As the title describes a few days ago, I was offered the typical scam to make a purchase of 500$ and I introduce 2 other people to my so called business and I will be paid 50$ for each couple.
This is new to Jordan, and since all the population here consists of ignorant and fool. scamming them is pretty easy.
Q-Net or so did those people introduced themselves invited me into a coffee shop which turned later to be their hub.
as I’m invited to drink what I like the dude spent 1:30 hours of my time on drawing on paper trying to persuade me.
I felt sorry for the dude how the heck could he be convinced into this himself. trying to save him is totally useless he’s totally convinced that he can cover the expense of 500$ that he spent on a piece of glass with supernatural powers.
What made me believe I was facing a scam is pretty simple, if Q-net was such a respectable high-end company would it appoint a job interview to a cafe?
Why do you have to make a purchase to work?
with rich content of superstitious products, and amazing cheap hotel reservations for those who join them by purchasing products and introducing the company to others.
their claims of being secured by Verisign are a lie since they claim it’s a “Verizon Cyberworld Security” notice that Verizon is an internet service provider that works locally and presumable a virtual entity by itself!
Q-net made a scam so huge for one person to scope and they get easily convinced it’s real after a few clicks on the web, a company does indeed make money enough to spend a percentage of it to market itself. into professional employment, marketing, web development and more.

I also found this artcile about the “maths” behind Q-Net scam, provided by a Qnet member himself.
What is a SCAM? scam is basically defined as the act of tricking people.
how do we define that Q-Net is a Scam Scheme?
If Q-net makes 10% people rich at the cost of 75% poor, and 15% evened out..
the majority of people wither they try hard or lazy off.. will still not get what they are promised.
which eventually makes Q-net an 75% SCAMMER!
aside the maths there’s another way… the products.
some people did for fact track down the watch manufacturing to China low-class factories , where the labels were simply engraved on them afterwards upon a any company’s request.
others analyzed the Bio-Disk in laboratories and discovered that it’s actually a normal glass with microscopic pores that’s enriched with some minerals that make the water taste like.. ( rust if you ask me :S )
and the scientist IAN! (inventor of Bio-Disk) didn’t actually ever conduct research, or even wrote a paper on it. what’s worth mentioning is, Q-Net does make people’s wildest dreams come true..
the system works because most people would cast aside they’re principles and sell their pride for the price as big as ( happiness till the end )….. forgetting the part that chances they won’t get it is over 75%. no matter how hard and dedicated they are. :)
Updated 20-Janurary-2012 :
After studying Q-net more thoroughly thanks to the much “useful” comments that guided me,
I concluded that Q-net has indeed developed a revolutionary marketing business model.
that can indeed change the ways of our current strangling economy; however it falls in scam category for the following “but not limited to” reasons:
- Sell of suspicious unconfirmed products:
Vendors of Q-net products offer cheap made products for a prices so high as 500$
You can’t buy the product with out joining the business model for cheaper, you still pay the same price, whether it’s a BioDisk, or some pendent.
- Vendors are unrelated, and unaccounted for:
Q-net takes not track-back responsibility or count for it’s employees, this model can easily be changed and corrupted by it’s employees who’d venture a risk for bigger income; such as spamming people, tricking people, giving Q-net a bad reputation
- Potential Imposters
I came across many people who claim to be working for Q-net offering other unheard of products and video reviews, they all share a single Qnet account and sell home consumer products such as “awesome kitchen knives for 500$”
and after the purchase they relocate and become untraceable.
for a while I confused them for real Q-net members, since they use the name they show you the website, and show you some of Qnet products they have; but they sell you unrelated subject, and you don’t get anything… since Q-net doesn’t have a set of rues like “make sure you get your Q-net account before complete payment” or something. there are many people now making money claiming they are from Q-net when they’re not.
- The Future
Many business strategists scratch their heads to find better use for the Internet to help small business flourish, but the big corporations don’t want to be beaten by small onces; also the small starting business will become greater the more visitors, income, reputation it generates.
Corporations should work hard to stay on top instead of trying to prohibit small business go big.
from what I noticed that Q-net still works underground, it’s hard to find, easy to be scammed by duplicates, and has no legal employment contracts that gives agreement terms and rights.
Many people would see Q-net an opportunity to make money, but very few who’d actually study the business model and try to improve it; Q-net needs better minds at the moment, it’s current state is fragile.
