|shopping sherlock scam or not|
This is said to be based in the US. The company behind this is called "Best In U". Their office is located in Santa Monica California. This is a web app that helps you find the best deals online. It will be installed in your web browser like chrome, firefox or safari and every time you search for something you want to buy in the internet it will help you find the lowest price possible for that item. A very brilliant and handy app to have right? Well if you want to be a distributor you have to pay $249. Still interested?
You may ask why!!???
Look at Yahoo, Facebook, Google they have top of the line technologies but they are free to use.. Why is shopping sherlock costing you money???
I think I have the answer. Those internet giants with far more powerful free technology, products and services are not engaged in Networking or Multi Level Marketing (MLM). They got money their money from advertisers and they advertise them to us when we use their free technologies.
How about Shopping Sherlock?
I will be frank on this, for me, this really smells fishy. Instead of advertisers, they got most of their money from us users. I don't think Shopping Sherlock will have any value that people should pay premium for its use. Shopping Sherlock is far more inferior compared to those free to use technologies provided by established internet companies.
In my opinion, the reason why it will cost you money is because shopping sherlock is engaged in MLM/Networking. Part of the money you pay will be the commission of the one who introduce Shopping Sherlock to you. In addition, you also have to pay the commissions of those useless layers of uplines going up the pyramid.
For me I consider shopping sherlock a pyramiding scheme. I can not see value of service for this web app compared to for example the free to use Google shopping, there is no compelling reason for people to buy this and you earn mainly by recruitment.
These reasons are enough to convince me that Shopping Sherlock is a Pyramiding Scheme and possibly a Scam.
If you want to have the best deals online Google shopping is better. I tested it myself, see the video below:
As you can see in the video everything is made very convenient for shopping sherlock, It was set in USA shops setting and it was tasked to search a very common product (Ipod touch), yet it failed. How much more if it was in other countries? how will it do for uncommon products?
Why did they already expand to the Philippines? Although it is growing, we still do not hugely buy online, we even do not have Amazon here.
Is it because they are only interested in getting money out us? Am I right to say that Shopping sherlock is a pyramiding scheme?
