Is AGLOCO A Scam?
Posted on 12th February, 2007
AGLOCO is a new money making scheme that pays its members to surf the web. Agloco also pay its members for friends they refer and so on. Basically it’s a combination of various online activities which are
The concept is similar to the now defunct All Advantage, where people get paid by installing a toolbar on their web browser to view ads. It was reported that AGLOCO was founded by the same people who created AllAdvantage.
One of the biggest proponents of AGLOCO at the moment is John Chow who has recruited one of the largest numbers of downline in the AGLOCO network.
Darren Rowse of ProBlogger.net has also written about his first impressions on AGLOCO. Like Darren, I also think that it just seems to be a lot of promises but nothing concrete as to how the concept would really benefit advertisers and members in the long run.
While I try to be open minded about it, I can’t help but be a little skeptical about how this MLM and ‘paid to surf’ combination would be able to stay afloat for long. What differentiate AGLOGO from a typical “pyramid/ponzi scheme” though is that there’s no cost involved to participate in AGLOCO. Old members are not being paid by new members.
Anyway, Shawn Collins has written about how he has been getting spam emails from AGLOCO themselves and how they claimed that Bill Gates was behind the idea.
In one of the posts, Brian Greenwald, one of the AGLOCO Development Team members stated
“We have comments from Bill Gates (and now this week, YouTube Founder Chad Hurley) indicating that we are on the right track.”
The saddest thing is, Bill Gates and Chad Hurley comments have nothing to do with AGLOCO.
