections…

  • Commit
  • Customers
  • Create
  • Words
  • Partners

and teaches you stuff like…

Module 10: How To Instantly Trigger A Powerful Desire In Your Customers’ Minds That Almost “Forces” Them To Buy.

WOW. Once you are done with this part, you know ‘how to twist your prospect’s arm“. LOL

 

3) The Ascend Membership: $9997 one-time payment

It’s time to move into the upper echelons of the pyramid; not into the very top though, that’s fully occupied already, but pretty high up. You are either filthy rich and don’t care much about money, or you did indeed build a downline that makes you enough dough, that spending 10 grand for a 3-day retreat in a hotel in Las Vegas won’t hurt too much. 

The $9997 covers travel and all accommodations for TWO, so you can bring your partner, spouse or friend. But think about it for a second; if you would book the whole trip yourself, I am certain you wouldn’t have to spend more than 6 thousand dollars. There is another nice little sum of at least $4,000 that goes into the pockets of the founders of this scheme.

But hey, a lot of folks like to rub shoulders with like minded buffoons, hyping themselves up and have a few drinks on their success. Oh yea, I almost forgot; they do talk and teach you about important topics like…

  • 6 Strategies To Scale Traffic: How to scale your traffic from a small initial trickle all the way up to millions of hits.
  • How To Build A Team: Discover the “power of duplication” and how it can literally “multiply” your sales exponentially.

Hmmm, you could have googled these 2 phrases and found a bunch of good info FOR FREE!

 

4) The Peak Membership: $16,997 one-time payment

Are you bored yet? We are almost there. The Peak offers you 20 topics, which are kind of the ‘garden variety‘, like…

  • Create More Efficiency In Your Business: Find out how to ‘grease your business’ wheels‘ so it runs faster & smoother.
  • Adding Massive Value: Find out how to add massive value to your products and services and get your customers hungry for what you’re selling.
  • Secure Your Retirement Income: 5 strategies to secure an autopilot retirement income that pays you while you sleep.

They have to keep the big bucks coming in; I am talking about the few scheisters that cooked this whole thing up and reside securely in the very top of the pyramid.

 

5) The Apex Membership: $27,997 one-time payment

OK, I’ll get it. The GOAL is to make it to the top. It cost only 28 grand to be invited to a 7-day retreat, again in Las Vegas. They do have an agenda for each day, besides laughing all the way to the bank. Guess what? If you make it there, you are now officially a member of the “LESS THAN 1 PERCENT“; those that made the big bucks.

This comes with the privilege of laughing at the 50% of still active members struggling to fill the holes in their downlines, created by the great number of members that simply took their losses and quit, and desperately hanging on, trying to recoup their investment. 

 

Is Digital Altitude A Scam?

In my humble opinion, yes, Digital Altitude is a scam and I will tell you why. Legally, they may get away with it because of the way the law is written. Their memberships may qualify as “tangible products”, although their course teaches ONLY how to recruit new members.

This Is Why Digital Altitude Is A Scam!

1) You Have To Pay a Monthly Fee To Be An Affiliate!

Affiliate Marketing is the most popular way to make money online, and millions of people do make a livable income by promoting other people’s products. None of the legitimate affiliate networks, and companies with their own affiliate program (see Amazon), charges any fee from their affiliates. 

2) You Have To Purchase The Product You Want To Promote!

Only pyramid schemes require their ‘affiliates’ to purchase the product in order to promote it, even if they don’t want to use it for themselves. 

3) You Only Get Commission For The Level You Are A Member!

Assume you join and can only afford the “Climber” Level @ $127 per month and the $17 Affiliate fee per month. You refer a new member, which decides, and can afford, to buy into the “Ascend” level @ a price tag of $9997. Since you not a member at that level, YOU WILL NOT receive the commission for your referral.  A system like this forces members to spend money they can ill afford. I call it a scam.

Here is how legitimate affiliate marketing works. If you promote a $10 product and the customer arrives at the merchant’s site through your link, and buys a $500 product instead, you will receive the commission.

4) If You Don’t Recruit, You Are Screwed!

You need to understand that you can make money ONLY if you recruit, recruit and recruit; like the devil chases after souls, you need to target ‘dreamchasers’. James Bonadies admitted that he “got sick of shoving lies down the throats of innocent people, and simply quit, although he made a ton of money.

5) The Coaches Are Not Coaches!

As soon as you join Digital Altitude a ‘personal coach‘ will be assigned to you. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Let me tell you what they really are, and I speak from my own experience. They are well trained, hard core Boiler Room sales people with one purpose only…to make you upgrade to a higher level. Take my word for it; I’ve been there with a similar scam, back then when I was an inexperienced dreamchaser (you can contact me for details, if you wish).

6) If Your Coach Helps, Your Commission Gets Cut!

Moving right along. It is not easy to recruit, and it is particularly hard in a high ticket scheme. In cases where you need help from your ‘coach‘ to close a deal, they cut your commission; instead of 60% you’ll only get 40%. How cool is that?

7) Is Digital Altitude Legit?

I mentioned earlier that the law in regards to the legitimacy of MLM pyramid schemes is vague and not very well written. However, one point has been made very clear:

If the main income is derived from recruiting new members, then the operation is ILLEGITIMATE.

