And let me just say, I am not a member of RU Affiliates so I have no agenda to sign you up. I am just a blogger and online entrepreneur trying to help people avoid scams and find real online business training.

What Is RU Affiliates?

what is ru affiliates

RU Affiliates ( is an online network marketing company that specialises in using email autoresponders as a way to find and sign up new recruits.

With the slogan “We turn emails into ATMs”, RU Affiliates is a website and training course created in April 2017 specifically for Filipinos.

It was started by Wesley Bacate who lives in Laguna, Philippines.

The main training course is called IHX Factor; 11 training videos which show how to find recruits and build your down line. To join the course you have to pay P1,599.

How You Make Money With RU Affiliates

The only way you make money with RU Affiliates is by selling RU Affiliates.

Here is how their compensation plan works:

1. Direct Commission

You will earn P1,000 every time someone signs up for the course.

2. Shared Commission

As a bonus you will receive P200 every time you sign up 3 new referrals.

3. Goodwill Commission

Every time you sign up 3 more members in the scheme, your up line will earn P400 and your down line will receive P400.

Here's a Tagalog video explaining how the RU Affiliates compensation plan works:

Is RU Affiliates A Scammy Pyramid Scheme?

Yes 100%, RU Affiliates is definitely a scam and you should NOT get involved.

Stay as far away as you possibly can because RU Affiliates is now illegal in the Philippines because it is unlicensed and unregulated.

RU Affiliates is a pyramid scheme and now I will show you why.

Let's start with Wikipedia‘s definition of a pyramid scheme:

A pyramid scheme (or pyramid scams) is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme.

The whole RU Affiliates training is set up to teach you how to promote RU Affiliates only, for this reason I have no choice but to say it is a pyramid scheme.

But it is not just a pyramid scheme, it is an illegal pyramid scheme in the eyes of the Filipino government:

On the 7th November 2017, the Philippines Securities and Exchange Commission said anyone who is found promoting or recruiting people into the RU Affiliates program will be fined P5,000,000 and/or face 21 years in prison.

Be very careful: RU Affiliates is a very dangerous scam that could cause you to face criminal charges.

  1. Oh no, here we go again yet another ponzi scheme.

    Even before I got to your part where you mentioned that it is, I already knew it. It is already bad enough that the legal authorities are against them. *shakes head* We need more people like you to expose more online scams out there.

    I am curious about one thing though, is RU affiliates specifically for Filipinos only? And are the courses in English or Tagalog? (correct me if I’m wrong).

    • Hi Rab, yes the courses are all in Tagalog so aimed at Filipinos specifically. 

      Thanks for the encouragement, I’m just trying to get the word out to help save people losing their money through scams like these. If it helps even just one person to avoid falling victim to a scam then it’s worth it in my eyes.
