This is probably not the right section to put this.  Being about IT business and all that i thought you guys might of heard of this online business. 

I need help as my sister is pretty much naive when it comes to work from home online businesses with her big dreams of making quick easy money.  I tried to tell her its most likely a scam so be careful.  She wont tell me the name of the business only bits and pieces.  I mention to her do they ask for money up front is it like one of those pyramid  scams.  No,  more or less, but in the past failed online business she has taken on never were a success for her so im thinking she doesn't want her brother to tell her i told you so.

Anyhow what i do know is this

You have to be referred first before you can join once you join you are given a MasterCard. 

She has been trying it out for about a month now.

Money up front? Don't know.

So not much to go on and for all i know it could be genuine.  Google is no help.  all i get is  help sites about credit card fraud

Thanks

I think its one of these pyramid schemes sounds like one to me where only those few up top of the ladder make the real money and those below never do but they are tricked into thinking the more invites they make the further up the ladder they go. She was invited by a friend