 

Conclusion To My Digital Altitude Review

2_thumbs-downI laid it out for you as I see it; honest, albeit biased. Admittingly, I am not a friend of MLMs for many reasons, but there are many legitimate companies, selling tangible products people want to buy and use, using this system. The main problem is, however, that only a very small percentage of members actually make money. 

Members with no or little success leave faster than their spaces in the downlines can be filled again. Mary Kay, the grandmother of MLMs said very eloquently…”It’s like keeping the bathtub full with the drain open“.

Unless you are an experienced marketer and able to build a stable, and productive downline, you should stay away from MLM, particularly from those that DO NOT sell tangible and useful products.

Digital Altitude is selling a dream, that will turn into a nightmare for many participants. Yes, they will teach you some marketing strategies that could be useful in a legitimate online business. They cover topics like email marketing, how to create sales funnels, how to drive paid and free traffic to your offers, etc. But at an insane price tag. Most of this information can be found easily on the net; some free, some at a cost that is affordable for waitresses, stay-home parents and college drop-outs.

 

Here Is An Alternative To Scams:

 

Making money online, legitimately, is possible, but you have to understand, that it is a business, and needs to be treated as such. It requires:

  • Knowledge 
  • Hard Work
  • Determination
  • Some Investment (between $50 and $100 per month)

I can show you the best way to get started, if you are interested in leaving the 9-to-5 rat race and becoming your own boss.

 

Yes, I want to find out about John’s #1 Recommendation!

 

Before you leave, let me say that much: Wealthy Affiliate is NOT an MLM or a pyramid scheme as some folks say. It is by far the best Internet Marketing Learning Center you can find. They are in business for over 10 years and taught over 500,000 everything necessary to build a sustainable business.

Yes, I am promoting WA with this blog and receive commissions for referring new members, but members ARE NOT required to promote WA; they can build any kind of business they want.

I have several other sites promoting PHYSICAL products as affiliate marketer, making a full time, livable income.

So, hit the link above and find out what Wealthy Affiliate is all about.

 

That’s all for today folks and I would love to hear your opinion about my Digital Altitude Review, or any other opinion you want us to hear about. So, don’t be shy and leave us your 5 cents worth on your way out. Like always, thanks for stopping by…

  1. Good lord man.

    I have made well over $100k online as an affiliate marketer and product creator (Not in MLM or Network marketing) and reading this article really makes me feel horrible for the poor souls you are misleading. I don’t know if you are doing this intentionally or you’re just not as knowledgeable as you think you are.

    FIRST: Your ENTIRE argument is null.

    97-98% of people fail to make money online in absolutely every single route imaginable.
    Whether affiliate marketing (Clickbank, Wealthy Affiliate, CJ, JvZoo etc)
    whether binary options, forex etc
    whether CPA/PPC/PPV
    The list goes on.

    The failure rate will ALWAYS be 97-98%
    The very same applies to the gym down the street… in fact most people
    dish out almost $500 a year on gym memberships they never even use.
    Point being 97% of people fail to get in shape (quit too soon).

    In order to make money online the fundamentals virtually stay the same
    across whatever route you decide to go down.

    You need to drive targeted traffic to a product, service or opportunity.
    You need to build TRUST with your audience IF you are branding yourself (you should be).
    You do this by giving away FREE value (real value).
    You do this by free methods (seo, youtube, social media)
    and paid methods (fb ads, yt ads, bing ads, solo ads, media buys etc)

    It doesn’t matter if you are promoting Wealthy Affiliate or Digital Altitude
    you won’t make money with either one of them if you don’t understand this.

    The difference between the two is they’re just different vehicles people prefer…

    Think of WA as a toyota and DA as a bugatti.

    You can waste your time promoting $37-$397 tiny products or short cut
    your way through and start promoting high ticket $2997+ stuff.

    So many people fail to realize THIS is what they’re really paying for with an
    opportunity like this. Take it from someone who has only been able to charge
    up to $1997 for my own personal coaching so far (credibility, value etc) being able to
    just flat out “buy” your own high ticket program with integrated leverage that you can
    resell with it’s own websites, teams, systems etc is WELL worth the investment.

    Or you can go the hard route like i did… start small, build a following, create your OWN
    products, services and coaching…. stay up for 20 hours a day for 8 months doing all
    of it and still not having HALF the vehicle Digital Altitude lets you just jump right into.

    Point of this “Rant” is to shed a different perspective on this topic because people
    need to know this is NOT a scam… you are buying the rights to a virtual “done for you”
    business in a box that YOU are responsible for advertising as with ANY F**king
    business whether you built one yourself or promote others (as an affiliate).

    • Aaron, I have heard this argument before…of course you are right if you say ‘xx% of people fail’, no matter what they try. Where you are wrong though is the fact that DA is NOT selling a ‘tangible, done for you product out of the box'(like any other f**ing business), but a worthless piece of crap only good for recruiting other poor folks into DA. Spare me and us your wisdom, it’s worth nothing.

  2. I was on step six and I talked with my coach today. Which was super strange because for one they tell you to be punctual when setting up your appintment for Skype. And he was like 10 minutes late. He also wouldn’t show his face and said he had some older people in their 60s question his ability to help them make money cause he looked young. So we basically did a phone call. Now I realize when reading these reviews it was all bs. I left the call after 8 minutes saying to myself. “That’s it” we didn’t even talk about much and it definitely seemed very brief and unhelpful. He wasn’t excited or anything so i think he was tired of acting the part of a so called coach. So happy I read all these comments!

