You could email mastercard and ask if they have any promotions like what you mentioned. Of course they will say no and you could pass the email on to your sister.
If you can get the website address you could email it to Mastercard and they will shut down the website.

There is a "life time mastercard", but all the references Ive seen seem to have "Vegas" right next to it....

All you can do is give her all the warnings you can and leave her to it...

Add: If they get her this credit card (possibly under false pretenses) and the first thing they do is ask for the number and authorisation code from the back.

Only 5% of the work for 100% of the income? Wow! That really adds up. Free registration! Waiting for Kaos36 to sign up and find out how much money his sister is going to make ; ).

From this "review":


In this Stiforp review you will find out more about the company, the Stiforp compensation plan and products. Stiforp (Profits spelled backwards) is a network marketing company founded in 2011 by Naudar Khazan (who is also founder of AliveMax). While AliveMax retails nutritional and skincare products, Stiforp is a company that offers online marketing tools that could benefit your online marketing business. Top networker Frank Astheimer has build approximately 90% of the downline of this company.


Translation: pyramid scheme.


As a Stiforp resp you are obliged to pay a $40 membership fee and a monthly membership fee of $9.95 in order to stay in the compensation program. In return Stiforp offers you a wide range of online marketing tools including landing pages, flash movie presentations, lead capture pages, auto responders, business contacts management, traffic rotators and banner ads.


Translation: you get pages where you ask people to sign up to pay for this "system" so you get paid, your previous level gets paid and so on. In turn they use these wonderful "resources" (landing page, flash movie, lead capture page) to recruit more people into this pyramid scheme.


When you join Stiforp, you receive a place in a 2 by 14 forced matrix that also includes fast start and matching bonuses. The Stiforp Compensation plan also offers a guaranteed Powerline Bonus of $4 and a fast start bonus of $25 per sign up of a new Stiforp team member. The problem in this 2 by 14 matrix is that many people who join never even recruit more than 2 new team members. So if you join Stiforp to make some fast profit, I will have to disappoint you. The big money that can be earned based on the Stiforp compensation plan is especially made by the heavy hitters (top recruiters), which is fairy normal in a network marketing company.


This is a pyramid scheme.


If you didn?t manage to recruit people for your network marketing business before Stiforp came along, then you also won?t be after joining Stiforp. You can decide to promote the company and build a downline with it, but the retention rate (the amount of active customers) of this kind of product is extremely low. As soon as people see that they are not making money just by being part of the company, they will leave your team. 95% of the people who are part of a network marketing company doesn?t even make enough money to cover their monthly autoship. Just think about it: why would people keep paying for marketing tools when they don?t even use them?


They leave because it's a pyramid scheme and they aren't the ones making money.

There are thousands of people whose only "product" is a position in one of these Ponzy schemes.
