Do you know who you’re doing business with? What’s the real story behind Shop To Earn and Shop To Earth? Why does this background information look so sketchy? Here’s what a reader of this blog found…
I’ve been approached over the past couple of months about shoptoearn, primarily by people in the real estate industry.
So I did a little research and was somewhat horrified at what I learned. I’m sharing the results with you in the hope that you will find it useful sometime to share with your readers and perhaps help some avoid shattered hopes and destroyed relationships.

In reality this address is their accountant (who is also listed as their CFO?)

10 years to develop, part of it being the relationships with the various vendors? I applied and have received links identical (except for ID numbers) with the links used on the shoptoearn sites within HOURS, not years. A website that consists of thumbnails and links that could be constructed in about one hour.
You too can apply for these affiliate programs at linkshare.com or cj.com, to just name a couple.
Try finding legitimate corporate info, contact information or any kind of history on any of the principals involved in shop2earn. I couldn’t. The domains they use are all registered under names that aren’t principals of the company or with the contact info blocked by the registrar.
Training materials that are not posted on their sites. Sales pitches that are not posted on their sites. All to avoid future litigation due to unfulfilled promises.
Underlying data management software purchased from genconsult.com, that they promise can be up and running for you in a few weeks, including their Genesis Virtual Office MLM package (used at shop2earn, if you examine the source html) which will enable you to “be in business in 2-4 weeks and have the confidence to look and feel like a Corporate Giant.”
I’m not normally a person that gets involved in causes and have a strong ‘caveat emptor’ approach to the marketplace. This MLM, however, reeks. With people suffering in this economy, I hate to see them get their hopes up based on a scheme that can disappear overnight with little or no accountability.