  3. Thanks for the information and your thought on DA. I spent over two weeks looking through the steps and at sites that supposedly offered unbiased thoughts regarding the opportunity to make money using the system. Only each site merely supplied another way to offer DA. I just this morning paid my first 37.00. Only a small loss should I not be able to recover the payment. I was sold on the concept but the prices as stated are up there. I was going to also today ask a family member who is holding some money they offered to provide me, for half of it to start in with the Rise/Base level. glad now I wanted to research DA a bit more. To the one or more above who seem to find fault with John offering or suggesting WA don’t fret. You are not obligated to check it out. But someone else might find it useful.

  4. Well I sure am glad I came across this. I have just finished my 6 steps and was considering whether to proceed or not. might be time to hang back a bit and do some more research. I can’t possibly give away money I haven’t got just to give it to someone else. Thanks for the review

  5. Roger Bell

    John, Wow I’m so glad I found your review. Thanks a ton and my bank account thanks you as well. I was ready to jump in with both feet and spend at least $2,000 or so to get to the higher levels so I could earn huge commissions. The sad part of this is I was once a member of Empower Network and I really should have learned my lesson from that experience. Well, because all their top members make videos that fill you with excitement and places they are visiting around the world they can almost hypnotize you into joining. Thanks again. As to Wealthy Affiliate can you tell me how long you have been a member? Also how long did it take you to start earning quit my job kind of money? (2,000 to $5,000 monthly) Can you email me with more info on WA?

  6. Chirag Jain

    John, this is a pretty good job you’re doing here. Its been 3 days i have subscribed paying $1. Completed 4 steps so far, and honestly, they could’ve had summed it all in just one bloody video. Well, after have read all these comments, AND your valuable feedback, I am going to cancel this RIGHT AWAY. I am so glad i came across your blog before it was too late. Also, i would like to connect with you via E-mail.

    Regards
    Chirag

  7. wish I had found this before I made a payment on the base/rise level, after I made the payment and my coach changed things got funny. My questions weren’t being answered my calls went to voicemail and when I did get ahold of this idiot he would just unlock the next 2 videos and leave me to it. I tried to get my money back using my bank but because the payment went through paypal the bank can’t do anything. So lesson learned the hard way 618 dollars lost. I’m done with the internet it’s got too many sharks trying to get your money and they get away with it when they get someone like paypal to process their orders. I’ll bet they sleep good and eat good on all that ill gotten gains…

    • Thanks for chiming in. Too sad you’ve been had. However, you have a good chance to get your money back. Dispute the payment at PAYPAL…it may take 30 days, but they are very ‘anti scam’. Just tell them in detail why you insist on a refund…just lay it out as you did here.
      As for “I am done with the Internet”: Don’t just give up. I was scammed also before I became a member of Wealthy Affiliate and learned how to make money online, without being taken by som unethical folks.

  8. Hi John Worthy after reading all the comments I feel very sick, Betrayed,i just can’t believe i’m in this same situation being a so called victim i joined Aspire which in term is Digital Altitude on the 15 of September 2016 $1ASPIRE Walker Trial – $1.00 – ASPIRE Walker Trial $1.00 as an a Affiliate from a program which I’m in and was bought here by referral of Stone Evans if anyone knows who he is,anyway i got to step 4 and just finish step 5 and for you to continue on you had to do a Non-Disclosure Agreement a online at Right Signature:easy online document signing,then you are able to proceed to step 6 but i just had a vision in my mind to check it out and behold it led me to this page and after reading all the comments and reply i have to say I Am very shocked Indeed and another thing that caught my suspicion is the coach after looking at the list members of coaches at Digital Altitude i could not see my coach on the list has anyone have Neil Crisp as there coach please Enlighten me with this Info and your true responses much Appreciated to u all and also to u Mr John Worthy ps i was with Wealthy Affiliate and wasn’t really to sure about it as well not getting what i expected and the rankings going up and down,anyway let me know to cancel card or email support or the billing department to stop billing me i think its a 14 day trial on the $1.00 so i think i got until the 29th correct me if I;m wrong cheers

  9. Just for awareness, MOBE filed a lawsuit against Digital Altitude alledgin copyright infringement, federal theft of trade secrets and other counts. I find this supremely ironic. See http://norcalrecord.com/stories/510989093-individual-allegedly-copied-former-employer-s-business-training-videos

    Court documents are at http://www.plainsite.org/dockets/3084n84ug/california-central-district-court/mobe-ltd-v-digital-altitude-llc-et-al/ Note: You would need to contact an attorney or have a plainsite.org (legal) membership to see the text of the paperwork. Based upon side by side images at http://barXXXXXXXXX.com/digital-altitude, it looks to me like it’s a smoking gun case.

    If you are marketing for Digital Altitude or invested in the company, it might be time to ask a good attorney a few pertinent questions.

  10. noel spring

    hi, i just cancelled my $1 trial, after speaking to my first “coach” and having my strategy session, which is more him explaining funding options and not any form of help, even when i emailed him prior with the address tehy supplied, it came back as undeliverable…. funny, and when i filled out the “strategy session survey” a screen popped up saying it was offline, with a nice picture of gregg and some woman with a drink.

    anyhow, yeah i had a pretty bad feeling about da after that.
    wish i still had the address of that far off relitive that lived in africa who died recently and wanted me to have all their money.

    too good to be true

    • Hi Noel, thanks for your input. It’s not funny, but I had to laugh when I read your definition of “DA COACHING”. And I am getting called names and being threatened with lawsuits for pointing exactly these things out in my review. Hopefully you let your CC provider know NOT to honor any billing from DA.

  11. Hi!
    I’m glad to found this post and this has honestly convinced me not to proceed on buying ANY of DA’s products. At the beginning, I thought that it’s not a scam because the registration fee is only $1 and I’ve listened to their video lessons that made me at least a “hope” to become wealthy. On the first set of videos (maybe from 1-3), they said that they will be the one to do ALL the marketing and SEO for you which was amazing and I was thinking that this is it! Also, it gave me an impression at start that they have online products that are usable to all people that are using the Internet. They also mentioned that their coaches will help you on each and every step that you’ll take but it’s ALL THE OTHER WAY AROUND! On the 5th and 6th video, that’s when they will discuss about their products and I found out that these are useful only to people that are registered. And yes, it’s still a pyramiding/networking scheme, NO DOWNLINE, NO SALE! Also, I was really thinking that their coaches will help me on each and every strategy for my investment. But they’re not! I asked them if they’ll be the one to market my products and they said that I’m on my own! To those who are dreaming of having a million of dollars through Digital Altitude, I would say that you’ll just be wasting your time, money and dream on this scam!

    • Thanks for your comment Hoper. First thing I do when I come across a new “get super rich program” is look at their PRODUCT. If it is something a normal person would/could buy and actually USE, then I would consider it to be legit. Their programs are useless, unless you are a genius in selling the dream to other people.

  12. I’ve been in Digital Altitude for 4 months now. Yes it is high ticket, so it does pay big commission, but also costs more to join then most biz opps online. I made over $10,000 so far and Im very happy with DA. Its a solid program that is very well done and professional. I also like that they close sales for you.

  13. the biggest scam today is: Tecademics.com

    they will be the next Empower Network

  14. If you’ve lost money to Digital Altitude or their Aspire System, please share you experience on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/lostmoneytoaffiliateprogram or give that page a like. Given that private FB groups are being used to hide deception on FB having a public FB page well may help others from being scammed. Note that this site is NOT being used for marketing in any fashion.

  15. Hi my name is jacob and im one of those high school grads who went straight to work two days after i graduated, had my own place that I payed for at just 18 years old but also like many ive dreamed of making a better life for myself to where i dont have to bust my ass every day to fill the rich mans pocket while im currently living in my jeep having payed $700 for and yes i lost my house because i was stupid enough to invite people into my home whome i thought were struggling like i was but ended up being moochers letting me pay for my groceries just so they can eat and drink it all. I fell behind and im the one who got royally fucked. That $700 jeep may not be much to a lot of people but it is to me and to find something like this scheme is heartbreaking because for one brief moment i thought i could finally make a name for myself, put my younger sister through a good nursing school, get my brother away fron killing himself every day to support his newly found family, and to give my mother whose worked her whole life to give what little she had so we had clothes on our backs a life of comfort and being free of the every day stress of making ends meet. But this just comes to prove that this world will never change due to greed of money and power! The biggest money sucking ass wholes that i can think of are the polititians but thats a whole other story i dont wonna get into. But what im getting at is how in your right mind do think its okay to take money from people like me who are ACTUALLY trying to do things right. Now if i were on the winning side i know id do everything i can to see a struggling family smile for once. BUT IF ONLY RIGHT

    • Hello Jacob,
      Sorry about all your troubles,there are ways to make money online without any up front cost or monthly fees,one is with WA,then there is ClickBank and Clicksure.
      There are business that are free you have to promote,here is one of them I was lucky to find Free7.THWglobal.com
      All you need to do watch videos,everything is explain on the site. There is nothing to buy,no fees,whatsoever. Yes there is cost to for this. Matter of fact there is a cost for anything you do,you have to learn,you need to learn how to promote,how to get traffic etc. Just like if you were to join the service,you have bootcamp,going to college,your sister going to nursing school. You have to learn.
      None of these will make you rich over night,it will take hard work,but once you learn and get it started,you will make good money. It could take you few months to a year or more,but once you start the money will come in,and you will never look back again. Good luck in all you do,May God turn your life and family life around.

  16. Dajah Bennett

    I joined for a dollar and didnt like and cant get a refund! and i cant get in touch with ANYONE!

    • Hi Daja, it’s not the one dollar you should worry about. Make sure you let your credit card issuer know that NO payment should be made to DA, and or have them issue a new card and void the old one.

  17. It is funny that you have an image of earnings from the year 2013 to 2014. This shows just how big a piece of sh!* you are, not caring whatsoever about the truth. Digital Altitude launched THIS YEAR, idiot. Again, enjoy getting your ass handed to you in court.

    • You again Petey boy with your name calling and feeble threats. If you could read, and comprehend what you are reading, you would understand that the image of the EN Earnings Report is meant to demonstrate how these pyramid schemes are bad for 98% of all participants. A far as your threats…bring it on. In the meantime, I am going to approve the incoming comments of DA members that already realize what scam it is, so you can come back and try to debunk these.

      I also receive and collect copies of the complaints filed with the FTC and Internet Crime Complaint Center by those DA members that didn’t want to leave their name on my comment section. Sweet dreams Petey boy.

  18. I joined the 14-day “free trial” at $1 (why they call it free if you still have a to pay a small fee?) and at the end of 6, useless steps/videos from Mr.Force where I’ve learned nothing that I didn’t know back in 2006 (I’ve been online quite some time) my coach, during my so-called “strategy call” discussed no strategies, on the contrary she bullied me into paying 2000$ right away even when I explained I wanted to go slowly, understand more of how it really works. The call ended with her telling me to get the funds, call my bank. etc. That’s when I realized she’s not even a coach!
    I’ve spent 2 weeks thinking this might be a good solution, but I agree with you John, it definitely IS NOT. Stay away people 🙁

  19. These reviews are very helpful, I joined DA in July 20016 and have finished all the initial videos and tutorials at ASPIRE level with 37 dollars monthly payments, I have not made a single dollar. I have now realized that DA is not business I would invest for an number of reasons. Firstly this business is only achievable to people who have money to invest and have some back up plan in case you dont make any profits. Secondly, their level fees vary and are expensive and yet you are not guaranteed to make money regardless of how much you have paid. For example, you are required to generate traffic to your site yourself using the ads you purchase again from them; really!, how much can one keep paying?. Although the traffic coaches assures you of closing the deals, the commission is lessened when they jump in. The teaching at ASPIRE, BASE, RISE and ASCEND appear repetitive and yet you have to pay more as you go up the ladder. And lastly, the idea of leveraging on the DA system work by your continued recruiting people into DA otherwise you cant make any money. I can not honestly say DA is a scam, but one need to look very carefully at one`s financial status before joining in because it costs money, and a lot of it to be with DA. Good luck to all wanting to join DA.

  20. You are stupid broke ass .. ex top producer in EN will never use the word pyramid scheme .. you even have no idea what is the definition of financial pyramid! DA sell digital information prodcuts.

    • Whatever…showing off your stupidity with your fake Name and email address. All you can do with the ‘digital information products’ is wipe your behind. Expensive toilet tissue, indeed

  21. The review he wrote is was just to promote his own deal to sell you.. Read it and then his pitch! Well done Jon..

    • Wrong Andrew…I write reviews to let my readers know what REALLY goes on with some of the products out there. Check out the categories on my site and browse; you will be surprised what you may learn. Yes, I promote Wealthy Affiliate, which is one of the few scam free programs, and by far the BEST online learning center for people who understand that it takes KNOWLEDGE and the willingness to work in order to succeed in Internet Marketing. DA, like so many other similar “PRODUCTS” promise the pie in the sky, but the only ones making real money are the founders and founding members. Read through my comments here, and the number of very unhappy commenters grows almost daily. And don’t forget the important point. I warn people because I fell for BS like DA before I wised up
      I am used to the name calling and insults from people that have no ethics, and they can threaten to sue me until hell freezes over. I know one thing for sure, they never do, because they feel the heat already. I know of 8 complaints filed against DA with the Internet Scam Report Center, and there will be more in the near future.

  22. Got Scammed

    Got scammed at the $2K “RISE” level. What an idiot I am. Initial “Coach” told me he was at that level and making thousands of dollars a month after only a few months with very little ad spend. A big fat lie. As soon as I joined I am shuffled to a higher power coach dude with some motivational crap all designed to up sell you. I had no money for that and actually put out the $2K in faith and hope it would help me in a desperate financial situation. It made it worse. I am deeper in debt now. Very expensive lesson. I doubt that Michael Force is even an ex-Marine which I actually am. Thats what sucked me in. I begged for a refund under hardship. Nothing. Even Skyped my former Marine Michael, nothing. My house is having to be sold. My marriage is at risk. Bad timing for me to have found this deal. Wiser and sadder. Semper Fi

    • Hi “J’, thanks for chiming in. Sorry to hear that you joined the long list of people that lost their money.

    • Same thing happened to me at that level. After getting rise the “coach told me if I didn’t get Ascend that he would see me in 9-10 months because he would not waste his time. I have called DA because they have a refund policy on the site as well as in their Affiliate Agreement.

      But check this out when you call the customer service number on the site, it’s not actually the company number. You reach other affiliates who do customer service virtually. I called and asked for the “Main” number and the rep said he didn’t know or couldn’t find the number. I have since filed a claim with my bank.

    • You should have joined in th EASYUP istead of aspire. You can make money if you promote.

    • Bro did you read the policy first?

      The high ticket products are not refundable….only if you do so within 24 hours because will be shared to other members…that’s why it is not.

  23. Tina Williams

    I just joined DA and am on steps 16 and 17. Yesterday my “coach” literally brought me to tears because I told him I wasn’t giving them anymore money to buy into a higher tier until I make profits…He made me feel inferior and sent me a link for funding…I’ve already given them $600(borrowed from family). I’m soon to meet my traffic “coach” and I will keep you posted.Thank you

    • Hi Tina, unfortunately, that’s how it is. All they want is the money from their recruits. All these schemes work the same way. A coach is supposed to give you a helping hand during a learning period, but these coaches are sales people. Sorry to say that, but get out while your losses are manageable.

      • Hey John do you have an email address or some way I can reach you? DA has a refund policy but I have been calling customer service since Friday. I get ahold of a rep then they take a message and “escalate” it.

  24. I been trying to get into social media marketing and some freelance work stuff. So I have joined lots of groups on Facebook, to discuss things with other people find jobs etc (i find these forums helpful for my work). so now I keep getting these messages and friend request of random people who are always talking about travelling and having freedom and working only few hours a week. They all seem to have an amazing life, great pictures of exotic places and how little they have to work and then there are pictures of how much the have earned each week (its usually 10000 or more).
    It seems strange that you don’t need to work much but you live like a king! It just seems so dodgy. At first I was like sounds great but more i read about it and started to think about it the more messed up it looks. I really hope that people wont join this scam. Of course the guys at top are rich cause they get money off people who believe their crap. I just wish that these sore of scams would be illegal.
    I could think of many other things to do with that money and if you want to get somewhere in life you need to work hard for it, nothing comes that easy.

    • Pauline, I am in this business for a long time and I have learned, the hard way, that if it sounds too good to be true, then it’s definitely not.

  25. Nervous mother

    I just started and my two weeks ends today or tomorrow I want to leave but they already have my info what am I gonna do

    • Hi Jessica, just cancel and also send them a cellation by email. Make sure to contact your credit card company and advice them NOT to make any payment.

  26. Hey dumb a$$ you might want to ask Kyle and Carson about GETTING THE $H-IT SUED OUT OF THEM for lying and defamation. Maybe they don’t tell you guys that a company called MOBE is suing them for $10 million, but calling something a Pyramid scheme and smearing their good name is CRIMINAL and illegal. And trying to syphon DA customers for YOUR benefit is just effing pathetic, scum bag stuff. And your puny, pathetic, beotch ass fishing for pennies with WA, while we at DA make actual REAL money? Let’s just say I know you will NOT be able to afford the attorneys.

    Just because you are stuck in a poor and middle class mindset, and will remain POOR the rest of your life, you are doing a disservice to people actually willing to take a RISK with their lives. Guys like you make me sick. There is NOTHING “required” to purchase at DA. I know many people who started at the bottom and worked their way up! But you don’t care about facts, do you? Anything to make a quick buck for yourself. You sir, are a pathetic loser, and I cannot WAIT to contact Michael Force and imagine you soiling yourself when you receive those legal papers.

    • Whatever…you are just like all the other pyramid freaks

      Peter, you call me names, but that’s ok and I’m not even offended. I know your kind long enough to understand the pains. However, just look at the comment from Tina above.

    • Glad to see this system creates such kind and generous people like Peter.I wonder if the system taught Peter how to put dollar symbols at the end of words to emphasize his already incoherent message.

    • 10 million is a penny on the dollar to Kyle and Carson. They are just refusing to be bulied and letting their attorneys have something to occupy themselves with. Your name calling shows that you are failing to close those deals as people are now wiser than before. They search for program reviews before joining clearly hipped programs like DA. You are showing all your frustration and despair, which often follows when you realise that you bought snake oil. I laugh at people who are pushed into this scam by certain people with more than 10 websites from which they generate leads yet they only have a facebook page… lol. Every day a negative review of DA & MOBE pops up. Let’s see how far they can go with covering up the truth by suing bloggers. They will also sue you if you want a refund because that’s what they are good at. If you are not careful you will work your entire life just to raise money to buy the next level or up-sell. The hardcore sales man they call coaches are there to close deals for the person who recruited you and they get a cut. I bet there are 10 more levels coming. One will be called Pinnacle costing $100 000… lol. Just to make sure no cent leaves the company. When you leave DA it’s like on the day you were born. You leave with nothing save for a few PDFs… hahaha. If I leave WA l will have my websites for life on which l can promote any product of my choice. In DA you pay them for the name and tools to promote the same to others. You again pay for advertising e.g. buying solo ads. If you get broke, the sales persons introduce you to loan sharks. If you fail, you are blamed for not buying the next up-sell. Next time when you comment, cool down you don’t own DA, you are just one of the victims!

      • Hi Amos, great comment. There is no cure for ‘being stupid’. I can handle the insults and name calling, and the ‘law suit’ threats. I just forward them to the Internet Crime Complaint Center to be amended to the complaint.

    • The definition of pyramide scheme used by the FBI is at https://www.fbi.gov/scams-and-safety/common-fraud-schemes/pyramid-schemes and as follows:

      “As in Ponzi schemes, the money collected from newer victims of pyramid schemes is paid to earlier victims to provide a veneer of legitimacy. In pyramid schemes, however, the victims themselves are induced to recruit further victims through the payment of recruitment commissions.

      More specifically, pyramid schemes—also referred to as “franchise fraud” or “chain referral schemes”—are marketing and investment frauds in which an individual is offered a distributorship or franchise to market a particular product. The real profit is earned, not by the sale of the product, but by the sale of new distributorships. …”

      If it acts like a skunk, smells like a skunk, and tastes like a skunk; it is a skunk! If a high percentage of sales are purely to individuals pursuing the business opportunity, it is a smelly skunk.

  27. Ben Hambley

    So are you just hating on other companies to promote yours? That’s awesome. This whole sit back and relax thing you keep saying….I have had success because I put work in. Cost free advertising. Figuring the ins and outs of Facebook. Sounds like you are just promoting WA hardcore.

    • Ben, I am not hating other companies…just telling it like it is. My ethics won’t allow me to promote stuff like DA. Just read Tina’s comment above. I am proud to promote a company that is in business for over 10 years now, instead of pyramids that pop up, and disappear 18 months later, leaving behind a bunch of folks who lost a bunch of money. Actually, I feel sorry for you and your kind.

  28. Amazing. Perplexed internet marketers jumping from opportunity to opportunity convincing the people they sponsor to follow them through these opportunities BUT that’s what MLM is about. They call it affiliate opportunities now of course. From traffic monsoon to digital altitude to exitus to whatever new comes along or until what they are doing stops working and making them the income they made at first. Ok, about digital altitude, the coaches were nice that I had, but didn’t really seem knowledgeable about driving converting traffic to your site other than a few fb tips. Like this guy said on the video, they tell you to google it. They also sell traffic packages, correct me if I’m wrong, so you can drive traffic to your site. This is sketchy, IMO. If I am wrong don’t quote me on that, so apologies if I’m wrong about the traffic packages. They get you in with the $1.00 trial, and the aim I was told was to at least go to the Rise level, so my commissions would be greater which is true. But before you start to go to your traffic coach, your current coach will have a group meeting with you and some other people on skype and the coach will begin to tell you the importance of positioning yourself higher, because you will be an idiot to pass up those higher commissions which you will have to purchase the license to training events that come close to $7,000 and up over $27,000 one time payments plus your monthly fee of either $37, $67, or $127 plus an affiliate fee of $17.00 if I’m recalling this right. Don’t let them find out you have good credit, because that’s when they introduce you to take out a loan to buy the higher ticket event items. This isn’t necessarily wrong, because they don’t shove it down your throat and many people take out loans to start an opportunity with other business start-ups, but I’m just putting that out there. I think that this program can make people money, if you find people that don’t know a lot about internet marketing. They tell you of course you can attract people to your digital altittude link through free traffic, but the real money comes when you start using paid traffic (note that they suggest this traffic to you in packages). btw, I was told it would take around $60 a day to attract enough people for a hope of decent conversions to make a certain amount. So, let’s just say there are 30 days in that month, you are paying $1,800 in that month, so you better make sure you position yourself with the higher ticket items in hopes to keep your business operations working and can afford that each month. All you are doing it seems is paying a lot for traffic to get people to go through your link. There is a complaint about the founder of this company, but that may just be a disgruntle business partner of the past. I really won’t comment on that, since I haven’t seen many negative things about Mr. Force. You will make money with this, but I’m wondering how long this business will last comparing sustainability. Good luck to all in whatever business you are in, but do your research before hopping into any company. Look for positive and negative reviews, so you can make a leveled decision before you jump in, especially before you go ALL IN as some people love to use this term!

    • Hi A.W. thanks for the comment. Yes, this is the big problem with these kinds of ‘products’…You have to invest a lot, hope and pray. One thing is for sure, though; it won’t last long

      • Thanks for all you do. There’s awesome information on here! Continued success to you!

      • Thank you so much for this info i just joined for a 1 for the 14 days and i a getting out because i am not trying to give these people all of my hard earned money if they are not going to really help me money is hard to come by these days I was just trying make a little extra money on the side I have a daycare and don’t really need this at all in my life it is a sham that there are people out there like this i am glad that i looked this info up before i got in to deep

        Thanks for the info

  29. I would like to say I am a high school student and I was looking to make money over the summer. I then came across this Digital Altitude website from a popular Instagram account (@millionaire_mentor). I then paid $1 for the trial and I found out that these “coaches” were all set up as part of this scam to sell me stuff on the basis of success and to have my friends join. Every single “training” in the videos were already stuff that are available for free on YouTube. I left a week before my trial ended and I cancelled my membership because I knew that making money wasn’t possible for the average person with this proven method. I am definitely looking to file a complaint as soon as possible against Digital Altitude. This is a complete scam. Your review will help inform many people out there. I make most of my money nowadays building apps for local businesses and affiliate marketing makes only about 2% of my income. I am still building my website so expect it to be available soon.

    • Hi Jazil, yes it is unethical, at least. Legally, they may get away with it, but as I explained, 94% of the folks investing real money in it will lose.

  30. Scorned Wive's Club of Pyramid Culters

    I’m one of the hungry middle of the divorce from one of the promoters whom is boasting online of his grand per day earnings. Wow how it would b nice to have at least a bag of dog food he said he’d be furnishing for his dog I’m feeding. I have bought it and forced to eat myself from the local food bank as my measly wages pay the mortgage I was stuck with. And his outstanding IRS taxes! One pyramid to the next he promotes boasting of wealth yet no mention how he abandoned his wife and home and bills leaving me hungry with a ruined financial future. I know the truth. Stand pictured affront that big black Hummer and boast of lies and promises of wealth yet you are only a big old ball of Clay.

    • Thank you. I truly feel for and with you. There is really not much more I could say, other than that I hope you post your comment on all the sites, which are promoting this scam.

    • Well, I’d rather be living that life too (the one you are) than actually believing a hummer has value and that an ocean view actually makes life meaningful. My suspicion is the wealthy people in this game are likely the most miserable. Your struggle leads to greater growth and you will be thankful in the end. The greater the struggle, the greater the life.

  31. Hey man, yeah DA is deff a scam, I was doing everything my coach told me to do and one day after like 2 or three months payment he was like “ya you should quit cause I only work with top clients and you’re obviously not one”…I was like dude you just told me we were going to discuss finance options so I can take it to the next level…. Obviously not only a scam but highly unethical. I also had a WA website for awhile, but I wanted to ask you a question…With WA it doesn’t seem like you’re actually selling a product either it seems your simply throwing amazon and google ads in hopes you get commission…This is really shammy as well and it doesn’t have as good as turn-out as people think.

    • Hi Kody, thanks for your comment. You are right about DA, but you are wrong about WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a learning center that teaches people the fundamentals of online marketing. You know, building a website, SEO, some technical stuff, how to use social networks, PPC etc. It then is up to the student/member which direction they want to take their business. They are not required to promote WA, but they can. If you promote WA you will get a recurring commission for your referrals, but not from what your referrals are doing.

      If you want to make money in Affiliate Marketing there are different ways to get about it. You are not just randomly throwing amazon ads on your site pages, there is a bit more involved. Like anything and everything in life…if you want success you have to learn and work hard. You say you joined WA and had no success. I respond with pointing a finger at you and say “your own fault”.

      • Sounds like John is an affiliate of WA. Great try John. You almost had me.

        • Yes, and proud to promote a scam free company that is in business for over 10 years now, in contrast to the crap Mike Force is pushing. What is it, 4 or 5 in the last 5 years…like Empower Network & Mobile Money Code?

    • You should’ve taken a screenshot of the conversation (if it was trough the chat or emails) and the posed it on Facebook site what promote the DA scam. So other people could see it as well.

  32. Hi, I know a few big marketers and they are making a big money with this. I was about to join but now I´m starting to realize this may be not a good idea.
    The one thing I still dont know the answer is how much money I need to spend (on traffic, tools..) at the 37 level to start make some money?

    Do you have any guess?

    Thank you

    • What can I say Berry? Buy in with about 5 grand, then spend another 2 grand a month to get traffic to your website. Lean back and pray.

  33. michelle

    Thanks for letting me know that I was going to join but now I’m not!

  34. Withheld for Obvious Reasons

    I am a victim of DA and have filed an internet crime complaint based upon the pyramid scheme structure and other items. If you are a victim, please do likewise at https://www.ic3.gov/complaint/splash.aspx. This kind of deception and material misrepresentation needs to be stopped.

    • Sorry to hear that, noname. You are the third person I know off that filed a complaint. This scam is not going to be around much longer

  35. ashton king

    I am In DA right now. I joined July 10 2016 became a rise member on July 20 2016 and thought that everything would work out. I really was planning on getting another job invest all of that money into DA sacrifice sleep and quality of my education at school for DA. Just because I am a big dreamer. Honestly I kept telling myself that something didn’t feel right. My first coach was very nice, but knew nothing about DA. She told me that her husband was a coach and that she had just became a coach. She stated later as we spoke that she was actually considering being an affiliate. This tells me that these coaches that Michael was telling about that have years of experience, and don’t worry they will answer all of you questions, is not 100% true. I began to question the legtimacy of the system when I asked the top earner for a loan. That is what you are taught in one of the steps ask friends and family. He said he can’t. I went on the get a loan but still asked several top earners in the DA community if they could spare anything. Guess what those “multimillionares” couldn’t or didn’t want to. my belief is that they don’t want you to become an APEX member because that kills the chances of them taking your recruits. They have an interest to keep you slowly moving through the process to slowly suck your money out, because the waitress, single mom, the college student wont have 50,000 to front. Yeah seeing that I am a recent member the prices have went up to 50,000 doubling that is if you want the other packages. I am in the process of canceling. There is just too much for me to feel uneasy about. The system isn’t sustainable for the long run. If you do everything that they suggest like me then you will eventually go and buy a book by Robert Kyosaki cashflow quadrant. That book alone was enough to make me quit DA. It has some good information. There is one thing in that book that did it for me. It states that Investors look for tried and true proven sustainable systems with great products. DA has a good product. But it’s system in which it delivers this information is to expensive has been tried and always fails in the end. Way to shoot yourself in the foot DA. Michael Force shows you how he and the top 1% live day to day because all they do is sell the big dreamers, waitresses, mom and pops and everyone else that has hopes and aspirations a box of crap.

  36. The same incredible holy shit like Project Breakthrough.

  37. Holy crap those are some high proces. I was just looking into Digital Attitude but I didn’t realize that they could cost upwords of $28,000. That is just insane.

    When I was looking into it they seemed legit to me at first. They were very convincing and they had a really good story so I considered buying into it. Before I gave them my credit card and took the plunge I decided to do a little research and thank god I did.

    After reading your review I realize that I may have just dodged a bullet on this one. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t about to spend $28,000 but I was considering signing up for the $1 trial.

    Basically I’m looking for a way to make some extra money online but I don’t really have a lot of knowledge in this field. That’s why Digital Attitude looked appealing to me because they kept saying that it’s perfect for regular people. Anyways, I’m glad I read your review.

    Thanks

    • Robert, thanks for visiting my site. HOLY CRAP, that’s what I said. I was one of the ‘regular people’ back then when I thought Empower Network would be a good way to make money. Guess what? I lost almost $3,000 with that crap. In the beginning, their ‘product’ was a blogging platform running within their system. You got a sub-domain site and, of course, traffic was nil unless you spent money on paid traffic. But that was besides the real purpose.

      All they taught was how to talk other people into joining…typical pyramid scheme. After the blogging mess died, they brought in the Costa Rica scam. Same thing, but with double the prices to move up in the pyramid. Of course, in order to get commission, you had to pay for that particular level.

      This thing here was supposedly created by this former marine. I don’t believe it for several reasons. NO ONE person is able to pull a scam like this off by itself. I suspect that there is group of founders, all former EN top earners.

      Anyways, all I can say, and will say to anyone willing to listen…RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN
